I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Quotable Quotes from Flicks
I love movies. So does everyone else, I would have to say. They exercise the rights of our fantasies to come as big as life. They enliven those little and big emotions which we can never let all out. Movies have these certain ownership on expressions that have been left unsaid in the real portrait of existence.
For honesty’s sake, I only have a handful of movies watched in the cinema. If I have to enumerate them all, maybe you could say I am pathetic. The first few ones are Filipino flicks in a Film Festival. I am talking about these movies:
+ Malikmata (I watched this with my sisters and cousins at SM)
+ Mano Po 2 (I was all alone in the cold)
+ Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
+ Milan (with my mother)
+ Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
+ D’ Anothers (with my co-Reflector staff)
+ Mission Impossible 3
+ The Omen
+ Pirates of the Caribbean: The Deadman’s Chest
+ Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
+ I am Legend
+ The Forbidden Kingdom
These are all. However, of course watching movies in cinema is no better than watching it at home with noisy yet fun friends and family, not to mention, for free.
Ever since writing became part of my life, I have included taking down the most quotable lines said in all the movies I have watched. It works for me. Really. I applied them in my skill. These are some of the “movie quotes” I have listed. Time to get my game on:
“Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever but the cautious may not live at all.”
- Princess Diaries
“Sometimes the biggest heroes come in small package.”
“Gimli: I can fight side by side with an elf.
Legolas: What about side by side with a friend?”
-Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
“Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers. I see in your eyes, the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship. But it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the age of men comes crashing down. But it is not this day! This day we fight. By all that you hold dear on this good earth. I bid you stand, Men of the West!
“It is our abilities that show what we truly are. It is our choices.”
-Albus Dumbledore(Harry Potter 2)
“Brother to brother, yours life and death.”
-First Knight (chivalric code)
“You can always trust a dishonest man to be dishonest. It is the honest man you should not trust for you never know when he would be dishonest.”
-Pirates of the Caribbean:
The Deadman’s Chest
“Immortality, take it! It’s yours!”
“Dark and difficult times lie ahead, Harry. Soon we must face the choice between what is right, and what is easy.”
-Dumbledore(Harry Potter 4)
“Men are easily seduced by power.”
“You have to accept that there are certain things you won’t understand right away.”
“All You need is love!”
“With the All Spark gone, we cannot return life to our planet. And fate has yielded its reward: a new world to call home. We live among its people now, hiding in plain sight, but watching over them in secret, waiting, protecting. I have witnessed their capacity for courage, and through we are worlds apart, like us, there’s more to them than meets the eye. I am Optimus Prime, and I send this message to any surviving Autobots taking refuge among the stars. We are here. We are waiting.”
- Optimus Prime (Transformers)
