My Mexico Cruise

I left for my Mexico Cruise on Sept 7, 2008 at 4:00pm Pacific Time. I boarded on the Carnival Pride at around noon time. We left Long Beach Port at 4:00pm. The ship had about 2100 cruisers on board with about 1000 staff members. 10 decks. Pretty big.

So from Sunday to Tuesday, we were at sea, traveling to our first port, Puerto Vallarta. What did I do during that time? Well, I watched TV, sleep, eat, played some video games, watched Kamen Rider Ryuki episodes 1-4, played bingo, explored the ship, etc. The worst day at sea was Tuesday. It was very rough, the ship was moving back and forth, up and down. I stayed in bed all day that day.

On Wednesday, we docked at Puerto Vallarta. My family (old man, mom, and I), along with my parent's friend family, which consists of the mother, father, and daughter (she's like 2 older than me if I remember), hired a private tour guide and went to see downtown, some waterfalls, and a tequilla factory. I tasted a sweet tequilla, and I have to say that I didn't like it. We were due back on the Pride at 5:00 pm.

On Thursday, we arrived at Mazatlan. Unfortunately, it was raining hard. We went outside only to come back inside the ship. I spent the whole day catching up on Shaman King manga.

Friday, we were at Cabo San Lucas. The weather was very nice. We just took a look around the town before we were due back on the ship by 3:30 pm.

Saturday was the day the ship headed back to Long Beach port. Nothing much to do but relax and realized that school starts the following Thursday.

Sunday, we were back at Long Beach California. Getting off the ship was sooooo long. Should have done the self assist, where we have to get out luggage out ourselves rather than let the staff take it. They started letting people off at around 8:00 am for those that didn't have a flight to catch. (those people left earlier) We didn't get off the ship until about noon time.

The food on the ship was ok. There was a buffet on Deck 9. Dinner was served on Decks 2 and 3, however, if you wanted to eat at the buffet, you can. The buffet was opened until 1:00 am in the morning. For dinner, we sat with a nice family from Palm Springs, it was a husband, wife, and their eldest son. They had a daughter too, but she was in her senior year of HS and didn't want to miss senior year. Maybe I'll see them again, it's a very very small world you know. But to tell you guys the truth, I am sick on non Asian food. When I got back on Sunday, Sept 14, I had a bowl of pho (Mmmmmmm, pho) and was full for the whole day.

All in all, it was fun cruise except for that Tuesday. I would totally go on another cruise if given the chance. And now I leave you guys with pictures from my cruise. I am not in most of them since I was taking some of the pictures or having fun. My old man took most of them. However, since I don't like him, I did not include pictures of him, unless he's in a family pic or a nice pic with my mom. My mom's in alot of the pics that I posted though. Enjoy the pictures of my cruise!!!


Cruise Pictures Ahead!!!

Earthquake

I have nothing really to report, other than I felt the earthquake a few days ago. *the earthquake that hit Chino Hills in SoCal* At first I thought it was one of my nephews walking/running upstairs hard, making the floor shake or it was a heavy truck passing by. But after a few seconds, I realized that it was an earthquake. No damage to my place since I live an hour away from the source (Chino Hills).

More Tales of Randomness!

Since I brought so many Tales of games lately.

I've played/playing ToD, ToS, ToA, ToW: RM (PSP), and ToL. My favorite so far is ToA, working on my 3rd run through. My favorite characters are Guy and Asch. I just finished ToS a few weeks ago and now working on my second run through to get all the items, weapons, titles, costumes, etc. Favorite characters for ToS is Kratos and Sheena. ToL, I finished the main storyline and now working on the last character quest....that's been like 2/3 years now, I got bored of it since I couldn't beat a boss XD. Favorite character is Chloe. ToD, I just started. I just reserved ToV and ToS: KoR. I'm looking forward to play ToS: KoR when it's released States side this fall. I would like to play ToV, but I don't have a 360. Reason why I reserved it was that by the time I get a 360, I probably won't be able to find ToV. Trying to find ToS and ToA was hell, especially ToS since GC games are out of production.

I've watched the ToS animation, and I'm hoping they do another 4 episodes to finish it. Oh and I just found out that there's going to be a ToA TV series anime! Woot Woot!! I found out a month later, but heck, better late than never. It's gonna be airing this October and will have 26 episodes (according to ANN).

