Japan Earthquake Donate Drive @ Swinburne

Starting from tomorrow (1 April 2011) until 14 April 2011 Swinburne Anime & Manga Society (SAMS), Swinburne Japanese Language Club, Swinburne Green Club and Malaysia Red Crescent Society (MRCS) will be holding a donation drive at the G Block Lobby of Swinburne. The booth will be open from 9am until 3pm on weekdays.

Those who are currently going to Swinburne to study, work or just happen to pass by can give a small bit of donation for the sake of Japan!

If you're not clear about what has happened to Japan recently, a quick look at either or will give you a good idea about what happened and how bad it was for them. The situation is still pretty bad even now!

April Fools on Friday

Just a heads up to all. Friday happens to be SAMS' general meeting day so something special is in store for you all, even though most of the degree students will be busy then (I luckily have no paper on the 1st, but that doesn't mean I'm all that terribly free). This is targeted to foundation students.

Don't afraid to be a fool for those who dare to come, a prize, that I'm thinking of giving out a rather nice one if I have enough chance to go to the shop before Friday that is, for those who are "unlucky".

Until Friday then... ugh, exams!

Mid-Term Exam Week

Even though I got "hoards" of games I'd like to play, I'm going to have a mid-term exam next week. 3 papers only though since 1 subject had its midterm earliest last week.

FYI, the Foundation students are coming in next week. So, I'm wondering, if there are any readers by chance, who are going to Swinburne as a new student starting from next week? O.o

Okay, better get myself and the book acquainted properly before I make my life harder when the papers are before me. :P

Wish me luck! And good luck to those who are having exams right now or waiting for results too!

Too March Games

As much as I like to say I'm not rich, I will so totally look rich as you read this post. Or at least lucky that my parents even allowed me to take out my savings for it since it has a more family session purpose of buying.

After lots of thought, with a PS3 bought just earlier this year, I've finally completed one of my dreams - to complete one generation's worth of game consoles. It wasn't easy and the large amount of accumulated funds from young and educational benefit bonuses (Thank you SPM!) allowed me to reach this far. As well as it isn't just for me alone. If it were, I don't think I'll get half of the consoles I own now. Yes, having siblings makes having things like these have a greater meaning. Depending on your parents and yourself of course.

SAMS 2011 Test Forum!

I'm still not done with the Nobel part 2 photo-shoot. It's creeping very slowly and the already loose right hip joint paints an unhappy face on the review. Well, it was already loose since finished the build. How... unfortunate.

Anyways, that isn't what this post is about.

SAMS Test Forum

Due to the recent lag in Facebook, I decided to make a simple forum hosted at Proboards. In actual fact, SAMS attempted to make a forum in the past, hosted on the same server as this but it didn't get officially publicized, not yet anyways. As such, this is a forum test to see how participation may fare before increasing the load of the server. Else it may just go off in the way of the SSSC forum last year. The lag at Facebook is already gone by now, so the initial purpose is lost...

If you join the forums, you can see earlier RAW notices of events, even when they haven't been completely confirmed! You can also join in discussions as well as make suggestions to events as well. Personally, I'll be able to easily see it since the posts are not drowned by other things like when they are posted on Facebook. Nonetheless, news post will be cross-posted for better spread of information.

Thus, join us in the forums!

Note: Please register NEW accounts instead of login in with your Facebook, Google, Twitter, WLM, Yahoo!, MySpace or AOL accounts since it can be quite risky to share accounts throughout various sites.

Copy and paste my post from SAMS' blog.

I'm willing to open the forum to all people who are interested to form a community and share a common interest with one another. Remember your manners! (Even if an argument breaks, be civilized.)

That's all for now. Might as well make a post tomorrow about what I've been up to that made me delay an entire second part of a review. >_>

Earthquake in Japan

Image from CNN.
I'm not too familiar with the full details but an earthquake with a magnitude of 8.9 hit Japan yesterday. Tsunamis and fire followed with it too. Earthquakes aren't too foreign to Japan but this time, it looks very bad, well obviously.

Those who are a bit off with the news, can see images, here;
Sankaku Complex, 1, 2 (NSFW)

Or can just go to CNN where most of the news is. Compiled here. Live blog here.

I'm personally quite speechless about this turn of events but as long as we can help, pray for the country's safety and donate when you can to aid in this time of need.

That's all from me this time. I hope Japan can return back to its everyday operations as soon as possible~

Very Busy this Month ^^;

A lot of stuff needs to be done this month since school started. It is more quick paced than last year since our semester has been shortened by 2 weeks. Plus I have a lot of things to bring up for SAMS this year due to the lack there-of last year.

Anyways, I'm still kinda unhappy with myself for not being able to finish the Nobell review, not yet, but if I can, I may make a slew of random comic strips involving her - if I don't forget whatever idea I have came up so far when I get a chance to do a photo-shoot. ^^;

For those who live in Kuching or specifically go to Swinburne, come to the weekly SAMS general meetings where we watch anime and possibly do some other related stuff on every Friday from 1.30-4.30pm at G901.

That's all for now. D:
