Lacy Cat Princess

Oh, I'm super happy. I have a new co-ord, finally. I've been too shy to wear lolita lately, but with colder weather and Halloween coming up, I planned a spooky-ish coordinate which will mark the first time I will be wearing black! *^^* I find it really weird for me to wear lolita without a wig... but I haven't picked up my wig from my friend yet. Maybe the pink wig isn't a good idea? Maybe I should fix the Gabalnara one and wear that, or just default back to the Prisila wig I always wear?

I managed to score a low price on a new 2013 AP JSK~ "Lacy Princess"! So I'm suuuper thrilled to pair that dress with my Antique BeasT bat/cat ear headdress and Grimoire cat tights. We'll have to see how things go, I'm not sure where I will be wearing this coordinate yet but hopefully to school? Or something. 

Sigh, I have homework due next week... I really don't want to do that! But I must get started. If only I didn't have so much work... I don't really want to work but I need money to support my hobbies and maintain my lifestyle... but I should really be focused on studying.

Anyway~~ Can't wait to test out my lacy cat princess coordinate~~!!!

New Leaf Update

Protecting myself from the sun with my leafy parasol!

Greetings, all! After a tiring day of work, when I finally get home and have a chance to unwind, I love to play some Animal Crossing: New Leaf. I love how the game is essentially continuous in that there is never a shortage of things to do. My house is incomplete, as is my town. I thought I'd write about some updates that have been happening in the town of Yu'Shan!

Well, for starters... I've been too lazy to ferry over to the tropical island, so I've been farming perfect fruit and selling it off at Shan's town. I have also been pillaging her town's perfect apples. (ᅌᴗᅌ* ) I think perfect apples are more beautiful-looking than perfect oranges... /// Shhh!

Anywho, Mira moved into town! She is a cheery bunny in a superhero-esque outfit. I believe her design is based off Sailor Venus (Mirako derived from Minako). I don't know how I feel about her yet, so whether I'll keep her in my town or not remains to be seen. She's quite cute though.

Visiting my pink rococo-themed house! ♡

I mailed Ribbot a Starry Night Tee, and the next day I couldn't believe he was actually wearing it! For some reason, I have an affinity for Frog villagers.

I like Ribbot because his name is incredibly "pun-ny", and I like how the name suits the character. When he first moved in I thought he looked super scary... but having a robot bodyguard for a villager doesn't seem too bad! I mean, what's one more frog. No other cute villagers are moving in as of yet, anyway!

My two little froggies.

Well, sorry for the rambling and~~ hope we can play together sometime!!!
(❁ ´◡` ❁)*✲゚*

Too cute!!

Pygmalion II

For English class, I have to analyze a poem and write an essay about it. Naturally, I chose a poem relating to the Greek myth "Pygmalion". Galatea was a sculpture turned into a woman by the gods. And she never asked for it and resents Aphrodite a bit, because why didn't the goddess of beauty just make Pygmalion fall in love with a regular woman?
Lately even before Pygmalion finishes his breakfast, he rushes to his new sculptures to see if they also have been brought to life. Wow... what a curse. Aphrodite gives a mortal what he wants, and this just encourages selfish human behaviour, no appreciation... Just wanting more and more, a greediness... But oh, I suppose Galatea does find it fascinating to be alive.
I analyze it as... A human longing for an impossible goal or wish, and once it has been granted... Humans just move onto the next wish or goal... No appreciation... just wanting more. And this can hurt others... I suppose~
Need to convert these scattered thoughts into a real essay, soon...

“Galatea”            by Katherine Solomon
He never aske me how I’d feel about it.
Of course they never do. It’s true,
his adoration rew more from the milky
ivory than the curves of my form:
a deep flutter—though it was still
hard to tell if the warmth was the warmth
of his gaze, from his hands
when he put the mallet down and ran
them over my emerging
self, or if it was that spot
of godhood, present
even in the mutest matter.

O Aphrodite. Why
didn’t you just touch his eyes
when some fairly comely maiden passed—
and spare me all this pain
in my joints, my heart? With life
you gave me death, and growing
old and old and old. And lately,
even before he breaks
his fast, he rushes past me,
hoping this will be the day he’ll see
a trembling begin
under the sculptor’s cloth
again. My hands, offering
the morning bread, stumble
in his wake. But, oh!
The colours of dawn. How they move
across my living arms.

The Time Is Now

The time is almost noon, and I sit in my living room sipping on a warm cup of darling darjeeling, one of La Petite Cuillère's signature house blends. (I may have brewed the cup too strong for my own taste.) In any case, I have work soon, but I am feeling lethargic and my mind is wandering everywhere.

Everyone has secrets, don't they? Deep and dark, we don't want anyone else to know, and sometimes they are buried so deep within ourselves we forget we even had them. Until they resurface, somehow. Reflection. (Sometimes I think I'm a very strange creature.)

