That’s What I Like

Annyeong! Yes, it’s quite a long time since I was able to post something here. Mianhae!~ Well, I must say I’m doing fine with my current work. What I’ve been praying for is for me to have a favorable schedule and performance all throughout. Having shifting schedule is okay, all I’m praying is a favorable one. Enough for me to still be able to bond with my cousins from abroad (who came for a couple of months long for vacay) even on weekdays.

And I must admit that I still feel gloomy most of the time, thinking that until now, the right guy still hasn’t come yet. Last month and so, the guy who I used to taught I have a special connection with, tested the waters again and thought he can still stir up something between us. Of course, I didn’t take it seriously because I know for a fact that he’s just looking for someone to play with again. I mean, grow up. When will you learn to take someone seriously? 
As to why I don’t want to grow fond of someone too much easily not unless they get to prove something. Take it from me who already experienced being the one who’s pursuing someone instead of the one being pursued. I just hope and pray that God would already lead me to that someone that will prove to me that not all guys are alike. 

Nothing Else Matters

Annyeong! Must admit I purportedly posted this particular blog post a few days ago. My apologies, it has been a busy week at the offi ce. How are yoy guys doing?

In the past few weeks, I’ve noticed the very core of what the cliche-but-true, “There are people who will come into your life that would change you the way you are.” Since I got bullied many times before, I used to be excessively appreciative too much on people I hold dearly to the point of giving everything even though they came off not worthy of all the effort and whatnot.

A couple of weeks ago, a random guy approached me while I’m killing the time at the mall. But of course, I didn’t entertain him since I know how dangerous it is to meddle with strangers these days. And I’ve been there before. Trusting someone I just met who’s a total stranger which I thought was real but left in an instant so he turned out to be just a waste of time and effort.

Suffice to say, you really have to be careful and know the person first before pouring yourself out to avoid crying over spilled coffee. You can’t just go over meet someone for the first time and next thing you know, that person knows everything about you. Furthermore, we should always know who and who not to meddle yourselves with (at least not too quick, wait for the right time, just in case).

11:11

Annyeong! It’s the last month of the year and few days from now, we’re gonna have the privilege to celebrate our Savior’s birth. And I just realized that it really pays to have a close and intimate relationship with God.

I’ve been praying a million times everyday for me to have a job again and promised God, this time I will give my 100% best and I’m constantly praying that I would receive it before 2016 ends. By His unchanging grace, I was blessed by a new one last Thursday and a couple of days ago, I already got hired officially.

In relation to the title of this post, it came to my thought in the past few weeks something about not rushing things when it comes to finding the right person you’re gonna spend the rest of your life with, which I didn’t decipher way back. I used to question God why am I used to be always the one without a partner in my group of friends back in college.

Recently, I convened the reality that you don’t just pour your entirety on whoever comes along just because you’ve been waiting for it to happen. Don’t settle for whoever comes along your way like 11:11 which some people wait each day believing if they mutter their wish on that time, it will happen.You really have to wait for the right person to come along. Someone who’s worth all your entirety and would love you beyond your imperfections.

Don’t Matter

Oh hello! Many things happened in the past month and thank God I got regularized from my recent work. Although I’m still in the midst of improvement and I still commit mistakes a million times. Which opened my eyes to the realization that you really can’t fathom if the friend/s you’re with is real or not not until you see how they treat you in times of failure and despair. If they still treat you the same way they do when need something from you, then you’re blessed to have them in your life because they’re real.

Suffice to say that it’s hard for me to pinpoint as to who I consider as my bestfriend nowadays. Had some whom I’ve been very close for quite sometime but ended up as either just one of my acquaintances or worst, some even grew distant due to some irrelevant reason of theirs. Have people who I became friends from the start (or so I thought, sadly..) but next thing I know, they tend to be absurdly bipolar being too kind to me at times then will turn to my number one hater in just a snap.

