My first day of school

   Well my first day was alright. But i had a problem waking up early. My sister had to wake me up because I really wont wake up. I was really use to waking up late in summer. But i got no choice. Anyway i meet up with my old friends back in school. We just talk and talk until classes started. And my class was alright when i went there of course i have to introduce myself in every subject. I notice that most of my teachers where guys. I have 7 subjects 5 were guys 2 were girls. But its not a big deal. My first day was alright. I have ti repeat the same thing for 300 days. Hope i will survive.

School starts tom

  I know that in the USA and Europe summer just started. But in the Philippines summer just ended and school is about to start. Its really sad though but i got no choice i have to face reality even if i don't want to. Like the saying. "All good things must come to an end." Okay i'll just stay home and just get ready for tomorrow.

Leaving Sydney and hello Gold Coast (Day 4)

   In the afternoon around 3pm my family arrived at the airport. And we were really early. Well its better than being late. Anyway we just stayed at the airport cafeteria. And just had late lunch there and just wait for it. We waited for 2 hours just doing nothing. My dad was just using his laptop and just working. I think he even had a Phone conference with his boss. Which i discovered that he's and Aussie. Anyway i just played with my Iphone my sister also. My mom and my younger sister was just wandering around. We just did this for 2 hours. After that we just waited in the waiting area or something for 30 min for the boarding. Afterwards when they announce the boarding of our flight tons of people were in line and my family just waited. Except for me i just went in line my dad just game me my boarding pass and left. So i went ahead to the plane. And went to find my seat. On the way i notice that im the only asian guy there (no racism just saying) I found my seat and there was an Australian guy sitting beside me he kindly went off his chair to let me sit i said thank you to him. Then i notice that im in the wrong seat. And saw my family sitting down looking at me and laughing because im in the wrong seat and that im beside 2 huge Aussies. Its not a really big dead anyway. The flight was 2 hours i just watch a movie on my Iphone and listen to some music. Also there was no tv on the plane. I thought there was because on the previous plane from Gold Coast to Sydney there was a tv (another story). But this time there wasn't. I was kinda disappointed. But o well. It was a 2 hour flight. And the good thing is that its 2 degrees warmer. I was kinda happy about that. Afterwards i got my things and meet with my family and find the driver and go to our hotel. We had room service at the hotel because the restaurant in the hotel was close. But it was alright the food was nice. Afterwards we just slept for tommorow. Also i finally get a bed for me to sleep but i had to share it with my sister though. But it was alright at least i dont have to sleep in the ground anymore.

Last day in Sydney (Day 3)

       Its my last day in Sydney. Before we go to Gold Coast, Australia. When we woke up we just stayed in the hotel until 11. And had breakfast on the way to the pier. To take a ferry to Manly Beach. We just stayed there and look around for a while. And had Lunch there also. Manly Beach was nice though. Afterwards we just headed back to Sydney city. To meet with my other relatives who are also having a vacation here on Australia. we just had a nice dinner on this restaurant but i forgot its name though. But the view was really nice. All we did that day was pretty much just shopping and eating. But we barely bought anything on the stores because everything is to expensive. After we had dinner we just said goodbye to them and went back to the hotel. To get some sleep for tom because were going to Gold Coast the next day.

going to Manly Beach - Sydney, Australia (Day 3)

        Around 1 in the afternoon. My family and i decided to take a ferry and head to Manly Beach. It took around 20-30 minutes to get there. And the ferry was kinda nice it has a cafe and wi-fi. When we got there well.. not much its just the pier. But when we got out well it was okay. But the first thing we did was head to the beach. There were a lot of people just swimming and surfing also people were having picnics there. But we just sat at a bench and had lunch. We didn't really explore the place. My mom and my sister just went around the one place and went window shopping me my dad and my little sister just eat and play at the beach. Also surprisingly when we went to the sand the sand wasn't cold it was hot. Maybe because of the sun well its not a big deal anyway. After 1-2 hours we left Manly Beach and head back to Sydney city. But manly beach was kinda nice there were a lot of memorial statues about World war 2. Maybe about 2 i think but thats something i wont forget about Manly Beach. Well anyway we left manly beach around 3-4 pm. But Manly Beach was okay though.

