Haha! Few weeks ago, my boss invited COSMOTOTS' staff to his house for his grandchild's 1st year birthday. The lucky child's name is Charlotte. She's adorable but very shy to people (like me) haha! I took a couple of pictures here and there and the highlight of the night beside 'lil Charlotte was the cake! *droooooling*
It was no ordinary cake, it was cupcakes! With a bear/ rabbit / whatever it is (coz I don't know what it looked like). It was quite tasty with two flavors - lemon and chocolate. Super sweet! If you see the pictures, you can actually roughly know my boss's house is full of 'Chinese antiques' . I was literally O_O when I was looking around the house. I was expecting something more.... maybe more to a posh kinda home. But it turned out to be a very traditional home with lots of Chinese violion (Er hu), marinated Chinese wine and lots of old books.
My boss's house was apparently 5 mins from mine LOL! but no I did not walk to his house. =____=
Overall, it was an interesting 'adventure'. And nice to see a few babies there! (:
I'm so spoilt pampered. By the treats from colleagues. LOL.. they occasionally bring food from everywhere to share with each other. Not to mention treats from parents too, sometimes. I have awesome colleagues. Seriously.. they changed me. Specifically they changed my WEIGHT. Hahaha!
They celebrate birthdays in the office so I kinda eat cakes regularly. Sometimes they buy cupcake instead of normal cake too. For variety, I presume. But they are really awesome and I love all those cakes! XD Thank you all for being so nice to each other!
Did your weekends went well, flower pots? I bet it did! I know I had a great one! Even the weather was a little gloomy to me, but.. sky is the limit when it comes to fun, eh? Had the favorite food, drank the A-list coffee, met awesome friends. I'm totally blown out!
Living in a high standard life ain't easy. Especially for girls. Trust me for I am one. From earning money to spending money on clothes, shoes, accessories to managing the closet to matching out the perfect outfit to feeling comfortable! *pheeeww* Everything mentioned needs precision thoughts and a mixture of intelligence.
"Keeping up the Joneses" - One damn hurting idiom ever created. I remember when I was 5, I wasn't expose to Starbucks or Coffee Beans. When I was 10, I wasn't introduced to Dolce & Gabbana or Hermes Perkins. When I was 15, I wasn't familiar with high tech electronics such as Apple and Blackberry (which back then, to me they were just fruits). Nowadays, kids' privileges go up to carrying Charles &amp;amp; Keith and iPhones to school/tuition centers. How awesome it is if I am a 1990?
Also, I remember one of my teacher used to asked us to differentiate our needs and wants in our book with the lists given. Of course, the three main NEEDS were shelter, food and clothes. But then.. if I were to do it again, I couldn't tell the difference anymore. What I need and want would clash together.
I wish kids out there would acknowledge their parents for everything they'd been provided - Things they NEED and WANT.
I had always wanted to go to a coffee shop, read a book while sipping a nice hot coffee. But this plan has also been a failure. Nevetheless I still love my last weekend of July. I had a good deal at Charles & Keith, had an awesome SFCC coffee with the roomie, went to City Harvest church and visited their book shop too, Readz.
Despite the failed plan, I yet managed to pull off my "plan B" quite well and I had a big smile that week. I love my weekends when they're utilized fully and properly. The satisfaction of spending quality weekend is just so...overwhelming.
Speaking of PULL, I went to F21 and Pull and Bear earlier, found out their summer/fall collection was groovy. If and only if I have a platinum card. You know what I mean *wink* Have a great weekend folks! I'll be back as soon as I can! xox
The intersection point about Ninja Joe and Auntie Anne's is that both of them are not filling, like at all. These are the food that I'm suppose to consume occasionally. Nevertheless, it's been associating with my main meals, even worst, they ARE my meals. Why am I spending money on these? Simple answer - 屁股痒! How can I ignore the desire of wanting it yet carry the guilty pleasure around after that? I'll find out..someday, years later, maybe.
Think about the moolah I spent on these food. Worth it? You tell me. Not on my favorite food, not on healthy food either. It's just the feeling of wanting to munch on it. Damn..why on earth do I have these feelings? Am trying to find a way to control this habit of mine. It gotta be stopped else I'll be dead before Jesus knew it.
So far, I keep telling myself that I can't afford it, my weight is not descending or I don't have enough cash. And it work.....30% of the time. Geeez. So much of troubling my brain to come up with not-so-brilliant ideas.
Is it just me or you're nodding your head in agreement with me?
Breakfast and dessert. For me to decide which is more important will take me zillion years to do so. I can't and I won't. Both are equally significant for me. Says my body and mind.
A bachelor's life is a fine breakfast, a flat lunch, and a miserable dinner. - Francis Bacon All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast. - John Gunther Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first. - Ernestine Ulmer 'Twill make old women young and fresh, Create new motions of the flesh. And cause them long for you know what, If they but taste of chocolate.' - James Wadworth A little chocolate is like a love affair - an occasional sweet release that lightens the spirit. A lot of chocolate is like marriage - it seems so good at first but before you know it you've got chunky hips and a waddle-walk. - Linda Solegato
Holla! Was down with *sneeze* and *cough* and now, finally, on a Friday night, I have time to write something!
Well last weekend I tried Austin Chase coffee and I find it not bad. It's like the bitterness is hidden in a sip, sweetness came first. Weird but I like - the smell didn't exert like any other coffee but the taste is there, lingering around. (:
I might snapped too much pictures (just to improve my photography skills). But I like to edit them so...bear with me, will you?
Austin Chase, The Gardens. ❀
it's summer! hawt! hawt! hawt! ☼
Hot Caramel flavored Latte
you're hot. . . .
. . . . then you're cold.
Cold Hazelnut flavored Latte
the combo drink.
Not too bitter, not too sweet. Just right for me. I'm not a heavy coffee drinker so Austin Chase's flavored coffee latte is a good choice. If you're the opposite of me, you might not fancy this..too bad. Their website HERE
the companions of the day. awesome. ♥
That's all people. Try out your Austin Chase. And how do you think my photos went? ☺
