Happy Holidays!

Let's see... tomorrow I go to the bank to check if my payments have come yet, namely the salary i deposited and the payment for page 6 of "Attack!"

Then I go to Western Union to claim my payments for the 4 strips I made for HK.

And I'm presently working on my projects, with my main job as my first priority, of course ;) where I finished presenting the webpages in jpg's with a few tweaks to my satisfaction. Then I am tasked to check out sites and study them to be a better web designer. Fun! :D I looooove my job (*hearts*)!

I'm also tasked to make about 12 strips. Ack! I hope I can do them all in time!

Wheeeee! Prosperous New Year! heheheheh!

Narrator: "Once again, it is not Santa who has come to Larry's door, but
this time a savage Norseman."

Larry: "Who are you?"

Viking: "I'm a viking! And I've come to take your land, oh yes! I've
come to take your land, and I've come to burn your crops and steal your

Peach: "I'm from the IRS! And I've come to tax your ..." [Slam]

Larry: "Oh, Santa! I can't wait for you to come, I just can't wait for

you're the ones!"

Bankrobber: "Wait a minute, I can explain!"

Viking: "We've changed!"

Santa: "Nobody messes with Santa! You know that don't you!? You've been

Peach: "Did you claim that?"

Larry: "Merry ... Christmas!"

You are Form 0, Phoenix: The Eternal.

"And The Phoenix's cycle had reached
zenith, so he consumed himself in fire. He
emerged from his own ashes, to be forever

Some examples of the Phoenix Form are Quetzalcoatl
(Aztec), Shiva (Indian), and Ra-Atum
The Phoenix is associated with the concept of life,
the number 0, and the element of fire.
His sign is the eclipsed sun.

As a member of Form 0, you are a determined
individual. You tend to keep your sense of
optomism, even through tough times and have a
positive outlook on most situations. You have
a way of looking at going through life as a
journey that you can constantly learn from.
Phoenixes are the best friends to have because
they cheer people up easily.

Which Mythological Form Are You?
brought to you by Quizilla

C3CON 2003!!!

I went home friday night and rested enough to print at least 50 copies of my indies on saturday.

saturday I went out and got my indies printed at a discounted price. Then I went home and printed the colored covers with my newly refilled printer. My bro kept hovering about me watching what's going on, so I let him help me by folding the indies after I stapler them. He also wrapped them i plastic and added the freebies after I showed him sample. The advantage with autistic people is that they are very meticulous with their standards so the quality of the work is unquestionable. and they don't stop until the job is done.

later it turned out that I miscalculated and was 7 covers short. My bro is very annoyed. he kept "Seven!" because there are seven coverless copies laid out on the floor. he won't stop saying "Seven!" as I hurriedly dressed to buy more papers and print more covers. by that time though all the xerox paces are closed so I just printed the colroed covers and decided to bring them with me to manila where i can print them when I need to again.

I then worked on my costume. My bro was very interested again. One thing about him is that he's an otaku longer than I am, but i guess it's not exactly something to encourage him to go hardcore on heheheh! So when i slowly found myself turning into a comix/anime fanatic (mostly because of friends) I let him in on the fun as much a I can. He held up wilson Tortosa's drawing of Jun from g-force as I checked on the finishing details of my costume. He kept saying Gatchaman book". I told him Wilson will give me the #1 BOTP for dressing up. And that alone is prize enough for me :)

Sunday I woke up late because I stayed up last night preparing and packing for another week in makati. When I did I asked my fam how to pull off the hair. I said i'll go to the parlor if there's no other way. Mamy tried to use this hair iron. it curled the ends of my hair a little, but we were worried it would be gone in the 2 hours that i'll travel from laguna to manila. i also decided to wear my costume shirt because changing shirts would mess up my hair.

Tita Apple came up and found out in the middle of our dilemma and eventually we figured out to just twist curls in pins and spray net the whole thing to keep the hair during the trip. it's hilarious how everyone looked at my hair as I commuted for 3 hours from home to boarding and finally to megamall :D it was pretty hectic because I had to get my indies sold as well as register at the cosplay booth.

Pretty Camy saw me and immediatel brought me to Wilson Tortosa. It's so amusing seeing how Wilson got so excited when he saw me. He's so happy and hyper! He quickly pulled me to sit beside him and introduced me as his 'mascot'. It's so hilarious! And I got my free autographed BOTP #1! I already feel like a winner, contest or no :) We later went onstage to show our costumes. Being my first time to cosplay I was so nervous! But the cheers from Blitzworx ang Glashouse Graphics made me feel good enough to WORK my costume on the ramp! Whooooooooo!

