Yotsuba the Explorer


‘Saw this spot under an outdoor sink. Looks like a very good place to let Yotsuba’s curiosity run free. 😉

An explorer must have a souvenir shot. Smile Yotsuba! ^_^


Btw, this pic got 3rd in MyFigureCollection’s Pic of the Day for Mar. 28, 2014


Ramen with Kirino


‘Saw Kotobukiya’s FB post for submission of fan made photos. I found out that I only have 2 Kotobukiya products: a Yotsuba Model Kit and Cu-poche Kirino. Kirino is the practical choice since I don’t have much time to build the kit.

Here’s one of the 2 pics I’ve submitted: Ramen eating Kirino!

The mouth-watering smell of newly cooked ramen. Yum.

A Hero’s Regular Day


As kids (and adults), we’ve seen Sentai heroes in their themed costume glory fighting evil.

Here’s a Sentai hero that is not how you imagined one should be.

An intro from wikipedia before you continue:

“The story revolves around the Tama River area, based mostly in Kawasaki City Kanagawa where battles are fought between the evil organisation Florsheim and the ally of justice Sunred. The twist is that Sunred (referred to most characters familiar with him as simply ‘Red’) is a rough-talking, violent and rude hero while the villains of Florsheim (led by General Vamp) are for the most part polite, conscientious and easy-going.

Despite this, both sides still stay true to their roles, with Florsheim dedicated to destroying Sunred and taking over the world while Sunred battles against them. Other evil organisations and heroes are also mentioned from time to time.

Each episode is divided into various shorts of varying length. Most of the humour comes from the interactions of the characters, especially the main trio of Sunred, his girlfriend Kayoko and General Vamp. Kayoko and Vamp, for example, get along very well and she occasionally consults him about housework or cooking. In contrast, she and Sunred often argue like a long married couple.”

The Pink Flower That Survived


Being into a little Macro photography stuff, I reserved some space on 2 sides of our garage for some mini garden.

Half a year went by, a few (the opposite actually) died on me. Either I really don’t have a green thumb or my dogs and cats are actually vegetarians.

Yes, they tend to eat/destroy/ravage things, from rubber slippers (a pair of pink flip-flops = pink poop), wooden bench and ladder (I think they saw this one on a cartoon show where the characters tend to set traps against the other) to plants (they tend to be more into fruit/vegetable bearing plants but lately even peanut grass).

But here’s a flower that survived. ‘Saved this one when my mother cleared her garden to start anew.

Is it just me or does this looks 3D?

Same Name… Game!


I’ve been using different nicks/watermarks for quite some time now. I realized that it is not helping. It wasn’t easy to google my works (as if someone wants to LOL). So I decided to change most (if not all) of them online galleries to one username: maxtrese

Yotsuba Getting Ready For Summer (Indoor)


It’s a dangerous world outside, every toy knows that (check any Toy Story movie). 😉

But a Yotsuba Summer Phone Strap/Charm obviously must be shot in a pool/beach scene.

Well, here’s what I came up with:

‘Just a little more kiddo.
