Talk about vanity >.>

March 13, 2007

Last Saturday was my birthday. Wee… and therefore that means a new layout is needed. Honestly, I feel uneasy with the new skin because my face is so right there… I found that picture lying around with my other stuff… I was a bit inspired by it because of the candle. It reminds me of birthday candles so I thought of the layout’s theme. Me. Bwuahahahah. Yuck ang vain.

My family and I heard mass at 6:30, ate breakfast at Jollibee and ate lunch at Moomba. Moomba is a Mediterranean bar and resto found in Quezon City which specializes at serving ostriches. Sad to say, I didn’t like the taste of ostrich. I rather eat my birthday cake… and that’s what I did when we arrived at home. I devoured it. I was also surprised at my cake… it had a design of a blue green fairy… really reminds me of our class play.
I had two gifts for myself… one is…

Yay. Finally, Level 99 na sya. I plan to laze around in Midgard a bit more before going to the Valkyrie.

And the second one, since my lola gave me cash as a gift, I plan to buy myself a new place. Sana matuloy talaga. Then after that, I plan to get a life.

That day was a bit sad… True, some were able to greet me but… I dunno. Ever felt that someone greeted you for the sake of saying that “I didn’t forget your birthday so don’t get the hell mad at me” ? Sucky, right? I dunno, daig pa sya ng automated email galing sa mga forums at birthday alarms. Daig pa sya ng mga tao na ngayon ko lang nakilala… mas may paki at mas sincere pa sila. Oh well, why am I expecting much? After all, it’s only someone that takes me for granted. Bahala na… Nakakadepress lang kasi.

Speaking of new people, I joined a Pinoy Otaku forum…

I don’t usually join forums that much asides from the ones made by the people I personally know but I found this one quite interesting. Right now, they’re recruiting members and if anyone is interested, you can just drop by and register. Gogogo, when they reach 250 members, they might possibly make me an admin. Weee.


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.

New series for the 356 plates. There would be 27 plates with this title. Hopefully, I would complete it by April.


I have a gift for you! A new layout! I hope you like it kahit di ako yung gumawa. My original plan was to move to a new domain when 02-03-07 came but I still haven’t ordered it up until now.
Soon to come!

I really have nothing to post about so I think I’ll post my Kingdom Of Loathing standings as of today.

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 😦

Project CI86

January 20, 2007

I’ll merge yesterday’s post to today’s post because I really had no topic for the previous one.

Woot! I’m so happy today! …oh yeah, btw, the first plate is a random plate. Kinda reminds me of the prom. Speaking of which, my parents were able to reserve a room for me and my mom at Edsa Shang. It costs P4500 thanks to the group rate (It’s really $180 or roughly P9000). They also told me that I can get another room for me and my friends if I want. However, I doubt that the girls would want to get one due to a lot of expenses. I doubt that I could even get the dress that I like… my mom goes arguing about getting a simple one since I’m just going to use it for one night.

The next plate was just unexpected. It’s just toying around with colors and brushes and I thought, Why not make this a Pisay Series plate? And here it is. PE-ness. Seriously, I’m losing ideas for my future plates already.

Okay, going back. My dad asked me to do a website project that I call Project CI86 for his HS classmates. I gladly agreed to do it though I didn’t know really what I was supposed to do. They would just hand over to me the things and resources and I’ll be doing the dirty work. But it really excited me a lot! At least I would do something productive in my life for a change. And the price that we agreed upon is me moving within next week! Yes! I’m planning to move when my blog turns 2 months old (February 3). I’m already planning and fixing my stuff for it. Be happy for me! Wee! Oh well. Another thing gone from the wishlist. I just can’t contain my excitement! Yay! Yay! Yay!!!

Oh yeah. New layout pala. It’s a navi and a non-navi one! I figured that my sidebar was too messy so I transfered things that would seem useless to others to the navigation section. It’s also my first animated layout courtesy of Image Ready. I wanted my new skin to be something somewhat boring formal for a change. So with a bit of the flower and swirly brushes, this is what came out. This is my seventh skin and possibly my last one for this blog. Ay, may magtatampo pala sa akin kung last ko na ito. There’s going to be a last layout possibly on the 3rd. Too bad, I absolutely loved the animated thingy.

It’s YMSAT this week. The images above were Rubidium o7’s Rubidigoo (Yup, until now, I still have my Rubidigoo) and Magic Squishee for the YMSAT last year. Wala lang. Time sure flies pretty fast. Parang kailan lang na pumupunta kami sa UP para bumili ng mga kung anu-ano para sa rubidigoo na yan… kahit di ko sila kagrupo… heehee. And now, we have this Physics magic trick thing for this year. Haha. Good luck to us.

I’ll end the post here. According to the UPCAT results would be posted on the fourth week of January. Others say that it would still be on February so I’m not keeping my hopes that high for getting the results this week. Oh well.

Digimon Skin! Yay!

