Sweetening up my day!

Hi! I wanted to share a recent purchase from Blippo. A while ago they were holding a summer sale and I got some Japanese candies :9 (I started this post so long ago orz)

Blippo offers free shipping, and for an extra $2 you’ll get tracking info which I find great! Sadly my local mail service took a long time to deliver the box, so after a month of being in the country they finally delivered it 😥

Let’s begin!

These were my best purchase òuó, as you can see, there is an illustration of a bird holding the candies and whistling. You can blow trough the candy and make a whistling noise! ;w; best candy I’ve had in many years xDD I had lots of fun bugging my dog and my sisters with them xD the downside is that they are very similar to Smarties, both in taste and in consistency, and although I do like Smarties, this means they can break easily if you are not careful ;-;

Pokemon Sun and Moon

We got this lovely new video revealing the starters, the legendaries and a bit of gameplay of the new Pokemon games.

I honestly thought that I wasn’t gonna be that excited for this gen… boy I was wrong.

It’s been 15 years since I started this trip along with Pokemon Yellow and my Game Boy Color (which was also Pokemon themed) not really knowing what I was doing 😂 , I honestly think one of the reasons I started to like english and was willing to improve on it was that my first game (and all my Pkmn games for that matter) were in english, I needed to know it well to be able to play them. I remember being stuck on Pkmn Yellow because I couldn’t deliver Oak’s parcel… simply because I didn’t know what a “parcel” was 😅 poor younger me. Also, I could never get a Pikachu with surf </3

So thanks aunt, for giving me a christmas gift so many years ago and turning me into a Pokemon trainer,  it’s been a long ride but I’m happy to be able to keep playing and keep enjoying these games 😍

PS: I am a fire starter girl ❤ (except for Tepig, I still don’t like him :P)

CREATIVE BLOGGER AWARD / Versatile Blogger Award

Super-mega-late post, for over a week I was super busy and after that my brain just turned into mush, I had to take a break from everything ;O;

I just spent the last few days (besides working less) reading manga, catching up with some anime series, and playing games :D. Btw at the beginning of February I won two games! Family Fishing from Chic-Pixel‘s giveaway and Shou’s route from Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons, that’s a lot of luck considering I never win anything xD I also got Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, I am a complete newbie at Fire Emblem games and jrpgs in general, but it has been really fun (I feel like I’m training pokemons when someone from my party levels up :_D). This week I’ll write a bit about my new experience with Fire Emblem and a bit about Serendipity of Aons, Shou wouldn’t have been my first choice, but I actually found his route quite sweet.

I’m also gonna try to catch up with all the blog posts I missed these days >A> (I’ve been skimming through my feed and there are a lot of posts!)

Now onto the awards, I got two awards by the lovelies PokeNinja and Crimson, thanks a lot! Sorry for being so late D;

MORE RANDOM FACTS
(Thinking about so many facts is hard! I’m going to try to keep this one otaku related)

  1. One of my favourite mangas of all time is Yotsuba&! Reading it always makes me smile ❤
  2. I have two Yotsuba figures (one plastic model and one revoltech), and six Danbos (revoltech, danbo mini, mini plastic model, 3 nyanboards), oh! I also have a little Danbo as a phone charm! because yes, I love them :_D
  3. This anime season I’m trying to keep up with 4 ongoing series… which doesn’t sound like a lot, but I pretty much watched one anime per-year until last year. By the end of 2015 I had watched 7 animes (I was pretty surprised). Since I was busy, I got behind on some series, and getting away from spoilers has been awful… *sobs* I love twitter, but I wanna kill so many people for giving me peeks of the chapters I haven’t seen yet D;
  4. I got into anime/manga when I was 16, and the fist manga I read properly, was Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles. I reaaaaaally like it, and it will always be special ;w;  I’m finally buying the Kodansha Omnibus version of TRC, but I still haven’t re-read it, I’d like to have the whole series first and prepare myself mentally before that (so much angst ;A;).
  5. I have also been using the alias Nozomi since I was 16 😀
  6. I got into BL in 2014, after I accidentally downloaded a manga thinking it was shojo xDD after that, I got curious, and now… well I’m just another fujoshi :_D
  7. I name my things… as in… my cellphone is called Kuro (this was before Haikyuu), my laptop is named Haru, etc etc (Not all of them have Japanese names, for example, my camera is called Pixel xD)

 

I hope that was interesting 😀 I’ll go read blogs now >w>
