Back from Hiatus…

Hey everyone! Thanks for all of the comments. I haven’t got time to read them all now but I will reply to them as soon as I can. Sorry for the sudden hiatus… Life and work have caught up with me and I have been dealing with them until now! Back for good this time. Playing Lucian Bee’s RESURRECTION SUPERNOVA on the PSP as of now, so expect a review soon ^^!

Tokyo Kawaii TV!

Do you like Japanese fashion? Yes? Then I would highly recommend you Tokyo Kawaii TV!

Take me to Tokyo!

Official English link for the show here. This weekly program is all about Japanese fashion for girls, made by girls! It is presented by the ultra cute singer and actress Beni and the very handsome and CAN’T UNDERSTAND WHY HE DOES NOT LOOK 40+ ojii-san-like Ikki Sawamura. I think they make a great combo! Beni is trendy and young, whereas Ikki looks cool and is up for the show, but he knows NOTHING about fashion and often makes a fool out of himself! He makes perverted jokes and says things that are inappropriate.. just like an ojii-san ;;^^.

Hakuouki Bath Salt – Hijikata Toshizou & Saito Hajime

Used Hijikata’s and Saito bath salts last week. Each packet comes with a sticker and two separate packs of bath salts. The sticker is printed with the line that the character is supposed to say before you go to a mixed-sex onsen with them *nose-bleeds*!

Mixed-sex onsen is not something of the past: we still get them nowadays! All the onsen hotels I have stayed in before contain mixed-sex onsen! I DID NOT want to go to one at all! If Souji were to come with me then that would be a different story XDD;;.

Catching up with Life after the Holiday

March flew by so quickly! From mid March to the end of March, my friends came over and I took them around London and Rome. Travelling was more exhausting than work because you have to be focussed from morning till late evening. After they have left, I went back to work and I needed time to readjust myself to pressure and weekend work. Now I have caught up with life once again – I promise that I will start updating regularly again ;;^^. To start off, some photos from my trip!

Salami and spinach pizza with A LOT of cheese!

St Peter Basilica - one of the grandest buildings I have seen!

Hakuouki Bath Salt – Toudou Heisuke

Final Fantasy 13 and the guidebook arrived last Tuesday hence the lack of update! Mid-way through – on Chapter 8 at the moment. At the rate I am playing, it will probably take me a week or so for me to finish the story. Enjoying it so much that I don’t want it to end!

My Hakuouki bath salts arrived last Friday! Ordered them two weeks ago from Animaxis. They were a little slow but they packaged my items very well, with bubble-wrap over my bath salts and a cardboard used as a support (the usual over the top Japanese packaging ;;^^).

There is a bath salt set for every chase-able male characters in Hakuouki. Each comes with a different flavour:

  • Hijikata Toshizou – Cherry Blossom
  • Okita Souji – Aloe
  • Saitou Hajime – Lavender
  • Toudou Heisuke – Jasmine
  • Harada Sanosuke – Yuzu
  • Kazama Chikage – Camellia

More ACG-related Randomness (and Hakuouki X Durarara = Awesomeness)

Want to write a little about life before my next review post, which will probably be on Hakuouki (surprise surprise ;;^^): either Hijikata’s route or Saito’s route. I am enjoying Hijikata’s route a lot! Didn’t think that I would like it that much because he treats the protagonist like a child (well he is 28 and he acts older than his age), but after the mid-way point you get to see his strength and his manliness as he struggles to support Shinsengumi. It is hard to not fall for him from that point onwards! It doesn’t help that he is so pretty too…

Found an amazing fan-made video of Durarara X Hakuouki! Two of my favourite series together, love it *_*~

ACG-related Randomness after Work

Had to go to work for a bit yesterday afternoon. When I left the office, a bus passed by with big Final Fantasy 13 posters stuck on both sides! Had to take a picture of it with my awful camera on my iPhone before the bus drove away!

Excuse the bad quality @_@

I am very looking forward to FF13! Some people complained that the story and gameplay are linear, but this is good for me because I am too lazy to use my brain after work and during weekends ;;^^. Can’t wait till Tuesday evening! Are you looking forward to FF13?
