[Games] November Games Summary!

, 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 November. 

It's still school term, so games are of a shorter duration, like hidden object games (HOG). There's enough fun in there to keep you satisfied with breaks from studying (:

I also have my fair share of wrong game choices, so you will see that the time taken is unknown because I gave up on the game halfway xD

IT fair~

, by dollonstrings

  Two of my friends were working at SITEX this weekend, so I decided to drop by.
Amaya was working in her meido as usual, helping to promote Anibee. Signing up got me a goodie bag with three Doraemon toys and some manga, including Mask Rider. Ama-chan pics are under the cut. ;)

  Okay, so my ulterior motive was really to nab a hard drive, since mine is spoilt. The smallest available nowadays is 500gb, and it goes for the same price that my 120gb hard drive went for two years ago. My dad asked me why I didn't get a 1tb hard drive. I told him that by the time I need 1tb of space, it will be the same price as the 500gb one is now.

  I do foresee needing more space as I take more photographs, but what with study and work, there's not been time for photoshoots. ):

[Photoshoot] Street Angels!

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]

It is a very busy month for Amaya here! Attended AFA 2012, had the most awesome backstage experience and met a gazillion people, Sanrio's Meet & Greet session to have a Hello Kitty manicure, and also a photoshoot for Street Angels by Noriaki-san!

So what is Street Angels?

It is a project spearheaded by Noriaki Tsuchiya-san, which is a free iPhone app that functions as your phone clock! There is an 'angel' (girl) for every minute of the day, and another angel for every day of the year! In essence, this app will showcase 60mins x 24hrs = 1440photos of different girls/angels (:


My -real- birthday XD

[Anime][Music] Macross Frontier

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]

A few weeks months back, I finally managed to finish the whole anime series of Macross Frontier and the two movies (The False Songstress & Wings of Goodbye). Introduced to this series by dollonstrings, I was primarily attracted to the music of the show rather than the content itself. But I decided to watch the show after all.

After watching the series, I watched the full lives of the Macross F tours, with the most recent one released in 2010, I think, called cosmic cuune.

I enjoyed their music so much, that I bought two CDs from Yesasia. Check them out below!

Overall, I would rate this series a 4/5 (a bit higher because of its catchy music). Not for kids. Moderate fan service content.

Spoilers ahead!

[Event/Assignment] AFA 2012 Part 2

AFA 2012 Part TWO!

This post will have more personal tidbits and bits of conversation I had with everyone backstage. Mostly on Day 3 since on Day 2 I was accompanying Team Thai around, and I was more shy XD Actually everyone is really friendly and you can just talk to them ((:

Have made tiny pacts with people regarding travel, cosplay & some other things. ^^

I will have to say that I have quite a few private photos (& many more private conversations & tidbits) I will keep to myself. To me, meeting so many cosplayers is something I want to share with everyone, but also is a very personal event because I made so many friends ^_^

Check out the pictures after the break ^^


My friend and I (: Thanks for accompanying Team Thai around as well!

[Event/Assignment] AFA 2012 Part 1

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]

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

Hey all! Did you catch the spectacular event happening at Singapore Expo on the 9th, 10th & 11th November? Anime Festival Asia boasts itself to be the biggest, most happening anime, manga & cosplay related event in Singapore! Spanning over 3 days, it features booths, special merchandise, several celebrity guests, concerts & more!

However, I wasn't there to play :P I was working backstage as helper for the Thailand representatives for the Asia Regional Cosplay Championships.

Expect spazzing, random photos & (hopefully) more camwhore photos!

So so so blessed really, for very obvious reasons below. Hint: Had decent conversations with Kaname & Reika & Judy & Mikoto & Tsukasa & Team Shikon & Lunar Asterisk & Clive & Richfield & every other guest including some anisong artistes :D

Check out after the jump for more inside goodies :D:D

random ramble + Etsuraku Camellia cover + AFA day report

, by dollonstrings

Did a cover for etsuraku~

  My loot from japan auctions arrived recently. Fruits Parlour JSK in Mint and an inowa bolero + miho matsuda gobelin jsk, and Baby's Twinkle Constellation JSK in yellow plus an AP lace bolero to go with it. I wanted to wear my puppet circus yesterday to AFA, because there's really only so many occasions to wear velvet in SG, but it's too bad. Since my EOY audition was yesterday, I had to wear my stage dress! XD I also bought six beautiful rose corsages from Hana Bana. Highly recommend them to everyone~~~ I've not seen better corsages elsewhere for the same price.

Pictures + AFA under the cut.

Lolita Photoshoot

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]


It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. ~Robert Louis Stevenson

paypal

, by dollonstrings

Recently I had a spot of trouble with paypal. It caused me so much anxiety that I had trouble eating and sleeping and thinking of my own work. It's twelve midnight right now, and the case is finally resolved.

Remember sellers, never ship without tracking.
And always keep your tracking receipts in a safe place.

u___u I learnt many valuable lessons. Will post more about my paypal dispute claim, how it was handled and what to do if anything happens after AFA tomorrow.

Amaya is working by showing the international cosplay guests around! So envious!

*yawn*
dollonstrings is signing off.

Cash Studio & Club DAM Machines

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]

To J-Pop fans, where do you go to sing only your favourite Japanese songs? Do you frequent Cash Studio?

Tired of flipping through the thick books to find the call numbers for your favourite songs? Books not updated with the latest hits? Fret not, for you can just find them online before heading down to Cash Studio.

[Event] JCosmeland Carnival 2012

, by 雨夜 [アマヤ]

Examinations are just round the corner (for A-Level & Uni students)! But it is still necessary to take a break once in a while away from the books! It is also rewarding after a day's worth of productive mugging ^^

Just a quick post on a Gyaru event by Shibuya Gals SG, jointly held with Watsons Singapore!
