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.

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 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.


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'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.

PC Part Picker List:

Hope you enjoy it.

All the stuff I got for Christmas/Hanukkah

Finally got around to uploading those here they are.

Not much to say on this other then it's just videos showing off all the stuff I bought for myself and stuff given to me during the holidays...pretty damn late but eh. I'm lazy like that!

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.

Happy New Years

So another year has passed. One of the worst in my mind. Second only to the year I turned thirteen. That was the worst year. Hopefully 2017 will be better but with Trump in office...I have my doubts. Maybe celebrities will stop dying by the handful...

Anyways like last year I'm going to take a shot at making resolutions...maybe I'll stick to them?

Last years resolutions were this:

1. Eat healthier/lose weight
2. Exercise
3. Learn to drive
4. Work on getting GED
5. Learn how to "adult"

And I did none of them. I did actually make some slight progress on the exercise by buying a I can ride to the store or just around the lake...easier then walking. And because of my fear of driving...I think it might be the only way I'm going to get out of the house anytime soon.

So my resolutions for this new year? I'm going to have two different category's...important and not important.


1. Try to go on elimination diet to figure out what makes me sick (this means at least 2 months)
2. Ride my bike (probably going to wait till Spring at least...too cold otherwise)
3. GET A NEW COMPUTER (it's important enough to me damn it)
4. Learn how to "adult" (there's a group for Autistic people to learn life skills...I think I'm going to try my hand at joining them for this new year)

I'm going to give up on the GED and driving shit...I have 0 interest in that and I'm just not ready for it. I need to go on an elimination diet (literally eliminating EVERYTHING I eat and slowly adding them back in one by one till I figure out what makes me sick.) because I get horrible stomach pain after I eat. I need a new computer because the one I'm using is just not cutting it, it's super old and I can't play games on it. I'm a bit hopeful about the group...learning life skills is something I need to do.

Not important (but important enough that I want to try to do them):

1. Set up a dedicated retro gaming area and try to spend a few hours a week playing old games (I don't play my games and this is a bit annoying because I love the games so much!)
2. Invest in some good shelves for my collections (DVDs and games)
3. Put my crappy games into storage
4. Start selling on eBay (At least 1 game a week!)
5. Possibly get some UGCs or at least end labels for N64 carts

I've totally run out of room in my bedroom (where I keep all of my games and other collections) so I need more room. Right now my dad is turning my unused porch into an enclosed area I can use for stuff like my games and what not. I'm going to turn that room into a game room for my older games. So I'll have a comfortable place to sit down for a few hours and play. That will free up more space in my bedroom for storing my DVDs and such. And if I put my crappy games I never play and don't want to display into storage...that frees up more room for games! I really need to sell games on eBay to fund my collection this summer...hunting at yard sales and so on. And it would help pay for a new PC. The UGCs/end labels would just be if I have some extra money that I want to treat myself to something...I don't expect to get them this year.

It's pretty hard to stick to resolutions when you have no inner drive or...something. Stuff that normal people have to push them to complete goals and so on...I don't have that. I've never had that...kind of annoying.

Anyways I have two videos for you guys.

This was a haul from World Market.

And this was a haul from Daiso.

They're both in the shorter style, so hopefully people will watch them all the way through...

And A Merry Christmas To All!

Since I'm sitting on quite a few videos now, here's another video. This is my last "long" styled one...the rest are going to be around 10 I can see if people enjoy that more or not. I'm thinking you will because I'll be less likely to ramble off or start ranting.

This is a mix of Wal-Mart, Dollar Tree and Cyber Monday items (shows you how long ago I shot this.). Oh and Loot Crate did finally send the Invader crate out...AFTER I filmed this lol...

And I meant to upload this before it hit 12...but I fell asleep.

My Hanukkah decorations...what few of them I have. This was shot on the first night of course...which is why I wanted to post it earlier lol. Happy second night of Hanukkah everyone, and a Merry Christmas to everyone else.
