Le Parents at KFC SM Aura Branch Last July 2013

I don’t have a smartphone (yet), so I couldn’t take a picture of my mom. I used le picture above, taken a year ago when I still had my (old) smartphone. Hahaha.

Now, let’s go back to blogging business. Today is Mother’s Day! Yaaaay!

On le picture above, the one on the left is the OSSOMEST, FEARSOME, DISCIPLINED, HARDWORKING, AND THE BEST OF THE BEST MOMS IN THE WORLD, NIONITA JADMAN AURELIO.

I’m not afraid to admit that I’m a mama’s boy. I’m actually very proud of it. My dad is a seaman, and ever since I was young my mom was the one always around. Don’t get me wrong. I also love my dad. Le best dad in the world. I’ll blog about him too, on his birthday or at father’s day. LOL. But today my mom’s the star. <3 <3

My mom was 39 years old when I was born. I know what you’re thinking. Yes, I AM AN ONLY CHILD. (Not really a spoiled one though) I never bothered to asked why I was born too late. I don’t really care. Just as long as I know that they love me. LOL. My mom raised me as a God-fearing child so I grew up to be really kind and good. Haha. There were a little changes along the way, but yeah, I’m still a good kid.

She also disciplined me well. She’s also very strict. LOL. When I was a kid. Sleeping time is 8PM sharp. I didn’t like it because Disney movies in Disney Channel start at 7:30PM and end at 9:00PM. I couldn’t finish the movies and ended up waiting for another timr/day for Disney to have a replay of it (that is during the morning or afternoon). HAHAHAHA. Now that I’m about to graduate college, she still has this sleeping time thing going. 11PM. I couldn’t follow this thing this summer coz my body clock is all messed up.

When I had booboos as a kid, she was the one who washes it, treats it, and the one who comforts me that it’s gonna be alright. When I had toothaches, she would wake up with me, get her things ready, and pull the tooth that was aching. (She’s a Dentist you see. She’s not practicing anymore though) In UST AMV College of Accountancy, LIFE IS HARD. During my second year in college, we had to get a 2.0 grade in Accounting 1A&B and 2A&B. That would be 81 and above. i think. TRUST ME, YOU THINK THAT’S LOW, BUT IT’S REALLY HARD TO GET (for normal kids like me. lol) If you get a grade lower (2.25 to 3.0) than that, you’ll face the dreading Retention Examination. I didn’t want to take the retention examination so I studied hard. There was this 1 quiz that kept on bothering me. I was so frustrated and I cried. Le supermom came in and comforted me. You know, the usual stuff. Her caring nature never stopped there. The past academic year was the most emotionally playful year, Advacc + Tax? I thought I was a goner. I was very frustrated. And who was there (again)? Le supermom to the rescue. She’s also a Christian you see. Her very encouraging words + God’s Word really comforted me.

She was the one who always encourages me when I’m sad..The one who wants me to do the best that I can, to be the best that I can be, to be the light that stands and never falters, to be a respectful and God-fearing kid.

She was there with me through thick and thin. Through the ups and downs. Both parents are great providers. Whenever I had something that I wanted and/or needed. They provide it for me. (Again, I’m not spoiled. LOL. Sometimes, there are things that I want though. Haha)

She’s my Natural and Biological Mom. She’s my Spiritual Mom.

I don’t know about you guys but everything that I ever wanted and most probably needed is already in her.

NO ONE CAN REPLACE HER BECAUSE SHE’S THE BEST AMONG THE BEST.

Though sometimes we fight, know that your very handsome only son loves you. LOVE YOU MA! HART HART. HAHA. <3 <3

She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:

Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; BUT A WOMAN WHO FEARS THE LORD IS TO BE PRAISED.

Proverbs 31: 26-30

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there! ~ =w=

This is my Abyss Walker, LeonShadow

So yeah, I’ve been leveling my Abyss Walker. Currently @ 65. Yey, just 5 more levels to go. 1 level per day is my quota. Not in a rush anyway. Then, I do PVP afterwards. Abyss Walker, i guess, is more inclined to its PVP side rather on its PVE side.

