[Picture Intensive] I was cruising on good vibes when I decided to try watching another magical girl anime show. Turned out its nothing like any other magical (kiddish) girl anime I’ve watched before. Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na koto ~ Natsu no Sora~ ( 魔法遣いに大切なこと ～夏のソラ～) is last year’s summer anime and I’m not trying to do a review here cos I’m just terrible at it. :P I’m only VERY infatuated with the production for this anime.

I have a question. I have an underlying, unquestionably questionable question.
Actually, I have been questioned to question simply because I just wonder.
It’s been some time since I last updated my “pilgrimage”. So after the burning me eyes with the glaring Golden Temple Kinkakuji, the “Silver” one is up next. Ginkaku-ji (銀閣寺, the Temple of the Silver Pavilion) is another Buddhist temple and despite its name, it’s actually made of wood. Continue reading “Kyoto – Ginkakuji (銀閣寺) Rendezvous” »
So after they’ve tried sticking studs on fake nails, eyelashes & cool gadgets, you think they’ve got nothing else to plaster glitter on right? Wrong! These really macho machines are the latest victims! Now I know diamonds are a girl’s best friend. . . but this I think… is a little too bling and definitely on the wrong target -.-!
Stumbled upon an email with nature’s beauty attached. Indeed its the brilliant work of Mother Nature. I know its Spring now in most countries but I’ve really never set eyes on such before. I wonder how the ice actually forms! Perhaps a heavy shower then a sudden drop in temperature? It even has the patterns on the leaves. . . like a cold icy replica of the real thing. The location in the photos was said to be somewhere in South China. Needless to say one can never find such beauty from where I come from.

I chanced upon Kotobukiya’s release of Kureha, bought her on impulse and the rest was history. . . Well not exactly history. Started photographing and experimenting with feathers. Was trying to get that heavenly, slightly over exposed look but it was already dark and I had terrible lightning in da house. I sent a couple to Zinc and he gave them a complete cosmetic surgery. It turned out gorgeous! So have decided to begin and end them with, in this post together with a “new” gallery for easier viewing.

Ever since my PSP died (don’t ask!) I’ve been sorta deprived of a portable to beat the hell out of rush hour every day. Windbell was super sweet to loan me his DSLite and I’ve been whacking it as if there’s no tomorrow.. Anyhow, I chanced upon this LV look alike beaut with Bape Milo characters plastered on da console face. It’s gonna be released in Japan on 1st April. I’m keeping my fingers crossed and praying darn hard that it’s not an April Fool’s Day joke because I wanna da gold one! Oh God praise da babe…. I mean Bape!
Ok this has been sitting in my drafts for the longest time and the high quality video that Mervyn so kind heartedly, encoded has became sorta stale by the time I got to hitting the “Publish” button. Anyhow da new arcade game indeed brings back tonnes of memories. I remember spending after school hours at the arcade just busy whacking buttons and I was so head over heels in lurve with *my hubby Akuma and his super Blackout special. (Oooh I hope he’s back!).
Now that’s what I call drinking out of your own cups. . . . . . oops I mean bowls.

What are those extremely cute smileys?!
Japanese emoticons are called Kaomoji 【顔文字【かおもじ】】 (face characters) or Emoji 【絵文字【えもじ】】 (picture characters). My first encounter with them was probably when I started playing Final Fantasy XI in 2002. At that time, the NA version hasn’t been released yet and the servers consisted of mainly Japanese players. While they were conversing, they used these very cute and expressive emoticons that I’ve never seen before. Then, I saw a fellow non-Japanese using it as well and I asked him what are these called. Kaomoji he replied, and told me I’d be able to find instructions on how to get them on a FFXI forum that we non-Japanese frequented. I went on the forum and browsed through the threads, sure enough, I came across one that taught users how to install Japanese emoticons for use in the game! This is what I am sharing in this post, how to use Japanese emoticons on your own english based PC.
