Novels and Stuff


Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu (The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi) and Suzumiya Haruhi no Tameiki (The sigh of Suzumiya Haruhi)

Got them from Kinokuniya, and had a hard time hunting it down, including the staff people there even though the system helped to guide us to where it was kept but it was hard looking for it as it was placed next to some kid books and gamebooks in the Japanese section. Thanks to the staff of Kinokuniya for their hardwork. Btw, bought this a month ago and barely completed the 1st chapter. T_T

And going around PJ (Petaling Jaya) hunting for something I want but it was so hard to find, I ended up using the internet to look for it and at last, I found it.

Its a bokuto, or bokken as most people know it. Its a wooden katana for training in the art of iaijutsu/battojutsu(sword drawing but battojutsu does more slashes than iaijutsu where one draws the sword and slash once) and kenjutsu(sword art).

Price-wise, not bad considering getting from a dojo nearby cost me nearlt rm100 but this, I bought from a second hand store where I heard a closing dojo desperately sell it away and cost me rm22. Cheers!

And this also!

Another MG kit to add to my collection. Its Strike Noir from Seed Destiny CE. The dual hand-gun is an attraction to me. *drools* And the build quality, very good, as good as the 1st Aile Strike as its the same structure except a few modification to the cockpit area hatch access, the wrist, knee area on the leg and a different backpack. Rest, its the same, with a different colour *thinking of spraying it back to Aile Strike colour* XD.

I had to modify the backpack a little as I do not like how it hangs and its loose, so used a blade and start carving out pieces of plastic from the runners and made a locking mechanism to the original axle of the backpack.

Thats all for now. I bought a few more Hotwheels cars, and found my old all-time favourite car, a Go-Kart!