January 8, 2007

I have a new layout due to the fact that some people can’t see my entries and a few of them tag back. Hahah. This is my 6th blogspot skin… it looks like that I change my layout/skin every week! This is a Digimon non-navigation layout, image courtesy of meru-chan (deviant art site stated at the credits). I edited the image with a bit of vector, calculus and C++ (programming language) brushes. This skin was the fastest one Ive ever made… the image was made under 10 minutes or so but the coding took me 20-30 minutes to edit. I love the image a lot… it consists of the “goggle-boys” who are leaders/main characters of each Digimon Series…. Taichi (Digimon Adventure), Daisuke (Digimon Adventure 02), Takato (Digimon Tamers) and Takuya (Digimon Frontier) even though I partly watched Digimon Frontier (Takuya). It really reminds me of my childhood when I was obsessed with Digimon… the series, movies, books, plushies, shirts, midis/mp3s, stickers, figurines, assembled toys, trading cards, playstation games… everything! Until now, I still try to get in touch with my childhood memories. Wala lang. Happy sya 🙂

Today (or yesterday, since I’m writing already at Tuesday) was a regular Monday. Flagcem, English, Math, Bio, ComSci, Homeroom, Physics, Uber Early Disimissal.

It was already a day after the retreat but I could sense that the batch still had a “hangover” from what has happened over the weekend. During flag cem and when we were at homeroom class (maam edulan wasn’t around), some of my classmates were dancing to songs from the retreat.

After classes, the best noypi group ever in Photon (haha XP) had a meeting for the board game which would be due on Friday. Marie and I first bought stuff in National Book Store with Jamie and Eunice. When we came back, we started working and barely made progress. Hahah. I hope we make a good one on time.

And also I found out that I passed the Ateneo Entrance Exams! Yipee! Visit their site at for the results. I was able to get my first choice which was BS Computer Science. So that means that my score was at the top 15% of the accepted examinees. Wahahah. Good thing for Jo! She was able to be an Ateneo Freshman Merit Scholar! Woot! I’m so proud of her! But too bad that I didn’t apply for a scholarship… the tuition is just too high! That just means that I have to wait for the UPCAT and DOST results. Honestly, I just took the exam for “bragging rights”. I really wanna study at UP. Pero sosyal pakinggan na nakapasa ka sa Ateneo. Okay rin yung Mapua… sounds nice to hear that I passed an entrance test for a triple degree course. I didn’t take UST because I had no plans on going to a med school. I also don’t like to take exams for schools abroad. I don’t want to leave the Philippines. Wahah.

So this ends the post. I still have to edit the previous temporary post tomorrow/ tonight. Ciao.

December is very, very cold!

December 18, 2006

Part 2 of today’s post.

Scrap the second to the last paragraph of my previous post. I was having second thoughts on going to the Rb gimik a while ago because I had no idea on how to get to Eastwood. Luckily, Ed was on the rescue and he agreed to meet up at Mcdo Katips to take me there. Actually, I thought that Ed was Joey since he kept on texting me with a bunch of smilies. üüü. I didn’t want to ask who was texting me… nahiya lang ako. I just assumed it was Joey who was sending those messages. Wahahh. Sorry Ed.

I was a bit late with the meeting at Mcdo. I had to wait for a long time to get a jeep to UP Campus and when I arrived in UP, we had to wait for the jeep to be filled. Andy was the first person I saw, then Ed. We then rode going to Eastwood. It was my first time to go to Eastwood and I pretty liked it there. It was like taking a stroll in the park. It was also windy. It just goes to show that Christmas is approaching and December is very, very cold.

When we came to the cinema (meeting place), it was still close so we had to wait there until someone came along. Axel came in around 30 minutes later. Rr came next, then Louie. We then decided to eat lunch first. We had a hard time choosing where to eat since most of the restaurants in Eastwood were too expensive. We finally decided to settle at Tokyo Tokyo. Mmm, beef terriyaki.

Later, we had a hard time deciding on a movie. We had four choices— Tenacious D, Happy Feet, Casino Royale and A Good Year. We crossed out A Good Year from our list because it still started at 2:55. The rest started at 1:40, 1:05 and 1:10, respectively. Andy and Ed also both watched the first 2 movies and RR watched the first 3 movies so we really had a hard time to choose what movie to watch. We finally decided to settle it with a flip-a-coin. Due to the higher probability of winning, we chose Casino Royale. We bought 8 tickets priced at 150 each. It was expensive but it was worth it. I liked the cinema… except for the fact that it was SOO SOO cold. Even if I did have a jacket, it was chilly.

