Kat’s Prom 2012

29 Jun

Wow so me blogging has become way overdue! Things have been really hectic with me being a senior and all with graduation and final assignments/tests and whatnot 😡

Today I wanna just blog about my Prom experience, since Prom (to me, at least) was a pretty big thing. For my boyfriend it wasn’t really a big deal apparently -.- but to me it was pretty important! (I mean, it’s prom! Once in a lifetime prom!)

Okay wow. hmm. Where does this story even start? I was pretty stoked about Prom ever since my grade 11 year when my grade 12 friends went, and they took pictures and whatnot. I mean, what’s not to be excited about? Formal wear, dancing, pictures, princess-feeling… Of course, back in grade 11 I scoffed at the idea of having a date. I thought multiple times, “No… what if we break up and the prom pictures goes to waste?” and didn’t even speculate that I would be going to prom with a date; of course I was wrong. *Cue Mr. Leo*

So, after awhile of Mr. Leo and I dating, I found out he did not particularly have much interest in attending prom. I didn’t want to push him, but I wanted him to go with me. (I mean, we need prom pictures to show our children….) LOL After some small drama (which isn’t really worth mentioning), we decided to attend prom together.

*ehem*

Promposal (n) – the act of asking somebody to prom in an elaborate manner. A combination of the words prom and proposal.

I feel like, many girls dreams are to get the perfect promposal… am I wrong? ahaha. I honestly though, did not think my boyfriend was going to prompose… like, I felt almost as if it was just a given that we would go to prom together… so I didn’t quite expect it (although I can not deny I wanted it…)

Sooo it came as quite the surprise when my boo boo muffin decided to prompose to yours truly. He called me randomly one night as I was helping his cousin with her homework, telling me to look outside. What did I see?… let me show you, rather than try to explain what him and his friends did…

It was so pretty! I was so happy about this! It was so sweet, and he also gave me a bunch of flowers… which him and his friends apparently obtained in an *cough* interesting manner XD hmm… too bad I didn’t take a nice picture of them… they’re still on my desk but they’re dry flowered.

Any-who, so time passed and finally, prom tickets were being sold. 85$ for “early bird” tickets, and after that the tickets were 90$. (I know, I thought they were mad expensive too!…) Mr. Leo and I contemplated just using the prom money to have our own formal night, but in the end we decided (well, I…) decided to stick with going to Prom… I mean we could always go to formal nights any other time, but Prom? Prom is only once! And… I need those prom pics ahaha. So we decided to attend prom. We rented a limo with like, 18 others.

Our prom was held at Arcadian Court, in downtown Toronto. Er… the theme? Midnight something? I don’t quite remember #guilty

Enough with the talk. PICTURES!

^Me and my very handsome boyfriend, Mr. Muffin.

^Take 2

^Inside, the tables we sat at from a floor higher.

^A group shot we took for prom pics!

^ Boutonniere and Corsage 🙂 Mr. Muffin got them so pretty! They are not dry flowers sitting on his desk at his house… unless he threw them out :S He better not have!

^A dolly-like picture of me ! Taken courtesy of Mr. Leo.

^A very characteristic photo of my Lion baby.

^Look at all those people! And guys, this is not even half of the attendees…

^What a romantic candle right? 😛

^Our table for the night. We had a hard time determining which pieces of cutlery belonged to who… I need to brush up on my table manner knowledge.

Now let us move onto the meal of the night shall we?

^The meal listing for that night

^The bread with butter. Everyone thought the bread was too chewy/hard, but I kind of liked it, if it weren’t for my annoyingly pained jaw…

^Meal #1, the salad piece. I personally liked it, especially the crispy things. Quite a delightful salad, and I liked devouring it like the hungry monster I was.

^Dish #2! Chicken thing… okay. The chicken bit was delicious, the meat was tender and nice, but I didn’t really like the items beneath it. Mashed potato.. gravy and whatnot? It was a bit too Swiss chalet for my liking. The herbs on the chicken  were phenomenal though!

^Me with the food! #bloggerthings

^The dessert piece, which I was extremely disappointed about. I mean it was just a cupcake! Something I could probably find in my super market!!….

