On Life and some GoT

First of, let me warn you that this post might contain different topics as I've got too many things stored in my mind right now. It might even contain spoilers from the last Game of Thrones season as I've been a fan of the show ever since it started. So I might talk about it here as well so I'm warning you. If you don't want spoilers... stay away now. :)

Before I dive further into GoT, some life updates first... so I just turned a year older last month and ever since my post last June, I've done quite a few things. It was my first time to receive a commission to make an amigurumi (crochet doll) bear which will be used as props for a baby photography business. Since I've never done this before, it took me a long time to create my own pattern. Fortunately, I made a few adjustments from a previous pattern I made (bunny pattern) so that made it a bit easier.

I, my friends Nanz and Tin also went to Divisoria last month to buy some craft materials (for me at least). The two of them bought more stuffs though. They bought LOTS of stationary items since we're kinda obsessed with them right now. LOL I on the other hand only bought 2 (a notebook for my niece and a planner for me) since most of my money went to the crochet yarns  because I need to stock up for future projects.

After that wonderful experience (not really haha because it's really humid that day), we watched Finding Dory because hello childhood! We've been waiting for this for a long time! I did enjoy the movie except that this kid sitting beside me is too noisy and his shoes is like blinking lights whenever he walks (he does a lot of walking btw), and his mother didn't even know how to discipline her child. I love kids but this kid needs some disciplining...

I also had a post-birthday lunch with my besties Roxy and Nanz in this cool art restaurant one jeepney ride from where I live.

with  Roxy

and Nanz

The place was introduced to us by Roxy who lives closer to this amazing place. I brought another friend here prior to this meet up who also loves art. I'm thinking of selling my artworks on this place too but not this year though. I want to hone my artistic skills first haha. If I have time, I'll make a separate post about this place too.

Now, let's shift to the fandom that I belong... Game of Thrones! the last 2 episodes, Battle of Bastards and Winds of Winter were AWESOME! The cast and crew did an amazing job and you can definitely see just by watching it, the effort they did to make these episodes look like they were made for movie. My favorite part of the 9th episode was the battle scene (because that's what I love best in a fantasy/war show...hello LOTR). The scene when Jon Snow almost drowned from the dead bodies blocking him literally made me worry as we don't want him to be dead again right?

That LOTR moment as well... oh my! Remember the gandalf saves the day moment from LOTR Two Towers? It was the same feeling when those soldiers from House Arryn riding horses came galloping over Bolton's forces. As for the last episode of season 6... my favorite scene there was when Daenerys appointed Tyrion as the Hand of the Queen. It was such a great moment and I couldn't be happier for him. He deserves to be wanted and not be cast aside like what his own family did to him.

Whew! This post is getting long already. So there you go, my whole update for the past weeks. I'm not sure what to do after this. Maybe I'll do some crochet work and study patterns, maybe I'll draw or do some hand lettering exercises. I don't know. I'll figure it out.

Hope you have a wonderful day/night wherever you are! :)
