9.0 is up– vector madness!

February 25, 2007

Before anything else, let me introduce today’s plate. I worked so hard for her eyes… those are the most kawaii eyes I’ve ever made… so please appreciate it. Hahah. Joke. I really love the eyes but I screwed up with the rest of the body. OMG, just look at her distorted face!

Finally after a week of delay, I have a new layout! Yipee. So this is my answer to people’s question on how I make good layouts… it’s not me at all. It’s just brushes! Just get a decent version of Photoshop (Preferably ver. 7.0+) download ABR (Adobe Brushes) from some website (you may refer to my credits at the bottom) then start “brush spamming” all the way. That’s it actually.
So this morning, I’ve downloaded tree brrushes, sky brushes, more heart brushes, more swirl brushes, vector brushes, sky brushes, grass brushes, snow flake brushes, polaroid brushes, notepad brushes, grunge brushes, splat brushes and many more. Unfortunately, some of them only worked in Photoshop CS2 (screw that 30 day trial!). I decided to make a new layout out of vectors and hearts (originally decided to make one out of notebooks and photos but the brushes needed are not compatible with my version of Photoshop). I don’t like this layout much because it’s a lot messy (thus the name, love a disaster)… I also chose the wrong colors for some of the hearts… also chose too many colors… also too crowded… also I feel less fulfilled because the design is 80% downloaded brush spam. Cmon, daming reklamo. Oh well, at least it’s pink.
That’s it. Walang kwentang post naman ito! 😛 I will just add tomorrow’s post here later.

Perio na!

February 24, 2007

Woot. x2 EXP sa RO ngayon (and thus, my current plate). Sana mag-99 na ako! 30% na lang kailangan! >.

Tapos na PE. Tapos na Health. Tapos na CAT. Perio na this week. Tapos, clearance na. Grabe. Matatapos na lahat. Grabe, mamimiss ko na talaga ang Pisay. Ayoko pang umalis… pero di talaga to maiiwasan. Oh well. Gusto ko magpersonality change pagdating ng college. Hehe… Wala lang. Wala talaga akong maiisip na post. Wala naman masyadong nangyari nung hell week…

Nung Tuesday, nag chem prac test kami. Hay, sure lang ako sa anions… alinlangan ako sa cations na linagay ko kasi yung mga linagay ko, walang confirmatory test kaya asa na lang sa preliminary tests. Sigh, there goes 40% of my chem grade. Tapos nung PE, last class… may test sa badminton. Nagka minus one pa ako. Ger.

Nung Wednesday at Thursday, wala naman nangyari… halos puro break nga ang Photon. Tapos, nagkaroon ng auditions para sa movie ni Auraeus Solito entitled… “Pisay”! Woot, ansaya… yung movie script kasi, nanalo as best script sa CineMalaya kaya binigyan sya ng funds para gawin syang movie. Yung story daw, tungkol sa mga students ng Pisay way back nung 1980s. O di ba? First Philippine High School na may sariling movie. Hehe…

Friday. Pinoy perio. Pamatay talaga! Naiinis ako kasi sobrang haba! Tapos kasunod rin nun yung last CAT ever. Grabe yung mga creative march… ang mga kabaklaan! Akala ko nga sa mga Brava lang ang may kabadingan, yun pala, halos lahat ganun rin. Tapos, pinaSTP kami dahil andaming officers may birthday at dahil graduation na. Sayang… may 8 merits dapat ako kaso di ko dala tickler ko. Bawal magpasign kasi on the following week kasi di na sila officers. Oh well. That’s that.

Perio na!

First Day. Math and Biology.

Second Day. Physics and English.

Third day. Chemistry, Filipino and Economics.

I’m really pissed off!

February 22, 2007

Dapat dati pa ako gumawa ng sariling post tungkol dito, pero dahil nakakatamad magpost at meron na nauna sa akin, post ko na lang ang gawa nya.



