Finally, My Master Card Arrives

After waiting for more than a month (40 days, to be exact), I finally get my own Mastercard.

This card was issued by Payoneer for free. Well, not actually free, they will get their payment when you're loading cash to your card for the first time. To get their card, you need to be signed to their affiliate. There are many of them, search for yourself. I myself using Friendfinder to get this one.



The Envelope when it first come.


It's supposed to be arrived 15-20 days from when I signed up, but the long delay made me lost my hope for it. Well, but that's it, The card come, so it's all good. I have no complaint since it's free.



Inside the envelope


From what I read, this card can be filled by other Credit Card, or if you don't have it, you can use Western Union (many bank offer this service) to fill it. And no, I won't load cash to my card soon, since the exchange rate for USD has been crazy lately.

The reason I applied this card is for activating Paypal and to buy things aboard. Before, I used my parent's Visa card to get things I want to buy (I don't have one myself, poor me >.<). As of now, I'm living in separated city, so, borrowing their card is no longer an option for me. That's why I'm looking one that don't need any requirements to apply (you need to have a decent income/ parent's approval to get a Credit Card, which I have none of them. My parents against me having a credit card).

Why do I compare this card with a credit card? Ok, screw this thing. The only thing I need is their "MasterCard" ability. For your information, there's no debit card in my country that support either Visa/Visa Electron/MasterCard. You must have credit card to have the service. So basically, I can't buy anything outside my country unless i have credit card on my hand. On the other hand, this payoneer card is a debit card and it has MasterCard ability, so this thing will make me able to buy things outside my country without having a debit card.

PS: My parents don't know that now I have this card on my hand.... If they read this, then I'm screwed :/me running away~:

Magical Battle Arena Update

And yet more update......

1.05+is out, maybe they do some rebalance. Nothing much to say about that. I'll update this post once I try it out (not now, I'm busy)

More importantly.
The final character will be Nanoha adult ver.


There will also two new mode added, I don't know what it is though. One of them seems to be netplay exclusively for ppl who have pack installed.
Like i said before, this pack will be released in C75, which is planned for December 28-30, 2008. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to get a copy of it on the day of it's release due to my own holiday somewhere. Well, i can always ask my friend to snatch one for me :3 .

Magical Battle Arena - Lyrical Pack Announced

A bit info for Magical Battle Arena
For you who don't know what the hell is this, read my friend's blog
For the upcoming C75, Fly System has announced the release of the pack called "lyrical Pack" for MBA (Thanks for MS for the info). The pack contain new arena/field and 3 additional character from Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha. One of them is confirmed to be Yagami Hayate.


The uber powerful Hayate,I wonder what skill will She have in the game.....


Edit:
Quick update, second character confirmed to be Vita


I feel that it'll be fun to use Vita against Ruru


For the third character... Rumor said it will be Nanoha in her 18 years old version. I don't really know whether this is true or not.

Oh yeah.... anyone know what kind of editor did they use? I kind of want to try it out.


This one...

Disgaea DS... Part two

Sorry that i can't write lately, I'm in the middle of mid semester test >.<

Anyway, about disgaea DS, I already spent a few hours playing it... and as i thought.... nothing changed from the old disgaea, with few add-ons, like prinny commentary


See prinny at the upper monitor? I really love how he talk


and of course, My pleinair <3.



Pleinair, Her lv1 stats, and Her prinny replacement


As you can see, ridiculous speed, great hit, and very decent for all other stats. She's very strong, and the enemy will likely miss a even She is against enemy that's double of her Level....

Which is why i don't use Her... I love Her to be a strong character, but the downside is... Nippon Icchi has made Her too strong to the point that I have no interest on using it due to it's uber powerfulness... I don't really like a game that's too easy to beat.I stopped using Pleinair at her lv 500.... the point which I decided that She's too strong to be used any further



My Pleinair, and my Hourai, an archer, which I currently use.

From My Friend

Yesterday one of my friend is going to Malaysia. He got a scholarship there and he said he will take major in animation & graphic design. When I ask him how much it costs to live there He said it's just as much as Surabaya, so I think it's not really that hard to live there (for most of us Indonesian, living aboard is a pretty expensive thing).

Before He goes there, He give me these items, since He said He don't use it anyway.....


     
The left one is Katsuragi Misato from Evangelion, and the right one is Shidou Haruko from Onegai Twins


Okay, I'm horrible when it comes to taking photo, so spare me from that (and my halogen lamp set is missing, it seems someone throw it away when i was gone... so, I can't use any lighting at all...). As you can see, Katsuragi Misato one is -sorry- an extremely cheap item, He said He got it as bonus when he bought candy in Hongkong (dunno which brand he's talking about), and for Shidou Haruko, He bought it from kotobukiya, it's supposed to be a set of character, though, but He only get that one. I get both for free XD, so I won't give any complaint or whatsoever but Thanks.

As of now, He should have arrived there..... well, good luck for him there, I'm not sure I can contact him anymore though, since it's most likely that He will change his HP number. I myself is still on the holiday break in my hometown. I have no internet connection here, I'm writing this on my friend's PC.
