A Quest at the Mall

This all happened yesterday, but I was too sleepy to type this entire story out.

My mom needed to buy my cousin a birthday present, so I tagged along. That’s literally how this story starts. I was just bored at home, and felt like going outside. (I know, how crazy of me, right?)

This turned into a quest very quickly, as soon as we climbed onto the escalators. See, my mom got onto it, but these two aunties managed to get between us, and so I was behind them. So it’s my mom, then them- a granny, a mother, and a little kid- and then finally me.

The kid is like on drugs or something- he was insanely hyper!- and had obviously just had over a spoonful of sugar, and was jitterbugging around, jumping up and down, constantly in motion. Then, he falls, drags Mama down with them, down a few steps to where I was standing, and dammit, I got stabbed in the ankle by that evil auntie’s heel!! I got stabbed in the ankle by an auntie’s heels!! I was also pushed, cuz damn she had some momentum going for her, and nearly slipped down the escalator (it was going up.) but since I’d gripped the railing thingie just in time, I was safe. After we got off the escalator, I gave them at least a 7 meter radius, and walked around them to my mom. That auntie was evil =/

No joke, after the kid did all that, I was expecting at least an ‘I’m sorry”, SOME form of an apology, but no, she just scolded him playfully, with the most lyrical fake voice ever, to make it sound like she was the best mother ever, scolding her kid for misbehaving, right in public, cheers to her for being so reasonably disciplined, and all that. I mean, you could HEAR the smugness in her voice, like she was thrilled to be in the spotlight- her time to shine. Bleh, desperate for attention. Another thing- who goes, just for the heck of it, shopping in heels? If your out with friends, or it’s a date, and you want to look nice for and to impress the people you are going with fine, but if you’re going with your son that’s barely capable of putting one foot in front of the other- wait, that more aptly describes his clumsiness, not his age…since he wasn’t that young. Son that’s around six or seven? and your mother, who obviously doesn’t care about what color she’s wearing so long as it’s all warm? Are the heels really necessary then?

And then, on our way up to this store Breakout, I noticed for the first time ever who was at the mall. Usually, I just notice if there are a lot of people or not. I don’t bother to specify and notice- hey, there are loads of old people today, or something of that sort. But today I did, and there were waaayy too many kids for comfort.

And in Breakout, bam!, it’s full of little kids! It was terrible, I was trying reaaally hard to avoid them.

Oh, and don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate kids. Well, I don’t particularly like them either…I guess it’s like people, if I like them I do, but that doesn’t mean I like all those of that age group…something like that? It depends which kid, and I’ll give you an opinion. I might love one, hate another, and just find the other three boring. But otherwise, I don’t dislike all kids in general. Kind of neutral about it? But I do have a general they-should-get-lost-ew-why-are-they-here?! attitude towards most kids HERE. That’s cuz parents let them do whatever the SHIT they want to do. And this story will explain what I mean. Since I don’t just mean that the parents will toss them their iPhones and give them their own by the age of five, I mean- well, you’ll get it soon enough.

So I’m standing towards a corner of the store featuring the guys’ stuff, cuz I was helping my mom pick something out for my brother. We finally decided on this hoodie that was stripped. But we were arguing on the color. They had this blue an green stripped one, and a navy blue and yellow one. I found the yellow one cooler, and I think my Que has waaayy too much blue and green in his wardrobe as it is. But, as we stand there debating it out, there’s this mannequin right next to me. And this little girl trying to climb it. Yes, she was in fact trying to CLIMB it. And her dad’s like right there, and he doesn’t even bat an eye, until she along with the mannequin come tuuumbling down, and she just wriggles away, jumping towards the next closest mannequin, and tries to get to the top of that one. The mannequin, explodes into an assortment of limbs on impact with the ground, right next to where I’m standing, and I narrowly avoid being impaled with a pink plastic arm.

See? Forget parenting, there’s no CONTROL over these kids here, and by the time they get to something like five, they will be untamable BEASTS. Fear them, and run. That’s the best advise I can give. When forced in their company, be wary, very very wary. But don’t flinch or show any indication of anything other than happiness and rainbows- they smell fear!

