Tasks in Hand

Although the semester break is now over, I really didn't put up much content on the blog for a good while already. I seriously didn't expect a number of events to occur in my (real) life - bit I guess interesting turn arounds can happen. That made me spend more time outdoors with a couple of close friends.

Being able to drive also helps greatly and I recently realized that I do not want to part with my Proton Saga. Somewhat given to me by my father, I truly have a car that I can drive. It, however, needs an overhaul and some misc repair here and there (like for the power windows). Thinking back, it happened to be the first car I came to like, actually the special limited editiob Proton Knight, but it is a special thing to me nonetheless.

Last week my sister got a new phone (pictured above). Since we couldn't afford another mid-tier phone, I picked the Sony Ericsson W8 for her as she mainly uses her phone for music. At default it was very laggy but I fortunately jumped the gate and went ahead to do some research then actually hacked it. A few hiccups along the way but the final result (pictured above) made the efforts worthwhile. GingerDX is a pretty good ROM to use - its fast.

Now I even have concept design work for a few events coming up this year...

That's all for now - pretty much filler ramblings though. =P

PS: Gundam AGE season 2 is shaping up to be a much better show than season 1.

Striking Filler

One week left for my break and I realized I haven't done what I've promised to do so I'm gonna toil away on some responsibilities for a while again... I blame my frequent outings lately. Can drive, have car then spend too much time outside. D=

MG 1/100 Sword Strike Gundam.

MG 1/100 Strike Gundam.

At any rate... has anyone watched the rather mind**** BRS anime series thus far?

What's Up?

In regards to the local Cardfight!! Vanguard tournament last Sunday, I lost - big time. Having to fight your closest friends (as per the tournament), I was overwhelmed. ^^;

Ah well, at least I can go back with two boosters still plus one King of Knights Alfred (which I bought before the tournament began but it didn't get utilized). Lohengrin, at the middle, was given to me by my friend who happen to "goreng" everyone there and won first place (while being my first opponent). Ironically, I did say he would win if he entered. =P

At any rate, it was an interesting experience I say. Some bitter aftertaste of defeat since I didn't do much for the tournament itself asides from taking photos and playing for fun after losing (then I suddenly happen to be able to win multiple times against others...). Uh, more irony? I'm not that sure about that but I never been to such competitions though. ^^;;;

Otherwise, expect this soon.

As for the fishing episode with Unicorn and Sinanju, I'm still wondering how should I go about that. Somehow thinking of something madly colorful and possibly running like a silent comic (which will open a window to bigger laughs)? Hmmm...
Note: I blame Futurama's latest episode about that last idea flash. =P

What's Up This Weekend?

Gonna join a local Cardfight Vanguard tournament later in the afternoon at Green Heights Mall.

This single (fully usable) Blaster Blade will be part of my "image of winning". Nonetheless, it will be my first time in a tournament. Wish me luck! ^^

Dragon Momoko Blade Liger DONE! :D

This is, to be honest, a quick job. A bit of smudges around with the silver painted areas but it kinda give it some kind of weathering effect. Looks alright to me. XP

Using the Tamiya bottle paints for the gold (sans plated parts) and silver for the first time so I underestimated the interval for it to dry so I essentially clumsily made more work for myself just now. ^^;

To be continued...
