So some how I formed a brunch/tai-tai club with a few gal pals from SNGS XD We hung out earlier at Le Chocolat Cafe, and now we are back for more! This time, we planned for brunch at Maison Ikkoku (:
Different ways to brew your black coffee.
Signature M Latte!
Salmon Scrambled. $18 for this is pretty worth it!
Two lattes & one mocha!
Friend said that enjoying warm beverages more than cold ones is a sign of aging OTL So you can see one of us is still young LOL. We dined alfresco, and it got too hot for us, so we took a walk XD To fully enjoy your dining experience, you can call them to reserve a table (:
Now that I'm working everyday, such moments are hard to come by >.< I spend most of my rest time playing Sora no Kiseki XD I'm done with the first two games, and now on to the 3rd!
Sneak screenshot preview for the next write-up! The resident loli,
Spent some time walking around Daiso after my work briefing.
Will be working at Yfest Outdoor Theatre this coming weekend :D Do drop by for evenings of fun!

With the recent anime release of Shingeki no Kyojin (also known as Attack on Titan), you would have definitely heard her in the ending theme Utsukushiki Zankoku na Sekai (This Beautiful Cruel World)! This marks her first single release as Youko Hikasa (日笠 陽子).
In addition to singing, she originally started out as a seiyuu before branching into anisong. She has voiced several with various personalities, from the shy and sweet Akiyama Mio (K-On!) to outspoken and sexy Yukinokouji Nobara (Inu x Boku SS).
She is a member of the five-girl pop music group Ro-Kyu-Bu!, along with Kana Hanazawa, Yuka Iguchi, Rina Hidaka and Yui Ogura. The group takes its name from the anime series Ro-Kyu-Bu! as they voice main characters from the series.
More recently, she has recorded Owaranai no Uta (Song That Doesn't End) for Hal, an upcoming romance movie to be released on the June 8th. She will also release her first album tentatively titled “Yoko Hikasa Collaboration Album” on July 17th.
She still doesn't have a lot of singing experience yet, but hopefully she will gain more roles that are closely tied to singing such as K-On! or more opportunities to release singles! I am looking forward to more of her works ((:

All pictures are property of Infanta unless otherwise stated.
This was actually a tip-off from dollonstrings, who spotted this collection first XD Infanta comes out with a lot of print dresses, including the Red Riding Hood JSK which I wore for a photoshoot some time ago.
From my shoot!
The Sleeping Beauty collection features a JSK, SK and two head accessories, a bonnet and a KC (Katyusha, or hairbow).
Sleeping Beauty JSK
I personally prefer the dark brown one to the original colour :P
Doesn't show off the dress, but I like the composition!
Sleeping Beauty SK
Sleeping Beauty Bonnet
Heard from dollonstrings that not -anyone- can wear a bonnet, but I myself have no idea what the requirements are XD If you're worried, you might want to consider getting the KC instead.
Loving the bow at the back (^_^)
Sleeping Beauty KC
Again, available in brown and the original colour. It's a pretty big bow which would not be so welcomed for a casual outfit, so matching might be limited if you're looking for accessories for casual Lolita wear.
Sometime ago, I participated in a giveaway hosted by fellow blogger, Zongyi! She not only blogs, she is a freelance model and dances really well too! The giveaway was about OFRA Cosmetics, and I won the following:
1. Vitamin C Cleanser
2. BB Cream
3. Three Coloured Lipsticks
5. A few Sample-sized makeup
6. OFRA Catalog
I seriously didn't expect the full-size products to be so big, especially the BB cream and the Vitamin C Cleanser XD The package also came with a handwritten note from Zongyi (:
Along with her signature mermaid namecard (:
In her giveaway post, she even reviews the items for you! Isn't that informative (: OFRA Cosmetics is also very generous with their giveaway items ((:
The bold colours she picked for me XD
Good for cosplay or halloween XD
Samples of their foundation in #05 & Body lotion
The sample foundation blends really well, leaving no streaks behind even when using my fingers to blend it. Too bad #5 is really dark for me. It will be good for a tanned look perhaps? XD
I will be trying out the BB cream for a few consecutive days to see how it works! Hopefully it will not give me more pimples >.<
Bandana to keep stray hairs away from face during makeup!
Their kits are impressive!
I will continue to update this post with mini-reviews of my own as and when I get to use these products. Really excited to try the Vitamin C Cleanser because my current one will be finishing soon!
The only thing I will be sad about is that their website does not do international shipping, and as of now I have no idea where to get these items locally. So it means when I run out, it's GONE sigh ):
Decided to wear Lolita for the event, and not the wig because the day was so hot XD And with the after-event that happened, I'm really glad I didn't put on a wig haha! Had a pretty good vantage point with dollonstrings, who had an unfortunate experience of being rudely pushed around ._.
Kai, the emcee for the day! Great job though needs work haha.
So I could still get pretty good shots from the side.
dollonstrings left halfway while I changed to a worse wantage point, but that's where the magic happened! Met K & and her friend (forgot name, sorry!) who were pretty amazed by Clive's coscard XD They even mentioned creating a gamecard template for coscards so that they could turn into into a game, since trading coscards was pretty common XD
Met D as well, who was cosplaying from Megaman series. Had some trouble with his gloves lol.
Very near the backstage area.
Cannot see what's on stage at all XD
Caroline, Clive's wife whom I met that day, would keep peeking over and kindly update me about what was going on up there when Kaname was on XD Lots of fangirls!
20 lucky fans would get to take pictures with the guests!
Randomly got brought into a conversation, which was when I met W and J! Turns out W was Natumi's friend that she brought along for the event, and J was W's friend based in SG LOL. Since they had a bit of time to spare, I volunteered to bring them around! Event-goer-turned-volunteer-helper haha!
Brought W and J to Le Chocolat Cafe since Kki had ran out of cakes by the time we got there.
Cocoa Berry Ice Blended & Choc Mint Cake!
W with her Rainbow Mousse
J with her Brownie with Ice Cream!
Found a vintage-looking 7-11 while strolling:
Merged with the surrounding shophouses.
Took a train back to try to catch the laser show at MBS, but we missed it XD
Ate ice cream at Au Chocolat!
My first time on the DNA/Helix Bridge!
Spotted a really cool shop at Citylink Mall! Will be tempted to go again XD
Accompanied them back to the hotel where we waited for Natumi and her helper, E. E was really friendly and kind too! Added me on FB immediately when I met her haha! Was home pretty late, but with all the travels and experiences, I think it was pretty worth it! Thankfully I took leave today, seems like I'm down with a cold XD
(should have used my own cam ugh iPhone why you like that)
I am really blessed that I have met such kind and friendly people at every event I have gone to so far, whether or not I've been stationed to work there. Really really blessed to meet such amazing, passionate people who know how to prioritize their life. Also for very understanding family members who accommodate my crazy schedules.
...and I'm still not ready to face my results tomorrow XD Ganbatte NUS peeps!