My PVP weakness: Sorceress and Clerics

1. Sorceress. I haven’t fought any Saleanas yet, but I had my battles with Elestras, Smashers, and Majesties

  • Elestras -> Ice stacking and the most OP EX ever granted,  Freezing Sword. I know that I’m still a newbie, maybe I just don’t know how to battle Elestras just yet. But still, Freezing Sword is so OP. LOL.
  • Smashers and Majesties -> I categorize them into one because the main problem I’m having with these classes is Teleport. There are a lot of ways to use this skill. You can get from point A to point anywhere. Hahaha. Having a hard time pinpointing. For Smashers, Time Stop + Laser Cutter is OP. As for Majesties, the crowd control is just awesome. All its EX skills are utilized, starting from Gravity Ball, Triple Orbs, and Black Hole (haven’t fought any 70 people yet, but with Gravity Ascension EXcombo madness will be a lot easier and more OP. LOL)

2. Clerics. Haven’t fought any Saints yet. As a general weakness, I’m having a hard time with their “hard” nature and their electrocution. Well, Paladins don’t electrocute that much but their SA breaks hurts. LOL. Scared of Inquisitors’ Consecration because that’s where their burst DPS starts.

 

Gonna have to practice more and learn how to handle these classes.~

Abyss Walker

Another Blessed Year \m/

1497576_711990125479940_280269741_n

BIRTHDAYS

Nung bata ako, I was always looking forward sa birthday ko. 7th birthday ko ang pinaka-bongga sa lahat. Pili lang ang invited nun eh. Mga childhood friends ko, siyempre pati pamilya nila. Mga ka-churchmates namin, siyempre included ang aking mga ninangs. Ang mga Christian friends ni mama. Relatives din namin kasama. Pati schoolmates and teachers ko sa Maria Montessori School kasama. Pero alam niyo kung ano ang nangyari? Invited buong area namin. Yung mga batang hindi ko naman kilala andun. Sobrang laptrip. Hahaha. What made it special? Siyempre, ang sandamakmak na TOYS. Seryosong sandamakmak. Isang buong queen sized bed, puno.

After that, normal birthdays na lang. Kaen kaen na lang. Ganun. Hahaha.

This year, ayun normal lang din. Kumaen lang kami ng Greenwich ni mama kanina sa Market! Market!

Kanina napagbulay bulay ko. Naks, ang lalim! Pero ang weird ko diba? May mga pagbulay-bulay pa ko. Pero ngayong 4th year ko lang nagawa yung mga pagbulay-bulay na ganito. Siguro ngayong taon ko lang sobrang na-appreciate ang mga bagay bagay.

As I was saying, kanina na-realize ko na birthdays are not about the day itself but about the entire year na lumipas. Sobrang saya ko lang kanina. Inisip ko na grabe pala si Lord this year. Sobrang daming encounters with Him. Sobrang daming blessings. Siyempre may mga downs din, pero honestly sobrang na-outweigh ng ups ko ang mga downs ko.

1. Victory Weekend. Grabe tong experience na ‘to. I think dito nag-start ang lahat? Haha. Ang leader ko na si Kiane Ricasa? Hindi kami friends niyan, as in. Inaaway ko pa sya nun (Sa utak ko lang naman. Hahaha) Sobrang sama ko pala. Haha. Pero God made a way. Siya talaga ang great restorer of relationships. In-engage niya ko, siyempre pumayag ako, nakita ko kasi yung change sa buhay niya. Alam niyo yun, yung parang may bago siyang aura. Haha. Ayun. After nun, Victory Weekend itself na. Sobrang tindi ng encounter ko with God. Even before that day, grabe na si Lord. Nagkaroon din ako ng bagong kapatid, naks. Si Kuya Ben Dela Cruz

