NuffnangX

I had mention NuffnangX in a previous post but now I got somewhat of a handle how to use it, I want to encourage more Americans (and everyone in the western world) to take advantage of it and push it to be a very used app.
For bloggers, NuffnangX conversations is something they've seen before. So they aren't going to try and put it on their blogs. But they are missing the most important point. The more money Netcentric brings in, the more they will expand. I believe if Netcentric is able to expand all their business dealings it would revolutionize blogging in the western world. Think about it. The top 15 blogs in the U.S are micro-blogs, tech, celeb gossip, and d.i.y. After that tumblr swipes up the game of empty seats. Lifestyle, Fashion, and Make-up blogs are hardly acknowledge anymore. So for all those long-form blogs, you might see that you aren't making any money, your stats are going down, etc etc. If Nuffnang and Project Alpha came to the U.S, the American dream would come alive for bloggers. Its the quick route to instant fame and riches. #Justsaying. The app for blogs is really good anyway and easier then trying to add the facebook plugin on your blog (which I extremely struggled with in the past).
For blog readers this is free gold. You now have an app for your phone and tablet that lets you simplify and seamlessly read blogs without hassle portably  Imagine trying to read Xiaxue's blog from your phone's browser? It takes forever to load! Nuffnangx loads it in 5 seconds. You can forget about your tumblr app to because Nuffnangx lets you read both traditional blogs and tumblr in one app. #mindblown. Annnnd if you support Nuffnangx, you also support the building up the media industry and creates more jobs (which is super important in the U.S since unemployment has been stagnantly high for years now).

Co-Founder Timothy Tiah explains NuffnangX way better O.o

Fashion Inspo

So right now, I'm focusing on fixing up my blog so bare with me. I'm trying to work with nuffnangx which is a bit frustrating  It doesn't want to work on neither my phone or tablet and the comment app that was supposed to load on this blog isn't working. -__-" but I am a big overall supporter of nuffnang. I've been eyeing for a day that it'll one day be in the U.S.  Then my layout probably very cumbersome for people who don't have fast processors (I experienced it firsthand on my netbook). So many little things to work out.

I wanted to post this a while ago, but you already know the girls who go Tokyo Girl's Collection inspire me a lot more then actual models. Since I'm always going out and shopping for a new clothes (for super cheap), I took a look at these pics before I went black friday shopping.



Picture credits to Tokyofashion.com I did buy a lot on black friday. Of course we all know, appearal shopping on black friday is super tough. Because you don't want to buy anything that isn't at least 50-70% off. Clothes are going to be on sale anyway after christmas, so you don't want to buy any rip off on the black friday hypes. That being said, sweaters, leather clothing, and other must haves for this season were NOT on sale. Sad for me, because that stuff was what I really wanted. However wardrobe basics were on sale. At Forever 21 clearance items even got an extra 50% off. So most of my $5-$8 skirts became $2-$4 once I got to the cash register. CRAZY right.  So I did find a lot of good buys. But the better deals are online for stores like Forever 21. I am paitently waiting for Monday's free shipping deals 0.o


Batman signia on a leapord pullover? *Dies in heaven*









Yea, sweaters like those were definitely not on sale -__-"





 Outfit I want most.... Not on sale on Black Friday at all.


EDIT: NuffnangX conversations started working after I made this post....SO, I'll post a entry more about NuffnangX tomorrow :)

Vampire Knight

So I'm (codename: Angel) and I'm addicted to manga and comics.

"Hi Angel."

I've been thinking I'll unload all my fangirling here. Trying to think of a nice name for it. Like Angel's Reads, Useless Thoughts, Angel's Book Club. Whatever. Not so much important.

According to mangaupdates.com I've read over 90 mangas and I'm in the process of reading 100... Idk how accurate that is because I have a ton of mangas that I've lost interest in or no longer being scanlated.

My current obssession right now is Vampire Knight. Omg, it's awesome. I've been following since the beginning and now it's about to end. *sad face*

For those of you who don't know about Vampire Knight here a summary from wikipedia.
 Yuki's earliest memory is of a stormy night in winter, where she was attacked by a vampire... And then rescued by another. Now 10 years later, Yuki Cross, the adopted daughter of the headmaster of Cross Academy, Kaien Cross, has grown up and become a guardian of the vampire race, protecting her childhood crush, Kaname, from discovery as he leads a group of vampires at the elite boarding school. But also at her side is Zero Kiryu, a childhood friend whose hatred for the creatures that destroyed everything he held dear leaves him determined never to trust them. This coexisting arrangement seems all well and good, but have the vampires truly renounced their murderous ways, or is there a darker truth behind their actions? Because in this world of secrets, nothing is as it seems. And the price of misplaced trust may even be worse than death. 
 It actually develops very well and this is without a doubt the best work Hino Matsuri has ever wrote (and I've read all her mangas).

