MSN-06S Sinanju

Another new Gundam Figure once again hahaha....
this one is the MSN-06S Sinanju from the Unicorn Gundam Series. I ordered this product from GundamPlanet.come and have received a CAMPAIGN id ticket. *u*

This is my first order from them. And the main reason for me ordering it from Gundam Planet versus ebay or amazon again.....is that they did a point system! I guess if you purchase enough items from them and build enough points you'd be able to win something? hahahaha. Cool?....xD

I could have probably gotten it for a cheaper price elsewhere but its ok!

Communication: 5/5. they were patient and answered my questions in a very speedy timely manner!
Pricing; 4/5. I'd say their pricing is definitely fair.
Shipping & Packaging: 4/5 only reason why I gave them a 4 instead of a 5 was...I paid for USPS Priority Mail but instead my package was sent via FedEx ground. which took 3-5 days shipping. But who am I to complain considering FedEx is more expensive? xD;;;
the item arrived within the 5th business day considering itis coming all the way from their New Jersey to California.

I'm not sure if I'd order from them again simply because I'm not a very patient person ahaha and there are plenty of model stores/sellers within CA. but the packaging and care they took is good :3
the box within the box was wrapped in bubble wrap and stuffed with paper to keep it from moving at all while in transit.

the plus for this model is that it came with a stand! I was worried it didnt! Ahaha since my other 2 BBs didnt?....

OMG HI MOVIE REVIEW TIME :O since I know the last few entries I've had have been pretty boring to be frank /:
lawl. Unless you're into Gundams and Plastic Models at all hahaha.
So I stumbled on this movie by recommendation of Jei (jeithepeterpan.tumblr.com) some of you guys may recognize her as Queerion from Youtube! *u* that pretty sexy hot thang ;D
but yes moving on before I get super side tracked )8

this is probably my 1st Thai movie outside of Ongbak xD;;; since I guess it was just never in my radar. Well. No, thats a lie. I've seen a few Thai horror movies but not any of this sort and I will be frank. This movie is. CUTE. D8<
and I dont say that about a lot of things. I really dont. But this movie is amazing. Its romantic comedy that tackles the issues of the gender binary and tolerance. 8D

Oh boy am I such a sucker for movies like these! Especially having last seen 'Love my Life' and "Last Friends" several times, I'm defintely in the market for something else to watch that could possibly push just the tid bit of gender bender envelope and lo and behold I stumble on this :DD and I regret nothing. I've probably seen this movie twice already and I'm probably gonna go for a 3rd! Several subs of it are floating around Youtube Not exactly HiQ stuff but you know what, I take what I can get and shall not complain. At all!

So onto the movie summary! :D
Summary: Pie is a sweet girl who has moved into a new dorm where she finds out that Kim, her new roommate seems to be a tomboy. While their friendship is developing, Pie and Kim begin to wonder if the feeling they feel for one another is just an ordinary friendship...

so movie summary was provided by Movie Seer.com and if you click on the link, it has screen shots and even a trailer for the movie if you're interested in seeeing it. I highly recommend it ;D


Ok, onto the post about the movie >8D so yeah basically the movie starts out like most typical movies I guess? Typical romantic comedy movies where the interaction between characters are introduced and its a cute funny scene. If you're familiar with most gender bender mangas or stories the first scene is quote reminiscent of that.
Pie walks out from the shower dressed in nothing but a towel assuming that her room mate IS a girl so it would be OK. To her suprise she sees KIM who is clearly an androgynous looking girl. I prefer to use the word Androgynous as suppose to the word 'Tom' or "Tomboy" as they refer to them in Asia and throughout the movie.
In Asia (dont quote me on this since it can differ) people who are referred to as Toms or Tomboys are usually girls who likes to dress and look like a boy. And are easily mistake to be 'dykes' or straight up lesbian.

What I liked about this movie is that they taught people that love doesnt have to be something about GENDER. It doesnt always have to follow the gender binary or 'whos straight, who isnt, whos gay and who isnt'. Throughout the movie Km expressed herself as a girl who simply dresses the way she does and doesn't necessarily mean shes a TOM.
and they even gave her a more feminine charm to balance her video game addiction by giving her the ability to cook, clean and even plant and grow her own veggies in the balcony. I guess to this day cooking, cleaning and all that stuff is still seen to be a pretty feminine charm. Which I find funny and ironic that Pie was the exact opposite. So I just really loved that tid bit of the movie.

