Just another ordinary date night with Zach. We used to do this a lot, went to mall and just hang, walk around and have dinner together but it became quite rare. Now we mostly have movie dates and dine-in dinners are mostly for occasions only. So we decided to have our date night for the very busy April that I don't think we will be able to find another free night with our midterm exam & assignments plus me having dance practices for almost every night for April! What a busy month!


Our Ootn :)

*randomthingsiaskzachtodo :3.. Have you watched Captain America 2? I dont think i still need to say this, it is, or course, a MUST watch. So hwattt kayy *shyyyy... Him & Black Widow make a good match don't you think? I totally ship them :3

We went to Secret Recipe cuz i wanted to have cake! Yayyy... Thought the branch closed down at first but it actually moved to where Old Town used to be, so bigger space for Secret Recipe now! ***It's been a long time since i came to The Spring Mall, now usually spends more time at CityOne thanks to GSC~



Zach with his Spaghetti Bolognese.

My banana choc cake :3

So imma gonna a little complaining now before ending this post. Currently hating on my course. Business sucks. Hating Finance subjects. Why did i take double major?? Honestly im not doing very well in my studies because i don't like what im taking & partly because of laziness. If only i can take solely accounting subjects! Am i weird for like doing accounts? It's stressful at times but yes i like accounting but i hate ALL other business subjects besides it! Sometimes i think i should have taken engineering instead because i love numbers lol. But thinking that business is a more stable occupation(?), im not regretting so much. Just hoping i will come to like my course eventually :(.. 4am, bed timeeee!



April, please be good to me :) xx

Making of Asuna Cosplay

& finally my Asuna cosplay complete! A very very very delayed cosplan! Will be sharing my sword making process and a very easy tutorial of making my Asuna's shoes today :)

Costume bought online with self adjustments.


Asuna's Shoes EASY tutorial!

You can actually buy professionally made Asuna shoes online but i think it's too expensive & plus its fun trying to make things yourself! :D... Before i started on the shoes, i googled for tutorial but i didnt really find anything i like. Some are messy & some are just too complicated. So i thought of a way (a very very easyyyyy way) to make them myself~ xD

 1. Find a pair of shoes similar to Asuna's.

 2. With eva foam, draw out the shape and size you want (use shoes for reference).

3. Cut it out. You can use different colours eva foam, it doesn't matter because we are going to spray it later~

4. Spray~

5. Super glue it together.

Then

Tadaaaaaa~~ Don't know whether my tutorial is any good, but this is how i made mine. Hope it helps :)


NEXT! Sworddddddd making process.

No tutorial cuz i wasnt really sure what i was doing during the process. Just-go-with-it me xD
*Ugly draft.




Tadaaaaaa. It looks okay form afar but BADDD up close! Not good at this but it's nice to challenge something new :)... Cosplay friend was like wtffff?!??! with the materials i used lolllllll. Amateur here with no help D: ... & my sword is currently falling apart after the Astro event i attended!


Have the urge to have a photoshoot of my Asuna!! Before my sword really fall apart @@


Suddenly feel like re-watching SAO! *w* xx

Anime Recommendations

Some recommendation of anime from me! :D... If you're an anime fan, you probably watched all of this already lol... I usually don't read the summary before watching an anime because i think is very spoiler-ish & always higher/ lower your expectation for the anime, but i included them here for preference for those who are interest :D



Nagi No Asukara


My personal fav this season! I think the story is very interesting & i think that this anime should get noticed more. & the art of an anime is always a big PLUS PLUS for me. My friend said that the genre is too shoujo-ish (Shoujo: Style/ genre that target female audience) but it think it's suitable to everyone. The anime is about people of the sea and people of land (dont really know how to summaries, lolll).. LOVE Chisaki x Tsumugu! Gonna restrain myself from giving out spoilers! ><.. Highly Recommended!

Summary:
Long ago, humanity lived in the sea. But the humans who longed for the land left the sea behind. They cast aside the special raiment they'd been given by the sea god that let them live in the ocean. The thinking of the sea humans and the land humans became as separate as the places they lived, and as countless time passed, they forgot they were once one people. This will change as the land-dwelling human Tsumugu Kihara befriends four children who live in a village at the bottom of the sea.

Status : Ongoing, currently 24 episodes.





Free!



