Raising the Bar

31 Mar

Ever seen one of these guys around?

Yeah, a breakfast bar for those on the go… people like me who have no time for breakfast…

I think it’s a great idea but man, what the heck are in these things??

All I could taste was sugar, sugar, and more sugar… and sometimes oats but mainly sugar. Is the sugar there to help keep the bar together or is it meant to put me into a sugar induced hyper state?? Still it was yummy…

I would eat it if I had to but… I would prefer not to eat it as much… too much sugar!! I felt like I was going to go into a sugar shock or something.

Anyways, this bar sure indeed rose the bar (of my blood-sugar levels that is).

Allergies

30 Mar

Ever got those really bad allergies that you just can’t do anything plus being sick on top of that? Well thats what happened to me lately thus not as much posts as I usually put up. Just want to put it out there to the world… allergies are serious things!!! don’t take it lightly like my mom…. the reason why I got sick in the first place….

To understand my allergies I’ll do my best to explain it through photos

Allergy #1

 =  

Yeah, both rashes and hives plus the onslaught of headaches and muscle soreness…. in the end me not feeling so great.

Allergy #2

 =

Skin irritation from touching mangoes… I can eat it but I can’t touch the actual thing…. sorry mom can’t cut the mangoes for you….

Allergy #3

 =

And this does not come from staring at the sun…. something with the amount of light hitting my eyes. I totally did not know that I had this allergy until my optometrist was like ‘oh your eyes are photosensitive’. Nice to know after the fact that I got these symptoms for like most of my life.

Anyways, so those are my allergies… coconuts being the most serious…. anyone have some funky allergies??

New things = happiness

26 Mar

To me at least and something that totally made my day today was a new Michelle Phan tutorial this time on clubbing makeup.

And something else that is new is the new layout of the Joe fresh online site. Pretty cool stuff going on there.

I love taking their challenges of the day it’s so interesting!

Well that is all for today… I’ve been really busy lately due to finals approaching and such so I’m studying pretty hard. So in the future there probably won’t be as much posts as there was in February but still I’ll try to post something every other day or something.

Shorty

23 Mar

So I went to:

 to get some shorts and these were the shorts that I got.

 
Of course being asian I have to save some sort of money or else why would I buy these?

 I don’t think you can tell how much I saved so here is the general breakdown:

Initial cost: $24.50CDN (yeah for a pair of shorts I’ve paid for cheaper!)

Store discount: reduced to $16.00CDN (still expensive I thought luckily I have asianer ways of getting it cheaper)

Coupon = 30% off

So the grand total that I paid for these shorts is $11.76CDN!! Hooray! In total I saved $13.30CDN!!

I kinda felt sorry for the sales associate I bet she was rolling her eyeballs thinking ‘man this person is so asian’.

So that is it for todays post… as I said before I will do a collective haul of what I have hauled this month at the end of this month… I wonder if I should include the shorts or not… hmmmmm gotta think deep and hard about it.

Vloggity

22 Mar

Giggity. ^_^ Another blog… it’s been a while or seems like its been a while. Other than letting people know about the new Nintendo DSi XL coming out. There isn’t much going on today other than the fact that it snowed outside… can’t show you that because its all melted by now. I should start carrying my camera around once again.

But there is still a photo for today’s post.

Like the new layout?

On the Look out: Mar 28, 2010

21 Mar

So this is a product look out that I’m putting up. I’m planning to get this and it is…..

The NEW Nintendo DSi XL!

This is the UK versions… comes in the described as burgandy, white, and bronze. Currently the bronze and burgandy are available in America.

This is a future planning purchase because I have an original DS Lite which still works great and has a bunch of scratch marks from the stylus (going to replace that screen soon though). I don’t like the color selection so I’m going to wait until they come out with some other colors and then I’ll go and get it.

BTW, coming out Mar 28, 2010 in Canada and retails for $199.99CDN.

Pray

21 Mar

So here I am doing my work and something hits me to say I gotta pray… so I do pray and realized what I just prayed to…

I have laid out a ramen bowl offering to the Tiki man from Hawaii…. this ornament was from my sister when she went to Hawaii last year. He is actually a money tiki and this is what his tag says ” Keep this tiki and it will help you find your fortune and wealth. It is said to have been used to bring great abundance to the bearer. In Ancient Hawai’i, people who had the most land were considered among the wealthiest.”

Oh and the ramen bowl is a mini eraser set I got from my Japanese teacher. Heh, fun things are fun to post.
