    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



    This year I wanted to make a change and I decided to plan it very early as in to the literal start of the year. A dream or a goal board is my answer to organize an inspirational visual plan. Keeping a goal and rewarding self is one of the essential part of my life, once I have a clear path of what I wanted to do and achieve it, the feeling of fulfillment echoes, maybe when I look back at my retirement days and smile upon it. My goals I've kept on my dream Board are minimalistic as four pictures, in it, I will already be reminded of what are the list of plans I want to attain in the span of a year. The pictures by the way are only references I took from the internet, they're not mine.


    1. A picture of a bed with pastel tone sheets.

    It's not much different from what I am using today, since I use the pastel pink conforter on my bed, white pillows, but I'd like to add a bit of pastel gray color scheme this time. I'm adding them to my windows, I will be sewing them if I didn't find a suitable one for me. The interiors can't be seen there but I've also used this picture to remind me of my latest interior craze for contemporary style, meaw liked low lying bed, so I feel japanese style suits it. Check the picture of attachment for inspiration.
    I am planning to paint the walls gray. The room is just too bright that I could not sleep if I am on graveyard shift. Lastly, the project on the floor seems left behind, I'd like to push in to deadline this year.

    Why am I prioritizing the bed?

    I spend like most time there,  I even wrote this while lying down at bed, yeah so I spend most activities there I'd rather make it my place of sanctuary. We we're hesitant to get a platform bed since I use the space sometimes for my studio, but I found a good place to set-up my studio, so I think thats not going to be a problem anymore.

    2. Cute anime girl in pink hair

    This drawing will remind me of many things, my fashion goals, my cosplay goals, my hair goals and my creative manga goals.
    It's probably not new to you how much I love pastels and kawaii clothes, so I plan to make more and make cute cosplays too. Oh, my hair goals, actually, I have to fulfill my collaborations for hair that takes years already. I must finish them now, I am sponsored with not only for hair coloring but also for maintenance and treatment, but since I don't do the maintenance, my hair is in trouble, I can't spoil anymore time, I need to finish it now and follow the maintenance. Sheesh.



    3. A Pilipinas stamp

    Yes, I found that I must focus more on my travel niche part of my blog and vlog.Although the stamp is usually used for delivering mail, but nowadays its used as a good adornment for travel journals. So, its the perfect symbol of my travel goals.

     I have been waiting to and could not fulfill them since I am preoccupied with many things, this year though I'll be a traveler, not a tourist. I'll slowly learn the culture and appreciate the beauty on my own time. I will not be there to just snap a selfie on that place but be able to truly connect with its history or beauty.


    4. Do epic shit

    Yes, with all of these combined I have to keep in mind that with everything I do, I must do it with quality. If speed is a must, I should master both quality and speed.

    This year I vow to do another epic, its been 3-4 years since my last epic work has launched, it's time to make another and there's no stopping, just fulfilling.

    They're at it again. The connection became sluggish and the system moves on its own with unexplained errors. They're definitely at it again. This scenario is the same, whenever hackers try to do what they're good at 'hack'. Mostly they would have my browser's activities and desk activities, then from my searches at most, they would have a new trendsetting ideas. It's not new to me, they've been doing this, the best part is that they would garner credits and profit from it. I follow several creators, like Auraqualic to name a few, and being original does have what they call the greatest flattery of all 'copycat' but the heartaches the creators feel when the creations they made are used against them is shattering.

    A few months back, I made geek radio. I made it because I've seen creator's heart crushed by these people. I wanted the radio to serve as inspiration to ignite that passion that these people had put out. I know the feeling and now I've felt it more than ever. I wish that this reached out to the creators feeling the same and is battling it out. We're he're and we feel the same.

    I dont credit this as mine, but my searches about an 'ear cuff and tondo' has been on my history years and months back. It is a good trendsetting keywords that I saw became a world winner. People may have a hard time believing especially for some small time blogger like me to say it, but it happens. I teared upon watching one earrings designer had told her story of her very own copycat. She had a hard time coping up with it and it almost feels like you lost a part of your life with it. I usually shrug this off, but this time I could no longer ignore. There are only few creators in this world and their dreams are being crushed, only a few understand the value of creators and many misunderstood them. 

    My very own idol, I looked up to has lied low. She's been through a lot when she became a sensation, to the point it shattered her life, but all she did was just to share her masterpieces on her page, yet the world became cruel to her and now they no longer speak of her name moreover curse her for the monstrosity of her works of art. Because of this I never see her share her works freely anymore, which I wish and adore so much, she inspires me and even when I reach out to her to encourage her, the pain she felt had affected her, how I miss her usually carefree works and now its gone.

