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.


Random tidbits

February 2, 2007

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.

So that’s it I guess.


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 😦

Not too late

January 2, 2007

I guess it’s not too late for another post. Don’t worry, it’s a short, quick and informal one.
Nakalaro ulit ako ng O2 Jam. Saya! Pero parang naging bano ako. Dalawang linggo na ako di nakapaglaro eh. Hahah. Level 25 pa ako. Anyways, wala pang nagtatag. Tama nga ang isang nagsabi na kaunti yung nagtatag pag navi-type skin mo. Nakakalungkot.

Tapos, I’ve been bloghopping to other sides of the net and I stumbled at She stopped updating but I found her last post about some cell phone quotes she received quite amusing. Here’s one of them. I’m sure some of you guys have already read this.
Hidden meaning behind Pinoy expressions..
“MWAH” – i ♥ You
“LA LANG” – miss na kita
“BAHALA KA!” – seryoso ako
“YNGAT KA LAGI” – mahalaga ka saken!
“MUSTA NA?” – namiss mo ako?
“BAGAY KAYO” – mas bagay tayo!
“SECRET” – oo, ikaw!
“MAY PROBLEM?” – dito lang ako
“KAYO PA RIN BA?” – sana tayo naman
“GRABE HA!” – selos ako
“BUSY KA BA?” – usap naman tayo

Hahah. Natuwa ako kasi sobrang tinatamaan ako dito. Naman kasi…
I know I should always avoid this subject and shouldn’t say this but I miss my crush na. Hahah. Babaw, ampotek. Oks lang yan. Makikita ko naman sya bukas. ^_^
Okay. I guess this is all I have to say. What a complete waste of time. Harhar.

Pre Christmas Post

December 25, 2006

Here are the reasons on why it’s just now that I’m going to post again. Take note that my thoughts on the following events are the ones I’ve felt and thought on the very day it occured. Uhm… Let’s just say that I’ve written these posts on the day that they’ve happened and I just compiled them all in this post.

1. Ragnarok Online Modified EXP. Yes! Level-up-games has granted my Christmas wish to have a 3x modified EXP. It started last Wednesday, December 20. I’m going to try to make my Blacksmith reach level 98 by this week. Oh I really hope that I can make it! I’m also trying out to get the “Angel’s Blessing” headgear. You get this item by doing an RO style Simbang Gabi by going to the Prontera Chapel from 7-11 PM for 14 days straight (From December 17-31). My knight’s trying this out and so far I’m doing well. I just have a problem on the last day since my family’s heading to Paranaque for New Year’s Eve. Wah. 😦

2. AHS Mass/Program/Salu-salo. My brother had his last day of school at December 20. My mom and I went to Ateneo to accompany him. We planned to attend the Holy Mass at 4 PM but we had a hard time getting a taxi so we were late for the mass. After the mass, I observed the venue (AHS covered courts) and just noticed how big the place was. Then I recalled that each batch had around 600 students, so that was around 2400 students in the whole high school community. Then add the parents, faculty, friends and the other people and you have a whole bunch of people. Wala lang. I’m not used to that much people cramped in a school venue. So, back to the topic, there was a program that followed the mass. The students, faculty and staff presented dance and song numbers. It was pretty nice to watch it though I don’t know any of the people there. It reminded me of similar events in Pisay where I could see teachers work it out on the center stage. After that, each class had to go back to their respective classrooms for a salu-salo. Not much happened in the 2-I class. The food was great though. The class also had a sing-a-long and the one who would get the highest point would get an SM 500-peso gift cheque. We left early since my mom was getting sleepy.

3. DOTA. Huzzah! My brother was able to borrow a DOTA CD from his classmate (from the party I suppose) so it’s now on our PC. Yay! I really have fun playing though I always get creamed. I like using the Alchemist (I forgot his name) and Lina Inverse the Slayer. The game’s pretty addictive. I do hope I get better.

4. Blogskins. I spend my time now giving out comments, ratings and green flags. For those who want instant greenies and 5 stars, I’m your person. Just make sure that you and your skins are DECENT. I’m not that fussy in rating skins. But don’t think I’m a nice person. I also give reds and poor ratings to those who deserve them. And another thing… just make sure that you don’t know me personally if you want me to rate. No offense to strawbess (she’s an exception since she’s a nice person) but I REALLY, REALLY HATE PEOPLE WHO ASKS THEIR FRIENDS to make accounts to simply raise their ratings. That is just unfair, wrong AND A SIGN OF DESPERATION . EARN THE 5 STARS FAIRLY YOU JERKS! There.

