Today I finally got round to doing my laundry (I wanted to build up a larger amount first since the machines are HUGE) and when I came back to load it into the dryer I found that some asshole had removed my washing and dumped it on one of the chairs and when I went to collect it from the dryer I found someone opening my dryer almost as if he was going to take my things out but thankfully he was just letting me know it was ready to take out since I went to stand outside because the little room was so packed. 
I actually feel a bit violated that someone had removed my washing though, I wouldn't mind so much if it was just my clothes but my my underwear was in there and it sickens me thinking someone has been through it.
So to whoever emptied the dryer with various pairs of underwear and the top with the mustaches on, don't do it again. I will be seriously pissed, don't make me do my washing twice because I will next time.

On a good note, I went to 88 Noodle Bar and thoroughly enjoyed my won ton noodle soup. For the size of the bowl, it was an absolute bargain at £4.20! Even though it is one of my ultimate food loves and I ALWAYS get seconds when I have this at home I found I could only just make it through 3/4 of the bowl, I felt like I was on Man V Food haha. 88 Noodle Bar, I will be back!

This time, Rachel salutes the victorious food!

The King is Back!

So recently I've been making my way through Highs and Lows 雷霆掃毒, a TVB crime drama series focusing a lot of drug trafficking Starring Micheal Miu, Raymond Lam, Elaine Ng, Ella Koon, Kate Tsui and Ben Wong.

Gordon Heung (Michael Miu), senior inspector of the Narcotics Bureau's Operations Wing, is forced to partake in illegal drug manufacturing and trafficking after a mysterious man threatened to reveal his friend's illegal money laundering if he refused. Heung's good friend and student, Senior Inspector Wai Sai-lok (Raymond Lam) of Narcotics Bureau's Intelligence Wing, begins to grow suspicious of Heung after finding some evidence that hinted at Heung's illegal activities during a drug bust. Heung's involvement with drug traffickers also gets leaked to Wai's rival, Chief Inspector Poon Hok-lai (Ben Wong) of the Operations Wing, who decides to use this chance to sever Heung and Wai's relationship. When Poon discovers that Wai had started a romance with his informant, Pat Chan (Kate Tsui), Poon gets in between their relationship and convinces Chan to leave Wai. He then indirectly exposes her to drug trafficking and consumption, and Chan eventually becomes one of the most powerful illegal drug traffickers in Hong Kong.
[From Wikipedia]

I really do wish he was paired with Ella though, I like their scenes together and they look cute together ^^ 

The last Raymond Lam series I watched was Three Kingdoms RPG [my post on Three Kingdoms RPG] and although he was likable he was pretty bring, Kenneth Ma's Wan Shun was more lovable to watch but Highs and Lows has rekindled my love for Raymond Lam, I absolutely LOVE him as Wai Sai Lok (Happy Sir)! Heck I'd get involved in narcotics if he was going to be the one to raid my place haha (just kidding, my mother would KILL me!) but really, he is such a fun, adorable character *love love love* I had forgotten how charismatic and yau ying Raymond is haha. I was once asked if I had a celebrity crush and at the time I couldn't provide an answer but now i can tell you it's most DEFINITELY Raymond! *drool* 


When revisiting his music since he sings the sub theme for Highs and Lows I found I did miss and still love his vocals. Love his songs so much ^^ oh, except 'Chok' where they tried to make it all hip hop, that was just silly, he's much better suited to ballads, and songs with meaning. Shall be investigating his new album Self Portrait fairly soonish, it might even be the first CD I buy in over six years haha

Grab Somebody Sexy

Just having a moment where I really wanted to listen to Give Me Everything By Pitbull ft Ne-Yo and wanted to see if I could find a nice cover and I stumbled upon a lovely collection of YouTube treasures I wanted to share!

Sam Tsui | "Best Songs Mashup 2011"

I'm usually quite neutral about mashups but this was beautifully blended and he has the most amazing voice


@Pitbull - Give Me Everything ft. @NeYoCompound ♡ @Pianistmiri ♧ Piano Cover

I ADORE the piano and this really made me wish that I could still play the piano (I probably can, but not well since I've not played for about 3 years). I'd love to be able to play this song like this.


Super Junior Henry Lau Give Me Everything Tonight Cover

I was actually kind of surprised by how good this was (no offence intended ^^' I just didn't expect him to sound like that since a lot of Asian singers have accented English.

