One Piece Chapter 692 Review

 This week's One Piece is back with its epicness and excitement. Baby 5 and Buffalo from Doflamingo's crew finally made their appearance on Punk Hazard. I bet that was something many fans were anticipating since according to my blog info tracker, many people had googled up Baby 5. Yes, your very dangerous yet sexy French maid. I love her character design. A nice change from your usual damsel in distress. 

This is it. The final blow to Ceasar. We can all sense it just by looking at Ceasar's sobbing face... which is highly unattractive, I pity the guy. Momo the dragon is all gaping and cute here. *hug*

 When I saw the Den Den Mushi watching Luffy, I was like "Oh no... noooo, someone saw Luffy's awesome!" I thought it would be Joker or something but dayum... I didn't expect all of Ceasar's clients saw his power. I hope it won't put Luffy at a disadvantage later on. They know the extend of his power... I don't like that feeling. Luffy, you are going to kick all their asses, right? 

Big Mum's people saw Luffy's power. Noooo! But I think the Straw Hat and Big Mum will come to a mutual agreement at the end. Why? Remember Thriller Bark? They helped Lola the pink zombie hippo girl (who was in love with Absalom) to get back her shadow. In return, she gave Nami a Vi-card that she said will be useful in the New World and that they should go and find her Mama. I'm 99.9% sure she was referring to Big Mum. So maybe the fight with Big Mum won't be as too much of a disaster, I hope. 

KILLER! Oh, I'm so happy to see him. I also expected to see Eustass Captain Kid. Where was he? NOOOOO! I am so disappointed. He needs more screen time. 

The Straw Hats are reuniting. I feel happy. So that means the arc is reaching an end. Either they fight a common foe (Doflamingo) or it's time to leave Punk Hazard.

LOL Smoker, why you ask that? It's awfully cute. Ok, ignore this fangirl.

Angry Trafalgar Law is not amused by lazy Luffy. He is so cute when he is angry (I sound like those sadist dominatrix with a whip). Luffy's annoyed face makes me smile. They will make a good alliance. Strict and serious Trafalgar Law and goofy and playful Straw Hats. 

And behold, the gorgeous goddess of One Piece, Baby 5 enters the battlefield. I think she is absolutely beautiful. As beautiful as Boa Hancock (I'm not a fan of Shirahoshi... she is too whimpy and pathetic). Look at those slender legs. She is so cool! I like her power too. Sounds really strong. 

So we finally understand why Baby 5 wants to kill Doflamingo/Joker. Because Doflamingo killed her 8 'fiances'. Look at her teary face. It's hilarious once you realize why she is even crying to begin with. 
As for Buffalo... to be honest, he scared the crap out of me. He looks... so weird. *shudder*

 Baby 5 has kinks. Yes, she does. She is in love with men who need her. NEED. Her blush is adorable. I think she is a wonderful character with her own unique personality. Though... she really needs to filter out her potential fiances much better. Just by looking at her previous fiance makes me gag.

 Oddly enough, Baby 5 holding the bazooka on her shoulder reminds me of Sanji in Strong World. They look alike... must be the hair or something. Again, I love her pose. Wicked and Rock On!

OMG OMG OMG DOFLAMINGO~ DOFFY~ 
He is so awesome even just sitting and shouting at a snail. What does he want with Ceasar? I don't understand. So Ceasar can make him a lot of SADs, that's why he needs Ceasar... but capture... the word 'capture' makes it sound like Ceasar wasn't really his ally. Maybe it's the translation error. So anyhow, Doflamingo ordered Baby 5 and Buffalo to capture Ceasar and return to Dressrosa. Does that mean they are not going to fight the Straw Hats? I waited so long for them to fight. Oda-sensei, you can't do that to us fans! *fuming*

Oh... so they are going to fight after all. Franky will fight BOTH of them? That sounds too much. I'm not sure if he can handle them both. Maybe he can. He is a weapon robot. He is heavy so he won't get blown away from rotation-wind-whip. Maybe... we will see next week. I really want Trafalgar Law to interrupt the fight and kidnap Ceasar right in front of Doflamingo's nose. That would be a sweet defeat and a massive OWNNNNNage~ please let that happen, Oda-sensei. Who do you think will get Ceasar? Doflamingo or Trafalgar Law?

