So far, this is my second visit to the MIBF (second day and second time… my first time was last year hehehehehe).
On the fist day, I saw this–Raissa Robles’s book, “Marcos Martial Law: Never Again.”
My take: Wow. The Philippines plunged into foregin debt is because Marcos didn’t pay the debts on time–not because they STOLE money from the Filipino people.
…so if you are anti-Marcos, then this is a good read for you.
Finally got the best-selling book, “Why Nations Fail.” I recommend you this book (initial comments).
Art haul from National Bookstore booth. (:
Are you thinking what I’m thinking? (:
Best Christmas gift for the photographer.
Don’t go if you’re broke. Get good reads.
Guten Abend! Ich bin fertig fur Brief schreiben — ja, ich suche fur Brieffreunden. LOL.
Pardon me if I’m not that good in German yet — maybe you’ll hear me say, “Ach, es ist 8 Uhr! Ich muss froh sein!”
Not being too much of a Europhile, but anyways, I have read this counter-argument against F. Sionil Jose (OH MAN! You must be crazy!).
asianform.com|The Chinese character for “death.”
I believe, F. Sionil Jose’s view on the Chinese people is merely a sign of xenophobia. Well, not so.
Of course, that also means that having white skin doesn’t make you a “wannabe white person.” This also means that being “dark” or “tanned” for the white people doesn’t really make them wannabe Latinos.
Granted, the Chinese are said to be rude (check out these profit-oriented shops in Beijing, Singapore and HK!) and profit-oriented, but elite Chinese people won’t ever patronize cheap, low-quality China-made stuff. Also, being Chinese doesn’t even make you filthy rich or traditional, or even speak Fukkien at all!
Generalizing the Filipino-Chinese community as “exploiting foreigners” does not make you a patriot at all. In fact, “ethnicism” isn’t going to make you more than patriotic.
Paraphrasing Kenneth Duncan,
Filipinos of Chinese descent are sent to Chinese schools to learn more about their heritage, but there’s no such intention of being loyal to the country of their ancestors which they’re not really familiar with. Not all Filipino-Chinese can afford to study in a special language school, and there’s nothing wrong with Chinese schools — in fact, countries like Indonesia are supporting and promoting them!
Correct, and the fact that the Chinoys send back their remittances to China, Taiwan or Hong Kong isn’t (that) true after all. Kenneth Duncan stated that these Chinoys can hardly trace back their ancestral roots in the Sinosphere, which is quite true — after all, famous Filipinos who bear a Chinese surname, pure Chinese or of mixed ancestry — are apparently more loyal to the Philippines and they choose to stay here to grow their businesses. Now what’s wrong with that, right?
Some wealthy Chinese people even marry Filipinas of native or mestizo/mestiza descent and let their children roam around in a Filipino environment — famous Ateneans such as Tricia Gosingtian may be half-Chinese, but they’re Filipino on the inside. They even promote their styles and works of art in representation of the Philippines and NOT the Sinosphere. They cannot even speak Fukkien at all. As a matter of fact, these wealthy Chinoys are actually more Filipino than Chinese.
To Lieber Herr Jose,
I think it’s time for you to re-think your path as a writer. Degrading the Filipino-Chinese community does not help the nation prosper in any way. In fact, being against the Chinese in the Philippines does not make you even moooooore patriotic. Granted, some Chinoys are really hardcore Sinophiles, but that’s the way for then to preserve their culture. There won’t be such thing as Chinese New Year, hopia, siomai, siopao, noodles, Peking duck, paputok, F4, Meteor Garden, Acer, Asus, Lenovo, Huawei or anything Chinese if you’re only going to say that.
If China or the concept of “Sina” never existed, there would be no Kanji or Confucianism at all. What makes family bond together in East Asia is the Confucian belief of valuing family. However, being family-oriented is very Asian, which you don’t even see in most Western countries. Countries such as Italy, Germany, Australia and Canada are best examples of Western places that practice the value of family, even the United States is trying to promote family values as a payback to the people’s choice. If your folks taught you not to love the other races of people around you, think again. If you were educated at public schools, then they must have taught you the essence of embracing and mingling with people of different backgrounds. If you are half-Chinese or half-white, Filipinos around you are expected to err, mingle with you and consider you as their own, rather than letting you feel that you’re different. The funny thing is, half-white people who absolutely have NO trace of Filipino features will be worshipped and hailed as a “god/goddess.”
