Christmas Season

 

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 :-)

 

街はクリスマス一色! :-D

みなさんのお家でもクリスマスの飾り付けをしていますか?

 

パロッツ君のオフィスでは

たくさんのツリーに飾り付けがされましたよ ;-)

 

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

 

The holidays are fast approaching! Or should we say the holidays are UPON US? Yes, that’s more like it! :-D

 So begins the endless Christmas commercials invading our TV and radio waves. Beginning this week with the cool breezy air tumbling into Christmas tree chopping down and decorating, then a slew of holiday parties, Yehey! 

Christmas Season1

 

This time every year we have the feeling of uncontrollable tumbling through the days. The eminent arrival of the holidays creates a very frantic feeling in the salon. Everyone has family visiting or they’re traveling to visit family members elsewhere, preparing their homes for house guests or deciding what to pack for their journey. :-)

The Philippine Islands… 

SA26-1

 

What do you know about this country? Is it a country or an Island? Many asked if how many islands are there in the Philippines. Well, there are no less than 7,107 islands in the Philippines, and they include the main island of Luzon and this is where we are heading.

 

It’s a beautiful fine day in Parrots-kun and the feet of the happy campers should wonder somewhere. But I have a question for you reading this blog, “what’s in it for you why you need to go to Alaminos City, Pangasinan?’’

Check it yourself like these explorers from Parrots-kun did. ;-)

エクササイズ Halloween Zumba 2017

 

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

 

11月になり、街はすっかりクリスマスモードへと突入!

でも少し前まではHalloweenでしたね :-)

みなさんは今年のイベントシーズン、如何お過ごしでしょうか?

 

パロッツ君の先生たちは、それぞれのイベントを思いっきり楽しんでいますよ ;-)

 

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

 

Halloween, a contraction of All Hallows’ Eve, is a celebration observed on October 31st, the day before the feast of All Hallows’. The celebrations and observances of this day occur primarily in regions of the Western world, although some traditions vary significantly between geographical areas.

Halloween here in the Philippines is not like the Halloween in the Western countries. Although it’s a big holiday, we celebrate it in a different manner. Halloween in the Philippines lasts from the eve of October 31st (or even before this day) to November 2nd.

 

Our Beloved Congressman Bataoil in the Lingayen town promotes a healthy living lifestyle to all the people and this one is just a fun family activity that we do can join every year. At the end of every October 31st for the past 3 years. :-)

As a part of the contest, contestants needed to register to be qualified including teacher Phoebe on the left, Joy, May, Lanie and Hanna.

 

Teacher Joy as a mummy, teacher Lanie and teacher Hanna as pretty witches, teacher Phoebe as a white lady from the movie Annabelle and teacher May as a nun.  8-O

留学プログラムにお友達同士で参加してくれた

K.Kさんと J.Kさん。

今回は、お二人の滞在の様子を少しだけご紹介します ;-)

 

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

 

Once upon a time on a beautiful morning in Parrots-kun, there were students and teachers who tend to just embrace the beauty of reading and studying and continue to be productive in the learning process.

 They seem too serious with books engaging themselves into something that will make them fruitful.

And after a few hours of spending time in studying,

a sudden breakaway happened…

Happy World Teachers’ Day!

 

 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。

 

10月5日は World Teachers’ Day ;-)

 

この日パロッツ君の先生たちは

其々の恩師や学校生活を思い出しながら、ちょっと特別な日を過ごしたようです :-)

 

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

 

Do you still remember your first teacher? The one who taught you how to count, add and subtract? How about your first English teacher who taught you your ABC’s, the verb and the noun?

Let’s admit it. Most of us have taken for granted the people who taught us the skills we have now; our teachers.

And today, we celebrate teacher’s day!
Remember our favourites and even the ones we always get in trouble with. Take a look on how we celebrated World Teachers’ Day in the Parrots Kun way.

By the Beach

 

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 ;-)

 

今回パロッツ君の先生たちが訪れたのは・・・

”By the Beach”  :-D

 

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

 

Beach1With more than 7,107 islands to choose from, one can never run out of beach plans here in the Philippines. There are many popular and undiscovered beaches you can visit and adding a new one to the list is San Fabian, Pangasinan. San Fabian was founded on March 23, 1717. The town was named in honor of a crusading Pope, St. Fabian, who ruled the Roman Catholic Church for almost 13 years during the reign of the Roman Emperor Dictus.

 

The popularity of San Fabian is mainly brought by its beautiful beach resorts, commercial crops, aquaculture and salt making refinery. The place is not far from its neighboring towns and is easily accessible too. But aside from beaches and its growing industry, San Fabian has a lot more to offer…

 

We all know that cafés are all around the corner and our dear teachers Jade, Lalaine, Misty, Grace, Anabelle and Gwen visited this newest café located in San Fabian named “By the Beach”. :-D Beach2

Walking in the Rain ☂

 

 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、今年は雨が多い夏となったようですが

みなさんは「雨」というと

どんなイメージをお持ちでしょうか?

 

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

 

Rain is often associated with sad moments or sad feelings. In movies, we often see actors walk in the rain during the depressing moments of the plot, when somebody dies, cries, or loses in life. This will usually be accompanied by sad and melancholic music. :cry:
In real life it would be really weird if it started raining every time something sad and depressing happened, but thanks to TV and the movies we now generally associate rain with upset, sadness and depression. :-x

 

Rain may also bring a lot of troubles to people especially if they are one of those who didn’t want to get themselves wet before going to work or school. Others may not find the sound of the rain appealing to the ears.

While others don’t even want the idea of rain, here we are suggesting you to take a walk while raining. We know it might sound crazy, but we have gathered some reasons to convince you to try walking in the rain. ;-) Walking in the Rain1

El Kapitolyo Food Park

 

 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 :-)

 

今日はパロッツ君の先生から

リンガエンの最新スポットをご紹介します ;-)

 

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

 

It seems that the food park trend is here to stay that we needed to make a blog out of it. To stay on top of the food game, let us introduce you the newest type of food destination in the Philippines, the food parks. :-)

2016 has been basically the year for food parks. More and more of this type of business had cropped all over the country throughout last year. The reason why food parks have been so in-demand especially for youngsters or millennial is that they offer a promising variety of quick eats conveniently housed in one place, most with an Instagram-worthy setting to boot.El Kapitolyo FP1

Teachers Hanna, Enjell, Mao, Jean, Misty, Jade and Grace took a short break from giving lessons to try the newest food park in our beloved town, Lingayen, the El Kapitolyo Food Park (The Capitol Food Park). :-D

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 :-)

 

夏といえば “海” !!

海といえば!

パロッツ君では ハンドレッド・アイランド をお勧めしています ;-)

 

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

 

Philippines’ summer is way far from over and it seems as if it has just started because of the extreme heat Filipinos are experiencing during the past few weeks. In these times when the sun is not so nice and all, what you need is a refreshing moment by the beach sipping a nicely blended lemonade with your swimwear on and a pair of sunglasses. 8-)

We bet everyone is familiar with this paradise we are about to show off right in front of your screens. Yes, we’re talking about the most popular place in our beloved province Pangasinan, the Hundred Islands National Park! ;-)

Recently, teachers had a trip to the most talked-about place not just in our province but in the whole north, the Alaminos City’s one hundred islands.

Welcome to the Hundred Islands National Park, everyone! :-D