One Piece Chapter 691 Review

This week One Piece is back to more talking and less action. Well, there had a massive action fight last chapter so we will let the pace to slow down a little. So to summarize this chapter real quick, Law had openly challenged Doflamingo by cutting down Vergo and the Sad production. Ceasar made his subordinates open the air vent so that Shinokuni can enter. Many people died. Luffy is not amused at all.
Zoro carries Tashigi over his shoulder... such a gentleman but seriously, Tashigi has a big butt. LOLOL
Plus he got lost. That's so Zoro-ish and cute. 

 Sanji is jealous. Hahaha. Love Nami's "Zoro! Reverse! Reverse!"

 I hope the top dialogues are said by Vergo. I can't imagine Trafalgar Law saying "Shit. How am I going to eat tomorrow's breakfast." With Law's power, Vergo is dismembered. You see his... floating head talking to Law. Seriously, Law and Smoker look so badass in this scene. 

 Oooh, Joker's past. So Doflamingo has an epic reason as to how he ended up who he is today. Interesting. Again, Doflamingo gotta be the most mysterious character in One Piece. I get that feeling. He is all active and badass yet he is the one we know the least about. Remember Doflamingo has connection to people higher up the marine (higher than Sengoku)? When he defeated Moria, he mentioned it. So much mystery. I was hoping Vergo will elaborate more. But then Smoker doesn't seem keen to explain and Law sliced Vergo in halves again. 

 So badass this pic. Smoker walking away all Arnold Schwarzeneggar (I can't be the only one who think they look alike, right?) Law looks so cute *fangirling hard here* Anyway, I think Law is giving Vergo a chance to escape. He warned him that the room is going to explode. So that means... something right? Maybe Baby 5 and Buffalo will come to his rescue. Soooo maybe Vergo won't be as dead as Monet. 

 Meanwhile, Ceasar's subordinates opened the air vent and allowed Shinokuni to enter the building and killed a bunch of people. I got annoyed when they opened it. Ceasar already said they don't mean anything to them yet they still thought it was a joke. Do you think Ceasar is the type to joke around? Seriously! I know they are all in debt and yada yada... but... augh... *facepalm*

Ceasar is powering up! He is ... huuuuuugeee O.O 

 OH! When I see that look on Luffy's face... ya gonna get it hard, Ceasar. Hide yo wife, hide yo kids, Luffy is turning BAMF!

 Usopp telling Ceasar's men how awesome and stubborn Luffy is. Such beautiful friendship they shared. What he said is ... touching *wipe tears* 

LOLOLOL is Ceasar crying? I bet he is. Luffy looks really, really pissed off. Aw man, Ceasar, you poor bastard. Getting smashed by Luffy 3 times already. You have bad karma. This time... seriously... lie down and be dead... but then Law told LUffy to kidnap Ceasar... HUUUH! That is a plot I need to figure out. I wonder what they are up to... anyone has any idea? What's the point of kidnapping Ceasar? Who are they bribing? Doflamingo? And let's not forget Baby 5 and Buffalo coming to Punk Hazard. It's going to be spectacular!

Do You Know How to Study for Finals Exams?

So the dreadful December before Christmas holiday is here. Students... be afraid. Be very afraid. In fact, I am not too sure why I am blogging when I should be studying. That means I love you guys so much and I can't bear to be away from my blog. I am going to give some personal tips on how to study. I like to think of myself as an average student who did studied pretty hard yet get an average mark and still ended up in the first school and subject of my choice. I went through a hellish competitive Health Science environment. But I got bored of science and switched to Business. So I knooow all sort of academic pain students go through.. (except if you are in Arts then)
...


1) You get off the Internet right after you read this post. Seriously. My trick is that my dad will disable my Internet until exam period is over. If I need Internet, I gotta go use the kitchen laptop which I am too lazy to walk there. YUP! You have NNOOOO idea how easy it is to study without internet/phone distraction. Go to the library if you must. Be away from distractions.

