Eggs!

Thursday, June 28th, 2007

 Spot the hidden Kitty! Hahaha~

Eggs

So where do you get your own Hello Kitty egg? Simple, from a Hello Kitty chicken! LOL jk sorry I just had to say that XD Please don’t thrown rotten tomatoes at me. Erhm, anyways nice little thing I found on eBay~

Eggs 2Eggs 3

Hello Kitty Egg Mold MOOHAHA! According to them, this ishow it’s done: Boil an egg, remove the shell, put the HOT egg into the mold, put the mold with the egg inside in COLD water for 5-10 mins, take out the egg. And voila! Hello Kitty face egg haha~

This’ll be so fun to poke. :) Pokey pokey. It’s so cute! I’m not sure I’ll be able to eat it though.. Hmm. Have you noticed I’ve been writing a lot about food lately? Heheheh. Anyways, it costs US$6.99 but I forgot if they ship to other countries. I hope they do. :P

The KT4607

Digi Photo Frame 01
At first glance, it looks like an ordinary photo frame—you have your pictures printed and you slide them in, but as the title implies, this is more than that. And of course, I wouldn’t feature it here if it were as simple as that~ ;)

This picture frame is a DIGITAL Photo Frame, and here are the specifications:

  • 7″ TFT Color 16:9 LCD Display
  • Supports JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF & TIFF Files upto 200 Megapixels
  • 170° Viewing Angle
  • 32MB Built-In Memory
  • Expandable Memory Slot for SD/MMC, CF, XD & MS Cards (Memory Card Not Included)
  • Slideshow Feature
  • Multi-Language (English/Spanish)
  • Clock, Alarm & Calendar Features
  • TV Output (NTSC/PAL) (Cable Included)
  • USB Port (Cable Included)
  • Built-In Stand
  • Power: AC Adaptor Included

Side ViewNow this is the part where I say…COOL! Basically, it works like a computer monitor where you can view the stored images in the 7-inch display. This is obviously way better than getting an ordinary photo frame, because you can store a lot of pictures and switch between them real quick.

A lot of good features there. Slideshow feature means, just like the Dreamstudio videos and Powerpoint, it can change the displayed images on its own as long as you set it to do that. I love the clock/calendar feature and that it has a USB port, it’s really very convenient. TV Output means that if you are’t content with the 7″ display, you can actually connect it to your TV sets and display the images there. Hahaha~

Boy do I sound like I’m selling this. Naturally I want this, because it’s really convenient! And you don’t have to put a lot of frames around, as this can already display a lot of images. People will actually stay and watch it too, if the slideshow feature’s on.

I wish it came in other colors though, like black heheheh…

Hello Kitty Popcorn Maker

Tuesday, June 19th, 2007

Because there are so many good movies out today, this could be very relevant. Well, sorta…coz you don’t exactly bring your own homemade popcorn to theaters haha. Anyways~

It’s the KT5230, looks like it might start talking in a robot voice to take your order or something =P Erhm erhm. I love popcorn! Actually I’ve just recently begun to appreciate normal butter-only popcorn, coz I used to demand my cheese flavoring (and plenty of it!). Luckily, this thing comes with a built-in butter well for “quick melting” heheh.

This apparently isn’t available in stores, you can only get it online (not that hard to find) for US$30, it cooks up to 3 quarts of popcorn. AND it’s non-stick! Yes, that makes all the difference for people like me. Apparently they’ve thought of everything, coz once you’re done popping you can just flip it over and use the clear dome-type thing as a serving bowl.

Is there a difference in taste between mocrowave popcorn and the type you really have to pop the old-fashioned way? Like this? I imagine there should be…but maybe it’s not that noticeable. Also maybe there’s a less risk of burning the popcorn, since there’s a motorized stirring rod to keep things moving. In the microwave you can’t overcook for even a few seconds or it’ll taste bad. My brother still eats the burnt ones though heheh, he’s my clean-up guy. Haha~

Oh btw, CONGRATULATIONS to the Dazzling moment winners! Woot~ Especially to Luty who regularly graces my blog with her presence, for getting the honorable mention :)

Guitar Part 2

Saturday, June 16th, 2007

My first ever post in KT Sanctuary was an electric guitar (I had a blurry picture, let me give my super late apology for that haha~) Well I don’t have much time right now, today’s a busy day. But lemme share this for now:

Acoustic Guitar

Nice eh? Well since that first February post when I’ve been contemplating going back to honing my guitar skills (ehem ehem, if you could even call it that) …actually I haven’t done any of that. I hardly even touched my guitars since then. I think it’s safe to say, if anyone asks, that no, I can NOT play the guitar. I’ll go to a corner and cry now.

