1st round Martin Marcelo - Mountain Shadow Dojo * His RAs kill my provinces and my little people. I lost any momentum I could have had.

2nd round Allan Ignacio - Crossroads Fortress * He got gold screwed. We played again afterwards and he promptly beat up my armies.

3rd round Aerol Bibat - Deception’s Veil Dojo * Autowin for me since I know the ins and outs of the SE scorpion decks. big_smile

4th round Mike Rabanal - Seventh Tower * We had the similar goals of creating super units. His stronghold has a nice kill action. Mine had a nice bow action. A miscalculation on his part cost him the game. All my escape artist skills were put to good use! :D

Random L5R stuff from July 25-28

July 29th, 2007 by Ice Tornado

Samurai Edition was released on July 25. I only learned about it in the evening  from the L5r Philippines site.  I went to NG Galleria to get a Unicorn starter but alas there were none. They called up Virra Mall and found that they still had a starter there. The salesladies asked me if I was willing to pay for the Unicorn starter at NG Galleria, take a Scorpion starter to NG Virra Mall and swap it there since the ones at Virra Mall needed to have the Scorpion starter delivered to them. I agreed to it and went my merry way and got my Unicorn Starter. The box is pretty!

I scheduled myself for the Berlitz test. I will be calling them on Wednesday 1pm for it.

We had a photoshoot at Kimpura again. It was around 15 dishes this time so it took a long time. It was from 11:30am-2pm. We ate the food afterwards and boy was I full!

I got my second Unicorn starter at NG Glorietta2.  I passed by NG Galleria on my way home and bought a booster pack. I saw a fellow L5R player and I chatted with him. He bought a box of boosters to be shared with his friend and was waiting for said friend to arrive. When his friend arrived, we went to Uncle John’s and commandeered a table. His friend openned up his packs and I traded some of my cards for some of theirs. Another one of their friends arrived and he had a Samurai Legal deck so I played against him. The game took quite a bit of time but with perseverence, the Unicorn trumped the Crane. :)

I hate it when it rains!

A Fateful Friday

July 6th, 2007 by Ice Tornado

I’m bored with nothing to do so upon Jamie’s suggestion I’m going to post about my day.

Where do I begin? I know… the part where I woke up.

I woke up at around 8:45 but my alarm was set for 9am so I slept some more and woke up at 9. I looked at the newspaper a bit to see the headlines and the comics. I headed downstairs for my breakfast. One sunny side up egg and a plate of garlic fried rice. It wasn’t complete so I headed to the dry kitchen (We have two kitchens… the one where food is prepared is what I call the wet one) and got some cheddar to grate upon the sunny egg. I nuked it for 30 seconds and ate it while reading the stories in the newspaper that caught my eye. I remember nothing about those anymore. Mama showed me a joke in the opinion pages and it was pretty funny. I headed back to my room afterwards to get ready and then the phone rang and it was for me. It was Potch from CVG Recruitment and told me where my training was and what time I was expected there. After the call, I got dressed and went to CVG and submitted my NBI clearance and other stuff. I headed to U.P. afterwards but not before grabbing a Regular Yum with Mushroom and Cheese meal from Jollibee so I can save time by eating on the bus.

Fast forward to U.P. I went into the secret tunnel where no guards lurk and headed to the U.P. C.S.A. tambayan and saw a bunch of familiar faces like Chris Ng, PaoPei Salvan, Clea Cheng, Mark Wu, Alvene & Carlson Ngo, Jamie Co, Jamie Polloso, Dorothy Villanueva, Jayne Li, Tim Sy, Migs, Charles Uy, Den Hui, Harrell Wong, Joyce Tan, Kester Kua, and Madie Co. I’m pretty sure I failed to mention 2 names since they escape me right now. I was mobbed by the apps when Chris shouted that there was an alumnus. I think I signed at the very least 30 sigsheets. I can’t remember many of the app’s names but here are the ones I do remember. Matthew Yu, Sarah Wu(shobe ni Mark), Amy Dy(shobe ni Alex), JanKim, Candice… it’s too hard!

I got an F.O.P.C. shirt from Melai the U.P. CURSOR memcom head for ‘07-’08. I went to the U.P. Post Office had a package weighed and sent it to Dubai for Php49.00 I went home after that and there were 3 tickets to Christina Aguilera’s concert waiting for me. It was too late to ask anyone to go so I didn’t.

I used the PC and openned YM to chat. MAW was there and told me to listen to  a few songs. The downloads took forever. Laureen had a youtube link to “Classical Conditioning - The Office” and it was a funny prank on Dwight. Brian had a link to a “whack your boss” anger management thing. I found all 17 ways. I chatted with Jamie for some time. We talked about how to get to my training building, my sched, food, pictures at starbucks, pet balloon cows, and being bored which led me to write this post. I looked at her multiply post about public transpo and commented.

Well that’s it. My sis needs to use the PC. Ciao!

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

June 16th, 2007 by Ice Tornado

I got out of the house today.

I went to Rob Galleria at around 12nn and played 1 game of W.o.W. with Bart. I chatted with Conci and Gaeb and revealed my forum identity to them. :p

I headed to Shangri-la at 12:40 and arrived to find out that the tickets to Perfume were going to be released only at 1:30pm. I saw Pao Pei who was getting tickets as well. She left though. At around 1:25 Aerol arrived and got in line around 90 or so people behind me. It was an R-18 movie so I was asked my age. I answered and thankfully I passed. I went to the back of the line to get tickets for Jamie and the others. I wore my jacket and took off my glasses but the lady in charge of giving tickets recognized me. :p

Jamie and her parents arrived just in the nick of time. They got the last 3 tickets. We needed one ticket more so I made a deal with Aerol. I gave him the stub for cheaper food from the moviehouse snackbar and he gives me his ticket. Jamie and I went ahead downstairs to get some photos printed then fetched her friend Lori(one of her kabarkadas at UAP) at Powerbooks.

