THERE IS SOMETHING WE CAN DO FOR TARA SANTELICES. PLEASE FORWARD TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Word spreads around fast and almost everyone has already heard about what happened to our dear friend, Tara Santelices (Assumption Antipolo’s Batch 2003 and Ateneo de Manila University’s Class of 2007, AB Political Science).
On the eve of her 23rd birthday, Tara was shot in the head during a hold-up while riding a jeepney along Imelda Avenue, Cainta, Rizal. Joee Mejias, who was with her at that time, rushed her to Amang Rodriguez Memorial Hospital in Marikina City. The parents of Tara and Joee arrived at the hospital shortly thereafter. When morning came, Tara’s parents finally decided to transfer her to the Medical City, Ortigas Avenue, Pasig City. Since 8:00am of August 6, Tara has been in the ICU fighting for her dear life. Her parents have decided not to push through with the operation.
Although it might seem that there is nothing else that we can do but wait for Tara to wake up from this horrific nightmare, we, the friends of Tara, have decided to raise funds for Tara’s hospital bills. This is the least we can do to ease the unbearable pain her family is going through. We have been given the go-signal from Tara’s dad, Tito Larry, and here are the details:
The temporary bank account is under Anne Marie F. Santelices, Banco de Oro, SA 2140-062201. For direct cash donations, please proceed to the ICU Waiting Room of the Medical City (Ortigas Avenue, Pasig City). Please look for Joee Mejias or Lila Santelices.
Any amount will be gratefully accepted. Anonymous donations are also welcome. Please spread the word. Forward this to your family, friends and even to everyone else you know. Please post this on Friendster, Multiply, Facebook and wherever else you can think of. Please send group messages on Yahoo Messenger. This will mean so much to us, her friends.
Please continue praying for Tara, for Joee and for both of their families. If you want to come see Tara, visiting hours at the ICU are at 9:00 am to 11:00 am and 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
Thank you so much for your time and kind consideration.
For inquiries, please contact Joee Mejias (09228154987) for calls and Jac Ledonio (09167243071) or Myka Francisco (09163695148) for text messages.

And these are shots I took while facepainting in Shangri-La mall last July 26 ^^ it was loads of fun painting with my friends Tonet ang Gem, and my Achi Vivi! I extend my gratitude to Mr. Larry Sy, Ms Sakura Ozaki, and to Syeri Baet and Henry de Dios for letting us be part of the event ^^
And these are my toys in my workstation ^^ A sleeping Balinese Kitteh plushie and a pink female Stikfas figure. I'm still wondering if I should buy a blue Alpha male Stikfas figure to be with her :p
Jackie took this pic while we worked together on My Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Story entry. Spicy Tuna Pasta = cocaine for White Kitteh!

She'll be having a concert here! Alicia Keys O_O the first ever album I ever owned. Good God she's like, the most beautiful woman with the most beautiful songs I've ever seen and heard. I've been in love with her since I first heard her sing very first release back in college.
T_T and... and... I has no muneez *cries*
That’s right Alicia Keys is coming to Manila soon to serenade us as she sings the songs from her latest album “As i am”. This multi-talented singer recieved many awards such as 11 Grammy’s,11 Billboard Music Awards, 3 American Music Awards and 14 NAACP Image Awards. Watch out for her soulful performance @ Sm Mall of Asia open field on August 5,2008. To reserve tickets, call TicketWorld at 891-9999.

Let's start the checklist from head to toe...
To I can get my blonde wig back I'm just waiting for gf Joy to schedule a meet-up ^^ I'll combine this with another wig borrowed from Batella. I bought a big dark barette, and a hair mascara to help my brows match teh blondenezz ;)
As for the glasses, I thought about painting my glass frames black, but decided against risking it since dad got me this gold plated baby from Hong Kong.
As for the top, I ganked a polo shirt from my lil sis. I think it used to be her uniform back in college or something. I bought a yard of tiny ruffles (no, not ROFLs) and stitched them down the front of the shirt. Then the long sleeves are cut off to be replaced with bigger ROF- er, ruffles made from a half-yard of white tetoron.
I found the black velvet sleeveless knee-length dress at an ukay shop across Robinson's Galleria ^^ the hemline was raised a LOT shorter, then added the bigger RO-... ruffles! to match the new sleeves. The neckline was also scooped lower.
I found long black fake nails also at the palengke! I even got a discount from the Taiwanese seller by conversing in Fookien XD I found glass bangles and bought 1 yellow, 2 whites, with a ring to match.
Finally I dug up my thigh-high black socks (which I've used in past cosplays) and found the white high-heeled pumps in Greenhills ^^

Hee I just grabbed this from Jokwa's multiply blog ^^ Lookie! It's mai first GF pic with beany lol XD
This was taken in that New Worlds Alliance event in Rockwell. This is the day I met Beany and Shin because they just invited me through Matt to join them in their cosplay photoshoot.
Beany lent me the top, coat and scarf. Her white wig is luuuurve! If I could borrow it I'd probably have the crazy idea to cosplay the White Witch of Forbidden Kingdom hehehe!

