  • I used to be a dedicated golfer during the dot com era where, but it's been almost 5 years since I had gone out to golf.  However, I have an opportunity to attend a holiday celebration party, more like a social gathering with a bunch of old colleagues at an executive facility last night; so I thought, why not take this chance to meet up with some old friends and in the mean time, see if I can still swing a club like I used to!

  • Although I am much less of the PVC figure collector these days, actually I don't even allocate budget for PVC figures these days.  However, there are still some notable exceptions, the upcoming Rin Tohsaka 1/7 Unlimited Blade Works version is one such exception.  I have made no secret in the past that I have always been a Rin Tohsaka fan, more so than the original Saber.  It has always bothered me that Saber got all the glory from being the main heroine of Fate/Stay Night and got all the merchandise treatment, while leaving the equally likable Rin Tohsaka in the uncomfortable position, lacking any major merchandising love... in fact, in my opinion, there hasn't been one single Rin Tohsaka PVC figure that's worthy to be her namesake!  While I was extremely fortunate in a way that I was able to acquire her Dollfie Dream form to ensure  she has a proper representation in my harem lineup; however, that is not to say that I won't try to acquire a proper representation in PVC form either.  Since Unlimited Blade Works is my favorite arc of the original story, it just made the decision making process that much easier!

  • Well this is it folks, I mentioned in my last Fortune Arterial blog post that we are about to see some of the plot related secrets unfold and we have seen exactly just that.  The story elements have most definitely switched into high gear this week with the secret behind Haruna's amnesia and the true identity of Kuze Kiriha unfolding in front of our very eyes.  I have always been rather certain that the anime adaption is following the path of the true arc from the game; but after this episode, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that's exactly what we are going to get.  Now, before I spoil any more of the secrets, let me cut myself off and switch to the memorable scene sharing, shall we?  Starting right with this post, I am going to start using some spoiler tag feature to avoid exposing too much of the secrets~

  • The day after Thanksgiving in US, commonly referred to as Black Friday, marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season.  Last year, I made my pilgrimage  to a local Fry's Electronic Store to shop for components for my multimedia server.  This year, I have little next to no plan to do any shopping at all, since I have already set my sight into next month for the upcoming Dolpa 24.  However, it is the holiday season after all and I have managed to have some Thanksgiving Turkey dinner with my two daughters here~

  • I have been thinking about writing an article related to the stain removal process for Dollfie Dream for some time now.  Staining is problem that every Dollfie Dream collector have to confront at some point, it simply cannot be avoided in some cases since vinyl parts are extremely prone to staining.  Some collector would opt to only allow their Dollfie Dream to wear light colored clothes, but I am different.... I like my girls to whatever I like them to be in.. in most cases, dark colored clothing!  I am not afraid of staining!!!  I just need to have an effective strategy to combat the stain!!  Conventional treatment for vinyl stain is to use acne cream that contains up to 10% Benzoyl Peroxide, while it is somewhat effective but the treatment process can take up to a month or longer if the stain is deep within the vinyl.  Today, I would like to talk about a product call Remove-Zit, a chemical that is designed to remove color stain from soft vinyl about 3X faster!

  • It's been quite some time since I have last written a loot post... but don't think for a moment that I have stopped pampering my girls!  The latest round of loots I have acquired between October and November have finally arrived, so let's take a look at them.  Today I have asked my *ahem* mysterious daughter and Kiriha to help show case the loots~ Some of these cloth sets were acquired directly from DD Gathering event that was held at the end of October, but since there is so much demand for these dresses that it was nearly impossible to acquire everything in one event.  I ended up having to resort into Yahoo Japan Auction for some of these.

  • I have been saying that we are inching closer to the main story line of Fortune Arterial for several weeks in a row now, onto episode 7, we are "finally" arriving at the core of the story-the Sendo Erika arc.  For those of you who are wondering where is the vampire element of the story, it's finally here!  If the script writer's intention is to follow the true arc of the story, then the Sendo Erika arc we are seeing now should serve as the baseline to answer to of the previously unanswered questions, why is the Togi Family considered the leader of the island? Why Kiriha acts the way she does ?  What exactly happened to Haruna?  It is taking some huge effort in my part to avoid spoiling the story at this point because we are so close but yet if I were to say anymore than I did, that would certainly take away some of the excitement from discovering the intricacy of the entire story.  Anyway, allow me to cut myself off and share some of the memorable screen shots~