^Nonetheless, I decided to promptly camwhore with the top cherry piece of the sorry excuse for a prom dessert.

^The delightful drink we were able to obtain at the drink bar 🙂

^KATCEPTION!!

^Cheers!

^Just a bit of blog PDA no biggie right? ;P

^When the dance music came on and people started hitting the dance floor, we decided to sit for a bit and camwhore in the lighting. Made us blurry! Probably because of the dark 😡

^Me, taking a reflection picture from the top of the limo 😡 I was so tired!!

^The only close-up you’re going to get of  my eyes 😛

Last picture for this post! It’s actually a picture my friend took for me of my Muffin and I slow-dancing. The song was “I don’t wanna miss a thing” by Aerosmith! I love this song!! Anywho, this next picture is one of my favourite!

Well, the original was just the picture, but I edited it a bit 😛 Just some filters and lighting adjustments, that’s about it ^^

After prom is a whole different story for another time 😉 hehe. You can probably guess what went down though.

Thanks for reading! I appreciate every single view and comment, so please leave me comments, follow/sub my blog! I reply each and every comment I receive! ;O

With Green Behind Us [Photoshoot] [Picture Heavy!]

5 Mar

Okay! So haven’t blogged in awhile, but today I’m just going to be quickly sharing with you some photos taken by my dear friend Karmen 🙂 She took the photos for her school photography class assignment, where she essentially had to take “celebrity-like” photos of somebody! I was honoured to be her model for the session, and it was mad fun working with her and my muffin. I haven’t done this in awhile, and was quite rusty on posing and whatnot, but she put up with my indecisiveness really nicely, and I think we both had a good time ^^

All photo credits go to my friend 🙂 I can’t take photos for shit LOL

Ok! Enough talking right? Time to share the pics ❤ 😀 Uhmm if anything scroll down, because I think the best shots are near the end 😛

^Oh…hi there. So I guess you’re gonna be viewing the pics right?

^I thought this was quite cute 😀 Not the most flattering of me, but it was funny right? haha

^ My *serious* face looks weird. teehee.

^ Sad Kat is sad 😦 come cheer her up!

^And with a flip of my magic hair….

^I’ve turned into a serious…. and ew why my nose so weird face??? fuck man. Life sucks LOL

^Nevermind okay! Look at my hair instead! LOL it’s quite healthy right?? I promote head and shoulders! that stuff is like godessness for your hair!! 😀

^Halfway through I peered over at Mr. Leo doing nothing, so I walked over and posed with him… this lead to a number of things…

^Okay I look terrible in this one, but my muffin looks damn good so I post it. I’m such an amazing girlfriend right?? #hahaimjoking

^Otay, this one my face looked horrendous, but my body and Mr. Leo looked damn good, so I decided to just crop out my face!

^….Hahaha. I has the power!!!

^Hey Mr. Leo, can I sit in your lap??

^I was allowed to, but I dislike my face in this one -.- Just, Mr. Leo looks good right? So post.

^Changed clothing! I like this outfit very much ❤ 😀 I love ponchos!!

^Oh the imaginary snow is falling!

^Okay! “Do same pose but more serious face!!”

^ What a solemn expression. I love it. arrrrr.

^I’m having a sideconversation okay! not my fault! 😀

^ Okay not so bad shot 🙂 I like 😀

I don’t know guys! My face is so unphotogenic unless I’m self-taking the shots -.- #sadtimes #okayguy.jpg

^this one’s one of my favourites! 😀 it’s…not bad right? 😀

^I know repetitive shot but…. I can’t decide between these four -.- #noobblogger

^Okay. depending if you like me or not, this can be seen as extremely ugly/sleepy/whatthefuckisherface….or casually sexy. You decide LOL

^If anybody ever wondered what I look like when I sleep, I think I look something like this. I’m not sure though, ask my parents, sisters or Mr. Leo for confirmation.

^Lastly, the photo my friend used for her final final hand-in of her assignment (I’m assuming). Photo-edited by her, and I love! I hope she aces this assignment!!

