Minna-san!

Happy (late) New Year!


I wish you peace within your heart, love from family and friends and faith to guide your way.
And may this year bring us tons of delightful figurines releases!


I guess, everyone is aware that Chinese New Year 4708, or 2010 in the Western calendar, is the Year of the Metal Tiger. Huh, probably this New Year card would suit best...



***


In Russia New Year is considered to be one of major holidays and most of us celebrate it grandly. Some parties can last several days, and before it many women and girls spend a weekend cleaning houses, buying food and cooking-cooking-&-cooking meals. That's exactly the reason why I disappeared for a couple of days.

Oh, the celebration... it was great! Although I spent New Year's Eve with only 2 intimate friends, but we had tons of food, wine and... PS3 :) One of the boys brought Tekken 6 (which isn't my favoring fighting, but still a cute game), and another thing we always play together is Little Big Planet.



Ha-ha, I remember when I was 16, I felt shy when it came to photos. I knew I was kinda average and was jealous of other girls looks :) Somehow that complex managed to disappear. Blogging becomes much more brighter with photos, don't you think?





And during the day before and after the party we visited our relatives (those who live in Moscow), drinking wine (or tea) and exchanging presents. Ah, presents! I got plenty this year :) Not all Russians spend lots of money on New Year presents, but in our family we do. I remember when I was a kid I never got a present for a good mark or something, but I always got a bunch for New Year and Birthday. This time I received plaid, slippers, makeup stuff, scarves - ya, these are common family gifts - but still lovely! I also got a charming new watch... and even 1 figurine managed to arrive in time - 1/6 Rei by Kotobukiya. The other girls had to celebrate New Year somewhere in EMS or customs office...

I promised Rei to make a full-value photo-session later and permitted her to use my new shower gels ^_^

It seems you had a lot of fun. :) LittleBigPlanet does make for a great party game, it's a shame I haven't played it in ages. I should get back to it!

That outfit is really adorable, I love it! ^^ The pic with the pout is cute. Pictures really do brighten up blogs!

Thank you :) I bought these clothes back in Japan last summer, but thanks to our harsh weather - New Year's Eve became the first time I actually wore the dress :P

Happy New Year!
Yay Taiga! XD
That's a really cute outfit you have there. Personally I'd say you're above average. :)
Looks like you had a lot of fun. I just ate Chinese food with my family. We were supposed to go bowling after but the place was out of lanes. >_<
But I'm not a big fan of bowling so it was an okay New Years from my point of view.
Oh, and nice Rei, too. ^_^

Thank you for the kind words, Aaron :)
I'd probably celebrate the next New Year with my family as well. When you grow older, you start to understand the importance of the family...
