How to Pass Time at an Airport

*waiting for my flight back home!*

*waiting for my flight back home!*

Ohayou minna-san!

This is MK who was just not so nice to her mom when she asked her to go do something for her. I feel bad about it now…Text emote 2 One must always be respectful to his or her parents.

*ashamed*

OK, enough sulking.

MK is currently at the Orlando International Airport where she and her mom are taking a flight home. We actually have to take a total of 3 flights to reach to our destination. That’s pretty exhausting even just to think of, so MK is passing the time here blogging to minna-san! … And doing other things like:

  • Listening to music: “FYI – Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence” by Utada Hikaru
  • Browsing through Youtube videos (but I’m too impatient to wait for them to load – since the internet access here is pretty slow)
  • IM-ing my friends on MSN Messenger
  • Other random stuff

Yup, so MK always finds random things to at airports and gets along with the long hours of waiting quite well. But I’ve noticed that many other people aren’t as fortunate.

Right now, my mom and many other people here in this terminal waiting area are spending their time either sleeping or staring into space looking bored sick. I mean, most of these people seem to have something to do, but it looks like many of them don’t.

So in case you are one of those people who never has a clue what to do to pass the time at an airport, MK is going to give minna-san a list of 5 things to do to pass time at an airport:

1. Browse through available stores.

The airport you’re in most likely contains all kinds of apparel, electronics, and book stores that you can browse around in and – if you’re not cheap like MK – maybe even buy some stuff. Be warned: Airport stores are usually more expensive than other regular stores.

2. Read

MK's reading material

MK's reading material: "A guide to Windows Vista"

Reading is one of the most classic and effective ways to pass time – or at least in my opinion. I always carry at least one book or magazine with me when traveling. Books and magazines can be used at anytime. Unlike some electronics and laptops which can’t be used during certain parts of flights and have limited battery life.

3. Listen to music

Music always lightens the mood and makes any unpleasant experience more tolerable. Always travel with your MP3 player, iPod or PSP if you have one and make sure to keep it loaded with all your favorite tunes. It can be a life saver!

4. Draw Manga!

I know this doesn’t apply to everyone. But you can take it as just “Draw”. I love drawing even though I’m not that good and with my sketchpad and pencil in hand, I definitely enjoy looking like I have some kind of skill in the Art department. Maybe you’re good at drawing, in that case it should be even more fun for you. Be sure to bring along your sketchpad and pencil whenever you travel.

5. Count how many people are using iPhones right now!

MK, as some of you may know, is very much into tech and also loves to observe people and her surroundings. I’ve noticed while being in the US that there are tons of iPhones EVERYWHERE! I love the iPhone and I especially love the latest iPhone 3G, so I definitely enjoy seeing so many people taping on their iPhones. I’ve kinda made a game of looking for people with iPhones. Why not try making your own game?

OK, MK must rush away now! My plane is boarding!

Ja~ne!

MK’s Quest for The Sims 3: Complete!

MK’s here to tell you the good news!

I finally got The Sims 3!!!

Unfortunately, since MK hasn’t blogged in so long, this news is already quite old. I actually bought The Sims 3 more than a week ago.

The plus-side is, MK can now show minna-san her family!Text emote 6

And in order to show minna-san MK’s Family’s Story in a more fun and interesting way, I’ve spent the last… about 10 days… working on this video about MK’s Family!

If you’re wondering why it took so long to make a 6-minute video, it’s because MK made all of the media in this whole video herself.

The thing is MK started by just making the background song in GarageBand (only available on Macs) and she was planning to just show minna-san her song in a seperate post. But then I came up with the idea of making a video about my family and decided to use my own little song (if it can even be called a song – it’s more like … a mix [?]) in my video.

I hope minna-san enjoys watching MK’s video which she posted on Youtube yesterday.

What did minna-san think, ne? Should I make more videos?

Leave a comment and let me know!

From the Apple Store

Konbanwa minna-san!

You’ll notice that MK is using no pictures in this post. That’s because right now I’m in the Apple Store at our favorite mall!

Well, that’s all I really wanted to say. Plus, I don’t want anyone who’s standing behind me here to be reading what I’m doing [.___.]{!).

Ja~ne!

BEAUTIFUL MUSIC!!!

*happy*

Konbanwa minna-san!

MK‘s going to quickly show minna-san a video which she finds extremely nice. This group is called Libera. I don’t know much about them but my dad has a DVD of them and it’s very good. This song is my favorite. Every time I listen to it, it almost brings me to tears. I love how their voices are so pure and innocent! OK, now let’s see what minna-san thinks
