Jonalyn & Julius' Wedding: Finale

Akala ko talaga babagyo that day... Buti naman ndi. Salamat dahil ndi killjoy si Butchoy.

Anyways...

Ito yung banner na ma-pink din
Ang color theme ng kasal nila ate Alyn ay Pink. As in lahat pink [syempre me white at black]. Yung damit ko, kamisa de tsino na pink tapos chinese collared-barong. Yung ke Joy, parang pang-prom na dress and white shoes [na may 3inches na takong]. Medyo analogous din naman ang damit nila Chamme sa damit nila Joy pero ang pinagkaiba eh may head dress sila. Si Ate Alyn naman naka-white gown na madaming shining palamuti. Si Kuya Julius naka [almost-] tuxedo.

Si Joy at Ako dun sa me ancestal house
Unlike sa kasal nila Ate Xenia, wala kaming pictorial. Sobrang prepared pa naman ako if ever merun ehhh. 

After namin magbihis-bihis, nagpunta na kami sa Villa Alca, somewhere sa boundary ng Santiago City at Diffun. Nakakapeke naman yung Villa Alca ahahaha. Akala namin me swimming pool, yun pala eh wala. Pero merung ancestral house dun na maganda dahil halos lumang items ang nakapalamuti.

Medyo sablay din [para sa akin] yung pagmama-march kasi ndi man lang kami nagkaroon ng rehearsal. -sigh- Naka-asa nalang kami sa sasabihin nung Pastor. Medyo iba rin pala [ng unti] ang marching ceremony ng Methodist sa Catholic.

Newly Weds!
After nung kasal, picture-picture na! Sobra naman kung makisali ako sa pictures ng iba! Sobrang atat? ahahaha. Ang dami kong sinalihan na pictures na dapat eh ndi naman ako kasali.

Tapos, sa reception na! Weeeh! 
Pero na-shatter ang kaligayahan ko when I learned that walang exclusive table para sa mga secondary sponsors. Nakisali tuloy kami sa ibang guests. Pero okay lang, atleast me mga bago kaming kakilala Hahaha. At nung tatawagin na isat'isa ang mga secondary sponsors, nagulat ako nung bigla ba naman tumayo si Joy si kinauupuhan nya. Ahaha! Baka ndi daw kasi siya makita if tumayo lang sya. Go lang!

Si Ate Alyn at Kuya Julius
After ng kainan, nagpalit na kami ng damit. Tapos nagpicture picture kami nila Ate Xenia dun sa Ancestral House.

From L-R: Xai, Joy, Ako, Ate Xenia


After nun, uwian na! Pero nagpunta muna kami sa Diffun para maki-happy-nings! Yeeeh! 

All-in-all, worth naman ang pagod naming lahat sa wedding nila Ate Alyn at Kuya Julius. Sino na kaya ang susunod na ikakasal? Tatlo na kasi ang kasal sa mga first cousin ko sa Mother side: sina Kuya Dondon, Kuya Joemar, at Ate Alyn. 

Hahaha, ako? Baka ndi.

FictionJunction YUUKA 「akatsuki no kuruma ~ReTracks」


This is not an official annoncement!

After watching PHASE 23, before the ending credits, Akatsuki no Kuruma was played. I did recognize the change in the instruments used.

Looking at the ending credits...



I wonder why this wasn't announced.

FictionJunction 「distance」+ Anime EXPO 2012

It was announced earlier this day that FictionJunction will perform the new ED of Gundam SEED HD Remastered. The new song will be titled 「distance」and I presume that this will be use in PHASE 27 just after the span of the ED「Anna ni Issho Datta no ni ~ReTracks」.

Here are some proofs:
1. Taken from http://listen.jp/newtype/anisoninfo/2012summer.htm
 2. Tweet from @listen_anime

I'm watching the HD version of the series and at some time, I kind of thought that "what if FJ will provide a new OP for the series?" then I scratched off the idea immediately after rewatching PHASE 14 wherein the same OP was used as that with the original version,

Then, just this afternoon, after I was looking at the announcement of OP and ED of Sword Art Online, a new anime in which Yuki Kajiura will provide the music, I scrolled farther and was shocked to see FictionJunction in the list!

Hell Yeah!

New songs from FJ is always a good news for me. 

And this would be FJ's first ED! 
「stone cold」switched with 「kiseki」in the half of Anime SACRED SEVEN doesn't count.