    I am angered by these people a lot, not only were they only taking and crediting themselves but they even kill the original creators dreams. I asked one co-creator of mine, how they're able to make it through this a double edge curse and blessing, and I feel that there really is no solution nor remedy with this, yet as long as you're breathing, you can always try to fulfill your dreams. This is not new news, like chanel said ' if you want to be original, get ready to be copied'

    Its inevitable, but just keep on moving forward, the most important of all is you fulfill them, doesnt matter if they even get greater credits from it, what matters is that your dreams are fulfilled because thats some accomplishment you can take with you in next eternal life.

    Always remember,

    Look at your path, it doesn't matter if they follow you. You lead it. Enjoy the moment and never sway.

    Cool cold season finally hit Q.C and It's a bit late than expected, a few days ago I was a busy bee for doing cosplay and I'm happy the weather was cold because I didn't sweat like a pig trying on the costumes, I still had to turn the air con for a while when I had to shift back to a warmer costume. My inspirations always hit me during cold season, maybe because since the temperature invites a great thinking atmosphere. I would often wonder what I will prioritize, maybe read a book? Study a new program? Make a new manga? Do cosplay crafting? There's so much I want to do and I'm going to get sad if the cold season gets over quickly. I looked over my closet and noticed that every wear ready are for summer. Well, it's always summer in the Philippines that's why, but I wonder it would ve be nice to wear my fashion coats, yet I feel very shy to wear them, many people would probably stare that I wear it.
    It's not custom in the Philippines to wear a coat, a cardigan is fine but not coats, and here I am with a collection of coats catching dust in my closet, I wear them on special formal occasions instead. This december, I really have the urge to wear them but I might not be able to.

    Last year's countdown to Christmas was my busiest time when we had joined numerous blogging gigs and parties. It was a downpour of blessings, but this year, its definitely a surprise in having cosplays as demand, wherein it was last year's november demand. I am quite confused but I feel that it wasnt so bad as it might be a great preparation for next year and I'm excited!

    Lately, I've been selling and purging several items on my closet. I do this yearly when I can but I am hands down, gave up to a lot of stuff in my closet I can't purge them all. I might be spending a few more months to do it.

    I have this craze of watching people do their journals and listening to cute cafe music, i usually pair it with my favorite hot tea or choco and this makes me feel calm, warm, satisfied and happy. What surprise was when I tried ovaltine cookies, i found in a shelf alone in supermarket and was astonished with the sweet taste.


    The news had said that COD is open again, COD means Christmas on display, its a moving mannequin situated near Araneta Center and it bought the best Childhood memories of Filipino child back then. I wanted to go there, bring my mom, but I figure out that she might have a hard time to go because of the crowd and traffic, she is after all not in good shape due to age, but how I wish to relieve the past of visiting there with her.

    It's been quiet in the neighborhood, our dogs and hedgehog had gone hibernation and I feel that I might go on hibernation too as the chilly weather is inviting for a whole day at bed. There isn't much to think about since we have loads of ham for the festive season coming from giveaways and mom just questioningly bought more which we don't understand why. I would be looking forward to having a hot coco on our tea sets soon. Mom is the real deal lolita, since she was a young girl, she would be dressing in one cute lolita dresses and her collection of tea sets are too many to count, her tradition to use them for Christmas became unique 'Christmas feel', I would be dressed in lolita but I keep it simple so its easy to move around. I'm happy that we're able to be together, last two years ago I was stuck at work since the whole team are assigned to spend the christmas and new year, we were unlucky at that time, but the next years I prefer to spend it with mom, I want to treasure each holiday with her even when she's grumpy all the time.

    Speaking of grumpy, my hedgie, ero might get a bath soon but he doesnt seem to want one as he entered the hibernation mode.

    I am overjoyed with the latest addition to my kitchen collection and what's more is that I got them in a bargain price of only P10.00 each. I took all of whats on the shelf, we're planning to do a feast this holiday.


    Speaking of which, I found this page preciousplastics on facebook and I am very much happy that a way to recycle plastics to make new products are on now on the market, they have all the instructions if you want to build a machine. I wish we can partake in this soon.

    My binge on watching serene korean simple life videos made me want their 'cafe' like interiors. It's not far from what we have at home but needs a bit of touch and it has potential.

    When my blog is still a toddler, I've made a vow to myself that the very first sponsored experience of dining in an unlimited Yakiniku restaurant will be given a gift of my appreciation.

    That gift is to complete a look in traditional Japanese fashion, a kimono. The dream finally came true, although we made a few modifications to the kimono, such as made the lower part shorter so it'll be easier to mobilize.


    Believe it or not I am also wearing sneakers for extra comfort. For my hair though it's my DIY ponytail that suppose to be in uploaded soon in my you tube page and my favorite gold ribbon.


