"If you can love someone with your whole heart, even one person, then there’s salvation in life. Even if you can’t get together with that person."
— from 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami
Feeling both happy (well maybe calm is a better word choice) and sad at the same time listening to this. Good pick me up song… like a gentle reminder : it’s okay to feel like this now but it won’t always be this way.
cmao thanks ! I googled like crazy bc I couldn’t rmbr if they were jessica simpson or via spiga and I found tt they’re available at macy’s ! I bought them ages ago and have only worn them twice but it looks like I need a replacement pair myself bc… of course as I was walking down the stairs and leaving my apartment complex just about to meet him out front, I nicked my tights with the heel of my shoe T_T
At first I was iffy about them… bc who wants to feature their knees ? But I’ve received lots of compliments (and also creepy advances and stares ugh ugh) every time I’ve worn them out.
07/19/2014 : factory tea bar
My first time in the 626 (⌒▽⌒) bc factory tea bar is in SGV !
The café was really lovely and lively with lots of clientele playing games and chatting in groups etc. We played Jenga …and it taught me tt I really do not know how to time playing 手势令 well enough when deciding who should go first nor do I have a soft enough touch so tt the tower wouldn’t come crumbling down.
The place was really dimly lit — I rmbr thinking : wow it’s so dark after stepping inside and they played pop-punk from the early to mid 2000’s so….what would have otherwise been a really chill and relaxing environment (imagine if stuff like humming urban stereo or lucid fall — except in Chinese not Korean were playing instead ?) was sort of a mismatched atmosphere and music. Talking over all time low / green day was weird and not ideal.
Nonetheless, I had almond milk green tea with pudding and he had the factory milk tea bc he doesn’t like green tea / matcha unless it’s hot !?(･_･;? ……feels like a deal breaker lol It was really good ; I love almond milk tea when you can taste a hint of cherry in it. Does this make sense ? Does anyone taste this too ? I don’t know if you have the option to adjust levels of sweetness here but I found tt although it was more on the sweet side that I’m used it, it was still not overwhelming.
There’s only one size so I was really surprised by how big the cup was. I think we played for 2 hours and I still hadn’t finished. On the drive to and back, he had the discover new music thing on spotify hooked up via Bluetooth to his car and I impressed him (and myself !) by pinpointing tt we were listening to How to Dress Well along the ride. When he dropped me off, he offhandedly said tt I had really good skin and I awkwardly thanked him bc this is an unexpected comment / compliment to receive ? I feel like this is something a girl would say to another girl and then transition to discussing skin care routines … He also said I dressed very “edgy” and he was intimidated about meeting me. I feel like guys tell me this a lot u_u … I wonder what is so ~scary~ about me ??
It’s been really hot lately… I totally want to go back again bc I want to try their smoothies !!! So hard to choose though… they have all my favourite flavours - red bean, taro, sesame….
Maggie Cheung wears a different cheongsam (qipao) dress in each scene of Wong Kar-Wai’s In the Mood For Love. There were 46 in all, though not all made it to the final cut.
Dream wardrobe which I wish could be a reality. A new qipao everyday of the week and no one would blink an eye or make racist comments. Perfectly normal to wear a qipao out on a daily basis just bc I feel like it.
