2136243787 Days of Nail Art.

Was organizing my photos and found out a dozen of nail art photos which I decided to blog about just to keep a record of the collection. X) Some of the photos are from 1254386482 years ago though. =x 

 First nail art I did on false nails. I have no idea how to wear them though. It seems painful to put on with glue. =3= So yeah, I guess I will just do them for fun. lol 

Some acrylic nails tools which I got to try out. Also months ago, before I went for internship and abandoned them.. :(

I did not get the proper nail tool to hold the fake nail so I referred to THIS tutorial on how to paint on false nails. It's so easy! All you need is cellophane tape!

 In case you were wondering what's the item packaged in clear zip pockets with numbers,
 the false nails come in all different sizes ranging 1 to 10. These are my sizes :D

The false nail cutter also comes with clear description, make things easy for a newbie like me! :D

There were too many photos, so I combined them so I don't have to scroll so much. =x Some of them are taken with mobile phone which explains why they're blur, and most of them (or maybe all) were done during my internship in Korea though =3= I don't know why but staying there always gives me the mood to dress up nicely. XD 
 Guess you can tell I'm kind of obsess with pink, nude and mint lol 

 Nope, my skin is not flaky, lol those are the traces of top coat that I applied and lazy to remove =x

These are some nail art that I did for two of my japanese friends in korea. and it was actually few days before I'm leaving kr so I was in fact kind of emotional.. We held a mini party in someone's room to chit-chat, gossip, chew on snacks, made fruit cocktail, and watch some japanese movie. lol They were super nice! >3< I was keep like 'sure or not let me draw lol' and was being super cautious all the time lol but they were like 'just draw whatever you like! treat our nails as a platform to practice etc..' LOL T____T I miss you guys already!

Kracie Popin Cookin Edible Clay! ねりきゃんランド

Guess what's this? :D Yesh, it's the famous Popin Cookin DIY candy making kit! \(^u^)/
Been wanted to try it ever since Vin showed me a video review by RRCherrypie! lol and I so happened to spot it selling at 100yen shop one day. But of course it costs me more than just 100 yen.. =3= 
It's RM11.90 per box.

There's a detailed instruction at the back of the box showing how you should mix the clay candy to get different colors. I think it's pretty clear to understand even if you can't read japanese. 

 This is the packet you get after opening the box! Yup, more cute looking references! :P Even comes in step-by-step guidance!

 These are the colourful gummies given! They smell like glucose, yummy! ^^ There are 3 core colors, blue, red and yellow. Just squeeze and mix two or more colors together to produce other colors. If you need darker or lighter colors, just add in some black or white. It also comes with a small packet of colorful sprinkles for deco purpose, and a wooden stick to make flat stuffs.

 If you're gonna eat them afterwards, remember to wash your hands! Don't be so gross.. =3=
Also, you'll be needing a CLEAN tray or plate to do your work, it's gonna get a bit messy. -.-

 Ok, enough introduction. Time to show my 30-minutes 'hard work'. lol I did it together with my younger sis who loves diy stuffs too. =3=
 Strawberry cake!

 Breakie set with a sunny side up egg, sausage, peas and cup of coffee! XD

Nothing is complete without a Rilakkuma! XD

And of course, a bunny! hahaha

Strawberry short cake..

We got a bit lazy after 30 mins and nomed all the remaining candies LOL
I would say that if you have time in hand, and love candies, you should definitely give it a try. Considering that it's super fun to make and taste quite yummy too. \(^v^)/

Pudding! Pudding!

Temporary back again! lol Been storing all these photos for awhile, and finally get the mood back to start blogging again.. -..- The 'many posts coming' turns out to be me busying preparing for my internship in Korea.. D: Thought I'd have more time here, but my weekdays are always super hectic with many due dates to meet, while the weekends are always too happening! lol! 

Ok, back to topic. So I've bought these Japanese Instant Desserts from Tokyo Street @ Pavilion thought it'll fun for me to 'cook' for my family once in a while.. XD #cheatone

 These are what I've got! Caramel Custard Pudding and Almond Tofu Pudding instant packs! 

These are the mixture packs inside.

