Cursed Sight is out!

August 4th, 2015

Dear Chibi,

Today is my second day at home trying to recover from the flu *sigh*. Nasty stuff. It’s been rather boring the past day as I couldn’t do anything but sleep. I tried to play LoL but that just made me want to puke :P Luckily for me, Marcus/InvertMouse’s new game “Cursed Sight” got released today so I took this opportunity to check it out :) With a bowl of congee in hand, I entered the land of Taria, and all its pretty visuals *_* The setting reminds me of Ancient China which I love (due to my liking of wuxia genres)~ though it’s probably more fictional than anything else. There were a lot of ‘westernized’ elements in it, like the character having bacon and eggs, foods not typical of the Chinese.. but whatever XD. The main thing is… Cursed Sight is pretty good! I end up playing through the whole thing (and seeing all 4 possible endings) in one go, a bit under 5 hours. Best 5 hours spent today, woo!

I really enjoyed the story & script. There were some really sad moments (I cried twice) and some crazy plot twists @.@ Each of the 4 endings were drastically different (some kinda creepy >.<). I thought the art and music were both really well done and added a lot to it. I normally dislike reading novels (sad fact.. I know), but I got through this one easily. I’m happy to say, my first Visual Novel experience has been a good one :) yaaay~

Final Fantasy X.

August 1st, 2015

Dear Chibi,

I recently finished playing the main story of FFX (PS4 remastered version) and have been feeling a little empty inside… THIS GAME SO SAD AND BEAUTIFUL AND TRAGIC. AHHHHHHH.. Just wonderful. I love the main characters so much… Yuna, Tidus, Auron, Lulu, Calamari (ohoho), Wakka and Rikku. I loved seeing Yuna and Tidus gradually fall for each other, but I also loveeeeeeed Lulu and Wakka’s interaction. It was intriguing, which lead me to constantly talk to Lulu throughout the game. I didn’t know about the game’s hidden ‘affection’ mechanics, which slightly changes certain scenes in the game, depending on which character ‘likes’ you the most through your actions. It goes without saying, Lulu end up with the highest affection score so Tidus gets a ride with her, and she’s the one passing the Blitz Ball to Tidus during his limit break 8D. hehee, that’s kinda cool… though WOULD YUNA NOT BE MORE APPROPRIATE? XP

Yuna’s sending. OMG Yuna is perfection :’)

And yes.. I squealed like a 13 year old fan-girl watching the kiss scene >w<

Meet Champynette!

July 26th, 2015

Dear Chibi,

Our neighbourhood has a lot of cats, both owned and strayed. We walk past a few everyday going to and from work. We also find cats visiting our front and backyards. Since we see them so much, Hubby and I have even given them names XD There’s a Sylvester, Sylvester Jr, Tiger, Sunny, Blinky Bill, and Patches… but recently there’s an addition of Champynette!

Who is Champynette? This one:

champynette

It looks exactly like Champy, but twice the size! O_O We have no idea if she’s even related to him, but we’re pretending it’s Champy’s mum 8D. The first time Champynette came to visit, she sat outside our glass door, peering in for 4 hours straight. Champy was not impressed! lol

Luncheon with the Girls!

July 26th, 2015

Dear Chibi,

luncheon-mghs12

This is the first time I invited the girls over, and boy was it a lot of fun :D We don’t usually have large groups over, so it was a good challenge hosting/catering for everyone. I’m glad everything worked out! ^^

luncheon-mghs01

All the foooodsssss :D Hubby and I cooked up tuna pasta bake, zucchini fritters with dill + labne dip, pumpkin soup and a green salad. Kaz made the apple, potato, and egg salad with mayo. Mich & Troy brought some apple ciders and made fish & veggie pastries. Helen & Fong brought marinated chicken wings & drumsticks, while Newway cooked up a beef casserole!

Snow, Hot Springs & Wilderness – Blue Mountains Getaway

July 21st, 2015

Dear Chibi,

This past weekend Hubby and I spent 2 days and 1 night up near the Blue Mountains for a little winter getaway :) A few days earlier, we heard there were several road closures due to ice and snow(!), but luckily it didn’t affect us at all. In fact, there was basically no traffic, woo! We made a short stop at Maccas for breakfast, before heading up towards Katoomba. The higher we went, the lower the temperature. This was way exciting!

We stopped by Black Heath where we finally saw snow! YAAAAY! It was around 4 degrees here.

After our snow fun, we did some sight seeing and bush walking down Govetts Leap. We only saw 1 person along the way, so it was a really peaceful walk :D It started off very misty, but the more we descended, the clearer everything became.

Chibi tries out HelloFresh!

July 13th, 2015

Dear Chibi,

So… I recently heard about this company called “Hello Fresh” which delivers simple, healthy recipes to your home for you to cook yourself. They provide all the ingredients you need in the exact amounts, so no grocery shopping is required. The meals are quick and your dinner is ready in about 30 minutes..Sounds sweet, doesn’t it? The downside is, it ends up costing you more money than if you bought the ingredients yourself. They are a business, after all.

Funnily enough, my sister-in-law sent me this deal where I can get 3 meals for 2 people, for just $1 free (Normally $69). Now that’s a bargain ;D And so I signed up to see what all the fuss is about…

Yesterday, my $1 grocery box arrived at my door:

Let’s see what’s inside?

Emily’s 28th Birthday

July 12th, 2015

Dear Chibi,

Yesterday we celebrated Emily’s 28th Birthday with a get-together at her newly renovated apartment in Neutral Bay.  It looks really nice and modern and cosy :3 When Hubby and I first arrived, we played some FFX remastered on her PS3. Oh the early days! Speaking of FFX, I’ve been playing it at home on the PS4 and I’m almost done with the main story! Will blog about that some other time ;D

Sompies & Dong brought a bunch of boardgames along, but I was most excited about one called ‘Avalon’. It’s one of those bluffing, deduction (mafia-type) mind-games. I loveeeeeeee these sort of games. I enjoy trying to read people and tricking them at the same time. It kinda messes with their heads 8D

mle-birthday04

I ‘succeeded’ 3 out of the 4 rounds we played. I consider this a win.
