Craving inedible food

I’ve been quiet for the past few days, mostly bed-ridden at home due to a nasty case of food poisoning. In the meanwhile, I’ve been resting in bed watching Miyazaki movies and decorating my toy cameras.


This little plastic camera takes dreamy photos, especially when the sun’s out.


Sprinkle donuts, meringue, strawberry wafer, ice cream, custard pudding, and cake..

Such carefully prepared inedible bento box meal:

Dessert:

It’s silly how easily we forget how important it is to be healthy. And I have every reason to get better quickly–two good friends arriving from Beijing late tonight and our big trip around the Yunnan Province.

Take care, everyone! Drink plenty of water and try to make time to cook yourself a healthy meal.

    Oh, poor you! Food poisoning is something horrible! I have often problems with my stomach, so I can understand how you must feeling! Get better soon! I also can’t wait to get healthy again, have many things in head that I would like to do. One of it is to go to the park and feed squirrels 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Thank you for the well-wishes! I woke up feeling better, and I’m already planning a full day out for myself. I’m definitely headed to the park this morning. 🙂

    I’m sorry you’re feeling bad! I wish you a speedy recovery! Massive amounts of green tea + orange juice is typically how I get over sickness. I hope you feel better and enjoy your trip :]

    And nomnomnom, those cameras look good enough to eat haha.

    Ugh! Food poisoning :c I thought I had some recently but turns out it was just a demonic stomach virus. I feel your pain!!!

    In any case your cameras look AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING and I may copy you on it. Though toy camera has yet to be checked off my “to buy” list. But seriously, those look SO perfect ahhh.

      Gah, the stomach virus sounds nasty, too.

      You should do it! It was really fun and relaxing to sit down and put fake icing on my cameras… 🙂

    I so agree with you about being healthier. Right now I am doing vitamins (gasp!) A few of them help with my metablism and energy level. Sometimes the end of the day, I simply have no energy.

    You made the camera very pretty. Very creative.

    I had food poisoning once. I had to go to the emergency room. Big mistake. Health insurance in America almost got me bankrupt…and I have health insurance. That’s another story, though. I hope you feel better sooner than later.

      I carried a huge bottle of vitamins from Virginia, and I’m still taking them. Ah, that sounds like a pretty bad food poisoning experience!

    I hope you get well soon! It’s always great to be in bed watching Miyazaki movies they tend to make me feel better whenever I feel ill or down. I love how you decorated your toy cameras. Have fun with your Friends! <3

    Being healthy is the most important thing.
    Being happy is even more important but being healthy helps with that.

      Ah, it’s really an awful experience, especially when you really love meal-times! Ah, I’m glad you’re not sick anymore, too. Haha, your dad sounds great. 🙂

      P.S. You should take one home!

    Your camera is lovely! And, I really enjoy reading about your travel in China.
    By the way, I am seriously impressed by the bento box meal but curious if they are eatable.
    Take care of yourself as well:)

    Food poison will definitely knock the wind out of you (and more.) Hope you start feeling 100% again soon.

    Amazing, amazing deco-job on the camera! The best I’ve ever seen, wow!

    I am obsessed with those fake miniature food videos – mostly because I admire the youtuber’s patience.

    I hope you feel better soon!

    I’ve been working so hard that I have been eating a lot of really shitty food…planning on making a ton of food over the weekend to last me throughout the week!
