Welcome Readers!

Welcome to the Mystic Blog of the only Mystic Nymph! I hope you have a blast reading my thoughts, and I hope you drop by again!


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.

The Road I wish to Tread

I can’t surely wait for that moment to finally come. It’s like I want to rush every little instance just to get to that very minute. Could somebody take me to a fast ride towards the future? Somebody take me there please.

I bet you don’t know what I’m talking about. It’s the graduation day. Yes, it is. It’s the time where I get to wear that legendary “sablay”, So to speak.

My very core can’t help but rush with intense excitement whenever I talk about graduation. I may be a bit unsure when will it happen, but one thing I’m quite sure of is that I will graduate. No matter what. I want to travel here, there and everywhere after graduation. And some of the places I want to visit are here in my list:


1.) France
2.) Las Vegas
3.) South Korea
4.) Singapore
5.) Hongkong
6.) Thailand
7.) Malaysia
8.) China
9.) Hawaii
10.) Texas
11.) Mexico
12.) Brazil
13.) New York
14.) Canada
15.) England

1.) Palawan
2.) La Union
3.) Boracay
4.) Baguio
5.) Camarines Sur
6.) Intramuros
7.) Cagayan de Oro
8.) Bohol
9.) Tagaytay
10.) Sagada
11.) Bukidnon
12.) Cebu
13.) Iloilo
14.) Makati
15.) Dakak

I’m actually thinking of more places but my mind just can’t get enough that it can’t think of anything more. I must admit that not every place I’ve included in my list is destined for me to visit. If it happens then I’d be so much happier, but if it won’t, it’s still fine. I’ll have to take extra effort and triple extra monetary measures to get what I want.

Within those places are restaurants I’m so after. I want to know how well they serve their delicacies and other specialties. I absolutely love food, but my body doesn’t really define how much I love food.

However, I think talks about food trippin’ should be reserved for another blog entry. Let me explore different restaurants and indulge in their sumptuous cuisines even with just their photos. Gotta research ahead.

The Unendorsed Products and Services

My sisters and I talk a lot about things that are weird and stupid. We can go insane just blabbing about senseless matters. It’s fun. It never gets me sick and bored.

I guess being all throughout confined in our house made us create topics which for some are unreasonable. We have nothing else left to do but of course laugh the boring hours away. Haven’t you noticed I’m always talking about boredom? Actually yes, I always does, cause I always am.

One of the very many topics we have discussed at home is the things that have been deprived of endorsements. But in fact, they need not be endorsed because they’re already part of the class A or B necessities. Even without models or endorsers, they will still get something from the people.

Imagine these things being aired on television through commercials. Wouldn’t you think it’s quite ridiculous to hear or watch well-known personalities introducing these products or services to us? See for yourself. Tell me what you think. We’ll see about that.

Here is the list of the unendorsed products and services:

1.) The Bible
2.) Match sticks
3.) Plunger (ginagamit sa baradong inidoro)
4.) Tooth Pick
5.) Fruits
6.) Vegetables
7.) Rice
8.) Bucket
9.) Electricity
10.) Fish
11.) Books
12.) Water Supply (like Davao City Water District)
13.) Hospitals
14.) Tricycle, Jeepney, Bus and Taxi Rides
15.) Funeral Homes

It’s Summer and I’m Getting Bored

It has been two weeks since we left the scorching heat outside our green academe. Worse, it’s been a while that my pocket is as empty as (gotta be ashamed about it)…my brain.
I find it absolutely difficult to go out on school breaks. That is why I hate semestral breaks, summer breaks and any other breaks, which for me is the major producer of tedious dullness. It’s really a bummer if I may emphasize. I get bored with summer. I don’t have anywhere else to go but my room and other places inside our house.
Pity me cause I can get poorer with this time of the year. I can’t save up. I really spend a lot during school days. That is why. No allowance. No money. I have no money. Do you think it’s all good? It’s totally not. There are still a whole lot of summer days ahead of me. That is why I’m letting my brain work on something productive to do.
I’m thinking of having a summer job. I’m actually working on my application form now. What’s lacking and unclear is my parent’s consent. Why am I feeling they disapprove my decision? I just want to do something beneficial. What’s bad about it? There’s nothing to be against with. I’m 18 and trying to be independent.
Beginning this summer, I’m not going to be just a mere couch potato and bed slave. I have to work and earn. I have to experience life outside home. Wish me well. Better yet, pray for me.

People Like These Get Into My Nerves

I'm wearing off. So does everyone else I guess. What am I murmuring about? I can't just remain taciturn about these things bugging my emotions. They're actually not things, they're acts to be exact. I'm cursing now. I know it's wicked but it's all I can do to get this distressing sensation out of my system.

Why did I say I'm wearing off? It's because I'm so tired of mingling with people who don't even know how to practice being kind and gentle. They totally wear out my patience.

