Is your fairytale still happening? I was just going through my old tags and found it and just caught up on it. I really hope you're still doing it because it's a great series
yup! although it’s on a temporary hiatus right now. I’m working on making a seperate tumblr for my Fairytale AU and it’s been so busy lately because I also have my OJT so sorry ^^’ Anyway thank you for the support :))
It was nice meeting again the Team Duty and other bloggers through Kuya Rhod’s birthday.
Ayun sobrang happy ako na medyo marami tayong Team Duty this time. Everytime kasama ko kayo ang saya-saya ko kasi I’m so blessed to have wonderful people like you in my life. Ay wow. Pero seryoso ‘yun, I’ve had an awesome vacation with you guys and I know marami pang gala with the fam. Sana makasama na lahat, as in lahat HAHAHA.
Sorry kung baka mag-lie low na muna ako sa GC at Duty ‘coz u know OJT and org naman na ang haharapin ko bilang today na ang end ng vacation ko. Sadlyf. Wag niyo po ako i-kick kasi baka inactive ako ha HAHAHAHA JK I LOVE YOU ALL FAM. WALANG TITIBAG HAHAHA ❤
If you have a time, and interested to my college brief story, please take time to read this. Thank you! And to all batch 2017, congratulations.
The best profile picture ever!
Tila ang sarap pakinggan ng mga katagang “Graduate na ako.” Hindi ko kayang pigilan ang umaapaw kong kasiyahan na nasa loob ng aking katawan kasabay din nun yung luhang nagtatago sa likod ng mga mata ko na tiniis ko sa loob ng limang taon. Oo tama, luha. Luha na dulot ng sobrang tuwa, luha na nagsasabing sa wakas tapos na ang mga paghihirap mo, ito na yung pinapangarap mong degree (well actually hindi ko alam na dito sa kursong ito pala ako magtatapos). Sa wakas makakahanap ka na ng isang maganda at disenteng trabaho na maipagmamalaki mo sa kung kanino. At syempre yung luhang nagsasabi sa loob ko na… “Sa wakas Rayniel, nakaya mo. Lahat ng pagsubok, lahat ng mga mahihirap na exams, quizzes at projects, sige isama mo na rin yung mga seatwork na akala mo quizzes sa sobrang hirap na ultimo utak mo talagang mapipiga at matutuyo.“
Sa totoo lang hindi lang isang beses ang maisipan ko yung fastest way to exit this course which is to quit. Sa limang taon ko sa College of Engineering and Technology, hindi lang isang beses na sinabi ko sa sarili ko na "tama na hindi ko na kaya”. Dumating pa nga yung araw na sinabi ko na mismo sa dean namin na “Sir pwede po bang mag shift nalang po ako sa ibang course pero same lang ng college kasi po sobrang hirap na.” Ilang quizzes na ang iniyakan ko, simulan natin sa first year, yung college algebra na inakala kong makaka uno ako pero nauwi sa 2.25 tapos yung trigo ko na sabi kong basic lang pero 2.25 lang din. Grabe first year palang sinabi ko na sa sarili ko “IMPYERNO ATA TONG PINASOK KONG KURSO”. Nalagpasan ko ang first year ng matiwasay pero pag sapit ng second year, UGH! PHYSICS. YES, kung saan nakakakuha kami ng grades na 26/100 at maswerte kana nyan kapag ganyan ang nakukuha mo dahil kahit papaano tumatama ka ng isang problem out of four problems. Dahil hindi namin alam kung saan kumukuha ng tanong yung prof namin dyan (puro pang out of this world). At iniyakan ko yang subject na yan, sinabi ko na sa sarili ko na hindi ako para sa engineering at kung babagsak man ako, it means ayun na yung sign. After ng semester, nalagpasan ko ang physics at alam mo ang sabi ko sa sarili ko? “Rayniel bakit mo pinasa, dinugtungan mo lang yung buhay mo dito sa impyernong course na to”. Pero believe it or not, nung pinasa ko ang Physics kahit tres lang ang nakuha ko, naging determinado akong lumaban. Akala ko makakaya ko na dahil ayan na third year nako sa ibang course kasi diba pag third year na wala ng problema, yun pala. Simula palang ng kalbaryo ng buhay namin sa Electronics Engineering. Pumasok ang electronics at circuits, aba himala wala akong problema kaso