Though still no official announcement was made if the new song will be released as a single, I kinda already assumed four possible outcomes:

1. 「distance」will be released as a single along with a b-side. Some thought that 「Eternal Blue」would be a possible b-side but I thought that maybe they will include another Gundam SEED-tied song. Then I remembered that FictionJunction YUUKA's 「akatsuki no kuruma」was already featured in PHASE 24 of the original running of the anime. So I think that along with 「distance」is 「akatsuki no kuruma ~ReTracks」, no?

2. 「distance」will be included in FictionJunction's new album. I think this is a great way to improve the sales of the yet-to-be-announced new album as having a Gundam-tie always boosts the sales. Plus we'll be having the full version of「Eternal Blue」. Another reason that I thought this would be included in FJ's album is because of the upcoming ANIME EXPO 2012 wherein FJ will be performing in a 1-hour concert... thus they should be promoting a new album, no? THOUGH! Yuki Kajiura's 「FICTION II」is considered relatively new so they might promote that instead along with other new animes wherein Kajiura did the OST.

3. 「distance」would be included the BD BOX of Gundam SEED HD Remastered as a bonus. I DON'T WANT THIS!!! Though I'm sure that LATER [very very very later] that this song will be eventually included in a new album.

4. Or Kajiura will wait until almost 14-15 tied songs are made and compile it in an album like how she did it with see-saw's 「Dream Fielld」wherein only 1 song is not tied! No new song?!?! Oh and if you're also a fan of Chiaki Ishikawa, see-saw's other half, her new album contains 80-90% of tied songs. So yeah.

Though I'm hoping that either of the first two will be the right guess.

Another NEWS!!!

As I've mentioned earlier, FictionJunction will be attending the ANIME EXPO 2012 at Los Angeles.
More Information HERE

This will be FictionJunction's first appearance outside Japan. Also it was announced that a special guest would be participating with the 1-hour concert. And from the posters I've seen, they will be most likely to sing songs [though am still not sure if only J-POP or will include the Kajiurago and English songs] from anime .hack//Sign, Tsubasa Chronicle, and Pandora Hearts. With the inclusion of the .hack//Sign there, this made me think that the special guest would be Emily Bindiger [but I don't like her at all, SORRY!]

I'm already sure that FJ will be performing their 3 single title songs.

Kaori Oda in AMNESIA SONG COLLECTION「Remember」+ Another Union

Kaori Oda is one my favorite Japanese singers. The very first time I heard her voice was when I was still watching Anime Tsubasa Chronicle wherein she sang two IN songs, 「tsubasa」and 「dream scape」, under the name FictionJunction KAORI; FictionJunction KAORI, at that time, is a duo unit of acclaimed composer Yuki Kajiura and Kaori Oda. Because I really loved her voice, I started to look up her discography and I found out that she's also a singer of the Fantasy Band Sound Horizon. Ahh... I really loved her songs with the SH. Though, I hope she get to sing solos in the future releases of SH.

After her graduation last March 2010, she re-started/resumed to collaborate with other singers/bands/composers outside the FictionJunction and Sound Horizon circle; re-started/resumed because she did some collaborations before joining FJ and SH.

Starting with her participation with the Ouzoku Band's mini album 「CROSS PEACE」wherein she sang two songs titles 「Sayonara no Kawari ni」and 「Flowers in Paradise」.

Next is her participation with the popular doujin singer Haruka Shimotsuki's new doujin mini album 「Kaso Shoujo ~Lip-Aura~ Gensou Kakkyoku Shuu」wherein she sang two songs.

Presently, she sang the OP and ED of the PSP game AMNESIA LATER. Later, she also sang the theme of the drama CD of the game. The three songs were not released in a single [shame!] but were released in a compilation album containing songs from the first game and the second game.

Since I'm not a fan of the the other singers from the album, I only retained the ripped tracks which Kaori sang. hehehe.

You can download it here:

Another NEWS!

Due to Kaori's participation in Ouzoku Band, a new rock band was formed with the name Another Union. More information in their official website. I can't wait to hear their songs considering that Kaori's the only vocalist of the band.

Project FEMME FATALE

New project under tentative title FEMME FATALE

Jonalyn & Julius' Wedding: Part 3

Nung Sunday nagpunta kami sa Diffun para bisitahin sina Tita Mely, Tito Junior, at Ate Alyn. Nung first time kasi namin na bisita eh paalis na sila papuntang Santiago kaya yun bbumalik din kami agad.

