Angelo Sosa Book Signing at Korin

Last week I went with Sandy to Angelo Sosa’s Book Signing at Korin! It was a nice get together where you can meet the celebrity chef Angelo Sosa and have a taste of his restaurant’s delicious food!

Menu and Event List

This was the menu and events for the night. Although they pushed back his speech because he wanted to wait for more people to come. But it backfired because by then more people left ^^”

Tuna Pastrami Tartar

Tuna Pastrami Tartar

All the food were catered by Angelo Sosa’s restaurant, Social Eatz, which I reviewed here. However all the food that day were ones I haven’t tried, so I was excited. The Tuna Pastrami Tartar pictured above was sooooo delicious! I had two of those. I like the herbs they used in it.

Close up.

It had mustard and a small piece of crunchy bread.

Bulogogi Sliders

These were really good too! I loved the pickled vegetables. Sandy thought I was crazy because when they had a lid over it and I was looking from above I thought it looked a bit like cupcakes haha. Well it’s round like cupcakes, so I’m not that crazy… am I? XD

Chilled Edamame Soup Shooters

I don’t usually drink soup chilled, but this was quite good and interesting. It also looked very alien-ish against the black serving trays haha.

I also tried the BBQ pork buns, tofu sliders, and Fish Cha Ca La Vong Sandwiches. The Fish Ca Ca La Vong sandwiches somewhat resembled Viet Sandwiches, and it was sweet so I liked the taste of it. But one friend didn’t, haha. The BBQ pork buns however was a miss for me, not enough flavor and a bit too fatty. The tofu sliders had a similar taste to the Bulogoi burger since it had pickled vegetables as well, but it tasted much better served hot than cold. They didn’t have fries since it would’ve been too soggy by the time it reached the showroom. However, that was one of my favorite dish at Social Eatz, so I’ll probably be dragging a friend with me to eat there just for the fries haha.

Sandy and me~

Of course, it’s the mandatory selca pic of one of my bestie and me~ :3 First time that I saw her in heels! I loved it too, I want a pair myself. Should’ve took a picture of it to share with you guys 😦 Best part was she said she bought it on sale from payless, but it did not look like it! Which is great 😀

Speech time!

He finally got up to make his speech, and Saori-san, the owner of Korin, also joined in.

Angelo Sosa and me~

My sister helped me ask to take a photo with him. Sandy and Wendy helped me take some “normal” photos, but as you guys all know, I LOVEEE selcas!! So I asked if I can take one myself, and he started cracking up so much. We were both laughing uncontrollably so it took awhile until we calmed down and got this shot with him. Isn’t he so cute? ;3

Best part was when he said I looked like a princess. Kyaaaaaaaaaaaah haha

OOTD & FOTD

My OOTD and FOTD. Starting to wear less frilly stuff, but I like it a lot! And my bra kept peeking out… oh well, it’s my new style ;D LOL I think if it was me a few years back I would be tugging on my dress the whole time to cover up, but after being in intimate apparel it doesn’t faze me anymore. I don’t know if this is a good or bad thing… LOL

Sakura Macaron!

Extra photo~ Before the event, I went to Takahachi Bakery to hang out. My sister bought me a Sakura Macaron before but I didn’t get to take a photo before I ate it, so I bought one again just to camerawhore it hehehe jp, it’s really good so it’s worth it. If you’re around the area, definitely check it out! ^_^

By the way, let me know if you have instagram! Mine is judyhimechan. I’m so addicated to that app!

Sakura Matsuri 2012

the last bit of sakura

A late post (was busy with school work >__<“) on Sakura Matusri 2012. Most of the sakura were gone by the time of the matsuri (good thing Sandy and I went to do our yukata photoshoot earlier!) but we managed to find some so I took a photo of the beautiful blossoms.

Soompi Ulzzang Contest Round 2!

So many things has happened since my last post here! I’ve been so caught up with school work >__<” A happy update on my specialization selection, I got into intimate apparel block! Which was possible after staying up all night in my school’s computer lab with dozens of other 5th semester students, waiting impatiently for 7AM to click on the button. So glad that I did stay up for it, I can’t wait for next semester to come already! ♥

Secondly, I’ve entered in Soompi’s 2011 Ulzzang contest. Surprisingly (since they said it’s mostly based on how many friends you have on Soompi, and I don’t have any on there XD) I made it to the second round! Here is my submission, and I would really appreciate it if you can vote for me! The link is here http://www.soompi.com/ulzzang/vote/girls/2 My username is judyjudychan . Thank you so much ♥ I’m so worried, there is so man pretty girls in it > u <”

my contest entry~

My outfit from an event, trying a different style.

