Not much to share. It has been a little busy for me. Most is settling down, but for the most part, things are better.

T-Express is a popular ride at the amusement park, Everland. One of the reasons it is popular is because of the fact that it is a wooden roller coaster ride. In addition, it was featured on Infinity Challenge, Episode 428, where they attempt to eat Jajangmyun and do their makeup throughout the ride. It was pretty funny xD

Papers. Every three months, we all dread this work. We have to mark, sort, punch, and bind into a book. Looks pretty, but so much time/work goes into it.

Cosrx has been a slowly growing favourite of mine. It was a cult favorite in the ASian Beauty thread on Reddit. It has now found a good home at my place as well. I still have to work out the perfect system, but I do like what I can see so far :)

This was photoshopped so that the colours were prettier, but this was taken in Itaewon. It was near the Jo Molane store. I was in the area since I wanted to see Les Miserables. The dog, just made me happy. I miss my dog.

Recently, I have been addicted to collecting the stickers from certain promotions. They are attached to gum, or inside chip packaging. This series is called, “Cheese in the Trap”. Yes there was a drama about it, and no, I wasn’t a complete fan. I did however enjoy most of it.

Nothing spectacular.
But, seeing as it is a Leap Year, I wanted to post.

Brunch. This was over $13CAN. A little too pricey, seeing as I was craving more. Especially for the French Toast. Yummers.

I went to Everland (I’ll share more soon…though again…I say that too much lately #brokenblogpromises). I actually got sick from one of the rides…and still having issues now. Guess with my age…I shouldn’t get on crazy twisty rides anymore. In any case, I felt somewhat better at some point, so I ate the waffle. Amusement park food wasn’t as expensive as it is back home, so I was excited. This was about $3.50CAN. Not amazing, but I was happy :)

Bee Cheng Hiang in Myeong Dong, Seoul

A few weeks back, I was talking about how I was going to Myeong Dong over the weekend. My coworker got all excited, and decided to join me.

The reason for this?

Her favourite BBQ’ed meat from Singapore could be found there.

They have opened two locations within Myeong Dong, and can be found in vacuum sealed packages in various parts of Korea in department stores.

It is a little expensive, considering it was (I think) 100grams for about $10CAN.

However, she said it best.

As soon as you put it in your mouth, you are drooling.

I truly was. I had to do everything I could to try and preserve the last piece for the next morning, just so I could photograph it.

First heard of this through an episode of Infinity Challenge.

Beautiful :)

A love letter to Daiso…

Dear Daiso,

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Please open up in Toronto right now!!!!

Alright, so I’m not good at writing poems of any kind. But, Daiso will definitely be one of the things I will miss, when I eventually leave this place. Though I know there is one in Vancouver, I don’t know how my future plans will work out.

In any case, since Daiso is on my way home, I like to pop in whenever I am bored…or want to spent a few bucks.

One of the things I am obsessed with recently, is this plastic organizer. Only 1,500w (~$1.60CAN), I have been using it as my marking pencil case.

Then there are the cute stickers that they have…

I’m a huge fan of the stars right now. With some shine, they are attracting the little kiddies. Plus, it helps that you get a lot for a little over a dollar. Depending on if it is fancy, you will get 9 sheets of stickers.

Then there is this. 3,000w (~$3.30CAN).

I took two of these back in November. Not too big, not too small. You can also stack them. You just pop off the lid, and slid the next two sets in. Great to quickly stash things.

then…comes my addition to writing thingamabobs…

This set is 3000w (~$3.30). I like them, but you need to be a little more delicate when writing. The tip is squishier, so you can flatten the tip in no time. I don’t let my students near these. These are only for me!

These ones are 2000won. More for doodling. The wider part is pretty pigmented, so it can seep through.

Blurry, since I couldn’t get my phone to cooperate with me, but the second set is far sturdier, and I don’t have to be as gentle as the other set. But, I do the like first set a little bit more.

They also started stocking Hello Kitty Products. Yes I paid a little over $2CAN for a Hello Kitty keychain. Yes, I think I am weird too. But dangit, it was cute. They also have hair ties, and other misc things.

Thanks to the #daiso hashtag I found that Daiso had Green Tea Pocky in stores! So, I had to get some. So yummy xD

So…
That is what I have been playing with recently. My Daiso is a little on the small side, but I make do.

Hmmm…should go check out if they got any new stock today…

haha…toodles!
