I really like experimenting with my hair. There was a time when I just went batshit crazy, cut most of my locks off and sported a Rico Blaco-esque hairstyle. Now, I’m in my BLONDE phase and so far, haven’t gotten tired of it yet. Some people have been asking me where I get my hair done and how. Well, this post is for you, my friends.
Channeling my inner butch, May 2009.
I LOVED THIS LOOK. It was much shorter when I had it cut the first time and I felt like a rockstar. A lesbian rockstar.
Miguel Alquiros of the Hairshaft Salon at The Podium has been my stylist ever since I started going steady with Jimmy last April 2010. He’s done an awesome job maintaining my usually stubborn hair and I really like his style because he explains to me the process, especially with this whole blonde thingamajig. Most people assume that when you want to be blonde, you just bleach your hair and that’s it. But you only do that when you want to screw your hair over and make it hate you (or if you’re going for that “kanto blonde” look). Fortunately for me, Migs actually cares about my hair and handles it with love. Here’s the whole process…
1. I entered the salon at exactly 12nn, June 23. As usual, I was offered something to drink, as with all their customers. I had tea because that’s my default drink.
2. They pre-lightened my 2-inch super duper black regrowth and it took about an hour. However, I’m dumb so I don’t have a photo of that. -__-
3. Washed my hair.
4. Blow-dried my hair.

I DON’T SPEAK KOREAN. Let me get this straight. I know a few words and phrases and I converse with my boyfriend in a some sort of English-Tagalog-Korean hybrid language but that’s as far as I can go. I’m currently self-learning Korean, not so much because I want to, but because I HAVE TO. You know, so I’d be able to have some normal conversations with my boyfriend’s family and friends without looking like a dyslexic imbecile, high on crystal meth.
But you know, I try! I really do! I speak Korean (with my boyfriend only) as much as I can, even though my grammar is wrong and I fail at looking cute. Check it out m fail on video!
I swear I can normally do better than that!!! I even know bad words!!!
Some of those who went to Toy Con 2011 are probably wondering who the two pretty Japanese twins were. Well, wonder no longer. They’re Miwha and Michiko Haga, Japanese-Filipino models who have appeared on some TV shows, ads and events. And yes, they’re my girls (no, I did not give birth to them -__-).
Miwha and Michiko. I know, it’s kinda confusing.

Actually they’re not otaku or cosplayers or anything (they were, about 5 years ago). They’re true-blue TVXQ/JYJ (Kpop) fans and I met them in the fandom. I went to the Saturday event with Miwha because she just came from a fitting for a shoot so we decided to just meet her there. Next thing you know, OMG FLASHES EVERYWHERE!!! Anyareeee?!?! People seemed to like her a lot, even if she wasn’t cosplaying or anything. And just before we left, the producer of Cosplay Nation invited us to join the shoot the next day. O_o
