Attack on Titans PREQUEL Anime! (A Choice with No Regrets)


Attack on Titans fangirls and fanboys, hold your breath! The prequel trailer has been released!
For those of you who didn't know there's a prequel, it's called A Choice with No Regrets (by Isayama Hajime and Sunaaku Gan). It's a story of our favorite Heichou Levi when he was still an underground sewer rat and how he had come to be the Heichou we know. So far, I'm not going to lie, it looks really, really promising. The action sequence looks superb and incredibly detailed. Watch the video I have linked below. When Levi is flying, you really believe it. Amazing.


You can also read the manga version here!

Now a quick crash-course synopsis sans spoiler.
 The beginning story setting: underground/slum city where Levi and his band of misfits grew up.
It looks so much nicer and colorful in the anime than the manga. The manga looks really dull just as I expect a slum to look like... not this funfair bright colors... ANYWAY!

Levi is introduced... omg he is such a boss!
The color of his eyes is so pretty! *ba-blink!*
So in the story, Erwin visited the slum and saw how amazing Levi was at flying using the 3DMG and wanted to recruit him. Subordinate-on-first sight? Oh and Erwin didn't actually use the nicest way to convince Levi in joining him. You will be horrified by what he did! 

Not to spoil but... it's obvious from the trailer that they didn't get along. 

 Erwin is definitely not the type to have NO for an answer. 
And Levi is not the type to say YES for an answer. 
So of course they crashed. Levi Heichou getting ass-whooped... by Erwin and Mike.

 Feel the smexy! Oh yeah... (Levi took a selfie.)

Fly Levi, fly~ wwwweeeeeee

 I fell in love with the action sequence... so good. 

Epic farting... and I died from laughter. 
Ok I took this screenshot to show you guys how amazing the gas... (ppfftt!) from the 3DMG looks absolutely phenomenal. (Yes Levi, you have pretty fart.)

I won't spoil any further. You will have to wait for the first part of the anime to be released December 9 2014.
The second will be released on April 9, 2015!
I can't wait! Meanwhile, you can always read the manga (A Choice with No Regrets).
Thanks for reading!

Do You Know About Cat Cafe?

Alright guys, we finally have our first cat cafe in North America -Montreal, Canada. So you can imagine how thrilled everyone is... like super excited about. My facebook newsfeed was all about "Omg it's happening" to "Omg when is it opening?" a month ago. Little to people know, the Cafe Des Chats is already opened. At least the first one near Sherbrooke metro. 3435 Avenue Saint-Denis, Montreal.

It's funny because I didn't know a cat cafe was already opened. You know why? Because all we heard in publicity is Cafe Chat L'Heureux and not Cafe Des Chats. Waaaaat? I didn't even know Cafe Des Chats existed?!!!! And are you telling me there will be TWO cat cafes? I am telling you there's one already open and the other is on the way. I'm not sure if they both belonged to the same owner but whatever is going on... the owner of Cafe Des Chats really needs to snatch public's attention before Cafe Chat L'Heureux opens... because that place is all everyone has ever heard of and is anticipating on visiting. If any of you have any cool gossips, write them in the comments below. We would like to know more. Thanks.

Back to the subject...So I am here to enlighten you that YES there is a Cat Cafe already in business in Montreal (and they are within walking distance between each other... huh? yup! Competition might gonna be fierce! Rawr!) If you want to cuddle a cat, go there! Or wait until Cafe Chat L'Heureux is open. It's up to you.

So as a pet lover, I visited Cafe Des Chats (and will visit Chat L'Heureux when it opens eventually.)
It's located on Saint-Denis avenue, which is the hub-hub of fancy restaurants and beautiful little boutiques, at the heart of Montreal. For visitors, please visit that street. It's not too touristic and locals love to dine there. Trust me. You'll like it.

This is the entrance... it says "The Cat is King"... so it's safe to say that the cats there are getting the real pampering of their lifetime. Everyone is going there just to love them. How awesome is that? 

It's a great place for couples and friends. The ambiance is quiet and peaceful, with occasional cats crawling on your table... love it. 
The menu is a bit small, maybe they will expand it later. Don't panic. They have your usual coffees alright. They have Expresso, Meowchiato, Catpuccino, Americano, and bottled soda, ice tea, and some desserts. The price range is from $3.50 to $4.95 if I remember correctly.
I ordered a Meowchiato but I am not a big coffee drinker. So I can't judge if the taste is exceptional or not. You will have to try it yourself and let me know. 
The innocent little kitten... This poor little fellow is hiding under the chair, away from all the fabulous attention it is getting. Like I said earlier, they are definitely not left out. There were like 8 cats for 15 tables. Everyone wants to pet them! Hide yo cats, hide yo back, we wanna pet ya' all!

