Happy Lunar New Years!

3 Feb

Hello everyone! So today is Lunar New Years  and since I celebrate it I thought I’d share with you some snacks that are quite fun and made all together for New Years. The company name is Wan Wan (yeah yeah laugh all you want)  and they make really tasty snacks! I was surprised at how much was in this bag.

This year in Vietnam it is Year of the Cat (not sure why…) and in China it is Year of the Rabbit. Happy Lunar New Year!

Looking for Asian Agents

24 Nov

Hello everyone! The NigaHiga movie just came out. Check it out if you got time and love action, comedy, drama, and spy-action!

Officially Back!!

8 Aug

Hi everyone! I am back from Vancouver!!! Asian city central!!!

Excuse the hair and tired looking face… car trips are always the longest. But I am back and will be posting up a haul and for the beauty products that I got I will NOT be doing a review on them because they are not readily available to the general public. (which sucks because I mean me living in Alberta doesn’t help)

I think hanging out in Vancouver was great even though it was a short time I feel like I got really asian… like really really asian. I am now not embaressed to sing aloud to asian pop songs, put up asian gang signs, talk with an asian accent without even realizing it… that’s a lot of asian stuff.

Anyways, haul picture will be posted up tomorrow.

Concept of Beauty 2 – Face

5 May

This is the second portion of the Concept of Beauty. For the first post please go to:

https://canadianbeautysheep.wordpress.com/2010/02/17/concept-of-beauty-body-image/

Comparisons of facial structures this time and what is ideal in both Asia and the West. Here is where lots of ideals are the same or so I find.

The Asian ideal face is to look basically Western.

A high nose bridge, round small face, big eyes, beautiful glowing skin and long dark hair is considered ideal in Asia… like this person:

I do not know what the ideal Western beauty is as there is so much variation in modern times but I can tell you what the ideal was back in the day.

Cherub cheeks, porcelain skin, petite shapes on the face. Nowadays… so much variation but I guess that it’s just the culture that we live in here in America. ^_^

I find that even though it is ideal to attempt to look Western most asian people do not look that the girl pictured above.

For example, me ^_^

I have a strong jawline, face structure is not a round shape, my eyes are small, and my nose is a button nose (which is very cute in my sense) but these features are not ideal in an asian person. If I had a defined jawline, smaller and defined nose, bigger eyeballs and a round face I would be pretty. But I’m not and I still like myself for who I am.

I find that if everyone had the same face the world would be dull and boring. Wise words of the day is ‘Spread love not hate’ and ‘Love yourself for who you are’.

Forgetfulness

9 Mar

Yeah… I’m sorry I didn’t post my exciting news yesterday…. so much work to go through before the big event!

So this great event that is happening this weekend is Soba Bowl IV Anime Festival!!!

I’ve never posted anything that I was an anime fan but I’m out of the closet now… I’m a HUGE anime fan! I hope I don’t lose any readers just because I’m an anime fan….

More information on Soba Bowl is that it’s in the fourth year of putting on this event. Their website is currently down so I can only link the Facebook group page.

I used to be an executive member when I went to high school but not anymore… still I’m an advisor which is kinda cool. ^_^

Anyways, I am in artist alley/avenue this year so I get to sell some stuff that I made. These are the things that I have been working on and am going to sell. ^_^

I don’t know if you can tell but it’s a bunch of pencil cases. There are two types that I have with a variety of colors. ^_^ So regular solid color and an asian brocade… man those were expensive to get. But I hope to sell a bunch of them to cover the base costs. ^_^ At least they were fun to make. I also have two Domo-kun pencil cases but I don’t have his face done yet so I can’t take a photo of him… sadly I hope to get him all done. Well off to prepare more for the festival now. So sad that I don’t have that much time left to finish anything. Go fast as possible time!! So glad to get this news off my chest. ^_^

Planning + Studying + Working on a video

7 Mar

Oh… a post so late at night… I should be studying for my Japanese midterm tomorrow but I got so off-track!

Anyways… I finally got an Youtube idea going on through my head and since your first video that you put up on Youtube is very important I decided to start putting together a foundation video. Now there are lots of how to put on your foundation on Youtube already so I really shouldn’t be doing that sort of thing but thing is those people only show one way of many. So I decided to put together a makeup basic foundation routine based on what sort of sources an average person has and which technique is fast or requires some sort  of skills. Not going to go much in depth but I’m going to try to make it as professional as possible so it’s going to take some time…. if I calculate right then it should take about a month to put up that video. Yeah… a month and I’m not going to start filming just yet mainly because I just don’t have time… I now have respects for those people on Youtube who put up a video like everyday… crazy!!

Anyways… the photo of the day…

 
The question of the day is…  Am I winking or am I blinking?
