I was a bit hesitant to buy it before it was released, but now, I'm glad I did buy the handheld console. This thing is freaking huge but very comfortable to hold and quite lightweight.
You gotta hold and play it to believe it I suppose.

One thing I don't like about transferring files is that you will need to have to download and install a software on your PC first before you can transfer files. And not the usual Right-click-copy-paste, everything is done through the VITA's file manager.

Still... an awesome device. :)

Sony Alpha NEX-5n

Now, I'm no pro-photographer or whatever, I'm just a newbie trying out various things with my new toy. :)

One day, I hope I'll be able to take those awesome macro shots you often see on the internet.

Here's some good(or not so good) test pictures I've taken. The last 2 shots were simply me being bored.

My first dig at the partial colour (red in this case) feature of the camera which retains a single colour and the rest turns B&W.

Taken from a hotel room around 06:00 in the morning. I think it's OK. :)

Something I always wanted to try out but couldn't get it right for some reason. Toni Toni Chopper from One Piece in focus, rest of the crew at the back, out-of-focus.

Taken out of boredom.

And another B&W shot.

As you've noticed, most of them are in B&W and for some reason, I like the way the camera takes picture still in Black & White. Especially the partial colour feature.

Oh and the camera itself.

Yup, I got the silver one with both the 16mm and 18-55mm lens. :D

PG RX-78-2 Gundam 30th Anniversary EX Finish - Right Arm Unit #02

Right, finally an update!!!

I was seriously bored and since I don't really browse Facebook anymore, there was really nothing to do so I dusted off the the big PG box and started doing some work on it.

Well, this Right Arm Unit was actually done a long time ago... probably a few days after I've finished the Head Unit back in August last year. So here it is.

Oh and since I'm now on FiOS, there's no point in me re-sizing the image size. :)

This is the shoulder piece unassembled.

The upper-arm part, again unassembled.

Partly assembled, with the lower part to be put together.

Here's the whole thing put together sans the outer armour. I did paint some parts with silver and gold for no particular reasons really. Sure took a lot of time but I really liked how it turned out.

And here's the hand. I really like how each fingers are each separated pieces. I have to say that the hand/s on the PG Red Frame was/were rubbish and well... every time I change the position of the fingers, they just fall off.

Oh, and I also painted the fingers gold and silver. :)

And here's the fully assembled Right Arm Unit. Since the outer armours are coated, you just can't avoid taking off some of the coating when snipping the parts off the frames.

The base colour of the frame is white(I guess) so I had to somewhat match the coated colour but unfortunately I only have silver as you can see on the pics.

I've already finished the Left Arm Unit today so I'll probably post tomorrow or something.

Oh and I used my Xperia Arc to take these pictures. I now have a proper camera since December. It's the Sony NEX-5n!!! "It's awesome" is all I can say. :)
Will probably put some random test pictures I've taken using the camera someday.

That's all for now.

Motorbike Repairs *UPDATE*

So I brought my motorbike to my dealer's workshop yesterday, no news on it yet though. Hopefully I wont have to pay more than £150 for the repairs otherwise I would have to cancel my PS VITA pre-order. :)

Currently, the weather in London seems to be getting warmer again so I'm really looking forward to having my motorbike fixed.

Update 14:25:
Just rang them today and it seems that the part that needs to be replaced is on backorder unfortunately so that means I would have to commute for the time being.

Well, I got a weekly Bus pass until this coming Sunday so I should be fine... for now. :)

Saturday, 11 February 2012


Well... I just had a very minor accident early this morning.

One TFL bus near Kensin Rise around 7:40 in the morning forced me to move/swerve further to the left and before I realised that there were frozen ice, it was already too late.

The worst part, the bus driver did jack shit to help and just drove away like nothing happened.

Anyways, my only injuries are a few scratches on my right knee and a little bit broken middle finger on my right hand. My motorbike didn't suffer that much damage either from what I could tell, probably thanks to the slippery road. Read brake lever is bent which is easily fixed, right mirror was bent upwards slightly which is easily fixed as well and the handlebar is bent as well.... so I guess it's nothing too serious as I managed rode away with those conditions.

It's "The-End-Of-The-World" Year

My first post in 2012!!

Still no updates on gunplas unfortunately.
Only here to say that I've stopped using Facebook for now. I want to know just how much I'll miss it.

So far, so good.

Somehow, I realised that my life revolves around Facebook and not the other way around. One of the top reason I stopped. Every time I wake up, the first website I open is Facebook.

The first 2 days were quite hard now that I don't really have a page in Facebook to open. :)
As I said, it's getting better.

That's it for now. Will probably update this more now than Facebook. :)
