フィリピン紀行 Study Abroad 24

 

 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 :-)

 

新しい年を迎え、いろいろと忙しくなる時期ですが

新年会で忙しくされている方も多いと思います。

 

今回は、留学でパロッツ君を訪れた Kさんと一緒に

パロッツ君の新年の模様をお届けします! ;-)

 

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

 

New Year parties or commonly known as “shinnenkai” is the Japanese tradition of welcoming the arrival of the New Year, usually by the drinking of alcohol. A shinnenkai is their way of getting together to celebrate a new year and to make promises to each other to do their best for this year while wishing each other good luck and fortune. It is generally held among co-workers or friends in January.

SA24-1

This year, Parrots Kun Eikaiwa’s New Year’s party was held in the Lingayen Gulf’s beachfront. :-D

 

 

Saying a prayer before starting an activity is a must for Parrots Kun teachers.

Here’s Teacher Gwen leading the invocation.SA24-2

 

 

One of the most-awaited parts of a party is the eating time. :oops:

Teachers Misty, Mao and Gwen are preparing some food. Let’s take a look!SA24-3

These are milkfish or “bangus” in Filipino language. Bangus is best when grilled. We dare you to try! ;-)

 

 

Another food present in the party was pancit palabok!SA24-4

Pancit Palabok is a noodle dish with shrimp sauce and topped with several ingredients such as cooked shrimp, boiled pork, crushed chicharon, tinapa flakes, fried tofu, scallions, and fried garlic. A very tasty treat that is sure to relieve your hunger. :-o

 

 

And of course, a new year-cake! :-D SA24-5

 

 

A party won’t be complete without games! :lol: SA24-6

Here are teachers playing a very famous game, sack race.

 

 

Sack race is a competitive game in which participants place both of their legs inside a sack and hop forward from a starting point toward a finish line. The first person to cross the finish line is the winner of the race. 8-) SA24-7

Seems like our study abroad student, Mr. K, is enjoying the game, isn’t he? :-)  

 

 

After all the games, it’s time to give the awards and prizes! :-D SA24-8

Congratulations, teachers! ;-)

 

And…

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!SA24-9

 

 

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

 

いかがでしたか?

職場や親しい仲間で行うイベント事って

それぞれの予定などもあって、意外に人が集まらないこともあります。

 

 年間行事は毎年訪れるけど、

その年に行われるのはたった一回しかありません。 :-|

 

 想像だけして立ち止まってしまうのは、本当にもったいないこと!

今年は是非!

重い腰をあげて、去年よりも更に充実した思い出を作れるように

チャンスを逃さないでくださいね ;-)

  1. We didn’t realize we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun. :) Those memories make me smile:) :) :)

  2. Gratitude opens up your heart and your mind allowing you to reflect on the good that has happened to you which in turn makes you happy and drives contentment in your life. We are blessed in so many ways; many things we take for granted but we should stop and be thankful each and every day. Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort. “Happy people plan actions, they don’t plan results.” :) <3 Thank you so much and I love Fortune Tutorial family.. <3

  3. I won a flat screen tv..hahaha
    I enjoyed the party, the games, the food and of course the bonding of the management and our dear teachers ^^
