Black Lace and a Girls Night Out
Posted on Tuesday, January 10, 2012 | 6 Comments
I went out on a girls night for dinner and some karaoke on Saturday and I finally decided to bring my camera out along with me :) We went to Hapa Umi for food and Cashbox in Richmond for all you can sing karaoke.
Did you know? All you can sing karaoke is only $8/person from 12:00am-2:30am... every day of the week! Suh-weet! Plus, if you happen to be a TA at Simon Fraser University, you get another 40 or 50% off?! I knew I should've applied last semester =_______="
I'm gonna start off the post with outfits, since I haven't done this in a while LOL. Don't mind the piece of cardboard I'm standing on. My house is carpeted--and you know how Asians feel about wearing shoes indoors, ahaha.
I realized while writing this entry that my outfit was almost entirely pieced together with clothes from Forever 21. Funny how things work sometimes...
Garage denim shorts (old); black tights; Yesstyle lace-up ankle boots (old)
I think I should sport the tights and booties look more often. I love what the combo does to elongate my legs :D
Front view so the owl necklace can be seen :)
It's a little nippy outside in the middle of winter so I threw on a black faux-leather jacket and a black circle scarf.

Hapa Umi was an alright restaurant. Good atmosphere and nice ambiance, but I much prefer its sister company, Hapa Izakaya. I think they were going with a more upscale feeling with this restaurant, because they didn't sell beer by the pitcher :( Thus, rather than getting a pitcher of Sapporo to share between everyone, we had to get large bottles of Asahi instead.
Shortrib lettuce wrap
Heritage angus beef tataki
Salmon salsa battera
We also got a UBC roll (which I didn't snap a picture of in time) and a bacon and kimchi ishiyaki (which had to be mixed immediately). I wouldn't recommend the latter because the stone bowl wasn't hot enough, which meant no crispy rice :(
After dinner there was dessert! Homemade cupcakes from Anita! She's so awesome; she's won my heart through baked goods <3
...I'm so easy u_u"
I am sooo trying out the recipe for the mini cheesecake cupcakes to the left. They were sooo scrumptious <3
Anita, me, Eva, and Tori. Sadly, we're missing Amy, who had left before we thought to cam-whore
At karaoke~ Didn't realize until writing this that the order was reversed here, LOL
Hope you all had an awesome start to 2012! Cheers to a new year :)
