 All I remember from my standards 8 years ago is this:
"Basta kaya niya akong kantahan."

hahaha! That is still true, I guess. ^^
As I was reading through a friend's answers to this I was thinking, whatever my answers will be, it will all boil down to two things: whether it's a negotiable or a non-negotiable trait.
I guess physical stuff are negotiable. For others, I just try to explain the allowable criteria. hahaha.
So let's see, shall we?

Anyway, that won't prevent me from greeting him! ^_^

Which means Tokyo Dome concert! Which means adventure day for a certain friend in Japan right now. I do hope he remembers! And I hope he won't have a hard time finding the venue, or waiting in line amidst the fangirls. I'm kinda excited, but I don't intend to remind him or something hahaha :P I guess I'll know by this weekend? Or on Monday at the latest if he survives. *crosses fingers*

Today in the taxi going to the office I played A.RA.SHI in my ipod to commemorate the 11th anniversary of their single debut. I was smiling like an idiot the whole time. ♥♥♥

Thank you, Arashi. Especially for the past year. Somehow thoughts of you make the most painful moments in my life hurt a lot less. Please continue being the most amazing group that we all fell deeply in love with.

Happy 11th Anniversary!!!

Thank you for truly being my happy pill. <3

So I mentioned that I screencapped the awesome VS Arashi episode aired on Nino's birthday.
(Warning, though. May contain spoilers for some games. And you will appreciate some caps only if you're watching Kaibutsu-kun. XD)
Just like recent VS Arashi episodes, we see Nino in another horrible embarrassing weird outfit XD
nino intro
Tank top, yellow-green floral vest, and hat. He also has on yellow-green pants and bright pink shoes. XD
on to the picspam!Collapse )

You see I took so many screencaps. But what really made me do this picspam are the next caps.

Do you notice something? I do. ^^

2 more caps with a clearer viewCollapse )

If you think you see what I see, please do let me know and we could flail about it. hahaha ^_^
No its not the outfit. Definitely. :D

Crazy shopping day.
+ Was at the mall with my mom at around 11am.
+ Shopped for OL clothes, including shoes.
+ Was joined by my sisters. The shopping continued.
+ An outburst just because of a bag
+ Ended up buying so much more stuff than what was planned/expected.
+ Got home at around 9pm.

I predict that I will have difficulty walking tomorrow. (My poor psoriatic-arthritic ankles huhu)XD


I LOVE YOU!!! ♥♥♥

So would anyone know what to call the part of the arm from the elbows down to the hands? (I'm a bit confused. *_*). For the purpose of this entry, I will call it "lower arm". haha!

Lately, I have been noticing this particular person's lower arm. I always love it when his sleeves just exposes his lower arm. ♥ His hands also get bonus points for being so...manly. ♥♥♥

exhibit A:

more!LowerArms + a game?Collapse )



Sorry for the randomness. Just stress relief, I guess? :P
Only six more working days. So much to do, so little time. huhu DX
On the other hand, I am now excited!!! :P

EDIT: For the purpose of the "game", comments are now screened until I reveal who guessed it right :P

EDIT2: Unscreened the comments! So if you read you'd know whose forearm I'm referring to. :P Feel free to still comment or whatever. Tell me too, if you knew it was him without reading the comments :P

Thanks to the free internet here in our hotel, I can still check lj for Arashi updates :P

So day 1 just ended. It started pretty early, with me getting up at dawn to finish packing. Then we overestimated the traffic and left Katipunan at 830ish. We reached NAIA at 930, and found out that TG counters open at 1130am. (Which means we were 2hours early for check-in. lol) So there, waited for an hour and a half consuming most of my iTouch's battery life to Wifi. When I had no other site to go to, I decided to go back to reading the Gantz Manga online (This is basically because of the news that Nino already finished filming Gantz :P Too bad no preview yet of the suit hmph.). We boarded the plane at around 230pm, which means we spent about 5hrs just waiting. XD

