If you were to ask me what’s my favourite day of the week, I’ll say “Friday”. Because that’s when I have the entire weekend ahead of me! Friday nights are best for chilling out after a long busy week. I love sitting on the bar stool and enjoying the conversation so much that everything else fades out. Perhaps that feeling is what they mean when they say to exist in the moment.
It still serves the food it served— local-style mini cup cakes, kaya (coconut-jam) toasts, half-boiled eggs…
When I was a kid, I had tea every morning. Because it was always so hot, Grandma taught me to pour in into the saucer and drink it from there. The tea in Chin Mee Chin came in the same type of cup and saucer. It tasted of nostalgia.
Me: Chocolates or ice-cream?
Me: (after a moment) ice-cream
He hence concluded that he needn’t share his chocolate stash with me in future.

He likes the idea of Barcelona. I have no problems with it, especially since I haven’t had the chance to visit Spain. At the same time, a few images surfaced in my mind as I thought about honeymoon locations this morning.
Firstly, I am absolutely charmed by these photos of countryside France. I can’t believe places like these exist! Don’t you find them only in movie sets?
Then I thought about the movies I’ve watched. Did you catch Under the Tuscan Sun? I loved it but even if you beg to differ, you’ll have to concur that the scenery was stunning! That’s Positano (1st) and that’s (3rd) "Bramasole”, the house that was restored in the movie.

Today I'm going to share about APAK. APAK is a husband and wife team (Aaron Piland and Ayumi Kajikawa Piland) from the outskirts of Portland, Oregon. Their work largely features cute little beings, animals and nature. To say that I’m smitten by how cute they are is an understatement!
