Thank you Youtube makeup gurus for making my life easier.

Also, I got really good comments last Friday when I did the Perfect Winged Eyeliner. It’s super easy and it might just be my default eyeliner style. I used a gel liner in pencil form which is easier than using a gel liner from a pot. Will post pictures when I get around to taking them at work.

I haven’t updated anything in 2 months. I cannot believe that I did that! Anyway, I have a lot of interesting things to share but I never got to because I became a little tad too busy. Anyway here’s a quick roundup of my life before I get too lazy, again.

  1. I got a new job. Woohoo! I started last August 13 and it’s been crazy trying to adjust and stuff. I got a little overwhelmed with how much work I had to do because I’m not really used to working as much. (I came from a company where I only code around 4 to 5 hours a day, instead of 8). I did come to my new job when there were a lot of new thing to learn and cram, and deadlines to catch only to get side tracked by typhoons and floods. Crazy.
  2. But I eventually got the hang of it, and I’m really getting along well with my new workmates :D
  3. I’m loving my new office location. It’s in Eastwood so I get to shop and hang around more with the boyfriend who kinda lives 15 minutes away.
  4. It’s also somehow nearer where I live. I was able to cut my commute time to around an hour and a half less from my old Makati commute. 
  5. And less commute time means more time for crafting.
  6. Anyway, on the crafting side of things, I started a lot of WIPs. And most of them are all still WIPs. I should start sharing but I really, really soon.
  7. I also bought a lot of yarns from Chumpling Crafts before they closed their store. 
  8. I now have a lot of yarn and no place to store them, so
  9. I will really, really de-stash really, really soon. It’s a promise. 
  10. And the biggest highlight of the 2 months I skipped blogging, I traveled to Seoul, South Korea. Probably the highlight of my 2013. I have a lot of photos and stories to share. It will take more than one post per day to share my adventures and shopping finds! Haha.

And to end this post, here is a photo of me in Korea, looking really happy and really, really white under all that sunlight. Haha.

I am travelling to Seoul, South Korea in September! I am very, very excited to share this piece of news to you because this trip will mark a lot of firsts for me. First trip abroad. First trip that I will finance on my own with my hard-earned money. I am travelling with my mom and we decided, to share the expenses, to be fair because I am already working. Haha.

Anyway, I’d like to share a guide on how to apply and secure yourself a Korean visa, based from my experience. 

1. Prepare all the necessary requirements

THE BASICS

  • Application form that is completely filled out and duly signed. The form can be downloaded here.
  • Passport sized photo with white background
  • Original passport with 6 months validity
  • Photocopy of the first page of your passport (information page)
  • If available, original and photocopy of valid visas and arrival stamps to OECD member countries (U.S.A., Canada, Australia, Japan, etc) in the past 5 years.

FOR EMPLOYEES

  • Original Certificate of Employment
  • Photocopy of Income Tax Return (Form 2316) 
  • Original Personal Bank Certificate 

FOR FAMILIES

  • For couples, a photocopy of NSO Certified Marriage Certificate
  • For families, photocopy of NSO Certified Birth Certificate (of the children)

A complete list of the visa requirements for other types (like students) can be found here.

TIPS

  • When filling out the form, print legibly and avoid erasures. Make sure that your handwriting is as readable.
  • If you already have reserved accommodations, please write the address and phone numbers in the form.
  • Bank certificates are requested and takes around 30 minutes to an hour to process. BPI charges P100 for a copy, auto-debited to your account.

Work-In-Progress: Artfully Simple Infinity ScarfPattern

It’s so simple, it’s almost an art. This is probably the easiest scarf/crochet project I have ever made. Period.

Perfect for beginners! All you have to know are the basics: crochet chain, single crochet and double crochet. No gauge required. The pattern even allows you to make mistakes. It’s also done in the round so you learn it as well. 

Make this for you’re looking for instant gratification, beginner or not. You can make this scarf while watching your favorite shows. Before

It is perfect for gifting as well. Now that is an idea I really like.

P.S. I just started working on this when I took these photos a week ago. Now, as I continually work on this while watching Sherlock (for the nth time), it has grown to 20+ rows and I’m still not stopping.

Colonial Hand Crochet Shorts - Ravelry entry | Pattern hack by yours truly

It’s my biggest, most ambitious project to date. I love it. I take it every time we go to the beach.

Will post photos of myself wearing this when I finally get the nerve to do so. Haha. 

Here’s to wishing I have more nerves. And I can’t wait to make new shorts!

Mock Cables Kindle Cover - Pattern

It’s a sad, sad day when I finally decide to let go of a project. But oh well. I now have a mantra that if I haven’t picked up a project in 2 months, it’s time to frog it.

Good bye knitted Kindle cover.