I can't really describe where I am in life. I am cheerful, but I'm not wearing a mask to hide anything. I really am starting to feel content with life, and how things are, but I am also always striving for improvement. I think this sort of contentedness comes with age... or maturity.

We all have to build a strong inner pillar, like Sprout Tower in Pokemon Gold & Silver. (Don't worry, I also laugh at the geekiness of my own examples.)

That way, no matter what outside circumstances may occur, this doesn't shake us or UNROOT us (Ha, get it? Bellsprout pun) from who we really are and where we want to be.

I know who my friends are and I know who really cares about me, but I am still going to put myself out there and give others a chance to know me, too. There are different levels of bonding and friendship. Some friends may only be superficial friends who will not be there in our times of need, and that's okay. Maybe we wouldn't want that person present anyway.

I'm just thinking... perhaps the world is a negative place because humans are naturally drawn to cynicism. Like a blossoming flower, I think I am blooming away from it all. I want to drift away from negativity.

I want my cake and, I want to eat it too
I don't care what they say about me
I never listen to anyone.

Every human's greatest wish is to be known. Truly, truly known, and accepted by someone they care about and feel connected to. This is the deepest level of intimacy, and I would imagine a lot of people do not even come close to scratching the surface of "knowing" their other half or those around them.

Does anyone even really know themselves? I find myself trying harder and harder to live in the present, striving to become more connected to this world and my own body.

A lot of people are afraid to let themselves be vulnerable and hurt by others, and this is OK. Your brain is biologically wired to defend you, protecting you from threats and harm -- just like in prehistoric times. The difference is, in present times, your brain still doesn't realize sad emotions and vulnerability won't kill you. Still, the brain does a wonderful job in putting up walls and defences to numb us to situations that may end up hurting us... but, in putting up this subconscious defence... this can create a serious block when trying to find that level of connection (that feeling of being known) to someone else.

I am slowly practicing on how to slow down my thoughts, accept compliments more easily, shrugging off negativity, and living life how I want to and following my own beliefs and values.

I got my nails done today~ This is my September~November set. (─‿‿─)v

I love the flowers, and the ring finger being pink with the pearl bow and coloured jewel in the center~

I was originally planning to get white nails with the ring finger covered in large sparkles, but when I arrived at the salon I picked this charming design instead. I think it's absolutely fabulous! White is so classy. *:・゚✧

I think it's really sweet of everyone who appreciates my style. I admit, I am the type of gal who enjoys shopping for pretty dresses and high heels, and I also love getting my hair and nails done. Make-up as well... I'm just an all-around girly-girl. Heh--☆

Oh, and I just want to say, I love David Guetta's music! That type of music is my absolute favourite and always gets me pumped!!! Song behind the cut. :3

It's my blog, I can do what I want~~ -- The one and only time I will reference one of Miss Cyrus's songs. Ha!

Granted, this was back when i was still in high school.
Even if this is completely taken out of context, and the German phrases used in this piece of work are not accurate and... GOD, but I wish I could write again.
I used to always steal Final Fantasy characters to write about, huh?
Why am I suddenly feeling like Cloud--err, Kraut, who lost his best friend?
Probably, I really am that way...


I told myself I would stop doing my nails, but that totally didn't happen. I think... I just love having gorgeous nails far too much to give them up. ♡

I got really lazy posting my nail sets... So for the months of July and August, I didn't post any photos. July's set was one I didn't like very much; I didn't like how the girl did them:

June~July '13 nail set

What's new? Well, nothing really. The usual work and school... Urgh...

I actually find it amusing that many men have complimented my nails far more than women. I wonder if this is simply because my nails are a new and interesting sight for them to see, or if they are thinking some impure intentions? Cry, haha. It's hard being a girl.

I bought a denim vest and also a Wilfred dress from Aritzia. The denim vest I wanted to buy for a while now, to match with my white lace dress. But as for the Wilfred dress... I'm not sure if I will keep it, but most likely yes. And bring that dress to get altered at the tailor's~~~ the sleeves are a bit long.

OH, AND... I am going to my first-ever hockey game this Wednesday. My coworker, "Vincent", is taking me! And my manager "Cloud" is taking the surly "Cait Sith". Ha-ha, should be a lot of fun... I can't believe how lucky they were to win those tickets.

Well, chat again soon~ I seem to be on a break from lolita fashion, and more into dressing for fall/winter fashions that are more mainstream... We'll see what happens!

Witch Hunt

"The sad tale of a Prince and a Witch"

My best friend in New Leaf is a frog named Henry... (⌒_⌒;)
Well, at least I got my beloved Hair Bow Wig!!!
The next item on my wishlist is "K.K. Sonata"!

