More pictures and more about my experiences XD~Collapse )

KAT-TUN Live Tour 2012 CHAIN

Tokyo Dome (April 22, 2012)
I have seen KAT-TUN before but I was my first time to attend their concert... It was awesome!Collapse )

Super Delicate

Just updating my lifeless page.. Today, I was finally able to buy JUMP's new single, super delicate hihi..

君にしか見せられない顔がある~   

Welcome 2012!

It been a while since I've updated my lifeless LJ >,<.
I have always attempted to update it but I never find time for it @.@

Anyways~ 2011 was really a great year for me. Time is really fast ne.. its almost 4 months since I've arrived here in Japan
I have a lot of things to thank for and a lot of people to thank for m(_ _)m

I'm am never really a smart or talented person. Ever since high school I'm just your normal average student who fails in her Chinese subjects,  obsessed with the "Cool Japan" and of course, our dear boys (*ahem JE). 

Because of my love for Japan, I took the course International Studies major in Japanese Studies with the thinking that I'll be studying culture and language (kind of stuffs) but I was shocked to learn that its not like what I'm thinking about.. XD.. (oh gosh.. its about international politics, globalization, @#%(@^2z290(!!! kind of stuffs) but since I'm majoring in Japanese studies, it was very challenging for me and somehow, I was able to survive until this day. 

Aside from this, because I am aware of the one year exchange program of our university to Japan, it inspired me to to my best (because you need good grades to be chosen and it was very hard because they only chose 1 student per university). I really love Japan ever since I'm in kindergarten ~.. influenced by my dad who loves Voltes V... I learned the fantastic world of anime and watched a lot ever since then.

In deciding which university I should apply...Knowing that my love, Tegoshi is studying in Waseda University (also Nakamaru), Waseda has always been my goal to apply to ever since my 1st year in college. With my friends aiming to be chosen for these exchange programs, we studied very hard (and of course fangirling at the same time.)


One of those friends became my best partner/combination/ or whatever you call it. XD.. Without her help, I know I won't be able to go this far. During bad times and good times, we both work together and made it this far.

Then finally~ in 2011~ the application for Waseda opened!..
The interview was really hard (for me) and I thought I would be rejected for it T____T but oh god.. It's a miracle.. because I got chosen 

I really cried that I got chosen. >.<~ it was really an achievement for me. A girl who doesn't have intelligence and talent has finally achieved something. This was a proof that if you want to achieve something, you can achieve it if you'll give your full heart for it.

Another problem for me was getting my scholarship for this to be able to study in Japan. Because we all know that the expenses in Japan is really high and we can't afford to pay for it all. I got my scholarship results on July 15, 2011 via mail and then finally! YES! I got it! I'm 100% sure that I'll be going to Japan this September for the Fall Semester T____T. I know, I'll miss my family and friends but this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to study in Japan and its Wasedaaaaa~!! one of the prestigious university in Japan.

Then finally!~ the most awaited day has finally arrived!!!.. September 8, 2011. The day that I've been dreaming for since I was a child. First time riding a plane, first time going overseas, first time traveling alone. I was really like an innocent child during that time because I was a little but clueless and scared but my excitement really overflows!


Three hours of anticipation and I finally see land!!.. Its JAPAN!!.. the second I saw this picture, I really want the plane to land asap! XD~ haha.. Since the time difference of Philippines and Japan is an hour, its like 4 hours travel time XD~

Ever since I've arrive in Japan, everyday was a new experience for me!. I was able to go to different places like Tokyo tower, Meiji Jingu, Tsukishima, Harajuku, Johnnys Shop, Johnnys Family Club and many more. The transportation in Japan is very convenient and going to different places was not hard even if you don't have any car XD


My violet sneakers! haha.. the sport where NEWS' went for their taping in their bangumi, Soukon

  
Johhny's big billboard in Shibuya

I would always get excited whenever I see ad's of Johnny's and can't help but take pictures of it XD haha.. gajin da ne~ XD 

and of course!! aside from my blazing fangirl spirit!!!... I became a student of Waseda University!

        


Sasuga Waseda!~.. The campus and classrooms are very beautiful and I love their facilities. Aside from that the professors are really great. Being able to participate in these kind of program is really a blessing for me. Our opening ceremony was on September 24, 2011 

and surprisingly..... tadaaa~ the next day I attended Hey! Say! JUMP's SUMMARY 2011 at Tokyo Dome (September 25, 2011) OH GOD MY SOUL FLEW AWAY FROM MY BODY THAT DAY. I just arrived from Japan and because of J-ticket international. I got tickets for this concert and was able to see them less that a month since I've arrive here in Japan


I wrote my experience about it here

I was very lucky because my seat was very close! >.<!.. JE-san thank you for being kind to international fans
I was able to see all the JUMP members upclose (but no Ryutaro :'[), also Kis-My-Ft2, Nakajima Kento, Nakayama Yuma, Morimoto Shintarou, AN JELL band! and Johnny's Jr's and during that day, Nakai Masahiro was also a guest.

They were all good looking and of course especially my ichiban in JUMP >.<~ the ichigo prince
*The next day was our first day of class and since I was still in my dreamland mode I was late (just a little min) and entered the wrong classroom
Luckily, it was only class orientations for the first day XD~

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Moving away from my fangirl spirit~

Here in Japan, I was able make a lot of friends (exchange students & Japanese students) all of them were nice people. 

It my first time living alone in a dorm and the life style is very different, I still need adjustment cause I have to do everything by myself now (no maid!).*note: we are not rich! In the Philippines it is common to have maid for average people because it is not expensive

Yappari experiencing the culture first hand is really a great experience. Like what we see in drama's and stuffs.. it was really interesting! Aside from this is experiencing Japan's four seasons. In the Philippines, the whole year is summer we only have wet and dry season XD~..  I really like winter fashion that's why I'm enjoying the season right now because I love the clothes! ^.^/

Fast forwrding my days here in Japan.. tadaaaa (part 2)!

