Pokècollecting



Lately, I've been saving money to buy Pokèmon collectibles. From figurines to books. I've already the two volumes of Pokèmon Omnibus (I bought 'em at SM Muntinlupa's opening) and five new figurines from Comic Alley a while ago. I want to save more for a deck of Secret Wonders (The one with the Elekible and Magmortar case). Pokèmon Gashapons are cool too! How I wish there's a Toy Kingdom and or Toys 'R Us near our place. That cute Buizel plushie is luuuurve too! But I was informed that they only saw that at SM North. So far! Is P600 easy to save?

That's all for now, Evanesco!

Wut's Cool With Skul?

Random Thought # 2: Wut's Cool With Skul?

What's new in Muntinlupa Science High School, you ask? I'll tell you what's new. Weeelll, there are lots of DepEd NCR officials visiting our school. Our teachers, including the principal, have been so busy lately. That leads us to almost doing nothing, nothing but rushing our Mean MPS! Now I realize how hard an accounting job is! What does accounting have to do with MPS? You don't want to know.


The choir has so many "projects" this month! Contests to join, I mean. Last week we have to impress the representatives of the Alternative Learning System (ALS) demo teaching of Ms. Ivy to us, choir, and the Rondalla. Also, that time was the GPTCAi meeting of the parents. Some politics attended the meeting. Muntinlupa officials, especially Bunyi's representative and Ruffy Biazon, telling the parents that our choir will join his choir contest to be held at Festival Mall this coming December. I was hoping they would inaugurate the 3rd building.

Oh, Evanesco! Wargh!

A Filler of Random Thoughts by RECA

A while ago, when I was doing nothing, I decided to do something with my last spare of Cattleya Filler (gayahin ko si Nikki, "They should pay me for the advertisement"). With a pencil on my right hand, I begin to think what use I could make it. Then my post, Lovin' Pencil Style ~ The Material of Random Thinking, came into my mind. I decided to write there things that I'm currently thinking, songs I'm usually singing, or drawings of "different" nature. I already made three Random Thoughts posts a while ago. One was which I am numerating all Pokemon Gym locations and leaders, a post that I'd transfer here, and an unfinished comic strip of Shaine and Kokey killing each other. I was thinking of a stupid conversation of the two, then, killing each other... And I hope the others won't read this! I would only permit those of my very close friends!

That's all for now, Evanesco!

Peek, Copy, and Save

Peek. Copy. Save. The three cheats that you could use to help you answer the questions in Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?, a television game show made for adults to answer grade-school level questions. Different countries replicated this show that originated from the United States which first aired in February 2007.


Five fifth graders appear on each show and play along on stage. The player chooses one to be their "classmate", and is called upon for assistance. One child acts as a classmate at most two questions. Each contestant have three forms of assistance, two cheats and a save available for use once up to the $500,000 question, but not including the million dollar question.


Peek shows the classmate's answer and the player may chooses whether to follow it or not. However, they may only waste if their answer was the same as their classmate's. On the other hand, copy locks the classmate's answer to yours without being able to see it. A big disadvantage if your classmate is wrong! Save meanwhile credits the player's incorrect answer with a correct answer. This is used automatically on the contestant's first incorrect response. Once all three forms of assistance are used, the children no longer play an active role in the game.


The rules change slightly for the million dollar question. The player is only shown the subject of the question before deciding if they will continue or drop out. However, if they choose to see the question, they are no longer eligible to drop out and must answer the question, with no assistance from the classmates. A wrong answer on the question will cause the contestant to drop back down to $25,000.


If, at any point during the game, the player chooses to drop out or is flunked out, they must face the camera and state, "I am not smarter than a fifth grader" and only receives $25, 000. I wish I was a contestant too. The 9th ($300,000) and 10th ($500,000) question on the last episode of Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader on Q-TV were so easy. Like "The League of Nations was formed in conclusion to what war?" and "Mesopotamia is surrounded by two rivers. Namely, Euphrates and ______?"


That's all for now! Evanesco!

Humans Together, Friends Forever











No matter how hectic our lives are, we are definitely one big happy peer. I've never neglected my ol' friends, Tropang Pokemon. We still greet each other, help each other, and go home together. We have already planned for a mall shopping either at SM Tunasan or Festival Mall on our Christmas Party. I guess that now I'm still in Evans, I should stick to my new set of friends. They call themselves Tropang MPH (Multi-Purpose Hall), if my memory serves me right. Though, I think I'm very out-of-place with them. All they talk about is Rondalla, banduria, guitar, instruments, etc. I, myself, is considered as an MPH member. The choir practices there and all activities related to MAPEH takes place at the MPH. But I'll always be with Edrun, Nikki, and Nark. They're the ones I'm mostly close to. To my friends out there; "Hello and thank you for supporting & cheering me, agreeing with me, and sticking with me to good and bad times". I'll always remember you... even those at my previous school, I've never forgotten them.

P.S. Whatever happened to Jeanne!? Classmates, let's go to SM Tunasan at November 16, Friday! After classes, of course.

That's all for now! Evanesco!

