Perya

How are you guys? I'm sorry to be out of the blogosphere for a while. I have been so lazy the past few days, IDK why, but anyway, let me postpone my after party post and the things I want for Christmas task and blog about my super fun weekend. A town fiesta would never be complete without a “Perya” or carnival. Dumaguete City- a booming city is not exempted. As far as I can remember way back in college, the Lechan Grand Carnival is always present on this same spot to grace the city’s annual fiesta celebration. Unlike those huge, safe, grand, and high-end ride that you might be thinking, or you might have already experienced, Perya is way too small than that, and games are quite different. Let me show you what I mean.


We need to line up for the entrance fee of P10..:)
 
We are talking money here.



When I was a kid they have the 25 cents but now they are betting for 1 peso each throw.

The marble game. I hate this, they have this small control at the back of the board to prevent the marble from getting into the jackpot price. I know, I lost my P80 before figuring out! I'm just a bit frustrated.

Cotton Candy is what I missed the most. I grew up having my mouth dead shot pink due to this. I can hear my mom complaining about my teeth and the too much sugar intake...haha
The moon is not very charming. It looks creepy.
I can still remember way back that they have those flying trapeze, fat ladies, magicians walking on fire, they have those ladies being cut into three parts, they have those men jumping on a rope of fire and all that. I love those shows more than those money board they have though. What remains to be my super favorite are the outrageous rides that they have.

The Twister

The Octopus ride.


I convinced all of my guy friends to ride the Octopus Ride which is the most popular and has the highest scream scale….:) I was surely having fun on the ride. However, my stomach hurts for laughing out when one of my friends, who was so furious on why he has to risk his life on that ride. He was complaining how the kids should not be allowed on that ride. He also told us that he even take extra care on driving and was so mad how he had been put through a life threatening ride. I am so mean to laugh at him the whole time, and I did say "I’m sorry" for forcing him to take the ride, but I just couldn’t help it. He was just so funny freaking out like that…hehe 


Deannie and Eddie on that kid-smile. So nice to see them on that smile. You only got to see those laughs on rides like this...:)

Kurty and Jhulem looking very apprehensive.

Before the ride.
This is our first ride the other weekend...:)
My friends wished there are safety precautions before riding. Let me tell you there are no seat belts so it figures, right?  They all told me to blog about it and tell me to point out that there should be a sign that goes like this:


  Caution: 


  1.  Kids below 10 years old are not allowed.
  2. Riders should be in pairs. (They allow you to be alone with no seat belts!) 
  3. Anyone with medical condition is not allowed. (You can have a heart attack you know.)

I know it really sounds funny, but I totally agree with them. There should have been a seat belt or whatever to hold you down and to keep you secure of getting thrown out of the ride. Let me show you some photos we have.




The previous week's photo. Sorry I have to mix this, I liked this photo of us 4.

Making his counter strike life a reality.

Jakey being a sniper on those pity-looking match sticks.
We have this for our price. We end up for that one bottle of ice cold b**r after to cool off the night to talk about our experience.
Photo credits to Joeny. He surely did meet the deadline for the upload...:)
We actually went home after the Octopus ride. We were not able to ride the other rides that we were planning to take. They wouldn't risk it, and the would not let me get my way this time...:( I still love to take the horror train and the batman ride. We took the roller coaster ride the other weekend. I feel like I was being put into a mining tunnel. I would not put myself into such danger ever again. I freaked out after! I'm not sure if you have gone to a Perya before, and I don't know if you can relate to this "Only in the Pilipins" post, but I would like to share it regardless..:)



After being there twice this year and being able to experience those screeching rides- that almost got me heart attacked! I must say that it is really not safe. It’s not safe for adults how much more to kids. Extreme rides are super cool but simple rides with no safety precaution is a different story. So, be responsible. It’s fun were looking after all.  Our slogan says “It’s more fun in the Philippines”- don’t get me wrong this is true, but I hope someday we can proudly say “It’s more fun and safe in the Philippines,” right?...xoxo!

  12. At ang epic na perya sa tuwing dadarating ang ganitong Pasko. Andami kong masasayang karanasan sa perya. At hindi ko makakalimutan ay yung naghuhulog ng bente singko at ngayon ay piso na, tapos pag saktong sakto--take note, dapat saktong sakto sa bilog ay mananalo ka ng baso, pinggan, mug etc. Parang ang hirap kaya isakto yung piso sa bilog -_-

    1. tama....ang daya di pwedeng ma dikit lang sa line ung piso...wala tuloy kaming baso...:)

    1. And by the way, I heard from blogger Aicy that you're also an active SFC (which area?). I am (former actually). Nag level up na kasi ako to CFC last year eh. Now, handling SFC as Couple Coordinator here in one of the country in Mid East. Nice to know we're in the same boat-faith wise. God bless, looking forward to hear from you.

  24. Looks like you all had fun! Nothing beats local fun rides and stuff. I tried riding on the horror ride, sobrang kulit tilian kami lalo mga beki kasama hahaha yoko na maulit gwabe, mamamatay ako sa kakatawa hindi sa takot LOL! Isa pang memorable saken sa perya, nanalo ako sa lotto at ni-treat ko yung friends ko ng burger at drinks hehe. Puro masasaya lang experience ko sa perya, nakakatuwang isipin at balikan pero nakakalungkot kasi nakakamiss..

  25. Bigla ko naalala perya days nung nasa province pa ko, di ko matandaan kung may mga safety features pero yan sa inyo, kaloka nga. Mahirap at delikado talaga yan esp. for kids, dapat di binigyan ng permit yan ng city hall nyo.

  28. Your carnival looks more eclectic and a lot more fun than a lot of the cheesy carnivals I've visited here. (Don't let me kid you... I still LOVED them!) But I know what you mean about being cheated out of money. One summer, many years ago, I spent quarter after quarter after quarter, determined to win one of the games, which of course, I never did. The following year, I found out about that doggone foot pedal behind the counter.

  29. This looks like so much fun! I love carnivals.
