You’ll find English posts on Hoshilandia, but mostly the articles are written in Filipino. It’s because  Hoshi’s native language is Filipino and her readers are mostly local students, young professionals, and Filipinos living and working abroad (OFWs). Some of the posts here were also published in the Filipino community newspapers in JapanDaloy Kayumanggi.

Hoshilandia.com aims to:

  • share relevant information  for Filipino yuppies, millenials, and OFWs that inspire them to  become receptive, proactive, and positive.
  • provide thought-provoking lessons/ issues about society and well-being  here you’ll read essays, narrative stories, poems, and art projects.
  • entertain – Hoshilandia also features interviews and stories about celebrities, events, art and music scenes, movie reviews and  more.
  • Introduce Filipinos to the world – I believe in professional and skilled Filipinos are globally competitive
  • simplify things for Pinoys – I blog in casual Filipino and conversational English

By the way, “Aspectos de” are Spanish words for “Aspects of.”

Who is Hitokirihoshi?

My online moniker, Hitokirihoshi, is coined 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 the Hitokirihoshi (other just simply called me Hoshi) in me becomes a real “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)
  • Inquisitive -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
  • Ambivert – I am quite serious in deep conversation , but I’m jolly, talkative and quirky too (especially with my friends).
  • Passionate – I advocate financial literacy, education, Pinoy small time business, transportation service for Senior Citizens, and Philippine Culture and Arts
  • Into Arts – I am sort of cinephile, music lover, art appreciator ( architecture and visual arts), cultural heritages
  • Practical – My friends know how thrifty and level-headed I am.
  • Shuriken in Hitokirihoshi‘s logo – the 5-point Shuriken or Ninja throwing star represents my attack in blogging. The 5 points/ blades are the 5 sides or aspects of hitokiriHOSHI
