TV – Castlevania S1

Mood:  scared

I am not familiar with “Castlevania” franchise but I think I’ve heard of that name before. When I was browsing through Nintendo 3DS Eshop, I saw a couple of “Castlevania” games on sale (I think it was). At that time I was looking for “Animal Crossing Wild World” (sadly that one is unavailable). Earlier this year, an animated series of “Castlevania” was announced. It got me interested a little with the concept, but when they say that it was Rated-R; I was on the fence about it. I’m not really into it, also I’m not into anime anymore. Maybe I’m just selective of what I’m watching.

Later on, Netflix uploaded the trailer. I saw it and thought that it was cool. I followed Nintendo fan accounts so they definitely share the news about it. Then earlier this month, the anime was released. My twitter feed went crazy and I checked people responses about it. Most of them were not happy that it was only 4 episodes. Then I was like, maybe 4 episodes is not such a bad idea. So I decided to check it out after work. I had no idea that there are so many “Castlevania” games and was produced by Konami. Maybe I’ll check out the gameplay when I feel like it.

Birthday Weekend

Mood: 46_Enthralled happy

My birthday passed weeks ago but here are some pictures! Thank you to family and friends for the greetings. It was also my brother’s, Baekhyun’s and Naomi Scott’s (Power Rangers 2017’s Kimberly Hart) birthday too!

 My brother decided to treat me to see Guardians Of The Galaxy. All I can say is that, I love the songs and the third act of the movie. It was bittersweet but I love it. I guess that’s probably the first time I ever cried during an MCU movie.

 In-game me also celebrated her birthday. My favorite girls came to the party. How sweet of them. Becky was suppose to move at the end of the month, but she decides to stick around on her own. I wanted her to move because her house is at the wrong place. Maybe next time. I like Becky! It’s just that her house placement rubs me the wrong way.

 My friends kept wanted me to join them for dinner after I said that I’m off work by 10pm. We went to a new cafe (closes in one hour when we arrived LOL) and ordered sloppy joe beef wedges, I guess that’s what it’s called. It was so good! If I get the chance to go there again, I’ll probably order this one.

 Then we went to another restaurant which has an extending closing hour, and there were still a lot of people there at the time. I decided to order macaroni chicken salad.

The owl bag and pink watch were gifts from my parents. I have no idea who told them that I love owls (I love bears too) but hey, I’m not complaining. I love this bag. A little small though, the straps are short but I love it!

 The Captain America building blocks was a gift from my boss. He actually had no idea that he gave it to me on my birthday LOL! The finish product looks so cute! I misplaced a few parts at first. Finally, a Wonder Woman mopeez was a gift to myself. There were a few mopeez dolls available; Superman, Aquaman and Supergirl. I decided to get Wonder Woman because her move comes out later this week! Yay!!

Speaking of Wonder Woman, I’m so excited for the movie! I can’t believe the day is approaching close! I did not watch anymore trailers or TV spots after the release of Origin Trailer.  I will bring my Wonder Woman doll with me when I see the movie. I did that when I went to see Captain America Civil War last year and Funko Pop Batfleck for The Lego Batman movie. It’s Ramadan now. I will probably see Wonder Woman probably at 8pm or 9pm. Here’s hoping for the Wonder Woman popcorn and drink combo!

That’s all from me for now. Are you excited for Wonder Woman? Will you see it on the opening night?

Movie – Power Rangers (2017)

Mood: Excited photo excited.png so happy!

Go, go, Power Rangers!

How nostalgic! I remember that there were people out there who wanted for the new Power Rangers movie to suck, but jokes on you! Okay, in the end it all comes down to taste and preferences but this movie does.not.suck! Maybe that’s the nostalgia talking, but I’m being serious here. I love the movie. I had a lot of fun and plan on seeing it the second time! 100%! Yes it was that good (for me)! I want the movie to be available in DVD/Blu-Ray immediately!

A little history, I was introduced to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers sometime before or after I was in Kindergarten. It was a 7pm/7:30pm weekend block for kids. If I’m not mistaken Doraemon was at 7pm and Power Rangers was at 7:30pm. Anyway, I was immediately hooked after the first episode and my parents and grandparents just let me have the TV all to myself at that hour. I ship Jason and Kimberly together before I know what shipping meant! Team Jimberly! They were always together, so cute and it just makes sense to me. Their influence was so strong, I arranged my red and pink colour pencils next to each other. Oh I’m serious.

Beware: SPOILERS and plenty of ramblings!

