icon:h_heart02 Purikura taken 1 year ago when we got registered officially as Married icon:h_heart02

Can’t believe 1 whole year has passed by so fast that we are now through our 1st Anniversary on the 31 October 2009 icon:h_heart08 – 1 year old Bond 

icon:w_2_kumo Still feel like it was just yesterday that we’ve just got married..icon:w_2_kumo 

icon:w_2_kaminari icon:o_dokuro And yeah, we registered on the day of Trick or Treat icon:h_hatena04 I’d love treat icon:mark3_sign04 icon:o_dokuro icon:w_2_kaminari

Anyway, we did not made it a big celebration.

We’ve celebrated the moment just as simple as always. icon:p_tulip

icon:face2_gawk buu…

Yeah, as if I sounded so pure and romantic and as if simple is the best.. icon:face_watching

In fact, it is just that we are in a very tight budget now to keep living through the days which made us just had to be simple icon:f_been

Maybe I’d choose to be escorted to a candle-light dinner with my best dressicon:mark3_sign01, or out to the sea sailing on a cruise romantically with just the two of usicon:mark3_sign03, or up to the sky on an air-balloon travelling through the cloudsicon:mark3_sign01icon:mark3_sign03 IF we are simply icon:h_kira01icon:o_dollar richie icon:o_dollaricon:h_kira01


No, I’m not materialistic, I’ve just got aims upon life. icon:w_5_l_thundericon:o_sagittarius

Experience all the might if we could icon:body_a_biceps. That is what i guess life should meant to be.

Of course with the might we both have now, though still tiny, I am great happy with everything I have and know that I am really blessedicon:mark3_sign01icon:face3_kao06icon:h_kira02 

Though simple, our 1st Anniversary were the sweetest and the most memorable one ever. (and more to come of cz!)


You can’t beat us icon:mark3_sign03 icon:face3_kao24

Variety and yet Budgety icon:w_7_star

Simple and yet still celebrated with the fondest memories. icon:face_shy icon:h_heart04

We drank the whole bottle of wine and one glass of Jinro (Korean alcohol) + orange juice.

And that got me, my head a bit *wink wink* (dizzy) icon:w_5_typhoon after that…icon:face2_wobbly

but nevertheless,

despite the simplicity of the celebration,

I think I just had,



a real sweet WONDERFUL night. icon:face_shyicon:h_heart04

Restaurant City or Cafe World ??
★2009/10/31 00:13

Do you Facebook?

If yes, then you are surely been addicted to one of the Facebook Flash game.

We have,
games from Playfish,
games from Zynga,
games from Metrogames,


there are 2 similar games which hit the popularity since they’ve ever started.

Restaurant City and Cafe World.

They are both restaurant game running your own shop with recipes of food.

Just wanna know,

Do you love Restaurant City icon:mark3_sign02 icon:h_heart09

Or do you love Cafe World icon:mark3_sign02 icon:h_heart09



I’ve been playing Restaurant City since months ago and personally think that RC is more fun to play as a game. 

I’ve tried Cafe World recently and I don’t really think this game attracts me that much.

Maybe also because I’m too obsessed to RC and it may takes time to accept another similar game…

Comparing Restaurant City and Cafe World..

icon:num_1_one Character and Uniforms

Different people has different preference on style, 

I always think Restaurant City‘s style is cuter which brings in some touch of the Japanese anime. 

Whereas, people who loves the western more might prefer Cafe World‘s style I guess.

icon:num_2_two Markings on the face


RC is still cuter…

icon:num_3_three Recipes


I still love RC style..

Their touch of drawing is softer and feel complete. icon:h_heart08

icon:num_4_four The Interior


CW may be nice here coz it looks retro~ icon:o_tv2

I have not play CW long enough to really understand the fun of the game.

What else do we need to do and think to play CW besides chopping, cutting, shaping when cooking a dish? icon:an_c_hiyoko

Like in RC,

We need to arrange for the best layout so that we could get the best result in gaining Coins, GP and Popularity.

We trade for ingredients.

We manage our employees. The ratio of cooks and waiters makes a difference too.

We observe the flow of customers and hope for improvements.

RC is FUN icon:face_self-conscious_smile

I know RC and CW is a different game and I can’t just compare them with each other so directly.

But I hope CW can make me stay longer to explore more of the game..  icon:face_expressionlessicon:h_sweat02 


Anyway, I’m a full-time addict to Restaurant City and I can tell that this game is getting more and more interesting since it has started months ago. Updates are frequent.

Check out my all-about-Restaurant-City blogRestaurant City Addicts icon:mark3_sign03 icon:face_self-conscious_smileicon:h_kira01

The latest updates we had were all for Halloween icon:mark3_sign03 icon:o_dokuroicon:h_shineicon:o_dokuroicon:h_shineicon:o_dokuroicon:h_shine  

Yeah, they started to be festive too.. icon:o_dokuro icon:h_heart09

They even have cute Halloween recipes for the festival icon:mark3_sign04 icon:o_dokuro icon:f_z_restaurant

Are you emotional??
★2009/10/09 20:28

What do you do when you are feeling emotional?

I’m feeling so emotional nowadays and I’ve always running away from it by occupying my mind with TVs, movies, dramas, and books!

People grow, thought change.

I almost forgot how adventurous and challenging I used to be. (-_-)

Well, well, well! I need to search back my enthusiasm!!!

I’m not going to let anything or anyone to affect my ways of thought!

Every time when I’m in a mood right down under deeper than anyone could have imagine, 

I’ll always try to think, why do I bother so much?

Life is short as anybody would say. 

“HAPPY” liven up your life.

“SAD”, “STRESS” would just ruin part of your life.

And moreover, a human life is just a very very small existence to the Universe!

Try to think about the nature of the planet, the beauty of the earth, the planet with so much of all mysterious phenomenon are just so marvelous that you’d feel that your own existence is like an ant of a colony!

So, why bother?

You thank God that you have a life to enjoy.

Time is not to be wasted.

I convinced myself with all these wonderful thinking of the planet when I’m in a depression which shouldn’t exist at all in one’s life..


I would love to cheer myself with a lovely warm Foot Spa as well icon:face_shy icon:h_heart04

Enjoy life which every one should be..icon:yb_see


I’m gonna be STRONG!

I’ll be the girl that everyone would ADORE!! icon:h_heart09
