The Milky Way

I didn't plan to blog today, so please excuse my goofy faces haha.

My family and I went to Jade Imperial for today's dinner. My mum initially wanted Semanggi, but we figured the food court would be crowded, so we opted for Jade Imperial instead. People said their La Mian was good (and much cheaper too compared to some other restaurants which offer La Mian).

Originally craved for the first one, but it was sold out, sadly. I've always been a fan of Tom Yam, so I gave it a try.

Yum, yum! I'd give it 9 out of 10, really! I got runny nose thanks to the spicy soup, but oh well it was delicious!
Chrysanthemum tea as our drink<3

Candid shots snapped by my dad. I look quite elegant while eating and drinking, lol. Frankly speaking, I'm quite the opposite in real life XD

Durian Pudding -- my mum's order. Blah, I'm not a fan of durians, but I must admit that the presentation makes it look delicious :9

My choice and sis'. Mango pudding FTW, though we find it a bit over the top for the dessert to cost almost the same as the La Mian. The pudding is so-so, too.

The final verdict? The La Mian is a must-try, indeed! ;) I only tried their Tom Yam La Mian, but my dad, mum, and sis enjoyed their La Mian too. Their serving is not too big. I didn't really feel full after eating the La Mian, but then again maybe my stomach capacity is too huge :3

Oh, right. The title of today's post is from my top....which is my very first galaxy clothing! :) bought it at a local online shop. The top was actually a T-shirt. You can't see it in the pic, but I cut the neckline and the shoulder and make it a cut-out top. Now it's more wearable! (I'm not a fan of T-shirt)

My sis snapped this when we were at the mall... I pretended there weren't people haha.

Again, it's my favorite blazer ever from GOWIGASA

Excuse my random poses from this point on.

I used to think that this pair of high heels are very very high. Now when I wear it... It's not that high >_> it's chunky too, so it's really comfortable to wear.

Despite the goofy face, I like how this photo turns out!<3

Suddenly when we were about to leave, people start coming out too haha. They make a great background! :p

It's a bit blur-ish, but I love this pic! I'm literally staring at Pocky.
Thanks for reading!<3


Jatim Park Part II

First thing first, Happy Eid Mubarak for those who celebrate it! ;)

So here's the next part of my Jatim Park II trip. Sorry it took so long :p

Actually, this year is probably the first year ever when I feel there's so much going on in my life. I've never felt this busy haha. Since I'm the lazy type, I enjoy doing nothing a lot more than having too much to do. That's probably why in previous years, the only thing that mattered to me was my study. Even though I had the competence to teach in private courses, the ability to maybe do something art-related and some other things, I've never bothered to pursue those further.

Now this year, I suddenly have the urge to do things other than my main study, English Literature. I took Japanese, taught English, and now I'm considering to make my art into something sell-able. Taking Japanese is actually more than enough to make my life busy, imho XD my Sensei is so dedicated (and strict, too). She wants me to take an examination in December, so we're studying hard to reach that target. I have to memorize more than 20 kanji(s) per week, but as much as it makes my life more difficult, I've been enjoying every moment of the study.

*ahem* Without further ado, here are the pics I promised you ;)
I basically practiced taking photos there, so yeah, that's why there are lots of 'em :D

Honestly, I'm scared of horror houses haha. I can play horror games, but uh if it's in real life (though it's faked), I'd rather pass!

This is a rabbit we found wandering alone. I wonder if she's lost?

My eyes are so slanting here! Then again they're slanting, but I always do my best to make them appear bigger, lol.

I'm proud of how this one turned out! ;) pretty fountain, eh?

"I'm smeky!"

I love the serene expression of the white lion so much that I'd figured I'd put two pics.

I think I did good here, Rule of Thirds-wise ;)

Thanks for reading! :)


Jatim Park II Part I

I know, I promised to show some pics of my trip to Jatim Park II! ;)

At first, I was quite pessimistic of the place haha. Although I live in Surabaya, I have never visited Jatim Park, Batu Night Spectacular, Wisata Bahari Lamongan, you name it! So when my friends were all excited to go there, my only thought was, "Will it be sunny there?" (I have an avid fear of sun, frankly speaking :p)

Brace yourself for lots of photos!

A lonely little pony :(

A real back swan.

This is my favorite animal so far! He looks like a ball of fur when he's lying down like that. When he exercised, I was like *____*(cuteness overload). Now you know that I have soft spots for animals :3 (the chubby ones, particularly)

Look at how adorable he is when nomming his corn!

An albino kangaroo.

I'm completely happy on how this pic turns out. The fish's vibrant colors appear stunning!

Oh right, the electric eel. They even bother to put a warning sign in front of it haha.

I set the speed too low, but I guess it wasn't that bad. It had a kind of dreamy effect, don't you think?

Funny how they put the rabbit that way!

If those crocs are human beings, they're definitely a couple gazing at a sunset together :p

This one is rather interesting. When we got there, the snake had just finished changing skin.

More photos coming up next! Or probably I'll blog about my birthday next. Who knows :p
Thanks for reading! :)
