Hello My Lovely Readers !
In merely hours , it'll be end of 2013 and another brand new year.
( be warned , this will be a super wordy + image heavy post ! )
I feel that I should reflect on things on the last day of 2013 so I've prepared myself to worm at home and celebrate new year with my cat family instead ( with my PS3 and lots of chips ) while writing this blog post !
Gosh , it took me few hours just to sort out the photos in my laptop and planning what to write about. Looking back , I think that 2013 is a wonderful year for me. No complains except the fact that my hair isn't growing fast enough lol.
For the last blog post of the year 2013 , I will be sharing about all the wonderful and interesting things that happened throughout the year. There are lots of good memories ( also sad ones but no need to mention la ah lol ) that I will treasure forever. I am happier and more positive now than ever.
Let's start ! (((＼（＠v＠）／)))
Let's start ! (((＼（＠v＠）／)))
Chop off my super long hair into a super short bob cut.
I always love having long hair but after a bad hair straightening job , my hair never grow thick anymore. #sadtruestory
Couldn't bear looking at my thin hair so I made a decision to cut it short for my hair to grow again. I regret cutting too short because now I'm having a hard time growing it back lol.
During CNY , don't know what hit me , I went to dip-dye my hair.
My mother was complaining about the color and I re-dyed 3 weeks later. ( ≧Д≦)
Earlier this December , I dyed my hair red.
My friends are shocked and asked me if something is wrong with me lol.
Actually I was feeling random and I stumble upon a hair dye review and just wanted to try it out. I really like the red color but I find it hard to match my clothes so I re-dyed again before Christmas !
Now , it's back to Dark Brown.
No more playing with colors already , later I become bald.
I tie my hair up in a ponytail everyday because it's at the annoying shoulder length. I think one more year and I'll have pretty hair again. ヾ(。◕ฺ∀◕ฺ)ノ
That's the end of my hair story.
One of my new year resolution last year was to do well in my studies / college.
I think that's one of the few resolution that I managed to fulfill.
Two more semesters to the completion of my Fashion Design Diploma.
I will continue working hard next year too !! ヾ(@°▽°@)ノ
As for my cat family , I have 6 cats now and they are all well and happy !
Whitey is born last year but still a precious miracle boy in the family.
Whitey is officially the fattest , furriest and biggest cat in my cat family.
Laziest too ! (⊙︿⊙✿)
Thank you God for blessing my cat family with good health and happiness.

I moved over to a new house too !
I have more working space now , a room just for my sewing / costume making / studies and assignments.
Wheeee to more crafting space !!
Last year , I took a 8 months break on cosplay .
This year , I resumed my costume making and cosplay again.
One of resolutions from last year which is to focus on the quality of my costumes instead on quantity. I took my own sweet time making costumes and I find it much more enjoyable this way.
Started making small props too because my new home has a balcony for me to spray my props ! ヽ(=^･ω･^=)丿
Much love to Blur from Naneee? Photography and Kenneth from KennTee Photography for supporting my cosplay projects and working alongside me this year !
Thank you very much guys ! ヽ(＾Д＾)ﾉ
I'm also blessed with abundance of opportunities this year , being able to travel to conventions as guest cosplayer.
Funan Anime Matsuri @ Singapore was my first event as a guest cosplayer !
I've always wish to meet cosplayers from different countries and my wish came true this year.
Every cosplayer has different set of skills which make them unique , and I'm really happy being able meet them and learn from them. ＼（＾▽＾）／
Then it was Anime Festival Asia Indonesia 2013.
I was a guest cosplayer and also meido again @ Moe Moe Kyun Maid Cafe !
I was blown away by the awesome performances by Indonesian cosplayers during ARCC.
You guys are so inspiring !
I'm also very happy meeting people who supported me all the way back since MMK 2012 till now. Thank you for visiting Moe Moe Kyun Maid Cafe and supporting my cosplays as well.
Thank you very much !! (´；Д；｀)
I was invited by Comic Fiesta to give a talk on Costume Making during COSMART 2013.
It was an honor for me to share about costume making because it's something that I really enjoy about cosplay !
Then I was invited again to Jakarta for Japan Matsuri @ Pluit Village !
I am very touched by the overwhelming response , great hospitality and the friendliness of Indonesian cosplay lovers !
I really enjoyed my time here with you !
Also met Pinky Lu Xun my dear cosplay inspiration and Naru , also a great cosplayer from Indonesia. Honored to be judging competition with you !
I've never received so many gifts in my life before.

Met Dempagumi Inc. ＼（Ｔ∇Ｔ）／
ALSO MET ONNIES IN FLESH.
We don't need the same language to communicate ...
Because we know what we like in common LOL.
Onnies is a very friendly and funny cosplayer. Can't stop laughing when she's around ! ❤
AFA Singapore 2013 is where I debuted my most elaborate costume ever made. Queen Esther from Trinity Blood ❤
It's super crazy making this in a month while juggling my studies but .. I made it. It's my most expensive gown ever and difficult to wear too lol.
Also met Hana and Baozi from China.
These boys are so good looking. Hmmm ❤
It's my fifth time being a meido @ Moe Moe Kyun Maid Cafe.
