My Adventure on Foreign Soil!

I’m making it sound more epic than it actually is. Hey, embassies are considered the soil of the country they belong to, so I’m technically correct. Geez, it needs a touch of dramatic flare, is all.

It was QUICK. They newly introduced an actual appointment system, with ticket numbers like at a fast food place, and it’s so much more efficient and less messy than before. Five years ago, it was on a first come first served basis, and it sucked. I’d have to miss school and stay at the embassy for around six hours just for a ten minute interview, and a few signatures.

We were out of there in an HOUR. And it only took us that long too because the cashier wasn’t in at the time, so we had to wait a bit. Plus, other people were still showing up. I love hour our stereotypical Desi un-punctuality is even influencing an embassy of a foreign nation ❤ It brings a tear to my “dual” national eye :’)

While the first dude was checking out our application for my passport renewal, he was fiddling with the date stamp, and after a while finally stamped 28 July 2014 onto the form. It’s June, bro. My dad politely asked why he’d stamped July, and then realizing his error, fixed it. He also forgot which ink to sign at the bottom of the form in, so it was fixed up professionally with half a black signature that had been finished and rewritten in red ink. Poor guy must’ve been reaaally sleepy, really off his game, or just plain ol’ clumsy. Who knows.

The second dude that conducted my interview (they didn’t have me take a proper oath, but I still had to promise that I hadn’t lied on the forms, with my right hand raised. I hope that’s the closest I ever get to a proper oath too 😛 ) was a gora guy, and he was pretty great at what he was doing with the questions, and answering those my dad asked too.

There was also a stop between these two guys, which was stopping and paying the cashier the fees for the new passport.

We were waiting for the cashier to open shop, and this other family, that came AFTER we did, just stood huddled in front of the station, like they belonged there! I was pretty miffed at their hurry, and their rudeness, especially since they were counting out which ticket holder had to go up to which window. It was hence pretty satisfying when they were asked to move, and our ticket number was called. That aunty’s smug, haughty look was wiped clean of her face then as she shuffled back to take a seat and wait her turn like everyone else. Hah. Justice. #TheTripleA

That’s about it for that. I didn’t get much sleep last night though…even though I went to bed at around 1 am, I didn’t fall asleep until four. And so I’m running on two hours of sleep, and basically sugar and sunlight~

It was fun. We went to Second Cup afterwards, grabbed a bit of coffee, and some other tidbits (double chocolate muffin, a slice of apple pie, a chicken wrap). Ammi of course wasn’t very fond of her coffee. She’d ordered a medium/regular size too! I got a Cuzco, which is this nutty(aw yeah) chocolate-ish (barely) Latin American blend of coffee, apparently. Adding foam milk just made it all the more better ❤ (Ammi used up half the brown sugars we’d been served, so I only got to use two packets 😦 )

Aaaand now I’m home, typing this out, while I load up a Rizzoli & Isles episode ^_^

Hee hee, well, I’m off now 😛

I’ll type out more about Ayesha’s birthday later today, I hope~

Just CIE Things- and Distractions.

So.

CIE. A-levels. At university level. Eeps.

To say the least.

But I’m in the middle of my exams, and I’d like to add a few things I am currently obsessed with in different amounts. Varying from using day and night, to just to pass the time. Precious time that should not be wasted at that…

So here we go.

Anime (of course, the largest category);

I Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei

  Genre- Magic, Fantasy, Action (and yet uptil now there’s been a SEVERE lack of it on Tatsuya’s part!! =Y ), School Life, Comedy, Romance, futuristic, Sci-Fi, Technology.  Some incest jokes, and implied incest.

II Black Bullet  

 Genre- Action (duh), has a loli (not a genre, but still must be said for some people.), some Comedy, Thriller, Post Apocalypse, End of the World Scenario, Sci-fi, Futuristic.

III Akuma no Riddle

^Whoa, that’s a huge pic =P

Genre- Yuri (lesbian content)(so far, soft, and not anything vulgar. Not even kissing so far, but it’s only been 6 episodes.), Action, Psychological, School Life, Assassins.

