Delayed Season of Another Chaldean Love

It’s that time of the year again! Chaldea is in a state of emergency once more as the female Servants gathered around the canteen block in hopes to borrow the kitchen for their chocolate production, much to the dismay of a certain red-clothed chef.

While trying to come up with a high-quality recipe for mass production together with several other Servants, Lady Murasaki together with the Master accidentally transported ray-shifted to yet another interesting situation, to no one’s surprise…

Along came the new Valentine’s Servant for the year, a super genki and bubbly Gal with a unique penchant for uplifting the craziness factor of an already weird and somewhat fun event.

End of a Decade, Entering the Next

Welcome to the 2nd decade of the 21st Century!

Akeome_2020

Another day, another year. Can’t believe I’ve survived yet another decade off the 21st Century…

Here’s a review of all of my past year…

Another Season of Chaldean Love

Once again, the designated heart-throbbing day full of chocolates, blushes and gifts is finally upon the excited Chaldea.

Servants and staff alike are all busy preparing their Valentine’s present(s) for their special someone…

However, an unexpected disaster happens! All the chocolate ingredients suddenly disappears! 

This of course created uproars amongst the ladies of Chaldea, how are they going to convey their feelings now!?

Amongst the mystery is the beautiful custodian of the recently opened library of Chaldea. According to her, a cursed book suddenly escaped from her grasp, creating this panic event… 

Such is the premise of this year’s Valentine’s Event in Fate/Grand Order, the mobage I’ve played since its release three and a half years back.

Flourishing a Boar-ing Year Ahead

With the Terran canine howling its final reign of the year, along comes the Terran swine stuffing the next with fulfilling fortune.

This year, we celebrate the Year of the Pig. Or Boar if you’re offended with the former.

Speaking about pigs, of course our Caster of Okeanos won’t hesitate to enjoy the occasion with her horde of cute swine, and a banquet of a party.

Just beware of her offerings of Kykeon…

He Who Commands the Future, Conquers the Past

Welcome to the year 2019!

In the midst of celebration with parties and fireworks all around the world, time for me to finish up with the reviews of latter half of my last year’s blog posts…

He Who Controls the Past, Commands the Future

Time, the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in apparently irreversible succession.

The past eventually becomes the present, and the present will greet its future. A chain of unending passage of eternity…

Screenshot_2018-01-01-14-48-46-909_com.aniplex.fategrandorder

Well let’s not think too deeply on this. XDc 2018 is coming to an end, and a new dawn is upon us!

I’ll take this opportunity to once again look back at what my past year has been through all my blog posts, starting from the first half of this year…

“福”从天降

As the fiery rooster makes its exit, the Terran canine hounding towards a new lunatic year!

And a very happy Lunar New Year greeting from everyone’s favourite Rider, Astolfo!

Screenshot_2018-02-14-06-40-35-459_com.aniplex.fategrandorder

For the uninitiated and those unfamiliar with the language, in the Chinese Fate community, Astolfo is given a pet name and most affectionately referred to as 阿福. The character 福 itself means good fortune. The term 福从天降 from the post title means “fortune falls from the sky” literally, which is translated as “may good fortune be blessed upon thee”.

Thus the pun with the trap above. XDc

A Season of Chaldean Love

A heart-throbbing celebration of the day of romantic rendezvous, a very Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!

Once again due to busy RL schedules, I’ve prepared nothing for this year’s blog entry… orz

Screenshot_2018-02-02-21-10-57-242_com.aniplex.fategrandorder

However, I do have lots of fun for the past two weeks on Fate/Grand Order’s very own Valentine’s event!

Once again, the chocolate craze ran amok in my Chaldea!

Fiery Rooster Entering a New Lunatic Year

The Monkey stopped going apes at the end of this season, making way for the Rooster to cock a doodle doo!

Please bear with me and excuse my animal puns… :P

LNY_2017_01

The guilt of neglecting Ranka-chan for a long time now has finally caught up to me, so I guess I should let her come out of the closet and be the kanban musume this year in the celebration of this prosperous Lunar New Year. =w=

Tama-chan can just stay back, relax and enjoy the festive season this time…

行く年: Conquering the Past

2016 is near to an end, although it is not entirely a pleasant year throughout, especially near the end.

Any way, let’s have a trip down the passing road for a glimpse of what happened during the year, the first half at least (I’ll save the 2nd half for next year… XDc)… ^w^

A Not So Pocket Sized X’mas

During my flight to Singapore for my pilgrimage to AFA16 last month, I read in one of the pamphlets at my seat about a certain Pokémon collaboration at Singapore Changi International Airport.

As soon as I reached my destination, I immediately set off to visit the locations around the airport’s various Terminals for a sight of these special decoration in celebration of Christmas and Pokémon. 

Pokemon_at_Changi_01

Pokémon found itself an international sensation during the launch of an app on Android as well as iOS earlier the year, in the form of an Augmented Reality game that lets you capture Pokémon every where…

Although the boom kinda died down now, the popularity still catches on.

Going Apes in This Lunatic Season

The Goat went by, and the Monkey arrived to bring a prosperous new year ahead!

Once again, it’s the dawn of a new lunar year, the annual festive season bringing along lots of reds decorations, Mandarin oranges, God of Prosperity, lion dances, fireworks, Ang Pows (Red Packets), visiting relatives and friends that ask you the same question every year… Oh well you know the rest… :P

Even the Petit’gguys are in the mood to start their own celebrations of showering in golds and plum flowers… XDc

A Tease of the Holy Night

Merry Christmas everyone! 

Nothing much this year due to an extremely narrow schedule for the weekend. 

Xmas_2015

Schoolmate’s wedding luncheon to attend to and a figure collectors’ event (3 events in total fall on the same day and time!!! Had to ditch the other 2 due to already committed on this one…) to take part as well…  

Nevertheless, here’s a shot of some of my newest Nendoroid collections that I’ve finally unbox, celebrating the Holy Night… ^^;

For the uninitiated, it is the Year of the Goat, or Sheep, or Ram, or whatever you like it to be… :P

Sorry for the reuse of the same neta, but I think the 4koma is very suitable for this Lunar New Year.

Celebrating a Phantastic Valentine’s

It’s been a trio of years since I’ve started my immersive play on the MMORPG Phantasy Star Online 2.

I’m surprised I’m still in this game, logging in religiously, daily… despite my usual insistent solo/single play tendencies in my gaming habits, rejecting many online games all this while.

pso20150208_144705_000

Anyway since the regular update from latter half of last month, the game lobby has been filled with giant bears, hearts and frilly decorations in celebration of Saint Valentine’s Day.

Yesterday was the Eve of Christmas, where many celebrated with their love ones and families, consuming large amount of KFC no doubt, especially in Japan, later known as KFC day/night today. XDc