...
2) You don't study in group
That is gotta be the most bullshit lie you tell yourself if you think you can even concentrate in a group study. Hell no. 
I tried that. I ended up doing absolutely nothing. So did my friends. We were like "WHY WE SO STUPID?"
...


3) Rewrite your notes
If you have time, read through your notes and at the same time, write down what you feel is the most important on a separate piece of paper. It's your cheat sheet. You just studied it the hour before your exam. Save you time and refresh your memory reaaaal quick. 


4) Do exercises!
Oh for the love of god, do exercises. I had this one computer exam (I was like whyyyy? Whyyy computer when I am majoring in Business? Whhyyy) anyway this exam, I really didn't have time to study for it. I had too many important exams before that one. So I read the summary notes the instructors provided. (Note: I know nuts about computer. I don't even know what a RAM does!) I printed out alll the past exams and spent the DAY BEFORE the exam doing them like crazy. I was sooo sure I was going to fail and I was like "NO GUTS NO GLORY!" So I studied my ass out that day. I went to the exam, did it, and got an A. I was like OMGGGGGGGG. MIRACLE! 

This is my usually 'neat' desk during my midterm. Note: ONE midterm. Basically, you see my computer is off. I have my notebook on my left. That's where I write down everything teachers said in class. Then I printed out the PowerPoint slides our teachers posted. Then I made my summarized cheat sheets (You see 2 of them. One is beneath my pencil and the other is leaning on the monitor) Then on the top left, that's the past exam that I am practicing on. Overall, that's how your desk should look like too during exams. 

So remember. After another few more weeks of horror... you will be done. Christmas HOLIDAY!
BOO YAAAAHHHH~
Christmas songs everywhere till you want to find the nearest person and hug their breath out!
Wonderful Christmas presents waiting for you!
Beautiful white snow on the ground and you make snowman with your family.
Go ice skating with your friends. Snow boarding in the woods...etc.
I have sooo much planned for this Winter break. I can't wait. At all!

Soooo not to spoil your winter holiday, you should really study your bum out so you won't have any lingering regret on Christmas! STUDY AND GOOD LUCK!

(Disclaimer: I took the following pics from Google. I just gotta share them!)
My god, this place is gorgeous! Good luck in your finals. May the Study Spirit be with you.

After exam...

Students' Job Hunting and Interviews Experiences

As a student, I applied to my university extra program called the Co-op program which allows students to work for 1 semester and study the next semester alternatively. The Coop searches for companies who are interested in hiring interns for a semester and the students have to apply to those jobs available. So I will share with you my experiences applying to jobs as students.

First of all, you write write a good CV/resume. Make sure it looks professional and use strong action verbs that relates to the jobs you are applying. Then it's always good to write a Cover Letter. That's where your employers get to know what kind of a person you are. In your cover letter, brag about yourself. A job interview is about selling yourself (legally, lol). Try to attract your potential employers to you so that you can get an interview.

Do not be discouraged if you don't get the job you applied for. When I first started applying for jobs, I was like "I'm so going to get interviewed." It's alright to feel like that. Though sometimes, things don't work out exactly. I'll tell you why. I customized my cover letter for each job and applied to over 30 jobs within the month. (that's the time frame given by the coop) and I would say 10% will contact you.  So this week (the interviewing week), I had 3 job interviews. It's tough and scary. I know. I was scared witless when I am waiting in the reception hall for my interview.

Dress formally. You would have a better chance getting the job if you over-dressed than under-dressed. You can bring a bag with you to put your stuff. A formal, black bag would be nice. I put my own copy of CV and Cover Letter with me in a thin, black folder. You want to look professional and assertive. Groom yourself to perfection. The employers aren't going to hire a poorly-kept person.

Remember you aren't the only person they are interviewing. Don't think you are already a winner when you get a job interview. They are also interviewing other candidates that might be more qualified than you. So don't let your guard down.

So horror stories of interviews. Haha, don't be scared. This is where you learn where your weaknesses are and improve them for your next interview.
My first interview was at a bank. I went there 30 minutes in advance and wait in the lounge. My heart rate was going crazy. I jumped every time the door open and smiled/grimaced to everywhere. Oh god... why... *facepalm*

Finally, my interview came. A man probably in his thirties. We went to his office. Sat down and I was tensed beyond reality. The key thing is to appear calm. I tried to compose myself, cross legs (for females) and don't straighten your back tooooo straight (that will show you are tense). Smile at the interview.