I think people that know me/ follow me knows that i love Free! very much! It only have 12 episodes but the story is very good & love the art! & who doesnt love topless guys with abs?? lollllll *shyyyyyy

Summary:
The story revolves around Nanase Haruka, a boy who has always loved to be immersed in water, and to swim in it. Before graduating from elementary school, he participated in a swimming tournament along with his fellow swimming club members, Tachibana Makoto, Hazuki Nagisa and Matsuoka Rin. After achieving victory, each of the boys went their separate ways. Time passed, and in the middle of their uneventful high school lives Rin appears and challenges Haruka to a match, showing Haruka his overwhelming power. Not wanting it to end like this, Haruka, gathers together Makoto and Nagisa once again and brings a new member named Ryuugazaki Rei to create the Iwatobi High School Swimming Club in order to defeat Rin.

Status : Complete, 12 episodes



My fav 2 boys, Rin & Haruka! #fangirl *w*.. Heard that there will be a season 2, cant wait! 


Nisekoi


A well known anime that received high rating. It's a romance comedy that i think everyone will enjoy. Nisekoi is a very fun anime to watch and the storyline is very exciting :D

Summary :

As a child, Raku Ichijo made a secret promise with his childhood sweetheart, keeping a pendant as a memento while his love took the key. He dreams of one day meeting his past love, but years later, reality smashes his hopes when Chitoge Kirisaki accidentally knees him in the face. Though Raku's a normal high schooler, his family heads the notorious yakuza gang the Shuei-Gumi faction. And he's dragged into family affairs when he's forced into a relationship with Chitoge, the daughter of a rival gang's boss.

Status : Ongoing, currently 10 episodes.



Psycho Pass


Watched recently and loveeeeeee. It's not my usual genre of anime as u can see from my anime recommendation above. It's more of the shounen, action genre that you need to do little more reading of the subtitles lol. I loved it so i highly recommend it :)

Summary :
The series takes place in the near future, when it is possible to instantaneously measure and quantify a person’s state of mind and personality. This information is recorded and processed, and the term “Psycho-Pass” refers to a standard used to measure an individual’s being. The story centers around the “enforcement officer” Shinya Kougami, who is tasked with managing crime in such a world.

Status : Complete, 22 episodes.
Loving Kougami ♥   *w*



So many anime lined up for me! NO TIMEEEE! So far behind & a lot to catch up! More assignments coming my way, mid term soon & dance competition (maybe?). Im also trying to catch up with Korean Dramas, current fav Emergency Couple [MUST WATCH!]. No time for everything!! x.x

New Page


Hello, a short update here. I just created a new page on Facebook. It will be mainly a cosplay page where i will share my cosplay photos. Even with all those cosplay websites, i think facebook is still the best place for easy sharing (bad photo quality though). It's just very simple, easy to browse & organized. 

I think it's better because I can reach out to more people (maybe?) since i cant accept everyone's friend request or else my friend list will explode. Also, only people who are interested will get updates & people who are not interested wont have pop ups on their homepage. So i'll post more of my cosplay related things on the page & less on my personal profile. :)

I hesitated a bit when i want to create this page thinking "why create a page when your not a famous person" "no one is going to like your page" "your cosplays are not good enough" but those are not important right? I wanna share my work with people that have the same interest as me. I like to follow cosplayers and admire their cosplays all the time (im quite a stalker-ish person *bewareee* lolll) & maybe someone will enjoy my cosplays too? :)

I a newbie & everyone starts somewhere. Because this is what i love, i will continue & i will try to improve.

Valentine's Day 2014

 Morning surprise, woke up with roses in my face :3

Aren't they lovely? Loveee ... Valentine's day this year was on the same day as Chap Goh Meh (the last day of Chinese New Year) & Zach had family dinner that night so we postponed our Valentine's dinner to the night after. Waited for him & we went for a movie after his dinner.

 Casual look for movie date 



Zach always chooses "love story" movie for us to watch on Valentine's day. I think there's no need for that but it's sweet of him :)... & so we watched Endless Love. I rate it a 6-7/10.

 The next night, we went for our belated Valentine's dinner date 

Look & outfit of the night. More girl-ish look

 Zach took me to a newly opened restaurant, Portico. 


 Love the heart shape folded napkin ♥... & also the man laaaa lol








 The food was served quite fast despite the number of people there.

Environment : 8/10
Food: 7/10

Happy girl is happy :3

This was our 4th Valentine's day together. Thank you again for another wonderful Valentine, im so happy that i can spend it with you. :)
