My hectic three weeks!


Hey guys, what's up?

Sorry for the lack of updates and blogging. The last three weeks have been hectic and I've just been overly exhausted...when I try to blog I am seriously about to fall asleep! Not to mention I just think that everything I write is plain out boring!

Anyways, I'll try and explain everything in a nutshell of what's been going on in my life!

December 3
My friend Vanna got married...I would have gone with Bach but he ended up ditching me to go to Stereosonic since he isn't well acquainted with Vanna. I was on the table with my mum and her friends whilst the girls filled up another table. I was stupid enough accidentally delete all my images on my camera =_=" Sophary looked so beautiful in her yellow bridesmaid dress!!
It was an all right night, I was super exhausted and feeling sick. By the time I got home I pulled an all-nighter watching "Flower Boy Ramyun Shop" LOL totally died the next day!

Drama Addict: 꽃미남 라면가게

FLOWER BOY RAMYUN SHOP

Hey guys, how's your weekend?

I just had to quickly share this drama with you. I'm in like...total love with this drama. I literally pulled an all-nighter last night JUST to watch it all till the latest episode. Sadly this drama will be ending in about 3-4 weeks time! But oh my god it's hella addictive!!

This drama stars the ever gorgeous, Jung Il Woo, the second male lead from "49 Days". He is now the lead male alongside Lee Chung Ah (female lead) and Lee Ki Woo. From memory, Lee Ki Woo starred in a movie called "The Classic", if you haven't seen it, it's a really beautiful film I recommend ^^

Yang Eun Bi
Anyways, this drama is based around Yang Eun Bi (Lee Chung Ah). She's a striving college student who wants to become a teacher to earn governmental payment, a set salary that will help her remain stable her entire life. Cha Chi Soo (Jung Il Woo) is the son of a massive corporate CEO that owns most of Seoul. He is pretty much labelled as a prince but at the same time his handsomeness easily captivates women of all ages, despite him only being a 93' born high school senior.

I love receiving parcels!

Hey guys, what's up?

Nothing much has been going on in my end except I've been receiving my mail!! YAYAYAYAY I love getting mail and parcels, do you? ^__^


I just thought, since my items arrived I would blog about it. My black high-waisted River Island jeans arrived on Sunday and once I put them on, I fell in love!! Even my sister-in-law loved them and wanted a pair!! I will definitely buy another pair of River Island jeans ^_^ Oh! And I am able to link you them now since I found them on the actual River Island site hehe

Black high waisted skinny jeans
By the way, Happy December everyone!! It's 22 days left until Christmas, how will you guys celebrate it? Unfortunately, in Australia it's summer D: so we never have a white christmas :( but I guess how we celebrate it, doesn't matter, just as long as you're with your loved ones. I'm proud to announce that Yuka will be flying down from Brisbane on Christmas day and staying until New Years. Nyahhh so happy!! I miss her so much so I really can't wait to see her!

As the new year draws closer to an end, my trip to South Korea with my bubbu, Kimu is too!! I'm super excited but at the same time my hearts breaking because I just want to return to Japan :( It's my first time in Korea so, hopefully it is very worthwhile and since I have great company, of course it will be ^^

Anyway I'm running out of things to talk about so I'm just gonna post some pictures of my items lol .. if I talk about Japan too much I might end up crying ㅠㅠ I'm begging the boyfriend to go back next year in October, so fingers crossed!!

Daily ramblings of a semi-adolescent girl

Hey guys, what's up?

Heart w/ wings necklace. Bought off eBay for $15!
I haven't been up to much but because I have computer access I thought I would just blog for the fun of it~ But, I shamefully admit that I have been spending when I should be saving for Korea :( I bought that necklace above as a xmas present for Kia...and then I found the original one I bought for her ^^

Shopperholic: Recent Purchases

Hey there ;)

I know, I just posted...and you're wondering why the heck am I posting again despite no one ever reading my blog. Well, it's because I haven't been blogging lately due to the boyfriend hogging my desk space for his studies. 

I was extremely tempted to purchase a MacBook Pro because of his hogging habits and thought of it's convenience when I was gonna head over to South Korea next February. Then again, I didn't want to have to fork out another $1500 for it. *HURTING + BURNS HOLE IN WALLET AND BANK ACCOUNT* So, I shall refrain and splurge on the more cuter things in life.

