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.

Child’s Play: Graduation Outfit

What I wore on Graduation Day:
Dress – Sabella RTW
Shoes – Mendrez
Bag – G by Guess
Bangle – SM Accessories
Earrings – Gift from Mom
Sablay (Sash) – Hablon

Everything that I wore that day (except for the bag) was Pinoy made -- from the dress, shoes, bangle and Sablay.

Here’s a quick post before I’ll have my hiatus again. It’ll just be a short-lived break anyway, since I’m going to be busy processing matters for my “job seeking escapade” this week. And oh, I will also be one of the facilitators for a Youth and Kids Camp organized by our church. The event will be held from the 17th to 19th of May. I pray that we nail it perfectly well, so we could be able to give the participants a summer that’s divine and worth-remembering.

Anyhow, this is another graduation post but this time it’s about what I wore. I don’t know with the graduates from other UP system units, but UP Mindanao graduates are required to wear beige or cream dress and shoes for girls; and beige barong and black pants and shoes for boys. The reason for wearing neutral colored garments is to lay emphasis on the symbolic Sablay. We’re not allowed to wear any other ostentatious accessories other than the latter stated.

I selected this ruffled neck chiffon dress with pagoda sleeves because it looks vintage and feminine. My dress is already very detailed, that’s why I decided to pair it with this simple 3-inch beige shoes. The catch is, we also needed to put on stockings and I hated it because its silkiness gave me a tough time walking. I didn’t know how to deal with it with flair considering I don’t normally wear high heels. Luckily, things folded quite nicely that day.

I wore the bangle and the bag only before and after the ceremony; because like what I’ve said earlier, we had to highlight the Sablay all throughout the program. What I love about my bangle from SM Accessories are the faux gold and diamond embellishments. I’m just totally in love with anything shiny, shimmery and golden. I also got thrilled when I saw Karylle (A Filipino celebrity) wearing the same arm candy in red hue in one episode of It’s ShowTime.

I was so happy with everything that I donned that day; because apart from The Sablay, nobody sported the same dress, shoes and accessories as I did. Basically, what we had to pull off for our graduation outfit is the fashion statement called “Pop of Print” to accentuate the thing every UP student yearns for. So, that’s it for now. I guess this ends my series of graduation posts. Take note of the phrase “I guess”. Just kidding. ‘Til then! Much love!

Mystique Shutterbug: Old and New Cats

Caramel gave birth to two kittens four months ago. My sister insisted on naming them after her favorite Philippine TV Series characters, Wako (orange) and Kokey (black). I know they do sound absurd, so my Mom and I suggested to change Kokey into Kay.

This is a funny picture of Wako and Kay planking.

I don't know why Kay's fond of  looking upwards whenever I snap a photo of her.

Wako and Kay are by far one of the sweetest kitty siblings we've ever had.

Here's Kay playing with the headset.

Here's a sad news about Wako. We found out that he has feline epilepsy. He's had more than five seizures since April 8, 2012. According to online sources, this sickness is never curative. We can only decrease the frequency, severity and duration of seizures with anti-convulsant drugs which.... we can't afford.

Wako doesn't let his condition get in the way of his "happiness", which is to play with everything that he finds amusing.

One big happy family. Left to Right: Kay, Wako, Caramel and Bench.

Mousy used to hate Wako and Kay, but that maltreatment changed after she had a miscarriage. She's now back to being the kind and lovable cat we know. See? She even breastfeeds Wako. Sweet, eh?

This is Mousy with her two babies. The bigger one is just actually her adopted kitty we named as Saucer. Maybe Mousy didn't realize she had a miscarriage, that's why she thought it was hers. The smaller one is her one and only survivor offspring. We named him Snap-snap. I hope he'll grow as healthy as her mother.

This is how Caramel shows how much she cares for Mousy. I almost got teary-eyed watching how loving these cats are. This is definitely a moment worth capturing.

....More photos soon...