I also wanted to learn Mandarin when the Taiwanese F4 made it to the Philippines. Even Vic Zhou only speaks Mandarin and Fukkien at the same, at mas lalo pa nga si Jerry Yan, eh! After all, you don’t need to be a Chinoy to study in a Chinese school.
Kung tutuusin pa nga, CCTV (China Central Television) is already provided when you subscribe to SkyCable, Home Cable, Sun Cable, Destiny, and many more. CCTV is also in HD quality and at the same time, it offers programs besides Chinese — English, Arabic and Russian, to name a few.
CCTV in Russian|Her Russian is even better than Sharapova’s!
CCTV in Arabic|This Chinese dude still managed that sexy voice!
CCTV English|Australian English at its finest!
Side note: Give me a German version this time, please!
Alongside Deutsche Welle, NHK, KBS World and Australia channel, you don’t need to pay extra bucks to subscribe to those channels. Can TFC err… do that!? I don’t think so… I also have doubts with GMA PinoyTV if they could make it overseas without paying extra bucks for subscription.
These channels are very influential and they prove that they’re really wealthy enough to spread the word without even being paid for exclusive purposes. HAHA!
With regards to CCTV itself, their programs are of course, in Mandarin Chinese. YES — with regards to Putonghua, it’s the most melodic of all the languages of China. How melodic? Well, Chinese women speaking the language are really refined and they really communicate with finesse. Also, most Taiwanese people speak Mandarin, alongside with their native Taiwanese Fukkien. Since Mandarin is only composed of four tones, it’s not that hard at all when you master the language (unlike Fukkien and Cantonese, which has eight and six tones, respectively).
Now I really do understand you, Herr Jose for switching to Mandarin after you learned Cantonese. Surely, Cantonese is much more difficult because of the six tones, but don’t you know that it came first before Mandarin? Yes, Cantonese may be first before Mandarin, but Yue (other term for Cantonese) is also an official language in Hong Kong. I also believe that it is also spoken in most parts of Guangdong, particularly Shenzhen and Guangzhou. Even Jackie Chan’s accent is obviously Cantonese, and it seems that he’s even more comfortable in speaking Cantonese than Mandarin (his Putonghua has a hint of Cantonese accent as well, too bad). However, China’s government puts importance on Mandarin over the other languages of China is because of its rich tones and ease of use. You’ll feel yoga, Buddhism and a calm aura when an old woman speaks the language. After all, the Chinese language is almost everything — from the food that you eat, from the tea that you drink towards their rich cultural heritage.
Despite the controversies surrounding China, it is still a mysterious place, despite its pollution in the cities. Also, the Sinosphere does not forget to turn back to its rich cultural history, despite being modernized.
I am not a China expert
…but this might help me a lot since I’m going to tackle about trade relations between China… and guess what the other camp is!
Si Pete G. Ampoloquio, Jr., ay isang manunulat/kolumnista sa Remate.ph, isang tabloid-like website na kung saan maraming mga nakakaaliw na articles na mae-enjoy ninyo… KUNG ang nagsulat nun ay no other than Ka Pete!
Kalurkey naman, oh! Lagi niya talagang pinag-iinitan si Tita Cristy Fermin na super hate ni Tita Bisaya! HAHAHAHA!
S’yempre, hindi niyo siya ma-type-an kung mababasa niyo ang mga hinanakit niya laban ke Tita Cristy at syempre naman kay Marian Rivera. Pero kung mababasa niyo ang mga hinanakit niya laban kay no other than the pambansang prostitot ng Pilipinas na si Cristine Reyes, maaaliw talaga kayo sa kanya! PROMISE!
