Day 35: Short and Sweet

The day started with Joel calling me. He was going to try to get Close Quarters.. again. He came up to my house with Zherlain, and after a quick shower and a trip to a pc mall we owned Close Quarters, the dlc focused on infantry combat

We didn’t get to play it just yet though. Zherlain had a dinner date with Martharoot at six. She had 3 hours to kill and we ended up going to my house to watch a movie. We settled on American Pie Reunion. I personally had not watched the earlier American pie’s so there wasn’t much nostalgia for me. It was a good movie, nothing stood out besides really except that it had actually nudity in some scenes and how much of an asshole Fiddler is.

After that, everybody went home. I spent the evening trying out close quarters with Joel and playing League of legends with him and my brother. However in doing so, I completely forgot to write the blog (sorry) thus why this blog is late and there is two today.

Day 16: Movie Marathon

***My internet crashed yestarday, and I was unable to write about the rest of day 15 at night. Not much happened, I just gamed for the rest of the afternoon.***

Today I’m going out to watch the Amazing Spiderman and the Dark Knight Rises! That will take up the majority of the day, but its the first time im going out in awhile. I also got an areana shooter called Nexuiz today. It doesn’t count as me purchasing the game, because my mother loaded my steam account with money (its kinda like itunes), so my streak of not buying games is not interupted.

Update you guys later 🙂

Day 15, Sleepy Beginnings

Today, my mom was merciful enough to let my brother and I skip swimming. Thank you!

I don’t have many plans today, but I do have some objectives I want to accomplish. Yestarday I broke my chain (again) for reading, and I have to start again. Having finished Dawn of War, i’m going to read a book called Book Thief.

I’m also going to get my first debit card! I’ll finally have a bank account all for myself.

My last objective is to get a stamp for myself that says Completed. I’m going to stamp it next to the name of a game I completed on my notebook (where i list my games). Hopefully this will help me keep better track, and make more progress in my games.

Rest of day 14

The rest of my day was spent at home accomplishing many things which are too numerous to write in detail. I am currently under the influence of a splitting headache, due to a beer.

  • Posted more on the blog (photos) and tried to get more accustomed with the interface.
  • Played Limbo, League of Legends and Killing Floor
  • Watched Fringe
  • Played with Source Filmmaker
  • Submitted an idea for a champion in League of Legends
  • Organized my internet favorites

Day 14: The 2 Week Mark

Last night, I stayed up till four in the morning finishing my first novel of the summer. The name of the book was called “Dawn of War Blood Ravens: The Dawn of War Omnibus” which is based on a game, which in turn is based on a tabletop game known as Warhammer 40K. It was quite a good book, heavily tied in with the story line of the Dawn of War Franchise and I enjoyed it a lot due to my fascination with the 40K universe. Quite coincidental that I found this link that you might enjoy, showing off the miniatures that inspired the series: http://kotaku.com/5926915/warhammer-miniatures-come-to-life-in-these-amazing-photos

After sleeping for a mere four hours, my mom awoke me to have breakfast with my cousins. I had gotten leg cramps before reaching there, and was irritable for the entire ordeal. Afterwards they came to my house, were I promptly napped before taking them to the ferry station.

Day 13: The day of slight rest

Today was the day my good friend left for the Phillipines for three weeks. Until Joel gets back, I don’t have many people to hang with. He will be missed.

Today was a slow and uneventful day. In the afternoon I:

  • Went swimming which was exhausting. Our coach is really starting to push us.
  • At lunch with my cousins again, getting stuffed in the process as it fell to me to clear the remaining dishes again
  • Helped Chester Plan his pc some more, writing down viable builds. We visited model stores and the computer mall. He’s going to compare prices in Hong Kong. Can’t decide between AMD and Intel.

Then in the evening:

  • Had dinner with my cousins. Stuffed myself silly again, and didn’t stop eating the entire evening (even as i write this)
  • Finally reached level 30 in League of Legends. My plan was for the final match before reaching level 30 would be a Victory. We unded up surrendering :(. First ranked match was a lose, but we suprisngly won the second.

I should really start writing this earlier again, and in mini segments. I promise I’ll blog more tommorow!

Thanks for reading!

Lazy Sunday – Family Day (11)

Morning Pop art

This morning, after church my cousins and I went to have lunch. Nothing really special, but they had some nice pop art.