 

Thanks again Karmen ❤ 🙂 Very enjoyed ^^

Thanks for reading my blog guys! ❤ 🙂 Comment and follow please! Every comment is appreciated max! ❤

Frump-Kute le Rina

28 Jan

Soooooooooo….I’ve recently become quite into オバカワ…(Oba-kawa) fashion. I guess you could say it’s a trend? Granny-cute, frump-cute whatever 🙂 I think it’s adooooorable!

So, one of my friends sold/gave me her oxford style shoes (I was VERY mad excite!!) and I tried them out today!! (With the clothes and thigh high socks like I want to wear them) I was sooo happy! I’ve been looking for oxford-style shoes with heels for awhile now, and it’s interesting because I see them everywhere in flat styles, but not heeled. When I finally got my hands on a pair, I nearly collapsed in happiness juice.

^Please ignore my cankles… T_T I’ve finally started working out again, so they should be gone in awhile…. teehee.

I was really contemplating what outfits would go well with these shoes. I know scholar-style and frump-kute style would probably look great with such cute shoes… so I tried putting together what I had in my closet and seeing what fit! 🙂 I actually came across a lotta outfits, but only decided to take a pic of one.

 

WARNING: Please excuse the very amateurishness of my photos. I took them myself with self-timer and…it was my first time LOL. Next time I’m getting Mr. Leo to help me take them!! I swear he will become an expert photographer LOOL  

^….ignore face please and thighs LOOL. Okay, I know you prob think this is a very plain outfit 😛 But I thought it was cute. Why? Let me list the factors:

1) The top is a cute oversized knit-style sweater that my grandfather in Japan bought me ❤ 🙂

2) I’m wearing thigh high socks. What’s not cute about that please?

3) The shoes are cute okay.

4) Bare legs even though it’s winter?? Plus some cute points and hard-working points there 🙂 (yeah I know I don’t actually show my bare legs in the winter 😦 Canadian winters are TOOOO cold! Can’t be that vain)

And so, the kamhoing began! mrow.

^Am I mysterious or what??

^Actually I’m a happy happy little chicka.

^Actually, I have back problems 🙂 teehee

^Well lookie here, we got ourselves a bipolar. I put my hands up in the air sometimesssss.

no?

 

^…..I’m obviously a spy.

^Actually nope. I’m just a happy Kat :3 Look at that smile on my face guys LOOOL What am I so happy about you ask? I don’t actually know.

Sooo here’s some face shots, because I love kamhoing with my itouch LOL It’s a renowned hobby of mine :3

^I look psyched out. Kind of. Or….no I just have this creepy dolly look on my face I think MROW

^Oh well Rina, that’s a little better! Seems a bit more chipper :3

^well hi there, Sir chinks-a-lot. Tell me, what time do those eyes of yours open? Oh…never? #sadtimes

 

Let’s add some random accessories to the outfit! Start of with fake glasses!! I don’t care if you think it’s lame that they don’t have lenses. Lol please don’t be jealous ’cause you can’t pull them off like I can 😛 mrow.

^Do I look like a shy scholar-girl? 🙂

^I’m a little bit of a trouble maker~ 🙂 mrow

^Here’s a normal smile 🙂 I find that red lipstick and these glasses go quite well together. What do you think? ^^

 

Next lets try a hat… a white hat! 🙂

^I don’t really like this hat actually 😦 It’s too short and slips off my head and makes my head static-y! Not so nice, especially since I suffer from enough static from the knitted sweater….

And lastly… LETS ADD A SCARF! 😀

^….is it just me or do I look like I have a batwing LOOOL FML! Thighs… Y U NO LOOK SKINNIER FROM THE SIDE ??? 😦

That’s it for today guys! It’s actually exam week and I took the time to do this…’cause I was bored LOL.

Gonna study with the boo tomo and Sunday though! So he better be prepared! haha 🙂

^My failed attempt at winking ;)…. #closeenoughguy.jpg

Please comment and follow my blog! 🙂 Every view and comment means a lot to me and I reply all my comments! ^_^ Thanks for visiting my blog! See you next time ❤

Some online window shopping! Maid costumes ahead~

18 Nov

So…if you aren’t interested in pretty clothes or me, feel free to close the tab because you will be extremely bored with this post LOL.