Anyway, first interview is always scary. You get the drill after a few interviews. So the interview asked me the following questions (at least those that I can remember).

Tell me about yourself
me: ehhhhh... I'm a very people-person and responsible... yeah. (Awkward right? Don't do that! Always elaborate your answers!)

So this is your first work term. You haven't learned a lot about (business position) yet.
Me: I am taking (business field) classes and I am learning about (business terms).

Oh? So what is a stock, preferred share and bond?
I have to say... my brain froze at that time. I was like dafuuuuuq I didn't prepare for this! Stupid! I should have! Aaaaauuuugghhhhh! I am soooo screwed. 
Anyway I answered some gibberish my brain could think of.
Lesson: When you answer a question, you better as hell be prepared to elaborate on it. If you can't, you will look extremely stupid. Trust me. I went through that.

Do you have any cold call experiences? (cold calls is mentioned in the job posting)
Me: No, I don't. (Interview made a face that I knew I am screwed) But I have experiences taking phone orders (Try to turn your answers positive. Always)

Do you have any question? 
Ask the interviewer! You should prepared some questions beforehand. You want to show your interviewers that you are passionate about the job. You want to learn more...etc.
Go to their website, do extra research to learn about the company.
Anyway I probably won't get that job since I screwed up so badly. It was my first interview so I won't be too harsh on myself. Onto my second interview (the very, very next day).

It's a government job. I'm not going to talk much about it because I promised I won't speak of the interview. Before applying for the job, I went to their seminar to learn about them. They came to my university to talk about it. So it didn't hurt to spend an hour listening to the job. It's advantageous because you can mention it in your cover letter. That shows to the interviewer that you make an effort to learn about that. That makes them happy. So they might schedule an interview (chance of getting the job increases!)

The interview itself went well. The interviewer recognized me from the seminar. She was like "You came to our seminar." See? Go to their seminar if you have a chance. It's worthy.

The interview tests your personality. We had a roleplay on phonecall services...where she grades you based on how you handle the situation. So if you are applying for a job about phonecall, be prepared for a roleplay situation. Be polite.

Sometimes, they will test you on your bilingualism. She asked me some questions in another language and I have to give a firm answers in that language. The interviewer can harm you that they are changing the language or they can just start talking to you in another language. Don't be scared. If you are not comfortable, just tell them that you are learning that language (you better be!) in extra course. Don't lie in an interview. It's going to backfire (not that I have experienced that before since I am honest in my answers).

The last one I went to was with a theater. I was like 'okay... why am I a business major doing in a theater firm?' There were 2 interviews and they were both relatively young. Apparently, we had a lot in common and we joked around. It was one of the nicest interviews I had been to. No stress. It's like meeting new friends. The questions they asked had a genuine curiosity and more personal feel than generic questions. When we finished, they showed me around the building and yada yada. Overall, quite entertaining.

Anyway, I got a job offer from 1 of the 3. Whooopiiieeee...

As funny as it is... don't say this in an interview. lol. 

Don't get to bummed up if you don't get an interview or a job offer. Harry Potter's author (J.K.Rowling was rejected many, many times before a tiny publisher house signed her up)!

Sometimes, you are just bad luck. See true story example below. That was my assignment grade. 
Make. No. Sense.

One Piece Chapter 690 Review

Oh. My. God. This OP chapter rocks so hard I think I exploded. Seriously, just when I thought this arc was getting boring, BOOM! EPIC-ROCK YOUR SHIT OUT!Chapter. Well done, Oda-sensei. This chapter was just sooo pure amazing, filled with lots of ownage.

So we see Luffy punching Ceasar last chapter.

And Ceasar aint looking pretty after receiving Luffy's BAMF! punch in the face. I almost feel bad for him. Almost. Then he had to start throwing Doflamingo's name everywhere and I got irked. 

Gas Lazer beam~

Not. Luffy's epic punch again. Alright, poor Ceasar now. You should really just lie down and pretend to be death. Luffy is piiiissed. I think Ceasar is the only villain who got punched by Luffy in the face twice. Did Rob Lucci got punched like that too? I don't remember much. 


