Maria Clara or Maria Ozawa ? ? ?

"Akala mo MARIA CLARA, yun pala MARIA OZAWA." This is one of those Facebook fan pages that made me LOL!

I don't know the direct translation but this is my version of it… "You thought she's 'Maria Clara' but in reality she's  'Maria Ozawa' "

Maria Clara is one of the characters in Jose Rizal's novel "Noli Me Tangere" (Touch Me Not) … She is a symbol of purity, modesty and fidelity.

Maria Ozawa, on the other hand, is a sex symbol — a porn star. Tee-hee~

Guys coined this saying to describe a girl who they think looks so decent, innocent or naive only to find out that she's actually an immoral woman who opens her legs to anyone.

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~!!!

Your number is: 4

The characteristics of #4 are: A foundation, order, service, struggle against limits, steady growth.

The expression or destiny for #4:
Order, service, and management are the cornerstones of the number 4 Expression. Your destiny is to express wonderful organization skills with your ever practical, down-to-earth approach. You are the kind of person who is always willing to work those long, hard hours to push a project through to completion. A patience with detail allows you to become expert in fields such as building, engineering, and all forms of craftsmanship. Your abilities to write and teach may lean toward the more technical and detailed. In the arts, music will likely be your choice. Artistic talents may also appear in such fields as horiculture and floral arrangement, as well. Many skilled physicians and especially surgeons have the 4 Expression.

The positive attitudes of the 4 Expression yield responsibility; you are one who no doubt, fulfills obligations, and is highly systematic and orderly. You are serious and sincere, honest and faithful. It is your role to help and you are required to do a good job at everything you undertake.

If there is too much 4 energies present in your makeup, you may express some of the negative attitudes of the number 4. The obligations that you face may tend to create frustration and feelings of limitation or restriction. You may sometimes find yourself nursing negative attitudes in this regard and these can keep you in a rather low mood. Avoid becoming too rigid, stubborn, dogmatic, and fixed in your opinions. You may have a tendency to develop and hold very strong likes and dislikes, and some of these may border on the classification of prejudice. The negative side of 4 often produces dominant and bossy individuals who use disciplinarian to an excess. These tendencies must be avoided. Finally, like nearly all with 4 Expression, you must keep your eye on the big picture and not get overly wrapped up in detail and routine.

Your Soul Urge number is: 1

A Soul Urge number of 1 means:
Your Soul Urge is the number 1. With a Soul Urge number of 1, you want to lead and direct, to work independent of supervision, by yourself or with subordinates. You take pride in your abilities and want to be recognized for them. You may seek opportunities to display your strength and usefulness, wanting to create and originate. In your desire to manage the big picture and the main issues, you may often leave the details to others.

The positive 1 Soul Urge is Ambitious and determined, a leader seeking opportunities. There is a great deal of honesty and loyalty in this character. If you possess positive 1 Soul Urge qualities, you are very attainment oriented and driven to success. You are a loyal friend and strictly fair in your business dealings.

The negative side of the 1 Soul Urge must be avoided. A negative 1 is apt to dominate situations and people; the home, the spouse, the family and the business. Emotions aren't strong in this nature. If you possess an excess of 1 energy, you may, at times, be boastful and egotistic. You must avoid being too critical and impatient of trifles. The great need of the 1 Soul Urge is the development of friendliness, and a sincere interest in people.

Your Inner Dream number is: 3

An Inner Dream number of 3 means:
You dream of artistic expression; writing, painting, music. You would seek to more freely express your inner feeling and obtain more enjoyment from life. You also dream of being more popular, likable, and appreciated.




My take on this … Hmmm, some are correct while some are not.

I do struggle against limits. Sometimes, I just dunno when to give up.
I really am willing to work overtime, provided I get something good in return.
I am good at teaching, but I don't like teaching.
I am artistic … but I dig painting over music.
I hate responsibilities, but I strive to do my best when I am required to do so.
I am dogmatic and stubborn.
I do concentrate too much on details rather than see the bigger picture.
I love recognition. The littlest attention gives me happiness. Haha!
I do get urges. LOL!
I do wanna become popular… but mostly it's because I like getting attention.
I do want to succeed in the things I do.

I am the opposite of Order. I am mostly Chaotic – literally and figuratively.
I HATE FLOWERS (except the red rose)… so I don't dig flower arrangements.
I may be arrogant, but never bossy. Well, at least I don't think I am 'bossy' hehe~
I am ambitious but I don't want to lead. I suck at that.
My favorite number is 5. I am always associated with that number.

Random Stuff again . . .

*originally posted as a comment on one of my online buddies' blog entries, trying really hard to change my Engalog to pure English .. hahaha!*



it's everywhere … scrutinizing someone or something that does not appeal to us is part of being human.

im sure, all of us already said "THAT'S SO UGLY!" or "EEEWWW!" or anything like that at least ONCE.

there will always be people and things that we will not like and we tend to criticize them. if you say that you have never ridiculed anyone or anything in your entire life, then you're not human. you must be a god!



if a person chooses to be with a particular group just because they're all gorgeous and/or rich, then that person is not really after friendship. that person merely wants to fit in, get attention and be popular. common interests, acceptance and care are the foundations of a true friendship.

we cant please everyone. people have different tastes and there will always be conflicts … so, people select their friends … hot chicks and blokes ; cheaps and cheesy ; gorgeous men for beautiful women ; the rich and the famous ; nerds with geeks ; cosplayers and animé otakus (hehehe!) … even so, the reason why they form a particular group that's different from others is because they share the same interests, they feel that they belong and they are happy with each others' company.



i still believe that love, communication and understanding are what keep relationships alive. having a partner who is rich+famous+gorgeous is a big bonus, but it should never be a must. although it's part of human nature to select someone who can give him / her the best things life can offer. that depends on how a person defines "the best things in life" … ^_^



all people are born equal. cliché but that's the truth. we all didnt have clothes and are covered in blood when we appeared in this world. however, we are brought up by our families in different ways. some are well-fed while some are not. some kids are satisfied playing "patintero" while some demand Nintendo Wii's. some are lucky with life, some are unfortunate. some are content, some are never satisfied.

life is never fair so it's up to us on how we can cope up with it.

Rabid Wolverine …

I know, it's an old thing … but I am still baffled as to how a person such as Chris Benoit would do such a thing – or if he really did that to his family and to himself…

Chris Benoit has been a pro-wrestler for many years (I think over 20 years already) and he's really good at what he's doing. He's been one of my idols along with Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Triple H, Eddie Guerrero and our very own Batista.

He's famous, he's rich, he's got a family, he's got everything. WWE people say that he's a real icon and he's good for the business. I didn't hear any comments from his family members as well. His neighbors say that he's nice — not so warm but nice, nonetheless.

So why did he kill himself and his family? What was the reason behind it?

I searched all over the net and I found no straight answer as to why… One website say that his excessive anger might have been triggered because he took in anabolic steroids. Do these drugs really cause paranoia?

Forensics may hold the key as to what really happened … but they said it will take weeks before they get results. Hmph! I guess even CSI-like organizations can't solve it as quickly as they do it on television.