biglang sinabitan ng Differential equations, at muli nanaman akong nawalan ng lakas ng loob at determinasyon. Dyan din yung muntik nako ma-HD at mapalipat dahil sa failed to reach the cut-off. Thanks to that warning-warning-hd rule, dahil isang warning palang ako at pangalawa ko na yun nung bumagsak ako. Nung naisip ko yun sabi ko sa sarili ko, “Kailangan mong lumaban, nandyan kana. Konting tiis nalang oh, konting tumbling nalang.” Kaya after nung sem na yun, oh guess what, 1.86 na ang GWA ko from 2.58. Diba grabe ang batak ko nung sem na yun. After kong bumagsak sinabi ko sa sarili ko na hinding hindi na ako pwedeng bumagsak at ayoko na. Kaya pinilit ko yung sarili ko, nag aral ako ng mabuti. Laban lang, laban kung laban, puyat kung puyat. At nagpaka-GC ako ng bahagya nun. Alam ng mga classmates ko kung gaano ako nagsusumikap para maging regular muli at para makahabol sa batch namin. Ako na nagsasabi, hindi biro yung pinagdaanan ko sa loob ng dalawang taon, yang fourth year and fifth year life ko. Nandyan yung kulang nalang hatiin ko yung katawan ko dahil sa magkakasabay at magka overlap na sched from regular to irregular subject. Nandyan yung napagsabihan ako ng prof ko na “napaka espesyal mo talagang estudyante Magsino kundi lang ako bilib sayo dahil kinakaya mo hindi kita pagbibigyan”. Lahat yan kinaya ko hanggang sa makarating ako sa kung ano tong kinalalagyan ko ngayon…
My first greatest achievement to myself and one of the reason why I forced to love this Electronics Engineering is being a licensed Electronics Technician under-graduate of Electronics Engineer. I proved to myself to my professors and colleagues that I belong in this field of engineering. And I’m very proud to say that I am an ECT passer. Yung puyat ko, habang nasa OJT, review everyday, habang nasa bahay kahit pagod sa school basa ng reviewers, habang nasa school kahit hirap balansehin pinipilit kong isingit ang review ko kahit may exams pako sa mga subjects ko, lahat yan nagbunga ng makita ko yung pangalan ko sa results of passers. Sobrang naiyak ako, gusto kong tumalon sa sobrang saya, at sobrang pasasalamat ko kay Lord dahil alam kong hindi nya ako pinabayaan sa pag-eexam ko.
And other than that, is this, completing this five year program in five years. All I could say is wow, just wow. *teary-eyed*

I’ve always been a big fan of izakayas (they’re sort of like Japanese pubs). They combine a number of things I love, namely ice cold beers, skewers of grilled meat and often other very yummy food. While they aren’t exactly the same, there are a lot of similar places in Taipei and while I was there a few weeks ago, I popped down to one of my favourite ones with family.
The place is called 吳留手 (Wu Liu Shou) and it’s a small chain of about 4 stores all in Taipei City. I’d been a couple of times before and so when my cousin and I were looking for a place for dinner, it didn’t take me long to think of this place.
First things first, we got a few beers in and then we decided to start healthy and went for some spinach rolls in a sesame sauce. These were actually really good but let’s be honest, we were mainly here for sticks of meat!
Let’s start off with some beef. Super juicy and really tender.
These were mini chicken breasts smothered in a thick layer of mentaiko fish roe. As we were ordering, we realised that we really mentaiko and you’ll be seeing more of it in a bit!
This was really nice pork!
There was a large variety of different parts of chicken on the menu. I can’t quite remember which part this was but, it was nice!
More chicken :)
Now this place doesn’t just do sticks of meat as apparently that wouldn’t be a “balanced meal” so we did order other dishes too:
We figured we should at least order some things that weren’t meat.
Buttered mushrooms, lots of mushrooms. We and shitake, enoki and a whole bunch of others I can’t name.
