5 things I'm going to do better in 2015

This is not my goals list yet, it's only a continuation of my 2014 life goals. A glimpse of a better 2015. Plus I love making lists. *haha*

1. Take better care of myself. I am turning 29 this year. I realized it's okay to spend money on makeup, skin care products etc. Seriously why have I only discovered milk baths now?? and hand soaps?? and hand creams??

Well you get the picture. *haha* I don't even need to create a whole new budget for them. I just need to be a wise spender. That means sticking to my grocery list.

2. Invest on clothes. Yes even if it means being a little vain. I will not feel bad when I buy clothes. I am not going to use my clothes-fund on food. *haha*

3. Clean my house everyday. I'm really lazy when it comes to tidying up my house. I end up on a general cleaning spree after 2 weeks because of accumulated dust and whatnot. Not only is it bad for my health, I noticed it also affects how I think and feel. A messy physical environment creates a messy mind!

4. Digest information from books, blogs and articles. I will be a reader this year. Less consumption of useless data.



5. Spend 1 hour each day studying Nihongo. Since the Christmas holidays I have not lifted a single page from my Nihongo book. It's okay it's a time for fun and festivities but come January, I am going to start studying again. I don't want to be a mediocre language learner anymore. I am going to excel.

6. Move. Never stop moving. Travel! Never stop exploring. Art! Never stop learning. Read and study! Invest in yourself. Join Workshops!

Mona Lisa Project

What better way to cap off a stressful week but with art, good food and great company. R and I dragged ourselves to Solaire (and MOA) despite horrible traffic and the mad mad rush of holiday shoppers. Ugh holiday traffic is the worst!

It was still worth it though. We had a lot of fun. :)

Mona Lisa Project

Firstly, can I just say how much I love Solaire and how I want to camp inside and never ever leave. haha

Mona Lisa Project

Back on track, basically, the exhibit is how local artists understand and interpret  the Mona Lisa. And since I love reinterpretations of classical pieces, of course I had to see these for myself! It's a whole new way of enjoying the same art but in different perspectives and styles.

Here are some of my favorites...the other photos turned out blurry ( T-T)~

Mona Lisa Project

And my absolute favorite #64 by Iya Consorio :) I am loving this kind of art - I wonder what it's called, ink art? pen art?

There's so much going on but it doesn't look messy. The lines are clear. And of course I'm loving the gold accent. I wonder how she did it.

Mona Lisa Project

I'm hoping I will get to see the real Mona Lisa within the next 10 years (ahem pressure haha) but for now I'm happy I got to ogle at these lovely pieces of art. Catch it until January 15, 2015 at the Sky Tower, Solaire Hotel! (^-^)v