Sometimes I just don’t know who to trust. That’s why I tend to create a wall between me and some people (to my crush, even, would you believe??!). It’s like I’m too afraid to open myself to them due to the fear of getting attached to them too much and might end up getting hurt and left alone again. I guess you really can’t force yourself to be part of someone’s life if they intentionally not let you be part of it.

3 Ways: Love in The Dark

Annyeong! Sorry for being inactive for a week or so. Been to diverse events since my favorite cousins is in town so I got preoccupied by their much awaited summer vacay. And so my tummy! My cheeks looks like a pair of burger buns right now, for crying out loud!

Aside from this, I’ve been to a rollercoaster of negativity with the couple of weeks of hiatus I’ve been to. Had a complicated issue with my wavemate in expense of defending a friend late last month and the feeling of not having the freedom and happiness that people of my age deserves to have due to having over-strict parents went up last week until now.

And it’s hitting me so deep. The fact that the only person you really can depend on is yourself. Which is immensely hard for me to take in. Someone who went through a lot of rejection in diverse sorts all throughout the years. Someone who’s been yearning for one thing all this time. To be loved as much as the love that she gives to everyone who she loves. To get the love that she deserves.

And I must admit it’s hard to push yourself to do best in everything when you feel like no one bothers to understand and be at your side at times like these. Because they don’t know and fathom how painful and heavy everything that you’ve been through/going through. And it’s agitating and heart wrenching to take in the fact that you don’t know what to do anymore but to pretend that everything’s okay and you always have to try hard to hold back those tears not to pour all over your face and force a smile – well, a fake one, all the time.

So help me, God. – Matthew 21:22*

To keep myself sane, I went through my closet and declare a rade on what pieces I can incorporate with my black knit see through top with faux leather short sleeves. And I opt to dole out short description on each conveying diverse sides of me in real life.

Chill Pill

When I’m on those days in which I’m not in the mood to dress up, I go for casual, toned down and laid back look. Comfort over style, well.. sometimes.

Plunge on Grunge

I’ve always or let’s say for so many years, I fell over heels with color black. Whether I’m in the mood to dress up or not. Especially nowadays. I’m not fond of wearing too much neon colors. Like when I’m wearing one piece of striking color, I keep the rest of the pieces muted.

The Kpop fangirl
Been a cray cray fangirl since early 2010. I can say that the my kpop fangirl side took over and has influenced my style on about 60-80% or more. But of course, I still keep up with the cons of thr tropical and excessively hot country I’m in.

Love Me For Me

It’s exceedingly evident that I’m a born camwhore, isn’t? Especially, at present, that I’m an aspiring blogger and Lookbook-er. Those two indeed aroused my yearning for fashion and photography. Although, to be honest, I cannot consider myself a pro yet. But there’s always a room for improvements, right? How I wish I’ve started blogging for almost a year ago and I’m still in the process of learning and delving into newfangled things to improve and further hone my skills.

And so, I tend to grab all the opportunities I can get while I’m still young. Of course, it would be more amusing if you’re with your friends, isn’t? And last saturday, me and my five friends were supposed to have a photoshoot at our crib. Likewise, I got enormously excited about it and made several plans on what would they wear and all that.

Sadly, the day after our supposed-to-be-fun-day had been CANCELLED! 😩 I was like: NOOOOOO! </3 So for me not to think of it that much, I and my screwball brother decided to have a photoshoot. I chose to be my K-pop fangirl self. I bet some of you might recognized that I didn’t focus on accesories on this look, eh? Keri naman e! As what they say, sometimes, less is more! You don’t have to plunk lots of accesories just for your outfit to be considered as exceptional and unique. As long as you have enough statement pieces in your outfit, then that’s it!

