January till November 2013

I’ve neglected this blog for sooo longggg.

As you can see, change of WordPress theme woooo~ I still want to make a banner, but I’ll er, figure that out some other day XD;

I’ve also added a picture of myself gasp!! It’s because I’ve finally gained confidence in myself haha never happening gotten a lucky shot of myself with decent sized eyes and a decent face shape LOL. That and the fact I’ve already posted a few rare shots of myself here and there, and I’m like ah, whatever.

Timeline-ish entry, with as much details as I can remember.

Oh and er, my keyboard is faulty. I can’t type “p” XD; it’s all copy and paste. Ahahaha.. oTL ;;;

Japan Loot Part 1 (Rori)

You know the usual. Come back from trip, you post photos of your loot.

Most of the time I fail to take pictures of my loot. This year for both of my trip to Japan and Hong Kong, I guai guai take pictures of my loot, but fail to post them due to laziness.

Now I guai guai post them at least even if I get too lazy to write my entries cough.

Handcarry + check in luggage for both of us

Handcarry + check in luggage for both of us

I think we handled this packing thing a lot better, but probably cus we just found out that ANA allows twice the usual baggage allowance hurhurhur. Next time if I ever sit ANA, I’m bringing two suitcases or something LOL.

Anyways, I only managed to sort out photos for my rori loot, so the first post will just be piccies of it. I’m quite surprised by my CC karma. While most of these things aren’t something I would die for, they are things that I’ve been wanting to try/have for a long while. So yey.

From left to right (links to random databases are on the items’ names if I can find them):

Angelic Pretty long sleeve Marching cutsew OP in navy – 8800 yen
For a long time, I really want to try something exactly like this, from the cut of the dress to the style. I’m really happy I found this. I don’t know about rori, but I would love to dress in a lot of red accents with this. I’ll be like some walking British flag or something LOL.

Alice and the Pirates Teufel von Hameln skirt in emerald – 9800 yen
I love gold accents, and I do like dark green shades. It’s natural I end up wanting a rori item in this colour scheme LOL. And I have been interested in a bit of an understated stripey look lately (ever since I got my understated stripey wallpaper room LOL) And it has pockets and an A-line cut. Buy!

Excentrique gold brocade skirt + matching corset – 5200 yen for skirt, 2300 yen for corset
I wanted a gold mini corset. I got it đŸ˜€ And then the skirt was cheap too. I take LOL.

Baby the Stars Shine Bright floral JSK in blue – 6800 yen
My preference for JSK cuts like these started with Baby surprisingly, considering that it doesn’t do much of these to begin with. This along with similar generic floral JSKs + the first edition of Stain Glass made me like Baby back then. Every time this is spotted in auctions, I always stop at the link and waver XD

Angelic Pretty Chess Chocolate Emblem Embroidery blouse in brown – 7800 yen
I want a brown blouse for my rori stuff, and finally finallllyyyyy I got it. Bonus: It’s chess choco! Perfect to match with my chess choco JSK!

Angelic Pretty Royal Chocolate crew socks in mint – 2500 yen

Innocent World Lidie OP in Black/Grey? (I can’t tell seriously) – 8800 yen
I don’t know what this series is until I did my research just a while ago, but I really want a dress like this for a loooong time too LOL. Something similar to the AP Marching OP. I don’t know if I have a thing for sailor collars or not, but to me I thought they look very modest and cute in a bit of a “school girl”-ish way, so I’ve really wanted to try wearing one. This was the cheapest among all the similar IW OPs scattered about in the various CCs!

Innocent World A-line skirt in bordeaux – 5800 yen
My dear MM skirt needs to take a break seriously. I’m getting way too fat for that, and if I wear it any more, either my stomach gets deformed, or the skirt busts. I think it’s time to find an alternative skirt for both of our sake LOL. This is seriously a good deal.

Mahou Atelier goodness

Rorona says hi. What's that you say? You're 28 years old?

It took me a lot of willpower not to get Atelier Rorona’s artbook with the shiny character designs and printed illustrations.

It took me twice the amount of willpower not to get Atelier Totori’s artbook with the shiny character designs and printed illustrations.

I rolled and died and whined nonstop when the 2-in-1 artbook featuring both Rorona and Totori with the shiny character designs and printed illustrations was Sold Out ):

Imagine my utter glee when I finally got my hands on the premium artbook featuring all 3 Rorona, Totori and Meruru in it. With the super shiny character designs and very very very expensive excellent print quality illustrations.

It’s the coke withdrawal.

Still waiting for my stuff to arrive so that I can start talking about happy stuff in my blog lol.

Significant happenings in my life:

I topped up for an iphone4s!

I figured it’s about time since the 3gs is getting very wonky. It keeps turning the volume up and down for no apparent reason, which scared me because I thought my headphones/sound system in the car had problems. And then there’s the huge lag + multiple crashes generally. My friends and I have been playing with Siri just for the novelty of it, and I guess Siri doesn’t understand Singaporean English lol. It understands us better if set to US English compared to UK English, but still not good enough. There have been a few amusing answers to our queries, but I think the funniest parts were all the mistranslations of our words.

I’m trying to cut down on my coke intake.

Gasp.

Exciting stuff in the future!

I splurged in my doll hobby

And boy am I excited. First, I’m expecting two in November, and both will need faceups which I never fail to delay. Next, two in my house are demanding makeup remover to get rid of their ridiculous faceups and get new ones; one is a eyelash-less boy with the makeup of a girl’s, and the other has black caterpillars for eyebrows with the most unsightly black stains on the nose and chin that would not come off.

Recently attended a very simple private doll meet and I have to say the experience was fun somehow even though we do the same things without the dolls. You nua, you eat, you talk. It does feel very exciting seeing everyone’s dolls. I can’t wait for the rest of my kids to be presentable for future meets LOL.

I would like to splurge in rori

unfortunately I could not. Next.

I am, however, splurging a lot on taobao.

Aunts who are devout buddhists…

…are making things difficult for me because they just told me that during the previous 49 days, my dad’s soul has been in great sorrow and has been standing next to my mother and I, desperately begging for us to be able to hear him. And then 21 days into the 49 days he will wander about aimlessly not knowing what to do because his soul cannot bring himself to believe that he’s dead. And then on the 49th day he will be “very very sad” because he will never be able to see us ever again and be made to forget us before he gets ~sent away to the pure land where he will be very very happy~

I don’t know which part of that is supposed to make me feel appeased. Thanks to this stupid thing, I now can’t sleep. I didn’t need to hear that despite all the instructions you gave us to follow in order to make sure his soul gets appeased, and that he will have a good journey to the pure land (or get reincarnated, you know, ~just in case~ the whole pure land travel thing didn’t work out), my dad has been crying in agony for 49 days. Gee thanks XD;

They meant good, I know, but nrrrggggh LOL.