IV Yu-Gi-Oh!

Which one?? The FIRST one. And no, this isn’t a nostalgic I’m-gonna-watch-old-childhood-stuff-again at all. I never saw it as a kid. So on the insistence of Zaid, and many many Duel Monsters vs Yu-Gi-Oh! debates, I decided to give it a shot. No picture, because, ew, animation from 2000.

Side note V- HunterxHunter

I am now finally up to date on HxH~! Woot Woot! Only problem is, now I’m dying for the new eps *-*

On to other stuff now…Like,

VI A Korean Drama- The Bride of the Century

And now, the best scene that had me die of laughter-

Peeing Granny

^The scene where Kang Ju’s Granny peed on Doo Rim~! xD

VII Teen Wolf

Sorry, but it’s exams time. And the theme song never fails to make me burst into laughter. I mean, Scott McCaw, the flying werewolf. It’s just too damn swagtastic.

But the stories all about Stiles now <3333 AND they added Japanese stuff to it! Like characters, mythological creatures, and even the Yakuza. I mean, it’s got the Nine Tailed Fox in it. #Naruto #Kitsune

VIII New Girl

Yeaahh…I never liked it, but Exam Hype has crippled my brain and tricked it into finding it amusing currently. Weird.

IX Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23!

Another TV show I started, and it’s funny, despite the  jokes being just a tad too adult for my taste.

And the rest are other anime I may be starting soon, and what not.

Like Durarara!, Dragonar Academy, Letter Bee Academy, and others I’ve forgotten right now. Oi, I’m sleeeepy. Excuse enough.

So that’s my so far distraction list! I may have forgotten a few, but oh wyell. I’ll add more if they arise. I hope note. I need to study all that I can now.

Ciao~

Ze “Carnival of Cocoas” & A Rant on Mah Umbrella

So it pooouuured today, and it was wonderful. (Haha, Spring still isn’t here yet!)

Although yesterday was fantabulously wonderous!! It was raining, I had my fab ombre umbrella spinning round and round, while singing, and shimmying my way up and down the terrace. Singing loudly, of course. And, let me impress y’all with my multitasking skills, I was also texting my bro, Kamil.

Anyhoo, my umbrella died today =( After using it yesterday, I left it open in the shade on the terrace, and thought I’d just fold it up in the morning before heading out to school in case it rained today (which it did. A lot.).

Buut because I slept in today, I completely forgot and left it there. Ooh, what did Mother Nature do to my happy and bright umbrella in eight hours? Nothing. It wasn’t Mother Nature that did it. It was simply Mother.

My mom hastily wrapped up my umbrella, possibly while blindfolded, and broke four metal rods that kept the umbrella in shape. I came home to find it completely retarded and the closest thing resembling a star. I tinkered with it for around fifteen minutes and fixed it for the most part, but there’s still one rod that won’t bend the right way. It’s a small abnormality, but it still functions.

But it bothers me the most, that out of all the practical things I get from my trip to Budapest, Hungary, my mom still manages to meddle to the point where she ruins even an umbrella. And it’s not like you can get decent umbrellas here either.

Grr. If everyone’s got a fatal flaw, my mother’s is her Over Efficiency. And I hate it with a passion. A burning passion. Think Heathcliff’s love for Catherine. (#WH)

So anywaaays…It rained a lot, and the sunny days are gone for a while. It’s all cold and drizzle like at the moment.

The perfect time to search up some recipes for warming you from the inside out drinks!

And hence the title. A Carnavil of Cocoas. Sounds so brilliant ❤

But the credit doesn’t go to me, it goes to the owner of this coffee infused and obsessed recipe blog I found on my quest, Sugarbeanbakers.blogspot.com!

So click HERE for the recipes on the original site. Or you could click the first picture, the one with the me inspired mug and the title “A Carnival of Cocoas” on it too.

