"I'm no Disney princess, yet he gave me a fairytale."

good day ~ world! 
It took me a long time to muster up the confidence and start a blog.. even if I know only a few people will read it for the time being. I used to keep up blog writing back in the Xanga/AA days - but apparently blogger has the cool kid traffic nowadays.

Well, as they say, there are only so many tomorrows! My passion is for all things creative - and for now it's been expressing itself through food, nails, accessories, and.. food :) 

Here my story starts.

For his gradball, I chose the theme of dancing in the moonlight. A romantic panoramic scene in the stars with a couple in their own moment, wishing on a shooting star.

This base was the most opaque essie colour I've ever used. It applied very nicely, very smoothly and only required 2 coats. 

I sponged a gradient on 3 fingers of my left hand and 1 on my right to portray the night sky (Gotta put the complicated stuff on the left hand (; ...I'm obviously a righty). 

With NUBAR's nail art pens I detailed the dancing silhouettes (based off a random google image) and a tree. Finally, using the dotting tool with the finest point, I printed stars on the minuscule scene.

JOE FRESH - PERSIAN BLUE (sky gradient)

This design was very inspiring to me.. even with its dark toned atmosphere, their light and love is unmistakable.  It was a fun night and my nail colours matched my navy dress better than I thought :) One thing's for sure.. engineers can work hard And play hard.

Con'GRAD'ulations to my prince charming! 
Thank you for always supporting my endeavors, 
I'll be by your side to support yours 'happily ever after.

"An empty belly is the best cook."

greetings, earth!

This piece was inspired by one of my favourite animated movies of all time (next to Spirited Away, Despicable Me, Wreck-it Ralph, Up, Finding Nemo... wow there's actually quite a few). But, it's not often you can find a modern post-apocalyptic movie... delightful :) ...or is Warm Bodies a close one? I haven't seen it to know.
Wall-E is a simple empty robot at first glance, but fills you with wonder and love as he collects invaluable items the human world left aside, and of course, meets Eve. He's a hidden treasure! I wrapped minced meat in an egg sheet to form Wall-E's body and some remaining bits for his arms. Tofu is a different white from the rice so I shaped them into eyes and claws using a toothpick to imitate the screws in his binocular eyes. Eve's eyes were tricky because I wanted to imitate the glow using the shading of sli…

"Gotta Ace'm All!"

It's that time again. Or rather, there's always this time throughout our lives. Whether it's a test for school, finals for undergrad, or testing at work - there's always room for a jumpstart!
I decided to make a pikachu bento lunch featuring dugtrio and pokeballs to really bring pokemon to life. Energy, childhood, rest - just a few things this bento reminds me of that I wanted to bring out in the theme to help recharge his spirits for the final undergrad term :) 
Here's my first blog attempt to outline the bento-making process:
Pikachu:Head and Butt: Rice mixed with separated egg yolk, heated for 30sec. after combination.Blanket: Egg-white sheet (forgot to add a bit of corn starch and, as you can see, it broke!). Underneath the blanket you can put any surprise you'd like - I placed ribs and some spicy meat cubes to boost the blanket's shape.Tail: Cut sliced cheese into a thunderbolt shape before cutting seaweed (nori) for the bottom of his tail (I…

"Paperman Perseverance"

It's ironic, when you're at a 'young' point of your life - so many questions, too many stories, how do we decide what to relate to? Being told that, you're in your 20's! So you must live life to the fullest. And what that's supposed to mean is: You must meet as many people as you can, but build trust for true friendships that last a lifetime. You must not get into a serious relationship or it will bog you down. You must chase your dream (that you apparently have a clear picture of) so that you can work for a job you love, not just for money.  How many more things must we do that sound so inspiring but in reality is so hard to balance?

I guess since we're supposedly the most healthy and energetic at this age, we should do as much as we can huh. But what if you did do that and you work on yourself, yes. But there are always so many people around you that seem to have so many more chances - at work, at love... then the grass seems greener on the other sid…