So what amazes me is how Japanese-friendly Thai Airways is. Maybe because they had this promo going to Osaka or something, (and their monthly magazine featured Cherry blossoms in Osaka) but in the selection of things you can listen to while on board, there was this "channel" that played jpop. Well I assumed it was jpop because most of it sounded like the anime theme songs that I've heard of and the words were definitely Japanese. (haha, blame it on the ear that mostly listens to Arashi songs :p) So I tried listening to it, hoping they'd play Arashi. Sometimes I'd switch the audio to New Moon, which was played on the screen on board but once in a while I'd switch it back to jpop channel. And lo and behold, when I once switched it back, Arashi's "Move Your Body" was playing!!!! So I quickly told my sisters to listen to that channel (since they are Arashi fans too) and we just listened till the song ended. ^^ And that was the highlight of my flight to BKK. :P

Tonight we met our mom (who came to BKK earlier for a seminar) and we ate authentic Thai dishes like Tom Yum soup, Papaya Salad and Pandan Chicken. Spicy and yummy ^^

Tomorrow, sightseeing starts!!! (And maybe some shopping too! :D)

I had dinner with cheeriola , istariray and lundaginmobaby   :)  Well markandrewmateo  was there at the start but he had to leave early before dinner came. Then later, nesza  joined us. Wow, its amazing how all of us have lj accounts :P

Its been a very loooong time since I was in the company of all girls (my mom and sisters don't count, btw. lol). For more than a year now I have been hanging out with guys, especially in the office. I am the only girl in our project. And I eat lunch with four guys (yes this includes JR. hahaha). Some friends have this joke that they are the F4 and I am Shan Chai (or Makino, if you think in terms of HanaDan). And I would secretly assign who's who. hahahaha! :P

So back to my point. I have always been surrounded by guys every day so its refreshing to be in the company of women. After dinner we were walking around and spotted the mini-tiange in Eastwood and looked around. There were cute vintage necklaces, some all-in-one pack make-up kit, and a lot of bargain clothes. While shopping is not really my kind of thing, its something that I get to appreciate when I am with girl friends. I know its kinda lame that we ended up just hanging out in a coffee place and reading back issues of Cosmo and Candy, but the experience of just being with them was fun. Of course there was some girl talk every now and then, which adds to the perks of being with just all girls. ;)

So yah, I hope to hang out with all of you again next time :D


- I got instant tears in my eyes when I heard one of the most touching stories ever. *_* I do believe I would be crying buckets too if I got to watch that.

- Saw the trailer for I Missed You Like Crazy. It seems like a good story. But why did I get the feeling that the trailer already revealed all of the plotline plus the ending?

- At his work, some Japanese visitors came to oversee the project that my boyfriend is part of. As part of a normal conversation, my boyfriend was asked what were his hobbies, does he like anime or manga?
boyfriend: My girlfriend likes boybands, Japanese boybands.
Japanese-san1(older visitor): boybands? Ah, Japanese idols?
boyfriend: ah, yes! They sing and dance, you know, like Arashi?
Japanese-san2(one that is a bit younger, around 30's): Ah! Arashi! I know them, but I don't watch them. Do you watch them?
boyfriend: My girlfriend forces me to watch them!

LOL. When I found out they knew about Arashi I wanted to squeal and go ~kya~~~ but tried to stop myself. hahahaha! I did not really expect them to know Arashi since I have this image of them being the type to stay in the office for 12 hours a day (or more). At least they know Arashi!!!!!!!!

from matsumania 

Comment and I'll give you a letter, then you have to list ten people/places/things you love that begin with that letter, afterwards post it on your journal and fill out letters of your own.

I did this meme years ago... I got the letter S, which was fairly easy. This time I got the letter K! With the exception of the first item on the list, each one of those took some time to think about. (I even sought help from a website that lists all the words that start with K, just to jar my memory. LOL.)

the letter K...Collapse )


- I was so happy last Tuesday when I got to buy some cute rubber spatulas and a leveling spatula from Saizen. Now it will be easier to scrape all of the batter off the mixing bowl :D

- I am now 2 3 (err, maybe more?) shades darker than I originally am. This is due to my 3x a week (T-TH-S) phototherapy sessions. On the other hand, this is the fourth week now that I get to have half days on Tuesdays and Thursdays!

- Found out you can get a Student's Permit (for driving) in a little more than an hour. In fairness, that's fast!