And that was my adventure at the mall. Them kids were out to get me O.o

Shopaholic on a Sunday

So yeah. i went to the mall today. at like, 11.30am. with hadia and my dad. and i did some shopping. and i almost did an insaaanely amount of shopping too. but Daddykins was like, no, you dont NEED that. (i tried getting a pretty cheetah printed dog collar for my cat, but alas, it did not happen =( d’aww…)

I still managed more shopping than i intended to =P i mean, i just got some moolah from my uncle cuz of my brilliant O-level result, and my dad finally went and got it out of his bank account and gave it to me.

So…this is Ze, and this is my haul =D
(lydia from lizzie bennet diaries of youtube. go google it now. the best modern adaptation of a classic book i have EVERRR seen. i havent even finished it yet since the ban…oh well. im just lazy. but seriously, go check it out.)

Now, i just realized that for a Haul thingie, i should just put pictures of the tees i got….so excuse me while i go take some wonderful webcam photos with this ginormous laptop. LA LA LA…

phew, finally done! annoyingly enough someone set the camera to video mode, so i had to take the pictures over. which sucks for two reasons, one, i lost loads of time doing it, and i hate redoing stuff. and two, i took some very epic pics i was proud of =( oh well…these will simply have to do.

So heres the first shirt, a very summery, flowy, soft and pretty shirt. im thinking it’d even look cool if i wore a super tight full-sleeved beige or maybe black shirt underneath. Thatd look cool with those flowy sleeves. (cuz summers ending, and i got a new shirt, so i obviously want to wear it. and hence, the layers make it possible to wear in winter, yay! =3)

picture043

^i got this from Break Out, and i totally ADORE that store. i love the bright colors, and super peace-y and epicly gangster-ish clothes theyve got. And, needless to say, that goes wonderfully well with my very hippie and neon wardrobe ^_^

while i was snapping pics, i also took a few (as in two, duh.) shots of my room. just cuz. so yeah. heres one now, this is my super messy bookshelf. See how in the top shelf to the right, there are two (very precious) books of mine, sorta falling out? well, thats cuz underneath them (yeah, ive totally run out of space. =( im trying to get my parents to get me another bookshelf, but theyre like, theres no space in your room…ill make space for mah books, so pleeeeaase! >.< ) And that underneath book is HP and the Order of the Phoenix which is, and should be, totally shocking cuz its the harry potter book i hated the MOST as a kid. oh well. still rereading it. and that i havent everrr done either. hm =P oh, and infront of that is where i keep two stacks of jewelry boxes, but until i finish that book, and it goes back to its usual place, its staying a mess and yup, staying haphazardly like the rest of everything in my room.

picture040

 

aaaand now for the final and totally EPIC tee i got- a BATMAN ONE~! yaaaay~! finaaaallyyyyy! since im overly obsessed with batman, and am batman, its perfect ❤ especially since its neon and got sequins on it too =3 so totally me~ and obviously no one would suspect Batman to wear his own merchandise, hence my secret identity shall still be secret. Muahahahaha. All is going according to plan…(according to plaaaaaaan~! oh come on, from the Corpse Bride? the song sung by the parents? yeah. that.)

picture045 < i got this splash of neon epicness from Outfitters, by the way.

 

picture046

 

and now for the close up of the super sequin batman logo~

picture047

 

aaaand now for another random snapshot of my room- my closet! or, to be much more precise, my closet handle! But, oh, why would you talk a picture of your closet handle? Is it a cool carved griffin? Or perhaps the head of a hydra? naw, man. but it is coolio. Cuz its got a tie on it. i kid you not. see for yourself.

picture044

 

yeaaah, i know i did a super bad job tying this tie- but, in my defense, this tie is silk and soft, and super hard to tie properly cuz of it! so justified wonkyness. [i stole this particular tie from my dad, and it doesnt go with any of my own clothes, so i made my closet cool like this. Cuz ties are cool. as are bowties. (Dr.who anyone?)] But i really do need to get a neon green or pink or blue tie now….

so yeeessh, that was my haul. i know, still not as much shopping as id like to have done…next time, i shall go get a pair of adorable skinny jeans that were white with a cool block print kinda motif repeated all over it. There were two pink roses (one big, one small) and underneath the roses, i think, cuz i dont recall completely, was a yellow paisley design. so cute! plus, ive been meaning to get a pair of patterned jeans recently and white ones. so its a win win! plus they were on sale :O

as were the two shirts i got ^_^ even if im a shopaholic and i looove getting loads of clothes, i still do it economically =P so yeaaah.

