A Spooky Makeover

Heidi-ho, dear readers! As you've probably realised upon walking into my blog, the layout has changed. It's something I've been thinking of for several months now but put in the back burner because things started happening and everything was crazy. But since plenty of things have changed and some infos are incorrect by now, I thought this would be the perfect time to make it happen. It seems way simpler than the last one, huh? While I enjoyed the splay of colours in the previous design, this more serene look is indeed what I need right now. Also, I hope it'll prevent your browser from crashing - because I heard my blog could be quite big in bytes. The spooky, bloody theme is completely coincidental to Halloween.

Because it's still new and fresh from the oven, it's still in experimental/beta stage. There might be some errors here and there for the next couple days. I apologise for the inconvenience. If you do find glitches/troubles with some parts of the blog, please do let me know so I can try and fix it for you. Some changes have yet to take effect because, honestly, I'm exhausted right now and it's clearly past the doctor's-order bedtime. Oops! Well, hope you like the new layout. Please leave a comment below to let me know what you think.

Do You Know the Pumpkin Girl?

Surprise, surprise! I can play the piano! It's not just a backdrop, mind you. If you must know, I've been playing since I was probably 8. My sister does too and my brother was in on it a bit too. None of us ever performed in public though, be it in a concert or a concour. We just never really take interest in music enough to turn it into something. We used to have the sweetest and kindest piano teacher, who never stopped smiling and being patient with me despite my spoiled-brat attitude. Miss Retno, if you happen to be reading, hello! I wasn't really interested in classical music so it easily bored me. So instead, she brought us songs we requested, such as "A Thousand Miles" by Vanessa  Carlton or Disney songs or traditional/children songs. Though I've forgotten how to play most of the songs she taught us, there is one tune that I will never forget how to play. It's called "Sea Mist." I believe it was composed by James Bastien and it's the only song I can play almost without fault off the top of my head. It always makes me feel so calm and mellow. Lately, I've been trying to learn "Yin no Piano" from Darker than Black. Such a melancholic tune~

Halloween is near! I'm hoping to attend Moola Mantra then, in which my best friend Gina is involved. Though I'm still unsure of the costume. This outfit really reminds me of Halloween. I guess a pair of skeleton tights are the only detail missing. This wasn't the first time I was going to borrow this dress of my sister's. Before, though, I was quite hesitant since, as an Asian woman, my skin has this yellow streak, which means wearing an orange dress makes me look rather flushed. But with this black shirt underneath, I'm not too afraid to finally rock this skater dress. The cut is absolutely my favourite, except maybe the low neckline and back, which makes it more suited as a pinafore than a dress on its own. At first, I was going to put on a pair of orange tights as well but then I felt it was pushing it a little, so black it is. I've been waiting for the right time to wear these shoes on the blog again, if you can't already tell. Current favourite, indeed! Also, for some reason, the hat is a real head-turner. Maybe because it slowly made its way to one side of my head, leaving it looking quite lopsided. Or it was more thanks to my giant-pumpkin look ;)
