My experiences on my way to JapanAshley Quirolgico
It was 5am in the morning when my mom woke me up to leave for the airport. My normal instinct was to say "nngggh mom 5 more minutess" but since my brain actually worked for once, I knew we were going to Japan. So I quickly ran (well no, I ran as in quickly got up from my bed) to the bathroom to pee and splashed some water in my face then I quickly took a shower. By the time I finished showering and wearing my two sweaters, one jacket and thermal leggings it was 5:30am and our flight was 7:00am, which meant I really showered fast. But my family was almost done so I guess I was the last one. After my entire family finished showering and dressing up, my dad got an Uber(?) car thingy and we waited for 5 minutes for it to arrive.
When the Uber finally arrived, we then loaded up all of our luggages with the help of the driver then we went inside the car. I sat in the middle while my mom sat on the left side, my twin on the right and my dad in the front. Then the car started moving going to the airport.
When we arrived to the airport, the place was packed with people even though it was early in the morning. Since our flight was at 7am, we just decided to fill up some forms and give our passports. After that it was like 6:05am so we just stayed in the Mabuhay lounge where there was a lot of computers, outlets, couches, free Wi-Fi and FOOD!. I really was shocked that their were only a few people inside and that there was an entire isle full of food. After all of us ate and stuffed our faces with food. We went to the place where you have to wait for your flight. Eventually, we were called so we got up and boarded our plane.
The plane was fairly packed with people. I quickly went to the seat I was assigned to and pulled out my phone to listen to some anime songs. As the plane took off I got more excited. One time, my mom told me that the plane had an app so that you could watch movies for free when your on the plane. So my twin and I, picked a movie and the movie we picked was Miss Peregrine's Hpme For Peculiar Children. Apparently, our flight didn't arrive/stop at Japan immediately, so we had to stop by Taiwan and wait for the Japan flight to resume.
When we were able to board the plane going to Japan, It was one hour flight instead of a two hour one. When we arrived to Japan, It was like the happiest day of my life! how happy? you ask? For example: you got all of the things you have ever wanted!. Unfortunately, we had to line up for something passport related (I didn't really care because like I was in Japan! and it was very boring) and like it took so long like it felt like 2 hours but really now it was 1 hour. After one decade of standing in place and contemplating about life and looking at random things, we finally left the darn place and the first thing I saw was a giant Pikachu, no joke as in a extremely tall and big inflated chubby Pikachu, when I saw that thing I felt Japan just slapped me and said "This is Japan WELCOME!".
Apparently, we arrived in the perfect time because the entire airport was like celebrating Pokemon's 20th anniversary. Since I am a prime example of a Pokemon fan (because Pokemon was basically my childhood) I went crazy and was like "Uh hey mom, what ever happened to the Yen I brought?" but sadly she said don't buy it here because were just gonna go to a Pokemon Center anyway. After me and my twin fangirled and fanboyed to death, our dad had to lie up to get maps and tickets (I'm not really sure) then when he did we rode this huge and long train with really wide windows. My mom then said "this train I think is just for the airport" so I was like cool! and the trip to Osaka was really long so I fell asleep and my mom took a picture of me (*sobs*)
When I woke up from my well deserved nap, we were on our way already to Osaka. So when the train stopped I quickly got up from my seat and I ran straight out which was the worst idea I have ever made in my entire life 'cause I almost died of Hypothermia. I really regretted doing that (You don't say past Me?) but luckily I had a jacket with me!. So to get to the condo room my mom rented, we had to walk which would normally kill me but I didn't mind it since I got to look around more. When we reached the condo thing, my mom had to get a key in a locker room so that we could open up the entrance (that security though) door. When I saw our room I was just in love with it and just the thought of the room made me realize that my trip to Japan was going to be Awesome.
