my mantra for the year 2012

I will make time for myself to do some soul searching.

I will make time to travel.

I will learn to be more independant.

Β I will stop and smell the roses sometimes.

I will try to notΒ stress about the small stuff.

Randomness

I really do wonder how did I survive without the internet. πŸ™‚ It’s such an incredible tool!

Anyway, I’m saying this because I got to Skype with my cousins who are far away in Japan. Plus, I got to make my mom happy cos she got to see them too. She used to look after them when they were little, and now they’re all such big kids.

I was talking to them about my upcoming nuptials. I’m so excited to have them come back for it seeing the last time I saw them was almost 4 years ago. I think I last saw my aunt about 10 years ago? =.=” Can’t wait to plan for my honeymoon too. XD Although it wouldn’t be immediately after the wedding, it will happen. We’re hoping sometime in 2013. Danny and I would probably make a trip to see my cousins in Gifu. πŸ˜€

I can’t wait to take up some Japanese lessons too. I kinda forgot everything I learnt when I was younger. :S Anyone’s got any recommendations as to where I should get lesson from? I’ve got one place in mind, but am not sure if it’s any good.

It’s that time again

Just realized that my birthday is in 13 (well, 12 by the time this is posted) days!

Haven’t really thought about what I wanna do this year, but I do know that I would like to just be away for the weekend since the 4th is on a Monday (boo!) A short getaway perhaps? Gotta ask the Bf.

Also, I’ve been thinking of getting a ferret. :p Not anytime soon though, since we don’t really have the space for one (a comfortable cage is HUGE!) I just think they’re pretty cute. πŸ˜€ and probably more sociable compared to a cat? I do like cats, but having dogs at home complicates things (case 1: my dogs’ encounter with my part time cat)

Am working hard on my competition entries. Today I spent the day sewing nettings and attaching/ detaching them, just to see if it fits/ looks good. A lil bit worried though since there are no pre-fitting sessions. πŸ™

Gotta try working at a faster pace.

I’m back!

So, I was away over the weekend for the Anime Festival Asia. It was… somewhat different from what I encountered 2 years ago during their first ever event.

Yes, there were more booths. They were practically selling the same items in most booths (nendoroids, cards, figurines) and very little model kits. Not that I was really interested anyway. I was more interested in finding items for my resin kids, like shoes! But meh, didn’t find any. There was a display of Dolfie Dream dolls which I thought was quite cool, but then again, I’m not really interested in them either. They’re way too anime-ish for my liking.

I was basically walking around aimlessly whilst the BF and the rest of the gang (the gang = my brother, duckie & hawk) went off looking for things of interest. The cosplay outfits for this year was pretty alright, although I did see a pretty mean cosplay of Hatsune Miku of Project Diva. πŸ˜€ I was too lazy to take any pictures while I was there, but I might grab some from the BF when he’s done uploading the pictures (which may take a while)

Also, I’m incredibly happy with the fact that I managed to snag a Drossel Von Flugel nendoroid! <3 I’ve been wanting one since I thought it was cute but couldn’t find them anyway except YesAsia, which was still alittle pricey after all the conversions & shipping. Another thing I’m absolutely happy with? DANBOARD! Yes! I can finally haz Danboard (from Yotsuba & !). Those things are incredibly hard to find. Okay, so technically the danboard doesn’t belong to me but the BF, but I get joint custody of it, right? πŸ˜›

Got to see Danny Choo in person. Watched his Cultured Japan video and it was hilarious (only the ninja bits.XD) Must go see Edo Wonderland if ever in Japan. πŸ˜€

The hotel we stayed at was great (Hangout @ Mt. Emily) but it’s not fun to walk up a hill especially when you’re dead tired. Walking down however isn’t too bad and it’s pretty near the Little India MRT station. Dhoby Ghaut MRT is near too, but do not attempt to walk unless you’re familiar with the place. I don’t know what we’d do without the Singapore map on Hawk’s iPad. The breakfast at the hotel is pretty decent too.

We were also constantly eating while we were there. The day we arrived, we had some rip-off Nando’s (which IMO, tasted weird), then decided to be adventurous in searching for the famous Spicy Chicken wings. We found the place, but it was really out there. =.=” We took a cab to the place, but had to walk out for about 20 mins to the nearest bus stop. Thank goodness the weather was good enough and the group was big (7 of us). Do not attempt this if you do not like to walk and/or is alone.

The next day we had breakkie at the hotel, headed down to Suntec for AFA then Tony Romas for lunch and later had Marche for dinner. Marche in Singapore is much better than the one in KL. It was constantly packed too. We were there at 6pm, and there was already a queue. But it moved fast so you don’t really have to worry.

On our 3rd day, we skipped breakfast cos we were tired from all that walking, checked out and then headed over to Vivocity again to have lunch at Carl’s Jr. since everyone was craving for bacon. Loitered around Vivocity for a bit before heading back to the hotel to grab out bags and then headed over to Novena Square to catch our bus back to KL. As usual, everything was a little rushed. I would actually like to stay a little longer if time (and money) had permitted me to.

