New toy, Nanoblock!

Isn’t Eevee cute?

It is looking really good, although I’m using the Android app and there are some minor bugs, but the new features! The clean layout! I’m in love!

Can’t wait to check out the Doit.im website version and desktop client when I get home.

I have not forgotten this blog!

But things have been quite busy for me, and I was being sick or not feeling well a lot, so didn’t really have time to make posts.

I know I have yet to update the DN collection title guides with the newest collection title that is for PVP, but with the new UI for the Title Collection Book, it’s so much easier to check the title requirements ingame. That’s why I have decided that I will wait until there are a few more new title collections before updating.

Instead, I’ll try to post more. Like other guides, game reviews… stuff. Keyword of the day: try.

Excerpts from a book called Disorder in the American Courts

Seluna says: I saw this on Facebook and had a hard time trying to not laugh out loudly in office. Posting this to share to anyone who visits, and most importantly for boyfriend whose business trip brought him into the range of the Great Firewall of China.

These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while the exchanges were taking place.

ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?
WITNESS: He said, ‘Where am I, Cathy?’
ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?
WITNESS: My name is Susan!

Happy New Year, onwards to 2013!

With the Mayan Calendar’s thingy going on, there must be some who thought we won’t be making it to 2013. But we did, and while the local weather was being spoilsport for good half of the day, 2013 arrived safely with a blast (the fireworks were very loud).

May the next 365 (or is is 366?) days be mostly good happy ones for everyone! And a big thank you for dropping by during 2012, it’s been great!

Busy peasy beesy, and happy holidays!

I think the lack of updates is quite noticeable. Unlike what I previously said, it wasn’t because of NaNoWriMo. There was a change in my work situation and I became like busier starting from mid-November, and then after that I took part in the CBT of a new online game (新仙剑 Online) and a major project sucked all my time away. Sometimes I barely even remember to watch K. My NaNo… let’s not talk about that. ._.

Good news, I have more stability in my life now. Bad news, whenever there’s a big project at my work, I don’t have much time for myself, much less blogging. Well, not that I blog often anyway…

I’m looking forward to the holidays because of the amount of days I don’t have to work (hurray!), so a very happy holidays (merry christmas, happy yuletide, etc) to everyone!

PS. I’m gonna go dig out the snowing plugin and activate it for 2 weeks or so. Sorry if it causes the pages to lag. >.<

K anime, 5th Episode Impression

I’m typing this as I rewatch this episode during the marathon now.

K anime, 4th Episode Impression

Argh, late again because of mood issues. I managed to watch the Live simulcast and another repeat and the marathon today, oh yeaaaah~

This episode’s focus is on Kuroh and Yashiro’s plot progression, with more indepth look into the school life background that Yashiro has. And just a wee bit on Scepter-4 and Homura that pulls them towards the Yashiro’s plotline.

K anime, 3rd Episode Impression

Late with this because I was sick, and was not very motivated to do much other than sleep and rest. I’ll try to write what I remember, which is surprisingly quite a lot.

This episode has more explanations, but as usual it brings about more mysteries. This episode also has quite a bit of BL fanservice (unless it’s the subber who deliberately twist it that way, but I doubt it) so the inner fangirl in me is happy.

#RIPAmanda – Amanda Todd

#RIPAmanda – Amanda Todd

Posting again, because this is an issue that really touches me.

I cannot help but think… if I was a less cautious person… if I was careless for just a few minutes… had the internet been as deeply-connected in people’s life when I was in Secondary School… could something stupid and small that I do turn out to be the worse nightmare ever?

My heart broke for this beautiful girl who got what she didn’t deserve. She made mistakes, but who doesn’t? Her mistakes were never allowed to be forgotten. Can you imagine that, not being able to get away from it after so long? I would have taken my life a lot earlier than her, I am not that strong.

Stop bullying. It’s in human’s nature to be amused or pleasure (yes, I used this word intentionally) by bad things happening to others, but we have hearts and emotions and feelings. We have a working brain that should know what’s right and what’s wrong. We know what hurts us. We have the power to stop, think, feel before we act. We have the power to tell people to stop.

Nobody deserves that. Nobody deserves to have their life ruined because of a mistake, or how different(UNIQUE) they are.

And news flash, nobody is immune from bullying. I can do it to you and make your life utter hell, just for my amusement. I am capable of that, and you will be surprised what a wonderful tool the Internet is for destruction. It is not difficult at all, all I need is some personal information of your that I can easily get.

I choose not to.

Share this, sign this, so we can tell people to choose not to.

K anime, 2nd Episode Impression

Managed to catch the simulcast! Rushed home for it but still missed the first 5 minutes, so I woke up approx. 5 hours later to watch the repeat at 6.30am.

I will be keeping my little review spoiler-free, so I won’t be revealing much plot, just my impressions.

Episode 1, first impression of K

I haven’t been this hyped over an anime for a long while. There should be no surprise that this anime ‘K’ that I’m crazy about has a whole bunch of bishounens and voiced by several A-List seiyuus (Ono Daisuke, Takahiro Sakurai, Tomokaze Sugita, etc).

I missed the Live simulcast with Japan on Animax Asia but there are a lot of repeat telecast and I caught the 6.30am one just now. I have no doubts I will be trying to watch the same episode again a few times.
