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. 

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!

The Late-Night Post: Entry 12 – Ninja Cutting Onions!

Lately, all I do is cry at manga and anime. Not those drama shoujo or josei ones but SHOUNEN! Not just shounen, but mainstream shounen!

I’ve read Naruto and Gintama. I just watched the anime Gintama covering the Shogun Assassination Arc before I write this post. But meh. Hahaha!

SPOILERS AHEAD! IF YOU’RE UPDATED IN THE MANGA, GO AHEAD!

In Naruto, I cried at:

1. Jiraiya-sensei’s death

2. Itachi’s death and his tragic past

3. Minato’s meeting with Naruto whilst showing 8 tails

4. Kushina’s death while telling baby Naruto her final words

5. From Naruto: Road to Ninja, Naruto yearning to meet his family

6. From The Last: Naruto the Movie, Hinata and Naruto’s wedding!

7. Of course, Iruka-sensei’s acknowledgment of Naruto as Konohagakure’s shinobi
In Gintama, there were lots of it while you least expect it because of its gags. Since I basically grew up while reading and watching it, I’ll just list the latest arc I’ve watched.

In the Shogun Assassination Arc, we’ve seen the old jouishishi war in which Gintoki, Takasugi, Katsura and Sakamoto participated. The three captured except Sakamoto who’s recuperating. Gintoki was forced to kill Shouyo-sensei in front of his friends, Takasugi and Katsura. Shouyo-sensei managed to say Gintoki his final words, “Thank you.”

At the end of the arc, when the war (present) was over, Shou-chan went to Kyo to build a new era that will benefit his citizens. At Kyo, he was poisoned by an old friend. His final moments were having Soyo-chan’s tea made for him and resting on her lap while the unsuspecting Soyo-chan stroke his head.

Yep. It was sad. Well, please ignore me. Hahaha. I am just reduced to a NEET now and my stories shared in my blog are mostly what NEETs and hikkikomori do–anime, manga, gaming.

Buuuut! I’ll cover what I did these past 7 months on my future posts. Hehehe! Ja!

Ozine Forum Members

Hay, base sa experience ko sa foruming, sa kahit ano, e mahirap makisama, lalo na kung wala ka talagang kakilala doon and international pa sinalihan mo, like me. Sa unang mga linggo ng pagiging active, around March yon, e patay ka, OP ka. Haha! Totoo iyon, nahirapan ako maki-join sa kanilang “family.” I think most of them are really friends in reality from the beginning like such and such. Kaya most e hindi mo gets talaga ang pinag-uusapan nila. But as time fleets, nakakaintindi na rin ako. Syempre, through “hard work” ko na-earn ang “reputation points” na nakuha ko. Dahil sa YM e nagkakausap talaga kami ng members.

As for this post, ilalagay ko ang “moments” or “description” o anuman ang nais mong itawag riyan! Basta iyon na iyon, oks?

Alyssa – Isang bagong forumer na lumitaw noong May 1… Basta iyon na iyon. She’s a 12-year old kid that time and conscious about it. Kasi nga naman puro 15 and above ang nandon! She’s an artist and won the drawing contest (sa age group niya syeperds) sa Ozine Fest! Haha! Don’t get me wrong, she acts mature! She’s a former president of their section!

Ryoma_Andres – Isa pang baguhan, pero adik… Mas adik pa sa akin. Nakaka-800 posts na siya at mataas ang reputation points niya and acts maturely pero, guess what, he’s just a year older than Alyssa. It really did surprise me! Mas mature pa siya mag-isip sa akin! Akala ko kaedad na ng veterans at editors e! Haha! Well, I’m kinda immature.

