Shopping at Novo!

 

 みなさん、こんにちは!

オンライン英会話のパロッツ君です :-D

 

雨期真っ最中にあるフィリピンでは

6月が ”はじまりの時期”

 

備えあれば患いなし?

事前に準備出来る物は、できるだけ準備しておきたいですよね・・・

そこで今回パロッツ君の先生たちが向かった先は・・・ Novo :-|

 

**************************

 

The month of June is always the most exciting yet the most nerve-wracking month for Filipino students. It is the start of schools’ new semester/school year which means the two-month summer vacation is finally over. Students are normally excited to go to school to meet old and new friends but of course, some students are nervous because they are going to face another year of academic activities. :-)

 

One of the things to do in preparation for the coming of new semester is buying school supplies!

So here are Teachers Grace, Shine, Phoebe and Joy to give us a tour to the most popular stores to buy school supplies in Lingayen, Pangasinan. ;-)

 みなさん、こんにちは!

オンライン英会話のパロッツ君です :-)

 

日本で夏が近づく頃、

フィリピンでは夏が終わり、そして雨期へと向かいます☂:::

今回は、優れないお天気が続くフィリピンより、

先生たちのお薦めの一品をご紹介します :-D

 

*********************************

 

There is nothing like having a bowl of hot Creamy Chicken Macaroni Soup to make you feel warm and comfy on a cold day, especially during this time when the temperature outside starts to get chilly. :-(

But, what is a creamy chicken macaroni soup? It is a tasty Filipino-style chicken soup with shredded chicken meat, elbow macaroni pasta, carrots, cabbage and evaporated milk.

Filipinos may have different ways and styles on how to cook it, but this recipe we’re going to teach you is probably the most common way. ;-)

Macaroni Soup1Teachers Jean, Venus and Divine are here to tell you how to cook this famous Filipino cuisine. :-D

エクササイズ Morning Exercise

 

 みなさんこんにちは!

オンライン英会話のパロッツ君です :-)

 

今回は先生たちが時々参加している

お馴染みの(?)早朝エクササイズの模様をお届けします ;-)

 

*******************************

 

Doing exercise every morning helps our body have the energy it needs to have for a long and tiring day. For some, especially for those who are athletic, jogging and running everyday is a must; for others who just want to do lesser-tiring work out, they walk or just lift weighs at home; for some who wants professional help, they go to the gym or fitness center. :-)

 

But for those people who wanted to exercise while dancing, they do Zumba!!Morning Exercise1

Beach Snacks

 

 みなさん、こんにちは!

オンライン英会話のパロッツ君です :-)

 

日本では暖かい日々が続き、夏が目前に迫ってきていますね :-D

ここフィリピンでは、日本よりも一足先に夏がやってきました!

 

今回はビーチでゆっくり過ごす先生たちと

リンガエンビーチで楽しめるBeach Snackをご紹介します ;-)

 

**************************

 

 Summer is just around the corner. The breeze, the humidity, the fruits, it’s really summer in just a short while.

Since Philippines has only two seasons, namely: dry (summer) and wet (rainy), Filipinos are highly anticipating the coming of summer every year. Students have two months break from school in preparation for the next school year, and employees have at least a week off from work because of holy week. It is the time of the year for festivals, reunions, and of course, swimming parties! :-D

 Speaking of which, the beach is also one of the most in demand places every summer. Many people plan to go to the beach to have tanner skin, and to flaunt their summer-ready bodies.

 

Teachers Joy, Gwen, Jade and Weng went to the Lingayen beach to look around.

Let’s see what they’ve seen. ;-) Beach Snacks1

Can you spot the teachers? :-?
