Yay! We finished the second episode after much pain…. ^_^
No thanks to iMovie ’08 *mutters*. <_<; This episode is proof that there are moments where Apple just made something so insanely difficult to use. I was looking forward to the editing process but in the end, Plum had to do it again. Still, she did do an excellent job.

It’s always a nice thing. Even if I wonder whether or not, Plum and I might get potentially sued for this. We don’t mean any harm but with the litigious nature of today… I thought we should put this out there.
It’s not about kimonos or anything Japanese today. It’s really about Singapore and in a sense, you could say that this is the other side of PnB which is the gaijin experience.
We started doing the video for the lulz but soon found that we had a legitimate reason on our hands. Plum and I grew up on Singaporean tv and we remembered ‘the glory days’ of when we loved whatever they served us – local or otherwise. We particularly enjoyed the local productions because most of the time, they were quite good.
However, most of it is less than stellar nowadays… or rather, started when I became a teenager. This problem just seemed exacerbated by the advent of the internet and with youtube, it just put the final nail in the coffin. And let’s not forget cable tv which totally kills local Singaporean programming.
That’s not to say that Singaporean tv blows. They have some great fare… so this is our attempt to sort of sieve through what we like and what we don’t like about local productions. Hopefully, we’ll learn more about the industry to make more informed reviews… and also up the standard of our own editing (though Plum and I aren’t professionals so it’s going to take us a while to figure out how to even use iMovie properly >_<;)
So, what happens when 2 Singaporean girls get bored and have a webcam and a mike… well, they load xinmsn.com, log their thoughts… and make jokes and bad puns about the stuff they’re watching. Pardon the audio and the editing, our dear audience of 1. 😄

… we will be in JAPAN.
Needless to say, we’re both very excited to actually be able to say that and mean it. Tickets are bought and the hotel room is booked. Plum and Blossom are off to Japan for 12 glorious days.
It’s been a while since either of us blogged and if the dashboard wasn’t virtual, it would have covered with a layer of dust. As usual, the culprit that distracted us from all things Japanese was basically work. Oh, that evil, evil word…
One thing we’re definitely looking forward to is the ability to wear yukatas as much and as often as we want when we get there. Since its the summer, tourists in traditional dress aren’t that rare a sight. Plus, Plum and I are Asians so we’ll stick out less as compared to people who aren’t Asian and wearing a yukata. (I still think afro hair with a yukata can totally work though)
Ah, Japan… we’re prepared to be wow-ed and reduced to total fangirlism. @0@
