Did you know that there is a “Star City” in Smallville? 😆 Yup, there is, hahaha. I heard it while watching Smallville before, since then the term has double meaning for me. The place (in Smallville) and the amusement park (in Pasay City, Philippines).
Oh and Oliver Queen really is from Star City. How I love the Green Arrow.
Okay enough with my Smallville obsession.. last night almost everyone in our house went to Star City. Well I could have said my ‘family’ but Dad was left behind, he didn’t want to go cause he knew that there would be a LOT of people.. well he was pretty much right about that. :))
There were a LOT of people, indeed. We only got to go on 2 rides, Wild River and some kind of rollercoaster-ish ride called Space Flyers (I think I got it right this time).. hell I’m never riding a ride that goes upside down again. I’ve never been on a rollercoaster in my life, EVER. I’ve had my chances to conquer the “fear” of riding upside down rides before.. but I only took the chance last night and I say that once is enough. 😛
I wanted to ride the other rides like Flying Carpet, Bumper Cars and Galactica, its like a big wheel and then you stand on the sides of the wheel/circle and then it’ll spin, the angle gets higher or something but not faster (me thinks). We were already in line but while observing the batch before us go it made me dizzy so we moved on Wild River.. Maybe some other time, when it’s not dark, LOL. Flying Carpet’s my fave actually, oh and one other attraction that’s similar to that is Surf Dance, it goes sideways instead of the way in Flying Carpet (crap, I can’t describe it very well, haha). And also some of the really kiddy rides, haha.
As much as we wanted to go all to the rides, problem is the lines were effin long!! Our ride all you can tag wasn’t spent very well since we only got to use it in 2 rides. :doh: Someday again, Star City, some day!
I won’t go into the details about my experience at Space Flyers but I have one thing to say: Once is enough. Wild River was fun, but I feel that I wasn’t ready for it.. the excitement faded away as I got closer to the logs (where we’ll ride) but once I sat down I started yelling my lungs out (ROFLMAOBBQ). I felt the blood and gravity rushing when we went down, fun for some, something new for me. I feel that we were the only kids who were really, really screaming out for our life there. My cousin told me after we got off that some guys were laughing at us.. meh. The hell with them, as if I care.. I don’t know them and I surely hope they don’t remember me.
When was the last time I went to Star City anyway?
Second year highschool. Star City was the last destination according to the itinerary, we also watched a play or a ballet recital (I’m not really sure) something about a Swan.. haha. Lisa Macuja was the star of the show that night. As for things Star City related during that day.. I rode the Wild River (and had fun) and the Flying Carpet.. can’t remember much except the place looked like it was falling apart. Saw rusty handlebars and such when we got in so it really surprised me when we got to the place last night cause the front looks brand new. 😀
Oh, this is my first post the year! How lovely that it is related to Smallville in a way as well. =)) I’ve a wish.. I hope Smallville and Heroes would resume back to regular programming ASAP. From what I remember one of them will go back in January and the other in February *gasp* I don’t want!! I want my dose of Lois and Clark and Heroes now! 😛
I go back to school on Wednesday btw, wish me luck! I don’t like my schedule very much, but it’s the best I can get, LOL. I will miss having 2 days having no classes for the most part. I only hate it cause of PE and Algebra and out-of-school NSTP. 😡 Luckily my PE uniform still fits me after 10 months of no PE. 😉 Worst part of all? The PE I’ll be taking is DANCE. Hopefully I pass all these minor subjects cause I never want to repeat a subject again. I looked at my flowchart (chart of subjects I’m supposed to take throughout my course) and realized that summer this 2009 is the last I’m going to ‘enjoy’, next summer will be our OJT. Time flies fast.. I’m not sure if I can still ride with all of these. I’m worried when to take my Business Math because I want to enjoy my summer and at the same time I want to finish all my general subjects. There’s another problem with my subject scheduling but I’ll talk about it some other time.
Anyway photos from last night for you to enjoy! Or not.. 😆
Hahaha, di na nagpa-awat eh.
Because there are more important things in this world than what I want… and what I love.