I basically have no idea if jun of G-force has any trademark poses or quotes so I just treated it like another fashion walk and showed them the transmute bracelet (my thanks to Cathy the Mimiru cosplayer for the gorgeous bracelet!) as I posed. Then just said "Atashi wa Jun, Gatchaman" (I am Jun, of Gatchaman). It was fun :D When I got offstage some people approached me asking if I was model 'because of the walk' I did. I laughingly answered "Used to, but I'm an artist now". And it's nice when peoplewalk up to me and recognize either my character ("hey! You're Jun/Princess from Gatchaman/BOTP/G-Force!") or as creator of Jac Strips. Some vene recognize me thru Friendster!

After exchanging text messages Cathy and I found each other at the "Biologically Female Dressing Room". That's when she gave me the shiny metal bracelet for my transmute band. and I did the body art using my make up crayons for her costume. I love her hair! She had it cut just for the cosplay! And everyone was so impressed with her mimiru costume! And the sword is very well-made as well as the rest of her costume. Her resourcefulness never fails to wow me when it comes to cosplay. She's also very effcient in planning how to pull it off, where to shop for materials, etc. She's a good cosplayer, and most of all, she's having fun doing it :)

Naturally people wanted to take her picture for her costume. And she gamely posed perfectly in character. I get pleasantly surprised when the people with their cameras would ask me to join her in the picture, because people often think i wasn't wearing a costume! hahahahah!

Deck arrived near closing time when ranulf and I was on line for this comodo something game. I met with Deck because they won't let him in for free (even if there's only half an hour left before the event is over!). He took a picture of me too as I posed beside Wilson's drawing of the character i was cosplaying. We had pizza and bottomless blue pepsi because I haven't eaten anything all day except a chicken sandwich (my breakfast), and a slice of pizza swiped from Glasshouse Graphics (wheheheheh!).

We looked for Cathy after picking up my stuff from the indie and Glasshouse booths because Deck offered to drive us home. it's nice of him to even agree to drive Cathy to her home a bit farther South before driving me to the dorm. We talked about the c3con on the drive home, and cosplaying. And Cathy's amused that I enjoyed cosplaying and my considering to do more cosplays. The pink/white g-force girl costume is my one option. the Ate Whompers from Cat's Trail is another. But it all depends on how easy getting the materials would be. There was even the Persephone from Matrix Reloaded.

This morning I got 4 requests on my friendster! Most of them from people I met at the C3con, and another from yasmine, the newest Komikera! Wheeeeeeeee!

Now excuse me, I have to pick up something from ortigas and get back to work. Ack! I haven't even had anythingt eat yet today!

Okay, just had my lunch at KFC :D ....

Az, thanks for being there with me! C3Con gets much more fun when you're there!
Syeri! I owe you 4 strips :D Thanks for the valuable help at the indie booth! Idol!

SOLD OUT!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks so much!


Last Friday I reached home 9pm. I slept because I got tired lugging abig bag all the way from Makati :D

Last Saturday I got online and worked on Ning's Strip 12 revision and a new Strip 14 for Usapang K, the colored comic strips that are printed in Hong Kong (The Sun and Hong Kong times).

Last Sunday we went to the comics festival where mom is catering. Beya took Mikko to explore the awesome place while I face painted and did body art. A family of four even asked me to do a caricature for them! I was so lucky to have brought some papers by accident and got to borrow pencils and erasers from Carlo Pagulayan and Wilson Tortosa to draw the caricature. They were so happy they paid me P100 and asked for our business card where we offer catering (Mamy), Face Painting (Bebe) and Caricatures (me). My thanks to that family!

And thanks so much for buying my indies! I honestly thought no one would want to buy them because the print wasn't dark enough on the coored edition. That's why I sold them at a discounted price. I'm planning to print this Saturday at least 20 colored cover-edition in the clear mode with xmas greeting inserts to sell this sunday at C3Con! wheeeeeee!