When I saw this scene, I KNEW it was going to rock ass. I was literally flailing my hands in the air. This is a fight I have been waiting for for months! MONTHS! Finally!


Smoker being overpowered by Vergo who used Haki. I didn't expect Smoker to get pushed back this far since he is a vice-admiral. Granted that Vergo is higher in rank but ... I wanted Smoker to fight... wait for it.

OMG Poor Smoker *fangirl tears* His proud jutte... broke! Noooooooooooo! Vergo you ass!

Smoker defeated. My feels. My womanly feels. This is the second time his jutte broke. First time was done by Boa Hancock during the Marine Ford War. Her epic kick shattered it. That's my girl.

Those pants... those spotted pants that I recognized a universe away... this. is. going. to. rock.

Trafalgar Law looks like Luffy here... minus the droopy eyes. Anywayyy, he got his heart back frm Vergo! Thank you sooo much Smoker! You did own Vergo after all! I am so proud of these men!

Beautiful teamwork. Smoker got my respect. He helps a pirate twice (the Straw Hats during Arabasta after they escaped Crocodile's casino). That's really something. It took me a few seconds to understand what Trafalgar Law was going in the third panel. He was... teleporting his hat... =.= lol wut. Don't put on the hat, Law. Let the fangirls see more of your precious hair that you keep hiding! Jealous guys might joke that you are bald and need a hat!

OH HO! SUCH NERVE! Trafalgar Law said that with such conviction that he is going to crush Vergo. My hero.

Aw yeah, Law is being all bawsy. I got a scare at first, I was like OMG Doflamingo is on Punk Hazard? WHAT? Then I saw he was talking to a Den-Den mushi. Disappointed.

I love Law's attitude so much. He is telling big bad Doflamingo that his favorite subordinate lost. (EVEN before they even fight. You have no idea how awesome that is) Law is so confident and trust Luffy to get his job done. Again, beautiful teamwork.

Law... you are so amazing *fangirl hysteric giggling* You kick ass with words!

Aww shit. Vergo is pissed. Very black and pissed with muscle bulging. He needs to run more to get some leg muscles or he looks disproportion. So Law did piss off Vergo in the past and got traumatized as a result... I soooo want to know what happened. (evil kinky smirk) Did he get spanked? AHAHAHA. Oh boy... *wipe tears* Ok I should calm down or I will scare away my male readers. Sorry guys, hormones got over me. 


Doflamingo is so confident in Vergo's haki. I bet the possibility that Law would defeat Vergo even cross his mind. Prepare for a surprise buttsex! I mean... prepare to be mindblown. 

My jaw dropped. Trafalgar Law cut Vergo like he is a purple colored pudding. Just how powerful is this guy? I am so shock. I didn't expect such a fast victory. Not only that, Law just destroyed all of Doflamingo's plans! He destroyed the SAD production! Doflamingo is NOT amused at all. He lost his most valuable man and his factory all in ONE cut by his former crewmate. That's gotta burn. Someone give Joker some water to ease the burn. 

Screw that! Trafalgar Law just sliced the goddamn factory! Omg... ZORO A RIVAL! THERE! THERE! Before trying to own Mihawk, you should try having a friendly spar with our dearest Law! Look at Law's evil smirk on the left. This is the first time I see Doflamingo THIS pissed off. Oh man. So satisfactory. Law-chan you better be prepared for him. Thank god you teamed up with Luffy or I fear fans have to fear for your life. Speaking of allies, where are Law's crewmates? I want to know so desperately. I miss Bepo, Penguin and Shachi, hell even Jean Bart. I miss his freaking yellow submarine! Seriously, why didn't anyone think of sailing in a submarine? It's so useful avoiding marines!

I see Eustass Kid in there. My ovaries exploded. Not counting the Straw Hats, my personal favorite pirates are: Trafalgar Law, Eustass Kid (I like them before they were even cool! Hipster fan), Doflamingo, Crocodile and Boa (because she is beautiful... pun intended)
Seriously, that scar looks good on Eustass Kid. Make him real manly now. Hohohoho.