So, basically, I’ve decided that instead of being sensible and finishing some homework this Friday night, I would do some online window shopping. One day my dears, I will have enough money to afford all these wonderful luxuries (all before I hit 25 of course) and be very happy. Until then, I will oogle at these beautiful pieces of glory through the screen of my laptop. :’)

I’ve included all the links for those who wish to purchase these things for themselves :). Hey, just ’cause I can’t get them doesn’t mean you shouldn’t! #imsonice LOOL

#1 Liz Lisa’s Floral Poncho!

http://lizlisa.jp/shop/liz-lisa/%E8%8A%B1%E6%9F%84%E3%83%9D%E3%83%B3%E3%83%81%E3%83%A7/item/view/shop_product_id/894

Obviously that isn’t me -.- but yeah I took it off their site 🙂 IS THIS NOT THE CUTEST PONCHO EVER?? This on the Liz Lisa site is 12,390 Yen (about 130 bucks Canadian dollar). I’m sorry if I sound cheap, but I can not afford that :(. And so, being me, I tried to look online for a rep of this. I actually found one very similar on http://www.minimaos.com/ which looked like this:

Quite similar right? This one was at about $50 USD, and I was actually about to purchase it. Then I realized, this is an asian site, and so the shipping rates must be super high for Canada 😦 I then checked; Canada isn’t even on the list (you have to request it) and shipping to the US is like $28USD…. So I therefore conclude, if I was to get a rep for like…$80(50+shipping) I might as well get the real thing. Which of course I can’t. And so I’ve decided I’ll just move on.

#2

Leopard Print Tube Dress. Mmmm.

http://www.wholesale7.net/goods-2071-China+Cheap+Clothes+Sexy+Slim-fit+Tube+Dress.html

Okay, so I  actually saw this like…2 years ago I think on this site, and always wanted it but never felt I could pull this off :x. Now I want ittttt! It’s like $5 USD, but with shipping its a bit more. (They inflate their shipping A LOT to compensate for their low prices).  I’m thinking of maybe getting it…but then again, when would I ever wear it? When I go bar hopping in Tokyo next summer? LOL

#3

Knitted Cream Colored Poncho!

http://www.wholesale7.net/goods-14598-Winter+Style+Lady+Cap+Petals+Sleeve+Bats+Sweater.html

Okay, so after my obsession with the floral poncho, I decided to creep wholesale7 for a poncho in general. I didn’t get any “poncho” results, but did find this, very cute top! I love it in the cream color but apparently it comes in pink and black as well. This looks perfectly warm for the cold winters, so I’m actually considering buying this. I mean, I can actually afford this one too LOL. It’s about $9USD + shipping (which would probably be about $10 extra). The only thing is, I really have no idea how the quality is… orz

#4

Pretty Dresses o:

http://www.wholesale7.net/goods-14404-Graceful+Big+Bowknot+Sweet+Princess+Tube+Dress.html

Okay. Again, I probably won’t get either because of the “quality” issue, but then again I might, just to camwhore with it. I fell in love with these dresses on the site, and just couldn’t decide: pink or black? Pink might look more innocent and kawaii, whereas black might give me that air of mystique and sexyness I lack. Hmmmm…. *ponders*. Both are like $9 USD (+ shipping, about an extra $10?). Should I get one? Which one? mroww.

Okay. That’s about it for now. Not about to get greedy. I actually only want the ponchos right now. And the dress. Okay whatever, I’ll get those and continue saving money 🙂 I wanna shop till I drop when I’m in Japan next summer! Also, maybe if we go to HK or Malaysia, I can shop there tooooo! 😀 Very excited (^_^)’

To end off, I would just like to show you guys my maid costume mrow :3

That was for Halloween my dearies. I don’t wear this on a regular basis unless someday I have a maid fetish husband. LOL

Thanks for reading! 🙂 I love you guysss!