Home theatre renovation

After lunch we went to an electronics centre to pick up a Blu-ray player and some fans for the house. The Blu-ray player is part of our project to renovate our home theatre system. It’s made by Pioneer.

The new fans just make life more bearable here (30° centigrade), and are so effective we don’t even need to use the air conditioner!

Finally got my dad’s old watch fixed and got house keys! So there’s that.

My dad and I also spent some of the afternoon getting rid of some stuff in the living room. Including our old DVD player, a red ring of death Xbox and miles of wires.

Our Video Project

Today is the last day before we must hand in our video project. To our horror, we discovered that some serious competition had entered the competition. Lets hope our wits get us through.

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

I also managed to finish a manga series called “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.” It’s about how humanity’s greed destroys the world as they tamper with life. A poisonous forest known as the “Sea of Corruption”, home to giant insects, dominants the remaining land. Great themes, characters, setting, really fleshed out world, and pretty action packed. One of Hayao Miyazaki’s masterpieces.

Final Thoughts

The rest of the evening was dinner, walking at a reservoir and playing Tribes Ascend and League of Legends.

Do you guys like the new text formatting I used in the previous post and this one? I would also like to know if you would like updates throughout the day, or a summary like this.

Good Morning, Afternoon or Evening to you all.

Thanks for reading!

Day 10: Grinding to a close

Volunteer Work

The kid class was largly uneventful. I came in earlier then the woman that asked for my help. We were suppose to teach them a dance, but only three arrived, so instead we did a project were the kids built a castle.

Video Project

Today was the last day of filming and I was grateful because the orange we were using to fil was starting to rot, and i was wearing the exact same clothes for four days straight and I was starting to smell, despite the abnormal amount of deodarant i was using on it. We finished by filming Miguel turning back into a human (he was the orange) at school. To do so, we needed a scene of the orange falling. After a few failed catches, we discovered something. The orange was a GRAPEFRUIT. Guess we don’t know our fruits. Hopefully we can win those Ipads, but even if we didn’t I had a good time filming.

Socializing with the community

On the way home, something very interesting happened. Two tourists asked me for directions. Normally this isn’t too special, but read on. They were trying to get to a restruant named “Fernando’s” but were on the completly on the wrong island. Instead of just telling them they were in the wrong place, I offered to take them to a restruant by my house (which I really felt good about later on). On the way there I learnt more about them. Denese was a Canadian from St.Something island and lived in Hk and traveled thw world. Milean was a Fillipino staying with her family. Then in the lift I had a discussion with a lady about her dog species, which she said was very clean and well behaved. I felt so sociable all of a sudden :P!

Team Fortress 2 Match 

Later that evening I had a team fortress 2 match with my brother’s clan. (On a side note, my brother has been recieving gifts prior to his birthday. He got 50 dollars on steam and in-game points in League of legends. Lucky). We lost pretty badly as always, but it was good fun.

Plans for tommorow

Going to church, and then a day out with family.

Good Morning, Afternoon and Evening to you all!

Thanks for reading!

Almost to double digits! Day 9!

Its raining. For the first time in days. Whether or not it will prevent us from filming is hard to say. But, I refuse to be unproductive, so here is the first blog post of the day!

The steam summer sale is really something. There are 9 daily deals, and several flash deals that last less time, and a community sale where the users of steam vote on the next deal.There’s also tons of summer achievements that could have prizes! It’s going to be a hectic 10 days for me :3.

If I don’t go out today my objectives are pretty game related. Play dota 2, killing floor and league of legends, with friends if possible. I’m also going to see if I can sort through and upload some photos and videos. I’m off to eat lunch, bye bye!

Day 2: The first Friday of summer

Hello everybody :)! I’m writing this first thing in the morning.

My plans today are to get a haircut with my uncle and to discuss a summer project with him.

I’ve had long hair for almost 2 months now and have been constantly asked by relatives and friends to get a haircut.

Just for the record this is my moms my own decision. Last day with long hair that I can fling around :S. On a side note my uncle is balding and I told him to conserve his hair. He doesn’t really listen.

The summer project he had in mind was for me to make a website for him. It requires java (which I have no idea how to use) and is a site which he is going to use to study human nature (buying and selling). Today he is going to show me how its supposed to look like.

That’s all for now. Update what I’m up to later 🙂