So clearly in the beginning, Pie didnt want anything to have to do with Kim since Kim was a 'tom' and her mom was very old fashioned and couldnt fathom WHY would anyone dress, act or look like that. Throughout the movie even Pie's friend comments at how HANDSOME Kim was *u* but other than the way Kim dresses, there was nothing about her that made you think 'oh shes trying to be a man'. I'm not too familiar with the Thai language but the way she talked (or atleast how the translator did it) showed that she was still referring to her or addressing things in a more feminine manner, she even had a mid to high pitched voice thats still pretty feminine imho.

But yes, Pie ignored her, dodged her and didnt want to have anything to do with her - she even went as far as separating the room with a line division. Now thats just sad and annoying =___=ll its almost like 'hey, no homo so please back off'....but alas thats what she had been raised to knowing.

but throughout the movie they develop a sort of friendship that later on develops into something more....
leading Kim and Pie to both questions themselves on what this is or who they are exactly.

Kim was the first to question 'why does gender have to matter, why does the way I dress, look and act matter? cant I just fall in love with someone because of who they are or because of who I am on the inside?"
that was simply priceless. Pie on the other hand wasnt as quick to join onto the bandwagon until further into the story.

the movie is short and sweet. About and hour and a half, they dont really go into very much detail about the characters past relationships or who the side characters are - where they came from, what exactly were their importance but they were simply there as sort of a bridge to help get the story going. Since it was quite clear that the story if about how Pie and Kim's relationship develops in the span of 1 quarter/semester in college XD;;

In the end Pie realizes what Kim truly meant to her - this being her first real love (for both characters in fact) so its a very innocent love story 8D that pushes the boundaries just a bit as its not your typical boy meets girl type of story.

It showed tolerance for the mothers part to, for her to accept what her daughter wanted. No matter how unorthodox it was. Since in the end it was simply a matter of 'what makes her happy'
now if only the rest of the world could adapt to that....

I would HIGHLY recommend this movie! Especially if you like pretty androgynous people! >8DDDDD

So 3 freakin’ animu stores later and this is all I come back with
LAWWWWWWWWWL. So Fail. I was looking for a Master Grade/Perfect Grade and possibly a BB Senshi Gundam.
But sadly, as clearly shown….Gundam plastic models are becoming more and more rare to find now adays.
The last store I went to was inside Mitsuwa, they only carried HGs of mostly Gundam Wing Gundams. ._. um…that would be last gundams I’d have on my list xDll they also have some from Destiny but only HG.

Guess I’ll be making an order from Gundamplanet after all QwQ;;

edit: ugguuuuu xD I just placed an order for the Sinaju BB Senshi from Gundamplanet.com
if only they had the Gunner Zaku that Lunamaria Hawke piloted too. I would have ordered that. But upon investigating further into ebaaaay I found a store in Huntingon Beach that carries the Gunner Zaku, $14 after shipping. I might just order the gunner zaku next week xD (one gundam at a time.....or I'll overwhelm myself)

Sorry I dont have much to talk about lately but I figured I should dump some photos. Some nice high Q photos since I havent busted out my DSLR since the con season ended. To be honest I kinda miss using it. So hopefully in the next few months or something I'll be able to use it more and more. Since clearly I wont be able to afford to upgrade to a new one in a while. Might as well use this one as much as I can :D;;

New BB Gundam this time around~ Its the ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom Gundam

Had so much fun making these babies. I need a new set of markers so I can finish the shield and a metallic gun metal grey for the rest of the wings.

Painted the joints and arms with gold. beam saber with pink.

I need a new gundam pen for the linings as well. Oh boy. Someone keep me away from gundamplanet.com xDll before I do an order haul...or from Amazon.com either! lmao.
I need to stop browsing for shit I shouldnt be buying.... ie: gundams and makeup...xDlll

PMX 2010

Some random Anon was asking for a photospam on my Tumblr. Lawl.
So I did a photospam of Toshi and Ash for them, and while browsing my hard drive I found some random pictures haha.

heres a picture of myold phone LAWL. I still have this phone. I remember I had to get this phoneAsAP since I broke my LG Ice Cream 2 days before PMX! :o lawwwwl.....

but now I'm sporting a....drumroll....


my new phone. my new case that I got from Ningyoushi.com! *u*
super fast shipping, packaging was good they sent the package via Priority Mail so you're garaunteed to get it within 2-3 days. I got mine within 2?....considering I placed my order over a weekend :D or the friday before a weekend? still. Kewl! :D

I got it for $17. Compared to Amazon and Ebay where everyone is selling it for $25+shipping. I ended up Paying I believe close to it with the shipping and they were a US Seller >8D

my favorite imported french Vodka! *u* cotton candy flavor! very rare!!! Bevmo only really carries the Pinnacle brand and its alot stronger but not as sweet. So if you're looking to get drunk quick. Get the Pinaccle one and its actually alot cheaper than this one!
but I prefer this brand better because: 1. the packaging is awesome. 2. its PINK :o its like peptomismol LAWL. 3. ITS SHWEEET.

