Travel Diary: Parliament & Butchart Gardens of Victoria

I went to Victoria, BC again. Last time I went to Craigdarroch Castle, Chinatown and Miniature Museum. This time I went to the Parliament Buildings (only outside) and Butchart Gardens.

The Parliament Buildings are really big.

The Butchart Gardens are quite big as well. I took photos of my favourite flowers. I must have missed the lilies because I don’t think I saw them…

The gardens are definitely my favourite place in Victoria.

Photo credit goes to one of my favourite friends in the whole world. We took these at the rose garden on my university campus during break!

DIY: Clovers & Flowers

1. Four leaf clovers

InstaBox_20177201572472_mh1500541128119

Step 1: Find four leaf clovers.

Step 2: Put transparent tape on both sides of the clovers to preserve them. Cut off the edges of the tape to keep it clean.

Step 3: Clip them. I’m using my Rilakkuma clips.

Step 4: Tie them to a string and hang them up. I’m hanging them above my computer, but you can hang them anywhere you like.

2. Fake flowers

Simply wrap fake flowers around your bed frame. There are lots of other things in the home you can do this with.

 

I hope you liked these easy DIY home ideas! See you next time!

Back

I’ve changed a little these past days. My appreciation for being alone has gone up. Loneliness is not a bad thing. 

I have increasingly become more and more disgusted by public transit and public washrooms. I wore gloves when I held onto the handles on the train and I’ll probably wear gloves in the summer as well. Sure, I’ll look weird but I don’t really care about that.

Damn, I have been quite rude to some people in the past. I’ve rejected hugs from people and also told a close friend blatantly to stop touching my arm when I was a teenager.


I am me,

and unfortunately

I don’t change for the likes of others

easily.

Something people may not know about me

I think water is flavourless and that’s why I like to drink other drinks. I used to drink lemon tea every day at school, but now I’ve switched to orange juice! ^^ At home, I drink tea.

After I made the milk tea, I realized that I did not have a big straw for the pearls. That’s why I’m using a spoon right now! ^^
