NTU Fest '14/ Being a Fangirl

/edit 22 Aug: Added some of my own shots taken at the event at the end!

Is it even apt for me to term myself as a fangirl, given my age now?
Okay I'm not that old I know but I guess going to a concert & seeing boisterous young girls going crazy does something to your thoughts. 

The event on Saturday was sorta like a mini-excursion for us.
A bunch of girls, gossiping, chatting the time away.. But coupled with the bonus of seeing our favourite oppa.
We were more mellow compared to the first few times we saw him, now it's all anxious waving instead of full-on screaming.
I guess we are getting older, aren't we? (But hey! Mr Kang is more of our age group no?)

Mr. Kang does look happier this time though, all the full-on smiling and smirks (Oh my fangirl feels lol)
(I wonder if he remembers my signboard, he was staring at it lol... Looks like bringing it to every event works!)

My own pictures aren't ready yet: these are from TNP Backstage, by Gavin foo.
Amazing pictures though, and for my own keepsake I'd thought I'll put them here. 
Maybe I'll add my own pictures next time. For now, enjoy these of Mr. Kang Gary (& Jung In, who has amazing, amazing vocals.)


Kang Gary's not always the man you see on Running Man. 
The Kang Gary on stage excludes this charm that is different to the one you see on variety. He loses himself to the beat & rhythm of the music so easily & readily, it makes you drunk in the same manner. 
When he sways with the music, the looks he gives you is enough to do the same.
Part of his attraction is how he looks like a bad boy but is actually a good boy at heart. 
Oh, the point that he's not bad looking either? That helps.

As usual. All shots below are taken by me. It would be impossible for me to upload all 625 shots of the event here, but I would be happy to offer you the Dropbox folder link. Just drop me an email & I'd assist.

Please also do not remove my watermarks. I appreciate people enjoying them as much as I did taking them, but not taking credit for them at my expense.

All pictures can be enlarged by clicking on them.

Sometimes he's the cheeky boy you see in variety. Just sometimes.

I really, really, like this shot. I've always loved him smiling so happy, especially when his cheekbones show. I think it's absolutely adorable.

See? Just like a little boy. I wonder sometimes if it's just my maternal instincts talking...

Mokona the bunny

The very first time before I held her in my arms, I didn't know rabbits could be so cuddly.
Prior to this, I've never owned a rabbit before. I've had hamsters, house mice, fishes and terrapins, but not bunnies.

When she is on my chest looking at me with those grey eyes, I feel like giving her all I have.
I guess it's an indication of how I'll be a mom next time wtf. (Read: Spoil my kids rotten)

We got her on the 1st of August (Just yesterday!) and I wanted to document things a bit, so here I am.
As usual, please go to my dayre for almost daily updates.

Ah, as I'm typing this Mokona (That's the name we decided to give her.. :) is giving me the puppy-eyed look cos she wants to come out and play..
I've put her back in her cage as my mom's back and I don't want her to run around with Mom's bigfoot squishing her lol.

Short intro about her: Mokona is a 3 month old pure-breed Netherlands Dwarf with grey eyes.
Some shots of her I managed to get today - she's still quite shy about her surroundings, being new here.
But I've seen her do a binky today, and it's the most adorable thing. (Apart from her licking me, that's cute too. And and her sniffing on my chest!! And... okay I'll stop rambling wtf.)

Her name is drawn from the anime, Tsubasa Chronicles. Google it if you're interested!

Mokona's quite the timid bunny - but then again I think all bunnies are timid, easily scared by large noises.

The first few days she was here, everytime I'd sit by her cage she would stop and look at me with these eyes, because she was still nervous about having me around.

Everytime she sees me open the top latch she gets ridiculously happy, bouncing around the cage. Bunnies need to be fed an unlimited amount of hay daily, for their nutrition needs, and for their teeth.

Hi babygirl! Sometimes she just sits there so obediently and lets me stroke and pet or take pictures of her. It's really adorable when she licks me, it's like she's saying, 'Continue the stroking, human!'
