Sapphire the Samsung Galaxy S3
February 23, 2013 @ 1:06 pm (Permalink)
A few days ago, my old phone basically kaputed. Well, it was fixable, more or less, but it’d require reformatting the whole phone. Even then, I’d still have trouble with it, so that made me decide to just get a new phone, with a new number, on a new carrier.
I sought out one of my cousins to help me get this phone. Through research and friends, I decided to get the Samsung Galaxy S3 in pebble blue, on SK Telecom, with the LTE 42 plan that comes with 180 minutes of phone call, 200 text messages, and 1.1 GB of data.
My verdict so far? I LOVE IT. It is so much faster than my old phone, with more available RAM memory at 700-900mb (compared to 200mb on my previous phone), and it just feels so new. I do not regret choosing to upgrade to this phone. In fact, I feel like I should have done this sooner!
Sakura the 3DS XL

Everyone, meet my new Nintendo 3DS XL named Sakura. This baby almost didn’t make it to me because my dad accidentally left it on top of the car O_O; I’m very, very glad nobody took this package!
Oh, and for those who do not me well — I am not a fan of pink. In fact, I usually avoid anything in pink, orange, red, and so forth so on, but I actually like this shade, and I really didn’t like the other colour choices of blue and red, so pink it is.
Now with Sakura in my possession, I can finally play Tales of the Abyss and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy!
Hikaru the Kindle Paperwhite

Guess what finally came to me? A Kindle Paperwhite! Whoo hoo! Now I can read in the dark! Hence why I named it “Hikaru” :D
A more thorough “review” will come after I survive the next two weeks of work fun.
Alabaster the Vita

After months of debating and pondering between getting a PS Vita or a 3DS XL first, I asked my dad to get the PS Vita as a Christmas/birthday present. I went with the Vita because . . . well that was all the PX had. I didn’t see any 3DS XL, so I went with what was available, though I was going to get a 3DS XL first because my friend M. gifted me Tales of the Abyss for the 3DS XL.
So I got the Vita and named it Alabaster. I went to the Yongsan Electronics Market to get the case and stuff. I went to the same place that I got my PSP 3000 accessories. I love that bloke who runs his vendor. He cleans and puts everything on for me. Plus, the plastic case, the carrying case, and the screen protector stickers for the front and the back of the Vita were all 25,000 won (about $22 USD). I was expecting to pay more than that, so I was surprised that it was cheaper than I had estimated :D
Welp, now I will have fun figuring this new baby out! I can’t wait until I get Persona 4: Golden and Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward!
Happy Home-Made Holidays!

Holiday Fudge! (recipe)
Holiday Spiced Nuts! (recipe)
Holiday Sugar and Coffee Scrubs! (recipe)
Throughout this year, I had discovered how to make various little DIY gifts, so I decided to combine all what I knew to give them to people for the holidays this year. So the above things I made this year were gifted to various people. Despite the time crunch I found myself in, I really had fun doing this. So much easier and better than going out and buying gifts. Shopping for ingredients and supplies is far easier than shopping for like 10+ people!
All of the gifts above, the 46 holidays card I mailed off, 24 holiday goodie bags for the kids I work with, a letter book to M., and of course this gift . . . I ended up only buying gifts for two little kids and some coffee for my two male co-workers. Not bad, I say! Anyway, Happy Holidays! I hope you all have a good one!
