Virtual Love: 「ラブプラス+」(Love Plus+) Extensive Review

October 5, 2010 at 2:00 PM

Have you heard about 「ラブプラス+」 (Love Plus)? I’m sure lonely Japanese men (and women) have heard of it. If they haven’t, then there’s a possibility that they were in a coma.

An Eye Exam, Shrek 4-D, Moving Balls Toy

May 28, 2010 at 2:26 PM

MY EYE EXAM

Last Wednesday, I had an eye exam at the college’s new faculty in the morning. I’ve been having bad allergic reactions since I’ve been in KL since 2006. So i’ve been doing a lot of rubbing on my eye. So I got worried and since the new Faculty of Optometry & Vision Sciences is opened and they offer free full eye exam at the moment, so I said why not, right? I mean it’s free. So I went to set up an appointment.

The eye exam took like an hour because it was a thorough eye exam. So you know the usual stuff – they used the machines to check the eyes, the vision, then the blurriness, check for color blind etc.. it did take like an hour-ish for it to finish. So the verdict? I’m short sighted. Which I already know.. and told him my glasses have been crooked for like ages, so I’d need a new one, but their place to sell it haven’t opened yet so he’ll give me a call when it does. Other than that, nothing wrong, which is quite a surprise to me since I’ve been having a lot of allergies. He did say I have like tiny bumps on the lid or something, which means I do have allergies so better to go to clinic to get it checked. They can only give artificial tear drop but it would be just a temporary relief.

Finished at 12 pm. Then I called my friend and we went to Ikea for lunch and had hotdog. Their hotdog and curry puffs are ‘the awesomeness’. The only cheap alternatives when you’re so damn broke haha.

SHREK 4 THE FINAL CHAPTER 3D

I was supposed to pick mom up to send to the clinic after lunch hour, but after countless tries phoning her and she didn’t pick up, I decided to watch a movie with Claudia. She wanted to watch Kick-Ass while I want to watch Shrek in 3D. You see, I’ve been a fan of Shrek movies, and since Hollywood now are so crazy with the 3D trend, I thought hey, why not watch Shrek in 3D. Besides, I want to watch it in 3D before I go back to my hometown next week because the cinema at my hometown is sooooooo lame that they don’t have 3D. Kick-Ass movie is no longer showing so it was either Shrek or A Nightmare on Elm Street. Oh I so wanna watch Nightmare on Elm Street because I wanna see how they remake the classic – even though it won’t be the same as original as Freddy isn’t played by Robert Englund (he’s the only best Freddy!) and no hot young Johnny Depp 😛 But Claudia didn’t want to watch scary movie so I had to force her to watch Shrek in 3D 😛 After all the forcing and pleading she gave in hehehehe.

I don’t want to give extensive review on the movie because I have another website for my movie reviews. The movie is good! It’s soooo hilarious. I actually love this better than the 3rd one. On the 3D review, I love watching movies in 3D. Some says 3D sucks because you don’t get like stuff coming towards you and make you go WHOOOAAA, but it’s not all about that. 3D gives you the depth also.. makes the surrounding and characters come to life as if you’re there instead of flat 2D. There are some scenes where you feel the elements go ‘out of the screen’ like smoke, those magic particles.. and like stuff almost coming to you. Overall, 3D Shrek is better than 3D Alice in Wonderland. I’ve also watched Nightmare before Christmas 3D before and it was awesome because you see the snow falls right in front of you.. the verdict? Watch in 3D if it’s ANIMATION MOVIE, but don’t watch 3D if it’s just a normal movie unless you don’t care about the effect, and just want the depth.

I wonder how they’re gonna make the last Harry Potter’s movie in 3D? They better make it good!

My favorite part of Shrek 4 is when Puss in Boots give the sad puppy dog eyes to Donkey 3 times! OMG I couldn’t stop laughing at that! OMG thinking of it now makes me laugh. That’s the funniest part ever because when my Ipoh friend and I watched the first Shrek movie, we couldn’t stop talking about how Puss in Boots did the sad eyes in the first movie.. now they made it longer so it’s even more hilarious.

Go watch Shrek 4! It’s t3h-awesomeness!

Oh yeah, while waiting for Shrek 4, we spent a long time at Daiso and discovered a new toy that is so addictive. I mean – if you can picture a box of the top toys for a 4 year old boy, this would be right at the top of the pile.

MOVE A BALL: BRAIN TRAINING
ムービングボール脳を活性化!

