Night Out

yesterday was my first night out!! And it was weird and wonderful. :)
I have to say...
it was nothing like i expected.
i mean i didn't know how to expect really, first of all haha!!
but anyway...
it was a dark and rainy night! literally!
and we walked and walked and walked! (and saved bus fares) I actually enjoyed the walking soo much! taking life slowly, moment by moment...
we went skating first!
i was really really mad at someone because she was the only one who wanted to go and it was so so expensive!! more expensive than my dinner!! but she huffed off and paid for her skating. so we all had to follow. i mean, everyone knows you can't pay to have friends right??? geesh.
 in the end it was okay but not worth $7!!
afterwards we headed to the mall next door. still sales haha!! us girls swarmed to the clothes sales while the guys stood at the door haha. poor guys. didn't care though, geeze, I'm a girl and all my clothes are hand me downs. I should at least have the right to browse. craziest of all, at one shop everything was $5!!!!!! and it was an expensive, fashion shop!!!  my friend and i wanted to buy...but lineups soo long!! urrgh even leggings, of all colours, were $2.50!!
the best part of the trip was probably the dinner though...after skating and mall and walking 6 blocks we were starving!! we went to a new, asian maid cafe. the waitresses there were really cute! pink/black sailor outfits. we ordered our asian meals. funny, because i eat asian meals all the time. i asked for a sandwich, some of the only non-asian choices, but the maid said only for lunchtime. too bad! the atmosphere at the cafe was sooo private and peaceful; i loved it. ;) Plus we got free tea as a part of the promotion~a caucasian guy said it was too sweet but i don't really think so!! it's just like asian coco cola. i hate coke!! but love bubble tea!! haha :)
im not going to lie...i am cheap, i don't really get money, so i ordered the cheapest meal...$5.20. it turned out actually very big!! so big i couldn't finish it haha :) but it was very good, hot, and even came with spiced eggs and generous amounts of meat and noodles. i was almost scared because it only said "dry noodle with meat sauce" on top~i thought it was only that. but no, worth my money. plus, the free drinks were at least $4!! so, balances out with the extra money spent on skating. The drinks were so amusing too! we ordered black, apple, lychee, and strawberry green/black teas...they were delicious and wacky colours and fitted the modern, fun atmosphere! ahh...what a cozy place, when i go on my first date i will bring someone there haha :)
after that we went to another mall..this time an asian mall...everywhere is chinese new years things!!! seeing the familiar sights made me joyful. and eating food so late had made me everything else is a blur and so slooow...
we missed so many busses we had to stay out until 10, my i got very worried my parents would get mad...because it was my first time out so late...but no one else cared so i was stuck in bad situation. but not my fault i am so protected and so think this way!!
we ended up waiting in a casino lobby. it was sooo weird and i hated the place. everyone there so old and ugly and rich and wasting life. i said if i ever wasted myself like that, shoot me! not really but i would never use their flat escalator!! the horror!! no wonder why everyone there so fat and old, they can't even walk on flat ground by themselves!!
which reminds me...
all my friends were wearing makeup expect me!!! D:
at this age...when you start wearing makeup...i know it's to impress...but obviously when you are all friends you don't need it made me unfortable. i want to tell them, you don't need makeup! you all so gorgeous au natural!! but i didn't. because maybe that's only how i think. i want to be gorgeous without makeup first. then beyond gorgeous when i do have it on. not impress only when i have makeup. when we got home, i had a big talk with my mom about it. she thinks only old women should wear makeup so cover up their flaws from age and that young girls have nothing to hide...:)
and i basically went to bed when i got home...tired tired tired but happy at the interesting day. :)
wouldn't mind going to maid cafe with my parents even, it's so private!! but too expensive for the entire family la. ;) the price would be like eating at a buffet without as much food...
PS Can't wait til new year's and my mom's birthday...what will i give her???
Sorry no pictures...cause i wasn't allowed to bring my not-waterproof and expensive camera in the rain!
xox, hihihi ^^

hi guys!
say hi to my new necklace ^^
it's only the 100th of many that i made for the season ^^
it's still cold here! brrr. it used to be a jingle bell for christmas but now it's an ~icicle~
the princess style chain was $2 (expensive?!?) from daiso (my fav, cheap store heehee, just my right price point)
however it came with nothing (sadly! it was actually a eyeglasses chain??) so I attach whatever i want to it when i feel like it. 

~never melting icicle!!~
 it's only an empty pencil lead container! but i love novelty stationaries so i kept it!~actually i just found it, i love finding things! cause i am so good at losing things probably heehee
today i was going to visit the shoe store one more time because i thought maybe i would buy $5 flats for special occasions (i really only have running shoes...) but too tired/lazy/cold after the pool for school...maybe tomorrow!
will you make a never melting icicle pendant?~tell me what else you would make a necklace with!
may your spirits and dreams never melt too~~!!
xox, hihihi ^^

i confess...
ive never gone out at night before!! except with family and only a few times that I can remember recently.
AND I have just been offered the chance!!!!
You much my parents would freak out if they knew...and how they will say I am too young, blahblahblah...but, who wants to be an adult without even going out once with just friends???
Yes I have been feeling jealous lately. ^^ but jealousy anchors me to reality so quite happy actually.
i just told about everyone i thought would appreciate about the shoe sale and everyone says, GO BUY $5 heels you need them~~and hey, i will buy a pair for myself right now too ty!!
(lol...even my mom was regretful of not buying the $5 rocketdogs...and she doesn't spend money on clothes...)
oh~~what do I do???
just going out of school today to participate in a school environment talk at another school with friends made me so happy!! i love going out!! it makes me feel a part of the world and like im making a difference! not to my own selfish needs.
grrr even dumber I keep thinking about those someone else will buy them and not me even though they look so good on me. :(
ahaha but also making me happy, a different friend said we should go window shopping for dresses etc. together. i say yes~!! what girl does not like window shopping. it's not the buying of the dress...its the knowing u look fabulous in one and even better no one else can afford it anyway haha...:)

