Trying to be a girl

See-through bangs
I also cleaned and polished my own nails (feet and hands):

Sensei in training~

3-4 weeks ago, I got an email inviting me for a job fair in Mall Of Asia. The event was set for February 14, 2017. I had a flu that day so I went out wearing jeans + shirt + hoodie.

I wanted to apply for IT related works but shit on us ‘cuz companies want experienced employees. Like hell noobs like us can get XP when no one would hire us. I went for a booth looking for online English teachers. The people who line up were kinda interviewed by their staff. The staff is composed of 99.9% girls so I was given the impression that it is an all-girls company, and that would be great. The interviewer said the salary is low but I said it’s fine. I can’t afford to be choosy, knowing I have nowhere else to go.

I didn’t expect to get a call from them because when they talked to me, I was dressed like a slob. I bet I looked terrible too because I had to sneeze every now and then and wipe my mucus. I even had fever during that time so I was like a walking bomb.

I’ve been in training for 3 weeks now. And the company is indeed an all-girls employee except for 1 male company owner and 1 male head teacher and yeah I forgot about the 1 male IT and 2 males who take care of utilities.

I won’t write long about this topic because I wanna write something else. bye

December cosplay update: fabric shopping

 

As promised, here is an update for my cosplay fabric shopping~

The place where I bought my fabrics is sooo far from my home so it took me 3 hours or so to reach it.

I went out during the morning with my koibito and got to the place by lunchtime so my first priority was to eat XD

There were a lot of people! It’s already December so people must have acquired their bonuses from their jobs so they definitely have money to spend.

If there is something that I have inherited from the characters in One Piece, that would be being klutz with directions like Luffy and Zoro do.

My mind was occupied with the goal of finding the stuffs I need so I totally forgot to take pictures of some interesting stuffs there. Also, the place was loaded with people that you can even barely walk.

It’s loaded with people that you can even barely walk.

By the way, I live in Philippines. For Filipino cosplayers who would like to know where the heck is this place that I am talking about….well….guess what, I won’t tell you 😛 You can just buy a costume from me instead XD

So here are the pictures of some stuffs I bought:

For our Saiki-kun and Teruhashi-san cosplay:

For K-On school uniform:

For my Anita Neru cosplay:

I am also glad that I was finally able to buy needles for my sewing machine. It has been months since I accidentally bent my needle.

After I got the stuffs I need, I stopped by my koibito’s house and played Love Live! XDDD

I got home late in the evening lol.

I was tired yesterday so I posted just now. =w=

I got stuffs to do. Ja~

Love Live cosplay for next month: Nozomi Tojo

So, the original plan was to cosplay Teruhashi from The Disastrous Life of Saiku-kun + Emilia from Re:Zero but something happened. I was supposed to order Emilia’s wig and costume but the agent took days to reply and I am in a hurry as well so I have decided to cosplay Love Live instead since my fellow cosplayers in a Facebook Group will be cosplaying Love Live and Nozomi wasn’t taken yet >____<

Just an update, I have already ordered her wig =u= and the costume too.

I was supposed to go to a fabric store today to buy fabric for Teruhashi’s cosplay but eh…something happened. My boyfriend woke up late so I can’t go there anymore =w= Tomorrow I will go. And hopefully we can buy the materials I need for crafting props such as Katarina’s daggers XDD Know her? From League of Legends.

I think that’s all for today :3

I will post an update regarding my fabric shopping.

Will cosplay The Disastrous Life of Saiki-kun for sure XD

I know I planned some cosplay a few months ago, I wasn’t able to do them due to lack of funds. But now, I got a temporary job so I’ll be able to do some cosplay.

I watched the anime entitled “The disastrous life of Saiki-kun” and found it to be fun because the characters remind me of myself and my koibito haha.


I asked my boyfriend to cosplay Saiki, the main protagonist. He is that pink haired dude. Saiki is born with Psychic powers and end up using it for people around him.


