RX-78 Odaiba Gundam

1 07 2009

Some of my favorite blogs has been publishing stuff about a giant Gundam replica/statue that was being built at Odaiba, an artificial island close to Tokyo in Japan.
Been some months from the first news about it. In what seemed an incredibly fast speed, the project has already been finished, and had it’s first few presentations:

Turns out not only the Gundam RX-78 is a very detailed replica, but it also can move it’s head, and also gives a show with steam and lights involved.

Kyon’s Sister and Cactus Dog at Curitiba’s Botanical Garden

11 02 2009

I’m fortunate to be living in a city that, while isn’t as big or as famous as others like São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, it’s still a place you can find most things you want, also having a great weather IMO (colder than average), and lots of nice green parks and gardens to visit… I’m talking about Curitiba.

Every now and then I get to go to some of the tourist sites… this time I went to the Botanical Garden of Curitiba (Jardim Botânico de Curitiba). Took Kyon’s Sister and Cactus Dog along with me.

Figures: Importing vs. Buying Localy in Brazil

27 01 2009

Brazilian figure fans probably made themselves this question: To buy figures in Brazil (at Liberdade district mainly) or to buy them in international online stores?

With that question in mind, I decided to conduct an experience. In this post, I’ll show the results of this experience.
For those living in Brazil that are interested in buying something other than figures in international onlines stores, this topic might be worthy the read… since most products follows the same rules.

Nendoroid Miku and Teishoku

16 01 2009

Late last year I found a japanese restaurant here where I live (Curitiba-Brazil) that serves traditional japanese Teishoku… which are “meal kits” that has different stuff to compose a complete meal.

Miku Teishoku

Miku Teishoku

Sorry for the bad pic… the restaurant was full, we got this table next to the kitchen which was in a badly lighted area… and I use a cellphone cam, so… 😛

But anyways, the meal was very nice. Chicken didn’t look so great but it tasted ok.
I had better teishokus in other brazilian cities, but this one wasn’t bad… just not great. 😛

It’s unusual in Brazil, though very common in Japan… in Brazil when you say “japanese restaurant” it’s usually sushi, sashimi or yakissoba.

Ever tasted japanese teishokus? Do you like them?

Check another post I made with delicious onsen and ryokan food.

Tsuruya-san and megas delicious Subway cookies nyoro

14 01 2009

Been a long time I don’t make food + figure posts…

Tsuruya Subway Cookies

Tsuruya Subway Cookies

The question this time is: Do you have any food addictions?
I love Subway cookies… they are deliciously moist! 😛
The only downside is that sometimes they smell just like Subway sandwiches… xD
