Last

Well, it's the last day of the year 2010...
And it's the first time I'm spending New Year far away from my family and my home.
...Sounds a bit depressing, huh?

How does she fair being alone during festive season?

平成22年12月8日水曜日

Time

Haha, me and my weird titles again.
I think it's been a while since I wrote anything in my blog right?
And the answer would be the same as always- busy with college uni.
I forgot that I'm already in uni now.

So what has she been doing since the last post?

平成22年11月21日日曜日

Of Peroxidase and Lactate Dehydrogenase

Oh boy, am I in deep trouble.
... Sort of.
Don't run away at the title of the post cause if you do, then what the hell am I going to do?

Does she not make sense? Follow the link to find out what she's actually talking about

Anticipation

I just noticed that I didn't post anything since Halloween.
Hehe... I've just been busy, that's all.


Wondering what's she's been up to? No? Then you might be at the wrong site.

平成22年10月30日土曜日

All Hallow's Eve

Welcome to my little sanctuary!
*gives a spooky laugh*
Meh, what the hell am I trying to do?

What is she up to on the supposedly most spooky day on earth?

平成22年10月8日金曜日

Stay

Here I am again for another week's scribble about life in the UK.
I noticed that there are a few of my secondary school seniors around in the UK, like Germaine who is in Warwick, Amelia who is in Oxford and Spencer who is in Bristol.
And I think Spencer was standing in front of me when we boarded the plane for Dubai in KLIA.

And what does that have to do with today's post title?

平成22年10月3日日曜日

Reminescence

Well I've been in the UK for almost two weeks, and I'm entering my third week in a wholly foreign country.
How have I been?
Hmm... I've been better but I am surviving.

Define the phrase 'better but surviving'

平成22年9月25日土曜日

A Whole New Life?

Well, it's been almost a week now.
And the temperatures are dropping as the days go by.

Guess how cold it was today.

平成22年9月19日日曜日

UK

Yup, I'm already here.
And there were a few hiccups prior to me getting here but that's not the point of today's post.

Lookie here, she's saying hello from UK!

平成22年9月15日水曜日

Drawing Near

Oh yes, the week is finally here.
And I'm absolutely, positively sure that a whole lot of people are happy to be finally rid of me.

Who? Why would you want to know?

平成22年9月3日金曜日

Simmer

Well, I got my visa.
Yup, all that worrying and the bad dream I had was the omen for another thing.
To say the least, rejection of visa was not something I should have worried about.

Is she about to flame?

平成22年8月28日土曜日

Heat Wave

It's so hot these days.
I think I can even fry an egg on a piece of rock lying outside.
Usually, I'm not one to complain about the weather being hot but the temperature these days are ridiculous.
I can only wonder how those living in the desert can cope with the heat.

She feels like a turkey baking in the oven.

平成22年8月21日土曜日

My Own Room?

Ok, I just received the accommodation contract yesterday.
And I think I'm staying rather far from my friends... Go figure.
Oh well, at least this will give me an opportunity to 'expand my social circle', not that I like or want to.

She's just saying that but she's actually happy to finally have her own room.

平成22年8月18日水曜日

Failing Words

I handed in my documents for visa applications yesterday.
It was also a coincidence that Fui Yin and Erin were there.
The deposit for the flight tickets has already been paid; full payment made only when visa has already been approved of.
And there's also a change in the date of departure; I'm leaving on the 17th of September instead of the 18th.
So that means I have a day less than expected.

So what does words have to do with visas?

平成22年8月16日月曜日

Limits

There's a limit to everything, right?
Like a limit to how many times you can actually eat,
The number of times you can listen to a song before getting bored of it,
The number of eye-rolls you can do in a day,
The times you can smack / facepalm yourself before you can't stand the pain anymore...

What's the point this time?

平成22年8月8日日曜日

Out of The Bag

I guess the cat is out of the bag, having Allen tag me in a comment concerning visas.
Yup, winternite is officially leaving the coop.

So where is she flying off to?

平成22年8月2日月曜日

The Wait

Oh yes, my wait has paid off.
I finally have a PSP in my possession!
Unfortunately, I hardly have it in my hands for the past 24 hours.

There's no end to the wait, is there?

Game Review: Machinarium

I found this game a while ago and found it interesting.
So this is my thoughts on this little-known but promising game designing company, Amanita Design and their brainchild, Machinarium.

Machinarium, a little warrior with a big heart

平成22年7月24日土曜日

Magic Hands

I think it was a name of a clown, or was it a mime... I don't remember.
*sigh*
I don't even remember what I was planning to write about...

