Am I Enjoying Things Much Better?

Who did ever expect that this holiday wouldn’t be as boring as usual? Well, “boring” here refers to condition when there isn’t much to do. So back to the main topic, although I don’t go on any excursion with my relatives, I figure out that spending more time at home isn’t always boring. Perhaps it’s because I have planned some activities for these days? Not really certain, but unlike usual, these days I’m studying matematika for the coming try outs and most importantly, national exams. You know what—odd for me to do such thing on holidays, since I never did it before :P!

I also spend my time at home by playing Harvest Moon—with my sister, of course. Seems like we both have a similar taste for video games. Before downloading HM, she had asked for Plants vs Zombies from her friend and we were busy with it for days. But it didn’t last so long since my sister—whom I secretly address as “game master” for her skill in finishing a game before me—reached the last stage only in a number of days! After beating the final boss, she began to wonder if only there’s a harder game for this holiday… I also find it boring to play the same game over and over. So I totally agree with her assumption about playing Pokémon and HM, making me eager to find the solution.

That’s the story behind having another game for holiday. Speaking of Pokémon, recently we just downloaded Pokémon Emerald. Once again, many thanks to Visual Boy Advance that we can play our favourite game :D!

Beside playing those games, we also learned to make anime papercrafts. My sister had finished making one and is half-done with the second, while I’m still in the first template :P… In return for not joining my relatives’ trip, I spend most of the holiday with my family. We went to the mall, and of course, bookstore!

I just realized that this holiday enchants me more than usual. I wonder if I’m enjoying things much better ;)? Anyway, happy new year 2013, readers!


Games For Holiday

I woke up so early this morning and helped my dad in making onde, a kind of meatball-like food made from flour. Onde is usually served during Indonesian Mother’s Day, which is on 22nd December. Yes, it’s supposed to be tomorrow, but for some reason we serve them today. Actually I didn’t help much, because I only made four. I did it by shaping coloured flour into my family’s Chinese zodiac :P. It took quite a while to make one as I had to carve its face, but it’s fun!

Oh yes, something good happened last Monday—I finally downloaded Harvest Moon game on my PC! Previously I had been wondering, “How difficult it is to find its file on the web…” I used to reckon that the suitable version of such game is required if we want to play it on PC. I just knew it from Wilson that day; we need to have a suitable program to play the game. When I opened it for the first time, it turned out that VBA (the name of that program) enables us to access GBA games. This is a good news to me and my sister—at least we have some entertainment for this holiday ;).

By the way, yesterday was our report day. I’m really grateful to achieve the first rank for this semester :D. Hope all of us can get better grades on the coming semester!