Just Joshin' You

I always get distracted. I'll be planning to sit and do some writing when I find myself staring at my phone, or drawn away by some game, and then I can't tear away.

I finished Joshua's secret happy ending in "Be My Princess". The story was all right; I'm unhappy I ended the story so soon. (ノ´д`) I mean there's always Prince Wilfred's storyline to move onto, but... I'm just unmotivated, because of course, Joshua.

And let's face it, in my world, all Joshuas are so cool. Positive association with Joshuas, ha-ha. (The following post will contain a high level of fangirling from myself.)

Lately I have been having many thoughts run through my mind but I never record them down. I guess because I never have time. (It's always about the eternal rat-race, isn't it?)

Sometimes it's hard to convert thoughts to words.

I ponder a lot of things whenever I'm alone, things that I never write down because when I'm driving or at work or eating, there never seems to be a pen or paper around, and when there is I'm always unsure exactly what I mean to say.

I've just realized a lot of things about human beings, and the world in general, during my time working for telecommunication companies and at school and interacting with other people and even on the cursed social networks we are addicted to (Facebook).

People are complicated creatures, negative in nature, and we love to hate things, put others down, compete and compare ourselves with others, etc.etc. I find all of this superbly childish; yet everyone engages in negative thinking and bashing other people because this is something supposedly ingrained in our nature.

Women nowadays... are trashy (please see: Miss Cyrus @ the VMA awards). And the men? Childish and ignorant. "There is no such thing as being a gentleman anymore." Where is the self-respect for ourselves and others? Graffiti upon the face of my blog post. However, there are some that believe differently, seeing the objectification of women to be "freeing" and capable of making some women feel "beautiful". While I don't understand that mindset, I accept that there are many ways in which a person can choose to live their lives, and I do not oppose their choices (but I would not choose that style for myself).

I was driving while listening to my G-Dragon CD... (I had my ipod stolen, but that is besides the point as I always collected and listened to CDs regardless) and it was his Heartbreaker/Shine A Light live CD from 2009. I remember people hated on the song, bashed him for copying one of Flo Rida's songs... and you know what? The guy, my man GD, his response was to freakin' release a remix of that same song FEATURING FLO RIDA. I just found that to be such a kick-in-the-face for all the haters.


Words to live by.

Animal Crossing + Life

I've been trying to blog more but I never seem to have any time for myself. Hardly any time. Each day is filled with gruelling work, and now school has started. Class again tomorrow. I'm going to polish myself up and get going~~ <3 No low goals for me, gotta shoot for that A+ and look like a star doing it. ;)

Today I met a nice girl from work. She was very sweet and talkative, and she works at the Lego Store in Oakridge Centre. We exchanged contact information and perhaps we will meet up for coffee/BBT and study together. I don't know yet, but since my life has been a stagnant pool of water lately, it couldn't hurt to deviate from the normal routine. Just been hard to find time to do that...

On the AC:NL note, I finally got my dear little princess Crown!

Spent a whopping 1,200,000 bells on this baby!
I also managed to get the special Afternoon Tea Set! *love*

I re-designed my town flag to Kyary Mameshiba~~

My frog villager Henry asked to buy the BB shirt I actually bought for Shan... LOL! He even self-invited himself to my home, and then proceeded to gift me a painting (even though it turned out to be a fake). What a generous villager. He's always sweet to me! Looks aren't everything after all I suppose! And who knows, maybe he will turn into a charming prince sometime! ;)

Lastly, K.K. Waltz makes an awesome music box tune.

Do you play Animal Crossing: New Leaf? Please add me!!! Let's play together!


My dream item is Gracie's "Hair Bow Wig".

Sunday, September 1, 2013


A couple months back, I was really into working out, eating healthy and regular visits to the gym. For some reason, that active streak went horribly off-track and I stopped doing all of that... until very recently, I decided I would try and pull myself back into healthy eating.

I went to the grocery store last night with my mom, brother and Shan to buy ingredients. I'm planning to cook more often and pack lunch to bring to work (win-win situation, save money AND eat healthier). Basically, my diet consists of a lot of veggies, chicken, fish, and occasionally pork. I'm not too big a fan of beef, to be honest... And lamb / duck is pretty hard to cook right. For veggies, I really like taiwanese cabbage, snow pea shoots, kale, and lotus root. But I should eat more of carrots, cucumbers, etc. anyway...

Yams are not my favourite, but I've been substituting my carbs with yam and quinoa. Eating healthy is pretty straight-forward, but I can't help gorging when I get a large portion of delicious food. Food is a bigbig weakness for me... which is sad, because I also want to slim down and tone up.

Still didn't stop me from buying a bunch of gourmet cup noodles, ha-ha.

Hope I can actually carry through with this!