If you have me as a friend in Facebook, I made a really childish rant in my status.
Well, it is the truth.
I did wait for six years to get the electric keyboard, and I'm still waiting for the cellphone and PSP that I was promised around six months ago.
Everyone in my family has a new phone, excluding me.
And I have all the rights to say that I've never EVER gotten a new phone, neither in the sense of model nor ownership.
Patience is a virtue this girl has hands down.

平成22年7月21日水曜日

Dropping Jaws

The PC section of my gaming list is almost done...
And I'm starting to hate the fact that my PS2 is useless to the point that I don't want to fix it.

I hate my brother because he didn't ask for the better one when he had the chance.
And, I shall always remember to never buy any electrical appliance that has been remade into a slim version.
Slim will always mean fast overheating and perhaps lower processing speed.
You don't need to be a console engineer to know that.

She's thinking of ways to get the older, bulkier and better version of the console

平成22年7月13日火曜日

Flabbergasted

I could hardly believe it when my cellphone rang while I was busy replying a PM.
I wondered if there was anything wrong, since the voice on the other end was a familiar one.
My heart started to beat faster to transport adrenaline throughout my system, even when I had no need for it.
Too bad we can't control the hormones that are programmed to released in our bodies.

So what is she going on about now?

平成22年7月9日金曜日

News

Finally, the Avril that I've thought lost to the evil known as mainstream.
Actually, I didn't really realize that she was the one singing the first time around, even when I am supposed to be really good with recognizing voices.
Hey, how did you think I learn to play the piano without a teacher?

Confused again? She gets that way sometimes...

平成22年7月5日月曜日

Eat This

Hmm, I guess I was wrong.
Looks like I've got to work a little harder... At playing more games.

Looks like you're confused? Click here to let her set things straight

平成22年6月27日日曜日

Issh

Yeah, it's pretty frustrating when you have a nagging voice inside your head.
That's what I'm having in mine.
What is it about?
Maybe she has become insane?! (Hint: It has something to do with アニバースリの国のアリス; so read on if you're interested to know what.)

Game Review: 誰にでも裏があるTrue or Lie~

I know, it's been a long time since my last review.
Yeah, I know. I still owe some people the route spoilers for the 不思議の国のアリス series.
Those, are still in progress while I have some of the other game routes already starting to rot in my hard drive.
There's just so many things happening in my life right now (especially getting ready for college in fall) that I've put aside gaming for a while now.

As for this game, it's been a while since I've played it.
Heck, I've even uninstalled it out of my hard drive just to get back some space for new games I'm getting.
The routes are almost done (I'm just about 6 route/ 4 characters from completing it).
I can't say that I enjoyed it very much though...

Why?
You'll just have to read through the review to find out, ne?
Is it really a good idea to have your sister as a teacher in your school?

平成22年6月20日日曜日

Busy Bee

I just realized that I've not posted anything since my birthday, which was around two and a half weeks ago.
Hmm, yeah... I grew a year older and I ain't happy about it.
She's mulling at the corner because she's getting older.

平成22年5月15日土曜日

Redundant?

It's rather redundant to have additional cables added to the national net system and yet still have us suffer slow speeds.
I have no idea what's happening though, but I'm rather upset that it's so slow.
I can't even get a decent upload speed when I'm uploading my scripts!
It so ruins my mood...

I can hardly say that it's been a good day, but I'm glad that I have my stories to cheer me up.
じゃね!

平成22年5月7日金曜日

Dealing

I'm feeling rather upset.
Why?
It's not really important.

I have a rather odd way to deal with being upset; I clean.
Like she said in her introduction, she's an oddball.

平成22年5月6日木曜日

Difference

This is a point of life in which I never want to look back, ever.
I'm just waiting for reality to crash onto my dreams.
Truly, I AM that pessimistic and have EXTREMELY LOW self-confidence.

Anyways, I'm done with my finals and have all the time in the world to enjoy the things that I have resisted for the past few months, which is to play games, read manga and a whole lot of backed-up side projects.

She's trying to make the world a crazier place

May

Oh no!
It's May!
A day that I dread is coming close, and there's nothing I can do to stop it.

Talk about a tough start for a month.
She's about to go nuts!

Game Review: Clover no Kuni no Alice

As I've mentioned in my updating post, I'll be doing another review.
But first, let me inform you guys here that

THERE IS NO ENGLISH VERSION OF ANY OF THE 乙女 GAMES THAT ARE MENTIONED HERE!!!

