Girls' Generation Love & Peace Album

I bring to you guys today, LOVE & PEACE. It's Girl's Generation 3rd Japanese album. There latest album came in three flavors: Complete Limited Edition, Limited Edition and Regular Edition. Each edition also comes with different album cover. I instantly bought the complete edition from Amazon JP when it was available for pre-order.

Monday, December 9, 2013


Just received my COMING DAYS and PASSING DAYS album from Amazon JP. Both albums contain only 4 songs but comes with 2 stickers and 2 graphig that you can only get from the album (I think). A cool fact is that the album art is illustrated by Hiro Mashima, the original manga creator of RAVE and Fairy Tail. I bought the album because the music were created by DECO*27, 40mP, sasakure.UK, etc. Basically well-known famous vocaloid song creators.
Here's a video from U/M/A/A youtube page about the albums.

Quick Look: Nendoroid 359 - Drossel (Charming)

Today I finally received Nendoroid Drossel (Charming). If you don't already know, Drossel is the main character from a series of short animation from Disney Japan. The episodes are around 4 minute long but are really amusing.

Well lets get going on the Nendoroid. The first thing I notice, was that the box was matte instead of the usual glossy shine. I'm not sure if its unique to only Drossel since I don't buy every Nendoroid that comes out. The box was also a nice black and purple color scheme. I also notice that in the inside of the box was the Nendoroid number.

Also first print error in who sculpted.

Racing Miku 2012 Ver. Mini 4WD

Finally got around to building the Miku 4WD car since I bought it back in February I think. Reason was because I didn't have any tools on me and no paint.

40 in Action at the Japanese Garden

I got around to taking some photos today at the Japanese Garden in my school during my really long break. Carrying around my camera with this lens is really convenient and light. I didn't to really take many good pictures of the koi fish since they didn't want to come to me unless I had food. However in the process of taking their pictures, a dragonfly landed on me because its wing was wet. I basically spend a good 10 minutes trying to get this dragonfly to safety on some bush. I did take pictures of it in the process. Pictures after the jump.

Quick Look: Nendoroid 333 - Hatsune Miku Yukata Ver.

I finally got around to taking Hatsune Miku Yukata Ver. out of the box after buying her during Anime Expo 2013. Was kind of holding back until I can get a better lens for my camera....

2nd order from Lupicia to Survive the Summer

Summer is just getting started where I live and my order from Lupicia has just arrived in time to help me cool off from this heat. This recent order included tea mainly for making iced tea. Perfect for this 90~100 degree weather.

Very First Order from The Goulet Pen Company

I came across Goulet by random when I was looking for a conversion for the Kaweco Sport music I got from Jetpens. Goulet is solely a fountain pen site/store, while Jetpens is focused on all types of stationary, pens, pencils, book, etc. Goulet is like the mother site of anything fountain pen related. They have color swab, ink review, nib comparison... basically anything about fountain pens. Best of all are the ink samples you can buy. This way you try different inks without having to buy the full bottle and finding you don't like the color or property of the ink.

Korea Day at Dodgers Stadium, Dodgers vs. Reds

I recent won tickets a few days back for the Dodgers game today (07/28/2013). So this post will be about my experience to a baseball game. The only reason I enter the giveaway for the tickets was because it was Korea Day and Taeyeon, Sunny and Tiffany from Girls' Generation would be there. I was super excited to actually see them in person for the first time. Sadly they didn't have a fan signing event. :(
Got tickets thanks to Korea Tourism Organization, LA . If you love Korea, be sure to give them a like on FB.

Quick Look: Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0

Another nendoroid has arrived in my collection and it is none other than Hatsune Miku 2.0. Not sure if this is really new, but the extra faces of this nendoroid is is not does not have the neck part.Without the neck part on the extra faces, it is more easier and quicker to change faces without having to remove the whole head off the body.

Anime Expo 2013 Day 4

For day 4 of AX, I didn't do much expect going to the exhibit hall when it was pretty empty and waiting 3+ hours for Alodia's panel so I could sit as close to the front as possible.

Last time I will being seeing this banner until next year.

