Amazing Obentos

Thanks to my good friend Barby, I was able to come across Luckysundae's photostream on Flickr. SHE MAKES THE BEST OBENTO DESIGNS! If I end up as a housewife (though I seriously doubt that) and had all the time in the world, I would create all sorts of obentos like these for my husband and kids. Haha! Since I can't really cook, I'd make up for that with amazing presentation. Woopie!! But seriously, if I had the time, I'd really make obentos like these. I feel so inspired! I WILL BE THE BEST WIFE IN THE WORLD!

These three little piggies are just so adorable! ^_____^



AHIHIHI! Makes me happy looking at them. Heehehee!!

Jimmy Liao

Jimmy Liao now occupies one of the top spots in my favorite artists of all time. Discovered about his works through my good friend Christiane and been a fan ever since. More than the drawings, what I like most about him is the way he conveys emotions and stories in his artworks. If you've known me long or been following my works, you'd notice that my favorite subject to draw is that of couples in love. Jimmy Liao has a set of drawings with that theme and I absolutely adore them.

If you get the chance of seeing his books on stores, make sure to grab a copy of A Chance of Sunshine and Sound of Colors. I don't have my own copy yet, but I plan on going on a scavenger hunt when I visit China or Taiwan or HK maybe. I read that the English translations don't do justice so I want to get the Mandarin versions and though I suck at Mandarin, it will be my life goal to understand what's written on that book. Hehe.

Another thing that really inspired me about Jimmy Liao is this picture of a gallery he had at Hong Kong. I was so awed because the way the gallery was designed is just completely breathtaking. If someday I were to have my own gallery (as if...), I pray that it be as amazing as this one. I love the way it's shaped, how the artworks are placed, everything! I never felt so inspired to have my own gallery. But then again, Jimmy Liao is like an art god (in my world at least) and it's not surprising that he holds a gallery as impressive as this one.

Cake Parade

Hello, world! Meet Cake Parade!

Red Western Digital 160 GB External Hard Drive worth 3200 pesos in Greenhills. I am proud to say that I used my hard earned money for this new toy! Special thank you to all those who bought the necklaces (those with my drawings) that I was selling! Amazing how I was able to raise enough funds is just a week! Praise God! Named her Cake Parade because I like it!

At first it was supposed to be Whale on the Clouds and some other variations like Pancake Whales or Cloudy Whale but it all wouldn't fit. So after so many random words, I ended up with this. Great!

Anyway, yes, obviously I designed it myself again, heehee. I did it for an entire morning --- painstakingly sticking each rhinestone. Oh, the things I do for love. I got the cloud sticker from my friend who gave me an adorable set for my birthday.

I originally planned on getting a pink one, but none of the stores sold 160 GB pink hard drives so I gave up and got this instead, which may I say was actually a BLESSING in disguise because now I LOVE THIS RED one to bits and the pink and white rhinestones look so great on it. Hehee.

I've been arranging the folders and changing all the icons since I got her last September 9, 2008. I renamed all my files as well and went all CRAZY OC over everything. Hahaha. As in it's so much more organized than Luke (my Macbook) now. Luke is envious. Following are screenshots of it.

This is what you see first when you open Cake Parade

Drawings > General part. Heehee, just showing off my cute icons.

Pictures > Barkada Pics part. More of my lovely Loco Roco icons!

My personal favorite collection of the drawings I do. Just note how I name the files. Hehe. Makes me so happy to see them all nicely arranged like that!

Cake Parade includes the files of my life. Haha. It's crazy. I placed all my pictures, drawings and videos here and I have all my other files as well, like songs, documents, programs and so much more. And I love it. I needed this ever since Luke started to go crazy. Hehe.

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

It's been a LONG time since I last posted and that's cuz I've been busy with everything else, and not that it matters, no one cares about this blog anyway except for a few of my loyal fans HAHA just kidding. Anyway.

THIS IS MY FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR AS OF THIS TIME AND MOMENT!!! Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors are so amaaaaazing but this one takes the CAKE (Ahihi yes I feel so smart for using a stupid pun)!

I love the cookie dough tasting graham thingie inside. I don't really know how to blog about food. Well I guess the best description I can say is that, it's so good and so worth the expensive price. Yes, it's expensive (more costy than normal ice creams at least), and I shouldn't get too addicted.

I am in heaven. I am in love. I am now fat.
