Enchanted Kingdom

The rides! The fun! The safety! All found at Enchanted Kingdom!

Me and my relatives including our balikbayan relatives went to EK. It was really fun. We rode a lot of rides, starting with Up Up and Away. You ride on a parachute, which goes around and around. There is also the Roller Skater, which is a roller coaster. The first time I rode it, I was caught on picture screaming, the second time, I clenched my teeth.

Next stop, Disc-O-Magic! You ride on the disk, which goes up and down like a U, while the disk spins around and around. I understood the reason why all my cousins were screaming when I rode it.  I can’t remember what we rode after that, but we rode a lot of rides.

We rode Space Shuttle, the ride which my mom vowed not to ride again. It pulls you up, then away you go, round the loops and the part which looked like a broken Slinky, then, you go backward this time. I swear, Kate my cousin was crying after we rode it.

We rode Flying Fiesta, where you sit on a chair, and it goes up and spins around and around, you’ll fear it’ll sling you off. My mom, according to my sister, was shaking.

There is also a ride I liked, which is called the RioGrande Rapids. You ride on a raft, which experiences bumps and waves of water, and the luckiest one gets wet in the waterfall. We all rode it three times, and I was the wettest.

We rode Anchors Away. It’s a boat which rocks back and forth so much, one second you’re weightless. My sister was raising her hands one second, the next, she ended up getting scared. Dad needs to ride this so he can see why I was screaming like a girl. It looked like it was an okay ride. But, it took me away from being okay.

I’ve ridden also the EKstreme tower. You ride on a ring that slowly goes up, up, up until you hear a click and you go down, down, down. I was kind of scared riding it, because you never know when you’re gonna fall.

There is also this ride called Dodgem, which basically means bumper cars. If driving licenses were based on how well you drove a bumper car, I would never ever get mine. I kept crashing on the walls.

I’ve ridden Jungle Log Jam, where you ride on a log that’s going on a path, then you go up slowly and down so quickly. I was caught on picture with my mouth open.

Finally, we watched the Fireworks Show. The fireworks were awesome, really. Right now I have cough which sounds like fireworks during New Year. Sort of like Katy Perry in her MTV Fireworks, except that the color of my fireworks are green and Katy Perry did not have cough.

Ekstreme tower. Going, going, going, gone!

Glenda (It’s not about a girl)

There’s a storm raging here in the Philippines called locally as Typhoon Glenda. It is quite strong, the winds are blowing hard, and the rain is making it worse. This is really the first time I have experienced a storm like this, ever. Typhoon Ondoy was just rain with severe floods, Typhoon Yolanda did not devastate Luzon that much, and we still had electricity, but this typhoon?!? It’s freaking strong! Now it’s very windy, rainy, and we have no electricity.

Still, I have to be grateful that I’m still  safe and dry unlike others. Also, I am thankful the iPad was charged, otherwise I wouldn’t be typing this up. Also, I’m thankful the two days of suspension came so that we would have a rest from the energy-sapping school days. Even though I am mad at the storm, I am still grateful for a lot of things.

I love the days when you could simply focus on writing. Well, I’m given a day like that, with a storm raging outside. Sad the internet is down, and I can’t post this right away, and the iPad battery is limited. Still, I have to repeat, I am thankful for many things even in a time like this.

My philosophy in life is “Live in the present.” Well, I think I will add another one, “There is an upside in every downside”. Right now, I am typing this up, beside my mom, cutting Gabee’s nails with the help of a too-powerful flashlight.  I’m sure mom will agree to what I’ve typed here.

Perfect. This is the highest score you can get on moves, unless it is a Gold Move, which it would be “YEAH!”.

What gives me the authority to talk about this game? I wouldn’t be talking about this game if we don’t have it. Yes, dear reader, we have Just Dance 2014 on PS3. My dad has noticed me dancing with the iPad, and so bought the game with two motion controllers. It’s also available on Xbox One, Xbox 360 Kinect, PS4, Wii, WiiU and PS3. You can try this game to see for yourself in the nearest Quantum or Timezone branch.