2. Victory Group. Since leader ko nga si Kiane, part na ko ng VG niya. There,I met the people that I really considered as my brothers. Siyempre, at first, sobrang awkward, dahil yung iba blockmates ko pero di ko close, yung iba hindi, tas magkakakilala na sila tas sobrang bago talaga sa group nila. Pero in time, naging close ko rin sila. I don’t know how pero dun ko natutunan talaga ang sense of brotherhood. I could open up to them, about my problems at practically everything na pwedeng i-share e na-share ko na sa kanila. Haha. Mejo cheesy ‘to pero mahal ko ang mga to. Von, PX, Kuya Ben, Erwin, Mon, Alan, Kiane, Gavin,

3. Discipleship Group. Hala, grabe talaga si Lord. Another set of brother na naman. Hahaha. Pero kung ano ang nangyari sa VGmates ko, ganun din. Malaking sense of brotherhood. Hahaha. Mahal ko din ‘tong mga to. Kuya Kaypee, Kuya LJ, Gil, Paul

4. Lifegroup. 3 of 3. Haha. Ang dami ko ng kapatid. Haha. Ito ang bagong group of brothers ko sa New Life. Nakakainis kasi yung sched namin eh. May CompLab every Saturday kaya di rin ako maka-attend ng LifeGroup. Right now, di ko pa sila ganun ka-kilala pero I know in time, I will. Sobrang laking blessing na naging leader ko si Kuya James, at naging part ako ng lifegroup niya. Kuya James, Oliver, Dominic, Jecho, Kuya Sam, David, Kevin. Sorry di ko pa kilala yung iba. Hahaha. Promise, makikilala ko rin kayong lahat. Haha.

5. God’s People. Siyempre aside sa mga brothers in Christ ko e nakakilala rin ako ng ibang mga kapatid. Alyssa, Bibi, Anj, Angela, Karla, Kuya Ray, Ate Lorraine, Kuya Apego, other LifeBox peeps, Anessa, Tina, Faith, Bea, Pam, Ruth, Jhong, Israel, Carlos, Dani, April, Che, the other Youth Jammers. Grabe sobrang dami ko na palang mga kapatid. As Christians, we must be surrounded by God’s people. They’re there to push you up when you’re down, and to be together with you in your walk with God. Divine connections ika nga. :D

6. School. Most emotional academic year ang academic year na itu. Yung akala mo mahirap yung first sem, pero yun pala mas mahirap pa yung 2nd sem. Sobrang faithful talaga ni Lord sa grades ko. Akala ko talaga debarred na ko, pero hindi yun yung nangyari eh. Yung Advacc, the most mapaglarong subject SO FAR, sabit sa tres. I know na will ni God na nag-transmute sila. Without that, bagsak talaga ako. God works in ways talaga that will surprise us.

7. Blockmates/Friends/Thesismates. This academic year, bonded and close na kami ng mga blockmates ko (4A4) Dahil siguro sa General Assembly. Sa mga 2A1-loves ko, ayun sobrang strong parin kami. Yung iba graduate na, sobrang nakaka-proud lang. My thesismates, ayun nakaraos. Tropang X, ayun close parin. Nag-outing na nga kami eh. LAHAT TONG MGA TO? MAHAL NA MAHAL NA MAHAL KO.

8. Family. Ngayon ko sobra sobrang na-appreciate ang parents ko. They work so hard para lang mapag-aral nila ako. Ramdam an ramdam na ramdam na ramdam ko ang pagmamahal niyo sakin. LOVE NA LOVE NA LOVE NA LOVE NA LOVE NA LOVE NA LOVE KO KAYO. Though minsan, di ako ganun ka-expressive. Know na mahal na mahal ko kayo ni papa. Pati rin pala ang mga pinsan ko na kapatid na ang turing ko, Anje and Ate Mj, love you both! Kitakits maybe after graduation or board exam? Loveyou!

9. Dancing. I love dancing, though I may not be good at it. From Paci, to JPIA, and sa latest na sayaw sa church. Sobrang daming opportunities to learn and dance.

Ito lang ang iilan sa mga blessings ko sa isang buong taong nakalipas na taon. Bonggang celebration? Gadgets? Material gifts? Di na kelangan. Just counting the blessings you received the entire year is enough, I guess.

