Our Christmas feast! ^^

Last post of the year!! but we're still in the Christmas mood... keke.

When we think Christmas Eve dinner, what will come to your mind? Turkey? Yes! Roasted turkey on a long table and getting the most senior to do the honours of cutting the turkey. 

As both Ren and I can't possibly finish a roasted turkey by ourselves, we decided to bumb into KFC to get the feel of Christmas turkey! Like how most Japanese would too.. KFC wants you to eat them for Xmas. xD

And we have got Saber Lion with us. She will do the honours of making the first bite!

Sunday, December 26, 2010

This is what I have received from Ren! Chi's Sweet Home desktop calender!
Chi's Sweet Home is one of my favourite manga, all about this little kitten called Chii!
The other very familiar looking turqoise blue box contains a necklace.. HAHAHA.

It's Christmas! This is the season to be joyful!

Hello people! 

It's Ren and Tako here! 

This is going to be our combined post once again! 

All for the celebration for Christmas! The season filled with thanksgiving, love and joy! 

The time when we want to shout out to all our family and loved ones "thank you for being with me despite the trouble that I may have given!" "I love all the times spent together!" "it's a joy to have all of you by my side!"

I grew up from a little girl who is always excited about Christmas! It's time when all my loved ones will be around me. Fussing over Christmas presents, decorating the Christmas tree at home, putting up all the Christmas lightings, thinking of which dress to put on for the day itself, and drooling over all the presents that are stacking up under our Christmas tree! 

Now, I still love Christmas! For all the great reasons above! But most importantly to the root of Christmas and the joy of spending time together!!

Oh! Ren has even done up his version of Christmas Jingle for this Christmas and we are very excited in sharing with all of you out there! You can really sing it to the tune of 12 days of Christmas!

Here it goes with GODZILLA through loud hailer:-

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me..

Trans-Cool Tokyo - Contemporary Japanese Art.

Hi, ren's back.. A few days back right after my JLPT N4 exams, i dropped by the Singapore Art Museum(SAM) @ Q8 for this exhibition.. since its jus a few blocks away from where my paper was held. i really like the art works there, though i'm not a really artsy fartsy person.

For those who's overseas or too busy in Singapore, i'll share with you guys wad i've seen there! =D the exhibition will be held till 13 Feb 2011, so there's still lotsa time! maybe i'll suggest going there during a weekday, when there's not too much crowd to distract you from 'communicating with your inner self'. XD Jokes aside, it's really worth the trip.. to see how modern Japanese artist works.. admission is free too! All works in the photos here are accredited to the artists and not mine. =)

 Trans-Cool Tokyo!

Anime Festival Asia 2010 AFAX Part 5: Cosplayers around AFAX

Alrights, now that my JLPT is over, im back to finish my AFAX post! today's post will be on the cosplayers tt i've spotted on SUNDAY. Fortunately for me, i heard that saturday's cosplayers had very little space to pose as there was an event held at the usual empty floor. So im glad tt i only went on sunday!

This post will be more of a photo dump, cos there's simply too many photos for me to comment on... but i'll tell you smthing, the cosplayers are getting better and better each year! ^^ enjoy the custumes!


Finally ren's exam is over.. It's time to clean up! =D 大掃除を始めよう!

Hallo everyone.. ren here! a short update! finally, my exams are over.. and its time to focus on smthing else now! my hands have been itching for some gunpla.. which apparently is missing from our blog for quite some time now... BUT before that, while Tako is away, i'll clean up my room first, to rid myself of any traces of japanese homework.. and all the dust on my figures.. XD thus, i've tasked Kyouka to get some cleaning done! poor danbos.. lolx.

