J-Trip 2013 Day 1
So on 11 May went on a holiday to Japan~ >w<
Was actually supposed to go to the US but something came up and my mum ran out of leave so Japan it was.
Managed to get rubiwitch to tag along too XD Our second time going to Japan together. This time we shared a room so HONEYMOON >w0~<3 If only her Syaoran wig had been collected in time, we could have had a Sakura Syaoran honeymoon ;~;
Iron Man 3
So during the weekend, I managed to watch Iron Man 3 twice :3
Yup, painted my nails the day before ^^ Didn’t manage to take a pic of the other hand but the thumb has the number 3 in red with yellow outline on a black background. The other fingers were just red. And brought chibi Iron Man along of course.
In the corner, you can see Shiki trying to grab my finger with Iron Man’s head painted on it >x>
The 2 Iron Man fans. haha for once I was the one spazzing in the cinema >< Wore our Iron Man badges from AFA too XD
And then took a pic in front of the huge Iron Man 3 images outside the theatre XP
On Sunday, went to the same cinema to watch it again :P This time with my parents
And chibi Iron Man of course.
Then went shopping for a bit.
Bought a new sling bag :3 Been looking for a nice leather slingbag to replace my old Adidas one ><
And new shoes. Because. =w=
They’re maroon :3
And so of course since we were in Orchard we had to go to Kinokuniya. Of course. And then
Yup. I saw it in Kino on Sat. Then went back on Sun to buy it ._.
Yea >< Will have a seperate post about the contents.
So thoughts about Iron Man 3…
Iron Man Mark 7 nendoroid
Finally got my Iron Man nendoroid. OMg remember I preordered him back when I was in SuZhou He was supposed to be released in February but got delayed OTL
Got the SMS for collection yesterday and immediately went to the shop today XD
Comes with the special stand, normal clear stand and a few hand and effect parts
Also comes with a suction cup part to stick to walls or whatever so it really looks like he’s flying around. It’s not really strong enough to support the weight though :/
The above picture is what happens every time you try
Underneath the helmet. He doesn’t have any hair ><
Apparently the inner head is removable to swap different characters in but so far I’m having a problem. His ears can’t get out with those 2 discs at the side covering them and I haven’t been able to remove them.
Also from the above pictures, the helmet top has 2 grooves so that the faceplate can slide up and down. Unfortunately, the grooves on my faceplate are spaced a little too near so only 1 groove can fit in >~<
Well, overall he is kinda fun to pose. Some bits tend to fall off of course, like the effect parts. Paid $50.80 for him coz I preordered from La Tendo.
My current Iron Man corner. Nendo Iron Man’s back in the box though. Gonna bring him to my friend’s house tomorrow ><
Finally Kino again
Dad actually promised to bring me after graduation but was either busy or he had to fly overseas. Finally managed to go yesterday ^^
Hoshi wa Utau 8 and 9…and it ends at the cliffhanger part where [SPOILERS] sakurafinallywokeupjustasaoirealizedhewasinlovewithsaku =3=
Read up to that part in scanlations too and so far haven’t seen the other chapters. Read somewhere online that Saku and Aoi don’t end up together? ;~; Ah really want to read the ending ;A; Why is this series so depressing~ QAQ
Invincible Iron Man 5 and 6.
Finally got the one with rescue on the cover. Always cannot find 4 though so skipped it ;~; Really wanna find out how Tony recovered after being defeated by Ezekiel Stane. Well, it sort of says in 5 how he regained his memories and all that but still wanna read it =3=
/sigh that feel when you have 1 and 2 and they only sell 4 etc…
So I was like whatever I really wanna find out what happens to Snow and Bigby so just gave up and bought the regular one instead of the Deluxe edition. But I guess they put more chapters into the deluxe one so the ones in here I’ve already read OTL
So confusing~ / throws into Selling pile ;~;
Doctor Who books~ =w=
…for some reason, there are not a lot of Ten+Rose stories and quite a lot of Ten+Martha? 0x0
Oh and when I was looking through the shelf, deciding which ones to buy, there was also this boy choosing a small stack. And the mum was like scolding him, saying he could only get 5. And she was like sort of pointing at me and said something like, “Oh look, you have a friend who also like Doctor Who”. Was sort of keeping my head down, focussing on reading the blurbs but in my head was like thinking “Do you have a Facebook account? There’s a SGWhovian group on FB. Do you wanna join?” ”’OTL
Another Oz book~ 0w0
Why does poor Dorothy keep getting caught up in natural disasters and ending up in Oz. lol
And a new outfit 0w0
Well, my parents want me to update my wardrobe a bit. Apparantly, my clothes are too much “like a student”. And also I have too much black ><
Ah well, really like this dress. Also bought a new pair of Timberland shoes…which I don’t have yet. The colour I wanted didn’t come in my size but there was one in they’re Marina Bay store. So they’re gonna have them sent over to the Orchard store and contact me to go down to collect another day =w=
Went to Kinokuniya again XD
Main reason I wanted to go to Kino. Finally the last book >< and also OMG the LAST book ;A;
Was released when I was all the way in China. Finally get to read it >w<
Also the last book…
…and another last book ._.
Finally though. Been waiting for it like sooo long. Before I went China, went to Kinokuniya a few times and it was still only Book 3
So anyway, gonna have last book depression times 3. Awesome.
