true sight

Posted in cosplay, life on October 19, 2008 by phua

i am usually lost in the present. the past fades to obscurity and the future remains a blank. but now, thanks to reminders from external sources, i have become acutely aware of projected proceedings for say, the coming few months. its like suddenly i can see my schedule clearly for weeks and weeks ahead and it is very frightening; very demoralising. haha i feel like screaming right now..

and my wisdom teeth are growing out. its driving me nuts!! and then hor, cos the teeth only come out like one quarter, they trap food.. so sometimes at the end of the day, before i sleep, i will brush my teeth, then these huge chunks of food from lunch and dinner will pop out and oh… it feels so great to remove them… but i worry that maybe i missed some here and there. so i try not to think about it.. oh well!! i will pray for peace and wisdom

will share a nice cosplay to end this on a nice note 😀

(its the ever-popular and ubiquitous [or seen everywhere] cloud strife from FF7! the game i abandoned at the second form of sephiroth cos he slaughtered my party over and over again. stupid one winged pegasus thing.. go back to jenova…. u…. evil……… horse. thing!! i got a gold chocobo though, i remember!)

i have a confession to make:

i have been reading Bleach manga (in Chinese!!) since sec3.

ever since book 2 or 3, i have had to wait agonisingly long for each subsequent book to come out. it was like this: one day, while browsing a computer games shop in amk central, i suddenly realised they had a tiny shelf of manga. and at that time, i totally did not know anything about manga.. i only had watched the occasional flame of recca, samurai x and fushigii yuugi on Axn (yes, they used to screen these anime on Axn..)

so i looked at this tiny little shelf of manga. and i just picked up a book at random. the blurb talked about a 15 year old high school student who could see spirits. they only had book 1 & 3 if i remb correctly.. the front cover art attracted me, so i just bought it on a whim! evidently, 我的眼光是很不错的!!!bleach has since become quite ubiquitous. sadly though, i haven’t kept up with the manga. i’m still stuck around book 20+, with funny espada politics. (another weird thing: because i read the manga in chinese, all the character names i know are chinese, like 黑崎一护 (ichigo) & 朽木百哉 (byakuya), so all the ‘english’ names i know now are from exchanging conversations with church friends who watch the anime or read scanlations. hahaha. i will persist doggedly in my manga-reading!!)

early books at some points made me cry (not in frustration but in empathy OK!!!) , but now its really mostly action action and more action. BANKAI!! (they actually use this unreadable character to show bankai in the manga: 卍解。 i was like “WHAT jie????” who knows how to read that symbol sia..)

oh well. bloodthirsty fans have to be catered to. back to the point of my blogging…. i found this really really really cool cosplay of Ulquiorra. i found it on this cosplay blog so visit it if, like me, you like to see GOOD cosplayy. (haha the owner of that blog has quite a critical eye, so only A* cosplay is posted. and i mean really really zai cosplay lol)

without further ado, may i present Ulquiorra Schiffer (brother of Claudia Schiffer… wahahaha)

isnt it dam proooooooo……. *zombie*

methinks he looks better than the original manga Ulquiorra…

ok time to dota XD
