Nursery school trip

Oct 23, 2010

The yearly autumn trip is back again.
This year, the nursery had organized a trip to Onokoro amusement park in Awaji island. Onokoro is famous for their miniatures of famous buildings. They also provide quite a nice place for picnic. Otherwise, we think the park is just like any amusement parks we see in Japan, offering rides as their main business.

We were required to gather at the front gate of the nursery by 8am.


Then there was a speech by the headmistress, giving a brief talk and making the kids promised to follow the three basic rules:
1. Always be with your parents. Don't wonder around alone.
2. If you need to go to toilet, never lock the door as it is difficult for kids to unlock later ( we don't want the kids to be locked in the toilet do we?)
3. Make sure to come back by 12.40om. (Kids should remind parents as well...)


After making the kids promise (by touching their heads....Hmmm, that was new I thought), we all walked in twos to the nearest bus stop where the hired bus were scheduled to wait for us there.


Up to the bus we climbed

Sya sat with teacher during that one hour trip

The parents sat at the back seats, watching the kids occupied their time with singing and quiz answering sessions

We arrived at Onokoro at about 9.30am

Here we come, Onokoro!

Ok you two...we will have to go separate ways. See u later Monica!

Mommy, let me have a look at the map. I shall decide where we would go first!

Sya decided to take a train ride with his friends...of course without his mommy and daddy

Joining his close friends...discussing where to go next.

The train ride would take them to a forest where statues of Jack and the beanstalk, Thumbelina and other famous fairy tales were featured

See you guys later!

The five minute trip seemed so long....sigh!

He spotted the big ferris wheel...obviously, we couldn't escape the ride.

Sya wanted to ride alone! Beraninya...But of course we refused

The views from the top of the ferris wheel...it would have been great if the weather was sunny

Excited with his first ride

A miniature of The Arc de Triomphe

It's so hard to get them to pose properly...hahaha

Lunch time, since we had made lunch box, let's have picnic!

Tamagoyaki ( Japanese omelette)

Karaage (Japanese fried chicken)

Fresh veges

sausages...Sya's favorite

Shrimp salad with erkkk...oxidated avocado (forgot to put some lemon juice...haha)

Persimmon and Fuji apple for desert

We continued the adventure after our lunch

Miniature of Neuschwanstein Castle

Miniature of Acropolis

Miniature of leaning tower of Pisa

Sya wanted to ride this antique car

The ride took us to see all the other miniatures

Then we saw this. Wah...this seemed fun!

After the first ride with ayah, Sya wanted to ride alone!

Sya loved it!

A ride with ayah

Go cart race with ayah

Having fun boyS?

Baikin-man (a Japanese animation character) ride

Merry-go-round, which we discovered that Sya had motion sickness after that!

We wrapped up our trip, as usual, with ice-cream

And we finally were back at the entrance before 12:40pm

Everyone seemed to enjoy the trip. What most important was that no unwanted things happened to anyone and all of us went back with a big smile.

Hi My Putri!Thanks for coming.
Yeah...it was a wonderful trip. Everyone enjoyed it immensely. My son eats all the veges. Yeah, nasib baik dia tak memilih sangat. He can even eat celery and paprika. So far so good. :)

Hi Nana, Wow! I really enjoyed looking thru all the pics here. Good shots too. And surprised see palm trees there?
Japan is so orderly and so clean everywhere.

Hi Lee.
Thanks for your lovely complement.
Yeah...Japan is clean. No traces of rubbish here. And if you notice, there are not many rubbish bins here as well. We are encouraged to bring back our rubbish. Do come visit Japan. It is a wonderful place. Just that things can be a little expensive.
Yeah...the two boys had real good fun. And I had fun taking their pictures too! hihi...

Hi TK!
Kat sini, school trips sebelum sekolah rendah parents kena ikut utk jaga anak masing-masing. Less burden on the teachers and yet kids get to enjoy with both their friends and family members. Malaysia boleh apply tak sistem ni? Or the parents won't be bothered to join? Tak tahu keadaan Malaysia camana sekarang. But I find this system quite good.
About camera, I am ardent fan of canon since undergrad lagi. Now I am using Canon Ixy 10s (only available in Japan) and Canon DSLR KissX4 or Canon 550D (other name). Betul, Jepun memang suka ambik gambar. So the cameras here, canggih2 belaka. The models change after 3-4 months. Yang my canon Ixy 10s tu baru beli last year...and since then, 2 new models baru dah keluar. So don't chase the latest cameras in Japan...the title 'latest' will last only for 3-4 months jer...:)
Bentou Jepun...memang colorful. They really make the effort to make nice bentos so that the kids would eat them. Bagi Japanese, their food, all the senses need to be triggered which includes the visual sense. Yang I punya tu memang cincai if compared to the Japanese ones.
Yang canggih tu, siap buat makanan berbagai2 bentuk for example bentuk binatang yg comel2.
Alhamdulillah Sya suka makan vege. We make the effort so that dia tak memilih. Oh tapi ada satu yg kita takleh ajar lagi...dia takleh makan makanan pedas! Kat Malaysia nanti camana ntah...hehehe.
