baby you're a firework.

so another week came and went in our second country of residence. we decided to do something different this time besides going to the usual haunts for dinner - so i made reservations for somboon seafood for myself and my couple friend who was there on vacay.. until kelly decided she would join. so i made another reservation under her name and this was what we saw when we reached the restaurant:


hello miss cannie! she had us calling her that all night, hahahaha.

 the much-raved-about curry crab at somboon which was well, a disappointment :(



machiam lao yu sheng.


miss cannie and her tomyumgoong.


given the price and standard of the food, i should have brought them to yaowarat instead! speaking of which i am thinking about the hugeass grilled prawns and trying not to drool as i type. but i digress.

random outfits:
colourblockday,


favourite Stayover Sunday :)



and a new romper for the week.



dug out a shift dress from my mum's closet which i lovelovelove to bits. 
i think this piece might be fifteen years old... not yet a vintage but hey, good enough for me.


thing is, i can't zip it up completely cos im way bigger than her, ugggh.
any recommendations for a good tailor where i can get it altered to a low-V at the back? much appreciated!

p/s: i do hope you girls can view LJ now! it was such a spidey moment for us when we realised most of you couldn't.. thank god for alternatives like blogspot! 

xoxo,
sharon

Hi Sharon, is the necklace you wore with the romper from an LJ too?

Hey MP girls! Seeing how you are so familiar with BKK, do you have any food/shopping suggestions?? Am going there in a week! :D

anon1: hey dear that necklace was gifted from a friend! it was bought in tokyo :) as for the white dress, i got it from forever21!

anon2: oh gosh we have sooo many food suggestions! you gotta try the wanton noodles, sharksfin soup and oyster egg from platinum mall food court, head to Yaowarat (chinatown) for fresh seafood like oysters and huge grilled prawns.. and check out some good western fare at Vanilla or Greyhound Cafe at Siam Paragon :) MBK foodcourt has loads of nice stuff too! and as for shopping, you can always head to Jatujak Market (only on weekends though), as well as the Pratunam area. Hope that helps! Have fun!!

Hi Sharon! I have a vintage dress that I can't zip up fully too, so kudos to your idea of altering it to a low V at the back!! Think I'll make mine a low U though, haha. I don't have much personal experience with seamstresses, but my friend said Michelle alterations at FEP is not bad!! I used to go to Chinatown tailors but they are really pretty overpriced!

anon: hi dear! haha good to know im not alone! :P ok i'll try out FEP and let u know how it goes! thanks!
