Anonymous asked: HM is the shipping fee from taobao basically?

I don’t order directly from taobao, I use an agent. You pay 2 shipping fees. One to ship from the china merchant to your agent, and one to ship from the agent to you. You can see the in-china shipping fee under the taobao item title. The agent shipping fee is calculated by your agent. For about 1-2kg worth of items shipped from the capital region of the Philippines to my region, it’s around P400-500, especially if it’s bulky like shoes.

Based on experience, most in-china shipping is 5-10 RMB per item. Agent shipping depends on your country/region/agent.

DIY Comic Book “Sound Effect” Plush: Scrap Felt and Yarn Project

Hello, here’s a DIY post from me in what seems like forever. These photos have been sitting in my computer for a really long time and I feel bad that I never got around to posting them, so even though I’m super busy I’m forcing myself to sit down and write a blog post because I’ll never get around to it if I keep putting it off! (Lol, look at me fighting procrastination with procrastination. This terrible combination will never end well, Jad. Never.)

I made this little comic book plush because I have bags of scrap yarn lying around as well as random bits of felt that I can’t use for bigger projects. I wanted to use up my scrap orange and yellow felt without having to resort to the usual suggestions like a bowl for buttons or a coaster or a pincushion. Can’t I recycle and be pop-culture relevant at the same time? *shakes fist

ANYHOO. Here’s what you need:

Anonymous asked: Hello! I would like to dye my hair purple over my medium/ light brown hair. I would not be using bleach. Would this work? What hair dye would you recommend? This would also be my first time dyeing my hair a "unnatural" or "rainbow type" color. Thanks!

People give Directions Plum good reviews (it’s very pigmented and it shows well on unbleached hair). I’ve used it myself. It’s a kind of brownish purple, so google picture reviews first to see if it’s for you.

Anonymous asked: Hi Jad! From what Taobao Store do you buy your shoes from? Thanks

I think it was Queen City for the creepers, but I forgot what store I got the boots from (they’re in Engrish so I forget them quickly). But there are so many clones of each store, I’m sure you won’t have a hard time finding similar ones for the kind of shoes you want to buy. :)

I have two new blank journals, unlined. This makes me unreasonably happy. *sniffs paper

Couldn’t sleep so I wrote a new song under my solo project name, Wayward Comet. For people who go through the motions, like clockwork.

this m▲chine

Every day we open our eyes
every day we take a breath
are you just a gear in the wheel
is this just a rattling cage

Funny how life kicks you in the gut
Funny how you can’t look me in the eye
When everything hangs in the balance of us
This Machine of you and I
You and I

Oh this machine of you and I
Oil the words and try
not to break down on me
Inside of this machine

Cos we owe it to ourselves
to fix the pieces
And we, we can never stop
We can never sleep
inside of this

Cos we owe it to ourselves
to fix the pieces
And we, we can never stop
We can never sleep
inside of this machine

{we can never sleep
inside of this)
(every day we open our eyes
every day we take a breath)

machine of you and I
machine of you and I

machine of you and I

machine of you and I

Did the soundtrack for this Davao-based indie film. Still working on other bits of the score for the other scenes. :D

Anonymous asked: what is your hair color?

There are several colors in my hair. The top layer is Lagoon Blue. The bottom is Cerise.

We’re not allowed to take pictures in the dialysis unit but we managed to sneak in a photo anyway, because I don’t get to take selfies with my sister anymore!
