106. (Stripes, Polkadots and Capes)



Okay. So here's what happened and I am still really kind of unhappy. FIRST OF ALL, I have no idea how I did on my final I did today. The stress was killing me. HAHA. Well it's over now but I have a minor test to do in astronomy, but still... and yes, that is me using my macbook at a restaurant. SO WHAT PEOPLE DO IT THERE ALL THE TIME. and it's like right across campus so I could use the internet to go through my course material. I studied like 2 weeks for this exam, guys, and I still feel like a failure. Haha, hopefully I do good.

Here's what I ate with my boyfriend:



My boyfriend got the bibimbap ... yes, this is a Korean restaurant if you guys must know.



I got soon-dobu chigae. I finished every tofu morsel in that soup. So. Good.



Side dishes! My favourites are the kong-namul (beansprouts) and the glazed potatoes!



It looks like sushi but it's actually kimbap, a seaweed and rice roll. Tastes different, looks the same. While sushi is more sour-sweet because of the sugar-vinegar mixture, the rice in kimbap is seasoned with sesame seed oil. We had cheese kimbap. It usually consists of egg but my boyfriend is allergic so no egg here, folks!

So here's the outfit I wore to eat out with bf, study, and do my exam (in a beautiful convocation hall though!) and then go get some coffee afterwards with bf.



And here's the cape I wore with it. What a horrible picture. It doesn't do it justice at all. :( That's our shed in the background, by the way.



Also you may have noticed I got new glasses. I got them from Clearly Contacts and you can still buy them for the low price of 68 dollars. Well, it's not really THAT low but it's good for an awful prescription like mine.



Lastly here's my nails. I painted them with a base colour of red from Joe Fresh and then Nicole by Opi Tinsel colour. I forgot what it's called but it's glittery. I love the result! Oh and the ring is from Forever 21

I'm off to play some Nintendo DS now. :) Sorry if this is too much pictures! I love my posts to be rich with pictures hehe.

  6. @Nicolette: It is SO worth it to venture out to get some Korean food! :P I love this place I go to because it's only like 8 dollars for a pot of soon dobu chigae and it's good. Plus I'm too lazy to make it at home (even though it's really easy) something about restaurant made food makes it taste better, I can't put my finger on it.

    @Sherryl: Awe thanks. :) I'm glad you like my blog!

    Thanks everyone for the comments.

  14. All of that snow!! What is your secret to not freezing?? Or are you one of those people who really enjoy the feeling of cold. I keep wanting to wear skirts lately, but then the weather is 19 degrees, and I decide to stick with pants. lol

  15. AHH, the mixing of all the patterns is fantastic! Those are some snazzy looking shoes.

    I was thinking about getting my nails prepped and painted for the holidays and glitter is my number one idea! Sadly I don't have Christmas-y colors that are glittery, I'm gonna have to rough it with real sparkles. It might get tricky. Your nails just look so festive! :)

  17. Definitely been meaning to visit that restaurant and after seeing your food pictures, I just might get around to doing it. Those glasses are crazy adorable on you and I love the mixed patterns of your outfit =)

  18. @Dorice: Omg. If you go just prepare to be like kind of grossed out by the atmosphere. It is literally a hole in the wall and the menu makes the food look questionable but I swear it looks better live than it does in their menu pictures. And thanks! :)
