I am so happy for winning the contest held by Geekpinoy. com. The blogger/writer is Mr. Jab Escutin and the contest was about “what you’re geeky about and why”

My winning answer can be found below:

I am an anime geek. I am such a geek that I named my first dog after Sailormoon. My passwords are Nihonggo characters I love from Ghibli. And on my wedding day, I marched the red carpet while the band plays “Voices” from the soundtrack of Macross. Nobody knew what the song was except for a fellow anime geek who was waiting for me at the end of the aisle.

This is a side of me that I will always be geeky about. Anime rules!!!

Thanks again and Jab.
