Last Tuesday was my birthday so I went to Burger Project with friends. It opened recently and there were conflicting reviews such as “it was amazing” to “it was like eating a burger at McDonald’s”, so I was hesitant to eat there since I wanted to go somewhere enjoyable for my birthday. But in the end I thought I might as well go there since I would one day regardless of when.

We went in around 1pm and I was surprised to see it was so packed (since I thought the hype had died down lol), but we didn’t have to wait long and managed to find a table to sit at. I ordered the cheese burger (grass fed beef, cheese, onion, pickles, tomato, lettuce and secret sauce – $8.90) and house made chips ($4.90). The food was okay, the beef patty was a bit salty though and the chips weren’t anything special (I like them really crispy) but it was edible which I guess is the main thing :ugh2

For that price and being a gourmet burger place, I’ll rather eat at Grill’d. It’s slightly more expensive but the burgers are filling and I like how the buns are thicker. The chips are amazing there too!

    

For dessert we went to this cafe which has lovely desserts and a really nice interior design. It used to be called Princess Coco, but it shut down for a few months and it’s now called The Corner Cafe on Day. My friends treated me this fruity cheesecake? I can’t exactly remember what is it because I have a short memory haha, but it was really delicious! It’s wrapped around in dark chocolate and everything tasted really nice together.

Besides eating, we went to Capitol Square to play on the UFO catchers and E won a kaomoji alpaca! There’s also this huge snowglobe at Market City where it has fake snow (I think they’re soap suds?) falling and various snow and Christmas decorations inside. I thought it was an interesting Christmas attraction for a shopping centre lol.

     

Some gifts I got from friends :deer Barakamon is one of my favourite series from this year, the relationships and interactions between the characters are really cute and hilarious. I also got this cute bracelet and Instax Share SP-1 printer! It’s a smartphone printer so I can print out photos if I haven’t got instax printer with me.

     

I also want to use the opportunity to say thanks to those who read my blog for the support! Especially those who have followed me for a while. I’ve been a bit lax in posting regular updates since last year because I mainly post photos through instagram nowadays but I’m working on changing that.

I’ve been blogging via wordpress/my own domain for about 4~5 years now, initially I started out wanted to post about my casual interests being inspired by other bloggers but now I’ve developed other interests and hobbies which I’m still considering whether to post here or to still keep it rather general. One thing I’m trying to get into is beauty/skincare reviews – I’ve been really into cosmetics for the past two years but was unsure whether I’ll be able to write substantial previews on them but we’ll see how it goes lol. So far I’ve decided to have a posting schedule of posting something related to lifestyle/interests then reviewing and so on.

Every view, click and comment is appreciated so I hope to have your continuous support in the future puuu

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post like this so I thought I’ll do something like an update post!

I’ve been using this backpack for a few months now, I usually like roomy bags, especially backpacks, since I carry around a jacket/cardigan/sweater since I get cold easily.  It’s lightweight and has a few compartments so it’s perfect :teehee Also I tend to carry a lot of things with me, I’m the type of person who always overpacks haha.


I like carrying around my mini instax 90 to practice taking instant film photos. I haven’t been taking photos with it recently (besides cosplay shots) so I’ve been trying to take photos of other things such as scenery, flowers etc.


Recently I got a new wallet from kikki.K which I love! It’s a bit puffy and reminds me of a strawberry. I’ve had my old wallet for around 7 years, it was the first thing I bought off eBay, so I was was in need for an upgrade! First time having a long wallet – I like all the slots for all my cards which makes them easier to see and use.

My Rilakkuma coin/pass case is also something I’ve owned for a few years, I think it was the first thing I bought from Strapya-World while I was still in high school. I like using it to hold all my coins so they don’t dirty or weigh down my wallet. It’s also handy for the Opal pass (reloadable transport card) as I put in in my front bag pocket, so it’s easy to take out to take and scan when I need to use it.


I probably carry too many makeup items with me but I don’t know how to cut down! :=_=U I’m still looking for a small brown eyeshadow palette so I probably will have to cut down on what I carry out when I get it lol. I like carrying items just incase I need them, so I don’t need to buy them if I do need it while I’m out. Also I like carrying hair wax incase I’m rushing out of the house I can quickly style my hair while I’m on the bus or something.

Something I always have to have with me is my portable battery charger. I picked it up while I was in Hong Kong and it’s so handy since I can use it to charge my 3DS or iPhone while I’m on the go. I can use it to charge my phone fully around 3~4 times? So it’s more than enough atm, not sure if it’ll change when I get a new phone. I also really like it due to the size and texture of the casing. It’s made from some type of silicone? so it gets dirty easily but it’s nice to touch :eheh

I also usually carry my 3DS with me. I own two due to the region locking and because I want to play games in Japanese which I know will never get localised overseas (such as Taiko no Tatsujin). I currently carry around my Australian one atm since I’ve been playing Fantasy Life on it. It’s a good way to pass the time on public transport when I don’t want to browse on my phone.


I like having a spare bag with me incase I go shopping and bags are always useful aren’t they? This tote bag is one from my uni’s anime society and features a few of my favourite characters.

This plastic water bottle bag is really handy as it becomes really light as you drink water. I think it holds around 500mL so it’s handy whether I’m at uni or just out with friends.

        

Here are some other bags I use. I mainly use my Hershel bag for Uni, it’s so great for holding textbooks! I like really the padding of the straps and back. I got the largest size so it would have more room for my laptop, but then my laptop broke haha. It’s also a good bag for travelling, I use it as a carry on bag for when I’m on a plane.

And the other bags depend on my outfit or mood. I really like the dark blue shoulder bag because it has elephants on it and I got it when I was in Thailand. Also the American Apparel x WC (Chinatsu Wakatsuki) canvas bag is another favourite because WC used to be my favourite brand and I like how it’s shaped like a plastic bag :blood
