Are you happy?

I'm not sure how I'd answer this question at this point in time. Will I look back someday and wonder what made me feel this way?

There's no direction.

I want to tell you everything.

But the thing we have right now is so wonderful I don't want it to break.

So I've decided not to tell you.

I'm sorry I'm not brave enough to go through this alone.

A gamer's life

I just placed a preorder for the Playstation VR.

I'm still not sure if it's going to be a good or bad decision.

And a PS4 to accompany it.

Goodbye outside life.

Collector's Edition

I smell a pretty Collector's Edition for the World of Final Fantasy.

Why is it only for the PS4? Why isn't there any for the Vita?

Dear Sony, I still haven't bought my PS4 ever since rumours came out about a newer console coming out. Here's hoping that it comes out soon.
m(_ _)m お願いします

New Danganronpa animes? I'M IN.

Such is life.

I have finally gotten over the fact that I'm not a useless bum. I think this year's my lucky year! Even though last year was the snake year... Things are looking pretty good I must say even though it was a rough start. (Maybe I should have changed my phone's wallpaper to MatsuJun a little earlier... he seems to bring luck)

Ever since I changed my wallpaper, things have been going very well. I feel happy looking at it after a long days' work and I feel energised before I switch off my phone for work. (The craziness of a fan girl...)

Trust...

No one.
For one day, that trust would be put into question.
In times like this, I just want to hide in a hole and be away from people.

Begone o dreary one!

Begone to the depths of the universe!

Why are there a few people with "extra" tickets to sell when each person was limited to two? Something smells fishy, Shaw. It's annoying at best that you disregard your terms and conditions. Heck, if it was balloting, I'd feel so much better about this. (♯`∧´)

ARGH!

I hope they catch you and put you in jail for not changing. Making sock-puppet accounts on eBay now are we?

I hope karma comes your way. It's the age of technology; nothing goes undetected. I hope you're ready.

What?

What do a ticket seller, arashi items seller and another ticker seller have in common?
Their birthdates! Who would have guessed?

This should be named the coincidence of the century.

You cannot possibly imagine the probability of having 3 different people selling the same things with the same birthdate! This is what you call an epic phenomenon of epic proportions!

World Record!

Right.

Scamming 101

A scam should be carried out by a scam artist. They should be articulate and meticulous in their writing. When you say 'I', don't go putting 'we' in your next sentence. Don't reveal the fact that you have accomplices. It won't do them any good. Be creative, come up with something original.

Be discreet when you want to create multiple accounts. Use someone else's birthday. You know that there are 365 other days to choose from including the 29th of February, so why didn't you? You're welcome. Choose another place of residence unless the system decides it for you. If it does, choose another day to create second account BUT ALWAYS remember (I cannot emphasize enough on this) to choose another birthdate.

Don't sell the same thing only a few days apart. Make it a week apart at least so your first post would be overwhelmed by newer posts that people have forgotten about your first post.

Use your own product photographs. At least, those that cannot be traced and not retrieved from Google Sensei. Make sure all images have the same resolution and show the same things (if you're selling a couple of the same item). Avoid putting blurry and clear photographs together; it just makes you look like a bad photographer.

Come up with a believable talltale. Not some essay your younger sibling's friend's brother's cousin's pet hamster's abominable snowman wrote for their English assignment hoping to fail with flying colours. YES, FAIL.

Please find it in your conscience to stop before you take what is not yours. It's not the money alone. It's the trust the person chose to put in you and the belief that you are merely trying to help. Online it may seem easier to deal with the guilt (assuming you have any) since you're taking something from someone you don't know but there's something called IP ADDRESSES.

x-posted.

I still remember the first time I got scammed. I was young. I had saved enough money to buy that autographed McFly DVD off eBay. Paypal wasn't so established yet and I didn't have a credit card so I sent a money order by registered mail. The seller claimed that he didn't receive the payment and requested me to pay by Paypal. I said no and that I would enquire with the post office. The post office was much slower back then. The seller said he couldn't do much so he put the item back online for bidding. The report came in from the post office much later to tell me that the addressee had received the mail and even cashed in the money order.

I don't understand what kind of sick thrill people get from cheating someone else of their money.

And this argumentum ad misericordiam is getting on my nerves.

Talk about a guilty conscience!

The wonders of photoshop

At times, your eyes are bigger.
At times, your cheeks are non-existent.
At times, your face looks longer.
At times, your face looks compact.

Why do I see these differences?
Why can't it be consistent?
Why do you change your face so much?
Why can't you be consistent?

