Holy Week Happenings + 6th Anniversary ! ! !


April 3, 2010 … I met up with Dada in Megamall after my Saturday shift and we watched Clash of the Titans.

We left around 6:30PM and rode a bus going to Sucat. We arrived in his place shortly after 8PM. No one else was around because the rest of his family went to Ate Leslie‘s farm to spend the Easter Sunday.

This became a chance for Dada and I to bond some more and get the “newly wed” type of feeling (IMHO). I had to admit, we both had personalities that surfaced only at that time. He knows that I couldn’t cook so I was never a good help to him around the kitchen. All I could do was stare at him while he was cooking. I also don’t know how to use the broom! To compensate for my shortcomings, I was the one who washed the dishes. I also noticed that he’s very meticulous, especially on household chores. He even asked me to sweep the floor! Golly, I seldom clean my room and there I was cleaning their house. It somehow turned me off since I’m not a neat-freak nor do I like doing chores. I was contemplating if I am ready to commit to someone who’s my exact opposite… It’s going to be tough but I hope I’ll make the right choice.

Apart from that, my stay in their house has been wonderful. It is a new experience for me and I like it! We were not able to do a DVD marathon but it’s alright since we’re able to talk about other serious matters. Spending quality time with Dada is always good and I am really happy being with him.


April 11, 2010 … Dada and I spent our 6th Anniversary. Yey! Well, it’s supposed to be April 13th but we both have work on that day so we celebrated it earlier. I was very grumpy at first because I was expecting that he’d plan something new to make the day extra special but he didn’t have anything in mind at the time. We just set the argument aside and we managed to spend more quality time together. He also told me that he plans on taking me out of town again during my birthday! Weeee~~~! Dada also showed me how Guitar Hero works. It’s nerve-racking but I am beginning to like it! After the arcade trip, we had dinner in Burgoo. The food was costly but very delicious! There was a large sheet of paper covering the table and the waitress used it to write our names on it. She left the crayons on the table so Dada and I doodled on it and I also took the cocktail umbrellas as a memento.



More (or less) this February . . .

The past weeks have been so dull and only a few good things happened aside from my usual routine.


Dada and I went to Enchanted Kingdom as part of our out-of-town trip. It's been delayed for a couple of days but it's okay. There were not a lot of people in the theme park so we're able to go to the rides we want – including the Space Shuttle! Weee~


I finally was able to visit Manong Nomer. I showed him the design I made for the gown I want and he said he can finish it before the photoshoot date. I shelled out P2,500 for it because I asked him to look for the materials since I no longer have time to shop in Divisoria.


I've been with FiFi for almost a month. I lost 4 lbs and an inch of my waistline. Whew! It's a small progress but it's still good! I'm also trying to control the things I'm eating because I do not want to regain the weight lost.

Tropic Thunder ! ! !

"A group of self-absorbed actors set out to make the most expensive war film. But after ballooning costs force the studio to cancel the movie, the frustrated director refuses to stop shooting, leading his cast into the jungles of Southeast Asia, where they encounter real bad guys." Yahoo Movies

Dada and I watched Tropic Thunder in MOA right after we attended his niece's baptismal. We were supposed to watch Igor but the next showing was pretty late.

TT is really funny as it shows the lengths that Hollywood actors would do to become in-character and produce a great film. There were several gory moments but mostly it was fun!

It stars Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr and Jack Black. Dada also guessed right that Tom Cruise was the fat bad-ass on the film. I also spotted Tobey Maguire and Lance Bass.

I give it :

Happenings this 5th Week of September . . .


Sept.29 (Mon)

I was busy editing the rest of my photos and uploading them in my Multiply account. I also visited some other cosplayers' websites but I didn't get to snag any photo from them. Ayan kasi, hiwalay nang hiwalay sa congregation. Hahaha!

I also decided to lock my VOX for friends and family viewing only — except for non-personal stuff and previous works.


