Shift, Shifting, Shifted

26 Feb


Ano… I must apologise for the lack of posts . Ever since the FF13 post on Valentine’s Day, I’ve been missing in (online) action. Nope not cos I’ve mysteriously eloped with the international man of mystery or flew to Tokyo to look for Mervyn (who’s swarmed with school work by the way.. poor guy), but because I’ve been pack, packing, packed & finally moved. Now. . . . . . I have to unpack!

Finally got my internet connection up and I must say I miss my old home already! I’ve yet to set up my PS3, many anime to catch up with and my showcase with all my precious figs is only half way done! Boo Hoo! Promise more posts to come after I’m erm done with the un-pack. Shifting house’s a headache (that comes with a truck load of muscle ache) I swear!


The Many Faces of Final Fantasy XIII

14 Feb


Sitting under the umbrella ella ella ella (sorry I JUST had to do that in “tribute” to Rihanna) are the three titles – FFXIII, FF Versus XIII, and FF Agito XIII. The former two for the PS3 platform & the latter for mobile phones. So I reckon there’s no more budget left for the PSP *cry*

Itasha – Pink Mario Airwave

12 Feb


I received an email with this super pink & terribly cute Honda Airwave Itasha [痛車(い たしゃ)] attached. Kinda proud that there’s a significant increase in such interest in our small market now.

Cell Phone Strap: Golden Unchi – Golden Poo

11 Feb


I’m really not too sure about this. Golden poo cell phone strap as a symbol of luck? According to Strappy World, the symbol of crap is very auspicious! I really give it to the Japanese to churn a mundane product into a money tree. In Japanese, your “output” or excrement is called “unko” and in the same pronunciation, it means lucky kid! Though I’m no Feng Shui 風水 expert I’ve read just about enough to understand the kinds of geomancy elements and symbols. But Poo? So far, I’ve really never heard of crap being a symbol of good luck. Well, at least not here~ So when I chanced upon this in my quest to blog about something I have zero affinity to . . . I almost fell off my chair.

Devil May Cry 4

09 Feb

For those who haven’t heard, Dante’s back to kick some ass and level up in the Public Relations department after a much disappointing anime (in my most humble opinion). Anyway the opening sequence’s quite an earful. I like its cinematic effects though I’m not exactly a big fan of opera :3

Cell phone straps: Hello Kitty

08 Feb


I’ve always thought that cell phone straps are quite pointless. Well, I still think so! Other than a money making ideology, what other logical and fundamental function do they really serve? I could really write a thesis on their functionality actually. But having said that, the rebellious side of me wanted to prove myself wrong. (Actually I’m just bored. . . to death) So here I am, trying to post about something cute. . .

Moe moe OS-tans

03 Feb


Another reason why I simply lurve Japan! The cho kawaii 美媚 (prounce mei mei, which is a Chinese slang for moe imouto chans) greeting you from your desktop is really an OS-tan. Apparently, these originated from the Futaba Channel – one of Japan’s most popular internet forum that deals in otaku culture; and competitor to 2Channel.

Generation of Chaos IV – Clain Clain Figure

02 Feb


Clain Clain, heroine of Idea Factory’s RPG game “Generation of Chaos IV,” was crafted into this magnificently detailed PVC display piece from Atelier-sai! In her full armor with her broadsword “Dragon Slayer” she measures about 20cm tall (in other words – 1/8 scale). A round display base is included for her to stab her dragon slayer into some piece of environment rock. Though I don’t particularly like how her hair turned out under the lights – too plasticly I simply lurveeee that adorable plaster on her cheek ~(^.*)~
