First Christmas without Papa J

It surely is different without him. His shuffling around the house to the dinning room table. The over sized knitted sweater that he would be wearing because he's a little cold. The slow and pressuring trek that he would have to make up the stairs after breakfast to open the presents. The "Oh - Thank You" of his voice.

I know he's surely watching from above and missing the delicious foods. Happy we're all celebrating together.

I AM creative just got a new camera in the family :) @bdotq @thinkvik

Koji and his new bed that is to go to mama's house. This little camera was one I was eyeing for a while as I thought it could be one the ways we can have a Polaroid guestbook? where guests take pics of themselves and sign under it.

I would have to buy a lot of film though. But this is a neat toy. It reminds me of the joy cam I used to once have.

Mushroom, mushroom... Jellyfish! I swear that's a jellyfish :D

via Instagram

Alright while I was walking around the park, I see lit up mushrooms, and another mushroom and then when I saw the larger mushroom in this photo I said... OH LOOK! JELLY FISH!
Please don't ask my why I said out of the mushrooms I saw before....that I assumed the one that we came up was a jellyfish. Perhaps it was the thicker strand of lights around it's rim and then the squiggle strand beneath it. Boyfriend has become accustomed to my unique thinking patterns. The fact that I just don't think like everyone else. Because the others are mushrooms... doesn't mean they are all mushrooms. 

Festival of Lights is so pretty it needs no filter

via Instagram

Before ending our date night at Festival of Lights, we hit up the Christmas Market at QE plaza... I don't know if it's worth going every year to. Maybe some people do it as a tradition. It was nice to be first time visit to Festival of lights. Everything is so pretty and it was neat to see the creativity of those who designed the lights. I was impressed with the water bottle tulips. 

Inkdrops are falling on my head.... Not really #VAG

Today is Christmas Eve Date day with the boyfriend.
First stop is the Vancouver art gallery to see the forbidden city exhibit. Spoiled by ROM and the MET... and watching other documentaries have spoiled my pure curiosity and WOW factor of this exhibit. The problems of self-educating. Still beautiful to see though and interesting. I love the different ways artists are pushing Asian artwork that was being shown on the second level. The art piece that seemed like a giant watercolour painting was created through shadows and objects behind it lit up by florescent lighting.

What's the black box for? #papermodel #uphouse #diy

via Instagram

So I created this paper model of the Up house as part of a decoration for my wedding.
But there is this one mysterious piece I don't know where it should go.
Where does the black box go?!

I had to alter/add to the design that I got as it was missing some features of the Up house.

You can find this design I got: Up House
The template they have doesn't match the following GIF, so I added windows myself to my design and you can do so too.

Another photobooth gig done

It's holiday season and what's fun is I get to do photobooth gigs with Vik!
This year was interesting as some guy decided to take off his shirt. Should we have a ... no shoes, no shirt, no service sign?

Fun times all around anyways :)
