Day 12: Manga Day

I woke from an urgent call from Miguel. The dvd wasn’t playing properly. Miguel had spent the last 12 hours and getting no sleep (props to him, he had to work in several hours as well), and to have the dvd not playing properly was quite devastating. Before we could solve the problem over Skype, I had to go to lunch, my cousins had returned.

After lunch having lunch with my cousin’s at my Grandma’s house, my cousins were sent to my house to be entertained. They were picky with the movies and ended up showing them Princess Mononoke.

Shortly after, I rushed to Miguel’s house, then to hand in our project. We had to put it on a usb. The problem was, was that they wouldn’t accept our usb. I had to call a representative of the group, which turned out to be my friends Peter’s mom. Knowing earlier would have saved us a lot of trouble. When I returned I watched Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind and the remaining bits of Princess Mononoke with them.

In between I went with my friend Chester to look at models and computer parts for upcoming projects.

The evening consisted of me eating dinner with my cousin’s at a tennis club’s restaurant and reading some manga.

Sorry for the inconsistencies today in quality, really busy :S

Double Digit Days: Day 10

I’ve finally reached the double-digit mark of continuous blogging! Hopefully I will be able to blog more and with more quality in the future!

Today I went to swimming class, but this time my brother came along. He’s in the class after mine, but my mother had it arranged so we could be in the same class. It makes that much more bearable (still don’t understand him though).

After having lunch, I ran into a small problem. A game was on sale on the American Steam (which is unavailable here) and I was trying to trade for it online. After half an hour of desperate forum posting and chat spamming, I failed. Damn you region locking!

I’m of to teach little kids dance and sing (ill try to take videos and pictures) and film with Miguel. Update you guys soon! – William

End of day 8 (八)

I’m writing this on my netbook, on the verge of falling asleep. I must make it a habit of blogging earlier were I am in a better state. Nonetheless, here it is. Better late then never.

After playing Killing Floor with Pancake boobs, I went off to Taipa to film with Miguel today. We had tons of fun today, getting a lot of scenes filmed. Our day was full of mishaps, which I named the Troubles of an amateur film crew. Wanting to film a scene of me getting of the bus, Miguel positioned himself to get a clear shot of me getting off from within the bus. However due to miscommunication, i failed to move at all and we both rushed to get off at our stop. Next we needed to plan how to get scenes of a bustling community. We settled on a nearby park were we spent the next hour walking next to old people, me pretending to feed Karp and me getting stares for holding an orange (integral to our project). Afterwards we used a nearby building to simulate me going home. First the scene with me going in. Miguel got in the lift first, and I was to press open as it was about to close. Suffice to say, I failed again, and Miguel ended up going up 5 floors. We encountered a similar problem when we needed a scene of me getting out of the elevator. The lift got called down twice which caused me to desperately try to punch the closet floors button and walk the stairs to get back to him.

We also had a scene on the roof where I took lots of photos and videos. There was too many to sort through so I shall post them tomorrow (please don’t be mad :3). We then had a dinner at a nice dinner known as “Brick’s Burger”. I will also include the image of my meal later.

I’m really tired now, and my eyes are shrinking from the strain. (anymore and they will disappear). I’m of to read awhile, then sleep.

P.s  As I’m writing this the steam summer sale has just started. Go quick and get some great games to pass the summer!

Good Morning, Afternoon and Evening!

Thanks for reading!