And thanks Wilson for the xmas card and gift! The bracelet I'm wearing right now, the doremi cellphone accessory is now attached to my cellphone!the original g-force girl drawing! My bro loves it! I promised to give him the g-force comics you'll give me at the C3con :) he loves G-force kasi.

and this is the last day of my first week of work :) I'm going home after I pick up whatever sales I managed from ComicQuest Megamall. My thanks to everyone who bought my very first indie. And I invite the rest to buy one too. Or more if you want to give them away from Christmas or something. Like my friends did. Cheryl Ching ordered 20 copies and asked me to insert a xmas card inside. Of course I gladly obliged :) so every colored cover of "Jac Strips For You!" come with a free mini xmas card! Wheeeeee!

So how was my first week of wiork as a web designer for EverSunSoft? It's great! The boss is in California and he directs us by chat. And he's cool! And I guess in a way I'm thankful I have to interact with him through chat because I usually feel intimidated talking to a boss face to face :) at least at first. And twice this week they had pizza hut delivering into our office! So I didn't have to buy lunch! Yesterday was the second time, ordering at 4pm. I took home the leftovers, because i noticed that last time they just throw it out with the trash. So I had 4 slices of family size pan pizza and a half-empty 500ml Pepsi for dinner :) i wonder if mamy's gonna kill me for this? I can see it now: "You call that dinner???"

When I do have to buy lunch there's these food wagons at the street where I can buy the usual carinderia fare at the usual carinderia prices. I stuffed myself silly with P12 red spaghetti one time ;p

So it's fun! Wheeeeeeee! I look forward to working for this company some more!

DECEMBER 1: First Day Work in Makati

I moved in the night before (Thanks Mico for carrying my huge bag all the way to the boarding house!). My roomie came in soon after. We watched her anime vcd's until 10pm and slept. She went off to work before 5am. I read her indies, mangas and Questors until it's time for me to get ready for work.

I got there at 9am to find the office locked. I went back down to the lobby after texting a co-worker that I'll wait for them there. After 2 hours I went back up and found them there. They said they never got my messages. Weird.

Anyway I quickly settled in my newly assembled PC. The free DSL quickly filled me with bliss ;D Was chatting with the boss soon enough to get my tasks for the day outlined for me. Which got me installing some programs into my PC. It wasn't that hard because my co-workers are nice and set-up my PC really well.

Soon enough I was sending work over the net to my boss in California where he comments and tells me where and which to tweak. Fun! When 6pm rolled around he let me go to continue the work tomorrow.

That's when I hurried to Greenbelt 3 to meet Deck and Mika at Kitchen. Deck called and asked if it's ok for him to order for me. I said yes, trusting he knows my taste, and got on a jeep to get there as fast as I could.

After getting lost a few times (Ryoga Syndrome) I finally reached the place. And saw the pasta Deck ordered for me.

Deck is SO dead.

He ordered me Black Pasta. Yep, the one with squid ink as main sauce. Ack! I should have known! It's so like him

After strangling the Black Pasta Pusher Mika and I had a lot of fun talking about what a small world it is, especially with Az all over the place. And comic strips. And drawing. And cosplay. And plenty of fun stuff, including ganging up against Deck. Payback time!

wednesday is fiesta in Wawa/del remedio so beya took me and mikko to her friend there to eat (yummy! free eats! wheee!) and chat.

after that i went directly to our fastfood place (even if it's closed for the day) to meet with someone who's supposed to take me to watch Matrix Revolutions. Turns out he came earlier and found the place closed so he went to my house. Good thing my Achi told him i was waiting at the orig place. we eventually met there by bebe's text :)

unfortunately we found that the Matrix movie is already replaced by local movies. He decided to libre me toinstead. He even let me take the last 2 slices home. I bought net cards(so i can net and post here and stuff ;) and mikko's burger.

I got home and gave my kuya the pizza slices for arranging the ornaments in our christmas tree (after I set it up) before proceeding upstairs to give bebe their burger and her netcard.


Thursday I finally got up the nerve to finish all three projects in one morning. but didn't have time to send them. deciding to send them now i went to tindahan to find mamy there. she told me to take her to megamallafter the rush hour.

after texting gerry that i can't make it (nuts, i didn't get to see jeffrey and carlo!) i ate lunch and went off with mom for her errands. we got home before 10 pm kanina.

we chatted a bit, wanwan gave us chocolates (yummy!). and I played Noxas a warrior this time instead of conjurer. Then mamy asked for some physical therapist session. by the time i'm done it's time for free net! wheeee!

