Because there's no other way but UP.

I actually remember making these icons last year, but haven't posted anywhere except for my Multiply frontpage (where I've since removed it from). Anyway, appropriate icon post is appropriate. :P

Please forgive me for the horrible text styling. XD 

    
    

Congratulations to the UP Pep Squad for grabbing first place in the UAAP Cheerdance Competition! \m/

In other news, I've been feeling a lot better now. And while my academic life isn't going too well, I somehow feel accomplished for doing other things. Like helping my blockmate with the poster for our course-wide organization, APTS. Harvey was kind of teasing me about being Vice President for Advertising and Communication next year, but eh, I don't think I'm capable enough although my alter ego seems to enjoy the idea a lot. :P


Hm, my editing's improved a lot, I think. XD 

So there, I think I'd like to start being active on Livejournal again. I've been doing a lot of mindless photo and reblog posts on my Tumblr, which I think is beginning to take a toll on my literary side. Well that's lazy blogging for you, kiddies. Besides, I've been backreading all my entries here for the past few days, and hit upon the realization that I can't really abandon this account altogether. Too much memories. ♥

For other things, goodbye to former president Cory Aquino. After reading your speech for Fulbright, my respect for you rose a little higher. You will not be forgotten. :)

Awesome drama is awesome.

Now I know I'm already 24897923502513 years late for this, but I just finished watching Ryuusei no Kizuna yesterday! I was so very, very impressed. The storyline knows not to mock the viewers' intelligence and I'm utterly pleased by that. Hm, wait, this warrants giant text.

Ryuusei no Kizuna is one of the best dramas I've ever seen EVER. 8Dv

I haven't seen a lot, but still. O:

So anyway, it had my brain cells working ALL THE TIME. I'm glad I guessed right most of the time, though. You know, the sudden turn in events? Me and Adrianne were always into serious!discussion mode and pausing our streaming every now and then to think about the probable suspect/who gets caught/whatever. XD

And Kaname Jun = ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

WTHHHH, I died seeing him act like a dork. I mean, I first saw him on RESCUE (yes, I watched RESCUE first *fail*) and seeing him very serious with Katsuragi, I was like, "NOOOO WHO IS THIS I SEE?!?!"

Hm, what else. Ah, I liked it that they didn't focus on the possible love angle between Taisuke and Shizuna--because that would've been kind of wrong (even if they weren't siblings and stuff). They left obvious hints here and there, sappy moments but nothing too heavy. Unlike here, when given that circumstance, dramas tend to swerve to an inappropriate, not to mention liberated, feel of "I WANT TO BED YOU BECAUSE WE'RE NOT SIBLINGS AFTER ALL". Such a sad thing.

So returning to Yukinari and Shizuna... they were just asjkdsahkfsfskl;; I mean, even when I don't write het now I still do like het when I find cute and believable ones. XDv Such an adorable coupling. 8D

Admittedly, even when I initially watched it just to see Ryo's performance, I was definitely awed by Nino. I mean, he can act using just his eyes! It was... somehow scary. And his eyes could turn from an emotion to another really, really quickly! Or portray two different emotions at the same time. I found that fact really awesome. Even when he doesn't put in gestures, his eyes alone tell you exactly what his character is feeling--now that's what you call acting. Now I finally understand what Ryo and Yamapi lacks when it comes to the acting department. D:

On another note, I've started watching 1 Liter of Tears dubbed on one of our local channels. I don't really like how they got straight to the point with the problem of the story, but uh, it can't be helped, I guess, considering the limited timeslot networks allot for their shows. Hm, the voices for the mom, dad, doctor, the friend and the little girl were okay, but Ako's voice is just horrible. D: Haruto's and Aya's are so-so. But the most horrible of all, is well, the freaking theme song and it makes me want to stab the TV every time it plays. "Walang hanggan~" WTEFFF, seriously. ;_______;

The look-alike is gone.

Because I'm feeling just a little bit vain. Um, a one-minute demo cover of ayaka's Meiro. Should I sing the entire song or would that be too ambitious of me? Constructive crit, please. D8

 

For other news, Shakey's!Pi is gone. :'((

We went there last Sunday, with our hopes up that we might see him again, but sadly, he isn't working there anymore. His co-worker told us that he had stopped working part-time to focus (full-time) on his studies. Proves my little theory of him being a working student with a summer job right. But before you grieve, that same co-worker said he'd be working there again during the summer of next year--which means we can stalk him again! :D

EDIT: Something I just remembered. He still visits that Shakey's branch once in a while, according to a colleague. So who knows if you can spot him there. 8Dv

In memory of him (lol), I'm compiling encounter posts, and so far I have two. If you've had an encounter with Shakey's!Pi, please do share a post or so about it.