We went for a big bowl of seafood friend rice. Look at that nice big dollop of ikura (salmon roe) at the top!
Grilled baby sweetcorn. Like everything else, this was really tasty. I have to admit, sweetcorn is so much easier when you can eat the whole thing.
Because we clearly hadn’t had enough mentaiko, we’d ordered another trio of dishes with mentaiko in it.
First up was Mentaiko udon noodles in a cream sauce. This actually turned out to be one of my favourite dishes of the night actually. The sauce was delicious and the noodles nice and springy.
The next dish was yam with a mentaiko topping. I liked this a lot. The crispiness of the yam went really well with the rich smoothness of the roe.
These are chicken wings, de-boned and stuffed with mentaiko. So good!
A personal favourite of mine; chicken ass! It’s actually the tail of the chicken more than the arse but whatever you want to call it, it’s delicious! You get it at friend chicken stalls in Taiwan as well and it’s very rich but sooo good!
The first few beefs were so good, we decided to get some more.
This is fried chicken cartilage. It sounds strange, I know but it’s nice and crunchy and the chilli powder on it really gives it a bit of a kick.
Pork intestine. There’s pretty much nothing I won’t at least try eating and I realised a while ago that I like intestines!
BBQ chicken hearts.
Chicken with leeks.
We were pretty stuffed at this point so decided to finish up with mains and onto dessert!
First up was a black sesame panna cotta. If you like sesame, you’ll love this! Really sesame-y and yummy!
Barbecued mochi was initially like biting into little balls of lava! Insides were nice and gooey but so hot! Once you let it cool down a bit, you could eat it without burning yourself and was really nice. The condensed milk provided the sweetness and the mochi itself was slightly crunchy on the outside and nice and soft on the inside.
If you’re ever looking for a place in Taipei to drink beer and eat meat, you won’t go too far wrong with this place. It’s definitely on my list of recommendations in Taipei!

Just for the record, Sakura’s tears are of happiness. I’m still debating myself how Sakura will tell Sasuke, could be the traditional way, special, or maybe dramatic. I don’t know, I’m open to any suggestion.
Vacation 2016 🍂🌿🍃✨ I haven’t posted for a while because it’s already our vacation (after our final exams, we can now sleep and rest for two to three weeks before our on the job training). So here’s my “bullet” journal turned into a memory journal including how I spent my holy week with my family, the waiting for my grades, and my adventure in applying for my on-the-job training in Pampanga where I found a craft shop (atlast!) i’m so amazed and inlove! Hihihi.
So ayun nag ojt ako kanina then I saw my crush nung high school. He saw me first pero tinitigan ko lang sya kasi di ko sya namukhaan and I was like “meh, chinito parang si x” then when I looked at him again it hit me na sya pala talaga yun. Sobrang awkward lang kasi feeling ko feeling nya ako yung nakakalimot after high school type of person pero di ko talaga sya namukhaan hahahaha.
Anyways, pogi parin sya. Poreless, ganun. HAHAHAHAHAH. Yoko na okay bye.
So after NG chapter 10 came out, and we discover that Sasuke and Sakura traveled together, a lot of ideas come to my mind, and I really wanted to draw it so bad. So at the end this is the result, expect more, I don’t know how many pages I will do yet. All is made with my touchpad and a little mouse, so takes me a complete day to finish one page.
May naalala lang ako way back 2013 ata, nung may niligawan ako nun eh taga tandang sora qc (super far hahaha) tas ayun, okay naman kami, mahilig ako sa music as usual kaya lagi ko kinakantahan gabi gabi bago matulog. Then siguro lumipas ang 3months tinanong ko na sya if ano sagot nya. Tas isang gabi, inantay ko sya pauwi, mga 2am na sya nakauwi galing OJT. Ini-reject nya ako hahahahah hanggang kaibigan lang daw talaga ganun. After ko na ma-busted nun, hindi na ako naggitara ulit hahahaha siguro halos kalahating taon din yun, kinalawang at puro gabok lang gitara ko nun eh. Bigla lang ako ginanahan ulit tumugtog nung makilala ko si J. Wooh rak
