The 4th Philippine KPOP Convention

I love Kpop. People who know me in real life know that single fact. Even the ones who follow this blog a long time now (if there is really one other than my close friends) have been given the idea that one of the sources of my happiness is Kpop. Yeah, that seems shallow but I will always be proud that I love it. And I can shout that to the whole wide, crazy world.

This December 29, 2012, I will definitely go to the 4th Philippine Kpop Convention which will be held at the PICC FORUMS 1-3. This is the kind of event which fanatics of Kpop would want to attend. A lot of things are offered in this once-a-year activity that will make fans feed their hunger enough for fangirling. :) I only discovered this cool event last year. I planned to go but decided not to few days before it happened. I just found no one to come with me and I didn't want to come alone. But now, whether I can find a companion or not to go there, I will come. I just realized that having a friend with me is not really a big deal. Of course, it would be more fun when you have someone to talk with, to share your fangirling thoughts with. But when you get there, I believe that you would forget that you come alone simply because it would be extremely FUN.

What I am most excited about with this event is seeing the groups, A. CIAN and F. CUZ. OMG! It would be the greatest thing to culminate my year. Ever since I saw BEAST in person years ago, I have developed a kind of obsession to see every KPOP group that exists. Actually, I only checked the said two groups after learning that they will be guesting the convention. My impression about them? OMG! They're so good looking especially the group, A. CIAN! Seul Gi, Jang Ung Sik and Sanghyun are soooo cute(kyeopta)! The sight of their faces makes me drool!hehehe. The thought of seeing them soon just gives me something to look forward to for next week. Also, I like their music. F. CUZ's Wanna be your love just stole my heart. It is sooo nakakakilig and let me use the word CUTE again! Yeah, I love cute stuff. And I think that's the main reason why I ended up loving kpop. 

Another thing that excites me for the convention is the Kpop merchandise! Waaahh.. I want to buy a tumbler with the image of L(Infinite) or Dongwoo(Infinite) or Daehyun(BAP), a shirt, a keychain, posters and even a calendar if there is one. I might even buy an album. :) Weeehhh.. I'm so excited.

Are you going too?

The 4th Philippine KPOP Convention is sponsored by the best telecommunications in the Philippines (Yes, I've been using it since I got a cellphone. And I never experienced using other networks.) which is GLOBE, Standard Appliance (the brand of our stove), Pond's, Basic House, Liole and a lot more!

Favorite Blogger Got Married

One of my favorite bloggers, Patty Laurel, is now Patty Laurel-Filart. She exchanged vows with her soul mate last November 22, 2012. Their wedding video just got posted today on her blog. I almost cried while watching it. And I just have to share it here with you because it is something that a lot of us should see. :)) 

"Who would have thought I would end up marrying the little white boy in the next classroom. All of those years we've spent crossing paths in the hallway, completely oblivious to one another was all part of God's amazing plan." - Patty
I also would like to have that kind of love story, starting with: Who would have thought....

Yay, congrats Mrs. Patty. Although you have entered a new chapter of your life, I hope that that wouldn't stop you from blogging because I really love your blog. You're funny and cheesy at the same time, and those are the two things that I really like about you. ;)

If you guys do wonder how I was able to chance upon her worth-reading blog almost two years ago, it was through her ex-bf, Atom Araullo. I was wondering who was his girlfriend that time so I googled it. Then the google search engine led me to her blog. After reading few of her posts, I instantly followed her. Having read almost all the things she has written, I think I know her a lot already.

By the way, it was my first time hearing her voice. I was surprised by it because it was not the voice that I've been imagining. You see, every time I read her blog, I imagined that she was just talking to me like a friend, thus I invented a voice of hers. XD

Facts About Vampires According to Vampire Diaries

Vampires are scary creatures. No matter how good looking they are, as being depicted by Twilight Saga and Vampire Diaries, the fact that they feed on human blood would vanish any romantic feeling that we'd possibly hold. Or is it just me? Could you possibly fall for someone like Edward, Stefan or Damon? I know that they're hot and have the looks that would leave you speechless, but hey, that doesn't change the fact about their nature that every human being is their most desirable prey. Once they lose control, driven by the urge to taste the most delicious thing they've ever known, which is blood, you might end up being dead. Yeah, if I'd be given a chance to take Bella's and Elena's position, I'd still choose my pretty boring life. At least, I won't have to deal with vampires. :p

What if they are among us, walking, laughing, working, fangirling, studying? Could we recognize them? And what if the things about them are exactly the ones being described in Vampire Diaries? Because maybe, the author of that book-turned-tv-series, knows a vampire personally.

Let me enumerate to you the facts about vampires according to Vampire Diaries. With their skills as well as limitations, would you want to be one of them or would you be thankful that you are a human being? Let us see.

1.) Not friends with the sun. Vampire Diaries says that Twilight got it wrong. Vampires don’t glow under the sun; they burn and would eventually kill them if they prolong their exposure. But there’s a way to prevent that reaction. They wear something so that they can be one of us rain or shine.