Have fun, and stay waaarm ❤

Eeeeps, all these drinks are putting me in such a CHRISTMASful moood *w* And I will most likely wear my Special Solstice Snowflake sweater tomorrow now ^_^ Ehehe.

MovieReview- Rise of the Guardians (2012)

So…I saw this random post on 9gag about how Jack Frost from the Rise of the Guardian’s was a lot like Elsa from Frozen, and I REALLLY wanted to watch the  movie then.

I had wanted to watch this movie since it was first up in the theater, but I remember that my parents were fed up with the cinema being so far away from our house that they weren’t willing for me to go with my friends, and were too tired/lazy to take me themselves. And I kind of forgot about it til I saw that post. And decided to watch it after all.

'

It was an adorable little film all about hope, belief, fun, and fear. It was brilliant. I absolutely ADORED Jack Frost himself, so much that I am willing to assign him a date.

Oh? What do I mean by that? Every Guardian (but the Tooth Fairy, but she’s a hummingbird, so meh.) (..and the sandman…)(OK, so HALF the Guardians) have dates or holidays assigned to them. Easter. Christmas. SOMETHING of the sort.

And even if the other two don’t have set times or seasons, who cares? Sandy’s time was night time when the kids slept and dreamed. Tooth Fairy’s thing was teeth gathering so…whatever to that.

[Although I TRULY appreciated that the teeth had some sort of deeper meaning to them. Memories! That was utterly brilliant. I found it perfectly fitting for the teeth to hold memories from our childhood- and the best and most important ones at that. This was something I really could sink my  teeth into- Oh wow. That really was an unintended pun. If it weren’t, I would have really taken credit for it.]

And so, Jack Frost, the dude with the fun and snow, I’m giving you a date. Your season is obviously winter. So now, your date should be even more obvious. It’s pretty important. It’s the Winter Solstice. The 21st of December. The shortest day, but the longest night to think up pranks, tricks, and create a blizzard. (I’m not a hundred percent sure that’s factually correct about the time though..) Perfect.

I like having my own personal Guardian to my own little holiday =3 It’s name is the only thing I don’t own. And the Guardian too, course. But then again…Frosty is pretty great too..If only I were believed in >.> <.<

Aaah, it’s late, and I have a Rehearsal on the morrow…Er, but I haven’t even typed out the actual review of the movie…um, I’ll try finishing this up quickly.

But there really are a bunch of similarities between Elsa and Jack that it’s startling. Or, predictable.

Just like this movie- Ooooh. But then again, it’s a kids movie, so a happy and perfect ending is suspected and expected from the very beginning. But it’s still worth watching.

I like it’s animation better than Frozen’s though. But I found Frozen’s utterly adorable! And Frost is a much deeper character. I’m not just saying that cuz his hair reminds me of Killua’s or that he’s cute. Or that he’s mischievous. Seriously, Elsa was pretty shallow- there wasn’t any character growth *semicolon* she was just stagnant as a character.

''

 

And his FEARS! Now that’s what I call realistic. As a literature student, I adored how universal and understandable it was. Or at least, made to be relateble and believable.

I just wished the Man on the Moon wasn’t given such a godly state as heavenly moonlight and would’ve been SHOWN to us. I really would. Plus, they never did resolve how Jack’s memories were literally stolen from him. He didn’t recall his past, so he couldn’t find his “centre”. (Pish posh, what’s this? I spell with a single British spelling, and spell check is on my case…huh. I guess being half American and yet being in British schooling would be confusing sometimes…) Nor did they resolve or show how he handled the silence from the Man on the Moon after so long, and about such important matters. I mean, the poor guy was having an identity crisis for over 300 years. That’s no light matter.

La la la, but really. I loved this movie. Maybe not overall as much as Frozen, but I do like Jack Frost much more than Elsa. But she is easily the better architect, sorry about that, Frost. Just being honest.

But, fear not, you are the 21st of December. So cheers to that!

