Not with Thine Enemy


Himura Kenshin and Yukishiro Tomoe from Rurouni Kenshin


Former adversaries...

One holds the blade of vengeance...


A failed vendetta...


...ends in a tragic romance. 

Yeah, I'm Just a Teenage Dirtbag Baby

I opened a box, thinking that it was a treasure box. But as time passed by, I realized it was a Pandora's box.

Damn, here comes regret. Stupidity comes along, ripping my brain into fragments.

I wish I never opened it. I wish I never found it at all, nor had the courage to open it.

Ugh! Now I thought, what would be more tormenting? Opening the box or not opening it?  I dunno, perhaps I should've opted for the latter.

This is so wrong, me, being bold about doing the wrong things, and being scared when it comes to the right ones. They're all right, I never was a grown-up. In their eyes, I'm always a kid, someone driven by Id alone.

I guess they're right, cos I can't prove that I'm not.

Maling Akala

Tagalog mode ulit, hindi pa nare-replenish ang English ko. Haay, badtrip! Naistorbo na naman ng kapitbahay namin ang mahimbing kong tulog. Ang aga-aga nagvi-videoke na! -_-; Siguro may birthday ngayon sa kanila. Sana naman maaga silang matapos mamaya kasi maaga na nga silang nagsimula. Anyway, let's hit the topic na.

Maling akala - maraming nabibiktima n'yan, lalo 'pag hindi ka masyadong nag-iisip. Hahaha. Karaniwan sa mga maling akala ay yung mga natutunan natin ay yung mga na-experience natin nung bata pa tayo. For example, yung kisses, nanganganak daw. Basta daw ilagay mo sa lalagyan na may bulak at nakatago, preferably sa mga drawer at cabinet daw . Kung gusto mong ipagyabang sa school ilagay mo sa pencil case. For best results, haluan daw ng polbo or alcohol. Haha. Nabiktima din ako nito. Tsk. Sino nga ba'ng nagpauso nito? At ang tanong, nanganganak nga ba? Sabi nung iba kong classmates oo daw, malamang nagpapayabangan lang yung mga yun. Yung akin nga hindi dumami eh! Sinunod ko naman lahat ng instructions.

Aroma/fragrance beads a.k.a "Kisses"
At isa pa, humahaba daw ang buhok ng Barbie kapag ginugupitan. Yung sakin nakalbo na kakagupit. :|

S'yempre, di ko makakalimutan 'to:
May lalabas na train/eroplano/whatever sa sugat mo pag ginalaw mo.
LOL. Ang sarap maging bata ulit. ^_^

Pero habang tumatanda tayo, nagiging seryoso na ang mga epekto ng mga maling akala. Madalas, di mo aakalaing ikaw ay magaakala ng mga maling akala. :D

#1 na malaking akala - "Akala ko gusto n'ya din ako eh."
Oo, maging optimistic ka. Pero 'wag kang feeler. Hahahaha. Hindi porket lagi ka n'yang sinesendan ng banat/love quotes eh ibig sabihin type ka n'ya. Malay mo GM lang yon. Lalo na sa FB, madami ng nangyaring ganyan. Nag-like or nagcomment lang s'ya status mo na para/patama sa kanya ibig sabihin nagets na n'ya ang nais mong iparating. Baka naka-relate lang s'ya di ba? O kaya ganado lang s'ya magpipindot at magtatype.
*Sorry pessimistic lang talaga ako

#2 - "Akala ko maganda/masarap/effective eh, etc... (blah-blah-blah)"
Simply means, na-disappoint ka. Madalas ko tong nae-experience, lalo na sa pagkain. Dahil nga isa akong gourmand, kapag kayang i-afford eh ita-try ko yung pagkain. Di na ko magbabanggit ng brand/resto,etc. baka mademanda ako eh. Haha. Basta yun na yun. Ganon din ang expression ko lalo sa mga products na bibilin ko tulad ng nose pore strips. Maalis daw lahat ng black/whiteheads sa ilong mo. Sinungaling, konti nga lang naalis eh. Gagastos ka para magpa-facial na sobrang sakit, hindi ko talaga mapigilang wag maiyak.

Norwegian Wood, Japanese movie
Isa pa 'to, akala ko maganda. Di ko talaga nagets ang story, ang gulo. Tas nakatulog pa ako. Di ko alam kung sino talaga ang magka-partner dito. Baka akala pa ng kapitbahay nanood ako ng porn. Tsk. Ang mura kong isipan -_-

'Yun lang, tama na. Wala na kong maisip. LOL

Ang Pusa, Bow!

