It was a rainy day..

Been having a serious sleeping problems lately ~ the oppose of insomnia Z_Z! Constant napping and waking up feeling like crap like I spent lots of energy sleeping.. Could it be that invisible sleeping monster that forces you to sleep so it can suck all your energy??

Anyway friends got me out of the house for a ‘sunset’ photoshooting session just yesterday omg productive! not really because I just wanted to prevent sleep =_=; So quick post since it’s fresh off photoshop!!

..  as you can see from the title we got rained out =_=; nice timing! Taken at Wilsons Point, Brisbane.

I’m not so good with landscape shots ;_; I suppose this is what  new theme/aim of the photoshoot OMINOUS/impeding doom clouds  – apparently good landscape shots require a particular percentage of clouds so here is my attempt~ Mission accomplished? Maybe??

My idea of a landscape shot ^^a;;  I much prefer this one~ What do you think? Didn’t even look like it was raining!

I think this tree sets the mood a bit better .. looks so depressing~

Meanwhile.. while everyone else was shooting the Storey Bridge.. I was on the wet grass

and saw this guy~ hanging out in the rain!

♥ Se7en – literally with my heart bokeh cap~ can you see? can you see?? background full of hearts ♥♥
Gave up on the sunset/city lights shot and headed back home.. while at a traffic light and rain spilling down my windshield making this nice bokeh effect !!

Hmm since I edited these so fast I should backtrack on my photos from Malaysia and Singapore, Cloudland Birthday, Mos Burger and Gallery of Modern Arts.. Post these up soon! Oh and Happy late Easter ! Remember the meaning is not about chocolate eggs~ Although I did have a weird dream about having a bunny for Easter but you don’t need to know that hehehe..

Love love ekilove

Last month was a busy month for me~ it the midst of all that there were bigger things happening in the world.. Its all so sad… also I’m very relieved that people I know were not hurt and are okay and that there are lots of people supporting them.

One person being the lovely Eki ~ I couldn’t help but order when  her shop EkiLove was donating 75% of her proceeds to Japan which is always a good reason to spend money =3  Plus her handmade things are always so pretty~ On top of that there is free shipping for orders over $85 US and she includes a sheetmask and nail stickers as free gifts.

Ordered a total of 4 items but I only took photos of two of them ^^; One was a gift – it was the Love Neko necklace and the other was the Vintage floral bow headband – I was wearing it at the time XD

Everything comes nicely packaged *happy*

Sparkle Sparkle!! Moon and Star necklace / Elegant Hime bracelet

Please support EkiLove and Japan

I’m sure Japan is on its way to getting back to normal soon, they are so efficient like that! Must make my 7th visit there soon =3 Perhaps when my brother Shin finally gets over there in October! ((Even though you were suppose to go this month in April – it was the best decision for parent’s piece of mind Mum and Dad will be happier knowing you are safe.))

Pray for a better 2011 and no impending doom in 2012!!

G-Market Round 2

This purchase was way back from Feburary.. Its been THAT long!

Since I won that Gmarket top blogger I had to spend it right? Funny thing is that I still have left over money in my Gmarket account.. =_=’ due to the fact I had to split my order into two and then combine it back for shipping = FAIL GMARKET – I hope you fix this soon! or reward me with another 50 000 won~ (hehe.. pretty please?)

You see.. to use the money you have in the account means making an order thats less than or equal (including estimated shipping) to the amount in your account – I had about 57 000 won – it was a bit of juggling with items to make it add up somewhat to that = PAYMENT 1 via GAccount

Then anything else I wanted to order had to be made into a new order which included another EMS shipping estimate.. of course because they overestimate, I got charged more because of two seperate orders that were charged individually (ugh.. am I even making sense?) = PAYMENT 2 via Paypal

Then combining it into one shipment – resulting in a new shipping estimate which is less because order 1 and order 2 charges are overestimated = OVER PAYMENT back into GAccount (24 000 won)

At least you can use combined shipping when you’ve already put an order through and it hasn’t been sent yet and  wanted to add more to it… but I wouldn’t really recommend it since you’ll be paying more for postage (which you may get back into your Gmarket account if they have overestimated it)

TLDR –> Better to do ONE BIG order if you can

Postage on this order took a little longer than my previous order – say 72 hours? Still not bad but I was expecting fast like first Gmarket order.. guess it really depends on the individual sellers

Not many packages inside T_T!

White lace shorts ~ $19 AU + free hair ties (not shown)

Got the black one in my first order so now I got a white one ~ nice for wearing under dresses or long tees

Seller – 당고언니
Listing – Lace shorts

Tony Moly – Peach hand cream ~$4.50 AU / Black gel eyeliner  $8 AU+ free samples

Bought this hand cream when I went to Korea last – its smells sooo good.. not greasy but moisturing and apparently anti-wrinkle? Packaging in a cute peach container may look like something else according to other people XD Gel eyeliner is pretty good too, brush attached looks convenient (coz I kept losing my Kate eyeliner brush) but isn’t that great  =_= that or I’m not using it properly (keeps retracting on me)

Seller – 토니모리 본사
Listing – Gel eyeliner

Etude House – Proof 10 Jewerly Pencil ~ $5.50 AU

Needed a new pencil liner – it was the only thing I liked from Etude House.. probably because Dara from 2NE1 was advertising it XD
Originally wanted blue because of her but then logic struck and thought sparkling black is probably more in my colour usage range haha

Seller – 에뛰드하우스 직영샵
Listing – Proof 10 Jewerly Pencil

Shorts and boardies $35 AU total + free pull string bag and beach ball

Needed some casual beach stuff for my trip to Malaysia (o_o I could no longer fit in my old boardies omg~) and yes you can buy couple pairs lol
The boardies were good quality ones and the shorts material was a bit thinner than expected but okay not like its gonna rip

and.. thats it! Didn’t buy much this round but felt like I paid more ._.