Anime Festival Asia 2010 AFAX Part 4: Regional Cosplay Championship '10

Hi, people! Ren here. Sorry for the delay in posting AFAX stuff.. had 2 mock papers for JLPT last week and the real deal is this coming sunday.. hafta pull my socks a lil.. XD Anyway, today's post will be on the Regional Cosplay Championship 2010 held at AFAX! As usual, i'm super far away from the actual stage. Altogether with low lights, action movements, i'll have many blurred photos.. pls bear with it. OTL If you're can't stand the blurred photos, the results are at the end of the post. XD The competition is judged by a few cosplayers.. Namely, special guests from Japan, Kaname & Aira, Philippines' Alodia and Singapore's Clyde. Let's start with the contestants!

Tako's going on vacation... so there's a new nanny in the house! T.T

I am going away for a week or two.. So Ren will be home alone. Don't miss me too much eh.. So in the meantime, will I be worried about Ren's well-being? Of course I am! So I am in a frantic search for someone who can take care of Ren. So who came to my mind? 

Midarezaki Kyouka.

She's an apt choice in my mind. 
I love her ears and tail. But too bad her tail can't move. Guess it is an earlier Nendoroid version, hence not much of articulation yet. 

How I got her? It's Ren the hunter again. We bumped into her at AFA X, but we contemplated hesitated and ended up empty handed. But thereafter, I kept mentioning her name and Ren concluded that Tako needs Kyouka by her side.

So whola! Here's Kyouka. Dishing out Kyouka amongst his collection. The next moment I started talking to Kyouka as if she's a living thing. 

Here she is standing in the living room. 
 Tako: Kyouka-sama, can you help to take care of Ren for me while I am away? 
Please please do not bully him okie? Because, the only one who can bully Ren is me, Tako only.

LovePlus Affair ~ Manaka @ Tako's office

I miss Ne-chan. I have not picked her up yet. But Manaka-chan is with me now.

A little background of the many-angled relationship that i have:-

1. Ren + Tako

2. Tako plays ラブプラス (LovePlus) so I have a very close girlfriend called 姉ヶ崎 寧々 Anegasaki Nene and i address her as Ne-chan. We have went through New Year, Valentine's day, school holidays, Natsu-matsuri and Christmas.. and so much more.

You may read more about it here.

3. But there is something that I did not declare to all of you out there.. Erm, I am actually helping my friend with LovePlus to go after 高嶺 愛花 Takane Manaka. Hahahahaa.

CONCLUSION : And so, I am actually dividing my attention between REN, Ne-chan and Manaka-chan.

I am bad, I know.I am sorry.

I am SOOoooooOO SORRY DANBO-KO. I chose Manaka over you. The sad back-view of Danbo-ko still haunts me every night. 

BUT take a look at this photo..

She's cute, isn't she? So.... i chose her over Danbo-ko.

Anime Festival Asia 2010 AFAX Part 3: Shops & Activities around AFAX

Part 3 of AFAX! Halo pple, ren here... Today's post will be abt some of the stalls and activities that's held during AFAX.. This year has a little more activities compared to last year.. so hopefully goers have enjoyed themselves... Let's go! ^^


This stall sells mostly nendoroids and figures.. but those you see in the display cupboards are not for sale.. some of them are quite rare..

Anime Festival Asia 2010 AFAX Part 2: GoodSmile Company

Ren is BACK to bring the 2nd post coverage of AFAX. this time is the figures and merchandises produced by Goodsmile Company, GSC. Figure collectors will have no doubt in the quality that GSC has produced these past few years.. unfortunately the rising Japanese Yen and licensing problem is slow plaguing its distribution across worldwide.

Enough about that, this year's exhibition is different from last's. This year, its the local distributor that's holding the exhibition and not by Mr. Danny Choo, so you wun get to see all the Goodsmile products and the president of GSC, Mr. Akira running ard. But there's still some things to see nonetheless. Let's start! =)


Nendoroid Petite! There's Fate/Stay Night, Vocaloids, and Death Note characters here. these cuties are extremely poisonous.. lolx.

Anime Festival Asia 2010 AFAX Part 1: Bandai

Halo pple.. ren here. Its time of the year again! tt's right, putting my JLPT studies aside.. Anime Festival Asia is back in Singapore again!!

