[Life] Building my Valvrave and filling up my glass cabinet

I finally finished building my Valvrave! So happy and proud that I built this.
I bought a glass cabinet from IKEA to store all my goods, which dad and I spent 1.5 hours assembling Thursday morning.
The 4th tier stores my Pokemon and Doraemon goods. The plushies were from my uncle.
Third tier stores my "memories".  For example the souvenirs I bought when I went to Hokkaido, and the mini piano was a gift for a friend who I had accompanied her vocal performance during high school.
Second tier stores my anime figurines (including Tiger & Bunny, Ao no Exorcist, Hakuouki and Code Geass).
 First tier stores the bigger and more precious pieces.

What Would X Do For Money?

Cosplay as Miku of course!

[Life] PS Vita Mega Pack 16GB

So I decided it was time to upgrade my PS Vita's Memory Card from 4GB to 16GB. I  originally bought the 4GB Memory Card as just a placeholder to let my PS Vita play games and save game data to the Memory Card. After a while though, it became apparent that I would need a bigger Memory Card in order to save downloaded PS Vita games to my device.

PS Vita Mega Pack 16GB
A single game averages between 1GB to 3.5GB each so a 16GB Memory Card will fit about 4 - 8 games.

So I went to my nearest game shop in search of a 16GB Memory Card. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the game shop had run out of 16GB Memory Cards and the only one left was a Mega Pack. What was this Mega Pack?

Well, the PS Vita Mega Pack 16GB is pretty much a games + memory bundle in which you pay a little extra for the Memory Card, but you are given a code to redeem 10 free games from the PlayStation Network Store. The only games I find worth downloading are Little Big Planet PS Vita, Wipeout 2048 and MotorStorm RC. Of course, if you are into the classic or obscure games, you may find the rest entertaining enough. 

Here are the games:
  • Little Big Planet PS Vita
  • Wipeout 2048
  • MotorStorm RC
  • Little Deviants
  • Frobisher Says!
  • Ecolibrium
  • Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters
  • Lemmings
  • Hungry Giraffe
  • The HD Adventures of Rotating Octopus Character
