Yeah, I still can make purchases even though I'm in Brisbane by using my trusty card here *pats* heh.
Anyways finally got me yummy books from Seven Sea's Strawberry Line along with a few others. As you can see, my family have kindly webcam-ed me the packages while I drooled and whined in front of lappy.
They told me that it's really light, 9 books and it's around 2.2kg as stated in my invoice ... light!? Anyways here's what I got;
Family Complex #1 [Complete], Strawberry Panic! Manga #1, Strawberry Panic! Manga #2, Strawberry Panic! Light Novel #1, Voiceful #1, First Love Sisters aka Hatsu Koi Shimai #1, Kashimashi ~Girl meets Girl~ #4, Kashimashi ~Girl meets Girl~ #5 [End] and Venus Versus Virus #3. Yep.
I didn't want them to open the packages ... even though I had reluctantly uttered that they could lol ... I think they didn't. Oh to explain the two packages, Amazon had shipped the Strawberry Panic! Light Novel first before the other eight books in another shipment and I have totally no idea why they did that ... probably they thought they couldn't get the other titles.
I ordered them on 19th April and the packages came in I think 6th May, I'm not sure lol, I was too busy with my assignments and presentation to blog about it at that time. Until now, I'm still busy but ... I've just gotta share my goodies around!!! LOL. The total order's US$85.04, I'm forgot what the conversion rate was, well to play safe, I'll just assume it to be US1 = S$1.40.
So it's S$119.056 and the shipping charges was S$34.31 so the total amount's S$153.366. Basically on average each volume costed me, divided by 9 = S$17.04 ... Whoa that was slightly cheaper than I expected haha. I wonder how much Kinokuniya sells Strawberry Panic! in Singapore or did they even imported them in the first place!? LoL ... anyone knows? Hm, now I can use my nuffnang earnings to pay those mangas [Enough to only pay for the mangas lol] XD, I'm still eyeing for the Kannazuki no Miko Manga by TokyoPop. I know #1 was released but I'm thinking of purchasing #2 together and probably some other releases by Seven Seas in a few months time. Hopefully I get to earn more money in the next few months and buy more in the future ...
So ... get clicking on the ads around if you have not ... haha, help me earn the moolah!!! XD, sounds so ... despo here but ... a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do to get her fix of manga lol.
Anyways, I'm really happy ... heh heh heh I can't wait to ... go home and read them!!! I'll probably just spend my summer holidays in Singapore, reading manga and being an useless unemployed slacker haha. I think I would had earned that right ... the courses I've signed up for the next semester is going to be hell, all Level 3 courses o_o.
Sigh, I've still got a research proposal and a group report to go ... then it's exams in June, o_o I'm kinda nervous because it's been a while since I sat for an exam lol. It's a pretty good semester, I've made some friends, broaden my horizons in a small way and the courses were fun ... even though some of them made me want to pull my hair out, bash the walls and scream ... I reckon what I've learnt will be useful to be in the future. Or else. Haha.
I would like to end this with a foody mood;
The pasta I made a while ago ... and the dinner I had tonight.
