I actually started writing this one from my cousin’s flat – it’s the place I’ve been staying in for nearly a week now. As those of you on plurk already know, there’s no net access from home yet. Planned on making this entry when I was actually online, but whenever I get online, I end up doing a whole bunch of other things instead. XD

So! Singapore. Where do I begin?

Watch out for them teal deers. )

Summary: it’s been a pretty crazy trip so far. I have no doubt that it’ll just get crazier from here.

I told [livejournal.com profile] yukitsu, [livejournal.com profile] khursten, [livejournal.com profile] kye_kestrel and a few others this before, but back before I left home, I knew that somehow this trip would be good for me. So far, I’m right. There is a special joy that comes with being on your own, with no one to really rely on but yourself – sure, you have to do all of your stuff on your own and plan all of this stuff on your own and worry about your cash and your laundry and your room and your commuting route, but god, it’s glorious.

It’s the little things that are best about independence, I realize. Standing around at the bus station while you wait for your ride home, listening to Nine Inch Nails on your mobile and absorbing the noise and heat of the city, wandering outside to the balcony of the place you’re staying in to light up and enjoy the breeze… that sort of stuff. Take note: I’m the 25-year-old girl who’s still living with her parents and therefore subject to all sorts of loving but ultimately ridiculous rules. I don’t love my family any less, but I am starting to see that I really need to get out there already. And Singapore is the first step.

I do miss my cat my cat, though. Like, really, really, really miss her. There are lots of friendly strays that are beautiful looking and plump and stuff, but they just make me wish that I could’ve brought Gouto with me. And I kind of really wish my girl friends from home were down here with me too. ._.

Anyway, I previously mentioned that having no internet at home is really good for me. This applies in more than just one direction. For one, so far, I’ve managed to read half of the huge-ass pile of unread comics and doujinshi that have just been piling up on my hard drive for the past year and a half. For another, I’ve managed to catch up on a lot of anime and tv shows, and watch some movies that have also been idling around in my collection. Something tells me that if I had brought my PS3 along, I would’ve been able to play through some of the games that I’ve had to set aside too – but it’s a good thing that I didn’t, else I’d be distracted. Forever.

Oh, and I’ve gotten a lot of writing done. Like, a lot of writing. Let me show you. :3


† DURARARA! Izaya, Kida, rendezvous. // The possibility of zero.
† COUNT CAIN/GODCHILD. Riff, Cain, watching. // And yes, the way you look at me.
† FINAL FANTASY 7. Aerith, ghosts. // A new iconography of resurrection.
† GINTAMA. Gintoki, Katsura, how things have changed. // Faith is a series of calculations.
† SOUL CAMPAIGN (RP). Vergil, Yuna and a bottle of booze. // Women do have an affinity for evil
† SOUL CAMPAIGN (RP). Genesis, Vergil, black mail. // Only enemies speak the truth
† SOUL CAMPAIGN (RP). Phoenix, Edgeworth, Soul Talk. // Sic probo
† SOUL CAMPAIGN (RP). Date, Dante, getting crazy. // Scuse me while I kiss this guy.
† SOUL CAMPAIGN (RP). Dojima, Roy, taking the next step. // When a heart must go where it belongs
† SOUL CAMPAIGN (RP). Mukuro, Adah, experimentation. // Given the scalpel, they dissect a kiss.
† SOUL CAMPAIGN (RP). Shizuo, Nanako, babysitting. // The quiet moments while the city’s still dark.
† SOUL CAMPAIGN (RP). Roy, Vergil, discipline. // Nous sommes fucked.
† SOUL CAMPAIGN (RP). Vergil, Kurapika, treating ladies right. // Confusion that is so hard to be avoided.
† SOUL CAMPAIGN (RP). Pedosun, Voyeurmoon and creeper!Adah. // Things in heavenly bodies.
† SOUL CAMPAIGN (RP). Roy, Celty, silence. // You can either hold on or let go.
† SOUL CAMPAIGN (RP). Rhode, Chrome, tension is sex. // I (don’t) hate you.
† SOUL CAMPAIGN (RP). Mukuro, Rhode, ten years later. // She got a buttermilk smile and a thorny touch.

Week Three, here I come.

