HAPPY NEW YEAR!


 Hey, blog, how are you doing lately?

Well, it's been 22 days since the New Year... I guess it's a little bit late to say this: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
I wrote ... 3 blog posts and never had a chance to post them. The first post was postponed because of my laziness, which I can't blame on anything Lol. However, the second one happened when my all photos in my memory card suddenly disappeared and the last one was the most painful one when I actually wrote a lot of things. I  even included the first 2 posts in it and somehow I assumed blog spot would automatically save everything, turned out it didn't ( it was supposed, though -_-). The end of this you probably know by now: I restarted my laptop without  even giving a glance, and all the things I wrote in the post are gone with the wind...  After that, I give myself the right to say god doesn't love me writing blogpost :))), which is a perfect excuse to be a procrastination queen. Honestly, I miss writing blog so much, it's ... just like you promised to keep in touch with a friend while you know you might not be able to keep that promise Lmao. Anyway, that's why I decide to put this as a top priority in my resolution list this year. Although, I didn't start the resolutions right away due to my bf visited me, then works, meeting friends, eating (Lol), and my laziness, which already accounted most all my times.  That's why I think it's better for me to share my resolution list this year on my blog, just to be like a guardian for me to keep up with the list.

So here my resolution this year:
1. write at least one post a week.
2. meditation - my mom always tells me to spend my morning at least 10' meditation just to clear my mind and learn how to focus. I did it for awhile, most in my difficult times and It helped me a lot to go through those times. Although I've stopped meditation lately,  I hope this year I would spend more times to meditate
3. Successfully creating a habit of exercising 5 Tibetan rites in every morning.
4. Read more books, which used to be my habit and I've dropped this habit about... 2 years I think T.T
5. For God's shake, clean my apartment.

and last but not least, time for some moments in the last month.

My private photographer every year this season. 

First time trying Ikea food. Really impressed of how delicious their food were with that kind of prices. The only downside is it looked like we ate a lot but the food weren't fulfilled at all 

We ordered a corn bread, the "have-to-order" Swedish meatballs, potato creamy soup, zunnichi cake and salmon lasagna, all for 15-17 USD 
Swedish meatball was pretty interesting, especially the lingonberry sauce. The meatballs itself were pretty smooth in texture, unlike regular meatballs, it's more like fishballs I think :)).  







I love how Forver21 has improved their styles in recent years with pretty good quality, especially in their contemporary line. All clothing pieces in these photos above ( and some below) are all from Forver21 contemporary line, except the shoes and the socks :)). 80% my clothes right now are from F21, the rest divides for Zara, H&M, and some other internet clothing sites, which proves to you how much I love F21 clothes. I even like them more than other higher clothing company in terms of quality and style. The clothes pieces feel pretty high-end and their design really suits Asian size ( maybe because the founder is Korean American? )


General porpoise donuts - the new donut place for Seattleites, which focuses on malasada donuts - a fried puffy donuts with creamy filling. The verdict: Not bad and so pricey. The good thing is that their interior design is open but still cozy. 

Lemon custard malasada. 





Best waffles I've tried. It's a Liege waffle not " all over places" Belgian Waffle. Crispy caramelize outside, fluffy, but still a little bit dense. Yum, Yum. I'm so sad this place could be closed down by now due to its poor location and because of that, I purchased a waffle maker to make  crispy waffles myself :)) Lmao.


Nori fries.






what is better than a boiling hotpot for a cold winter night.


Best ramen in town. Honestly, we didn't intend to try this place because our ramen memory in Japan is too beautiful and none of us really wanna destroy the Japan beautiful Ramen bowl in our minds. But then I was too lazy to cook and this place is 4 blocks from my house with  a long line to its door everytime we stopped by, so we decided to give it a try. Well, the conclusion is ... the ramen is too freaking good,  almost resembles the ramen we tried in Japan, except the chasiu pork isn't good since the one in Japan my bf could finish the pork but at this place he had to substitute the chasiu with something else, though their marinated soft-boiled eggs are highlighted in the ramen bowl (probably better than Japan) beside their creamy broth. It was so good that we came back to this place nonstop despite the long lines every time we came. 




First snow in 2016





-->> for those who are interested in my blog drafts since I never had a chance to post them :)). 

"I've been kinda busy recently to adapt with my new job, but since I've promised to myself of keeping writing blog as a habit, I guess it's time to post  up now.  I was trying to finish all my summer stories first before going into fall diaries, and then winter. That being said,  I'm late to all the  deadlines, like it's literally winter now, and the weather already got  colder & freeze  and somewhere in the west of where I live, snow is covering all over places Lol. Hopefully, after this post, Ill be able to post my continued Boston- NY- DC diaries.
...
Well, this post was supposed to post earlier but then once again, all the data in my flash card disappeared magically for no reason and I had no idea why, or because I somehow knew but didn't believe it Lol.  I was panicked for a moment because I'm not the type of person that would transfer all the data to computer/hard drive every time plug the flash card in. Anyway, the point here is that my life was saved by a program called Diskdrill. This program is especially for those  who use Mac and often use USBs/hard drives/memory cards. It completely found all the missing data and saved my  panicked soul so download it, because who knows one day you would be into situation like me ( ... keke)"
