We Won!!!






I have uploaded some of the pictures and videos on my facebook account.


At first we thought that we'll have a difficult time adjusting to the size of the venue but during the rehersal prior to the program, everything was somehow sorted :)





P.S.

Thanks to those who shared their vids and pics.

Losing Something Important and Gaining Unnecessary Stuff

About a week ago, I lost my player due to negligence on my part. I feel very bleak that time because I'm one of those people who can't function without listening to any music and it is my fault so I don't even bother thinking about replacing it. Looking back, I've already lost a couple of players including a second gen shuffle and my first ever generic mp3 player and even if all of them are really cheap and common, I still bought it from money that I earned! WAH!! I guess my family sensed my mood and my sister decided that she'll lend me her nano until I have enough to buy a new one <3

My only issue is that I'm quite meticulous in searching for something that involve players and cameras and I usually spent days surfing sites such as shopwiki and tipidpc and other similar shopping/reference sites that not only show where you could purchase the item but they also have guides and forums where you could post your questions and check infos on the product you want. It is time consuming but it is worth it. AND I MEAN IT!

I just really wish that my sister won't miss it after a month or so since this is how long I take take to review and make decisions for gadgets like these...

................................^.^................................

Because of many sleepless nights thinking of who might have taken my player, where could we practice for the dance competition AND how could I attend the practice sessions, I somehow gathered several temporary "moles" in my forehead. I'm talking about pimples here okay! @.@ They're ugly, they're big and I have a lot of them now! WAH! It looks like my forehead is experiencing a very fruitful harvest season for pimples >.<

Thank goodness for my sister whom we also call the health and beauty guru (HAHAHA), the pimples population seem to be in control right now. Let's just hope that come contest day, they'll be GONE!

................................^.^................................

And speaking of health and beauty, we've just discovered this makeup brand that is really cheap but does wonders! You should check out E.L.F. (EyesLipsFace.com). They have a wide range of products that's very easy on the budget :) For the actual buying part, if you prefer to do your shopping online, you may visit their site or shopwiki. However if you prefer to visit the mall and try it first, they're available in SM Department stores :P

Randomness for this Weekend

If ever they'll confirm my trip to the UK, I'll definitely check out different hotels in Glasgow, Dorset and Cambridge. Why? Because I saw my college Prof's multiply site and he posted breathtaking pictures! There's also a picture of a hotel in Malaysia (if I remember correctly) that has a very nice architecture.

I really think that guy has almost everything: brains, money, the TALENT (for teaching and photography) and looks. He definitely looks cute for me in a rather dorky way [NOTE: I love dorky look! Ask any of my friends and they'll tell you that I really like guys who wears glasses]. :P

................................^.^................................

I really don't want to go anywhere this Saturday since I'll be having a 6-day work schedule this coming week. And I want to hibernate til Sunday afternood. HOWEVER I don't have any choice since I have to buy the fans that we'll be using for our dance. I really am in a pinch >.<>

................................^.^................................

I really want to sleep for more than 6 hours but my stupid body clock refuses to adjust to my new work schedule @.@ I am already thinking of asking a doctor for a prescription drug that I could take but my mama still insists that a glass of warm milk would make me sleep faster than any drug.

................................^.^................................

I do wonder though where I'll get the money to buy warm milk...

HYDE's VAMPS and Halloween and DMC4

I've seen the video of Love Addict (I am so delayed >.<) and I'm still trying to decide if I like it or not. It's just so weird to see that vampire in the video...
................................^.^................................


I've read somewhere that HYDE always has something special for Halloween but does anyone know if this is one of the reason why his schedule for VAMPS is SOOOO hectic?


................................^.^................................

Does anyone know at what particular part of the game do they play Drink it Down? I mean I know that it is part of the OST for DMC4. But do they play it whenever there's a battle or is it just for the Op-Ed credits? I don't have any PS3 so I won't be able to check it as usual.