Bakit sa Remate pa? Hindi ba tabloid-ish ‘yun?
Sa Remate naman kasi, dun ko naman nakilala si Leonore Rolle, isang avid hater ni CR. Hindi man siya perpektong tao, ngunit alam niya kung gaano ka despise-able si AA. Oo, AA’s character speaks for her reputation. Hindi niyo lang talaga kayang tanggapin na kung sino pa ang nagde-declare na prangka’t palaban sila, ‘yun pa ang hindi umaamin sa kanilang mga retoke!
Kalurkey, ende vah?
Si Ka Pete rin kasi, hindi niya rin type si Maja, kaya dun ko rin siya nagustuhan. S’yempre, si Maja, kahit mahusay siyang artista, malaki ang ulo. Kaya simula nung wala na siyang issue, KONTI na lang ‘yung mga project niya.
Right, Chris Tiu?
Unkabogable Lines ni Ka Pete: Maaliw Naman Kayo D’yan!
Teleserye nina Cristine, Piolo wala nang dating: Walang Hanggan nina Coco, Julia panalo!
MARAMI ang nagtataka kung bakit ang promise ng soap nina Piolo Pascual at Cristine Reyes ay ‘di na nag-materialize when it used to be one of the hottest soaps at ABS-CBN when it started barely a month ago.
Simple lang, it’s not Piolo’s fault dahil behaved naman siya at wala namang ginagawang nega na makaaapekto sa soap nila.
Ang dapat sisihin ay ang lead actress dito na oo nga’t mahusay naman sanang umarte pero nagpakademonya kaya tigbakers tuloy ang arrive ng kanilang soap opera.
Kung hataw to-the-max ang Walang Hanggan nina Coco Martin at Julia Montes, parang sisinghap-singhap na ang teevee series nina Piolo at Cristine at mukhang wala nang nanonood. Hahahahahahahaha!
That’s what you get for being so mean and uncouth, dara. Hahahahahaha! Kung bakit kasi pati press ay sinasali mo sa pangbabalahura mo sa ‘yong ina’t kapatid.
Ang ending, lahat sila ay kumampi kay Ara at wala ni isang nagtanggol sa ‘yo. Hahahahahahahaha!
Poor delusory girl, where would you go now?
Hindi kaya pati panghulog sa mansion mo sa Paranaque ay ma-delay? Hahahahahahahaha!
Anyway, pati pala PA ng retokadang glorified starlet na ‘to ay pinalayas niya dahil pinagbintangang nagnakaw supposedly ng kanyang singsing nu’ng time na magkasakit siya at ang PA lang ang dumaramay at nag-aalaga sa kanya.
Hurting daw talaga ang PA dahil sa tinagal-tagal nilang nagsama ng butangerang starlet, ngayon pa raw ba siya gagawa nang ganon?
Anyhow, to make a long story short, na-misplace lang pala ng kati-katerang glorified starlet ang ring na nawawala kuning-kuning. Hahahahahaha!
Too late the hero, the PA has already left her employ.
We just don’t know the latest development if she has been cajoled to go back or if she did make true of her promise to leave for keeps.
Baka naman dahil labs naman daw talaga nito si Bungangerang Retokada na sandamakmak ang yosi-kadiring cellulite ay nagoyong muling magbalik. Hahahahahahahahaha!
Me Take: HAHAHAHA, oo naman! Agree naman ako ‘dong, na si AA naman talaga ang DAHILAN kung bakit FLOP ang DSP. HAHAHA, ganyan talaga kapag isang cheap-ass ang sinali sa DSP. Maganda sana ang DSP, pero panira lang si AA, eh. HALATANG PA-KYUT lang ang acting niya. Not cool (enough).
Alam mo kasi AA, umayos ka na nga! Hangga’t hindi ka pa nagpapa-retoke ng ugali mo, s’yempre naman, maraming susunod sa mga yapak mong… EWW! Tinapakan ng shit? LOL!
Dumi na sa paningin ng publiko!
[This time, from HatawTabloid.OrphicPixel.com naman ito.]
