Mawaru Penguindrum Artbook |
Finally, finally putting this up. I managed to take photos of this one artbook some time ago, but it got buried deep in my drafts for a while. But here it is, at last - my short review of MAWARU-PENGUINDRUM • Hoshino Lily Art Works ♥♥

Last Saturday, this tiny kitten was found just a few steps outside the house, looking really limp and lifeless. After feeding him a bit, Aian decided to adopt him. We named him Mimi, which means ear (耳) in Japanese, because his ears are a little big for his size. I've done nothing but take photos of him these past few days.. I missed one day because he was taken to the vet on the 19th, since he looked like he was on the verge of death when we took him in. Turns out he has something like a respiratory infection, but he's taking his meds and doing much better now. He's quite tiny for his age (2 months), so we've been giving him lots of food and vitamins (and love!) to make sure he grows up cute and fat and happy ♥

lazy summer days

May 18, 2014

Random photos (some from way, way back) that I've forgotten to post on the blog. I have quite a lot of these-- photos that are pretty, but don't fit anywhere else, so I never get to post them. They're too random to fit into photodiaries, and I'm not fond of posting entries with just one or two photos. Since there are a lot of them now, I tried to put together the photos that I felt would work well together. I'm not sure if this makes sense, but while I was putting them together I felt that these photos looked a lot like "summer," even though a couple of these were taken sometime late last year. Looking at them again, I think from an outsider's point of view they would look quite boring, huh? My summer days are usually spent inside the house, see, since I'm usually too lazy to go outside because of the heat and the glaring sun. So when I look at these photos, I instantly think of lazy summer days. Summer is different for everyone, I guess.

streetsnaps : Greenbelt 01.2014

More streetsnaps from earlier this year! Our friend Laura, who we've only ever talked to online, was in the country for vacation, so we took the chance to finally meet her. Since everyone's outfits were really nice, and Greenbelt was extra pretty because of the Chinese New Year decorations, I thought it would be nice to take streetsnaps of everyone. I'm so lucky to have such stylish people around me * u * Sadly though, we weren't able to take purikura photos since Glorietta's Timezone decided to pull out their Jewella machine ;___; (Where do we go to for purikura from now on?? orz) Instead, we took our group photos outside. We hung out a bit after that. Overall it was a fun day! Wish we were able to do more. Can't wait to hang out with Laura again when she comes back!

I mentioned this before, but when I did the shoot for these lenses, I shot a total of five pairs of lenses, including this one. You might notice that my hairstyle + clothes will be exactly the same for the next two lens reviews, haha! ;; Today's lenses are Dueba Crystal.i Grey, sent to me by LensVillage.
