Wednesday blues

Ok literally I was suppose to post something on Monday but I got caught up in my so-called 'presentation report/slide' which we ended up not doing anyway cause no one remembers to do it...phew, lucky for me. Beside it was the holidays and I was busy doing nothing and stuffing my face off with food...ahahaha ain't I just so lucky?

So anywhoo, I have been watching some of my YouTube videos and this one girl (I forgot her name but she's so cute) was talking about this website she found (or something) that sells clothes (ok it is in USD..sorry :( ). And they are pretty affordable!! There was this sweater dress for $10! but it was out of stock already :(. I want, and they are gorgeous. So go check it out. :) Here. I am so lazy to post something long...I want to go to bed. Night!

Raya special: RAYA! Eid-Fitr!

Today's Monday's pick Raya special is all about food and food! :P ahaha...ok I am late by 3 days but who's counting right? (Right Al?) Anywhoo...I don't know what is so special about raya...eid...except the extraordinary delicious mouth watering food that people serve us for FREE at their humble homes and you can sit there and stuff your face till you can't eat anymore...so what? But of course you don't do that...stuff yourself till you can't eat anymore...just saying. You can do that. And it might seem rude ya know.

Anyway, I don't know what to pick for raya...I think I am out of raya ideas...but I will be back next Monday (hopefully :P) so...stay safe for raya people! (Al I know you wanted something extravagant but I can't think of anything...ahaha sorry!)

Selamat Hari Raya

Akira's Friday: O2 by Orange Range

Hai Minna-san, Konichi ha! Today's pick is a song called O2 by Orange Range. This song is the Opening Theme for Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 (Kodo Giasu: Hangyaku no Rurushu R2) and has always been my alarm ringtone for sahur. I find this video rather interesting. I first listen to this when I was watching Code Geass so when I found the video, it awed me. I was thinking that the video would be something modern which will suit the cool, awesome tune of the song. Somehow, it kinda make me feel like the song doesn't actually match the video. But since I'm an "addict" to that era, it doesn't really matter now. Hahaha... and I Love this song. Honestly, I prefer it to be collaborated with Code Geass opening video. Nonetheless, it's a good tune to be worked up on a Friday morning.

O2 by Orange Range

Orange Range is a band originated from Okinawa and I'll put this as easy as possible, their songs are Awesome. O2 single was released in May 2008 and was featured in Orange Range's 5th Album, Panic Fancy and as I've mentioned earlier, it's the OP for Code Geass R2.

Here's from me this week. Saa, kitte kudasai.

'Belated' Monday's pick: Bangles

OMG! I so totally forgot about Monday's pick since I have started my short course, and the wireless connection is so sucky that I really am about to explode. Thankfully I have my long list of games I could play. *pheeew* I could die and do nothing in the very cold temperature controlled room (not, it's damn cold and if the ac are not on it's damn hot).

So anywhoo, my belated Monday's pick would have to be bangles. I am so (kinda) into it now. I mean eons years ago, I am more of the silver/gold bracelet kinda girl you know. Until last January both of my silver bracelets snapped while CLK was here, so I didn't have the time to replaced it. Yeah I know should've asked CLK to replaced them for me :P but there are seriously no great looking silver bracelet I have come upon.

So then I have decided to move onto bangles. :) And I freakin' loving them! Ok, I don't have a lot of them but I am stocking up (for the lost time). Presently I have some beaded ones (from SARAWAK! HELL YEAH!), and some wooden ones (from Sarawak too!!), some leathery-type ones, errr, what else? I think I have some like stainless steel ones too, and a few others I don't remember. Don't you guys just love accessories?? Especially bangles (and earrings and rings and anklets and...well that's for another day :D ). I guess i'm just an accessories girl :). So this week's pick would have to be BANGLES!!!

Monday's pick: Jeggings or leggings

My pick for this week is: Jeggings :D altho leggings would be a good one to, so either way jeggings/leggings.

Apparently, I think I have been using leggings (or maybe those really stretchy, skinny, spandex pants) a long time ago. Yeah they use to be my favorites, and now they are back? As for the question mark, I'm sure they are the same thing but not. You know what I mean, right? Anyway...I have not used the jeggings/leggings a lot lately cause of the weather (like freakin' humid and hot) and I don't think it is really suitable for tropical weather but I think it would look good at night. Ok, I'm just that crazy/creative/daring to wear them but I see a lot of the girls wear them and I envy them! I think it is because they have really skinny legs (ok, sometimes they look like sticks. What! They do.)

But anywhoo, I bought a jeggings a couple of weeks ago without knowing that they are jeggings. It is kinda cool I think cause they look like skinny jeans but they're not. Geddit? Oh, jeggings are jean-leggings or denim leggings, like so...cute eh?

*taken from here

Jeggings are the new fashion trend hitting the retail sector.   These leggings originated in Japan where they became an overnight sensation.  These revolutionary leggings are a cross between skinny jeans and leggings and are expected to be the fashion sensation of 2009 in the UK.  It is the fusion of jeans and leggings that has derived the new name for this product i.e. Jeggings. **courtesy of http://www.jeggings.co.uk/

Apparently I want some!!! I have not found these here (except a dark color blue and black jeggings) but if they have some greys and indigo I'd love to get my hands on one. :) Cool and weird eh? They have a variety at Topshop, you should check it out. :)
