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.

Boredom Busters

Not being in school, means being in a rut! Being busy about something is always better than being busy doing nothing. I actually miss the feeling of being swamped with academic stuff. I miss whining about it, I should say. Just staying at home doing the same thing over and over again is beginning to kill me. I need to have some fish to fry. In other words, I'm dying to be employed. It really is true that human beings never get satisfied with what they have, where they are and whatnot. I'm cringing, cause I'm guilty as sin.

You see, I have this place all for myself every weekdays from 8am to 5pm. Aside from trying so hard to revise my thesis manuscript, all I do is just surf the web, download/watch movies and TV series, listen to my music library, think of what to cook for lunch, work on my household assignment, stare at oblivion, and worry about my safety. I'm like a slob! Those activities may not be exhausting, but they're unproductive. But anyhow, now I'll be sharing again the things that bust the boredom out of my system.

FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL: "Devastated Peter takes a Hawaii vacation in order to deal with recent break-up with his TV star girlfriend, Sarah. Little does he know Sarah's traveling to the same resort as her ex ... and she's bringing along her new boyfriend."

WAITING FOR FOREVER: "A Hollywood-set romantic tale of a guy who is content to live his life without a job yet with the love of his life, a young actress."

THE LYING GAME: "The show follows Emma (Chando), a kind-hearted foster kid who cant catch a break. She finds out she has an identical twin sister, Sutton (also played by Chando), who unlike Emma was adopted by wealthy parents and is seemingly living an ideal life."






AMERICAN HORROR STORY: "A family of three move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means of reconciling their past anguish. They move to a restored mansion, unaware that the home is haunted."

Be my buddy. Add me in your circle. Check out my profile.

I just finished downloading Community Season 1 and 2 -- Season 3 coming up next. I'm also currently downloading some episodes from Grimm (NBC), Once Upon a Time (ABC) and Teen Wolf (MTV). Let's see if I'll get hooked to these shows as well. I'll let you know.

In other news, I had a great day yesterday with my buddies. Hollers out to Ate Jael, Maicie, Christine, Ed Ralph, Ate Cyndi and Ella. I enjoyed some serious and mature conversation I had with Ate Jael and Ed Ralph. The dinner was also fantastic with all the hearty laughs and inane talks. I'm so glad I got to be close to these crazy and fun guys before I left UP. When my batchmates graduated, I promised to myself that I will be a full-fledged anti-social creature. However, they came into my life and saved me from solitude. That sounds so melodramatic, but it's really what I feel for them. I'm looking forward to be with them in the year-ender gathering we're planning to hold in Samal this 11th of December. I hope Mom allows me to have a sleepover somewhere this time.

Mama Bet’s Cook Book: Mixed


Baked Penne Pasta
Mom prepared this mouth-watering pasta as the main dish for her 51st birthday. She used San Remo Penne Pasta, Magnolia Processed Cheese (not sure with the name), ground beef, bell pepper and a little bit of Mc Cormick Spicy Italian Pasta Blend. The process is just the same with that of Baked Mac, I guess.


With my continuous pestering, Mom finally called the shots at letting our sweet tooth sink in these tasty crinkles during the long weekend. It was her first time to bake cookies so there were still some flaws. I’m pretty sure that with more practice, she’ll be able to perfect this recipe. She used Bensdorf Cocoa Powder for this.

Vegeroni Pasta
This is a Carbonara style pasta dish. Mom used San Remo Vegeroni Pasta. I find it so cute because it has three different vegetable pasta shapes and colors. Pardon the photo quality because what I’m talking about isn’t that visible in the picture provided. We had this for our Halloween celebration, by the way.

Mango Delight and Red Velvet Cake
I honestly didn’t enjoy the Mango Delight, because I am totally not a fan of fruity cakes and I don’t like mangoes. The one and only mango recipe that I have learned to love is Mango Float, and nothing else. About the Red Velvet Cake, Mom thought that the sourness overpowered the sweetness. Try again next time, Mom!


Waldorf Salad
This one’s supposed to have lettuce, but Mom forgot to buy some. Too bad, eh? I could have loved this salad better, if there were greens. As you can see, she made use of walnuts and fruits like apple and grapes. She also added raisins, cheese and of course the most important ingredient – the mayonnaise.

‘Til next time connoisseurs! I'm stoked to blog about my Mom's next kitchen adventures. Oh, don't forget to leave a word if you'd like to be a guest writer for my newest blog series. Ok? See you then!

Feeling and Sitting Pretty


The Things We Do For Fashion
About my day, my boredom took its toll on me. I was all alone at home utterly in a rut so I decided to be vain and play dress up using my HP Mini Camera, hence the noisy quality of the photos. I just enhanced them using the ever dependable, Photoscape. I used my favorite accessories as props, by the way. That neon green pair of feather danglings is the newest, and I just got a purple one of the same style. My collection of chic trinkets is slowly making its way to become bigger and better. This Christmas season, I will definitely add some Mia Casa glamour to it. I hope the gods are looking down on me for my fashionable endeavor. Good night, folks!


