GifSpam! Unite the League

I still liked the original tagline they used last year ‘Unite the seven’ because we the fans knew or hoped that the seventh member of the Justice League is the Green Lantern. But the second trailer released at SDCC this year has got everyone on the hype train.
 
 
 
 
 

Diary: Last week


6:30am start today and I’m back to the daily grind after a fabulous weekend either relaxing or out with friends, this is also my last week of work doing 6 days before my annual leave for Europe begins. I am all packed and ready to go, just have my day bag to prep for but otherwise everything else is ready for the month trip. Mum keeps telling me how busy we will be with training around the different countries and I know this won’t be a shopping trip, I’m just overall excited for the experience.

I am also still in fangirl mode over all the goodies being released from San Diego comic-con, that is another bucket list to one day check out the convention and be part of the masses in Hall H. The trailers for Shadowhunters, Avengers 3: Infinity war, Justice League have got me squealing and I can’t believe that Adelaide Kane (Mary from Reign) is going to be in Once upon a time and Tom Welling (Superman from Smallville) is going to be featured in the new season of Lucifer!

  • My old assistant manager celebrated her birthday this past Saturday in the city, it was great to catch up
  • Kagami event has opened on Second Life, it’s a Japanese horror game brings back nostalgia from 2 years ago
  • I pre-ordered Occamy, the bird snake from Fantastic Beasts, a special pop doll from San Diego comic-con
  • My dragon story has been moved from my little black book into word document
  • Cute covered journals from Typo such as mermaid scales are addictive, I need to stop buying them!

雨流儀: Fuschia Fusion



There are various shades of the colour pink and Ame will wear all of them as much as she likes changing her hair colour. Recently I have been adding fuschia to the outfits on Polyvore to break up the same repetitive pattern of hot pink with denim or all black attire.

I am posting the three LOTD that feature fuschia;

Girly Frills: In her home city of Tokyo, Ame goes all out usually with her outfits and it usually means otherworldly accessories and random add-ons to the clothing. This look is no different, she favours unique heels or thigh-high leather boots and her pink katana is usually sheathed on her upper back. She also has a collection of different badges from various stores and pins them in her denim skirt. Her lipstick is usually Christian Louboutin’s lip lacquer.


L.A Cruising: Ame loves travelling to the City of Angels and not just because her former Dominant Jacen used to live there and she visited him often. She loves going shopping in Rodeo Drive and Melrose Avenue but has her lunch in Little Tokyo because it gives the familiarity of home. Normally in shorts or mini skirts, this particular outfit is giving out more class but still reflecting her eccentric taste in food accessories.


Hunting in Hong Kong: Post Cartel arc, the youngest Yakuza flies to Hong Kong to find answers of her target who fled Mexico when she was there with her older sister. Not wearing her trademark red lipstick and merely going with pink gloss, the steampunk goggles are also more an accessory than of any real technical use. She is armed up bringing two katanas and shuriken while hunting in the streets.

GifSpam! Reunited

San Diego Comic-con means plenty of nerdy goodies are coming our way and yesterday when I got home, they released a new trailer for Kingsman 2 that is coming out in September and it looks soo good! Harry Hart is back as we know and his team up with the new Galahad, Eggsy is awesome!



My reaction echoes Agent Tequila for sure!

Mood: Busy Bee


The past three days at work have been non stop to say the least, each day I have been clocking off work at least 45mins to an hour later, this usually isn’t the norm for me and it’s not because I haven’t been able to be on top of my work. No my checklist is signed off and complete on each shift it is because I take on additional tasks to help my Assistant manager so they can leave on time as well. Tomorrow is my last day before my two days off and tonight I printed off 114 registration cards, so many!

My colleague is determined to sign up the majority of them into our hotel loyalty program while I am just thinking of how much updating we will need to do from each registration card and adding membership numbers to every one who signs up. I would have no problem with this if my parents weren’t always arguing with me that it isn’t my job to stay back every day. I understand that I am rostered on from certain hours but it is always about flexibility, this is what hotels is all about and it is not like I hate my job, I am passionate in what I do here. I wish my parents understood this by now.