Pisay vs. Bandila
I really have to say that ABS-CBN’s show, BANDILA, is getting over the nerves of many people in the Pisay community. There have been a number of episodes where the show has marked this school as a breeder of technically-competent barbarians. They say that the government’s investment on Pisay scholars is a waste. What does this mean?

What might be the reason of ABS-CBN’s outrage against the school? There has been one particular event in the past that may have been the cause of this dilemma. This was the poisoning that occurred last year. ABS-CBN’s struggle to cover the news was a distress for them since many students refused to talk about the issue. Didn’t the students follow ethics? It’s the school’s integrity at stake. The students just wanted to keep the news private since it would greatly affect the honor of the school.

What does this channel really want to show the people? Pisay has been sending complaints against the said TV program beacuse they have striked the school for so many times already.

So… For those people out there who believe in the non-sense they publish on television, learn to find the facts. Their only objective is to make money out of the lies they have been telling the public.


So ayun. Inis na inis talaga ako sa ABS-CBN ngayon–mga mukhang pera at walang respeto sa mga taong gustong manahimik. Ayokong mag-generalize but they’ve really gone too far with this issue.

Best Prom Ever.

February 19, 2007

Eh? Di ba dalawa lang ang prom? Oh well. Thanks talaga sa 08 for a job well done sa prom!

So before the short prom story… Here are the uber overdue plates. Argh. I’m not following my schedule anymore… I have a lot of back lag! Well so far, I still have to do today’s plate. I promise to publish it tomorrow. And so, this ends the Digimon series. I like the prom plate… I did the drawing a year ago. I dreamt of a ballet-theme prom way back then so I was inspired to make the drawing. And with that dream also, I wanted my dress to be pink. And I did.

So this is what happened. February 17, 2007. We went to Pisay at 2 oclock to get Jo. Heavy traffic jam at EDSA due to construction at Ortigas. Reached EDSA Shangrila Hotel by 4. Checked in… Room 1130. JUMPY BEDS! Ahhh, I miss the soft fluffy bed. Mom left to buy my bag and some food. Gosh, the food at the hotel room is so pricy. 150 for cup noodles?! Haha. So, Mr/Ms Make-up person comes and handles Jo first. Put on my dress. My turn for make up. Went down on 6:30. Gah, lateness. Got mask, entered ballroom, table 24. Kisses and chocolates on the table. Dinner. Pics. Table hop. Incredibly nice cotillion. Incredibly nice movie. Egg and Jao once again for Prom Queen and King. More pics. Dance. Didn’t dance much. I wanted to slow dance with him… unfortunately did not. Became a bit bitchy. Chocolate fountain. Yumyum! Ended prom. Went up the room, ate sushi, went to bed. Woke up 830. Long bath. Tub. Breakfast buffet. Sushi, Bacon, Lechon, Pancake, Bread, Yogurt, Waffles, Eggs, Fillet. Mass. Home. Sleep. End.

Happy Single Awareness Day!

February 14, 2007

I just found out from my classmates that today is Single Awareness Day. Go figure! And about today’s plate… this work was my very FIRST photoshop work which deals with scanning something and coloring it in. This was done months ago even before I started the 356 plates. I just added the transparent cheesy texts and of course, the title, date and name. Oh well, cheesy, cheesy cheesy.

Today’s our last achievement test for the whole ever! We had math and english and I was pretty surprised that I finished both tests earlier than the given time. I didn’t really study for English because Maam Bernal didn’t say anything about the coverage. As for math, I was surprised to find myself done 10 minutes earlier because I didn’t study for it because I fell asleep while attempting to do so.

After that, I went to the mall with some people. More cheesiness. While walking, you would notice that in a 5 square meter range, there would be at least a single couple… being cheesy. Even while eating lunch, I was getting sick to my stomach watching lovebirds spreading the cheese all around… so after my companions split up, I decided to go home early to avoid the cheesiness. But guess what! More cheese in the jeepney. Ger.

Oh why the hell am I bothered with cheese. I just missed CAT practice (If there ever was one) and there would be a possibility of having demerits or punishment because of that. Oh noes. And there would be regular classes tomorrow. Haha… teacher’s day! I wonder who would be Ms. Happy Feet. Oh well. Spread the love!

