Waiting for Rain

Did you know that I hate rain? Whenever the sky darkens and droplets of water fall from the sky, my spirit gets gloomy. Rain means getting my feet wet from the flood and puddles. Rain means me getting my clothes and other things wet. Rain means me getting sick from the cold.

I think of negative things when it rains. Yet there is a person who inspires me greatly and has taken on the name Rain. The more I get to know him, the more I admire him. His fans from all over the world can surely relate to what I feel. He makes me happy. He compels me to think positive despite the hardships of life.

When he smiles, I see myself smiling too. He will always be one of the people who influenced me in a big way. Rain inspires me to move on with my dream and to love my work. He is God's blessing to me!

What about rainfall? Even if I associate it with cold suffering, Rain however, chose to be remembered as such: 

'But, the only thing I can do for you is to work hard to achieve my goal. That is, even some 30 or 40 years later when you become a mother or a grand mother of a family, I want you to remember me when you see rain falling from the sky.  I want to be remembered as, ‘a young man who once had a passion (for his work) that made me happy.’

Now, rain has an entirely new meaning to me. Whenever the sky darkens and starts to drizzle, I see myself smiling at the thought of Rain. Sure, I still get my feet and things wet. There is still the probability of myself getting sick because of the cold. But now, I trek them with a smile on my face. And that makes all the difference.

 I am here, waiting for Rain.
I am waiting for July to come quickly!

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
