Mini Block Dragonite

DSCF0007

I found this mini Dragonite at Mr Pen. I think it may be by the same makers as the mini 7-Eleven I built. It’s very similar in quality to the official nanoblock Eevee that is also in my collection.

The blocks are small and the same size as all the other micro-sets I own. There are plenty of extra pieces in case one got lost.

What I found slightly confusing with this particular set of instructions was that only the current steps blocks were coloured, so you couldn’t really compare it to the layer below. This one was a bit delicate and I broke the wing a couple of times while trying to build it.

Rawr. Look at how adorable he is when built! I was surprised the wings didn’t tip him backwards due to weight.

I guess his giant chibi head helps! I hope next time I visit the store they have Pikachu.

Improvising


What do you do when you look in the fridge and the ingredients you thought were there aren’t? You improvise!

The other day I started searing a hamburger only to realize I didn’t have any buns so I made it open face on lettuce, avocado, caramel onion and more! Yum 

Dressing Up Running Shoes

michaelkors

I love wearing running shoes and sneakers, mostly because I have wide feet and they are some of the only shoes that are not pointy at the toes. I usually wear Sketchers because they are comfortable but their bright colours make them slightly obnoxious for work.

Then I saw these beautiful Michael Kors Allie leather sneakers. The exterior is leather and there are tiny silver accents. They make a runner look so upscale and are comfortable too! Now I can be stylish and comfy.

Woofstock 2016

Every year our family attends Woofstock together. It returned to May, and was livelier than ever.

Teddy hung out with my friend’s Instagram famous Pom Pom Chewy! They instantly enjoyed each other’s company.

Finally, we signed up for the VIP lounge in time and Teddy enjoyed a variety of swag and dog chairs:

My sister and I take this photo every year and I must say we never seem to grow up!

We also caught part of the beautiful dog show:

Here are some more random photos of dogs:

These two dogs were doing some jumping tricks.

Teddy enjoyed his Woofstock and making new friends.

And we came home with a giant haul!

Sushi Couture

DSCF0010

My friend and I went on a Tuesday night to Sushi Couture in the Annex. I had dined at all the surrounding Japanese restaurants but had not come in here because I heard the prices were a little high in comparison. While this is true, the quality of the sushi here is much higher. For instance, you can’t order a fish carpaccio in a citrus glaze at New Generation. This was a delicately prepared item.

The sashimi here is what shows the restaurants quality. Everything is fresh. Look at that red tuna belly! It did not taste frozen. The octopus and the salmon were also delicious. Just eating sashimi can be quiet heavy on the wallet though.

The tempura was batter well and came with a variety of vegetables: okra (personally not a fan), green beans, cucumbers, sweet potato, broccoli.

While the food was awesome (albeit a bit pricey), I found the shortfall here was the service. It took us over 30 minutes to receive the first dish, with no real explanation as to why it was taking so long. It wasn’t a particularly busy night. I’ll admit that I had somewhere to be but we went to the restaurant an hour and a half before we needed to be anywhere else!

Show Hopping

Obviously I can't get enough (literally) of this @puptheband album #vinyl #ilovevinyl #vinylcollection

A post shared by Tiana Feng (@tianafeng) on

Somehow started from no shows, to going to two shows tonight. Life happens unexpectedly. I’m super excited for PUP’s release show, so much that I somehow ended up with two records.

See you on the other side!

Beware of Dog

How could you be scared of this adorable face? Teddy is trying to get me to open the door.

Magic Mouse 2

DSCF9961

To edit photos more efficiently and prevent myself from using the touchpad all the time, I bought myself the Apple Magic Mouse!

DSCF9965

I love it because it’s super simple and cordless. All I had to do to set it up was plug it in for like less than 30 seconds. The battery lasts super long. (It has only lost 2% since I first bought it on Saturday).

The best feature of it is the gestures. I can swipe between pages and windows and instead of a wheel swipe up and down to scroll. There are also plenty of third party programs to customize things further.

It’s weird but the one thing I’m not totally used to is making mouse clicking noises again! I never clicked on my trackpad. I think I can fix that with a third party tool though so I will keep you updated on which one I choose.

Spring Flowers

DSCF9967

The weather has been so beautiful this weekend and I spent as much as I could outside soaking in the sun. Here are some random photos of flowers I took with my Fuji. I take photos of those hearts in the garden at my parent’s every once a year but I can never resist how beautiful they are!

Teddy Hangs

It’s a long weekend here in Toronto so I’m spending it back home with my family and of course Teddy! I miss him so much when I’m downtown. Just look at that fluffball.

His giant wet nose.

Chilling in his dog house that we built him when he was a baby.