AX 2013 Day 2 & 3

So for Day 2, I took roughly the same amount of pictures as Day 1 but for Day 3 I only took around 8... So I decided to combine the two days together. Once again there won't be much words from me, just lots and lots of pictures. Hope you enjoy. (*Warning: lots of pictures)

AX 2013 Day 1

Day 1 was awesome. There were lots of cosplayers, booths and events to go to and see. However I learned  in Day 1 that the majority of your time is spent walking, standing, and/or wait in line. Well it's hard to put my experience and emotion into words so I'll just show you all the pictures I took for Day 1. (*Warning there are about 100 photos. Also sorry for some blurry photos.)

Anime Expo 2013 Day 0

So year is my first time ever to Anime Expo(AX) and I'm really excited. Day 0 is when I am suppose to pick up my badge and meet people.... I arrived at the convention center around 2 and had to stand in a super long line until around 5 when I got inside the convention center to pick up my badge. Hopefully I can get some really neat stuff and take some good pictures to show everyone.

Wasn't really much to see yet at Day 0 except for the long line that I didn't get to take a picture of.

Gmarket Order #4

Order No.4 has arrived. This time the package was in a double box. It doesn't look secured but I assure you that it was. Maybe it's just me but I can't take the two box apart to recycle.

Yellow House Cafe

So I was with my family in Los Angeles (LA) and decided to try Yellow House Cafe since we were near by. I heard about Yellow House from a friend since I really like cafes. Yellow House is a Korean owned cafe located in Korea Town of LA. It is found off a main street and is literally a yellow house. I found it interesting that they had valet parking since it was hard to find parking in a neighborhood.

Gmarket Order #3

I think am too addicted to Gmarket... -.-
Just received my third order in less than two months. Nothing new to say about their service. Great service and quick shipping as always. ^^

However... this time my package came damaged... It sounds bad but at least nothing was really damaged...

Gmarket Order #2

Gmarket is probably my favorite site for getting anything from Korea. I made my second order a day after I received my first which was on 02/02/2013. My order arrived quickly as expected on 02/11/2013. It took less than 2 weeks (around 5 business days) to process my order, have the seller ship the items to the Gmarket warehouse, have it ship to the States, go through customs and arrive at my doorsteps into my hands. :D
*Warning: Lots of images

Quick Look: Hatsune Miku Yukata Ver.

My 3rd Nendoroid finally arrived everyone. :D

I bought her from the Good Smile Company site since I couldn't find her from any other stores. I rarely buy directly from GSC because they only provide EMS for shipping, which is ¥2000. Overall shipping was somewhat quick. Well her are a few pictures of her until her fan got stuck in her hand and broke T_T

Gmarket Order #1

I finally received my package from Gmarket. It only took 2 weeks, which is really fast in my opinion, taking into account the fact that I ordered on a weekend and it had to go through customs.
As you can see from the picture, it came in a really big box... big enough that I could fit myself in it.

My Fujifilm Instax Mini 8

My Instax mini camera came in today and I decided to blog about it. I've always wanted a Instax camera but there were so many choices to choose from. Luckily there is a new model (Mini 8) coming out and I knew that I should get that one.
The Instax mini 8 comes in White, Black, Blue, Pink and Yellow

Quick Look: Inori Nendoroid

So I finally decided to take Inori out of the box. She is the first Nendoroid I have purchase. For those that don't know who Inori is, she is the heroine in the anime Guilty Crown which came out in 2011. The screenwriter Hiroyuki Yoshino is know for writting many known anime like Mobile Suit Gundam Seed, Code Geass and Mai-HiME. Guilty Crown is has a dark story in my opinion, quite similar to Code Geass R2.
Well, here are some pictures of her with different poses:

Quick Look: Mirai Nendoroid

My Mirai chan Nendoroid from Amiami have arrived. She is my second Nendoroid in my collection and is the first Nendoroid I have opened up and played with. Overall I am pleased with the craftsmanship and cuteness of this Nendoroid... or any Nendoroid in general. Well lets get on to the unboxing of Mirai.

My First Fountain Pen & random stationary

If you know me really well, then you know that I love Asian pens, pencils and other stationary products. I especially love the ones made in Japan. They are of better quality than any of the stuff here in the U.S. and when I mean better, I mean superior. If I have to give them a grade, Japanese product = S, U.S = B or C. Well, enough with my ranting and on to the products :D