Paano ko ba sasabihin? Ito ang unang Tagalog post ko, naubusan na kasi ako ng English. Akala ko unlimited eh. Tulad ng mga nauna kong post, nonsense din ang isang to. So, kung may importante kang gagawin, wag ka nang mag-aksaya ng oras para basahin to. Pero kung tambay ka lang din na katulad ko, sige try mong pagtyagaan.

Puyat na naman ako, kakaisip, kakaisip ng kung ano-ano. Mahirap talaga 'pag nakaugalian mong mag-daydream, kahit gabi na ginagawa mo pa rin.

Haay. Naisip ko lang, ang hirap magpaamo ng pusa. Oo, napakahirap lalo na pag pusang kalye, yung tipong tignan mo lang tatakbo na bigla. Pero kahit ganon, gusto ko pa rin silang hinahabol, lalo na yung mga sobrang cute at taba. Madalas, hindi ko sila naabutan, syempre pusa yon, mabilis tumakbo at kayang umakyat kung san-san. Teka, sinabi kong ninja ako di ba? Kalokohan lang yon.

Mas gusto ko ang mga pusa kaysa sa aso. Nakakairita kasi ang mga aso, laging nakabuntot at nakadepende sayo. Mamamatay sila kapag hindi mo pinakain, hindi katulad ng mga pusa na kayang humanap ng pagkain sa sarili nila. Saka yung aso, mahilig manghabol, yung pusa, ikaw ang hahabol. Kumbaga, pag napagod ka ng habulin ito, pwede kang tumigil na lang. Pero kapag ikaw ang hinahabol, no choice na kailangan mong tumakbo para hindi maabutan. Ano'ng connect? -_-

Ngunit, sapagkat, datapuwa't, hindi lahat ng pusa ay mailap. Meron kang matatagpuan na maamo, sila pa mismo ang unang lalapit sayo at maglalambing. Tulad na lang nung pusa sa Barj, bigla mo na lang mararamdaman na may humihimas sa binti mo. Sabi nila sign of affection daw ng mga pusa yun, pero hindi. Sign yun na pag-aari ka nila 'pag ginagawa nila 'yun.

Naalala ko yung unang pusang napaamo ko, sobrang ilap n'ya. Bago 'ko makalapit sa kanya ilang kalmot at kagat ang natamo ko. Buti nga hindi ako nagka-rabies. Minsan mahirap din s'yang pakainin, di naman sa choosy s'ya sa pagkain, siguro di pa n'ya ko pinagkakatiwalaan. Di rin nagtagal naging alaga ko s'ya at madalas na s'yang umuuwi sa bahay. Kaya lang, dumating ang panahon na nalagutan s'ya ng hininga. T_T

Malungkot, akala ko hindi na ako makakalimot (oha, pwedeng pang fliptop). Sabi nila, time heals the wounds of past. Ang drama, para lang sa isang pusa kung ano-ano ang nasasabi ko. Ano'ng magagawa ko? Na-attach s'ya ng sobra sa 'kin eh.

Gusto ko rin ulit magkaroon ng pusa, this time sabi ko yung imported naman. Haha. Para lagi lang s'yang nasa loob ng bahay namin at hindi gumagala kung saan-saan. S'yempre di ko rin makukuha yun ng libre, yung pusang gusto ko nabibili sa halagang 5K. Pambihira, pinakamura pa yun ah. Pero sabi ko wag na lang, hindi kaya ng isang dukhang katulad ko ang mag-alaga ng Persian cat. :(


So, sinubukan ko ulit magpaamo ng ibang pusa. Iba ang isang 'to, mukhang maamo pero parang mas mailap pa sa tigre. Sa ibang tao maamo s'ya pero sa akin hindi. Bakit kaya? Naalala ko eto yung pusang binalibag ko ng tsinelas dahil inaagawan n'ya ng pagkain yung pusa ko dati. Sabi ko sorry na (as if namang naiintindihan n'ya ko). Ayun, minsan bumibisita s'ya sa bahay namin pero di rin nagtatagal. Promise, di ko na s'ya sasaktan uli at aalagaan ko s'yang mabuti. Haay. Sana maging alaga ko din s'ya sa balang araw.