Sept.30 (Tue)

I lost interest on the cosplayer bishie I was eying on. He only looks good with a wig and he called me EMO in one of my posts. I really hate it! That turned me off even if it was only meant as a joke. Hindi ko na s'ya crush! Hahaha~

Happenings this 4th Week of September 2008 . . .


Sept.22 (Mon)

I wasn't able to go home because of the split-off so Dada and I just spent some time together before we went to work. I requested him to go with me on OtakonEK but he said he already traded his day-off with his officemate. Booo~~~

Anyway, Jeiro will be joining me and we'll both be wearing blond wigs! Weeeeeeeeee~~~~


Sept.23 (Tue)

I finally got the package from Rui and I like both the earrings and the annulet. Since they were delivered late, I didn't have time to put them on and take photos. I also ordered a bonnet from Jaja but I requested her not to have it shipped anymore because it might not arrive on time. I'll just get it from her on the event day itself.


Sept.24 (Wed)

I used that hype to buy make-up for the cosplay and do a test-run on my

accessories. The knot of the choker I bought got detached because I pulled it too hard and it was just glued, not sown. Nonetheless, I was able to remedy it so it was okay and it still looked good on me. The cross earrings are wonderful, although they are being blocked by my wig so they are not noticeable on most of the shots I took. After a couple of weeks, I wore my Sharingan again and I am not sure if it looks good with my Lolita ensemble or not. It looks good without the wig because I have the black-red-white konbi. Bahala na si Batman on the event day!


 Sept.27 (Sat)

I was working but all I could think about was OtakonEK! I guess it helped reducing the stress I got from stupid customers. I really hate our shift. Time passes by so slowly here.

I had a little chit-chat with Dada and I told him that we need to cancel our breakfast date because I will be going home after my shift and prepare a couple of things for tomorrow. Instead, we had a dinner date in KFC then we went to ShopWise to look for a Lolita-ish bag. One thing I noticed about him is that he criticizes a lot of things when we go shopping, but he really has taste and he knows what looks good and what doesn't. This is like the 3rd or 4th time he went shopping with me and he gets to pick up the item I need and I end up liking it!

Jeiro and I are also making plans for tomorrow. I read Azrael's post and he said there are *shiiiiin* 384 *shiiiiin* registered cosplayers who're going to OtakonEK!!! OMG!!! I told her that I'm anxious to ride the shuttle in Glorietta because assuming all or even just half of those participants (with their chaperons) will be riding the 9:30AM shuttle, not everyone will be accommodated.


 Sept.28 (Sun)

Uhm, I'll post this one separately.

*sings* Let's go to E.K.~~ Let's go to OtakonEK~!!!

Happenings this 3rd Week of September 2008 . . .

Sept.15 (Monday)

I went to Dada's place so we could spend quality time again. He showed me two MMORPG's that he's playing — Grand Chase and ROSE Evolution. GC avatars are cute and it has a Platform / Side-scrolling interface, like Maple Story. The controls are a bit confusing but maybe I can get used to it if I play some more. ROSE was once available locally but it closed about a year or so ago. It's like a mix of Ragnarok Online and Tales of Pirates. Since ROSE was created by Gravity, the sound effects were similar to RO. Hahaha!

I also wanted to get his DJ Max PSP game but the file was too large and I don't have free space left. Darn, I need to get a 4GB memory stick…


Sept.16 (Tuesday)

The GC and ROSE apps that Dada gave me were not working so I couldn't install them in my PC. Dada told me to just download the client from the main website. I did that but the file still ended up being corrupted. I downloaded it for 8 hours!!! Darn game. T_________________T

I visited some online shops in Multiply and I got addicted with gothic and punk lolita accessories! OMG! I am draining money once again on cosplay items! Nuuuuuuuuuuuuu~~~


Sept.17 (Wed)

After shift, Roy called me up and told me that Faye's back in the country. She already told him about some of the things that I revealed to her via the YM chat a few days back. I sensed that something bad is gonna happen so before that, I immediately called and told her not to mention my name because I don't want to riot with him in the office.

