I think I might be one of the few who got Figma Kagami for just Misao’s head. =D Misao-chan is soooooo darn cute~!
Kagami will probably never see the light of day… at least on this blog. =P
Gotta find some time to bring out all the figma girls to have some fun. ^^
Since today was a rainy day, I thought that I should post something along those lines. =D
Picture from the previous meetup at Chinatown. It was raining and we were trapped at the Red Dot Museum. Konata decided to make full use of the opportunity to have some fun while the rest of us just waited for the rain to stop. =)
Credit goes to Nyanko-sempai for risking the downpour to catch Konata in action.
Little Nendochi Konata has become my personal cheerleader. Looking at her just makes me happy.
It will probably another 2 weeks before I start breathing again.
The tiny Usami-chan is actually a Reisen Udongein Inaba limited edition mini figure by Ichijinsha ! Thanks to Martin (via FB) from Animatic Figmation for pointing her identity out. =)
Little Reisen-chan got to ride the MRT today!
And she tries to get comfy in this spot.
There was a long ride ahead of her. ^^
Been caught up with a whole mountain of school work lately, and it’s not going to end anytime soon. As such, instead of going on hiatus completely, I’ll be giving myself the luxury of taking a bit of time everyday to make a simple picture post. Then maybe, at the end of each week, I’ll make a major post out of all my bits and pieces for an entry on Figure.fm. Sort of like Comrade Kodomut’s “A week in the life of figures”.
I think that it is important for me to continue pursuing this budding passion for figure photography as a way of expressing my creative self. But for now, I’ll have to prioritize my studies as I have a responsibility and commitment to fulfill. And hopefully, when I’ve more free time, I’ll be able to branch out and recapture my other passions.
Putting all that melodrama aside, I shall start the ball rolling with this picture of Nendo Puchii Usamimi Yuki. I was at MOS burger in Orchard Central today and took quite a lot of pictures. =) It’s a really nice place to park and take some pictures! There were some interesting displays and the dollies I brought along had quite a bit of fun with the colourful decorations.
Edited the picture and typing all this from Netbook Sebby-chan. I’m surprised Sebby-chan didn’t K.O from running Photoshop. =) Looks like it’ll be fun to edit pictures on the move. Nyanko-sempai and I were considering the possibility of setting up a live-feed of images for next week’s Mid-Autumn Festival Meetup.
Do you think it’ll be a cool idea to have a live streaming of images ?
Tsukikeki Matsuri is coming up! Go read Comrade Kodomut’s post for greater details of this #03 meetup session.
For those on the mailing list, I’ll be sending out an email later with more details. ^^”
(Gotta finish assignments first. *cries)
Just bought a new netbook at Comex. Singapore has massive IT fairs all four quarters of the year to cater to the technology hungry population. They usual last the whole weekend (thursday – sunday) and having thousands of people flocking to the event, hoping to score a deal. According to online research (aka Hardwarezone), the best times to visit an IT fair is at its beginning and ending. On day one, most of the vendors will be stocked up with the hottest products on offer, making it easy to pick up products without having to fight the weekend crowd and worry about the items running out of stock. The last day is for bargain hunters who will be able to snap up old stock that the vendors are desperate to let go at low low prices.
I’m not fond of crowds so I went on Thursday to check out the deals for a netbook. My lovely Macbook Pro is still hale and hearty, but weighs a tonne. It’s battery life has also dwindled to nothingness and buying a new battery would cost a bomb. Thus, I was thinking of picking up a lightweight pc so that I could bring it around town. I originally wanted a netbook from Lenovo, HP or MSI. But when I got the chance to prowl the grounds and check out the quarry on display, I fell in love with the Eee PC seashell. Like a foolish moth to a flame, I kept drifting back to the Asus booths and finally decided to committed Eee PC 1005-HA (Seashell).
The netbook was priced at $699 and came with a free external dvd drive. Since I paid by NETS, there was a free ram upgrade to 2gb and came with a keyboard protector too! There was also some lucky dip thing where I got two UP t-shirts (not great quailty, but just right to wear during ceramics class and not worry about ruining clothes. ^^). Overall, it was a decent deal. I went around checking out the prices at different dealers and some wanted an additional $69 for the ram upgrade!
I also hooked it up with a mobile broadband plan from Starhub. Their services have improved over the years and I love the fact that they reward long term subscribers. After getting my netbook, I popped over to the Starhub service center next to my house and updated all my services. Renewed cable, mobile, broadband services and signed up for the mobile broadband. I also got a new Sony Erisson handphone to replace my psychotic Sams*** phone. It was an extra $48 to get the phone but the customer service officer that processed my new services was nice and waived the cost (he redeemed a $50 voucher somehow). Forgot to take any pictures of the usb modem thingie. =x
Traditionally, I have always named my gadgets. =) And this time, I’ve decided to call my lovely netbook “Sebastian” after the akuma butler from Kuroshitsuji.
Isn’t the name just perfect?
Neuro: Wahaha… … There has been no mystery for me to feed on lately as my useless servant Yako has been slacking off. It’s time to teach her a lesson.
Today I went shopping and brought home something special for my Nendoroids. =)
Because I’m procrastinating, I’m going to do some belated photo blogging. =)
Starting with Natsu Matsuri 09. It was by sheer luck that I managed to get tickets from some dear twitter/lj friend of friends. And it allowed us to jump the queue and dive straight into the festivities.
This year’s event was blessed with clear skies and lovely weather! (A positive contrast to last year’s wet and dreary affair.) And because we could go in early, we managed to catch a glimpse of this awesome sky scape.
