Time flies.

I still remember when I was 18, a friend of mine turned 20. At that time, I thought it was such a big deal: “Wow! The big 2-0! Such a grown up age!” And now, see where I am. I can’t believe I’m actually 22! I’m not so sure it’s such a good thing though. I mean, I sure don’t FEEL nor LOOK it at all! (Not to mention all the fangirling stuff that is “supposed” to happen during high school years.) And it feels like I’m really getting on with the adult life…and all that is expected of me to become independent, etc, etc. No no, my parents aren’t going to kick me out of the house anytime soon (in fact, I’m still their little girl ^^), but I just feel the general pressure to really “grow up”, you know? It’s been quite evident in the past half year or so too:

  • working part time along side school (I know many people do this, but I guess it’s more rare with traditional asian families)
  • living by myself for 2.5 weeks when my parents were in HK…and having to figure out meals (I LOVE to bake*, but I usually don’t cook)
  • making plans to move out to Japan next year to teach English. Away from any familiar faces and places; it’s gonna be a REAL challenge!

Another thing is that: I’m still single. It seems out of my friends my age, more than half of them are coupled up. But that’s not a big worry, because I know that these things can happen when you least expect it (in Japan maybe? haha). So for now, I should just enjoy the singles life πŸ™‚

Anyway, time won’t slow down for me, so I guess I’ll have to march forward either way! 2wenty 2wo, here I come!

*Speaking of baking, I made Cream Puff Swans today! Adorable, aren’t they? ^_^
And while I’m at it, here are some of my past proud accomplishments~ Peach Cheesecake and Raspberry Tart. YUM! I should start a bakery, haha πŸ˜€

Oh ya, we got quite a bit of snow in the past 2 days. Mom took some photos and I thought I’d share~

My house

1) I made it! I FINALLY finished making the translation/slideshow video for Takki’s 25th bday phonecall on Recommmen! Haha, I’m super late I know, but at least I made it within a year! πŸ˜€ It’s my first video ever and I used Windows Movie Maker. Quite proud of myself, actually, for putting it all together with the timing and everything, especially with the text that appear in the intro and in the ending! Yay~ *beams* Also, props to you if you can identify the intro and ending songs! πŸ˜‰

If you want to d/l it, hai douzo~ (13.1 MB, .wmv file)

2) Another video I uploaded a while back. I just realized I never posted it here! It’s of young Tsubasa and Koki battling for the title of “king of tongue-twister”. Also spot the chibis: Yamapi, Toma, Tackey and Sho.

3) I won’t really consider this “goodies” for you, but I got my grad photo previews back…both sets! I uploaded them here if anyone is interested. Ahh, which ones should I buy?!?!

Goodies!

I come bearing goodies!

While I was in HK a couple weeks ago, I bought some magazines and photobooks of asian (mainly Japanese) singers. These are mostly Chinese versions (simplified chinese which I can only sorta half read -.-“) and made in China. Anyway, there was this set of 3 photobooks featuring Japanese idols. On the cover, it was advertised to have photos of T&T, SMAP, Kinki Kids, NEWS, KAT-TUN, Kanjani8, W-inds, D-boys, and WaT. So I bought it…

But turns out the 3 books in there were entirely of a)Kanjani8, b)WaT and c)D-boys (I haven’t even heard of them until now!)

Well now these photobooks need new homes! My friend is a WaT fan, so I’ll give that one to her. But the K8 and D-boys photobooks are up for sale!

Kanjani 8:
K8 1K8 2K8 3K8 4K8 5

– 130 pages
– LOTS of juicy interview articles, diary entries, and lyric (dated up to 2006)…all in simplified Chinese
– an entire section dedicated to Ryo-chan
– includes some photoshoots with Uchi Hiroki
– $18 USD + shipping fee

D-Boys:
D-Boys 1D-Boys 2D-Boys 3D-Boys 4D-Boys 5

– 112 pages
– basically all full page-sized photos (as shown), with minimal words (for profile info)
– $17 USD + shipping fee

Notes:
– prices are negotiable…my main goal is for them to go to someone who’ll enjoy them much more than me! πŸ˜€
– accepting concealed cash only (USD or CAD) at your own risk
– willing to ship anywhere since you are the one paying for it (shipping rates are usually ~$10 give or take)
– photobooks will be wrapped in a protective envelope
– I will not be responsible for any damage/loss during shipping
– if interested, please leave a message and I will reply back to you in an email! If more than 1 person is interested, don’t hesitate to let me know because I just may have a way of getting
more copies of these (including the WaT photobook since it comes in a set of 3) until Jan. 22! πŸ˜‰ So don’t wait!! (I can post up WaT sample pics too if people start asking~)

Please help me spread the word to anyone you know who may be interested! Thanks a lot!~ πŸ˜€

Tadaima~ I’m back home safely~
Thank you Michelle, Stephi-chan, Bunsie, and Glenda for your comforting words in my last post *hugs* =)

As you see, I’m playing around with the format on this site. I am in need of a new header, but I suck at photoshop. Does anyone want to make one for me? πŸ˜› Lemme know, hehe~

Anyway, continuing with this post…Here’s Tsubasa’s part!

Teasers:
– Tsubasa as a Jr at his first concert
– Giving someone a bad impressing at their first meeting
– Make-overs
– Tsu sucks at RPG?!
