My birthday was yesterday on the 20th and since I had some incoming packages, I tried to pay the ransom for them to the customs office so that I’d get them home in the morning. ’cause it’s always nice to have packages to open, especially on your birthday. ヽ( ･∀･)ﾉ So I was stalking the tracking all evening on Tuesday to see if they’d sort the packages so that I could expect them on Wednesday morning. No updates. (｡•́︿•̀｡) Went to sleep and woke up at 6:45, still no updates. ~( ´•︵•` )~ I didn’t go down to wait by the front door for the mailman because I wasn’t sure if they’d even try to deliver the packages, because they hadn’t even been sorted in Helsinki. The mailman can come anytime between 7:20 to 9:20 in the morning and it’s not all that fun standing there for nothing… especially since it was, like, -28°C. Nopenopenope. (´-﹏-`；)
Around 10 am I got pretty darn frustrated and complained to the postal service – and they tell me that the mailman HAD attempted to deliver the packages in the morning. And I’m like ???? Σ(ﾟﾛ､ﾟ;) because the tracking hadn’t updated since the 18th for one package and since the 15th for the other. So, it turned out that the postal service’s online tracking wasn’t working YET again!! I don’t even know why I’m surprised anymore, nothing works with them these days. (ーー;) They were all “we’re really sorry” but that didn’t really help… in the end the packages were at the PO around 2 pm, but I only got an update about it at 5 pm ’cause of the damn messed up online tracking, grrr! (*｀へ´*) Because it was really cold, I didn’t feel like walking and hopped in a bus… although, the bus was, like, 10 minutes late and I already froze while waiting for it and uggghh… I feel like my birthday is always the unluckiest day for me, I got a terrible papercut from one cardboard box later that evening, too. 勘弁してくれえぇー！ヽ(○´Д｀)ﾉ Well, the positive side about that whole ordeal was that I was also able to pick up my Amiami order from December while I got the two EMS packages from the PO.
But well, enough about that, and let’s see what was in the boxes! ヾ(@°▽°@)ノ The first photos are awful because it was dark and I only had artificial light at my disposal, sorry about that.
I didn’t feel like taking that many photos since I didn’t have light, so I just redressed Chiika, who I’ve renamed Nanase, and styled her hair ready so that I could take some proper photos the next day.ヾ(｡･ω･｡) After receiving Little Princess Nina with that awful hair, I was really worried for this Chiika… but thankfully her hair was okay! Phew~ ((´∀`;))
Here are the photos that I took today! ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ Starting with the story from the leaflet…
Then I also took a photo of the Tenohira Kominato Haruichi made by Mega House… because Harucchi is cuuute! (•‾⌣‾•)و ̑̑♡ I already have Miyuki and Bakamura, I should finish editing their photos and publish their arrival, ahah…
In terms of stuff that I got, it ended up being a nice birthday! (ﾉ^ヮ^)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧ I’m definitely very happy with little Nanase, she’s super endearing~ ♥ I was already regretting buying her when I got worried about her hair and didn’t think that I’d like her when she arrives if her hair is a terrible mess… but thankfully everything was okay and I love her to bits! (*´ ˘ `*).｡oO ( ♡ ) I already found a buyer for the rest of her outfit, too, so I’m a very happy camper now~
Oh, and the kanji for Nana’s name is 虹星, the first kanji is for “rainbow” and the second for “star”. Her eyes were such an interesting colour that I couldn’t quite make out what exactly it is from the promo photos – I went between light violet and grayish light brown and yellowish light brown… so I think that this particular kanji suits her well. Aaand she’s got such a cheerful smile that it’s bright like starlight, so the second kanji is appropriate, too, lol! ( 〃´艸｀) Sorry, I go a little artistic with my neemo names… kanjis are too much fun when it comes to names!
