The Sunday Currently, Volume Twenty-Two

From happy-garden.
Chanced upon this image while on Tumblr, and it brought back some childhood memories when I used to play with these dolls! I remember them being really expensive, and my parents would only allow additions when I did well academically xD


CURRENTLY...

PASS(ED)... my JLPT N3 exam! Just barely, but I am glad that I passed! Will be working hard on completing the remaining of my assessment books, and looking out for a N2 course in the near future.

PLAYING... Mahjong with the colleagues~! We finally got a date fixed to play together. The rules are pretty easy to grasp, and I find it fun that there are several possible combinations in order for you to win!

LISTENING... to a new song a friend introduced me. I have known this singer for a while now, but her renditions on I Am A Singer have been impressive. Below is my favourite song from her so far:



THINKING... about what to give to a friend for her brithday, because she lives in a different country from me xD At the same time, the options are pretty limited so there isn't much to decide from the possible choices.

WAITING... for my parcel to arrive from Taobao. I bought a few pieces of new clothing (isn't this supposed to be done before the Chinese New Year holiday...), and I sure hope they fit! If they fit, it means I will have to start clearing my cupboard and see if I have space for more clothes XD Changing styles is always fun.

ANTICIPATING... the releases for the celebration of Pokemon's 20th Anniversary! I got the Pokemon Black 2 this week, and they gave me a free Level 100 Mew redemption card o.O

MAINTAINING... a diet! Just barely though xD Somehow my exercise regime has vanished... Trying again this week~! ✧٩(•́⌄•́๑)

The Sunday Currently, Volume Twenty-One



How I feel when people try to give me more hats at work than I can count ._.

Happy Valentine's Day~!


CURRENTLY...

WATCHING... Deadpool! It was such an entertaining movie ˭̡̞(◞⁎˃ᆺ˂)◞*✰

REGISTERING... (or trying to) my extended warranty for my new phone, Sony Zperia Z5. My contract was due last week, so I got a phone upgrade! The difference between the Z1 and Z5 can be felt. XD Now I have to l

PLAYING... The Legend of Zelda and the Spirit Tracks, suggested by my sister.But shortly after, my 3DS decided that it was time to retire XD So I switched to 100 Sleeping Princes. It is taking up a bit too much of my time now though ;_;

BUYING... new clothes and accessories off Taobao! (Aren't I supposed to have done that before CNY and not after XD)

STARTING... on some exercise and small changes in diet~! I'm hoping to achieve my ideal weight this year!

Even shorter post this Sunday, have a list of games to catch up on XP

[Amaya Travels] Llangollen, Wales (Around Town, Corn Mill)

After the post on Llangollen accommodation, I have been thinking on how best to section the next post so that it's still under one theme, and the post is not cluttered by too many photos.

First off, some snaps from the main village square! It's the only place that's bustling with activity most times of the day, and it's where we had this procession to celebrate the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod!



Obligatory fish and chips when in the UK!


Everywhere is fully booked for the festival.



Taken from the Llangollen Bridge (I think!)
Some of the more food savvy friends recommended a meal at Corn Mill!


The Corn Mill

Dee Lane, Llangollen LL20 8PN, Wales

Tel: 01978 869 555


We were lucky to be visiting the restaurant when it was not too busy~!








FYI: This was from the kids's menu. KIDS' MENU...

Colourful fruit displays!


Going down this road leads to the Llangollen Station, which houses a restaurant as well!




Some boating competition going on~
Free for all to feed~!





Festival Grounds

And on to one of the main events held in Llangollen! It is a distance from the main town square, but the space is huge, and it houses its own F&B and retail options. Most vendors commented that they were surprised at the crowds on the first day that for many of the shops, we were turned away because the stock hadn't arrived xD




Had lots of fun opening my mini hair salon~!




There was also a little park area next to the grounds which I did not have time to finish exploring ):




... Yeah that's it xD Hey, being on the grounds was mostly for singing, practising, and singing some more. Most of the free time I had, I spent it outside of the grounds and in the main town, so xD

Left: a really random photo of Limited Edition Minion Haribo (which my dad gave away before I could eat it NO ): )

The Sunday Currently, Volume Twenty


Source: Alternative Purple
It is the eve of the Lunar New Year, where children stay up late so that their parents will live long lives \o/ But my parents would rather I go to sleep. The Lunar New Year holiday is also one of the longest breaks Singaporeans ever get.

CURRENTLY...

ANTICIPATING... the Lunar New Year goodies! A lot of these foods are only produced during this season, and I can't wait to eat my fill! There isn't a major concert recently, so I don't have to be particularly conscious of getting a sore throat (ノ≧∀≦)ノ

WATCHING... Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi! It's a mystery, psychological film about a guy who experiences re-runs, in attempts to change the future. I personally prefer the manga because it is of a slower pace xD The anime covers half a book an episode xD

LISTENING... to new choral music that my choir will be working on for the next half of the year! The piece is particularly moving.



WANTING... to get out of this depressing zone. The past trip to Taiwan had me thinking about a lot of things in my life, and how I want to move on from this love of mine.

BOOKMARKING... a Qi-Lolita print from Ichigo Witch's Weibo. The sales page is not up yet, but the details from the photos are just so pretty!

PLANNING... more meetups with friends in Singapore! I believe that reconnecting with other people is one of the meaningful ways to build myself up again.
