Have a Happy New Year Everyone!

Hmm..this was originally going to be a "snap of the day" post but since it's the last day of this year, I'll make the post title a little more festive? Hahaha...I dunno what I'm saying ><"

Anyways....yesterday me and San went shopping after like forever because school's been keeping both of us really busy so that we haven't seen each other for like almost two months (I believe?); therefore, yesterday we finally met up and we went to shop at Promenade! And surprisingly we both bought stuff and our purchases weren't small least mine wasn't LOL xD. However, I'll let San post about what we bought because I didn't take any pictures of them but she did. Instead, I'll post up a recent photo of the two of us because we haven't taken one in a long time -__-"

Well, that's about all I have to say for now have a Happy New Year everyone and may all your wishes come true next year if they haven't already this year (...and hopefully I'll post more next year! :P)

No. 1 Obsession.

You'd think a girl's number one obsession would be shoes. Or even bags, clothes, etc. Or if you're a nerdy one, it would be manga, video games, figurines, blah blah. But mine is pretty strange. POUCHES. And I know, some of you are like, "uhhh, I use lots of pouches too...for bags that don't have enough compartments right?" Err, not quite. Let me break it down for you:

Here is my school bag. I chose this as an example because it's one of the few that fit everything but doesn't kill my shoulder. Look, it's smiling at you!

So....what have I been up to recently?

As the title of this post suggests, this entry will be a rather random entry about a bunch of things that I'm pretty excited about recently and especially since my holiday started which was just four days ago, but it will be ending soon T-T..

First of all, I have more to post about my favourite people, guess who? LOL.....TVXQ (Yunho and Changmin) will be releasing a new Korean album as stated in my previous post and their album cover was revealed in the last couple of days:

Their new album is titled "Keep Your Head Down". :D (Picture Credit: SM Entertainment)

A heart for you.

I don't know where Pearlie disappeared to =(. SHE HASN'T POSTED AT ALL! Tsk tsk. She did help me with the "read more" thing on blogger, so I can't complain too much XD. Let's hope she'll post SOMETHING soon....before our holiday is over. And let's hope her post will be super duper long to make up for her lack of posts lol. I keep forgetting to post this, but I bought a winter coat! It's nothing special...other than the fact that it's a men's coat =D I decided I needed something warm, but minus the girly styles like the short puffy coats or the long TNA coats that accentuate the waist. I know they're warm, but I just hate how all women's coats are either one of those two styles...and obviously anything else isn't warm enough for super cold days. SOOOO I got a men's parka =) It's a bit big, but it still fits my body structure relatively well. The puffiness of it just adds to the 'rugged guy' look that I was going for. Who doesn't want to look intimidating in the winter?

Okay clearly there's nothing intimidating about this picture. But there it is!
Hurraaaay for men's coats =)! And hurry again that I fit them lol.

Here is the story of how I ended up with 5 random headbands.

After finishing my last exam (which I studied for in a day), I rushed to catch a bus to meet Mister D. I fixed my face to hide my exhaustion from studying all week, but I did not have a chance to fix my hair. It looked like crap. Ew. So, I decided to grab a bunch of headbands at the mall to cover it up. Here are some of them.

USAMIMI HEADBAND! It's really long, so the ears part is very exaggerated. Err, don't know when I'll wear this yet

December 24, 2010

Birthday Presents!

I started writing another post, but I decided this one needs to go up's loooooooooooooooong overdue. Here are all the gifts I got for my birthday, minus money/gift cards:

Let's start off with what my girlfriends got me =)
Konad French Nail kit! Stamps for your nails <3 I haven't tried it out properly yet, only on a few fingers for fun. My nails keep breaking when I try to do it seriously. UGHHH.

December 23, 2010

A much needed break!

...not a break from, but a break from school! Nice to know I can rest now. I finished my last exam yesterday morning, but last night I was still dreaming about stuff I've been studying over the past two weeks...LOL. Well, I've been taking quite a few pictures of some interesting things (to me at least), so I'll definitely be posting up stuff in the next two weeks...ARGH I DON'T WANT SCHOOL TO START SO EARLY....EFFFFFFFF WHYYYYYYY T-T

*Ahem* anyway. My brain is still so much in school mode that I felt the need to write a point form list of what type of posts I will be writing during the holidays...gawd, I feel like such a loser:
  • I've FINALLY taken pictures of my birthday gifts ( was 2 months ago XD) and I don't plan on posting pictures from my birthday get together with my girlfriends anymore...I'm too lazy to go gather pictures from facebook ><. 
  • Anddd, I went shopping after my exam yesterday for headbands! I bought was on sale so might as well XD one of them was an usamimi headband (bunny headband) which I've wanted for soooo long! Definitely posting pictures of my secret santa won't buy me duplicates =P. 
  • Ummmmm, I also have an idea for an "extreme obsession" post, so hopefully that'll be a fun read for you guys. 
  • Oh yes, and there'll be another hair dye post XD. But not something to review about because I'm just dying my hair black to fit the season (my hair feels so summery right now, kinda weird o.O). 
  • Depending on what I get for Christmas, I might write something on that....or at least one on the food I'll be cooking (with my brother!) for the 25th. Not that I can't do it myself....because I toooootally planned/prepared the Thanksgiving dinner on my own XD NOT BRAGGING OR ANYTHING....JUST SAYING....XDDDDD. 
 Hopefully something interesting happens besides what I have planned so far (which is next to nothing) so I have more to blog about. Hahaha. And one LAAAAST thing...Pearlie's last exam is TOMORROW! Wish her luck! And pray that she won't die from the stress! Because if she dies, then I'll need to find another date for Monday. Lol, just kidding Pearlie <3

Took a selca for the first time on my cellphone today. It's nothing special (and quite ugly IMO lol) but I felt like sharing it because it reminds me of a vampire. My phone camera drained my blood. LOL
Okay time to hunt for some fresh blood. Ciao~

Spider-Man Comiquette

Hello, it's San ^^

Wow, I just finished my first exam today. Yes, first. Everyone else is out celebrating and enjoying themselves while I wait for my next exam T_T. Suckssssss. Anyway, I'll keep this short...Spider-Man is here! Preview of the comiquette is on aDDiction already, but I'll put the picture here anyway:

He looks SO GOOD. More pictures will be up shortly on the other site. And now that he's here...look forward to seeing pictures of Spider-Man, Carnage and Venom comiquettes together!

Okay, back to studying~

TVXQ (Yunho & Changmin) are coming back sooooon! fangirl mode in action again?!?! xD

The remaining two members of TVXQ: Yunho & Changmin (this description sounds depressing, but since the other three members left for "now" so that's how I shall describe these two T-T) are having a come back real sooooon. According to SM Entertainment, their new album will contain a variety of genres allowing fans to see how much these two members have matured vocally. And for the past few days they've been teasing fans with concept photos like these:

Christmas is coming~

Hurray it's almost Christmas! It's funny how excited I sound right now, because I usually don't care much for it. LOL XD. I don't care about the gifts, the food, and I hate the weather. I don't go to parties and the tree is a pain to put up...NO ONE HELPS ME T-T. But I think I'm all giddy right now because I've finally switched carriers and I don't have to freak out about the phone bill anymore~

I must say, this new carrier is pretty close to awesome. I didn't get the phone I was originally gonna get (if you must know, it was the LG dlite aka LG Lollipop (first one). It's cute and all but when I read that I can only store up to 2 phone numbers per contact I knew I couldn't live with that. I got so used to my organized contact list with 3-5 numbers per person, their email addresses, and I even make notes about each person to remind me of when they're reachable or whatever. That would be all gone x____x. So I picked another phone. At first I was a bit guilty because I picked one that was one of the more expensive ones out of the list of phones they offered....but then when I went into the store the guy said "heeeeey I'll put you on the tab...stay with us longer and your phone gets cheaper over time." AWESOMES. I paid $150 less for the phone, and I just need to stay with them for TEN MONTHS...$25 a month too! I get unlimited calling/texting btw. Wooooo. Anyhoo, I won't reveal what phone I have here, it's nothing to brag about (seriously, it's not lol). And did I mention they are letting me use 3G without having to pay data fees? I couldn't sleep last night because I saw 3G on the top, and I thought, SHIT they are charging me for data aren't they....omgomgomg. I went on live chat help at 8am this morning and they told me I'm not. LOL. At my old carrier, they charge you for the 3G data usage. ALL THE TIME. I had to enable the "use 2G networks only" option and switch to 3G only when I need to go on the internet. Geeeeez.

Oooookay I've wasted enough space...but I swear that marks the end of my cell phone miseries/stories/rants whateverelseyouwanancallit.
Now, on to my Christmas post!!!

December 8, 2010

Time to get SERIOUS!

Oh wow, I have been so blind. If you bothered to read our "About Us" page, you'll notice that one of the things I said about myself is that I LOVE to keep up with new cell phones. OH GAWD THE CONSEQUENCES ARE KILLING ME NOW. Well, it's just that I didn't notice it until now. I saw an ad for a cheap phone with a cheap phone plan recently and it got me thinking. So I sat down and did some calculations...

Here's what I'm currently using/paying for:
-a smart phone at "some cell phone carrier" that happens to be one of the more well known ones.
-------approx. $70 per month for data plan + add ons (caller ID, etc)

If I "downgrade":
-a crappy phone at a newer and "lesser" phone carrier.
-------phone = $140, plan = $25 per month

LET'S one year, I spend about $950 (HOLY that's almost a thousand bucks....AHHHH) at this "well known carrier" and this is minus the price of my phone, which I don't even want to mention o___o. If I bought the crappier phone AND used their plan for a year I save a crap load, and I can talk and text LIKE A MAD WOMAN. And never overuse anything. JEEEEZ that is so awesomezzzzz.zzz.z.

What the efff, I feel sorry for this guy. (Taken from

Snap of the Day #15

Hmm...I have a crappy lab exam tomorrow for my animal physiology course so I should really be studying right now, but there's this one picture that I really want to show San (since I haven't seen her in like forever T-T). And after some thought, I decided that posting it here would be the best place to put it as it relates to the stuff she likes and have also previously made blog posts about...hahaha xD

So this picture is a snapshot of this toy I saw the other day when I was at Walmart (LOL!)...and once I saw it, it made me think of San and her interest for this character in the movie :)

Haha..this version of Iron Man looks cute and I prefer this compared to how it originally looks LOL (but I'm pretty sure San would disagree with me on this :P)
Btw, this picture is badly taken once again because I took it in a hurry since I don't want to look like a weird person taking a photo of a toy IN the store -__-"...anyways that's it for now, back to studying for me T-T.

Hurray For CRAAAAAZY Hair!

How do you guys feel about big, poofy hair? I'm asking because when I saw this picture, it got me thinking...

Dara is pretty, but that is some crazy hair XD. Taken from
...that's SORT OF what my hair looks like 1) when it was really really long 2) right after blow drying.

Here's the messiest of messy hair pictures I could find that's recent.
Eeeek! Is that ME?!?! lol
Is this look BECOMING?! I certainly hope so. I won't have to tame my wild hair anymore and call it "stylish." LOL...

Fujifilm Instax Mini 50s "Cheki" Piano Black - Somewhat of a Review.

Hello again. Where is everyone, busy studying? =( Well anyway, I'm here to introduce you to my most recent toy, something I got as an early Christmas present...
Ta da!
 For those of you who don't know, this is the "new" instant camera. Remember Polaroids? Well Fujifilm took that concept and made newer versions, including Instax 210 (takes wide polaroids), Instax Mini 7s and Instax Mini 50s (takes mini polaroids). This one I got, is (or should be) the newest release. I believe it came out in early September this year.

What's so special about it?

Well, it's black. LOL. The older ones were usually white or silver with some other colour combinations, so this was different. Also, this one has a timer, allowing you to take decent group photos. Another nice feature is the shutter speed, which adjusts according to the lighting. In other words, it can now compensate for low lighting so your shots don't look weird (err, I'm summarizing the Fujifilm site description here LOL. I only had this thing for a day, I don't know everything yet...DON'T JUDGE ME -_-).

So here's what came with it...
Camera, batteries, a "close up" lens.
I haven't tried the close up lens yet. In fact, I only took one picture so far LOL. I didn't want to waste film on pictures of my cat, so I'm sort of waiting for a get together with friends to try it out with them.

What the camera looks like with the lens on. And a picture of Mikayla with her mommy and uncle!
Obviously this thing is smaller than the 7s cameras. But there is a drawback to it (to me at least). Instead of using 4 AA batteries like the 7s, this uses 2 CR2 batteries. Yes it's smaller, which means lighter weight, but I already have a stack of double and triple A batteries that are I need new ones x_x. Time to hunt down sales for batteries

One pack of film. Costs about a dollar per polaroid lol.
In terms of film, they have quite a large selection now. There are the classic ones like what I have above, and TONS of Disney ones! There're all kinds of pretty designs like Winnie-the-Pooh, Mickey Mouse, and also Sanrio ones like Hello Kitty :)

Of course, a downside to the patterned ones is that you can't write on it...
I prefer the classic ones, feel more like polaroids =). The Pooh one was taken with my friend's camera.
Some people wonder why they sell these things when you can just print any picture of your choice from your digital camera, or even just buy a portable photo printer if you crave that "instant" feeling. It's cheaper!

Well, it's really not the same. These fujifilm cameras feel more nostalgic. It's so retro =D. Taking out your portable printer doesn't have the same effect, trust me.

By the way, I bought my camera from Pacific Mall, BlueWave (I think that's the name). You can also find it on eBay or here.

Let's hope Pearlie will post something soon =)

The Secret of Nail Polish.

Hey everyone, our cute and bubbly friend Alex is now blogging <3 She's so adorable, I guarantee you'll fall in love with her instantly. But don't fall too deeply in love with her or someone will beat the crap out of you =D (nono, it's not me this time haha). Visit her here!
Okay here's what I really wanted to talk about today. I was incredibly bored the other day (bored from doing so many ass-ignments) so I did this crazy thing:
Wow, it actually looks HALF decent here. Sweet!
Loving this "freakishly long and demented fingers" look.
Polka dot nails! And on one hand only, because I was too sleepy to do the other. Here's the interesting thing. I went and showered/washed my hair with this on. Keep in mind that it was fully dry by the time I got in the shower...

This is how it looked after.
WHOAAAAAAAAAAA. Yeah clearly I scratch my head pretty hard when washing my hair lol.
Clearly, the black polish stayed mainly intact. After I took this picture, I literally removed the entire pink and white nail polish from my finger in one piece! And the black wouldn't even budge! (Okay, I forcibly scratched off a bit of the corners but that's about it). I was SO shocked by this. You know why?

The white was Sally Hansen. The Pink was L'Oreal Paris. The black? FREAKIN' WET 'N' WILD! That makes absolutely no sense! I was going to throw out that old bottle because I thought Wet 'n' Wild (like Bonne Bell) sucks! Who still uses this line of polish?! Holy...

I'm gonna need some time to get over this.

That is all.

My Kagrra, story.

This is quite a depressing post. I recently found out my favourite Jrock band is disbanding (they like to call it their "demise" instead of disbanding, which is weird lol) so  I decided to dedicate this post to them.

Just a bit of background info on them based on my memory. Not going into too much detail, you can just google them for more info... (all Kanji characters copied from various jrock forums lol)

Kagrra, pronounced 'kagura' 神樂 is a neo-japanesque rock band that mixes traditional Japanese lyrics and music with rock into their songs. They started out around 2001 (prior to this, they were known as CROW) as an indies rock band. They were classified as 'Visual Kei' in their early days, but later shifted away from that. Even though they toned down on their appearance, they still maintained a hint of traditional Japanese style throughout their career.

Early days of Kagrra, (Taken from

Kagrra, today as of their latest single Shiroi Uso (Taken from
The band consists of five members. Isshi (一志) the lead vocalist, Akiya (楓弥) the guitarist, Shin (真) the second guitarist (also plays the koto), Nao (女雅) the bassist and Izumi (白水) the drummer.

My Kagrra, story...
It started in 2005, late October/early November. My brother went on a trip overseas so I had his computer all to myself, which meant faster downloads! Woohoo!
At the time, I was really into mp3 rotation sites. They were sites where people post around 5 random songs per week for download. On one particular site, all the songs that week were Jrock/Krock which I NEVER listen to. But, I was curious (and there was nothing interesting to download that week) so I gave it a try. Kagrra,'s Satsuki (their newest song at that time) was among them.

My mp3 player back then was suuuper old. It was this USB stick thing that only had a wheel at the top to change tracks/volume and a light that was green when on, and red when battery was low. Lol it was so ugly...XD
Anyway, I was in bed listening to this thing. When suddenly Satsuki started playing. My first reaction was.....
"WTH? This is SO WEIRD....what IS that? A guy singing? A manly girl? Whaaaaaaaaat, I'm confused..."
Yep. I really didn't like it at first. It was so strange. Probably because I was expecting it to be very Jrock, which it wasn't. But it definitely wasn't Jpop either. It was such a bizarre style. I definitely wasn't used to it.

So I just took it off my mp3 player and ignored it for a couple days. Among the songs I downloaded was also The Trax, which is a Krock group (at that time anyway). They definitely had that 'heavy' sound to them. The song 'Paradox' was pretty...crazy. I didn't like it either -_-"

But one night, while I was lying on my brother's bed waiting for shows to download, I started listening to Paradox again. I become so engrossed by it. I wasn't really trying to make sense of the song I usually do...I was just listening to the music. The vocals, the guitar, the drum and bass. And I somehow enjoyed it. I don't know how or why...but it grew on me. At this point, I was still ignoring the Kagrra, song that I downloaded. I was somewhat into The Trax now though XD.

I started searching online for various songs that were similar in style. I don't know how this happened, but I stumbled upon the PSCompany site for Kagrra,! The name didn't ring a bell at first. I just saw how pretty their homepage was so I navigated through it. They had the promotional layout for the San album at the time...(Friends, do you recognize that SYMBOL ON THE GIRL'S ARM??)

San 1st press limited edition album cover. (Taken from
It wasn't until the Satsuki chorus began playing in the background when I realized who it was. The forgotten song in my mp3 stash! Let me tell you, it sounded like a completely different song this time. It was an upbeat song that was incredibly soothing at the same time. Everytime I listen to it, it feels like I'm in some far away place surrounded by beautiful green grass and a gorgeous view of the mountains. I was so in love with the song after hearing 30 seconds of it on the site. And so, my love for Kagrra, grew.

Did I mention the artwork for their albums/concert DVDs/etc. were always BEAUTIFUL?!

I went and dug up every single song by Kagrra, soon after. There were A LOT. And let me tell you, I listened and loved every single one of them. I always picture each song telling a different story (which I will not tell you because some are pretty embarrassing lol).

Some of my all time favourites, if you'd like to know what they sound like...
(for those from, you can preview/listen to it rather than download)
Arishihi no bishou
Nanagatsu Nanoka
Ouka Ranman
Sarasouju no Komoriuta
Uzu (Shin plays koto!)
Tsuki ni Murakumo Hana ni Ame (skip to 2:51 for song the song)
Utakata (Shin plays koto favourite of favourites)

Anyway, I listened to their songs and never once saw their music videos until...I found a site that had their first music video (for Kotodama) available for download. I was soooooooooo curious...
It was quite an experience. I fell asleep and woke up at 2am to watch it. I always found Kotodama to be one of their scarier songs...and the video was pretty creepy (partially because I was alone in a dark room and everyone else was asleep already). They were still very Visual Kei back then, so their make up was nuts. The video was very dark...almost felt like a Japanese horror movie. But the traditional ones with demons and all that. It gave me nightmares...hahahaha.

My stash...?
...consists of one DVD with a poster. Lol
The (back of) t-shirt I got as part of their international fan group. I couldn't do anything as a fan outside of Japan, so I got this to make myself feel better XD
I picked Akiya! (This was at the bottom corner on the front)
Akiya or "autumn" in different languages (this was on the right breast of the front side)
They were never a band that I loved because "they're soooo cute and hawwwt" or whatever. This band really opened up the Jrock genre to me (i.e. Alice Nine and The GazettE) and I think their music really changed me. In a way, my encounter with Kagrra,'s music is what made me into the me today, so it's definitely sad knowing that they won't be around much longer...
Kagrra, Sacra photobook. From my old computer.
Anyway that concludes my Kagrra, story. Their last album will be released in January 2010 and their last tour will end in March. The saddest part is that I won't be able to see them perform as a group. Now, watching all their old videos and listening to their music makes me tear up. I'm going to miss them so much...

To those of you out there who love a group/band/singer A LOT...go see them while you can. You never know what'll happen =(

---San (nahhh, this is my real name...I didn't take it from their album lol)

Kao Liese hair dye in Chestnut Brown - Review.

First off, I have no pictures (aside from ones of the box). I bought the dye, did the dying, but not on me XD. So, I had no permission to take pictures of the before and after comparison...but I still felt the need to review Liese. You'll find out why in a sec.

So I mentioned before that Liese is the same as Prettia. They share the same company, same selection of colours, same price. Only difference is that Liese has instructions in English and Chinese, while Prettia is Japanese only.

I bought this hair dye at Pacific Mall with a 10% off discount. In fact, all the stores there had Liese on sale...only Liese. Which was weird, because I swear it was the same as Prettia. Since price was an issue for this person, I bought Liese for her.

Her hair prior to using Liese dye?
It was a deep red. Not as red as mine was before but more like a deep plum red. Something like this...
Taken from
Her hair after Liese dye...
In my opinion (and hers), it sucked. SO BAD. It looked almost black! It was weird, because I left it on for an hour. She had thin short hair so we piled on more than enough of the dye on. So I REALLY can't figure out why in the world it turned out so incredibly dark. It looked about 2 shades darker than the top swatch on the box in the second picture above. Sort of like this.
Taken from
I know it says chestnut brown, but it really looked more like a dark chocolate brown. When it's under the light too. Indoors, it looked completely black o.O. Okay it didn't look dyed black (like SUPER BLACK) but it certainly looked like "natural Asian hair" black. Wth??

My verdict?
I honestly don't know. It certainly covered the previous dye job pretty well, but the fact that the colour result was much darker than expected was so disappointing. I can't say Prettia is better than Liese because both boxes of Prettia that I tried were light colours while this one is dark. All I can say is, if you want some colour to show, go one shade lighter in their colour selections, just in case. You can always leave the dye on for a shorter period of time. Hope this helps =)

Just made an alternate URL because the stupid blogger one is so long XD it's
Nothing changed (the blogger URL still works), it's just something that's easier to remember since some friends are too lazy to bookmark it and keep forgetting what it is -_-"

Snap of the Day #14

Tired. Really confused about my assignment @_@. Hungry for green peas. LOL. Anyway, on with the snap of the day...

What a boring Halloween it was...STUDYING FOR PSYCHOLOGY AND LAW! =(
Ew I sound so boring now...all I talk about is school T_T Ugh. I'll come up with something to blog about when this assignment is done. Hopefully. -_-" Pearlie and I need to stop using snap of the day as an excuse to be lazy and make short posts lol.

Carnage and Psylocke comiquette

They are here! More pictures on the aDDiction blog. Give us claps there if you like them!

That's all.

Preview to..."I FINALLY got my JYJ Limited Edition Album!"

I was originally going to make this short post into a "snap of the day" entry, but I figured that it might sound more interesting this way....sooooo I decided to say its a "preview" instead HAHAHA xD. Well back on topic....I finally received my limited edition copy of JYJ's album titled The Beginning and it's so pretty like packaging wise and of course the eye-candy photos of the three members inside...LOL!

A badly taken photo of me and the HUGE box for the album, but you should get the idea that I'm smiling like this xD (though I look like a zombie T-T).
So, I'll be making a longer post about this album later because I really don't have much free time at all right now (and until after exams I believe ><"), which is why this is only a "preview" hehehee...


November 13, 2010

New hair again?

Ahh, I hate studying. Especially when it's for History of Psychology...AHHHHH. Too many names to remember...T_T. Anyway, I wasn't going to make a post until after I'm done my test and assignment but that would mean no posts from me until Nov.21st hahaha. Soo, I'll try my best to slip in some simple posts here and there.

So on Thursday night, I was drying my hair and I realized how gross it looked. I REALLY couldn't take it anymore -_-" I needed a change...any change. And so, I grabbed a pair of scissors (that weren't even hair cutting scissors, because it was too late at night to sneak into parents' bathroom...) and chopped off my bangs. Yep, here it is.

Half my nose is gone! Lol. I toned down my hair colour in the picture, the lighting in the hall made it SUUUPER red -_-"
Okay that's all. XD Please bear with us as we try to survive through the final weeks of this school term plus exams =( I finish off this post with something completely unrelated to hair...

She highlighted all the key points for me. Only study partner I'll ever need =)

Alien or Predator?

Dear reader. This post is not for those who can't take somewhat scary and possibly nightmarish images of alien creatures. Consider yourself warned!

So last Friday I watched Aliens. The day before that, I saw Predator (instead of doing my readings, heehee). Today I felt like writing a post on both of these nasty yet cool looking...things. So enjoy =D

Honestly, last week was the FIRST time I watched both movies from beginning to end. The first time I saw these two creatures (and learned about them) was through the first AVP (Alien vs. Predator) movie. Yeah okay I see you rolling your eyes saying what a sucky movie it was. I DON'T was cool to watch aliens fighting each other. And it was especially satisfying to see humans feel completely insignificant in comparison =D. That's probably why I really liked both the original films even more...both sort of started out with people underestimating their opponents...and then they end up running away screaming for their lives while they get killed off one by one. In the craziest ways possible. WEEE~

Don't misunderstand. I do not like scary horror films where people die. In fact, I got scared watching that crappy teen horror movie with Paris Hilton in it. OMG how embarrassing to admit that to you all T_T. But it's's veeery easy to scare me. Yet, I find myself drawn to sci-fi horror movies...especially when a super-powerful-scary alien is involved. Maybe because I know it's less likely for one of those things to be hiding under my bed rather than a serial killer who loves making wax figures. Oops, getting off topic here...

I like this pictuuuure. Taken from
Anyway. Let's move on and talk about the Predators first. I sort of favour them over Aliens because they're more technologically advanced, and have a super cool mask. But I never really liked how Predators looked under the mask...

Don't know how accurate this is, but it seems pretty close? Taken from (forum)
Predator's face reminds me so much of those damn annoying head crabs from Half Life. Yeah I know...the Alien facehugger is more related to the head crabs from HL, but I still think the Predator's mouth (when open) looks like a head crab lunging at your face. And another thing...even though the invisible armour is really cool and I love the claw-like weapon, the self destruct bomb felt really cheap to me. Just like how I hate self-destruct moves in Pokemon. It feels so, "I DON'T LOSE. IF I DO, YOU WON'T WIN EITHER." I guess some people consider that smart, but mehh. I don't really like it >___>

Okay let's stop talking about Predator for a while. What about the Alien? I kinda like that "little head inside the head" thing. It's SO ugly...but it's also unexpected, so it works with the whole scary alien idea. ^_^ Even though they don't have all that fancy technology like the Predators do, the acid saliva/blood stuff sort of like the Predator's self destruct bomb...even if the Alien loses a fight, they still kill/injure their opponent. At close range at least. Like when those guys tried to blow off the Alien's head in the movie, the acid got on them and they were meeeeelting.That's sooo cheating (but still cool to watch) XD!! And I dunno....the shape of the Alien looks like a gigantic bug. T_T. Creepy.
I think this is the Hot Toys figure. Taken from

Alien queen, according to the site. Taken from

From what I've said about them up to this point, it doesn't really feel like I like them right? Well...I can't explain it either, but I guess there's something about ugly aliens that appeal to me. They're so scary it's just too cool. Like the Half Life aliens. Or VENOM AND CARNAGE. Especially Carnage ♥
Pretty awesome shot =D. Taken from

Okay so I've either amused you (because you think it's funny how a girl actually likes these things) or grossed you out (from the predator's face hahaha) by now. What am I getting at, really?

 ONE. I can't get enough of either of them. I don't care how crappy the movies are getting nowadays...(AVP, AVP2....the PREDALIEN?! Yeah, still looks kinda cool to me...HEHEHE) I still like to watch them tear stuff apart. So, it would be wise to buy the Alien Anthology blu ray box set, Mister D.
Looks SO COOL. Go look at it here
TWO. I like them so much that I feel the urge to collect their figurines/statues/whatever else they have. Yes, that's right. Hint hint to you, Mister D.
Only because the mask is there. And still removable. Taken from
I am very much attracted to this Alien somehow. Taken from
THREE. I don't know, I just felt like sharing my love for these two alien creatures with all of you. By the way, I'm just kidding about buying all that stuff for me, mister deeeeeeeeeeeeee. XD


Oh one last thing. If you've made it this far into my post without turning away in disgust (ladieeees XD), you won't mind answering to my title. Which do you prefer? I wonder if anyone will actually reply to this hahahaha.

Until next time!!
