I am sitting here waiting for family and friends to arrive for the party, so I decided to try and snap some pictures of my dad's salt water tank. Spent about an hour snapping away with over 100 shots and only a few came out alright. I learned a lot just from doing this exercise today though so I'll try again later. These are not all the fishes that are in the tank, some are so sneaky and just seems to know that I want a picture of it so it is always hiding!

I like this shot even though it's a little out of focus, the color and tone just seems right.

Here's one with better focus, you can really see the intricate pattern on its scales.

This little orange clownfish is my favourite...

Because it loves to snuggle with this coral reef, it's so funny!

And here's Nemo.

And this pair here.

Merry Christmas!

Just want to wish everyone Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

I haven't bought a TF for a while, but just picked this one up because she looks like a geisha!

Lego Creations #2: Yummy!

I realized that once I sit in front of the Lego's with an idea in mind, I can sit there for hours on end without even noticing it. It's actually quite a fun thing to do to past time. I made these two creations in the last few days.

Black Friday Haul Part 2

I also got these on Black Friday, I am still considering whether I'll keep them or not though. I am a sucker for these types of role-play toys like the Kamen Rider henshin belts. I probably played with them a couple of times out of the box and then they go on the shelf. I do like how they look on display though. Actually I sort of regret not getting the regular MMPR morpher

Lego Fun #1!

Exams are over and I've finished my final project for the year. Tomorrow's the last day of class for the term, so what better than to just sit down, relax, and play with Lego's?

These are my two creations for tonight.

Black Friday Lego Haul

I picked up two sets of Lego Creative Tower on Black Friday, they are basically a mix of color bricks, each tower includes 1600 pieces! What am I going to do with them? I am not sure of that myself...

Amiibo Kirby

I picked up my first Nintendo Amiibo today for Super Smash Brothers on the Wii U. I decided to get Kirby because he is my favourite character to use because of his attack copying power. I didn't really get into the whole toy figure/video game thing like Skylanders and Disney Infinity because they seem like they are for little kids. So when Nintendo announced these Amiibo figures, I just brushed it off. But I saw these figures in the store and really want to try one to see what it's all about.

The packaging is actually quite nice and it is perfect to keep NIB for display. But I bought this for the NFC functionality so I ripped it out of its packaging the moment I got home. The figure itself is quite hefty and doesn't feel cheap at all. The paint job is clean and it looks really nice, but it's Kirby so he's pretty simple to begin with. So basically what these little figures do is they allow you to own and create a customized AI for yourself. You can actually do this in the game without owning an Amiibo already, but apparently the more you train with it, the better it gets. I am not sure if it actually fights to your fighting style. But I can definitely see the progress now that I got him up to level 50 (the cap).

I think I will pick up a few more of my favourite characters that do not have figures in the future, but I feel it's sort of expensive for what it is ($15 after tax here in Canada).
