Vital sign

Vital sign
Hello readers, bloggers, stalkers & random people of the blogosphere! :hionigiri:

First of all I would like to thank you for all the lovely comments on my last Obento entry, they really brightened up my days! :klimper:
I didn’t forget about you and I missed blogging very much but due to a unexpected situation it was impossible for me to continue blogging. Thankfully the worst is over but since the first part of my final exams is coming closer and closer I haven’t the time to blog until March. I’ve been a lazy bump and now I have to review a lot of topics in near-record time.

In case you were wondering whether I was sick, dead or just had enough of blogging, don’t worry, it’s something completely different. Taking a break however wasn’t bad I think. I have many, many things to tell you about, movies, artists, products, clothes and plans but I’ll keep everything (well at least almost everything) for a subsequent date. I think I’ll soon make a post with small and rather unimportant updates of my life but the topic I’m really looking forward is the movie… Let me show you one impression just to tease you. :miam:

And now, to soothe my guilty conscience: Piperita Patty your prizes are on their way to you!!! I’m awfully sorry for the delay but I was busy with a lot of unpleasant things..

That’s it for now folks! I know, there isn’t a lot of information or something else in this post but I felt like giving a vital sign especially since I really like you guys!!! Looking forward to sharing many more experiences and beautiful and special things with you!


ラブラブ Obento or Ebi in Love

ラブラブ Obento or Ebi in Love
It’s the 6th of January and still no snow in sight! I’ve heard that there’s a lot of snow in the mountains but here in Zurich there’s no snow at all. :snif: I just can’t become friends with the thought that there will be no snow in the city this year! It is raining heavily every day and the weather is grey and gloomy so I’m a little under the weather and as if this wasn’t enough, this morning I jammed my thumb.. rosy prospects? Anyway, my sore thumb & mood aren’t keeping me from bloggin and showing you my first Obento of this year!

I think it’s a quite freaky Bento! The shrimps (Ebi in Japanese.. hence the title of this post) are madly in love with the cute sleeping bunny and the chicken in the other tire is just doing his own thing. :ghihi: I didn’t really had much of a choice in the fridge but I’m satisfied with how it turned out. The most important component of this Bento is the fuchsia colored radish I think. Of course the shrimps, the bunny and the chicken are the main characters but what gives the Bento its final touch is the beautiful strong color and pattern of the radish. Without the radish it would look pretty clumsy I think! :eee:

The idea for the smaller tire was to make a salad and although it’s not visible and I was out of ‘real’ salad there is finely shredded and simmered cabbage with Japanese Goma dressing under the egg. Who found the mistake?!? Actually there are two but I’m pretty sure that no one will find the second.. hrhr :tongue: Please guess! If you have any questions regarding the ingredients don’t hesitate to ask please! But basicall it’s rice, peas, fishcake and radish for the big tire and cabbage, egg, sausage, an other kind of fishcake, Edamame and radish again for the upper tire.
But I know that most of you are here for something else today so if you want to know who won the Obento giveaway and who won the Kawaii giveaway and see more close-ups of my Bento, read on!

MewMew Tower ~ つみネコ

MewMew Tower ~ つみネコ
Get ready for a load of cuteness!!!
As I wrote in my last blog entry I spent the last few days playing silly games on the new iPad. Have you already heard of a game called MewMew Tower? :catexclam: Well basically it’s about stacking many, many cats on top of one-another to form a tower of cats high into the sky. The tricky thing is that the cats you get have all very different sizes and shapes so sometimes you have to place a really big and fat cat upon a really tiny one and this can lead to pretty farcical-looking cat towers.
If the tower looses its stability because you didn’t place the cat smartly it will start to wobble and all the cats will fall off.. Seems quite macabre doesn’t it? You can balance out the tower by moving your iPhone, iPad or whatever to the left or the right to prevent the tower from bending too much but the higher the tower the more sensitive it will react to movements. There is a hot-air balloon in the upper right corner from where you can pick one cat at the time but what cat you’ll get is luck of the draw. The cats come in three different sizes; small, medium and large. It may sound easy but you’ll need good balancing skills and a little bit of luck to set a high record. I’m not really good at it but Silvankun is! :wink:

There are several editions like MewMew Tower2, MewMew Tower Love, MewMew Tower Toy and MewMew Tower Harmony and you can downoald the light version of the original and the Love version for free. I’ve only tried the original light version but I’m about to download the Love light version right now. :totorosmile:

Of course such a kawaii game could only come from Japan and as everything cute from Japan it comes with many drop dead kawaii gadgets and even a comic. I made some screenshots of the comic and arranged them with photoshop to show it to you because I couldn’t find any pictures on the internet so here we go!

Aren’t they cute? It’s two comics with each 4 pictures and you read them vertically.. just in case you didn’t get it :nyan:

To look at more cute MewMew comics, please read on!