We hung out at the line to the movies and talked about various stuff. We watched it and the movie was good up to the part of the orG wherein I couldn’t help but laugh.

We ate at Cibo and was sort of grilled by Jamie’s parents when Jamie and Lori went down to get the pictures. Her father is cool. He talked about China, economy, and marketing and making me interested in it. We had some pasta.

Celebrating Father’s day with another family is a first for me.

The amazing interview meme

June 16th, 2007 by Ice Tornado

For bloggers who want to spread this meme, here are the rules:

1. Leave me a comment saying “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by giving you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Superbong’s Questions 

1. What do you really want to do with your life after college?

I really want to save the world. To create an environment that is clean and green, but in order to do that, I would need to establish a lasting peace among all nations, races, and religions so that no one goes Jihad/Crusade/Armageddon on all my work.

2. If Hello Kitty can talk, what would you want her to say to you?

Hello Kitty can talk! I’ve heard her voice many times already. I want her to say “Let’s go on an adventure!”

3. Is there a thing you have regretted doing that you would want to change? What is it? and Why?

I normally have no regrets but… Yes, I regret asking you to interview me. Why… because I have to answer the last question and I hate politics with a passion.

4. What is the greatest vacation you dream of having?

That would involve me creating a sort of Eco-tour, travelling around the world helping the environment along the way.

5. Would you say that the Arroyo administration is legitimate? Why or why not?

They won the election so why not?


Raein’s Questions

1. You’re on a deserted island and Hello Kitty is the only person with you. Hunger strikes — what do you do?

I get out the cookbook and follow the instructions to make siopao.

2. You’re getting married! What would be unique about it?

Everyone who attends would receive a copy of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Rocky Horrror Picture Show and a mixtape to listen to.

3. You find a kitten on the road and it’s raining, you’re afraid that it might die because of the cold — what do you do?

I take the little kitten in my arms and cuddle it. I then proceed to take it home and give it a nice warm bath. Then I’ll have another new cat in the house. :D

4. Robin decides that he’s had enough of being a sidekick to Batman. He makes Batman his sidekick — how?

Robin grew up and turned into Nightwing. He finds a time machine and looks for a point in time in the past where there was a lame batman. He found Val Kilmer. He time jumps into the 90’s and proposes as Robin that he doesn’t like the way Batman looks like a wuss and the director loved his spunk. He then continues to be the lead character in the Robin series of movies. Well, it only lasts until 2005 when Christian Bale(of American Psycho fame) enters the scene.

5. You’re tasked to direct Hello Kitty’s music video. Describe it.

It starts all black then the song title appears in sparkly pink letters. Kitty is in a neon green gangsta outfit then the screen fades to black. She reappears in the same outfit, only it’s now orange then the screen fades back to black. A third time she’s back in a different but similarly styled pink gangsta outfit And this time she’s surrounded by 2 girls on each side of her with 3 guys at the back. They dance. She sings and dances. The screen alternates between her costumes every once in a while to keep the look fresh. She ends the video in a different all white feathery costume.

Growing up…

June 12th, 2007 by Ice Tornado

I saw Arthur and the Incredibles at the FFF12.

It was funny especially since there are some scenes that I think weren’t supposed to be in there since it’s supposed to be a show for little kids. 10yr olds aren’t supposed to be thinking that kind of stuff. It should be all about cooties and everything. I guess kids these days are growing up fast.

It’s just as wrong as the Pinocchio + thong scene in Shrek 2. I haven’t seen the 3rd yet but I saw in the newspaper that it has hit grossed Php100million already. Am I right in thinking that there would be some inappropriate stuff in there as well?

Today(June 12th)  is the independence day of the Philippines; not yesterday as our president moved the holiday so that there would be a 3 day weekend to make people take vacations to the provinces and whatnot and promote tourism I guess.

I just want to say hi to Sally who will be reading this post.

*sigh*  I forgot to put the mood icons last post.

Back from reality

June 6th, 2007 by Ice Tornado

I had our Canon digicam fixed and finally got it back.

I took a pic of all the surviving hello kitty stuff that I still have.

The image on the cellphone was a plastic hello kitty figurine of mine that got lost already. The fork was something I got from Gift Gate. The Hello Kitty in a kimono and the one in a bathrobe attire were received as gifts from Meema when she returned to the Philippines for a short vacation from her work in Japan.

I got a TTT Unicorn starter and got 4 rares instead of the normal 3. I made a list of the fixed cards was inside the starters just to prove that I knew what I was talking about when another local L5R player claimed that his list was correct when in fact his lists were missing at least 20 cards per starter.

The French Film Festival is about to begin I can’t wait to watch OSS 117.

Slow slow slow site

May 15th, 2007 by Ice Tornado

Ever since the Hello Kitty blog returned, it’s been so so slow for me. If this continues on the Happy Hello Hangout might not be so happy anymore.

It was my shoti’s birthday last May 11th and we ate at Kimpura, Makati. The food was divine. We had STEAK, gyoza, ebi tempura, kakiage, unagi, salmon, oysters, and curry fried rice. I had A&W rootbeer for my drink and a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert!

The return???

May 10th, 2007 by Ice Tornado

The blog is back! I took a vacation from home and went to my cousin Raoul’s house for Monday to Wednesday and did nothing but eat, sleep, watch TV, and play Rogue Galaxy and Gundam VS Zeta Gundam on the PS2.

I saw Curse of the Golden Flower… and all I can say is wow.