Oh, and of course, I just HAVE to compare this part of the animation- which had better ice, frost, snow, snowflakes? It’s pretty tough- I’ve decided that both movies win a few awards there. Frozen gets best overall ice and specifically snowflakes. But Rise of the Guardian’s gets frost, easy. But then again- cuz of Frost’s name, there wasn’t all that much focus on ice either, nor individual snowflakes, so it’s not like you’re exposed to terrible ice animation throughout the film.

I say watch it. Definitely. Compare to Frozen, too. I’m sure y’all will. I’d love to hear comparisons and other responses to the movie too.

Did you find the Russian Santa cooler than any other like me? Wish you had seen a six foot one bunny too? Or maybe wished you had Sandy on your charades team? Found Tooth a bit creepy with her feathers and half-hummingbird-ness? Found Frost cute, but strange that he didn’t wear shoes for no apparent reason?

…I actually forgot the hashtag I had for my literature ness D=

A New Comic- Beelive!

Alya had these rings that spelled out ‘believe’. Each ring had  a letter on it. They didn’t fit her very well, but did fit me. I wanted to wear them and go around going “Cuz all I gotta do is -believe- in me, Pokemon!!”. She wanted to wear them too. So Mnaz comes into play, divides the ring into TWO words, so we can share. I got “bee”. She got “live”. And now, we bro fist, yelling “believe”!!

So this comic shall be named Beelive. And that is also the name of the main setting in this comic too.

Beelive Heading

Plus, this shall be my first ever comic that will be called a “manga”. Even though it is read like a comic, and it’s mostly English, this comic will be AS Japanese as possible. It’s about a Cosplay Cafe, and anime addicts/otakus. How could this not have happened?!

The comic is in a semi demented state of the future. Although there is really just a year difference between Alya and Mnaz when it comes to schooling, I’ve made it somewhere around five. Alya and Mnaz have graduated uni, and have started their careers. I’m in my final year of (Japanese!) high school.

Alya’s made it as a plastic surgeon. Mnaz is a mafia leader, who’s cover is owning a dojo and training Goku/Goko in the martial arts. (Pshaw, doctors are just too boring, so I gave her a career change.) They got where they wanted to be in life…but their dream hasn’t happened yet.

See, it’s their dream, as well as mine, to open a Cosplay Cafe together. And after working for a while, they have enough money saved up to buy the perfect location, and have everything figured out- except how we’re going to run it in the morning. Alya and Mnaz have their jobs, and I’ve got school. But if we don’t have anyone working there in the mornings, we’d miss out on the afternoon/lunch rush and lose loads of profit. So, in a bind, with short-staffed-ness, we don’t open the cafe quite yet.

Random Doodle- Beelive Trio

Untiiiiil, I find us a perfect Japanese Android that I stole from Adil, a mad scientist who works in his secret laboratory. And XJ-19, the android, handles the fort while we’re busy doing our respective stuff in the mornings.

In the afternoon, we all gather and meet at the Cafe to join in, and help out. We meet and greet our customers and generally have fun. Plus we’ve got super powers (how could we NOT?). So, I’ll be seen flying around, serving the sugar free stuff (Alya doesn’t trust me to get the sugar stuffed stuff to the tables without “taste testing” first.). Alya will be the store manager, and drool at all the pretty boys/bishounen. Mehernaz will be the one- I don’t know, I haven’t figured it out yet…

And I’m pondering kidnapping and in slaving Asmaa, Alya’s older sister, to be out chef. Mhmm.

Innocent Act

^[a random panel from the comic, what with my innocent act and all =P ]

But how do I get the rest of our crew into this comic, huh? Weeeell, I was thinking of having a high school reunion, and having it held at the Cafe! And then, everyone will just keep popping in, every now and then. Some will become regular customers, like Zaid, Shayan, and Mateena (anime addicts).

Plus, Mnaz proposes that Zaid fall in love with XJ-19. And have a nose bleed when he sees her. I’m thinking of doing that.

Aaaagh, there’s just SO much more to mention about this comic too! But I gotta go draw some sketches for the actual cafe, and for it’s lay out and all. Since the next scenes going to be there.