Before the movie started, Kat and Tim were able to catch up with us. Kat had an interview prior to the gimik and Tim’s village didn’t have electricity so they were able to come along. I don’t usually like James Bond movies since I’m pretty slow in picking up storylines with those kind of movies but I pretty much enjoyed this one… I wouldn’t appreciate it though if I didn’t know anything about poker. It would also be much nicer if there were less making-out scenes. ^^

The movie ended around 3:40-ish. Ed brought Andy, Axel and me to Katipunan. I got off at the Ateneo and went straight home. Good thing I didn’t spend much on this outing. I was able to spend less than 350! But too bad that there was no studio pic 😦

We *finally* put up Christmas decors. It was also my first time to put up the Christmas tree STAR! Huzzah. I also made the new layout. I like it because I was able to do it without the use of pictures… it’s also a bit cute. I don’t like it because it’s my first time to make such thing and I hate it. It’s too simple, plain and overdecorated at the same time. In short, it’s a crappy work of an amateur. I’m going to bring it back to the previous layout this Friday so enjoy it while it lasts.
And to end this post, I finally have the Rag.exe which makes dual clients possible! Thanks Dianne!

December 17, 2006

A bunch of things has happened this weekend.

First, I’m having a blog layout frenzy! I’ve just downloaded a bunch of Photoshop brushes and I’m having fun editing and playing with pictures! So far, I’ve made 8 layouts and coded already 7 of them. I’m planning to make one more before I go to bed tonight. I’m also planning to change my blog skin every 2 weeks! Wahah! Here are some previews of the stuff I’ve made.

I think I’m going to use the last one for Valentine’s Day. I’m also planning to make another one for this new year! Nakaka-adik! I hope that with a bit a lot, lot more practice, one of my skins would be placed in SOTD in blogskins someday. Wahah. I can dream, can’t I?

I wish I knew how to make template codes out of CSS. I want to switch templates in my blog as easily as this guy does, Idol ko sya! He designs a lot of cool blogs! And he can make his template change in seconds because he knows his CSS. Wahah. I also like She was the one who designed my blog layout in my tabulas.

So, back to the topic. Last Saturday was my dad’s birthday. It was also the promotion of my brother to his BLACKBELT! Wahoot! After 5 long years of training, he’s finally getting his blackbelt. We took a taxi going to the main PTA office which is beside the Philippine Sports Commission. It’s also near the LRT nearby De La Salle University. The registration was at 12nn so we were asked to go back at around 1:30. We ate lunch at Wendy’s and we waited for a long time since there were 3 batches which were ahead of my brother’s (1 batch of yellow belts and 2 batches of high browns going black). It was also hot there since we were not allowed to enter inside the center. We could only view them from outside along with the scorching heat. Gahh.

The guys from the main were pretty strict! When I was watching the previews batches, one screwed up with his forms so they were ALL asked to do push-ups *outside*. It was like what the 07 CAT officers did on their graduation but it was harder because the ground was pretty hot and they had to do push-ups with their knuckles. Yeowch! My bro’s batch did the same but they did it inside. BTW, there were also 2 blackbelts taking another promotion for a higher “dan” (proficiency level in martial arts). In the promotion, they were asked to do kicks, a lot forms (randomly chosen forms from yellow to brown belt), more kicks, self defense, a lot of kicks and sparring. It was your regular promotion… And so I thought…

After the regular sparring, the last batch had to spar again but this time, they had to spar with higher Blackbelts (not the 2). They were going wild! I was able to spar with blackbelts before but they would usually go easy on me. But I was seeing them really beating up those being promoted. Sparring was one of the last events that’s why they were already exhausted. Poor them. After that, they were asked to kick wooden blocks. Cool! It’s like what I see in demos! The 2 blackbelts were assigned 3 blocks instead. You could keep the block as a souvenir but my bro decided not to take his.

They were then dismissed and they shook hands with all the blackbelts who assisted the promotion. I thought it was all over, but I saw that none of them was leaving the room yet. Then I saw that the faciliators shut close all the windows and doors. Apparently, no one could see much what was happening. But lo and behold! A peephole… This was the fun part. The ones being promoted were now crawling between the legs of all the blackbelts and were being hit at the butt with wooden blocks. Amusing! It was some sort of initiation! There was really something unique with blackbelt promotions! So, after around 10 minutes, they were finally released. Huzzah.

We took a jeep going to Kalaw and we ate dinner at Jollibee. Our dad then left us for a party so we took another jeep going home. And, that was it. Congrats!

So, I played O2 Jam and I am now finally at Level 25! I’ve bought and downloaded 3 songs. I like the “Für Elise” the most (That’s how it’s really spelled…it’s by Beethoven–the creepy song). I’ve also got “Amadeus” and “Pit-a-Pat Summer”. I love the songs! I hope I can get to level 26 before the week ends.

I’m also 23.9% base exp in RO. 76.1 more to go and I’ll be in level 98! Lapit na! I’m going to make an old account my support priest when I level up. I hope I get to level 99 soon, then it’s the road to MasterSmith! Whahah.

Later, may outing ang Rb sa Eastwood. Yay! Finally! So far, alam kong sasama sina Tim, Rr, Andy and Joey. Grabe. Sana di sila magastos! Pero sila pa! Mga dakilang gimikera! Wahah. Good luck na lang sa akin.

I keep on saying that I’m bored. The truth is, I still have STR, Econ, Noypi and palancas to do. Okay? Wahahah. Tamad lang talaga ako!