 This cat is majestic. Despite its grumpy looks, it tolerates your petting. :P

The chill spots for lazy cats. 

 The kitties are friendly. They don't scratch if that's what you are worried about. They will let you pet them (who doesn't?). The store also lets you use cat toys to bait them into playing with you. As shown above, the cashier playing with the cat... or rather trying to get the cat down and away from the fragile cups. 

This cat is really pretty. Totally elegant. Its fur is so soft. 

This is where the cats eat their meals. The place is a bit gloomy but it is expected. It's the place for the cats to rest. They have entertained you enough. Time to relax. Being with people can be exhausting. I don't blame them. They are real champs/hosts.

Sleep now, random kitten. This one will lick you if you go near. :)

Do You Know How to Save up Your Money?

I have always enjoyed keeping track of my finance to the dot. I started this habit when I earned my first paycheck during my first part time job. It's simple and organized. It's never too late to keep track of your earnings and spending. The earlier you start, the better off you will be. Book keeping can be surprisingly simple and efficient.

For Job: 
Create an Excel name: [Job] Salary

In there, you are going to create on the horizontal columns the following: 
  1. The date your paycheck starts
  2. The date your paycheck ends
  3. Payment Date
  4. Rate/Hour (if you are minimum/fixed wage, just drag down the tab)
  5. Hours worked
  6. [4 * 5] 
  7. Vacation pay rate
  8. Vacation pay (it's written on your pay)
  9. Gross income = [6 + 8]
  10. Tax with (simpler when you are doing your income tax next year)
  11. Total deductions (if you pay provincial and federal tax, sum them up)
  12. Net pay = [9 - 11]
Click to enlarge
Trust me. You just have to do this once and you can copy paste this for your next job.

Then of course, you should allocate yourself about 10-20% of your salary to PLAY.
By that, I mean to truly relax yourself. You work hard. You deserve some rest. It doesn't include food, necessity. It's an amount just for you to be happy doing things you like. It could be like treating yourself to spa, go to amusement part, buy fashionable wears...etc.

Create another separate column called "Amount allocated for PLAY (10%) per paycheck.
= 12 * 10%
That is the amount you can spend only. 
If you want, at the bottom of this column, you can put the sum of the amount you spend on PLAY.

You can also dedicate another column for travelling. I allocate another 10% of my paycheck to save up for my future travelling expenses. You can allocate more but 30% should be the max. Don't forget you still have a 10% of "Play". And you still need to save up for future expenses. 


This is my simple trick to be financially organized when it comes to SALARY SAVING. 
I have other methods of keeping track of my money which I will post them in other posts. The earlier you start being financially organized, the better. You won't feel so overwhelmed when you wonder why you are always poor or why your salary is not consistent. So I hope this post will help you! Let me know of your own book keeping habit.

Mont Tremblant (Hotel version) Part 1

Wonder where you can go for summer vacation? Here is a place I would recommend if you are living near Canada and love nature calling. My family went on a trip to Mont Tremblant (Province: Quebec) to enjoy the breeze lake and mountain chalet. It was one of the most relaxing trips I have ever gone to. It's perfect for families and peaceful couples. Basically, what you do there (depending on which part of the mountain you are at) there isn't any shopping mall. All you have are lakes (for swimming, canoeing, viewing), mountains (for hikers and mountain bikers) and maybe some tennis courts next to the lake. It's that wonderful. 

So this is the hotel/suite/chalet my family stayed. The place is a beauty of its own. It has always been my dream to have a house just like this one day. So to me, it's like a tease to have the place and have to go back once the trip is over. Now, I am even more motivated to work harder and smarter to achieve my dream. Anyhow, let's go on with the suite. It's a long, deserved rest for my family. Sweet Karamba!

 I marveled at this beautiful decors. When I hauled the suitcase in, I saw my mom came running to me at the door going "OMG OMGGGGGOOODDDD!" I was like "Omg what happened?" She pointed at inside the suite and went "THIS!" My jaw dropped. 

 Splendid. We stayed there for 2 nights. Best 2 nights ever. 

 Imagine waking up to the lake. Yup. My life is completed. 

My future home will look just as good, if not better. 

 We are getting ready for a big feast! The hotel provides us with everything. It's a full kitchen: Pots, plates, cups, utensil, dishwasher, washer, dryer, you name it. 

 The balcony 
 It's soooo beautiful. Mont Tremblant's view is truly something to talk about. 
My hotel also has a nice tennis court, gym, skating rink, big BBQ pit...etc. 

BBQ night! 

My mom has truly outdone herself. 

The night view. You can hear the crickets singing. 

It's raining, giving it a rather gloomy atmosphere but I love rain so extra bonus for me. Yeah, I am a rain child. 

The same lake we see outside the hotel. There are many other lakes at Tremblant. Over 400 I believe. That's craaazy. 

So this is it for now. I have to get back to study for my final and applying jobs for my superb Fall Work Term. Oooufff, student life can be tough. Anyhow, stay tune for another post on Mont Tremblant! Part 2!

Attack on Titan

OMG, I can't believe Shingeki no Kyoijin (Attack on Titan) is releasing its anime. I thought it was an underrated manga and this news makes me really happy. Finally, this series will gain exposure. With its magnificent artwork and stunning plot, I'm sure it will attract many new readers/viewers. I'm incredibly happy you guys have no idea. 

Now, you guys must check out the trailer. It is so well done and the music rocks! The atmosphere and tension you feel in the trailer is exactly what you must feel when reading this series. Utter despair and slowly regaining hope. I'm telling you, this manga/anime is fantastic. Coming from a picky shounen manga reader like me, my words gotta count for something. When I said a manga is good, it's very likely to be really good. 

This story is about human civilization being attacked by mysterious giants in the future. These giants cannibalize humans and drove humanity to seek refuge in a small city where they built tall walls of defense. There, humans lived in fear of invasion. Lacking technology we have today, their only way of defending themselves are just using limited fuel tanks to zoom around and blades to cut. One day, a super mega huge giant the height of the wall appeared and destroyed the precious wall that separated humans and those vicious giants. Despair, the humans are driven further into the city's inner walls. But slowly, these walls are being broken down and humanity has nowhere else to hide anymore. It was then, Eren has something unexpected to offer. He was able to become ... Watch the anime. LOL.

Amazon Fast Shipping!

On our birthdays, my brother and I received a gift amazon gift certificate from family. Excited, I ordered books I wanted and cartoon DVD for my little brother. I was sooo surprised by the shipping time. Aside from their free shipping (order $25 above), the delivery is faaast. 
This is how the recipient of the Amazon gift card sees. You can add notes and wishes there. This is my second time receiving amazon gift cards (I'm so geeky). Click to enlarge the pic...

At 11:49 am, I received a notification from Amazon that they had delivered my order. I expected it to arrive in 2 days. At 2:20 pm, the doorbell rang. Curious, I answered the door and saw the postman standing there with a package. I immediately recognized the package. After all, I ordered from Amazon a couple of times. But today is the fastest delivery I had ever seen! They mailed the order at 11 and I got it at 2... that's 3 hours! Omg. Do they have their warehouse next to my house or something? I'm really surprised by their speedy delivery. Very satisfied. 
This is how the order from amazon arrived in their usual packaging. The books and DVD are a bit disorganized during the handling but it's not big deal. 

 Tada! All arrive safely. My little brother's precious DVD and my books. I can't wait to read them. Hammer of God by Karen Miller will be an interesting read. It has pretty gory detail in the first book Empress but what I really like about the trilogy is the world Mrs Miller had created. It's so harsh and entertaining.

I was browsing around Amazon when I ran across Theft of Swords by Micheal J. Sullivan. I did a quick research about the book and the preview looks positive. So I'm going to give it a try.
Cat in the Hat is one of my brother's favorite. WordWorld is very educational. He starts going M-m-m mouse! So cute.

Again, Amazon did a good job today. They never ceased to amaze me. My expectation for them is now set to the highest! Haha. If you want to send someone a gift certificate, get it from Amazon. They have almost anything there. Toys, books, figurines, cooking, tools, electronics, you name it! You don't have to worry about buying the wrong gift. Let the recipient pick the ones they want.

International / US Amazon (free shipping $25 above):


Canada Amazon (free shipping $25 above)