thats about all. now i think i shall finally post a ramble post…but ive got nothing to ramble about at the moment (*gasp* reaaally??) so…oh wait, i know! i was rereading some older posts last night and-interrrupted by a phone call from ayesha…she just got back from an out of town debate without me =( but reasons why i didnt go in another separate post ^_^ -and it had a short random fun tidbit that i was supposed to post. an anecdote, kind of. so yeah, thats whats coming next. gosh, ive got nothing to do today =/

Peace!

Ze Origins of Mint Chuntey and the Sushi Slayer

So i was online chatting with a Korean friend and ive just basically founded the Awesome Asian Alliance/the power rangers (not trying to copyright, just saying). Hes the Sushi Slayer and im Mint Chutney ^_^ wohoo~

So now, guess what happens when two totally crazy and random and phsychopathic people form an alliance with food names? the universe implodes. nah, just kidding. But ill tell you what does happen. Vegeta and Goku join. and then with all our Awesome Asian Powers (of Randomness and Crazy) its only a matter of time until the Justice League and the Avengers ask us to join them. Mhmm. We’re just that truly epic.

(spideys got nothing on us~!)

So yeah. next time youre in trouble or in need of someone to get that pesky cat out of the tree- call the Awesome Asian Alliance! We may or may not see the need to help! xD

okaay. and fyi, litter bugs are my natural enemies >.> and ive got a partner in crime (not really, a partner in justice here) called James Baxter, another super hero, that helps me kick litterbug butt. so yeah. wohoo. he however always turns a blind eye when old ladies are being mugged. (‘she doesnt need any help, she can handle it herself. *gasp* did that guy just j-walk?! how dare he?! i shall bring him to justice!!’)

Mhmm. and as Mint Chutney (greenish in color) i shall be wearing either yellow or red. cuz im awesome. and i shall have the element of surprise that way =) so yeaaah.

Imma evilish. so dont think that ill be bringing everyone and anyone to justice.  it might be litter bugs. it might be someone whos getting on my nerves. it might be someone who just trashed/ripped a book to shreds (unless, ofcourse, the book was Twilight). it might even be someone who just didnt compliment my sunglasses. Or someone unlucky enough to have gotten on my bad side. Even celebrities are not safe!  Youve been warned,  Justin Bieber.

Yes. i am indeed evilish. even the Magic 8 ball told me so. so there, that is obviously undeniable proof for all you athiests. muahahaha. besides how im actually evilish anyways through my actions. like whateverrr…

Next time, i might even reveal my super powers. or not. the element of surprise, muahahaha. i might be able to shoot pizza slices out of my ears, or have masala-vision. you never know. and maybe you never shaaall. dun dun duuun.

now excuse me while i go create a rap/themesong and stitch together a cape. as The Mint Chutney im very busy indeed.

Peaaace~!

-The Mint Chutney
Desi to the extreme. 

ps.
wow, i think that was easily the post where i evil-luaghed the most…and ironically enough this was a post all about me being a superhero. i amaze even myself.
nope…not really xD but irony. you just gotta love it.

TimeTravel-ReWatching BeyBlade- Let it Rip!

Sooo, i sorta time traveled today. and as i try to tell you, my time traveling doesnt invovle a tardis (unfortunately =( ) however, instead, i just sorta mentally time travel whenever the heck my body wants me to. (chem mock was shitty cuz i time traveled there..)so today, as i was downloading songs on the family iphone, i started to think of other songs to download, and it struck me then. I should totally download the ORIGINAL beyblade theme song, from season 1, Lets beyblade! and so i did just that. and after i heard the song for the first time, i was totally insanely happy and yearned to watch it again- from the beginning. and so i did just that.

