FFCC:Shopping (攻略本とポーションが必要に)

Potion will be on sale on 23rd Oct 2007 to commemorate the 7-year anniversary of FFVII and to boost Suntory’s softdrink revenue (Square Enix’s royalty revenue too?). (@∀@;)

What better way to ensure the success of the drink manufacturer’s marketing campaign than the good old TV commercial?

… …I can’t believe Zack left the Buster Sword outside the convenience store.

I wonder how the Potion tastes like? Even though I know it’s basically made up of water, sugar and colouring… and that it raises my sugar  level rather than HP (HP↓)… OTL

 

With the yummy-licious pictures of Sephiroth, Zack, Cloud and other FF7 characters plastered onto the cans, these cans are worth collecting! 16 of them in all! Any self-respecting FF7 fan would gladly suffer diabetes for their favourite characters, no?

I gladly burnt a hole in my wallet, again. This time, giving a part of my hard-earned income to Kinokuniya. I bought the last ‘Crisis Core FF7 Ultimania’ strategy guidebook in the store, ‘The Boy’ by Germaine Greer, ‘Japanese Comickers 2’ artbook, 2 B’s Log monthly comic and ‘メイド・イン・王子’, a BL comic which I regretted buying (I don’t like shota). Total: SGD $170++

And there’s alot of books in my amazon.jp shopping cart waiting to be bought… (@Д@;)

Status: Intercultural insight with a Paki senior

Today is the day where I’m on an engagement with a Pakistani senior in the distant industrial suburb of Jurong east. God, he assured me that there would be a shuttle bus waiting at the train station to ferry humans to the desolate IMM building in the early morning. And he advised us to meet at MacDonald’s at 8.30 am sharp otherwise the very particular client would particularly hit the ceiling for being late.

The client can make a hole in the ceiling as I had no choice but to make my way to IMM on foot, with a laptop computer in tow. An IMM shuttle bus drove by, on its butt, in large orange letters wrote ‘Free Shuttle Service: 10am-10pm’. Thanks a million.

It was 9am when I reached MacDonald’s and there they were, the Pakistani senior and a fellow assistant 10. The Pakistani senior had a half eaten McMuffin in his hand while speaking to the assistant 10. I dumped my laptop on the ground and unapologetically apologised for my lateness. He said no problem and said he’s a 10 am person just that the manager would give him a morning call to check up on him.  

Just like Borat, he looks funny(as in odd) and smells funny(as in weird). But I can never imagine he could talk funny(as in humour) too!

At the client’s, while we little assistant 10’s are busy with our tasks, the Pakistani senior had a phone call from the manager. We nearly fell off our chairs when he assured the manager most of the tests are done. For the love of god and all other divine beings, I was still struggling to calculate the sample size and awaiting the accountant to extract the information. He told me to economise on time after seeing that the tests are mostly not done. My fellow assistant 10 and I were speechless.

At lunch, he started talking about how boring the DT night out at Zouk was. He’s puzzled by the locals’ sense of fun. The grub was substandard and inadequate, he can’t booze because he’s Muslim and there’s no one interesting to talk to because they’re quietly getting themselves drunk. That’s totally unlike in the US where the drunks just let everything loose, clothes and all. He’s also puzzled by the locals’ sense of humour. When the DJ asked what the 5 core principles of DT were, everyone laughed. I would laugh too, at them for their poor sense of humour.

Then the DJ asked what’s the most important thing to DT and it begins with the letter ‘I’. No one dared to answer the DJ because probably it’s not in the textbook. So this gungho Pakistani senior went up to the the DJ and the DJ had an arm around him and repeated the question again. Of course the correct answer would be ‘Integrity‘, like duh. But this Paki…oooh, one can never guess that Pakis can be a hilarious lot… he grabbed the mic and said with full confidence. “It’s ‘Insomnia’ !”

No one at the party laughed.

Oh my god, I was slapping the table when he told this to us. I mean, that’s what I call witticism man!!! No word can be more right than ‘Insomnia’ ! Without insomnia, audits cannot be finished on time. Without insomnia, the time budget would have burst all the time.

Between mouthfuls of briyani, he told us that he had a cook and 3 cars back in Pakistan and how lazy and fat the women are in his family. The Bellucci voluptuousness is fine but when he meant fat, it’s really fatass fat. His theory is that in Muslim law, the punishment for an adulterous married person is beheading. That’s why the married woman has no worries of losing their spouse and could get as fat as she wants since her husband does not wish to risk losing his head. He also complains of the ‘crazy’ mullahs that ban literary works of Rumi and other romantic poets and how a religion is lost through fear. People follow all the rituals because they’re afraid of punishment. But when the enormous fear is removed, say when the mullahs turn to hippies, the people may find themselves quite lost after being ingrained to the years of following meaningless rituals. Fear of punishment was the reason why they keep to the rules. And now that the fear is gone, what reason can they find to give meaning to the things that they’re supposed to do?

