DC, I'm in love!!

Yes, I am in love! Couple of days ago, I went to Tyson Corner Center with Francis. While he was working at Häagen-Dazs, I went shopping by myself, all day from 2pm until 7pm :) Shopping, chocolate, good food, a good friend...what else would I ask?
So I wandered around the mall and this shop caught my eye. Urban Outfitters. I love this shop!! I want to work there someday, as 1 of their creative team maybe =D

This shop is so wonderful! With all the amazing stuff that they sell, stuff that you rarely find in other shop. Unusual. Vintage. Retro. You name it!
They have a lot of "oh-so-lovely" that "i-want-it" stuff :)
And after spending 1,5 hours in that shop, I decided to purchase this top... Eerr I don't care although it's winter!!

And here are some stuff in my other shopping bags :)

Aren't they lovely? ;) Oooppss! I guess I need to buy another bag to put my stuff in before I get back to Cedar Rapids >_<

Happy Thanks Giving!!

My dreamy pad

Aaaaawww I'm dreaming of having my own pad... Having a space for me to contemplate and for my friends to hang out =)
I want my bedroom like this...

and my work corner like this...

My friends are welcome to hang out here...

I guess I'm obsessed with white!

Oh, for some fun, I want these books to be in a shelf at my hang out place :)

Hhhhmmmmmm I think I also want this furniture

and this chandelier lamp to be there aswell...

Would you like to come over some time?

My everything - Glenn Fredly

Cruising when the sun goes down
Cross the sea
Searching for something inside of me

I would find all the lost pieces
Hardly feel deep in real
I was blinded now I see

Hey hey hey you're the one
Hey hey hey you're the one
Hey hey hey I can't live without you

Take me to your place
Where our heart belongs together
I will follow you
You're the reason that I breath

I'll come running to you
Fill me with your love forever
Promise you one thing
That I would never let you go
'Cause you are my everything

You're the one, you're my inspiration
You're the one, kiss, you're the one
You're the light that would keep me safe and warm
You're the one, kiss, you're the one

Like the sun goes down, coming from above all
To the deepest ocean and highest mountain
Deep and real deep I can see now

L'amor che move il sole e l'altre stelle

"People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.
A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master..."

"Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it."

I want .. I want .. I want ..!!

Aaaaaaaaawwwww I love these stuff. The vintage phone and giant ear bud speakers. Hopefully I will have some extra cash to spare on these lovely stuff. I'm sure my room will look fab! ;)

Crosley Jenny Phone
Based on the iconic standard Bell desk phone, first released in 1949, but upgraded here with a ton of modern features! Touch tone dialing; ringer volume control; tone/pulse switch; flash/redial button; earpiece volume control. Looks great in any room. (Ring, Ring...) Hey, it's for you!

Giant Ear Bud Speakers
So awesome. If bigger is better, then these are the best ear buds ever! A surreal sound solution, Giant Ear Buds connect to your PC, iPod or home system via standard headphone jack for stylish stereo playback.

The Cannabis Cookbook

This cookbook is in my "DC Shopping List". I'm sure it will cure the munchies while getting the munchies! ;)
It's about the joy of cooking and baking with cannabis. Featuring stimulating recipes and lush color photography, it approaches cannabis as yet another fine ingredient to be studied and savored, like a great wine, premium cigar, gourmet chocolate or single malt scotch. The Cannabis Cookbook divulges all you need to know to go to culinary heights with the magical herb being used by 25 million Americans. It includes the history of cannabis in cooking, biochemical properties and effects, the best "vineyards" and over 35 step-by-step recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, baked goods and other essentials. Brownies, Goo Balls, even Penne with Pesto! The treats presented in this book are so delicious that were sure nothing will get wasted. Well, almost nothing! Whoa! Imported. Wipe clean. * Author: Tim Pilcher; Publisher: Running Press
I'm so excited!!


...blame it to Sundari from Intimate Vignettes :) I am falling in love with Lomography and have been saving to buy DIANA+ EDELWEISS EDITION. I love this camera! It will complete my white gadget collection: white SONY VAIO laptop, white iPod, white Samsung digital camera. Hhhhmmmmmm can't wait to get this camera and wander around the town, taking random pictures!
Thank you, Sun, for introducing me to Lomography world! I love it! It helps me to forget about homesickness and be creative ;)
Much love,

DC on Friday!!

My oh my...!! I'm off to Washington DC on Friday afternoon. I'm so excited! Going to see my best friend of 10 years, Francis.
Anyways, I've been searching in the internet about Flea Markets, Thrift Stores, and Vintage Shops around his town, Fairfax, Virginia. And he's going to give me the list of places to hang out, delicious restaurants and maybe some coffee shops since we both love coffee and used to hang out at Java Nuts coffee shop all the time, back in high school. He said some time I have to wander around the town by myself, as he has to work until midnight. It's okay. Hhhhmmmmmm I can't wait!! I really do need a vacation after drowning myself into these paperworks, dealing with my low-maintenance roommates and homesickness since last July.
Oh well... At the moment, I have to finish 1 essay, 1 Computer homework, 1 Human Relations test and 1 book report. Everything has to be done before Friday because I am going to skip the classes on Monday, Tuesday, and the next Monday ;) Ssssshhhhhh don't tell anybody xP
Have a good night you all x0x0

Red Reading Glasses

My eyes are f*cked up and I hate it. My minus now is -1 and it's getting more and more and more as I spend most of my time in front of the computer or reading books. I'm not a nerd, I just love books and love being on the net, talking to my family and friends back home, writing blogs or just browsing.
After Thanks Giving, I'm going to purchase this fancy red reading glasses...

As you wished, I am standing up and trying to carry on again. I'm wishing all the best for you. May the Angels guard you and God bless you!
Much love,
