Me and my folks celebrated Father’s Day (well, pre-Father’s Day to be exact) today at the Golden Century Seafood Chinese Restaurant. Best dim sum in Perth! Everything was very delicious :)
I had dinner at Aisuru Sushi last Thursday night (thanks to a recommendation by a friend and the reviews littered over the internet by Perth foodies). Lemme say that it was worth the experience- I love how unique their sushi is (cool names and flavours yeahhhh). It’s a little costly but their service, the atmosphere, and the food (obviously) made up for it. Will go back for sure.
I was in The Digital War (a Digimon roleplay group on dA because DIGIMON WAS MY ULTIMATE CHILDHOOD OMG and I had to participate in it when it first opened) not too long ago and this was my character, Marijke (with a profile revamp because the other app looked a little bland). Needless to say, it was cool to be roleplaying again (and drawing again for that matter) but interest waned, sadly. I still, and will forever, love Digimon though.
Jumbo Wagashi at the Pavilion (KL, Malaysia). This shop is somewhere in the middle of the new (I think?) thing called “Tokyo Street” (on the top floor of the Pavilion Shopping Complex) where stalls are set out like a mini Japanese market (think, wooden panels, bamboo etc). Anyway, the wagashi (I’m not really sure what it’s called exactly; it’s like a cross between dorayaki and cake) is nice. Not too sweet and just enough to satisfy the taste buds :) (loved the chocolate one!).
BOOKS acquired for 2012:
 “Femina and Fauna” artbook by Camilla d’Errico (Camilla’s artwork is very inspiring; she’s one of my heroes in terms of self-taught artists and “making-a-name-for-herself-doing-what-she-does-best” (I want to be like that some day too ^_^). But the artbook’s too short :( That, and there was very little commentary; I would’ve loved to read about the process behind her work, problems she faced, advice to aspiring artists…oh well).
 “The Art of Miyazaki’s Spirited Away” from Viz Media (Beautiful stills, sketches, commentary…but I didn’t think the last bit (transcript of the movie) was necessary. Nevertheless, it’s interesting to see how Studio Ghibli developed the film. If you want an even better idea, it’s worth buying the DVD with special features; there’s a short documentary on the film’s development).
 “Avatar: The Last Airbender. The Art of the Animated Series” by Bryke (I have to admit, out of the three artbooks, this one was the best and totally worth buying. It had EVERYTHING that I wanted to see in an artbook. EVERYTHING. And this isn’t because A:TLA is one of my favourite series lol).
 The first 1-3 volumes of the “Tiger’s Curse” saga by Colleen Houck (ahhh, I’m waiting for Destiny to come out…September is taking way too long :( Want romantic action? Hot shoujo-esque Indian/Chinese men? It’s all here~).
 “The Hunger Games” trilogy by Suzanne Collins (fast-paced action and lots of violence o_o To this day, I still wonder why this is classified as a children’s book…have they changed it? Also, I have yet to see the movie, but I’ve heard it’s good!).
