I remember back in the day ..lol..
it was very difficult to buy any lolita brands. I know some people think I'm a snobby elitist and whatever, but it wasn't always that way. I started some what ita to what I look like now, so excuse me for wanting perfection when I can clearly see your laziness seeping from your clothes.
I use to make my own items including the "pad" headdress!
I made and sold my very own designs.
That was when I started to make some sort of income, because at that time I was too young to work.
Soon enough I was able to afford items. sometimes my good friends would bring me back socks too. it would also come with a plastic bag! of course... being young and stupid, I'd paraded around as if I also got a "brand" bag.
or i remember when I came to the horrible decision to sell my closet. my prized closet of everything I had earned by hand, sold for college funds.
it's been so long since then..it almost like a dream. now I have some hair and make up skills to add to my arsenal =)
I know of it and that sort but never tried it.
it's awesome for the summer! fried crunchy bread with cold cold melting ice cream !! yummy!!
@Soho Tea room
by the way ..
they also serve alcoholic bbt
I'm not sure what's going on with chicco today but their parfait was unacceptable!
the whip cream is barely even whipped more like liquid, super runny. when i asked them if this was normal, they said yes!
so a normal parfait for chicco Cis made with runny un whipped cream
cakes were okay =(
have I overdosed from this place already??
needless to say I won't be back for awhile
you know it's at least a decent tea house when they don't make their food and the food isn't good.
beautiful place love how they revamp what use to be Picnic by Meinhardt.
they have some intriguing beauty teas I hope to try more of one day!!
Arriving late we had a quick snack an jumped into the pool before it closed!!
finally I have a chance try out my monofin!
it is a serious work out!!
I really can't wait to do it again. hopefully I can do this more regularly!!
after a session in the sauna and a quick bath it's off to snack in yew.
lookie there! that's a lobster taco!!! it's very good. the one thing I don't understand is why the guacamole is on the plate holding up the taco and making it soggy at the same time!
anyways I hear the bartender here is amazing! and indeed my lemon meringue cocktail was amazing!
finishing of the day with a snack and dessert on the bed, I can happily rollover to sleep like a fat pig =)
the top picture is of yesterday's dinner at Kingyo Izakaya. they have this awesome Kobe beef on hot rock! too cool ! too cool!
on the bottom picture is Phnom Penh, if you ever.. EVER go there you must order the lu luc with egg (half eaten plate) and if you can spare a few bucks ask for fried rice. It hits the spot every time ! mind you this i think $15ish plate of rice beef and egg can feed AT LEAST 3 people or 4 people comfortably with an appetizer =) oh and lastly!! if the egg yolk hasn't set, YOU NEED TO BREAK AND MIX IT IN!
Today I'm so tired after all this running around.
we first had a walk around Museum of Anthropology and enjoyed the ceiling to floor window viewing of a river?creek?
my favorite part inside the museum is the section of artifacts from around the world. I love ancient history ^_^!
next we went to Nitobe Gardens
equipped with its very own tea house. it's amazing and serene inside! I wish it were bigger!!
lastly we went to UBC botanical gardens. (2nd pic) I can't say it's gorgeous.. it's looks and feels like a home kept extremely large garden. it would be better if it were not off the side of the road.
with that being said I wonder if they allow picnics in there..
One of the most beautiful architectures in Vancouver is the Orpheum theater. whether it be the cement wall moldings to the painted ceilings, it is a dream for me. I always imagine to surrounded by this sort of beauty when one day I visit Europe.
tonight's feature was a cellist and a violinist.
I feel that the violinist.. she sounds young. she plays excellently but lacks.. something.. she is missing something. I think it is maturity.
now I quite like the cellist. he is quite the opposite.
Oru restaurant is the place to impress any date. especially with a flaming rum drink, good food and a decent view of raincouver!
normally I don't order simple cooked prawns at a restaurant but the table next to me was going on and on and ON about it. is it really that good? locally caught spot prawn is apparently in season in may!
and YES. they were THAT good!!
later that month I did of course buy some fresh prawns to cook at home.
