[Games] Games Summary Post!

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]

Disclaimer: This post is purely my own and does not represent the opinions of any parties/companies mentioned.

So here's my summary of games that I've played throughout the month. The games I play vary greatly and are highly dependent on whether it's currently school term or not :P

During school term, I prefer playing games of a shorter duration, like sudoku puzzles and hidden object games (HOG). During the holidays, I like to play on my 3DS or PC games that require longer commitment, like Legend of Heroes series.

What platform do I play my games on?

If you want to always play the latest game releases, Big Fish Games has a very large, up-to-date selection, releasing one game a day! However, I mostly play on HP Games, for they offer a free play on the full version of the game, and I usually finish a hidden object game within the free play itself. BHG however, offers only an hour free or the demo version. ): Plus, buying the games from there is a tad more expensive than HP Games unless you get into the Big Fish Game Club.

On to the games!

Bidadari Shoot

, by dollonstrings


 

 
Shassu! It's dollonstrings here again.
This time I dragged Amaya and several other unfortunate guinea pigs for a walk through light forest.

Amaya is truly photogenic!

Here are some pictures taken by photographer Zhou Zhenwei
This is the album, and here's his facebook page, so do give it a gander! Zwei is used to cosplay photoshoots, but since he expressed an interest in lolita fashion, I invited him to this forest shoot. =)
(info on outfits below the cut!)
Remember to click on the pictures to view their original size. =)

[Review] Naruko Raw Job's Tears Skincare Range

Disclaimer: This post is purely my own and does not represent the opinions of any parties/companies mentioned.

Naruko is an skincare brand that is selling really well at Watsons as well as on their online stores! I am sure it needs no introduction ^^

I bought this set of basic skincare products (3+1 set) from their Taiwan website. The price shown in the link provided is slightly different from the one I got because now they have included an additional freebie product.

[Personal] SNGS Moonlight Party

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]

Disclaimer: This post is purely my own and does not represent the opinions of any parties/companies mentioned.

It's a little late to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival, but better late than never! SNGS held their Moonilght Party last Saturday, and being an alumnus, it was a great opportunity to check out the new compound, meet up with friends and eat all the comfort food I used to eat back in secondary school.

If anyone wants to go back to SNGS for Orange Bowl Noodles, please ensure that you're in proper clothing (covered shoes, shorts of decent length, no spaghetti shirts etc) and only after 3PM. They only allow visitors after 3PM, and Uncle Pang finishes selling orange bowl by 4PM++, and is gone by 5PM.

New tumblr!

, by dollonstrings

Shassu! dollonstrings here. School has just started, and my head is whirling with pyruvates and osmolality.
                            
I've decided to post my random photos on tumblr instead of spamming this blog too much, so feel free to follow me here: http://hirarisa.tumblr.com/ !
Since I want to take photography more seriously and take more pictures from now on, I foresee a huge increase in the number of photos I'll be storing on my computer, unposted. u__u
There's going to be a halloween lolita meet this saturday, and the week after as well, so busybusybusy.
 
Excited to take photos of the pretty lolis! Amaya will be coming too. n__n

The picture above is that of an abandoned railway bridge.
I spent some time in my holiday looking for nice photoshoot locations, and from a quick online search, it seemed like the bridge at Sunset Way would be perfect. Alas, it is no longer open to the public, but fenced in with 'danger keep out' signs.

[Psych] The marshmallow test

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]

There are a lot of Youtube videos of the 'marshmallow test' or 'cookie test' or any variation that involves a person having to wait for a treat. If they manage to wait it out successfully without eating it, they get two treats!

And this test has its roots in Psychology, with the first experiment conducted by psychologist Walter Mischel of Stanford University. You can check out the original video filmed (in black and white~) in the YT video below:

Photo dump time!

, by dollonstrings

                                      
I was trying to figure out all the function on my camera and just generally familiarising myself with taking pictures. And why not get some pretty out of it while I'm at it? I got my two good-looking friends to walk around a garden and look pretty while I took pot-shots at them.

edit: note! The pretty model here is my aspiring actress friend Xiao Qi.
Here is her facebook page! http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/valerieyimei?fref=ts

[Assignment] Moonfest - A Mid-Autumn Celebration

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]

Disclaimer: This post is purely my own and does not represent the opinions of any parties/companies mentioned.

So just last week, I finished my next assignment from Esplanade: Moonfest concourse!

Overall, a good experience working at Esplanade so far! Listened and appreciated more music and performances from the traditional Chinese genre (been mostly J-pop now).

Pretty lanterns!

Read more under the cut to find out more about more about Moonfest, and what I did there!

Coco Ichi + OOTD

, by dollonstrings

Since I watched AKB48's 600 Seconds, I've wanted to try Coco Ichi's curry katsu rice~~
So I went there with Sandra yesterday. =) I still want to try the original one in Japan, but that will have to wait for next year's trip with Amaya and rage and awin-chan.

Why Coco Ichi? Because Mariko loves it!

I'm still looking for that hat she bought in the hat shop!