Nagpunta muna kami nila Mama, Dad, Chamme, at Joy sa Church sa Diffun. Grabe, halos walang pinagbago ang church lalo na sa interior. Ganun na ganun parin.

After ng mass, nagpunta na kami sa bahay nila Ate Alyn. Sakto rin naman na paalis sila papuntang magsimba. Kaya yun hinitay nalang namin sila. Buti merun kaming mga kausap don. Nakita ko din yung anak ni Ate Matot. Grabe ang kyot nung bata!!! Gwapo yun paglaki hehehe.

Nung lunch nag-spaghetti lang ako... syempre me refill ahaha. Nagkitakita ulit kami nila Loyd at Monang; mga childhood friends namin. Usap usap ganun. Asaran lalo. Ndi kami masyadong nakapagusap ni Ate Alyn kasi busy palang sila sa preparation. Grabe nga. Sobrang madami palang papeles at preparasyon ang mga ikakasal. Kinontrata na din nila Ate Alyn si Dad sa sasakyan nya para sa wedding.

Around 2pm, umuwi na kami. Pagdating sa Cordon, dumaan muna kami kina Ate Xenia [asawa ni Kuya Joemar] para magbigay ng invitation. Sadly, hindi daw sila makakapunta kasi may ipapakasal din sila around that week.

Atsaka napilit din namin si Inang na bilhan kami ng ice cream!!! So nag-snacks muna kami bago pumunta ng Santiago.

Bumili lang kami ng charger ng laptop at sapatos ni Joy pero inabot kami ng tatlong oras grabe! Sobrang dami kasing tao. tsk, tsk.

FIRST SEMESTER 2012 SCHEDULE

Weeh me bagong look na ang SystemOne now in V3!!!
Sana maabutan ko pa ang V4 if ever ahahahah.
Bale tatlong generation na ng SystemOne ang naabutan ko... yung V1 na sobrang primitive at ndi user-friendly pero nonetheless ay helpful pa rin kung marunong kang umintindi...
Yung V2 ay dinevelop ng uncle ng friend kong si Carmine. Compared sa V1, mas cool ang design ng V2! Sobrang gondo pero madami paring naging problema pagdating na nung online enlistment. Recently me inupdate din sila na low-bandwidth version ng V2 na mas simple pero mas user friendly kaysa sa V1.

At ngayon nga, yung V3 na. Wala akong masabi sa design. Ang ganda. Parang FaceBook na ang itsura dahil parehong pareho ang template na ginamit. Merung mga bagong features na dinagdag pero merun ding mga binawas. Nagdagdag sila ng Problem Resolution [kung saan pwede magsend ng mga mga feedbacks at mga commonly encountered problems, etc], Dream Sched [dati independent itong app na ito sa mismong SystemOne], at Straggler's Time [ndi ko alam ang gamit nito]. Ang mga tinanggal naman ay yung Tuition Fee Estimator [na ndi naman masyadong close sa talgang babayaran], yung Friend List [parang FB na pwede mong makita ang sked ng mga frends mo], PE Planner [na ni isa ata ay walang nakagamit], at madami pang iba.

Eto na ang aking for this sem:

Mukhang ndi mabigat no? Pero NO! Anhirap ng mga pesteng subjects... ahaha. Grabe nahirapan ako last sem pero sana naman kayanin ko na ngayon as grabe talaga. Nawalan ako ng gana last sem pero sana ngayon ndi na... Please Please Please!!!

Mga subjects ko ngayon
ChE 143 - Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics II
ChE 145 - Chemical Reaction Engineering
ChE 153 - Transfer Operations I
ChE 154 - Transfer Operations II
ChE 155 - Unit Operations Laboratory
ENG 10 - Writing of Scientific Papers
NASC 4 - The World of Life
PE 2 - Softball

Oh-em-gee!!! Kakayanin ko ito!

More Colored Drawings!!! Now with Solid Outlines!


Yesterday, I started making the line art of a drawing and afterwards, I realized that making a line art with solid outlines is more efficient than the pencil outlines in terms of ease of coloring.


Here's the first drawing with line thickness set to 2 so it's a little bit large...
Sweet!!! I really love the dark-skinned guy! He looked like a puppy. While the light-skinned guy looked like a tsundere. 
This was originally from Sketch VOL.#3 ~Summer 2011 Special.

The latest and only drawing that I've colored today is...
I really loved the shadings of the polo of the guy.
This was originally from Sketch VOL.#6 ~after shock!!!

Hope you'll like it.
