Dream House

I bet all of us has his own version of a dream house.

A mansion with balcony plus an olympic-sized pool inside Forbes Park? Don’t ever forget the garage.

But this is not what I actually wanted.

I have a plan (drawing) in mind but I won’t post it here. Lololol (Yeah, I have not drawn it!)

My dream home would be a Baroque-Japanese style. I still do not know how to fuse them but I would love to have the sliding door. Hahahaha! I know it is very unlikely to have a sliding door in Baroque architecture. 

Let’s skip that and go straight to ze rooms!

Of course there’d be the typical bedrooms, living room, dining area, kitchen, bathrooms. What I want are something unusual. Surreal? Nah. Maybe I watched too much of Cartoon Network’s shows.

In short, I want:

  • Library/Study – it doesn’t have to be as huge as that in Beast’s castle in Beauty and the Beast. I just want to have a decent shelves for my beloved books.
  • Laboratory – because I envy Dexter’s huge lab.
  • Toy Room – dedicated to my toy collection!
  • Karaoke Room – I spent too much lunch money for KTV’s at Metrowalk and Karaoke Hub in SM Manila. So I want one.
  • Theater – a projector plus white wall plus very comfy couch. And a bunch of external HDDs. 
  • Onsen – I am not fond of pools. I would design it as closely as that in Japan.
  • Studio – for my crafts, invetions and stuffs.

So this is what I pictured to have when I finally settle down. Huehuehue. Probably I would just revamp the future existing house we’d have. 

Me and Tarot Reading

Out of sheer curiosity, Catherine and I queued for the most popular stall at the BDJ Fair, tarot reading. The stall always had the longest line.

I really don’t believe in forecasting. However, it was fun hearing your “future” from forecasters.

It’s my turn now. 

The forecaster was handsome. Really, really handsome. But, man, he likes men, too. That aside, he shuffled the cards and told me to divide the deck into four. 

He glanced at the cards and told me (1) I was a hopeless romantic. *stabs*; (2) has work related problems right now *mukya!*; (3) has great chance of being overseas; and (4) two job offers will come and I have to choose one that’s better because it would be the growth of my career.

He also told me that I had low confidence. I just have to pump it up to achieve the goals I’ve set. He said I had a business plan in mind that never came true because of my low self-confidence.

Next, he asked me to ask him a question.

I was actually surprised. I thought he’ll just lay it out for me. My, bad. 

Anyway!

Nonverbatim

Me: Yayaman po ba ako? (Lols)

Forecaster: Four cards. 

Me: (I picked four cards from the deck.) 

F: You will. But may tutulong sa iyo. Lalaki.  

Me: (Really? This creature? A man will help?) Paano ko po siya makikilala?

F: Four cards. 

Me: No, no! Ibang tanong na lang. Uh, uhm, *think!!!* Mapu-fulfill ko ba Ph. D. (or master’s degree) ko?

F: Four cards. *me picks 4* Yes, you will. May mga makakasama ka. It might be abroad. Money’s not an issue. You just have to finish it. Next question. 

Me: (Wala na akong maisip. Ugh. ‘Kay fine. Yung classic na tanong na lang.) Uh, yung true love ko po? Uh, paano ko siya makikilala? Description. Ganon.

F: Four cards. *I pick four.* Bagong company. Boss level. He’s the one who will help you I mentioned earlier.*leans over the next table where Catherine is* Teh, ‘di ba lalaki ito? Boss level. 

Forecaster 2: Oo, teh. Tama. *looks at me* Boss nga. Siya na nga yung The One. 

F: *shows me the King card*

Me: (I was baffled. Surprised. I had someone in mind. Shoot. Not him.) Nakilala ko na po ba siya? Paano kami nagkakilala?

F: Bagong company. Mabilis yung mga pangyayari so watch out. It might be within two years. Basta mabilis. Girl, baka ‘di ka maniwala sa mga sinabi ko ah. But those are accurate. Lakasan mo lang loob mo. You can do it. ^^

I was actually smiling when I left the table. Especially dun sa yayaman na part. Lols.

We will see if any, or all, of them comes true. 

The Late-Night Post: Childhood Friends

In every romance story I read or watch, the element that never fails to make my heart go doki doki is that the hero and heroine are childhood friends.

Yes, I am a sucker for childhood-friends theme!

Maybe because we often change neighborhoods so I never got the chance to have my dream childhood friends romance. Not like I experience any kind of real romance though. *cries in a corner*

It’s just that. It’s flawless IMO.

Look. You’ve known each other since you were kids. So you know each other’s family. You can barge in each other’s room. You know each other’s quirks. Something like that.

Perfect examples are Special A, Last Game, Kakao 79%, and my current favorite, Wotaku ni Koii wa Muzukashii.

Well, out of whim, I told my best friends to live next each other and have my son/daughter be best friends with her daughter/son in the future and see it unfold. Hahaha

Shorts: Entry 17 – SNS

I wanna work.

Scratch that.

I need money. I want to expand my knowledge.

Seriously, it is ridiculous how my world momentarily stopped expanding because I still anxiously am waiting for those endless job application interviews.

It is frustrating seeing my peers posting their “accomplishments” in social media. It bears envy.

Like every teenager who frequents in Starbucks just to take a photo of her frappuccino and upload it to social media to show the world they are an elite, it feels like bragging rights. There’s nothing to see.

That’s why I temporarily stopped browsing SNS.

Meh. Who cares?

Shorts: Entry 15

Months ago, due to my envy towards my friends having someone to spend Christmas and Valentine’s with, or simply having treat them somewhere nice – In short, a boyfriend – I posted here in a Late-Night Post that I want one.

Now I don’t.

I realized I don’t need one.

I just need my 2D boyfriends with me and I’ll be fine. Manga and Anime ftw! Nyahahaha!

Oi! Your otaku spirit’s takin’ ya over, Cye-kun! Get a hold of yarself! Ya’ll be free of your hikkikomori (shut-in) lifestyle soon! Get a work!
