Ozine Fest 2011

I’m an Anime and Cosplay fan, I Read manga and watch the series for hours with no end, till my siblings tell me to change the channel. what do they know they call them CARTOONS uh! Cartoons are Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny oh NO WAY!,  I don’t have anything against cartoons they’re a big part of my childhood too but Anime is a whole different world from Cartoons.

Anime: “Distinct facial expressions. Wide variation in physical characteristics.Physical features of characters are, on the whole, closer to reality than cartoons.Anime concentrates mostly on life issues or things tied closer to human emotion. while cartoons are more comical.”

aside from the Detail of each character and the depth of story, able to relate to most of the young adults that watch them. is a different other level from Bananas and Pajamas and Spongebob (well I have to admit spongebob is Very Funny).  I sound like a geek already Anyways lets get back to the topic.

I really admire those people who have such passion for anime to be able to make costumes for them to where and even though I’m a big fan I never had the courage to where costumes especially the big, detailed, heavy, over the top costumes, but I still have  a great time taking pictures of them. its like I’m in a whole new world where I can see the characters I love soo much in real life.

Well I atended an Anime fest last year and these are some of the photos I was able to get. Hope you Enjoy.

10-28-2011 Snow Storm

Another hectic week come and gone its the last week of october, The temperature just dropped  just sitting in the house and watched some Movies and Read a book. perfect peaceful alone time. seriously not one of those NewYork Adventure friendly weather. so excited for Nov 1 thinking of trick or treating with my housemates I know we’re a bit too old for the Tradition but that’s not gonna stop us.

well the day was just starting but it was really dark I looked in the weather report checking if its going to rain. nope it only said cloudy then that’s when it happened, A tiny ball of white fluff came falling from the sky. SNOW! I was excited because it was my first time to actually see snow 😀 …. it stopped for a few minutes, disappointedly walked back to my room. good thing my bed was beside the window and it started to snow again but now the wind picked up stronger and stronger and the amount of white fluff falling down increased almost covering the whole window, SNOW STORM!. Scary 😐

I tried to open the window slowly, just a littlecrack dropped theroom’s temperature so fast. it was really cold couldn’t bare it so I slowly closed the window. we just stayed in the house for the whole day didn’t take the risk and turn into a popsicles  outside. the storm lasted till night and we slept .

 next morning it was considerably brighter than yesterday, the snow stopped and when I looked outside everything was white. sooo Beautiful O_O rushed outside with my housemates to play in the snow. weeee!!!!!

A Pure White Heart of Snow

Karen Now that’s a Smart thing to wear when its -4 outside

Never Ever let your Guard down when playing with snow

The Snow was really nice to play with it was like 3-4 inches of snow covered the lawn. sooooo Fun. making Snow Angels are harder than it looks and Tip for all of you never ever Try to taste snow or go out just wearing pajamas not a good idea. Later we found out that it was really rare to have snow storms on October.


Seasons of Life Autumn 2011

Autumn or Fall is one of the four temperate seasons. Autumn marks the transition from summer into winter

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons the Crisp sounds of dried leaves as I step on them, the Hue of Leaves from Brown to Fiery Red to Golden Yellow, and the Gentle chill in the air while walking around. This season holds  a lot of memories. opening the closet and starting to wear your sweaters I wish we also have this season in the Philippines.

An Awesome day with Leigh’s Uncle’s Family we cooked for them to thank them for their Hospitality.

Some Thinly Sliced BellPeppers and Zesty Lemon for the En Papillote

Very Home Made Yummy Banana Almond Muffins Perfectly Brown

Dory En Papillotes are all done Fresh off the Even Yummmmmmy.

Being surrounded by Nice people enjoying what we cooked makes all the blood and sweat that we poured in the food all worth it

Leigh’s Grandma is Really Nice really made me miss my Own Grandma Lily I miss her soo Much 😦

After eating a Lot We decided to go out and have some fun to burn it all out

CDO TRIP

Before I started my Internship in the US, My Family Planned on a 3 day Vacation in Cagayan De Oro on a whim for a well deserved Rest and Relaxation After my Graduation and Before I leave for my internship. well I can’t say that three days was enough to satiate my craving for some sunshine but I can’t complain it was really fun and a very great time with my loved ones I couldn’t ask for anything more.

