For Reins: http://yurita.oops.jp/index.html (one of my favorite and most hated ~ don't quiz me on this ~ Hellsing circles has turned out an ES21 gallery for your FAV character).
Click on the man to get to a gallery for him. She just started so it's just one or two pics but this woman is good.
I'm extremely fustrated ... both by the lack of support from the base and from the floodgating attitude of the above.
No, I'm not talking about the devil not abetting me and GOD finding out I'm really an evil kid.
*shrugs* In the words of EK, and you've got to be Chinese to appreciate this, it's a ku (3) xiao (4) you see on my face these days.
Note: We are smoking too much together, way too muchoes. But it was fun meeting Boey, he and EK are so hilarious together, for people who hardly know each other, they sure insult each other like old pals ... miss my insane "senior".
+ Tuesday +
Got free food during lunch today *beams* ... for a kid that doesn't look like I'm starving, I'm constantly being fed by family, friends and even restuarants I go to, you know the "here's this is on the house" *grins*
To self: Some people are bastards, honey coated but bastards none the less.
+ Sunday +
I'm very very very tired ... there's sooooooo much to do and my sensei announces today that there is a Jap test next week. I suspected as much and I even got the chapter that will be tested correct ... except I didn't anticipate she'll be testing us on not one but two chapters.
SIGH ... Am very no make that supremely worried about Jap trip at end of year ... Em, I'm sincerely freaked out that work may prevent me from flying ... hopefully the book is a good enuff guide for you tho'. I really want to go but *looks at files and cries*
Oh well, work must at all cost come first but I do hope like crazy, it's the Christmas week afterall and tis the season to be cheery and cheery would thus be if at comiket?
+ Monday +
I don't know if you're reading this since you've gone off your blog and are only LJ-ing for the moment but if you do decide to rip his throat out, let me know first. I would like his car.
To Ototo, ehh, it is up my alley but not up my timetable. Maybe I should get abovenamed to come to my workplace and rip some throats out. I feel very very "used" and some revenge would be good now.
Happy birthday in advance Ange ... you got my email on Japan?
PS: Am tired but Japanese trip itinerary is almost done. Managed to shave 15,000 yen off per person for the Hakone tour by DIY-ing afterall. It's hilarious. Hopefully I can do Japan for S$2,500 or less (not including shopping and splurging, the tickets and accomodations 2 of which have free breakfast and one has a free dinner adds up to about S$1,800) - not too bad considering it's 12 days and 5 cities / towns right? All I need now is to finalise the wet weather plans and the earthquake manual.
+ Saturday +
Ange, Em and SF - read comments to post below
Em, I left my phone at home but I picked up your Zero sum. Pass you books with DJ? Hopefully Tour Japan is set! Wish me luck about leave - Monday and Tuesday are crucial. Had a longer post just now but for some reason I hit cancel by mistake. With my little finger injured (nail ripped off), I'm not going to retype ^___^
Bought lots of books at Kino. Alex, I picked up a loki character guide book for you ... is that OK?
Watched "When Brendan met Trudy (Ireland)" and "Tanguy (Fr)" last week ... damn good movies altho I preferred the former for its more quirky attitude. Gasp, the Irish are funnier than the French!
Also got two new coats/shirt dresses at Tailors, wheeee!!!
+ Tuesday +
Finally home, waiting for what I call hair to dry before sleeping and flipping thru my Hellsing DJ "Young King Hours" which is a parody of YKO (the maid issue in particular). I always thought Benjiro's YKH was a good parody but it hit me how good it was today ^__^ the woman's brilliant I tell you.
Went to watch Bank Ban with Sooks this evening before getting back to work. The Hungarian opera was alright but not fantastic. The thing that irritated us the most was how pathetic the story was. Imagine this, tyrant queen aids evil brother in raping hero's wife. Hero was actually in palace but kept out of sight due to respect to the king and queen, he was not supposed to be back by their orders but he came back coz someone sent for him ... hero kills queen in self-defence then tells king "I'm sorry but guess what my wife was driven mad by yours and your brother in law and killed herself and my only child by mistake so I'm sorry I killed your evil bastard wife".
I would have razed the palace if I were Bank Ban. Sheesh. I'm glad I'm not born in olden times. I would have rebelled like mad.
Extremely addicted to expresso shots - what's new except I've eaten nothing today except for those 4 shots. I hope I don't get gastric later today ... muchoes to do - cannot fall sick but at least now I know why my fingers felt a bit quesy today.
Em ... I don't get your message but it's probably coz it's this time of the night. As you might have guessed by now, I left my phone at home :p
Colleagues came back from trip to Korea. Not too happy ... something about Korean behavior pissing them off. To be fair, we Singaporeans are hardly an easy bunch to get along with but what was interesting was a comment that the Japs were more polite. Hmm, I don't know. I'm not trying to make a sweeping statement here but the Japs I know are either extremely nice and helpful or so xenophobic it's bizzare. Can you imagine this seller saying she won't accept yen from abroad so I've got to get someone to send the $ to her in Japan from Japan? Gosh, do they drag you aside at kindergarden and teach you anyone not from your island is some evil freak from hell or what? But then some of them are so sweet ... my pimp is a loveable one for one. She just got me bullet train timetable links ^__^ (the english site for JR West is down for some reason so I wrote to her asking for help).
Got a little pissed off today at work with colleague but it was my fault too. In rather pensive and tired mood already and had to restrain self from killing rude little french girl on hellsing forum. I have never seen a more rude post altho it could be her grasp of the English language.
I dunno. While I do not appreciate the wishiwashiness of Asian mentality and refusal to call a spade a spade at times thus leading to misunderstanding, European and American forthrightness can lead to a different sort of misunderstanding - you're not sure if they're just rude or aggressively anti-you. I don't believe disagreement should be avoided and in fact I advocate it, but regardless of anything, it should still be put across in a polite manner and not through unprovoked inappropriate language and insensitivity as to other people's feelings. She thought I was an American and said the rudest things possible. Now I have taken a reflection on my earlier stand and I must admit I am now more critical about Blair and Bush's way of doing things but she was so rude that if I was less busy I would have reported her to Admin. Ah well ... maybe some US patriot at the forum will get her ~__~;;
Gotta sleep ... more affidavits tomorrow. I love affidavits I hate affidavits. I hate working late I hate it when I've nothing to do. Maybe Keel's is correct. Maybe I'm a poser (which we defined after heated argument to mean in Keel's context - a person who is more in love with the idea of doing something that the actual doing of that something). I dunno tho. I enjoy being contrary but it doesn't mean I don't enjoy my life and what I do even tho' I sometimes do somethings just to be contrary.
I've really gotta log off. Goodnight or good morning, or whatever pleases you.
+ Sunday +
Everytime I plan for a tour, I feel like I'm plotting an invasion of the relevant country.
I really need to work *kicks self*
PS: Maybe I do have a hidden world dictator streak *puts maps, bus and train timetables,
Nah, I've just inherited mummy's knack for battle planning.
Reins, your Saiyuki Reload will be late. Oniichan is hunting them down for you as they are outta stock.
Sensei helped me proof read letter to dj circles today ~__~;; wah lau, I don't believe I made the mistake she spotted and it's confirmed - babelfish goes wonky even on the English to Japanese translation *the J to E is quite bad*
And the little guy in class said hi to me today. I think it's the first time he spoke to me *lol* ... no technically it's the second - last week I noticed during class that he was studying his history textbook under the desk so I asked him after class if he was having an exam. His first response was to look around to make sure I was talking to him and thereafter mumbled a yah to which I wished him good luck.
Maybe it'll be quite fun to strike up more conversations altho on the first day of class I did entertain thoughts of strangling him.
~ And that would be Bel's voice in the background reminding me how I scare kids :P
+ Saturday +
Talk about mad, strange and bad.
Have had strange inspirations of late ... one that led to a tiramisu and a glass of port at the Fullerton in the middle of the night last night and one that had me ordering all the timsum available on the menu for lunch. My mum and aunt were quite pleased with lunch and strangely the bill for such an extravagant feast at this quaint little Viet restuarant (5 minutes walk from the office) was low. It was less than $60. Me thinks this is cool.
Back to work ... la la lah lah ...
+ Friday +
Metamia and Em will find this funny.
I've been trying to work (really work, you know the job I have that pays for my manga and trips to strange lands) and source for tickets my Japan tour scheduled for the end of this year. Between speaking to Japanese people who are a little weird and between speaking to those who are extremely helpful, I've been able to work out my schedule and if God be willing, I should have all my bookings settled soon.
But in the words of Britney Spears "Oops I did it again".
In the course of trying to book my trips to Hakone, I ran into a snag, the website stated terms and conditions that were confusing and in any case incorrect on either of the 2 possible interpretations of the said terms.
Normal people would just clarify what the terms mean and just go away right? Well, I had to rewrite the affected clauses of their terms and conditions for them ~__~;;
So bite me ...
