January 2018 Update

Hi everyone! I hope everyone has had a good year so far and are making lots of good goals and plans for this new year. I know I myself have been taking the first few weeks of the new year to think about what I want to accomplish and goals to set.  I am in the process of redesigning my website look and how things are set up for a better viewing experience.  I have a lot of plans this year!

In the next few weeks I have a list of reviews I will be putting up and streams I will be planning. Here are a few of the things I plan on reviewing in the next bit:

Anime:

  1. A place further than the Universe
  2. Sanrio Boys
  3. School Babysitters
  4. Junji Ito Collection
  5. Citrus
  6. Karakai Jozu no Takagi-san

 

Video Games:

  1. Horizon Zero Dawn
  2. Rise of the Tomb Raider
  3. Pokemon Moon

 

Games I am planning to stream:

  1. Life is Strange
  2. The vanishing of Ethan Carter
  3. What remains of Edith Finch
  4. Stardew Valley

 

I am also going to be doing a lot of crafting soon and may do tutorials for various things. I am planning on opening a little shop in the near future and also have a few awesome travel videos and tips and trick videos/articles that I will be working on very soon.

Is there anything you think I should check out or do? Let me know in the comments!

This was the hardest part! The Peking Duck took three days of various prep! He had to hang for several hours so the skin would tighten for crisp! I didn’t have a hook so…I had to improvise. –_– Wouldn’t it be concerning to see this in someone’s house?

You keep the fish whole on new year so your upcoming luck will be whole! This fish was so good! One of my friends ate the eye! >_< Bleck so gross~

I had a lot of fun cooking and serving everyone on Chinese New Year, most of my friends and family who were there never had these dishes so it was fun and educational for everyone. It was nice to share the story of Chinese New Year and the traditions that go with it. I can’t wait till this next year!
