Tunesday #3

Okay, here is one of my favorite bands: Vampire Weekend.  I love the African drums and vibes they have in their songs!!
This song gets stuck in my head so so so easily.  And the music video is HILARIOUS.

Chopstix


My adventure with chopsticks...

I've always failed at using chopsticks.  And I am Chinese.  Here is my attempt at using them at around age 0-8:




Notice the chopsticks' awkward criss-crossing position.  My pointer finger and thumb would control the top chopstick, and push it up and down while still in the criss-cross relationship with the other stick, which is held stable with the sides of the middle finger. 

And I couldn't pick up fishballs with chopsticks, so I speared them in the ball itself, like marshmallows on a stick.


*Note:  I still do this

And lastly, here is my current way of using chopsticks.  While on my trip to Hong Kong, my aunt noticed my poor technique, tried to correct it, and commanded me to pick up dried beans, which is a lot harder than you think.



The criss-cross position is gone, and the bottom chopstick is held steady with the middle finger, which is in between the two sticks.  My pointer finger and thumb hold the top chopstick and directs it where to go.

I still struggle with chopsticks though!  I think I am still doing it wrong...

Xin Nian Kuai Le!!!

AAAAHHHH!  Happy Chinese New Year!  :) Yay for year of the dragon (my dad and my older sis are dragons!).
Can't wait to eat huo guo (hot pot) tonight!  It's not a conventional new year's dinner, but yummy nonetheless!

Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2012 - Mustard Bows

Here's some pics of Burberry Prorsum's Pre-Fall show... I see a lot of bows, navy, mustard, and luxe fabrics!   I can't help but be reminded of the '40s...
I bet you can find cheaper alternatives at Forever 21 or H&M... Forever 21 would probably have something similar to the cute dog sweater and bow belts!   And I've seen a lot of faux fur stoles at H&M.  :)

In my Head...

  • I like Finals week... no homework, get to leave early, sometimes sleep in late.  :)
  • I don't like geese.  They poop too much.  While I was at work, I kept stepping into goose shit.  Now, I smell like poopy grass.  I'm thinking bottling it up and calling it "Eau de Geese Crap" and putting it in a really classy bottle.
  • Brownies are my life.
  • I should probably work on my essay outline...

My. Baby.

Say hello to my new baby: this pair of Steve Madden Madee flats in Leopard.


SO EXCITED TO WEAR THESE!!!!  I feel like they'll add a punch to any outift.  Rawr.
Maybe pair it with a basic black blazer, a white t-shirt, and some electric blue jeans.  :)
