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 ;;;
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.
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.
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.
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.
