Asian Pacific Heritage Festival

The Fish Was Flopping – I can’t decide if it’s funny or sad!

The Asian Pacific Heritage Festival is going on and if you haven’t been before, I need to pinch you because you need to WAKE UP! This is one of my favorite events as it’s always beautiful, there are always some sort of float or vignette to represent the various countries of the Asian Pacific region of the world, this year they are small barges beautifully decorating the water surrounding the docks and land where the festival is held.

You’ll find a host of interesting things to do at this event, from shopping (with free gifts ya’ll), panel discussions, art installations and a lovely gallery telling stories from Asian Pacific residents of the grid.

And of course, shopping.

One of my favorite features of this event, however, are the numerous food stalls where a foodie girl like me can graze for hours without causing a stir.

I’m Not Sure What This Is, But I’m Eating It

Food stalls and demo food that goes for days are really what sustains me here on the grid. Despite having a lovely kitchen I just so rarely cook, I love to eat like a hog and have it be free or near free!

I had to stop they have Udon

Yes yes I stopped at more than one place. Okay I stopped at every stall that was offering food. Is that wrong? I don’t care, I’m still doing it.

I forgot to pick up some sake. Darnit now I have to go back.

I did stop by and catch one of the panel conversations. I wasn’t able to stay too long but it was engaging and interesting. Check the panel when you arrive for the schedule of events.

This event is a 10/10 for fun.

Here is a taxi to drop you into the thick of the action. If you go, drop me a note in comments to let me know how you enjoyed it, and what your favorite snack was!

Emergency Bouquet

I was doing my usual round of weekend shopping fun today when I stopped a new to me place. This isn’t unusual, frankly a lot of the shops in the weekend events are fairly new to me and one advantage is truly that I have no idea anything about them. I get a bit excited – trying a new place and all.

But today it wasn’t the shop that thrilled me but some extra decor/fun items they had placed around that spoke to me. There was a vending machine that offered “Emergency Bouquets” and I have to admit, this more than spoke to me.

I needed a bouquet and I needed it STAT.

It was free, just a simple add on of a beautiful rose. I got to choose the color and if we’re honest, it was my favorite pick up of my shopping day today. How could I NOT love this?

I was seeking inner peace in a Buddhist garden today, and what better thing to bring with me than a beautiful flower to contemplate?

Monday With a Vengeance

There are people out there who hate Monday. I don’t really know why. It’s just another turn of the planet and now we’re out of our loungewear and into our work clothes. For me, it’s not really even that big of a deal as I’m likely to be wearing clothes to model on a weekend anyway.

Weekdays, weekends, it’s all just chopping up the trip around the sun into meaning that is really not there except thinking makes it seem so.

I’ve fallen in love with this lip color and I’m not sure when or if I can take it off. It just is such a perfect color to me. I rather want it in the RL honestly.

Now for me girls, I’m off to do all my fashiony bloggery things that I need to do this fine Monday. How are you filling your time? Let’s make some shit happen today! Make it a great day girls.

There might be a tendency to be concerned that I didn’t edit or fix that knee bit in this dress. In addition to not using PS, I also think it’s really good just to see things are they are and be OKAY with how they are. Sometimes things go wonky or have an intersection here or there. It doesn’t make them BAD! Our grid lives are going to have some wonkiness. If we can’t deal with that we might as well just look at renders.

It doesn’t make my flamingo scooter any less amazing, I assure you.

Happy Monday all – I’ll see you soon.

My Cat Is a Dog

It is no secret that I’m madly in love with KittyCats and I have my original mated pair who are now thousands of days old. Well, did you know that they made a MAX THE DOG kitty cat? To go along with their previously released GRINCH kitty? Max is just adorable, both a kitty and a dog, so I am solving all of my needs for both pets in just one kitty.

It’s perfect.

How was your christmas? Did you get everything you wanted?
