Tim Burton

Last weekend, I went to the Tim Burton exhibit at LACMA. For fans or non-fans of Tim Burton, this is something you cannot miss out on. First of all, you gotta buy your tickets in advance or risk it being sold out the day you go. My friend, Kevin, ordered tickets for Sho and I. Tickets were $22 online. Pretty expensive for a museum.. oh well. It's Tim Burton. Another tip would be to go during the evening or weekday. If you do happen to go during the weekend, go early. At least you'll be able to get into the exhibit fast and see some of the artwork before the staff lets in the next batch of people. In the beginning, I felt like we were a pack of sardines. Everyone's all crowding around you... couldn't really take my time to look at each art piece. Just felt rushed. Another disappointing thing is, no pictures allowed. I was sad cause there were a few pictures I wanted to take a pic of, especially the front entrance.

Besides the crowds, I really enjoyed this event. The event displayed a good timeline of Tim Burton's work. I like how his earlier works compared to where he is now really haven't changed. I guess you can say he expanded more on the "creepiness" level. Definitely an event to see. Hurry before time runs out! It ends 10/31 Halloween!

Skull Accent Glasses

Sho bought 2 pairs of glasses from Yesstyle. For halloween, we're going to be wearing rilakkuma & korilakkuma kigurumis. He thought the glasses with the skull accent would add a halloween touch to it. On the website, the glasses came in two types: glossy or matte black. It didn't give us the option to choose which type. It just says black. We chose the cheap shipping option and it came within 2 weeks. We both ended up getting the matte black. The eyeglass case is a bit cheap and hard to open at times. I don't think I'll be using it anyway.

Overall the glasses look great on Sho but on me, they look a bit funny. I don't have a high bridge nose so the glasses don't have much support. They pretty much just sit on my cheeks. HAHA.

Farmer's Market

Decided to have a nice lunch at the Grove Mall. I love their farmers market. So many different kind of foods to choose from. I love the month of October. Pumpkins are in season and excited for Halloween. Yay!

H&M Sneakers

My anatomy class is so cold. It feels like I'm in a freezer. I think the school purposely makes science building cold so people won't fall asleep during boring lecture time. My class is used to the cold already. People come in with big jackets and scarves. I needed some closed toe shoes to keep my feet warm so I went to the H&M near me to see what kind of shoes they had. I spotted these black & white sneakers on sale for $10. SOLD

Karaoke fun

On friday, I went to Max Karaoke in Little Osaka. It was sort of last minute. Not many people showed up but it was a good size group. We sang new and old school songs from the 90s. Lots of fun!

My camera doesn't take the best photos at night even with night mode on. We look drunk in our photos which could be due to the red light in the room.


I feel like I have to blog about something since I finished midterms. LOL.

So last week was midterms. I had the weirdest sleeping/studying schedule.

10am-5pm in school
6-8pm study
8pm-8:30pm break
8:30pm-12:30am sleep
12:35am-4:30am study
4:30am-5am break
5:05am-9am sleep
9:05am wake up & get ready for school

On thursday night, I was dead tired. I had to cancel hanging out with my friend cause I was feeling kinda sick. I just slept.

I bought these cute socks when I went to the shibuya la grand store opening. I didn't have enough money to buy the sexy lingerie but I did manage to buy some socks. I think have a sock obsession. LOL.

Sentimental Circus Haul

I bought these items from the past Rilakkuma Event. The point of the event was to introduce the new characters from Sentimental Circus. The first 100 people who spend $25 or more are entered into a raffle and are guaranteed to win something. The prizes offered were a range from cups, towels, rugs, plush etc. I had my eyes set on those glass cups cause I think they were the most usual items. And I won them. YAY~

Glass cups I won!

Rilakkuma & Sentimental Circus

JapanLA had a rilakkuma event on 9/24 and was introducing a new character to the san-x series, Sentimental Circus. There was a meet n' greet photo shoot with rilakkuma, raffle, and cotton candy. The first 100 guests who spend $25 or more are entered into the raffle and are guaranteed to win a prize.

When I saw "photo shoot with rilakkuma", I just had to buy a rilakkuma kigurumi. On friday after school, I drove to TAMAYA but apparently they were sold out of their adult sizes from the week before so I bought a kids size instead. On the day of the event, I woke up late which pretty much made me late on everything. I finally got my shit together around 2:30pm. The event was in Hollywood. Gah. It usually takes me an hour to get there. The invitation said it would end at 4pm which would only leave me 30mins to buy stuff and take pictures. Oh man, did I speed on the freeeway but it didn't help much cause there was traffic getting onto the 101 fwy... so I did end up taking an hour getting there anyway HAHA.

I took a picture before I left my house.

Yay with Rilakkuma!!!

I meet some local lolitas from OC & LA. They were so nice and I loved their outfits! They looked so adorable I was so jealous. I need money so I can buy some AP & BTSSB. My one Ap dress just isn't enough. I hope to see them at more lolita events soon. ^_^
