What’s Up #8 & October Plans & Suggestions?

Its time for the next What’s Up. I might start taking out the number versions soon and just keep it with themes of the video or something, if I can figure it out.

Either way, this week’s is a tad long. There’s some tangents and a lot of editing to even get this length. Apparently, I like to ramble A LOT. If you hold on to the end, one of them is talking about October plans for the Halloween marathon this year.

Without further ado, here’s what I’ve been up to the past week or so (a bit before also). Things get back to actually weekly stuff next week.

Thanks for watching!

What’s Up #7 Movies Movies Movies

Hey everyone!

My procrastination is definitely taking over as my perfectionist thing isn’t liking the structure (or forgot how I did it) of the previous recording. I don’t usually do double takes on What’s Up as its supposed to be a pretty straight forward thing. So that is where the delay is. But just so the content isn’t so crazy, I might make it into a weekly thing if time permits just to keep it more regular and less lengthy.

Just a little update before the main thing really. This was over 3 weeks and I did cut a few movies for next week’s which I’m starting to think might be a bad idea although I’m back into TV series and just rewatching old stuff I already talked about so things are not piling up as much.

What’s Up #3

Welcome welcome everyone!

2 weeks have gone by and its time for my next venture into the video update! I’m sorry that I haven’t had more time to figure out a better set-up. Its on my endless to-do list, I promise! I’m debating whether recording earlier would be the key. I’ll do a few tests to check it out.

For now, please bear with this dim and weird camera angle.

Thanks for watching!
What have you been binging, reading, playing and watching?

What’s Up #2 [Vlog]

Welcome back to another What’s Up series vlog!

If you are new here, What’s Up started off as a written series where I talked about the things I’ve been up to in terms of TV series binges, what I’m reading, what I’m watching and what I’m playing. In a fun attempt to give it a new place and to revive the Youtube channel, I’ve turned it into a video series. Its currently a biweekly feature.

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for watching!
As always, feel free to share what you’re up to?
As well as any recommendations for me to check out!

My Weekly Adventures #64

Last two weeks have been honestly work galore. I’ve never felt so swamped. So right now, I’m feeling this fatigue:

but my inner voice is screaming at the top of my lungs in relief and massive happiness:

With that said, not a ton happened in particular as I spent a lot of the last two weekends at work. It caused disruptions in the blog for the most part. I did manage to go check out some new places around town. So I guess its not completely nothing, right? 😉

Gazo Montreal

Gazo Montreal

One of my college acquaintances opened up this new ice cream/fruit tea shop in downtown Montreal near Concordia University (Guy-Concordia metro) which serves liquid nitrogen ice cream and fruit teas. They had a soft launch on April 19th and my best friend and I headed over after my Saturday overtime to check it out. We both had fruit teas. She had the cheesecake mouse oolong tea (can’t remember the exact name). I have lactose-intolerance so I ended up getting a fruit tea called Four Seasons Oolong Tea Lemonade.

I think the main attraction here is the liquid nitrogen ice cream which will be its main selling point. In terms of fruit teas, they do need some polishing. My oolong tea lemonade pretty much was a lemonade and it seemed like they forgot the oolong tea. Of course, my best friend however said hers tasted oodles of tea (so maybe the organization of tea making needs some work), but then, its still a soft launch so the time to polish up these details.

If you want to check it out, here’s their Facebook page.

What’s Up Channel Debut

Its always time to move onto something new. Sure its a bit of a little harder work than say my old unboxing videos but I think I’m going to enjoy these random chat topics and quick recaps of whats been up. I’ve always liked the What’s Up series on the blog. Sometimes, the backlog gets really long and it takes a little while longer to get to the longer reviews so these kind of give a quick perspective of all my projects.

My husband commented that the first episode was a little long so I’m going to try to keep it within the 10 minute mark for most of them. I do agree that 15 minutes is a lengthy but I wanted to talk about the project itself in case someone not from the blog dropped by. 🙂

Will I get back to unboxing? Maybe. There’s a lot of factors into play but I like to change up projects every once in a while. Its really the only way that I can keep growing and changing especially since its been going on for seven years. For now, I’m not really into it (unless I partner with some company..which I’m not big enough for or if I find a box that intrigues me to try for one time).

Banh Mi MC

Banh Mi MC

This past weekend was huge. My eating schedule was all over the place between juggling massive overtime at work and doing my part in chores and groceries. Trust me when I say that my husband was a real champ in stepping up to take care of a lot of the stuff. As a little treat, we learned that Banh Mi MC had opened. Pho MC is this delicious Vietnamese restaurant that we love to go to and right next door is their extension which sells Banh Mi which are pretty much Vietnamese subs. We got a grilled chicken one. While it doesn’t look like there’s a lot of chicken, its a pretty nice balance of everything. I’m pretty impressed. I’m hoping to check out the grilled pork next time.

Its a short post for today. I’m typing this up the night before and I’m yawning so much my eyes are watering so I need to channel in some remaining energy to get something wrapped up to send over to That Moment In since I’ve been MIA over there for 2 weeks, which isn’t good. Either way, I have been doing a  lot of gaming to relax so just need to find the brain power to write up the reviews.

Upcoming:

  • Wine Recap (every 10th of the month)
  • Music Obsessions (first weekend of the month..as usual)
  • Double Feature & TV Binge
  • Book review & Book Blitz
  • And probably a new What’s Up video…

That’s it for this Weekly Adventures!
What have you been up to?

Channel Revival – What’s Up Video Debut

Some of you may never have known about my Youtube channel much since I posted so little and for the last year or so, its really been just a little Unboxing segment. But I had some gaming stuff going on there before Game Warp finally set up our own channel. I did vlogging a few years back and I sometimes take little snippets of vacation moments that I love or things I see around Montreal when I’m wandering around at events or whatnot. Other than the hiatus on unboxing, everything remains sporadic but will still show up. I’ve been thinking about changing up the format of the channel for a little bits so I’m starting with the What’s Up segment moving over there. Its not going to be a biweekly segment.

I have some topics I’ve thought about that I want to talk about. Maybe I’ll even start moving TV binge segments over there as well. For this debut episode, its about 15 minutes long but normally, it will be around the 10 to 15 minutes mark just to keep it a decent length so I don’t bore everyone.

Here it is! Set up leaves a little to be desires but I’m just using my crappy webcam for now…so please bear with me as I figure a few other things out.

Suggestions, comments, other things I can discuss…tell me what you thought. There will be changes properly and it’ll sound better (and maybe less robotic) when I actually get a little more comfortable and self-conscious and figure out where to look at the camera instead of my notes and checking if the audio is still recording.

Sunday Lists, TV Binges and maybe some food segment are a few I’m thinking of moving to TV format but it’ll be a little bit before it actually happens. Any other segments you think fit well in this format instead?

Thats the debut episode! 
Hope you liked it! Thanks for watching!
