Like I did around the same time last year, I'll be flying out of Sarawak for my 2-week-plus vacation starting today (28 February) and will be back on 16 March. ^^ However, unlike my trip to Thailand and Singapore last year, I have planned beforehand to not do any updating on my blog during those two weeks and just concentrate on enjoying my leave. ^^
Looking back, I did my updating of the blog and scheduling of postings in the evenings during my trip last year, and even though it was fun documenting my travel experiences during the trip itself, the logistics of processing the photos, uploading them, searching for information and writing up the postings were a bit tiring, especially when all the work had to be done when I was already very tired after a whole day of walking around. ^^;
Traveling is fun, blogging is fun, but I'll have to compromise one for the other just so I don't have anything on my to-do list when I plan to go to sleep at the end of the day. ^^
Yes, at my present age, sleep is very important. ^^;
I'll still be accessing the Internet during the two-week period for work-related matters, but I'll not be writing anything for my blog during that time. Instead, I'll be a lurker on my own blog. ^^
Random postings related to my travel experience contributed over ten postings to the total number in March last year. Without any plan to publish any posting for the upcoming two weeks, all related numbers are going to plummet for sure this year. ^^;
For work-related matters, I have returned to Jakarta, almost four months after my first visit to the city. ^^

So far February has been a challenging but very interesting month for me in terms of my work. ^^ Plenty of stuff to do, and I have burned tons of midnight oils to make sure all the right preparation was completed. However, I was able to travel to different places, both locally in Kuching and now outside Malaysia to perform my duties. ^^ The experience and exposure has been greatly enjoyable and valuable to me. ^^
It's always not a good thing to be talking about fixing up model kits, since that automatically means that something has broken in the first place. ^^;
Getting the kit fixed in the end is the payoff, and even though the experience gained from the work can be considered a side benefit, the same cannot be said about the shock and regret that I felt the moment when the kit was broken. ^^; Even for kits that I did fix in the past, like HGUC Gundam RX-78-2, Zaku III and Master Grade Zaku II, I always hoped I had never broken them to begin with. ^^;
Then again, with more tools and materials obtained over the years, I'm glad that I have more options in fixing up my model kits now so I don't feel too depressed everytime I broke something. ^^;
The HGUC Sinanju I assembled in mid November 2010 has been without its backpack for a few days now ...
... after I broke the binder connector of its left wing. ^^;
I suppose the peg has become quite stiff after it was put in a fixed pose on my office desk for a long time. When I was adjusting another pose for it recently, the binder connector just snapped when I tried to move it with a little extra force. ^^;
Even now, I can still remember the "No~~~" in my head when the peg snapped. XD
After the introduction, this posting will focus on the handful of option parts included in Play Arts Kai Meryl Silverburgh and more images of the figure to examine the craftsmanship put in for her design and production. ^^
