Words Turn To Action: Heechul's Military Enlistment

So it's official; Super Junior's space big star Kim Heechul has announced that he is joining the army by September 1. That's eight days from now.

Ah, my reaction: totally shocked. I mean, Super Junior is in the middle of their Mr. Simple promotions, why the heck decide on this now?! Then it hit me, reality hurts. Each of them will eventually have to serve the army no matter what. It really pains me to think that Heechul will be away for two long years, not being active with the other members. I was even anticipating for a Super Show 4 where I can see them all again but somehow I feel discouraged, thinking that Heechul will surely not be on the show anymore. Seriously, I cry every time I'm reminded of this reality. From the day this news was announced until today, I'm carrying a heavy heart.  My parents would not understand why I almost skipped dinner last night. My workmates would not understand why I'm telling them I'm depressed with this news. I just can't explain well to people who are not Super Junior fans.

I'm still in a state of depression but I know eventually, I'll have to accept this. No matter what Heechul and the rest of the Super Junior members decide on, I'll support them and wish them the best.

Thank you Heechul and Super Junior for making my life exciting.
Saranghaeyo Kim Heechul, Milky White Skin Kim Heechul~! Super Junior fighting~!

Skuld Cosplay in TorCh 2

Because it's been a while since my last cosplay and because most of the cosplay events are held in a Saturday, which means I have work, I decided to take a leave for the TorCh cosplay event. And I'm just grateful our team head granted my request and even asked me several cosplay questions (ex. Who are you cosplaying? Do you make your own costume? etc.).

Finally, my Skuld costume which I have kept for many months now will be in used. I went in the event together with my sister who was wearing a waloli costume.

Here's a pic of me cosplaying as Skuld from the anime Ah! My Goddess:

I pulled several all-nighters just to finish my accessories and props because I'm such a busy person. XD

A lot of cosplayers were great and awesome. The level of cosplaying in Cebu has gotten better and better. I salute those people who do excellent props. I don't have the skill in making good props so I stick to simple props only. :<

The event was nice but I was not really happy with the venue. Events like cosplay should be held in a bigger venue because surely, there will be a lot of people attending. But aside on the venue issue, everything turned out good. Also, I was a bit disappointed that only three pairs joined the contest. Compared to last year's, there were I think ten pairs competing. There were some good cosplays on the event but did not joined the contest. Well, I hope next time, more cosplayers will join the contest, it's more exciting and fun.

I'm just glad I can cosplay again. 'Til my next cosplay! =D

PS. I'm not sure with my next cosplay though, I'll have to ask for another leave again. =)

Blow Your Mind by Mr. Simple

Finally, after a year and four months, Super Junior is back with their 5th album called "Mr. Simple". This is the first time I have waited for a Super Junior comeback because when I became a fan of them, it was around their goodbye stages already from their Bonamana promotions.

I really love all their songs from their new album. Ever since it was released last Aug. 2, 2011 12AM KST (yeah, I pulled an all-nighter to wait for the album's release online, that's 11PM in our time), I was listening to the album countless times already. It somehow lessens my stress from work and worries. My personal fave song from the album is "My Love, My Kiss, My Heart" sung by Super Junior-KRY. The melody is just so good with matching strong and deep lyrics.

The Mr. Simple song is so catchy and addicting...always a last song syndrome. Their music video is good too. I don't see it as cheap or anything because it's their style and I love it since it emphasizes well their choreography. Speaking of choreography, I don't even see their choreo as simple. Looking at the dance steps, they were pretty hard.

I personally love this second teaser for the music video:


An here's their music video for Mr. Simple:

Super Junior's Mr. Simple has definitely blown my mind. I wish a lot of success for their comeback and I feel sad thinking this might be their last album so I will support them as best as I can. ♡