So, I've been in a shopper mood lately and I'll just share with you what I've purchased recently over the week.

ASOS
It was my anniversary and because I didn't get to do much shopping when we went out, the boyfriend allowed me to make a purchase online on anything I wanted and...so I settled on these pair of black skinny high-waisted jeans that I was in total need of...since I only have blue jeans. But I can't wait to try these!!

-Unfortunately, I don't have an image or link to these jeans, seems they're no longer available on ASOS. /majorsadface-


GMARKET
I've been searching for a cape/poncho-like jacket. Ever since SeoHyun bought one on We Got Married, I've been obsessed with finding one, and after a long time + a lot of days...I've narrowed it down to this gorgeous one at: 마크막스 [MakMaks]
레트로망토 코트 | Retro Mangto Coat

I recently noticed that my little sling bag from Honeys was shedding and flaking so I thought it was time for a new bag. I searched, even went onto the Honeys website in hopes getting a replacement. Sadly the one I wanted ended up being sold out so I resorted to Gmarket and found a cute one at: 킴스샵11 [Kim's Shop 11]

M219 - Tan Colour

Honeys
Upon looking for a new bag I ended up stumbling on their clothing range. I love Honeys Japan because it was the only store I could actually shop in due to my chubbiness and their variety of sizes ranging from Size S-L, not to mention that they are CHEAP. Like, their prices is what I would spend here in Ausralia!
 Most shops in Japan are "One size fits all" and their pricing's are at least 4,000JPY+ and sizings never go above size M. Hurts my ego about being a voluptuous woman LOL but anyways. I found this cute pair of shorts and thought, I must have it. I assume it was also featured in a Popteen Magazine because of the watermark. But I love the fact that it's got lace on the bottom hem of the shorts, I like it because it's high-waisted and features a fancy tie up! Cute ne? ^0^

Pinkyparadise
Kill me now. I have like three pairs of unopened circle lenses and 5-6 opened pairs. Not to mention that PinkyParadise was having a promotion. Buy two pairs and get one random pair free. @__@ lets hope that it's a random pair that I can wear and will like. I ended up purchasing the EOS Candy Brown and Candy Magic Barbie King Size Grey. I've actually had my eyes on these for a long time but never bothered to buy, so I thought why not?

Candy Magic Barbie King Size Grey
My shopperholic mood has died down~ so I think it's about time I go back to napping. All this blogging has worn me out!

Peace!

Review: Princess Pinky Twilight Green

Hey everybody, what's up?

So, I'm at home and sick on a Saturday :( So I've decided that it was time I pulled out a review, as promised, with my Princess Pinky Twilight Green lenses.


I purchased these from: www.pinkyparadise.com
Yes, I purchased them from my own pocket! I don't get sponsored, but reviewing them for the purpose of informing and helping other :) coz I'm cool like that...jokes! And not to mention that I am addicted to circle lenses LOL

Anyways, on with the review!

Le Anniversary

Hey guys, what up?

*ahem* no comment.

So, today was my long awaited 4 year anniversary with the boyfriend. Nothing too special...we're not the types to really go all out but what happened was we went up to Melbourne City and pretty much decided to spoil each other. That didn't work out as we really planned, we pretty much just spend under $100 and had some Korean BBQ at 대장금 (Dae Jang Geum). Overall we just had a usual date up in the city, something we rarely do but it was so relaxing and enjoyable :)

Sydney & Kpop Music Festival

Hey guys, what up yo?

Did anyone head down to Sydney last weekend for the Sydney Kpop Music Festival?

Jenii, Kimu, me & Sophy

Just so you kiddies know, the concert took place to celebrate the 50th year of diplomatic ties between Australia and South Korea. The concert was the first of it's kind with 12 big idol groups in Korea who came down under to deliver a spectacular performance!

5 November 2011

My new Monster headphones.

Hey Errr-body! What up?

Melbourne's weather today is soooo beautiful! But I'm cooped up inside cleaning my room and packing for my trip to Sydney. IT'S ONLY 6 DAYS AWAY TILL I CAN SEE MY BOYFRIEND, LEE KIKWANG XD

Packing my bags!
Sadly enough, I'm not extremely excited yet LOL despite writing that in caps @_@ I guess I'm more excited about spending the weekend in Sydney and taking photos to show my beautiful readers. It'll be my second time heading down to Sydney, the last time was for a dance competition and all I did was hang around Paramatta. Not fun :( This time I'll finally be able to explore the city with good girlfriend company as well as see 12 top Korean Idols perform at the Sydney Kpop Music Fest! Is anyone else going?

