I built a Billy Dollhouse :D

July 21st, 2014

Dear Chibi,

About 2 months ago, I started building a little dollhouse, which I primarily worked on during my lunch break or down time. This personal side project came about when Robbie put the kit on my desk and asked if I wanted it. He had it lying around his desk for years and wanted to throw it away, so I happily accepted it without knowing what I was getting myself into… Not until I opened it anyway! It turns out the instructions were all in Japanese… and I don’t have the slightest clue when it comes to building things! Determined to make it happen, I went into an Art Supplies store and bought some glue and brushes. After many hours of trial and error, google translating, blu-tacking, taping, cutting, dissolving resin pellets and gluing… we have our finished product!!

My first impressions of Sailor Moon Crystal

July 7th, 2014

Dear Chibi,
2 days ago, we finally got to watch the very first episode of the highly anticipated new Sailor Moon reboot: ‘Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal

sailormooncrystal-01

..AND I LOVED IT!!  IT WAS FREAKIN AMAZINNNNGG!!! :D :D :D

I basically spent the entire weekend re-watching the episode over and over~ and listening to the new theme song ‘Moon Pride‘ by Momoiro Clover Z on loop. It’s no surprise why it’s been stuck in my head ever since. But hey, I don’t mind one bit! :D

When I first saw the teaser trailer, I had some mixed feelings. I liked it, but it also seemed a bit low budget and it worried me. I tried my best to remain optimistic. You never know until you’ve seen the real deal, right?

So July 5th was drawing near…we’d already spent months counting down to this date. However, an exclusive event in Japan was announced for June 30th for Usagi’s Birthday, with an advanced screening of the first episode. This meant that there were going to be people who would see it before everyone else.  I knew the chances of leaked footages and visuals were highly likely.  I really dislike spoilers, especially for something I care so much about. It was only 5 days away… There was no way I’d let others ruin it for me. I decided to avoid social media and all Sailor Moon related websites altogether. I had unsubscribed myself from all Sailor Moon pages from Facebook so nothing would come up on my news feed. It was a bit hard at first (always tempted to tweet!), but it helped a lot that I was really busy with work which took my mind off it. IT WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT! :D NO REGRETS!

I was so nervous staring at the countdown timer on Crunchyroll… my heart was racing! When the opening credits started playing, I started screaming with joy. I had this massive smile on my face the entire time. It basically blew my mind. OMG THE FEELS T^T

sailormooncrystal-02

I love this sequence so much :3 It has such a beautiful vibe to it..

sailormooncrystal-03

I can’t wait to see the other senshi attacks! The opening shot with Sailor Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Venus attacking was heaps impressive!

sailormooncrystal-04

Yeah, who needs men’s protection when there’s girls who can kick ass? ;D Really loving Tuxedo Kamen’s new look ^^

sailormooncrystal-05

AHHHH!!! SO MUCH AWESOME.

sailormooncrystal-06

“Moon Prism Power.. Make Up!”

sailormooncrystal-07

OMG OMG OMG OMG :O

sailormooncrystal-08

I personally thought the new transformation looks crazy! You can tell they put a lot of effort into it ^____^ Bring on the other senshi!!

sailormooncrystal-09

“Moon Tiara.. Boomerang!”

sailormooncrystal-10

ahahaah Tuxedo Kamen is hot :3 Could probably do without the overdose of glitter and bubbles though XD Really excited and looking forward to seeing more of him (without the roses! XD)

All in all, I’m super excited to see the rest of the arc! The new art style does take some time getting used to, but I’m going to embrace it with open arms. The first episode was pretty similar to the other incarnations (manga, 90s anime and PGSM)~ but I’m pretty sure there’s plenty of surprises to come!

My Moon Stick Proplica is here!!!

July 5th, 2014

Dear Chibi,

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!! My Moon Stick Proplica (Prop Replica) finally arrived, and it’s BEAUTIFULLLLL AHHHHHHHHHHHH!! :D :D :D

moonstick

The first time I held this wand, I wanted to cry~ it was a special little moment for me :3

Rayfy, Steffi, Marcus and MZ preordered this for my birthday and I finally got a chance to pick it up from Rayfy tonight. I’ve been wanting to get this since it was first announced~ so it’s been quite a long wait, but totally worth it!

Thanks guysssssssss <3

Now let’s have a look at the stick itself, shall we? ;D

moonstick01

The box is elegant and simple. I like! It would have been nice to have a clear plastic front to display the wand inside the box,  but it comes with a pretty stand so I don’t mind ^___^

moonstick02

It feels a bit strange seeing the word “Moon Stick” like this. I’m so used to the word being associated with my MoonSticks comics ^.^

Paintball action.. my first time. Oh my!

May 18th, 2014

Dear Chibi,

Last Thursday I had my first Paintball experience, and boy was it scary!! I was forced to go since it was part of work, paid by work, and done during work hours as a team bonding session. I took as many precautions as I could and hoped for the best XD

Green Team vs Red Team. All happy faces before the games started!

I didn’t really know what I was doing. My game plan was to hide at the back somewhere and not come out XD Despite my super defensive play, it didn’t work out in my favour. Everybody has to eventually get shot at some point. So many bullets were flying all over the place from all different directions. I was terrified. It was also hard to tell who was who with all the face masks on. I think I only managed to shoot one person…and he was from my own team… whoops… ^^”

Here’s what I wore! :D A pair of green gloves from Daiso and our Green Team bandana/arm band Somps made :D

Jacky’s Birthday & Mother’s Day

May 13th, 2014

Dear Chibi,

Last weekend I celebrated both Jacky’s 27th Birthday and Mother’s Day (which landed on the same day this year). On Saturday, Jacky and I spent the afternoon bike riding at Mirambeena Park. We came here for a photo shoot one time and noticed it had a nice bike trail, so we came back here just for that! The overcast sky was perfect, as we didn’t have to worry about getting burnt or being too hot :) We rode around for about 3 hours, and although I was super sore, tired and bruised by the end of it, it was lots of fun ^^

Afterward we had takeaway from El Jannah for dinner. Deliciously fatty and oily charcoal chicken! ;D We spent the rest of the night watching Joey Yung’s ‘Show Up’ Concert on DVD and singing along :D

mothersday12

On Sunday we had a Mother’s Day lunch at Green Peppercorn in Fairfield. Like every Mother’s Day, restaurants were busy and packed. We waited for an hour to be seated, and even then the service was pretty slow. Long waits for everything. But of course, we knew that was likely to happen so it didn’t bother us too much. We were just really hungry since we end up eating around..3pm (We arrived at 12.30) XD

The food was delicious, especially the curry, fried rice and soft shell crabby. Portions felt a little small though compared to a few other places we’ve been to.

mmmm…Yummy fried ice-cream :D

Later that night, Jacky and I went to Mary’s in Newtown for some American style burgers :D Round two of fatty and oily foodies! Although this place is known for having the ‘Best burger in town’ , I actually really enjoyed the fried chicken! I’ve never had fried chicken taste this good before. Even without the crispy outer layer, the inside was juicy and super smooth! mmmmm :D

Free Comic Day @Sydney Kino

May 4th, 2014

Dear Chibi,

Yesterday Jacky and I decided to drop by Kinokuniya to check out the annual Free Comic Day event. We went to one back in 2009, though this time around the scale seemed larger. The whole book store was packed! The queue for the free comic was so long I didn’t bother lining up for one.. XD Lots of people lining up to buy as well since there was a 20% off all comics and manga sale going on.
