Hi! Sorry for not updating this for almost six years. I've been busy and "adulting" happened. I can't promise to post anything regularly but here's a run down of what happened in between.

1.) I'm still a fangirl. I guess once a fangirl, you will always be a fangirl. From jpop, kpop, punk/alternative bands and sports, there's always someone I'm rooting for.

2.) My family still likes to travel. We went to China (2012) and Korea (2014). I also got to see the beautiful island of Palawan and the historical Ilocos region.

3.) I went to different concerts. I saw BIGBANG twice (ALIVE and MADE). I also watched CNBLUE's first concert in my country. I watched a lot of my favorite bands (The 1975, 5SOS, P!ATD, Yellowcard, WithCon, Dashboard Confessional, One Direction) live too. But the question is, when will I see Arashi? huhuhu.

4.) I had my first work in 2011 but I resigned two years later and worked in our family business instead. But right now, I'm a *partial* bum because my Mom got sick and I'm taking care of her.

5.) I now have a niece! I am so in love with her. She's so cute and cuddly.

 Hiya! I'm back!! I'm still having a hard time posting regularly but I'll try. Maybe once a month will do?! :) Well, enough of the excuses, you know the drill, here's my Top 5 raves and rants.

5. Vietnam! Went to Vietnam last March. There's nothing much scenic places nor tourist things to do there but you can see how vast their progress was after the war. But what will make come back to Vietnam is shopping! Everything is cheap there. I also spotted Arashi  DVD (Sho's Quiz Show and Aiba's My Girl) there. Even when travelling my fangirling never escapes. :D HIT

4. Arashi's new DVD and album. If you're an Arashian you've probably know this already. :) This will make our pockets empty but the happiness Arashi brings is priceless. HIT 

3. Part time work. Since I'm a bum and have no source of income, I have to do something so that I can satisfy my fangirling needs (See No. 4). With this my Mom told me to do part time work in her company so that I can earn money. Yeah, my Mom is supportive of my Arashi addiction as long as I will do something in return. Nothing is for free right? And I will do everything for Arashi!! HIT

2. NBA Playoffs. Basketball is always my first love. My mornings are dedicated to watching NBA playoffs. Right now I'm cheering for Chicago Bulls! I hope they'll make it all the way to the championship. And I think I like Derick Rose. Wink, wink. HIT

1. Bum. I've been out of college for a year already and I still don't know what to do with my life. I tried to look for a job but I can't seem to find a work that will suit my interest and educational background. Every time my mom ask me "What do I want to do?" I really don't know what to answer. Am I being choosy with what job I should take or I still don't know what my calling is? Right now, everything is a blur. There are times when I cry at night because I know that in my age, I must be financially independent but with what I am doing I'm being a pain in the ass.  But for what it's worth, I thank my Mom for her patience and understanding. I love you Mom. :) MISS

 Finally got to squeeze some time to update this so now I'm presenting you the new and improved Top Five. 

5. Studying Nihongo!! Woot woot! I decided to study mostly due to fangirling reasons but also because of my career plans. HIT

4. Moving to a new house. Well kind of. Since the school is far from where I live, I will be staying in a nearer place with my sister. I'm slightly halfhearted with this for I will be surely missing my family and I'm not really used to do household chores but I also can't stand waking up very early. HIT/MISS

3. Eighter. I'm slowly becoming a Kanjani fan! But honestly I haven't heard any of their songs, I just first watched them in HnA in their Mannequin 5 guesting. They are such a dorks! I love K8 and Arashi together! HIT

2. Baker King. I'm addicted to this drama. Nice story line and great acting. My Mom and I slept at 3 AM just to finish all Baker King episodes! Oh and Iove Joo Won!! HIT

1. Ganbatte Nihon! There's still earthquakes happening here and there and radiation continues to be a threat. But keep holding on Japan. I know you can do it. You will always be in my thoughts and prayers. MISS

snowwhite007: (Default)
With all these calamities happening, I strongly believe that there is only one way for Japan but to go up. They have been through a lot before and I know they will surge back at top. In no no time, the sun will surely shine again for the land of the rising sun. I may not be able to provide any financial assistance but for what it's worth you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless Japan.

In a lighter news, it's been a year and a month since my last post. A lot of things happened, I graduated college, worked as an assistant for 2 two months, been a full time fan girl for about 6 months and now I'm back to being a student again studying Nihongo. I will try to post more often and make this LJ stronger, better, faster like Japan..

This week is kind of eventful for me but I am out of words to detail it all out. I'm not really in the mood to speak my thoughts so sorry for my oh-so-boring post. 

5.) Ginebra lost. Argh. Alaska swept the semifinal series. You win some, you lose some. Better luck next time, JC. MISS 
4.) My turbulent mood swings. This week was full of ups and downs. I was jumping for joy in a minute then after a while I feel so depressed. I really don't know what is with this week. Hopefully, I'll be better next week. MISS 
3.) Balance my schedule. As of now I really can't manage my time. I seriously need to follow my schedule. I should also stop my excessive fan girling. MISS 
2.) School works and scholar service. 7 weeks to go and I'm all stressed out. Help me please. MISS
1.) God gave me all the signs I need, all I have to do is to wait patiently. With this I am inspired with Bible verse: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding." (Proverbs 3:5) HIT 

Again, sorry for my not so enthusiastic post for today. Gomen. Ciao!

 Hi guys! After the Valentine's and Lunar New Year weekend, its back to regular programming in today's edition of Top Five. 

5.) My Valentine's Date - Sam Milby. I spent my Valentine's Day doing something for a good cause. I volunteered in a fundraising concert aimed to build a shelter for the unprivileged ones. The concert featured some of the up-and-coming artists and one of the hottest stars in the Philippines, Sam Milby. The event was pretty successful and I am very happy to help in this kind of event. Of course other than extending a helping hand, it was great to see Sam Milby in person. He looks so nice and good looking if I may say. This Valentine's day is definitely one for keeps. HIT
4.) Dwight Howard's hot body. I was watching NBA All-Star Weekend and I can't help but to stare at Dwight Howard's sexy body. He has this perfectly toned shoulders that are just so HOT! But other than his big muscles, I really like Dwight as a player. I love his smile, his angst and his over-all game. As for now, Dwight Howard is my favorite and sexiest NBA player. I can't wait for the playoffs. Go Orlando Magic! HIT. 
3.) Ginebra's losing skid. After winning the exhausting series against Talk 'n Text, Ginebra is on a roll losing versus Alaska. The worst part is JC Intal is not on his ready for take-off form. Another do-or-die game on Wednesday. MISS
2.) Upcoming school works. Well as of now, we still have nothing to do but I am scared that work load may fill up on the next coming weeks and thinking about it makes me distress already. Moreover this would be my last term as a college student and I am quite scared of the future. I am scared if I would get a decent job and if I would be able to keep up with my dreams. Wish me luck guys. MISS
1.) I saw the signs. I was in the midst of giving up my unrequited love for I weigh the pros against the cons. As a result of my evaluation, there are more cons on pursuing this inspiration then I started wondering if I should move on and let go. To help me decide if my crush is worth waiting, I asked God for a sign. The first was a van that resembles his car then after just few minutes a van that looks like his van popped out. But I was not convinced. I asked for another sign and that is a back mirror on a car yet again after a few minutes there were handful of cars with that specifications. OM! I thought that maybe it was just my lucky day so I decided to ask for one last sign. This one is kind of hard compared to the two. If I could see his name then that's it. It took me an hour before I saw the sign. I was actually feeling upset already since I can't find his name. I looked at it everywhere - at the posters, cars and stores. After many tries, I finally saw his name written on a public utility jeepney. At first I could not believe it so I stared at his name for a few minutes before I believed that it was for real. I was so happy and I thought that maybe this is it. On the other note, while I was searching for all the signs I read so many positive lines that made me keep my faith. I know that God is with me all the time. He never fails me and He will never will for every thing has a purpose. HIT

That's it for now. Ciao. :)

 Hi guys. In commemorating the season of love, today's Top Five would consist of my favorite love songs and its lyrics. Moreover for this is a special edition, it will be a two-part list with the first one is the listing of my all-time favorite love songs while the second part consists of songs that I feel so emotional with every time I listen to it. And so since Valentine's day is just around the corner and I am currently crushing on someone, please bear my mushiness. 

Top Five Ultimate Love Songs

5.) Unbelievable (by Craig David) - I feel like you've always been, forever a part of me. And it's so unbelievable to finally be in love, somewhere I never though I'd be. 
4.) All the Love in the Word (by The Corrs) - Still I believe I'm missing something real. I need someone who really sees me.
3.) How Did You Know (version of: Gary Valenciano) - How did you know I needed someone like you in my life. That there was an empty space in my heart. You came at the right time in my life. 
2.) If You're Not The One (by: Daniel Bedingfield) - I never know what the future brings but I know you are here with me now. We'll make it through and I hope you are the one I share my life with. 
1.) More than Anyone (by Gavin de Graw) - I'm going to love you more than anyone. I'm going to hold you closer than before. 

In my non existent love life, these songs will make me fall in love. Even just for a few minutes,listening to these five songs will make me believe in the greatest magic of all, LOVE. 

Top Ten Emo Songs

10.) Love Drunk (by: Boys Like Girls) - I used to be love drunk, but now I'm hangover. I love you forever, forever is over. 
9.) Fell in Love Without You acoustic version (by: Motion City Soundtrack) - Last night I fell in love without you. The stars at night aren't as big and bright as you make them out to be.
8.) No Good (by Kate Voegele) - I'm moving in reverse under your mighty curse. I hate myself for loving you. I turn my head away but my heart will remain 'till the day I learn you no good for me
7.) Every Little Thing He Does is Magic (version of: MYMP) Coz every little thing he does is magic. Every thing he does just turns me on. Even though my life before was tragic now I know my love for him goes on
6.) Do I Need a Reason ('D Sound) - Do I need a reason to tell you why I'm singing you this song. 
5.) Dare You to Move -(by: Switchfoot) - I dare you to move.  I dare you to move.   
4.) Kailan (version of: MYMP) - Bawat araw sinusundan. di ka naman tumitingin. Anong aking dapat gawin? 
3.) Ordinary day (by: Vanessa Carlton) Just a dream, just an ordinary dream. As I wake in bed, and the boy, that ordinary boy wasn't all in my head. Did he asked If could come along? It all seemed so real. 
2.) Out of Reach (by: Gabrielle) - So confused, my heart's bruised. Was I ever loved by you? Out of reach so far, I never had you heart. Out of reach couldn't see, we were never meant to be. 
1.) Waiting in Vain (version of: MYMP) - Don't talk to me as if you think I'm dumb. I wanna know when you're gonna come. I don't wanna wait in vain for your love. I don't wanna wait in vain for you love. 

I had a hard time picking only five songs so I decided to choose ten songs that are very close to my heart. It's like these songs are written especially for me. These songs helped me cope with my heart aches in my always unrequited love. That's life I guess. You can never really have it all.

5.) Arashi Around Asia in Tokyo 2008 DVD. I have started watching and to no avail it has no subs. Oh well. At least I got the feel of an Arashi concert. It was my first time to "watch" an Arashi concert and I was super amazed. The stage, costumes, performance, and everything. Hands down. They are the best. HIT
4.) Got my 1 Tera byte external hard drive. After 2 weeks of nagging, I finally bought a 1TB external hard drive. :)) HIT
3.) Wants to learn Japanese so much. I have been buying books on how to speak Japanese and maybe this summer I will take Japanese lessons (hopefully!). Aside from the language, I also want to learn the culture, food, and every thing and every thing about the country.Through this I could learn more about my favorite, ARASHI. hehe.  HIT
2.) Ginebra won its quarterfinal series against Talk n Text. After 3 do or die games, JC Intal and the rest of the Gin Kings have survived and are going to semifinals versus Alaska Aces. Wohoo! On the side note, for the nth time JC broke his career high for points last game garnering a total of 28 points. Job well done, the rocket! HIT 
1.) Crush-ed out. I am crushing on someone who is so much older than me. Honestly, he can be like my father due to our age difference. But just for clarification, its only a one-sided crush and I do not have any intention to take actions on it. Its just for inspiration and nothing else. However, I think this will be another short lived inspiration for he is leaving soon. Tsktsk. MISS

'Till the next list, Ciao.

 Hi guys! Here's another edition of my hit or miss list. :))

5.) Ginebra won yesterday. Wohoo! They escaped their do or die game yesterday with the heroic acts of Eric Menk and of course JC Intal with his career high of 25 points. However I think JC is not yet ready to take on crucial moments. For two games in a row, he missed free throws that could make the team snatch the victory. Oh well. Another do or die game on Friday. Go Ginebra! Never say die. HIT/MISS (I can't decide!)
4.) I need to fix my schedule. I'm still bothered with my scholar service. I have to finish 44.5 hours of duty in 7 weeks. Yea, I know that compared to other schools, our required number of service is rather short but still I have other things to do and I'm still adjusting with this new  schedule. MISS
3.) I received my four month allowance. Well on a positive note of being a scholar, I got my monthly allowance. I think I now have sufficient money to buy my top 2 list. hehe. HIT
2.) Super badly needs an external hard drive. My internal hard drive's memory has still enough space but with all these Arashi files I need an external hard drive for extra memory. MISS
1.) Arashi. I'm still on a Arashi high. Today I read some of their scanlations and I just can't help but fall in love again and again with them. They are just so.. Gahh. I can't explain it. I'm speechless with their awesomeness. Also, I'm torn between Sho and Nino. I can't decide who's my ichiban. I think Sho and I are alike in many ways but I really love Nino's personality funny but deep. Gah. What a problem right? HIT

That's it for now. Ciao. :))

 I think I now have the answer on what to write in this LJ. Yup, yup. I finally figured out what to write. After two nights of thinking, I proudly introduce to you, drum roll please, my Top Five: Hit or Miss. This list will consist my daily raves and rants like what drama I am currently hooked into, school happenings, my latest discovery and all other things that made me happy or pissed off. Its an anything goes list so expect the unexpected guys.

Here is today's Top  Five:

5.) School works and scholar duty. Gosh!! Its only the 2nd week of the term and I am feeling stressed out. MISS
4.) JC Intal and PBA's quarterfinals. I'm still bitter over JC (I'll share this story sometime soon.) and the worst part is Barangay Ginebra Kings are 0-2 in the series. Tonight's their do or die game so I'm a l bit scared to watch. Oh well at least their opposing team is Talk N' Text and Mac Cardona is there. (Wait, I forgot to warn you I'm a huge basketball fan. ) MISS
3.) Reading my first manga, Hana Yori Dango. Since I'm huge fan of all the tv adaptations (especially the Japanese version!!), I decided to read the manga. Well, at first I had a hard time reading from right to left and I'm confused on the sequence but I think I'm quite progressing. I'm on Chapter 16 now and it is still a long way to go. Fighting! HIT
2.) Badly needs an external hard drive. With all these Arashi files, I really need an external hard drive. The problem is I don't have the time to scout. MISS
1.) Arashi Around Asia in Tokyo 2008 DVD. Well, my Tita who lives in Japan bought me this DVD. It's my first Arashi DVD and I'm super excited to watch it. I hope there would be Englishsubs but I am quite certain there will be none since it is from Japan. Oh well, what matters most is that I can watch their amazing performance. I hope someday I can watch it live. HIT

That's it for my first ever Top Five! 'Till the next list. Ciao!

 Well, this calls for a celebration for this is my first post here at LJ. I've been here for almost a month now and it's only now that I have decided to post an entry. As of now I'm managing 3 accounts: Facebook (add me:, Twitter (follow me: yannacastro) and this LJ (snowwhite007). Out of all these 3, my twitter is the most updated account so if you want a piece of my life you can follow me there  tweeps. :))

I really don't know what to put up in this account for I only made this for fan girl purposes. Arashi, wink wink. I'm totally into them right now. I love their songs, their concerts and their tv shows. They are just pure awesome. As such, I want to thank all the Arashi communities and friends who keep uploading Arashi related files and translating them to English. Thank you so much because without you guys I would not have a chance to get to know more about these five amazing boys. Arigato.

Well, that's it for now. I still don't know what to write but I will try to keep this updated as much as possible. Maybe I will try to post my daily raves and rants here. Hmm. Let's see. Hajimemashite!