- Yes I was shocked by that GANTZ picture. And the girl was even glad to do that? Very daring. Oh well. I might be rooting for the other girl (the one I previously posted about) since she does not seem so aggressive :p

- Why is there no news yet about the filming of Ohoku? I thought this was to be released this year?

Watched episode 9 of Minami-kun no Koibito. I was surprised to get to hear and know the meaning of some lines from the "famous" song "Tsunami" by Southern All Stars. (Plus, its Nino who's singing!!! *plus Fukada Kyoko but nevermind her XD*) I wonder if there are any audio rip buried somewhere in the fandom... Or at the least, I want to listen to the original version!

a great song + a heartfelt scene = my tears flowingCollapse )

I know everyone in the fandom (well, at least in the Filipinas de AMNOS thread in aibakaland) is still celebrating Sho-chan's birthday, but I just want to get this out.

My dearest ate bought Volume 1 of Ōoku, one of the two movies that Nino will star in. I got to read it last weekend and I got the pleasure of imagining Nino playing the part of Mizuno Yunoshin. I don't know how to describe the character, but my heart went doki doki towards him. <3 The manga itself also has its touch of humor so it is an easy read for me :) I really can't wait to see this movie! (Which I know will still be a few months after the actual screening date, since I can only rely on the time when a DVD is released T.T)

A while ago I also saw the news clip about GANTZ, the other movie Nino is starring in. They announced the actress that will play the heroine in the movie. (She's Yoshitaka Yuriko, the kinda creepy girl in Love Shuffle, who was also in Tokyo Dogs). I haven't read the manga nor watched the anime, so I don't really know the character of the girl. All I know is that she will be the girlfriend of the character of Nino! From what I see in the news clips it looks like it shows how they met and got together(which the time frame is way before Nino gets to fight aliens)? Ah, I can't wait. Its a bit painful to know that this will be shown in 2011, which is still a long long time. Not to mention the fact like the one in Ohoku which I mentioned above T.T

Now, I am wondering, since Nino in GANTZ has a girlfriend, and Nino in Ohoku also has a girl (so to speak), does this mean that I get to have my wish to watch Nino in a love story? Well, I guess not exactly, but its as close as I can get and I'm happy with that. Actually, just making me all doki-doki during the movies is enough. ♥

finally got to post!

I remember the first time I encountered you was when my sister told me that you were her favorite, and then made me watch that segment in AnS where you thought up of things to say to a girl and then you always failed XD.

Soon I was to discover the cuticle that is Ariake Koichi and then got to know Mimura Takuya through Taro, and by then I was way past the point of no return. So yes, partly, you have influenced my going towards rainbowland.

So to you, Mr. rapper, newscaster, yattenaiyatterman, who is truly the prince, always-polite-in-jweb-and-always-starting-with-"Sakurai Sho desu," who always raises his hand thinking that its the situation where everybody raises his hand, who organizes where the group will eat, who is oh-so-sexy and handsome with his perfectbody, thank you.
Let us now sing!

Happy Birthday Sho-chan!!!
Yappa Sukiyanen!

This deserves a special entry.

I first came across the story when news broke that this would be Aiba-chan's first lead role. I read the first few chapters and was instantly touched by its story. I was so excited for Aiba-chan that he was given a really nice story. Plus his look then really suits the character. I even watched the first episode through KeyHole, at the same time viewers in Japan watched it. It was raw, without subs, and what I understood were the similarities that the scenes had with the manga. While watching, I instantly fell deeply in love with it. Now that it has ended, I truly applaud Aiba-chan, Momoka-chan, Yuuka-san and the other supporting characters for truly tugging at my heart and making me cry buckets at almost every episode. And as expected, I cried the most while watching the last two episodes.

A sort-of review/reflection...and some spoilers for Eps.9&10Collapse )

Happy Birthday dear Aiba-chan,
Happy Birthday to you~~

May you stay kind and caring, no matter what the situation is. May your heart stay big and humble, and continue to share your stories and thoughts with us. Also, thank you for always trying to answer whatever question a fan asks through your radio show. It is through this that we truly get to know Aiba-chan. Thank you for exuding so much genki-ness that it overflows and affects the other members. In many ways, you truly are a genius. :)