Scary :(


Bagay naman yung kanta di ba? :D

I Swear This Time I Mean It

Mayday Parade - I Swear This Time I Mean It


Oh Florida, please be still tonight
Don't disturb this love of mine
Look how she's so serene
You've gotta help me out
And,
I want to keep her dreaming
It's my one wish, I won't forget this
If luck is on my side tonight
My clumsy tongue will make it right
And wrists that touch, it isn't much
But it's enough
To form imaginary lines

Forget your scars
We'll forget mine

The hours change so fast
Oh God, please make this last

'Cause I'm outdated, overrated
Morning seems so far away

So I'll sing a melody
And hope to God she's listening
Sleeping softly while I sing
and I'll be your memories
Your lullaby for all the times
Hoping that my voice could get it right

Could get it RIGHT

You could CRUSH me
Please DON'T crush ME
'Cause baby I'm a dreamer for sure
And,
And I'll sing a melody
And hope to God she's listening
Sleeping softly while I sing
and I'll be your memories
Your lullaby for all the times
Hoping that my voice could get it right

A Penny For My Thoughts

Overthinking = Oversleeping

I'd love to succumb to slumber, but my brain just couldn't stop thinking. Closed my eyes, hugged SpongeBob (my body pillow), turned sideways, but then I opened my eyes again. What the heck was I thinking? Then, I realized it's just the same thing, over and over again.

*sigh* When will I get the right amount of sleep?

I went to bed at 00:30 after watching a movie with my brother. Couldn't sleep, I plugged the earphones into my ears and turned my iPod on.


She ran away in her sleep 
and dreamed of 
Para-para-paradise, Para-para-paradise, Para-para-paradise
Every time she closed her eyes

Coldplay - Paradise

Wish that's what happens every time I do the same :I

*change playlist*

Metallica - Ride The Lightning

Ugh, couldn't sleep more! Who said Metallica will rock you to sleep?  -_-;

*2 hours have passed*
Damn, I'm still awake.

Maybe if thinking alone could burn calories, I would have lost my extra pounds. LOL

A Fantasy but Reality

I've been a Final Fantasy fan since I've played Final Fantasy VIII. This series is the most memorable for me because it's my first "Final Fantasy" game.


Yeah, I'm a sucker for video game romance. 
Squall Leonhart, FFVIII's protagonist

I've dreamed of having a prince charming too, and yeah, it's Squall. Although entirely fictional, he never failed to give me frisson when I was playing FFVIII, especially his scenes with Rinoa. I love the outer space rescue scene, the most romantic! Obviously, I didn't spend my adolescent years getting hooked into teenage romantic movies and TV shows. Anyway, where art thou my Squall? :D

Seifer Almasy, Squall's archrival, one of the game's antagonists.
At first, Seifer's my favourite, but because I only get to use him once in the game, Squall has become my favourite. I like his weapon "Hyperion" than Squall's. He's belligerent but way cooler than Seymour. Wished he was paired with Quistis ^_^

Rinoa Heartilly, Squall's inamorata and Seifer's ex-flame.
Yup, you read it right, a love triangle. Wished they've at least shown a flashback of Rinoa and Seifer's relationship. Childish, but yeah, uh, she's pretty and too damn overrated. I had her in my team, along with Squall and Quistis. No choice, I find the other three (Zell, Selphie, Irvine) more annoying. 

Quistis Trepe, Squall's instructor
I prefer Quistis than Rinoa. She's a child prodigy, at 18 years of age, she's become the youngest instructor in Balamb Garden. Despite those wonderful characteristics, Squall didn't seem to notice her feelings for him. Ugh, whatever, it was then revealed later that it was just sisterly love. By the way, her limit break, Blue Magic, is more useful than Rinoa's Combine and Angel Wing, the latter inflicts decent damage though. I was a student that time, and so I wished to have an instructor like her. Haha.

Err, I ain't gonna talk about the other characters in the game, as if I give a damn about them. LOL. 


Not a fan of love songs, but this one still melts my heart. It's about Julia (Rinoa's mother) and Laguna (Squall's father) and their unspoken feelings. Unfortunately, Laguna was summoned to fulfill his military duties, and the two would never see each other again. Nevertheless, that failed romance is fulfilled through their offsprings. Still a sweet ending. 


"Fithos Lusec Wecos Vinosec", played during Edea's parade in Deling City, also the chant that plays throughout the game, which translates into "icantgoogleitsorry" LOL. It's also part of the other tracks "Liberi Fatali" and "Succession of the Witches".


