    Trixia Salonga

    Hi! I'm Trixia and welcome to my slice of life. I'm not your average blogger, I'm a hybrid of multi-dimensional shoujo, a rare breed of legal loli and a unique original producer of ideas and inspiration. My path goes on the other side of the road which is less traveled, where thrill and excitement rests. This blog holds my inner thoughts, experiences, opinions and out-of-the-ordinary theories which I keep as a journal of my life's highlights. Contact me at reshadaseamaiden@gmail.com for collaboration



    While we are all dazzling over the cuteness of Chii, her simple innocence that seems to become a topic of  'Echi-ness' for all Chobits anime and manga fans, we came into a thought that despite all these pure faces, their mother (Chitose Hibiya) still abandoned them.

    Ms. Landlady has always been smiling, she was like the 'I got everything' under control character in the Chobits series but, we suspect that she is more than what meets the eye. 

    Behind that all ever shining smile, we were all surprised that even such an innocent-looking character like her, would throw Chii at the side of the road like garbage. We probably would have accepted if her memory was erased and still have consciousness, then tried to lose her at the side of the road, like a puppy, but it's somewhat like Miss Pepper Potts from Iron Man saying " I do anything and everything Mr. Stark requires, including occasionally TAKING OUT THE TRASH. Will that be all?" 

    Yes, Chitose treated Chii literally like trash, unlike what Ms. Potts who only talked in Metaphor but still carried out her job. 

    and what happened to Freya?

    We suspect even worse, our vision that Chii's sister, Freya had much worse fate than her, as we predict that she was butchered or let's say it a bit more technical 'disassembled' in a matter of way.

    We all know that both girls Chii and Freya were extremely close to their creator father to the point that it seems jealousy stemmed from their mother with the seemingly endless attention his husband gave to Chii and Freya.

    Thankfully, she spared Chii, which we think was a mere mercy action of a mother, although Chitose Hibiya did erase 'almost' every memory she had with her former family. Well, if she didn't we wouldn't have the series, right?

    In conclusion, Miss Landlady isn't really all the innocent looking door next-door neighbor that we know. We think that she is a tender looking psychopath - that would seem to snap out if triggered anytime soon. 

    So I guess better be careful and be kind to your neighbors - especially the cute, innocent looking ones, because you may never know.

    Sailoormoon marriage certificate naoko takeuchi





    Yes, we have ordered this. It seems to be a magazine though, we did not expect that but a little extra is good!

    I can't wait to see it!






    . Sunday, June 28, 2020 .

    I had a dream. My family knows that whenever I do, there's something that needs to be heard. They've gotten used to it, most of the dreams I told them about impending deaths.

    This time it's about a staff dinner with my former alma matter, St. Patrick's school's Principal (Violeta Lantin) treated everyone for a dinner. She was there, it was like a nostalgic recollection.

    She announced that she made the parents write what their children needs and will raffle it. 

    She picked up my moms name, she read that mom wrote that I needed a laptop and called me upfront to confirm if I do, I said said no, I don't really need it and turned back to my seat. By the time, I got back to my seat, she was gone. 

    I looked everywhere on what the staff were eating, and they were having a delicious hotpot in a black wide earthenware pot, it looked so delicious that I was almost about to dig in. Gladly, my guardian helped me and not let me eat, well, you're not supposed to eat anything in the other side or theres no turning back after al
    Crab egg hotpot





    I wish I can try the soup, it looked like it was sauteed like liziqis' with the mushrooms (enokitake) and added a bit broth, the aroma of garlic and spices almost called me to the other side!~ 

    Anyway, when I was awaken with meaws call from his relatives that someone was needing a computer repair help, the kid would be learning online and would be enrolled at St. Patrick soon. 

    Mushroom chili hotpot

    I was surprised and told him about what I dreamt. He said that maybe Principal still oversees her students and students-to be even after death, especially that education is greatly affected due to pandemic.

    Up until now, I am convincing him to cook that hot pot for me.

