Freezer Satay

Freezer food or TV Dinners are the staple of working individuals decades ago. Also, its the best source of much nutrition for growing potato couches. Not only that, coupled with a microwave oven, its the best solution ever. Look at it this way, if you don't have a girlfriend or a wife and the nearest Clownhouse is 200 metres away, just pop this into the microwave and a few minutes later, you're done.

Alas, we have to wake up to reality as this is not America and busy individuals here do not or have not even heard of TV Dinners, let alone succumb to the notion of eating packed lunches or sushi at their work desk. To us, its akin to sacrificing our lunch hour for the sake of more work. Which, to many, is sacrilege.

Our family has bought some freezer food and
this time, its satay. Normally, with satay, you
need an open fire but here, an oven will do.
Unfortunately, it comes out very dry.

Erm, I am not sure how the ketupat was made but
it looked more like compressed 'normal' rice.

And so, with some sardines,
its time to make the best of it.

The Action Base

I got this Keiko Action Base from Hobby HQ today and at a very good price too. However, because of my scepticism of possible Chinese Made items, I was not very happy to buy it in the first place for I always suspected that this could be copied from either Kotobukiya's Mechanical Base series or Bandai's, famous Gundam stands.

But what do you know. After checking on the Internet, this is the real deal, and is actually an original model! Shame on me for being such a skeptic.

When I first saw the model, it looked very big.
Here you can see how big and bulky it is, when
compared to a 100Plus can.

The reason why it is so big was due to the set of
sprues which has a lot of chunky parts.

What is so impressive is that these parts are quite
detailed. And just look at the example above.

Not only that, the base actually
allows you to recreate it in either
1/144 scale. or... adding a few more parts,
its upgraded to 1/100 scale,
which is bigger

Well, sadly, that is all the time I have for now, so its going to the 'to-do' bin, OK?
Work, work, work...