Spent Saturday out with [livejournal.com profile] kye_kestrel and [livejournal.com profile] yukitsu, where we ate good food and watched Forbidden Kingdom. IDK, PEOPLE, I LIKED IT. I mean, really: how can you go wrong with Jackie Chan and Jet Li in one movie? And, and, it was a nifty take on the whole Journey to the West thing. Or maybe I'm the only one who finds it nifty because I didn't know jack shit about the movie and just watched it because Jackie Chan and Jet Li were both there. *coughs* ANYWAY I LIKED IT.

Of course, beyond the movie there was crack and plotting involved. I gave birth to three new characters, a new pairing and a motherfucking Zombie Attack ala Silent Hill/Resident Evil for Bloodsport. Best thing about the new characters is that I may be able to use them for certain parts of Endtimes. AND TWO OF THEM ARE LIKE MY TRIBUTE TO KATEKYO HITMAN REBORN. *bad fangirl, y/y?*

...Which reminds me: I really have to go over the old profiles and fix them sometime. Yeah. Someday. Uh-huh.

Yukeh and I stayed out til late because the driver had to attend to Peter and my grandma~ that was cool, though, because Yukeh slept over here anyway. Parents and my older brother were out attending a wedding in Pangasinan, so we managed to have another sleepover koushien. For great justice!

Today went by nice and slow. I even managed to sneak in a cigarette. ♥ I may play a bit more of Baroque tomorrow after I get home from doing Ateneo stuff... assuming, of course, that I go out at all. Maybe I'll just run my errands on Wednesday or something. *lazy* I could also spend tomorrow looking for my memory card. It went missing somehow. o_o I'd ask my older brother about it, but he can get annoying to talk to when it comes to stuff like this.

...I really do want to find that memory card though. I mean, if I don't find it, that means I have to restart several games. ._.

[livejournal.com profile] le_esperance, I'm nearly done burning the stuff I owe you. It took a while because of... well, stuff. BUT YEAH. How shall I get it to you? Will we meet up in ADMU?

Hurhur. Might marathon some more animu tonight, and then maybe get some plotting done. If the wrist doesn't start acting up again, I just might start on my birthday gift for Yukeh. 21 FICLETS/DRABBLES/WHATEVERS, YO.

Guys, please note that we'll have to wrap the session up by 8 at the latest. I have somewhere to be in the evening.

Also: I am afraid that beyond [livejournal.com profile] khursten and [livejournal.com profile] aerien, I can't accommodate any more outsiders. I consulted my co-DM and some of my players, and they want to keep the crowd small, as I do, to make things easier.

Had funky dreams and woke up WAY TOO EARLY because of the heat, so I kinda had to do my usual damage control thing: eat just a bit of breakfast to make sure I don't sick up, and then crawl right back into bed. Woke up from that feeling refreshed.

Lesson learned: until this heat lets up for serious, I'm sticking to air-conditioned rooms. B|

I half-considered plotting today, but ended up watching stuff instead. Checked Mnemosyne (aka, the anime that reeled me in because its promo poster had Boobs and its entry on Anime News Network was listed as "Mature, with sex, drugs & violence") out -- suffice to say, I was not disappointed. Zombies and lesbian action, anyone? :3

Oh, there was also episodes 9-12 of Torchwood season 2, since Peter was on the brink of forcing me to marathon it with him at gunpoint. THEN there was the first episode of R2, which was actually almost snazzy. Srsly, though: Lulu did NOT need to do those choreographed, gay-ass (pun intended) hand movements in the end.

I have the first episodes for Dr. Who and Battlestar Galactica sitting on my hard drive. I really should watch, but... I think it's best if I get some writing done. Or maybe I should just talk crack with the usual people.

You know, some folks have been particularly noisy on the internet as of late, and not in a way that I would consider ideal. Call me a bitch, but IMHO, some, if not all labels are overrated. I don't think one has to keep blathering on about that which they THINK consolidates their identity, for the sake of their egos. Furthermore, the least they could do is be consistent about their opinions. Less defensiveness and more actual thought would help too.

I know one thing for sure: I've been consistent, at least. I take pride in that.

This scene, it's getting so tiresome. But~ that's just me, I suppose.
I'm posting this because my layout displays the calendar thingie for entries and I'm weirded out by the fact that I have consistently missed out on posting on Tuesdays this month.


