Is it me, or has fashion gone crazy PT. 2

I recently posted, "Ripped leggings... I don't understand why girls want to look like a prostitute." as a Facebook status on my page. Because honestly, this is a mind boggling phenomenon for me.

My friend agreed that fashion is damn out of its mind. And she proceeded to show me this link.

Really now! $1000 sweatpants!? And scroll down further and look at the images of the purses/satchels that are modeled after plastic bags! WTF?!?!?!

I am truly disappointed in you Louis Vuitton... I always thought Louis Vuitton was a sort of classy designer label, but this garbage bag as fashion is anything BUT classy and is clearly NOT fashion.

Are the homeless now going to be ridiculed for their NON designer sweatpants? Or non designer tattered shirt? WTF? $1625 for a tattered t-shirt that looks like you just threw a bunch of moths in a box with the shirt!

So, if all you ladies and gents want to look classy! Wear sweatpants, ripped leggings, stripper heels and garbage bags as purses to the finest restaurants and hotels!

Me blog for you!

I've been up to nonsense lately really. And I'm sorry for neglecting you blog and my wonderful readers. :P My life has been so extremely boring at the moment.

Well, last last week... was my boyfriend and I's 10 month anniversary. We made a deal to stop getting monthly gifts for each other but whatevs. His favorite dessert is cheesecake so I took some time out to make it for him. Luckily for me I found a box of Keeblers Graham cracker crust all mashed up and ready for the New York style cheesecake I was going to make.

Who knew cheesecake was crazy fat! I had to buy 4 packs of 8 oz. cream cheese. Do you know how much an 8 oz. of cream cheese is? It's like a brick. In addition to the 4 BLOCKS of cream cheese we needed ONE WHOLE STICK of butter for the graham cracker crust. Sadly, I don't think we put enough butter and therefore the crust was still a bit crumbly.

While the cheesecake is extremely high in fat it takes a damn long time for it to cook and cool and stick in the fridge then eat.

The final outcome... Looks good. :P

I gave two slice of cheesecake to honey the next day right before the Cherry Blossom festival. I hope he didn't think it was nasty, because I thought it was wonderful. But I'm not a cheesecake expert like he is so whatevs.

We went to the Cherry Blossom festival in the perfect weather. It was nice a hot! We waited in line super long for that fucking squid ball shit. I don't even know what's so good about it! It tastes disgusting... People were making steak or something too so there was smoke all over the place. I looked around the little shopping booths and didn't find much that I wanted to buy. Mostly everything was jacked up and whatevs.

I found those little bracelets that you can put jeweled letters on so I bought one! It was $1 each for the letter/symbol and $2 for the actual bracelet. In total mine was $7. It says ♥BEBE. The lady didn't have pink. D:< style="text-align: center;">
Went to Valley Fair Mall on Saturday as well. My uncle claims it's the largest mall in the bay area. It didn't seem very big to me and I always thought that Great Mall was way bigger. Supposedly the rent for each store costs about $20,000 a month because of all the traffic that mall gets. There is also an outside line of malls and stores, very cute. I called it the "classier version of Fisherman's Wharf". There are high end and designer stores right outside as well as restaurants so you can enjoy the beautiful weather. I want to go back with babes and enjoy some time there.

I think South Bay is really beautiful, especially the nice neighborhoods. It's all very calm and serene.

My uncle, baby cousin and I ate at the Cheesecake factory at Valley Fair Mall. Very nice and lots of friendly staff. I think my head would blow up if I were that nice to customers.

Spaghetti Carbonara, yums!

Onion rings.

Grilled cheese sandwich.

We walked around the mall some more and bought clothes for the little brat. My uncle had to use the restroom and lo and behold! There is a LOUNGE for the whole family! Has a tv, microwave, seats, and Idk, these little sofas and foot rest and can be concealable with a curtain.

Brat watching tv.


Concealable things I'm talking about

Wish I had a bathroom like this...

Microwave and bathroom

Wayyy too awesome. I especially liked the sink parts... It seemed so behind the stage of a Vegas show. Maybe that'll be my theme when I get a house one day.

We ate Korean BBQ for dinner. It was interesting because this wasn't a restaurant it was just a food court with no mall. Isn't that weird!? Just mostly the same Korean foods lined up next to each other to compete...

I got the bimbimbab and my uncle got the spicy noodles.

Also ended up at this market called "Hankook" I bought some Pocky and this peach drink. So good! There's like little "boutiques/shops" in the market too. One girl was selling Louis Vuitton bags for original price I think. I'm not sure if they're fake or not but they were decent looking.

Wish I had bought more of these.