THERE IS ALSO NO ENGLISH PATCH FOR THEM EITHER!
Yes, I know many have come here in search of a language patch and I'm sorry to tell you that it simply does not exist!
I highly doubt that it'll be translated to English either.
So if you want to play the game, try learning Japanese before you start or you can always head over to my spoiler section.

Edit: My mistake; there is AGTH but that's just having the program run it through the online translators and displaying them. Unless you're not a grammar Nazi or that you don't mind being fumbled by what it displays, I suggest that you don't use it.

As mentioned in my title, I'll be doing the sequel to ハートの国のアリス of the 不思議の国のアリス series, クローバーの国のアリス.

Click here to return to Wonderland

Eh-

Yo.
I know, I know.
My finals are tomorrow...and I'm going to do one of my long pending game reviews!
See how badly I procrastinate?
No worries, it's Morale Studies tomorrow.

First thing's first, I've done some changes in my blog or should I say, blogs.
I've done some tweaking and tinkering during my breaks of crashing 3 months worth of info into my brain and the changes are somewhat close to being completed.

So, this is what I've done:
I've created two separate blogs for my reviews.
The first one would be about all-ages 乙女ガーム while the second one would be about 18禁.
Within these two blogs are also guides and walkthroughs to help those who are struggling with getting to the good end.
The strategies and walkthroughs posted are 100% accurate because I try them out before I post them.
And if you don't want to play the games but still want to know what goes on and how it ends, there's the spoilers.
I'll post up the spoilers along with the CGs.

Be warned, don't expect any CG with 18禁 cause that's just plain wrong (to me, that is).

Yes, I do play R-rated games.
And having to study Biology as a subject has taken away the taboo when it comes to 18禁.
And no, I actually don't get turned on at all.
In fact, my stomach tends to squirm and it's rather painful, and it has nothing to do with acid reflux.

Since I'm still a beginner in Japanese language, my interpretations would be somewhat inaccurate.
I tend to sway towards Kanji and dread it when the dialog is filled with hiragana and katakana.
It's not so bad now, since I've picked up both forms but there would still be some misinterpretations.
So if you notice any mistakes, please inform me to set the story and me straight.

Oh, did I mention that the ONLY way to see the posts about the games is through my game list?
Yeah, I'm evil. *evil grin*

The reviews, spoilers and walkthroughs would be featured at my main blog, which is this one.
Just follow the jump link and it'll take you to where you want to go!

I guess that's it for my updates.

平成22年4月22日木曜日

Bone To Pick

Well, it seems that finals tend to get me really edgy; not even 黒崎君 or 和樹会長、宮地君、錫也君 can calm the storm that I feel inside.
Even Matt is clueless to how to deal with me; his hugs and cuddles would usually quell and soothe the rages that I sometimes have.

Under Fire

Yeah, I'm feeling the heat, both literally and metaphorically speaking.
My finals are next week and I can't believe that my brain fails to register the panic and stress that I'm supposed to have.
Does that mean that I've lost it?

Since I'm on organic chem, might as well add something I read in the newspaper today.
See how badly she procrastinates

平成22年4月6日火曜日

Whadda-what?

Oh my GAWD!
It's already April! A few more weeks till my finals...
*realizes the degree of crap that she's landed herself in*
No doubt, I've been eating, sleeping and crapping with organic chem in my head.
I even try to imagine the structural formula of the hydrocarbons that I read off the cleanser and toner that I use.
Yes, winternite has gone insane.

See how did studying drive her nuts.

In The Dark

Today is an important day.
It's such an important day that I try squeezing an hour in my tight schedule to blog about it.
Why? I'm sure you've been watching the TV or listening to the radio, else have you been living in total seclusion and cut off from civilization?
Today is when Earth Hour will take place.

Wait, Earth Hour is today?

平成22年3月12日金曜日

Freaking Out

I'm not exactly freaking out though; I don't have the time to.
Yeah, I know that I've not been really actively blogging recently; I blame my studies for it.

You could practically see from my to-do list that I have added a whole lot to do and have almost virtually done none.
Well, I've finished the Physics part of my attempt to recover my lost files when I lost my pendrive. I just have to work on the Chem and Math part right now.
Read on to see how college life isn't as fun as depicted on TV

Don't Kill Me, Yet

...Most probably because I'm half dead by my own already.
Sorry, no CG this update.
My reason, (excuses to your ears)
- Overload of work since I'm resiting some of my subjects. Ask my friends, I've practically moved into the campus library and have not joined them for lunch in a long while.
Don't worry, I do eat.

