What I did today

Managed to get some reading done this morning!xD

Have started reading this before and after having not read it for so long I just ditched it for something else. Lol, well, this morning I felt I was in the mood to read this book so I picked it up again. And started reading from the beginning.:P
The story is wonderful, talks about this jew who owns a furniture store during the Nazi era and how the changes in Germany are affecting him, his social status, and his relationship with the people around him. How this book is going to turn out I have yet to discover.


Woke up relatively early today for a weekend.n_n;

Prepared lunch instead of ordering food in.

Thought I'd use this plate for a change.

And this is what I had for lunch today..

Nothing fancy, just pasta and whatever was in the fridge.xD


In the afternoon I decided to clean my room with some Japanese drama running in the background.

This box was so heavy!>_<

It's where I keep the brochures/guides/maps/free publications from my travels.

Err, a bunch of random stuff which you get for free from everywhere.

See that packet of tissue and wipes? [above photo]xD


I label them like this..

and this..

We have this habit of going to places repetitively, so I write the dates too.

Whatnots from my trip to Japan.

Did not bother to pull them out because it's already tucked in pretty neatly.>_<

Stuff I picked up from here and there.

And I even kept this huge Squid-strip packing.:P

Bought that in the Glico store in Osaka.


Was a pretty cool day today.. foggy and drizzling.

Took this photo in the morning..

Photo quality was bad so I made it look like this [err, which made it even worse?].>_<


Oh, and was planning to study today but it seems I was not able to do that.T_T

Haha, will probably study tomorrow.xD

Thought I should follow this schedule: MONDAY - French, TUES & WED - Spanish, THURS & FRI - Japanese. I wonder if I'd be able to do that??*_*

Have not been reviewing my French for a long time but it seems I have not totally forgotten.>_< But my Spanish... I have forgotten to conjugate the simplest of verbs. Very bad shape, so I thought I should start from the first book again! [although when I read/listen I can understand.]. As for Japanese, [and having learned from my previous mistake] I am studying it at least once a week.n_n;

Although.... how long can I keep up with this?? :P

Insta-Curry. いただきます!^_^

I finally got the chance to use the Instant Curry I bought a few weeks back!:D

I popped it into the microwave (as instructed on the package).

Ack~~ couldn't wait to open it.

and here it is. [It smelled heavenly.^_^]

You have no idea how hard it was to keep my from digging in as I take these photos...:P

And a closer look...can you almost smell it?



Here is a look at my anime calendar..

And another...

[Tomorrow is the 21st-- the day I turn a year older. Not something to look forward to eh? xD Lol.]


Last week, I bought this little bunny pouch.

And it is perfect for bento boxes.:D

The bunny bento box I bought last year.

The pouch can fit all these.:D

How it looks with stuff inside..


Bought a polka-dotted notebook last week, thought it was really nice.

It has an elastic band to keep the pages in place.

Perfect to write on with my Miffy pen.

Ah. My weakness for cute little things.

It's a huge notebook too = more stuff to write.xD

It's available from Paperchase.

On the back it also includes this clear flap to hold a couple of cards and whatnots.

This is one of the photos I took of Tokyo.:D [see the Rainbow Bridge and Odaiba?:P]

Oh, I wish I could go to Japan again soooon.


It's been ages since I last touched the games on my psp! [due to lack of time, and also because when I start playing I can't stop and play for hours endlessly.]

But I am still far from completing the game.. I have only just started on this game.


This is the Gosick novel-version. #1. Have not started yet. Lol.

Too much text, Haha. My mind should be completely clear as I read.

I think I will try one page first. Although I reckon I will spend more time flipping through my dictionary than actually 'reading'.

But it is worth a try.:P


Have started to download a new anime called 'Ikoku Meiro no Croisée'.

The illustration is incredible, and the main character is soooo cute too, it looks much like Gosick, which I also loved when I first saw it.

Snacking and watching Anime

Nibbling on some cheese while watching anime..;D


A look at some stuff I got recently:

Decided to get a new pair of slippers for the bathroom..

Bought an Italian dictionary (as it was on sale..xD), and a neat-looking calculator..


Snacks I can't live without:

It came in packs of two..

And there's this other flavour that I want to try.. Super Butter!


Well, I'm off to watch some anime now! :D

Random stuff from the past couple of days

Decided to get some studying done earlier this afternoon.

My spanish textbook in the background (and French, upper right).

Wrapped my Spanish dictionary in pink.^_^

And this is all my other stuff in the same shade.


Though I'd post a photo of the sculpy I made last month,

Not quite final yet, but I cannot wait to post the photo.n_n;

Still have to add a couple of finishing touches.


Was sewing a bag the other day when I decided to make myself some tea.

Wanted to try something different so I picked:

something that looked like this, with a bunch of funny ingredients mixed together in one bag.

And it tasted just like it said it would.

But not exactly my cup of tea, this flavour.

I think I will pick up some Earl Grey next time.