As what I always do, I have again this list on the acts people behave that I hate the most. It may not be so dandy but at least I've let every crappy thing out of my chest. Here we go dudes:

1+ People who just shrug their shoulders when someone asked them about something.

2+ People who remain passive when something is talking. Those who don't listen.

3+ People who brag about being everyone's favorite. It may be verbal or otherwise.

4+ People who talk in front of the one they're actually talking about. perfect example of first-rate uncouthness.

5+ People who judge something or someone without even giving an effort to understand or find out what happened behind.

6+ People who don't appreciate efforts of those who want to get their attention. Pinapansin na nga, nag-iinarte pa.

7+ People who don't give others the chance to feel joyful even with those little things that give them happiness.

8+ People who are so insensitive that they consciously or unconsciously make somebody feel he or she is foolish.

9+ People who are posers. Those who act like someone they're not. They are just making themselves ridiculous.

10+ People who act like untouchables. They feel different that they start believing they're above others. Those who have the attitude assumed for a certain effect.

Now do you feel what I feel? I can't pretend to be muted with those things I've observed from the people around me. I get frantic deep within whenever people behave in such a spoiled way. This list is my self-proclaimed exclusive expose. Do you know some behaviors worse than these? Let me know. Let us together unveil the conducts only keen minds take heed.

Student Ad Congress 2007

Too late for the report? Yes, it is. But it ain’t news. It just suddenly pops out of my mind. I had been there in the 2nd leg of the Second Student Advertising Congress. By the youth. For the youth. Lousy news report.

It was actually held in Ateneo de Davao University’s Finster Auditorium almost two years ago, August 24, 2007. 4pm to be exact. My friend and I went straight from south to north just to witness that.

Their theme was “Combat ready for advertising wars.” Ateneo’s Mass Communication Club (I don’t know exactly what their club’s name was) prepared a skit showing off their skill in film and stage acts. It cracked me up. It was not that bad after all.

Different agencies confided their strategies in advertising as well. That was the best part. Since I have oozing passion for advertising, I was pretty much amazed with how the featured advertisers created their infomercials.

They have this technique of assaulting the emotions to grab the attention of their target market. It is a good strategy. I sure hope to apply it to my craft soon.

The best infomercial they featured was the one where the toilet is prominent. The narrator was talking about how dirty it was. You may think that the lesson they’re trying to deliver is to clean our filth and have proper hygiene. But it isn’t. It’s actually about abortion. There are irresponsible women who couldn’t, or who don’t have the heart to give the unborn a life that they deserve. They just flushed life in the toilet bowl.

That was a powerful one. But that was just one of the many. I know I could also make one. Especially that my course calls for it. Advertising could be my world someday. I have always wanted to be good at it. I am looking forward for the next Student Ad Congress to get some tips. I know it’s not the only way to learn, but it could be a great help.

Snatches of Conversation Overheard

Just like any other animal, I have as well this sharp sense of hearing. I can always find myself snooping around whenever I notice something odd. It may be people talking around about rumors. It’s human nature to be curious. For some reason, though I try to suppress it, I have this tendency of spying and trying to get honest answers. Sounds so desperate, but I can’t help it.

Those whispered truth that are meant not be heard by any, reach my ears. And as much as I want to ignore it, I just can’t. Overhearing it is not a bad thing. It’s their fault. It’s their random act of stupidity. Just don’t get caught that you’re listening. That’s a huge embarrassment. You might be charged of being “chismosa/o”

I will tell you about something I accidentally heard. It was a bare-naked truth that was supposed to be confidential. But I’m wondering if I actually just overheard it, it could be their intention to let me hear it. Who knows, right? Anything could be possible.

I was eating then with my friends. There were these two ladies with us in the table. The other one even smiled at me. Later on, I heard them talking about a girl involved in a controversy. I knew who they were talking about. Though they talked in a low tone, I can still hear them. They talked shit about me.

One girl spoke about how stupid I was. Of course, I know which side they were with. It was so obvious for me not to even notice. They were against me. I don’t know if they knew they were talking about me. I don’t know if they planned about it. I couldn’t care less. I was too daunted hearing things against me.

It’s not easy knowing how much others hate me. It’s as difficult as pushing yourself too hard to a hole, too small to fit you in. I think it’s a poor analogy. Forgive me for murdering my own sentiments.

When I listened to them, I tried hard not to show any emotion. I acted like I didn’t care, but in my depths, I was hurt. It cut through my heart. I was like a victim of a crime I myself consented. I allowed myself to be stepped down by these one-sided creatures.

Despite one’s urge to keep a secret, as long as it’s passed on to another, it’s unlikely to happen that the secret is best kept. Nothing is perfect. Each has its own flaws. Nothing can surely escape a fierce earshot…like mine.
