life as an semi-otaku

Although I’m not a real otaku. I believe I share the same level of passion like them. There’s so many fun things to do out there for me. But so little time. *this is where I mention a pill that allows people to stay awake for days without sleep*


So much to watch, and with my new ADSL2 10Mbps line, I’m downloading new stuff faster than I can finish watching them. AH! I forgot I wanted to watch Sentou Yousei Yukikaze over the weekend!

For now, I’m currently crazy over plane mechas like the Macross Valkyries or the cool planes in Yukikaze.

Model kits:
Thanks to Macross Zero, I’ve been wanting to get hold of one of them planes. I was down at Sunshine Plaza last Saturday and found a VF-0S kit, imported from Japan going for $50SGD. But due to my lack of painting skills, I decided to hold back. I was hoping to find something nice and cheap to play around painting with.

There seems to be a certain Mr. Nakamoto who teaches air brush painting for just $50. Paint, accessories provided for the training. There are many positive comments about his service. I’ve asked for more details about him.

I don’t know if I want to purchase an airbrush kit because there’s no space left in my room for me to pick up this new hobby.  

The estimated price of PS3 was announced to members of Gamescore. $1399 for the 20GB model, $1599 for the 60GB model. This price is too crazy for me. Perhaps I’ll get the PS2 mini instead. Still pondering. Games I want to play on the PS2: FFX, FFX-2, FF12, Silent Hill, Fatal Frame. The reason I’m holding back is because of FFXI, I may end up leaving my PS2 untouched for months.

I want to play more of FFXI. Need more merits for my DRK and parrying skill ups for my PLD. But thanks to my unstable internet connection, I won’t be meritting for a while unless with friends and only doing assault, dynamis, sky, mission, limbus events with friends. A lot of time is spent here doing these.

PSP keeps me occupied during my trip to and from work, Playing Gyakuten Saiban 2 on NDS to relax before I sleep.

Oh, and FF3DS, US version, is coming soon in about 2 weeks! 

I want to watch "Death Note" and "Sinking of Japan"! But… no time… orz

There’s also a few DVDs that I bought but haven’t watched. 

Because of all you friends out there from all over the world that I’ve made through a Mass Multiplayer Online RPG, Final Fantasy 11, I’ve ben itching to get a digital camera and take pictures of sights around Singapore and show them to you guys. Places that aren’t tourist attractions, places that are not noticed by the general public.

But a good digicam is worth $800. About 400 plates of delicious yet simple chicken rice…

Also, I forsee myself leaving the camera unused for months. So I’m also holding back for a while. I lack photography skills too.

A lot of beautiful sights can never be captured on film. The atmosphere for example. A beautiful scene must be appreciated along with the atmosphere. (Am I making sense here?)

I need to tidy up my room. Books, papers, CDs all over the place. >_>

My major problem is dust. It seems that does accumulates very fast in my room. Is this normal? Is there anything I can do to reduce dust accumulation? 

I may apply for a few days off work next week to catch up on all the things I want to do. Whether or not they benefit me for the future, I just want to have fun while I’m still young. You never know when you’re gonna die!

As I write today’s entry, I’ve decided to go get the Macross VF-0S plane first before someone else gets it. When I saw that box, it was the only 1 left on the shelf!
