Location : noticing my eye-balls and eye-bags… they feel heavy, tired and in need of some care *pity-sob*. Still in Kowloon, HKSAR.
Japanese Tea Ceremony
From an article entitled “The Tea Ceremony” regarding various significant, cultural tea ceremonies from around the world. Located in a website called ‘To Tea or Not to Tea’ (work-in-progress).
Previously there was a programme called “Cool Japan” and that particular episode was talking about souvenirs, or 土 产, which means ‘local produce’ and is pronounced as ‘tu2 chan3’ in mainland contemporary Chinese Mandarin or some crazy pronunciation if you’re Japanese. Both vastly different pronunciations from two different countries, but same writing and meaning.
Cushy or what?!
Anyway, on that “Cool Japan” episode they were making hyper-realistic, miniature plastic sushi as accessories e.g. key-chains. All the plastic ‘ingredients’ were made with such finesse and realism – it truly seemed as if they were making real food, but yummier! It ended up looking like someone’s last supper before the end of the world… spookily brilliant.
Contemplating : acne. One word. Countless problems.
Plans for the day : Collect some Nissin cup noodles: bagsie the “Five Spice Beef” flavour and “XO-sauce Seafood” flavour!

One low-light and one high-light :
(1) Dad went over-night in hospital, but apparently it’s just a check-up.
(2) Mum is using her mobile phone’s text-messaging service… whoopie, now she’s learning.

The randomly gratuitous section:
My second set of gel nails. This time I upgraded to getting the white sculptural flowers, but OMG, did the removal of the last set of nails cause more than a few twinges. She used pliers to remove the nails and then some kind of sanding tool to remove the bumps – my nail bed was on fire. Phew. Anyway, here goes another couple of weeks with some very unnatural nails.