Latest indulgence... POCKY and playing Wii! I actually don't have school today but I know I should be doing some kind of photography homework. I forget what the assignment was. I'm super excited for the self portrait photo and the final. I want to do something outrageous and crazy for the self portrait photo. And I've decided to do an origami piece for the final. :)

Haven't been blogging lately and latest indulgences

So hopefully this will intrigue everyone. :)

I will just talk about the latest updates once again...

Last Saturday was my friend May Ling's junior prom and she had asked me months ahead to do her hair and makeup. Damn excited I was! So I ended up doing her hair and makeup and I think it looked fabulous! She didn't want it too qua zuerng, so I made it subtle. It turned out wonderfully in my opinion she told me she got lots of compliments that night too, except for one girl. I curled her hair, twisted them and pinned them back with a jeweled clip.

Now that I think about it I should have taken pictures. She doesn't usually wear make up so she looked uber cute. :P I couldn't really cover her acne blemishes though.

Went to school on Monday, thankfully I had my laptop and thank God I decided to look in inbox. My photography class got cancelled so I decided to go shopping for a bit. I checked out Claire's and I knew the layered pearl necklace was in so I wanted to check it out. Guess how much the layered necklace was at Claire's? Come on just guess......

$18.95... are you freaking kidding me. I put that necklace down faster than I picked it up.

Next stop, I went to H&M. H&M always has nice stuff at somewhat affordable prices. Lo and behold I find the layered necklace... Price check?

$17.80... NEXT!

I went into Forever 21, my favorite. Always has the best affordable stuff in there! Pretty layered pearl necklace that is comparable to the Claire's and H&M ones.

Only... $8.80! Can you believe it?! That's a freaking deal! Snatched that and took it to the paying counter fast!!!

I'm still craving lots and lots of accessories. I can't wait until Shanghai! ♥

After going shopping, Diana called me to eat lunch! Went to this quaint little place, very homey and cute. I got some fried chicken and she got spaghetti. She talked about how beautiful Barcelona was. GAHH! I want to go. I want to travel. Hopefully after I have a steady job that pays WELL and I'll be able to travel with my beloveds. :)

I don't remember which day I to downtown with Jennifer, either Monday or Tuesday. Shopping for her prom dress. We went to Macy's and tried on some but it didn't work out. I tried on a dress too just for the hell of it. HAHA, it's seriously beautiful! I'm starting to have an infatuation with the mermaid dresses, very cute! Someone should go to prom in a qipao. Damn beautiful lah!

My sister bought a Wii, so I've been playing with my mom and uncle. :P SO fun! My arm gets tired though. :/

Went to school yesterday to get baby but Diana called me for lunch again. :P We went to this Vietnamese shop. I got a BBQ chicken sandwich, it was pretty good and now I'm craving Vietnamese sandwiches...

I bought a ton of stuff online the other day too. Mostly belly rings. I got a pair of sandals and a brass knuckle necklace. :)

Guess that's it! :)

Red halter with dream catcher. :)

Military style shirt/dress

Striped cardigan

Sweater dress... for clubbing. :P

Faux corset, I think it's from GUESS.

Haven't bitched in a while...

But this post will not be about bitching! HAHA. :)

I can barely remember what I did since the last time I blogged so I guess I'll start with the most recent.

Yesterday just so happened to be the end of my spring break and working 5 days out of 7. At least I'll have money to buy stuff in Shanghai!

Oh, if you don't know already, I will be heading off to Shanghai in October for World Expo. I am excited to see what they have to offer. As well as tons of shopping!

Jenny, Michelle and I went to a body piercing shop since Jenny wanted her belly pierced. Unfortunately she didn't have the proper ID and was refused the belly piercing. We talked about tattoos and what not and I'm contemplating another tattoo. I want one with all shading, no outlines. I watched clicknetwork's skin art episode of UV tattoos. Seems interesting and has compelled me slightly to get one, but the short amount of years it takes to fade, I don't know about that...

I actually met Xiaxue during my spring break! Fucking awesome! She seemed a little uneasy but whatevs. I really like her boots. :x

Regina's birthday and we went to get dessert. I paid for her because it was her birthday! A little gesture I learned from Jennifer.

Went to Jonathan's house for a spring break bbq! We had a huge water fight. :) Very fun.

I went clubbing for the first time, which started my spring break off right. Lots of fun and hopefully will be able to go sometime again. Boyfriend has a problem with me going clubbing though.

I bought some clothes during spring break and 2 pairs of shoes as well. (Everything happens during spring break!) I think I'll hold off on buying anymore clothes. I might chip out some money to buy some sandals and what not for the summer but other than that, the rest of my money will be going to shopping in Shanghai!

At the club! :)

Happy birthday Regina! ♥

Mina looks cute here. :)

Happy almost birthday Linda!

Mahjong like a boss!


Making water balloons.


Hello Xiaxue. :)
