Just as the post title says! Happy Birthday Manga Weekend! Strictly speaking it was yesterday since its already pass 12 am but it’s alright since the Americas is still on the 28th well…yeah. Anyway, we are now officially a year old! What initially was a dusty wardrobe for the first two months has now involved to be a pimped up room which we Manga Weekenders here love very much! Arawr and I are so very happy to have started this blog out even if Arawr was all “I don’t think we have time dude” on me about it at the beginning. Well, we still don’t have time, but we somehow we manage to keep the blog alive(barely)!
I really wanted to prepare a little something to commemorate the event but Arawr and I are still busy like a baws! In any case, THANK YOU to all who have stuck by us and welcome to our new visitors! With the current size and support we’re getting, we just might have our very own domain!
This is Chungky signing out.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Happy Valentine’s Day all round please.
Maybe you’ll receive some confession today, or are you going to confess, how saucy. If you’re in Japan, it’ll probably be only girls doing their thang. If you’ve got no reason in particular to celebrate this day, go chill with your friends or your family and get into the spirit. No? Well, HAPPY FACE. I have no idea what else to say but arawr decided to share some last minute V-day gift recommendations too which I will be posting sometime throughout the day!
Here’s our Valentine’s Day mascots and love-related role models. Syaoran & Sakura~
They’ve been introduced in Card-Captor Sakura then they lived on in another dimension then he got cloned, Sakura lost her memories and other severe complications happened but yet their love is still undying. Honestly, if these two can’t make it I don’t know who else can.
My favourite couple this time round is gonna have to be Gakuen Alice’s Natsume & Mikan. Their love went on in a whole new level in the latest chapters. It feels like something beyond that, I bawled my eyes out.
Oh yes, arawr’s favorite couple is Shinichi & Ran from Dectective Conan. (I just remembered I sorta dissed them in my oneshot post)
Who’s your favourite couple this year round?
Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day.
恭禧发财 | Gong Xi Fa Cai
Chinese New Year: Feb 3rd – 17th, 2011
恭禧发财 | Gong Xi Fa Cai to all who celebrate.
Those who don’t, Happy Lunar New Year. Go pester your neighbours by shouting Gong Xi Fa Cai at their faces. Though that is ironic since you’re wishing them a prosperity, well, maybe they might not understand what you’re saying.
Fruit Basket's Momiji as our Chinese New Year mascot!
Go eat lots of good food. Stuff your faces. Wear your new clothes. Wear Red. Wear a cheong-sam. Go enjoy your city/town’s Chinese New Year festivities.

Ah, Chinese New Year~
I remember back in my more-younger-days where I use to get up at 8:00AM every single day during the Chinese New Year celebration, eagerly waiting for a Lion or Qilin(Chinese Unicorn) to visit my family’s home. Chinese New Year also consisted of heading back to a small old town, sitting around the round table to have dinner. And of course receiving red packets/Ang Pau filled with money.

I would visit relatives/friend’s opening house & receive a packet of money – how cool is that? (It is a custom that married couples give ang-pau by the way).
Now enough of lamenting about the past. It’s a New Lunar Year of the Rabbit and we should all look forwards. Let’s make new memories & hold on to our dreams or maybe have new ones.
Arawr & I have planned Chinese themed posts so look forward those!
Manga Weekend sincerely wishes you a very Happy Chinese New Year. May the Year of the Rabbit be filled with good fortune for you & your family, Gong Xi Fa Cai!
PS. If something goes wrong during this Chinese New Year. Say “suì suì ping ān” to ward off bad luck. Remember Chinese New Year lasts for 15 days.
so i just arrived back home in london from venice. i feel as if i’ve been deprived of the internet for a century but that has cleared up now. i was about to write a new ‘random’ post then i decided to screw the name ‘random topic.’ because. well. its just. so. ew. so i’m just going to destroy ‘random topics’ altogether and just give each of these ‘random’ posts an individual name from now on. now to write up a new post !!!
Oh-kay I’m kind of back in commision after a little *ahem* over a week in London and meeting up with quite a huge portion of my old schoolmates (Chungky included!) for Christmas and the New Year but I’m back now!
So. I’m about 5 days late (6 days, according to the right side of the world where HOME is…) but HAPPY NEW YEAR!! It better be an awesome one since according to the Mayans we’re all going to die next year in 2012. Well, technically speaking, something like 1 year and 11 months since the date is December 20 something =P
