Nile Feldspath Rucksack

Recently, I commuted to work in the rain as Japan was hit by two typhoons, Vongfong and Phanfone, recently. After spending a few days walking in the rain, I realised that the rain in Japan falls differently than that in Singapore. It’s hard to describe, but if I had to, I would describe the difference as being more dense, yet less heavy, and also the rain here makes the clothes and what ever…

After the Storm

Last night, Typhoon Vongfong passed over Tokyo. In Tokyo, it was not as eventful as Phanfone. Throughout most of the day, it was overcast, with the occasional sporadic rain and winds. It only started to rain during sunset, which meant that it was time to pull out the raincoat on the way home.

I thought it would be an interesting experience to walk back home in the rain, and take some pictures…

Life in Tokyo

An entry after a long time. Much in life has changed since the last post and I have deiced to put aside administrative tasks for the night to pen down a post before I lose the thoughts and feelings that I have now.

I guess the major change in life is giving up almost everything back in comfy Singapore and moving to Tokyo, Japan to work and live. Changing jobs is an exciting experience, even more…

Hallo :) . I sow your tutorial how to repair a broken Dollfie Dream torso joint and I would like to ask, if there's any possibility that you can do the same thing with my doll broken joint. I don't have tools to do it myself. I could sent you the broken parts (they look exactly the same as yours were) and pay you for materials and a fee for your trouble of course. Thank you :)



Sorry for the late reply. I read your mail early in the morning, right when I woke up, and then went off to brush my teeth and forgot all about it.

In any case, I would not recommend my technique. It’s actually more frustration because I realised after prolonged use the gorilla pod legs actually wear off quite fast and I have yet to find a gorilla pod that can sustain the weight of the upper frame. That is to say, at the start, everything is good, but over time the strain on the joints will be too much.

I would recommend 2 choices:

1) Get a DD3 frame

2) Wait for the release of Culture Japan’s Smartdolls which will have a superior internal frame; I’ve seen and played around with the frame and the quality is great:

(see pic!)

My personal recommendation is to wait for the Smartdoll frame and use it.
