MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JANUARY 15–21, 2018 (HOMECOOKING, TONKATSU, FREELANCE PHOTO WORK, ALONE TIME)

With the apartment to myself, I find myself surprisingly productive. I spend time cooking, cleaning, working, and dancing in my kitchen (yes I totally did that like a cheesy movie montage). Enjoy!

Untitled
Woke up with Peanut in my lap. She’s going back home today, but it’s been fun having her in my face in the morning.

Untitled
I’m off work today because of MLK Day, a National Holiday. I decided to update my Bangkok Day 2 post (which you can read here) while Peanut watched closely.

Untitled
Joggin’

Untitled
Dinner time rolled around and Kiki and Ders arrived with takeout from ROC Dumpling house.

Untitled
Untitled
Friends are over to do a casual game night, we played three different things: Bang (Walking Dead edition), Skulls & Roses, and the firefighting game which is name is escaping me now.

Untitled
Untitled
We were missing some pieces so Santa BB8 got to play. This is a game where you play as a team to rescue people from a burning house. We lost. 😦

Untitled
Untitled
Morning! Happy Tuesday. Off to catch my 7am carpool.

Untitled
Got home Tuesday night and Zach was looking guilty…(yes, all my photo stuff is stuffed in the kitchen. I’m not 100% done with my job so I don’t want to pack stuff away just yet).

Untitled
Aw, he broke one of my bowls. It’s okay, it was an accident.

Untitled
He was attempting a steak recipe

Untitled
Untitled
That sauce was pretty friggin good. Cilantro, habanero peppers, sesame oil, garlic…

Untitled
Untitled
Retreated to my workroom to do some editing.

Untitled
Untitled
Still one of my favorite cups. Made some tea!

Untitled
Sometimes a warm light makes all the difference to make a room feel cozier. So much nicer than my overhead light.

Untitled
Finally edited photos from my ADIML I shot on Christmas Day. I know, it’s been a while. I’ll probably still post it because I want to be able to look back on holidays with family.

Untitled
Starting to edit the jewelry product shots I shot over the last weekend for a freelance gig.

Untitled
Untitled
Wednesday! Cozy, tired, eczema irritating me. It’s been super dry here, drier than usual, and my skin is just upset.

Untitled
Leftovers for lunch!

Untitled
Untitled
Only a few more weeks to see Golden Kingdoms, we popped over there to see the new objects just added to the exhibition.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Such a fascinating show, really.

Untitled
I know I always say this, but it was nice to leave my desk.

Untitled
Dinner Wednesday night. Out to grab some dinner at the Mituswa food court plus do some shopping.

Untitled
Untitled
Noodle cam.

Untitled
Untitled
Fake food, my favorite thing.

Untitled
Untitled
I got the tendon with extra shrimp that I usually get, plus a bowl of hot soba (I’ve never tried soba intentionally hot before). I am suspicious the owners have changed….the batter on the tempura seems different. Still tasty though, just not as phenomenal as a few years ago.

Untitled
Untitled
Blurry weird photo of my meats and Zach on his way out to a comedy show.

Untitled
Untitled
Kiki drove me back to my place and we played some Mario Odyssey.

Untitled
Untitled
Good morning! Happy Thursday.

Untitled
Trying to like my face again *sigh* I feel like I’m re-going through puberty and really self-conscious of my face recently.

Untitled
Untitled
Tristan came over and we finally resumed the #TristyWatchesGoT journey.

Untitled
Friday!

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Caught a beautiful sunset as I was leaving the office.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
I wasn’t feeling *super* well, I was worried I was catching the flu that everybody seems to have gotten. I decided to go home and rest.

Untitled
Untitled
Made some shin ramen at home.

Untitled
Started End of the F**king World (thanks for your suggestion, Jamie!) which I’m really digging so far.

Untitled
Working on powering through editing for these product shots.

Untitled
Untitled
Was up pretty late, almost till 2am. But I finished the product shots! *Yessss*

Untitled
Saturday morning dog walk

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Decided I needed to get my shit in order and clean the apartment, especially my stove which always seems to get and stay dirty.

Untitled
Also I’m finally gluing this!!

Untitled
It was knocked off the wall accidentally and broke, and the wall looks so empty without it.

Untitled
Cleared the living room to set up for a portrait shoot with the jeweler I’ve been working with.

Untitled
Untitled
My skin has been terrible, but at least my pants are so comfortable.

Untitled
Clean at last.

Untitled
Untitled
~Shooting~

Untitled
Untitled
~More shooting~

Untitled
After shooting, I walked to Target to get some stuff. Mostly boring household things that I’ve been putting off replacing.

Untitled
Untitled
Back home with the afternoon and evening to myself. I put on some Mitski and decdied to tackle a tonkatsu recipe my mom sent to me.

Untitled
Untitled
*Derp* What have I gotten myself into!

Untitled
The chaos

Untitled
Untitled
Getting ready to deep fry for the first time.

Untitled
Is the glue dry yet?

Untitled
Ambiance. My new candle I got on clearance at Target ha.

Untitled
It came out!!!!! Want to see the full tonkatsu recipe and journey? Check out my last post, the first “Yonsei Cooking.”

Untitled
File management, sexy!

Untitled
I wish I could get as comfortable as Tweedy looks all the time.

Untitled
It’s back up!!! I spent the rest of the evening treating myself to the first season of Orange is the New Black. I know I’m like…years late on this. But obsessed so far.

Untitled
Untitled
Happy Sunday! Off to see my parents.

Untitled
Also need to return this…accidentally purchased the wrong size.

Untitled
Untitled
Frick! It’s closed.

Untitled
Untitled
Made it to Little Tokyo.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Breakfast and family time.

Untitled
Untitled
Jill!

Untitled
Untitled
Was nice to spend time with my parents outside of the house, let them breath a little on the town ahah.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
After I got home, Kiki stopped by to quickly shoot more casual jewelry photos for my freelance job. I promised some shots that could be used on her Instagram, so we made sure to get some away from the studio.

Untitled
Untitled
Spent Sunday evening working on some illustrations (4 for Mindy!) and one for Lauren that I’m still ~in progress~ on.

Untitled
Untitled
Still havn’t fully put away my lights, I just want to be sure that my jewelry job is complete.

Untitled
What’s for dinner?

Untitled
Untitled
Preview of the next “Yonsei Cooking.” Not as photogenic as the last but tasty!

Untitled
Sunday evening

Untitled
My colleague tagged me in that black and white challenge thing on Instagram, it ended up being really fun to think back to the basics in black and white.

Untitled
Untitled
Sunday night…surprise surprise…more editing! This time for an infant photography job + OITNB in the background. What a contrast.

I must say, it was *such* a nice weekend to myself. Playing music, cooking, working and feeling productive, spending quality time with myself on my own timeline. I feel refreshed! Hope your week is going well…

Much love friends!

  3. omg that panko is GLUTEN FREE?! I commented in your last post but only just noticed now!

    I have coeliac disease and enjoyed your post but wrote it off because I’ve never found gluten free panko breadcrumbs in my life and I felt jaded at the thought of using ~~normal~~ breadcrumbs. Let us hope and pray that these make their way to England soon!

  4. Have you tried coconut oil for your eczema? Or products that contain coconut oil? I’ve heard that it helps people manage flare ups and the itchiness (I don’t have eczema myself to give you a testimonial). Also, I’d love to order a print from you but I don’t remember the website you linked to. P.S. I also love the clearance candles from Target! lol
