Every now and then, we really need to get a good break. Whether you are schooling or working, its best to get away from those hectic moments of burying yourselves in the books or facing the stress at work. Seriously, we need that freedom. The fresh air. Away from the city life.

That’s where I had decided to organize this picnic outing and invited quite a number of friends that I’m close with. So yesterday on the 25th, we had our picnic at the Singapore Botanic Garden. Its 1 out of 5 best places to gather for a lovely picnic in this sunny Singapore. All of us agreed to the place. Each of us had brought some snacks and drinks to share around.

Its great to be in a company with good friends where we had so much to talk about. Sharing the jokes, the laughter and stories. Some of us, including myself as being cosplayers even had a small photoshoot and pose as the characters we usually cosplay. A little entertainment added as part of the picnic! =D

Overall, the day was awesome! Even if it was just a simple one. Most importantly was the bonding we share around as good friends. We really should do this again someday. =)

Kyoryuger Red!

When a friend of mine posted this Kyoryuger Red costume in his Facebook which he had intended to sell it away, I couldn’t resist falling in love with it. Eventually I decided to buy it after managed to strike a deal with him for a good discount price.

Kyoryuger Red was one of the five Super Sentai heroes in his team seen in the latest 37th Japanese Super Sentai, known as Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger. “Super Sentai”, literally the Japanese version of Power Rangers. This Power Ranger carries the symbol of the Tyrannosaurus dinosaur.

Its the third Sentai series with a dinosaur motif, after Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and Bakuryu Sentai Abaranger (Power Rangers Dino Thunder). Many fans from both Super Sentai and Powers Rangers still love those series where the team uphold the dinosaur genres.

Story quoted from Wikipedia

“Long ago in the time of dinosaurs, the Deboss Army invades Earth to the point of the extinction of the dinosaurs but they were defeated by Wise God Torin and the Zyudenryu during the first invasion. In the present day, the Deboss Army resurface as they resume their invasion. To counter the revived threat, Torin selects five brave individuals who must defeat their respective Zyudenryu first in order to acquire their powers to become the ‘People of the Strong Dragons’, the Kyoryugers.”

Ever since I started watching the 1st few episodes, I was totally engrossed by this Kyoryu Red. Mainly due to him of carrying the spirit from the king of dinosaur, and which was my favourite dinosaur of all. And since my friend had wanting it sell off and me having enough cash, why the wait?

Yes I want it! And furthermore as mentioned earlier, he’s a Tyrannosaurus Power Ranger! And its red! Like my Red Ranger from Mighty Morphin. Just right for me! =D

BRAVE IN! KYORYU CHANGE!

GABUTYRA!!

Feel so happy wearing it! And awesome suit isn’t it? I just love the make of it. Reminds me of the time when I first test out my Red Ranger suit. But unlike my Red Ranger helmet which is resin type, this Kyoryu Red is eva foam type. But I’m ok with it. Good thing is that its lightweight. The only disadvantage is that, it can wear and tear easily if not handled carefully.

So like how I can taken good care of my resin helmet, so too for this foam helmet.

And of course. To ensure everyone that I know of, no matter what, I’m still that legendary, old timer Mighty Morphin Red Ranger. That Red Ranger will always be me. Its my childhood Power Ranger and never will I stop putting it on, until the time comes where I had to retire.

Consider this Kyoryuger Red as my form of upgrade mode of the Tyranno Ranger. Like most Power Rangers that we know of, they do carry more than one power. But their very 1st chosen superhero form can never be miss! =D