Beyblade logo

Now, i expected it to look something like this, especially after seeing beyblade, v-force, G-revolution, and even most of what i call season 3- metal fusion(yep, with Jinga Hagami, and much more on that later)

expectations

or this

Beyblade V Force Dublado  - Dublado - Episodio - Anime - Assistir Online

or ATLEAST this

still expectations

and imagine my initial shock when i get THIS, the true reality

bayblade season 1

i mean, i mean, just COMPARE this Max (blondie) with that Max ='( Max was and still is my totally favourite character ^_^ and i just watched the first 6 episodes todaaay, and honestly i was squealing and shouting and yelling in joy. i nearly cried at some scenes too. some major reminiscing going on =) it was amaaazinnnng.

And look, the choice honestly comes down to this= an actual, truly epic and brilliant story line/plot with Tyson and his original team with initially (as in only season 1) graphics vs. a story that was unfortunatly born crippled without a plot or a story line with some good graphics that is minusing Tysons team, and replacing it with Jinga and his babysitting bussiness (more on that later too.). its really a no brainer, right? of course im still watching season 1 beyblade and LOVE it. and i cant wait til i make it to season 2, v-force, cuz thats where all the expectation pictures are from apparently =P

But seriously, i love the original characters! Rei, Kai, Max, Tyson, Kenny, Hillary, and all the original bit beasts too, especially dizzie, course =) her endless flirting with kenny is just hilarious!

Aaaaand now im far too lost in Happy Day Dream Land to complain and rant about Metal Fusion, or the new series with Jinga, and Kyoya, and B-B-B-B-Bull, so i guess thats for next time?

hahahaha, so happily hiigh-ish right now =3 i started watching One Tree Hill yesterday, and *siiiigh of happiness*

But this isnt about One Tree Hill, this is about BeyBlade. or atleast was.

and was, cuz i m gonna go back to watching it =D (im on episode 8, where its Kai vs. Tyson in the finals of the qualifier tournament. and that makes it bronzor (no idea how to spell =P ) vs dragoon, eeps! fuuun. yep, im a sucker for old shows i loved as a kid. and if i loved it then, i SUUUUURE as hell will still love it ^_^ and i totallyyy dooo hereee ❤ )

Sooo, laterrr?

Haha

DIY PaperGem- My First Attempt

So i finally tried out the paper gem DIY. and, alright, it took double the amount of time i thought it would take to make O.o so after 10 min, i finally finished =) =P

*picture was supposed to go here…*

And as i said, the copying/printing the template, cutting and folding happen in minutes, barely.

The glueing it all together part was incredibly hard, though. thats what took forever/8 minutes.

It was impossibly hard and irritating. heres how i did and recommend you to do it=

1. glue together the mid portion first, all of it. the 1a bit.
2. glue together all of ONE of the top pointy bits, 1b.
3. glue these two pieces, 1a and 1b together completely, and with ease.
4. now, this is where it gets tricky. Without glueing 1c beforehand, use it open,            and glue the base of 1c to 1a.
5. now, try to lightly tap, poke, pinch, and push the gem in whichever places to  make sure that all parts of the gem are folded in the right places.  ive found that a bobby pin/’hair grip’/hair pin can be very helpful here. (A sewing needle could also work, but id only recommend it if you really can handle that thing, arent squimish of blood, are patient, careful with your hands and how much force youre applying. )
6. Finally, glue closed the gem by folding the slant side of the top pyramid, the pointy bit, 1c.
7. you might need to poke around at it a bit more to get the shape right.
8. Let dry completely and make sure not to squish =P

And youre DONE! Congrats =D

If all else fails, theres always tape =P you can easily put tap on the tab inside, and then use a bobby pin to flatten the tape down inside. I actually had to resort to this, as unfortunately, when i left my crystal to dry, one little tab didnt stick with the glue. So i did this little tape trick/cheat. and no one can tell i used tape *wink wink* =D im really hating having the semicolon/colon key broken -.-” grrr…

But, despite all glueing challenges, i totally LOVED the end result, and had fun making it too! it was fun, and great, and CUTE. i made mine green and i recycled some colored paper scraps i had leftover from origami making ^_^

Im a BIG origami addict. Today, i actually combined a bunch of things together to make this= a pink origami box inside a box (a little thing i have dubbed Boxception. duh.),  i put this green gem/crystal inside, and closed it all off with a pink heart paper clip =3 =*

More on the box later! I reeeaaaalllyyyy love that origami, so ill post a little walk through on how to make it later =)

Have fun Crafting~

DIY PaperGems & Crystals

As ive been very into the whole DIY thing this summer, and have done a couple projects in my free time, i thought id post links and my own instructions further adding to DIYs i found, performed, accomplished and whatever else. So i dont lose the links too, and so i can easily access all this stuff too.

