Spent the last two days catching up with SKY, caught Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and it was a pretty interesting story plot and cool special effects but don't really understand the story, hahas.

Went to Seoul Yummy for dinner again, army stew really was superb. Hope to see these girls again soon. Thank you for the wonderful dinner;)

Seldom my family would visit restaurants for meals and this is one of the rare times. So decided to head over to Paradise Inn for dinner. Ordered a few dishes to share, and most were tasty except for the minced pork with water chestnut and salted egg yolk. Not recommended. It was nice having some family bonding time, missed it so much.
Tomorrow is SIP launch day. How one week had passed shortly after my exams. Don't feel well rested yet nor have enough me-time. Sigh. Kinda dreading SIP but also excited. Really pray that everything would go well.

Have a good week ahead!(:

#17 L'etoile Cafe/ Jewel Cafe + Bar

Have this sudden interest of going cafe hopping because of all the pretty pictures seen at Instagram and following Ladyironchef made me wanna jumped on this bandwagon as well. Just see how it goes. 

Anyway the first stop is at Farrer Park. Supposingly to visit 4 nearby cafes, but one was close and the other we had a hard time finding after walking rounds and rounds:(

Putting that aside, our first stop was at L'etoile Cafe, reached there quite conveniently despite the rainy day. Best to go on a weekday really cos there's not much people around and in this type of cafes, its usually made for a smaller crowd of people given the limited space. Must admit the interior design was pretty vintage and so relaxing like you can just watch the world go by. Food wise was standard, pastas was seriously overpriced. Don't recommend that. Service was meh. But what we ate was good enough so would go back there another time prolly just for the ambiance hahas.

Next stop was at Jewel Cafe & Bar, was not really expecting the looks of it but we gave it a try anyway. Felt it is more of a bar than a cafe but again the atmosphere was very welcoming and warming. Customers mostly went there for beer and wine. Main dishes was expensive too and since we ate earlier, we just ordered desserts. The watermelon steaks I ordered was pretty refreshing taste but a tad weird for me though it was one of a creative dish I had ever tasted. The brownie was amazingly yummy(: Service was good too, hahas everyone was so friendly and welcoming to us.

Kinda short but after walking so much it was pretty tiring plus the weather made it sucks. On the bright side, really happy to experience all these in one day, all the old shophouses, people working, taking photos, like a small village or something, hahas. Hope to have more of this next time and I'll definitely share more here for keepsake!^^

Am very productive this week to catch up with friends and family. Another update soon~


So exams had finally ended yesterday! End of another tiring and busy semester. Just one more internship and semester to go, I will be graduating soon :o

Had a buffet yet again at Seoul Garden with my girls after our exams ended, ate till too full and just want to sleep it off after that. Thank you for the company as always!(:

I'm start rambling off whatever that comes to my mind. This blog had survived so much, though my updates seemed to dwindle a lot. :X

Managed to found this app where I could download ebooks to read, especially where most of my fave authors' books are available, pretty awesome! Missed reading so much. I do like paperback books still though cos reading through a digital screen ain't good for my eyes *.*

Sadly only less than a week break and internship will begin. There's like so many things I plan to do but constraint by time and money. Why is it always these two things that will affect what we do?

Realised exam period is always the time where I think too much just because I don't feel like studying and mind just wonder about everything that had happened throughout my life. Then this became the place to put some thoughts. Felt like such a failure cos I accomplish nothing that seemed good enough. How much I wanted to break out of this "role/image" I'm given but too afraid to try and the expectation/perception already set by people. it will just seemed too wild or negative. I don't know.

Why are we also bound by unwritten/spoken rules that we aren't supposed to break? The universe is so big that goes on forever but we're just a tiny part of this system. It made no sense that people judge based on what they think should be right or wrong. I mean its your life, why need permission or acceptance in order to do something deemed as good or bad. I really don't understand. I really admire those people who got the courage to be who they want to be, doesn't matter they are seen as a crazy and weird person. Like being abnormal is the real normal.

Starting to worry what I should do after graduation too. Want to continue too study but I will be going through something 10 times more difficult and stressful than poly life. Working seemed like a good idea but being stuck in a position where you are just there to make money for survival sake is meaningless. If I had passion for doing something it would be good for it to surface right now. Sigh. All this just bring me back to square one again.

Just once, I would like to push myself out of this boundary I made for myself and see what happens.