3 November 2011

And this is just one of the reason's why I love her.

Melbourne Cup Weekend Getaway! [Pic Heavy]

Hey guys, what up?


How beautiful does Lakes Entrance look?

On Saturday I went away with my boyfriend, my brother, his wife Polly and her nephew Victor. We went to Lakes Entrance for two nights and three days, just to get away from the city life and enjoy leisurely time together as well as use our new fishing rods to catch some fish and crabs! Sadly, the weather wasn't the greatest because it was forecasted to rain the entire weekend :(

Review: EOS New Adult Blue

Hey guys, what up?

I woke up this morning and I guess, because I haven't been blogging lately, I decided that I should snap up a quick review for you guys.



I bought the EOS New Adult Blue a couple of weeks back and only decided to review them now. I purchased these lenses from: www.honeycolor.com/

This was the second time I was bold enough to buy blue circle lens. Since my skin tone is a slightly tanned tone, I don't think they would suit me very well. But you only live once and throughout life, to know things, you need to go through trial and error for the experience.

Missing my second home, Japan.

Hey guys, what up? How was everybody's weekend?

I'm not up to much myself, seems like when I'm home on a Saturday and Bach goes out to play FIFA12 with his boyfriend of a brother, I'm stuck alone and depressing thoughts always seem to loom up in my mind! =___="

Our farewell party.
L to R: Yuka, Kazuki, Akane, Bach & Me
Whenever I'm alone and just browsing through my computer I always stumble upon an image of me back in Japan or end up chatting to one of my Japanese friends. But I'm actually happy that they have decided to hop onto Facebook! We may have a language barrier but that doesn't seem to stop us so I'm really happy about that ^^

20 October 2011

Hair Influence

Hey guys, what up?

So~ for the past two days...or even longer than that, I've been having a big dilemma about whether to cut my fringe short or keep growing it out like I've planned to. Reason being for this dilemma is because of all those gorgeous and beautiful Kpop idols! Because their hair looks soo good! Not to mention those adorable gyaru models like Tsubasa Masuwaka... But you get my point right?

Tsubasa Masawaka
The other day I went to get my hair trimmed. By then, my fringe was literally up to my chin! I was ecstatic, then I was stupid in forgetting to tell the lady NOT to cut my fringe...and within five seconds it was gone and cut down all the way up to my nose :( I went home and cried. IT FINALLY WAS LONG AFTER 4 MONTHS...all that waiting and tending to it @_@ and yes, I cried and felt extremely ugly!! Not that I was vain, but because all that time I've been anticipating for it to grow and I was finally achieving something. Now all that patience went down the drain. Not to mention that she did a horrible job, literally spent FIVE minutes on it. Ugh, but that was my fault. NEVER AGAIN.

But anyway...the sole reason why I wanted to grow my fringe out is because I've had a fringe for the past decade and I thought it was time to grow it out to look and feel more mature, SeoHyun of Girls' Generation was the inspiration! But as I check out the other Kpop ladies, I can't help but want to chop it off and go for a more cute and innocent look. Nyaaaaah, so I'm just going to spam with some of the people's hair styles I like and may get it cut similar to. But I'm going to try and have some self-control...because I am determined to grow it again and NOT get it mistakenly cut again.

19 October 2011

Forty-seven and counting...

Hey guys, what up?

When we were in Japan this February!

Today marks my 47th month of being together with my boyfriend, woohoo! We've got one more month until we reach our forth year of being together. Who would've known? Seriously, four years is a big achievement and...me and Bach don't exactly think of it like that LOL more like, we've reached another milestone in our relationship. It rather comes to a surprise to us, I mean to others its a shock we've been together for that long...but to us it doesn't feel like it's been long, all that matters to us is that we're just glad that we're happy together and still progressing through our relationship.

Sorry to disappoint the friends, but marriage is still far off and I'm apologetic to my mother because she's been nagging me to have a grandchild for her. LOL I'm only 21 and as much as I absolutely love children and want to give her a grandchild, I want to travel some more before settling down like that.

