Hi everyone! A few days or weeks ago I saw on my friend’s Instagram story that she’d purchased three books from Aksara. Now, as a lot of you know, I love books. So whenever I see deals on books I always feel tempted to buy them. It was already 9 pm and I was still at Central Park so I couldn’t go to the store. I tried to stalk their Instagram and found the post:

I distinctly remember the tamagotchi trend that rocked the world when I was in elementary school. I don’t really recall what happened, only that everyone was bragging about their cool tamagotchi while I…. didn’t have one. No big deal. A few weeks ago I picked up my very first one by browsing tags on Instagram—it was a V6 rock city blue music star.
Afterwards I joined several different Facebook groups centered around tamagotchi—buying, selling, and fangirling about them. I sold my v6 in order to buy different ones. And now, somehow, I find myself buying and selling and collecting tamagotchi. Is this my weird way of making up for the trends that I missed out on as a kid? Maybe so.
These are some of the tamas from my personal collection right now.
I got this v3 from a local seller. We meet him sometimes during our thrift shopping adventures and he mentioned that he had a few at his house. It still has the sticker ☺️
This is from Singapore. I purchased it and I haven’t played it yet. It is a Hanerutchi 2 and is in Japanese. I simply love the shell design!
I got this from a local seller! I was so surprised to see it on my Instagram feed and immediately bought it.
This is a Keitai Akai that I received in a trade. It is in such good condition. This one was traded with a blue v4 and came from Australia.
I purchased this one from Tamagotchi Traders. It came all the way from Singapore, and it’s another Keitai Akai. I’ll try and update this post later with all the egg design names! This is one of my favorites.
You may have also noticed the Cinamoroll pet! I got this one from the same seller as the v3 with pink hearts. I bought it right away since it is very rare, but I don’t know how to play it because unfortunately, I don’t know how to read Japanese…
I just wanted to write a quick update while I had some down time! I’ve been working a lot lately, plus working on my poems + prose. I think I might submit to some contests soon. I hope I do well (trying to be positive a la the law of attraction)!
