Weird Underwater Creatures!

(January 2012)

Side view of the first fish featured in my video

Can you spot the fish?

Can you now?

Guess what this creature is?

Tadaa



Hello you can't disguise yourself cuz you're too fat

Is this the same kind with the spiky red thing I touched in the video???

Guess what this is?


Some... sea snail.

Some... thing.

Some octopus?

Looks like this thing's eating a fish???


Yikesss

Eww ew ew ew ew I HATE TENTACLES


Skinny starfish?

Normal colorful fishes finally. Yay.

And a bird.

Acrylic decoration at the restroom area

Selfies time!

All the pink plush toys were honored to have a picture with me 


Oh look my face is so long

Look alike 1

Look alike 2

I wouldn't hate octopuses if they look cute like this. Teehee

Souvenir. When it glows in the dark it's damn gorgeous okay. My camera failed to capture its beauty!

Guess how much it cost? $60 wtf. Must have gone 失心疯 that time to let Kitty bought me this!!! I thought it was a real jellyfish inside, but when I reached home I saw a 'Made in China' label at the bottom and felt so cheated ಥ_ಥ but Kitty said it's really neat and its purpose as a souvenir is worth the price he paid! It has then become my gratitude stone ^_^

I'm so loved

Give me your money

Just a rant post, you can click away now. Thank you bye.

These few days I'm sulking over the fact that I was not born rich for the first time in my life, so please don't lecture me on how I should be grateful of what I have and give me examples of how in the poorest parts of the world kids are starving and dying everyday. Most of the time I don't think about money, like, I know I'm richer than many poor people (and poorer than many rich people), but I don't really think about money much, and don't really watch how much I spend (although I always choose the cheaper things), because I don't usually spend a lot of money anyway, except on food. And on clothes, but I'm calculative when I'm shopping, hence my hauls actually carry more monetary value than the amount I paid, so it's okay. Anyways— 

I was just thinking, if I was born rich, I could have achieved much more than I already achieved today. I could have had an exhibition of my artwork, gotten interviewed on radio stations, published some books, gotten featured on newspapers, etc. Right, first of all you need to have talents and dedication bla bla bla, right. But guess what, I know someone who is younger than me, not particularly talented but has already achieved half of what I just listed—oh maybe she's just lucky—right, she IS indeed lucky, because she was born filthy rich, and all those can be achieved so easily even if you have zero talent.

I have talents. And passion.

Yet I haven't achieved any success that is big enough for me to feel proud of myself and my life.
(no I don't consider getting sponsored to study for a Bachelor degree in the US as a remarkable success)

Because I don't have the time to work for those achievements. I don't have the time because I have to use my most of my time to study to maintain good results to secure my current and future scholarships for tertiary education (and use the remaining time to de-stress). I have to get scholarships because I wasn't born rich, yet I'm so stuck-up and ambitious that I swear to myself I'm not gonna settle with anything less than a PhD, and the 'yet...' will not be there had I been born rich. To all those who say money can't buy you true success and true happiness, fuck you, what do you mean by 'true success', 'true happiness', success is success and happiness is happiness, you simply don't know what you are saying because you have never been rich and have never experienced what money can do for you. Sour grapes.

My goal in life is not to become filthy rich (although that would be nice and I wouldn't oppose the idea) and I'm always glad that I'm not spoiled because I wasn't born rich, but you see, I want comfort, and I want success, I want my family to live a carefree life, I want to help people who are disenfranchised in poverty, and everything would have been much easier if a one-billion-dollar check falls from the sky into my pocket, right now.

Indigo children like me should grow up poor and then become rich at 20's.

Seriously.

Pike Place Market

(January 2012)

Pike Place Market is a public market overlooking the Elliott Bay waterfront in Seattle, Washington, United States. The Market opened August 17, 1907, and is one of the oldest continuously operated public farmers' markets in the United States. It is a place of business for many small farmers, craftspeople and merchants. Named after the central street, Pike Place runs northwest from Pike Street to Virginia Street, and remains one of Seattle's most popular tourist destinations.



Sadly 90% of the stalls were closed because we visited during a snowstorm!





Actually what is there to watch huh Ծ_Ծ

Free papers on the counter at the waterfront viewpoint





Fortune-telling machine

Visitors drop quarters into coin boxes, peek through stereoscope-style viewing slots, and are rewarded with views of various giant shoes, including another size 37 brogue worn by Robert Wadlow, the world's tallest man.


Clown shoe is free for viewing.

World's Largest Collection of Giant Shoes ಠ_ಠ I felt cheated.

Giant shoes my foot.

Entrance to another lower ground!






The only underground crafts store that was open!




I love the crafts, but it was too pricey for me! (seriously, I'd rather buy polymer clay and do it myself.)

So many secret passages ⊙_⊙(my sense of direction is ultra terrible I can even get lost inside a campus building wtf)

Details that caught a Genetics major's attention ◠ω◠

Another crafts store (closed) 



Hey look! Erect penis of a troll *trollface.jpg*

Guess what?


Puppets ♥








Kitty requested me to do this -_-

Left: Kitty     Right: Me.
does it mean that I'm always right hahahahaha



That was it.

We also visited the colorful Gum Wall hidden somewhere in the middle of Pike Place market. Which I blogged about earlier HERE.

Near Pike Place Market located the first ever Starbucks store. I blogged about it HERE.




And we aimlessly wandered around...



Some people were sledding here

We went in ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
