Happy (belated) New Year ✨ After (yet another) break from blogging I’m feeling refreshed and ready to post again! For the past few years I’ve felt like I’ve been in this repetitive loop in what I’ve been doing which didn’t really inspire me to post anything. But recently I’ve thought about the direction and the sort of things I want to talk about in my blog and also I’ve been getting into new things so I feel pumped again to update. I think it’s nice to have my own little space in the web and talk about things which I don’t really talk about with friends 😂
So what has happened since I last posted? I went back to short hair as the bleached ends of my hair went all dry and horrible. My hair got really damaged when I went to America so I’m not sure if it’s because of the water or because I didn’t use my usual haircare products or a combination of both 😰 So back to bobs and short hair it is! This time I chose to get my hair dyed a dark ash brown. I’m really pleased with the way it turned out, though my ends are still bleached so currently I have an ombre going on 😄 This snap below was taken on the day of my haircut✂

I also finally got new frames. I was supposed to get new frames like 2 years ago but I was lazy and forgot so I only ended up getting my new pair last month. In a way I’m glad though, otherwise I wouldn’t have gotten this design! I love the gradient from silver to white on the front and the hearts on the side 😍 It looks gold though since my iPhone is gold.

Another thing which got upgraded was my phone! I was torn between getting the rose gold or gold iPhone 6s, but I settled for getting the gold colour. If the rose gold was more bronze I think I would have gotten it since I’m not too fond of pink. After plunging into the world of mobile gaming, I went for the 64gb storage. I feels so good to have heaps of storage to download a lot of apps and not to have to keep moving my photos to my desktop 👌

Another big thing that happened to me last year was that I travelled to the U.S and Canada! It was an interesting experience, especially to see what life is like there compared to what I’ve seen on tv and to hear all the different accents haha. I only spent 3 days in Canada, but I really liked visiting Montreal city and I hope to go to Vancouver one day.

And most exciting of all, I finally went to Japan earlier this year! 😭 I applied for a cultural program in November last year and got chosen, so I went on an all expenses paid trip to Tokyo and Yamaguchi. Even though I was only there for 8 days, I had an amazing time. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m more used to Asian/Japanese culture but I felt much more comfortable being there compared to my trip in America. I definitely see the appeal of why so many people like to travel to Japan, and hope to go back again next year 🌸

Sorry for the lack of posting last month! I got a pretty bad case of hay fever and sinus infection which last 2~3 weeks so I thought I’ld take a break from posting :3seal

Recently I started cycling again! I haven’t ridden a bike since high school so I was really rusty haha, it took a while to get used to the balance. It was nice to experience riding around a park again! I used exercise weekly by riding a bike or scooter when I was younger.

We rode around Bicentennial Park and it was only $15 for an hour so I hope I can go more often to add some variety in my exercise routine  :happy

     

After that we had Korean food! I love Korean food but I think it’s a bit expensive eating it in the city but this place was decent and they refilled the side dishes often :kaohuhu I really like eating dolsot bibimbap so if you follow me on instagram you’ll probably notice I always order it if I’m not eating fried chicken haha.

Uniqlo had a deal where you could buy two UT tees for $19.90, so a friend I got matching tees :eheh I’m not really a big fan of Toy Story but I like the aliens and I haven’t gotten a navy tee in my wardrobe yet. I was surprised about the fitting of the size though, I thought I would be a XS since that’s what I got for the LINE tees, but XXS ended fitting me better. A note to myself to double check the sizing for future in purchases incase they’re too baggy!

     

Also managed to get another Cony item at Capitol thanks to certain people :hearteye2 My collection is slowly growing!

I haven’t eaten frozen yoghurt in ages so I went to Noggi with Ayu. I think the hype of it has died down and also my taste has gone back to thicker yoghurt (This is my absolute favourite!). We decided to try their signature ranges – Ayu got the Apple Crumble and I got the Green tea one. I wouldn’t say it was anything amazing but it was interesting eating froyo with red beans and was refreshing as an afternoon snack :glee2

      

I went to Circa Espresso with friends for brunch. It’s a cozy cafe with not much seating space so I’m glad we went in early! I can’t remember the exact name of the dish but it had granola chunks, yoghurt and fruit. Unfortunately the granola was overcooked, and as much as I tried to soften it with the yoghurt it was pretty inedible :sobbb I probably like ended up eating 70% of it before I gave up lol. The person at the cashier was kind enough to not charge me for the meal and was apologetic about it. Nice customer service!

Despite my experience, I wouldn’t mind going back there to try their dishes with sourdough instead. What my friends ate look really nice, so I’m glad they enjoyed their dishes puuu
