My New Acoustic Guitar!

I ordered a Fender DG-8S Acoustic Guitar Pack from Long & Mcquade online on June 15th! And it arrived today! =D!

The reason why I didn’t go and pick it up in-store was because I actually saw this specific guitar set in Steve’s Music Store (downtown in Queen’s Street), but I was turned off by the service and lack of extra stock, AND the state of the ONE guitar they had in stock on display. I was so bummed when I left the store cuz of an embarrassing situation that had happened there. But good thing for me, I found the same set on L&MQ’s website online! And although I was going to pick it up on a Friday… (which was the friday with Charisse, actually), I found out that it was out of stock THE MORNING OF. So of course, I panicked a tad bit, and ordered it online… even though it said Out of Stock online too… At that point I just didn’t care, I just wanted my guitar, and as long as it was new out of the box, I didn’t care where it came from.

So I was hoping that somehow the company would deal with the lack of stock, and I just paid, and was waiting for almost ten days until I emailed the company. A day later, an email came saying they shipped it! And THE NEXT DAY… Purolator brought it to my door. I actually didn’t receive it in person, but apparently the mail guy came just ten minutes before I reached the door.

I kind of put off opening it cuz I wanted to take pictures with the dslr, but since my sister took it for her event, and since I was just so impatient… I just went ahead and used my phone to capture this memory, lol~

So on with the details of the guitar, and less of my rambling…

A Day Out with Reggie~!

Today I went out to meet my friend, Reggie (nickname), after a long time. We went to eat lunch at Fairview (again… lol).

 A polaroid capture of me, taken by Reggie. See that big pile of cheese? YUP. It was my lunch! (It was actually the appetizer, but I didn't realize it would be for four people >< lmao) (So we shared, but still couldn't defeat the overwhelming cheesiness and had to walk away defeated with a take out box...)

After lunch we went to watch Snow White and the Huntsman, which was… not… bad. But I can’t exactly say it was great either. When the credits rolled, both of us were just like “…what… I… don’t know what to say”, LOL. I liked the look of the film, it was definitely HD and stunning. But can’t say the same for the acting and editing. Kristen Stewart’s acting was a bit meh, even though I tried to like it, I really did. And Charlize Theron was …dramatic. O_O.

Some parts of the film were a bit ‘off’ too… like the scene would just cut, or it would seem random. Overall it could have been a lot better. It felt like there was potential that just fizzed out… and when we were done, both of us just had some kind of “incomplete” feeling. Which should never be a good thing to feel coming out from the theatres, I say.

The only thing I liked for sure was THORRRR~~~~~~ (lol~)
Chris Hemsworth~~~~
omgg~ la la la~ boy, did I like watching him, haha.
I realized today that I started having a bit of a crush on him. I didn’t really pay much attention to him in Thor and Avengers, but in this movie he totally stole the scenes for me. He looked less “god-like” this time, and he was much more… human. Charming, he is. (And the Australian accent doesn’t hurt!!)  😉

Anyway, we walked around a bit, and took pictures, la la la~

We also visited the Apple store, and out of habit, I just had to webcam, lol!

The Apple store’s lighting always makes me look so much better than in actuality, haha. I always look pale, and my lips always pink. I approve. XD

Anyway, it was a quick hang out, but it was still nice. I was actually supposed to give her her birthday present (from like, almost a month past), but I, being stupid, forgot to bring it with me =____=. It wasn’t until I was on the second bus that I remembered, and since I was already a bit late, I didn’t want to go back and get it.

Meh! I guess it was meant to be! We’ll just have to hang out again! Mwaha!

We don’t have a lot of pictures together, something to work on!

A Day in Vaughn

I went to Charisse’s house today.

The plan was to go there before noontime, because usually if I go somewhere after noontime, I feel like the day is somewhat shorter. So I left the house at around 11:30, and then realized that I had no cash, and no TTC bus tokens except for one. So I ended up spending time going to the bank at Finch to withdraw money. By the time I got to the YRT/VIVA bus station, it was around 12:40-ish?

So I get on, I sit for about 10-15 minutes, all the while playing with my phone… and then I realize, “Wait. I’m on a bus. And I’m not on just ANY bus. I’m on the bus to Charisse’s house…” then I look outside, AND I DON’T RECOGNIZE MY SURROUNDINGS.

YES. THAT’S RIGHT.
I GOT LOST IN VAUGHN TODAY.

So I sort of mini-freeze… and try to call her to ask for assistance/ideas, and the call doesn’t connect. =_=. So then I look up the map for the bus route, and not knowing how far or how long the bus was going to take, I just stay sitting… hoping that maybe I could just sit until it looped back. Boy, was I wrong. It was a good thing Charisse called me back, because otherwise I would have sat waiting in that bus for HOURS, apparently. SMH. It was so fail. Lol.

Anyway, so I got on the bus going the opposite direction, eventually. And eventually, I reached Charisse’s.

Now the nice parts! Yay! 😀

Dariya Palty Bubble Hair Dye – Namachoco Waffle

So I dyed my hair for the first time ever today.

I had red, pink, and lilac highlights before, but never dyed my whole head.

I knew about the brand, Palty, since I think five or six years ago, when I was into Japanese fashion and stuff. At that time Palty was the craze among fans. My gosh, I still remember, it was like the cool brand of hair dye on Soompi forums. Anyway, yeah, so I knew about it for a while now. But then since dyeing my whole head of hair went against my “principles” (aka my Beautician mother’s brainwashing/random lectures on how non-Professional beauty products are the worst evil concoctions ever created)… I never wanted to change my hair colour fully or anything. Until… well, now.

The hair dye I used was

Dariya’s Palty Bubble Hair Color – “NamaChoco Waffle”

I got taken in by her bangs in this picture, tbh. =_=. And the colour looked brown but natural-looking, but.. nice? It looks more red-toned in this picture though.