I’m missing Singapore already. :S

Bra Bra Brack Sheep…

Randomness, but…

I bought a two new bras today!

And it’s the awesome-est bra ever!

I didn’t think it would fit that great. :3

I think I’m gonna go back next week to get another 5-10 more. XD Just cause it’s awesome. πŸ˜€

Nothing much to update besides me being busy (with what, I have no clue) and I just cleared out almost 10 bags of fabric into two medium IKEA boxes. And they’re both full!!! (need to remind self to take picture) I still have 3 bags of fabric without a home (read:box) so Imma buy another one this weekend if I can.

I also have to see the dentist soon. I keep feeling an extra (wisdom?) tooth growing but it wasn’t until today I realized that it’s actually growing out sideways, and dah lah my top row’s out of space. :S So out it must go. πŸ™ *is scared*

Another 2 (?) weeks before I leave the comforts of college and into the workforce (as an intern). Wonder what challenges awaits me. I still don’t know where I’m gonna be posted. Will know soon enough. πŸ™‚

Also, Yuu hasn’t had any play time as of late. Last time he saw the sun was about 3-4 days ago? XD I made him his yukata and that was it. Still can’t decide if he doesn’t like me sewing clothes for him (cos he’s always into some sorta mischief whenever I try to put clothes on him) or if he just prefers being nude. T_T

Looking forward to November cos of AFA! Not to mention Singapore~ weeeeee… πŸ˜€ I wanna visit Universal studios as well as check out the new casino, but the S.O is reluctant due to time & money constraints. Bah. But everything is still in the works. Mmm… I love me some holiday. πŸ˜€

Can’t wait for the whole home makeover to be done. My stuff is still all over the place. No use trying to rearrange them now cos the walls still need a new coat of paint. Blue FTW! πŸ˜€

dum dum dum…

Can’t wait for a getaway.

Need to de-stress from all the thinking.

I wanna sew something for Yuu, but what?

Still saving for Kyou’s body.

Did I mention that I’ve officially given them the names Hijikata Yuu & Hijikata Kyou? :3

I want so many things in life (though not necessarily materialistic things)

Incoherent thoughts. Sometimes I think I should write a haiku. =.=”

HolyMoly~

I need to think of things to update. I think my brain has probably turned into goo. =.=” Gotta sleep in the “guest room” surrounded by tons of stuff cos they’re still doing up our room. Our toilet is none existent right now cos they’ve removed all the tiles, “throne” and shower. It’s also incredibly dusty… but at least the drilling has stopped. (or maybe it’s cos I’m away at college)

Still am pretty busy, with college work and work placement and all. I’ve finally submitted my internship form. I dunno if I made the right choices though. *scared* I really wouldn’t mind going to Singapore to intern, but it’s the whole cost of living and such. If I didn’t have to worry about that, well, I wouldn’t mind interning anywhere. *sigh* Anyone in SG willing to put me up for 3 months? XD

He’s coming home!

Checked my email this morning and discovered that my boy’s shipped! Yay!

He’ll probably arrive when I’m already gone, but it’s okay. Just as long as he arrives without a hitch. πŸ™‚

Still packing my bags. Gotta bring an umbrella along for the trip cos I heard it’s gonna be wet. πŸ™

Can’t wait! One more day~

Woohoo!!!

I am so happy! Besides the fact that I’m already on break, I might also be going to China again!

So the S.O’s parents are planning a trip to Yunan and asked if we’d like to go as well. Schedule’s a little off, but I figured it wouldn’t really hurt since I know I will be able to catch up with classes and I won’t be having another decent break for a looooooong time. December’s internship, yo~

So yea, China in July. ^_^ I know I’m suppose to blog about my previous China trip, but editing pictures are a pain (not to mention they’re all in the S.O’s computer) so yea, nothing really much to be said about that trip apart from the fact that it was crazzzyyyyyy hectic. o.O We’re planning to take the same tour company again (Reliance) but from what I’ve heard, it’s only to Yunan and Shangri-la County. Hmmm… but yea, it’s supposedly the height of summer, so it’s gonna be hot Hot HOT! (maybe not so since we’re travelling to the mountains)

Ugh… another thing I need to do is renew my passport. I’ve got less than 3 months left on it before it expires, and I can’t go anywhere cos you need at least 6 months on your passport anyway. >_< Maybe I should get started on my homework now so I don’t regret it later. XD

Anddd… tomoro I will be attending my first ever dollmeet, and Jin may not go. *cries* I won’t have a friend. πŸ™ And it’ll be a little weird for me to go since I don’t have my boy yet. Kinda defeats the purpose, ne? I dunno. =.=”

Mmm.. I wanna go sew some small scaled skirts. Just for the heck of it.