3rd year running i presumed... it surely does draw alot alot of crowds from all over South East Asia. wooo. Before i give any of my own 'input' on this year's event, i'll give a brief introduction to AFA. As usual, AFA is 2days event, held 13-14 Nov, both saturday and sunday, where there's a relatively huge exhibition area and a single hall for live concert!

Exhibition area is where varies companies come together and show wad new products they have (actually singapore is real slow to see any 'new' products, usually 1-2mths after the news spread), and local distributors and hobby/anime merchandise shops gathered to sell merchandise to the public, usually having sale of 10% or more. There's also alot of activity areas for the goers to experience, i.e: Karaoke, Maid Cafe, Card Tournaments, Arcade etc...

The concert hall, on the other hand, holds a Pay-Per-View live concert each night featuring singers and bands from Japan, usually singing popular anime tunes. Its also used for talks given by special guests, topics could range from cosplay to blogging, business opportunities and so on.. and last but not least, the Regional Cosplay Championship is held in here too! Countries all over South East Asia sends their best cosplayers to AFA to compete, and the winners get to travel to Japan - all paid for!

Alrights, enough of introductions.. time for business. As before, like last year's AFA coverage, i'll break this event up in to several posts, mainly due to the fact that there's close to 300 photos.. it goes smthing like this..

Part 1: Bandai
Part 2: Goodsmile Company
Part 3: Shops & Activities around AFAX
Part 4: Regional Cosplay Championship '10

Left behind.. *sob*

I'm sorry, danbo-ko!

I chose manaka over you.. I'll pick you up another day k!

Tako ('o').

Lunchtime post: Caught in a situation..

Hello people!

It's Tako here. Am so caught in a situation.

I wanted to make a post, but I didn't bring a nendo along with me to work.

I looked up and saw Godzilla looking at me and I thought to myself, well, it had been some time since Godzilla had appeared on our blog.

Then I was happy for a second and next was, I didn't bring my cable for "Tako's Phone", so how can i upload the photos?


I can email the photos! MUWAHAHHAA. AND my mood lighten up a little. It's the monday blues.

As I was typing on my desktop, i sensed something beside me.. and my monitor start flickering, there seemed to be something with high levels of radiation near me. 

 * music in background*

Tako: Oh my! Gojira-san! 
Gojira-san: raaooow, rra raooo roaaaar rooar rooooaw raa rrraaaaa raaw. ROOOOOAR raaw raooow! raaooow, rra roaaaa rawww~
(translated - Tako, I know you are suffering from Monday Blues Syndrome. And i think i have found the cause of it.
I will destroy it! Tako, I will protect you~

The Beginning of Everything Gundam for me... ^^

Hi peeps! *waves* ren here.. sorry tt i was MIA these 2 weeks. right now i'm in mugging mode.. which explains why i'm not posting as often nowadays.. there's alot of chapters for me to catch up in japanese language if i wanna do well for my JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test). The exam is gonna be on the first week of December.. but enough abt that.. i'll try to make another post abt it another day. XD

Last week.. while tako was away in Malaysia for a week, i had the opportunity to do some cleaning up in my house and room.. and well-hidden in the highest level on a mounted shelf, i stumbled upon a treasure... my very own treasure.....

Recognized something familiar? a closer look...

Heritage tour to Malaysia

Why is it a heritage tour back to Malaysia?

(photo courtesy of Tako's Phone with my shaky tentacles)

Well, it is a long long story since my paternal granddad days.. My paternal granddad was a primary school principal in a village in Malaysia when my dad is still a toddler. SO lots of my dad's friends were in Malaysia, while my dad came back to serve his NS. So you can imagine, the heart-break he felt when he had to leave his friends. So this is a TOUR back to Malaysia to FIND all the old friends.

Wednesday, October 20, 2010


There is a whole lot of reasons why I seem to be down in spirits.. Now it had spread from workplace to some butter-finger issues that i recalled.. I called it - The SWORD Snapping!


