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! :)

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur
