Doushite kimi wo suki ni natte shimattan darou?


Ignoring the incredibly long title, I must say that This song. Is. Addicting!

This song is the newest Japanese single of my ultimate favorite boyband of all time, Dong Bang Shin Ki!

It’s been stuck in my head ever since yesterday morning, and I can’t get it out. But I’m not complaining. The bitter-sweet melody, bitter-sweet lyrics, bitter-sweet voices and the bitter-sweet (but not heavily emotional) MV just mix so very well together. I love the simplicity and beauty of the song. You don’t have to be able to understand Japanese to know that the song is melancholy and sad, because the melody alone gives you the feeling. And the beautiful voices of my dear DBSK guys complimented that feeling (although, I could do without the synthesizer… but meh, if that’s what they want then fine).

Here is the translation of the lyrics (credits to system_chaos @ livejournal.com):

Why Did I End Up Falling For You

Why did I end up falling for you?
No matter how much time has passed
I still thought you were right here
But you’ve already chosen a different path

Why couldn’t I call out to you at all?
Every day and night growing emotions
And words overflow
But I realized that
They’d never reach you again

Since that day I first met you
I felt like I already knew you
You and I melded into each other so smoothly

It was natural for me to be where you were
The two of us grew up together
But you’ve already chosen a different path

Why did I end up falling for you?
No matter how much time has passed
I still thought you were right here
Now we can’t turn back

The special meaning held by this day
Today you stood with a happy expression
You looked beautiful while praying to god

But I wasn’t the one next to you
And the image of you receiving blessings
Of that how could I let go?

Why did I end up falling for you?
How we were before
We can’t return to it anymore (I’ve thought it through, thought it through)

Why didn’t I hold on to your hand?
No matter how much time has passed
You should’ve always been by my side (never changing)

But still, even if I’m nowhere near you anymore
I’m praying that you
May be happy for eternity
No matter how much that would make me lonely (no matter how lonely)

All I know is that I ♥HEART♥ this song, and being the BIG weirdo that I am, I am going to memorize it!

I’ve even printed out the romanisation and translation and recorded the song on my cellphone (because I am poor and have no tape recorder or a cassette player)! The words are kind of hard to follow because aside from being in Japanese, the pronunciation is really fast unlike their other Japanese songs… but I’m slowly getting the hang of it!

And I’m still loving this song even though I’ve listened to it like more that twenty times today!

And just for the heck of it, here’s a fan-made MV featuring the Dong Bang Boys themselves:

Later, dudes!

A Friend’s Farewell


Sigh.

Today is one of those depressing days when loneliness creeps to the depths of my heart (lol, dramatic much?) and make me realize how I terribly miss my friends. So I thought of sharing a poem I wrote more than a year ago, months before migrating from Philipppines to US.

Here it goes…

A Friend’s Farewell

I always knew there will be a time for us to say goodbye.

Here on earth, nothing is permanent except change.

Even our friendship will fade out soon.

It’s hard to accept, but it’s the truth.

 

I know the fact that once our bond is broken,

Nothing will ever be the same again.

But I’ll never forget that one time,

You’ve been part of my reality.

 

And I’ll continue to live on the memories

With the ultimate dream that we both share.

That when we meet again someday,

Even if we are incapable of bringing back the broken bond forever,

We can still make a better bond, greater…

Stronger…

That so long life preserves it,

That only death can break it,

That every man will realize

What friendship is all about.

 

My mind is young and unrefined, and my heart frail and weak.

My understanding of things is not so sharp nor sleek.

But let me tell you, my friend, how you made me understand,

That being part of someone’s life’s an experience truly grand.

 

 

You may not be the perfect friend nor person all around.

But you help me up with your hand when I fall on the ground.

And that is enough reason why I like you just the same.

It’s just a common fact that without you, I’d go insane.

 

 

And so my friend, before I end this message just for you,

I want to thank you so much for all the things you do.

I am thankful for all the things you made me understand.

I thank you so for making my child-bounded mind expand.

 

 

I thank you for accepting me just because I’m me.

I thank you for not requiring rewards or any fee.

But the greatest thank you I can say in the end,

Is this: Thank you for being there for me, my trusted friend.

 

 

We’ve been traveling together in this long road of life.

But here we come to a vexing point where the road’s been cut by a knife.

Today, the once one way had been divided by a cross.

I wish we don’t have to part, but in this life, I’m not Boss.

 

And so before I step outside the borders of our home,

I want to make sure that you will never feel alone.

It’s impossible for me to come to you whenever you cry,

Nor will I be there to boost you up when you become too shy.

 

So remember this, my friend, you will never be alone.

Even if I’m far away, in your heart I’m home.

 

The actual poem I wrote in my notebook took three whole pages back-to-back (yeah, it’s that long). And I don’t have the patience to type all of it, so I just selected some of the best parts and put it here.

 

Mushy, corny (whatever you call it), surprisingly, I don’t care. I just miss my friends. I miss hanging out with them, I miss chilling out with them, I miss hearing them scream in my ears, I miss them being the reason I have no food, I miss heart-to-heart talks with them (corny, I know), I miss being mercilessly tortured and teased, I miss squealing whenever a cute guy passes by, I miss copying their homework whenever I forgot to do mine, I miss pushing each other off to get a turn on the hammock, I miss eating Indian Mangoes dipped in soysauce and sugar, I miss singing our lungs out whenever a favorite song is palying… I just miss everything.

 

Sigh. I wonder how they’re doing?

 

You guys, any members of the “KIDS Friendship Association,” or my classmates from Archimedes and Boyle batch 2007 who happens to drop by and read this blog, I just want to say I miss you guys, and take care.

 

God bless everyone.

 

~*EDIT*~

 

I forgot to mention that I actually made this poem into a song consisting of ten stanzas (all different from each other) and four chords played repeatatively.

Lessons and Camp


My internet-probation officially ended yesterday. After helping clean up the house for a couple hours and cooking lunch and dinner for another couple hours, I’ve been sitting in front of the computer for nearly four hours, catching up with the things I missed and even writing and posting a long chapter of my fan fiction story.

And I’m happy to say that the past two days wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I spent my time sitting on a corner reflecting about different things about life (deep, isn’t it? hehe), and reading Judith McNaught’s “Something Wonderful” which really proved to be effective at diverting my mind from thinking about giving up to temptation (especially when there are two computers at your house, just staring at you wide-eyed and luring you like a siren to switch them on and  sit in front of them…xP).

AND I learned some really important things.

Number one: You learn something new everyday. For example, yesterday I learned that I could last for more than 48 hours away from “Information Highway” without losing my sanity (if I have any) and tearing my hair out. And the other day, I learned that I definitely should refrain from reading NC 17 fan fictions (even though I’m already 17) because it’s difficult to get them off my mind, especially if it’s gross and disturbing. Get it? It doesn’t matter how small or how big it is, as long as there is something you learned.

Number two: Curing an addiction takes an incredible amount of will power. And I’m not just talking about the internet. I’m also talking about smoking, drinking, and of course, drugs. I used to get frustrated and annoyed whenever I see people having difficulty quitting these vices. I always say “Just quit already! Dang it!”  But now, I think I understand how hard it is, a little.

I also watched the TV premier of Camp Rock. Not bad. The songs are really good. But some parts made me feel different levels of frustration. First is when Mitchie, the female main character, lied about her mom’s occupation. Dang, girl, don’t you watch TV? Lying only works if your mom IS NOT in the same camp cooking in the kitchen!

Just kidding. Lying is bad, people. BAD.

Second is the antagonist, Tess. Her character made me scream at the screen “EVIL! PURE EVIIIIL” Seriously, Sharpay from High School Musical maybe annoying, but she’s funny. Annoying but funny. And I like annoying-but-funny! Tess’ character is pure annoying.

Third is that Kevin and Nick did not get enough screen time… Or maybe it’s just me?

Oh, well. I guess that’s that. I wasn’t bashing the actresses, in fact, they did a great job. The movie wasn’t bad and the songs are stuck on my head. Kind of makes me wonder how great it’d be to have that kind of Camp in real life.

… *long silence*

Erm… I suddenly ran out of things to say.

x) ehehe.

Ciao for now!

Sad Bunny


I got scolded, so I’m not in the greatest mood today…

I made a very big, and I mean BIG mistake which can never ever be corrected… ever again. It caused a lot of trouble to my parents, and will be causing a lot more trouble for the next few years until my brother turns 18 or gets a high-paying job (which I doubt will ever happen… at least not if he doesn’t get his lazy butt off in front of the computer). And now I am being devoured alive by guilt.

Big. Ugly. Guilt!

All thanks to my inability to get my attention off the computer and my memory slip-ups. Curse my internet addiction and temporary memory loss! I shake my fist at you!

And so for punishment I am going to stay at least 1 meter radius away from computers for at least forty-eight hours. In short, two days.

Two whole days without computer means no internet surfing, no e-mail checking, no solitaire rounds, no fanfictions, no blogs, no YouTube videos, no Friendster, no DBSK/ Super Junior/ the rest of the K-Pop industry stalking, no music, no smiles, no giggles, no drooling on the keyboard, no evil glares from my brothers for laughing randomly at the screen, no nothing.

Now excuse me while I curl up in a dark corner and wallow in self-pity till my internet-probation is over. I will be back online in two days, IF I’m still alive.

Random Note: Camp Rock is premiering tomorrow! My brother and I am excited, which rarely happens because we barely have anything in common (we’re like mangoes and coke, we don’t go together or disaster happens ;-)) We practically had all the songs memorized, what with the massive advertising. The sneak peeks look promising, so I’m gonna make sure I don’t miss it.

Another Random Note: I can’t find Mr. Pink anywhere. I wonder where it went?

Kung Fu Panda is Awesomeness! And I’m Back!


Hello everyone! I’m BAAAAAACCKKK!!!

*cue complete total silence and crickets chirping*

*Meriken sweatdrops* Anybody? Hello? No clapping? Warm welcome? Balloons or crept papers? Anything?

SmileyBunny Pink: What did you expect? Nobody reads your blog, dimwit.

Watch your mouth, Mr. Pink. Okay, someday, sooner or later (SmileyBunny: Or never.) somebody will read this, so here I go!

My dad, brothers and I just got back from the theater about three hours ago from watching Kung Fu Panda, and as the title says, it was really awesome! The movie was hilarious, and totally worth the 25 dollars (not mine, my dad’s) spent with the tickets and snacks (three adults, one child, 3 medium-sized sodas and one box of Snow Caps chocolate. Yummy… not).

The story was about how Po, the biggest fattest and clumsiest panda Kung Fu fan around, was appointed by the great master… Turtle (whoopsies, I forgot his name) to become the legendary Dragon Warrior. Tai Long (did I spell that right?), an evil Kung Fu genius, had escaped from prison and was threatening to come back to take his “rightful place” as the true Dragon Warrior, receive the Legendary Dragon Scroll and achieve strength beyond anything imaginable. Master… err… Racoon (again, I forgot his name) had to train the big, fat and clumsy Po to become a proper Dragon Warrior. Po and the five greatest Kung Fu masters (Tigress, Monkey, Crane, Mantis, and Viper… is that right?) goes out to defeat Tai Long and stop him from getting the Dragon Scroll and defeat him…

Okay, you know what, that was the most pathetic attempt I’ve ever written for a summary. And I’m totally horrible at names. Just watch the movie. It’s waaay much better.

The movie is great. It’s a mixture of comedy, action, and a little tint of drama. I was already cracking up at the first three minutes of the movie, imagine how cracked up I was after 2 hours! I haven’t had that much fun watching a movie since… never. I haven’t really watched many movies, but I can say this is one of the best I’ve seen so far.

Watch it! And bring some friends and/or family with you! The more the merrier!

AND I haven’t been able to update these past few weeks (not that anybody cares… cause no one’s reading!) because I’ve been busy. As to what about I shall not tell…

SmileyBunny: *raises one imaginary eyebrow* Busy? Really?

Yes, really.

SmileyBunny: *raises his imaginary eyebrow higher* Really really?

Yes, really really! Why are you looking at me like that!? *starts to sweat*

SmileyBunny: *couldn’t raise his imaginary eyebrow higher so it fell off* Really really really?

*Breaks down* Okay, fine! The truth is that I was too lazy to update! Happy!? (SmileyBunny: *smirks*) And I’m working on a fan fiction which I was trying to finish before Sunday, but seeing that today is Sunday, I kind of gave up rushing and decided to take it slow. Who knew writing about psychopaths can be difficult?

I’m still working on that fanfiction so I won’t be around for a few days… or weeks, who knows? (SmileyBunny: Who cares?) but once I’m finished (hopefully writer’s block will not attack me) I’ll be posting a lot about my utterly unexciting life (I think…).

So, ciao for now!

On a completely random note, I really miss my mom.
