June 2017

Couldn’t believe half of 2017 just ended. June was kind of busy (and boring) with all the midterms and presentations and papers (#unilife)

June 8th to 11st was Nagoya University Festival (MeiDaiSai). I went to the festival on 10th June. It wasn’t as grand as I expected, a little bit disappointing.

Tamasen was surprisingly good, but the other food was just okay.

this tasted awful. 

I went to Sakae with Michael after that. We accidentally discovered this “Tebasaki Summit 2017 手羽先サミット2017” at Hisayaodori 久屋大通, which literally meant chicken wings festival. I kind of like the ambiance there – people eating chicken wings, drinking beers and dancing. Japanese seriously celebrates all sort of things.

Some random photos:
(1) Went to this cafe called Cafe, Drawing and Bar near where I stayed with Michael. The food was so cheap but good! Will definitely come back again.

MTEX @ Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

I was a huge fan of washitapes back in 2014. I still collect washitapes, just not as many as before. I was so excited when I knew MT was having an exhibition in Kuala Lumpur. Surprisingly, it turned out to be not what I expected. I didn’t even buy a roll of tape!

The decoration of the event hall was so gorgeous.

(2015) Meet Lang Leav

I came across Lang Leav’s poems on Twitter in 2014. I like her writing – simple and nice. I prefer reading her short stories more. I decided to read something out of my comfort zone, so I picked up Lang’s new book, Memories from the bookshop last year. And, I kind of like it! It’s the first book of poetry I read.

Lang Leav came to Malaysia in November last year before I finished reading the book. I was so excited about this and decided to attend. I never been to any book signing event before, it’s my first time! Yan Zhuang went there with me.

Date: 29 Nov 2015 @ Kinokuniya KLCC, Malaysia 

We were a bit late that day. By the time we reached, there was already a long queue! Lang read us some of the poetry from her books. Her voice is so sweet! She’s such a lovely person.