We spent a long time playing this at Daiso until after the movie, I decided to get this!

This is Claudia (her hand actually) playing with it after I bought it. When we played with it in Daiso, everybody was looking at how crazy we were with a baby rattle looking thing in our hands. So what the hell is this? It’s actually a brain training game!

How do you play this? If you can’t read the Japanese, I’ll roughly translate it for you. Basically it says the aim of the game is to have one color separated at each sides. So you have to start with all the balls mixed up at one side, then shake/roll/swing whatever you like to move one color to the other side. I find it easier to play once you have the toy out of the packaging and I find it easier to roll instead of shaking the thing. For example, you want to have blue colored balls at the right side and orange colored ball at the left side. When it’s done, it looks like this!

Done!

Haha I love that girl cartoon! That’s how I look like when I play the toy. It makes you frustrated, it makes you cuss, it makes you happy, it makes you giggle.. basically the toy will fuck with your head. Haha. Love it.

Only in Daiso! Geez, the Japanese and their crazy inventions.. even a simple toy that looks like a baby rattle that cost RM 5 (100 yen, or around USD 1+) can make you addicted. But it’s fun, so what the hell. I actually played with this when I went shopping with mom after that and everybody was looking at me.

Oh I also got the book “Pride & Prejudice & Zombies“.. yay! Finally. I love anything with zombies. I’ve read “I am Scrooged: A Zombie Story for Christmas” before and I loved it! I’m the kind of person who hates reading books unless it’s very interesting.. so zombies? Of course it’s interesting 😀 Since I have not read the original Pride & Prejudice, so this is the time right? With a little bit of zombies to add the spice.

Windows 7 is t3h s3x

I INSTALLED WINDOWS 7 O_O

Omg I installed an OS dammit, something I never thought I could do. I was scared shitless that I would screw up everything and thus render my PC unusable but thank God everything worked out fine 😀 So I decided to install Windows 7 Ultimate because once I saw the GUI in youtube video, and how people keep talking about how good and how fast it is, and much better than Vista that was an epic fail, I decided I’m going to install it. I DESPISE Windows XP. I guess I’ve been using the same ‘windows’ typical look since Windows 95, and that I’m used to Vista and all the glassy aero look.

I can say I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Windows 7 😀 It’s much faster and less buggier than Windows Vista, so far. Love the simple clean look, the taskbar where they’re only (grouped) icons, the changing desktop themes.. everything. If you’ve been wondering whether to update to Windows 7 from XP or Vista, I’d say DO IT. Definitely. I did a clean install cuz I don’t want any trace of Windows XP in my HDD. At first I thought I wanted a dual boot, but nah.. Not going back to XP. Plus I have way too many junks, I want to get rid of them and start fresh. I did backup my stuff. Now, thing is.. there are some things that I forgot to backup like my Photoshop & After Effects plugins/brushes, my yahoo chat.. and I was like FUCK. But turns out Windows 7 moved all my old stuff in a new folder, so I didn’t lose anything.. ain’t that great? So happy about that.

Now I have to reinstall all my stuff again.. including some of my games @_@ Which is gonna be a pain in the ass, cuz they take really long to install. And another thing, I partitioned my own drive 😀 Ahh technology.. before when you need to partition your drive, you have to go to DOS and do it manually, etc and it was very complicated.. now it’s all so easy. I’m actually proud of myself for not screwing up anything this time.

Speaking of screwing up, I screwed up my PR exam yesterday. OMG it was SO HARD. I couldn’t even think properly. Everything that I read, I can’t remember any! So I just wrote whatever shit I can think off, hopefully that, and the multiple choice questions plus assignments would be enough for me to pass.. I can’t hope for an A now, I’m very sad. I would not get over this for a long time.

I tested Second Life in Windows 7… ahh, I forgot how beautiful and tranquil some places in Second life can be… I haven’t logged on for like a year? Almost? It used to be my getaway place when I need to relax, or just temporary forget my real life problems… I used to love to go to a forest or a park or the beach in there, listen to the soft music, nature sounds.. crackling of camp fire, and just stare at the screen for a while. Believe it or not, it helped me to relax and forget my problems. If not, club hopping and just listen to the good music. And if you meet some good people, you can have a good conversation with them. Plus, it’s good for photography.. I love taking snapshots of beautiful places in SL. In December, I’m gonna make my return in SL. If i can’t get real life vacation after graduation showcase is over, I’m vacationing in SL.

