Play Arts Kai Raiden Metal Gear Revengeance

I thought I should blog about my awesome Raiden Play Arts Kai figure from Metal Gear Revengeance. I had wanted this figure for almost 4 months before it was released. I remember stalking all websites for this guy as they were all sold out or overpriced. (note: This is before they re-released). So anyhow, I found it at a reasonably good price and snatched it. The excruciating long wait until the release date + shipping duration was well worthy. This figure officially kicked asses. Check it out. 

I can go on and on about the beautiful details on this figure. I mean look at the armor, it looks sooo real, even though they are all PVC. Amazing.
Raiden came with so many cool accessories. I love the blade, the throwing knives and his sword sheath. 

WHO IS DA BOSS? Come at me, bro!

He comes with his... mask/forehead armor? Basically the front of his hair can pop out. Then you plug this eyeshield into that peg hole. It's kinda funny when you see Raiden without hair when I was interchanging the parts. 
Absolutely smeeexy~ 
Gosh, I love taking photo of Raiden. Every pose he does screams "badass"!!!
I brought Raiden and Nero to a chalet by the lake. Instead of appreciating nature, I was busy drooling after how good Raiden looks. 
BRO HUG!
I don't claim to be a pro photographer but man... these shots are gorgeous. Raiden + nature = EPIC WIN!
Here is a Fabulous Nero with his pink Barbie glasses~ Aww Yis.

I'm so happy to be able to share this post and photos with you guys. Spread the love for Raiden Play Arts Kai yooooo~ Anyway, let me how do you like this figure and the photos in the comments. I look forward to reading them!

Excellent Model POP [Megahouse] Eustass Captain Kid

So after craving for Eustass Kid figure for 7 months, I finally have the guts to buy it. Yes, guts. Because this figure is pretty expensive and the shipping is no joke either. 
I stalked all the online anime websites for the cheapest price. Finally, I got one that is quite decent. 
The retail price for this figure is 12 000 yen which is about $125. And since this figure is more than 2kg, they insisted on shipping on EMS (all stores insist) which is $56 shipping fee. So it would have cost me $175 for one figure. Anyhow, I did some research and got it for 6 000yen and 5400 yen = 11 400 ($118). No regret whatsoever. 

Boy, my shelf is completely full now. Before my anime figurine obsession, it was empty. Anyway, Eustass Kid is quite tall for a figure (with the arm is 38cm) and about 2kg. 

 He comes with 2 interchangeable heads and 2 torsos. The coat and the knife-holder-belt are removable. You only have 1 left arm that is detachable. Above, you have one torso fixed with the gigantic arm. Below is another torso with the regular arm. You can have 4 different combinations with the 2 heads and 2 torso. Personally, I prefer the one above. He looks so much more sinister that way. 

 Strangely enough, he looks different when seen from different angle. It's pretty wicked. But check out those amazing details. My favorite is still his coat. It is one of the heaviest parts of the figurine, the other being the giant arm. I like to keep his coat on because he kinda looks weird topless. I mean the abs is sexy to look at but Eustass Kid in the manga/anime has his coat on, so damn this figure aint gonna stay topless. In all seriously, his abs is pretty a piece of work -- said the shameless fangirl. 

Here is the arm under normal lighting. I think Eustass kid look simply gorgeous 2 years before the time skip. Anyway, maybe they will release a 2 years after figurine later on.  

 The details are incredible. The material is quite solid. So far, nothing seemed to chip off. He can take up quite some space on your shelf. So clean away some junk because this pirate 'king' needs to show off his awesomeness. 

 And that's my favorite head. He looks so evil. Kyaaa~ 
I definitely don't regret buying Eustass Kid. He is currently the most expensive figure in my collection. But hey, it's totally worthy for the amount of details and interchangeable parts that come with it. 

I look forward for more awesome POP figurines. They are just so precious to look at.

Stunning Hotel Fairmont Montebello

Beautiful 5 stars hotel Fairmont Montebello is truly a sight to be awed. It is a fantastic place for family/couple to relax and enjoy what nature has. There are soooo many activities you can do there in the hotel alone! There are indoor/outdoor swimming pools. A cabin for bike rental. A breath-taking lobby to relax and enjoy a casual reading. Horse riding! Private boat yatch...etc. You name them, they have it! I was very fortunate to be able to enjoy 2 days there. It was one of the most beautiful memories I have. 

 This is our hotel room.
 The indoor pool is sooo beautiful on this picture. Too bad when I went there, it was close.
 Fortunately, the outdoor pool is open! We even went to soak in the Jacuzzi after a god swim. 
I went to this little... structure (whose name escapes me) and it was beautifully decorated with hanging plants and stunning flowers. The pictures that we have taken on that spot were marvelous. 

(Note: I don't own the top few photos. They were taken directly from the Fairmont Montebello website. I do own the following photos)
This is by far the largest lobby I have ever seen! It's huuuuuuge. It can probably fit 50 elephants in there no problem!
It's nicely filled with couches and chairs. It's a bit cute and homey when you think about it. It has a very family feel to it... with the dim lighting. You know, a family coaxing on the sofa in front of the fire place.  
This is the diner.

The outside where you can enjoy some yummy BBQ!

Like I said before, the indoor pool was closed... though I enjoyed myself outdoor. The workers were really helpful and charming. 
Yup, you swim next to the river. After a good swim, the best thing to do is to chill on those foldable chairs and watch the river flows. 
I believe this is a private boat yacht. I'm not too certain though. Nevertheless, it's a pretty sight.
 A group of excited family leaving on horse ride. I'm so envious. The horses are really friendly. They let you pet them on their head, neck, side...etc. 
The hotel ground is so vast that you can rent bike and explore every inch of the hotel! 

Well, I truly had a good rest after a relatively stressful year. My advice is that you can find yourself a good deal on some coupon sites that can offer great discounts for high-end places. I have gotten a good deal which includes a trip to the nearby Omega Park and a canoe/kayak by their private mountain lake. It was totally awesome. I would definitely return there when I get a chance.

First Day at Work! Are You Stressed Out?

First day of something is always scary! But you have to look at the bright side. Tell yourself this. "You will never improve your life if you are not willing to get out of your comfort zone." It's like travelling to new places, you are growing! So you better get comfortable at being uncomfortable -- quote from Secrets of Millionaire Mind.

Now if you are reading this because you got your first job, then allow me to congratulate you. Good work in passing the job application and interview process. You had gotten far now. You fought the job-snatching-gladiator battle and came out victor. I think you should take a deep breath and relax. Treat yourself with someone nice, could be a peaceful night reading a book, buying yourself a nice mousse cake, treat your friends/family to dinner... just enjoy yourself. You deserve it.

For fellow university students, I highly encourage you to get an internship. So what if you will graduate a semester later? Trust me, that experience you gain will be invaluable. You can always do like me. I don't have summer vacation. I basically study for one semester and work the other. By work, I mean internship. I'm going to share some of my experience with you guys. 

So I am starting my second internship at a big company. Pretty exciting. And pretty darn scary too! I am so nervous I can't sleep. In fact, I am so stressed about what my future boss and coworkers will think of me that I started planning my wardrobe 1 week in advance and started having imaginary conversation in the shower. Yes. It's normal to be stressed out. It's like the first day of school. Remember how nervous you are? It's the same thing for work too! 

But the wonderful part of FIRST DAY is that nobody expects anything from you. You are probably just a new face there for them to gossip later over lunch. So there you go, have a good first impression. FIRST DAY is when you get to show people how good of a listener you are, how friendly and how you will do your job right. You just have to sit there and be pretty and pay attention to your training. YUP! Training! Ask questions and take notes. I cannot stress how important note-taking is. You should know by now after going to school that taking notes helps a lot when it comes to your exams! Your brain doesn't remember things being said 3 days ago but your papers might. 


I had my first 2 days of training outside of my internship period. It was awesome because I was trained by an intern who is leaving and I am replacing her. It was a bit easier to talk to because we are of the same age, same job orientation. 

Be on time! By god, I was there 40 min early. I waited outside on a picnic table for 10 mins before I gathered enough courage to walk in. Apparently, my boss saw me from the window and LOL-ed. Gosh, that was embarrassing! 

She showed me around the office and introduced me to some senior managers. I totally froze! I was so stressed I just grimaced awkwardly at them. They must be thinking I'm a nutso. AUUUGHHH~ 

After that I had 8 hours straight of training. The intern was drilling all the info in me. I was kinda VERY overwhelmed. I tried to keep up but it was like "Woooaahhh what did you just say? No, like 5 sentences ago." 

My boss told me to take it easy and she wasn't expecting anything from me on my first day of actual work. Still, I am going to research as much info about my position and exceed their expectation!

Do You Know...Shocking Miley Cyrus VMA 2013 Performance?!!

