fashion + food

Diligent blogger at work again!
I am off for a short trip to land of yumyum-nomnoms
(huh??!!! ok, ok, Taiwan)
so before i leave, here is a slew of outfit & food shots
i didn't manage to upload last week :)

food partner in crime :(

we had dinner at CM-PB at dempseys and it was lovely!!

the nachos were so good, hot and crunchy.
we wiped the entire plate clean.

had the CM-PB burger and it was YUMS.

its a HUGE portion i warn you.
bonus - the fries taste kinda like shaker fries by macs.

lazyfriday outfit

outfit for the weekend:
Bella black lace top & Geraldine wine skirt

had tea/dinner at PAUL at Taka
and i think thats when bad food luck struck.

tried Croque-monsieur which is basically grilled ham&cheese sandwich.
i expect it to be really warm and comforting but it was just...

then i thought i had to try a croissant,
seeing that its supposedly famed for its pastries.
But it was disappointing.
I would expect golden flakes of buttery goodness
that crack when i sink my teeth into them
but it came cold.
it was cold, chewy and everything croissants are not supposed to be :(

lastly, i picked a fruit tart cos,
how can tarts go wrong right?
but sadly, tarts can go wrong.
Tarts can go really hard instead of crumbly
and taste of nothingness instead of butter.
sighs. bad food experience.

randomly, went back to Chung Cheng after 10 years.

this place held so so many memories,
it was probably the most exciting part of my growing up years.
i really really missed those years.

When i watched You Are the Apple of My Eye (那些年我們一起追的女孩)
i thought it was so sad that they didn't end up together.
I left the cinema feeling like something was incomplete.
They should have been together! Their love was so perfect!
They looked so cute together! WHYYYY!
then i remember my sec school days and thought,
oh yes, there are some people who are just meant to be first loves,
some people who walked into your life, stayed there,
left footprints, shed tears, tore you up
and then, walked away.
And these people, we were just lucky to be able to share
a moment in time with them and that's it. Our stories ended.

the air-con broke down in the office
and it killed all of us. ARGH.

V-day outfit! celebrated one day before
to coincide with one month of being a Mrs :)

wore this dress previously but with straps
so i tucked them in to get a tube dress instead!
am in love with pretty pleat details like these :)

went to Da Paolo Bistro Bar.

the ambience was great but..
bad food luck continued.

bruschetta was a-okay.

then i decided to re-test my faith in Da Paolo
and ordered their $21 calamari
(despite doing so previously and breaking my jaws chewing)
and....yes, i still died from chewing.
Maybe like Mella said, their version of good
is to be extremely extremely chewy.

the crab pasta was not too bad,
but if you are those who get sick of carbonara after a few mouthfuls,
it might not be a good idea to get this.

tried another wagyu patty burger BUT..sorry, CM-PB wins, hands down.
This burger was a tad tasteless, the caramelized onions didn't help,
the parma ham was too salty and overpowered the beef
and sighs, bad food luck.

wore MISCHA blue today!

gotta love the floral prints :)

can't wait to get to taiwan
and stuff myself full of food. WHEEEEEEE.

much love,