Today @ Nando's 
Well, I didn't want to ramble on why I love Bach...that would just be awkward because I'm not exactly the affectionate type of girlfriend, I'd rather bag the poor fella LOL that's more enjoyable!

Just a curious question though, what do you do to celebrate your anniversary? Or what would be your ideal way of celebrating your anniversary with your partner?

Anywho, I'll be back some time to blog about something random one day.

Toodles!

16 October 2011

Brunch with the beauties

Khatsii, Kimu, Saera & Julie
Hihi~
Thought I'd make a brief blog post about today's happenings since I probably won't blog for the week since...nothing interesting in my life ever happens XD

Any who, I received a message from my beautiful Julie (Julie's Little World) inviting me out to brunch for the Sunday which Cat (Khatsii) and Kimu (xxshinrai) were going to be there as well. Don't be alarmed, this wasn't a blogger meet up LOL we're actually friends prior to that and blogging! But Julie kept saying it was a bloggers meet up haha

15 October 2011

More CECIL ♥

How's everyone been?
For the most part, I've been well and alive...possibly kind of sinking into depression. But don't be alarmed, I'll be pick myself back up soon.

Case & Lashes
Anywho's, just wanted to share a recent purchase I made about a week or two ago via White Rabbit Press. I bought another CECIL McBEE handbag along with eyelashes and an iPhone 4 case, coz you know, I totally love CECIL McBEE!

I got the case on sale for only 980JPY!! So happy ^__^ The lashes were 1,050JPY while the handbag was 5,985JPY.

12 October 2011

I think about it everyday.


I really need to escape and be on my own. My head is looming up with lots of random thoughts of guilt, anger, annoyance and random spurs of sadness.

I need time out.

11 October 2011

Unpretty side of me



When I'm angry or annoyed, I kind of stay annoyed for like a couple of hours or just within that day. But when I feel like someone is trying to attack me, that's when I'm raging and venting for the next couple of days because I just really need to get it out of my system. =.=" is anyone else like that too?



But when I vent, I know I can say harsh and demeaning things...well I'd boldly say that I actually come off as a bitch. Even my boyfriend is like "Why do you care? Do you even hear yourself?


But at the same time, I don't want to be known as "the bitch", I don't want people to think I'm an angry child all the time or talk shit. Not to be arrogant or vain, I am actually one of the nicest people you could ever meet. No Internet creeper/stalkerism intended. Not to mention, when I start bitching I actually feel guilty for saying such things, but at the same time it's a relief because I get it all off my chest.

Makeup session

Hey beautiful people!

Before I move on with pictures, steps and tips...I wanted to do a little tribute to the man behind Apple, Steve Jobs. You created amazing gadgets that changed the lives of millions forever, and honestly your technology has converted me to an Apple lover! I love my iPhones, my iPad 2, my iPod 4th Gen and especially my iMac. Thank you for being a part of this world, it was cruel that it has taken you too soon <3 May you rest in peace and hopefully your legacy continues on forever with more amazing things.

My Apple collection!

So...I guess it's been a few days and I did mention that I was gonna post up my makeup steps from the photoshoot. It's not exactly a tutorial...I would totally suck at that but rather a transition? XD
I don't know I was bored and wanted something to blog about haha and...there's just gonna be loads of images of me =.=" apologies, I didn't want to be vain...I wanted to just give examples.

I'm becoming a shopaholic ㅠ ㅠ

Do you remember the CECIL McBEE handbag my awesome boyfriend bought for me? Well, it finally came in on Monday! I came home rushing from work only to find that...nothing had arrived. No notice of having to pick it up from the post office either, I slowly sank in to depression because I was so excited to finally receive it. Then I decided to check the EMS tracker and found that it actually HAD been delivered. My sneaky brother hid it under my bed =.=" Once I found my package I ripped it open without despair and feasted my eyes upon my new beautiful handbag!

I'm an awkward turtle.

여러분 안녕하세요!
I was about to write this post yesterday but..my boyfriend ended up hogging the computer space for his studies ㅠ_ㅠ

As you can see by my new banner, I went out yesterday arvo to do a park photoshoot with my boyfriend! I've been dying to do one but been either busy or too lazy to get all dolled and made up! But finally it's been done!

BEFORE
AFTER
Hmm, big difference isn't it? O_O Well anyways, for those that are curious about the makeup I used for the photoshoot, I will make sure to post up about it in the next couple of days!

Daylight Savings +1

Hey guys! How have you all been? Was it an awesome weekend?
Seems like all I'm able to do is blog during the weekends lol I guess that's when my life actually has any colour and activity. Although when I am at work I always think about blogging "issues" or debatable topics..so perhaps I'll start doing that whenever I can!

But anyways, the weather in Melbourne has been crappy lately. When I mean crappy...like really crappy. I fell sick prior to the crap weather and seems like I'm still sick ㅠ_ㅠ Since Monday throughout the week it has been pouring rain non-stop! Hell, there were even thunderstorms @_@ But I'm hoping the weather outtake on the following week will be heaps better *keeps praying*

I'm poor from online shopping.

Hey guys! How is everyone and how was everyone's weekend?
I had a nice relaxing weekend but...as usual the weekend is always too short and sadly I caught someone's cold and am at home resting. I thought I should blog since I have nothing better to do since I can't sleep and laze around like my fat blob boyfriend! Don't get me wrong, I still love him to bits =P

Me and the boyfriend
I actually spent quite a bit of money this weekend too >~< big hole in my pocket!! I purchased my flight tickets to Sydney for the Kpop Music Fest along with Sophy's, a Nikon S9100 Digital Camera and my lovely boyfriend spoilt me with a CECIL McBEE handbag!

Julie's 21st !

How was everyone's weekend?

I seriously didn't do much but I was hell busy and dead tired. I had my mother's birthday on Thursday night where she only wanted to simply go out and eat at KFC as a family haha she's so adorable!
What was more epic was when my brother uploaded a picture of my mum on facebook wishing her a happy birthday, pic below.

LOL happy birthday to my mum!

What I hate the most.

I’m sure it’s happened to you, well majority of the Asian people that I know have been through this and it shits you up the wall.

“Being compared to your friend or family friend member.”

Don’t you just hate that? Especially when you know you guys are on completely different levels. It stresses you out more because you know that person to a personal degree whereas your parents only know them exponentially, word of mouth sort of thing.

“Why can’t you do this? He/She can do it and you’re the same age”


“He/She achieved this award, why didn’t you get it too?”

A small piece of Melbourne

Hey everyone!

I felt like blogging again because I'm on my iPad and I found some pictures I had taken while I took a day off work, last Monday I think. I followed Bach up to The University of Melbourne...yes, my boyfriend goes there...I don't exactly know how or why either because he is such a nutcase .__."

Re-living my ulzzang days

Us with the birthday girl!
In my previous post I mentioned that I had Sok's 21st to attend. Unfortunately, I didn't take any photos, there were already professional photographers hired as well as a few other people who brought their DSLR so...I just couldn't have been bothered, plus my flash ran out of batteries :( Well, I did take photos...but of myself and with my boyfriend LOL I know, a bit sad but taking selca's pretty much made me realise how much I missed my ulzzang-wannabe days!


10 September 2011

La Weekend Post!

So, what has everyone been up to? I haven't been up to much despite being quite busy, and watching dramas. Seems like the only time I can relax!

Today Bach, my awesomest boyfriend, took me shopping to Southland! I was on the lookout for two dresses since I have Sok's 21st birthday at Springvale International Reception and Julie Au's 21st, which is at another function hall. So both would need to be a formal/cocktail dress style.

Drama Addict: 49일

The drama that has currently got me in and over my head is a Korean drama called "49 Days".


This is the first kdrama that I've watched without even knowing the cast, I seem to have a favouritism when it's a hot male lead or an actress I like. I have yet to finish it, I'm only halfway but it's so good! Usually with any kind of Kdrama I am able to predict the plot...just because they are so predictable. Seriously, how are they not? Plus, these actors know how to act. 


7 September 2011

여러분! 어서세요 !

So, I've decided to join back up with Blogspot/Blogger since all my friend's are on here and things seem a lot easier to keep track of in comparison to Blog.com!

I'll have this place cleaned up, spick and span with a gorgeous layout...once I've figured out what I want XD in the meantime, you can read about my world and see it through my photography!

Till then, have a B E AUTIFUL day <3