On and off ‘relationship’ with Harry Potter

Mood: nostalgic

Between later last year and earlier this year, I was bored out of my mind at work. I can’t constantly play ACNL during work, so I start considering which movies I should watch. A few months prior, my cousins discussed with me that they have completed watching all eight Harry Potter movies. Then it dawned on me that it’s been so long since I talk and read about it. I kind of missed it. So, I decided to watch the movies from the beginning.

I have an on and off relationship-ish with Harry Potter. Back in school, only the cool kids read Harry Potter (at least that’s how I remember it). I was curious, very curious so I borrowed the first book from a classmate, she’s nice. Since I’m a casual fan of magic, I was delighted with the first book. I had no idea that the story was set during modern time but Hogwarts was during traditional times, which kind of makes sense. It described how different London and Hogwarts are. Then the first movie came out later in the year. It had huge impact! Harry Potter stationary, bags and toys were everywhere! I played the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone game on PlayStation which I really loved but never get to finish it. I read the books but stop sometime after the fifth book was released. I had no idea why I stopped. Probably anime influence was super strong at the time and I was in the Naruto fandom (I left later on because it got too much to me). Okay, maybe I’m the one who have an issue here.

I watched Screen Junkies’ Movie Fights – Harry Potter episode before I started to rewatch Harry Potter movies. This was to celebrate the release of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them movie worldwide. I enjoyed watching the debate and it got me excited about the fandom all over again. I remember a time when the Fantastic Beasts movie trailer was released during MTV Movie Award 2016 (I think), Harry Potter theme song (I don’t know the exact name of the song as I’m typing this, please forgive me) was at the end of the trailer and it gave me goosebumps. Man, do I miss that song.

After I completed watching the movies, at first I was numb (because there was a lot to take in) and then happy (because I feel accomplished, hehe…). I returned home from work to find whether I still have my Harry Potter books. To my delight, I still have them but to my horror, I lost the second book. When I browsed through the pages, they were yellow now (obviously), more than 10 years old and slightly battered because I remember I used to bring the first book everywhere alot of time. Right now, I’m in the process of re-reading the first book, and yes I bring it everywhere with me. It’s a little hard to juggle reading and playing ACNL since the game is in real time. I’m not too fond of time travelling in game, I mean I did a few times but it’s not favorable.

Oh right, I forgot to mentioned about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I did spoil myself on the story. Albus Potter was in Deathly Hallow Part 2 movie and I have a soft spot for him. I understand his worries at the end of the movie. I can’t say much about it since I did not read the book, only rely on information from wiki. It’ll be a while for me to get back to reading the books again. I mean, if I really can’t find Camber of Secrets, then I have to buy it again. The cover will probably be different. 😦 Speaking of the books, I saw a copy of Philosopher’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets illustrated books in Malay language a couple of months ago. They’re expensive but pretty.

I registered at Pottermore a few days back and I got sorted in Hufflepuff. It kind of makes sense to me. According to the website, my wand is an Alder, dragon heartstring, 12 and three-quaters inches. That’s interesting. I haven’t tried the Patronus quiz so I’m excited to see the result. I did try the same quiz on PlayBuzz; I was sorted in Ravenclaw and my patronus was a komodo dragon. 😯

I guess that is all from me for this entry. Are you a fan of Harry Potter fandom? Did you get sorted via Pottermore? What is your patronus?

Haul – Animal Crossing Amiibo Figure Isabelle (Summer)

Mood: jubilant

Finally, after one month of waiting, Isabelle amiibo figure arrived! Funny story, the postal coupon(?) arrived before I go to work and I have no idea! My brothers did not even say anything about it, keeping it a hush-hush until I return home. I was surprised to see the small box on the table. That was the sweetest thing ever, from my brothers of all people!

I’m sorry that I did not take a proper before picture. I was so excited that I immediately and carefully rip it open.

I was browsing through Play Asia last month and I saw that Japanese Animal Crossing Isabelle Summer amiibo figure was at USD3.99 at the time and there’s no way I’m going to say “No”. After thorough calculation, I immediately bought the figure! Shipping took a while and kind of expensive. Is it just me or has the shipping cost for online shopping just skyrocketed? It took about one month for it to arrive. While waiting, I watched a bunch of Animal Crossing related unboxing videos on YouTube. Is that weird?

The figure looks so small than how I imagined it. It’s about the size of my palm. It was well-made, the paint job looks amazing and Isabelle looks absolutely cute! 😀

I immediately scanned Isabelle amiibo to the campsite. Her RV looks so cute! I really love how it looks and her items in the RV. Her motorbike looks so cute. I remember I saw a video of her using the motorbike in Mario Kart, if I’m not mistaken.




That is all from me. Do you guys collect amiibo figures from Animal Crossing or other games? Did you scan all of them in your ACNL game?