    Vogue Moschino school uniform autumn 2013

    The adults did a really great job in protecting children from the pandemic, there are fewer cases of COVID-19 infections among kids, this is due mostly because the schools and government immediately took action and decided to suspend the classes until the infection gets controlled. 

    However, as the vaccine will take two years to develop, classes reopening might be a huge risk of becoming another wave of infection, and this time, among children.

    Other countries have decided to do full-time home studies for the children, and when every child is at home, the need to dress up for a uniform becomes unnecessary and less likely to be practiced.

    In a few month's time, we won't be seeing much of that cute plaid or symbol-of youth uniforms for quite a while and we will miss it.



    Other people like me, cosplayers or models, wear uniforms to portray a character or promote a fashion. What we can see in the near future is that as fewer and fewer people wear school uniforms on the streets, it will become more likely to be converted into a fashion statement out in the streets. People will wear it as fashion to emphasize youthful vibes and a symbol of feminity. 

    For me, though uniforms help keep my closet from stacking up too much clothing and less stress for me to think of what will wear for the day.

    Did I also mention how easy they are to laundry?
    They're so light, they don't take much space and dries up easily after laundry. I don't need too much effort, plus it looks anime-ish IRL (In real life).



    Convenience

    While uniforms offer the lightest load for easy washing, it goes the same for the wearer. Since the cloth material light, movement is easy. The fashion is buildable, you can add cardigans and high socks to add more warmth or style.

    Variety

    Uniforms come in different lengths, styles, colors, and designs making it a most flexible fashion statement in every timeline.

    Ristarte Cautious Hero flying boobs exposed


    *** Spoiler alert: Don't proceed if you have not watched Cautious Hero's ending***


    Cautious Hero: The Hero is Overpowered but Overly Cautious, or in Japanese Kono Yūsha ga Ore Tsuē Kuse ni Shinchō Sugiru is one of the Isekai anime that we have watched airing from October 2019 to December of 2019. Even if the anime is not the last Isekai genres that are lined in our list, this anime did capture our undivided attention with it's overpowering similarities to Ainz Ooal Gown in Overlord

    Every episode is a mystery as the story progresses in the search for the main character's background - Seiya Ryuguin, of the reason why he became too overly cautious. The anime's last few episodes answer all the questions in every watcher's mind. However, there might still be a few Easter eggs that we still have to uncover, and that is none other than the protagonist's Goddess, Ristarte (also called Risutarute in Japanese).

    We may not have noticed it all along, but we were already spoilt of the ending just from the start of the first episode - the introduction of the Goddess, Ristarte. Ristarte is first introduced as a rookie Goddess who is assigned to provide salvation on another world named, Gaeabrande from the evil Lord Demon through sending a hero to save it.

    So How did we get spoilt again? Ristarte maybe one that they classify in the 'useless Goddess' category, but that's not the easter egg that we are looking for. It's actually in one hidden meaning just behind the name of the Goddess, Ristarte. Yes, I'm pretty sure you've got the hint by this time. If you type out the word Ristarte with autocorrect on, it will immediately suggest the spoiler. The Autocorrect will give you the suggestion, Restart. It seems as if only the letter 'e' was placed on the end of the word, and the addition of 'i' in the middle was inevitable to give a better pronunciation. 

    The meaning of the word Restart means start again or a new beginning, which seems to be the case of what happened to Ristarte, when she became a Goddess after her death as a human.

    The Goddess of healing, also known as the wife or girlfriend of the Cautious Hero, Seiya, has indeed gone into a brand-new restart after their gruesome encounter with the Demon Lord from their past life. We can actually say that Ristarte was reincarnated as a Goddess from being human when the team's plan of attack failed, and they were engulfed by the Demon Lord. 

    As to whether Ristarte's reincarnation was some sort of apology, a wish or a reward from Ariadoa is a still a mystery in the anime. All we know is that Ariadoa has knowledge of Ristarte's pregnancy at the beginning and that they chose not to disclose this to Seiya, so as not to distract him from the quest to battle with the Demon Lord. 