Here's the official site:

http://www.tv-toa.jp/


And here's "Tales of" 08 conference:

http://www.famitsu.com/fwtv/?51216409


This is the part of ToA anime shown at the conference:


I love Guy's scene this clip. lol XDD

Gawd, I can't wait till all the new Tales games and Abyss anime to come out! I wish they port all of the Tales that weren't release outside of Japan. I really want to play Destiny on the PSP.[/color]

"Tales of" Randomness!

I just got a helluva lotta Tales of games recently. I got Tales of Symphonia a few weeks back. I just got Tales of the World PSP and Tales of Phantasia for GBA, both used. I just received my copy of NEW Tales of the Abyss that I ordered. I preordered Tales of Vesperia, even though I don't have a 360, I figured by the time I get one, ToV isn't being made anymore, and I also preordered Tales of Symphonia: Knights of Ratatosk.

More AX stuff

Well, here's what audio I got from Toshihiki Seki-san panel. Please remember, I got this with my old camera, so the quality isn't that great. Enjoy!



Audio Files Multiply stream

Audio files download

He was wearing a Momotaros shirt that day. Since I sat like 4 rows from the front center, my camera wasn't good enough to capture that shot. And there was no personal photo allowed, out of courtesy. So if I can find a good quality picture of that shot, I'll post it.


And this is what I got from AX.

AX!!!

So I'm home from AX. It was a busy day. There were good cosplay and bad cosplay. All in all, d a great time! And I got to meet Toshihiki Seki, the voice of Momotaros!! Sugoi! Unfortunately, videos are not allowed, only pictures and audio. I'll be posting some audio tomorrow. This is not the best audio since my camera kinda old, so DON'T complain! However, here are the photos that I took. It's not much. As for Seki-san photos, I sat in the middle column, like 4 rows from the stage, so it's not the best either. Enjoy!

Tales of Symphonia GET!

I just recently brought Tales of Symphonia original ver. used. For some reasons, everyone who brought the game likes it sooooo much, I had a hard time finding a used version at the store. As for a new version, I haven't been able to find one, so I went with used. Plus I think they stopped making GC games now that Wii is out. I did a search on ebay and amazon. Amazon's price was $50 for New Players Choice, and ebay, I found a bunch of used copies, new copies that were on bid and by the time the bid ends, it would be $40+, and new copies that were $50+. Man I wish they ported the PS2 version over to the US. Maybe they'll sell new copies of ToS when the sequel comes out (at least in Japan, I don't know when the NA ver will be out).

Oh, did I mention that my mp3 player died on me yesterday? It lived for a year then it died yesterday, and now I have to get a new one. Can anyone yell "Ipod nano?" Yup, I'm planning to get an Ipod Nano 4 GB, preferably in green.

@bento: I'm gonna get Persona 3 (it sounds interesting) next time. Plus, I probably should play Onimushu (sp? too lazy to look up) and Devil May Cry 3, since I borrowed it from my cuz....

So here's the OP for Tales of Symphonia!

PS2 Intro JPN



GC Intro JPN



GC Intro US


And here's the trailer for the sequel/spinoff to ToS, Tales of Symphonia: Knights of Ratatosk, which I'm planning to get when it's coming out in the US. (sometime in Winter 08 I think)

InuYasha is ENDING!!!

Finally, InuYasha is ending! I read some of the first few volumes, then skipped over to volume 50, chapter 489, and read until the latest chapter. Next week is the end of InuYasha, making it a total of 558 chapters. During the chapters that I read, it was mostly talk talk talk, boring boring boring, cliffhanger, cliffhanger, cliffhanger. Then it got good for some parts, and now it's ending. YAY! FINALLY! I can only read InuYasha for so much. The people who actually read from beginning to end, I don't know how they did it, but they did. They stuck with the manga for it's entire run.

Now to wait for the final chapter, ch 558. Hopefully, it'll be a good ending, maybe ionno...50 pages? Yeah that should be good enough for the finale.

For All You Turtle Fans Out There!

A few days ago, I found out that Sailor Spork had subbed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Superman Legend. There are 2 episodes to this OVA. So, I've taken the liberty of uploading these 2 episodes onto Veoh. Koani and turtle fans, this is for you!