So I found this amazing  blog with looaads of cute ideas and posts of DIYs called
http://www.minieco.co.uk/

and on it i found this wonderfully easy and pretty idea and instructions on how to make paper gems and crystals. Its super easy, looks super cute, and a fun way to pass the time. you could string these into a necklace, or a curtain if you have the time(which i totally have) and patience (what i lack), or put them in a glass/crystal bowl as decorations, or or… There are so many things you can use these for. You could also give them away as favors at a party for your daughters little princess tea party, or gift them to your friends. its honestly up to how creative you are.

This is one of those wonderful DIYs that you can easily pull off in 5 min or less and yet still manage to impress everyone with the outcome. Its a DIY that makes people think youre amazingly artsy, creative, and simply AWESOME for having managed to make something so impressive. Its an ideal DIY. easy to make. but still impressed everyone and makes them think you mustve put sooo much effort, time, and care into making it. Yep. my favourite kinda DIY. A Cheat DIY. =D

paper-gems

heres her original post= http://www.minieco.co.uk/paper-gems/

Now, first off, youll need to download a template which will tell you exactly in what shape you need to cut the paper to fold and glue into these adorable and uniform crystals. and you can download it here= http://www.minieco.co.uk/images/nov11/minieco-paper-gems.pdf or download it directly from this post by clicking on this= minieco-paper-gems template With the template, heres a photo to work sort of as ‘table of contents’ type thing (sorry, i have NO idea what to call it…) where each number on this picture coincides with the net design on the template. and i promise, its a whole lot easier to understand when looking at both the template and the picture… but here it iiis. basically, so you know which crystal youre making.

Template of gems table of contents

Cut out the net design. Fold along the dotted lines given in th template. Glue the little flaps in such a way as to close the entire crystal/gem. Aaaand youre done! =)

If your having a hard time copying the template, you could print the template onto your colored paper. Then cut out the net, and simply fold the folds in the opposite direction, so that the printed dotted lines are on the inside. simple.

These gems can be made even prettier (say whaat?! =O ) by maybe using printed paper, or if your a cheapskate like me(actually, none of this stuff is available where i live =/) you can paint or pen/ink floral designs, or doodles on notebook paper, or paint geometric designs or whatever by hand on paper and then use that. even newspaper could look cool =). you could also paint effects on each side of the crystal, like light is hitting it and shade the colors accordingly. you could add sequins or beads. its up to you.

You could spray paint the sides metallic silver or gold, like in the original blog.

silver spray painted paper gems crystals

You could spray paint with contrasting colors (green crystal, pink paint. purple crystal, yellow paint). You could use glitter instead of spray paint too (probably what im gonna do. oh yeah, i didnt say? i havent done this DIY yet =3 im planning on doing it today, but i got excited and wanted to post a tutorial type thing about it first. im weird  crazy, i know =P so yeaaah. Or use glitter as a design, a geometric one, or a diagnor checkered pattern would also look prettyy cool. yeah. stuff like this

close up silver spray painted gems

make your crystals/gems look gemmier and more crystalline-y than ever! =)

Hope you (and i both!) have fun making these, and i hope they come out great! this seems super fun and easy and i cant wait to try it aswell. This would be pretty fun to do at a birthday party or a hang out session, just you and your girl friends or whatever, and sit around and and make these. [Then you could joke around about whos is best/worse =P ] It could be a cute little workshop, or a stall selling these home made cuties would be good at any fund raiser. You could do loads of things with them and with making them. Just have fun with it!

Greaaat, so i hope it all works out and you have fuuun doing it!

the cool as hell snowman who brings joy and inspiration to all~

* ill probably post an update later about how mine turn out! =) look forward to that. i just dont think ill be able to take pictures, since my phones not letting me upload pictures onto my laptop recently…grumble mumble…oh well =P

DIY Custom PaperClips, Designs & Ideas

So today i did many things.