    Can we say that Ristarte has also experienced being Isekai-d? We say maybe - although in a higher form or being - as a Goddess. So both Seiya and Ristarte did get their own 'restart' on their own dimensions or the world after all. 

    Their brand new life would have been left separate, and both of them would never have met, but it's as if they were meant to meet again, although it feels that the next life they would have is a dangerous atonement from their last mistake - being careless.

    Even so, it's like destiny did bring these two together, and we just wonder, would there be another chance that they'll still marry and have a child of their own once more? Well, since Seiya's memories have already been unlocked, we wonder if this will make some changes with her 'usual treatment' with Ristarte?

    Other questions lingering, what happened to the other team members in Seiya's past group? Were they reincarnated? Was the child also reincarnated?

    We sure would like to know... don't leave us hanging, please!

    Here we are, hoping for another season.

    Till next time!

    Visayas Market Delivery Vegetables food meat

    It's my first time buying fresh food virtually. We don't usually do this because we prefer to see the condition of the food by ourselves. Also, that's the only time I get to go out to catch fresh air, going to the Hypermarket. Unfortunately, I am left with no choice but to order it online. Why you may ask? I've gotten a bit weak due to my monthly period, plus the quarantine pass isn't assigned to me. 

    Did you know how confusing and difficult it is to shop for fresh food online? It is like, stalking every bit of store you can find, continuously asking for either their delivery fee or minimum fee and other availability. 

    The first one we had ordered, did not even disclose the minimum fee, and did not answer my follow-up texts for three days! 

    I was already experiencing hypoglycemia and hypertension already that I feel its best they will form a Dragon Ball Fusion and I do not even know what to name it, maybe, Glytension?

    We canceled the order and I went to search for another delivery. I then thought maybe a market near me would be the best. Waltermart is a no-no as they are always booked and their minimum is 2000.

    I even got as far as the Cagayan De Oro market by mistake and apologizingly embarrassed.

    Then, I remembered the one that was in the news and Quezon City Government page, the Visayas Avenue Market. Gladly, when I've searched I found their pdf list and order form immediately.

    I also noticed they indicated they accept a request if the item is not on the list. It's exactly what I was looking for since I need to replenish Tweety's dog food supply.

    I waited for an hour and there was no follow-up so I texted them immediately, they replied to confirm and there I added a few more orders for meat products and Tweety's Dog food.

    Later on, we received a call to confirm the location and payment details. While I was just sending the payment, the dogs barked and there it was the food has been delivered!

    In just three hours it arrived after the order has been placed, I haven't even finished sending the confirmation of the payment!



    Chihuahua tweety fresh market vegetables

    We were wide-eyed already with the fast delivery but our jaws dropped when we saw the quality. We thought they'd just give us unbranded oil, but they gave us Golden Fiesta. The vegetable color is vibrant. The meat is where we were most impressed, it was a good bright red color. An excellent sign of guaranteed freshness.

    We bought Squash, onions, garlic, flour, cornstarch, pork chops, liempo, kangkong (water spinach), Calamansi, potatoes, okra, munggo, dog food (pedigree). Total of 1,616. The minimum is 1000. The delivery fee though indicates 80 pesos only but it says we were charged 140. I think maybe it is because of the request?

    We packed everything up on organized containers and place some on the freezer for longer shelf life. 

    At dinner, we were definitely excited about cooking. I requested my favorite Sinigang Dish, pork, and water spinach. I forgot to request for something to make it sour, but we have mixed for Sinigang na Bayabas and that will do. I remember afterward I can actually use the new Calamansi pack, maybe I will do that later on.

    On the next day, we had another meal which is Sauteed Pork with Gata, also delish!

    One of our potatoes had buds on it already, hihi~ it's fine since we plan to have it planted for new produce.

    Tweety now is also a happy dog as she found her new supply, but it's back-up dog food, so that will wait for later.

    It took me quite some time researching which one would be able to deliver to us and this was even more than what we expected. Although, as much as we want to keep on ordering there. I still have more things I need to buy that are all available in one place and how I wish that it would be safe to go outside again. As for a busy freelancer like me, our only leisure time is to go to the market for a good walk.

