So, I just finished my homework essay; prior to that, I wolfed down some cheese fries that my dad brought home. Prior to that, I took a nice shower, before which I had lunch with my dad, since my mom went to the mall with my sister. Before that, well actually, all morning, until some time before 2 pm I was making BOOKMARKS.


Yup, old-fashioned bookmarks. Not the magnetic type or the beaded ponytailer type. The old-school cardboard material bookmark. I made six, for my sister. She requested me to make some for her and she’ll buy them from me XD She wanted them fish-themed so I made her six. I was really planning to make five, but I made it six because I was not satisfied with one of them, so I just threw in an additional piece. Tomorrow I will show them to her over breakfast (^^,) I am not sure how to price them but I will just let her decide, based on how she finds them, because the materials I used were just whatever I have right now, so it was not like I shopped for specific materials and can price them accordingly. Besides, I’ve never made bookmarks before so I’ve no idea how much bookmarks are.

I’ll post photos next time; I took them after I made the bookmarks. Will just post after she sees the actual bookmarks. I hope she does not throw them away XD

Green Tea Chocolate, Calm Version

Friday afternoon, I went to buy some ingredients for some green tea chocolate. It was the birthday of Denise last Thursday and she liked the first batch of green tea chocolate I made, so for her birthday, I decided to make her some again. I made it differently this time, though, and used different portions of the ingredients. As I finished making it, I tasted it and I think it tasted fine, though I know more of the matcha bitterness will come out later on. I wasn’t able to taste it by then, though, since I have placed everything in a tub for giving to Denise after kendo. It was so nice to make it (^^,) I hope she likes it though it isn’t much.

I also realized it was so much fun to make green tea chocolate without The Anxiety XD And bringing it to the dojo did not involve hyperventilation as it did the last time I brought homemade green tea chocolate XD

Watching Yamato (^^,)

On the last day of the week of Eiga Sai, which was a Friday, we went to SM Mall of Asia to watch Yamato: Drummers of Japan. It was all so amazing! I totally loved it.

My Mom’s Marigolds (^^,)

My mom enjoys gardening, and since we moved to our current home, she has been growing marigolds:

Eraser Party

During the week of June 22nd, my internet connection was totally wonky, so I went over to my sister’s place to work since her internet connection was fine. Before I worked, I took the liberty of taking a photo of her Eraser Party. 

Dig in :D

Chocolate and Cream

Chocolate Fudge Cake from Cibo.

It is Chocolate Cake Immersed In Cream.

Served with the spoons on top, ready for Digging In :D

Chocolate Fudge Cake - a must order :D

Cereal Killer

So I love cereals XD

During the week of Eiga Sai, my sister and I were at the Shangri-La mall almost everyday, and we visited Cerealicious. I had coffee and My Bestfriend’s Pudding (some of the cereal “titles” are quite amusing).

My Bestfriend's Pudding - made up of Milo balls, mango bits, chocolate pudding, and of course, the icy milk.

I love the icy milk! I think it plays a huge part in making their cereals taste good. I don't like the music they play though; I think it kind of drives people away (^^U) When I went there after the first time I just ordered my cereals To Go.

Japanese Snacks for School

My sister bought loads of Japanese snacks for the both us so we could enjoy them while we have our morning coffee at the 711 near the Nihongo Center before class, and while we are taking our breaks in between (^___^) 

Banana Purin! *love*

Before anything else, we ate the banana pudding which sort of added a whole new layer of loveliness to my morning XD We momentarily forgot all about the coffee. At least until we finished the banana pudding and unwrapped the "Muffin Cake" which was supposed to go with the coffee :D

It is called "Muffin Cake" and it is Perfect With Coffee.

During our break in class we had this cute tiny-bread-like snack, beside which is my cow sharpener, to highlight the cow on the packaging :D

It looks like a pack of tiny pandesal :D

主人 - Of All Things! XD

This morning was our midterms in Nihongo. QUITE SURPRISINGLY, I got all the items on the Listening Test correct XD I was completely, honestly shocked (^^U) But I’m happy too because I realize it helps to be really relaxed during the test and to not overthink about how I will do XD

I would have gotten the midterms perfect if it weren’t for the 0.5 point which was deducted because I got one thing wrong - 主人。 Of all things, I got THIS word wrong, it’s so funny XD The word means one’s own husband - and I got one stroke wrong (>.<) I hope that when it comes to the REAL 主人, I won’t get anything wrong XD

In any case, I am so happy with the results of my test (^^,) I was not expecting it at all; I was just hoping to pass, because there have been some parts of the lessons that I found confusing. So yay (^^,)

Dinosaur Me

My friends and I went to Ya Kun Kaya Toast after a Going Away Dinner for one of our sensei. 

It was our first time to check out the place so we were excited to order :D

The place was actually quite nice and cozy.

We all ordered Kaya Toast.

I usually order coffee when we go out after dinner, but the Milo Dinosaur won me over.

The Milo Dinosaur turned me into a Dinosaur Me :D

One of us was still hungry even after dinner so he ordered the soft boiled eggs, which looked really good :D

Soft boiled eggs - Perfect for breakfast!