After an two hours plane ride from Manila we finally arrive at our destination

WELCOME TO CAGAYAN DE ORO

“THE CITY OF GOLDEN FRIENDSHIP”

My Big Sister, My Big Brother and My Mom no rest stops on our way to Camiguin Island two hours ferry ride from the Mainland.

After a Nauseating two hours on the Ferry finally arrived at the Island and for the first stop the Hots Spring even before checking in on the Hotel how unplanned can this trip be.

Great View of the Mt. Mambajao in the island.

At the Old Church Ruins 

Stunning Photos in the ruins, the Trees were so Big and Green the Moss covered walls survived years of unpredictable storms. this is what makes this place so beautiful the more calamity hits it the more years that pass by it just makes this place more Grand, loving the wonderful Climate, The Fresh Air, The smell of the Sea Breeze, the Songs of the  Birds and the Abundant Shades of Green all around. truly a spectacular place to be. a perfect rest spot.

ME, My Big Brother and Big Sister Enjoying ourselves Thank you Random Person Passing by for taking our Picture!

Stunning View. 🙂

My Family I’m Going to miss them soo Much.

A Great View of the Katibawasan Falls wanted to take a dip but after dipping my toes in the water and felt the sharp chill backed out.

FInally Arrived at the Resort Nonstop walking the whole day time for some Snooze and Yummy Food. getting ready for DAY2

Early Wake up call Starting our ride to the “White Island” Semi-Clear skies with Calm and Clear Waters Perfect day to go to the beach you need to rent a boat for the whole trip back and forth or else you’ll find a hard time going back to the mainland.

After a 30 min boat ride from the Resort We Arrive at the Sinking Beach the “White Island” its alarge Island in the middle of nowhere  Covered with Fine White sand, no trees or any distinguishing colors just the white sand and with sunny skies and clear blue water From a far it creates an illusion that everyone in the island is standing on water. pretty amazing. though you have to come quite early coz it tends to get really crowded after a while. and true to its name the white island actually sinks, after a few hours the Tide comes in and slowly covers the island with water giving the effect of sinking pushing everyone to either slowly gather in the middle of the island or stay on their rented boats. though it never actually sinks all the way its amazing how an Island able to accommodate a few Hundred of people after a few hours can barely  hold a few dozen.

A Common Delicacy Near on the Beach is the Fresh Sea Urchin Drizzled with Onion, Garlic and Chili Infused Vinegar even though my Mom, used to trying different kinds of food I wasn’t brave enough to try one. the guy selling them opens the shell BARE handedly with the help of a small knife and gives it to you Fresh to eat the meat. and after you’re finished they throw the shells back to the water, they said that it’s still alive and you’ll be able to catch it again ready to open and full of its meat again.

After a Few Hour on the Beach decided to head back to the Resort and take a dip on the Pool spending the remaining few hours in Camiguin, going back to the mainland of Cagayan de Oro for Day 3

After Arriving in the mainland again we spent the night out and about the town admiring the beautiful city then headed back to our hotel we were finally on the last day of our vacation so we ended it with a splash and possibly a lot of dirt and mud. decided to do one of the Most famous tourist attractions the White Water Rafting but due to heavy rains up on the mountain the water was kinda brown but that didn’t stop us instead it actually made the whole ride fun coz the current was much higher and faster. completely scared at first but after a few rapids adrenaline kicked in to over drive and we were having soo much fun that we lost track of time. went back to the hotel to wash up. Going Back to Manila. it might be short but its full of memories and i’ll keep them with me till i come back to the philippines after my internship;

Well Thanks Guys for Reading My Post I hope You enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing about it. look out for my next posts Going to start my days in US 🙂
