1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Yellow dress on: July 08, 2009 07:18:36 PM
My lovely boyfriend bought me this yellow sun dress that I absouloutly adore!
the problem is its so low cut I really can't wear it without something under it.
it looks like this
Except the open part goes all the way down till the waist.
I can't wear a bra underneith it without it showing through because its really thin cotton, same reason I won't go commando in it.
I've considered my bikini top, but would someone give me some advice? would a natrual bra with some fashion tape work? (My chest is large, so gravity and all...)
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / I can or can't have meat yakisoba. on: June 30, 2009 06:18:20 PM
I love to cook.
And my family loves Asian food from all countries. So when my older brother approached with this recipe, I took it on full force.
Now this can be modified to fit your dietary needs! =D <.< though I am certainly sure it has lots of calories...
Yakisoba, the ultimate comfort food!
You're going to need a Wok for this, if you cook for more than two people.

This version serves four-six.

3 bags of yakisoba noodles (they come prepackaged, with a little spice packet, just throw the spice packets away, you won't need them)
2 bundles of green onions
4-6 cloves of garlic
1 small-medium ginger root
1 small green cabbage
2 long carrots
1 pound chicken
1/3 cup Sake
1/4 cup sake
a splash of sesame oil
a splash of soy sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
Cornstarch, however thick you want the sauce to be, I use 1 tablespoon.
a splash of cooking sherry

Cut your chicken into cubes.
Put chicken into glass bowl.
Mince the Garlic.
place with chicken in glass bowl.
pour the 1/4 cup of sake over it. Now its a party.
splash it wish some soy sauce.
Then splash it with some sesame oil.
Mix it up so the chicken is well covered.
Cover and place in fridge.

Put your wok on medium high heat.

Cut your vegetables.
add a LITTLE bit of cooking oil of your choice to wok.
Turn the heat up to high.
add veggies, cabbage first, carrots, then green onions last. (go by the thickness of the veggie, cabbage takes longer to cook, then the carrots, then the green onions.)
Once those are all nice and cooked (the cabbage will be limp), place them into a clean bowl.

Bring chicken forth from the fridge.
don't bother adding oil to the wok this time
just pour the chicken into the wok, Cover it leaving a small gap for steam to escape.
Stir occasionally.

in yet another seperate clean bowl.
Add salt, cornstarch, and sugar.
Then soy sauce, sake, sherry
Whisk it until the corn starch is dissolved (there will be none on the bottom, the liquid will be a nice caramel color)
Pour it over the chicken that has been cooking for the past five-ten minutes (it should be almost done by this time)
Add in veggies and stir.

Open noodle packets, loosen noodles as directed by the back of the package. mine tell me to puncture their little self contained packets (noodles inside of a packet inside of another packet)
and microwave for 1 minute. I do 1 minute 30 seconds.

once those are done, add noodles to the cooking chicken, sauce (which should be thickened by now), and veggies.

Take it off the heat and mix so the noodles are mixed with veggies and coated in the sauce.

The meat can be substituted with firm tofu.
Add any veggies you like, as long as they compliment the dish.

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Soldering?? :\ on: June 10, 2009 05:22:05 PM
So this whole question popped up in my mind when my boss saw my necklace I made ($2, found the parts at a thrift store) from clock parts.
well its held together with tacky glue and wire. Embarrassed
He got a closer look at it, seeing the wires and suggested that I take the approach of taking it apart and soldering the pieces together. <.< since my boss has the attention span of a goldfish, I didn't get a chance to ask him what it was.
What is it? and where do I find a tutorial? Huh
4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Jacket for boyfriend. on: May 31, 2009 03:52:18 PM
So I made a jacket for my lovely boyfriend, Ward, for an anime convention that happened back in april.
I must say, several broken needles was totally worth it, this was the easiest jacket I've ever sewn.
As you can see, he's cosplaying mid-boss from disgaea.
Here's the jacket:
