About 20 years ago, I had a Batman and Superman plastic dolls. I don’t remember how I got it exactly; either it was a buy-one-free-one promotion going on or I just can’t decide that my parents had to pay for both dolls. Then I played with them when dad had to send our old car to the workshop. I think I made Batman fly :lol:.
I asked my parents when we will have a little vacation (like 8-10 hours out of country vacation, just across the border by car) because I want to buy a Batman v Superman funko pop. I always wanted one since last year and I saw that it was on sale in January at Toys R Us. They managed to get one for me last week. That’s probably the only thing I’m going to ask from them this year 😆 My birthday came early this year :lol:.
Wow, that’s the longest title in this blog.
My mother called on Tuesday that the postman has left a coupon(?) informing me that I need to collect my package from the post office. I knew right then and there that the Animal Crossing Amiibo Card album and Isabelle card which I bought from an Australian YouTuber has arrived. I’ve been thinking about it for weeks, 😆 I asked my brother to collect it since I’m off work after 6pm.
Meivu uploaded a post on her Instagram story that she was selling her Series 1&2 albums. I knew I had to get it! Isabelle looked so adorable on the center of the cover! I’m so thankful that she did this. It’s amazing despite the price is on the expensive side. I did not mind it much since I really wanted it and amiibo cards are sold out here (I bought the very last pack from the game store! 😯 )
Altogether, I’ve owned 8 amiibo cards. I would like to buy more cards from Meivu since she has several doubles. As much as it is fun to collect all of the cards, it’s actually too expensive so I just cut down to several cards that I really, really like. I do plan on collecting every single Isabelle cards out there (or anything of Isabelle, honestly) because she’s my ultimate bias (I’m sure she’s everyone’s ultimate bias) and all of the Sanrio x ACNL collaboration cards. Animal Crossing products sell like hotcakes everywhere!
When I have the internet broadband back up at home, I may post several pictures of Isabelle’s home which I have decorated for her in ACHHD, on here and on tumblr. It’s not that impressive but my idea is not original at all. I give Isabelle as house near the beach because she deserves a break from work. Maybe I’ll change the location later 😆
Happy New Year 2017 everyone! I hope everyone had a great get-together with family and friends during the countdown.
I did not do much, just play a little bit of ACNL, go to work and counting down to new years in ACNL haha! The suspense was killing me though because I often read other players’ ACNL diary blogpost of sort and I really wanted to be a part of this celebration in the game.
On the final two weeks of 2016, I’ve been fangirling on a semi-new (LOL) K-pop boyband called “NCT” (sub-units are NCT U, NCT 127 and NCT Dream). I got curious about them after watching an episode of Weekly Idol which they came as guests. I listened to their songs; “7th Sense” and “Firetruck” but I did not get to know all of the members. I’m only familiar with Taeyong because after SM Entertainment’s twitter post his picture (at that time he was introduced as a member of SM Rookies), I saved it in my iPad because he looks so cute and he’s Jaejoong(JYJ) and Luhan doppelganger! (now that picture was deleted because I need plenty of memory space and I never actually use his picture as my wallpaper LOL). Jaehyun (EXO’s Suho doppelganger) is my bias but I love everyone, even the ones who have not officially debut yet.
From there, I began searching for more videos of them and came across with their variety show called “NCT Life” which currently has four seasons now. The boys are so funny and adorable and I was impressed that they were not awkward for being in front of the camera. Then I discovered it was because they had a lot of video series in their trainee days as SM Rookies. That’s why they were fun to watch. Now I kind of want to collect their physical albums and some merchs (official and fanmade).
I attended Korean Festival on Oct 21st 2016. It was a three days event and I was glad that Friday was my day-off.
The highlight of the event was K-Tigers’ performances. I wanted to watch them in the first place and my budget was tight so I did not spend much. I think I only bought a Bungeo ppang (fish-shaped bread) that day…and a drink because I was so thirsty after screaming like a loony when K-Tigers performed my favorite songs.
The bungeo ppang was great. I really loved the ice-cream! It was soft and the toppings I had were crushed peanuts and sprinkles and they also added marshmallow. The marshmallow were a little hard though. I thought they were super soft. I requested the big size bungeo ppang so that I can share with my brothers. Initially, I wanted the nutella filling but it was sold out so my brother wanted the red bean filling instead. I chose vanilla flavored ice-cream. I would like to try another again but this time maybe I will opt for a small size. The small size has no filling, just the bread and ice-cream.
There were mini Korean film festival (or showings), food booth, electronics booth, photo booth and art booth (those are what I can recall). No, I did not take any pictures of myself at the festival because I don’t like doing it. I guess that habit cause an irritation towards my friends (or everyone else) who are the selfie freaks.
K-Tigers performed at 8 o’clock (if I’m not mistaken). People already went nuts when they arrived on stage…or peeking at the them from backstage. I recorded the video until my storage was full. Yea, that was not a good sign and I missed their BTS’ “Boys In Luv” performance (I watched it bunch of times on YouTube though). I literally screamed when they performed EXO’s “Overdose” and “Growl.” I did not expect that at all, I mean I did expect them to perform maybe at least one dance number. Can you imagine how I would behave if my favorite idols performed live on stage? I’d probably faint but I hope I won’t, or else I would miss the whole experience. I’ve posted a few K-Tigers’ videos on my Instagram. Now I understand the hardship the fansite admins out there had to face when they want to take good pictures/videos of the idols. They have mad skills, and better gadgets of course. My 16GB iPhone 5 just doesn’t cut it, haha!
It was a great experience for me. I would love to attend this event again next year, maybe I’ll have enough money to spend just at the festival. Maybe K-Tigers can perform again next year…or maybe…they can invite K-Pop idols as well. I suggest VIXX! (That’s quite a big wish)
Have any of you ever attend Korean festival (or any cultural festival)? How was your experience ? How big or small the event was?
*As of 26/10/2016, one member from K-Tigers liked my video on IG! Probably because he was at the center, haha!*
Are you ready for a Mystic Chat?
You were looking for a game app just to kill some time and stumbled upon an app called “Mystic Messenger”. It sounded interesting so you downloaded it. Once you opened it up you found yourself chatting with someone nicknamed “Unknown”. “Unknown” persuaded you to go to some studio apartment. As soon as you walked in to the apartment, your app is suddenly connected to a mystic group chat with attractive guys!? After a long chat, they ask you to join their secret party planning association called R.F.A…
Pixelberry has released a new app called; “Choices: Stories You Play.” It reminds me of this app called “Episode: Choose Your Story” (I love both apps by the way) because it’s obviously a visual novel game. I downloaded this on my iPhone but then I deleted it due to storage issue and downloaded the app on my iPad instead. I’ve passed the first chapter of all three novels until I decided to fully concentrate on “The Crown & The Flame.”
“Kenna’s rivals stole her kingdom, but now the time has come for her to raise an army, destroy her enemies, and reclaim her crown.”
After playing the first chapter, I immediately fell in love. Probably because I can immediately start a romantic relationship between the main characters. Yes, I ship them already! The main characters are; Kenna Rys, a princess who escaped her kingdom when it was under attack, and Dominic Hunter, an orphan who discovered that he has fire power. They were childhood friends. I like that at the beginning of the first chapter, we have the option to make Kenna and Dom a couple. I shipped them from the moment I chose Kenna to kiss him when they were sparring together (I’m glad that it didn’t cost diamonds to choose that option). Not long after, the kingdom of Stormholt was under attack and Kenna and Gabriel (and Prince Tevan, I spent diamonds to save him and he became an ally) had to flee from her kingdom. Dom had to stay in order to help them escape. When Dom helped one of the maids, he discovered that he has the ability to summon fire.
I did not make much premium choices because my iTunes credit was low and I had to collect some from playing other stories. If I’m not mistaken, I made 2 premium choices in this and only 1 on “Most Wanted” (another favorite story of mine). One was rescuing Prince Tevan’s life (I liked him, he seemed nice) and another was Dom confessing to Trystan Blake on his relationship with Kenna (he asked and I was interested so I made that choice and I’m selfish like that hehe..)
This was a very good story from start to finish, in my opinion anyway. Maybe because the story is set in a different era but it’s not that heavily classic either. It kind of reminds me of a TV show called “Merlin,” it sets in a medieval era but the way they speak did not sound that classic and not too modern either. I guess that’s the best way I can put it.
I got a little bored because I only have one 3DS game so I decided to go to a little game store in town to check out what 3DS games were available. There wasn’t much, unfortunately. The one that stood out to me was “Lego Batman 3 Beyond Gotham.” It was more of an impulse purchase really, haha.
