Random L5R stuff from July 25-28

Sunday, July 29th, 2007

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

Friday, July 6th, 2007

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!