Can you spot something different in my Saber Lily Nendo below??

Sigh.. Nope nothing wrong with her. Just that... Her sword snapped!! And Tako is the one who snapped it! Using my tentacles, i snapped it!

My heart sank. It sank all the way to 6 feet under.

I was upset. Sorry Saber Lily, I snapped the sword.

I had made a little confession here.

Lunch Time Post ~~~

Hello Everyone! Lunch Time Post is back today with Saber Lion!!

Recently, had been really "upset" with work. Nope, I have not done anything wrong at work or anything, it's just a feeling of "upset-ness". There are times when I told Ren that I don't feel like going for work. So I have got Saber Lion to accompany me to work. Yesterday, she was around to root me on, but was too busy with work to share with all of you how sweet she was.

Now, it's time to show our bonding.

This is how my working station look like. Piles of paper. Wished it will ignite by itself..

How small Saber Lion looks when posing in front of the papers.

Saber Lion: Isn't it time for your lunch now?? *sobs*
*Tako still scribbling at work..*

Saber Lion: Tako, i am hungry. *sobs*

Tako: I am so sorry, didn't hear you earlier... Here's your food..
Saber Lion: Tako, what about yours?? *sobs* why are you not eating?
Tako: Nahh, no appetite..

Saber Lion: Do you want some doughnut? I know, it's your favourite.
Tako: awww~ no my dear, thank you. i know u need your "doughnut". I will grab a bite soon k.. 
(i won't want to get a scolding from Ren too, for skipping lunch..)

Yes, I am whining about work.
I am really "exhausted" mentally.
Please don't mind me. LOL. I have Saber Lion with me.

Tako (x.x)..

HG GN-003 Gundam Kyrios Completed! ^^

Bandai 1/144 HG GN-003 Gundam Kyrios
Modeled By Ren.

its been 2 weeks since i've posted anything abt gundams.. its time for some gundam love! =D halo everybody.. ren here. this time its e completion of my Gundam Kyrios. 

Thinking back, wad struck me the most while making this kit... wasn't how cool its claws were.. wasn't how streamlined the fighter form was.. and how badass it looks completed. it was the amount of PAINTING this kit needs. almost all the armor needed some other colors. T.T 80% of the time spent on this kit was it's painting. everything was handpainted except the wings on the knees. me no likes stickers. tt's why i took ard 2 weeks to complete. *sigh of relieve..* but i'm not satisfied with some of the parts tt i've painted... i'll get more on to that lata...

Granted, this kit looks really nice when it first appeared on Gundam 00, i liked how it transformed to a jet, the killer GN claws and dual-personality adds up to a nice touch.. but i didn't know that there was so much work to be done on this kit. XD anyway.. as the photo goes.. i'll show you guys where i've painted and some minor panel scribing i've added to make it more accurate to the anime... i gave it a matt super clear finish.

Safarii - Hero

Ren here. Jus finished watching JDorama セレブと貧乏太郎 (Celeb & Poor Taro). its a very light-hearted drama that involves the lives of ultra rich billionaire heiress, Alice and an uber poor part-time worker Taro with 3 kids.. much comedy and some romantic sparks here and there.. i'd recommend if you like JDorama.. =) Tako likes Alice-san's lip gloss.. >.>

And this song is an insert in it.. its neither an opening nor closing theme but it fits the story very well.. and sometimes, i myself reflect upon it too. that's why i like it very much. pretty much shows wad i'm feeling now. jus wanna share it with you guys.. hope you like it too.

here's the lyrics.. in Japanese,
太陽が眩し過ぎて 顔上げて真っすぐ歩けない
いつになればなれるだろう 強くて優しいあなたのように
どんなに強がってみても 胸に残る虚しさが

※本当は自信なんてないし 情けないほど弱虫
泣きそうなくらい また今日が辛い 作り笑いの下でI cry…
強くなくていい 素顔のままに もう自分にウソつかなくていい