Ooooh! I got it spelled wrong after all XD I tried Google again now that I am armed with correctly-spelled data:
"The treatment of anterior open bite is considered the most difficult task in the orthodontic specialty. These malocclusions are frequently subjected to orthognathic surgery, with questionable results. Multiloop edgewise archwire therapy, however, has been found to be effective in treating open bite malocclusions. Multiloop edgewise archwire therapy has been shown to be versitile and capable of correcting other malocclusions, such as Class II, Class III, deep overbite, and malocclusions with marked midline deviations."
Quoted from this link.
Anyway, yeah. I got this wire fitted on my lower teeth, while my upper braces got their usual tightening. There's a dull pain now, which is worse than usual on my lower gums T_T so I'm afraid I'd have to give up going to Toy Con altogether this year. I'll just have to enjoy it through your stories, pictures and videos ^^ so make plenty! ;D And have fun!

What the heck is that??
My ortho just told me she's gonna have me fitted for MEOW, to be installed by her partner Doc Rico this Saturday afternoon. I asked why he had to do it when she's the one I paid for the braces. She answered that her specialty is to distalize while his is MEOW. She tried to explain that it's a kind of wire that would help my overcrowded lower teeth move away from each other. She even showed me this weird wire that's shaped geometrically into strange squarish loops:
Ok, that's not as exact as it looked but it's the best I could do :p I tried Googling for more info about it but I couldn't find anything. I even asked a dear friend (hi Ron) and he wasn't sure himself, guessing it's a brand or something.
*sigh* so that means no Toy Con for me this year :( because I'm going to have to be in Laguna to get this MEOW thing, whatever that is.

I started with Jaykerrigan's album. Great meeting ya! Hope to see you in Granado Espada hehehe!
I'll add more pics as I find them :)

I went home to Laguna again after three weeks to get my braces adjusted. I met up with my Siobeh and we took a bus together. I owe her a movie, probably Indiana Jones.
The adjustment was the most painful I've ever had! Suffice it to say it drove me nuts T_T The ligatures are pure wires this time, so no colorful elastics :p
Sunday was fun though! I took part in the Claylettes workshop :3 you can read more here! Karla was simply wonderful and the info she shared was very practical and useful ^^

Thanks to all my friends and family who made my day giving me their birthday greetings!
Last week Derrick and I decided to celebrate our birthdays (being born eleven days apart) by watching Iron Man followed by a wonderful pasta dinner and yummy slices of the most sinful cake in Banapple.
Last Friday Sir Edwin allowed me to celebrate in Antarctica. Kel was absent(regrettable, since he's the one who introduced me to this circle of friends, and I was looking forward to the famous Kelbonara), and it was too late to cook :( so I advanced some money to be able to buy at least a Barrel from KFC. The Antarcticans graciously cooked enough rice (and believe me, it was a lot!) while Eric bought a tray of sushi and Erving bought some sodas ^^ Another notable gift would be the all the glompage I got that night XD And I enjoyed hearing Hao sing a Carpenter song with Eric, and sometimes Tonet, playing along on the keyboards.
Looking back, I am very thankful to have undeniable proof that God is always there for me. I've been to hell and back, but God made sure I'd come of it ok, stronger and wiser. The start of 2007 was a very datrk time, but I am lucky to be blessed by the good people and events that followed since :)
Thanks to all of you, my family and friends, you have made my new life a much better and happier one.

I left for Laguna Saturday morning, hopping onto a Batangas-Lipa bus to transfer to a jeep when I reach Joliibee Sto. Tomas. I could easily walk home from a jeep stop but my family insisted they pick me up :) Kuya Epy came along pretty quick and I rode in his motorcycle. I rested and ate a bit before going to the dentist to get my braces adjusted.
My usual dentist was unavailable so there was a substitute. If my ligature didn't snap I would have waited another week :p He resolved the poking wire at my upper right molar band, saying it grew longer midway because my upper teeth have moved. Unfortunately the poking wire in my lower molar band is still puncturing my poor tongue :( Now I'll have to wait another three weeks before I could have it seen to T_T my only consolation was the gold colored ligatures look pretty, and the adjustment doesn't hurt at all (I hope it's due less to the sub's incompetence and more to my growing theshold of pain).
I spent the rest of the weekend watching DVDs, playing DS(accidentally deleted Professor Layton sorry T_T) and watching the three babies dance to Sesame Street. I saw Achi's Noble Pink DS bought in Singapore, and I had my nails done by my lil sis. My toe nails are now Hello Kitty pink lol! Dad and mom also did some reflexology they learned at the seminars they were given ^^
Ok, enough randomness hehe :) I'm now back in Manila and will be staying here until I go back for braces adjustment on May 17.

