Met [livejournal.com profile] maiyeng for the first time yesterday - I had a wonderful time, thanks for the hospitality =D (Say hi to your mom for me!)

My trip to London was quite alright, however on the way back, I'm glad I came to the train station earlier - because when I got there, I couldn't find my 21:05 train. Waited for 5~10 mins and then realised the announcement board said it was cancelled o[]o; 9it was meant to be a direct route)
Panicked, ran to the rail information and the woman told me to go on which platform and change trains at Woking. So I did that and asked the man that checkked my ticket if I AM meant to change trains and will be able to get home that way.

So then I changed trains and was at the quiet zone, but unfortunately a huge group of turkish students or something came later, they're SO noisy & drunk and it got worse near the end of the journey. I was unfortunately crowded around by them and they left at the same station as I do =_=;
I was so tired and was hoping I can take a nap but can't.

Anyway, I got back home around 11:30pm or so. One of my flatmates probably forgot I was away today and thought I was kidnapped or raped or something because she said she called me, I didn't reply, she texted me, I didn't reply, she facebooked me, I didn't reply 8D;
(Apparently two of my flatmates, one coursemate and another same media schoolmate was there chatting and one of them told me they had just been talking about murders, kidnappers, rape etc. XD;)
My other flatmate thought I was going away for a week as I said 'I'll be away on Saturday but will be back on saturday night' - but it's on the same day right? o_O;
(I'm happy my flatmates are worried for me, though I found it hilarious when I came back home ^^; )

Anyway, I had a great time yesterday =)



Some other random thing - can't believe www.onemanga.com is gonna shut down and remove all their scanlations (Something about scanlations are no longer approved by law or something...) Wuwuwuwu, stupid stupid now how am I gonna get my weekly scanlations of jump? T_T
Oh well...hopefully something will work out....

Rambling on KHR, if Shimon's Blood is Sin and Vongola Primo's blood is Penalty, doesn't that sound like Shimon actually did something sinful and was in fact the one that betrayed Vongola and not the other way around? - Vongola bestows penalty on Shimon then? Hmm....

Hetalia, I can't believe they're getting their own Hitsuji de Oyasumi series (Counting sheep) want want want want...... XD;

That's it for now, work work work T_T

Hi~! *^o^*/ Aww, glad you had a good time, despite all the weirdos. XD; Next time will definitely go sightseeing at the Docklands!
Yes, I will let my mom know. ^^

Ah..., you went through all that when going back? That sucks. =_=; But at least you got home, but to much concerned friends. XD;; Aww, it's so sweet that they were worried about you. ^^

Oh yeah! The whole scanlation war thing. I guess it's because of such sites as onemanga and mangafox that this whole problem came about. Vertical inc has mentioned a 30% drop in manga sales because of such site publishing their English translated manga! Normally they wouldn't mind scanlations as it helps with their sales, but due to these sites popularity and the fact that they came off as some kind of commercial site by advertising themselves openly through ad banners and gaining revenue through ad banners, what they were doing were more illegal. Also, the sites (well in the case of mangafox, not sure about onemanga) poorly monitored what mangas were being uploaded to their site and removing them was just as poor in response. Common sense as well as keep things in order would helped avoid such situation as this. If they were able to write up disclaimers on their websites, then surely they should know the scale of legality that they are dealing with.

Yes! I want Hetalia counting sheep series! *_*

I did indeed - well those weirdos can't be helped, I'll just pray for you and your family to move to a better and nicer place whenever you can in the future =) And yes, next time for sure! ^^ (But no pressure on that)
Thankies ^^

Yeah I did, I think I need some travelling charm - wonder if that kind of things exist? XD; But yeah, my flatmates are so nice to me - they're a wonderful bunch really <3

Scanlation war thing? But yeah, something like that anyway. Well, if they're publishing their 'already translated manga' then that's bad, but the thing is they're not publishing 'their translated manga' but are translated by amature groups - but I guess it makes no difference arguing anyway.
Well, Onemanga is quite efficient than Mangafox if that's what Mangafox is like...

I thought someone had already uploaded them! But I couldn't find them so I guess I was wrong ^^;

I hope so too. We have plans on what to do and it may take a while, but we hope to eventually move.
Next time for sure. ^^

Ah, perhaps? Who knows?
That's cool! ^^

Well, that's what they were calling it. XD;
I'm not sure if they are targeting independent scanlation groups than scanlation hosting sites like onemanga and mangafox. Maybe they are targeting the more popular ones or ones of already licensed manga.
Ah. Mangafox wouldn't really act unless threatened, but even then they would take their time. ^^;;;

Oh no, not yet! XD The first couple of CDs will be out late next month. =3 Looking forward to them!