本当の気持ちを言えないまま 鏡に映った嘘の自分
周りと同じが楽だった 一人ぼっちが怖かった
逆境に負けず 立ち向かうHero あなたが遠く霞んで見えた


変わらないものなんてきっとない 答え探し続ける一生涯
今日よりも明日 明日よりも日月後日って先走って気付けば自分勝手
いっぱい人を傷付けて 結局は自分自身傷付けて
まずは認める所から始めよう 心に掛かった雲を掻き消そう
僕の物語僕がHero 君の物語君がHero 誰しもがきっと

本当は自信なんてないし 情けないほど弱虫
泣きそうなくらい また今日が辛い 作り笑いの下でI cry…
他の誰かを救えるほど カッコよくなんてないけど



in Romaji and...

Taiyou ga mabushisugite kao agete massugu arukenai

The sun is so bright that I can’t look up and walk straight
Laughter echoes through the town but somehow it feels lonely
When will I be able to be as strong and gentle as you?
No matter how much I try to pretend to be strong
An emptiness remains in my heart

※The truth is, I have no confidence
And I’m such a wimp it’s pathetic
Another day so hard that I feel like crying
Underneath my fake smile, I cry...
I don’t need to pretend to be strong, I can show my true face
I don’t need to lie to myself anymore
Because the hero of this story is me※

Trying to laugh with someone
Trying to be happy
Unable to say how I really felt
The girl in the mirror was a fake version of myself
It was easier to be like everyone else
I was afraid of being alone
You, a hero who faces adversity without giving in
Seemed to be a blur in the distance
But there’s just one thing
That I learned


There’s surely nothing that won’t change
We spent our lives searching for answers
We overlook today in favour of tomorrow, tomorrow in favour of the next day
And now I think about it, we’re selfish
We’re hell-bent on pretending to be strong
When we don’t even know what real strength is
We hurt so many people
And in the end we hurt ourselves
Isn’t it OK to be cowardly and clumsy
And even selfish sometimes?
Let’s start by admitting it to ourselves
Let’s get rid of the clouds in our hearts
The hero of my story is me
The hero of your story is you
If everyone can think that
Then surely we’ll all feel a little better

Tako is Home Alone.

Had been sick for a week. Medicine is not really working well and the "weak" feeling is lousy.

Took time off from work and is home alone now. 

Well, I am glad that Saber Lion is by my side now. 

Saber Lion: Tako, you are not feeling well.. is there anything i can help?
Tako: My dear little Saber Lion, I am quite ok, just need a rest k.. Oh do you want a drink??
  Saber Lion: But Tako, this is..... not..
Tako: Sorry, poking fun of you again.. sorry Saber Lion.... 

People!! I am bullying Saber Lion again! Haha. I am sorry. As i am really bored in front of my computer, and trying to play around with my new digital camera, then i found that i like this effect a lot. I love taking black and white photos. So decided to bring Saber Lion out.
Digital Camera + Saber Lion + a bottle of milk tea + drowsy Tako 
some silly post on Ren & Tako's blog
HAHAHA. I guess, Ren will give the (-.-"') look when he sees this one. 

and i guess some of you will have this same (=.="') look too as you scroll down this blog.
This is Tako's RANDOMNESS!
What do you all normally do when you are sick? and trapped at home?
I am happy to have this blog and I can blog about anything everything!

Tako's phone!

Everyone! Please meet "Tako's phone". Dozou yorushiku oneigaishimasu!

I took a MEGA step and jumped into the wagon of getting iphone 4. Am not really a Tech savvy person, i took some time to get used to blogging actually. I am generally lazy, as all of you know, so Tech-ky stuff seems to kill off a lot of my brain cells, so i tend to swerve away from tech-ky stuff.

Name: Tako's phone
Age: 8 days old

Next moment, I start to fuss about the wallpaper, the ringtones, and LOTS more.

So i guess, i will be snapping lots of photos JUST to find that one wallpaper for "Tako's phone".

