To be honest, I never heard of the term before until yesterday. Two of my classmates (girls) were arguing about who knows what, one word caught my interest and that is the term wapanese. When I got home the first thing I did was look for its meaning and what I found totally bowled me over literally. It was funny you know, the kind when it only hurts when you laugh I don't know whether those authors were basing it on facts or just writing down their own opinions as ruthless as the may be some of them actually hit the mark.

"Wapanese have a tendency to mercilessly butcher the Japanese language, throwing around random words and phrases while completely ignorant of what they mean."

I am guilty as charged! Though I'm only limited to using honorifics such as chan, chin, san etc. I gotta admit it sounds rather nice and cute. What irks my taters though are those people who rudely assumes that I find profound pleasure in reading their messages composed of each English word punctuated with Japanese ones. Now don't get me wrong I have nothing against it, it's their business and I don't have business butting into other people's business. I just wish that they would stop talking to me that way it gives me a headache and one of them even called me stupid just because I failed to add the "Kawii Desu Ne!" in my sentence. For them people like me who doesn't know the meaning of kawaii are stupid.

"Any individual with an unhealthy obsession with Japanese culture without a reasonable amount of knowledge about Japan a
nd tries to become Japanese at any expense."

I'm having enough trouble with my own two different cultures adding another one will likely to be the cause of my self destruction.

"Thinks that Japanese men are the sexiest shit in the whole planet."

Erm...I think it just boils down to one's own taste but I do think that Hiroyuki Sanada is sexy I remember posting Mr. Sanada's picture in one of my other blog account saying that he is one of the sexiest guy FOR ME. One girl came out of nowhere and was all ready to start fight with me she keeps insisting that blah blah is definetly the sexiest guy ever to walk the earth. Now I don't expect people to actually agree in every word I say but really who freaking cares? If she thinks blah blah is the sexiest so be it no need to massacre all the people who thinks otherwise.

"Are obsessed to a mentally unstable level with anything connected with, like the Japanese language, Japanese customs, and Japanese cultural fads to the point that they smother themselves with these in order to bury their own origins."

Uh-uh I know a few who claims to be half Japanese and...okay I don't have anything nice to say so I'll just shut my mouth and forever hold my peace.

Perhaps, some Filipino teenagers had forgotten about their own country's history you know the part where Japanese soldiers abused, raped and murdered our women. Yeah, yeah let bygones be bygones it's all part of our history now anyway so it's okay to worship them now and pretend to be one of them.

I treasure and love my online friends not because of what they like and what they dislike we have the right to choose the things we want to get obssesed about but I just wish others will stop insulting me just because I happen to have a different interest.

My First Skin

Actually my second attempt. I'll be updating my gallery which is located at the 'Lavender' page I'll try to come up with different skins once every week-hopefully- and have Chaos code it for me. And assuming that someone will actually like to use my skins, feel free to give me a nudge. Comments, suggestion and violent reactions are greatly appreciated.

Here's a preview of the skin. Just click the icon to view original size. Code isn't done yet.

Custom Vs. Deviation

I woke up unusually early today, left with nothing to do, I browsed my baby photo album and found a particular picture that brought back memories. It was during my early school days we were celebrating United Nations Day and I remember my parents having a big argument about what costume should I wear. My Mom insisted I wear a traditional Filipino costume, Mexican costume was my Dad's pick. So they settled it by having me wore a Mexican top and Filipino skirt and I waved two different flags representing my two countries.
There was a point in my life that I became confused on what culture to embrace and what language to speak. Whenever I did something worth praising my Dad would say; "oh that's because she's Mexican" my Mom would argue "no that's because she's Filipina". Hearing them go about it on and on made me realized that nothing of those really matters I mean I wanted them to praise me not because I'm this and that. Every choices I made until now was mainly influenced by my diverse culture. And now I refuse to be further influence, accept nor believe in the hand-me-down concept of life.

Page is Done

Woot! At last my page is done yay! Now the problem is what to write, this is the part where I often get stuck I'll be racking my brain trying to think of an interesting topic to write and despite the psychological torture that I'm causing my self, the result is still the same....inane scribbling.
Just this morning my head was full of ideas on what to write for my first official post but the moment I sat down in front of my pc those said ideas just came flying out of the window along with my dog's rubber birdie toy. And now I'm left with nothing but jumbled words that I'm trying desparately to sort and create at least a decent sentence. I don't know why I'm making a big deal out of this though when I'm not even sure that someone will actually spend their time and read my doodle. Come to think of it I'm also facing the same dilema when it comes to writing essay for my literature class, my teacher would often say; "you can do better than this" or "what kind of writing is this?" and if I put all my efforts and stretch my tiny brain to it's limit she would give me a look that says; you didn't write this did you? OMG!
