Procrastination

It's been a long time since I've posted, but if you look at it, it's only been a few months back. Guess time now is moving too fast for us that something that happened less than one year ago can feel like it's been years...

It's been 3 months since I started my degree program. I enjoy it, I learn a lot of new things everyday and the stress I receive is both happy and frustrating.

I figured, since I "started" a whole new life, I might as well give the blog a little makeover. It's not huge, but it's significant enough to see change :3

I'm sorry that I can't really post any artwork yet.. I've been crazy tied up with assignments these 3 months :( But I've learned a lot of pretty cool tricks since I started so I will most likely create more things soon!

Funny thing is though, I've been really overwhelmed with the assignments lately but yet I can't seem to move my butt to really make a move on it. My mind's been blank and ideas just don't seem to come as easily as it used to :/ What's more is that I woke up today with a stiff neck and it's just not helping me at all.

But I've got to dust this blog just so that you know that I'm still here! Hopefully I'd get back to having ideas soon! In the meantime, I need to get out of this procrastination phase.

Japan Trip 2014! (Part 1)

I figured that this is going to be a reaaaal long post so I just sorta decided to split it into parts x)

So I ACTUALLY went to JAPAN *throws confetti*
Would totally cross it off my bucket list but I loved it so much it will stay uncrossed x)


Took a selfie at the airport, I was crazy excited, who wouldn't be right?
First International Family Holiday, and we go to Japan!


Still in disbelief...


Still in disbelief...


7 hours can get pretty boring, so many camwhoring HAHAH

While daylight was still possible.
And STILL. in disbelief.


You can get many pretty shots when you're up in the sky you know,
I'm pretty sure this was a #nofilter but it looks like it had one ._.


Plane food~ It was.. meh HAHAH


I see little ice pieces at my window~ Why can't I put emoji's?! D:


Attempting to get rid of boredom.. *takes pictures of what mom does in the plane*




and FINALLY, the sun begins to set, and I couldn't decide which photo was prettier so HERE YOU GO XD


Going into the night~ 


Flying over the city of Japan..



It finally sank in. I. am. in. Japan.


You wouldn't believe how excited I was HAHAHA
Thinking back, I'm starting to feel excited reading about this again!

Okay, with all the amazing stories, it's definitely normal that the first place I went to in Japan was the toilet, but I did not take a picture of it because I was busy enjoying the buttons hahah


What I did take a picture of IS the vending machine :P
Okay, it's just some normal vending machine, but since it was WINTER, they had both HOT and COLD drinks.

It's really rare that you see really good working vending machines, and believe me, they were all over Tokyo in mint condition!


The first time I'm in winter so a selfie is a must :P
It's about 11pm (Japan time) though HAHAH

And were waiting for our bus to get to the first hotel, Toyoko Inn @ Ota-Ku.


Got on the bus when it came SUPER punctually. Like serious. On the dot. Even if the time stated was based on this ugly time on a digital clock. But seriously, it was on the dot with the DIGITAL clock wth.

If you don't know where I'm from (Malaysia) then you wouldn't understand why I'm so fascinated by this.

In Malaysia, it is REALLY hard to see any form of PUBLIC transport to EVER be on time. Which is why it is really hard to ever estimate how long it will take you to get from one place to another ><


Our room in the budget hotel. Despite it being a budget hotel, it was still very well-kept and the staff were all really hospitable. LOVE LOVE LOVE. 


Right, I mentioned that it was about 11pm in Japan right? Well, dad was hungry.

So instead of settling down in the hotel, we walked around in the cold wind, which I actually surprisingly enjoyed. HAHAA

After exploring the 7-Eleven that was right opposite our hotel, we asked the cashier where to get ramen and BLESS ME TINY BIT OF COMPREHENSION OF JAPANESE we managed to find the place,


and had one. of. the. best. ramen. ever.
Not cheap, but it was a good midnight snack. Really good.

And that concluded my first day in Japan. Sorta. HAHAHA
If you're already tired from reading, you can stop right here cause I'm putting a border so you can continue next time? :P

_________________________________________________________________________________

Day 2


View of a typical morning from my hotel window. We only realised after that the windows are NOT tinted and people can actually see us in out jammies HAHA oh well~


Cold, sunny day~


We actually used this day to travel to our main hotel (In Shinagawa) but pretty pictures anyway~ :P


After getting out of the train station in Shinagawa~


 Our Key Card, the hotel was right opposite the station so we just walked there hahah


Messing up the room~


We walked around after that. Despite not knowing where we were going, Japan's signboards are convenient enough to allow us not to get lost and the hotel is right opposite the station so who CAN get lost? 

Bought some strawberries from a Kinokuniya Mart nearby because strawberries in Malaysia are not sweet or huge for that matter. 


DO YOU SEE HOW HUGE THIS IS?!


Amazingly sweet too! I have never eaten strawberries until I came to Japan and after I left, I didn't eat any strawberries here cause they're sour >o<

We didn't have any permanent plans, so definitely we bought a train ticket and went to Tokyo, like the city Tokyo


It was quieter than I thought actually, probably cause everyone is busy working while we are busy being all tourist-y


Tokyo train station :3 And a bunch of Japanese people taking photos as well hahah


More pictures~ Of my sisters' hand ._.



Right, so we took this tour bus thing (that was free) and it will just bring us on a small tour (let us see the palace and stuff)


Ginza :3


More Ginza :3


It was getting late, actually not really it was like 5 when it started getting dark like omg in Malaysia it gets dark at 8 hahaha

So we went back to the hotel (after dinner, which was at Sukiya) and explored their mall.
Yes, they had a mall. 

