A Happy Holiday Journal Entry

Sun Dec 25, 2011, 2:33 AM
Thank you
9,000,000 milestone +I mean this with all my heartSeveral years worth of cheese
Somehow, this silly page has hit 9 million views!
Just to be absolutely clear, I do not think the views make me any better than anyone else. I mean, I'm sure some of those are from people who don't even like me. But I guess my point is that it's crazy to imagine that this page has been opened up that many times, and I can't help wondering where all these hits have come from. And I just feel so grateful that a select few people in those millions have come to be irreplaceable friends to me.
It's been a wild ride with all of you guys through all this time. To me this isn't just a page where I simply showcase my artwork or the cosplay photos my friends and I come up with. This site has opened up so many opportunities for me, and has introduced me to some of the most wonderful people I've met in my life.
It's been a journey, and my interactions with the people here have taught me more than I can express.
Apart from that, one thing I absolutely did not ex

I'm still a bit overwhelmed by the responses to my previous journal entry, but I will do my best to make proper replies to some of you soon. But to everyone — Thank you all for constantly giving me reasons to be grateful. :heart:

Holiday Tomfoolery!
I've got a bit of free time today before another Christmas party so I thought I'd post a holiday journal with miscellaneous moments from the past month or so. Thank you so much to Miss-It-Girl for extending my subscription so I can keep sharing these photos with you guys! :thanks:

The holiday decor at home was a joy to look at and photograph.

I enjoyed the added details of these swirly twigs that make me think of Tim Burton landscapes.

After all these years, the sight of sparkling lights and shiny Christmas ornaments and even the smell of tinsel and synthetic trees gets me in the mood for some holiday cheer. :)

It's still been a busy month despite how it's supposed to be holiday season. But I've got some pretty exciting projects coming up and I'm thankful.

While doing some Christmas shopping, we noticed some pretty amusing toys at the toy store. Check out that sword on the right — it's the first time I've seen a UNICORN PEGASUS SWORD. And on the left, a "Superbow". It's so super, it looks like a sword! What will they think of next!

This is how we karaoke. Hahaha! One night, my bros and I just wanted to do something stupid so we went to a karaoke place to butcher songs in our own special way. And this time, we decided to document it on video.

Miguel and I even wore our Black Parade jackets and I shoved on a silver wig which I had not even bothered to style yet, just to make it extra silly special. (It was supposed to be a bad wig party, but the others forgot to bring their wigs. Or maybe it was all part of their plan.)

(Click here to watch the video on YouTube)

My friends and I are always happy to give you guys reasons to smile or laugh (even if it is usually at the expense of our dignity) so here is one of our karaoke videos, with us singing Helena by My Chemical Romance.

Tip: The real show is with Miguel :iconmerkymerx: and Melo :iconballistashark: at the back.

For the people who wanted to hear my voice, you'll be sorry at around 0:57. Hahaha! This is me, Miguel, Melo, Bok and Dom singing some MCR songs (Welcome to the Black Parade, I'm Not Okay, Planetary) and a SPECIAL SURPRISE ULTRA BADASS SONG at the end.

One day while hanging out, we all got a craving for pizza. Shakey's Pepperoni Crunch in particular, with those bits of crunchy shoestring potatoes. But when the delivery guy arrived, he told us that they had run out of the crunch and made a peace offering of a box of mojos. We were a little upset (in a silly @firstworldpains sort of way) that we didn't get exactly what we had ordered. Melo grudgingly threw the mojos on the pizza and we were like, CLOSE ENOUGH. We ended up splitting our sides roaring with laughter at the ridiculous sight of our failure of a potato substitute, and absurdity of the whole thing. Being around good company really helps put some light on some otherwise annoying situations.

We did some things for um, SCIENCE.

We studied osmosis and stuff.

We attended the UP Lantern Parade as always!

Gundam lantern float!

Manny Pacquiao float, hahah

Two of our favorite moments during our experience at the UP Lantern Parade 2011. So much pun!

The guys and I wore My Chemical Romance-inspired outfits. Me :iconbehindinfinity: and Miguel :iconmerkymerx: from the Black Parade era, Melo :iconballistashark: and Bok from Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, and Dom :iconweakman: was something in between I guess. We did Danger Days last time, so now we wanted to party like it was 2004-2006! Hahaha!

It just started with me joking that we should join the Lantern Parade as the Black Parade. We didn't all have our jackets yet so this is what we ended up with. XD

It was really cool though how so many people got us. Everywhere we went they'd be like "MCR!" or sing lines from Welcome to the Black Parade, I'm Not Okay, or Famous Last Words. Whenever we got the chance, we'd go in between the lantern floats and jokingly march behind them in the middle of the street.

People gather at Quezon Hall to watch the float presentations of the colleges.

It was wonderful to be part of this crowd.

We had such a great time! We spotted a lot of amusing costumes, saw some really cool lantern floats, watched people light floating lanterns (like the ones in Tangled, yeah) and set them free, and ate school fair food in the familiar fields of my campus under a clear night sky. Truly a night of everyday magic.

I only regret that I wasn't able to document the experience through photos as well as I could have. However! I know two people who did! My lovely and extremely talented friends, Sandra Dans and Katrina Teh.

After the Lantern Parade, we headed to Melo's house to celebrate his birthday. This is, of course, not Melo's house. This is a gingerbread house that was amongst the many things we devoured in his home. Alex decorated it!

The windows have evil clown faces.

Before we ate the gingerbread house, we demolished it with the help of ponies.

The birthday boy. Okay.

We made good use of an eyeliner pen that was about to run out.

It was SO DIFFICULT for me to take pictures at this point because I was laughing uncontrollably.

Try it with your friends!

You'll all feel so beautiful.

I got a mustache!

Because of this. Some of you know the reason behind it HAHAH


Bok was our next masterpiece.


Party group shot! Sadly not complete because some of the guests had already gone home and Erving was behind the camera.

And the Freddie Mercury 'stache had me feeling pretty fabulous.

And now, here is our happy emo family Christmas photo series!

The theme for this pic is "smile like a 5-year old"

Merry Christmas, everybody! :holly:
Hope you guys get to immerse yourselves in the company of friends and family, stuff yourselves silly, and enjoy the holidays! :D

You're looking rather skinny Jin, honey. Eat some more of that pizza! If you're feeling a little under the weather, hope you feel better soon.

...and if this is all just the make-up and lighting, then ignore the previous statement. :)

Did you know that adding 'llllladies' to any statement makes it automatically creepy? ^^

Also, thank you as always for the giggles. I should comment on your journals more often, I feel like such a creeper most of the time 'cause I read them all and never say a thing. ><

Merry Christmas to you as well! I didn't know lanterns parades were used to celebrate this holiday, thanks for sharing this bit of knowledge!

As Italian,t hough, I must say that that pizza scares me... pizza isn't supposed to be so thin (even if here in Italy too someone makes it like that, unfortunately). _'

In the "smile like a 5 year old" photo you look like a punk-goth teenaged girl. :giggle: But so cute at the same time. :)

I wish I was in my 20s again and do things like you did. Oh well. Enjoy them while you can. :) Everyone has a blast there and I envy you. :) Thank you for you photos and posts.

Have a safe Happy New Year's!! :hug:
