Beani (9 hours ago) #2029184You say sorry by making me look at a sad Gumi?!?! :p No worries on forgetting, I'll blame MFC for notifying you too early!
Ahhhhh nooooo I just wanted to show my despair but thought maybe if I used a cute Non Gumi you would look at it and be all "awww how can I stay mad at this?" totally backfired though orz Hooray for forgiveness though :'D
Beani (4 days ago) #2022555So I replied to your message and then accidentally pressed back on my browser fff. So instead I will just wander over and thank you for the birthday wishes! I am surprised you haven't been out of Australia before, I hope the trip happens cause it's great fun overseas!
I saw some Rapunzel Lego over here and thought of you but I assume that is old news orz..
Been there. ;p You're welcome, I hope you had a nice time. ^^
Ahh yeah, my family didn't have much money growing up so couldn't go on many holidays really, I plan on making up for it though.
You know of my obsession with Tangled?! Haha I'm vaguely aware of the lego but I've never really seen it before I don't think.
Beani (9 days ago) #2014062I think MFC went nuts and notified everyone one day early but thank you for the birthday wishes! Sadly not as much waifu as I would have liked in the day though :p
Oops I didn't see this! Orz Silly MFC, lol! You're welcome! :D And there really never is enough waifu though in one's life is there? XP
You're welcome ^^
Beani (6 days ago) #2019421Haha thanks! I actually got more than I wanted so that is a win I guess!
Oh my god I just realised I didn't wish you a happy birthday! >_< I remember getting notified a day early but gaahh I'm so sorry, I hope you had a super wonderful birthday and stuffed yourself with sinfully delicious food and rolled around in your presents! ヽ( ; ∀ ; )ﾉ View spoilerHide spoilersorrysorrysorrysorrysorry
Beani (8 days ago) #2016693Family Mart is wonderful (ext link)
Is that all food!? That Teto thing is kinda scaring me (is it just bread in a a bag...?) but ahhhh all those Kagamines! I would eat those :D Do you know the name of the artist who did the one on the bottom? I've always liked their stuff, but never bothered to look it up.
Beani (21 days ago) #1994739Yeah I really really wanted a PVC of Watashi but oh well :( From memory I believe that Saber was there but I was going crazy for the other stuff they had so I didn't really notice her too much. Yeah the snow stopped a lot of people or caused them to be late. We got there eventually but we were also delayed due to train cancellations.
I'll need to start watching the Ichiban Kuji site like a hawk to see when the Kyousogiga raffle begins.
A lot of stuff happened during the lead up to the move. I'd rather not think about that anymore :p If you take a direct flight it is about 9 hours but we had a stop over in Seoul so I think it was more like 14 or so for us.
Why are you only interested in the bad things? D: Anyway I am surprised you don't know about the Japanese efficiency with regards to trains. Normally you can set your watch to them so to have them delayed or cancelled is almost unheard of. To be fair the snow is unlike any other they have seen in decades so it is understandable but to have major lines go down is a big deal here. Even a few Shinkansen went down completely, I believe the news said that affected over 360,000 people alone.
The worst train crush happened going to Wonfes actually. The line that goes out to the Wonfes venue is also shared by Tokyo Disney. Thanks to the snow causing cancelled and delayed trains the platform was absolutely full of kids, otaku, parents and couples. Totally full. We actually didn't make it onto the first train cause it was so full but this old couple was not willing to accept they wouldn't fit. The doors shut on them about 4 times before they finally crammed themselves in. Even the Japanese around us were laughing at them so I guess people aren't usually that desperate. We had similar situations late at night (near last train) and during peak hour.
The scared Japanese is just a matter of how they react. Wayfinder is quite tall so he does stand out and a lot of Japanese seem to freak out and mutter things like "Scary" or "Weird" or "Dangerous" (the last was my favourite one). Others seem to find it cool though so it is hard to tell what the Japanese as a whole really think on the matter.
The bereaucracy wasn't such a bad thing. We had to register our residency and join the health insurance scheme but luckily our ward has an English advisory desk and she helped us a lot by guiding us through the process and writing notes to give to other people. We still very much derpaherped our way through the process though. When they tried to explain we couldn't be the same "household" because we aren't married we were just totally confused and couldn't follow what was being said. But it got done!
At least Amazon JP just dropped it's shipping prices! Probably cheaper than CDJ now.
I am thinking of the correct store right? The one in the Koto store in Akiba? I can't remember seeing it but I wasn't looking too hard just cause I don't know what to look for, there was just a lot of stuff there. I can keep an eye out next time though~
Not even a BQ! That's rough, since seemingly everyone gets one of those. So how's the snow now? It feels weird knowing I won't see snow again for a while.
Yes, and let me know! 9 hours isn't too bad. My flights back home are about 14 if I travel direct, though I prefer not to. Did you leave the airport in Seoul?
Lolol no reason :D You can tell me about good things if you want, right after we get these "horror" stories out of the way. I didn't actually, but whoa that's timely! Guess I shouldn't have expected anything different from the Japanese. 360,000?! Does no one own a car?? Wait, what'd you guys do with your car(s)? Ship them over? That must have been a weird train ride. So, are people noisy while riding, or is it eerily quiet? I'm guessing the latter. Lol old people.
LOL, ahahahaha, yes I'm sure he is completely dangerous. That is seriously funny though. I mean, they just think that because he's a foreigner? Quite tall like over 6? Is this your first time living overseas?
Oh God that must have been the worst. My parents are always telling us how hard it was to set all that type of stuff up when they first moved over here. Though I'm sure Japan is 1831781 times more organized than Saudi :p So you guys are all set now?
Really? CDJ's shipping is already pretty cheap so I'm hesitant, but I'll check it out. Hey you lied to me, shipping is 1100 D:<
I think there's more than one store, but honestly I'm not sure. But we're probably thinking of the same one, yes.
Hope you have a great day
happy birthday! お誕生日おめでとうございます♥

Beani (13 days ago) #2008146Oh yeah lots, kinda one of those if it could go wrong it did kinda thing. At least that is all back in Australia now and I can forget about it if I need to :p
Yeah we did though I feel like we also managed to miss so much stuff. Next time we will have to do some better browsing I think! I actually saw a circle saying that the weather was so awful and everything was so stressful that they would actually skip next Wonfes. Summer will probably be a killer due to the heat though D:
Theme cafes tend to be on the more expensive side but I guess you are paying for the experience more than anything. That's fine really, novelty tax is expected. :)
My friend who is a Disney Theme Park fanatic said that Tokyo Disney is actually meant to be one of the best cause it is the most modern but after he went there last month he didn't seem to rave about it as much as DisneyWorld Florida. Have you been to any of the Disney parks before? I've only been to the one in LA so far and that was as a kid.Ah yeah I know what you mean, glad everything’s okay now though!
At least you know what you’re in for next time ^_~ I kinda don’t blame them to be honest but it might not be so bad next year anyway. Hmm still would probably be better than lots of snow and cold I’m guessing though. At least you'll have a bit more resistance to the heat. ;p
That’s true, I’ve always noticed that’s the case with those sorts of café's anyway anyway. ^^
I don’t know many of the differences between the two parks but that does sound reassuring, I wouldn’t miss out on the chance anyway. ^^ I haven’t unfortunately but there’s a planned trip for America among my family currently happening and Disney World Florida is on the list if it actually happens that is. >: I’ve never left Australia actually haha.
Happy Birthday by the way! :)
Happy birthday, yo!
Happy birthday! :D Have an awesome one.