...Applause, applause! D:

Um. Well. Some of you guys already know that I've had these two longfic ideas that have been bugging me ever since I finished the game, but school work and general laziness kept me from getting around to working on them. With school out and Holy Week on the horizon, though, I figured that I'd spend the next few days working exclusively on all my longfic projects. I know I ought to be looking towards my originals, but I figure that the better approach would be to write and finish most of, if not all of, the stuff for my smaller ones, and then just drabble whenever I get tired. That way, I get more done in the long run rather than stay fixated on a single project without actually doing anything about it.

*breathes* So yeah. Basically, I think I've met my goal for today. Once I finish doing some stuff for the Epic P3 Sequel Idea, I will see what I can do for my TYL KHR one. Been pestering [livejournal.com profile] khursten, [livejournal.com profile] yukitsu and [livejournal.com profile] kye_kestrel endlessly for ideas... I sure hope I didn't end up annoying any of them for nothing. x_X


FLIST PEOPLE WHO ARE INTO BOTH KHR AND OOFURI: If, let's say, Yamamoto was on a pro baseball team, who among the Oofuri cast do you think he should be teamed up with? I have my own ideas at the moment, but it wouldn't hurt to get your opinions on it. Thoughts, people?

Writing stuff aside, I didn't do much today other than watch [livejournal.com profile] khursten spazz about Eureka 7 in my chat window while alternately talking KHR/randomness with [livejournal.com profile] kye_kestrel and [livejournal.com profile] sindapa. Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] khursten did something Unquestionably Evil by showing me KHR merchandise, which now leaves me torn between buying a Gokudera mug, a Hibari mug, a stuffed Hibird, or that whole damned set and more. A glorious vacation is glorious! o/

I've been getting hungry easier these days. @_@ I wonder if it's because I changed my diet and lessened my overall food intake.


Also: This is very, VERY bad crack for a rabid KHR fan like myself.


EDIT #2: And lo, even more bad crack:

This weekend ended wonderfully, and was the best possible thing a girl could ask for after having an exceptionally harrowing week.

Saturday: [livejournal.com profile] yukitsu came over although she slept in and should have been around earlier than she was but she fails at waking up so yeah 8D -- we fixed my room (sort of... at least everything's been shoved out of sight and my bookshelf is back to being pretty? o_o), bought (and ate) ice cream, and watched Macross Frontier and Appleseed. Deunan Knute goes right up there with Balsa and Balalaika on my Tough Women I Want to Have Babies With Even Though They'll Prolly Kill Me list, and THERE IS SOMETHING FUNDAMENTALLY WRONG/RIGHT WITH ALTO BEING KANDA!FACE + ABE!VOICE. D:

Today: The usual Sunday gig, 'cept Petrik's family made a guest appearance; Anika got to bully bugger Dad with her cuteness in order to get him to crack nuts for her (no, for serious: she's fascinated at how he does it), and Petrik and Yas talked to my mom about their Church wedding plans. They might have the ceremony in Taal, with the Punzalan Ancestral House as a possible venue for the reception. They left an hour or so after lunch, and everyone kinda went their separate ways... I did some more writing (mostly backlogged drabble ideas from WAY back for Endtimes) and picked up where I left off with the doujinshi downloading madness. [livejournal.com profile] hitman_reborn is a bad place to be for a fangirl like me. *coughs*

Being able to do absolutely useless things is very satisfying -- I'm listening through the music lists for my stories (and all characters/pairings/battles within) and STILL downloading KHR porn doujin, and [livejournal.com profile] yukitsu and I are also spamming each other's inboxes with FF.net alerts while we update our accounts with all the crap we've written these past few months. People who have me on Author Alert must hate me for the huge-ass fic dumps I have a tendency to do. XD

Right. Now, since third time's the charm and all, if you haven't already answered this poll for me, please answer. THE TIES MUST BE BROKEN.


EDIT 2: Posted again. It's Oofuri porn this time. ♥♥♥

The real purpose of this post was so that I could flash this:

bedroom toys
Powered By Personal Massagers

This amuses me beyond measure. Perhaps a job change is in order? o_O


Righto. Yesterday was rough, but the Zen Meter filled out relatively fast due to the good company of friends and my own parents. I was supposed to sleep in and chillax for the day, but Graduation Paranoia kicked in and I ended up leaving in the morning to attend to clearance. The good thing is, I got 98% of it done (I just have to check back tomorrow and send the form to its proper place), and I was able to get some information on the actual ceremony and stuff. You know how it is with my university -- they leave super seniors to sorta fend for themselves.

