About Me

Hello! o/ My name is Janine. You can call me Janine, Jan or psst…on second thought, scratch the last one. XD I am from the Philippines. It’s kinda obvious now but I love dolls. XD

I first saw Ball-jointed dolls when I was in first year college. A friend of mine showed me photos of her friend’s doll, which was a Ducan from Dream of Doll (DOD). From there, I started checking out the D.O.D. website. During those times, the doll I really wanted was the Black Ducan, but as he was a one-off, I gave up my dreams of getting one. 😥 Then I saw the DOIs. I think they were still quite new back then. DOI Crush caught my eye and he easily became my favorite doll from DOD. ♥

However, I was still a student back then so buying a doll worth $500+ could only happen in my dreams. XD With that, I just contented myself with looking at their photos. XD

Come college graduation, I swore that I would make my dream come true and buy the doll of my dreams once I get a job. Needless to say, I found my first job and I saved up for my first doll. 😀

While researching about dolls, I found out that we have a local doll company here in the Philippines called Manika Manila. I joined the community and I was happy to find more people in my country who love dolls too. ♥ I’m glad I joined MM ’cause I learned more about the dos and don’ts in the doll world. 🙂

I also found out about the different doll companies. That actually made the journey to bringing home my first doll harder because there were now so many dolls I wanted, I couldn’t decide which one to buy. XD Thankfully, I managed to finally make a decision to just get the the doll I’ve always wanted, a DOD: DOI Crush. 🙂

After months of saving up, I finally ordered my first doll and after a few months of waiting, he finally arrived. My first doll, Jared, finally arrived last November 2011. That was one of the happiest days in my life. XD

When I first started in this hobby, I said that I’d be happy with owning just one doll, but since Jared’s arrival, my little doll family has grown a lot. 🙂 Seems like the saying “No man is an island.” applies to dolls too. Hahaha. XD

Though it’s been a few years, I’m still exploring this hobby because new dolls are being released every year. New styles and new trends are being introduced everyday, so let’s see where this journey can take me next time. 🙂

Sooo, there. 😀 What else? Other things about me that are not doll related… My favorite anime is Yu-Gi-Oh! (Especially the 1st one) because of all the Egyptian themed stuff. I’ve always loved Egyptian themed stuff ever since I was young. Hopefully in the future, I can get a chance to visit Egypt. I love the bands Train, 30 Seconds to Mars and Linkin Park. And oh yeah, My favorite book is Harry Potter and I have always been a Gryffindor…Until Pottermore opened and the Sorting Hat placed me in Slytherin. But that’s okay, I Slytherin is cool too. OH OH OH! And I love the color orange.

And I think that’s it. 😀 If you have any questions, feel free to email me at millenniumshinkei@gmail.com. 🙂
