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

The rest of my Japan trip in a nutshell…

3 Nov

As you probably have noticed, I’ve been pretty busy lately so no time to update 😦

My Japan posts are horribly overdue, and I’ve realized I will never finish all of them if I do them separately. Thus, here I am finished my homework deciding to blog in what seems like forever.

This will be the final Japan post for this year (about my trip there) and I will try to wrap it up nicely 🙂 Again, this is a picture-based blogpost since it’s about my trip… 🙂 Enjoyy!

^Welcome to Miyajima my friends 🙂 We got here by a boatride ^^

^OMGG! cute right?!?! Okay so there are like freewalking deer on this island…JUST SAYIN’ You can’t say that isn’t the cutest coolest thing ever!! okay lah…my mom sucked at taking this pic -.- I might have a better one but I can’t be botehred to find it…sorry LOL I might after…

^Okay, I know I look like horrible, BUT YOU WOULD TOO IF YOU WERE WALKING AROUND THIS ISLAND IN BURNING HOT WEATHER!! Oh, and this is me, smiling alongside that statue thingy. I believe it’s some kind of guard. There were some cute guys there too, but they ignored my sweaty gross self…so I pshhed at them. NOBODY IGNORES MY EXISTENCE.  #ohthevanity

^This is the famous thing. I’m so sorry I am an ignorant blogger… but like this 門 basically….when the water rises it gets like ….like it stands. OMG LOL I’m so bad at explanations…but like there’s people walking over in the muddyness. I refused ’cause  I didn’t wanna get my shoes dirty LOL…

^…..ok trust me. this horse thing is SCARY. like MADDD creeps!!

^Me, sipping the holy water. I wish all the water of holynesses were cool and refreshing. I went to at least 10 of these things, some of them the water was like…warm and gross 😦 No offense holy spirits in the water that cleansed me several times this trip 🙂 I appreciate the cleansing.

OKAY NOW… OFF TO OSAKA!!! 

^Try and tell me you aren’t jelly!…This hotel room was amazing! Right near the Osaka Universal Studios too! (We didn’t bother to actually go in since we’ve been to the one in LA lol)

^Look at us. Lookin’ like some moviestars. I just realized how grossly long my hair was… ewww….

^Me, picking out a present in the takoyaki section for my boyfriend. Who doesn’t exist by the way… #foreveralone

^Check out the densha… SICK ISN’T IT?? Okay Japanese transportation decoration is like top-class, next level stuff!

^It started to rain while we were walking the streets of some major street in Osaka. I wish some cute Osaka guy would have lent me his umbrella, but of course no such thing happened; I almost give up in my dream of being picked up by some cute Japanese guy randomly.

^Took a pic with the Glico! 🙂 グリコ~ It’s famous in Osaka apparently says my Mommy!

^Beautiful rainbow 🙂 Everybody took pics!  After the rain, there is always something wonderful ❤

^This is me and my mom and sisters at the conpeito factory!  🙂 We were learning how to make 金平糖 and カルメ焼き!

^See, you have to kind of mix in the flavour and colour! 🙂

^that is a カルメ焼き(Karume-Yaki) It’s basically a sugary sweet 🙂

^Those are the nice people who taught us how to make these sweets! They are the sweetest people ever ❤ 🙂 …My thighs are also massive… 😦

OFF TO KYOTO! 

^Our hotel! Very Japanese style! I love it ❤ 🙂 I actually love futons! To be honest, at home (in Canada) I have a bed but I prefer sleeping on my floor instead! haha

^Look at me~ making cups and bowls for my grandparents and parents~ 😀 Please ignore the no-makeup face -.-

^The amazing people who did the pottery stuff with us 🙂

In Kyoto, we also got to experience being Maiko-sans! I will post this under my shared blog with Merigon, considering it is a beauty/make-up related subject ^^ I will post the link for it here if you want. In case you would like to see what a Maiko looks like, here is the end result of my Maiko transformation! :

^I hope the above pic temps you to click the link to the process of how I got there 🙂

^We just so happened to be in Kyoto for the famous Gion Matsuri (Festival)! 🙂 Very nice, and my sister and I spent the time checking out cute Kyoto guys in Yukata. (omg..I hope you all don’t think I’m like some man obsessed freak :()

^That looks so damn delicious. But we were too poor to enter the beautiful tasty looking store… FOL

^This is my 2 sisters and I at the Shrine place 🙂 It was really hot… 😦

^There was the most epic water cleansing place there! It was huge and beautiful! That’s me getting my water 🙂 I felt very clean ❤

^The beautiful garden we visited ❤ 🙂

^This is the creaking house. When it creaks, you know someone’s there (it was a form of security back in the day)

And…that’s about it for my Hiroshima, Miyajima, Osaka and Kyoto Adventure! Hope you enjoyed ^^

I want you to follow me blog!