Anyhoo, I’ll leave the rest for another post, like Kirito and the Neighboring Rivals for some other time =P

Buuut it feels just so GRAND drawing a comic after sooo impossibly long ❤ And now I’ll actually have something to do in physics xD Huzzah to that!

A Short Rample on ze Up-to-Date-ish HxH!

Oh the tension!!!

Being up to date, or nearly up to date on Hunter x Hunter- Aaaaaah!!

It’s just so INTENSE right now! The Chimera Ant arc has hit it’s climax, and now you’re just stuck waiting for all the fighting to finish, and to see whom emerges as the winner- who’s left standing, and who dies, gone forever.

This isn’t DBZ, where Krillin dies all the time, and just get’s revived back repeatedly. Nope, death is death in this show.

And I don’t want any of may characters to die in this epic showdown =(

Pluuus, there’s the whole internal drama going on inside of dashingly handsome Killua, about loosing Gon to find out the answer to whether or not this is revenge for Kite or so much more- the determination and constant drive to murder and kill Pitou in a cruel way, if manageable.

Gosh, I just GOTTA go watch the next ep. Which is 115 at the moment =3

Toodlooo!

*poof*

-Ze

ps.
Gwah! I’ve got the Chimera Ant ending theme song stuck in my heaaaad! >w< It’s just sooo catchyyyy ❤ And fast =)

I’m Ze Cookie Monster

Omnomnomnomnomnomnom!!

Yes, another nickname from waaayyy back in the seventh grade, the Sesame Street Gang. I was the Cookie Monster, Hiffee was Elmo, and Abeer was Count Van Count. Good times, good times.

And ever since these random wanabes have started wearing Cookie Monster hoodies and Elmo hoodies even though they never watched Sesame Street as children totally disgusts me, and makes me feel ripped off. I’ve loved it since I was four, and the Cookie Monster’s been my fav character since then! And these people wear these hoodies, and talk about it’s awesomeness which just SUCKS.

Rip off!! *a kick to the shin and runs off*

But I just got this cute little bright blue, legit Cookie Monster hoodie from Hadia yesterday. It’s go the fluffy fur like the actual Cookie Monster does, so I look like him, and don’t have a blue hoodie with his face on the front. Too cool for that shiz.

I wore it to school today, and everyone loved it and agreed that I am the Cookie Monster =3

The best coincidence was when Zaid showed me that he was wearing Cookie Monster socks xD This just supports the AlisonXSimon shipping =P It’s just fate =’D

Now I poof, so that I can post properly about what tomorrow’s plan is SUPPOSED TO BE. Since tomorrow, I’m pretty sure some different shiz is gonna go down xD

Ooor, I can just forget that I said I’d write a seperate post, and just sort of add it along here… I mean, why not?

So, the plan is to leave school at 12.30 ish pm, once I’m out of class. Then, we divide from Anime Addicts to The Semi-Normals, and cruise to the resturant. In styyyle. I shall be listening to a buuunch of Japanese anime theme songs. And singing along too xD

Once, we get there, if we’re early we’ll chill, take a bunch of pictures, videos, and just mess around. Basically, creep all those at that posh place out. If not, we’ll just go towards our reserved table(s) and order food. And mess around obviously. Possibly play some Truh, Dare, or Rather, or perhaps do some strange pick-up challenges with the chopsticks.

Note to self- Do not forget to take your own chopsticks. Just for the hell of it. And to bother Zaid xD

After eating, which will evidently take two hours, a bunch of us plan on heading to Alya’s place, after which I shall be picked off and thrown into tution, to cram some math =Y

The people included in this bday shindig are, of course, the bday girls, Alya, and Mehernaz, Ayesha, Zara, Zaid, Shayan (maybe?), Saliha, and I ^_^

I can’t wait! It’s going to be so fab =D And I plan on towering over Alya and Ayesha by wearing my wedged boots =3 Huzzah to height!

*I’ve just said or done something crazy. Or both.*
“How high are you??”
“5’2″!”