As for me, I decided to cosplay Teruhashi, a beautiful girl that gleams at all times. She can make any guy feel an admiration for her, except for Saiki whom she doesn’t know, can read her mind. She’s acting all goody to attain that beautiful and kind girl image she wants. Ever since Saiki ignored her, Saiki has been her love interest. (I can relate as to how ahe fell for Saiki xD That’s how I fell for my boyiend haha)


The characters look ordinary at first look but if you watch the anime, you will see the unique storyline and other cool stuffs 🙂 I have no time to make a review xD

I do have a wig on stock that might fit Teruhasi:


Pardon my face XD I just got out of a night shift work. No makeup too.

Or I could just buy a color spray for my real hair…


I’ll need to cut my bangs shorter. I am not willing to cut my hair because I’ve been keeping it short for many years now so I missed having long hair =w=

As for the clothes, I’ll try to sew them by myself.

That’s all for now. I gotta sleep.

1 goal achieved: College

“Life is not easy” is what I always learn and College life was no exception.

My family has no capability to send me to college. My parents can’t afford it. If we can’t pay for my tuition and fees, then we definitely have to pave a way for it. I must send myself to college.

Through God’s blessings, I acquired a full scholarship from De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB). My parents don’t need to pay anything. I even had a monthly allowance which was very helpful to my family.

I am very thankful to Him, to my college, and to all the people He used to give me this blessing. As what Matthew 7:7 says: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you”. I had nothing, but I trusted Him, and so He gave it to me. The Lord truly is amazing.

But of course, my journey did not stop there.

I had to study and monitor myself so that I can maintain my grades to maintain my scholarship. The sea is not always calm for there would be storms from time to time that will brew big waves. I experienced some failures in quizzess and exams, especially in math subjects. But somehow, I passed through all those hardships because God would always send me people who will guide and encourage me.

In this stage of my life, I learned many things about life itself.

I cannot always win. Failure is a natural part of our life. Just like what Albert Einstein said, “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”

Life is more than just getting good grades. Ever since Grade 3, I thought my grades were everything. I was wrong. Life must not be limited in the four walls of a classroom or on the numbers that your report card reveals. It is about exploring the world and making the most out of your life not only by yourself but with the people that you treasure.

Fourth year, I lost my scholarship. I was stressed because I don’t how I can pay for my tuition fee. Again, I just left everything to God’s hands. And He sent me a solution. He brought me close to the people who can help me and I was able to survive those months of wandering. I got a job and I tried to save some money while supporting my family. After a few months, I returned to college with the help of my parents. 2 last semesters were left for me when I returned, why would I give up? HAH! I won over the challenge.

The last challenge for my college life was the thesis. I was blessed to have groupmates who are cooperative and understanding.

On the times where I almost lost hope, I am always reminded that the Lord will always be there for me. As what Philippians 4:13 said: “I can do all this through Him who gives me strength”

Now, I will be graduating from College. It is a success made possible not only by myself but with the help of everyone who were there to support me. I would like to thank all my friends who where there to lift me up everytime I was down and who taught me to explore life; to my professors who have encouraged me to fight the battles of life and shared with me their positive outlook in life; to my teachers back in elementary and highschool who have contributed in molding me as to who I am today; to my Alma Mater: De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde who gave me the opportunity to study; to Student Grants Office of Benilde who helps its scholars, especially to their one employee who still processed my late scholarship application even though he was already about to go home; to my Pastor who has guided me during the time of storm in my life; to my counselor in Benilde; to all the people I’ve met who shared to me some wisdom and good deeds; to my boyfriend who was always there to wipe my tears and support me; to my parents who loved me so much that they have sacrificed a lot for my future; and most of all, to my Lord who has blessed me with these wonderful people and continues to guide me and strengthen me; thank you very much everyone.

I wouldn’t be able to succeed if not for the help of everyone.

And to all those people who are losing hope in life, just remember that life is not always gonna be easy. It is packed with challenges. It is alright to commit mistakes, what’s important is that after a failure, you stand up and continue the fight. Failures are success in disguise.

And most of all, remember this verse in the bible, Matthew 21:22 “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer”. The Lord will give you all the strength you need to overcome the challenges of life. What you do not have, He will give it to you. Just trust Him.