Bakit ngayon ka lang dumating sa buhay ko?

February 13, 2007

No, this is not a Valentine’s post. Hehe, whatever. The title refers to isaw. Yes, isaw. And why is that? Last week, when stipends came, I wanted to buy a late lunch before I reached home. I decided to buy goto but since I remembered the last time I bought one didn’t taste that good, I had to settle with lugaw isaw even though I haven’t tasted it yet. Good thing it tasted decent… and as a matter of fact, I liked it so much that I thought of buying again on the next day. So I did. And on the next, next day, I bought one again. And on the next, next, next day, I bought one again. And I thought to buy one almost everyday until the end of the school year. It was just too yummy to resist…^_^

But when Saturday came, I found out that my mom just had her semi-annual medical check-up. She found out that she had high blood pressure… just like my uncle and my lolo. Yes people, autosomal dominant trait in work. Then I became scared… what if I get it too at an early age? As we all know, one of the causes for high blood is salty and fatty food. *ehem* isaw *ehem* Oh well, I was just starting to develop my love for isaw but unfortunately, we cannot be together. Sigh…

My prom dress is out. Eek. I’m not totally happy with it. I look fat in it, I think it’s too ballooney, the beadwork is boring and it’s too plain. Hay, chipipay. Oh well. That’s okay as long as I enjoy the night… that’s what matters. And besides, the gown is pink 😀

And… today’s plates! Yay! I like it so much! I think it’s somewhat identical to the original art. I did this series because the characters of this anime are much easier to draw compared to Tsubasa Chronicles, Full Metal Alchemist, Loveless, Chobits or some other anime. There would be 2 more for the digimon series… Ken and Daisuke(Davis). I don’t think I would be able to do the sempais… too much digimon for me. The 2 ones will be out on February 15 and 16.

That’s it for today! Signing out to eat dinner and watch Asian Treasures on GMA… then I’ll hit the books since tomorrow’s the last day of the achievement tests. Math and English. Ciao!

TO ALL PISAY PEOPLE! SELLING HOPIA FOR 20 PESOS4 PIECES PER PACK. Fresh from Quiapo! Just contact me, Mark Jason, Patrick or Kevin.

Achievement Test! Yay!

February 10, 2007

First plate, inspired by Girl From Hell and Le Portrait de Petit Cossette. Second plate is my version of Kari Yagami/Hikari Yagami from Digimon 02. New series! Yay! I liked what I did with her body, digivice and crest. I’m a bit disappointed with her face though. But I still love it! Go me!

This upcoming week (after all those torturous long tests in Physics and Math) is our achievement test! Yay!
Monday (February 12)
Tuesday (February 13)
Wednesday (February 14)

Right now,, the site that allows free downloads of over 4000 anime music, has now an anime episode section where you can download anime episodes in full length. Currently, there are around 100++ episodes with fansubs online. Presently, there are anime such as Death Note, Kanon, NHK ni Youkoso, Pumpkin Scissors and Ghost Hunt. Oh well, another reason for wanting DSL. I’m sure by that time I have a faster internet connection, there would be more anime available for viewing. I also want to try Gendou’s radio feature… and maybe the KOL radio too. Hahas, wishful thinking.

And thanks to mybloglog, I found out na araw-araw nya pinupuntahan blog ko. Ako naman, kilig flattered. Ahahahahah. Joke lang. Siguro, may hinahanap lang sya sa blog ko. O baka hindi naman sya talaga yung tumitingin. Tapos, naisip ko… oh. the hate posts. Oh well, ignore nyo na yun. Feeler nyo naman na hate-na-hate ko sila. That hatred just came from one source and it just so happens that they are the victims of circumstance.
Okay, time to finish “Of Mice and Men”… even if I know the whole story already (thanks to SparkNotes).

For the sake of posting, long tests!

