Valentine's Day

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day with their loved one!

My boyfriend picked me up for dinner after he got off work. He surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of roses=) I know roses are such a waste of money, but c'mon, who doesn't like receiving roses? Especially on Valentine's Day.

The traffic on our way downtown was terrible, i think it was because it was Valentine's Day because there weren't any accidents that we could see. It took us nearly an hour to get to the restaurant.

He took me to a nice little restaurant called Lucien, it is supposedly a very popular restaurant in Toronto. Their menu is small, but very specialized. They are most popular for their slow cooked pork tongue. I know, sounds gross right? But seriously, if you don't know what it is, the taste is quite interesting.

some bread for starters
Oishi Men Ramen Soup
Slow cooked pork tongue 
My black Angus ribeye and bone marrow
his "choucroute garni" (uhh basically pork sausage and pork terrines) 
There were a lot of couples at the restaurant. One thing i don't like about these type of restaurants is that you never really get a private table, all their tables are put so closely together, it get's a bit awkward with your neighbors. As in you can't really speak loudly, and the starring when they hear something or see something or when we're eating.

After dinner, we drove back uptown and just sat at the closest McDonald's for some ice cream sundaes to end the night. It's the simple things that really matter and the most joyful. There was a couple in front of us that kept starring as we exchanged gifts and there was a boy holding a bouquet of roses by the door waiting for his girlfriend. It was so sweet. It's really nice to have some time to relax and just enjoy the company of your loved one. I wish we both weren't so busy to have more of these simple days.

Sorry, my face still looks sickly

Wisdom teeth extraction

I got all my wisdom teeth removed a few days ago, and now i'm on my one week sick leave. My boyfriend went with me on that day and i was knocked out because i'm very scared of dentists and i'll just keep shaking.
Worst part for me was when they were trying to find my veins to poke the IV through, they couldn't so they kept switching hands and by the time they actually find a vein, my hands were bruised and in pain.I really don't remember anything from that day because afterwards i was very out of it.

Now i am going through puffy cheeks, nausea, and congee diet until i can continue with regular activities again. I didn't know it will be this bad, especially since i can't really keep any food down and i'm always drowsy and sick feeling.

So glad it's over with though, Dentists are the scariest!

In the meantime, some of you already know that i am in the process of moving homes, so I've been doing a lot of packing recently. I absolutely hate packing, i have come to realize what a hoarder i have been and it's so heart breaking to get rid of so much stuff that i have accumulated through the years, be it figures, plush, clothes that i haven't worn before, posters...everything! And it's going to be even worse when i have to unpack them. I am moving from a house to a condo, so you can imagine how much i actually have to get rid of. 

Went to Ikea, and bought a new bed, computer desk, chairs, dressers and makeup table for my new room. So much to buy, so much i want, but not enough space!

Donated a lot of toys and clothing to the salvation army as well

Review- Circle Lens- Barbie King Size Circle Pink

Whooops, sorry guys, this post has been in my draft for the longest time and i kept forgetting to post it. Better late than never right?

These pink circle lens were purchased from Pinkyparadise, called Barbie Kind Size Circle Pink (link here) they are my first pair of pink colored contacts that i ever tried, and after watching and reading some reviews, i really wanted to try them. Unfortunately, these aren't as vibrant as i'd like them to be, most people i come in contact with couldn't even tell that they were pink colored. They described it as a grayish brownish color when seen from afar, and can only then realize it's pink when they are up close and really look at the color.


Though they aren't as vibrant (maybe because my eyes are really dark), they are very comfy to wear. I have worn them for 12 hours and it only started to get a bit dry and irritated on the 11th hour. They are for sure unnatural looking and really give your eyes enlarging effects.

Comfort: 8.5/10
Color/Vibrancy: 6/10
Enlargements: 8/10
Size: 14.5mm
