Blackberry & Coconut Macaroon tart

This is such an easy recipe to follow and it tasted so refreshing with the blackberry infused together with the coconut. However, if i were to make this again, i think i'll replace the blackberries with blueberries instead. Nonetheless, i'm very pleased with the turnout of this tart in terms of taste and texture!

Universe and You

I thought that i've found quality coffee at forty hands, but apparently, the coffee at Loysel's toy cafe was even more kick ass. I couldn't stop raving about it and immediately brought Nessa there again the next day.

This week hasn't been stale at all. The girls and i spent quality time reliving memories and creating new ones. I met up with an old friend a couple of days back. Not really an old friend per se, more like an acquaintance from my SIM days. It's funny how we were such strangers when we had the chance to be better acquainted and are only such good friends now. It's interesting to see how things has worked out from then to now. 
I haven't got much time left at home. Certain days i wish that time could come to a standstill, while on other days i hope on the possibility for time to speed by. Former or latter, i'm going to take each day with a pinch of salt.

Plastic Hearts

 I've heard of this cafe since i was back during the Summer break, and have finally made my way there to enjoy coffee that was supposedly comparable to those in Melbourne. The coffee did not disappoint at all, well, maybe just the iced coffee (because they added ice cubes instead of Vanilla ice cream). The pork and truffle mushroom sandwiches were delish. The place was smaller than how i pictured it to be, but it was a comfortable kind of cosy. I was there 2 days in a row. Am going to take Nessa there on Monday.

...and these are some traditional brownies that i baked for Father's day service in church. 
Happy Sunday, all!

Seeing red

Wore this outfit on a day out and about while sipping coffee comparable to the ones in Melbourne. Coffee cravings satisfied. Oh the joy. I'm so in love with the colour and scallop ends of the top. Definitely a piece that I will be wearing to death this holiday.
On the way home tonight, we saw a commotion on the road and being the curious person that i am, we decided to drive past to take a peek. I knew that it was an accident but i wasn't too thrilled to see a dead person lying by the side in a body bag. It reminded me how uncertain life is, how in the snap of a finger, someone can lose their life, their everything. Then I thought about how their loved ones must be grieving while receiving the dreadful news on the other end of the line. And then i'm reminded again how blessed i am everyday to have my family, my friends, people that love me and people that i love. Things like that continually makes me mindful not to take things for granted. It's actually sad how it takes a tragic situation for us to be appreciative of what we have. 
Live and let live, my friends.

Rise & Shine

{Dress - Something else, Bag - Monki}

This is exactly how a holiday should be like. Spontaneous dinner indulging in mouthwatering German food plus an icy cold beer on a weekday night with a girlfriend. Laughing and reliving old times while creating new ones. I want more!

Of winter nights with summer's glow

{Shirt - Online, Shorts - The Cassette Society}

It's been two days since i'm back home. Weather's average, food's great but family time has been most grand. Have a great weekend, all!

I'm coming home

Love, we're going home now,

Where the vines clamber over the trellis:
Even before you, the summer will arrive,
On its honeysuckle feet, in your bedroom.

35 hours till take-off~

Glamour Puss

Finally handed in my major assignment yesterday. Was on the verge of a meltdown trying to complete everything the night before. I was going mental figuring out all the functions in photoshop. This entire week of doing work non-stop seriously drove me loco. So SO thankful that it's over. Compared to this assignment, the essay that is due on Monday is peanuts to me. I am thrilled at the thought of dropping off the assignment on Monday and be completely free from any work and enjoy the carefree days of this winter break. I already wrote down a list of things to do in sg in my head. But for now, i'm just going to sit back and enjoy this lovely Saturday evening.