Vampire Knight vs, Twilight

A lot of Twilight-haters always are the first people who are against this manga because people tend to relate this with the Twilight Saga. It does have their similarities at first because they are both written in a typical shoujo format --->Two guys who want one girl. But I can assure you, Vampire Knight is so much better and it doesn't have any awkward acting lol. The main herorine in Vampire Knight (Yuuki) unlike Bella (from Twilight) is a very strong headed character. She doesn't make ridculously stupid decisions (Yuuki decisions can be stupid, but they are often very well thought out) and she has some type of defense against vampires. Also the lead vampire (Kaname in VK) isn't as creepy as Edward (twilight). I also want to add, as the stories go on the plots get significantly different. Twilight is more realistic to teens, I guess. Whereas Vampire Knight is full of dark and twisted romanticsm. Also writing technique for Vampire Knight is on a whole different level. Every chapter has symbolism, foreshadowing, and suspense. Every chapter I keep screaming NOOO when Matsuri Hino throws another curve ball. Twilight's plot is very straight forward and lack much use of literary devices.

Symbolism in Vampire Knight:
Warning Spoilers below. I can't explain them very well but I want to put these open to discussion.


  • Masks.
  • White and Black Uniforms
  • The length of Yuki's hair
  • Heels
  • Artemis (moon goddess)
  • The name Yuki (snow/ princess)
  • Roses
I can't really explain masks well  but I've noticed that they have a meaning. Ichiru wears a mask, the masquerade ball, the mask falling off Zero's face.  Little things.
I did take a lot of notice about the black and white uniforms. Notice this photo above? This was the promo art for Vampire Knight before it's actual release. I always wondered why did Hino draw them all in white when Yuki and Zero should be wearing black. This is actually foreshadowing future events. That they all turn into vampires O.o. Surprising enough, Zero is the only one who never actually wore a white uniform. He might in the future. Another big question is why Yuki and Kaname are on the same side of the fence while the rest are not. Probably a nod to their blood ties.

Yuki's hair represents who she belongs to. When her hair is long, she belongs to Kaname. When her hair is short, she belongs to Zero.
I guess heels and artemis are both a given because they are both explained in the book. Yuuki's name is actually a symbol itself. It could mean snow or princess. Yuki was found in the middle of snowy field by Kaname. and later she is the Princess of the Kuran House. Nice play on words, Hino.
The only symbolism I can't come to understand is Roses. THEY ARE EVERYWHERE. Zero's tattoo, Yuuki's bracelet, Kaname's gift to Yuki, Kaname wilters a rose in the first chapter, Ichiru slashes the rose on Zero's jacket. I can't make sense of it.

Sighhhh enough "reading to deep into it". Here's some pretty art.

 Another mask! I never noticed it before.

 I spy three roses in this picture!

Insta-Dump

It's a real shock that my viewership was so high and now it dropped so low...again... It's really my fault. I stopped blogging. I rejoined the real world, full of working people with such busy lives that taking the time to write a couple of sentances every other day has become a hassle. Then homework just adds onto that stress. FML to the max and all the homework I've managed to not do. Actually, I don't even recall the last time I did homework at home. When I get home, I read some manga and some blogs then go to sleep. Then I wake up super early so I can twitter stalk some singaporean bloggers. I come to realize that I have a boring life... Well not really, I just don't get to share my life much since I don't own a camera -___-". Black Friday should change that.

So to bounce back into the blogger scene I'm going to dump some photos here from my instagram and facebook.

#Disneyworld: I have a ton of photos from Disney that I have yet to edit. But I made a collage of the most memorable moments for me. Going to Disney was a great experience and it was honestly a very beautiful place.


#Permitphotoday. I used my sister camera for this. The quality was too high to add any filters onto this LOL. But I think photowonder lowers the quality anyway.

Catching Up

Sorry that I've been away for so long. I've been going through the motions of work and school that I haven't got a chance to blog >.<. I promise that I'll be a better blogger. I'm drafting up several posts right now so I can keep that promise. I've been doing too much and I'm trying to transition some stuff out of my life.As a senior in high school this is the busiest time of my life. I'm trying to get ready for college and do well in the college classes that I'm currently taking. Next semester I will only have two classes so I'll have all the free time to enjoy life a little.  So for today I'll post two videos of me spinning an airblade for the first time. Within the next 3 days I'll post about my trip to DisneyCat