The above two are f-locked, though, and I don't know how you're going to be able to read these unless the owners allow you access. 8'D

Fic: Balisa

Balisa
Author: takeoutfries 
Word Count: 732
Rating: PG
Characters: Masuda Takahisa, Tegoshi Yuya
Genre: Romance, Humor
Summary: Sadyang hindi maiiwasan ang ganoong pakiramdam.

Author's Notes: My first attempt at writing fanfiction in my native tongue. (Just because I am weird and on a major writer's block) I think it's going to be awkward. I can predict it now. Haha. Written about a year ago, moved from my old journal and backposted.

At iyon nanaman ang hindi niya maipaliwanag na nararamdaman, parang mga paruparong nagliliparan sa loob ng kanyang tiyan. )

Fic: Inversed Fairytales

Inversed Fairytales
Author: takeoutfries 
Word Count: 621
Rating: G
Characters: NEWS
Genre: Humor/Crack
Summary: Because the prince doesn't always get the princess.

Author's Notes: Failed attempt at crack!fic. An excuse to write Tegomass (well, it was almost going to be), but apparently my attempt wasn't so obvious so here is the rest of NEWS to keep you company.

Stepping onto the rehearsal stage, Tegoshi trudges uncomfortably in his glaringly pink dress, hair in curled blonde locks and feet wobbling in 3-inch heels. )

Why so much awesome, fandom?

'Kay so I just DL-ed the Koi no ABO single last night and ASDGJHDSKJGL apparently I'm still in love with Share. IT SOUNDS SO GOOD IN 320 kbps quality. DDDD:

Then I DL-ed the Music Station performance for Koi no ABO AND OMGSOMEONEGIVEMEAIIIIIR MY OTP IS BAAAAACCCKKK. *rabid keysmash* But I know Tegoslut is just doing this to promote Tegomass (because HELLO SWEDEN and POSSIBLE SINGLE?). WHY THE FAKE, BB? But still, my fangirl heart has never been this happy since circa TEGOMASSWENTONAFERRISWHEELTOGETHER. ♥♥♥

And the DVD, OHGAWD THE DVD. More Shige!bullying, how wonderful~ And poor Massu, always the misunderstood one. It's okay, Buta-chan, I'll still love you.

Anyhow, on a totally random note, you guys should watch THIS, especially people interested with drawing-slash-anime/manga. Some Flip guy did this animation for his girlfriend--and it's really heartbreaking. DD: WATCH IT PRZ. And don't forget to check the links on his video description, the link to how he did it (which then leads to his dA account) and stuff.

... Oh well, I'm now eating my mum's so-called "Yamapi rice" (she named it this way, swear!). But I fail with chopsticks (the thread of which is colored yellow because MASSU!). And I still think "Massu rice" was better. No kidding, my mum calls the rice recipes she makes after NEWS members. She even plans to build a restaurant (with posters of NEWS on the walls, with NEWS songs playing) and name the food after the members' names. She's so crazy.

Yamapi works at Shakey's!

Very, very late post about my chance encounter with "Yamapi". A few people from my f-list already know this story so if you're one of them, feel free to skip. Also, this post works better if you know Tagalog--because I won't be translating the dialogues found herein, since doing so would ruin the hilarity.

Here be "Yamashita Tomohisa" as a local Shakey's waiter. XD

Dang. If I see him on my birthday I'm going to make him wear a Yamapi wig and make him lipsync to Daite Señorita. WITH MATCHING DANCE MOVES (read: hip swivels LOL).

So you stalkers out there, he works at the Shakey's Shaw Blvd. branch. You pass by a flyover and about two gas stations (the place is also about 5 minutes away from SM Megamall), I think. I'm guessing he only works there part-time (for the summer maybe) since he looks like a university student to me--but you makapal ang mukha fans can probably go and ask the manager for his work shifts, rofl. Don't forget to inform me when you do! LOLOL.

Give me a break.

After receiving yet another "Badtrip! Ipapalabas nila sa GMA 'yung Nobuta!", I've had enough.

PEOPLE SHOULD JUST EFFING SHUT UP ABOUT DRAMAS BEING AIRED HERE AND QUIT WHINING ABOUT WHICH NETWORK'S AIRING WHAT. THEY HAVE THE SAME DUBBERS, OKAY?

I swear I'm going to make a rant about this one of these days.
