Taiwan Travel Photo Diary • December 2013 • Part 4

5 notes Reblog Comments

Okay, I lied. I took too many photos so I have a part 5 — * insert Cheon Song Yi’s oopsie face here*

Next up — Lanyang Museum. 

Rain man favors Taiwan. It’s perpetually raining in this country. 

Not really a huge fan of museums but … WOW. 

My favorite photo :)) The squirrel creature is judging you. 

Cute baby boy!

My ama (grandma) — but she forgot to drop a coin //_// “I don’t see anything it’s just fog”. hahaha.

***

More food before heading to the next location — hot springs!

I urge you to drop by a hotspring if ever you do visit Taiwan. The atmosphere is sooo relaxing. 

Too cold for ice cream.

Didn’t want to remove my socks and boots so I just took photos :)) 

This dog having the best nap of his life.

Bicycles! Tricia's mom recently got her one. I am so excited for her :)) Now… if only she'd allow me to teach her. kekeke. Hi Tricia! I promise not to push you off a cliff :3

Intricately carved wooden fairies inside one of the small stores. Ended up lurking around here while the ‘adults’ were having their backs massaged. 

Hope you enjoyed the photos! Last installment coming up! <3 Excited to post everything already so I can share my photos from my recent Osaka, Japan trip with Tricia. Yahuu!

I’m not short, Keita’s just too tall…okay?

KEITA CAN I HAVE YOUR THIGH GAP ? :))

image

While waiting for Jade, we decided to have light lunch. We initially wanted to eat at Ippudo but the line was CRAZY LONG!

Ended up at Linguini ‘star star’ FINI ‘star star’. — lol, I’m so annoying.

image

image

image

Keita was super hungry he wanted to drink the Olive Oil ! lol, jk.

image

Hello! My eyesight is so bad that my lens make my eyes look like two coin bank slits -_-

image

Market O Crackers from Keita~ available at S&R but you have to buy a whole box :))

image

Took photos since the interiors and wall art are incredible. Can you spot the hidden Manny Pacquiao in the photo above?

image

Oh look, it’s a Carabao and Dr. Jose Rizal.

image

Mozzarella Sticks!

image

Is it obvious that we love cheese?

image

Keita posing with his Kirin Lemon Candy. Got him loads of lemon flavored goodies from my recent Osaka, Japan trip since he’s a huge lemon fan :))

I swear I won’t be surprised if he turns into a lemon one day ._.

image

Selfie time! Go stalk him on Instagram — @leekeita87 . And yes, he can speak Tagalog :))

image

Hatsune Miku bag from Data Blitz. 

OT: Can’t wait for the new PS Vita x Mercury Duo because…BABY PINK.

DROOL WITH ME:

image

I haven’t met you but I love you already. It’s coming out this November 2014 —wao, wao! Time to save up~!

***

Sole reason why we decided to go to Mega Mall instead of our favorite Shangri-la mall *drumroll please*

St. Marc Café [サンマルクカフェ]

image

Japan’s popular café finally hits Manila! First Philippine branch is located at SM Megamall’s Mega Fashion Hall. Heard they’re going to open a second branch in Glorietta — wheee!

Shangri-la and Rockwell Mall too, please! 

The café was jam-packed when we dropped by. Luckily, the chococro gods were on our side so we got a table after around 5-10 minutes of lurking around. 

image

Waiting for a table is not a problem though as there are drool-worthy displays up in the front and just before you reach the counter.

image

For all the matcha lovin’ people out there!

image

Definitely something to celebrate about. LOOK AT THAT PUDDING :))

image

The famous choco cro! Was torn between Strawberry Daifuku Choco cro and the regular Choco co but I ended up ordering the regular one. Have to go back and try the ichigo daifuku chococro soon. 

image

PS: If you’re planning to order a box of chococros, better order it at least 30 minutes before you’re leaving the area. We had to wait for 45 minutes for ours :o But it’s worth it so… not complaining! 

image

image

image

image

Delightful desserts, hihihi.

image

They have sandwiches too !

image

Jade and Keita’s order.

image

1, 2, 3 … WOWWWW!!!

image

image

It never ends.

image

Jade pretending to be bored :)) — Instagram @jademc21

image

Orders taking too long? No problem! :))

image

Milk tea for me, coffee for Jade, and chococros for everyone! :D

image

"Are you done taking the photo? I want to eat it already."

image

Lol, My face is filled with utmost glee. Pretentious. I didn’t even order these :))

image

image

Panda wallet!

image

Cutie~! Thanks for the matchy-matchy Trissey sheep, Jade!

Highlight of the day:

image

YES!!! Finally got our Super Smash Bros. game! Thanks to Keita who pre-ordered it for us :))

image

We got freebies too! /so much fandom.

Game Sta-to!

image

Can you guess who owns which Nintendo?

Clue: I like pink.

image

WOOT! Demo version sucked cause only 3 characters were unlocked. Full version has sooooo many hidden characters - but so hard to beat ._.

image

Wow, thanks for covering my face Jade.

image

image

***

OH and you guys should try KimuKatsu at Shangri-la New Wing :D So yummy!

Bye for now~! <3

It’s been raining really hard for the past few days. Thankfully, mister sun decided to show up today; so I decided to wear something colorful ! Yay for good vibes :D

White Short Sleeve Florals Print Dress from Sheinside.com

White Wedges from Golddot

Yellow Skirt from Bershka

Pink Clutch from Coach

Forgive my ‘sleepy face’. Woke up early so I can take advantage of the early morning lighting <3 I hate taking photos during lunchtime /squinty eyes.

I really, really need a haircut. Can anyone suggest a good salon in The Fort area? :o I haven’t been to a salon in more than 6-8 months! LOL — and I call myself a girl. Yup.

Definitely going to my ‘favorite colorful dresses collection’!

Everyone please say hi to Riz ! <3 She’s behind all these awesome photos! Thank you!

Colorful ‘Pop’ Stripes • Nail Art Tutorial

108 notes Reblog Comments

Admit it, you miss my nail art tutorials. HA HA HA. Kidding :) 

Anyway, this is super easy! 

You will need the following :

• Nail Polish (3-5 colors)

• Scotch tape although I prefer to use Washi tapes since they don’t adhere as much.

• Scissors / Cutter

image

***

Step 1:

Make sure to do this BEFORE painting you nails.

Cut thin strips of your tape ~ (quantity depends on how many stripes you want)

image

I used a striped washi tape to make my life easier *wink*

Tip: You can make some strips thinner / thicker ! (Mix thin and thick strips for a more fun look)

***

Step 2:

Pick 3-4 colors ~ Paint vertically or horizontally. You don’t have to be super neat. It’s also best if you coat it twice to make sure the colors are bold and vibrant :)

image

Should look like this :

image

PS: Before moving on to the next step, please make sure it’s completely dry. (Dry for 15~20 minutes to be safe)

***

Step 3:

Fill in the remaining nails with your preferred ‘top coat/color’. 

image

image

Tip: Use solid black or white for a more vibrant contrast,

***

Step 4:

image

When you’re 101% sure that your polish is dry, take your washi strips and apply as such:

image

image

Make sure you stick it on well but don’t press on it too much as the polish might come off when you peel it off later.

image

***

Step 5:

Fill it in using your preferred ‘top coat / color’. Make sure the colors beneath it doesn’t show — at least 2 coats/swipes of your top coat.

image

image

Wait for about 5~10 seconds before peeling the tape off. 

***

Last step:

Add a clear coat to seal in the design.

image

You’re done! :) Super easy right? 

I would love to see yours (if ever you decide to try this out) ~ tag me on Instagram if you do :) — @crissey8