 2.) Live with several generations. They are practically immortal. The causes of death of mankind as of this generation are accidents, illnesses, crimes and old age. Good for them, they are immune to that. They don’t get cancer. They aren't infected with AIDS. They could be hit by a ten-wheeler truck and still live. They could be stabbed many times by a knife and still breathe.

3.) No need for botox. Wrinkles? Ageing skin? Na-ah, they don’t have that problem. They could live on this planet for a century or even a millennium and still wear that young skin. Isn’t that cool? They could save a lot of money from expensive cosmetics and plastic surgeries. You’re envious now?

4.) So fast like a speed of light, so strong like Superman. They run so fast, they could win a gold medal in the Olympics in track and field. They are so strong, weight-lifting would be a piece of cake for them.  

5.) Never underestimate a wood. They might never be killed by a bullet but stab a wooden stake at their heart and sure thing they would be dead. Wood is one of their worst nightmares. They could also be dead with a fire. Trap them in a burning house and their immortality would end. Still, there are exceptions. There is this kind of vampires that can only be killed by a specific wood, yes, not just an ordinary wood. And these vampires couldn’t be ended by a fire. They are known as the Originals.

6.) No human beings, no vampires. Vampires need us because our blood is their food. They could consume the blood of animals but nothing tastes like heaven like the human blood. So they still prefer it. Also, our blood is the only thing that turns their strengths at its utmost potential. They are most powerful if they drink our precious blood.

7.) Shut up! They can hear you. Every vampire has the ability to hear sounds from quite a distance. So before you spill a secret to a close friend, make sure that no vampire is around. Because they may near or far, they can absolutely hear what you’re talking about. They can’t read your mind, though, so that’s a big relief.

8.) They can manipulate you. One of their abilities that I really find fascinating is the manipulation. They will look you to the eye and say things like, “You’ll forget what just happened.” And then you forget what you have just witnessed.  When they say to leave the town, you would leave. Whatever they’ll command you, you just can’t say no.  

9.) Vervain is your weapon. Vervain is a plant which is another nightmare of a vampire. They will burn if they’ll touch it. You could prevent them from manipulating you by drinking the juice of the said plant. Their manipulation just wouldn’t work if you’re drinking the vervain juice. Also, if you have them in your system, your blood would be a poison to them. So they will never feed from you.

10.) Don’t invite them in.  A vampire can never enter a house unless the owner of that shelter invited them in. There is an invisible shield in every home that would prevent every vampire to enter. But once an owner mistakenly invited that vampire to come in, they can forever go in and out of that shelter whether they are welcomed or not.

11.) The older, the stronger. If two vampires fight, one is a hundred years old and the other is a thousand years old, we could say that there’s an 80% chance that the older one would win. He would most probably win because as a vampire ages, he/she becomes stronger and more powerful. 

12.) Every emotion is magnified. The emotion level between humans and vampires is highly different. Happiness, anger, disgust, fear, sadness and surprise are more intense when it comes to vampires. This is one of the reasons why they become scary. It is hard to control what they're feeling because it's too large it ends up consuming them.

So what? Would you consider sharing this Earth with them? Would you want to be one of them?

P.S. There are still a lot of things that you would want to know about vampires. I suggest that you watch Vampire Diaries. The story is really good, that's an assurance. :)

Bon Chon's Tissue. :p
I was supposed to eat at Manang's Chicken at Katipunan for my super late brunch, say 2:30pm. But the said food establishment was a bit far by walking from where I withdrew my week's allowance. So I thought of other store instead and Bon Chon came into mind. When it comes to chicken, I will always prefer Manang's over Bon Chon. Yet the latter food chain has a very yummy fish fillet in their menu and that was what I was after from them. I happened to taste it just last month when a friend made me try it. It was really delicious, way better than the spicy chicken wings that I ordered. My first taste was dipped with garlic sauce, yet I chose the extra spicy flavor earlier thinking that it would be yummier. I was wrong. I wasn't able to enjoy what I ate because it was overly hot. I couldn't taste the fish. All I could sense was how hot it was. I suddenly got a runny nose and I was already sweating. Kulang na lang, iiyak ako dun. Next time, I would order the garlic sauce and not that over extra spicy one! Nevertheless, I got full so there wasn't much regrets. :p
Then I went to Fully Booked  which was just in the same building with Bon Chon. Of course, I didn't have any intentions to buy a book. I still have several novels that I still haven't read. I just wanted to enter the store because silly may it seem to you, but the sight of new books in a shelf gives some kind of bliss to me. I saw a lot of books that I've been wanting to read. If only I were rich, I would definitely buy them all.
I wasn't supposed to, but still I bought one. It was not part of my budget this week because as you can see, this was an impulsive buying. I didn't feel bad though, since I always believe that purchasing a book is a good investment.

I chose The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo among the many possible good reads because I heard that its movie adaptation was good, so I presumed that the book was also good. It might be even better, you know. Also, I miss reading mystery novels.

That's my solo adventure at Katipunan Avenue, friends. You might ask why this post is entitled, Half-crazy. Well, while I was eating at Bon Chon, the song Half-Crazy by Side-A was played. And I thought that the song would be a good blog title. It could give mystery. That's just the reason behind it. A random, beautiful title for a random blog post.
