Australia’s Thunder Down Under

Standard

Ilang beses na sinasabi ng Mommy ko ito saken. Sabi nya funny daw ito, kase everytime na dumadaan sila naririnig nya mga tao nagtatawanan.

I asked baka naman parang Magic Mike yan, no daw. Chona backed her up na it’s funny and not bastos. So in short, na-convince ako manood.

We had VIP tickets, so bandang harapan kame.

Goodness, di ko kinaya. Bawal ang camera inside while on going ang show, but one time they allowed us to take pics and vids and we can post it daw sa SocMed, just tag and follow. Anyways, it’s not that I’m KJ or something. Pero nanay ko kasama ko. I would’ve enjoyed it better if kasama ko mga friends ko.

One guy threw his pinunit sando and it fell on my face. Hahahaha ayun, Mommy took it and for souvenir daw.

They all have this pandesals sa tummy, and ang gugwapo. Well, of course they’re Australians. Hahaha

I had fun even awkward saken manood a show like this with the mudra. Hahaha

After the show, hinayaan ko muna sila ni Raul maglaro, and I went to the Casino’s lounge for a drink and smoke. Hahaha

One small glass of frozen margarita costs $11. Syet diba. Buti na lang masarap. Kung tumambay lang ako with Mommy and Raul, $1 lang for sure. But since I want to smoke, lumayo ako sa kanila. And I had 2 glasses.

I met this Officer later on. Kinausap nya ako bigla. His name is Richard, he’s from New York. Ok naman ang chikahan namin. Until I saw Mommy and Raul at the bar na rin, pero di sila lumapit, nanonood lang din sila nung band. Haay. So Richard and I bid goodbye na. He’ll look for his friend pa raw na may nakilala na. We exchanged numbers din.

Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque Du Soleil

Standard

I am not a fan of MJ. Oo, may ilan songs sya na gusto ko, but not a fan. Wala nga akong MJ songs sa playlists ko.

Pero nung pinakita saken ng BIL ko yun isang vid ng show, na-excite ako. Gusto ko sya bigla mapanood.

Buti naka-plano si Mommy na panoorin namin.

Pagdating ko pa lang ng Vegas, naka-calendar na kay Mommy kelan kame manonood. Pinayagan pa nya ako na maghanap ng ibang kasama if I want to, and pwede pa nya kame bigyan one night sa Excalibur. Kaso, san naman ako hahanap ng kasama. Syempre kaming dalawa ang nanood.

Raul dropped us off at the Mandalay Bay and diretso na kame ni Mommy sa MJ ONE Theatre. Diretso sa seats namin, and waited for the show to start. Bawal ang cameras/camera phones while on going yung show. Kaya before and after lang ako nakapag pic. And outside the theatre.

Show was awesome! Got goosebumps, and super amazed ako, ang galing. Alam mo yon, parang buhay pa rin si MJ. They really did a good job.

I want to see this show again pag bumalik ako ng Las Vegas.

SSSS

Standard

Nope, it’s not Social Security number guys.

This 4 capital S you see on your boarding pass is the S you dont want to see when traveling.

Last year, day before our flight to the US, I couldnt check in online. But when I tried to check in daddy, it went through naman. Hmm medyo natakot ako kase ang natatandaan ko lang parang something about security that I need to check in at the airport na.

Well, buti maaga aga kame nagpunta sa airport.

Nag-check in ako pagpasok pa lang sa kiosk. And a Delta employee helped us printe our boarding passes. I didnt notice pa this SSSS.

Went pass thru the Immigration and another x-ray where you need to remove your shoes, watches, belt, coins anything na tutunog.

Until we reached our gate. Don lang ako sinabihan ng isang Delta staff na I need to be screened. And dont worry she says coz one time lang daw ito. So I went inside this cubicle and she asked me to show my hands, nakaharap sa taas and nakaharap sa baba, she also asked me to lift my shirt, hanggang bandang bra lang naman. They were nice naman. And that’s it. I asked if lumabas ba ako ng gate, do I need to do it again, no daw. Buti  naman din. And wala naman na ulet ganon when we arrived and left Narita, and Atlanta.

Wala ako alam about this until yesterday. When my friend posted his boarding pass on facebook and binilugan nya yang SSSS and with a caption “Randomized”. Nagka bulb light agad ako and naalala ko yung saken. I remember staff saying na ramdomized screening lang daw.

I googled it. Hassle much pala yon for others. Like bubuksan pa yun bag mo, and kung ano ano atang interview and all. It’s a good thing super dali lang nung saken.

So I checked my boarding pass, voila. There’s SSSS under my name.

Japanese Dinner

Standard

Nag-deliver si Derick kahapon sa First Gen, so di sya nakapag-lunch dahil inaabangan na yun item. Pagbalik nya office, gutom daw sya. Syempre nagbibiruan ng ayaan. Birong, pwede maging seryoso. Hahaha

Kaya tinanong ko san sila kakain ni Alei. Hindi pa raw alam. After nila mag-text text, sabi nya “Japanese daw”, aba game ako. Paborito ko kaya. Kung saan, later na raw.

So umuwi muna sya, then before 9pm, nag-message na sya na mag Little Tokyo daw kame, ok naman saken coz marami choices.

Dinaanan ko sila, and diretso na kame.

Sa Izakaya Kikufuji kame pumasok. Hmm mukhang mahal, pero ok lang. Ang dami choices, pero dahil matagal na ako nagke-crave sa katsu, I ordered Hire Katsu (P245). And nakakita kase ako ng Sushi menu nag pwede per piece. Ewan ko naman kung baket hindi ko napansin, na sushi pala yon, nakita ko lang basta kase na Ebi (P65/piece), so ang thinking ko Ebi Tempura. Tinanong ko pa sila Derick and Alei kung gusto nila, puro sila na ok lang, so sabi ko sabihin na nila para alam ko ilang kunin ko. Putcha pagdating, sushi nga, akala ko pa nung una, order nila. Yon pala, yon yung order ko. Tawa kame ng tawa kase akala nila gusto ko talaga yung hilaw na hipon. Oh well, kinda ok naman.

Pagdating ng Katsu ko, ano ba yon, ang panget ng itsura. Para sa ganong restaurant, expect mo na maganda naman kahit papano pagkakaluto.

Then yun food ni Derick, duda namin nakalimutan, ang tagal eh. Tapos sa kanya pa yung may miso soup, sarap.

Busog naman kame. Alei ordered Yakisoba (P190), Derick ordered Chicken Teriyaki Don (P265), then nag yakitori (kung yon nga ba talaga tawag, Aspara Bacon P60, Enoki Bacon P60) sila, tuna sashimi (Maguro P250) na ang itim na at ang lalaki ng cut, california maki (P220/6pcs), coke in can P70 and extra rice P65.

Oh one more thing, di pala smile ang mga servers nila 😦

I think, I’d still go to Yabu or the like for a Katsu, and Dad’s (Saisaki) for a good and unlimited tempura.

My Samgyupsal Experience

Standard

Been hearing about this, been seeing this kung san san. Even si Derick paborito nya, kaya nung nag-aya sila and sabi nila mag Korean kame, kahit wala akong alam sa mga Korean food, I said ok.

So we went in Cafe Chosun in Malate. Tinanong nila ako kung mag-unli daw ba ako kase if not, di ako pwede sumama sa table nila. Sige!

No idea ano in-order nung mag-asawa, basta sila nag-decide. Hahaha

Naaliw ako, pero ang-messy kainin. Hahaha But I loved the steamed egg. They also have miso soup, tapos iba ibang meat. Beef and Pork.

Busog din ako, nag-rice kase ako eh. Hehehe