I loaded my GCash so I could pay Rui the EGL wristband and earrings. She said she'll also lend me her black-and-red striped socks to add to my Lolita ensemble. I also got the Punk-Lolita choker from Jaja and it's really pretty! I tried wearing the crown I bought from Marien a few weeks back but I had a hard time making it stay put on my head. So, I decided that I'll just let Thuggles wear it once we go to OtakonEK. Sigh, how I envy these ladies because they have the resources and skill to make Lolita stuff.

I got my Wise Card from Shopwise after three months of constantly purchasing there and collected receipts amounting to 5k! Woot! I dunno how it works but it's a good addition to my electronic cards collection. LoL!

I noticed that the room I am renting is getting a wee bit crowded. I have to clean my room in Fairview and bring back some stuff I no longer need in the condo. It's a good thing my roommate isn't perplexed when she saw my katana and wakizashi lying on my bed!


Sept.18 (Thu)

It's as if fate would have it, I woke up a few minutes before I got a text message from Dan. He asked me to come to his place before he leaves Manila tomorrow. I passed by their unit before I went to work and he gave me a key chain with the Hong Kong logo printed on it. In return, I gave him one of my cross pendants as a parting gift. He escorted me to the lobby and I hugged him tightly one last time. I asked him when he'd be coming back and he said "After 6 months … 2 years at most." It really hurts when I say "Goodbye" to people close to me and I don't know when I'd be seeing them again. He invited me to Butuan for his birthday but I told him I have the OtakonEK to attend to and I don't have enough VL credits. *sigh*


Sept.19 (Fri)

Hmm, another quote that I came up with because of stress … "Yes, they're like dinosaurs – everything is big except for their brains!!!™"


Sept.20 (Sat)

I registered Irene in place of my Wrath costume for OtakonEK and it's been approved by Azrael.

Rui sent me a text message stating that she'll ship my items on Monday. I got an email from Mannequin Inc. (wig shop) telling me that their store is open Monday-Saturday 'til 7pm. Because of the shift change, I won't be able to visit them! Groan~

Dada fetched me from the office and we had breakfast in McDonald's. We talked about issues going on within our workplace and it seems that we're both having difficulties with the career path we chose. I told him that I'll only stay for six months and then I will start looking for a new job because even though 24/7 offers a high pay, I don't get to enjoy life as it happens. It's really contrary to their motto which is "Work-Life Balance."

We headed to the condo and he took my PSP memory stick so that he can use it to save the installer of the new game he wants me to try out. I told him that I plan not to go home this weekend since we only have 1 day off so it might take a while before I use it.

I asked him to leave his PSP with me so I can play DJ Max but he teasingly refused. He said that if I really wanted his PSP, then I must sing for him! I really hate singing and I get mad when people ask me to do things I don't want to do. I told him that he's abusing his rights as my boyfriend but he just laughed. *sigh* I sang for him anyway – just a few lines from "Runaway" by The Corrs since it was the song being played that time. He put his memory stick on my PSP and that erased the saved data of DJ Max! I dunno exactly what happened but he said maybe it's because his memory stick isn't original or something… @__@


Sept.21 (Sun)

Since Mannequin Inc. is closed right now, I tried checking other wig shops to look for the blond hair similar to Jeiro's. There's Scarlet in Robinson's Galleria. I didn't find what I was looking for but I saw a very gorgeous long curly red wig and it's P5,600! OMG! It's 5x the price of my costume! I didn't have money to buy it so I got out of Galle as quickly as I can and rode a taxi going to the Greenhills Shopping Center. I found a shop there called Lynelle and I think they're the sister-company of Mannequin because the sample photos on their catalogs are the same. I found the wig I was looking for and I got it for P1,500. I hurriedly went back to the condo and I'm glad I didn't get lost!