2nd book in the Sandman series. Took me a while to get used to the artstyle but really like the story >w<
2nd book in the Fables series.
3rd book in the Oz series. Ahhh I love the character designs in this series >3< Wish it was a cartoon or something ><
Finally the Uranus cover~~~~ <3
Seriously, it’s like as long as I decide to cosplay a character, my love for that character increases to like 10 times ><
Wanna read all this but also wanna sew~~~~ OTL
Went out shopping again >< Last chance to shop (in Suzhou) before we fly back home.
Actually, we went out because WeiJie wanted to try to find some plain t-shirts. But in the end, I was the one who ended up buying the most even though I was just planning on tagging along and maybe seeing if there were any souvenirs to buy. Oops XP
(don’t know why stupid tumblr rotated my pic =3=)
So yea, bought a skirt even though I wasn’t intending to buy anything for myself ><
Little Shappo keychain in front of plastic bag of stuff I bought for friends ><
I just can’t resist Sentimental circus ok. ////>A</// And only when I reached home I realized the keychain part also got the thing to put on the phone, at the eariece hole. So when I go back to Singapre my whole phone can be Sentimental Circus-ed XP (at least until December when I change my phone and make it Iron Man-ed instead XD)
Went to GuangQuan Jie again yesterday. Bored of staying at home the whole day so just went there to walk a bit. See if got anything to buy. Anyway, only got about a month or so here so its about time to SPEND ALL THE MONEY o\ lol
So yea, bought this dress. Cost 170 yuan. I just…really like clothes with hoods ok ><
Oh and in the morning (afternoon) got hit by a few drops of hot oil. Ad I wasn’t even the one cooking. lol
1 drop was so accurate ithit me right betwee the eyes =.= Doesn’t hurt or anything now but there’s like a small mark =3=
Went to Guangquan Jie on Tuesday. Theshopping area the boys went to on Sunday. Went with my parents and LiXin coz the guys went out with a colleague.
It was a huge area. Mostly the buildings sell all the branded stuff while the outside shops sold more affordable stuff. Spent the whole day just walking around until my legs were super tired ><
There was a brand called A02. It’s sort of branded coz the stuff in there were expensive and the theme of all the clothes is Cats. So like ll the hoodies had cat ears and lots of cat images and paws on th clothing >w< But they only sell warm weather clothing so even the hoodies are super think. And anyway all the stuff is expensive >A< I’m sure rubiwitch would like this brand >< Too bad all the clothe they make can’t be worn in Singpore ;A;
There was also another brand called Teddie Weddie. The theme of their clothes was Teddy Bears and School. >W< Argh was also expensive brand. Som of the clothes looked like they cold be worn in Singapore. Like not too thick. ;A;
I joked that since there was a cat brand and a Teddy brand, there should be a panda brand. And there was ._.
There was also a whole stretch of road with lots of food stalls (I think it will be showing up in this Saturday’s episode)
Tried some like the deep fried crab and fried pigeon. Tasted not bad though when you eat for too long you get sick of the taste quite fast ><
Bought quite a few things ><
Bought these 2 at some shop. Was buy 1 get 1 free for anything. So like they will charge you for whichever one is more expensive. Got both of these for 175 yuan (around $35) >w<
Also had to buy a new bag coz the old one spoilt ><
Spent the morning surfing the internet. I woke up at 9 while everyone else slept in til 11~12+ XP Caught up with some of the manga I”m following. Haven’t check the manga websites ever since I arrived. Surfing the internet here takes like 2 times longer than when I’m home. Especially image-heavy websites like Tumblr =3= Facebook even worse >A< The proxy makes it even slower and usually I can only check my notifications before the internet mysteriously become like 10 times slower =3= Why does China hate Facebook so much? =A=
We had actaly panned to go out to buy some stuff but it was sorta raining so we decided to wait for the rain to stop. In the meantime, we were a bit hungry so just cooked some leftover stuff. There was a can of vegetable soup so we cooked that.
There was also some leftover carrots, potatoes and onion leftover from when we cooked the beehoon. They were gonna spoil so we decided to just fry them together with some oyster sauce. lol We totally didn’t know what we were doing but in the end it was actually pretty tasty :3
Around 1+ went to the shopping area. It’s sort of like a mall area but…not as high-class looking as like a mall in Singapore… Sort of like Bugis I guess. This is only the entrance area near the bus stop. It’s atually way bigger than it loks here. Is like a few malls join together in one area.
Took the pic at nght coz it looks much nicer >< Looks really dark but when I took that photo it was only around 6.20 pm >< haha It’s autumn so it gets dark rather fast around here. Will be even worse when it’s winter ><
Ate lunch there. ordered something called “Beef QQ noodles”. Tasted ok. The noodles were sort of like udon but…chewier (?)
Mostly just window shopped. Me and LiXin went around looking at all the shoes and clothes shops. lol Poor guys had to tag along.
Bought this pair of blue around calf-high boots >w< It’s made of like furry leather material. And blue! There were a few shops seling this shoe design but for some reason only 1 shop had this blue one. And it cost me… 65 yuan. Which is around $13…. yea. XDXDXDXDXDXD
LiXin also bought a pair of boots. These were slighty more expensive. Cost 120 yuan which is around…$24 XD
Then went home and cooked some instant noodles for dinner >< Also cooked some rice and bought some ingredients for tomorrow. We’re gonna be cooking fried rice for lunch. 8D
