December Update [12-27-2009]

Today is my last day of work for the week and I'm so happy since Christmas is officially OVER-!!!! ^___^
Now I can focus on New Years, the more important holiday of the month. u.u

I recently found this cool blog with a ton of Japanese recipes. I'll be looking over that for now. Arigatou Maki-Saaaaaan~! I'm excited because I got this idea to make New Year Soba (Toshikoshi Soba) and I do love cooking. Sadly, I've been unbalanced and been mostly baking. So far, I've baked cookies, cakes, and mochi (note: learn to make butter mochi). I should've posted pics on here but the chiffon cake that I attempted wasn't as good-looking as I hoped it would look and with the others, they were nothing new. I still have to perfect the chiffon cake.

Back to the soba, I'm so excited and I can't wait to go to the Pacific Ocean Market downtown to buy ingredients and some other goodies. ^o^

My interests in Japan Deco and fashion have also been revived so I might actually be enthusiastic about shopping for a change! Perfect timing, right after Christmas when all the sales come out!

I finally finished re-reading the last Harry Potter book. My interest in the Twilight books died out while I was reading Breaking Dawn. Then I switched to HP. My only question at the end of that book is where all the people who murdered went when they were killed. Did they go to the happy place Harry went to after they died? That wouldn't make sense since they wouldn't deserve such happiness in the afterlife but then Voldemort's ripped soul was there so I don't know...

This semester of school ended and I'm finally free of artistic obligation. Now I spend my time drawing what 'I' want (which is mostly anime/manga styled drawings) and it has never been better. x3

I took to watching Tenchi Muyo [the original OVA's] with Karyn this past week. This series is hilarious. Me and Karyn were loah (laughing our asses off) the whole time. You can say we were re-fueling our 'Asian Sensation'. We also listened to Big Bang and Gakupo Vocaloid throughout the night while I drew anime. lol

We both sort of got out of the drama watching phase although Karyn is nagging me at night to watch dramas. The thing is, I haven't found a decent drama for a long time and have yet to search for another one that's worthy of our time.

I'm really proud of myself right now since I sent Grams a New Years letter. I haven't written to her in a long time and I feel somewhat bad about it. Buuuut.. she's never really written back so can you blame me? It's sometimes difficult to get the motivation to write to someone whom you dont' know if they care or not whether you're writing to them.

That's about it for now. Cooking/baking, anime/manga, dramas, music, and shopping. That's my life for now.
