An Unexpected Trip to Baguio! DAY 1 [2012.10.26]

Grabe hindi talaga kami sure ni Joy kung sasama kami kasi sobrang puno na yung sasakyan at sa likuran na lang ang bakante!

Noon una, nagdecide kami na wag na kasi hassle naman. Pero noong sinabi ni Dad na bibigyan nya kami ng pera pang-shop... halla impake na kami!

Umalis kami sa bahay around 4 pm. Kaming lahat na sumama: Manong Orlan, Dad, Chamme, Aye, Tita Felisa, Tita Celia, Mama, Joy, at Ako.

Hindi naman gaanu kahirapan ang maupo sa likod. Yun lang, pag me pinapakuha na mga gamit sa likod eh nakakainis lang.

Atsaka medyo masakit sa puwitan ang pag-upo dun kasi nasa gulungan yun.

Pero naka-adjust naman kami agad-agad.

Nakatulog na ako mga half-way papuntang La Union. Tapos nung medyo comfortable na ako sa higaan, tadaan! Nandun na kami!

Around 10 minutes to 12 ang oras na nakarating kami.


Natulog agad sila Mama pero kaming mga bata eh nanuod pa ng "The Healing".

Hahaha. Sobra naman kung makatili yung mga kasama naming bata.

Natulog na kami after nung film. Guess what? Walang proper tulugan so natulog nalang ako sa tabi nila mama doon sa bed na naka-expose sa daan! Hindi lang naman kami ang nakatulog dun, madami ring mga unknown faces. Pero holy puwit. Natakot naman ako kasi baka me head hunter na susulpot dun anytime kaya medyo ndi ako nakatulog kasi binabantayan ko yung paligid.

Medyo maingay din kaya kasi yung mga truck na padaan daan. Hmf.
Pero enjoy din naman kahit ganun.

My New Nintendo 3DS XL!

Welcome to my life!
Hahaha!

The package contains AR (augmented reality) Cards. 3DS XL unit, 3DS Manual, and a 110V charger.
The Nintendo 3DS XL is the bigger version of Nintendo's newest game console. Somehow, its appearance is also way better than the first version.

I didn't buy any 3DS games yet... I'll wait for a flashcart update -sigh-

This was also the case back when I bought my Nintendo DSi.

Right now, I'm really enjoying the augmented reality games :)

FictionJunction 「Distance / eternal blue」 Released!!!

FictionJunction is Yuki Kajiura+Kaori, Keiko, Wakana, and Yuriko Kaida
Finally, another single release from FictionJunction! Sadly, no PV was released.

Here's the cover art:
Tracklist:
1. Distance
2. eternal blue
3. Distance ~instrumental~
4. eternal blue ~instrumental~

My Review:
M1. Distance
「Distance」 is used as the second ED of the anime 「Mobile Suit Gundam SEED HD Remastered」 starting from PHASE 27; Yes started from PHASE 27 instead of the first post that it will make its first appearance in PHASE 29.

It is a very beautiful ballad. The chanting of YURIKO and KAORI along with the main melody sang by WAKANA and KEIKO is an eargasm! The one I like the most is the overlapping style of singing in the chorus specially KAORI's parts. The bridge part is also an eargasm! I really love the chants.

Instruments wise, this is the first FJ song with string quartet! Love it!

Oh... this song's chords are kinda similar to Kalafina's 「manten」... Try to sing Distance starting the start of strings in manten... The melody of Distance fits, no? I'll try to have an editted Distance x manten soon! 

M2. eternal blue
「eternal blue」 was used as the OP for the PSP game 「Senritsu no Stratus」. The game version of the song was released along with the OST of the game. You can download it somewhere in this blog.

「eternal blue」 was supposedly the third single of FictionJunction but t'was decided that 「stone cold」 will be their third single. Thus, delaying 「eternal blue」's release. The construct of this song is very similar to 「Parallel Hearts」, and 「Toki no Mukou Maboroshi no Sora」. Though the construct of the bridge is very similar to 「stone cold」.

It is a very very beautiful graceful upbeat song; even surpasses the first two title songs! I really loved the bridge part where YURIKO sang the Kajiurago while KEIKO sang the main melody.

Comparing it to a more recent Yuki Kajiura composition, the construct is very similar to Kalafina's 「to the beginning」!

------------------------------------
I hope for more FictionJunction songs... Please Kajiura-sama!!! Another Gundam-tie song, please? Or any Studio Sunrise anime.

EXTRA!
Here's a FJ logo extracted from the website of FJ. You are free to use it!


Kalafina 「moonfesta」 Released!!!

Another late post -sigh-

Kalafina released their second single prior to the release of their third album 「After Eden」.  「moonfesta」 is a tie-in for a youth-oriented NHK show  「minna no uta」.

I remembered I was really excited with this single because somehow I really like  「storia」 which sounded kid-oriented for me.

Pretty much, the  「moonfesta」 had HIKARU as the main vocal for the verses while WAKANA in the bridge; KEIKO can be heard all through out. The most noticeable here is the instrumentals as it sounded Arabic, no? It's like listening to Arabic Nights.

The B-side  「Yane no Mukou ni」 is a beautiful ballad. 

Well, Every Yuki Kajiura produced single almost always contains an upbeat song and a ballad song. This is true with releases from  「see-saw」,  「Saeko Chiba」, 「FictionJunction YUUKA」, 「FictionJunction」, and for other Kajiura singers.

Here is the cover art:
Tracklist (RE):
1. moonfesta~moon festival~
2. Yane no Mukou ni
3. moonfesta~moon festival~ ~instrumental~

There are actually three versions for the single: regular which contains only the CD, limited A which contains a DVD, and limited B which contains a BluRay.

-sigh-

They used to only have two versions of a single/album until the release of 「to the beginning」 which was released in four versions: regular which contains only the CD, limited A which contains a CD+DVD, limited B which contains a CD+BluRay, and an Anime version containing a CD+Anime-related-DVD.

So from these, I now infer that...

For singles with ANIME TIE-IN, the single will have FOUR VERSIONS.

For singles with NON-ANIME TIE-IN, the single will only have THREE VERSIONS.

For the THREE VERSIONS included, it will contain a INSERT PHOTO OF ONE OF THE GIRLS.
