Normally this post between gifs and fashion tiles is a continuating of Ame Hayato’s Chronicles or a diary that includes my weekly 5 likes but tonight I would simply like to express my concern and sympathy for my friends in the United States. My family from the Philippines living there, my Transgender bestie, my Afro-American roleplaying girl friend and my fellow SL fashion blogging Latina. I and the rest of the world are just as scared and behind you, it will be better!
Like your current President said in one of his final speeches “The sun will rise tomorrow” and it will continue to do so for the next four years, even with a Republican president, Senate and Congress you are a sturdy people and will persevere. If it feels like it is going down the drain I have a spare room at my house here down under that you are welcome to live in 😛 ❤
A lot has happened around the world this week in both tragedy and surprise on a personal level, it has also been my four days off and I am back to work tomorrow. I got to watch both Warcraft and Finding Dory on my days off, both excellent and entertaining to watch in their own levels. Warcraft was reaching to the WoW gamer in me and seeing Azeroth come to life while Dory was seeing a movie get a sequel done right after 13 years.
Did a couple of shopping as well which is kinda normal for me every week but I need to ease up to build my resources again especially if I’m aiming for Europe next year. Sadness is surrounding Orlando as the world knows but hope and love will stay love within the LGBT community, I know that we will continue and hopefully the Americans can curb their gun control. As a fangirl with a hopeless celebrity crush I am mourning that Tom Hiddleston is making out with Taylor Swift and torn inside.
Other than thinking he is the real life Disney Prince and Bees knees and thinking she makes great music and a sweetheart to the fans, but he is taken and no longer available, I know he’s way above my level and couldn’t ever think of meeting him in the future but still- its my dream hubby no more.
At 5 to 9 this morning, our quiet household got woken up by our security alarm going off. It scared the shit out of me and woke up my sister and her best friend (who was sleeping over) out of their rooms. Turned out, our beloved parents had triggered the alarm when they came into the house and forgot it was still on. I also got cuddles at 9:30am when mum came upstairs and jumped into my bed 😀 So happy to report that the parents of the Moscoso home are back!
We all went out for dinner tonight to our usual RSL and had dinner together catching up on what they did in the Philippines as well as what was going on in our end. I’m just so glad they are home, it has been difficult to sleep this past week ever since that incident in the early morning of a loud bang hitting my garage. Paranoia had set into me and took me a while to doze off, good thing I was doing PM shifts this past week.
Not Second Life related but its got to do with something that I enjoy watching and heavily invested in when it comes to buying their movies whenever they are released. I am talking about the new trailer and the changing of the dolls appearance of Monster High. I bought Barbie: Spy Squad yesterday and watched it last night, as always there are trailers for future dvd releases and Monster High was one of them.
It featured a very different looking Draculaura and very different looking Monster High? Draculaura is known for being pink and cutesy but also dark and edgy because it is a school for monsters. The whole appeal of this collection released by Mattel years ago was because they were different to the Barbies, Bratz, My Scene and Ever After High dolls. The movies itself was all about embracing originality and to love who you are as a person.
So with this new reboot? They have removed Draculaura’s fangs, Frankie’s stitches are less prominent and apparently what I heard in the fandom that they have removed Spectra completely?! All for the sake of aiming at a younger audience and that the dolls and CGI that we have all come to know and love is seen as “too scary”? I’m sorry what? It is not just me who is outraged at this. My bestie Katie was venting last night and so was a lot of girls in the MH forums, I hope Mattel wakes up and sees this is a bad change.
** Celebrate the green and gold of our country! **
Though I am working for our public day, I know the rest of the country will celebrating in the best way we know we can! Out in the sun, with family or friends, watching the races on the water in Sydney city, chilling by the beach, getting drunk. But if you are asking what is the whole big deal about our holiday on this particular day. Well to put it simply, it is when the First fleet arrived in Port Jackson in 1788 arriving from our mother land England.
The ships took months to come here across the unforgiving oceans carrying our Commonwealth’s convicts so you could say our big dry continent became the new prison for all the inmates who were arriving. Thus Australia is the foundations of a colony and prospered from there. Now it is about partying and granting citizenship to those who passed the tests 😛 Soo from one Aussie to the rest of you who has the day off (lucky bastards).
Happy Australia Day! ❤
Ohh and this message from Deadpool had me cracking up, love his Aussie accent 😛
Or as what everyone else knows them as the Front office manager. Our new one started two days ago in the morning shift and stayed back until 8-9pm learning everything she can from every single department and my duty manager Honey. Needless to say with years of knowledge and over 10 hotels of working under her belt, us girls on the Front desk have very optimistic thoughts in her being our new boss.
In just meeting and working with her for the past two days she has already has brought a lot to the plate and noticed things around our property that others had not. With her experience I am hoping she can boost the morale and motivation of our front office team because we all seem to be strung out quite thinly since December last year.
The beauty of having not having to work until the PM shift the following night and you finish an AM shift at 3pm means you have a 24hr break before you return to work. It also meant for me on Saturday night that I got to travel to the city and meet up with Mei for a night of lots of laughs, random conversation and future plans.
I found out from Ms Mei that she did a deposit on a two bedroom apartment near the airport and if I was to ever move back to working for city hotels, she has a spare bedroom for me in her new place. To imagine that! Living in an apartment with my 14.5 years best friend would be amazing, we have travelled together and I have emotionally broke down in front of 3 times so she can easily handle my tantrums as the most awesome “Nee-chan” that she is.
It also had me thinking about my future, do I want to stay local at my current job or move back to the city? We also discussed our holiday plans, she is flying back to South Korea with her mum and missing out on my birthday this year! D: But I also have my new holiday in August with the parents to save up for. This time we are going to Hawaii! Mei also spoke to me about a second trip to South Korea in September for their Thanksgiving, I wanna go back! I hope I have annual leave, I’ll happily go and see her family again ❤