5. Okasan’s Christmas Shopping. I can assume that you know what okasan means once I explain. My okasan went to SM to get gifts for her godchildren. She asked me for suggestions on where to buy gifts. She told me that one of them wanted something Cartoon Network-ish like Power Rangers and Pokemon (Ah, childhood memories XP) so I suggested that she go to Comic Alley for Pokemon merchandise. When she came back, she had toys, pillows and shirts with her. Then she showed me the Pokemon figurines she bought. Cmon. I don’t remember any of the characters that she bought asides from Pikachu. Then she began sharing about the prices of this-and-that items and she told me about the biggest Mokona Modoki stuffed toy which costs 1280 (like I didn’t know that… XP) and the other posters of this-and-that anime and how cheaper the Pokemon plushies are compared to the Tsubasa Chronicle ones. I could’ve sworn that she would give me a Pokemon or another Mokona stuffed toy for Christmas. Wahah. On the following day, she shopped some more and came home with incredibly huge wrapped boxes and paper bags. Woah. Para kanino kaya yan?

6. More RO. Due to the 3x EXP, my brother decided to make a sage. He managed to MANUALLY make one in 3 days (or 24 hours in total, yes we counted how long) which got to Job Level 50. More geographers then.

7. Unproductivity and boredom. Well if you’ve noticed, I’m really unproductive for this week. I only do constructive stuff in my online and gaming life but asides from that, I’m practically useless, idle and unfruitful. If you remove the PC from my Christmas break, I’d die of boredom.

8. Trip to Paranaque. Last Suday (December 24) my family went to Paranaque to have mass and lunch. We met at our lola’s house and went to mass at 10:30. We ate lunch at Pancake House in Bicutan. It’s located at Brittany Bay at the Express Road near the Sucat Tollgate. I recommend the variety of restos/cafes there. I also suggest that you go there at night and eat outside since the view’s nice, atmosphere’s soothing, it’s windy and spacey and there’s usually a live band performing. It’s such a lovely place. So going back, after lunch, we went back to lola’s house and opened our gifts. Yay! MP3 PLAYER AT LAST! Thanks! We also opened my lola’s balikbayan box which finally arrived from the States last week. It was just bunch of clothes I took no interest in. What caught my eye however was a 74-piece make-up set. I love it! Its so pink, neat, lovely and girly. I don’t like make-up though but I really wanted that for myself. My mom didn’t permit me since I don’t use make-up. She said to reserve in the future for a debutante. Cmon. 3 years to go! So after that, we went back at home at around 6:30 PM.

So this is what happened on the week before Christmas. My next post would be a short one on what has happened today this Christmas. Maligayang Pasko!

Teh weakdne

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!

Level 97 and Gourdcore

December 9, 2006
Because some of my classmates decided to go back to playing RO, I had this urge to go back as well. So here I am now. My blacksmith just turned level 97 and I’m expecting to turn 98 before next year. I know that my dream of becoming 99 within this year won’t come true unless that Level Up Games gives the RO a whole month of modified EXP.

When I also came back to RO, I noticed that they were trading LU-load for various in-game headgears. The first thought that came to my mind was to make zeny out of these. My plan was to buy load, get the headgears and sell them for zeny. I only had 5M with me left and I couldn’t find it in my heart to sell my spare items due to the deflation. However, I was unsure to do what I had planned because the items weren’t really that in demand and the ones who did try to sell the headgears sold them at a very low price.

After a week, I found a new announcement that the GMs were going to trade an Angeling headgear for a +7 Laurel Wreath (one of the headgears being traded for laod). My hopes went high once again since I thought that the demand for Laurel Wreaths would increase due to that event. I could get 17-20M for each one that I sell! The thought was just so euphoric!

Then, in school, I listened to a conversation that my other classmates had. One pointed out that LUG was taking advantage over the players by trading those headgears for cash. They were making huge profits because of that. He also gave a funny thought about the players who did try making those +7 Laurel Wreaths. When an over-upgrading fails, it’s just like saying that you threw away a hundred bucks. Those players are so lavish! Another classmate said that LUG weren’t contented with the earnings they have because of bots. Maybe they were trying to do a “legal” way of getting cash out of players. Well, that’s the corrupt world of RO.

On the other side of the world, my O2 jam works already! About a week ago, it keeps on getting a message that it won’t connect to the server. But now, it works snazzily! I hope I get to level 25 already. My next mission is at around level 27 where I have to do a level 12 song with less than 10 misses. Good luck to me then!

On another other side of the world… XD
I finally got my gourdcore trophy in KOL. It took me 45 days to do so (but I could’ve done it in fewer days). I’m still pondering if I should get the Golden Meat Stack Trophy. That would be pretty challenging and long. I swear that if I get out of hardcore, I’m never going back there again! XP I’m already at level 8 and yet I haven’t done most of the quests. It’s pretty hard if you’re a myst class. Asides from that… It’s Crimboween! My multis are already farming for the event items. I hope that the mafia gets the Crimboween version all set before Christmas eve!

Well. That’s all for my gaming life. And as a final note, I hope I get better at DOTA! Haha…^^