While I am not a media-crazed person, I can't help but joined the mass population in their utter shock when I came across this horrific music video performance. I was happily scrolling on 9gag when a post caught my attention. I believe my jaw dropped lower than poor Willow Smith. Miley Cyrus just makes me want to curl up and cry from shock or terror... I don't know... but for goodness sake... what is this horror she has unleashed?
taken from 9gag dhuva
Out of curiosity, I youtubed the VMA 2013 and watched the scandalous video. So at first, she wore a tight [swimsuit] looking costume on stage. Then she thrust her hips a little. I was like "alright... it's not so bad... right?" But nooooo, she went ahead, grabbed onto a back-dancer's butt and slapped it. Then she stripped out of the swimsuit-looking costume and shocked everyone with her nude-bra and underwear. To make the matter worse, she started doing the following....
Seriously, what. the. hell. did. I. just. see? 
After seeing this at midnight... it's alright...
Who needs sleep anyway?
Alright, I understand that media nowadays is a bit extreme but I think this stunt just tops the cherry. What is with that skin-colored tight bra and underwear? And that tongue licking motions... and that... big foam finger that scrubbed down her body... and pointed at her crotch. and her crotch-grinding/twerking Robin what-ever-his-name?-Thicke. And how people cheer when she did that.... and don't they rehearse the performance before? Why hasn't anyone said anything? 
This is what I mean when I say it leaves nothing to the imagination... and it's broadcast on tv and everyone can see her butt... it's so shameful/disturbing...not that she has much ass to brag about... still. Augh! Why?!!!
I am just... so shocked by all these factors. Call me a traditionalist but even so... this is a bit hard to swallow. I can't imagine how the feminists would react. Let alone proper mother when their little girls saw this. What has the image of women become? How could those girls react so positively to her behaving such manner on stage in front of the camera? Good grief. 

I understand that she seeks attention but this is just soooo wrong. It's sad how society only reacts to scandalous events which encourages these soon-to-be-forgotten celebrities to do drastic measure to regain fame. 

Well, I hope she is happy with her fame now. Not that it is anything to be proud about. Sigh. I am just sitting here and shaking my head as I post this. I suppose I can only be thankful that I don't have this type of people influencing me when I was a teenager... I just hope for the best that the current teenagers know what is right and what is wrong to follow. 

I am just so ashamed, disgusted and disappointed in what young female celebrities would do to gain attention. I shall go watch some happy videos about kittens and puppies and forget this... nightmarish shock.

For anyone interested and dare to brave the shock...here is the video.

Otakuthon 2013 (Monteal Anime Convention)

This is my 3rd time going to Otakuthon though I am there mostly for the figurines and anime goods. I have been excited for this day since March, wow freaking 5 months ago. If that's not dedication for my figurine collection hobby and my love to see cosplay then I don't know what else to call it. I bought my ticket way ahead of time. I paid $40 for Friday-Sunday. Normally the ticket for Saturday alone is $40. Saturday is the busiest and most exciting days with a lot of interesting panels, events and cosplayers. Let's get started!

So I decided to cosplay as Ada Wong from Resident Evil 6. I started preparing my cosplay ahead of time, finding the accessories and toy weapons needed since shipping might take some time. I bought my toy gun for $2.50 from Ebay with free shipping. Prepared to be awed by some of the most amazing cosplays I have ever seen. People really work really hard on their cosplay. Kudos to everyone. I tried my best to take as many beautiful Otakuthon 2013 photo! 

If you look at this picture carefully... you will see someone doing a niiiice split. LOL
I love how she has her titan buddies around her. Just too damn awesome. 
Kudos to her detailed weapons! I mean geez, it's very impressive and beautiful.

This sure brings back memories, guys. If you don't know, it's one of he 4 evil digimons in Digimon Adventure. 
Tada! Era Fey found her giant mashmellow. I can't resist but to show you how cute that white mashmellow is. Must be so hot in there. My feet were burning inside my knee-high-heels winter boots.
Adorable Luffy. 
I wonder how they walk. Real dedication man. 
Perhaps 2 of the most detailed costumes ever. I recognized this lad from last year Otakuthon, she is always dressed in majestic queen/duchess outfit that she made herself. Very, very impressive.
The pokemon assembled. Now, let's go inside the Dealer's Room where all the goodies are.
This is the figurine stand that made me HOOKED/madly obsessed with figurines last year. My entire current collection result from that day onward. 
Some armor dealer. Makes me feel like I'm in a video games, upgrading armors and ready to fight monsters.
Well, there will always have little cute Japanese anime charms. So cute!
Here is some figurine prices for those who are interested. 
 The Gundam dealer.
 The nerdy t-shirt dealer. Usually, you can get $40/2 shirts
 The pillows... my friend M witnessed a very interesting happening... there was this huge pillow with a photo of a abused anime girl tied on the cover. That pillow was bought by ... a girl! Surprisingly. The girl was like "HUE HUE HUE!" * Evil maniac laughter * and walked away. LOLOLOL quite interesting.
 The prints/posters tables are always the busiest! Ouff... it's like you have to fight through a sea of humans to go to the other side.
And there is a sexy Lambourghini at the anime convention. How cool is that? 
And finally, I found some other Resident Evil Umbrella Corporation people! I'm soooo happy. 
It has been a great experience. I want to thank all those other amazing cosplayers who clearly put a lot of effort. See you all at next year's Otakuthon!