WANTED: Guest Writers for my new blog series. Preferably those who also have blogs. Who wants to

Of Assorted Thoughts and Stuff

I don't want to use the term "random" due to the fact that it has become an overrated word used for blogs. Just let me use "assorted" instead. So yeah, this post is going to be about different things running in my head. My mind is not in its proper state to elaborate on a single subject, as of the moment. My blogger-rific train of thought is currently unavailable. I'm kind of lost, because of my blogger's block that caused my week-long hiatus. I'm done with my explanation, let us now proceed to what I have to share:

This is how happy I am. My ghosts came out.

  • Last week was my first week to be out of school! It feels really great not having to worry about academic matters. Well, I'm not done with my thesis yet, but my adviser told me that it only needs some minor revisions. I can't wait to wrap it up. I can't wait to say "I'm all set and ready to march this April 2012!"

My first Camiguin escapade last February 2010. This was taken at White Island.

  • I'm planning to go with my sister Janine on their Arts and Society class' trip to Camiguin this February 2012. I miss that paradise a great deal! I wanna bathe in Sto. Nino Cold Spring, Katibawasan Falls and Arden Hot Spring one more time. I'll try to persuade my parents if they could grant me that wish. I'm crossing my fingers!

The Secret Circle Cast.  From left to right: Thomas Dekker as Adam, Shelley Hennig as Diana, Robertson as Cassie, Louis Hunter as Nick, Phoebe Tonkin as Faye and Jessica Parker Kennedy as Melissa.
  • This is one of the TV series I've been watching lately alongside The Lying Game, New Girl, Community, Pretty Little Liars and Breaking Bad. I like it because it involves teens and magic, but I can't say that I'm into it. This show's Pilot episode is a little off for me. Some acts and lines were corny and cliche, but I can forgo them and still give TSC a chance. I'm still on the 4th episode.

Group Messages. Photo not intended for copyright infringement.
  • Someone's been sending me group messages, and I kind of feel really annoyed. Why should she have to broadcast what she's doing through SMS. Duh, like we care! hope this girl finds it in her heart that group texts are already obsolete. Why can't she post it on Facebook or Twitter instead of sending it one by one to all her phone book contacts.

  • As a bonus, I'll also be sharing some of the tunes that I've been indulging these past few days. Some of it are from my favorite movies and TV series' Soundtrack. Here they are:
We Won't Run - Sarah Blasko
Young Blood - The Naked and Famous
DNA - The Kills
Could've Had Me - Lex Land
Move With Me - Savannah Packard
I Want It All - Jules Larson
Sleep Alone - Bat for Lashes
Reasons To Love You - Meiko
Paralyzer - Finger Eleven
La Vie En Rose - Louise Armstrong

That's it for now, blogger friends. I hope you enjoyed reading my drifless blog post for today. According to http://thesaurus.com, drifless is the synonym of random. I used it, because as I said I hate using the latter. LOL! By the way, I'm looking for someone who could kick off my upcoming blog series that will feature the various thoughts of different guest writers. Who wants to be the first to do so? Just give me a buzz on my Facebook Page. I'll be waiting. Much love!

Devouring Movies and TV Series

Apart from my Mom's scrumptious and delectable home-made goodness, I've been devouring a lot of movies and TV series these past few days, and that's because I'm no longer that stressed with school. What a relief that I can do what I love to do from now on. I only have thesis (due on November 10, 2011) to think about, and guess what, I don't want to talk about it. It's perfectly a colossal waste of time. I mentioned before that I'm not a movie/series buff, but I'm taking that back now. I am now a full-fledged couch potato. How 'bout that? The following productions are so cool, they don't bore me:

Two single adults become caregivers to an orphaned girl when their mutual best friends die in an accident.

Beth is a young, ambitious New Yorker who is completely unlucky in love. However, on a whirlwind trip to Rome, she impulsively steals some coins from a reputed fountain of love, and is then aggressively pursued by a band of suitors.

As adults, best friends Julien and Sophie continue the odd game they started as children -- a fearless competition to outdo one another with daring and outrageous stunts.

Informed he has terminal cancer, an underachieving chemistry genius turned high school chemistry teacher turns to using his expertise in chemistry to provide a legacy for his family... by producing the world's highest quality crystal meth.

A smarmy lawyer whose education is deemed void by the bar is forced to attend a local community college with an extremely eclectic staff and student body.

After a bad break-up, Jess, a quirky young woman, moves into an apartment loft with three single men. Although they find her behavior very unusual, the men support her and they become like family.

May I just add that Josh Duhamel is my new ULTIMATE HOLLYWOOD CRUSH alongside, Channing Tatum, Ian Harding, Nicholas D'Agosto and Milo Ventimiglia. I so love him in Life As We Know It. Aside from the fact that he's too-hot-I-can't-handle-him in that film, I also dig the story. Katherine Heighl and him make a really cute couple. I love that Holly and Eric's story began with friendship, and that they weren't in a whirlwind romance unlike other chick flicks I've watched. Another thing I love about it is that it's almost a two-hour film, which means his exposure is quite long!

What other interesting TV series and movies can you suggest me buddies? Give me a buzz!