And on the subject of game consoles, I somehow checked tipidpc and SHOPwiki (my favorite online shopping reference tools :D) and since the price is still above the allowance allocated for miscellaneous expenses, it looks as if it would still take a loooooonngggggg time before I could purchase one. Hopefully, L'arc en Ciel would still be active by that time and they're still makes OSTs and singles for games and animes T.T

Things I'll NEVER Forget Before Traveling Outside of the Country

As usual, because of my busy schedule, I was unable to post the details from our trip to Hong Kong. I've decided to split it into two or three. Some will focus on the concert and the whole HK experience and others will have the photos and the maps and other stuff that I got from there. THIS one however will serve as my primer (or a reminder to myself) as to what NOT to do/forget...

Before the Trip
We encountered several issues but the major ones will be passport delivery delay, choosing between a free place to stay [subject to space availability] or booking a
hotel, bagging the perfect airline tickets, finance and of course, the concert tickets!


Passport
Make sure that you have this before anything else! A concert or game ticket would be useless if you don't get your passport in time.

Airplane Tickets
If an airline have an ongoing promo, grab it and don't wait for others before you make the decision! It might be too late and I'm talking about several thousands here and not just hundreds.

Hotels
There are a lot of ways to
book or look for one. The top and most obvious way is to look online. You may visit sites such as easytobook.com or the lonelyplanet just to have an idea as to what is available.

Luggage
I know it is good to invest in a few quality luggage but lets be practical. If you think that the next time you'll need a luggage for travel would be five or ten years from now, then I suggest that you head to Baclaran, Divisoria or Quiapo and buy something really cheap and please, don't buy those bags that worth Php1x,xxx+!

Finance
Save up and plan! It is and will always be the best thing to remember.


I'll cut this short now since I'm already sleepy. But once my brain received the rest it so deserve, I'll edit this if there are more things that should be listed here.

From Japan with Love

I thought my day at the office would still be the same boring stuff however I was surprised when manong told me that a package arrived for me. Can you guess what it is? :D Wehehehe. It is the L'7 Tour phone strap that I've been waiting for ages O.O It is gorgeous and small and kawaii!



Special thanks to Debbie who bought this for me :)

Where's my Mail?

I just so hate receiving late mails! When the postman makes a delivery, they just leave the letters by the gate instead of dropping it in our mailbox >.<

This got me thinking if we should change our
mailbox's size or perhaps we could setup multiple mail boxes. I saw this site that has lots of mailbox designs and I'm planning on replacing ours with something that is out of this site (or a lookalike). At least, it would be protected from the dogs AND the rain. However, I'm still unable to find a mailbox that is for a postman who refuses to look for a mailbox @.@

Second Post for the Month!

Isn't this great?! I mean I am not a blog-type of person since I hate writing and I prefer reading other people rant and rave so I am surprised myself that this site is still alive after 7 months (wohoo!) A great accomplishment for a person who took a month just to write a short description for a friend for their school picture book :D

Surprisingly, I find this really relaxing instead of tedious and it distracts me from TONS of issues that would only give me more wrinkles than I care to have at my age. Things like work, the upcoming dance competition, applying for a second job: these are my daily toxins and the list could go on so I'll just stop with these three, okies?

Anyway, another thing I like about my current "routine" is that I am forced to check my grammar! hehehe. I don't have a perfect grasp on any of those grammatical mumbo jumbos so please bear with a few errors here and there. In fact, I would really appreciate it if you could point out these mistakes to me :)

-----------^.^-----------

My post lately was all about toys, my search for toys and more toys so I'm thinking of shifting the focus on my manga and anime fascination for the coming months or so since their days are numbered*.



*Explanation to be posted on a separate title since my brain is telling me that I should sleep or else my eyes would destruct in 10 seconds...

Treasure Box!

I have mentioned that I am currently infatuated with building sets and puzzles, right? Anyway, found this really neat site that showed me *finally* where the good, old fashioned toys could be found!

It is really, really neat and they even have the
hometown carnival set which is similar to my Happy Meal Ferris wheel. And if you'll visit their site, they even show what is the usual price range for the item you're searching for, all the stores that has it and the price per store! Online shopping made easier since you won't have to switch or bookmark different pages when comparing different offers :)

I think my luck is really improving with regards to these kind of stuff :D