But this Pakistani senior says he still chose to bang his head on the ground 5 times a day anyway(performing the daily prayers, salat).

FFCC: OST (素敵110%)

Let’s go get the long-awaited Final Fantasy Crisis Core OST! わん!わん!vvv

Finally!!! It’s here!!!

I don’t have to run the UMD to listen to the music anymore. Thanks to Godai, I finally got my hands on the OST!!!

There’s not one track that’s made me want to FFWD or skip to the next track. (which I’d usually do for any album) Takeharu Ishimoto did an excellent job in re-arranging and re-interpreting some of Nobuo Uematsu’s works such as ‘Those who Fight Further’ and ‘The Turks’ Theme’. However, the only downer was in his handling of the ‘One Winged Angel’ march. It felt like the angel could hardly fly with the slow and elephantine chorus.

I really loved the richness of the music with the use of electric guitar, violin, piano and classic guitar. The melodies strike a chord in the heartstrings. From the adrenaline pumping ‘Combat’ to the  carefree ‘Wandering on a Sunny Afternoon’ to the melancholic Crisis Core theme, ‘Successor’.

I could feel my heart break when I listened to ‘The Price of Freedom’, a moving piece where the mournful strains of the violin is accompanied by the lonely strumming of guitar. I could imagine this would be the music when Zack dies after saving Cloud. It’s so sad to listen that I’m not motivated to finish the game… I don’t want to see my doggie die so tragically!!!

JETに行きたいのに、ダメかな?

ダメか?だ・め・か?????? うぇ~~ん

I was looking forward to applying for the Japan Exchange and Teaching(JET) Program when I read the eligibility list:

1. You must be a Singaporean, not just Permanent resident. (F**k!!!)

2. You must apply to the Japanese embassy in your country of origin. (F**k!!!The embassy’s in Kuala Lumpur?!) 

3. Not all participating countries in the list are recruiting for the JET Program this year. (F*****k!)

I’m a Malaysian with Singaporean permanent residency and I checked the Japanese Embassy of Malaysia website. Nothing on JET.

ちっくしょ! あたまキタYO!

FFCC:Buster Sword Pass!(セフィFCも入った)

I enjoyed these 2 days of pounding on my PSP after neglecting it for almost a week.

There’s a few funny stuff happening to Zack although the chapter’s pretty heart-rending with Angeal and Genesis’ deaths. *sob sob* 

Zack(after the end of the chapter) fought Genesis clones with a beach umbrella, wearing only a pair of bermudas. What amazed me was when he entered DMW mode ‘Hard rush’, the parasol was stuck to his bare back when he was punching and kicking the enemies furiously. Hmm… another quality adhesive product by Shinra company.

Also, Zack’s finally a member in the elusive and exclusive Sephiroth Rare Fanclub.

It took me a day to explore every nook and cranny of 8th Street until I gave up and sent Zack to the Slums to sniff out the uniformed lady. By god, the good dog did find her! She was hiding behind the igloo in the children’s sandbox and Zack had to endure the 3 quiz questions on Sephiroth before being admitted into the Rare Fanclub. And the 1st email from the mysterious fanclub was about Shinra shampoo which Sephiroth uses for his long silky hair. The haircare product comes in 13 frangrances such as rose, vanilla… sniff sniff haa haa (´Д`) セフィがいい香りにするよ~ハァハァ(変態)

Zack heads to the church to meet Aerith, only to find Tseng the Turk telling him that Aerith’s not in. Zack asks:”What’s your relationship with her?”

Tseng:”Very complex relationship. What’s she to you?”

Zack:”Nothing.”

Tseng:”Nothing for me too.”

What’s the relationship between Aerith and Tseng?!!

Anyway, they set off for Modeoheim only to have their helicopter crashing into the nearby icy mountains in flames. It is here where Zack meets Cloud!!!Aa~~ATSUIiii!!!haahaa

The team came upon an abandoned mako reactor which has a tunnel leading to a ghost town. Zack had to do evade the eyes of the Genesis clones that are guarding the area and make his way to the tunnel. When he’s seen by the patrolling clones, my poor doggie will get tossed onto a pile of snow before engaging into battle mode with the clones.Oof!

And when his body temperature reaches below normal range, Zack has to do his favourite activity-squats.

Zack reaches the reactor within and sees Genesis pointing his sword at fat-ass Prof Hollander. Zack intervened and Hollander tried to escape only to get caught by Cloud from behind.Gaaah!!!ホランダ死ね!羨ましいぃ!!!
There are white streaks in Genesis rust red hair and his blue eyes had a greyish tinge. His condition had worsened.
It was a piece of cake in putting Genesis down. I guess I had levelled him up too high at that stage of the game. Genesis quotes some more lines from ‘Loveless’ and then plunges himself into the dark depths of the reactor.

