1000 Paper Cranes

1000 paper cranes (1)
This is what 1000 paper cranes look like lolz

I did this probably 2004. I don’t know why I think it’s 2004 it just sticks to me. I remember finishing this 3 - 7 days. I know I was aiming 3 days but I know I went over that. I made so much that until now, even with my eyes closed, I can make one.

I know why I did this but I don’t remember what I wished for specifically. They said that making 1000 paper cranes you can make one wish. I don’t think my wish came true though. Or maybe it did I just didn’t realize it.

I have had this is my room and sadly I have to take it down cause a mouse has been running around my room and decided to chew on one of the strings and some of the cranes. It’s really dusty now and I think I really need to retire this. I don’t think I should keep it around.

2016

明けましておめでとうございます!!!

I described 2015 as a rollercoaster ride and 2016 well I think I fainted. Last year was chill, I feel like I slept through 2016 and woke up to another year ending. It was so chill, too chill for my taste though. But I get to study Nihonggo this year so it wasn't that bad.

Also I was able to complete my Art Resolution!!

I also did this and posted it on Twitter and it kinda blew up since 2 of the company CEOs responded.

I wonder what 2017 is gonna be like. I hope a different ride would be available that'll be cool! wwwwwwwww

LET'S GO 2017!!!

Nostalgia in Mini packages

When mini NES Classic was released, I kinda wanted it for the nostalgia. I love classic videogames, those are the games I grew up with. But shelling out money for it although the games are awesome but I know I can just use a simulator for it.

But then Mini FamiCom came out, it was different. Family Computer or FamiCom is my first game console. Reading that it’s going to be released in Japan unlike NES Classic that was released in the US, I knew I’ll never see that mini FamiCom unless I order it from Japan.

Last month, one of the game store that I was following on Twitter posted that they are selling NES Classic and of course Mini FamiCom. I was planning to go as soon as I can (since I saw the twitter when I was already in bed). The next day even before we go to the mall, brother suggested we call first. So we did and found that the console was sold out on the same day. I was a little sad but I just thought it was meant to be.

Then early this week, another post was made on Twitter by another game store. Announcing that they are selling another batch but this time is was 2K more than the initial selling price. I have to be honest, these mini nostalgia filled consoles are quite cheap, so I wasn’t that surprised that they made it a bit more expensive. He didn’t mind the price cause that tend to happen when limited items like this comes out.

Without question my brother bought the FamiCom version. He wanted the NES Classic. Hopefully I get to buy that in exchange, cause I wanted FamiCom and he initially wanted NES Classic. But the latter sell faster because it’s in English unlike FamiCom that is Japanese only.

Katana's mask (Suicide Squad)

katanamask (2)

Ever since watching Suicide Squad I loved the characters, maybe not the movie plot, but the individual characters have their own charm. I especially like Katana and so I made this mask.

(used regular school clay to change the face shape/details of the mask)

katanamask (3)
(a kind of close up of the crack in the mask)

used:
half of mask base
clay (to shape the nose of the mask and to add some details)
glue (to create a barrier onto the clay to add color)
poster color

approx: 3 days

Unagi

Ever since I’ve seen this video and basically any other videos of vloggers in Japan of them talking about food, I’ve always wanted to try Unagi and Natto. Although they said Natto is awful or disgusting or whatever. If there are people who like it, that means it’s not that bad.

But that’s not what we are gonna highlight here. It’s Unagi!!!

My brother wanted to try something Japanese and I remembered that my friends wanted to try this Japanese resto that we didn’t get to eat at cause it was lunch time and there was a long line. The restaurant is called Ippudo.

It was a little spendy but it was so worth it! I’m not a food critic or even a good cook or have tried this to actually describe how appetizing it is.

Before we left and waiting for the bill, a lady from the resto was cleaning up and asked how the food was and if I’ve been there before. Of course I told her it was good and it was my first time. It seemed that their specialty is their ramen. Well that’s what my friends said too and the reason why they wanted to eat there in the first place. But I couldn’t resist to try Unagi, you have no idea how much I have gone through some resto just to try Unagi or Natto if they have one. So definitely try their. I wonder if their ramen have naruto / fishcake… =)
