My Second Vlog: Taobao Hauls!

Hello people~! ヾ(@⌒o⌒@)ノ

Finally, I’m finally done editing this video. Been battling aliens and slaying dragons during the past few weeks to do it. Nope, been too caught up with work, studies and social life…

I was pretty much done last week until I got stuck figuring out how to include a still image into the video. I knoww!! I should have tested it out before deciding to put it as part of the video. Didn’t thought there would be issues with iMovie (≥Д≤) After spending so much time scanning through forums, sites, et cetera for solutions, I have found none that help *rolled eyes* In the end, I omitted that part instead wth…If you have faced this issue before and have a method that works to insert an image into iMovie video, please share it with me. Would definitely appreciate the help! :D

By the way, I’m still kinda figuring out my video-making style and it would take more practise to find something I’m comfortable in. Anyway, this video was shot weeks ago and it was also during one of my ‘busy weeks’ so I was feeling sorta tired, I hope it didn’t show much… :/

Still, I hope you like what I’m sharing with you and if you have suggestions for improvements, do tell me in the comment box below~!

a slice of my life

So as I have mentioned in my earlier post, I was around in Penang for a while. Let me relate to you an incident that happened.

Since it was Wesak Day, I tagged along with my friend and her family to go pray. Like in most temples, we have to take off our shoes before entering the temple building. That day, when I got back my sandals were missing! I looked frantically everywhere but there were no sign of me misplacing them.

We deduced someone had taken mine either on purpose or also because someone has taken theirs. And to think I just bought the pair just 2 days before since my other sandal’s strap broke!! *facepalm*

Because I couldn’t go back barefooted for the rest of the day my friends told me to choose another and they went looking around for some slippers for me. I was like, really?? Seriously??

 In the end I did walk off with someone else slippers and felt guilty as shit.


But I made sure to choose a cheap-looking, worn-out pair of flip flops. My friends were jokingly recommending “better looking” and “branded” ones as though we were shopping for shoes wth #whatfriendsareforright

The next temple we went, I prayed for forgiveness for stealing the slippers wtf. I related this to my sis and she said despite praying I’ll still go to hell for that…

(;Д;) ( >∀< ) {go to hell d)

Apparently, this “vicious cycle” _as my friend put it_ is nothing new and even my mom has experienced this so many times she now chooses to go pray at temples that don’t have rules of needing to take off shoes or she simply wears her oldest, most worn-out pair. I’m so-o taking notes on this.

If you’re wondering what happened to the pair I took, in the end I threw it away and for the remaining of my holidays, I settled for a pair of really crappy, RM10 flip flops which I got from the morning market…

And oh, I also prayed that my slipper thief will carry the weight of my crime and then maybe I’ll be spared wth.