Zack heads to the ghost town where Tseng and Cloud are. At the Modeo baths, he finds them lying on the ground, hurt. Cloud rolls onto his hands and knees…and sits back on his butt… ka,kawaii…MOE!!!

Tseng tells him that Angeal is waiting for him. Before rushing to find Angeal, I let Zack explore the boiler room with the boiler handle he picked up earlier. After switching off the boiler, Zack could then step into the waters to reach for the treasure chest and an item hidden in the boiler.

Equipped and ready, Zack runs to the top of the building where he comes upon Angeal who told Zack that Zack’s job is to fight him. Prof Hollander steps in, saying”Good job, Angeal.”. Hollander reveals that he is the father of Angeal and that Project G actually means Project Gillian, the name of Angeal’s mother. She was impregnated with Jenova cells and gave birth to Genesis and Angeal. Genesis was a failed experiment but Angeal was perfection. Angeal told Zack he is a “perfect…monster.”Then Angeal asked Zack if he remembered the promise to fight the world of suffering. Zack replied, “Yes, but it’s different for Angeal!”. Angeal told him he is suffering and ordered him to demonstrate his beliefs. Then he summoned all the monsters that were created with his genes.
Prof Hollander yelled “It’s irreversible! Even though it’s of the same genes” and tries to stop Angeal but was pushed aside. The monsters rushed towards Zack  and he was prepared to swing his sword, thinking that the monsters were going to attack him. However, they galloped past him and pounced onto Angeal. There was a blinding flash of light and standing before Zack was a mega metallic monster with Angeal’s head, lion’s body, bat wings and a large gaping mouth on its chest.
It slashed Zack’s left cheek and Zack shouted:”Angeal! What happened to honour???”

My poor doggie had to put down its master. (TДT)

After a long hard fight, I see Angeal lying on the floor covered with snow-white feathers. His black hair and cobalt blue eyes had turned a faded grey. Zack looks sadly at him as Angeal told him to take his Buster Sword and not to let go of honour. Zack takes the sword and holds it to his forehead (the same way Angeal did in the earlier part of the game) with trembling hands. Angeal passed away and my poor doggie gazes at the sky, which has begun to rain.

Then the screen turns black and we hear Aerith say:”Although it’s scary, but we’ll be one step closer to the sky if we step out into the upper plate.” She turns to look at Zack and we see our poor doggie CRYING!!! How heartbreaking!!! (TДT)

Aerith walks towards him, knelt behind him and wrapped her arms around him. (I want a hug too…)

Next, we see Zack sitting in the Soldier’s quarters, with longer spikes of hair and gazing at the Buster Sword he’s holding. There’s also a cross scar on his left cheek. He gets up and heads to a room where the recruits are waiting.
On the way, he turns to one of the lower class Soldiers standing in attention, pats him on the shoulder and said “You want to be a 1st class Soldier don’t you? Persevere!”.(I bet the head on my shoulders that this guy is Cloud) Then towards the recruits, he orders them to hold onto their dreams and honour, the same way Angeal had said to him.
Holding up the Buster Sword to the sky and looking at it, he says :”Let’s go.”

End of the chapter.

Then Zack goes on a beach holiday with the Turks at Costa del Sol, wearing nothing except a pair of black bermudas and doing what he loves best- Squats. It’s really amusing when he starts fighting the Genesis clones in divers suits with a beach umbrella. I wish I can see Tseng in a pair of Speedos too…

FFCC: A Mission Accomplished in the Toilet(だから仕事に遅れた)

I had a stomachache when I arrived at the MRT station near my office so heeding the call of nature, I went to the toilet to do a really big business. Our darling senior allowed us to return to the office in the morning to submit our timeshits. So… no hurry for me to reach the office on the dot.(^^)

It’s been ages since I’ve brought my doggie Zack out for a spin in Midgar, smashing pirated Shinra war mecha and obliterating bouncing cacti etc.

There’s one particular mission under the Shinra Company folder which is very tough. My poor doggie died twice in it. He had to hack hopelessly at machines which are impervious to whatever physical attacks Zack is able to carry out. I tried Blizzardga, Firaga, Thundera, Jump, Revolving Attack… nothing worked. I could not even extract one HP out of these blasted machines. Worse, these damn mecha sucks up Zack’s MP(cannot cure!) and AP(cannot dodge!) before delivering HP depleting bombs until I hear my poor doggie scream and fall to the ground.

No other place is more inspiring than the toilet. It is the source of creativity and intellectual  stimulation. A light bulb lit up when I was sitting on the toilet.

I equipped Zack with Graviga(グラビが)materia, a mega-spell that takes out half of the enemy’s HP, and sent him to face the mecha.

Lo and behold, the moment the purplish black orb descended upon the mecha and exploded, 3345 HP was taken out of the mechanic bastards. And all that was needed to finish them off is a swipe of Zack’s sword.

So easy.