I have more to blog but I’ll do it later today. I’m gonna reinstall some stuff now before I have to go to college. God now my final project is giving me a headache. And I can’t find my Microsoft Office 2007 installation file, so I can’t do my pre production stuff for my final project. This is stressing me out. I’m getting stress zits.. and I can’t stand this bad breakouts. I’ve tried a lot of different acne treatments but at last, I go back to wanting the stupid accutane which screws up the menstrual cycle, my mood.. but hey, I’d have a clean, non-oily, zit-less face!

ndsl or ndsi?

September 28, 2009 at 3:59 PM

Yesterday I went to a place here in Ipoh where they sell all electronics stuff… well of course can’t compare to Low Yatt or Digital Mall in KL but it’s the best we can get. I was surveying the price of nintendo ds lite and dsi. Good thing is, NDSL has gone cheaper. I can get the whole package like I did (R4, 2GB memory card, screen protector and crystal casing) for roughly RM520 instead of RM700 that I got last year.. well I had pouch thrown in. If I just want the console, the cheapest I see is about RM440.

However, NDSi is fucking expensive here. If I want the console + R4i + screen protector + 2GB memory card with games = Rm8xx! Almost a fricken RM900! Crazy. Well it’s almost the same if I imported from Play-Asia without all other stuff.. but oh man that’s expensive. I have someone from Low Yatt forum to suggest me the lowest price possible.. he listed as DSi RM 6xx.. which is quite ok, however it’s just the console. If that’s the case, I can get flashcart online.. just around USD$13 which is way cheaper instead of buying it here but I’m risking myself. If the product is spoiled, then I’m screwed.

I still don’t know what to get. If I get the same NDSL as my old one, I can still play my Guitar Hero… no worries about new firmware update that will brick the flashcart due to their anti piracy protection… and it’s cheaper now so I can save money. And there’s no other color that I love other than metallic rose.

However, with DSi, I have extra camera feature.. which is not a big thing but it’s a nice add on where you can upload pic directly to facebook.. download dsiware… FLIPBOOK.. omg that’s like the coolest DSi application.. no rebooting when changing cartridge, but it’s more expensive.. plain color, but it’s okay, I can just pimp it up with stickers.  No more guitar hero. And new firmware will keep bricking flashcart.. argh.

I saw Promotional flash drive, but not for portable external HDD… I’m finding it extremely difficult to carry my huge non portable external HDD back Ipoh, and can’t take it anywhere. I want 500Gb :\ PC fair is like couple of months away x.x Well it’s okay, that gives me time to save money.

EDIT: After watching a couple of DSi unboxing videos on youtube and looking at the reviews, I have made up my mind, I’m getting a DSi. I don’t care, I want a DSi.

The Sims 3

June 14, 2009 at 12:52 AM

I was told that when loading this blog, there’s a warning about malicious malware. Strange thing is that I don’t get any warning when using firefox, but I do get it for like a split second when I use google chrome. Anyways.

I don’t know what to blog about. Been busy the whole week. I came back from Ipoh on Tuesday. Rushed from Ipoh at 7 am and I drove at 140 kmph, and I have never driven that fast before. I managed to reach KL exactly at 8.30 am. Awesomeness.

We managed to shoot half of our planned music video. It has been fun so far.

I finished downloading THE SIMS 3. I’ve been waiting for it for ages. It is the awesomeness. Took me almost a week to download the 5.5 GB file. It’s completely different from The Sims 2. Much better graphic too. The people is not cartoonish looking anymore, they actually look nice. The neighborhood is nicer, good thing is that NO MORE LOADING SCREEN. So that means when your Sim go to work, you can actually follow, but you can’t see them working though. You can go anywhere in the neighborhood including visiting other Sim without the loading screen all the time.

The buttons/menu is totally different from the previous game. More nicer. I’m still trying to get used to things in The Sims 3. So far I just killed my Sim after less than an hour of gameplay due to electrical shock. The game lags a bit because it’s quite heavy since the whole neighborhood is active at the same time. Also, you can customize almost everything in the Sims. It’s awesome.

However, The Sims 3 only comes with one neighborhood. There’s a free neighborhood that you can download for free but since mine is illegal copy, I can’t download anything which requires legal copy and sim points so no extra stuff. Well okay, off to exploring The Sims 3 while doing my work at the same time. Ciao.