Watching a movie on the biggest IMAX Theater on the world!!! - Sydney Australia (Day 2)

   My family and I were going to a resturant for dinner. And on the way i saw a Huge IMAX. I really wanted to watch but my uncle told me that its 20 dollars for a ticket and extra 10 for snacks. But i still wanted to go, Cause i know my parents will pay for it. While they were ordering there meals i told my dad that i'll just watch a movie and eat there while there having dinner and just come back when the movie is done. But my dad simply just said okay without. But i ask him to go with me there. So after he ordered his meal he went with me to the IMAX theater. While we were going there i told my dad that i wanted to watch Pirates of the caribbean since it just came out like a week ago and i really wanted to watch. And by luck when we arrived it was almost gonna start. I knew that since its a Monday night theres barely anybody there watching. So anyway my dad bought me a ticket of the Pirates of the caribbean movie also popcorn and coke and left he also gave me the hotel card in case there not there i'll just go back to the hotel. I just said yes since its near the Theater and i know how to go there. And i have a phone just in case something happens. My dad left me and i went to the movie theater. When i went there It was really huge i was amazed and impress by the size of the movie screen. Well anyway there were alot of people. Not what i inspected but o well i dont really care anyway. SO when i went to my seat and waited for the movie. When it bagan i was kinda disappointed because they only used half the screen but it was still big anyway. And its not some special IMAX movie anyway. So on the middly of the movie i had to go to the restroom but i tried to hold it. Maybe because i drank alot of coke and water. 10 minutes later i cant hold it and immediently ran to the restroom i felt like i had adrenaline becuse i didn't want to miss anything it took me like 3 minutes to use the restroom and i ran back to the theater i only miss a small part so i was kinda okay. After the movie it was around 9 pm so i knew that they weren't there anymore. So i was just thinking of going back to the hotel. But to my surprise my family waited for me and we went back to the hotel. On the way they just ask me about the IMAX theater and the movie. We just talk about it and went back to the hotel to get some sleep. When we arrived at the hotel room I had to sleep on the floor becasue theres no more space and the comforter really hurts. I was lying on the floor with a bad comforter with a blanket and a pillow for like 3 hours trying to sleep then i couldn't take it anymore i just went out and just jump on the bed and sleep. But there was one thing my dad was snoring so loud it was like he was shouting. But anyway I didn't really care and i was able to sleep. On the morning when i woke up i didn't realized it but the "comforter" was just a blanket i was like kinda pissed. But my dad wasn't around though and when he arrived i forgot about it (at the time). Well The end. And also i watch the movie again in 3D on a regular movie screen to see the part i missed. Back in the Philippines The when i watch it the screen was small and it was harder to see everything, But compare to the IMAX everything was bigger and clearer to see. Maybe because the screen was 4 times the size of the regular movie screen. Anyway The End.

Going around the park - Sydney, Australia (Day 2)

        After my and my family went around the castle in the park. We decided to go around and explore the park.  The park was really huge. We saw tons of people sleeping and eating. We didn't really went around since its big we just sit somewhere and rest. Afterwards we just went back to the pier and also look at the Opera House on the way. Thats all we did on the park.

The castle at the park, Sydney, Australia (Day 2)

     Me and my family went to the park beside the Opera House My relatives decided to show use to castle in the park. So we walk to the castle. When we arrive at the castle. I was wondering why is there a castle in a park. Then my uncle told me because thats where the queen of england stays when she comes to Australia. After that we just went around and we headed to the garden. Sadly we were not allowed to go inside the castle. But at least we were allowed to just look around outside the castle grounds. Well anyway after we look around we all had to go to the Restroom. I decided to call it the "Royal Restroom" since its in a castle. Well afterwards we just headed back to the park and stroll around.

The Opera House, Sydney, Australia (Day 2)

Opera House, Sydney
    On the afternoon after we had lunch from the pier. We headed straight to the Opera House. I was really excited to see the Opera House cause its really famous and i always see it at pictures. So i was really looking forward to the Opera House. Once i saw the a glimpse of the Opera House immediently ran toward it. And it looks exactly like the one i saw on pictures only bigger. It was huge and my family decided to go inside to take a look but were not going to watch any plays though. when we went inside i actually doesn't look much maybe because its just the entrance or Lobby. And we were not allow to go anywhere but the Entrance So i was sort of sad. Anyway we left afterwards we just went around the Opera House (outside) and just took pictures. Afterwards we just left and go to the park. Seeing the Opera House was still worth it. And was better than pictures of it.

