A couple ‘o’ days have passed since the sweet foxy Saint Valentine’s Day…
It’s barely several days after the dawn of a new Lunar Year, but the 14th day of the 2nd moon is here once again!
Give Your Big Bro Chocolate Day Saint Valentine’s Day is the very day when girls of all ages prepare chocolates as a gift to their loved ones (Well at least in Japan, everywhere else it’s the guy’s responsibility to dish out hard earned monies on expensive romantic dinners. ^^;)!!
Falls on the same day, Day 1 of the Lunar New Year also marks the day when major and amateur figure creators from all over Japan gathered in one large specialised event to show cast all their latest and upcoming releases…
The 17th annual Wonderful Hobby Life For You!! aka the Wonder Festival 2012 Winter bares its fangs poisoning would-be collectors and comrades alike!
I don’t usually celebrate my Coming-to-Earth Day…
But when I do it’s not my plan at all since I always forgot about the day itself every year!
Ooooh~! Tadaima, Tama-chan!
When Danny-san announced the news some weeks earlier, it was an incredible surprise to all of us Islanders that he’s going to hold a CJN on our island!
To be held in the St. Joseph’s Novitiate at the Gurney Paragon, Penang, the gathering will begin at a rather odd hour: 1300 – 1800 on a Saturday (Thus Culture Japan Noon instead of Culture Japan Night… XDc)… 0_0
For the uninitiated, St. Jo’s is a heritage building made anew via reconstruction, and is now a hub for community events with rotsa restaurants surrounding it…
Another year ends, and another new year takes its place!
Tama-chan and Kotama-chan, readying themselves by the balcony of my den, eagerly awaits the obligatory fireworks at the strike of 0000 in the mid night…
The calm before the
storm fireworks! ^_~
Just a few minutes left until the btoom! ^0^
Well at least for most of them public. Enthusiastic comrades will not let the joy die down so easily… XDc
Last weekend spanning across both days, a graduation exhibition for a local design studio was held within a
n abandoned local shopping mall in conjunction with the Lost Gospel Cosplay Club…
During the event entitled “The Teens”, a cosplay competition and many ACG shinanigans will be held… ^_^
As a guest exhibitor, I was invited to be part of the event by none other than my own pal for many years, Donny Choo-san!
To my surprise, he is part of the LGCC and a cosplayer in the event too! 0_0
Ever since the acquisition of the Moekana learning cards twin packs from AFAMY12 two moons ago, I’ve been pondering of a way to integrate them into my usual figure 4koma shenanigans…
Thus the rise of another 4koma sub series of Osaka! XDc
While pronounced as Moekana, the title of this new series is actually “Moe ka na…?”, meaning “Is (Was) it Moe (Cute)? :3c
A blend between my usual randomness with the Moekana learning cards, Moe ka na…? will expand the standard example given by the cards with lingo used by the Otaku culture, further improve the fun of learning new Hiragana especially to the comrades and fans of Japanese anime and manga.
She rose to such fame and popularity in these past years that she’d made many cameo appearances in various anime series and games. :3c
A Figma version of her was made some time ago, and now finally a cutesy rendition of herself in Nendo form… ^_~
A couple of weeks have passed since AFAMY12, I have yet to categorise my acquisitions from then due to so many happening in the period: Post AFA Syndrome aka minor fever x failure to readjust, slight depression, end of vacation leaves, social problems at work, laziness, etc. just to name a few…
Finally put aside all those 3rd world problems and gathered enough strength to properly unveil my loots (Still prefer the term acquisitions but otaku comrades have exclusively “trademarked” the term all around the globe referring to their purchases… ^^;)…
Now would you look at them booty, yohoho arrrrr matey! XDc
The Japanese Restaurant just in front of the venue, Tonkatsu, provided us with bottomless green tea beverages and a timed sushi buffet or sort during the course of the night…
Soon, very soon! It’s only a day left until AFAMY12!!
Taking a day off today, Goshujin-sama and Tama-chan are currently packing our stuffs and baggage as we’ll be leaving our beloved island first thing in tomorrow morning and head towards
Mud Estuary Kuala Lumpur for the mid-year event! X3c
Expect rotsa new announcements of lovely Figma, Nendoroids and scaled figures at its own corner of display booths!!
A wise one once said: There are always a higher mountain behind the hills…
Starting today April the 10th until the 1st of next Moon, comrades will be able to cast votes upon their favourite Nendoroid, Figma and Scaled Figures ever released by GSC in the past for a possible re-run/re-release, and nominate various charas in consideration for future releases! !
Kuro-chan finally finds the time to watch several episodes of the TV Animation she appeared on, now on air in Japan weekly…
あけましてお萌えで―っててて, that was almost a full Moon ago! ^~^;
Just a few moments earlier with complements of distant fireworks, we’ve entered another dawn of a brand new Lunar New Year!! ^0^
And so the bunnies have retired, leaving the new Earth Cycle to the care of the just arrived Dovahkiin! ^_~