When you think that this post is about Tako's Phone, well, here's the digress...

Tako: hello-ya Saber Lion, can you pose beside Tako's Phone, so that i can take a nice picture for our blog? I will give you your favourite drink later k. *trying to bribe Saber Lion*
Saber Lion: ....

Getting some boxes for nendoroids.. ^^;

Ren here.. Tako and I are now at tampines giant shopping for some
boxes to keep our numerous nendos' faces! Thanks to chubbybots who
told us where to get it. I couldn't find these boxes at other giants.
So we swept the stocks clean. ^^ It's kinda crazy for us to travel
this far but since we have quite an amt of nendos, this seems pretty
normal. Its also a feat for tako. Cos she is allergic to long distance
travelling. XD she gets edgy when shes tired. Somehow i survived. ^^

how do you keep ur nendos' faces? Or all the extra parts and
accessories? Do share with us! :)

Ren n Tako!

ブラック★ロックシューター Black Rock Shooter @ Photo Shoota!


She is one month old! And this is a photo shoot specially for my little BRS!

Friends out there, you would have remembered how BRS had helped out during our One Month Anniversary celebration. So this is a photo shoota specially for BRS.

Oh!?? Have i told you how i got BRS into my cuddle? Nope, i think.

Ren presented it to me after a hard day’s work. It was a thursday about a month back. Knocking off from work at 9pm that day, i was mentally drained. I was an empty shell at that point in time.

When Ren reached out into his bag and conjured out little BRS, my eyes lit up! THANK YOU REN!

Here's the photo - shoota!!

The flame – the blue flame! Is so nice!!

Ren here. im back to post more of my back log gundams that had been completed these past months. heh. this time i'm gonna post the HG O Gundam! i got this kit last year when i was in Tokyo, Akihabara.. it cost only 400yen! and tt's like SG$6 ?!?!?! BUY!!!! another reason i got it was becos of its GN particle effect wings.. as you can see from above pic.. very nice addition to a kit!  its also the father of all gundams in the 00 series.. (que Darth Vader's 'wa si lin lao peh.....')

i made this kit while doing the MG Unicorn build to distract myself abit. Cos applying the decals for Unicorn was very stressful for me.. whether both side matches or not.. the angles correct.. etc etc.. so decided to do a simple build.. jus straight build, paint those parts that's not accurate.. and voila! matt topcoat finish.. no stickies were used in this kit. =)

alrights! here's the photos.. enjoy! ^^

MG RX-0 Unicorn Gundam Ver. Ka Completed!! ^^ Part 1 (Unicorn Mode).

Bandai 1/100 MG RX-0 Unicorn Gundam Ver.KA (Unicorn Mode)
Modeled By Ren.

hallo pple.. ren here. finally after 6 months, i'm gonna post photos of my completed MG Unicorn. lolx. let me reassert that it is a CLEAN build.. no fanciful modding, so it mite disappoint a few. sorry! some paints, panel lining.. and deepening of lines and topcoated glossy is all i've done.. but no stickers were used. i took so long to finish this kit becos of a number of things..

- quite a number of parts.. and most of them need nubs cleaning becos im not gonna paint over them.
- panel lining; both outer armor and NT-D mode's pink florescent parts.
- short working hours on the kit. 1hr/day.. T.T
- and the most time consuming part.. MR. HAJIME KATOKI'S DECALS. i've applied them alll....

i'm sure after this kit.. my water decal's applying skills have gone up a quadtriple fold! XD as you can see them on my Mega size RX-78. and also.. i'll stay away from any Ver. KA kits for quite some time, or at least till the Furoku Sinanju's Head display is out.. den i'll start on MG Sinanju perhaps. ^^

alrites.. i've split the post of this kit into 2 parts.. Unicorn Mode and Destroy Mode, becos of the number of photos i've taken. ^^ okays! let the photos do the talking!

Ren & Tako's FIRST ANNIVERSARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just in case any one of you is mistaken about it..