    Oh yes, I admit~ I keep on getting confused about the Celebrations and Events, I thought that my Google Calendar would even give me a hint~ except that it didn't. I just found out later while scrolling the Facebook newsfeed and an ad popped out, "Give a gift for your Mother on Mother's day" and I quickly stood up from my desk and hurriedly checked my laptop, "Oh God, when is Mother's day?"

    So Mother's day is just a few days and what's worse, we're quarantined at home!

    Mother's day gift gift guide Mother The Spark's Bistro

    Here I was checking on every coupon site that can offer a great deal, but most I've seen would require you to go out, which is dangerous at the time of Pandemic, right?

    I even looked out for a Photobook, as I was thinking it would best to give her something of a memory, but the shipping takes 7 days! I don't have 7 days to wait! Plus, again. It's a quarantine period. I can't go out!

    I was stuck in a loophole and later on, I got tired in the loophole of search, since it was like 3 am in the morning, I was definitely exhausted only researching what I can give to my mom. 

    For now, I will retire for the evening...I said to myself.

    Okay, I surrender for now~ but of course, that's one less day and the clock is ticking.

    Every moment I spent will soon be another day less.

    I slept for a few hours, and gladly when I woke up, I felt refreshed and ready to take on another day. 

    This time I've played on search keywords and scrolled again through endless Mother's Day Ideas. Most of them offer you to buy.  Yeah, you've got to be kidding, there's no way that's arriving on time!


    So I checked forums, it seems that Moms love it more when you give them something that supports their passion, especially those that they focus more on or they hope to do or spending most of their time.

    If you're quite the observer, it's when you're mom makes them motivated, ones that are keeping their sparkles in their eyes.

    My mom has two things she loves most, 

    Her garden and another is her life aspiration of becoming a writer.

    I remember that Mom could not get her hands on some gardening tools because of the quarantine, however, we have a runner in the house who do shopping in the local grocery store, and I remember that they have a mini gardening section there. 

    There I thought to myself, "I was thinking way too far", the answer is just easier this time because people cannot go out of their houses, most of the perfect gifts are simpler because the things that they would not only want are those that support their need! Especially on these times...

    Our runner suggested to also buy cake, although I am not sure if he would be able to acquire some especially that a Special Holiday is coming near.

    I also think that giving her an ebook app about gardening or a funny short story niche or a good magazine subscription would be the best in combination with the Gardening tools and the cake. Otherwise, if the cake is not possible, I already have some flour here and I could whip up a simple cake in the kitchen, she would appreciate it more if we keep low in the sugar part, gladly the small weighing scale for food arrived a week ago and I can keep watch on the measurements if needed. 


    I hope this would turn out well~ cross fingers* but if you find yourself stuck with ideas on what to gift your mom or wife this Quarantine period, let me know, and let's brainstorm on the last-minute gift for her. 

    You can write to me in the comments or contact through my contacts page.

    new blogger interface 2020 May

    We've just seen the newest blogger interface and there are mixed reactions about it. 





     

    The first roll-out of the newest blogger interface started with their stats and Homepage. This May 2020 they updated their interface for the POSTS tab. When creating a new blog post, a brand new modern interface is seen. All the options of the classic version are here, I was just confused at finding the HTML tab, only to find it beside the title with the opposite arrows. The best thing I like most is the preview which lets me have a sneak peek of my drafted post faster than the older version. I love the old look but I will be using the modern version because I've always hoped to have an option for a more user-friendly blogger interface. 

    I also like how easy it is to select the labels that will be used for the post. The mobile version gives you a compact and user-friendly interface for smartphones. 

    When I inserted photos, the loading time is much faster than it was before, options to immediately choose from Google Photos definitely made everything much easier to upload from freshly taken captures through my phone. 

    new Writing post for blogger interface


    Anyway, if you are not a fan of the new design and feel that the nostalgia of the classic interface is your friend. There's a link at the lower-left portion of the blogger homepage interface called " Back to Classic Blogger" to switch back to the older version. 