+ Thursday +
+ Sunday +
Will be almost uncontactable next week. Need to work really hard ya (stop laughing Emie) ... Alex, got one Manga you wanted and will be sending it to you with some other stuff. Reins, will be sending off your books on Monday along with the prices for the books and shipping. Let me know when you get the parcel.
Okay guys, wish me luck surviving this week.
Had lunch with Oniichan and Ad today after Jap class (funny, my sensei was quite keen to know if I had a bad week *evil grin*) and one good fag in a long while. Am haunting the Bishan CC now. Nice meeting Ad again and nicer finding out he loves Hellsing too *joy*. Sorry for troubling you Serene and thanks for the help.
PS: Nii ototo-chan, this is hilarious. Poor Snape-poo (click on the link Reins) - see ya on Friday - got some Hellsing DJ to fob onto ya ^___^ (haven't called the potential landlords yet coz dad washed my jeans without emptying the pockets thus erradicating my credit card and the numbers but since we're moving out only end of the year, it's just as well). If possible, can you come to Shenton earlier so we can bother the travel agency together?
+ Saturday +
Pupil san, our favorite Integra blog seems to be back ...
Going to die ... *blah* Will scrample home soon and hopefully wake up not too late to dig myself out of this mess I've gotten myself into >_<;;
+ Friday +
Does this make me James or Black? Gasp!!!
Go here for breakfast. You won't regret it.
+ Thursday +
I like this site's games (stolen off Ange's blog)
PS: Reins you should try "milk the cow"
+ Wednesday +
Lost a few auctions, not bothered which is weird because I used to care more. Caring less about a lot of things these days.
Need a new focus in life. Need an ankle guard too - ouch, and it's confirmed - I've got fatter UGH!!!
+ Knights of the Round +
I want a Clow shaped chocolate!
So obsessed with Clow Read
PS: And there are others
Clow is my obsession.

Thanks to Val for help with the pop up menu code. And yes, eternal blood pack offerings to Reins for designing this layout. For the avoidance of doubt, don't swipe the image since Reins scanned it from her manga.
Bravenet makes great counters
+ Hellsing Doujinshi +
Ahem, let me announce this especially for all you people who come to this blog looking for HELLSING DOUJINSHI, yes Hellsing doujinshi seekers ... If anyone wishes to buy Hellsing doujinshi from Japan, please drop me an email with the circle's name and URL. If the DJ is from the circles I know, I should be able to get the books subject to availability - note sometimes circles don't put up the sold out notice until it's too late so don't blame me.
Once I've contacted the circle to make enquiries on the book, THOU SHALL NOT cancel on me or lose the deposit and face boycott for the rest of your miserable little Hellsing addicted days. Interested people can drop a line to email@example.com. Subject title should be – Interest in Hellsing DJ. In this regard, note I only work if paid, i.e. you have to pay a deposit of US$10 once I place the order with the circle. Payment of remaining sums due must be made before I send you the book (if you fail to pay up the remaining and outstanding monies within 1 week after notification of the monies you owe me, I will forfeit your deposit and the book is still mine). On the other hand, if there is remaining monies, rest assured I will refund the remainder in cash with the book.
Charges will be for buying the doujinshi (including the costs I expend in changing my local money to yen and sending payment to Japan), postage of doujinshi from Japan to Singapore and from Singapore to wherever you are (this depends on the weight of the doujinshi yah), US$2 for commissioning costs for me (it’s peanuts for the fact I need to write to them and exert my sad corpse down to the post office yah yah ... friends may be exempted so try impressing me). In this regard, risk of loss lies on purchaser and I will not be responsible if the doujinshi gets confiscated by your customs or sinks to the bottom of the great ocean during delivery. Certain doujinshi will cost you US$10+ more because those circles don't deliver out of Japan even for one as pesky as me and thus that is the commission and postage charges I have to pay someone in Japan to handle the delivery for me. Considering how much one pays on ebay, this is usually a better deal most of the time - unless the DJ is dirt cheap yah.
The thingee is simple no? You write to me and I'll tell you what to do ... although I reserve the right to say no to your request for purchase if the doujinshi offends me yah. I will consider other genre if asked but no promises coz Hellsing Jap circles to date are usually the most friendly to non Japs or at least to me ... this means I can't help you if you want doujinshi from a Hellsing circle or other circle which has and/or is the type which ignores orders from non-Japanese people ...
PS: And yes in case you're wondering, I'm responsible for the sudden popping up of no selling to overseas notices on most Hellsing DJ sites :P