Make up I did for the photoshoot

That day was the day I had a photoshoot, which was a lot of fun, and I’m hoping to have more 😀 The only downside was the make up artist never showed up, so I ran home to do my make up and went back, which was fine since I prefer to use my own make up XD

I want to share a song that I am currently addicted to. The lyrics are so deep and meaningful, and I can really relate to it during parts of my past relationship (not all, as he was sweet and a good listener other times).

I reallyyyy want that jacket and white fluffly sweater the actress in the MV is wearing, so if anyone sees it, please let me know! XD

I’ll update with more pictures of my very eventful November tomorrow 🙂

NYFW 2011 Sept 15~

Being a fashion design student, I’ve always wanted to attend NYFW, but never got the chance to since I wasn’t sure how to get in! haha~ > u <” Luckily, I started an internship this semester and they gave me a ticket to go to one of the events. It was really exciting to enter the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week building for the first time! However, the lobby was smaller than I thought~~ But it did have a lot of cool booths, such as the Tresemme Salon, Maybelline studio and of course a Mercedes-Benz display (I love shiny cars~ > u <“!).

I was nervous too since I didn’t know where to go, and a man stopped me to take a picture of me (and countless of other people who took it without asking me >”<) and chatted with me, and then a lady from a shoe blog took a picture of my shoes XD

Finally I entered the event, and I was a bit nervous as I wasn’t sure what kind of event it was supposed to be since my internship never told me XD i realized sure enough when I saw tall tables without seats and lots of drinks – a meet and greet event. Fortunately for me, a lady talked to me first and we stuck to each other the whole night as we chatted with all different kinds of people. A guy at the Daily newspaper even asked if I was a model for the type of clothes I wore~ I wish D: I don’t know where to find modeling opportunities~

It was a lot of fun and interesting experience~ I’m so glad my professor told me to go since I was unsure of attending~ and very grateful that one of my close friends Sarah told me to dress as I usually do, because it made a good topic starter for many people. A lot of people came up to talk or take a picture of me because of what I wore > u <”

Here’s what I wore (everything was from Japan, except my headband and necklace was Betsey Johnson)~

I really love this dress since my dad gave it to me as a present and my favorite model, Yui, wore it when she went to a Taiwan event~ so double reasons :3 And of course, my make up was inspired by her, and here are shots of it;

I’m excited for next year’s NYFW! I’ll try to find a way to go again hehe~ :3

Japanese Fashion Show

Last last week I attended this fashion show at my school~~~ They had a lot of lovely cosplays, however there was only about i think 16 different ones, not much variety >__<” And it was pretty short, which was the downside of it~ However! The interesting part of the show was that they had two makeup segements, one where the Japanese Makeup artist, Akiko, (who flew in from Japan~!!) did a Lolita and a Mana makeup on two different girls, it was really pretty~ And then her and her assistants came back out to do a makeup show, where in a few minutes they transformed three girls into looking like those broken Japanese dolls. It was really cool and unique makeup! Although I’m not really into cosplay or lolita anymore, it was still an interesting show to attend~~ They also mentioned gyaru a bit, so i was happy haha.

I spotted a Liz Lisa  I think it was the one that came out a year before the one I got last year~~

some of the models of the show~

they were really pretty! and tall too~ O w O”

He had a very beautiful and very detailed cosplay from some Visual Kei band~
And you see the large fiberwig in the back? They were giving out free fiberwig mascaras~ I’m really thankful for that, mine was running out! haha~

here is the lovely Akiko-san and me~~ Sorry for the lack of makeup! I had school early in the morning so didn’t have time to put it on~~ >”<!! But her makeup was really nice and her hair! Omg so cute~ it has that two tone look with lighter hair on the bottom~ I loved her outfit as well~ You can’t really see it here, but it had this really long chiffon skirt~she and her assistant had to keep pulling it up to keep it from getting stepped on > u <”