On another note, I got to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] miyachan after so long, and hung out a bit with [livejournal.com profile] hamster_friend. And I ate all my cookies while I was waiting around. And played more Breath of Fire III.

...Which reminds me. [livejournal.com profile] khursten, the copy that I downloaded of Janne D'arc is corrupted, and that's already the one I got from the webbie that you referred me to. ._. Maybe I can try out the one Melz has? Or maybe I should just buy an original UMD. *crai*

I've decided to spend the rest of the day until whenever catching up on backlogged manga downloads and possibly picking up Katekyoushi Hitman Reborn! while I'm at it. My Muse is still KO'd from the abuse I put her through for the World of Darkness campaign, so I'll need to give her some time. *fufufu* When she DOES return, however...

Polls are fun! )

I used radio buttons because some of you cheat and just say "ANYTHING GOES! :D" all the time. Er. Just comment if you have questions and stuff. ;_;

Today was fun and surprisingly productive even though I spent most of it outside... left in the morning (pest control bug zapping!), got to submit my Final Requirements (and ended up running into Sir DM, who commended me for my work on my thesis + the presentation~ ♥) and hung around in Starbucks/McDonald's/Starbucks with [livejournal.com profile] yukitsu, talking about the usual nothings. Yukeh left before she got to meet Tatay Carling, though -- I was hoping to introduce them to each other. ._.

Although we didn't get to talk for very long, it was good to reconnect with 'tay. He gave me some updates on Madlum and how things are going, and showed me pictures of some girls from Miriam who had their immersion. I felt bad that I wasn't able to prepare my own pictures from the immersion, but here's hoping I'll be able to visit him in Madlum sometime and deliver them personally.

After we went our separate ways, I hiked back to Starbucks and got some more work done for the WoD campaign while I waited for the driver, then I swung over to UP to pick my Mom up. We got home by around 4~

Pio will be sleeping over from Thursday until Sunday, since Mai Mai is in Shanghai and he's lonely he's lazy to cook. Plus, rallies in the area might make living in Makati VERY difficult. Only managed to come up now and type this because all of us were chilling around the dinner table, shooting the breeze.

Tomorrow will be another bumming day since Saturday is likely to be busy! Should probably hit the gym next week again (2 months of idle time makes for difficult workouts!) and prepare for driving lessons~ :O
Woke up at 10 AM without a deadline to roll me out of bed or the sound of the construction workers over at our neighbor's house banging away at their ceiling. It was fucking glorious.

I told myself that I was going to get started on World of Darkness stuff again (I've been doing that on and off ever since I dreamt about the campaign I am running with [livejournal.com profile] hamster_friend), but I ended up doing the following instead:

  • Putting up a new layout. I killed about 2-3 hours trying to figure out how to code templates for this other header I have lying around, but I eventually gave up and fixed this one up instead. I CAN HAS GOKUDERA! ♥
  • Replaced my Persona 3 mood theme with a Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann one. Because my drill must pierce the heavens. I'll prolly go off and upload more mood themes after I finish this entry.
  • Replaced nearly all of my icons. Again. Like I usually do every 3-14 days or so. It's a fairly weird bunch, since I have a shitload of icons and I try to mix and match the icons I really, really want to use ASAP with other icons that I'm okay or lukewarm with. ...I'm weird, I know. Iconage is an art for me, even if I can't make my own. x_X
  • Downloaded an extra browser that makes uploading photos to Photobucket as easy as teh shiz, for great mood-theme-uploading justice.

...Oh yeah, that reminds me! TO THE PHOTOSHOPPING/IMAGING GENIUSES ON MY F-LIST: I still really, really want to use that header I tried coding up a layout for, but it's just too small to be manageable for the sort of look I'd prefer on my LJ. Might I know who'd be willing to help me with expanding it and such? T_T

Having a paid LJ account gives one an excuse to use up one's whole day doing otherwise useless internet things just because you want your desktop to sparkle for you. o_o To be honest, though, I've been meaning to do all of this for a while, but my workload over the semester kept me really busy. Now that it's all over, though, I have the privilege of occupying myself with little things like these.

I do solemnly swear to go back to writing as soon as I finish WoD stuff.