God has been so faithful to me this past year, sobrang daming blessings and encounter with Him and with other people. Ngayon pa lang sobrang dami na ng naibigay niya, alam ko na may ini-i-store pa si God para sakin. I-surprise mo ko, Lord ha? Haha.

Thank you, Lord. Above everything else, I LOVE YOU! You are my father, my daddy, my friend, my protector, my provider. Above else, I will put you first. #JesusFirst

 

 

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

- Jeremiah 29:11

 

ANOTHER BLESSED YEAR HAS PASSED AND I’M READY FOR THE NEXT ONE. SURPRISE MO KO LORD HA? :D

 

 
 

Blessed to be with blessed people!~ = w =

Last April 27, 2014 was Youth Sunday. Siyempre, as the name implies, youth ang in-charge sa mga bagay bagay. From ushering, to communion, and everything. Ang theme is Preppy Summer (Tama ba spelling? Hahaha. Bayaan niyo na). And since youth sunday nga, the youth prepared a dance performance. Siyempre kasama ako. Naks. Thank you Lord for the privilege of dancing for You.

A few weeks back, sumali ako sa dance workshop ng youth. Ang nag-invite sakin is si kuya James Ryan Fernandez Duque, my lifegroup leader (Oha, buong buo ang name mo kuya James. Haha). Open for all youth yung workshop. Last year kasi ininvite na ko ni kuya James na sumayaw. Unexpectedly, nagkaroon ng dance competition sa JPIA kaya di na ko nakaka-attend ng practice. Kaya ayun, di ako nakasali sa sayaw ng youth. Honestly, malaki yung regret ko nun dahil di ako nakasayaw for The One who gave me this talent (Though, di ako kagalingan). Sabi ko, “Lord, promise, next time sasayaw na talaga ako for You.”

Partly kaya ako sumali sa workshop is to meet and know the youth. Ang Youth Jam (service for the youth) kasi during Saturdays lang. Eh may Computer Laboratory class kami every Saturday afternoon. Kahit anong gawin ko di ako makakahabol sa Youth Jam. So, I never had the chance to meet and make friends with the youth, kahit sa lifegroup namin. Haha.

Back to the workshop. Siyempre, nung dance workshop, I wasn’t really expecting na sasayaw na agad kami. Of course, kilala ko na si Coach Miah that time dahil siya rin yung coach last year. Ang problema, NI ISA SA YOUTH, WALA AKONG KILALA. Ang malala pa nun, wala si kuya James, kaya wala akong makausap masyado, except kay Kevin, na ka-lifegroup ko, na bago rin sa workshop. Haha. At the end of the first workshop, Coach Miah made the newcomers introduce themselves. Name, Year, and School. Mejo marami rin kaming bago. Nung nagpakilala na ko, I felt old. 5th year na ko. Hahaha. That night, may mga nakilala na ko. Mga 5 ata sila.

Tapos ayun, workshop na every Tuesday and Thursday. Okay ang youth, they are very warm and welcoming. Siyempre I had a hard time adjusting. Ibang culture na ‘to eh. Pero ayos naman, ka-vibes ko naman sila. Hahaha.

A week before Youth Sunday, tinawagan ako ni kuya James na sasayaw daw kami sa Sunday. Siyempre, di ako makapaniwala, kakagising ko lang nun eh. Hahaha. Sabi ko, “Lord, eto na ‘yun! Iba ka talaga”. Everyday na kami nag-mi-meet to practice. Finally, nung last day (Saturday, April 26) NAKILALA KO NA LAHAT NUNG SASAYAW ON SUNDAY. Oo, mejo nakakahiya na sobrang tagal kong nalaman mga names nila, pero mas nakakahiya kung sinabi na nila names nila, tas nakalimutan to, tas tatanungin ko ulit, kaya ayun I had to observe them and remember what they call each other. Hahaha.

The people above, sila ang mga nakasayaw ko. They call themselves “The Core”. Sobrang nakaka-bless lang to be with these people. Practicing, laughing at corny jokes and puns, eating, lahat lahat! Sobrang thankful lang ako kay Lord na I had the chance to be with these people, using the talent that He gave to us, for His greater glory.