Hahahahahahaha! Dahil sa kamalditahan at kababuyan, mukhang sa kangkungan pupulutin ang career nitong si Cristine Reyes.
Sa true, baboy sa dilang baboy ang pag-uugali ng monster na babaeng ito na infested with yosi-kadiring cellulites ang mga hita. Hahahahahahahaha!
Imagine, after all the loving and the caring that her sister Are Mina had given her, she (diabolical Cristine) still has the temerity to accuse her sister of some horrible doings.
This woman is indeed a blight!
She deserves to rot in hell if ever such place truly exists!
Grabe talaga ang nagawa ng show business sa babaeng ito na untakable talaga ang barubal na pag-uugali.
Siguro, sila ni Marianita Kuflangga, ang guranggang asal-matrona (‘di ba naman mukhang andang tabatsina? Hahahahaha!) ang dapat na pagtapatin dahil close fight ang kanilang evil persona. Hahahahahahaha!
Did I hit the nail right on its head, obese na matronang priority pala-palagi ang anda? Hahahahahahaha!
Magtika ka na ng mga pagkakasala mo, Lola Anda, before you plunge straight down into the abyss of hell. Hahahahaha!
Anyway, going back to the abominable Cristine Reyes, kiyemeng nagdrama-drama raw ang babaeng asal-demonya nang sumulat sa sis ni-yang si Ara Mina na kiyemeng magbati na kuno sila dahil magkapatid sila at alang-alang na lang sa kanilang inang nagkakaedad na.
Ang kaso, practically the same day, (Bubo-nika wrote about this in her pambalagtasan column…Hahahahahaha!) go raw ang karumal-dumal ang pag-uugaling demonya at nilait to-the-max ang ina niyang may phobia na sa kababuyan niya.
Grabeeee! Ang tindi talaga ng sama ng pag-uugali ng ilung babaeng ito na ewan kung kanino nagmana.
Anyway, after her demonic doing gets maximum media mileage, do you think this diabolical actress would still have a burgeoning career in the business?
I honestly don’t think so!
Ang mga katulad niyang hayupera ang pag-uugali ay nararapat lang na nalalaos at nawawalan ng career para magtanda at magpakataong muli.
Sa totoo, hindi sapat na marunong kang umarte at may ganda (kahit peke at di orig…Hakhakhak!), in the end, what’s most important is your attitude off-cam.
Ang mga taong tulad ng cellulite-infested na babaeng ito ay dapat na pinarurusahan and what a most fitting way to do it than giving her a dose of her own yosi-kadiri kind of medicine.
Huwag n’yong panoorin ang mga soap ope-ras na ginagawa ng matindi pa sa burak ang bibig at pag-uugaling babaeng ‘yan.
Dapat lang na matuto siya ng leksyon para magtanda!
Me Take: Idagdag niyo pa po ‘to: Kaya AA ang nickname niya dahil marumi daw siya sa katawan nung bata pa siya! AND please lang, take note of the initials… CR means COMFORT ROOM, only in the Philippines! Kaya coincidence naman talaga kung bakit ganun ang naging conspiracy na, eh. Kada project, ang mga shooting place na kung saan andun rin siya; simple lang ‘yan: UMAAAMOY IMBURNAL NA ANG BUONG LUGAR.
[To be honest with all of you guys, Ka Pete should be hailed as the Perez Hilton of the Philippines. Kung si Perez Hilton pa nga ang mag-blog laban ke AA, NAKO! Sangkatutak na ballistic words ang article na ‘yun, much worse than Ka Pete’s!]
Afraid sa pananaray ng press: Ilusyunada at make-up dependent na si Cristine, feel nang makipagbati kay Ara!
[First ko nakilala si Ka Pete dito!]
HAHAHAHAHA! Shakira ang impaktang si Cristine Reyes na ingrata’t walang utang na loob sa pagmamahal at pag-aalagang ginawa sa kanya ng utol niyang si Ara Mina.
