I went to Akimatsuri, an anime autumn festival. My friend couldn’t make it so I went by myself, and I had a fun time. I don’t really mind going to places alone. ^^ It was a neat experience because I usually like to spend my time at home.

I won a Pokemon backpack at the Maid Cafe. ^^

I bought a pin, a keychain, and stickers for only $3! I will probably use the stickers to decorate plain notebooks and maybe my Macbook.

21

I turned 21 years old on October 1! On the day before my birthday, I got my ears pierced with a friend. I got upper lobe done and it was painless. We visited a Chinese garden then went to my place for a sleepover.

All of my close friends attended my birthday dinner. We went to a Japanese restaurant.

Two friends surprised me with a cake. The staff sang ‘Happy Birthday’ really loud and I was shocked! I thought it was for a different table.

You can see my balloon and a scarf my friends gave me. I got a lot of cool gifts! I honestly think that I have the best friends in the whole world because they accept me for who I am. I am a little different with the whole anime hobby thing. I act like a kid, and I ask a lot of dumb questions. They still love me for being me.

Anime Evolution 2017

I cosplayed as Sakura Kinomoto from Cardcaptor Sakura. The sad thing is that I had gloves in my bag the whole time but forgot about them.

I have so many people to thank for making this possible! Firstly, Maya for the clothes and hat, Jilliam for the socks, Maria for doing my makeup, Maria’s friends for the ride to the convention, and Gladys for taking the photos.

Sakura and Syaoran Li =) Some context: The cosplayer told me, “Don’t worry Sakura, I’ll protect you!”

I’m waiting for photos from a couple of photographers so I’m looking forward to that. I bought some pins and you can check them out here.

Richmond Night Market

The night market opens every year during the summer and opens from 7 PM – 12 AM. I went to the Richmond Night Market in BC, Canada.

It’s a bunch of tents on a large open space. The food stalls sell Asian foods and the tents sell cheap stuff from Asia. It’s really popular and the entrance fee for this one was around $3.75 which is expensive in my opinion. It’s still worth going.

Pocky was $1 each which is cheaper than the supermarket.

Weeb thoughts:

– I’ve been craving takoyaki ever since Hatchan made takoyaki for the Straw hats in One Piece

LOL I need to get a life!! Part of me loves me for being me, but the other part of me is like… why am I like this

I mean, anime hasn’t been interfering with my life. My family and friends irl treat me the same. If anything, anime has been treating me quite well LOL. I’ve met tons of online friends who love anime like me. People support my cosplaying hobby and the blog has really taken off thanks to my love for anime. I’m really happy with myself right now. I have no desire to change atm. ^^

I bought One Piece Zoro blocks/lego for $8. I’ve only seen Chopper in malls and the mall was selling for $15. Not only was this cheaper, there were more choices and I like Zoro more. ❤

Diamond blocks Gift Series – Zoro post HERE.

I also got 8 pairs of socks for $10. The ones I chose had Pokémon and Sailor Moon designs on them.

I use stickies to mark my page instead of paper bookmarks. I don’t like to hold onto bookmarks and they always seem to fall out of the book. Another advantage of this is that you can put it beside the paragraph or line you left off.

I got the Shio Ramen at Danbo in Vancouver, BC.

Housekeeping stuff 

I’m working on a digital drawing so it will be up within the next couple of days.

Plum blossoms

No filter, in Vancouver, BC. Many people get mixed up between plum blossoms and cherry blossoms. There are many differences, but perhaps the easiest way is by looking at the petals. Cherry blossoms have a split at the end of each petal, while plum blossoms (pictured above) do not.
