I’m not exactly in tip top shape right now so forgive the sporadic posting. I had been really hit with an asthma attack. Lol! I blame it with my mad dash to clean the house before new years, and also its really chilly here in Phnom Penh the past few weeks compounded by the ever present dust. So I had to confine myself to the house for the time being.
So what had I been doing? Thank God for photoshop. I’ve been doodling, learning and trying to master the use of graphic tablet in illustration. We’ve also been crazy about playing wii games. Chinks and Hi-ace playing, me mostly watching and screaming at them hahaha. I want to play though at times I have hard time breathing so I’m giving the wii a rest.
Guess who is now so into playing with it? Hi-ace!! When he got it, it was like he has no interest and he has just been watching me and Chinks play. Then last week I goaded him into trying to play bowling. Lol! For a first timer, he was good. Really good. Then he tried boxing and now there’s no turning back.
You can’t talk to him when he is wii-ing. Hahaha I even took a video of him playing boxing but I dare not post it here he might just bar me from blogging forevah. It was that funny! He says he didn’t realize boxing is so much fun and he gets to exercise. Ssssh, the next thing he’d be asking me to get him some wrestling equipment!
Anyway, since were enjoying it, I’ve been looking for new games in malls here. LOL! Apparently all wii games here in Phnom Penh are the pirated variety. Which I could not play on my console because I either have to crack open it and insert the mod chip therefore voiding the warranty and also I would not be able to update it because that would risk ‘bricking’ the console. The tech guy in the wii shops here said, that all wii’s here in PP they open up to insert a chip so they could play the copied game, and if I want to I could just bring my console and have it done, lol but they won’t guarantee that it won’t be bricked eventually.
I could also do a soft mod on it but I’m kinda wary about doing that so I’ll probably be looking for some original games somewhere else. It’ll be costly but let’s indulge once in a while.
