My sweet valentine~

On 3 December 2011 ...

YES!!! I finally able to finish crafting a letter for my penfriend from Italy. That is after 2 attempts within one month. I kept on changing the content as I wrote according to the events happened on the ship. But it is still an accomplished mission since she has already been waiting for my reply for almost a year. I was determined to reply her using Japanese stamps because I promised her a surprise on Facebook.

I also thought writing to her on the ship and about the ship will be interesting apart from writing away our daily lives.

I really regret that I didn't capture a picture of myself penning the letter on the deck for her to see. That would be interesting and a moment to remember. Oh yes, I sat on the deck to write to her. The scene is beautiful ... but a little glaring so I was wearing my sunshades while writing. HAHA. I'm sure that would bring smile to Valentine.

The stamp cost me 110 Yen. I didn't bring 10 Yen, but the postmaster was kind enough to pay the balance for me.

I was in a hurry to attend the Vietnamese contingent's cultural performance tonight, so I just use my saliva to paste the stamp, despite of the postmaster's insistence of using water. The only thing I really forget to put on the envelope is Fuji Maru's chop!

Spinoff: My very action of dabbing the stamp on my tongue in front of the postmaster sent the administrator announcing the following morning in the assembly to USE WATER NOT SALIVA for pasting stamps.

Oops.

Stomach's call

My host mum took me and buddy shopping for provisions and food. We had lunch at a local's food chain called Jollibee. It is more popular than McDonald!



To be frank, the local cuisine in the Philippines is simply awesome! Luckily I lose weight before the program, so I was able to eat a little more than usual. =)

Tidbits: The truth is renaye had stomach indigestion upon returning to the ship due to overeating during her 3 days 2 nights homestay.

Fashion statement
Monday, January 23, 2012
On 10 November 2011 ...

I made a fashion statement. I was pretty surprised with my own bravado, because I usually have fashion crisis! And I rarely wear accessories despite being a collector.



Yes, I wore a bindi/pottu to match the organiser's tee. I had plenty of them lying around in my room, and was itching to put them on, but never had the opportunity. Bindi is usually matched with Punjabi costumes and saris, but given I was not wearing of those during this date, I carefully consider of wearing it with tees and jeans. After recalling how my Indian colleague wore her black bindi with normal clothes, I decided to put on a blue bindi to contrast the pink.

I was inundated with queries and comments when I walked into the assembly before we visit some institutions in the Philippines . My girlfriends were already enquiring. Luckily, I had a pack and I dutifully distributed to them.

There is no exact reason why I decided to put it on. It's just I wanna be creative that day.

Spinoff: I don't know what happened ... but somehow one of my friends labeled bindi as virgin marker. AHHH! NO!!

The common bindi comes in two colours: Black and red. The black is worn by the unmarried girls, while the red is by the married. The colourful ones like mine in the picture are used as accessory. But somehow I was asked several times if this is to indicate my availability. >.< Of course, I'm using it as accessory la!

Anyways, I'm pretty happy that I followed my instinct. If not, I would be either banging my head or doing something silly for regretting. The last time I did incredibly stupid was drinking sugar cane syrup. It was absolutely yummy but it landed me in bed for a week. HAHA.

Wrong side, darling!
Monday, January 23, 2012
On 11 November 2011 ...

I was looking forward to another homestay since I had a fantastic time in Hakodate.

I know the geography of the Philippines; I have friends from the Philippines but it never cross my mind to visit the country. My sister who visited recently didn't mention much of the country; it just didn't arouse any interest in me. So it makes me wonder what adventures are in store for me...

I was late. I saw my homestay buddy already sitting with the host family. I was surprised to find out my host mum is a lawyer. Sweet. =)

We walked to the car after the homestay matching reception, while host mum was telling us we will be lucky to reach home by 4 pm due to the heavy traffic. As we reached to the metallic car, I open the car door on the left and realised the driver is on the left side as opposed to Malaysia. My host mum and buddy were smiling.

"So do you want to drive?"

"No thank you. I prefer to be a passenger."

It's so embarrassing! I didn't know they follow the US style!

Spinoff: You go, girl! Accidental ingratiation. Surely, they will remember this incident. *shrug*

It's kinda embarrassing.

I was caught dozing off during a cultural performance!

My team member and I usually sit as near as we can to the stage. So we sat in the center next to the seats allocated for the press. As the performance continue to drone, my eyelids become droopy and I simply succumbed to my sleepiness. Without realising ... I was caught on camera by the press sitting next to me!

At first, I didn't realise because I was intermittently resting my head on my team member's shoulder and sleeping up right. Lest my friend from Thailand who was sitting behind me shook me hard while announcing to the world "SLEEPING??!!!"

My team member reported that I was caught sleeping by the press sitting beside me. Ugh... really disliking how my pictures were being taken ... and I hate to bargain. I politely asked the press to show me the pictures and when he did... I forced him to delete. He resisted but I was digging his arm with my long nails until he got subdued. BWAHAHA.

Victory is mine! BWAHAHA ...

Wait ... I heard there was another press who caught me sleeping too. AIYA!

Spinoff: I never ask the other press to ascertain about my sleeping pictures because I was too lazy. It's pure madness to ask him by the way since the press captured thousand of pictures per day, and for me to trail back to this date is a astronomical task. I decided to let this go, and just hope the press members won't exhibit any sleeping photos of me.

Another lesson I learnt is ... sigh ... I have to wear makeup all day long. Simply because I looked like a panda with the dark eye rings and eye bag. And yes, one of the reason I wanted those pictures deleted because I was not with makeup. =P

Suffice to say, I won't allow any pictures to surface where I don't look my best. =P
