Venice, Italy. August 2009.
Brought this back to life.

You’re probably the third person who’s told me this, although I don’t see it! But thanks haha.

And my brothers and I experimented on some pancake art! It takes a while to get the hang off but it’s major fun.
For those of you who want to try it— get a squeeze bottle and fill it with batter. Start by drawing the outline, let it cook slightly, and then fill in the spaces with more batter. The outlines are cooked longer so they appear darker.
A few tips from our trials-and-errors:
- Be precise and put extra pressure in squeezing the bottle. Otherwise the line tends to come out squiggly and not at all straight and solid.
- Start with something simple, such as a smiley face.
- Don’t put that much butter or oil in the pan; the outline won’t brown as much and instead of a smiley face, you’ll get pretty much just a regular ol’ round pancake.
And tada! Yummy extra-cute breakfast!
It was my youngest brother’s birthday and we had a quiet celebration over the weekend. I can’t believe he’s 17 already!
Anonymous asked: Please please upload your most recent photo. <3 And is your hair highlights still there? :)
I think this is my most recent photo, which also happens to be my current Facebook profile photo.
As for my hair, the color has faded, leaving just the bleached part, as seen slightly here. I’ve been too lazy to re-dye it again, haha.

I read The Lord of the Rings series in high school— it was one of those voluminous 3-in-one books, which I carried around everywhere and read under the table instead of studying for exams (which I luckily passed, despite Gandalf’s cautionary outburst).
I unfortunately lost it while on a trip to Italy when I was 13.
And so after being LOTR-less in the succeeding years, this weekend I happened to pass by BookSale, where I had always seen one or two of the books but never the complete set. But as luck would have it, in this particular happenstance, miraculously, I saw all of four, including The Hobbit, huddled together in beautifully illustrated covers and hardly a dent or fold in all their previously-owned glory. I purchased them in a heartbeat (for less than half the usual price!).
Tolkien has found his way back to me, after all these years. My precioussss.
I have just unearthed some old files from my old iMac, which a lot of are recollections of when I still used to live in California. And also which, of course, I’ve spent the last few hours perusing and fondly reminiscing over.
So this is one of them— breakfast and a quick drive through Mount Diablo, California.

I spent the past few days in bed with a slight fever and a cold that wouldn’t leave me alone, devouring copious amounts of soup, tea, and Downton Abbey.
Today, however, I woke up feeling much better and motivated to do something— like trying out the 200 gsm watercolor paper my mom got me, which I am enjoying so far.
A happy rest-of-the-week to everyone!
