Our Rappler Feature: Men Weigh In On Filipina Beauty




Krista asked me if she could get Mark's opinion regarding the "Most beautiful Pinay he knows."
I let them communicate and Mark kept his answer a secret and told me that it was going to be a surprise... and surprised I was! Thank you so much Krista for the article and thank you, Mark for your wonderful answer! I love you! :)

For Her Love of Moon

Everything started with Sailor Moon. 
My love for anime, passion for Japan, my art... you could say my personality is a product of this series. I was so obsessed with Sailor Moon that when Magic Knight Rayearth came, I was so protective of Naoko Takeuchi's creation, I resisted Rayearth and literally hated it for copying my beloved anime. Haha! I would dream about Usagi transforming in front of Mamoru, Princess Serenity, Chibi Moon, Pegasus and debated whether Uranus and Neptune were more than just friends (ehermYURIeherm). I drew Usagi a hundred times until I perfected her hair, eyes, dress and accessories. Needless to say, I wished of having my very own Mamoru in the future...and I think I did. 

After listening to The Moon Song and watching the movie Her, I was inspired to look back and reflect on my inner romantic and where it all began. And this is where it took me, a compilation of songs about the Moon, each signifying a phase in my life. Let's go back to the start.



Playlist:
The Moon Song by Karen O
The Killing Moon by Nouvelle Vague
Floating On The Moon by Michelle Shaprow
Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven
To The Moon and Back by Savage Garden
Fly Me To The Moon by Claire (Evangelion Ending)
Blue Moon by Frank Sinatra
Moon River by Andy Williams
A Moonlight Serenade by Platina Jazz (Sailor Moon English Opening)
Aside from the playlist, let me share with you some Sailor Moon Artworks I've collected. 
I am a huge fan of collecting art from the official artbooks of my fave anime.
I used to have diskettes (Yes diskettes), CDs and USB sticks filled with scanlated mangas and anime art because it was so hard to get them in Japan, and I was like what? 8-16?. I even bought most of the Sailor Moon soundtrack in cassettes and CDs from Comic Alley and have memorised almost all of the songs. Adik lang no?
These are recent ones though.
Princess Serenity is just gorgeous!

Dreaming of the Moon.
The moon has recently been huge and golden.

Hurrah For March 2014!

Hello everyone!
I just came home from a lovely dinner with my aunt, uncle and their friends from NZ.
This will be a quick post since I'm down with the flu. Sucks, I know.
March has been especially good to me. Every month this year has been nothing but bliss. 
A lot of things got scratched off my Bucket List (hurrah indeed!!!) Let's begin...

1. The Iron Throne

GoT is the king of television and HBO invaded with the official Iron Throne to remind everyone two weeks before Season 4 aired. Khal Drogo, Joffrey, Cersei and a White Walker were also on hand for a photo op. But, where are my dragons???



2. Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2014

A celebration of free love, acceptance and glamour. What's not to like? The Sydney Mardi Gras welcomes everyone to a street party that brought the biggest smile to my face. Especially as Sydney's lesbian community is smokin' hot.


3. Family

I'm enjoying studying overseas, but I miss my family, particularly when one of my closest relatives has fallen ill.


4. Friends

I am loving being back in Uni! Business School emphasises team work, so I've met an amazing array of quirky and super fun friends! Hello there, Wilson, Sheryl, Maggie and Joe!

5. New Phone
Finally got a new phone and oh! we watched Beethoven's Fifth at the Opera House.

6. Beethoven's Fifth



7. Coriolanus
Er no, it's not yaoi fellow fujoshis. Do not let the title fool you. But it did have some epic BL with Tom Hiddleston! Kiyaaa! For all you other literature buffs, Coriolanus is one of my boyfriend's favourite Shakespeare tragedies for its political overtones, violence and complex revenge. This one screened live from the National Theatre's Donmar Warehouse stage in London. Oh Sydney, even your cinema screens are so cultured!



8. Fbi Social 3rd Birthday
FBi, the legendary independent radio station hosts its Social's 3rd Birthday in the heart of the Cross. We spied some ratchets outside and some salty rigs on the inside, but the best bit was excellent independent rock. It reminds me of our gigs back home!



9. Japanese hair curlers
This is heaven-sent! Tutorial Here: Wavy Hair and Smokey Eyes Tutorial

10. This Manga

11. Joe Tanerla's Painting
21" x 34"
oil OFF canvas
by Jose Ma Tanierla.

I think this is the most awesome painting anyone has done of me. Feel free to contact this award winning (naks) painter from UP Diliman...and also our childhood friend and neighbor. I cannot thank you enough. 


12. Many Firsts
First ID, bank account and health card. Yey!

13. First High Distinction

Sorry but I just have to celebrate my first HD or 1.0 in Phils on my very first essay... My 1st essay luck continued as all of my papers received HDs after this. Making my momma proud!
This is actually a backlog. I know, I know. 
It's been nothing but bliss so far.
Hope this continues.