Miker told me last night that he and Ranulf were going to Sanctuarium for Mina's wake. This took me by surprise, and I decided to go with them. We went there and wrote in the guestbook relaying messages from more friends in different communities who wished to extend their condolences. She died of breast cancer. I think she was 42 (I'll try to confirm this). You may visit Sanctuarium, third floor. We easily found it because there was a huge arrangement of flowers with the indicating that it's from the Animation Council of the Philippines.
You have touched so many lives Mina :) thank you for bringing together all the creative people in every community.

I altho learned that ortho wax ith luuurve! The inthide of my left molar band ith poking into my tongue tho much it'th all sore now :( I only got relief when I finally decided to try the wax which I got with my weird looking toothbrush with umm, thomething that lookth like a baby bottle cleaner, only much smaller.
I thoon after bought mouthwash and Pyodontyl too, along with a dental adhesive paste. I thtill couldn't bring mythelf to put 'deprotenized calf blood extract' whatever inthide my mouth though.
And timeth like these I'm glad I'm not a call center agent.
"Thabi ko, pinagthuthuthpetthahan kathi."

They gave it to us for joining their Machinima contest. I was hoping to win their gorgeous GE external disk for my new widescreen laptop ^^ I'm not sure much of the details at this point... will update when I get more info
Anyway I'm glad that I am able to buy the premium item pirate costume for my Adelina!
I'd like the ATP card itself but let's just say it's too... elusive for me at the moment :p For now I'm glad to get the costume! I only wish I can also get the hat, but if it's too difficult for me to get I'll just make an eyepatch for my cosplay. Anyway, look how much I leveled up since I got my Adelina that's my screenshot from my laptop, with the ATP wallpaper peeking underneath.
Jaclina Esperanza the Pirate signing out... NYARR! :3

Capt. Ricardo: "I told you I do not know where Bardi is! I only know he's here in Coimbra..."
Adelina: "Aye, me bonny lass, ye can put yer knife down now."
... Having my yuri harem for henchies = WIN!

Thankfully Sam got off early from his fashion show and joined us! He performed the sword demo with Ranulf and someone else(will update when I learn who).
I got the first two from Sam :) I'll upload more as I find them ^^ I cosplayed as Adelina Esperanza from Granado Espada.
I got there thanks to Joy (cosplaying as Brunie Etienne) and Dandan (cosplaying as Jean-Pierre) picking me up from Miker's place.
I was editing the movie there with Miker but sadly we didn't finish the revisions in time :( and Miker didn't join us to visit his family.
Victorian Valentine was a blast! I saw the most gorgeous people in the most gorgeous costumes I'm still squeeing the morning after :3
And us GE cosplayers had a wonderful time in the GE E-games booth, which we dubbed The Barracks.
And yes! We had yuri raep tiemz!!! Mon cheri Brunie and Bernelli harassed my dear Nikki it was delightful XD I'm so glad she agreed to join our GE cosplay photoshoot as Catherine the Summoner with our beautiful GE ladies Bea and Presea(in her delicious Elementalist outfit).
And I won as Baroness of the Ball while Shin won as Baron (I just love how all the men looked so dashing!). We duelled over the prizes after, and I am enjoying my spoils: my GE t-shirt hehehe!
I can't wait to add more pictures! :3

Here's to more rakets ^_^ squee! I am very thankful how I'm slowly getting the items in my wishlist, by my own professional perseverance, no less, and of course, God's grace.
Ranulf bought this laptop less than six months ago, so when he offered it as payment for the gigs he's been sending my way, I thought it's a good deal :)
I'm still feeling my way around :D Since it's my first time owning a laptop and all. I'll be installing Photoshop so I can work wherever I am: be it in my dorm, in San Pablo, or in Antarctica XD Getting a laptop has been justified by my (reluctantly) nomadic nature.
It's been getting more and more difficult having to dig up PSD files and whatnot from different desktops in my different locations. I've been on the move ever since I started college. I've been so busy and hardly stay in one place long enough that I still couldn't finish any games I've installed in my desktop (which I also happily bought less than a year ago ^^).