Dahil overwhelming ang ginawang pagkampi kay Menang ng working press, nagkukumahog na raw lately ang babaeng maganda lang pag naka-make-up nang makapal! (Hakhakhak!) pero nuknukan nang sama ang pag-uugali (mag-deny ka at kikidlatan ang mga cellulite mo sa mga hita para maging permanent na at nang mabawasan ang kababuyan ng iyong pag-uugali, ingrata!) para suyuing muli ang kanyang ate and ultimately, save her career from total and absolute annihilation.
Sa true, di uubra ang kapraningan mong ‘yan sa working press.
Gagawin ka nilang pritong Ampalaya para mabawasan ang nakasusulasok mong pag-uugali.
WALANG UTANG NA LOOB!
Kung anuman ang ate mo, di mo na nararapat na ipinagkakalat ‘yun sa mga tao dahil ang kahihiyan niya ay kahihiyan mo rin.
The trouble with ingrate people like you is that you are suffused with your delusions, you no longer remember the good things that are done to you by other people.
Sa totoo, without your make-up on, and without the help of Vicki Belo, you are exceedingly plebeian.
Ordinaryo ka lang, ning, at di sing-ganda ng iyong Ate Ara na hindi nga siguro perpekto pero may sakdal-gandang kalooban.
Baka akakain mo na naman PR niya ako. Hahahahahahahaha!
I never was and never will be.
Nakita ko lang naman ang pag-uugali n’yong dalawa and comparing it, lost ka niya in terms of good breeding, social graces, caring for your mom, among other things.
Huwag ka ring mag-ilusyon na piniperahan si Ate Ara mo ng mga lalake dahil gawain mo ‘yun!
Kuha mo? Itanong mo kaya kay Rayver Cruz. Hahahahahahahaha!
Panget ang pag-uugali mo at kapag ganyan kabarubal ang ugali ng isang tao, hinding-hindi siya pagpapalain ng Diyos.
Huwag ka nga palang masyadong confident na mag-guest on national television with your face not made up to perfection because your plain features are revealed to the max.
Kita mo’t nilampaso ka nung lady friend mo na nakaayos talaga kaya ang ganda-ganda ng dating.
Ang mga tulad mong synthetic lang ang ganda, dapat, nararapat at karapat-dapat lang na naka-emyas to-the-max dahil di ka naman naturally beautiful like your Ate Mina.
Mag-exercise ka nga pala dahil yosi-kadiri ang mga cellulite sa mga hita mo!
Kabata-bata pa namumutaktak na sa mga yosi-kadiring cellulite?
Pa’no, ang tamad-tamad at umaasa lang sa mga diet pills na ‘yan para pumayat. Hakhakhak!
Mahusay ka nga sanang artista pero burak naman ang pag-uugali mo at asal-baboy ka!
Kundi ka ba naman baboy, hayan at pinag-aral ka ng ate Ara mo sa isang magandang eskwelahan pero wala ka namang natutunan kundi magbulakbol kaya ang syonga-syonga mo.
Kita mo nga at nilampaso ka ng articulate tongue at esekolang bearing ni Anne Curtis nu’ng sabay kayong nagpu- promote ng movie n’yo ni Derek Ramsay. Hahahahahaha!
Umayos ka, huh?
Baka ang ending malaos kang muli at di na makaangat pa, mawalan ka tuloy ng andang pangbayad kay Vicki Belo, biglang lumabas ang The Omen mong personalidad. Hahahahahahahahahaha!
Hindi porke’t yumaman ka na ay kay baba-baba na ang tingin mo sa kapatid mong nagpala sa’yo nung time na cheap ka pa’t walang career.
Mas malayo ang narating niya sa show business compared sa idiota at ilusyunadang tulad mo.
Wala ka sa kanyang kalingkingan.
You’re nothing but a second rate, trying hard, copycat!
Gaya-gaya ka lang naman sa ate mo. Pasalamat ka nga’t nauso ang mga beauty aids na ‘yan.
For if not, you’re too plebeian looking, no one would pay you any scant attention.
Magtutulog ka kasi at baka tumangkad ka pa at di ganyang puro lalake ang inaatupag mo!
