Portrait Painting

6th January 2018

Dear Chibi,

Today I did my first painting of the year featuring Korean beauty Pony :) Please click on the image below for a larger size:

I really like how she turned out, especially her right eye and her hair. The hair is always the funnest part *scribbles random lines everywhere* hehehe.

Zoomed in closer look

Sailor Moon Season 1 Set Bluray Review

3rd January 2018

Dear Chibi,

Ready for the first review of 2018?

Sailor Moon season 1 is finally out on Bluray in HD format for the first time in Australia. It uses the newly created High Definition masters from Japan which is super exciting~ but what about the DVD sets fans have been collecting so far?

Madman will continue to release SuperS and Sailor Stars on DVD, but will be using the Japanese HD upscales instead of the European masters. I actually really liked the European masters used for seasons 1-3, so I’m hoping these will be just as good.

Comparing the limited edition DVD next to the Bluray boxset, the packaging is basically identical (just different sizes)

Dear Chibi,

Leaving Disney World, we had two more days in Orlando before our drive to Miami. We spent Thanksgiving day at Orlando Eye and Madame Tussauds Orlando. It was pretty relaxing and we were no longer limited to just Disney World food!

Breakfast @Denny’s. They had such a big menu it was almost overwhelming. Breakfast was super sweet. Literally 8D


Orlando Eye is the giant 122m Ferris wheel you see in the background. It’s the fifth tallest Ferris wheel in the world. We decided to ride on it later in the night.

‘Your Name’ Bluray Review

30th December 2017

Dear Chibi,

It’s been a long time since an anime film (or rather, any animation film) has left this much impression on me. Shinkai Makoto’s ‘Your Name’ (Kimi no Na wa.) is the highest-grossing anime film of all time and it’s easy to see why. The moment the film starts I’m mesmerized by the stunning art, the gorgeous colours and the compelling animation. Every scene is a work of art. The detailed visuals and audio work harmoniously together to convey a very realistic portrayal of Japan. Yet, in the end… it was the emotionally powerful story that moved me. “Your Name” is pretty perfect to me. Tears were shed :’D

Sailor Moon Musical~ Le Mouvement Final

23rd December 2017

Dear Chibi,

Another year, another Sailor Moon musical :D This year’s seramyu is based on the 5th and final season: Sailor Stars. I’ve really enjoyed watching these the last couple of years, so it’s a bit sad that it’s ending. Nevertheless, it had a really good run and we made lots of fun memories :)

My previous blogs: Petit Etrangere (2014) | Un Nouveau Voyage (2015) | Amour Eternal (2016)

I invited Kaz and Kat over to watch the show together. It’s sort of become our little tradition. But first~ home made lunch :)