Now I want you to comment and follow me 😀 I seriously love each and every comment I get ^^

Thanks again for reading!

we also took a purikura with him…but I’ll share all my purikura on another post…seeing as I have no scanner orz.

Took some mad random pics with sister 🙂 She’s a damn boss LOL:

^There is a complete and rational explanation as to why we were making this face on the subway wtf. So basically my grandma was like, she saw on some show that if you make this face 30 times a day u get a smaller face wtf XD

Heres a pic my youngest sister took of me, sister, mom and gramma:

Airplane trip to Tokyo!

2 Jul

Hi there 🙂 So as promised I will be blogging about my stay in Japan ^^ Perhaps not daily, but as much as possible ^^ Albeit they will be short posts (most probably). The night before I was up till about 4am, packing and helping everyone else with their last minute needs (my sister needed me to make her a shushu, clear her sd card, my other sister and mom needed me to help pack etc). The day we left, we left the house at 11am and our flight was at 2pm. A nice time, if you ask me. I hate waking up at like….4am just to go on a flight wtf. Also, thank god our flight was a direct flight. We used Air Canada.

Not much interesting things happened on the flight…I watched like 5 movies XD. I saw “Rango”, “Just go with it”, “How to Train your pet Dragon” and some ant movie. Ok, there might have been another one…but I can’t remember it fml my memory fails me wtf. 😦

Here are some pretty shots I took whilest on the airplan 🙂 Some very pretty shots. I absolutely love looking out the window on an airplane (which is one reason why I always sit in the window seat. Another reason is that the window seat offers a good sleeping/leaning place). The view is absolutely spectacular, the clouds look so fluffy and majestic. And the cities just look like little toys. Just…amazing:

And here is a camwhore pic of me at my ugliest hour wtf. Why am I even sharing this with you? I don’t even know. Just shoot me now wtf. (Everyone is ugly after a 13 hour flight ok XD).

Here are some more pictures I took from window, our landing if you will:

Then we landed (finally). 13 hours is damn long! My legs are like cramped by the end of it. I refuse getting up to do those redonculous airplane exersizes because they are stupid and everyone glares at you for doing them wtf. Anyway, the moment we stepped off the airplane we felt like…a waft of hot humidity. Yes folks Japan is like this every damn summer. Hot, and absolutely HUMID. Winter is the time to come actually, its just that summer we can stay much longer so thats why we always come in the summer.

Here is a sign that takes us upstairs to the customs:

Btw. I was so pissed! My mom ditched us for customs << so we had to fill out the forms and everything ourselves and combat those customs people wtf. Ok, not so bad actually but it was super mendokusai. orz

We got our luggage fairly fast and used the Airport Limousine to get to Shinagawa Prince Hotel, and took a taxi to my grandmother’s house. BTW, I actually love the Airport Limousine. Every year when we come we always use it. Thats probably why but the Airport Limousine is almost like a part of me wtf. I get super nostalgic when I get on it. I super recommend this method of getting to other places from the airport. Here it is:

When I got to my grandmothers house, we all had like a super reunion! It was super amazing. I missed my grandma like CRAZY so you can imagine how much hugging went on lol. For the record, I call my grandma

ばあば(Baaba) and my grandfather じいじ・(Jiiji) and my uncle おじちゃん(ojichan). Just a little mamechishiki lol.

Also, when I got there, I was super excited cause the stuff I ordered online was there! I got myself a maid costume (which I will probably blog/rave about when I get home, so like a month later will post pics and such), magazines (Popteen, Egg, Cutie and Seventeen) and 2 bags/purses. I am in love with the purses! So damn cute guys you wouldnt even believe! I was super impressed with one of them and the other I like normally 🙂 I will share them with you in this blog post in detail (on my meriko blog, so if you’re interested its like a mini review) http://merigonxnyanko.blogspot.com/2011/07/vita-felice-bags.html

After I took a bath, I helped my grandma take out the garbage and then we went to the roof. I will take pics of the roof some other time to show you guys, but trust, the roof is like the most amazing place ever wtf. Can see everything!

Thats about all for today. Pretty introductory, sorry it was so long XD.
