New Arrival: 1/100 Master Grade RX-93 ν Gundam

Here is my latest acquisition in my Gunpla collection: a 1/100 Master Grade RX-93 ν Gundam kit. I just got it yesterday from Greattoys, after much deliberation between me and my inner Kira. I chose between this and the 1/100 RX-78-2 Gundam One Year War Version, but decided to choose Amuro Ray’s last mobile suit instead. Hopefully I made the right choice.

I tried to start this kit about 3AM this morning when I suddenly woke up, but I didn’t push thru after two parts. I needed a 2.0 mm Philipps screwdriver, and all I had are sized 1.8 mm down and 2.4 mm up! Ruined one of the included 2.0 mm screws with the kit in the process. *sigh* Gonna drop by the DIY shop later.

I’ll update the progress of this kit in following days. I’m looking forward to a few, late nights of model building!

Ultimate Caldereta!

This, ladies and gentlemen, is Mom’s Ultimate Caldereta.

This is the ultimate secret, on why I am the Ultimate Coordinator.  This is the ultimate secret to SEED.  Fear its tenderness in meat, the spiciness in chili peppers, shallots and garlic, the sauciness in rich tomato and soy sauce, the creaminess in melted cheese.

Without the Ultimate Caldereta, the universe is nothing.

I am nothing.

You are nothing.

Everything is nothing.

Bow down to the power of the Ultimate Caldereta.

Sieg UC!!! 

Update On My Tita’s Condition

Today marks the one week mark of my Tita Gi’s stay in the hospital after having suffered that stroke early Sunday morning.  While she’s still confined at Medical City in Ortigas, she has achieved good progress.  She’s now out of the Acute Stroke Unit after spending four days there, and now beginning treatment and physical therapy both at the bedside and in the Physical Rehabilitation Section of the Medical City.  Hopefully she’ll get well enough to be home within the next week.  I’ll update you guys on her progress on some of my next posts.