Summary from ANN:

When the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles acquire Mutastones from Crys-Mu, the spirit of light, they acquire the ability to enhance themselves into Super Turtles for a duration of three minutes. Meanwhile, the evil Shredder and his minions Bebop and Rocksteady stumble upon the Dark Mutastone, which transforms them into Devil Shredder, Supermutant Bebop and Supermutant Rocksteady, respectively. But the Turtles have one more trick up their shells: all four of them can combine into their ultimate form - Turtle Saint.

Episode 1
Episode 2

Enjoy watching!!

Meet Momotaros

You read right. Seiyuu Toshihiko Seki will be attending Anime Expo this year in the LA Convention Center. After I saw this, I decided to definitely go to AX. *was still thinking on whether or not to go before* Gonna bring my I-doll Momo for him to sign.

*thinks of what to say to him* Maybe "Ore Sanjou" or "Ore wa hissatsu waza [part *insert number*]"

So, who else is planning to go. We'll meet up. =)

Oh the joy of having the school quarter coming to a close. /sarcasm

Quarter is ending soon. I want it to end, yet I don't (cause of finals and grades). I hate this time of the semester/quarter. So much to do, so little time.

A Power Rangers MV

Lips of An Angel


The quality's low, so the vid was pixym but all in all, nicely done. *go Tommy/Kat!!*

A Cosplay vid called Perhaps Love



I like it. Cosplayers in the vid are awesome!!

Kamen Rider Den-O

Summary
credit to Koryuu of TV Nihon

Den-O is my favorite. (Well, it was my first Kamen Rider so technically it would be my favorite right now. XD) It had such memorable characters that I cried in the end.

Series had a great cast IMO. Sato Takeru was a new actor (I believe) and he perfectly portrayed 7 characters, including his character, in the show. I don't know who/how someone can dish out 7 characters in the same show and continue to the end, but Takeru did it.

Here's a link to view this awesome Kamen Rider show. Link

Asian Seaweed: Behind the Scenes

Walking through Grand Century in San Jose, CA

~shin: What to buy some Asian CDs?
Neko: Sure
~shin: What?!
Neko: Asian seaweed is good.
~shin: I said Asian CDs.
Neko: I thought you said Asian Seaweed.
*~shin & Neko*: LOL

Butter Knife

Butter Knife is my livejournal journal. Here’s the story behind it:

The Story Behind Butter Knife
*Neko places Vampire Knight on the floor next to her desk and walks away*
*~shin uses Laptop, which was on the desk*
Neko walks next to ~shin and says: Pass me Vampire Knight.
~shin looks and says: There’s no Butter Knife
Neko: I said Vampire Knight, no Butter Knife!
~shin: O oh *hands Neko Vampire Knight*
*Neko and ~shin starts laughing*
Neko: How did you hear Butter Knife? I said Vampire Knight
~shin: No, you said Butter Knife.

(~shin is my nephew, who’s a year older then me)

And that, my friends, is the story behind Butter Knife.

The Rules

Once or twice a month, I’ll post a few Foreign Disney songs up for grab, they’ll be available for 30 days since post date. For toku, every time there is a release from a group, I’ll post it here.

Rules:

1. DO NOT REQUEST ANY SONG IN COMMENTS. I only take requests if you are from Japanese Disney Forums. All requests must be from Japanese Disney.

Welcome to Asian Seaweed

Ok, I finally know what this blog is going to be about. It is going to be about:

Foreign Disney Music and Toku shows and music.

Once a week, I’ll post a few Foreign Disney songs up for grab, they’ll be available until the link expires. Please don’t ask me for reuploads. Hopefully, I’ll be able to find a video clip of it too.

Tokusatsu, toku for short, means “special effects” in Japanese. 3 main genre of toku are kaiju monster movies (imagine Godzilla), superhero TV series, and mecha drama. I love toku. My favorite series is Kamen Rider Den-O so far. I’ll be posting full episodes on Veoh, as well as Direct Download links. Please don’t download from Veoh. The DD links I’m providing are HQ TV rips of the episode. Downloading from Veoh takes the same amount of space as the original file, so why not download the original file to begin with?

I love the D-Boys, so I’ll also be posting what I can find of them too.