Di ka bakla, ning! Babae ka!

Actually, you have to click the link so that you would really know… it is a blind item this time.
Me Take: HAHAHAHAHA! People should know the dirty side already! You know how much I love you guys, so yeah.
Of course, these featured articles are about me worst emeny, CR/AA. HAHAHA, mas nakakaaliw pa nga basahin compare naman kung basahin ‘yung mga articles laban ke Tita Cristy, kasi nga isa pa ‘yun, hate niya rin si AA!
Naku, bakit hindi pa niya sinanto si Marian!? Inggit ka sa byuti niya, ‘no?
Beat that, PinoyGossipBoy!
Just in case you are wondering, Ka Pete and Tita Cristy cannot get along with one another is because, you know, if you hate AA, or lezzay, if you’re “credible” enough, you might not get along with each other. Projection theory, to be exact! HAHAHAHAHA!
There are things that I did for this week; I took a shot of a peaceful waterscape surrounded by the foreground: A disastrous aftermath. This reminds me that peace and war could neutralize with one another although their relationship is like oil and water.
Osaka Monogatari OFFICIAL PV
As promised, this is the PV I made for AJ Perez’s (RIP) character in Osaka Monogatari.
So, I had a dream about AJ. It was like, he was thanking me for keeping him alive (or immortal) even though he’s no longer physically present. It’s not only for me and/or for Antonello, but it’s for everyone. Fans and non-fans alike would appreciate a story that will really make their hearts beat!
I thank my departed loved ones for giving him a chance to visit me in my dreams.
Watch out for the next episode in Osaka Monogatari: Kei is officially a Lasallian!
asdfghjklynette@Tumblr.com|AJ’s classical, immortal face will always awe our eyes.
Who was AJ Perez?
Antonello Joseph Sarte Perez (born February 17, 1993 – died April 17, 2011) was a homegrown talent of ABS-CBN’s Star Magic. His real break is actually Sabel, where he was Dido, the male protagonist of the series. Well, if he were still alive, he might have been the next Rico Yan. Oh, yes, he’s really a look-alike of Rico Yan not only because of the youthful looks, but also because they have a good heart.
I only appreciated him after he died
Whoa! Coincidence! Just like Rico Yan, I also appreciated this guy after he died. To be honest with you, my posthumous crush (yes, crushing on someone who is dead) was Rico Yan, but I always keep denying it to death after one of my classmates during Grade Three are teasing me that I crushed Rico Yan. FAIL, I should’ve NOT showed my coloring book to them! ARGH!
The reason why I appreciated him is because, I have this certain character in one of my upcoming fiction stories that I never ever published just yet… (anyway, just so you know, I’ll make a separate blog containing purely fiction stories, in WordPress, that is) and yes, he is the most interesting character you’ll ever know from me since he doesn’t only resemble AJ, but guess what his nationality is?
Answer: Nihon-jin desu ne!
That’s right. This guy’s a Japanese, who hails from Osaka. No doubt, he isn’t really used to city life and only went to Tokyo twice. (Oops, spoiler!) Not only that, he doesn’t only speak Nippongo and Kansai-ben, he also speaks English, with a slight accent, of course.
Regrets: I never saw him in person
The only possible way is to dream about this guy. It worked, actually! I actually dreamed of him, well, with tattoos, that is. Well, no offense to his fans, even to his biggest fan, but yeah. I thought he was alive when I dreamed about that, and also, I saw my granny there… I thought she was alive too. Well, I didn’t cry anymore since I spread out her legacy in regards to religion, that is.
Random pics of AJ Perez (from fan pages in Facebook)
So, yeah. He has a cute, classical face, na hindi nakakasawang tingnan. Yep, he’s a classical face, alright. He fits in the likes of iconic people, and yep, his face is iconic as well.
Fun fact: Someone wanted AA Klenk dead over AJ!
Learn more by clicking here.
