Of Being a Geek and K/Jdrama Addict..

Let me start with saying, "Everything boils down to respect."

This issue is not really a biggie,
except that they might misinterpret it as something I made a big deal out of because of this blog post but I just want to make a stand point. I don't force you to join me in whatever craziness I have with Korean/ Japanese actors/ anime so I would really appreciate it if you could just refrain from telling me to leave this craziness to teenagers. Fangirling knows no age. :p

...and I'm sorry if I retorted with something equally rude. Well, actually I'm not. Respect, baby. It's a give and take.

With all these said, I leave you with the root of the commotion. Min Ho! :D

Since the marching band practicing in front of our house has no plan of letting me sleep anytime soon, let me just update my blog like Ady and Cheng.

So, like the title says, I must clear my backlogs. They have been piling up somewhere in the dark corner of my memory and who knows when I would remember them again so I think it's better to write them here. And honestly? This post is more of a reminder AND apology to those who I still owe something. (Gomen! Mianhe! Sorry! m(-_-)m)

So here goes:

Backlog No. 1 - I must must must must must create my online portfolio! 
- This is a personal endeavor that I've been planning, which eventually became something that I have promised Rai-chi a looong time ago, way back our Interior Photography shoot. She needed it for her portfolio too! (Sorry Raichiiii!) I've been meaning to update my photo blog but Juan T. got the better of me. So hopefully I can make this a priority this coming week-end (or the next, if we're going to Ady's place for some brainstorming session for her wedding. :D)

Backlog No. 2 - Start a new project. 
- Gah! Tell me about it. I need to refresh my interest in photography. To tell you the truth, I've been thinking of selling Mugen since I feel so guilty about having him locked up in that air-tight container. :( I know Mugen's crying in the dark but I just can't find any inspiration at the moment. I'm hoping to get back on my feet once I get Miku, so.. There! Ganbarimasu!

Backlog No. 3 - Bookback(log) Mountain
- Word pun fail! Hahaha. But yeah, I have tons of book backlogs, which make me sad. :( I have yet to finish Kafka On The Shore, start Game of Thrones and America Gods and buy Perks of Being a Wallflower. Gah!

Backlog No. 4 - Design our office Bulletin Board
- Work related. 'Nuff said. :p

Backlog No. 5 - Get my waistline back to 27" before Ady's wedding!!
- What? Hahahahaha!

There's more, I know. But I can't seem to remember them right now since the band's distracting me. /pif

Edit: Too sleepy/ irritated to edit grammar errors. Deal with it for now, k?

A quick post before plunging head first in Friday's work load

It's weird how this perky song was making me cry at this ungodly hour of Friday.
(I was listening to it on my phone, so there's no girl in bikini on my drama scene.)

It's been my habit to listen to this song whenever I'm down or if I've been listening to scary stories. It never fails to lift me up and make me braver, like an embrace from an old friend which assures you that everything would be alright. 

And now, it's bringing me to tears because it's saying what I can't seem to find words for.

So I'll borrow the lyrics,
And now we're slightly weathered, we're slightly worn
Our hands grip together, eye to eye through the storm, yet
I still believe in ever after with you, yeahhhhh
'cause life is a pleasure with you by my side,
And there ain't no current in this river we can't ride
I still believe in ever after with you.

Heard that, Stardust?
You're still my ever after so no, there's no way I'm leaving your side. /cheese

Uber Delayed Rant on Hunger Games and Magnum

I've been meaning to put an entry about the irritating SNS wave of Magnum and how I think Hunger Games was so overrated but I changed my mind since even posting about these two has become annoying.

But for the record (haha, I'm still posting after all!), Magnum's OK. I like the almond better than the Truffle but I still like Selecta's Caramel Cheesecake best. :p

Hunger Games was also OK. The pacing's fast but the story and characters are half baked, the ending was also predictable. (Or maybe because Flip bombed me with spoilers!)

I've been eyeing the book ever since I've heard that an adaptation's coming but after reading the summary on Google, I changed my mind. I bought a copy after the movie went out (to join the craze!) but after reading it, I felt that I should have just downloaded an epub or pdf and bought American Gods instead. My gut instinct was right. Haha! The rest of the trilogy would definitely come from Pirate Bay. :p

And oh, just a thought. I remember Ron Padilla, one of my 24/7 peeps, saying that Harry Potter's legend was due to a very effective marketing strategy. Of course I said his idea was 'Riddikulus' but I did remember him after watching the movie. Hunger Games is a perfect example of what he's accusing Harry Potter to be: mass craze via marketing strategy.

And so is Magnum. :)
*Beanskie, I can imagine us exchanging opinions about these two while waiting for the PVP bus at The Columns. Missing the good 'ol days! :(

Bite Me

When Papa passed away and Mama was crying her heart inside out, I wanted to play the strong daughter so I said, "Ma, andito pa naman kami eh." to console her.

When my brother left for his apprenticeship on a shipping vessel hours before his birthday, Mama was left crying again like there's no tomorrow. I wanted to make it easier for her this time so I teased her about the tears which pissed her off and made her stop.

But now that's Arvin's about to leave for overseas work, still without any definite date or time when he would be away, just thinking about it makes me feel like a headless chicken.

There's only one thing I know, the world pressed the Pause button.Everything I've known, I've done, I've planned were put on hold so I could digest the news of him being away. Just the thought of him not by my side made me drop everything like a hot potato.

So bite me, Work. Maybe your sting would make me I understand why the only thing which remained constant for more than a decade should change.

What A Very Interesting Topic

"Me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me and ME!" she says.

OK, I get it. You love yourself and you don't want to acknowledge any word I say.

Can we move on to something more interesting now or should I just talk to our bird to get a more interesting conversation?

What a bummer first post for '12.

I think I understand why wives nag when their husbands go on drinking a binge with friends. It's not the drinking that upsets them, it's the fact that the husband can choose between wife and bed or friends and bottles, and the husband chooses the latter.

Gentlemen, do yourselves a favor and decline a night out just once. You'll be rewarded with a night of no drama, trust me.
