Another late update!


I recently bought an interesting title yesterday at BookSale, it’s called “Damn Good Advice (for people with talent)” by George Lois. Flipping through a few pages and I think it’s more for people in the advertising industry but his tips are very encouraging and somehow I feel energized and inspired with it haha, it must be the writing too. >XD
Catching up on Akagami no Shirayukihime and getting frustrated with framed Youtube videos. You know when the actual video is just a fourth of the video screen? WHY? Is that a way to compensate for quality? Why don’t they just effin declare they max out at 140p! Grrrr
To Daniela Andrade’s cover of Creep by Radiohead. She was on the related videos panel while I was listening to Sassa Dagdag’s La Vie En Rose cover. What soothing voices they have <3
About where to get my phone repaired. I inquired over at Sony and the technician said the screen has to be replaced because the touchscreen sensor could be damaged. huhu. I didn’t want to have it replaced cos the screen isn’t even cracked. ๐Ÿ™ I figured if I could only open the device, I could somehow clean it or whatever cos there may have been chlorine deposits on it? I was even thinking of submerging it in faucet water to kindof rinse it, or saltwater cos it worked the last time I took photos under the sea haha! Sounds stupid but I’m seriously considering it. T__T
I watched repair videos on Youtube and I could only cry. I wanted to try cleaning the insides first, but to be able to get to the LCD connector I have to disassemble through the front panel which is superglued to the body, and doing that would break the screen in the process. Now I finally understand why it really needs to be replaced. What a bummer.
Price check: If I order through Sony I’ll be charged some 6,000 *cries*. Other repair shops have estimated some 3,800 huhu . I searched ebay for spare parts so I could DIY and I saw an entire display module for 1,500 but I have to wait for one month cos it will come from HK pa. I can wait but I can only hope I’m still in the country by then. Hay. It’s so frustrating!
I had a lot of discipline when it comes to eating! I just earned 2lbs over the week! Huhu
Jersey + shorts
The soup we made earlier using Soupmate Pro. Yikes! We just fell into an infomercial trap! Anyway, I love the soup and the recipe book but I can’t say the same for the product (yet). It looks really fragile in its all-plastic glory, and they never mentioned it was a pain to clean (duh) cos you’re not allowed to wet the base! Craaap! 
But really, the squash soup we made was delicious: 3 cups water, 3 cups chopped squash, 1 small carrot, 1 onion, 1 medium apple, 1 can Campbells cream of mushroom soup, 1 tbsp butter, and finally salt and pepper to taste. Super yummy!
To have my phone repaired asap but where are you funds.
To start doing something with my health. I’m pretty aware I haven’t been eating that much greens and fruits, I can feel it in my breathing oh no. Sucks to be sick. Maybe I’ll try the 7 day soup diet. Maybe. Depends on the soup! But that squash soup?! I can eat that all day!
Generally okay despite being worried about not being connected to social media that much because of my phone. I’m using a basic Nokia phone right now that allows me to call, text, and set alarms and holy moley did I not feel any discontent. What a surprise.
It’s sad though cos I don’t have a camera and I can’t post to Instagram but thank God I remembered I still have a digicam! Yeyy! I feel bad not being able to post anything live during the two foodie meets I attended last week though. ๐Ÿ™
Hope you had a better week haha
