Merman of the Undersea [An Excerpt]

Hi dearies, I'm back! Though I am not quite active in blogging that much, I still write a lot. Creativity and writing is always there. It just transformed into a different platform. 

Let me take this opportunity to share with you my upcoming story. This is a novella, a part of a series in  one Fantasy world. For now, it will be released as an eBook. And depending on the reception and the success of the whole series, I might release a physical copy as a compilation (*crosses fingers*). 

Presenting, Merman of the Undersea (ISBN 978-621-8272-00-2):

Merman of the Undersea eBook Cover


I invite you to pre-order it. And to convince you, here is an excerpt:

***

    A shadow of a skiff passed by the sea, obscuring the illumination of the moon in its depths. Silence filled the expanse, except for the soft paddles of the person on board. The merman wondered how the boat got past the guard, the leviathan that their Kingdom calls The Kraken. It was trained to allow only Merpeople into this cloistered ocean area. Unless…

    He knew it was against the rules. He had swum too far from the Mainsea doing his job. But as a Resource Hunter; he has always violated rules if needed be, if the survival of their Kingdom depended on it. And this time, it might. 

    He had never swum this close to the surface in his lifetime. He was careful not to give a hint that he was there, and halted at the threshold. The law was sacrosanct: merpeople should not breathe the air of the land, though it was never explained why. Doubt entered his mind; death was not something he wanted today. Maybe this was a bad idea after all. He could just ignore the boat, whoever is on it won’t survive the rage of the ocean, anyway. He made an inch of turn to go back.

    But the skiff halted. And a voice echoed...

    “Is somebody there?” 

    The merman stopped in his tracks, and floated under the water, still and silent. The voice continued, “Don’t be afraid. I come in peace. May I go down? I just need to talk.” 

    He didn’t know how to respond. Some fish creatures can jump out of the water but he didn’t want to risk it. So, he just flipped his fish tail on the surface, hoping the stranger could get a hint. 

    He heard a splash nearby. Turning his head, he found another merman swimming towards him. He has a smooth dark fish tail. But he didn’t have scales between his fingers and his ears were round, unlike the merman’s fanned gills. An alien creature. He swam a pace back, senses ready for any defensive action. 

    The stranger stopped in his tracks, careful not to trigger him. He raised his hands over his head, a sign of surrender, and the merman calmed down. 

    He remained where he was. “People call me Slippery Goldfish. As you can see, I am a shapeshifter. I’ll leave as soon as possible.” 

    “What do you need? Why do you speak our language?” 

    “I studied the languages of the world. Part of the job,” He slowly put his hands down and relaxed, and approached the merman. “What is your name?”

    “My name is Maoui. And what are you, strange creature? You, not telling me your real name is suspicious.”

    “Maoui,” Slippery Goldfish replied. “Not knowing my real name is better for you. Trust me on that.”

[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!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