    And finally, all dreams came true for last December 3, 2018 Tuesday at Sct. Fernandez Tomas Morato, we visited Yoshi Meatsu branch and had a once- in a lifetime experience on a korean japanese unlimited restaurant.


    We proceeded upstairs and you'll be able to see a huge display of Japanese snacks or katana displays.

    Food on table:

    G1- G2 Sliced beef Yakiniku, G3 Spicy Beef Yakiniku, R4 Lettuce, G4 Sliced US fatty beef Yakiniku, H1 Herbed Pork


    The staff kindly prepared the table for us and we were given seats upstairs, the restaurant has welcoming warmth feel and air is filled with grilled meat all over, it is not smoky which I thought will, but because of the installed individual exhaust which seems to suck in all the smoke emanating from the charcoal grill.

    I love how the staff laid out the table setting of Stainless steel chopsticks and rectangular plates, then sauce servings per side, makes it easy to access everything you need.

    On my floral white and blue modified kimono, I've joined in the 2pm servings of Tempura, Grade 1-2 Yakiniku at first.




    It was drenching hot outside so I started with the glass bottle of chilled apple tea, the sourness and apple flavor slides on my throat, and did I just mentioned the aesthetic glass it comes, each bottle costs P138.00 and its a treat to take it home for a eco-friendly totally stylish swap to plastic bottles. Although, the bottles are not part of the unlimited deal and sold separately, I would have a pretty cool reason to go back here.

    Since it was my first time, I am blessed to the fullest in being company with non other than foodie specialist of bvloggers.com, he introduced to me how I do a good sequence and to the best combinations of the food.

    The price is 2 Plates at a time
    Promo Price P549
    Leftover fee 899

    We added Sakana Tofu, light and Tofu~
    Wiener Sausage

    Chicken liver

    The juicy yakiniku meat just melts in my palate, there were three sauce to pair them with but I avoided the spicy one, can't have that due to my stomach condition, if you've read my medical blog you'll know what I mean. I thought everything was going to be spicy, my fear and anxiety of trying always gets on the way, but my bestfriend, on our small talks l, reassured me that I should try one and I will have a choice not to have the spicy sauce.

    Korean and Japanese Sochu
    I had a sip of both korean and japanese Sochu and my whole body felt really warm on just first sip which I regret since I am wearing triple linens.

    Herbed Steak
    Herbed steak being cooked as to per my request of "well done", took me one challenging bite but it was worth it, the thickness of the meat will not disappoint if you're looking to find something that would satisfy your hunger.

    Japanese treats such as california maki is included on the side. Yum Yum! Both the bland rice and a bit of sour salty stuffing rubbles in my mouth delightfully.

    Striking a pose while the meat sizzles, table top grilling does give you a lot of bonding time with your family, friends or special someone, its the perfect sit, chill and eat experience on staying updated with them and with toast of drinks, this is a great way to reward and celebrate for a job well done.

    The best treat is the cheese, their grill has special side where you can place the cheese and let it grill too, the salty taste and savoury meat combined makes delectable palate experience.


    On the table Cheese Roll, Kyuri salad, Kani Salad. We were also served Miso soup at the end.
    Miso Soup
    The miso soup is my very first try, people tell me that it tastes sour like sinigang, its none like sinigang for me, theres only faint sourness, its aromatic but never overpowering.

    Meeting new friends and sharing the bountiful meal is ❤. We met with Mr. Ross and other bloggers and interviewed Ms. Ella, thankfully welcomed us warmly on this day.

    At the time of our grill, amazingly caught my attention is when they played anime music videos such as the Hunter X Hunter, you guys know how I'm a big fan of this anime. Of course, my love for kpop and kdramas will always be there too, I got all excited and hyped up to blog because of the songs.

    I went to peak downstairs at the serving area and saw their rows and columns of prepared dishes picked up to be served. I wanted to lend a hand to serve. Hehehehe

    The cashier is right beside this serving station and welcomes you once door is opened.

    Facilities such as a small comfort room and wash area are located on the 2nd floor. So, if you need to hold your lettuce, you don't need to worry, they have good soap, hehehe

    If you'll need to order more, there's a touch screen in every table where you may order them.


    The staff are going up and the stairs all the time, so if you need something they are there to assist.

    We had such an amazing time and we made videos for a quick round up, which you may check on my you tube page once uploaded.

    I had fun with sir Ross on making a short video in Japanese language although my voice isnt too audible due to the noise in the background. You may see some videos available in his facebook wazzup pilipinas page. I laughed when I saw my self on some videos and pictures. seemingly trying to focus on engulfing meat hehehe.

    I haven't tried their premium offers yet, but I can see from their menu that it'll be worth it, when you get to dine it, maybe try their premium deals to see the difference.
