Ang Ballpen Ko

Hirap akong sumulat sa Filipino. Kung tutusin, ito ang pinaka-unang blog ko sa ating Wikang Pambansa. Pero, bakit ko nga bang naisip na gamitin ang Filipino?

Kasi... dahil kay Bob Ong, ang paborito kong Filipino author. Na-inspire ako sa libro niyang "Stainless Longganisa". Filipino ang ginagamit niyang wika sa pagsusulat. In his honor, pipilitin kong gumuwa ng babasahin sa wikang hindi ko pa na-master. Pero hanggang Taglish lang yata ang kaya ko.

Nahihintulad ko ang "Stainless Longganisa" sa isang importanteng handbook tungkol sa pagsusulat, pagiging manunulat, at paglalakbay ng manunulat tungo sa pagtupad ng pangarap. Nakukwento ang mga iyon ni Bob Ong from his experiences. (Ay! English na naman! Hehehe!)

Siguro nagagandahan ako sa libro dahil may plano akong maging author. Ang problema nga lang, hindi ko alam kung anong topic ang isusulat ko. Basta gusto kong makasulat ng libro. Yun na yun! Pero sabi nga ni Bob Ong, marami pang sakripisyo ang kailangan at marami pang rejection ang matatanggap bago pa maabot yun.

Ngayon pa lang, namumuhunan na ko ng mga 'credentials'. Na-publish na ang mga poems ko sa Meg at Candy Magazine. Masaya ako nang inedit pa nila ang mga gawa ko. Hehehe... Hindi man ako nanalo ng "Poem of the Month", sobra sa okay na sa akin ang makita ng mga teenagers ng Pinas ang mga poem ko. Yipee! Pero incomparable happiness talaga ang nadama ko nang first time mapublish ang pinadala kong "Letter to the Editor" sa Game! Magazine. Para akong lumilipad noon.

Naka-relate ako sa libro dahil isa sa mga pangarap ko ang maging writer. Nagkakaproblema din pala si Bob Ong kung saan kukuha ng inspirasyon sa paggawa ng kanyang mga obra. Hay! Inspirasyon talaga ang number one ingredient sa lahat! Kung wala iyon, hindi ako nakakapagsulat.

Dito na nagtatapos ang latest blog entry ko. Uhm, hindi ko alam kung makakasulat pa ulit ako gamit ang Filipino. Mas kumportable kasi ako sa Ingles. In school, I was trained to use English in writing my articles. Pero kahit na mahirap mag-Filipino, naappreciate ko pa rin ang kagandahan nito. Sana nga pala, hindi ako mentally umaabsent sa mga Filipino subject noon. Hehehe! :)

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