And if some of you might recognized that my hair is inspired by Cher Lloyd’s undercut hair, right? Even thugh, I didn’t do it literally but I braided it to achieve at least a bit of it. I really love Cher Lloyd’s music and looks. She’s still young yet she’s so incredibly talented and oozing with swag excessively! And one of her songs that I adore is Love Me For Me. One of my favorite lyrics in the song was this:

A Doll House Is All That You Could See

But It’s So Far From My Reality

I Got Problems, I Got Issues

Sometimes It’s All Too Much For Me

Wrap It Up With A Pretty Little Bow

But There Are Some Things You Can’t Sugarcoat

As a result, here’s my I-want-to-be-my-kpop-fangirl-self look and it few outtakes:

High Street

All of us have our own taste in music, aren’t we? Some like a distinct genre of music, some just go for songs that made them feel relaxed. And others love songs that made them dance to the beat. Before, it’s absurd for people to support musi with lyrics not of their language. Because for some, they have to be able to understand the lyrics and the meaning of the song before they support and be in love with the song.

As for me, along with the gazillion fangirls and fanboys of Kpop in the world, let’s say, we’re born to espouse K-pop.

What’s Kpop, by the way? Let’s ask the trustee Wikipedia. 🙂

K-pop is an abbreviation of Korean pop or Korean popular music is a musical genre consisting of dance, electronic, electro pop, hip hop, and R&B music originating in South Korea.In addition to music, K-pop has grown into a popular subculture among teenagers and young adults around the world, resulting in widespread interest in the fashion and style of Korean idol groups and singers.

Through the presence of Facebook fan pages, availability on iTunes, Twitter profiles, and music videos on YouTube, the ability of K-pop to reach a previously inaccessible audience via the Internet is driving a paradigm shift in the exposure and popularity of the genre.South Korean popular culture is today serving as a major driver of youth culture all across the Pacific Rim and Eurasia, with special reference toChina, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan and much of Southeast Asia.
At present, I’m madly and extremely LOVE this Kpop girl and boy groups:

Then, what’s cosplay? According to the Wikipedia,

Cosplay  is short for “costume play”,is a type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture centred on role play. A broader use of the term “cosplay” applies to any costumed role play in venues apart from the stage, regardless of the cultural context.

Favorite sources include manga and anime, comic books, video games and films. Any entity from the real or virtual world that lends itself to dramatic interpretation may be taken up as a subject. Inanimate objects are given anthropomorphic forms and it is not unusual to see genders switched, with women playing male roles and vice versa. There is also a subset of cosplay culture centered around sex appeal, with cosplayers specifically choosing characters that are known for their attractiveness and/or revealing (even explicit) costumes.

Cosplay costumes vary greatly and can range from simple outfits to highly detailed “mecha” suits. Cosplay is generally considered different from Halloween and Mardi Gras costume wear as the intention is to accurately replicate a specific character, rather than to reflect the culture and symbolism of a holiday event. As such, when in costume, cosplayers will often seek to adopt the affect, mannerisms and body language of the characters they portray (with “out of character” breaks). The characters chosen to be cosplayed may be sourced from any movie, TV series, book, comic book, video game or music band but the practice of cosplay is most often associated with replicating anime and manga characters.

Most cosplayers create their own outfits, referencing images of the characters in the process. In the creation of the outfits, much time is given to detail and quality, thus the skill of a cosplayer may be measured by how difficult the details of the outfit is and how well they have been replicated. Because of the difficulty of some details and materials to replicate, cosplayers often educate themselves in crafting specialties such as textiles, sculpture, face paint, fiberglass, fashion design, woodworking and other such use of materials in the effort to render the look and texture of a costume accurately.Almost all cosplayers wear wigs in conjunction with their outfit in order to further improve the resemblance to the character. This is especially necessary for anime and manga characters who often have unnaturally coloured and uniquely styled hair.

And I bet almost all of you might be wondering why I brought out Kpop & Cosplay out of nowhere, right? Well, it’s because my peg for my Kpop-ish high-street look are Lookbook-er, Luanna P and PBB Teens Big Winner, Myrtle Gail Sarrosa (#3 Top Cosplayer in the PH).
And as for Kpop’s case, oh well! I just wanted to simply be the Kpop fangirl that I am 🙂
