D-2: Christmas

Hello, everyone! I'm sorry that I haven't updated for a long while now. I just couldn't think of anything to post about. Fortunately, I was able to find some pictures I took at school the day AFTER I took the pictures in my "Do you smell something? I smell Christmas" post. So yeah. It gave me an idea. This one is just gonna be short, but first, check out the pictures I took. I just love how our school give effort in appreciating Christmas.

Christmas is a time of giving and sharing. May we have the heart to continue to love, care, and share, not only to our loved ones but also those who are more unfortunate than us.

The first thing that comes out in the minds of people when they hear the word "Christmas" is presents. Christmas isn't just that. Some people just tend to forget what the real essence of Christmas is.

Christmas is the day when Christ is born. It is the day when we were given a Savior. A Savior that had saved us from sin by sacrificing Himself. We need to be reminded that without the birth of Jesus Christ, we wouldn't be living in this world right now.

Advance greetings to you! Advance Merry Christmas! :) Don't forget to spread the love.

Rurouni Kenshin "Samurai X" Live Action Movie

As we all know and for those who don't, Rurouni Kenshin Live Film Adaptation was premiered in the Philippines on the 5th until the 7th of December. Upon the announcement, we, Filipino fans, were so excited to watch it! Watching the trailers made us look more forward to the movie!

Here are the trailers of Rurouni Kenshin Live Action Movie.

Trailer 2

Cinematography wise, I'm pretty sure that this could get anyone want to watch the movie in the theatres.

Moving on! My friends and I watched the movie on the first day, December 5. I'm going to give my review about the movie starting here. I'll go in this sequence -- Adaptation, Music, Fighting Scenes, and Cast.

Good Time

First of all, I'm sorry because this is not another one of my written or "typed" stories. But this is something that I really want to show. I actually didn't mention it in this blog but I actually like making videos. I may not have the equipment and skills; however, whenever I get the chance to make one, I'd give my everything in that video. I put all the effort I could give. Although I'm pretty sure that the output wouldn't be as good as others, I'm still learning, so all is well. :))

Okay, this is the latest video that I shot and edited. It's my friend's school group project. Her name is Trina by the way. She asked me, Sheena, and Chinky for help. Sheena helped out in the pre-production stage. Chinky was supposed to help in the production or the shooting stage but her schedule didn't permit her, so her camera represented her presence. Haha! Hey, Chinx!

I know, I know. The outcome isn't so good. I can't really say that this is an excuse but we changed the concept at the very last minute --- during the shooting day itself. So yeah, I thought of just taking a few clips of my friend, Trina, and her group mates, and a few clips at an event we were going later that time. While editing the video, I then realized that it was not a good idea to insert the event clips. So yeah, I had to manage the clips, although it was really hard because I only took a few clips at the first venue. -shrugs- I even almost pulled an all-nighter for this. I'm glad I was able to have a two to four hours of sleep. 

As a side note, I'm glad that they like the video. That's all I wanted to know anyway.

Miss You

I just made this out of boredom and inspiration. Well, originally this is for a friend, but I was able to have fun in making this. This is the second latest short story I wrote because I just wrote my latest on November 19 this year. I'm not sure if this is worth posting but I'm posting it anyway. 

I hope you'll be able to have time in reading this. 

Oh yeah, did I mention that this is a fanfiction? Okay, now you know. If you want, you can just imagine as if the name of the guy is the name of your boyfriend or crush or... yeah. :)

NOTE: No to plagiarism.
Another NOTE: I edited it a bit. Just two sentences.


It was raining hard outside. You were sitting in front of your study table using your laptop. You were surfing the net and chatting with a friend. You sighed. You weren’t really the type to actually feel depressed over nothing. But hey, the weather suited you just fine. You might as well add the fact that you were alone in the house tonight. For some weird reason, when you got home from a jog, all of your family members were nowhere to be found. They left you a note that they would be back tomorrow afternoon. It was definitely not helping your situation.
I can already feel the distance.” You typed as a reply to your friend.

You dropped your head on your desk, forehead first.

In all honesty, you weren’t really feeling depressed because of no particular reason. Heck, you just didn’t want to admit it, but you actually had not seen your boyfriend for almost two weeks and it was bothering you. It might seem like a short amount of time but for you, it felt like months. And the both of you barely kept in touch because of your busy schedules. He was busy with his career while you with your studies.

You turned your head to the laptop’s direction to see what your friend replied to you. You immediately sat up and stared at your laptop’s screen as if it grew a head. ‘WHAT?!’

You stared at the innocent text, hopefully thinking that it would change into something else. But it seemed like no such miracle would happen. You jumped out of your seat and hopped on your bed, rolling on the latter.