I'm very hesitant to drink it now since its $22 a bottle QwQ;; I know there are more expensive alcohols out there but seriously!!!! $22 for a bottle is expensive! D8< and I definetly wanna bring a bottle of it with me to cons coz I know Toshi and Ash really wanna try it / should try it!

Most Bevmo's carry the small 500ml bottles if you wanna use em to try it out and etc...

new haul from Bath & Body works~ the purple candles are frosted cupcake flavor. And I cannot deny the fact that I'd grab anything that smells sweet D8<
the big bottle and cosmetic bags were freebies. I will most likely give half of my haul to my sister for her trip up to Berkley.

random shit in my room.....and yes my room is purple rain....

uh seriously. WHY DONT I OWN THAT?!!

it was totally such a shady transaction, almost like a drug deal LAWL.
We were in the parking lot at 2am (after dinner) at Tajima's Ramen house lawwwwl......

We need a break...shopping therapy

lol my my my. oh hell no. LOL. Yes. I did some mad shopping online with some mad deals the last 2 weeks :D and my packages all came in~

And to explain the title of the blog. As many of you know, me and Toshi took a break from seeing each other for awhile LOL. We spent too much money and time together the last year coming up and down Socal and Norcal to meet up. And AX was our last con together for a while...
and well, apparently the same could go for Ash too. busy with studies. So yeah. We're all pretty much on a hiatus from one another till the next convention season.
I wont see Ash till PMX. Even if we are only 2 cities apart /: oh well....

And Toshi, I wont see till Fanime next year D8 so did some mad shopping LAWWL.

For starters. I got Ash prezzies for birthday~
A bardwire necklace similar to what HYDE wears and I got myself a knock-off Viviene Westwood armor ring from the same ebay shop.
A new iphone 3gs. Yes, I coulda gotten then4gs but why bother when the new one is coming soon enough?! I can take my brothers upgrade and grab it months from now anyway. Its funny since I have an itouch which does almost everything the iphoen can do, minus make calls. Oh well. LOL.

My phone before that decided to give out and be a bitch and simply stop charging! D8<

lol, no pictures of those items, Sorry but heres my little tiny haul from Bath & Body Works. I went in there on whim since I decided I wantd fruity lotion. LAWL. I got travel sizes of everything since I wasnt looking to drop big bucks on a big bottle and I needed a travel sized lotion since my hands gets pretty dry /:

I also got 3 new candles since I'm a sucker for anything nice smelling LOL! Smores and Mint Chocolate Chip! :O ommmg these things SMELLS AMAZING!!! and they were 3 for $5! I'm going back on August 13th to use my coupon and get more LOL and the lady sold me their new fragrance somethingfromParis for $1. It smells REALLY NICE. I got one for my sister, I kinda regret not getting one for myself now LOL. but I'll be back on august 13th and I'll use my coupon and get it for free! HAH! and more candles! Right now I'm burning the Mint Chocolate one since its hot and its summer~ the smell of mint always helps cool anything down HAHA.
and I got the organic lip shine in strawberry and cream thinking it was gonna have a pink tint to it. Lawl. Lies. its just clear /: but it tastes like strawberries and cream. Disapointed. LOL. that there was no color tint to it at all LAWL. its ok, I guess just wear lipstick underneath it /: hurpderp.

Got Ash new headphones too. I spent weeks trying to rack my brain what to get her for her birthday (other than the necklace)
and I decided on the headphones since shes busy studying anyway ;A; I got the black headphones to match the iPod nano Toshi got her last xmas.
Iunno bout you but when I 'study' I prefer to block everyone out with headphones and just concentrate on what the hell I'm suppose to be learning. Hahaha.

and unfortunately I wont be able to hand deliver any of these myself, So I'll have to ship them to her since I promised not to bug her till PMX ;A;

and lastly I ordered a new book off Amazon as well~ Lala Pipo by Hideo Okuda I bet its gonna be an interesting read >D

and Gamfly just sent me 2 new games I have on Q. So Hopefully they will keep me entertained and busy as well~ <3
