pretty pink

I haven't been doing any productive other than sleeping and eating loads of chocolate bread or raisin walnut bread with mugs of hot milk tea. It's really quite relaxing but I'm feeling pudgy and it does not help that I drive everywhere and the most vigorous exercise I get everyday is probably me scrubbing myself in the shower. The world would be perfect if i am perfectly skinny with baby pink hair and some purple strands like my little pony.

I hope everyone had a good easter... I sure did!
I spent the weekend sleepless cos we were staying up catching up with my cousin and her boyfriend and eating loads. I like talking about our future plans, recalling our shared memories as little kids growing up together, handbags and watching the devil wears prada on dvd. I love love love that show almost as much as the confessions of a shoppaholic!

Eyes wide open.

These are pictures of gorgeous norway. I'm going to the plane tickets there tonight. I wish I stayed nearer there. I've been lying in bed the entire day with my sleeping dog next to me. It's evening and the sun is setting and I am still in my pjs. I think days like this are good to calm the mind.

bread and sole.

We went to the bookstore over the weekend to pick up my usual mags.. I know the colours are kinda clashing but I couldn't help but wear that pair of bright blue levis shorts which I just recently dug out of my closet. After that, we went to pick up my usual bread. I've got a thing for bakeries. We pop by one every 2 or 3 days. It's kinda funny. I thrive on the freshly baked smell of bread whereas andreas finds them to crumb-ifying.

Right now, before I sleep, I'm staring at the picture of a pair of shoes from see by chloe. I really want to buy them like NOW. For your eyes to feast on... ...

Currently we are at home. Just reading up doing some work. First pic is my mildly toasted bread (note mildly, i don't like it too crisp) with nutella. Tonight we are going to somewhere fun!

There's my new Litas with my friend the nutcracker. Colour chosen by Andreas. As unpractical as it sounds, I'm going to go hiking in the Norwegian woods with it!

caffeine addict.

my overly contented stomach is filled with coffee, loads of chocolate cake and a philly cheese steak. I love good food in good ambience and that's what we had for dinner at a coffee joint cafe. I think there is something just so beautiful in dim yellow lights. I kinda detest neon argon lights. Duck confit! I grin a lot to myself when I am eating good food. a cup of cafe mocha... we concluded that was the best cup of mocha we ever had. I feel like learning how to do coffee art. and... my comfy outfit for the day that can hide a huge belly. A H&M slip with a stradivarius woolly pullover with my favourite pair of boyish patent flats from jeffrey campbell.

note to self: BUY MORE ACESSORIES!

I've decided to set aside a nice sum of money to buy accesories. I always complain to andreas bout my lack of acessories cos work doesn't let me or either because it's not practical and then envy all the girls with multiple rings and chains. He says I've got no excuse or reason to complain and I really should spend some money on them!

pretzel kisses.

p1. auntie anne's pretzels. (I buy the plain and chocolate only), p2. they don't understand how much I love you. I honestly think auntie anne's pretzels just taste like very buttery soft bread. which makes it nice although I think I could make something like that with toast at home just that I probably wouldn't be so generous with the butter. Got a slight headache now. Off to bed!Bisous!

minutes from the week. Always overlooked. p2. I used to like to play pokemon on gameboy when it first came out. And of course I got excited when I could play it on the ipad. On screen, that's me fighting a wild zubat haha. p3. this reminds me of where the wild things are. You need padded clawed feet like that on grumpy days. Kinda like gives you the right to throw a tantrum and stomp your feet. And I've been feeling a little like that yesterday and today. p4. andreas behind the bush. p5. A thousand cranes. there's a story that states that if a person folds a 1000 cranes, you get a wish come through - get cured from cancer. I really believed it as a kid and I tried but it didn't work and I thought that was because I didn't know how to string my cranes together. p6. And when I set my eyes on this origami jewellery necklace, from origamijewellery which is based in France, I knew I had to get it!

no regrets!

p1. these are one of andreas' current favourite bags. He says it's really practical and it goes with everything.

p2.models, mac, juice. perfection. tfs.

p3.fiddling around a random picture.

It's april! New month, new things. I had to show you the model and mac picture cos that's my new laptop! I couldn't be any more happier. Work is starting to slow down a little since the fierce doc has gone off shift this month. Although, I'm embarking on a rather interesting paper on a really rare cancer and I would be spending a lot of time in the laboratories.. hope it will get published! Things are looking up for now. Except, well the negatives are that I have put on weight and that my dog has a suspected tumour and he would be going for surgery this coming sat. Wish him luck.

afternoon strolls

These pictures are so deceivingly quiet and peaceful. Actually, this morning we went to pop by town to check out some awesome sony laptop offer where the first 25 people get it at halfprice. We got there just before the store opened and there was already a mad, furious and violent crowd waiting. Of course I didn't manage to get that offer so we headed over to the apple store to pick up a macbook air which would be awesome for travelling with. By the way, in the p1, that's one of andreas' top that I often steal. And in p2, that's the cutest puppy I have ever seen and I think it liked me!
