I was checking the mail & suddenly...
Posted Wednesday, July 24, 2013 // 4:38 AM ★ 0 CommentsI noticed an additional package that I didn't order from Anime Stuff Store. After thinking for a bit, I remembered that my friend works for that store. However, I wasn't expecting a package from him, especially considering that we will be with each other before & during Japan.
In addition, there was a Metropolis soundtrack, which unfortunately, was damaged during transit. The disc is fine, but I am still sad that the case is damaged. I am a huge fan of Osamu Tezuka & Katsuhiro Otomo, so Metropolis is a certainly one of my favorite movies, which includes a wonderful soundtrack.
Lastly, there was a Rilakkuma pencil which wasn't actually for me, but for a friend.
simple meal ideas
Posted // 4:27 AM ★ 0 CommentsSome meals that I can easily make while satisfying my infinite appetite.
Whole wheat waffles(syrup is on the side so that I can dip & control the intake as well as prevent soggy waffles that comes with drowning it in syrup) with an onion omelette & cherry tomatoes.
Egg drop miso soup. I purchase the large containers of miso paste, which can be used in many things, not just as a soup. More things can be added, but this is easy for when I'm getting close to finishing off my groceries.
Alfredo pasta with spinach. Most pastas go on sale, so I buy about 2 boxes every time I go shopping. More textured pastas can hold more sauce, so I use them for recipes like this. I like to add spinach, cherry tomatoes, & sometimes chicken.

On their website, it says that it takes about fifteen days for an order to arrive, & one-two days for orders to be shipped. I had placed my order on June 7th, but my order wasn't shipped until June 24th. I had sent them an e-mail after about a week or so, questioning what my order's status was, but it was unanswered. This seemed unusual, since so many people are sponsored by this store, & give them good reviews so it seemed reliable.
Finally, on June 18th, they sent me an e-mail saying that my order has been updated to "Processing," & included a link for me to view my order--& the link didn't even work. I replied to their e-mailing, addressing that the link doesn't work & my order was approaching three weeks without notice of shipping, & also mentioned how my previous e-mail was ignored. I hadn't received a notice of shipment or a tracking number, but they replied saying that my order shipped on the 24th, & provided a tracking number. However, they didn't tell me through what service may I track my order. I tried USPS, EMS, & DHL. Finally, I e-mailed them again asking which service does the tracking number correspond to. They replied saying "We ship the order through post office, Malaysia." Okay, fucking great. They didn't provide a link. I thought "No big deal, I'll just Google it." So I did, & apparently this is not correct.
I e-mailed them once again, saying that my tracking number still doesn't work for that site. & I started to wonder why they didn't just give me a link to where I can track it.
Finally, on June 30th, they e-mailed me my notice of shipment--six days after it had been shipped. It provided my tracking number & where I could track my package. I tried tracking it, & it still didn't work. Gosh, thanks so much.
I wasn't able to track my package the entire time. The customer service was terrible. Finally, I checked their social networking sites, & noticed that on Facebook, they announce that they would be on vacation at the beginning of June, & then mentioned that there's a delay in processing orders & replying to e-mails because they were getting caught-up. I have no idea why they didn't put this important information on their official site because here's some news: not everyone uses Facebook avidly.
(Excuse my wrinkles, I haven't been getting much sleep lately)
The lenses are extremely comfortable, as expected from EOS lenses. I was able to wear them for 8 hours without any discomfort or drying. They are also very opaque even on my extremely dark eyes, which is also expected from EOS lenses. The design provides a beautiful gradient effect towards the pupils, so my eyes don't appear to be looking in different directions(which is so common among circle lenses) & also make my pupils appear larger. The enlargement effect is also satisfactory.
I love the somewhat teary effect that these lenses provide. They're versatile in that they can be used for simple/sweet looks, as well as more sexy/formal looks.
I wont mention whether they look natural or not. I never understood why people gave negative reviews for lenses that are opaque as not being "natural." Why are you buying grey lenses to look natural? Idiot. The purpose is for there to be a color change.
thanks, but no thanks
Posted Tuesday, July 9, 2013 // 1:56 AM ★ 0 CommentsThe internet is great. I can find people with similar interests & discuss my feelings about certain subjects with others. However, opening a very public passage into my personal views allows people to not feel inspired by what I have to say or what I do, but to completely imitate my existence. I understand that I'm not the first one to like or do a certain thing, but it becomes way too coincidental when a surprising amount of content that I put out is adapted. For example, my words/sentences are quoted almost identically in addition to similar interests & aspirations. I don't feel flattered, I simply feel that someone is copying me. It's just irritating.
Why not just be yourself & do & like what you want. I'm not a cool person. I'm the complete opposite of a cool person. I don't choose to be different because I want to. It puts me through a lot of stress to be different. I certainly want more people to understand my opinions, but I don't want them to completely copy who I am.
Born Pretty Store's false eyelash kit
Posted Friday, July 5, 2013 // 3:35 AM ★ 0 CommentsI read somewhere, though I can't remember, a review on Born Pretty Store's false eyelashes. Seeing that they sold similar lashes to the ones that I've purchased from Pretty and Cute but for a lot cheaper, I decided to purchase from their store. In addition to being cheaper, the kit includes tools to aid in applying false eyelashes & eyelash glue.
Born Pretty Store is located in Singapore(?), & provides free shipping internationally, which is amazing because Pretty and Cute doesn't, & still has a shipping fee for domestic orders. They have a variety of lashes, as well as provide other products such as cosmetics, lenses, accessories, & clothing. However, none of the other products interest me simply because they are suited to my tastes.
I wasn't provided a shipping confirmation or tracking number, but my order arrived on July 2nd in a typical bubble wrap envelope.
Overall: I didn't intend this to be a review, but whatever. Born Pretty Store provides lashes similar to domestic stores, but at a lower price & with free shipping. They ship within 24 hours, & my order arrived within a reasonable time(two weeks overseas). However, they do not provide shipping confirmation or a tracking number. Despite the too-good-to-be-true pricing, the lashes are extremely well made & look beautiful & can be worn comfortably. The eyelash glue provided is also surprisingly durable, & lasts all day. I will purchase my lashes from this store again.
avocado salad & roasted chicken
Posted Monday, July 1, 2013 // 10:53 PM ★ 1 CommentsI don't really like going out to eat with my friends, because they don't really know how to shop for groceries or make food(I'm sorry!), so we end up at fast food restaurants, getting pizza, or buy doughnuts/ice cream to satiate our hunger. When I'm not seeing them, I do my best to fill myself with something homemade & healthy.
I had roasted chicken as well. It was just seasoned with salt & pepper. You can pan roast it by frying it in oil, skin side down, on medium heat for about 15 minutes(until it gets golden/crispy). Then flip them & put the pan(it shouldn't have rubber/plastic, make sure it's entirely safe to use in the oven) in a pre-heated oven at about 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Some ovens/stoves are different & not all chickens are born the same size, so this is open to adjustment. You can gently press the chicken to make sure the juices run clear--that means it's done.
Any personal photographs are taken by me on a Canon G10 or iPhone 4. Any gifs or images were created/edited by me as well, where I don't permit using elsewhere.