Ah, I love this track, makes me feel so tranquil. Feels like I'm in the seventh heaven. 


This is my favourite track, I prefer the piano version though, feels more solemn and poignant. If I were warmhearted, I swear I would cry. It reflect's the party's friendship and hardships when they were young up to the present. 


I'll be here...
Why?
I'll be waiting here...
For what?
I'll be waiting... for you... so...
If you come here...
You'll find me.
I promise.


Whoa, I suddenly felt so nostalgic. 'Til next FF game! :D

5 C's: My Life

Before posting random sh*t stuff, I'd like to start off by giving some f*cks facts about me. Hope you enjoy reading this post and subscribe to my blog as well. :)


1st C: Computer Games 
My first and one and only love, playing video games is something I couldn't live without (seriously). Actually, I have put it on the 1st level of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, along with the physiologic ones. Label me an addict if you like, I won't deny it. My penchant for video games, anime, and manga started when I was a little kid, when family computer, Sega, and Nintendo dominated the video game world. It continued when I reached elementary, where I received Sony's greatest gift to humanity, the PlayStation. If you ask me which video games have consumed my sleepless nights for years, that would be Tekken and Final Fantasy. My cousin and I like Tekken so much that we will cut classes and skip lunch just to have our hands on it. We were that enthusiastic to study each and every move of our favourite characters. If that were a subject, I guess we've got the highest grade in the class. LOL. About Final Fantasy, the series that I spent most time and effort playing is Final Fantasy X. You know it, Yuna and Tidus, the famous underwater kissing scene! You can do lots of things in the game (side quests) such as Blitzball and upgrading your character's stats and weapons. Imagine, I've wasted a week playing the thunder-dodging mini-game in order to get the Venus Sigil to activate Lulu's Celestial Weapon - Onion Knight. 



The magical kiss that every gamer who had played this game wished to experience. LOL

YouTube it to watch the whole scene. :D


2nd C: Cats
I really love these feline creatures, particularly the tubby and fluffy ones! My first pet cat was named "Patty". I got this name from a cartoon I was watching when I was 4. She had a tabby coat. She used to sleep next to me on my bed. I couldn't remember how she's gone (I was 4 y/o that time!). Then after few years, I had another pet. She liked to be held in my arms, so I named her "Kilik" (mahilig magpakilik). While Patty got a tabby coat, Kilik's was like a calico - parti-coloured coat. Unfortunately, Kilik left because of old age (T_T). And then "Patreng" came, I became happy again (haha). Although Patreng was not as cuddly as Patty and Jenny, I loved playing with her. The name Patreng was coined from patpatin as she appeared malnourished (despite feeding her everyday). One day, my brother told me that she's dead already. I almost spanked his face for telling such a joke. Weeks have passed, and she didn't return. Okay, D-A-B-D-A, that's life. Luckily, she left two kittens (which are already grown-ups now), Mamba (named after Kobe Bryant) and Patreng II (albeit not patpatin). 


3rd C: Cheese
Cheeeeeeeeessseeee! Although fattening, I can't help myself from consuming cheese in my diet. Now you know why, LOL. My favourite cheesy treats include Cheesecake (Blueberry & Strawberry), Cheesy Pops (Pizza Hut), all-cheese pizza (Barj), grilled cheese, Laughing Cow cheese wedges, strawberry cheesecake Blizzard (DQ), Cheetos Cheddar Jalapeno, to name a few (meaning there's a lot more XD).


Note: Cheesy human beings not included. 


4th C: Coffee
Once a coffee addict, always a coffee addict. Well, not too much now. Before, I used to drink 5 cups of coffee everyday, hopefully I was able to control my caffeine consumption. The coffee blend I love the most is Caramel Macchiato (esp. when you order it at Starbucks  - surreal). Since I can't make one at home, instant coffee would suffice (Great Taste TRIO Cappucino and Nescafe 3in1 Brown 'n Creamy). 


5th C: Canned Goods
LOL. I dunno, but a week won't pass without opening a few cans of processed food. It's hard to have the knowledge but you don't have the skills to apply the former. I love watching culinary shows such as IronChef, MasterChef, Hell's Kitchen, and even Quickfire. It turns out that I'm more of a gourmand than a gourmet. Haha. 


Nonsense? Yeah, I realized that too, after writing out this whole crap. LOL
