I apologize for my eyebags and minimal makeup. I have been wanting a cleaner face, so I have only been sporting makeup on the eyelids and lip. My skin needs to breathe a little you know!
Before I go on about my post title, a mini haul needs to be shown! I have been ordering items online, so keep an eye out for reviews and haul posts!

I am sure by now, no one is foreign to Daiso! The much raved-about mask peel was an instant grab, and there seemed to be matching (design) blotting sheets, so I grabbed it as well.
Tried it and I love it! The size is more square, so each sheet was bigger than the usual travel-size packs.
Something a lot of reviewers online seemed to have overlooked were the directions. I have seen several reviews in which people used this as a face peel, but in fact it states to apply to the nose! I am sure it makes little difference, but I would not want to pull a strong adhering mask from my face.. mostly because it may cause loose/saggy skin in the future! That is perhaps my own personal paranoia though.
Now for some FOOD I have been having!

|Coffee with panna cotta (Deb's) and Matcha Latte with panna cotta (mine)|
And of course, finishing up with RAMEN! My mom was craving some so we had to go to Shinsengumi again.. (haha)

AND NOW I BRING YOU SCIENCE!
|Obiwon and I|
I went to the Califonia Science Center with Obiwon this past weekend, and had quite a wonderful time! I have not been there since I was in elementary school!
It totally makes sense that it is located right next to USC. This science museum displays a bit of everything related to science. Though it is geared more towards the younger generation in hopes to inspire some children to pursue a career in science, it was quite enjoyable as an adult as well! About half of the area was to stimulate a child's mind, and the other have was for viewing pleasure.
My top 3 favorite areas while there are..
1. Extreme Zone
Ever since I got Talon, I have grown a soft spot for reptiles. Though many argue that relationships cannot be formed with these cold-blooded animals as one would normally with a dog or cat, I still believe it could happen! Lizards are fascinating to me!
2. Forest Zone

One of my favorite things to see would have to be life underwater. I am personally afraid of water heights and I cannot swim, but life in the water is fascinating!
This is how big it is. I felt like we were taking photos of the Millennium Falcon.
For those of you who are not too familiar with the shuttle, here are some brief facts:
- First service mission to the Hubble Space Telescope
- Assembled the Unity Module the first U.S. component of the International Space Station
- Carried the first African-American female astronaut into space (Mae Jemison), the first Japanese astronaut in the shuttle program (Mamoru Mohri) the first married couple to fly on the same space mission (Mark Lee and Jan Davis)
- On Endeavour's first spaceflight, four spacewalks were completed in a single shuttle mission, which had never been done before.
It is amazing what science has done for us! Do visit the Science Center when you can! Entry is free, and seeing Endeavor is only $2. There is also a beautiful rose garden outside, right next to the Natural History Museum!
Then weekend ended with a light meal from Urth Cafe..
