Sophie's B'day ♔ and Nepali Mela ☮

Got a Hello Kitty perfume for Sophiya's 15th with some helium balloons. Bought Mimi di the Love version of Harajuku Lovers. I did take pictures of the family momo party but seems like Sophie deleted them all ... BUT I do have the Nepali Mela pics to cover up for that :D Was awsome fun, way better than last year's. This time they had a separate youth stadium, so it was good :D We had this rally, where each group formed from a particular place or organisation in the UK wore traditional nepalese clothes. Me and Krisi wore Bakhus, lil bro dressed up in a Newari attire and Salil wore a Terai one.
Some more pictures
After the rally was over, we headed off for the live concert. Met Krija di. She looked soo cute in her skirt and cardigan. Too adorable, love her style.
Stole the pic above from Krisi's facebook :D so proud. Look at my yakuza smile, rofl
Oh yeah, and I noticed a lady with this really cute Harajuku free style dressup, like the ones from FRUITS magazine and I had to take a picture! 
Saw my cousin Akoon in her green sari. The two looking very pretty.
Then we met Reena di and Bishal bro, our backstage passes :D The band pictured below was friggin' awsome. Arghhhh sljad;ljasdfaj I forgot their name >_< but I think they competed in this year's battle of the bands
And after them, another band called Hades performed. I'm a greek myth freak and in my opinion, they sound just like their name. Opening number was a headbangin' hit. Awesome band.

Suit Up

Lil bro bought a new grey suit which seemed to go quite well with Ari's (ladies') bag...

Va-Va-Voom Volume!

So I've switched my shampoo cause my hair's thinning too much, and not long ago, my father commented on it saying he can see my scalp -_- So I got this Aussie Aussome Volume. There were loads to choose from but the phrase "for fine and limp hair" caught my attention, like it was calling me or something. I've been using Tigi for a while and it was real good, gave me the silk like effect I wanted and kept my hair untangled for quite a long time, but it didn't help with volumising. Anyway, I saw the ad for Aussie on LDN tubes, and since its been receiving great reviews, I said to myself, why the heck not? And it's more cost friendly with a £3.95 price tag in Boots against the £17.99 one for Bedhead Tigi Catwalk: Oatmeal & Honey. Plus the Aussie one's 2 in 1 shampoo & conditioner. So for a Scrooge (cheapo whatever -_- ) like me, it's an awesome deal, cause it does work! I'm not saying it magically transforms your hair into a 60's beehive or something, but it does make your hair feel more luscious and thicker but really light at the same time.
Speaking of shampoos, I'm a hairspray rookie. I used my mum's Tesco or TRESemmé (as my hair's also way frizzy) but my lil bro made a huge fuss about buying this got2b, which we ended up buying. Turns out, it does exactly as it says on the can/bottle. It only takes a little whiz of the spray to impress. So yeah, now I've gone past believing that hairsprays are only used to make your hair smell nice. And for those crazy asian hairstyles, got2b is a must buy. And of course, GATSBY too. Just cause its Japanese, and it smells like apple juice :)

Gaule Parties

The title says it all. Annual gatherings for villages you root from. You eat the usual BBQ, meet your cousins and wow; more distant relatives you've never even heard of before, get a bit bored, check out the guys and dolls, talk, talk, dance, take pictures, wave goodbye then leave for home. Me and my folks have to do this twice a year as they belong to two different districts. Its fun I suppose, you get to toughen up your Nepali spirit :)
 A cool little dude


Went to Devon for a family weekend getaway and stayed over at my parents' friends. Their place was in the middle of paradise, seriously. Damn big house! Felt so much like Nepal with all the greenary, and got to see some llamas too! Too bad I couldn't take a nice picture of them cause we saw them from so far :( because well, we were kinda afraid they were gonna spit on us. But yep, the trip was A-mazing! Afterwards we headed to Tiverton Town. Very big, the layout was similar to Bristol's, with the high street shops at one end and the branded ones at the other. And the TOPSHOP there was huge! :D Not like Reading's, but like at Bristol, not as big as the one in Oxford Circus and White City though, but nonetheless, loved it!
