Bandai Hobby created this pretty cool site to host this awesome Phase Impulse MG Edition video to entice purchases. They’ll show you loads of cool pix and make you drool but its only download-able FOC to buyers from May 24th – August 31 2008 in Japan. But some kind soul has decided to share the wonder and thus the saying. . .”Good Things MUST Share!”

Okok I know its corny. -.-!Just Enjoy

 
 

Digital Diorama

18 May

A diorama is a model of a natural setting which shows a specific moment in time; usually an imaginative scene built using miniatures. This guy went one step further and composed some awesome Gundam Dioramas with digital art. I just find them super awesome!

Kyoto – Kinkakuji (金閣寺) Rendezvous

17 May

I went to Kyoto on the 3rd day of my trip. This is the 2nd time I’ve been there actually and I think I prefer it more than Tokyo. Kyoto is ooooold – and she sweeps a sense of nostalgic ancient history through its streets. That’s what I love about it. It’s exactly a well blended mix of classic &  modern culture,just less haste & waste. Established in 794, Kyoto retains its unique position as the country’s historical and cultural heart and believe it or not, its the birthplace of the spirit and technology of traditional Japan.

Odaiba Rendezvous

14 May

Towards the end of my trip the sky darkened and drizzled as if it knows I’ll soon stop contributing that vigorously to Japan’s economy. LOL I went to Odaiba on the very last day of my trip hoping to attend the Super Comic City convention taking place that day but as it turned out I was pulled away by the mysterious dark aura in the sky. The weather matched my mood and the air was exhilaratingly fresh, but the face of chibi statue of liberty. . . – was horribly black.

Happy Mother’s Day

11 May

Nekoguchi wishes everybody a fabulous Mother’s Day!

Mother’s day falls on the 2nd Sunday of May for most countries. This day was decided to commemorate all mothers for well, just being a Mom! It’s not an easy “job” considering its a 24 hour, no salary, no over time pay, no annual and medical leave entitlements and definitely no mobile phone subsidy kindda job. So common, give your mom 2 hugs today!

I truly admire and appreciate mine! Just this morning she was still sweeping and mopping the floor away and like all mothers, when I extended my help, she brushed me off asking me to go get breakfast instead.

It’s my mom’s birthday today too and I’m not gonna squirm by combining 2 presents into one for her. I bought her curry and butter crabs (her favourite) instead LOL. ok so does that count as two separate gifts?

What did you get for your Mom on Mom’s day?

Tokyo Tower Rendezvous

10 May

Tadaima! -

Sorry for the long wait but I’m back~ from my rendezvous in Japan! Well, not entirely back~ I think only this empty shell of a body came back. I’m quite certain I left my heart and consciousness there, together with a few strands of hair and perhaps a quarter of a million expired cells! LOL .

Okay, actually this soulless body has been back for about 5 days but because work missed me so much, I bounced back to it immediately – but only to find a mountain of crap waiting for me to clear. Yeah what a drag.

Anyway, I’m in the middle of processing all the peeks! Am starting off with the famous Tokyo Tower for this string of Rendezvous updates.
