Movie – Black Panther

Mood:  impressed

“Black Panther” is on my must-watch movies of 2018 list. I got to see it last Friday. I was intrigued with the introduction of T’Challa in “Captain America: Civil War.” When Sam asked T’Challa if he liked cats, I rolled my eyes. As much as I love Steve Rogers, I think Civil War is not the kind of conclusion that I wanted for a Captain America trilogy. However, I was happy to see Steve at the end of the movie. So, I hope that “Avengers: Infinity War” will give Steve Rogers an appropriate ending to his story. But then again, I should keep my expectation low.

I am not a film critic, obviously. I mostly express what I feel after watching the movie. Is it just me or is there only one trailer for this movie?

Game – Pokemon ORAS Special Demo

Mood:  okay

A few weeks ago, I have downloaded “Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire” (ORAS) special demo from Nintendo 3DS Eshop. I thought that this demo would not be available anymore because the full games had been released for a long time now. I wanted to give the demo a try, it’s to fill the void in my heart. I am a little lazy to complete my Pokedex for “Pokemon Moon” and I always tell myself to only buy new game once a month. I will buy “Pokemon Alpha Sapphire” eventually. This February, I might buy a used copy of “Disney Magical World.”

Celebrating Savannah’s birthday

Mood: Excited photo excited.png excited

Savannah the zebra, is one of my favorite villagers in Animal Crossing. She moved to my AC Wild World town (played on an emu) a few years ago and I immediately love her. She’s so sweet and nice.

After I bought a physical copy of ACWW (and after a couple of resets because the bridge placement was horrible), she moved in to my ACWW town again! The bridge placement is still horrible but I take it because Savannah lives there. She was in boxes a few days ago but I told her not to move out. She did not even say anything about her move!

January 25th was her birthday and I was so excited to celebrate it with her. My plan is I want to celebrate Savannah’s birthday with Blaire (another favorite villager). I had my hopes up when Blaire was not at home. Then I call her using a megaphone just in case she was roaming around outside. She was outside… When I use my second character, she was with Savannah! When I visit Savannah again the second time as mayor, Blaire is partying with her! Unbelievable… I still love her.

Manhwa & Manga Collection

Mood:   nostalgic

About a few months ago, I watched several videos on YouTube about unboxing/haul/collection of manga. So I thought, why not I share my manhwa and manga collection in this blog too! My collection is very small to be honest and I collect both in English and Malay language. Sadly, the manhwa and manga selection here are rather limited so I read some online via fan translation.

I used to collect a few Doraemon manga in Malay language but due to my carelessness, I lost them. I love Doraemon but I’m such a terrible fan for losing the manga. 😦 He means a lot to me. I initially thought that Doraemon was female because in Malay dub, he was voiced by a woman. He did not sound feminine, it was more in the middle. Funny, I always say that my favorite colour is pink but most of my favorite characters are blue; Doraemon, Stitch, Sonic…

Game – Animal Crossing Pocket Camp

Mood: Excited photo excited.png excited

The Nintendo Direct footage was released in October(?) 2017. I thought it was super cute (I mean, come on it’s Animal Crossing!) and was so excited for it to be released. Then I found out the news that it was not supported for iPhones which run on iOS 10 and below. It’s no secret that I’ve been complaining about it, at that time I was not ready to upgrade my phone. In the end, I did upgrade mainly to play the game. “Animal Crossing Pocket Camp” was the first thing I thought of after I upgraded my phone. It was also the first new app I downloaded.

iPhone8 Plus Review + What’s On My iPhone?

Mood:  cold

Last year, my father was talking about the new iPhones that everyone (including myself) went crazy about. I jokingly told him that I need an upgrade. My iPhone5 and iPad2 got serious bad luck last year because the screen shattered due to my carelessness. They work fine but often freeze in the middle of gameplay and browsing. After obsessively watching the iPhone8/8 Plus unboxing and review videos on YouTube, I thought that I seriously need an upgrade.

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

Mood:  mellow

If I have to summarize the year 2017, I would have to say it was bittersweet. I am going to mention the highlights of the year. Most of them are fandom related because I have no life.

At the moment I am trying my best to grow my Animal Crossing collection. It’s no secret that I am trying my best in collecting the amiibo cards. I guess I will be collecting the ones that I really like because I only have one album. I still have a long way to go. I have to say I am about 40% completed my collection.

The latest amiibo figure that I got was Kicks. I haven’t got the chance to use his amiibo yet. I also managed to get Animal Crossing Welcome Amiibo bundle. I was glad that it was on sale. I got two figures; Isabelle (winter) and Digby, and three special amiibo cards; Rosie, Goldie and Stitches! I’ve scanned in Stitches in my brother’s ACNL town.

I got the chance to adopt Savannah from another player! I was so happy to see her roaming around in my town. Savannah resides in my Wild World town (it’s been months since I last visit the game!) and I came to love her. After that, I’ve scanned in Blaire (used to live in my Wild World town). My favorite girls!

Back in November, Animal Crossing Pocket Camp was released! I was upset that it does not support iPhone5 so I just watch some gameplay videos on YouTube. Then earlier this month, I’ve upgraded to an iPhone8 Plus! I can finally play the game! It’s addictive!

I was given a chance to take a one month break from work because of renovation. It was great. I never thought that I would need it. Speaking of breaks, I am planning on my trip to Kuala Lumpur if “EXO Planet #4 The ElyXiOn” concert will take place there, or NCT127’s fanmeeting or VIXX’s concert, whatever as long as it’s K-pop related. I have my EXO lightstick version 2 ready!

I managed to get all of NCT127’s mini-albums. Hooray! It’s funny that I bought the albums backwards; Cherry Bomb -> Limitless -> Firetruck. I got Taeyong’s photocard, Taeyong postcard(?) and Haechan’s photocard. It would be really funny if I got all Taeyong though. I wanted Jaehyun because he’s my bias but I generally love all of the members (cliche answer). I am excited for NCT127 to release their first full-length album one day. Maybe after their first album, they can finally have their own concert. I would love to attend their concert one day. I wonder what their lightstick will look like.

The biggest tragedy I ever experience in my years of being a K-pop and SM Entertainment’s fan is the lost of one of my idols. It’s the worst feeling than experiencing members leaving the group. It was a hot topic in the past days about SHINee Jonghyun’s tragedy. I was numb when I got the news. I was in denial and did not sleep well. I feel like I took him and SHINee for granted. I failed him. I cried for days, stopped updating my SNS other than liking the posts about him or SHINee. I wanted to talk with the closest people I know, but I was speechless and I believe they too were grieving on their own. So, I was on my own. It may take awhile for me to fully recover from this tragedy. I’ve been listening to SHINee’s songs especially their first album, “The SHINee World” is one of my favorite albums. Thank you for everything 김종현. I love you. I miss you.

That is all I can summarize my 2017. I pray for everyone to be happy and healthy in 2018. How was 2017 for you and what are your hopes in 2018?

Happy New Year Everyone!