IT's THE FIRST ANNIVERSARY of our BLOG! not Ren & Tako.

It's going to sound cheesy, but Ren and I will like to thank ALL OF YOU for staying with us for the past one year and it's been great fun! It has been a very nice and supporting community.


Next, it's going to sound silly. This is what one will get if there are 2 bloggers on one blog. As I, Tako, is typing on this post, I am bickering with Ren too. We had decided that a little cake for this celebration is a MUST! But, well,.. just this afternoon, I thought that, nahhh, we won't need a cake. ( I am trying to keep myself slim for a dinner party, shhhh.. don't tell Ren) But Ren thought that we should have one however he gave in. BUT now, here we are bickering about the CAKE. But well no worries, it's friendly bickering, happens all the time. LOL. 

BUT as we are all trained that there must always be a PLAN B! So here's what we decided on after a round of friendly BICKERING. 

BUT NO CANDLES????!! WHAT?! Now what? Ren felt helpless and Tako is laughing her head off.

 Tachikomas: Come on guys! We cannot allow Ren & Tako to bicker non-stop on this important day! We can definitely come up with something to help them. *brainstorming session*

限定発売の『ANAオリジナルカラーVer.ガンプラ』- Limited Edition ANA's original colour ver. gunpla

Mega Size Model 1/48 Gundam RX-78-2 ANA Ver.

Whenever we talk about ANA 1/48 scale, both Ren and I will burst out in laughter. It’s a silly joke about the way I talk. I tend to slur my Mandarin at times.. so it can sound really wrong and weird. REN! Stop poking fun of me!!

Unexpected loots.... by TAKO!!! ^('O')^

Heyhey.. ren's back. din expect myself to be making another post soooo soon eh. lolx. but its definitely smthing to post... when its abt tako.. heh. well well, tako and i went OG chinatown today.. she wanted to get some skin-care products.. so i went to the toy level at OG to pop by and see wad hidden treasures i can uncover....

True to OG's hidden trove.. its having a Gunpla sale! similar to Toy'r'us and the sale at takashimaya before tt. tho much of the items are the same.. they're selling some G.F.F.N figures too.. and oso, the new arrivals.. gunpla starter set of RX and Zaku.. MG V Gundam, MG Full Armor etc.. all at 20% off retail. i was grasping for air looking at all the kits.. i wan this!! i wan that!!! but the 20% discount wasn't enough to move me and my wallet. XD so after tako came back disappointed from her shopping cos the prices were too ex, we walked the ground together.. OG is actually screening Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz at the Gundam counter! and Tako is a die-hard Gundam Wing Fan-gal, her eyes glitters as she saw Heero Guy in Wing Zero Custom. (no room for me... T.T lolx.) Watching after a few minutes, we pulled ourselves from the screen and agreed to come back another day with popcorns to finish the movie cos neither one of us watch the movie before.. ^^

So as i was showing tako ard the new and old gunpla.. like wad gundams i'm hunting next.. she found something really cute.. and we decided to get it straight away! =D

SD RX-78GP03D and DX Wing Gundam!!! (do note tt its DX, not SD scale.. slightly larger den SD, somewhat like the new SD luxurious ver.) Tako couldn't recognise Wing Gundam at first, stating how deformed it was as her reason.. but when she realised, SHE WANTS TO BUILD IT! 'IT'S SO CUTE I'M GONNA DIEEEEE!!!' lolx.. me, being so proud of tako.. decided to buy this Wing Gundam for her.. haha. and a GP03D for myself since its at 20% discount.. she finds it cute too.. ^^

Ren's a Hunter. Black Rock Shooter – Revealed

So Black Rock Shooter's reissue is out! Having heard the news, my itchy fingers tentacles decided that they should type out my feelings for BRS.

When I first saw the pictures of Black Rock Shooter (BRS) figure – canon version, I am mesmerized by the look. The overall feel. This slim young lady with body covered with scars who has a gloom look on her face. This look is something that screams out loud to me.
