d-i-y calligraphy dipped inks

During my spare time, or if I feel stressed out, you’ll see me getting a piece of paper, my holder and opening bottles of ink and I’ll start writing.

I’m a self taught calligrapher. I first started to explore calligraphy when my workmate introduce this to us. Of course, because I love diy and wanted to have a diy wedding someday, I decided to start learning calligraphy.

I was almost gave up because, really, it’s so frustrating and not fun — well, at first.

Let’s jump to this day.. So after a year, I’ve already improved. And currently I’m trying to make my own metallic inks.

Picture above shows my diy blue and silver inks. I decided to use a black paper to enhance the metallic effect of the inks. I’m still in the process of exploring and discovering on ways to create a perfect calligraphy ink. So far, Im quite happy with the outcome, but I know there’s still ways to improve the diy inks. These are water based btw. 😀

Botejyu – Okonomiyaki

I was alone in the mall, running some things for myself. Then I stumbled upon this restaurant — Botejyu. It’s already my habit to check tomato.com and read reviews before I try to dine in to a new restaurant. I’ve read that the place caters authentic Japanese foods, specifically for okonomiyaki. With the said “good” reviews, I decided to enter the restaurant. I wasn’t able to take a snapshot of the place, my bad! But it’s a cool place, a little classy, good for  couple date, friends and family date.

When I was given a good seat, as pov, the waiter given me a menu. And since the place is know for okonomoyaki, ofcourse, I scanned through the page of okonomiyaki.

While waiting for my order, these containers caught my eyes. A side full of condiments. Who would want to have an unlimited bonito flakes / okonomoyaki sauce and NORI?! The NORI widen my eyes as usually, I would need to add additional bills for an extra nori. haha!

After 15 mins, my food arrived. Okonomiyaki was served with a separated bowl of rice and kimchi. I guess the server got too excited and cut the food in 4’s.  The egg was half cooked , which I didn’t like because I don’t eat raw eggs.

With that said, because I didn’t like the raw eggs, I showered my food with lots of nori. haha. — As you can see below. I also poured lots of okonomiyaki sauce, which really complements the food — ooohhh so good!! *__*

And if you’ll ask me why it is worth it….

While munching on the okonomiyaki, there were several whole shrimps scattered in my order. Who wouldn’t like that?!

Hi – Hellos

Just to set things straight, I am new in blogging. To start, I guess this is basically what most starters do, make an introduction post.

From the page title itself, “MissyAwhereAbouts” – this page will have several topics. And all of them are about MissyA. As much as possible, I would try to capture every moments to be able to share what MissyA sees from her sight. Most of the posts won’t be sugar coated, so yeah, expect some rude comments as well. Transparency at its finest.

Join me as I curiously explore the world until I find the light that may captivates me into writing.
