A Patch of Rainbow

patch of rainbow 20120903

A little thing that caught my eye
A patch of Rainbow in the Sky
Reminds me, Lord, of days gone by
Where You are always by my side.

“A Patch of Rainbow” by Columbia Kho

I am a sap. Too bad the rainbow isn’t really that visible in the photo. If I had taken this three minutes earlier, it would have probably been much clearer, but I'll take what I can get.

Photo was taken last 3rd of September 2012.

Uta no Prince-sama Music: My Records

I found a bunch of these on my phone, and seeing that I still have my UtaPri layout, I guess I might as well post them here.

hijirikawa masato naito no kiss pro a rank

This is from Hijirikawa Masato’s 騎士のKissは雪より優しく Naito no Kiss wa Yuki Yori Yasashiku (A Knight’s Gentle Snowy Kiss?). I think it’s one of the first Pro ranks that I attempted and I was surprised that I managed to get an A rank in only 2 tries! I think I eventually managed to get an S rank for this song though.

ichinose tokiya shall we dance pro a rank

Next is Ichinose Tokiya’s 星屑☆Shall we dance? Hoshikuzu☆Shall We Dance? (Stardust☆Shall we dance?). The very first attempt and I managed an A Rank. It surprised me so much because I had a little trouble with this song in the beginning!

I think Tokiya likes me more than I like him, haha!

shinomiya natsuki orion de shout out pro a rank

Last but definitely not least, my greatest achievement: Shinomiya Natsuki’s オリオンデShout Out “Orion de Shout Out”! Argh, definitely one of the most difficult songs in the game, but not impossible!

This was a sort of goal I wanted to accomplish because Hinano was having a hard time with this particular song and ranted so much about it! It’s also one of the last songs I conquered to complete all the otome clips, but it was nonetheless very satisfying to get an A rank instead of playing the pro level 30 times on B rank to get it. In which case, I didn’t even understand that last clip at all which is all the more disappointing!

I think I have two more pro level songs that don’t have an A rank, but since I can’t read the Japanese light novels that you unlock with those songs? I doubt I’m going to finish it. I wish they’d translate this game already so I can play it all over again!

On the Midnight of September 8th

mcdonals night!

Now this is what I call a midnight snack!

Sorry, my brother and I were only supposed to go out for some twister fries and coke float, but because there was a Matchbox happy meal offer, my brother decided to get all four that night, and we ended up with two trays full of food. All of which we finished, by the way! Way to break my diet!

It’s moments like these that I love my brother very much, haha! Feeding the younger sister with free meals is always important to a healthy brother-and-sister relationship~!

Taho Station

Thanks to Jeff posting about taho in his webcomic, I’ve been having cravings for this sweet snack and thus ruining my diet.

taho station

For those who are no familiar with it, taho is a Philippine snack inspired from the Chinese. It’s made of silken tofu, arnibal (which is brown sugar and vanilla syrup), and sago or tapioca. It’s usually served hot and sold by street vendors everywhere in the country.

I wasn’t allowed to eat taho because I contracted Amebiasis when I was 3. That means no street food, no school cafeteria food, and no drinking from water fountains. This is actually still true today, because eating or drinking the wrong thing will get me an injection or even time in the hospital stuck with a dextrose to my arm.

However, all was not lost! Since my mom considers food being sold inside a mall to be “safe”, a little stall called Taho Station on Walter Mart has opened up, and I’ve been a regular customer ever since! Ok, maybe not regular-regular since I eat this thing only twice a month, unless we happen to go during my rest day, but regular nonetheless!

I do like the cold version that’s been coming out lately, but the hot version is probably still my favorite. Nothing beats the original~

…and I need to remind myself to stop posting about food in the middle of the night! Now I really want a cup of taho.

Meanwhile, Outside My Window…

It would appear the someone has made the santelmo (if not the fire angel) angry.

Not only is there a fire raging, but there are explosions seen and heard from the distance. It started around 2 in the morning, but thankfully, the fire’s dying down now, and I don’t hear sirens wailing anymore.

I don’t really care to go nearer just to get a better shot. I’m staying inside my room, thank you very much.

And to think I was complaining for vertigo just a few hours earlier. Some people have bigger problems today. I really hope no one got hurt…

Bejeweled Blitz: Diamond Master

bejeweled blitz on facebook - diamond master

I find this funny because I have a friend named Diamond, and I met her through an RP game where she played Agatsuma Soubi from Loveless. I suppose I can now say that’s I’m her “master” and she’s my “servant”?

For those of you who don’t know, Loveless is a world where people have cat ears and tails if they’re still virgins, and certain pairs of masters and servants fighters and sacrifices who can use spells to battle one another.

…I know the concept is weird, and I don’t think the mangaka knows where her story is going either since it’s been running for 10 years now filled with endless filler chapters. Gotta love the weird ones…
