Earning (or trying to)
I've always been a bit crazy in the sense where I'll gain sudden interest in something and just go mad over that for a while, and then it ends. Sometimes for good, and sometimes the craze comes back in the future. One of this very thing is watching JK on youtube. Been binge watching them, JKNews, JKFilms, their vlogs. I think the phase is ending soon though.

Anyway, another thing that I've gained interest on (again) is trying to earn some side income online. Technically not really a side income because the earnings are little. When I first started, I did it on one website (which I'm still using to this day, but have been inactive on and off for the past 4 years) and I saw that it earned me peanuts. My friend told me someone she knew managed to earn quite a bit from there, but it all depends. So I took the chance, but it didn't earn me much. The thing about these websites is you'd have to earn up to a certain amount before you can cash out. And it takes very long for many people (like me).

Over these 4 years, I've joined so many websites, but I got tired of them. One, because there's too many. Two, I get lazy. Three, some are not legit sites, so I stopped once I found out (thankfully I'm lazy so I didn't actually earn much to feel the pain of money loss). So now, I've decided to just stick to what I will list here (including my referral code) along with my experience with them. Some of them are not applicable to all countries.

1. Ayuwage
I joined this in 2014 I think. To earn from this website is pretty simple. There are tabs with various options that we can choose from. Under each tab, there are explanations on how we can earn. The ones I always do is paid to click websites under the 'View' and 'Regular' tabs, copy paste links under the 'Browse' and 'Explore' tabs, sharing links on FB and clicking them under the 'Share' tab (I tried this for the first time yesterday because I didn't notice it there before and it worked), and searching for websites under the 'Search' tab. There are other tabs there, but I stick to only these. One sad thing is usually websites like this cater to America, so those outside may not receive as many opportunities to earn (less things to click, less things to search for, less things to share, etc). But I don't really mind because I still did managed to earn some. It took me very long because as I said, I am always on and off with my mood.

2. Clixsense
I actually joined this in 2014, but I did nothing with it. So I earned less than 5 cents I believe. I ended it there and then. Yesterday, I reactivated my account and tried to understand the website better because this is the one website that I've read many good things about. It has a good reputation. It is simple. It has paid to click ads, surveys, and tasks to complete. And there's a daily checklist which if completed, earns you an extra bonus. So after only two days of using this site, I've earn $2.9750. I'm hoping I can continue this good pace and get to cashout soon. I haven't tried cashing out because I haven't reached the minimum amount but I'm just going to trust this site for now.

3. Viewfruit, Toluna, Globaltestmarket, ipanelonline
These four websites are survey websites. I don't really recommend them, but anyone can try them. I get annoyed with them because many of the surveys that I get, I'm always unqualified for them. Sometimes I'll be almost done with a survey and they screen me out, wasting my time. So it takes great pains to earn any from here. I'm still sticking to them, but I only access the sites once in a while when I don't feel like I will flip out if they screen me out.

4. 8share
This particular one is the simplest. All you have to do is share out links, hope people will click on them and load the pages, and get credited for each unique visitor. Each click earns you a few cents. I think there is a different website for each country that they cover, so mine is specific to my country. Foreigners who click on the links are not counted.

One important thing to check is the cashout option. I only have paypal, so I always make sure I can cashout there if not my savings account. Also, always check the terms and conditions of the cashout.

I've read that sites with 'bux' attached to them are all scams, so be mindful about them, although scams are not limited to just those.

These aren't really a side income kind of thing. They're just something I can do to earn. The earnings may be little, but if you add them all up, you can at least get an amount where you can treat yourself to a nice meal or buy something, or even donate. The main reason why I'm doing this is actually to pay off my student loan. What I earn in one year (or at least what I aspire to) can help me pay off one month's pay back of my loan. I think that's great. And when I'm debt-free, I can use that money for something else. I don't know how long I will keep this up, but I hope I am diligent.

Thank you for reading. =)

USO! Japan ep 18 2001.08.25
Hi. I’m back with a new video. My first ever full video. It was tiring, I have to say. This time I depended a lot on the Chinese subs because I’m better (not good, but better) with Chinese. This show aired in Taiwan previously, hence the Chinese subtitles. Sometimes the Chinese subtitles and what is being said doesn’t seem to match (might be my own bad understanding).

The translation is by no means 100% correct. Some parts I do not understand, I tried to make it understandable. I get confused sometimes. Plus, some words they say I believe everyone understands such as “Sugoi!” or “Gambatte!”, I didn’t sub. I’m sure everyone’s level of Japanese far surpasses that. Lol.

Anyway, I believe almost all of us know about the video streaming issues, both the Dailymotion and subbed videos from communities. It is a very serious matter. I really hope no one shares any of the subbed videos from anyone anywhere. I mean, seriously, where would we be if all the communities closed? No more Arashi (the HORROR). So, please don’t share the videos anywhere or try to profit from them. After so long, everyone should already know what not to do especially when this is always the most important rule and promise that every subbing-related party wants us to uphold.

As usual, I will friend-lock the videos after 2 weeks (or maybe later). To those who add me as a friend for video access, be prepared to see my posts that are unrelated to the fandom because this account is also for my personal stuffs.

Edit: I will be creating a new account for the videos, so you don't have to add this account. Will anounce it when it's up. Feel free to unfriend this account. =)

Links have been taken down. Please refer to hashiri_dase.

Honestly, sometimes this show brings up our expectation of the horror too much. But, it’s still quite scary anyhow. By the way, I remember someone commenting and requesting for an episode with Aiba in it. Well, this chosen episode happens to have a lot of him. Haha. =)

For some reason, although I always make the download posts public, when I post them, they come out as friend-locked. -.-

Post will be friend-locked after two weeks. And please don’t upload or stream anywhere.

PS: Can anyone recommend a good video cutter? I can't seem to find any good softwares.

TSD 2012.02.25 Cuts
Hey again. Here's another TSD video with another JE guest. This time I actually tried out using proper programs to hardsub them, but I encountered a little problem with the second clip. So, it's softsubbed instead.

Some parts I don't understand, as usual I left them unsubbed. But I did try to sub as much as I can.

I've forgotten where I got the raw video from. It's been quite long. Sorry about that.

Post will be friend-locked in two weeks.

By the way, Arashi fans out there. Just wondering if anyone's interested in English subbed videos of USO! Japan. I know there are Chinese subbed ones out there. I might work on them some time in the future if it's in demand.

Edit: Links have been taken down. Please refer to hashiri_dase.

TSD 2012.06.02 Cuts
Hi. All these time I've always only gotten subs from people and I know it's really hard work. Now I've actually tried it myself and boy, was it tiring. Just for a mere 1 minute took a very long time. I really appreciate the subbers out there. Otsukare~

Well, it's my first time subbing. My Japanese is only at a beginner's level and honestly, I still don't quite understand some parts in the video, but I did try to sub as much as I could. Some parts that I think is self-explanatory, I left them unsubbed. The font colour and timing might be a little off and hard to read. Sorry about that. I used Windows Movie Maker as a trial and the options are limited and the most basic.

So, here goes the result of 6-7 hours worth of subbing. It's definitely not as good as videos from other subbers, but I hope it's at least understandable.

The raw is taken from days_so_sweet. Thank you very much.
