/ / m a i n / /

random narcissistic post. 
been sieving through old blog drafts, like those i've uploaded the pictures but haven't typed out the words yet.
some are more than a year old can you believe it!!!
im so ashamed of myself, sorry guys thats really some really solid procrastination there, causing those posts to never see the light :(
just deleted some in fact, sobs?!

i'm really gonna spend some time to finish typing texts into overdue posts tomorrow, and post those that i truly still want to share, even though its majorly overdue.

but for now, you'll have to make do with some shameless selfies first im sorry hahaha.

really like my makeup in this photo though is this a justified reason to post this???
i've been watching youtube makeup tutorials and i love those natural looking makeup!!
like those makeup youtubers look soooo good and chio even with natural looking makeup (which still  requires alot of steps did u know haha exposing their secret lol)
and then i think, will i look like that too if i follow the tutorial?
lol cos they already naturally pretty and can pull off that natural makeup look!!!
like their features and stuff la i mean.
meanwhile... i've been looking like damn cui these few days, dont even bother wearing nicer clothes to school to make up for the general cui-ness sigh.
but why arts people so hardworking ah, everyday dress up nicely for school i really applaud their hardwork!!! like really!!! cos i can't find any motivation AT ALL to do that. 
maybe after a good sleep tonight i'll find motivation to actually do something tomorrow lol.
(highly unlikely but ok never mind haha)

ok bye thanks for reading my nonsense post tee heeeee!

Rose Plaid

/ / m a i n / /

hello friends!:)
just a short update today!! 
but i hope you guys will enjoy the visuals and mini paragraphs of text still!

starting the day off with a selfie cos makeup on point yay

i finally managed to arrange a long overdue meetup with yunmei!
she's been wanting to try pacamara and its super near my work place on saturday so its a win-win situation hehe.

whats on the table.

duck confit hash

-shredded duck leg confit, potato rosti, mushrooms, kenya beans, greens, poached egg with hollandaise, toast.

yuzu citron tart

sticky date pancakes

-fresh bananas, cookie dough, candied pecan nuts, salted caramel sauce, salted caramel ice cream.

as usual, pacamara never disappoints!
up to date i've been to pacamara 3 times, and thats alot considering how i always like to try new places instead of old ones.
just goes to show how much i love the food here!!
it seems like they're always changing their menu, on all 3 occasions i've seen different stuff on their menu.

here's a quick review of the brunch fare we had today!
duck confit.
i loved it very much, it was a pretty special take on the usual duck confits served in french restaurants where they have a whole duck leg and some mashed potato.
this one came in the shredded form (yay for lazy people who hate cutting their food hahah)
and it came with rosti instead of mash potato.
rosti wise, marche still wins though! 
but this was not bad also imo.
i liked that it was a generous portion, as it came with two slices of triangle toast and an eggs benny.
the mix of eggs benny, rosti and duck was oh so yum indeed.

sticky date pancake!
this is by far, one of the favourite pancakes i have tried.
i remember the first time i tried something similar here and in dean and deluca, it was both cloyingly sweet.
which means, majorly gelat after a mere few bites.
this was much better, i like how they made the caramel sauce sweet but not overly sweet.
the pancakes to me, was a winner, cos i like my pancakes to have a bit more substance and not just be all fluff.
this had a nice texture to me, slightly more substantial and chewy.
not to mention it feels a tad healthier cos i think they used brown flour or buckwheat flour judging by the colour of the pancake.
this dish was just perfection basically, i swept everything off the plate, including the candied nuts!
and i don't even like nuts thats the best part haha.

lastly, we shared a yuzu citron tart for dessert!
i realize i've been ordering lemon based tarts quite a few times during brunch already.
i guess its cos its a really nice change cos its so refreshing and light, which feels better after a heavy meal, as compared to rich stuff like gooey chocolate based desserts.
this was not bad, but i prefer the citron tart at boufe!

you guys can read about my first and second time to pacamara if you're interested!:)

as usual, photos before eating hehe.

my usual phototaking spot in pacamara haha.
but with different company every time!

selfies with the signature silvery sign.
so so classy, love it.

thanks for the meetup yunmei!!
it was very very nice as usual:)
i love meeting up with old friends, it makes me feel all warm and happy inside :)
my slightly girlier otd for the day!
white knit top and a pink gingham skirt with scallop hems:)

thanks for reading everyone!!
and i hope you liked the food review even though i'm not an expert at it!!

Spain Travelogue: Mariposa

/ / m a i n / /

hello friends!!
its been 3 months since the spain trip and i'm still updating about it omg.
do bear with me, cos the visuals are worth it!!

day 3 was spent at a spanish palace, and its famous for its garden which is beautiful, but even more in spring/summer i'd imagine.

the first building we came across was this circular marble building, which is currently still being used as a concert venue because apparently it retains sound beautifully. 
the only problem with this place is that its so difficult to get a symmetrical shot, as seen by the photo below hahaha.

this place does look a tad bit barren in winter for a garden, but the shades of brown and the cool autumn, winter breeze set a very laidback vibe.
very good for chilling and just taking a relaxing stroll i would think :)

i loved these few unassuming houses, they're a bit too big to be a cottage but ahh, those homely countryside vibes emanating from it :') 

it was a long long walk up the hill before we reached the garden!
but i'd say it was worth the effort, we got a bird eye view of the whole city from this vantage point:)

love love love this photo!
it looks like i've been photoshopped into a postcard but its really not :')

one with the fam!

no nice background but err, i like this somewhat candid photo?
intense expression here america's next top model worthy? i kid. 

yay finally spotted a burst of colour!
sweet warm orange poppies :)

ahh i love this shot as well.
the contrast between the super blue skies and the rustic peachy building!

selfie with the youngest of the fam, who is now annoyingly taller than me and demands that i sit in the middle of the car instead of the side!! :( 

such a dream to have this a beautiful garden.

tham siblings, oldest from left to right kay!!
im not the oldest!!
people just assume i am when i wear makeup hmm.

loving the prints on the wall!!

another of my fav, such a pretty shade of baby pink but the carving was the real winner!!

ending off with this luscious green shot.
you can't see it from here but it was shaped in a beautiful arch!!
like those in weddings!!

and thats all for day 3's visuals!
i'm probably only left with 2 days' worth of spain visuals, cos some of the days were spent on the bus travelling from one place to another or spent shopping! (which means i went bare faced and donned specs so no photos heh.)

thanks for reading guys!!
