One of the major taskings was the Army Open House 2007, which officially ended on Monday this week. I was one of the presenters, and it wasn't easy maintaining a smile for 5 continous days and explaining the same thing over and over again. But I did get to meet interesting people, and also some old friends who paid me a visit. Mabel also got the chance to step into the place I work in. She made me breakfast, and thankfully for her I did not need to work on an empty stomach.She also got her chance to fire the SAR 21 using live rounds, and also got to see the various urban operation demonstrations which I didn't have the chance to go even though I was there. Most of the time I'm giving out souvenirs or explaining about my systems. I would have loved to be walking around and enjoying myself in bermudas and sandals, but being part of the working committee does have its perks, such as having my own parking lot. :)
Kamen Rider Den-O is making a huge wave in Japanese culture as well. I've never seen a rider series parodied and referenced in so many other shows, and the popularity of this show is rising. Not surprising actually. This series has also became my fave Kamen Rider series in recently years, over taking Hibiki, Blade and Kabuto. As much as I detested the suit designs previously, I'm getting to love them now due to the show. The light hearted show has a lot of hillarious moments, and kudos to the stunt actors and Ryoutaro who were able to pull of the different personalities of the various imagins. Check out this scene here, where the 3 other imagins return to join Momotaros in combat. Gotta love the way Momo reacts, and the way he panics when the others appear on his body. "My face is peeling!" Hahaha! A new form is on the way, and from the first pics I felt that the suit is less than attractive, but in a similar way like the other suits, I'm pretty sure I'll grow to accept it.
