So one of my favourite shows of the last couple of years "Thunderbolt Fantasy" started its second season. "Thunderbolt Fantasy" is a fusion Taiwanese/Japanese show using puppets with a noted Japanese Fantasy Anime Writer. It is well written humourous and the puppetry is wonderful. The start of the second season is as great as the first season.

I've packed six 15L Plastic Lidded...

Yesterday I went into the CBD to collect comics, DVD's and Books. I remembered I needed some batteries so I stopped and browsed at an Officeworks. There was a new Device that I didn't know existed but feel is definitely useful if not needed, The double headed Flash Drive, USB on one side, micro-USB on the other. FYI :D

I enjoyed it but not as much as the original.

Found two new anime that I like quite a lot "Record of Grancrest War" and "Death March to Parallel World Rhapsody"

I bussed in the first day and had a dizzy spell on the bus when returning home. I think it was caused by dehydration causing a blood pressure drop.... I think! It could also have been low blood sugar but there's no way to tell and the last time they checked I went through a battery of tests with no diagnosis. I had another...

.... doesn't just involve cooking the pork perfectly and getting good crackling it also involves getting crispy but soft roast vegetables. I only missed by a smidgeon, the veges weren't quite crisp enough.

On Friday I went to the work christmas function although I'm still on holidays. I mean it was "free" food, amirite? I left after three hours because my anxiety levels...

.... made it all the way through "Fringe". I have "Legion" to watch but that's merely a season and I caught the first 4 episodes of that on the flight to NZ. So what did I get upto this week other than watching Fringe or playing ESO? Nothing other than trying out a couple of early access games on steam. Oh, and buying multiple pairs...

So one of the things I got hooked on while in NZ was "Fringe". The entire series was in amongst the items I obtained when I returned, like the 10-15 other DVD's (inc. "Guardians"), the new coffee machine, 8 books etc. I have just managed to catch up with where I left off in NZ where I saw half of season 3. One unexpected...

5AM start. 7AM Taxis, 10:40 Flight. Watched "Atomic Blonde", "Valerian and the City of a thousand planets" and "Dunkirk". I really liked "Atomic Blonde"

On Monday I went and watched "Bladerunner 2049". On Tuesday I went and explored the Auckland localities of Newmarket and Ponsonby. On Wednesday I went into the CBD and wandered a little as a farewell.

So Monday I went off and explored "Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life", a local aquarium. There I discovered that I get slightly nauseous in diffused bright blue lighting *facepalm*.

On Wednesday, I went to Mangere Mountain which was the site of a Maori "Pa" (ie Stronghold). It's another dormant volcano (Auckland sits over 20 of them), one which has three Caldera two with tholoids...

So I only wandered about Greater Auckland on Monday, Tuesday and Friday, having read or watched anime for the other days. On Monday I went and watched "Thor: Ragnarok", I was quite amused by the use of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" Music in it. On Tuesday I went back to wander in the CBD. I bought 5 enamelled shot glasses while wandering all around...

So last Sunday I got settled in and then walked down the road looking at and taking photographs of road construction. Then I did a lot of reading. On Monday I took a bus to a large shopping centre/mall and bought a lightweight jacket. I also just wandered about and took several more photos of roads. Upon return to my Aunts I read books...

So I spent the first couple of days in a hotel simply because I flew in at hell o'clock in the morning on a week day and didn't want to cause my relatives issues. I organised a local mobile connection and broadband, then strolled around the CBD looking at the differences between Perth and Auckland. There are a lot of them. While it...
