Lego Brick Amazing Sale

I so wanted to go to the Brick Amazing Sale in SM Megatrade Hall 1 on Feb 2-5 but I wasn’t able to. I was frantically searching for pictures in the net to see what I have missed out.

Luckily, my sister in law went there and got pictures for me. So, it was like I was there as well. She said the place was huge! And the selection is really good. The Scooby-Doo sets were selling out fast. She wanted to get the Mystery Machine but it was already sold out when she arrived. However, there are some other goods she was able to get.

What sounded really nice were the Seasonal Lego Set like the Easter Egg Painting, Valentine and Thanksgiving. They are being sold for around 300 Php. (Photo Credits: Google)

So, here’s what you can see in the sale… have fun!

Disney Store Newbies

Hello Folks! Happy 2017! As for my new year’s resolution. I’ll try to stay away from toys and online shopping as much as possible. Haha. However, I’ve stumbled upon Disney Store and saw the new products for 2017. Now, I’m regretting to have such new year’s resolution.

Here are some of the things that captured my attention.

Musical Tsum Tsum – I love Tsum Tsum, the game and the plush, and they have came up with Musical Ones. And started off with Ariel. This is for $14.95.

Animators’ Collection -Belle Micro Playset – This toy costs $19.95 and the detail is fantastic. I love to have my own set.  The set is also available for Frozen and Tinkerbell.

 

Animators’ Disney Doll Collection – 15 Dolls for $119.95. I think I am drawn to Animators’ Collection Series Merchandise. The attention to detail is really good. I can’t help but be fascinated.

Animators’ Collection Deluxe Figure – This set costs $24.95 and I love Ariel in this. This one, I want to convert into Christmas Ornaments.

Hold on… they have actually released an Ornament version of the figure for $59.95.

Tea Time – Plates for $14.95 and Cups for $7.95

Animators’ Collection Mini Doll Set – available in various designs for $19.95

That’s it for now folks… if it has gotten your attention… go check out DisneyStore

We got this toy for Christmas and I’m glad that we did.  Because it’s so much fun to play with.  

The set comes with Muck,  a can and a pack of sand.  Muck has tons of patterns you can use.  And since it’s sand,  it’s easy to get the sand pattern out. Just mold and flip it.  The final product is also impressive.  Quite detailed actually. 

I like how the sand don’t have smell. It doesn’t make me puke.  And the texture is just right.  Not sticky to hands.  But it’s sticky to the rest of the sand making the clean up easy. 

The set was enjoyable to Edward and me. We played for more than an hour upon opening. Although,  Edward has a different way of playing.  He likes to cover the diecasts with sand and pretend that it’s a ghost.  Quite imaginative.  Haha. 

There are also other variants,  Scoop and Roley.  We would get Roley next time.  

Christmas Tags – Cars 2

Hello Folks, Christmas is just around the corner. When I asked Edward what design should I put in his gift tags, he said Cars 2. So, I tried to layout some gift tags for him. (Disclaimer: I’m sorry I wouldn’t be able to give proper credit to the clipart I’ve used. I used Google and lost track of the ones I used… I’m sorry… but I’m really thankful for the clips)

Sharing my final layout…

So… as I was up a bit early… I’ve decided to browse through social media and I saw a preview of My Ear’s Candy with Jang Keun Suk. One thing lead to another and I’m done with the first episode, JKS part only.

My Ear’s Candy is a reality show where he was given a phone to talk to an anonymous person. The personality of the person was what he requested for to be his friend/confidant. And he can talk to her until the battery of the cellphone dies. So they chat, talk or do video calls.

Honestly, the JKS I saw there was very different from what I perceived of him. He seems to be really outgoing and I thought he would have tons of friends. But in Episode 1, he does seem lonely. He lives alone in his house and has a pet cat named Kiki.

My heart aches seeing him cook his own meal in very small portion as he needs to maintain his weight. I guess those are the sacrifices of stars. And sometimes, we don’t see how much they give for our entertainment.

I liked how he gets jittery or how he gets embarrassed. It’s very natural like we can see a glimpse of his life. I also liked seeing how he lives in real life. Somehow, this show gave a way for us to see what he is interested in. Like his home theater system, collection or his car.

I am so looking forward to seeing the next episode. It’s like getting to know him more… the real him…

I am back at the book fair. And this year is probably the least haul I have. I was planning to go in the morning but it rained, so I was forced to postpone my trip. Eventually, I was able to drop by after dropping Edward in school.

I like Adarna’s setup this year. The sale pile is more organized. And the books looks brand new. At 30 Php each. Newer books are selling at 60 Php. 

There’s no bargain pile in National Bookstore again, I was able to grab a Paw Patrol book. I was aiming to get some My Busy Book but only a few selection was available.

Summit promo is good, for every purchase of new magazine, you can get a back issue for free. 

Fully booked books seems more expensive than National Bookstore. Their busy book was almost 700 Php. Considering it’s only around 500 Php in National. But selection wise, they have more. I was able to pick up the game I was targetting last year. It has the same price, but since I’m getting less books this year, I was able to afford it. 

Come to think of it, seems I didn’t see much Lego Minifigure books this year. I’ve skip the graphic novels and religious stores since Katsu wasn’t with me this year. Majority are textbooks.

I was able to pick up a few good things in Learning is Fun. 

From EdCrisch, a book about fire station.

I was able to have my book signed also at Lampara. 

There you go… My 2016 stash. 

Kurosaki_kun_no_Iinari_ni_Nante_Naranai.jpg

The movie was recommended by my sister. And before watching I saw 2 episodes with the same name. Turns out, the 2 episodes are to be watched before the movie.

The plot of the story is… Akabane Yu wants to change her life. She doesn’t want to be the laughing stock anymore. Her parents move away and she is forced to stay in a dorm where it was ruled by the Dorm Leader, also known as the White Prince (Takumi Shirakawa). And vice Dorm Leader, also known as the Black Demon (Haruto Kurosaki). Yu defied Haruto, in turn he kissed her and made her his slave. Ordering her to do things like cleaning the dorm and the like. Yu is fascinated with the White Prince, who is very gentle towards her and pretended to be her boyfriend. Haruto is interested in Yu and saves her in various occasion.

Story is simple enough to digest, I enjoyed the episodes and the movie. What’s lacking is the build up of the love story. Somehow, the story is shortened too much. And there was a time wherein I wondered, when did they start loving each other?

I tried to read the manga after watching. And I got to understand the story better. How I wish that the Live Action had more episodes, then we would be able to enjoy more of the storyline. Nevertheless, I truly enjoyed it. The manga is not yet complete as of now, so I don’t know how the story would end. Hopefully, it would still be as interesting as the start. So far, I love the scenes where Haruto saves Yu in the manga. Haruto is 格好いい.
