Happy 2009! =^.^=
Wow. The Otaku Fridge is going 12 years in May, so I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that this would be a good year, not only for me but also for all my visitors. (The boards are still on weird status but I still haven't gotten around to figuring out what to do with it.)
First things first, another artist for our muse. The artist is Jedidiah Dumawal, a former student of mine. Very talented. So talented, in fact, that he had been called "Panginoong Jed" (Lord Jed) by the Asia Pacific College's upperclassmen and lower batches alike. He drew the sleeping neko-chan six months ago, right after his graduation, but it took me this long to post it. Remember that the neko-chan is based on me? Well, I procrastinated for so long that those bangs actually grew out. -_-;;; (My hair is still partially highlighted with reds, though.)
Why a sleeping neko-chan? Hm. 2008 deprived me of sleep. So I want to have more of that in 2009. Hehehe.
I'm sorry that I have been sloooooow to update. There's always something in my schedule, ne? This time it's Ph.D studies. And the usual, which is work. I'm training future game developers so I suppose all is not lost. I'm actually loving my work so much that I tend to neglect the other important things. Like partying. Heh. Or watching anime, something I haven't done since last summer. This is why I'm loving my Nintendo DS and Sony PSP. I don't have to go home and plug 'em in so I can play. I bring them with me on trips and when I'm waiting for something at work. If my PSP had bigger memory, maybe then I can watch anime more often.
In any case, I'll try to update as often as I can. I even started the new year with two reviews. One positive and one negative. Both are Final Fantasy games on portable consoles:
A third review, for another Ivalice Alliance tactics game on the DS, is coming up but I'm enjoying the game so much that I don't even want to think about getting to the ending. Clocked in over 100 hours during the holidays and I just can't stop exploring. Of course, now that the holiday is almost over (I start work again tomorrow, darn), the gaming might slow down. Other plans for the Fridge this 2009 include adding a new section for J-Dorama and Live Action. I'm currently watching Galileo.
But I enjoyed Christmas and New Year and I hope everyone did, too. I'm wishing you guys the best that 2009 has to offer.
Again, happy 2009, everyone! Enjoy!
