Hello lovelies, how has your week been? It feels like ages since my last post. I’ve missed all your lovely comments and the love you all show me on this blog, I’ve been busy with school work and life, the semester is ending barely a month from now so i need to get all my work done to be able to enjoy the short end of semester break. Today’s post isn’t fashion-related, it’s a little about me expressing myself, life, people and just like the title says “chopsticks”! (can’t stop laughing at myself yet :))…
So it’s been one hell of a week..from good news, annoying news/developments, change of plans, exams, normal everyday school work, intercity travels in less than 48hours, people i care about pissing me off to me being highly irritable these past few days.
-I’m the kind of person that can be passing through the most difficult situations in life and still manage to keep smiling even with my stressed out face. I play and laugh a lot but when I’m serious, I’m 100% serious.
– i don’t like to talk about myself a lot (maybe you’ve noticed that on the blog too), i always want to solve/take care of all my problems myself even when i know that i can’t solve all, i tell myself “the least you could do is TRY”.
-I don’t let people get close to me easily, it takes me a while to really accept people in my life (can’t help it), When you don’t let any Tom, Dick and Harry get very close to you, you hear stuffs like, “What’s she feeling like? Who is she? etc.. priorities are different, get close to people that have similar/same priorities with you, people that have attained a certain level in life, so that they can help you grow into a bigger and better person. Sure, you will hang with your mates but when you know where you are coming from, you will most certainly know where you are going and what people think begin to matter less. I’m cool with lots of people but only very few people actually know/understand/can handle me.. most people think they do but they don’t..others either assume, criticize or judge from a distance..such is life.
– Right now the person i want to be in future scares the hell out of me, but if your dreams don’t scare you then you really have a long way to go.
-I may not have a million dollars but i certainly do know how to make my $1 feel like a million bucks.
At times people see you from a distance or from photos online and think/assume “Oh, she’s got it all”, “she’s got no problems”, “Everything is perfect for her, she’s always happy, she smiles all the time and so on.. meanwhile, you have just as many problems as the neighbor with the sad face .. Everyone’s got baggage, nobody’s world is perfect. But Life is too short to let life get in the way of your happiness!
I really needed to cool off, keep my worries aside, do/try something different and i went to my current favorite place Французский бульвар, Харьков (french boulevard, kharkov). I was with Queeneth and she seemed to be in the same type of mood as i was, so we started off by relaxing and taking photos at Planet Cinema Imax
‘s lounge, the place is just too beautiful, i would really love to experience their new 4DX technology though everything would be in Russian which i still struggle to understand.
After enjoying my cup of popcorn (which costs about $4) best i’ve had in a while, i decided to try Asian food for the first time. So we went to Tuk Tuk
. I’m not good at trying out different cuisines because my system isn’t very welcoming to change of food , I’m always careful with what i eat. It was also my first time of using chopsticks (weird huh?), everything’s got a first time 🙂
I had some difficulties with the chopsticks at first and just kept laughing at myself but who cares about sticks when they are hungry anyways..i concentrated on the hunger and that was how i managed to eat up the 400g pack with those chopsticks..You know what they say about hungry people 😉 I will practice using chopsticks again though i will be more patient and pay better attention instead of laughing to avoid embarrassing myself in future..:)
I think this is a Thai cuisine, not totally sure but i enjoyed every bit of it! I ordered the лапша рамен копченая курица (Egg noodles with smoked chicken and vegetables) Tastes way better than it looks..So far my stomach is still normal, no upsets. The 400g pack with the mirinda was about $6.. And that was how i had a great time with only $10..#Score!
My facial expressions whenever i see food though! *Smiles from within*
I had such a lovely time and on my way out of the mall i took photos of some decorations starting from the top floor to the ground floor while in the elevator..I’m excited about my new lens (did you notice something better about the photos? Yes! i upgraded to a better lens! Got myself the canon ultrasonic EF 50mm f/1.4 lens, early Christmas gift to myself) and I’m beginning to appreciate photography now more than ever..
When people say, wow! onyinye, your photos are lovely, you look good.. I just smile and say “You don’t know the half of it!”
One might not be able to correct or adjust the past but one can decide on whether to be affected by the past or not..one can decide to improve the future! Don’t let anything keep you from smiling!
Did you like the post? let me know in the comments box..
Have a lovely day and don’t forget to try something different, You deserve to smile!
