The Sunday Currently, Volume Four


Birthday week! “ヽ(´▽`)ノ” I have been rather indulgent in spending this week because of my birthday xD It's also a great opportunity to meet up with friends and to catch up over good food ((: Plus, I have 99% recovered from my cough and flu bug!! It felt good to be singing again.

CURRENTLY...

WRITING... up my travel plans for this year and 2016! I really enjoy writing up itineraries ~(‾▿‾)~ I enjoy reading up on new places, plotting them on a Google Map, and then zooming out to see how I have travelled XD Using the Google Map is also a good way for me to introduce places that I have been to to my other travel-loving friends!

WATCHING... Aldnoah.Zero and Log Horizon Season 2! Fafner in the Azure Exodus is confusing @.@ I watched both movies that came out before this series to have a better sense of the background, but they didn't really help... The art has improved while not deviating too much from the original style.

LISTENING... To one of my favourite groups online: Goosehouse! Recently, they composed the opening for Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso. Their first anisong I think! :D
Song: 光るなら - Goosehouse

HOPING... To try out a Cardcaptor Sakura-themed Ichiban Kuji sometime this month! CCS is my favourite childhood anime, and the teapot and cup are just too cute to resist~! It is 9 SGD per ticket though OTL

LOVING... the great company and surprises that I have had over my birthday week, ranging from birthday treats from colleagues to movie dates with my secondary school pals (so old now OTL). Planned a short weekend trip to KL to meet some friends and help out with a photoshoot! Leaset baggage ever for a trip \o/

FEELING... proud of myself that I cooked up a dish this afternoon! Will likely post up a picture of my "masterpiece" on Instagram real soon. Do follow if you haven't~

The Sunday Currently, Volume Three


Real life is starting to work its magic, and I'm starting to feel that Friday is a great day for working people because it means that the weekend is coming \o/ Also because Friday means I get off work a little earlier than usual, and it feels great to reach home when the sun is still up. “ヽ(´▽`)ノ”

My hobbies and other stuff have been put on hold as I diligently sleep early to cure myself of my sickness. And I am slowly recovering~! Hopefully by next week, I will be able to sing again :D

CURRENTLY...

READING... cookbooks I borrowed from the local library for inspiration to cook~! I found a recipe book just on donburi (rice bowls), and I thought that it would make for good one-dish meals. ~(‾▿‾)~

WATCHING... I finished Season 1 of Log Horizon! (like, finally lol). Started on Aldnoah.Zero Season 2! While it is only on its second episode, the plot is not really clear yet. The music is by Hiroyuki Sawano, who has composed for several of my favourite animes! (灬♥ω♥灬)

LISTENING... To English Pop this week~! Randomly clicking on covers on Youtube. The song below has a wonderful routine to it too, by Kyle Hanagami & Haley Fitzgerald. (:
Song: Sweater Weather - The Neighbourhood (Max & Alyson Stoner Cover)

WISHING... that I could take my piano exam and JLPT this year. My travel plan for July has clashed horribly with the possible exam dates though. ): Hopefully I can make it to the JLPT in Dec, and take my first graded exam in March of next year.

LOVING... Chatting with like-minded friends over the course of the week, whether it is about music, about travel (why is Bangkok so hot in May OTL), and talks about celebrating birthdays this month. \o/

WANTING... This sickness of mine to be gone~! I have been down with URTI (Upper Respiratory Tract Infection aka cough + flu + whatnot) for a week now, and while it is getting better slower, it annoys me that I am not able to sing throughout the week. Oh well.

CLICKING... Random youtube videos of Benjamin Cumberbatch because he's starring in The Imitation Game, which airs in Singapore cinemas next week~! Here's one for your viewing pleasure XD

The Sunday Currently, Volume Two



This week is a pretty slow week for me because I'm down with a cough and flu >.< Regardless, I think I have been rather productive at work ʕ •̀ o •́ ʔ Just not with everything else... -sigh-


CURRENTLY...

WATCHING... Still on Log Horizon (lol). But I am more than halfway through~! I get to watch one episode a day, and I just downloaded KanColle to watch!! (´∀`)♡ The anime adaptation of Parasyte has been awesome so far too (: Looking forward to KnB Season 3! (Where is FREE! Season 3 haha)

LISTENING... to Kit Chan's performances on I Am A Singer. Pity she is already out, though I had expected it to happen >.> Connecting back to a few MandoPop singers like JJ Lin and Jay Chou...
Song: Xin Dong - Kit Chan

WANTING... to get better! Lethargy is slowing down some of my plans. ): I had a night out yesterday that I had to cancel ):

FEELING... Very under the weather. On my second course of antibiotics.

CLICKING... Hotels in Germany!! Planning for a trip is tedious and sometimes a hassle, but I am grateful to have knowledgeable friends who share similar opinions about travelling and do most of the planning (#feelinglikeafreeloader).  ღゝ◡╹)ノ♡

Here's to a more positive weekend next week! Hwaiting!

The Sunday Currently, Volume One


I had stumbled upon this series from another blog, and I thought that it was a good way to motivate/inspire me to blog by keeping a record of the week. I am not sure how long this series will continue, or whether it would even happen weekly consistently, but let's give this a go, and see where it leads to. Shall we? (◕ฺ‿◕ฺ✿ฺ)


CURRENTLY...

WATCHING... Log Horizon Season 1! I am on to episode 11, and I think that the storyline is pretty good! I hope to finish it soon so that I can start on Season 2~!

LISTENING... To the noisy banter coming from the mahjong table and the cousins watching television. We usually watch comedies now from the cable TV channel we subscribe to.
Song: The Seal Lullaby - Eric Whitacre Singers

THINKING... about the mountain of work waiting for me back home to finish. There is recipes to be copied out from borrowed books, music to be played and words to be written. All of which that I am willing to invest time and effort into. (•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑

HOPING... that all my travel and music plans for the year will work out. >.< I do want to go to Holland and Japan so badly T.T Also, to spend less time on social media.

FEELING... motivated to start building up my fantastic and fulfilling 2015. I just know it will be. (๑◕ฺ‿ฺ◕ฺ๑)

[Lolita] Dusk Library Collection by Surfacespell



 All pictures are property of Surfacespell.

Looking through my previous Lolita features, I'm surprised that I have not featured this online store/brand yet! Specially crafted for this year's winter season, this collection includes a coat to keep you warm for the winter~

Jumperskirt & Skirt

I have always loved books and libraries, so this design really appealed to me~! Recently, I would prefer getting more skirts since I can show the design of the blouse, but I have not been able to find pretty blouses yet ): For this collection, only one design for the jumperskirt and skirt is available.




Coat

This coat has been previously released in 2012, and now they have come up with an improved version which has a more elegant feel~!

Accessories

This collection comes with a bag of the same print and matching berets! The ribbon on the beret is removable.







Working life has been hectic and fulfilling, but I am glad that I have spent December celebrating with both family and friends, old and new~! What about you?  


I am using the first day of 2015 to re-collect my thoughts and plan for travel, events and new things to try for 2015~!
