Dear Diary,

What does Philippines and Thailand (or a lot of other countries) have in common?   They have a lot of  Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants.  In fact there’s one near our work place.  So one day after lunch.  My Thai co-worker and I, decided to have some fun with our cups.

🙂 Find other posts about Cups around the world here:    Travel theme: World Cups

 

Love lots,

Dear Diary,

I’m a big fan of Chuck (TV Series 2007 – 2012).  Yvonne Strahovski plays the leading lady and kicks ass in the show!  She recently played a recurring part in Dexter Season 7 (which I also love watching).

Lo and behold, as I was browsing her filmography in IMDB.COM, I saw that she also voiced Aya Brea in the game The 3rd Birthday.

I got addicted to Parasite Eve since it first came out with the Playstation One.  I was so happy when I found that there was a 3rd sequel for the PSP.  And the surprise was that all that time that I was playing it, it was actually Yvonne that I was hearing… Now that I listen back to all the cutscene, I can now imagine that it was Yvonne behind the scenes…

Click the link below to watch Yvonne’s interview about voicing Aya Brea:

Do not click on the next link if you have not played The 3rd Birthday and wish to play it in the future, because the link shows cut scenes from the game…

So, yeah. I’m a fan!

RPGs and MMORPGs

Dear Diary,

My hubby and I are both gamers. I love RPG and he loves MMORPG.

I fell in love with Role Playing Games (RPG) when my mom and aunt bought my brother a Playstation… It’s basically a game that revolves heavily on the story where a player can develop the character’s level as he progresses throughout the game.

My first RPG game was Final Fantasy 8. And from then on, I was hooked! Currently, I’m still trying to finish Final Fantasy 13… (I know, I’m too slow, but that’s because I don’t play 24/7.) Aside from all the Final Fantasy games, I also love Parasite Eve series, Star Ocean series and Shadow Hearts series.

Massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) is similar to RPG but as the name implies, it is played online while interacting with other players all around the globe. This is what my husband is into… I tried it once, but didn’t get hooked because I’m a story person, I need drama, action, romance, comedy and a happy ending…  He gave me a list of games that he currently and used to play:

MMORPG:
MU Online- Webzen
Digimon Battle
Dragonest – Inactive (Hybernate Mode)
Fly For Fun – Inactive (Hybernate Mode)
Runescape Online 2
Lineage 2 Official – Inactive (Hybernate Mode)
World Of Warcraft – Toxic Wow Server (Private Server) – Inactive Hybernate Mode

Here’s a link of a list of Top MMORPG out there:  http://www.squidoo.com/top-mmorpg-games

And that one game, where you wish you weren’t addicted too… But can’t help but play it… and wait for your life to replenish so you can continue… that one game where you only log in to Facebook to see if you can continue playing…  that game that I have no idea what category it belongs to…  But I like to categorize it as my time-waster…  CANDY CRUSH SAGA!!!! hehe

That’s all for now… gota login to FB now… hehe
