October 14 /A day of pure awesomeness


Yesterday, we had our field trip; although we only went to three places, we still enjoyed the trip.

First destination: A play held in Pasig. I forgot the name of the exact place, I'll just edit this post once I find out.

The stage play is about Ninoy Aquino, as you can see from the photo below. But its main point is not merely about Ninoy's life —his story on how became a hero, no it isn't. The play showed a parallelism of Ninoy's life and of eleven other characters as modern-day heroes. It's a two-hour epic musical play.
After watching,I was stunned by the actors and actresses; I was stunned with the way they danced, sang, and especially with the way they acted; I admire how they expressed themselves with the way they act. And the choreography was very simple and basic yet so synchronized! I have to admit, I had a major realization: I want to be a theater actress someday. I want to take up Performing Arts in college, well only as my second college degree. The play inspired me to aspire to be an actress. Okay, I'm being irrelevant now.

Second destination: Some zoo in Pasig. Again, I forgot the name.


I think the zoo's entrance fee only cost 1php. Hahaha! Because the place looks old! Like, it was built centuries ago. The Crocodiles looked like statues; they weren't moving! breathing, even; and their mouths were open, also not moving. And since it's a zoo, the smell.. oh my gosh. I was like, "So this place is worth 1000php plus." 


Final destination: Myth of the Human Body in Taguig, Makati


At first, I thought this place was full of dead human flesh preserved in some sort of liquid substance stored in some sort of aquarium, but I was 100% wrong. The museum or exhibit contained dead human bodies, mostly Chinese bodies, that all looked like plastic.
A German scientist invented this process of preserving human bodies called Plastination and the technology is very new. The museum opened earlier this year in the Philippines but it will not stay long; the preserved bodies will soon be imported to other countries. Oh, it's not merely full of bodies, all the internal and external parts are displayed separately. I know, so cool! I thought I'm going puke hearing the nasty reviews regarding it, but I didn't. The human bodies didn't really look disgusting. 


I myself learned a lot from the museum, thanks to our tour guide, Kuya Jason!


The tour ended around 5:30pm; we got home by 6:30pm.


In the bus going home: Last minute party! Partying just happens naturally within us. Even though we didn't have portable speakers, we didn't care at all. We were about 10 km away from school when we suddenly started to party. Hahaha!

Fix You by Coldplay


This song is a major LSS to me. The lyrics and the melody just gets me.


When you try your best but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse


And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?


Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
‘Cause I will try to fix you


And high up above but down below
When you’re too in love to let go
But if you never try, you’ll never know
Just watch your words 


Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
‘Cause I will try to fix you


Tears stream down on your face
When you lose something that you cannot replace
Tears stream down on your face
And I…


Tears stream down on your face
I promise you that I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down on your face
And I…


Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
‘Cause I will try to fix you