Oh, good luck! The good is always called to heaven while the bad people are always burdened! Look at the series of events which made AA Klenk realized that her catfights made her LESS of a person, and the pamboboso thingy is one of them! Karma to her, a’ryt, and also, the Twitter accounts that express hate against her, it won’t be removed because my friend Violisimo Fernando once quoted someone that the “Internet is written in ink.”
Alright, so I was wondering if this would be a good idea or not.
I really don’t want this blog to be like my previous blog, which is bullcrap and uninteresting. So, any suggestions? I’d do it in WordPress rather (:
Here’s my LiveJournal Fanfix Blog whenever I write fiction stories. Well, I really don’t want to leave LiveJournal but, I really don’t think it’s a good idea to post some of my ideas in LiveJournal, since WordPress is better. (:
To my lovely followers, please answer this question ASAP thanks!
Do you want to know who she is/was?
So, yeah. That was the old me before I started to blog like a pro. 😀 Kidding.
Summer Dawn Ravenson is one of the most mysterious people you’ll ever know. Through this blog, you’ll actually know how she lived… as an author.
That was me during the identity crisis period. Well, I’ll use the third-person point of view…
Summer Dawn Ravenson is one of the most mysterious people you’ll never ever know. She disappeared after knowing that she had sought her true identity. She doesn’t explain much of herself since y’know, in the Identity Crisis period, self-introduction is really the hardest thing to do. It’s where you have to ask who you really are.
I don’t know why her name was like that. Maybe because summer was her favorite time of year, and dawn means, the time before morning comes. Ravenson? Well, there’s such thing as Robinson, so why not choose Ravenson rather? So, there. Anyways, the Summer Dawn Ravenson that you knew before is not the person whom you think she is right now.
Everytime she wants to write something, she is always been hindered by very high expectations. All the things she learned from where she come from actually didn’t help her start a new life. If you just notice most of her blog posts, you’ll really know that she’s quite introverted and as a result, she can’t create a decent blog entry, making her left behind from other well-known bloggers.
She tried to do everything, but these high expectations really hindered her… until one time came and she started to disappear…
Just so you know, this is a fiction story… based on a true story. xD
She usually writes a lot of fiction stories she could never ever tell to everybody. Because of identity crisis, it hindered her from accessing new things, etc. She can’t be just like those who are the most successful. Because of that, she wrote something that would help her release her emotions. It did work. It did.
Now you know how much she suffered, but now she knew how to release her anger towards those detractors. It actually worked, it was a therapy. It was all thanks to her thoughts which made her shout her feelings towards her… yeah, detractors.
Now you know why.
It was really hard for her to kick people’s butt, actually. Most people did ridicule her for her isolation since she doesn’t mingle with fake people. She wanted to be a somebody. She wanted to prove anyone that she’s not going to be below standards. She would porve everyone wrong.
It’s true. She did prove everyone wrong. She lambasted the admin who used to govern her home that insulted her. As a result, she had her revenge, this time, not in the name that she was using. She’s now… you know who it is, right? ;D
Her admirer’s grudges
He called her a nab.
Seriously, you can’t call her a nab. She’s gone, btw. You can’t find her anymore. She’s not a part of your life anymore since she decided to think independently without your help. It worked. She is the type of person whom you really can’t mess up with. She’s not in an identity crisis period anymore, actually. She’s gone.
You just have to know more about her here. She’s here. You’ll feel her presence. You’ll feel that she has changed. You won’t feel anything against her. It’s all about how you interpret things.
She is. Mysterious.
I blog a lot, actually.
BUT, I have two separate blogs. One is my very most personal blog, and the other is about outside personal things.
Blogging isn’t about making money out of your personal life. Blogging is all about sharing things that others do not know. It’s about being serious and also having a sense of humor at the same time.
Blogging is all about… making everything a magazine online.
Lessons learned from other bloggers (although they don’t say it, a’ryt)
1.) Always make your blog private if it is all about your complete personal life.
2.) If it’s public, don’t ever namedrop. Remember, namedropping is always a mortal sin on the Internet.
3.) If you love to namedrop, isolate your blog. Yes, it’s possible, actually.
4.) Always post something meaningful.