good mood

does anyone else check their horoscope? i never did until this week. but its fun~funny~!
tomrrow i know im going shopping with mom but i probably won't be able to hide my camera with me because its only in town! so small oppurtunities, but do not underestimate smallness~haha. ^^ im not very hopeful that i actually grew .5 cm, it was probably because i was wearing socks~oh well, it was cold haha!!
anyways, in town, there is a very good waxer, that i love going to. i used to hate it because i didn't care about looks and it hurt but now it doesn't hurt anymore. instead, the slight stinging sensation is quite relaxing and its very nice to have someone pamper you by paying a small fee. ~now come on, pamper someone you love~it's worth it!!~~i can't wait to give all my friends the rings i made them~

lalala~im just so happy to see that there are still christmas lights up everywhere (bushes, trees, indoors in stores)! ok this was last week but oh well~~it's still nice! now i'll put it here and it'll never go away! 

wala~short post, hope you take my advice and treat someone you love~ 
now im going to run off to try and make an accessory~probably headband~waste my time haha. maybe ill show you if it works. maybe ill be too lazy and the minute i get off here i will read instead and have a warm shower with cinnamon gel. ^^
WHAT DO YOU DO TO PAMPER YOURSELF? (haha i really wanna i can pamper myself more haha)
xox, hihihi that i have my passport i really wanna go somewhere now!!

good advice ^^

hi lovelies!! ^^
almost two weeks into the new are your resolutions holding up? 
some of mine are...and others, aren't!! haha ^^must be good!
recently I came upon some really good advice. you ready?
first of all, stress is all your own making! it's entirely your decision whether to be stressed or not. see the article in the picture above (I snuck the picture in an optometrist waiting room heehee!)
therefore, i stepped into school monday morning with a care! whee...when you really try, it's so easy. don't let anything disrupt your flow because your flow is worth it!
secondly, I found this quote in a read-over-coffee newspaper:
"if you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow."-chinese epigram
the moment i read this i realized how true it was. so many fights with parents over simple misunderstandings! plus, when you are angry you tend to do your stupid things, like rip pictures apart or gorge yourself or whatever you do when you are mad. and most likely the things you do don't help anyone. im so glad i read this because it helped me avoid a stupid fight this morning that i can't even remember was about!
lastly, in the same newspaper i decided to read my horoscope. i dunno, do you guys read your horoscopes regularly? i don't, but this one rang so true i have to write it here!
"you may be more detached from your daily affairs than usual and you might want to step back and reflect on the overall course of your life. lucky numbers 6, 7, 18, 26, 43, 45) 7 is my fav number so i thought it must be lucky and true!! so i looked at the overall picture of my life and knew what to do. so, i was very glad that day. even if this is not your horoscope, take its advice and look at your life! ^^
One piece of advice i found out myself (i  bet u too and if not,) is to pamper yourself. after just a shower, some lotion, can make you feel refreshed. so, pamper yourself often! it's good for your body...and your spirit!!!
and do you read your horoscope? Do you know who writes them, anyway? Would it be the same if I looked at any newspaper?
lots of love, 
xox, hihihi ^^
PS. Look out for my oncoming tutorial...for leopard/kawaii nail art!!! ^^

winter earrings ^^

hi! what's this...?
it's my christmas present wrapping paper! :)

now that it's the new year...time to start showing off those statement making accessories to start the new year with a bang!
Haha, I actually don't wear any accessories usually except for memory-infused bracelets etc. :)
But I can't help but gape at all the jaw dropping creative accessories I see everyday.
I LOVE looking at jewelry and stuff I can't afford haha. 
So here is my free, and more environmentally friendly version. 
-wrapping paper or printed image
-piece of clear plastic big enough for your earring design (mine are teardrops) 
How could you just throw that huge clamshell into the garbage from your lunch/present/whatever without a second thought??? that's just too cruel...that clear plastic is free too...!! Never throw away money right? Now rescue that container from the garbage and make yourself a pair of earrings. 
-packaging tape
-scissors/exacto knife
-safety pin 
-earrings wires
-passion for fashion <3

Let's get started :)
1.  Cut out teardrop shapes from the clear plastic. Add a smaller teardrop cutout if you have an exacto knife. Make sure your teardrop shape can be covered completely by a strip of your tape.
2. Tape over your wrapping paper (hey christmas...Soo won't forget you. ;) Rub it firmly so the image will transfer.
3. Rip the tape carefully but firmly, so that some paper fibres and image transfers, but the page isn't completely ripped.
see...I was very gentle with the paper. :) The top bit's colour is still in full force because I didn't tape there. but the transfered to the tape! yayay By the way this was a printed image from a laser printer.
4. Now glue that transfered image onto your piece of plastic. 
5. Make a twin drop. ;) Now pierce a hole on the top with a safety pin and insert earring wires. :) Since my ears are not pierced (DAAAANG) I just clipped them on for show. ;)
If you liked this...please comment.
If you made me!! :) I'm jealous, pierced ears! ;) (actually i just dream about it...because it's fun to dream ;)
last but not least...;)

moosey  pair! reminds me of the winter weather and warm-y knits ;)
xox, hihihi <3