    If you have difficulties in the new version would you like to tell me? What do you think of this fresh new change?

    . Thursday, April 16, 2020 .




    Early January before COVID-19 was announced as Pandemics, several of my friends who traveled and gone abroad or on frontline duty shared their stories on how they survived, even back then there were no test kits yet and could not prove that it is the disease itself.

    Most of them did not receive treatment as they were only regarded as regular flu and was just sent home, some others were only regarded as PUM and were as well sent home They've shared with me how they were able to make it through and recovered without confinement or intubation.

    They've experienced these symptoms, the only difference is the time time of onset of symptoms and severity:

    Vomiting
    Diarrhea
    Coughing
    Fever
    Chills
    Body Aches

    COMPREHENSIVE EXPLANATIONS on explainitmedicine

    These on top with the most dangerous symptom: DIFFICULTY OF BREATHING later on.

    So, here's what they did:

    1. Vomiting and Diarrhea

    Some of the first unbearable symptoms most of my friends felt, they focused on REHYDRATION and ELECTROLYTE replenishment
    Solution:


    a. Rehydration drinks, Isotonic drinks used for sports
    b. For vomiting, salted biscuits, they actually ate corn chips, any chips as long as its not oily and nuts.

    2. Coughing

    The experienced a lot of coughing, which they use the following:


    a. Menthol candies or throat anti-irritants
    b. Vicks or alcamphor spread in the neck (skin)

    c. Honey, calamansi ginger tea

    3. Difficulty of Breathing

     Solution:



    A. Vicks or alcamphor


    B. Hot bath for vasodilation  ( up to 8 times hot showers or bath)

    Yes, the my friends almost became mermaids staying on hot showers, it helps a lot to breathe because of the warmth from the water, however, they did mention to always put a cold compress on the head every time on the hot bath to avoid heatstroke.


    C. Vapor steam or 'Suob'

    This helped my friends to breathe better because of the warm vapor.





    4. Fever

    My friends experienced above 38 degrees celsius fever and each time they feel that a fever a starting they try their best to lower it down and prevent the body temperature to go higher.

    Solution:


    A. Ice packs on the forehead or towel that was dipped on ice and water even while on a hot bath.

    5. Chills and body aches

    While on a hot bath, it was mentioned that both body aches were relieved because of the warmth and since its the water is warmth thus chills are addressed as well.

    Warning: Always have ice compress on your forehead while having a warm bath to prevent heatstroke.

    a. Hot bath




    Of course, it does not mean you that you should not have your self checked, it is important that you do have yourself for a check-up, my friends have themselves monitored all the time until such time they turn negative and a test kit arrived, the good news with that is they lived without going intensive treatment, and it's not because of their strong immune system, actually, most of them even have underlying diseases like hypertension, diabetes and asthma and other even get exposed from nosocomial diseases. Since there is no cure yet, they advised focusing on not only increasing the immune system but also alleviate and focus on the symptoms felt to avoid certain shock or death.

    . Wednesday, April 08, 2020 .



    Due to covid, our guest wanted to cancel her reservation, I've advised her to cancel it on the day she will check-out but instead, she altered the reservation, means she would check-out early on.

    I accepted the changes to this reservation which incurred charges on my account.

    That's where the fault was made. I should not have let the changes happen and let her cancel the reservation instead.


    Later, an announcement was made by Airbnb that they will issue full refund to the guest who cancelled and hosts get no penalty and additional 25% from the calamity extenuating circumstances.

    It is a calamity for us, since we got charged for the cancellation. When I was asking if there's any help we can have for hosts, unfortunately since the changes in the checkout date were done, we wont benefit from the calamity insurance.

    This lesson is a big lesson to me. We still need to pay for the rest of the cancelled reservations and I feel crying, however, I could not disclose this to mom as she is already stressed out with the situation, she needs the funds but all I can do is to just stare blankly on this calamity that befall us.

    Update:

    Besides the charges from Airbnb cancellations, Meralco (the electricity company) charged us even though we do not have a guest. I'm crying.
