Unboxing Breath Of The Wild Master Edtion

So back when the Master Edition was up for pre-order, I ordered it. I shot a video of myself unboxing it because why the heck not. This was and still is my first and only Switch game. I still haven't gotten a Switch...waiting this Winter, I think they might make some sort of bundle deal for Christmas. Maybe bundle a game with the system or something. I was hoping they'd make a Zelda edition console but since they're selling console "skins" to put on the consoles...I doubt they're going to make limited edition consoles. Shame.


And with that, I'm all caught up on my video backlog. No more videos...I haven't been getting any food hauls, just random foods...usually holidays are when you end up getting a lot of limited edition foods. I'm thinking about doing a summer food haul if I can get enough weird foods together.

Candysan "Moe" Treats

Speaking of Candysan, I got a package of "Moe" themed treats from them a while back and shot a video of it...and never put it up on here. So here it is!

A little info on "Moe". Moe is a slang term that basically means strong feelings of attraction to characters in anime/manga/video games. Moe can also be used in the sense of sexual attraction. Which is what these packages are trying to provoke in people.

As I say in the video, I'm not into the sexual side of Moe stuff. I'm transgender and gay which means I'm into men not women. So this stuff doesn't "excite" me like it's meant to. It's made for male consumers, not female (unless your gay) and straight males at that. I just think Moe stuff is super cute.

If you want to learn more about Moe I suggest Googling it lol.


Enjoy.

Iceberg Curry and an Update

So awhile ago I got a package from Candysan that had a box of Iceberg Curry in it. I was holding off on eating it while I did my diet but now that I've stopped, I'm eating as much of the Japanese snacks as I can since I'll be going back on a diet after I talk to my GI specialist and nutritionist.

Now about that update. Sorry I haven't posted anything...my computer is sucking up all my time lol. I've also been busy helping my parents out around the house. I have quite a few videos waiting to be put on here...including holiday ones...urg. Better late then never? I'll try to remind myself to post more on here...

Anyways I thought I'd comment on the curry.






Now I know how it looks but, don't judge a book by it's cover. Literally since it's supposed to look like this.


Yeah...

So since I can't read Japanese and the site didn't have much info on this, I'll just copy and paste the info they do give.

"This curry comes straight from Hokkaido in northern Japan. This combination of blue and white curries reproduces the ice of northern Japan in winter. The color of the curry is obtained from natural ingredients. This is the only natural blue curry in the world, and Candysan is the first official partner of the manufacturer to sell it outside Japan."

"This curry with fruit is not sweet. It remains spicy with a good curry taste. Adding fruit sweetens the dish a little, giving it a fruity aftertaste and a delicate fragrance. Japanese curry with fruit is known to be generous and use good quality ingredients."

I'll be grading this on texture, taste, smell and appearance.

I should note that the box came with two packets. One the blue, was the curry "sauce" the other; the white; was a thin and watery cream sauce with chicken in it.

Appearance - F

As you can see from my picture and the picture on the box, the appearance is way off. The box curry looks thick but fluffy, rich and creamy and the color is much brighter. The real curry is thin and off color.The actual curry part was thicker then the chicken sauce but not as thick as the box makes you think. The white sauce was also having issues with separation. As you can see in my picture some of the oil was floating to the top.

Smell - C

"Delicate fragrance" Another lie. It smelled like packaged curry sauce...nothing new.

Taste - B

This is where the curry wins honestly. The taste is great. It's spicy but not OMFG MY MOUTH IS ON FIRE like most curry's that are labeled as "spicy" are. I'd say if normal spicy curry is a spice level 5, and curry they feed to kids is a 1, this curry is a 2.5 or possibly a 3. It was hot enough to tingle my mouth but not burn it like most spicy food does. Though I have no doubt I'll have heartburn later.

Anyways the taste. It's spicy, you can taste the curry and spices they used, but it has an undernote of sweetness that I've never really had in a curry. Odd since most Japanese curry is sweet. But where other curry hints at sweetness, this one it really stands out. It's not like a candy sweetness...it's like a savory sweetness. Like you might get from a BBQ sauce. It's delightful.

Texture - D

The texture isn't very good. The blue curry is like most instant curry, not thick but not thin. Average but the chicken white sauce is horrible. Very runny and watery. When I first poured it out it splashed all over the place. The taste is creamy though.

So overall this is a somewhat average instant curry with an interesting sweetness to it. If your into curry I'd say go for it. More so if you can't handle spice like me. You can find the curry on Candysan and it's currently on sale (I'm not being paid by them FYI...wish I was!). So now might be a good time to try it.

Of Candy Kits and Computers

Been fairly busy this month. I finally saved up enough money to buy my computer parts for my new PC, I'll leave the specs down at the bottom. I didn't buy everything though. I still need a new monitor, keyboard and mouse but those can be bought after awhile...I just wanted to get the basic stuff I needed as this computer is just...a clunker. I don't know how it's still running honestly.

Besides that I made a video about some Japanese candy kits I got...Poppin' Cookin' ones. I've always wanted to try them but import fees were insane...well now I can try them because my local Asian market got a bunch of them in! Yay :3

Let's see...oh and I'll have to hold off on making those kits for a month or two...I'm currently on a strict elimination diet which is NOT fun.

Other then that I've been working on taking pictures of my game collection as it stands now and trying to make progress with my new game room. It's slow going. I've really only carried stuff from my bedroom into the game room honestly...I need to do a lot to that room but other things keep getting in the way.

Things to do for game room:

- Paint
- Figure out shelving
- Get light fixtures
- Put plugin covers on
- Figure out how to block the sun
- Figure out heating/cooling
- Get a TV
- Get a comfortable chair
- Start moving games/consoles in

All of these things need to be done in the order they are on the list. Like, I have to have my shelves built before I put my games on them, and I need the room heated because it gets cold in there and I don't want my games in a cold room...and I also need to figure out how to make that horrible smell go away...the paint on the walls now stinks to high heaven...I'm hoping a new layer of different paint will get rid of the stink.

Anyways enough of that, here's the video of the kits and my PC specs.

Hope you enjoy it.

Working out the backlog

I have four more videos to show off, two I'm going to show off right now. The other two are actually one but I had to split it up because it was a long video. These two were shot before Christmas.

First up is my annual Bath and Body Works haul video...I always go to B&BW before Christmas, so many lovely scents.


Second up is a Goodwill haul video, they had a few holiday related items I wanted to show off. It was also the last thrift store haul of 2016.


I hope you enjoy them. I plan on uploading the other two videos soon if I can get Youtube to work with me on this...stupid videos.
