My online moniker, Hitokirihoshi, is from my two favorite anime characters– Kenshin Himura also known as Hitokiri Batousai (from Samurai X) and Emperor Hotohori a.k.a Hoshi (Fushigi Yuugi). Hitokiri means ‘slasher’ and Hoshi is ‘star’ so hitokirihoshi is Slasher Star. At first it’s just for fun, but later on I realized I become Hitokirihoshi (other just simply called me Hoshi) or “Slasher” online and offline.
I worked in three different companies for full time before I decided to try telecommuting or freelancing. However since nth time I always do sideline business and part time jobs (anak pawis here). Thus, I become freelancer/ home-based entrepreneur/ online seller/ blogger ( see the slash?).
I don’t like posting photos of myself ( not a fan of selfie) and anyway, I started as an anonymous blogger. For your information, I am…
- Slow mover but hyper thinker – I like to separate things and aspects ( one reason of ‘aspectos’ in my blog title and having different pseudonyms)
- I’m opinionated, but I prefer to feature other stories and people than myself as a blogger ( let’s see in the future when I become videoblogger). Oh I really like interviewing interesting people
- I’m quite and serious in deep conversation , but I’m jolly, talkative and weird too (especially with my friends)
- I’m boyish, ambivert, cinephile, music lover, thrifty, capricorn, and star 😉
- I advocate financial literacy, education, Pinoy small time business, transportation service for Senior Citizens, and Philippine Culture and Arts