In case you can't read Japanese, you can get the recipe online. :)
For caramel custard pudding, these are the ingredients that you have to prepare:
1. 300cc Fresh Milk 
2. 18gm of Egg Yolk

Then, divide the caramel sauce (in the packet) into cups/molds. For my size of bowls, it's only enough to make 2 servings. : (

After that, combine the pudding mix, milk and egg yolk in a pot and cook with medium flame until it boil. Remember to keep stirring so it won't burnt =3=
 Stir for around 1 minute then it shall be ready to be poured into the molds, with caramel sauce inside. 
Chill it in fridge for around 1 hour and it should be ready to serve! :D Super easy eh? 
Tadaa! It surely doesn't look as tempting as the one shown on the packaging =3= but it's quite yummy! 
Though I don't think my molds are suitable to make puddings as it turns out quite cacat-looking XD But it's the smallest and most suitable one I could find in my house =..= Should've just make a giga-pudding instead LOL

For almond tofu pudding, the ingredients are similar except that you don't need the egg yolks.
1. 250cc Fresh Milk (Divide into 2 portions: 150cc and 100cc respetively
2. 100cc Water

Then, follow the steps below:
1. Mix 100cc of water, 150cc fresh milk and powder mix ina pot and mix well.
2. Cook with medium flame until boiled and ad the remaining 100cc of water. 
3. Pour mixture into molds and chill in fridge for an 1 hour.

Almond puddings are not as good, the texture was smooth but a bit too watery. Plus, I'm not really a fan of almond lol my mum likes it though XD

Anyway, I think next time I shall try making the caramel custard pudding without the help of instant mix! XD

Rilakkuma Papercraft and Hauls.

Harrow! XD I'm currently on my exam week but I'm giving myself a self-declared holiday lol since there is only one more paper left next week.   Good news is that, there will be loads of posts coming up after that cause I am finally free to edit the photos that have been sitting in my computer for idk how long =3= 

So, I made these papercrafts with my siblings during cny. They are suppose to be cny-related but my one-piece-fan brothers end up making these weird-shaped one piece characters..  =.=
I always think that Kiiroitori somehow resembles my sister so much in terms of their hard-working nature and serious personality lol =.= 
Anyways, you can get the rilakkuma papercraft templates HERE.
And the best part? They are all free!  I love free stuffs. HAHA

It does seem easy but super time-consuming to make. =.= I printed the template on a regular A4 sized paper, but I think it'll look much better on a bigger-sized paper, especially for small char like Kiiroitori. lol My sis said that she almost puked blood.. XD

Tadaa! My dragon rilakkuma! with angpao and mandarin orange?  Should have make the korilakuma instead, it looks cuter with full-body dragon suit. T_T

 My Rilakkuma haul! Got all of them online. :D Cord holder, stapler, passport cover, contact-lens case and some stick-on notes. I realize I prefer buying usable Rilakkuma stuffs than the plushies. =.=" Eventhough I love them so much I still think it's quite a waste to spend money on things I can't use. T_T 

Puke rainbows..  

 New rilakkuma mouse-pad! I wanted the one with Rilak's big face to match my desktop's wallpaper, but it was out of stock. D: So I bought this instead. (._.)

And these are the items that I'm currently hunting! (*w*) I did found some of them online already but they are either too expensive or out of stock.. D: For some that I don't need so urgently, I convinced myself to try my luck in Korea/Japan to get the cheaper ones hahaha. =x #cheapskate

  Rilakkuma thermo bottle. Saw a similar one the other day but it's too small and impractical. =\

Need this foldable blankie! Portability+Cuteness! It'll be perfect for travelling.  (*w*)

Rilakkuma pencil case/makeup pouch. 

Rilakkuma and Korilakuma Cup and Saucer set! Been looking for this for the longest time.. =.=

Rilakkuma foldable Headset!. Both rilak and kori ones are cute I can't decide.. D: *dilemma*

Black Rilakkuma umbrella! I remember last time Watsons had this promotion selling Rilakkuma merchandises, all at super low prices. It was a super big hit can, I didn't even gt the PINK cup that I wanted cause it was sold out. T_T Anyway, I think some Watsons chains still have these Rilakkuma umbrellas but the design is too flowery to my liking. =\