Vacation at Sydney, Australia (Day 1)

Oprah House (Sydney, Australia) 
        My family arrived at the Sydney airport from Gold Coast, Australia. But when we arrived it was way colder than Gold Coast and i was still wearing shorts while all my family were all in winter clothes and i was the only one in summer cloths (just a sweater, shirt and shorts.) So i was kinda freezing since it was 15 degrees (30 degrees in the Philippine). Because I thought that it was summer in Australia because it was almost june at that time and it was almost summer in the states. So i thought if it was summer in the states its also summer in Australia. But i was wrong it was almost or already winter season in Australia. And i thought of Australia as a hot place cause people say its hot there and stuff. Anyway I was really excited to see Sydney. Especially the Oprah house. But of course we went to the hotel first. Its kinda nice hotel and the beds were really soft and comfy that when i jump on the bed I instantly feel asleep (Literally maybe took me like 1-5 min.). When i woke up only my mom was in the room my 2 sisters and my dad went to buy some grocery. Which i dont know why they had to cause its a hotel. But anyway they arrived 5 mins later. Then i had to dress up because i we were going to go around with my relatives from Australia. We just went around a mall for lunch and just walk around. Btw all the Aussie's looks like there all actors and actresses. And since my height is an average asian person. A lot of them were bigger. As we went around Sydney i notice that all the buildings look really nice. As in architectually nice. There was this tall tower but i heard you got to pay like 10 dollars to enter. So we didnt do it. But anyway we just had lunch. which was really expensive it was 150 dollars for all of us (we were 7). And the restaurant wasn't even that nice. After that we just stroll some more until 5pm. Then we said goodbye to our relatives. But before we left they gave me 150 Australian dollars for my belated birthday which made me happy. They also said that "Theres still more." which made me even more happy. We said goodbye to them and left. But will see them again tomorrow though. It was 5 and its already night. All the stores and malls were closed. Unlike in the states its just sunset at 8 pm and a lot of malls and stores were still open. But anyway it was sunday and my family is a catholic family so we went to church called the St. Marris Cathedral. Which was really nice. It looks like the one you see at the medieval times also the Choir. Well after that we had dinner and went to bed. I was looking forward for the nice and comfy bed but my dad told me to sleep at the ground cause theres no more space. He told me to be a man and stuff. So i had to slept at the ground with a little comforter and blanket. Which was not comfortable my back hurts when i waked up. Btw the blinds at the windows were automatic which was really cool. Well thats the end of day 1 at Australia here at Sydney. (I took that picture above in case you were wondering. With my Iphone 4).

Australia, Gold Coast Mess up (Day 1)

                From Malaysia we arrived at Gold Coast, Queensland. I was excited to leave the plane and see Australia. And feel the Australia heat. But when i went outside of the airport it was really cold it was 17 degrees (30 in the Philippines) I really thought that it was gonna be hot cause i was in summer clothes i was wearing shorts and a shirt. At least i had a sweater. My dad told me that it was winter season here at Australia so its really cold and my family except me were all in winter clothes. Well they did told me to that it might be cold at Australia. But i still wear shorts. And i thought that it was summer at Australia cause its almost June and the summer of america is at June. So i really thought that it was gonna be hot, And also summer at Australia but i was wrong its winter season and its cold. After that Something weird happen. We were suppose to land at Sydney. Something must have happened when my parents book the trips and flights. But at least my dad booked a car for us before we arrived at Gold Coast to go to another airport that will take us to Sydney. So we rushed to the car and my dad told the driver to step on it. When we arrived at the airport we were early. So we had enough time for breakfast. When we arrived at the airport i notice that there were alot of good looking people and a lot of them looks like they are actors and actresses, even the janitor (female). So we had Breakfast at the Airport and the food were really expensive. Back at that time i thought that the reason why the food is expensive is because its in the airport. But i know that its really like that. I mean 2 dollars for a bottle of water i was like WTH?. Well after that we went to the plane which is called virgin red. Kinda reminds me of the soda Virgin red. I thought that the Virgin red soda company owns the planes but I think that im wrong cause. They didn't serve it at the plane. But at the plane there was a small tv screen. I thought that its a dvd player. Its actually a TV with channels. I got impressed by it. It was a 1 hour flight to Sydney. BTW were were the only Asians on that plane. When we arrived at Sydney alot of interesting things happened i'll tell you it in another blog/story. (Its Day 1 of my Australian vacation)

My Vacation!! Pit stop at Malaysia

         I went with my family to Australia. But before we did that we went to Malaysia first for one night. At Kuala Lumpur. We arrived at the airport around 1 am. And there was a driver waiting for us to pick us up from the airport. We arrived at the hotel like 30 minutes later. And the hotel was kinda near the airport and the city. That night or early morning we just slept. When we woke up we decided to see the city and just hang around the mall. We had brunch there and all the food were spicy. But me and my sis just had Carls Jr. But it tastes kinda different from the one in the states. Afterwards we visited the Tower which is one of the biggest towers of the world called KL Tower. Its really huge and hard to take a picture of the whole building. After that we head back to the hotel pack our stuff and go back to the airport for Australia. We had dinner on the plane and there were alot of Aussies on the plane. Thats what happen on Malaysia.
