Diary: New start

diary
It has been a whirlwind of a week since I have returned to work but I am thankful for the past couple of days and everything is still in a very positive light for myself and my family. I’ve had some big news occur recently and they will be published in the below positive thoughts, it goes to show for myself that if you put your heart into something you are guranteed to get it and even if you don’t, you keep trying until you get somewhere that is good for yourself.

My creativity boost from before the holidays is still going and I have been multi-tasking between three of my original stories, I used to write more than ten and have notes for many more before I got into roleplay on IMVU, ten years ago. I’m glad it hasn’t left me completely and I don’t need a group of people to get a plot going. Below are the weekly five likes;

  • I got the job! Since before my Europe holiday I have been applying at other Accor properties in a different department. This morning I got woken up to join the new hotel opening in the city, it is a five star property. I won’t be starting until January next year but OMG I got the job!
  • I walked/jogged the Blackmore bridge run this past weekend in the city, I beat my record that I did at the 10km run in Canberra in April of this year πŸ˜€
  • Family lunch this past Monday, mum, sister and I all had days off after the big run and my sister suggested that we all go out for lunch, we went to Hog’s breath cafe at Towers. I had a chicken Caesar wrap with sweet potato wedges.
  • Hoping to catch up with my bestie Mei this upcoming Sunday, I haven’t seen her since before the holiday and I know we need to brainstorm our creative ideas and give presents to her.
  • Barbie finally released a new film! It is on American Netflix, I am just waiting for it to be released down under

Mood: On holiday


Good morning from Paris!

I didn’t make an official announcement of when I left Sydney two weeks ago but I am positive that everyone who follows my blog knew where I was going in the leading up days until I flew to Dubai. I have been over here on the other side of the globe for the past 2 weeks and been in Paris for 5 days. My parents and I have been non stop moving since we arrived and it has been amazing even with the random arguments my parents decide to start with each other. I have had my own room this past week and have been glad for it, I am returning to sharing a room with the parentals as of tonight after we take a train to London this afternoon. We are there for two weeks and next week I will be finally seeing my other half Brad, so can’t wait!

Might post again here while in London but mum has a busy schedule yet again for us, if not I will blog again when I am back home in Sydney. Thanks to those who are still following the Luci Logs and understaning my annual leave.

Mood: Restless


Freeform upfronts were on today and there was no Shadowhunters season 3 announcement, after all that talk on Instagram last week after Spoiler tv released an article saying that they had quietly renewed it. Why would they quietly renew it, if it had been renewed we would have gotten a live announcement on Facebook just like what they did last year when announcing Season 2 to the fandom.

I think they haven’t announced it yet because it is either pending or they want us to get hyped up for 2b being released in June, not long to go now so can’t wait to see it, though the two teasers they released yesterday was so-so, more Climon bullshit with the appearance of them sleeping together, as an avid Clace fan, Clary’s first time is suppose to be with Jace and that is what makes it even more special after everything that has been thrown at them as a couple.

But I’ve already vented about this on other Shadowhunter instagram pages and shared opinions with other Clace fans, we will wait and see what happens especially with the arrival of Sebastian, the real brother of Clary and another pursuer of her affections.

Mood: Empathic


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 πŸ˜› ❀

Mood: Quiet


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.

Diary: Return of the Parentals


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 πŸ˜€ 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.

Neko Irritation: Ridiculous Reboots


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.

GifSpam! Season 2

Two days ago the Mortal Instruments fandom heard the most amazing news, I was in bed reading my kindle when I saw the note pop up on the Shadowhunters facebook the cast were talking live.

And needless to say social media on all platforms and including myself who was ready to sleep, reacted high and proudly πŸ˜›

Season 2 is not released until next year obviously because they have to film it but this means new Behind the scenes, new casting videos including Jonathan Morgenstern (really looking forward to that announcement xD)

LL Note: Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!



** 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 convictsΒ 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 πŸ˜› 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 πŸ˜›

Diary: New FOM


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.

GifSpam! Goodbye Goblin King

Last week the world said goodbye to an amazing musician and inspiring artist, the man known as David Bowie. I still remember finally watching Labyrinth featuring him and JenniferΒ Connelly and immediately loving the fantasy plot and costumes.

This is my dedication to him, through gifs of the film.
