Seigi no Mikata.
It’s been a long time since I have been a fan of Japanese series and movies and I think it all started with Gokusen and since then I spent most of my free days watching Jdramas at home.
Firstly, I am a big fan of suspense, comedy-romance and horror films. I’m really not much into heavy dramas that’s why it took me almost 2-3 years I think before I took a chance and successfully watched Koizora, I mean it’s not that I hate dramas, it’s just that I’m really kinda emotional I’ll eventually cry while watching such films and the fact that I’m not alone in my room (with my sister) makes it even worse. In the end I was happy that I watched Koizora it was an amazing heart-felt film. Now my task is to try and watch One Liter of Tears (dunno when I’ll be brave enough to watch this film.)
Anyway, speaking of living with a sister that connects me to this topic. Seigi no Mikata was a film I finished watching last June and boy it was so fun! Basically it’s about Yoko (Shida Mirai - the younger sister) who’s in deep agony under her “devilish” older sister Makiko (Yamada Yu). However, despite of her sister’s “devilish” acts eventually her actions bring good fortune to others that is why she is being praised by many despite her real unfriendly and selfish attitude. Unfortunately, only Yoko knows her true nature.
I have a lot of Japanese Actresses/Actors that I really adore but I really don’t get to research them that much to get to know them personally except for a few like Sato Takeru-san and most specially Narimiya Hiroki-san.^^ Then I stumbled upon Yamada Yu-san I was so amazed how she portrayed Makiko it was so so so irritating! Kinda like me and my sister! lols I really know how Yoko feels, I mean my sister is not that mean to me but overall we have the same life especially when I was still a child! Eventually we’ve grown up and have less irritating incidents but still have irritating incidents! whew! Talk about confusion?!
Look at this face above! This is the face of perfection actress Yamada Yu-san has that really makes me think about my sister! So scary and I know by this time something is up with my sister! lol (~_~)
And this picture, is the ultimate picture that says to bow down to a sister’s dictation. I am a brave girl but when it comes to my autocratic sister this is what happens eventually. Oh Yoko that is exactly what I look like expression and all! lols (T_T) (^_^)
Overall, this drama is really good especially to those who can relate or have the same situation as Yoko does I really recommend this you will really have fun! I also decided to write this on my blog because just now I just finished watching Mei-chan no Shitsuji and again Yamada Yu-san is also one of the characters. Again she did well in that series her character again is really irritating.^^ Think I’ll search her dramas and try to watch it sometime next month. (^_^)
By the way maybe my sister get to read this blog (really felt like Yoko while doing this blog..lols), in all fairness to my sister she’s really not that hard on me like what Makiko does to Yoko but then again there’s that 50-70% reality in Seigi no Mikata’s story that is applicable in our daily lives.

It’s good to be back! After 3 years and also my 3rd time. Yes to 2013!

My friends and I had a little break for this week. A one day trip just to satisfy our longings. (You see, when we were students we love to take a trip especially at the beach, the waterfalls or go island hoping or travel to other cities just to relax a bit but with a tight budget. Up until now that we are blessed to have a little bit of money, compared before, we tend to have that “a must affordable adventure”).
Anyway yesterday, after about 2-3 years, we went back to Hagimit Falls, Samal Island, Davao del Sur. It was my third time to be back and I must say there have been a lot of changes regarding their beautification.
I can’t upload all the photos so I’ll just type all the instructions needed on how to get there the “locals’ way” (without spending that much).
Hagimit Falls is located at Peñaplata, Samal Island which is about 45mins-1hour travel time from Davao City.
NO NEED TO WORRY, this travel estimation covers:
a.) Depending where you are in Davao City or how far are you from the Sasa Wharf(Km.11). There are 2 ways to get to the wharf, you either ride a bus at the Magsaysay Park and your sure to have a good seat(if it’s not peak hours or holiday) or ride a jeep going to Sasa Wharf (Km.11) and wait for the bus but the possibility of standing inside the bus is 80-90%.
b.) When in the barge, you can either stay inside the bus or walk around the barge and find a spot to take a picture of the sea, the island, etc. But mind you the travel span is only about 5-7mins. So be sure to hurry with those photos.
c.) Upon reaching Samal Island, your good to go. Until the bus reaches Peñaplata Central Warehouse/Bus Terminal.
d.) From there you will ride a “habal-habal"(motorcycle transportation usually good for 2 persons) or a "Tricycle"(it’s actually a 4-wheeled vehicle good for 6 persons, describing this makes me realize why do we even call it TRIcylce..??lol). Just tell the driver your heading to Hagimit and they’ll take you there. Voila! (^_^)
1.) Jeepney going to Magsaysay Park or Sasa Wharf (Km.11) depends where your staying in Davao City. Minimum fare would be -> Php8
2.a.) Bus fare: Magsaysay Park up to Peñaplata Central Warehouse/ Bus Terminal ->Php40
2.b.) Bus fare: Sasa Wharf (Km.11) up to Peñaplata Central Warehouse/Bus Terminal ->Php30
3.) Habal-habal fare going to Hagimit: Php20-25. Unfortunately, I really don’t know how much a Tricycle cost because we usually ride a habal-habal, sorry!)
4.) Entrance fee in Hagimit Falls ->Php40
5.) Table and chair with umbrella (the cheapest), as shown in the photos ->Php150 (So Php150 divided by how many you are in a group. Again, we haven’t tried renting a cottage or a room so we really don’t know how much it costs (‘-_-)y
Overall, our expenses was Php300-380 per person and there were 4 of us. We bought ready to eat viands and rice then soft drinks and water. It’s cheaper when you bring homemade cooking each and share it but we were lazy that time. We are so happy our expenses was much less than our expected Php500 budget. (^_^)
-The good thing about Hagimit is that they don’t have any corkage for food and drinks!^^
-Although, Hagimit Falls is a lot smaller compared to other waterfalls like Tinuy-an Waterfalls in Surigao, still an hour travel away from the city to detoxify yourselves is really a good deal!
Enjoy everyone! (^_^)v