I have been given the roster for next week and my boss has given me three days before flying to Europe off! Happy to say I am one happy traveller and not too long until the big day arrives 😀

Diary: Life as it is


8 days can put a strain on your body and you can imagine how relieved I was when 11pm finally clocked over and I was happily leaving work last Friday for my weekend off! It is also not long now until I am away for a month and in Europe! I keep having dreams of flying business class would be like. Though I have done it before when going to Christchurch with mum, this longer trip will be worth the heavy dollars that my family and I paid.

Also can’t wait to meet my other half in London, if all goes well with him and I after our first official meeting in reality, he said he would fly down under for my sister’s wedding next year in March! Here is hoping everything goes smoothly.

  • Catch up dinner with Mei last night, I haven’t seen her in a month!
  • Crunchie hot choc, The Choc Pot invented it and its a subtle version of the monster milkshakes. Yum!
  • The original Disney Princess voice actresses are making a cameo in Wreck it Ralph 2!!
  • I lost another kilo, I just wish my body would stop fluctuating on itself
  • Binge watching Z nation on Netflix, that show I admit is better than TWD >.>

雨流儀: Yakuza fashionista



It is Summer in the Northern hemisphere and I am thinking of warmer climate, bright colours and not much layers of clothes to be worn. It has also randomly inspired me to make a trio of new outfits on Polyvore for my Yakuza fictional character- Ame Hayato. Still going with her signature colours of pink and black and keeping to her face claim that is HyunA, I hope you like the LOTD.

Made over the course of this week, these are the three styles I have created;
Tres Chic by lucilxlu featuring a chain necklace
Tres Chic: Morning coffee run for herself before she starts her day in any of the fashion capitals of the world, originally I was going to have a black skirt to go with the feminine pink blouse but after seeing these fringed shorts from Farfetch, I decided that they were definitely more Ame’s style especially when paired with the Barbie heels by Charlotte Olympia. I have a couple of favourite items in this LOTD, the unicorn bag from Angelic Pretty, I have always wanted to have an accessory from this Japanese lolita store but its has always been too expensive to buy online, the perfume inspired by Beauty and the Beast is another addition I fave and the unicorn make-up brushes.

Hot Summer by lucilxlu featuring wall art
Hot Summer: Her make-up palette here is all rainbow! I can definitely see Ame attending a pride week parade whether it is back home in Shibuya during Rainbow week or going overseas to the foreign countries and watching them in either LA or Rome. Also with the rise of temperatures as the northern hemisphere heads towards the middle of its Summer, Ame be keeping cool in this crochet halter top. The denim skirt with pearl accessories was a favourite addition of mine to add in as well as the sushi plushies in the bottom right corner.

All rose by lucilxlu featuring a paco rabanne perfume
All Rose: Out of the 3 new outfits I made for Ame, this was the first one I created and it started from finding the pink cupcake top on another style on Polyvore. Going with a very elegant and feminine look, the telephone bag by Betsey Johnson and illustration of the wine bottles gives a very Parisian feel to this LOTD. The make-up collection she wears are all by Chanel, normally I do not go with this designer but the make-up was too cute and went well in this style. My favourite adds are the King and queen bracelet by Alexander McQueen, the silver dragon claws because a Yakuza’s daughter still needs ‘weaponry’ and the heels by Betsey Johnson of course.

GifSpam! Ultraviolet

I recall watching this movie during my year off after finishing high school, I don’t recall much other than the fact she could genetically change her hair all the time like Scarlett’s Lucy. It’s on Netflix now and I watched it last night, the storyline was crap but the action scenes are amazing!
 
 
 
 

Mood: Hopeful


I had a phone interview today with the reservation manager at Olympic park properties, it went good I believe and he will get in touch with me either by Thursday or by next Monday. With the assistance of my boss I have been submitting transfer forms and my resumes to various properties around Sydney. There was another I submitted today for the new Sofitel in Darling Harbour.

Again it was reservations and if I’m honest with myself, if I had to choose between the two if I got accepted in both, I’d go Sofitel for multiple reasons such as its in the city where I always go every Friday night for either Japanese or Asian street market food no matter what season it is. It is also specifically located in Darling Harbour where I first started working in hotels, seven years ago that is a lot of nostalgia right there. Plus it is a five star property and it is new! Right next to the newly built convention centre.

Either way, both of them are a different direction to my usual Front office job and it be nice for a change, I keep saying in this blog of mine that I have become stalemate in my current position and looking for something fresh to be part of. This idea of leaving Front desk and trying a new department in hotels has gotten me hungry.
