Taiwan: Ferris Wheel on Dream Mall

Summer passed by so quickly, and I've been so so so busy with school and trips! One of the places I went to during my summer vacation was Taiwan!! Yay!! I am so lucky to have the trip fit perfectly between summer school and beginning of Fall semester! I'm actually very busy with school, so posting this took a while... Back to Taiwan~ I went to so many places, ate so much food(no luck with gaining weight, but oh wells), saw so many things, took so many pictures! I can't possibly fit everything in one post.

One of the things I'd like to share is my experience at the Dream Mall in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. It's the biggest mall in Taiwan, and even East Asia! I was super excited to go! When I later found out that the Ferris wheel on top of the mall featured My Melody, I went totally nuts!! I could never pass over this opportunity being a My Melody fan. Not only does the mall have a Ferris wheel on top, but they also had Sanrio characters as a theme!! Super awesome!

Cooking Kinpira Gobo

There was a time in April when I was alone at home for weeks. I had to step it up and get myself cookin'! One of my biggest flaws? Laziness! And no, I'm not proud of it.....I thought this was a great chance to make things I like, and try to cook food I've never tried before! Did I ever mention I absolutely LOVEJapanese food?? Well,

626 Asian Night Market

Lack of posts lately, I know! I've been soooooooo busy with school and other things. I wanted to do a post on something that happened a while ago ( yes, over a month or more). If you live in LA, you might have heard about it before, or even participated. There was an event called 626 Asian Night Market, which basically tries to mimic the night markets in Asia, like in Taiwan or Hong Kong. There are supposed to be food vendors along a big street..but this one seemed to be quite small compared to the ones in Asia, due to the fact that the planners didn't foresee the CRAZY amount of people going there. There was a huge hype about it thanks to the power of media. 

As you can see in the following, we were stuck in traffic, and we weren't even in the city that was holding this event...we were in the neighboring city. It normally takes 20 minutes to get there, but it took a little over 2 hours....imagine the crowd that was waiting there. See the traffic light turning green? We're still not moving.

Oh, look the light turned yellow! But, only ONE car got to cross! Actually, it might have been just stuck in the middle of the intersection...

Strange Nightmare

I just woke up from a strange nightmare. So I'm going to type it all out before it slips out of my memory. It's going to get sort of messy and jumbled up from here. There was a checkpoint point where people pass through before they leave hte place(I can't remember what kind of place it mall?no... library?no....I can't remember) I was with my dad and a few other people that are not in my real life(made up people). Sometime before the checkpoint, some guy gave my dad a human finger with a huge ring on it and says it must be worth a my dad puts it in his backpack. There were many people who were about to approach the check point with us. The moment my dad passed the checkpoint it beeped, but no one but me notices. The lady that was over

Usoko Maker: My Cells Are Composed of...

Ready for a super random post? 
I actually discovered Usoko Maker a long time ago, but I think it's fun to do it again since I forgot my results. It also seems like they have many cool additions。I find all the makers so addicting. I think this is a good place to record my interesting results. Here's some of the maker results that I got:

When you zoom into my cells(細胞), you can see that it is composed of "優柔不断", which means indecisive. I

Bottega Louie

Macarons from Bottega Louie
 It's been a while. I meant to do this post a while ago because we came here a while ago. But, better late than never. I remember we were stuck in downtown LA, not knowing where to go to eat. There were just so many options. Then, it hit him that his friend told him he should try this place called Bottega Louie. We headed for Bottega Louie. There was valet parking, which means you have to pay fees. It was six dollars. The moment we

Lunch Date at Louise's Trattoria

Finally, a food post! The pictures aren't that great, but feast your eyes anyway!

I think it's flat bread topped with some cheese & cilantro with Olive oil & Balsamic vinegar(love!)

 On a Sunday afternoon, we decided on a whim to go to Louise's Trattoria in Old Town Pasadena. After the waiter took our order we were served these bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I absolutely love dipping this kind of bread in Olive oil+Balsamic vinegar! Very healthy and very tasty! For some reason, this bread just wouldn't soak in the vinegar; it would only absorb the oil :/

Pinkii's Outfit 9: Masculine, Really?

He refused to take pictures because he thought I looked too manly in this outfit. I was like, Oh come on, I rock any outfit, be it girly, manly, kiddy, etc. He told me, You're getting too conceited. Oh, really? In the end, I whined and got him to take the pictures.  Hehehe. Well, let's take a look, and see if it really is manly like he insisted.

Pinkii's Outfit 7: My Favorite I.S.O Top

Gotta love I.S.O

This is definitely my favorite top(or dress if you would call it) from the I.S.O collection. I love the combination of the top and the skirt(attached). I especially love the tie print and the uneven skirt. The tiny necklace you see there...I made it ^^..I had some spare time before school starts.  Sorry the picture didn't come out very clear. As  result, the booties didn't show up too well. I'm wearing my new Luxury Rebel Shoes Nora Lace up Booties.
