Eye Eat 5

I was literally starving after my Biology lab, and this squishy,soft, and sweet (triple S) delight was my saviour. This is a Vietnamese treat called "bánh bò" (this is the steamed version), and it is absolutely delicious. It's made from rice flour, water, yeast, and sugar (Wikipedia wooo!). Looks good eh(picnik, you work wonders)?

Show Me The Colour!

It's rather sad to say that my weekend consisted primarily of my research of... the flatworm. That's right, yours truly spent her Friday night (and more) learning about the glories and wonders of the majestic creature (not). Okay, so I might be bitter about university right now. BUT ONWARD. I spent some time at a friend's house and was able to indulge in some goodies.

Egg rolls and dumplings!

Playing around with my melon like a kid. This may or may not be a reference to a particular statue at a school on the West Coast. 100 points if you get it.

Instant noodles! I can't remember the last time I had this (tends to avoid anything instant like the plague)

My outfit for Friday (since wearing pyjamas all day Saturday doesn't count as an outfit). Since I don't have a tripod, I can only show the items I wore. If I've noticed something, almost all the things I wore are old. I tend to wear the stuff I love until it falls apart... and it looks like some of my things are well on their way...I really need to go thrifting sometime :(

V-neck: Off the Wall; tank: Old Navy; cardigan: H&M; scarf: gift; jeans: Seduction; belt: Kenneth Cole; shoes: Vans

The Little Things

TGIF. This week has been a rough ride for a couple reasons, but I'm glad to have made it through sane (kind of). Here are the pictures I promised to post (taken on a Nikon point and shoot). These were all taken in the late afternoon, as the sun was setting after my Calculus lecture. Honestly, the camera doesn't do any of the pictures justice- aka I personally think it's a piece of junk, but poor university students can't be too picky eh?

A nice angle of the bridge of the university's Japanese garden. I'd love to take some shots with a friend when spring comes and the trees are in bloom. :)

My personal favourite of the day, there's something about the perspective that I particularly like (ignore the time stamp of doom).

(at this point I learned how to disable the annoying time stamp)

Okay, I promise that I wasn't trying to stalk these men, I just wanted to compare the size of them to the mountains and sky(worst explanation ever).

My feeble attempt to make an artistic shot with my necklace (gifted by my lovely sister) and my glasses. I'm trying! :(

Blog, meet my boots. Boots, meet my blog. I scored these babies during Boxing Day at Winners for about $30. There's something about the texture and lacing that makes me feel 110% more badass.

It was cold that day, and I was too stubborn foolish to put on my mitts. The result? Terribly numb and pink hands. And I am still doing this to myself. Sorry hands.

It's 1 in the morning and I have a ton of stuff to tackle over the weekend (and Chinese New Year is approaching too!), so I'll be hitting the hay. Or spending some more time on fb, then complaining. Thanks for bearing with the image heavy post! :)

Eye Eat 4

Okay, so I might have cheated with this one - an old picture of delicious orange drink from a wedding reception. But whatever, it still looks good...right? WELL, thanks to some handy dandy photo manipulation (okay it still looked good before that). Look at the orange... and the blue... and the orange... Okay, I'll stop. And get back to working like the diligent university student I am.

P.S. I really should start drawing again, I feel like my skills have seriously deteriorated while I was getting to know Quantum Mechanics. :(

Who's that girl?

My photo
Hola, I'm an aspiring illustrator scientist (do those exist?) who occasionally dresses well. Lets be friends. :)
