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.

Play The 7 Links Challenge

Before anything else, let me thank Ms. Wi of A Single Girl's Musings for inviting me to join this fun blog game. I have a soft spot for this girl, because she's also from Davao City. I assume she first noticed Mystic Nymph when I posted about Photoscape in my Something Very Short (SVS) blog feature primer. From then on, she became one of my avid readers who never fail to leave their thoughts down low when they have time. A million thanks to you, girl! I hope I didn't sound like Pilita Corales with that statement. Chuckles. Ok, let the game begin!

1. The Most Beautiful Post: Mama Bet's  Cookbook Episode 1

My dear mother, Emilie.

I consider this as my most beautiful post because I featured my Mom and her cake here. It was also my first episode for the newest bait in my niche called Mama Bet's Cookbook. She has baked a lot of sweets after that, but I haven't blogged about them due to lack of resources for documentation. Too bad! It's never too late! Check it out again soon.

2. The Most Popular Post: I'm A Woman and I Hate These Styles

I don't like Tattooed Men.

According to my blog stats, this post has already garnered 1,658 pageviews because of the men on tattoo. It's about trends that men love which I hate. I dished out a list of six styles that are very unmanly, at least for me. It's my version of Shine's Trends That Women Love Which Men Hate. Tessa of Fashion Facile also shared her views about it in her blog.

3. The Most Controversial Post: Unattractive Women

Natalie Dee's property.

I'm not sure about this though, but I think I've offended some women in this post. I also think I sounded like a bully who's so high-minded. But honestly, I didn't have any intention of coming off that way when I wrote that piece. That was solely to present my own list of ten unattractive traits that some women have. If I've hurt you with this, I deeply apologize. I hope you accept it.

4. The Most Helpful Post: Having Blogger's Block?

Pretty please let us blog more.

We experience blogger's block, more often than not. We get distracted, and sometimes it gets difficult for us to drift back to our beloved vocation (blogging). I'm sure you also get indignant about not having your daily fix of blogging like I do. Interruptions certainly are very disturbing! In this post, I compiled some tips that I deem are very beneficial to us, bloggers. I gave a list of ten.

5. A Post That Was Surprisingly Successful: Bollywood Fashion

My headless Bollywood Outfit Shot.

I blogged about my thoughts about Bollywood Fashion in this post (obviously). This is one of my effortless write-ups. By that I mean, there were no enough original words to describe the topic. I'm a wordy type of person, and when my posts don't have loads of texts, I get disappointed. But to my surprise, it became one of my posts that gained more than a dozen of unique comments.

6. A Post That Didn't Get The Attention It Deserves: Creative Juice (My Intense Devotion for ART)

Salvador Dali's Persistence of Memory.

This post is actually part of my Top 5 most viewed posts according to my blog stats. I wrote this back when I  still had two followers. I think it only gained a number of page views because of the images. They didn't read the texts that were written whole-heartedly. That's what I don't like about some bloggers. They just drop by without paying attention to texts. They only look at the pictures, and that's it.

7. A Post I Am Most Proud Of: Mistaken Identity of Davao City

I love Davao City!
I'm proud of this post because I managed to lift the name of my beloved city to the whole world. I mentioned three distressing misconceptions they give towards Davao City gets, and then I hashed out their wrong ideas by highlighting every beautiful things Davao City can be truly proud of. Our city doubtlessly has an abundant array of good quality food and places that will surely make your life pleasing and delightful.

One of this blog game is to tag seven bloggers to do this as well. Too bad, I can't tag all my dearest readers and followers. Without further ado, I'm tagging...

Lavinia of A Dash of Lav
Glenn of Gencified

This is such a great idea! It gets you thinking about your posts, but it also lets your followers find out more about your blog. I do not like tattoos either. I can handle one(a small one), but men and women too for that matter do not need tattoos all over their bodies! I just had to go read your post on this and I absolutely AGREE with everything you posted! I hate it when guys wear clothes so big that I can see their boxers or so tight I can see the outline of things I should not be seeing. I can understand about being fit and defined but some guys take this way too far and look gross (sorry). Armpits and disgusting I agree I should not see hairy armpits.
I also read your post on unattractive girl qualities and I totally agree with you on this too. Even as a girl being friends with girls who possess those qualities is a drain. I can understand a friend being excited about something and going on nonstop about it occassionally or on a special occassion, but someone who dominates the conversation all the time is really being a friend to me. And those that are overly emotional just wear you down because you never know what to expect.
There's a lot more that I can say here but I think we all get the point and I do not think you came off mean in that post either.

That cat got a LOL! Provocative posts are always good .

Yay, thanks for accepting the challenge! I'm a bit late to comment though, was kinda busy during the weekend haha :)

And I so agree with you on how some bloggers just roll by and drop those "generic" comments. I mean, it's so easy to tell who actually takes time to read and who comments just to advertise their blog lol.
