Lolita: Life In Pink

Last weekend Michelle, a friend of Shan’s, came back to Vancouver from Texas. We went to the Richmond nightmarket (I went for the 3rd time~) and it was such a fun time. Because I brought my fluffy dog, Jacky, it was like we were celebrities! Everywhere we walked, heads turned and there were many comments like “So fluffy!” “So cute!” and “你的狗很漂亮!”

A girl even took a photo of my dog, and everyone from kids to adults wanted to pet him. Vancouver is such a friendly place. (⌒▽⌒)☆ It was remarkable how much attention he received, but he was nervous and a bit scared of all the loud noises and people.

We bought food and walked around, and I even saw my supervisors at the Fido booth. I stood around inside and sold a single iPhone case before heading off again with Michelle and Shan~

Another fun even that happened recently took place at home: my sister Kelsey, my brother Jenson, Shan and I dug out the good ol’ Monopoly board game and played it after dinner! It was really fun and unexpected playing this classic game again. Shan and I ended up losing so badly, haha! I was mooching off Kelsey and Shan’s sympathies to survive, but in the end my brother and sister were just too strong. I hope we can play a game together again soon, as a family.

Despite the fact that I said I would spend less in June, this month seems to be the month of my most heavy spending. I bought some lolita items, as well as some non-lolita items. Anyway, here are some recent buys:

Halloween Alice Print JSK (Pink)

BTSSB “Trick or Treat” JSK in pink. There’s nothing very Halloween-ish about this dress at all! It’s an older print, but when I bought it the seller had the tag still on. There’s no shirring, so I’m wondering if I should bring it to get tailored. A custom fit wouldn’t be too bad, if I like the dress enough!

Angelic Pretty Pink + White Diamond/Heart Lace Ribbon Socks

Brand new, these socks from AP are quite thick! They’re really cute and I love the lace detailing near the top. (❁´◡`❁)*✲゚*

Dream V – Heart Heels (Pink)

I’m a bit unpleased that I bought a size ‘M’ in my Dream V heels. My feet are exactly 22.5CM, so I should technically be in an ‘S’ because small is 22CM-22.5, and medium starts at 23cm I believe. But they fit *okay*, just not as snug as I’d hoped. Oh well~ they’re still gorgeous. And they’re comfortable! I couldn’t believe how plush they feel, judging by the look I wasn’t expecting that.

BTSSB Heart Pouchette

This bag is really small. ;_; I wish it were bigger, but it’s only large enough to hold a phone and maybe a lipstick/key holder. I would maybe only use it when I have to walk my dog/run errands and want to free my hands up. It’s real cute though~ love this brand.

I have a lot of things on my wish list, mostly cute socks from AP and AP’s many other beautiful accessories. I don’t know! These are some of the items I couldn’t help adding to my collection.

!! Did you know American Apparel sells petticoats?! I had no idea until I stepped inside to buy some tights and saw this puffy baby hanging on the rack:

Retails for CAD~$75,, pretty pricey!

I almost want to buy it just to try it out, ehe.

I don’t know why I suddenly feel like expanding my closet.. (・_・ヾ I definitely need to save up more. Everyone says so!!!



Night Of Fancy

Moii Cafe’s grand opening took place last night. I didn’t take many photos, but a large group of people were able to make it to celebrate the opening of the cafe’s second location. It was a social event with champagne, crepes, and a table spread with food. As a semi-formal event, everyone wore nice dresses with trendy high-heels! I was perhaps the most ambitious, decked in 5″ nude pumps.

I was very lucky some friends could also make it, as I am not close with the owner’s group of friends. It was very nice to have Selina, Vivian and Jennifer drop by the party! They all brought their boyfriends, of course. I wouldn’t expect such darlings to be single after all!

Lovely ladies at the opening party~

Afterwards, we headed to the new nightmarket near River Rock Casino. Jennifer and her boyfriend were very gracious! It was a treat to spend time with them

The new nightmarket has free parking, but each person has to pay $1CAD to enter the premises.

We met up with Selina and Vivian, and we all shared our food. BBQ skewers, takoyaki, egg puff waffle (雞蛋仔) and a very delicious pork belly skewer! I really like the pork skewer, but I also like this expensive stand that sells mini quail egg skewers wrapped in bacon! Nightmarket is truly a great place for food and walking around. The stands weren’t as interesting as the “old” nightmarket, though.

A disappointing note is that the “hurricane potato” skewers I am so fond of did not taste as good as previously. The popular stall ran out of cheddar! I had to settle with butter. Furthermore, the potatoes were soggy and not crispy at all. Definitely a let-down for my would-be favourite food stall.

Close to midnight, Shan came to pick me up (having stayed at the party longer than I had) and I bid farewell to my friends.

Jacky (my dog) even got something out of it: Vivian gave him some organic chicken treats from her dog! Lucky boy!


It was a fun night and I really look forward to my next day off!
