Hannibal NBC Series

I have been a huge fan of Thomas Harris's works for ages. So imagine the thrill when I discovered Bryan Fuller directed an artistic, emotionally tormenting series featuring Hannibal and Will Graham. I suppose Hannibal was more famous with Clarice Starling in The Silence of the Lamb. I wasn't particularly into Red Dragon back then but with the series out, I am reading it with big appetite. It's really fun to read it and watch the series simultaneously because the director, Bryan Fuller, is just sooo clever in making this interesting. In the series, they changed the subplot here and there, maybe changing a few genders... lol. Really, Freddie Lounds and Alana Bloom are both male in the book! I love how they added new characters to represent some part/events of the main characters' struggles. It's simply fascinating. 

Though, I must say, this show is definitely NOT for weak stomach. The crime scenes are very, very explicit. I cringed in most of the scenes yet they are somehow... very artistic. It's all morally wrong~ don't judgeeee!!!
I convinced my dad to watch it with me and he was like "This is so gory. I can't. This is not good for your soul." But he still watches it with me because hey, I'm daddy's little girl. *Wink wink* Ok jokes aside. The show is gory (I shit you not. I don't think I can emphasize that enough) I watch the show for the pure... emotionally torment torture and the... soul-crushing relationship between Hannibal Lecter and Will Graham. It's all masochistic. Will Graham... poor sweet neurotic Will... 

Now, let me charm you into becoming a Fannibal by introducing you to the 2 gorgeous main characters.

Hugh Dancy as Will Graham                                                               Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal Lecter

 As you watch the show, you will notice the amount of cannibalistic jokes Hannibal kept dropping. It's so witty that everyone thinks he is kidding. If only somehow would take him seriously, there wouldn't be much of a plot. 
So I was in my university library, happily studying... not really, but anyway browsing through Hannibal fanpage when I came across this. I laughed so hard in the library. Man... I'm just SO BAD. 

OK before I get carried away with more jokes, I will wrap up a quick summary without spoiling too much. 
So Will Graham is a very talented FBI profiler (not really an agent but whatever) who has the ability to empathize so completely with people (meaning he can assume anyone's point of view). His boss uses him to help catch serial killers by becoming them. Then Will started to get a bit neurotic because he has been in the mind of too many bad people. SOOOO Jack Crawford, his boss, decided to introduce him to a psychiatrist, Dr. Hannibal Lecter... the ban of his existence and the sassiest man of the show. So Hannibal is very fascinated by Will's empathy and continues to torture him to see how far he can go. And he does his manipulation so subtly that no one knows any better. Dude, he feeds people to his guests and it's like food porn! (Yes, Food Porn... said the director of the show, Bryan Fuller)

To sum the series up, Hannibal is a sassy dick. Will is a kicked puppy who takes care of stray puppies. 

Be thankful I'm not narrating this in person. I told the summary to a friend today and he said, "Is it supposed to be this funny or ..." Me: "God no! It's really dark. I just have a retarded way of telling the story." Him: "Oh... I thought it was a comedy. I would have wanted to watch it otherwise."

I looove this quote in the show. It's the little thing like this that makes the show awesome. The symbolism! I can go on forever talking about Hannibal. Yes, I even joined its fanpage on Facebook... Hannibalism... listed under religious organization. LOLOLOL. Gotta love the Fannibals' dark humor. 

Seriously, you need to check them out. They have some of the darkest yet hilarious jokes on Hannibal. Disclaimer, I don't own any of the photo/images in this post because it's all from there or Hannibalogy. Check them out. 

 Speaking of... weird tension between Hannibal and Will... They have the most unconventional bromance ever. Literally... Hannibal confuses the heck out of fans. One moment he says he considers Will as a friend, the next... he utterly destroys him.

 LOOOOL Will's face!!! 
Well, he is clearly not amused by Hannibal's witty joke!
 Then there is this...
So Bryan... WILL THEY? OR NOT? The suspense is killing me!
On this note, I will leave you with a beautiful fanvid made by Katrindepp.
So guys! Have I convinced you to watch Hannibal? PLEASE WATCH IT! Sooo delicious that it's a miracle my ovaries are still functioning.
And for the Fannibals who haven't seen the trailer for the second season... how could you not see it yet? 
Here is the gorgeous trailer. Spoiler alerts.

Play Arts Kai Raiden Metal Gear Revengeance

I thought I should blog about my awesome Raiden Play Arts Kai figure from Metal Gear Revengeance. I had wanted this figure for almost 4 months before it was released. I remember stalking all websites for this guy as they were all sold out or overpriced. (note: This is before they re-released). So anyhow, I found it at a reasonably good price and snatched it. The excruciating long wait until the release date + shipping duration was well worthy. This figure officially kicked asses. Check it out. 