Yesterday I went to Makati to meet with a friend to look for a room-for-rent that we can share. I got hired to work in Makati. She also works in Makati and told me she's looking for a roommate. We had brunch in Mcdo discussing about the rooms we'll check out, the areas, and the ceiling price. We're both glad to agree on our ceiling price :) And off we went on a quest to look for a decent, safe, affordable room we could share!

We first went to Santillan and the first place we checked out (she has a few leads because she's been looking for a place for two months now. Wow! She's very efficient :) actually looks the most promising. If we don't find a better place before Nov 30 I'm putting my money down on that one :) I start work dec 1. Thanks for the congrats dady Az!

She and I talked a lot about our lives, families and other stuff and I've said "I'm getting creeped out" a few times because we have so many parallelisms, but I'm mostly amused at how I could relate to her. I really hope this roomie thing works out :)

After that we parted ways and I went on to my future office to meet the employees. The office is very new and very... 'spacious' (as derrick puts it). but the place is cool, and it has dsl! and Sir Danny (my contact) is the coolest! He's the one who hired me after interviewing me by chat and gave me tests I submitted online :)

i went to megamall after to meet with mom and wanwan. i had my works photocopied to be submitted to dady Az by having them picked up at Comic Quest (my thanks to Mike Simbulan and Raquel!). I also dropped off Tintin no da's vcd's and heavy metal so she can get them back na :) Az texted me later saying he picked them up na! Whee! So nice! Then my fam and I went home :)

"White Flag" by Dido (saw its video. amusing)

I know you think that I shouldn't still love you,
Or tell you that.
But if I didn't say it, well I'd still have felt it
where's the sense in that?

I promise I'm not trying to make your life harder
Or return to where we were

Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

I know I left too much mess and
destruction to come back again
And I caused nothing but trouble
I understand if you can't talk to me again
And if you live by the rules of "it's over"
then I'm sure that that makes sense

Well I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

And when we meet
Which I'm sure we will
All that was there
Will be there still
I'll let it pass
And hold my tongue
And you will think
That I've moved on....

Wheeeeeeee! Everything went out great! We went to the kiddie party venue half an hour early and had kids and moms lined up before we could even set up!

I'm really glad we spent the night before practicing skin painting. I painted a unicorn on the birthday celebrant. A mom requested a rose 'tattoo' on her ankle, another wanted the seahorse she saw on my portfolio. Achi painted yinyangs on the boykids and flowers and butterflies on the girlkids. Wan listed down names of people who got the skin paint, their designs, and their artists.

Everyone is satisfied with our work. The kids were afraid at first, not knowing what to expect. But as soon as the first kids are done the other kids gathered all around us showering us with requests and pushing each other to be the first one painted. Most of the boykids requested me to paint Yu-Gi-oh stuff I copy from their cards. Why the heck is the Blue Ice Dragon so popular??? And I also copied a Dragon Master from another kid's card. I also got a lot of unicorn requests from the girls. And rainbows.

I spent the days since I was hired Tuesday stressing and panicking. Convinced that I never did it before and therefore could never do it. While Achi efficiently made a lot of research about face painting and we both formulated plans about what materials to buy/get and from where. We also made research on how much to charge and what rate. We even saved a lot of designs, and I started copying them onto a portfolio to show the clients. Manually. Because I'm still out of black and can't print them out and besides they're low-res.

We worked for 3 hours non-stop. Looking at Wan's list we found out we painted all the kids there and some adults, with kids having up to 4 paintings each. Yay! We're fast! I'm really glad to know we can pull it off. And the kids had so much fun. We laughed when we saw the kids who are too afraid are prodded by their parents to get themselves painted. As soon as we're done and handed them the mirror they're happy and wanted to show it to their friends :)

We were so grateful when we can eat while the guests enjoy the last event which was a magic show. When the party ended the host's assistant handed out their business cards to the guests. Seeing that I asked Achi for the business cards she printed which were meant to be for those who asked for it and gave out our cards to the ones who haven't asked for our card. It turns out they didn't notice we have cards and had different parents asking me for more cards.

We charged half-price because it's our first time. I was still kinda sad because the materials we bought are expensive, especially the Snazaroo that cost me P350 for basically 6 piso-sized paint pans that I had to travel all the way to Glorietta for before the big day. But our improvisations of our skin art kit saved us money against buying the full Snazaroo Kit for P10k! We even got to pay Wan for her assisting us :)

Woohoo! May bago na kaming raket! nyahahhahahahahah!
