It has been somewhat of a common knowledge that Jasmine and I are quite pathetic when it comes to directions. Many a time we relied on other people (or cabs) to get to places. That’s why not many people trusted me even with a GPS nagivation system in my car, or how our friends (especially our Sparklies friends) were feeling that we’re gonna be doomed and get lost in Japan, stuck in the country, and sold off as soapland girls or something (thanks guys <3 it’s really nice to know you worry about us so much XD)
In our previous trip, we had Shu to guide us to places, ask for directions etc. This time, we’re on our owwwn.
For some reason, she started to limp and hopped about on 3 legs. It didn’t look like she was in any pain, and occasionally, I catch her walking on all 4 legs. It’s really not much of a problem (I hope), but it gets annoying when she doesn’t dare to climb down the stairs to do her business and ends up deciding that our bedroom doors/mum’s bed will be her new peeing spot.
She’s getting better now. She doesn’t limp now, but you can still see her favouring that leg. And the peeing thing.
She’s also quite a drama queen, so here’s a video of her doing a “look at me I very the ke lian ):” limp.
This was during the whole period where she climbed up the stairs to chase after my nugget meal, jumped up the bed for scratches and hugs, and jumped down the bed to look forlornly at my nugget meal on the desk. All on 4 legs. So really, her leg is fine (maybe just sensitive)
2. I have a broken doll hand.
The doll’s hands were wrapped together with the body, that means they weren’t individually wrapped up like what most would do ): I guess that’s why the fingers snapped. I don’t get it though. I’ve ordered from infinitidoll before, and they wrapped my girl body’s hands individually, so why didn’t they for this boy ):..
Also, one of his eye is smaller than his other eye. I’m sad. Am wondering if I should get someone to sand it open, but $$$$$ SOB.
I’m hoping for infinitidoll to send me a new spare hand.
3. I scratched my car.
I’m an idiot.
Thankfully, the damage wasn’t drastic, it’s not like the door couldn’t open up or you can see a huuuge dent or something. In fact, after scrapping away most of the concrete plaster off my car, you wouldn’t really notice it. Sort of. I guess. I don’t really want to send this sort of damage for servicing, but idk. I’m trying my best not to let my mother notice it hahaha /cough
And I only drove this car for exactly 60 days /cry
About two nights ago, while I was driving back home, some shitty metal rod/nail thing went through my tyre. I was in a rather deserted area at that time, well, there were like one or two cars every 15 mins or so, but it was deserted enough to have mongrels walking out from their hiding place to look at me. Believe me, it wasn’t very comforting to see them be so daring about it. Anyways, I stopped by a bus stop where there is more light, and idk why but I made sure that the lamp post near it had a security camera fixed to it. Just in case if something drastic happened to me, at least it got recorded down.
Also, before I continue, lemme just say that I’m very upset that I’m getting all these unfortunate things happening to me day after the other. From the mysterious jam on Friday, the plumbing system and lights in my house failing on Saturday, the electronic safe failing + the really shitty people in the concert on Sunday, to my taobao loot missing + dead tyre on Monday..
Attended STGCC with Alanna and Ivory yesterday! And met up with Jasmine (get well soon!) and Shu for breakfast and dinner respectively. Couldn’t meet up with a lot of the Sparklies, but it’s okay! There are always other opportunities to meet up.
Perhaps because it’s really not what I’m interested in, but we sort of breezed through the whole thing in less than half an hour. If it was catered more to the Japanese market, and probably dolls and stuff, it might have been a lot more fun for me. This time it seems to focus a lot more on what a lot of people like to label as “Western toys and comics” like Marvel etc., and all the storm troopers and random collectibles. The area for animation and design seemed to have expanded a lot more definitely, which is always fun to look at.
I did look forward to Kishida Mel’s spotlight session 8) I’m very very attracted to his style of drawing and colouring, enough to want an autograph from him. I was hoping that I could catch his autograph session, but I realised that I would totally miss it because it’s held at 11AM-12PM, so there went the only thing I was looking forward to LOL. I didn’t really think I would be interested in a talk session, but surprisingly 1 hour flew by really fast~
And to go off topic, he’s really tall. And he’s got a decently cute face. Not ikemen ikemen, but you know, cute. And though common, I enjoyed his voice and his way of speaking and how honestly frank he was when he said he did so and so because it’s his job (for a commission). And he was an actor~ Sense this mini fangirling moment of mine that has got nothing to do with his art. And he likes Oshimizu Nako the most because of her braids hohohoho. COSPLAY?! HAHAHA.
He has another autograph session on Sunday 4PM-5PM, and I did consider going, but I told myself I shall let “Fate” decide for me. Should I be able to get a copy of Atelier Totori/Rorona’s artbook from Kino, I’ll rush for the autograph session. Alas, I checked the Kino site – no copies left LOL.
After 4 weeks of waiting, we finally got the chance to resume our horse riding lessons.
I know I’ll do very badly during lessons by jumbling up with my hands and basically failing at dealing with the whole saddle, so I was prepared to get skinned by the instructor. I’m glad I mentally prepared myself for it, because if I didn’t, I probably would waste the whole lesson away by giving up. I’m proud of myself for not shriveling up with every blow dealt.
Just a while ago, I was toying with the idea of painting pokeballs on my nails. I did it, but unfortunately, the whole thing got messed up. I think it’s the white nail polish. The red nail polish was from OPI, while the white was from FUSO. And it gave me a loooot of problems. Couleur Inc’s yellow nail polish also gave me quite a bit of problem, though I was wondering if it was because of me instead since I had no problems with their gold.
But here, proof that I was pretty much done before all the weird shit happened. I have yet to clean the sides before taking the picture.