Oh btw for anyone who’s curious, this is a Fender acoustic guitar with 20 frets, costs 38,000 yen. Sorry I’m really burned out right now, I’ll leave you guys to calculate how much that is in USD. Heheh ^^; Haaaa I promise I’ll come up with a better entry next time. I need a cookie. Or a hug. :(

KT Mushroom!

Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Now this made me laugh!

This is so funny LOL! I don’t know why but I’ve been looking at it for like half an hour and it’s still making me smile. Kitty what happened to yoooou~~?

Yes folks, she’s become a mushroom. LOL. I love how she doesn’t seem to have any shoulders, her tiny arms just seem to sprout from her mushroomy head. Honestly when I saw this I didn’t really think it was Hello Kitty, I literally laughed out loud. Look look haha maybe it’ll make more sense―

Haha. She’s a really low seat. Actually bigger than I imagined when I saw the first pic. Would’ve been funny if she were a squishy little mushroom, like 3 inches or so. LOL. I wonder how much weight this thing can hold, looks more like a toy really. If I saw this in someone’s place I’d probably point and laugh. I’m sorry it just looks so silly and funny! @_@ I’d buy this though! And I still love Kitty hahaha~

Hello Kitty x LaVie G

Tuesday, June 12th, 2007

I’m a little late with this, sorry everyone! Anyways, this is possibly the most talked about Hello Kitty item these past few days. Japan’s NEC made this crystal-studded notebook computer to appeal to the working girls. As some of you may know, Hello Kitty is very popular in Asia even among office-goers. So it was only a matter of time before someone made something like this.

But this is no ordinary KT-themed piece of technology. The design is made of 299 Swarovski crystals forming 4 hearts, and of course, Hello Kitty’s face. And don’t be fooled by it’s appearance, it’s one mean machine too. It runs on Windows Vista Home Premium, has 1GB RAM, 100GB hard disk space, a Wi-Fi adapter and a dual-layer DVD burner, among other things. So office-workers will not only have a cute little gadget, they’ll also have a notebook that can really handle their work. Coolness~

Lavie G is the model of the NEC notebook, so this would be the Hello Kitty edition. Unfortunately this is only available in Japan, but the rest of the world can still get it online for $1,650. In my opinion it’s not all that pricey considering what it is and what it can do. :)

My mom has been saying recently that she wanted to get into golf. Although I can’t really imagine her actually spending time to learn and practice, it could be a good idea so she has a sport at least. I wonder how she’d�like this? A Hello Kitty golf club! This is so awesome heheh.

Now that’s playing in style. According to the site where I got this, the shaft is 33 inches, about normal length for putters, if I’m not mistaken. I don’t know much about golf myself, but my brother does and I just overhear sometimes. Actually I don’t even watch golf games, unless he’s watching and I happen to be there.

I guess golf is one of those sports you just can’t fully appreciate until you play it yourself. But as far as I know, it’s become some sort of status symbol, and the people whom I know play it are REALLY hooked. I wonder what the deal really is, maybe it IS all that. But the clubs are so expensive, and this definitely won’t be an exception. So I’m not sure I could get into this sport even if I wanted to. T_T

Kitty Mint

Monday, June 4th, 2007

Euros

No, not the candy type of mint. I’m talking about a 50 euro coin minted from gold and silver. I would like to get your reaction on this guys, and get your friends’ reactions too maybe. Heheh.

Yes, that is what it looks like, and you read right. Kitty has gone on to the world of grown-ups, she has her own mon-ay~ It’s a collector’s item minted by Monnaire de Paris of France, but it IS real currency. So if anyone will be crazy enough to go to a store and buy something with this, it’ll be honored. BUT it’s worth far more than 50 Euros. It’s worth ¥168,000 or around €1,026 (US$1,376). YIKES. Basically if you pay with it, it’s only gonna pay for €50, but if you sell it, you’ll get its real price as a collector’s item. I guess. Harhar.

Sorry for all the numbers heheh. Well, for most of us this is definitely not something we’d get, still pretty interesting though. According to the news, there’ll be a series of these coins, showing Kitty having the time of her life in different places.

I actually have mixed emotions about this. But I’ll read what you guys have to say first. :)

Hello Kitty Rubik’s Cube

Friday, June 1st, 2007

Rubik's Cube

Aaaah! Okay I just saw this video of someone solving a rubik’s cube one-handed, in under a minute. And now, look what I found! A Hello Kitty Rubik’s cube~

Actually the caption says “Cubic Series” but that’s as far as my limited Japanese can take me. I’m not sure what the other stuff are (well, aside from being cube-like) but the two on the left are definitely Rubik’s cubes. I don’t know how long it’ll take me to solve one, or if I can actually solve one at all. Have any of you finished one? Maybe I should look for one of these, or at least an ordinary one so I can try it.

Anyways, I’m not sure where to get one of these. I like how they didn’t just print Kitty’s face on an ordinary Rubik’s cube. How many other Rubik’s cubes do you know have kitty ears? Heheheh.