The ordering is the order I found them in, just so you know but the piano cover is my favourite ;)

Excuse me, I might drink a little bit more than I should tonight

I'm very happy to have been able to spend time with David on his birthday (6th Oct - he came to visit for the week) ^^ we've always wanted to be able to spend our birthdays together!
My presents for him haven't actually arrived as of yet which I'm still pissed off about but I did make him a cake (which didn't live long enough for photos) but I can tell you it was a chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream and Custard Creams ^^ as well as other little gifts.

I missed him so much when I had t go in for my classes. I felt bad for leaving him all alone in my room. Bless him, he'd been 'sooo busy!' having spent the time snuggling in my bed, watching videos on youtube and various series and making himself look pretty. Being a Wifey is SUCH hard work! 

Did a trip to Spoons on Monday where Wifey discovered how beautiful the chips from there are.We also went out on Monday night to Camel with my flatmate and friend. It was an interesting night that didn't quite go as me and my boyfriend thought (we thought we'd all roll back to the flat absolutely wasted haha). Clubbing really isn't his kind of thing and I don't think it's quite grown on me yet either, I think I had more fun messing around back at the flat with the few pre-drinks and silly photos ^^'

Aren't we all just SO attractive xD
(Actually Wifey, you don look rather attractive in the first one ^^')

Everyone was wearing glasses, I no longer feel left out!


We didn't do a lot of drinking, we had 2 Blow Jobs (the shots xD) and 2/3 vodka and cokes(?) which be bought me bless him ^^ so there was no drunk or tipsy Rachel, there was some random old guy in there o___o and me and Wifey did some smexy dancing to Give Me Everything (lol, smexy dancing...I can't dance for shit but apparently he thought I looked seductive!). That was probably the most memorable song of the night. It's our song now to mark the first time we've been out together in a club!

So yeah, this is my favourite week up in Huddersfield so far! Even the crappy days like Monday afternoon didn't feel so bad since I knew he'd be there when I got back so we could just snuggle ^^ I loved my life
On the side, he was right, I lost the tea addiction that week, I only remember having about 2 cups of tea over the week he was here.
David, I miss you.

FINALLY a Good day!

Ohmahgawd...I have spent SO, SO MUCH of this week hating uni it's unbelievable! 'I hate my life' has actually become my little catchphrase, I should probably get it patented so no one can steal it :p
But anyway, today things finally changed and I enjoyed today! I was in 9:15am to 5:15pm but although today was a long day it has been the best day so far and to think I was dreading it!
Today was spent in the print and dye workshop. I was so happy to FINALLY be touching fabrics and so, so happy to be screen printing even though I hate washing up. I panicked a little bit as my purple pigment had started to stain the screen and was quite pissed off by the person behind me who made the snarky comment of 'oh have you never screen printed before'. I was just concerned about the strength of the pigment and about the screen but sir, you are rude!

Loved this print on this particular material. I wish I knew what it was called, I just know it kind of feels like a bandage, but thicker.

This has about three layers of prints on it but what I really love is how the fibres have stretched and how the photograph has captured that ^^

Felt like a right wifey when I went to Sainsbury today, he's coming over tomorrow *so excited* and can be hard to feed sometimes so i bought 'back up food' in case he really doesn't like what I've cooked, can't let him starve! I didn't think I bought that much stuff but it turned out nearly spent £15! I even had to put back the Willow Story mug. I remembered David's Grandma's one and really wanted it when I saw it even though I already have three mugs including the glass one and three tea cups.

Adding to the wifeyness was the cooking, I made myself quite the meal tonight.
One day I'm going to be such a cute little waifu! (But good god, not Mr Yan's!!! D:)

Stir fried chicken with red pepper and potatoes and lettuce with boiled rice. 
I remember that diet of light stir fries and steamed foods that I had after my eye operation and the wonders it did for my weight and figure so I'm going to try my best to do that again!

FINALLY (gotta stress all the finallys) got round to getting my flatmate Niamey to try on my blonde wig xD it was odd at first but then it did look quite nice on her and made us think of Niki Minaj but bless her, she felt like a tranny apparently ^^'

Scott also tried it on with scary results haha - I'm sure he'd make a pretty girl xD

I also HAD to try it on and started liking it too much and didn't really want to take it off haha

And FINALLY, thank you Frankie for being there for me when I was really hating my life last night and giving me advice and support, I really appreciate it! And from now on, let's hope I just keep loving my life!
