un expected macaron quest

5/18/2012

I haven't dressed up in Lolita for a long time. I actually forgotten how enjoyable and amusing as well as hurtful it can be.

the first annoyance occurred right when I got off the car and bb drove off. a man attempted to label and question me if I was cosplaying. I had already saw him across the street pan handling. so I wanted to avoid him, I looked straight ahead and kept walking. he proceeded to follow aggressively and wave his hands in front of me to talk to me. I did not look at him and hoped he would go away .. in which he did not and i finally replied as I walked " I heard you and I do not want to talk to you"
scared and a bit ashamed I hid in side a store. I realized I must of been so rude and to a stranger?.. is this how I want Lolita portrayed to the world?
for the rest of the day I felt very meek.

while I walked about some people stared and some people are really nice and some are vulgar. I stayed off the street most of the time and stayed indoors ...

as I walked about, i started to muse dumb things like

"you don't know I am looking at your reflection while you are staring at me"

"he has a pretty and expensive car and I have beautiful dress, our happiness must amount the same"

in the end I met with charlene at the bay, we looked at some betsy Johnson accessories and decided to go to the store. it's really too bad they're closing... I really like their store a lot even though I usually cannot afford anything. I was bad and bought a pair of earrings.
I'll show and tell this later =D

afterwards we decided to go on a macaron hunt at Soriette
I've been meaning to write a review but my draft keeps getting erased !

I pick white truffle and matcha
the anatomy of the macaron is correct except the outer shell is to soft
(which I discovered will dry out in a few days and weirdly enough the inside chewy ness does not =D)
white truffle
this is actually a sweet and salty one. the first thing it reminded me was cactus club - butternut squash ravioli
I think they can do with a lighter hand when salting

matcha
I got this because it's safe =D

after that we rushed off to dress see to help charlene find some faery wings as she was going to be dressing up as tinker bell for geeks after dark.
I saw Facebook pictures the next day and oh boy! charlene looked exactly like tinker bell!!!

anyways, we then went to deadly. couture to visit Jenny. apparently she's away and in her place an amazing gothic doll!! the outfit she put together is super cool pretty and cute... etcetc I cannot describe!

lastly we stopped at meat and bread to eat. I'm not sure why I order porchetta when I wanted the meatball sandwich. I think it really tasted like Chinese pork (siu yok) I didn't really taste the pesto that they had in it. the only comment I can put in this is the meat is cooked to perfection!
taste 2.5/5
ambience 4/5
service 5/5
let me add to this simply, do not go in there in Lolita if you wish to not loose your composure!

through out today I've been using camera360, the magic skin filter is fantastic I haven't needed to edit my pictures, the only downside is that the picture size is very small. so when uploaded to the web and viewed on a computer it's pixely =(

farewell Betsey Johnson

it is really too bad she has filed for bankruptcy. I was waiting for one day when I was rich to buy things I want. I don't like everything in there but there is a few pieces that are quite striking. I don't buy from her because they are quite pricey but now with a bit of a discount it's way more affordable. still not enough to buy a dress and jacket I've been eyeing..
Betsey Johnson earrings has made me <3 wearing earrings again
the first thing I saw when I went in was the necklace, basically I was not going to leave with out it lol
bb bought me the ballet earrings, he was surprised I was even remotely interested lol (because I always forget to wear or was only partial to the earrings )

A minimal day

My good friends Sharon and Helena are really awesome doing the type of make up you see in popteen.  It looks like very little make up but actually it's loads, or at the very least a lot of technique.
Anyhow here is my go at it before heading out to the very anticipated night market =D



I'm trying out a new pair of bottom lashes i would normal never choose (cousin got it for me in hk <3)
because when I see a pair of bottom like these I would think it's way to obvious
but you know what I actually really like these, what do you guys think?





Also to end this post with doe eyed photo and guess what? if you read my last post... these pictures I am not wearing lipstick I think a nude pink would of been better =(...., anyways!
 some how i feel like I look a little bit like XiaXue... if only i had kept my mouth shut and smiled in the picture instead of looking like bunny

Self hate post

While doing the usual girl chat, I never realized until my friend pointed out to me that I have pick out weird things to hate about myself

I'm not huge but I'm not skinny either in the bust waist hip and thighs and EVEN though I'm Asian doesn't automatically equal skinny. I am of average Canadian proportion unlike ______.

So I wish i could be tiny-er in stature in every thing, I don't care if I loose some boobage or some ass, hell if I loose some I'd fit into the pretty clothes I wish I could wear properly. Sometimes I try to explain to some of  my skinny asian friends how I wish I could be like them. A very good example is some times a certain type garment is suppose to fit a certain way and if you have too much say tummy then it kinda...bulges out the wrong places.. soooooo... for me it bulges all the way around, I buy the largest size of Asian pants and I can barely fit into it, I buy pants here and I fit into a nice medium (don't I feel great)
you know what I'll come right out and say it:
 I don't have massive breasts but I'd appreciate it if they were a size or two smaller. So if I'm complimenting you skinny bitches with small chest I am very jealous take the god dam compliment.. at least nice clothing fit properly on you!


so another thing I come to realize from my girly chat today that she thinks I'm weird about this
(I was talking to her about how i wanted concealer for my lips)
I hate my lips, why are they so red?or pink?I'm not wearing any lipstick I can't. I want to wear the nice flirty pink YSL ... nothing ever really shows up. If anything it changes the color of my lips ever so slightly. If I want a super big change dark red and black surely shows up =D

Lastly I hate most is my face
when I try to eat healthy exercise and loose weight, first part of me that goes is my face. My cheeks hollow out first. It was the worst sometime in highschool. Looked as if I was a drug addict (i'm not)
Last to go is my ass.. very wonderful

=D
so what are the weird things that you hate about yourself?

Sakura blossom festival

every year I wanted to go and every yea I'd miss it. this year I'm super attracted by the bento boxes because of the super cute round sushi!

of course I didn't know how special it was until angel just balled about it

apparently the restaurants that put the box together are some of the best in Vancouver.