I danced in 5 out of 6 services. Sobrang nakakapagod pero sobrang worth it, knowing that you danced for Him together with the people you love.

 

ISRAEL, JHONG, CARLOS, ANESSA, TINA, FAITH, BEA, PAM, RUTH, APRIL, DANI, CHE, KUYA JAMES

Lord, thank you for the lives of these people. I know that it wasn’t an accident that I got to meet them, laugh with them, eat with them, and dance with them. I know that meeting them is part of Your plan in my life. Bless them more and more.

Indeed, I AM BLESSED TO BE WITH BLESSED PEOPLE!~

#DumDum #BreathInBreathOut

 

P.S. Thank you ate Sendy sa pizza. :D

P.S. #2. Di lang yung mga sumayaw kung kilala ko ha. Kilala ko na rin yung ibang youth. Haha. In time, makikilala ko na rin lahat. :D

Geraint

Image

 

This is Geraint, one of the Six Legendary Heroes and is also the Gold Dragon

Geraint’s death is probably one of the most dramatic cutscene ever. He fought against Serpentra and died protecting me (Well, except for the Assassin and Academic class. I haven’t tried the Kali class yet though. They don’t get have the cutscene of Geraint’s death). Of course, Argenta was all mad and dramatic as usual. Lol. All sorts of mayhem happen because of his death (The seals on the “evil” stones were getting weaker. Don’t know the name of the stones. Not really paying much attention. Hahaha.)

Geraint was first seen at Abandoned Welton Hollow chasing after Velskud. And was last seen at Captain Darlant’s Base.

People felt betrayed, especially tne remaining of the Six Legendary Heroes, when they knew that he was the golden dragon. He lead the Black Dragon Raid to victory, and left the other and running away with Argenta. (Not in the love story kind of way. LOL) His right eye got injured when Velskud took the Black Dragon Jewel.

He was resurrected or something but way younger and is with Argenta in the woods. I thought that the younger version was his son though, only to find out that it was Geraint himself. This was all I remembered after reaching the 60 cap. I don’t know anything about the main quest thereafter. Hahaha. And since I’m using my Abyss Walker in reaching 70, the main story might be a little different (I guess? I hope not)

Time Warps

Uhm, so yeah, I’m currently grinding my Bringer. Currently @ level 44.

art2VK346LDxV5

*le random picture of an assassin*

I don’t know about you guys but i follow/read the main quest and follow the character’s story. The story of the Assassin class is quite interesting because it involved time warps and such. At first, I was amazed, but now it’s a big pain in the butt. Lawl. Stupid Lunaria keeps on time warping. My character is confused. Illusion keeps on telling me that Lunaria’s messing with me. Lunaria just follows me around and time warps like crazy. My mind couldn’t keep up at all (especially, right now, it was like she warped 3 times, Warrior Xian said that Charti is dead, Cidel says another story, and Karacule says another story. Lawl.

Of course, I know that Charti dies, and Cidel become the successor of Karacule, with all the drama of Karacule passing away. Hahaha. But the time warps are just = w =, that it’s messing up some parts. HAHAHA. But it’s still cool though.

Bringer

Image

 

This is my newly made Bringer, LeonShadow.

My Majesty, GenesisAsh is still level 50. I was planning to reach 70 last week but i couldn’t just do it. LOL. It’s because Dragon Nest released the new specialization of the Assassin Class, Bringer. I made a Chaser a while ago, and I had a hard time using in PVP. I don’t know if I’m just accustomed in using my GearMaster or if I really suck at using Chaser. Hahaha. Anyway, I left my Chaser, and decided to make a Bringer.

Not that I’m good at using Bringer, but somehow I prefer using it than Chaser. My Bringer, LeonShadow, is currently level 37. Changing jobs (again) is just around the corner, and I’m planning to become an Abyss Walker (for PVP purposes, same with GenesisAsh).

Once I reach 70, I think I’m gonna make a Light Fury (for PVE purposes, and maybe PVP? Lol). That Energy Ball thing just awesome. \m/