- Hardly even touched the guide to using Suzie and CG ripping. Hence, I still have no idea how the hell it works.

Game Review: Heart no Kuni no Alice

Now, the moment you've all been waiting for (or I've been waiting for)...
My first ever game review!

Yeah, yeah; I'm not famous enough or qualified to give game reviews, but I'll do it anyways.

*sticks out tongue like a little kid*

I'll be doing this now and then when I come along with a game that I have.
I can foresee that most of it would probably be Japanese visual novels, but there might be occasional XBox 360 games popping up or even PSP, that is if I get the console.

The game that I would be reviewing today would be Heart no Kuni no Alice (no, duh).

And to make things clear from here on out, I will not be explaining about the game plots, strategy or even the endings in any of my future reviews.
My reviews would be entirely on my thoughts on the game plot, graphics, gameplay and soundtracks.
I will, however, make posts about the routes of the game that I've played; but that depends entirely on whether I liked it or not. (For those who wants CGs and spoilers, this is what you should wait for.)
I don't plan to waste my time on things that I don't like.

Now, onwards with the review!

平成22年1月29日金曜日

Coming After

Yeah, yeah. I know I should be burned at the stake for breaking my promise.
I was busy on Sunday, as a matter of fact.

Again, I was called (more like forced) to be the communication medium (a fancy term for translator) between my dad and his cousin in China.
I'd like to point out that I'm not the only one who knows Chinese in the family.

There's a surprise inside...

平成22年1月23日土曜日

Troublesome

本当わすみません!

I know,  I promised to start writing about the routes and the CGs of this week, but I didn't.
Please don't come at me with torchlights and pitchforks...
I'll compensate in a post that I will do tomorrow, since I have to go out for dinner now and will probably return quite late.

I was preoccupied the whole afternoon with finding a way to customize my page jump links.
In other words, I was trying to make it a manipulatable widget instead of a template, stamping the ever so boring 'Take a step inside...' in each and every one of my post.

Want to know what I have found?

平成22年1月16日土曜日

Wh-wh-WHAT?

Like I wrote yesterday, I'm currently into クロバの国のアリス~Wonderful Wonder World~.
I finished ハートの国のアリス, its prequel, around two weeks after I got it.
The only thing left now to complete is the dance A ending for most of the characters.
Pretty fast, considering that there are nine character routes to take, which has a whole lot of CG to collect and it cost me around... uh...two-fifty to get it.
For those in the know,  both are bloody 乙女ガーム series developed by QuinRose and is already in manga form.
Thank goodness that it the operating platform is PC and my laptop actually has the specs to store and run it.
I'm just not happy with the price, but it's a known fact that the Japanese deal by the thousands and has exceptionally high cost of living.
And for those who don't, they just see the title as an alien language and go "WTH is that?"

Ah, piqued your curiosity, huh? Saunter on inside then

平成22年1月15日金曜日

Redecorating

Well, it's been a week since I started my third and final semester.
Yeah, I'll be starting my degree courses after this, if and only if I can get it.
Sounds bleak, huh?
I've already sensed and prepared for a major disappointment so that's that.
Hey, I have REAAAAAAALY low self-confidence so don't go reassuring me with comforting words.
I will neither believer it nor let any slight hope rise.

Anyways, my mom's been nagging at me to tidy up my room.
After they shifted my electric keyboard downstairs, I have...

I'm Listening

Sound, oh glorious sound.
I find no greater joy than to listen, and read.
Come to think of it, most of the activities that I love doing are very singular, other than gaming of course.

I have been pondering about this question Sappy asked when we met at MPH.
She finds it odd that no one in my family enjoys reading other than me and wonders where I've picked it up.
She isn't the first to ask though, and I didn't really know how to answer either.
I simply don't know.

Anyways, I'm not writing about books and reading.
Sound is the belle of the ball this time, voices to be more specific.

New Year, New Beginnings?

Well, it's 2010 now.
The new year started with a scream, literally.
I'll take it as an omen and say that it won't be any better than last year.
So, I'm anticipating even more disappointments, arguments, debacles, unhappiness and tension.
...
Hey, don't flame me for not being happy about a new year.
I'm a pessimist; I live to see the negative side of things.
I started out as a spunky (I can't seem to imagine myself being spunky) and perky girl but life has sorta molded and beaten me down to a cynical and pessimistic wallflower.

Now, I'm to hide myself so that the pervy knight doesn't find me and the possessive and jealous mafia boss of a husband of mine doesn't either one of us.
*snaps her fingers and disappears*
