月饼 mooncake. Most people like the yolk but I don’t eat mooncakes with yolks. This is enough mooncake for me. I don’t really like them, but I’ll eat a bit of a red bean mooncake tomorrow.
Also, I added new photos to two older blog posts. You can check those posts out if you have time or if you’re interested. Have a Mid-Autumn Festival guys~~
Travel Diary: The Peak of Vancouver
I went to a pretty café yesterday
I made a Tumblr account. I used to talk negatively about Tumblr on my Twitter account (hahaha) but my experience with it now is very different. I don’t follow Tumblr blogs with sad photos and it’s basically replaced Twitter for me. Many of you guys have read my post on being disillusioned with Twitter – you can read it HERE.
I don’t have those issues with Tumblr so I think it really depends on who you follow. I like Tumblr because I’ve learned things about myself. I find that I mostly blog about anime on this blog, my cosplay Instagram and Twitter. However, the anime fan side of me is just one side of me. I’m discovering the other parts of me through the things I reblog and like on Tumblr. I also write my own posts on there so you can check that out if you are curious or feel like it.
I don’t mind sharing my Tumblr publicly because I have nothing to hide. I don’t think I’m going to post or reblog anything that I mind people seeing. If you follow me, let me know who you are so I can follow back!
Listening to: 田馥甄 – 愛了很久的朋友
My friend took me to a sushi restaurant and the ceiling was decorated with flowers!
My other friend came back from Disneyland and she gave me a bracelet! I love it because my Disney necklace is from Snow White.
Mood: Happy and stressed
Listening to: Jay Chou
Drinking: Chatime milk tea (make at home)
I’ve never done an unboxing blog post before, so I thought I could do it with this. Relatives from China gifted us a lot of presents, and this is one of them.
I didn’t expect gifts at all, so this was a huge surprise. I opened the box and saw Snow White’s red apple. At first I thought it was a beautiful ornament, and then…
Doesn’t this look an ornament? Please tell me I’m not the only one…
Then I realized you could open it, and inside was a necklace made out of real gold. O__O There is a laminated Certificate of Precious Metal Test, saying that it’s a gold necklace.
There are other papers too, and that’s how I found out that the name of the necklace is <>. I think that’s beautiful, especially since I was feeling blue.
The necklace is part of the 3D series.
^_^ Everything I own is fairly inexpensive, so this is a special gift to me.
I was feeling blue for a while but lately I’ve been feeling much better. A few things helped me. The first was Sudoku.
Honestly, I don’t think Sudoku is fun. However, I was sleeping for 12 hours and then remembered a time when I was very productive. It was when I played games such as Sudoku, chess, and mahjong. I decided to play Sudoku again and later that day I felt energetic enough to get work done! I don’t think it’s a placebo effect because Sudoku stimulates your brain, apparently. My current time is under 10 minutes, and my goal is to finish a puzzle in five minutes.
Another thing that helped me was BiSH’s music. BiSH, also known as Brand-new idol SHiT, is a Japanese idol group. Sometimes the girls stick their middle finger during performances, and some of their music videos have them killing creepy men. They scream in some songs too. I think that’s the coolest thing ever. Their songs sound so good. I listen to their albums on Spotify. My favourites in their Fake Metal Jacket album:
- BiSH -星が瞬く夜に
- SMACK baby SMACK (I prefer the 2017 version in THE GUERRiLLA BiSH)
Homegrown cherry tomatoes
The cool part about this (in my opinion) is that these are grown in a pot. There are a lot of plants at home, including green onion, an assortment of herbs, flowers, succulents, indoor plants and underwater plants.
It’s also good to buy fruits and vegetables locally. I have a ton of apricots from the farmer’s market!
Posting this in case you forgot what I look like when I’m not in cosplay lmao
Who else didn’t cry while watching Violet Evergarden? Getting called stone cold and heartless was quite amusing. Hahaha! Still, it was a lovely anime with beautiful visuals.
I bought a dress today.
I prefer colder weather, but cold grass jelly tastes so good in summer. I’ve moved on from drinking grass jelly drinks and now I’m eating the actual grass jelly. I add brown sugar and hot water and it tastes yummy after cooling it in the fridge.
Not my picture
I know a lot of people add it to their milk teas. I like that too, but I usually just eat out of the bowl like that. LOL
Listening to: Red Swan by Yoshiki feat. HYDE
Yup, it’s the Attack on Titan Season 3 opening. I know some people don’t like it because it’s not Linked Horizon. It sounds amazing to me.
I went a thrift store after a friend said I might find anime related goods or materials for cosplay. Unfortunately, it was not my lucky day but it was still worth checking out because I picked up a couple of cool things!
I love thrift stores. They carry so much cool stuff.
After I bought the tote bag, I used it as my shopping bag hahaha. It was $1.99.
I have read all of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, but this book contains The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes as well. I have read a few stories from it but I’m rereading all the stories. Okay so it was $4.99 so I told the cashier I didn’t want it anymore because I already read most of the book already… then the cashier changed it to $2.99. O__O So nice!
I like buying my own books because I write in them and highlight certain parts. The book was not written in at all when I got it.
I usually write my shopping lists on sticky notes, and once I’m done with them I use them as bookmarks HAHAHA. It won’t fall out because it’s sticky. I fold the sticky note over the top of a page so it is super secure. It doesn’t stick out, but it’s still easy to find the page.
***My thrift store walkthrough***
Thankfully this thrift store was clean. I’m allergic to dust so I don’t go to thrift stores often at all. When I do, I always go to the book section for novels and manga. Then I check out the figurines because a worker told me they sometimes get nendoroids! They’re probably knock-offs but if it looks decent and costs very little, it’s not bad. (Pro tip: Value Village sells foam heads around Halloween. It’s an essential item for any cosplayer – used to style, cut wigs or for storage purposes.) Then I go to the plush section. I did see a Tuxedo Mask plush for $1.99 (from Sailor Moon) but didn’t buy it. Then I check out bags but I’m extremely picky so I usually just buy one or two things in total every time. If I’m looking for cosplay materials, I look at clothes and shoes! Thrift stores are life-savers for last minute cosplays.
