not as great as the POP, but still HOT!
hoping the pre-order will out soon!

No. 2: Shi brothers, from manga chapter 25.

Merlion in Fairy Tail

i think i was abit shocked when i saw it.

but check this out!!

fairy tail 31-01

fairy tail 31-02

our very own Singapore Merlion is in Fairy Tail!!

how weird is that?!!

the other weird thing, it is being flanked in the middle of the Raijin and Fuujin. it's as if the animators can't find anything else to put as statues in an onsen spa resort.

that, or there's some conspiracy theory to promote Singapore with our weirdest mascot.

Strong World DVD release

the Strong World DVD has been set for release on 23/07/2010.

sources from Kaizoku Fansubs gave this french link. plus, it has also been listed on the One Piece Wiki page.

so i'm guessing more or less 100% confirmed.


now the only thing left is to find which of the online japanese stores are selling the DVD.

*goes snooping*

after reading through the article again with my less-than-desired japanese skills, i found (plus confirmation from ah gu) that the DVD that is going to be released is in fact NOT the Strong World movie, but instead Episode 0 + the TV specials that aired last November (Ep 426-429) about Little East Blue.


i'm crushed.

goes to show you can't really trust everything you read unless you've double or triple-checked your sources.


i'm depressed now.


update 27/05/2010,

confirmed + reliable sources says that the real movie DVD will be out in late August.

there is still hope yet!

Hetalia World Series Ep 08

Episode 08: Observation Journal

haven't had such a good episode for a while. other things that happened include,
1) Rome and Germania
2) Spain and chibi-Romano

poor Spain-chan is being dominated by chibi-Romano instead of the other way round. i'm sure he wished he had Chibitalia instead.

chole and batura

been having Indian food craving since last Sunday after eating the nice mutton biryani at Marine Square.

so besides eating Indian twice this week, my favorite Indian stall at the Fusionopolis foodcourt had a new lunch dish.

chole and batura
it's called chole and batura.

believe me when i say it tastes as good as it looks.

nevermind that it's deep-fried flour that probably gains you more calories than you can lose.

oh so sinful, but oh so nice.
