A few days ago I gave my cork board a much needed update. It’s been months since I last cleaned it since I was too lazy I’d been putting it off since I got a new wall calendar which I write all my important dates on, so I didn’t really need to pin study related notes onto it. But recently I’ve been taking photos with my dslr again, so I thought I’ld print them out and stick them up
So this is what it looks like now! I think it looks a big empty but I can always print more photos later.
- Front design I created for my club’s membership card
- Artwork by my favourite artist Dric
- Artwork of my favourite warlord Masamune Date
- Various tags from Arpakasso alpaca plushies and other things
- Trading cards from the series Uta no Prince-sama
- Gachapon items and a cherry fragrance sachet
- Cardboard pouch I got from a manga magazine when I was 14/15
- Group shots of my friends and I
- Mini pamphlet of one of my favourite games, Last Window
- Snapshots of my dolls, figurines and one of a street in Thailand
- Cute paper cat
As you can see, it’s pretty much hobby related lol. I’ve got a lot of photos with my friends on facebook so I only felt I should print out just a few
Here’s a close up of the photos which I’ve printed out I like printing my photos out at Office Works, since 99% of the time they print out exactly the way I’ve edited them. I’ve only had a few occasions when the tone may be slightly off, but otherwise I’ve always had the results I’ve wanted. Once I printed them elsewhere and the results where awful – the colours were off and they came out too bright ugh
As you can see on my cork board, I cut some photos smaller so they don’t look too cover too much space. I was trying to make them look like a polaroid but some of my measurements where off haha One day I’ll get them all even lol.
A few days ago my uni’s Japanese society held an okonomiyaki event For those who don’t know, it’s basically a savoury pancake with cabbage and other ingredients (it depends what you want to put in it) and then you’ll usually add on the okonomiyaki sauce on top, as well as mayonnaise, seaweed and bonito flakes
Cooking at uni – it’s so useful having BBQs on campus!
Spreading the sauce
My friend decorated with the mayonnaise hehe
Ta-da! The finished dish
Have you tried okonomiyaki before? I highly suggest you do if you have the chance – it’s very delicious and filling
I had lots of fun eating what my friends had made and mingling around. I always enjoy attend food at events at uni since 1. free food! and/or 2. it’s usually cultural so you can experience different things #lifeofastudent
A few days ago I received my limited edition Japanese 3DS! I was really excited since Animal Crossing was the main reason why I got a 3DS and I’ve been waiting since they announced the game at E3 in 2010 lol.
The main reason why I decided to get it in Japanese is because I’ve always wanted to get a Japanese 3DS since the console is region locked (WHY NINTENDO ) some games such as Taiko no Tatsujin will never get localised overseas, plus I like how it comes with the game preinstalled. So I decided to give in buy it At first I was worried that my Japanese wasn’t good enough to play it since it’s pretty text heavy, but so far I can understand most of the text kirakira
Back of the box
One of the major differences in this version compared to the older games is that you’re the Mayor! The old mayor has retired onto an island (which you can access later) so now it’s up to you how you want to design your village and how it’s run. You can choose to build community projects such as adding in a camp site, bus shelter, lamp posts and build things like a cafe or police station.
Doesn’t my character look cute?