I can go on and on about the beautiful details on this figure. I mean look at the armor, it looks sooo real, even though they are all PVC. Amazing.
Raiden came with so many cool accessories. I love the blade, the throwing knives and his sword sheath. 

WHO IS DA BOSS? Come at me, bro!

He comes with his... mask/forehead armor? Basically the front of his hair can pop out. Then you plug this eyeshield into that peg hole. It's kinda funny when you see Raiden without hair when I was interchanging the parts. 
Absolutely smeeexy~ 
Gosh, I love taking photo of Raiden. Every pose he does screams "badass"!!!
I brought Raiden and Nero to a chalet by the lake. Instead of appreciating nature, I was busy drooling after how good Raiden looks. 
BRO HUG!
I don't claim to be a pro photographer but man... these shots are gorgeous. Raiden + nature = EPIC WIN!
Here is a Fabulous Nero with his pink Barbie glasses~ Aww Yis.

I'm so happy to be able to share this post and photos with you guys. Spread the love for Raiden Play Arts Kai yooooo~ Anyway, let me how do you like this figure and the photos in the comments. I look forward to reading them!

Stunning Hotel Fairmont Montebello

Beautiful 5 stars hotel Fairmont Montebello is truly a sight to be awed. It is a fantastic place for family/couple to relax and enjoy what nature has. There are soooo many activities you can do there in the hotel alone! There are indoor/outdoor swimming pools. A cabin for bike rental. A breath-taking lobby to relax and enjoy a casual reading. Horse riding! Private boat yatch...etc. You name them, they have it! I was very fortunate to be able to enjoy 2 days there. It was one of the most beautiful memories I have. 

 This is our hotel room.
 The indoor pool is sooo beautiful on this picture. Too bad when I went there, it was close.
 Fortunately, the outdoor pool is open! We even went to soak in the Jacuzzi after a god swim. 
I went to this little... structure (whose name escapes me) and it was beautifully decorated with hanging plants and stunning flowers. The pictures that we have taken on that spot were marvelous. 

(Note: I don't own the top few photos. They were taken directly from the Fairmont Montebello website. I do own the following photos)
This is by far the largest lobby I have ever seen! It's huuuuuuge. It can probably fit 50 elephants in there no problem!
It's nicely filled with couches and chairs. It's a bit cute and homey when you think about it. It has a very family feel to it... with the dim lighting. You know, a family coaxing on the sofa in front of the fire place.  
This is the diner.

The outside where you can enjoy some yummy BBQ!

Like I said before, the indoor pool was closed... though I enjoyed myself outdoor. The workers were really helpful and charming. 
Yup, you swim next to the river. After a good swim, the best thing to do is to chill on those foldable chairs and watch the river flows. 
I believe this is a private boat yacht. I'm not too certain though. Nevertheless, it's a pretty sight.
 A group of excited family leaving on horse ride. I'm so envious. The horses are really friendly. They let you pet them on their head, neck, side...etc. 
The hotel ground is so vast that you can rent bike and explore every inch of the hotel! 

Well, I truly had a good rest after a relatively stressful year. My advice is that you can find yourself a good deal on some coupon sites that can offer great discounts for high-end places. I have gotten a good deal which includes a trip to the nearby Omega Park and a canoe/kayak by their private mountain lake. It was totally awesome. I would definitely return there when I get a chance.

Attack on Titan

OMG, I can't believe Shingeki no Kyoijin (Attack on Titan) is releasing its anime. I thought it was an underrated manga and this news makes me really happy. Finally, this series will gain exposure. With its magnificent artwork and stunning plot, I'm sure it will attract many new readers/viewers. I'm incredibly happy you guys have no idea. 

Now, you guys must check out the trailer. It is so well done and the music rocks! The atmosphere and tension you feel in the trailer is exactly what you must feel when reading this series. Utter despair and slowly regaining hope. I'm telling you, this manga/anime is fantastic. Coming from a picky shounen manga reader like me, my words gotta count for something. When I said a manga is good, it's very likely to be really good. 

This story is about human civilization being attacked by mysterious giants in the future. These giants cannibalize humans and drove humanity to seek refuge in a small city where they built tall walls of defense. There, humans lived in fear of invasion. Lacking technology we have today, their only way of defending themselves are just using limited fuel tanks to zoom around and blades to cut. One day, a super mega huge giant the height of the wall appeared and destroyed the precious wall that separated humans and those vicious giants. Despair, the humans are driven further into the city's inner walls. But slowly, these walls are being broken down and humanity has nowhere else to hide anymore. It was then, Eren has something unexpected to offer. He was able to become ... Watch the anime. LOL.