I was able to attend Tegomass' Concert!!!! Tegomass no Mahou in Yokohama Areana!!!! (December 16, 2011)

  

Unexpectedly!!!!!.. My Japanese friend's friend who is an JFC member was able to won tickets for Tegomass concert but at the same time because she won K8 tix for Tokyo Dome, she is sold her tickets to me!.. at it was an Arena Seat!!!.. >.<~!! I applied in JFC too late already that's why I'm very lucky that someone sold this to me! (at the regular price with no additional fee~ a kind fangirl indeed)

My seat was really nice and my seat was the side where Tegoshi appeared!!! GAHHHH!!!!! and of course Massu also came to our side and he was really cute!!!!! ><!! seeing them personally and hearing them sing live was really another dream come true!!! T_____T.. Tegomass and NEWS is really my ichiban group!!! but then because of they were not so active over the past year I was able to have the chance to fan girl about them T____T... 

oh!! that day! Shige and Nakamaru was also there!!!!.. Shige promoted his pink and grey book and he was really handsome >.<!!.. Nakamaru didn't show up in the camera but Massu mentioned that he was there 

Being able to attend JUMP and Tegomass' concert I was able to see my three hubbies!! >.< (Tegoshi, Massu and Yamada).  God.. I don't know what I did to deserve this but I'm very thankful for everything T____T

Another item in my wish list if to see snow!!! and OMEGAD!~. I was able to see snow before the year ends!!!.. On December 31, 2011 , my aunt and uncle treated me to go on a one day ski trip in Niigata ken!.. It was a long way from Tokyo but when I finally saw snow outside the car, my heart went super fast because it really beautiful!!.

  

My first time seeing snow and skiing! (I still suck at skii though but I want to practice more if I have the chance)

And after the ski trip!~ we made back in time to be able to watch Kouhaku and Johnny's countdown concet 2011-2012!!!.. I didn't balloted for this ticket because it was expensive for me (considering the length of the concert and price) and I still paid a lot for balloting for JUMP's New Year Concert (which I didn't win any X( )  

*Sigh! but because for this year!!!.. it was decided that they are going to have an Asia tour!! I will do my best (and hope for the best) that I'll win tickets for their concert in Yokohama!! >.<!! revenge-suru tsumori desu yo! >.<!!

I still wanted to write a lot about what happened to me but I'm already making this entry long so I just highlighted some significant happenings in my life. 

I'm really thankful for the people who made this possible.. Especially to my parents who supported me with my dreams and even with my fangirl desires T____T..  

I'm finally turning 20 this year (but its still far away~), for now, I would like to say that my 19 years of existence have been really a wonderful experience!.. This 2012, I will keep continuing to do my best both academics and fan girl to make my renaming months in Japan a wonderful experience..

One thing I regretted of not doing is attending Sexy Zone's handshake event even though I have 2 invitations T____T.. Nakaken is my bias btw.. but because I look stressed and not ready (because I was tired of school work and baito). Not going to the event.. I just think that I needed that rest.. but oh well!! more opportunities to come!..

That's why starting this year! I would do my best with my studies and my fangirl dreams!! :D..  

Unexpected Ending!!!

Omgeee!!! Hands down to KimuTaku sama!!!... 

I just finished his drama, Tsuki no Koibito.. he's truly a great actor.
I won't tell the story because I don't want to spoil people who might read this entry *blink blink..
All I can say it.. It was really an unexpected ending!!

thanks to TLS for subbing this great drama!  

I really love the drama plus its ending song and insert songs (now downloading its ost)

I'll just post some screencaps of kimutaku from the drama.. キムタク様は本当にすごいね~♥♥♥

Happy Birthday Kei-chan

Happy Birthday to Koyama ^___^. He's finally 27 this year.

I really miss him and Nakamaru in Shokura especially the Gekkan KoyaMaru part. I also him and NEWS because there wasn't any activity since their LIVEx3 last year >.<.. I hope they'll release a new single or even have their own TV show like Soukon.

Anyway!  since this is the time of celebrating... I'll sing my favorite line in NEWS' Happy Birthday

Umareta koto
For being born
deaeta koto
For being able to meet you
Ima soba ni ireru koto mo (arigatou)
That I can be by your side now (Thank you)

A magical, special day that happens only once a year

Yaaay!!! Happy Birthday Koyama!!!! 
 
 
A very cute Koyama who plays with an old toy car
*since I really miss Soukon, I chose this picture XD




Yes! I'm done watching it

 Yes! It's been a depressing day for me, but finishing Koishite Akuma made me feel better. XD
*thank you to the group, TLS for subbing this XD

I'm really thankful to our dear Johnny's because they can make us feel better even when reality is so depressing.. It's not that I want to escape reality but it boost me to do my best ^_____^

~Nakayama Yuma was really great.. I love his acting..
~Nakajima Kento's role really suits him. He's so energetic and heart warming person which made him cute
~I can feel that Matchy-san is really a great senpai for them. His aura makes me feel like "huwaaa sugoi na hito"
~I was surprised to see Yokoyama You... it made me remembered Hidarme Tantei EYE... he's really good in acting as an antagonist

*Kato Rosa was super beautiful XD <3
 
 
Here's a screenshot for Nakaken XD.. hehe.. I'm looking forward to watch "Umareru" which just started airing this month. Nakaken plays as Hayashida Koji (the third child). I'm excited to watch it soon ^______^