One of which was to FINALLY get Dan Brown’s Inferno in Hard-back, as my mother loves the author and was willing to pay for that. So thats GREAT.

While at SSB, i thought id also check out other books and maybe just maybe get Game of THrones book II (no idea what the name is =$ ) or just look around or maybe the Life of Pi. Unfortunately, as the book store has become eviler, they rearranged the book shelves. if they were something like this (birds eye view)=

I I I I I I
I I I I I I

before, now there something like THIS=

___ _____ _____ ______ _____ _____
___ _____ _____ ______ _____ _____ and it SUCKS. now i have no idea where the books i like are kept. and now youre wondering, ‘ok, great. so just ask those helpful guys who work there, duh.’ However, those guys are so not so helpful. they dont know where anything is kept in their own shop.

when i was assigned to read whuthering heights over the winter break for my literature class (an assignment i never did, btw) i spent a grand total of five minutes attempting to find the book. impatient as i am, i finally cracked and asked for “assistance”. It took them FIFTEEN minutes to circulate around the ENTIRE floor of the store (then it was two stories, now three. more on that LATER. funny tale, that…). all to come back to the shelf i had been sifting through. then another ten minutes to find the book. grr.

Soo yeah. i got the book and while i was at it, i was gonna get a clear paged folder in neon colors for my comics but due to surprise budget cuts as my brother got himself a new mouse (he installed an old video game that apparently requires a swivel mouse or something like that) so i had to leave them behind.

So instead i found post its, colorful thumbpins for my bulletin board, and PAPER CLIPS.

And here i am.

I remember WEEKS ago, on 9gag, i saw this cute picture to bend paper clips into heart shapes, and so i googled it, and found the pictures and used them to make a cute little pink heart paper clip that im using as a book mark now. (i love using paper clip bookmarks, their cute, colorful, jazz it up, and dont fall out easily =P )

since i had to google those pics only cuz i never saved them when i first saw them, and regretted that later, i saved them, and thought id post them here.

pink heart clips

And heres how to do it in an easy one two three step guide. well…its so easy that there IS no step three =D

How-to heart shaped paper clips intstuctns

and then, inspired, i searched for other shapes, like stars, or four leaved clovers or flowers, but couldnt find any =( when i do, they will most DEFINATELY be up here. so have no fear, i am on the hunt!

but i did find websites that sold already made fancy paper clips like leaf shaped ones (loved. very naruto =P not a big fan of that though. just find it tolerable NOW. before i used to hate it.) and speech bubbles, like in comics. those wouldve rocked. and loads of other designs too, like elephants, dogs, cats, swirly hearts, flowers, etc. just google for stuff like that.

i did however find some really cool ideas and came up with my own to design and customize a regularly shaped paper clip.

1. Like taking a jumbo paper clip and adding ribbons to one end to use as a griped reliabler bookmark or just to jazz up an assignment like so

simple bookmark paperclips

or something like this

BrillianglyBland-RibbonPaperclips

or as i found on another website, but didnt save the pic (sowwy), make a cute little bow and then loop that into position where these plain ribbons are tied, so it sticks out from the book your reader, or where ever else you decide to put it, like a card. and that particular blogger put buttons in the centre of the bows with some glue. i think DIRECTLY glueing the button, like a huge one, on the paper clip would also look cool.

or something very pre-school, or simple, with less hassle, would be to cut out two identical shapes on paper or stiffened fabric and cut out a cartoon character or design or letter or whatever and sandwhich the tip of the paper clip in between with glue.

or for the extremely lazy, or artistically challenged, or legit preschoolers as a fun little project to encourage reader (or other grades too. i just weally like kindergarten and preschool =3 ) use stickers with the same method =P

you could also add things like glitter, sequins, beads, and other gorgeously girly and artsy ideas =) even tiny little origami might work out great!

so yeaaaah. those are my little ideas and shit. gosh, this took so long to post, as the internet rebelled against this, and posting those photos was also pretty troublesome and nerve racking (esp. paired with the fluctuating helpfulness of the internet conection.. -.-” ). and as ive said, technology is not my forte =P

BUUUT yeaaaah, thats it, and great, im done WO-HOO!

freeeedooooommm

liberationnn

sleeppp…maybe. but ice cream first ❤

kay, then, laterrr!