We went into the EPSON Aqua Stadium and watched many shows, like Dolphin and Sea Lions. I liked the shows





Pictures of fishes and sea creatures *blub bulb*


It was late night and dad was hungry again so guess what they bought?
McD. 

The kids were still kinda full though so we didn't exactly had the full enjoyment yet nyeheheh

That concludes Day 2! I will totally blog about the rest next time!

2014?

Is it me, or am I getting the feeling that with each passing year the New Year becomes less exciting?
:/

I went for work,
and they had a Lucky Bag event.

What frustrated me so much was the fact that there are such customers who not only ignore your instructions but just frustrates you with questions where the answers had to be repeated.

Lucky Bag - A bag which contents are hidden and disclosed and BY RIGHT should be opened only AFTER you've bought it.

So it's like a Christmas Present. Only that it's a New Years present to yourself.

So let's think about it this way (I don't mean to insult or point fingers or anyone. It's just an observations. If you feel hurt, either you PERASAN, or you did it before but never thought about it), a Lucky Bag is like, a gift. A wrapped gift, with a surprise.
If you were to open it, isn't it RUINING the surprise, or potentially ruining someone else's?

If they were clothes, how would you know if they were of good quality and the correct sizes and has nice patterns etc?
That's the point. It's a LUCKY BAG. It's not right if you would purposely CREATE your own luck by peeping inside.
The sizes are written on the piece of paper OUTSIDE the bag. If you're still unsure then ask about what size would fit you best.
However the clothes look are ENTIRELY up to your LUCK. Please la, don't ruin the fun :/

I know this sounds like some spoilt person saying things like she herself has not done it or sinned (I have never bought a lucky bag before) but the thought of having lucky bags are meant to be fun and not troublesome.

Giving or selling the lucky bag should be a happy experience and not a troublesome one, for those who do follow the points about not opening them and peeking in them, don't you think they'd feel like it's not worth it anymore to have lucky bags since everyone's just opening them like cannibals? :/

On the other hand, HAPPY 2014!
I am not angry or anything at these people, just disappointed.

Johnny Rockets @ The Curve

So we decided to go to The Curve for a change.

My sister heard of this place called Johnny Rockets where the entire layout was like a diner in the olden times,
WHO WOULD WANT TO MISS THE CHANCE TO TRY THAT OUT?!

So we made our way to Johnny Rockets - The Original Burger :P 


True enough, its layout was like those diners, they even had a JUKEBOX! :O


So they opened at 11am and we made it there quite early and had put our names on the waiting list. 
They opened the "diner" with a dance. ALL THE STAFF DANCED. TO A SONG. FROM THE JUKEBOX. 

It was a good start, I must say. A good way to get the customers all excited to try out the food!
They then started seating hungry customers who were on the waiting list, chronologically. 

We were number 13. After we heard the person before us being called, we waited for our turn. And waited. And waited. For half and hour

The worst part was that there were STILL empty seats. And sure enough, customers started complaining. They explained that this was their way of quality control because they are not a fast food restaurant, but half an hour. 

How did we know though, that we waited half an hour? Oh, they had a very good clock! Another performance was given at half hour intervals. Again, that was a good feature of theirs, but the least they could do was seat the people first. Instead of entertaining the crowd (they probably were entertaining the already seated ones but not the ones waiting), they should just fill up their booths first. 

So after the wait, we were finally seated. But because we were waiting in line for quite a while, we already decided what we wanted to eat.

Sis and I decided to share a milkshake and I decided to order their Bacon Cheddar burger. 

Again. Guess how long we waited for the food? Another half an hour. We watched another energetic performance from the staff and even though it was a catchy tune and dance, it was starting to get on the nerves. 


LUCKILY, the milkshake was DELICIOUS. There was just something about this milkshake that was really good, and it brought the excitement back up as we waited for the food. 

*Do note however, even though the service time was really slow, the service that the waiters give are really good. They were really friendly and were constantly smiling and helpful.


And my Bacon Cheddar Burger came not long after the milkshake! It was like a "Finally!! Can't wait to try!" moment. The waiter also drew a smiley face with ketchup on a dish for us to eat with our fries! :) Things were looking much better at this moment. 

I bit into it, it was good, but not as good as I thought. 

My opinion was that it was just a normal burger, and honestly for the price I was paying, it wasn't worth it. BurgerLab was probably more worth it. They did have something I have not tried in a burger before though, they used potato buns. 

The ratings I would give is: 

Service: 8/10 (the waiting time took points away)
Food: 6/10 
Price: 4/10
Overall: 6/10

It's not a place that I would frequently go to, but maybe once in a LONG while. If you have not tried it though, at least give it a shot. The experience of the staff dancing and the environment is something to look forward to!

You can find them at: G52, The Street, The Curve, Mutiara Damansara.

Look who flew in the window!


So I have a Churpie. 
AND I'M LOVING IT.

It's adorable-ness just makes me feel like hugging it and never letting go. 
I've been wanting this every since I saw it. 
And the fact that you can't buy it makes me want it even more.

I know this blogpost is unrelated to society and how life has been.
But I feel guilty for leaving my blog unattended for so long due to assignments and such :/
I PROMISE I WILL TRY TO BLOG MORE

As the year starts to come to an end,
I realise that it starts to get more hectic
and assignments are just so many.

So now CHURPIE WILL ACCOMPANY ME >=]
I missed the Nuffnang FoodFest because I thought that I couldn't eat anything without the app :/
But I only found out that I could after I got home...
#badluckjessica

But I will try to go for the Churpout2013 AND I AM EXCITED!!!
I went for Churpout2012 and I had so much fun meeting all the bloggers,
hope that one day I'd be as awesome as them *crosses fingers*

So see you guys there? :)

WELCOME TO THE FAMILY CHURPIE ❤

Jessica.
