In for Ombre!

I have been thinking about getting ombre hair for a long time, yet I kept doubting if it would look good on me. Bleaching your hair is a big decision, because it is gonna damage your hair severely. Your hair will feel like grass and bundle up in a mess when you wash it. I wasn't sure if I had the patience to deal with damaged hair, plus getting ombre in salons is really expensive. But you know what, I will be going into the "real world" soon, and I won't have any more chances to kill my hair, so why not now? 
Soooo, I finally did it!

I initially asked for a grey ombre, but it turns out to be a bit green in the middle and blue at the bottom, which is also fine with me. 
To achieve this color, my hair was bleached two times and then colored. The color I requested was much lighter than this, but it would take three bleaching and I just don't have the money and time for that. If you do it at the salon, it would normally be around $100- $150 for one treatment. So I would say I wish I knew how to do this on my own! Haha My stylist at Maya did a fine job though, so I am not complaining.

With the expectation of getting grassy hair, I have already prepared myself with oil treatment products. Hopefully, they will reincarnate my hair. 

Stay tuned! Chao!

Experiencing Nepal :Durbar Squares

James Blunt - Bonfire Hearts


Taking a tour into the cities of Kathmandu and Patan, to discover the three famous Durbar Squares and the Monkey Temple of Nepal. It was not surprising to learn that they have all been listed as World Heritage Sites, given that they are almost a thousand years old and still looking magnificent. 

Patan Durbar Square

Legend says that the golden bird above the statue's head is the symbol of the King. The locals believe that as long as the bird is still there, the King still lives in the palace.

Nepal is a poor country where their national income heavily rely on tourism. Streets are often overwhelmed with tourists, children begging for money and natives selling carry-on goods. But even if they don't have much, they still look happier than most of us who live comfortably in the city.
We criticize China for manufacturing cheap, fake electronics, while Nepalis admire the Chinese for providing 1kg of iphones for just 10USD. Fake or not, it is communication, and it is all we need.

Ville de Québec

Québec City, the capital of Québec province, is located on the North shore where St. Lawrence river meets the Riviere Saint-Charles. The city's name derived from the Algonquian word meaning 'narrowing of the river'. Québec City is one of the oldest cities in North America with lots of places being World Heritage Sites including the 'Historic District of Old Québec', and the Plains of Abraham.

Goodbye Québec City!


Parliament of Canada

The Parliament of Canada was originally a military base in the 18/19 century and it became under governmental use after Queen Victoria chose Ottawa as Canada's capital city. As beautiful as it seems to be, most parts of the Central building were actually burned down in 1916, the only remaining original piece is the library. The library is glamorous but unfortunately photography is not allowed inside the building, so you would have to see it for yourself!
