BLOG -- Recap of July

So, here is my recap blog for July. This month was much busier for me. Like my June recap blog, I will mention everything that happened this month, even if I blogged about it. If anybody is curious on my thoughts on anything, as always, please go ahead and ask. :)

Outings/Events in July:
- Celebrated my birthday almost everyday during my birthday week.

- Went karaoking for 2 hours. I was at a new place and was checking out its computer catalogue while singing, haha.

- Went clothes-shopping and splurged slightly.

- Had a BBQ lunch at work. It was Olympic themed. I enjoyed it very much.

- Had drinks with my co-workers after work (x2). One time I was eating a donut that a co-worker got for me.

- (beer) Rickard's White -- bitter! Not as bitter as Carlsberg, though.

- (beer) Creemore -- bitter, but tolerable.

- (cider) Somersby Cider -- sweet and delicious.

- (alcohol) Gin & Tonic -- very delicious and refreshing.

 - (restaurant) Finn Izakaya -- the food is good and the service is good.

- (restaurant) Kinton Ramen -- a very busy place! Good food, though.

- (restaurant) Asahi Sushi 

- (restaurant) Wow! Sushi

- (Anime): iDOLM@STER: The Animation -- I enjoyed what I could of it. I didn't understand everything, but I liked what I saw. Especially all the singing and dancing.

- (Anime): Basilisk --  Very good, but such a sad ending. I will not acknowledge that ending and will just make up a suitable ending for myself.

This chocolate came from Peru. I've kept the ribbon and placed it on one of my stuffed toys.

Thanks for reading! :)


  1. I remember watching Basilisk on Netflix, then deciding to take a break halfway through and watching this Japanese film called "Shinobi: Heart Under Blade" which also happened to be on Netflix. I remembered seeing a friend who had a Blu-Ray version of this film from a while ago, so I decided to check it out.

    Little did I know that both the anime and the film were based on the same story, except that the movie was an extremely truncated version of the anime given its movie-length time constraint, with laughable costumes and acting (for the "badass" characters, at least).

    When I realized this, I put off watching the film until I finished the anime. The endings were different, but I wish I could forget about the film version. lol

    1. I've also watched Shinobi: Heart Under Blade, but I saw all of it before the anime. Both were slightly different, so I don't compare them much. I actually kind of liked the movie ending just a bit more. But I think both endings could have been different -- like -- happier.