AbielPaltao – Isang “veteran” ng ozine. Dakilang adik na maitatawag. Yes, he’s an Ozine forumer, but, guess what, he doesn’t own any Ozine issues. Surprised? Kasi most members e me Ozine, mga collectors rin. He has a figma and nendroid collection na nakaka-cardiac arrest ang presyo… Ang pinakamura lang naman e PhP1.5K… Pinakamahal ata e umabot na ng 10K ata. Ang mura ano? Mapapamura ka sa mahal! Ang yaman! Hanep! Haha! Mapapanganga ka talaga sa yaman e, pero ayon sa kanya he’s in debt because of his collection. Sa Japan pa talaga galing iyon tas idedeliver sa kanya. Pero sabi niya, mahirap lang raw siya, nonetheless I don’t believe it. Magaling sa chess at math. Masarap kausap iyan, kasi nahahalingan ko ng kaabnuan ko, like the “9-yr” joke. Sabi ko sa kanya 9 years ang tanda niya sa akin, but in reality, 9 months lang. Haha!

sweet0kaye – Isa pang “veteran.” Nagkakasundo kami sa mga chikahan tungkol sa bishies. Most girls like bishonen! Pati na rin ang “pagplano” sa paparating ng Ozine Fest.. Na hindi ko madalas mapuntahan dahil sa hectic sched. She calls me “Ate Cye.”

_c0n* – (tama kaya ang pagkakatype ko ng username? haha!) Isang, well, muntik nang maging veteran. Haha! Straightforward guy, I should say. Hanep talaga. Kay galing sa Inggles! Mapapanganga ka talaga, lalo na noong isang beses sa manga section sa Ozine Forum! Basta me thread starter doon na pinrangka niya e. Grabe, it was entertainment! Ang mga gusto kong sabihin sa thread starter na hindi ko masabi e nasabi na niya! Really remarkable. What’s also making him remarkable for me was him being a notorious exorbitant user of punctuation marks. Hehe. To date, siya ang binigyan ko ng oddest nickname I could give, next is Trixy. Masayang kausap iyan, mas abnu sa akin ng isang paligo. Haha! Me mga bagay talaga na hindi ko magawa na siya lang ang gumagawa e!

xiantasuki – Isang veteran. Adik rin ito e… Parang si kaye, pero hindi “bishies” ang pinag-uusapan namin, pramis! Haha! About anime, cons, manga, cosplay and such ang pinaguusapan namin. “Ate” rin ang tawag niya sa akin like Kaye, since he’s a year younger than me. Twing me paparating na con e magiiwan ng message sa akin iyan sa Twitter.

—Well, these guys are really remarkable for me. Hope I could meet them soon!

Ozine Forum

Nabanggit ko na mahilig ako sa anime. In fact, I am a forumer… sa MangaTraders.com, BleachAnime.org, OneManga.com, and Ozine Forum… It’s been a year since it’s down. Hindi ko alam kung bakit, masaya pa naman doon.
*Kasalukuyang nasa writer’s block ang author, pagpasensyahan mo na…*

Ginawa ko ang aking Ozine account noong February 5, 2009. Tas, dahil wala pa kaming PC sa bahay noon, pabugsu-bugso ang aking pag-post. Sa totoo lang, ito e ang aking unang forum na sinalihan isang taon matapos ma-ban sa BleachAnime.org (tahimik!) dahil sa walang kwentang dahilan.

Naging active ako noong March… Salamat sa Opera Mini na ipinagbigay-alam sa akin ni KP. Nagsimula na ako magkaroon ng mga kakilala like Louisse and her cousin Lani, pero sa Friendster ko sila nakilala, uso pa ang fs noon. Tas noong April-March rin, nagkaroon pa ng mas maraming friends, namely Abiel-niisan, Kaye, Manong Con, Xian, Alyssa, at marami pang iba!

Sa forum, me mga natututuhan ako, like kung saan sila bumibili ng anime DVDs, cosplay paraphernalia and the like. Pati ang mga ek-ek na HTML tags sa foruming e natutuhan ko.

But on May 28, 2009, birthday of Abiel and Fumino-san… It was… It was… DOWN. I still remembered what my last post was: DAILY ATTENDANCE pa!

To date, I, I mean we, still hope, bumalik na ang forum.

otakuzine

Otakuzine Anime Magazine… I never knew something like that existed in the Philippines until my Manga and Anime Partner (MAP), Leslee, showed me, during our second year days, an anime magazine and on the cover was Haruhi Suzumiya. If you’re an otaku like me and buys Ozine, then you know exactly what issue number i was talking about. Yes, it was Otakuzine Number 14.

She lent me it since we were best friends. I read it overnight. I discovered Ouran High and Haruhi Suzumiya. But I haven’t watched Haruhi. Ever since MAP-chan lent it to me, it became one of my addictions. I bought every issue I saw at National Bookstore, Walter Mart Gapan. Although i didn’t discover it earlier, I was happy I did. Thanks to MAP-chan! Daisuki dayo, MAP!

But, there’s a big but! Yes, it gave me pleasure whenever I read it. I’m not a liar. Some of the issues, well, have typo errors or sometimes, wrong information regarding, say, the character. Sometimes also, it repeats the same article or content like what happened on issue 44. It reiterated the same content from the previous issue. I expected it to contain info about my favorite anime Jigoku Shoujo. Too bad it was replaced by the same article from its predecessor. *sighs*

But thanks to Otakuzine, I was able to greet my dearest friends. Thanks to their Aisatsu Corner section. My names, our names, was published 2 times, I guess. But my name was published 4 times, thanks to Lyndon-niisan who greeted me (issue 39, I think).

I submitted drawings of mine there last month, I suppose. I’m looking forward to seeing my work published just like Nii-san and Manong.

the plushies!

Part ng pagiging otaku (or ng super otaku) ang pag-collect ng anime stuffs like costumes, plushies, DVDs, manga and the like. Well, I collect Anime DVDs and some manga (mahal ang manga, dude!) and recently, plushies.

Yes, you read it right, plushies! Matagal na akong naghahanap ng Kon plushie sa Comic Alley. Sa twing nagpupunta ako doon, puro si Mokona (Tsubasa Chronicles) lang ang nandoon. T^T
Pag nagtatanong naman ako sa salesperson, sabi wala raw. E paano ko masisimulan ang plushie collection ko?

Tas I had this friend, itago na lang natin siya sa pangalang “Manong.” Sabi niya me nagtitinda raw sa kanila ng Kon plushie!!! >_< P150 raw! E normally ang isang plushie e mga 400-500 Pesos! Astig naman oh! Tas ayun, binili niya. Akin na lang raw. Yay! I was so elated back then! Pero may problema, anlayo niya!!! E paano ko makukuha si Kon? Hehe.

Natutuwa ako pag kinukwento niya na kinakausap niya raw si Kon or me photoshoot sila tas nilagyan pa ng "CON" sa pwet si Kon, tas pag natutulog sila e nadadaganan na siya! In fact he was his best friend. Ang masama nga lang, isang malaking tragedy sa buhay ni Kon, natanggalan siya ng fur sa buntot niya, gawa ng pamangkin ni Manong. Kawawang bata.

And minsan tinetext ko, si Kon. Haha! Sabi ko recently, pag inaaway siya, batuhin niya lang ng sapatos si Manong. Haha! Naging "emo" raw si Kon simula nung natanggal ang buntot niya. (Am I right?)

Then nung nag-college ako, since malapit lang ang school sa SM Manila, lagi akong nags-stroll roon para magpalamig. Haha! And to read books at National Bookstore without being caught or scolded by the salesperson! Masaya iyon! Haha! Iyong huli ko pang muntikan nang matapos basahin e Otakuzine 50, si Kamina and Simon pa ang cover, my favorite characters! *off-topic*
*back to topic* Tas umakyat ako sa 2nd floor, andoon kasi ang Tokyo Kids ayon sa Directory ng SM. I assumed it was an otaku store. Tas makita ko na lang, walang Tokyo Kids na nage-exist, yet COMIC ALLEY ang nakita ko! Ansaya-saya ko nun! Tas nag-reunion kami ng keychains, Death Note, and the most important of all, PLUSHIES! Andami! Variety siya, me Mokona, Chopper Hollow Ichigo, Miku Hatsune, Mio, Yui, and KON!!!!

Tas nung ilang araw makalipas, bumalik ako ng SM, Monday noon, tas binili ko ung KON plushie roon and named him KONKON. Me nagmamay-ari na kasi ng KON, ung plushie na na ke Manong. Naka-red cape siya.

I love glomping, cuddling and squeezing him! Ganun rin siguro ang gagawin ko kay KON. Tutal magkakambal naman sila si KONKON. Haha!

Another target buy: ICHIGO, RUKIA and L PLUSHIE!!!
