1st Paycheck ~ i could still vividly remember the final days of uni when we were all so eager to another step forward into oh-*yawn*-so-*yawn*-exciting career-hood; finally getting to be earning our own $dough$... Nothing beats the anticipation & excitement of getting the 1st paycheck =)
For me, that was a good 2 & 1/2 years ago. Looking at a new freshie colleague of mine, getting excited over splurging her maiden paycheck over a brand new hp; may not be the latest, flashiest nor priciest model, but i'm pretty sure it mean just as much, had me delving back on my own experience. Do you remember what you got or did with your very 1st paycheck?
One of the few stuffs i got, i realized was still collecting cobwebs in my closet. So i decide to save it from its gloomy fate & spent the later part of Sunday afternoon giving it a new lease of life, in the showcase.

Rm129.90 worth of an afternoon of assembling fun. The complexity of these model kits keep me intrigued.

A good 15mins later ~ done with the 1st limb

Behold! EVA Unit-00 Prototype (completed in under 3 hours)
Simply amazing; to think that it has got more flexibility than me. Also comes with a huge arsenal of weapons that puts even my mom's collection of kitchen utensils to shame.
More shots:

From critically succesful & popular Japanese anime, Shin Seiki Evangelion. It's basically an apocalyptic mecha action series with some controversial Judeo-Christian elements. Very cool piece of animation with very high artistic integrity; as long you don't frustrate yourself to much trying to understand what the hell it's all about. One of the most confusing anime i've ever seen ~ come to think of it, even the plot of the 4400 seemed rather simple & plain to digest...

According to Anno, Evangelion was an attempt to make all perspectives into one, creating characters that represent different things to different viewers to make it impossible for everyone to arrive at a single theory. To some viewers, the characters are psychological representations, while to others, they are philosophical, religious, historical, and even themselves.[16] It seems the main goal was to present characters who reflected the deep depression and eventual recovery that Anno experienced before beginning work on Evangelion[7][17][18] Assistant Director Kazuya Tsurumaki said of the series, "If a person who can already live and communicate normally watches it, they won't learn anything."[19]
