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!

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.

The day is here, Wonder Woman movie finally released worldwide! Every fans out there are excited for the movie. Can you all believe that it’s been 10 months (more or less) since we last seen a DCEU movie in the cinema? We waited so long for another DCEU movie, but it’s worth it. Then later in November, Justice League movie will come out!

Thank you Warner Bros. Thank you Patty Jenkins. Thank you Gal Gadot. Thank you to all of the cast and crew. After watching the movie, I feel a whole new confidence in me.

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?