Pokémaniac, Indeed





Thanks to Ate Jemma, I have played Pokémon Pearl. From the TV Report of the Red Gyarados to credits roll. Playing Pearl was mostly the only thing I ever did last sembreak. Mom had the impression that I am still at school. The second picture shows Valley Windworks. I recently caught a level twenty-two Drifloon that time. I woke up so early to catch it because that day, Friday, was my cousin's wedding. My starter Pokémon is a Turtwig. Great attack and defense. And I know if it evolves into a Torterra, it will learn a move called Earthquake!

Recently, I have loved Pokémon Contests and Poffin Baking or also called as Pokébread. It's fun mixing the Poffin, though it is tiring... with all the stirring. I just can't get enough of the Visual Round of the Pokémon Contests wherein you could dress-up your Pokémon. And the Dance Round too! Even if I'm missing some of the steps, whoops. The character looks cute when he wears his tuxedo. I wonder what the female version dresses... Oh, and I've competed in the Pokémon Contest with Fantina and the character's mother! I wonder why I'm only the one dressed formally.

Oh, well. I am currently catching Cresselia and Mesprit. I have encountered both a number of times already but they keep fleeing. I'm saving my Masterball for Regigigas. I wish my Riolu would evolve soon. I want a Lucario already!

That's all for now! Evanesco!

Lovin' Pencil Style~ The Material of Random Thinking



Pencil. Pencil. Pencil. I can't live without one. I have one right now here beside me. It's a blue one, which I got free from buying the new mango juice at our school canteen. Pencil is my material that can make me think random thoughts like new ideas for a new novel or a new chapter or an answer to a self-answered essay. Writing with a pencil can make you freely change your answers and/or ideas with just a simple eraser using the end of the pencil, if there is. I can't understand why everybody wants to use ballpen instead. Permanent, messy, and heavy. Pencil writings are easy to erase, I know. But you could write it again, right? On the other hand, if you erase ballpen writings, it looks messy enough. My love for pencil began when our principal at my previous school checked our notebooks. I used one of my classmate's ballpen. It was a sign pen. When I showed my notebook, the notes looked hard to read. There were heavy blotches of ink behind the page and couldn't read the note. I was told to repeat it again but it was just the same! More erasures! GAH!



Even at MunSci. Most teachers would want you to write with a ballpen. That's why I loved math and Sir Obsequio last year! He required us to write with pencils! I also love those teachers who allow me to use pencil instead.

Toinks. That's all for now. Evanesco!

Bakit...?

Hindi ko maintindihan kung bakit sinasamantala ng karamihan ang aking kabaitan... or... "I can't understand why my kindness to them was always taken for granted."translated by Nikki, peace. Kapag kailangan ng tulong ko, lumalapit sila sa akin. Kapag ako naman ang nangangailangan, halos walang pumapansin sakin. Nilalapitan ko ang aking mga kaibigan kung sila ay walang kasama o feeling lonely o namomroblema sila. Pero kung ako naman yung may problema..., wala lang... dedma... hayaan... Okay lang sakin yun. Basta 'wag nila ako pagusapan sa likod ko nang nalalaman ko. Total, sanay naman akong mag-isa, eh. Sige, go.

Isang magandang halimbawa si you-know-who ng buhay ko, Shaine. Halos naging matalik kong kaibigan siya nung unang taon sa high school. Siya kasi ang una kong nakilala sa aking unang taon. Naging close kami nang ilang linggo. Pero napunta din ito sa awayan. Sinigawan niya ako sa isang klase namin sa Science & Technology. Akala niya kasi ay kasama ako sa iuusog ang upuan kaya siya sumigaw. Edi sinigawan ko rin kasi 'di naman niya kailangang sumigaw, eh. Dun sa araw na yun ay napaghulo ko na siya ay plastik kasi inuutus-utusan niya ako at humihingi ng tawad para sa nangyari... nang parang pagalit.

Noon namang clearance signing sa unang taon ay may kailangan kaming bayaran sa utang namin sa pagpophotocopy. Umabot yata yun sa limang libo o tatlong libo. Para mapirmahan ang aming clearance sa photocopy, kailangang mabayaran yun. Naisip kong bayaran na lang ito upang hindi na mapatagal ang pagpapapirma. Nang bayaran ko iyon. Akala ko naman ay magpapasalamat sila. Pero hindi... "Ba't mo binayaran? Eh mangongolekta nga!" sabi ng isa. Ganun din ang sambat nung iba. Matapos iyon ay hindi ako binayaran ng mga walang'ya kong mga kaklase. Yung iba nagbayad. Wala akong paki sa mga bayad nila. Nadismaya lang ako kasi wala man lang nagpasalamat sakin.

Pinagbibigyan ko lahat ng aking naging kaklase sa kanilang mga paguuto sakin. Alam ko namang nambobola lang sila eh. Kaya ko lang tinutupad ang kanilang mga gustuhin ay dahil para hindi ako maging bad-shot sa kanila. Ako yung taong ayaw mawalan ng kaibigan kapag sila ay nasa akin na. Pero bakit ganun? Nasosobrahan na ata ang pananamantala nila... Tapos nagiging mabait na nga ako kahit galit ako sa kanila pero binabara nila ako.

Ayan... nailabas ko na ata yung lungkot ko pero lumala yata... hanggang sa susunod na post. Evan-esco?