February 8, 2007

We finally finished our STR oral presentation this morning. Yay! Finally it’s all over. We were even surprised when we had our open forum. A lot of our classmates asked us questions. It’s not that they were really interested and enthustiastic with our report but it was because we were the very last STR reporters for the school year. Hahas. So, after the final research submission tomorrow, it’s sayonara to STR for good. We’ll just have to wait for 3rd year college for thesis. Dundun…
I was quite disappointed with our Biology long test. I won’t be surprised if I fail it… I wasn’t able to study much for it because I didn’t have my book. Mmm… math and physics long test tomorrow. Antiderivatives, integrals, chain rule, implicit differentiation, photoelectric effect, compton, bohr, [insert insane physics terms here].

Five secrets.

February 6, 2007

I’m a bit disappointed with the 02-04 plate. She looks a bit scary but I’m too lazy to repeat the plate. So I apologize to the person whom I’ve based this drawing on. I’m just not good in drawing real life people.

5 (lame) secrets… tagged by Rica

1. (My dorm mates know this) I can eat a burger or hotdog sandwich in almost one bite. Yummy!

2. (My dorm mates also know this… as well as my friends) I enjoy burping the alphabet… not as good as AJ but I can still manage to gross people out.
3. I had lice almost 3 years ago. Hoho. Shh. But now, I’m clean. ^_^
4. I’m a crybaby. I cry at least once a week for lame reasons. There was a time that I even cried for more than 2 weeks straight. Happy.
5. I stereotype girls to be maarte or shameless flirts from 2 certain exclusive school based on my experience in Pisay and from stories being told to me. And I’m constantly annoyed by these schoolmates (I still hate some until now but I don’t care about the rest). I’m sure they would hate me if I say the schools that’s why let’s just make this a semi-secret. Hint, hint… Not from Holy Spirit, St. Paul, AA. Hoho…
On the 5th one, I hope others can prove me wrong about them.
I still have to think about the people I would tag. I would want a guy to answer this one!

Erm. Oh yes, we had our Chem long test yesterday about cations… so and so. I expect to fail. In CAT, we had a test to see if we really knew who were in our platoon. We thought that we just had to recite their whole names to the officers but it turned out that we had to close our eyes, recognize a voice then say the full name of the person who spoke. Bravo 2 had 2 mistakes. Not bad really.

My prom dress would be here next week according to the dressmaker. I hope it would be pretty… it’s pomelo-pinkish (or according to my mom, it’s an old rose color). I was also able to order a cute pink and silver mask (prom theme is masquerade) from Kat. Even though it’s more pricy than what the 08 people are selling, it really looks much, much better. The picture package was just paid for yesterday. I took the All-in package because according to my dad, it’s much cheaper even though I don’t need or want everything there. I still don’t know if my mom already reserved my room in the hotel. Grabe, it seems that I’m excited for the prom but I’m actually not. Whatever! I’ve been there and done that last year that’s why it seems to be a huge bore for me. I’m more worried about our requirements and the upcoming Achievement tests. Hay. Stressful.


Today’s card giving day! Oh well. I’ll prepare myself for a nice little sermon from my parents after that. Then, I’ll be going with my brother to the ADMU HS fair. That would be my first time to go to a non-Pisay school fair. Ahehe.
Miss ko na sya. Sobra.

Quoted from Jane (The coco-manager of the VPC)
pangaea ung tawag sa napakalaking land mass sa earth nung nagsstart palang ung earth.
tapos as time passes, dahil na rin sa maraming-maraming reasons like the collision of plates, nagdivide ung pangaea until there came a time na somewhere sa earth, nagkaron ng ganitong formation ng mga islands.
sabi nga ng pink soda, the only constant thing is change. kaya naman nag-change pa rin ung formation ng islands. nagcocollide sila at nagddrift. nagiging mas close sa ibang islands ung ibang islands, at nagiging mas malayo naman ung iba.
at any rate, posible ba at malaki ba ung probability na magkaron ulit ng ganitong formation ang land?
nagtatanong lang
Ako rin. Nagtatanong rin.
Hay buhay 😦
