Goodbye my friend and adversary;

I rarely listen to music. But sometimes a song appeals to me that much that I keep listening to it for weeks without any idea why. The song clings to me while I keep wondering about how it's meant. As soon as I give up about figuring it out and forget about it a situation appears where the song fits like a fist on an eye, and suddenly it's making sense. Then I wonder if everything happened just because of the song -- if songs can summon something because you keep singing them like prayers.

However, yesterday I made some not so perfect looking but very perfect tasting Kimbab for the worst trip of my life no. 62~ With egg, cucumber and carrot.

Kimbab
I made them with my very own paws.

you're my river running high;

Pastry

Eating greek puff pastries filled with cheese while watching Big Love O: Also watched the Red Riding Hood movie in the cinema yesterday, for which I finally wore my green dress after having it in my closet for years... The movie was okay, nicely done but a bit dull / flat at times... Wish they would have styled everything more "folkloric" (like, north european) instead of fantasy-roleplay-ish. I want to have a house like Valerie's grandmother though! And I like the music they used (they had a Fever Ray track in there I think)...

Green Moss


dark boom honey;

Bought a new compact powder because my old one broke (it wasn't even half-empty, what a waste) so I couldn't carry it with me anymore without having the powder smudging my bag...
Had a coupon (which I had and never used for uhm, three years...) for Douglas so I could buy the chanel powder for just half the price. :D
I've been using the compact powder from La Roche Posay for a long time now and I was pretty satisfied with it, but this Chanel one is just plain perfect. Really, I wish I did buy this earlier instead of being so cheapskate. All this years I could have felt so damn confident with having nearly porcelain skin just by using this silly powder, what a waste of lifetime *exaggerate*

Chanel Compact Powder

 I also like how this comes with a velvet sleeve so it'll stay pretty.

Chanel Compact Powder
Left: La Roche Posay Unifiance (02 Beige Opale)
Right: Chanel Poudre Universelle Compacte (30 Naturel)

The La Roche Posay one looks quite violated although I just kept it in my bag. But something that I like about it more is that it has a separate tray for the powder puff, underneath the powder tier... it's more convenient compared to the Chanel one where the puff just sits upon the powder so you have to keep a plastic sheet between them all the time, how annoying...

La Roche Posay is just half the price of this but it's also just half as good, if even. It's a lot better than the drugstore products I've tried in Germany but still, I wouldn't want to live without the Chanel one anymore. D:
