Canada Post ~ “Value added service”

canada_post_00

Canada Post is our national postal service, and like many other bloggers, I’ll be writing about how much I LOVE them!  I’m just wondering how many people knew I lived in the great white north (a.k.a. Canada)?

I’ve never sent anything larger than a letter with Canada Post in my life because they are mighty expensive to ship with.  This is probably why you don’t see that many Canadian eBayers, and why Canadian exporters are at a disadvantage.  Take a look at the screenshot after the break.  The same package was EMS’d from Japan for ¥2,200.

2009 Scotiabank Nuit Blanche

nuit_2009_01

Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, Toronto’s all-night contemporary art thing, took place last night in the heart of downtown Toronto.  Nuit Blanche is an all-night art festival that originated in Paris in 2002, but have since been adopted by many other cities around the globe.  This is Toronto’s fourth Nuit Blanche, and my first time attending.

This Week in Life ~ September

DSC06891

I attended a friend’s wedding ceremony over the weekend at this lovely inn built in the late 1700s called the Old Mill Inn, located near downtown Toronto.  Funny thing is, the building is located on a street called Old Mill Road, but there were three other streets around the area called “Old Mill [Something]”…needless to say, some of us had trouble finding this place. ^^;;

As the title suggests, I’ll be talking about what I’ve been up to in the month of September in this post (or more precisely, the past two weeks.)  I should call it “This Month in Life” instead, but this week sounds better.  So what’s up in life?  School, work, etc….but mostly school and work.  They eat up 50-60 hours of my life each week not including the dreaded 10-12 hours of total commute time.  Not much of a life, heh.

Kagamin goes to the CN Tower in the second installation of FigLife.  Just between you and me, I think Kagamin has a fear of heights. Continue reading ‘FigLife ~ Kagamin at the CN Tower’

FigLife ~ A Day Out With Kagamin…

fl_kagamin_01_01

FigLife, the life of figures, is the latest category to be added to my bloggg.  FigLife will take on a slice-of-life approach to the lifestyle of my figures, with something very special in the planning process.  I hope everyone will enjoy it as much as I do. ^^

I’m launching this category with some beautiful photos from my day out with Kagamin (a.k.a. Fan Expo 2009). Continue reading ‘FigLife ~ A Day Out With Kagamin…’

Let’s take a look at some of the cosplays at Fan Expo 2009 starting with this super hero gathering…and a couple villains too.  Never knew they got together so well.

Captain America, Wolverine, Spiderman, Rogue, Riddler, Two Face, Poison Ivy, Dare Devil, Punisher, plus a few more I don’t know.  Like my Anime North coverage, I’ll be needing your help with some of these.  ^^;;

Anime North 2009

DSC01405

I was pretty excited and hyped about going to Anime North today.  Why?  It’s the first time I’m attending any otaku related events since I started watching anime and collecting figures last year.  I didn’t know what to expect from it, yet I had high expectations after reading about conventions in other cities around the world.