5.) Use the stream of consciousness.
The things that you should try avoiding…
1.) Showing that you are in the identity crisis period.
2.) Posting stuff that you usually do not show to the crowd.
3.) Posting something really bad, unless you have completely moved on.
4.) Embracing porn and posting it on your blog.
The reason why I started the “Anything in Random” challenge is because I want everyone to show their prowess in blogging. It is a fearless forecast game (of course, I do not really require those who are joining to post photos of their non-celebrity crushes) where they can post something about things that they really want to share, etc. I really do not explain much since I do not think before I speak, or maybe y’know what I’m using… 😀
Taboos when blogging/Do’s and Don’ts
I really consider these as taboos is because… they do not really express who you really are. Try not to fit in with these common people and be unique! It’s not bad to be unique since… it’s not fake or common.
1.) Telling everyone on your intro box in Multiply saying, “You view, you comment. No plastics, backfighters or feeling close, and no rude comments will be posted.” — Of course, who cares about you if no one is interested about your life, right?
2.) Don’t grab/steal without crediting others — I did this before, actually. However, because I think it’s wrong, I started to delete it. So, yeah. Always give credit to the person who owns that picture, ok? Some are very tolerant and forgiving, but please don’t ever test their patience!
Rating: It’s a DO.
3.) It’s alright to save/download photos of your crush — Yes, I consider stalking in this blog, but please, if you’re asking about the color of my underwear, it is always color pink. There you have it. I do not really ask about the color of my crush’s underwear since that’s privacy! If stalking your crush for you isn’t a bad idea after all, always remember that it is not good to ask for their landline number (but asking for their FB accounts is alright), their blood type or even their dark secrets. Always remember, a secret is always a secret and no one should be an asshole to reveal it, mmkay? If you are willing to stalk someone, make sure that the person you’re always following doesn’t personally know you. Oh, and last thing: Don’t ever plan an assassination plot if you really have an obsession on that person!
Rating: Drink Moderately.
4.) Listening to a know-it-all’s advice — The know-it-all is known for restraining you from blogging good things about what you sense in everyday life. Oh, come on. He/she’s not a true expert in blogging. I’m telling you, they’re not the ones to be trusted. It’s all in your own instincts if they’re just fooling you just to let their hands on fame.
Rating: It’s a DON’T.
5.) Posting negative things about a celebrity — This is much more acceptable. If you have anything BAD to say about that celebrity, go ahead, because’s no one is gonna stop you from doing it.
So, Imma post things about my experience about that person who tried to stop me from posting good stuff in deviantArt. 😀
The game is still on the go, but people are too lazy to join! Nah, don’t be shy! It’s a challenge, remember?
Blogger Profile: Miho
The half-Japanese, half-Filipina tourism student is one of the many famous bloggers not only in my former second home, but she keeps a deviantArt account that has many followers. If she wasn’t that good then as a photographer, at least she has improved. Siya nang maraming followers/watchers sa deviantArt xD. She is well-admired for her friendliness and most of all, the way she shows her kawaii side. Although being Japanese in looks, her heart belongs to the Philippines.
She has other blogs since she loves blogging a lot. I think I could almost relate with her since she was blogging about who she was before until her blog entries are starting to be like that of a real blogger. I really do not know if she has a new blog, but anyway, I think she has a lot of things to share, at least.

Photo blogs, or we call it, “PH-logs.” This term is coined by Andrew Pamorada, a proud Lasallian photographer who currently works for The LaSallian. Yep, that’s what most bloggers do. Aside from Kuya Andrew or “Andoy,” of course, who doesn’t even know Tricia Gosingtian, a fashion photographer and at the same time, a blogger? HA! She’s listed in “Interesting People” and you know how to find her there, right?
Creating a photo blog isn’t just blogging and taking pictures. It’s actually something that you want to express yourself… through pictures, that is. To express yourself in that way, there should be creativity. Aside from that, there should be aesthetics. This may sound technical, but y’know what I mean. Having a good photograph should speak a thousand words in it. So, yeah.
