FOTD and a little update

I'm so lazy at updating this blog, it's not even funny.....

Anyways... this quarter started out as pretty intense. But I'm still in Winter Break Mood.... and I'm losing my motivation to study..... I really should push myself harder.

Here is a FOTD I did a few days a go.... I'm wearing the Geo World Series - Green circle lens from I'm not a huge fan of the color "green", but this color definitely stands out. Love it!

You can purchase these lenses at Lens Circle . Enter ECHOLI10 at check out for 10% discount.

Oh, why am I doing the sad face??? I went to ice skating with my friends during the Martin Luther King long weekend. I've only ice skated once before with the help of my friend. And I consider myself as extremely uncoordinated due to my long limbs..... On the way, all my friends were telling me how they are not very good at it. As soon as we walked into the ice skating place, they started skating right away and just disappeared. Meanwhile, I was holding onto the wall and trying to balance myself.

So as a result..... I fell 5 times, and I mean I fell hard!!! My friend was holding onto my hands to keep me balanced. Everytime I'm about to fall, I feel really bad dragging her down as well (which would have been so easy since she's a lot smaller than me), so I diverted my weight away from my hands, and landed on my knees all 5 times. By the 2nd time, it already felt like the skin around my knees were all wide open. I had so much ice on my knee area.... Although I got up just fine, it hurt so much to bend my knees that I just couldn't really enjoy the rest of the time skating. Man, it was embarrassing.

After I went home, I checked my knees. Didn't break any skin! But swollen and red as hell..... I iced it for the whole night.... but here is how my knees look like the day after.....

Brutal, right?

Do you know why bruises have different coloration?
1st - Red - due to oxygenated hemoglobin
Then... - Blue - due to deoxygenated hemoglobin
Then... - Green - due to biliverdin
Then... - Yellow - due to bilirubin (the same compound that stains our pee and poop yellow ;P)
Finally... -Golden-brown - due to hemosiderin

So age the bruise please! Ok... that was random

Btw, I just saw Avatar yesterday, yeah I know, talking about falling behind. It's awesome!!!! Best 2hr and 30 minutes ever!!! Totally see why everyone is raving about it!!! I love how the storyline emphasized on loving the mother nature and bonding with the animals. Also the theme of big corporation taking over smaller businesses...... The plot may be a little cliche.... but you can really feel the amt of effort the crew put in to make Pandora seem as realistic as possible. I was watching a video clip of how they filmed it..... the kind of technology is just insane..... Anyways.... I kind of wish that they will make a sequel.... but I guess it'll be kinda hard with the ending.

Oh well.... gotta go study some more medicine....


  1. Big bruises :o aaaw it must have hurt :/

  2. I just learned about that in class - the bruising thing - how our body heals our injured blood vessels :D Oh fun! AVATAR is amazing. Sorry about your knee. You should try falling on your butt next time. It wouldn't hurt as much. But I know what you mean - I suck at ice skating. But I have the excuse that I've lived in the desert for the past 12 years.

  3. wow i knew ice skating is dangerous lol. i only went once for my 18th bday and i never went back because the same thing happened to me =/ i fell a couple of time and seriously hurt my tail bone >.< hope it gets better quick =)

  4. Ouchhh ><
    The last time I went skating was back in gr.4. I'm sure I would have a hard time skating if I attempted it again.