Yes, you look like dolls.
No, abnormal humans.
Yes, some people like it.
No, abnormal humans.

Yet when I see you in real life,
You aren't a doll.
Yet when I see you in real life,
Your cheeks are huge.

I need... to... press... Those numbers................................

Dearest FedEx, UPS and Speedpost,

I doubt you are the same company here in little sunny Singapore yet you make the exact same mistake. You have made me doubt Amazon a few times because of your mistakes. I'll assume the mistakes were made by you because my Amazon packages all have the right addresses. You always claim to have the wrong address and therefore cannot carry out the delivery. If it was a one-off event, I wouldn't be typing this. All three companies have taken down my address wrongly on your systems. Why is that 5 so difficult to input? It's only ONE number yet you always mess up. 

You then mention that Amazon provided the wrong address. Am I seeing things with my package? I seem to see an imaginary 5 there that shipping companies can't see. This little mistake has cost me a lot of grief. If you can't see the address ON the box and always refer to your little electronic devices to get the address, what is the point of having the address on the box? Furthermore, my phone number is listed but no, you decide not to call and just list the item as undelivered at best. 

Another point, UPS customer service. I'm really sorry for myself that I didn't get your name. I called yesterday 3 August 2012 at 9.2x p.m. I asked where the delivery man was. You mentioned my address and I told you that the unit number was wrong.

CSO: Can we arrange for delivery tomorrow?
Me: It's been out for delivery the whole day!
CSO: Okay, he will come before 10 p.m.
Me: But he has the wrong address...?
CSO: Ya......

What do you mean 'Ya'???

And she said she'd call me back. Guess what? No, it's not even worth guessing because the answer's plain obvious. 

So I called back at 9.45 p.m.

How long does it take to make a call back to the customer?
You tell me, I can't fathom the amount of effort it takes to pick up the phone and dial my number.

P.S: Only once was the address wrongly written BUT my phone number was there. Come on.

Engrish pees!

I was collecting my play tickets at Somerset yesterday.

Customer Service Officer: So you are collecting tickets for two plays?
Me: Yes.
CSO: For the plays, Potted Potter and Gad... The event on Saturday?
Me: Um... Yeah?

LOL ( ̄▽ ̄)

The play title became the event on Saturday. I'm sure it was supposed to be the GOD of Carnage though. She had that accent that pronounced God (as in pod) as Gad. 

...CSO?

Did you know?

Me: I'm buying the tickets as long as the play's on a Saturday okay?
Sis: Yup.

A few days later...

Sis: Hey, did you know Adrian Pang's acting in a play?
Me: Uh...
Sis: It's called 'God of Carnage'.
Me: ...
Sis: You wanna go?
Me: I already bought the tickets. Remember I told you I'd be buying the tickets?

( T_T)\(^-^ )

Well, results are out. I got what I'd expected myself to get. Troilus did stay true. I guess I'm a good Cressida. Now, the hunt starts.


Poyo poyo and Chibi Tamagotchis.

My little 3DS

Poyo poyo coming soon. (=^ェ^=)
The only game I've completed is the tamagotchi music game which went for 200yen.
Trying to play Kingdom Hearts in order now. (⌒-⌒; )

So there I was, waiting for the tickets for God of Carnage to come up. 

To have them announce a delay.

(♯`∧´)

Haven't watched any Arashi videos lately. Maybe I'm growing up? 

That's funny.

I no longer need them to brighten up my days. Maybe it's because my days are no longer gloomy. Oh well (⌒-⌒; )

Catching Pokemon on the 3ds is fun!

Hmm...

I told my dad to buy Tokyo Banana Pies when he was in Japan. He came back with four boxes. Now I'm stuffed with bananas and look like a banana. That made no sense.

Haven't really played with the 3ds. I've got to say though, the Japanese dub of Kingdom Hearts is so much nicer to listen to. 
( ´ ▽ ` )

My Wakuwaku goods are coming. My pikachu 3ds case is coming. 

Sometimes I start thinking about writing blogs like these. What do I really want out of it? Why should I be displaying my feelings out to the world? Who cares?

I guess I should keep a real journal instead. 
I can't post pictures! Irritating!

To sell or not to buy

Yamapi, why do you have to release 4 copies of an album? I have to get so many just to get the extra stuff!

I'm broke... And the release date is only a few weeks away from the single. ( ;´Д`) I guess I should count myself a little lucky since I only support Arashi and Yamapi. Still...

I need a job. I should just sell my books. 



The Penguin Books sale was great. Managed to get better books this time around. d(^_^o)
