Then check this out: Memoirs
I missed cosplaying so much! I still remember the first one during C3Con, where I cosplayed as Robin Sena of Witch Hunter Robin (the anime series wasn't event aired here in the Philippines yet).
But of course, my fave was the cosplay group of Bleach - and we were the first to cosplay too~ Anyway, I'm a bit sad that I wasn't able to cosplay after that, and of course, there's the most daring costume I ever fit in - Alcione of Magic Knight Rayearth. I was a GM already when I made my last cosplay group skit!
The Pains of Cosplaying
Anyway, there are pros and cons to it. I had to bleach my bangs for x99 as Satsuki before. And the rush of getting the costumes and accessories done, and small parts of action skits and amongst others, the flash of the cameras and photographers asking to take a picture of you. But for the sake of fun and entertainment, that's what we can do for the spectators / audience.
The Most Important Thing
Fun with friends! You can never go wrong as long as you have them by your side.
And for my wishlist before, I intend to cosplay again for e-Games Domination 3. ^_~
It was a long week of posting announcements, conducting in-game events along with the GameMasters, sneaking a few moments of laughs, the occasional gossip, lunch, coffee break, going back to work and finish all the plans and more event proposals, and finishing with a big smile on your face.
This day was one of those rare days that you work and really be happy with what you've accomplish. (I know it may sounds corny, but heck if this day is everyday, I'd be more happy to surrender into the world of corniness - if there is such a word).
Anyway, I started with checking my emails and a couple other emails (1 official e-mail and 2 community mails), checking the forums and blog comments, and random chat with the players in my YM and Plurk.
It's a bit tedious to add up players in your YM, but I still manage to help out when I can, multi-tasking other things as well.
I love making people laugh, especially at Plurk. I'd think of ways of starting up conversations even if it's not game-related. Sometimes even players need to take their time off the virtual world and go back to earth and connect with their physical friends, even if it means of online network again. XD~
And then I updated my social networking sites (name it: Yahoo, Multiply, 2 Friendster, 3 Facebook, etc.) especially the ZXOnline Multiply site. I sneak in a few minutes of making simple backgrounds and cheerful images like these:
ZXOnline's GM characters has a red GM word and a red star on it ^.^
Sometimes I'd also borrow books from friends and find online tutorials on web designs. I'm still a long way to go, but I'll get there somehow. ^_~
When I'm doing something - be it playing, doing events, typing away pages and pages of plans, or just chilling - I'd always have music and a cold drink on my desk. And of course, my sanctuary at home - my PC and sounds again, and most of all: my husband. (mushy mushy~!)
I haven't updated my gamer profile yet at my navigation bar in this blog. Oh well, I have been trying out new MMORPGs - mostly the cute ones. And so I went to MMORPG.com to check out the games under beta testing stage.
I'm still playing games in my company, however I still would want to explore more, and of course as a hardcore gamer, try new games - especially the International servers. I find it more interesting to talk to them since we have different cultures and traditions and other stuff.
Oh, I've updated my picture in my Friendster and Facebook profile (Mei Yan's profile) since yes I am vain~
Coz when you let go
And let life take you where it wants to
Give up control
I can say I pretty much lived my life to the fullest - being a model (Pink Soda), member of a band (vocalist), artist (seminars and workshops at UP), techie (call center agent), adventurer (even way back before e-Games, I love going out-of-town), GameMaster, Assistant Product Manager, Community Manager...
But hey, during all of my soul-searching, life is still huge. That's how I would describe it, knowing that there are still lots of things to do, but with so little time, how can one girl do all of these stuff?
Way back, I sew dresses, and all of them now sold and hopefully being cared by people who loves art in their outfits as much as I do. I miss those stuff I made with my bare hands, but heck because of my asthma, my medicine is giving me one big side effect - hence I cannot hold the pins and threads. Pfft~
Now, as a married woman, I wanted to create my own family. And yes, that'll include having a baby. ^.^
I confessed to Lee already, however, I still wanted my kids to have a house and a good neighborhood. Because with the PC shop downstairs, I don't think it'll be healthy for the baby to grow up with people trashtalking and coughing out their viruses around, no offense dear customers below! ~_~
Like Brooke Davis in One Tree Hill, the one thing or dream that I still need to fulfill is being a Mom.
Will this mean I have to stop working again? Perhaps... I intend to focus on my baby once he/she is out in this world. I don't want a Nanny to attend to my child's needs.
Just chalk it up to one of my wishlist~ But hey, just because people dream and shed tears doesn't mean that it's a sign of immaturity - and I got this from a book. ^_~
OK, the topic may be odd as well, however the series of events that happened in these past few months.
I suddenly don't have the urge to shop that much ever since I'm selling clothes of my own, and thru my Direct Selling sideline. My last item purchased was a pink shirt with a rock-ish logo at the back, and it was on SALE.
Most of my purchases were house items: shoe racks, cabinet, a new computer, and now an airconditioner. I even told my husband to keep the rest of our money in our savings bank.
I became unhealthier these past few weeks, as per my one week of absence due to my high fever and flu - which my mom & mom-in-law thought I'm pregnant - which is not true (but hopefully soon!).
When I went to Davao for the 3rd time, the GE players (like Gemma) approached me and they've all took pictures with me with the "we missed you" phrases. This moment had made me smile. And another one took place in PC Quest, where one of the GE players pointed out and said, "hey, it's CM Veya!" We were all talking about stuff in GE, and I had told them I haven't checked my account since last year, and they were laughing and teasing me that my items and characters are all gone. Waaahhh!!!
I miss Pangasinan - where we always go to during Holy Week - and where our hacienda is located. XD~
I love going out-of-town recently. It makes me feel more relaxed. *sighs*
Oh well, btw, I saw the GI JOE movie trailer, and I suddenly laughed when I remembered my friend saying this will be the next movie (we were talking about movies based on comics, books, cartoons, etc.) to hit the screens. Jeez, he can now open his own Psychic shop. Enjoy~!
