peeking Perth (1).

it was the first time i visited Perth.
we only spent few days there so our schedule was quite packed.
our trip was guided by Niken, our friend who was also very kind to provide accomodation for our short stay there. WE CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH, NIKEN! much loveee..

although Perth is not as hyped as Melbourne or Sydney, but to be completely honest, it's got something...some kind of special charm that made me want to come back there (in fact i actually asked Andre if he wanted to visit it again sometime soon :P).

maybe what makes Perth so memorable for me are these things:
- it's scorching sun
- super friendly people
- peaceful & serene (!!)
- old city (made me think like we went back to 30 years ago) (!!)
- VERY BIG portion of food! haha..

here are some highlights about our trip..

heaven for nuts lovers like me :) my favorite is the Abalone macadamia!!

we visited The House of Honey where you can buy products that are made from...guess what...honey :)
i tried the lotion there and it was so good!!

quick visit to the winery

Yahava Coffee! we tried different types of coffees with unique tastes. i love the one with fruity flavors (which i forgot the name)..very refreshing.


how cool is this!

so me.

my biggest regret is that i didn't buy one of those cute teapots and cups windchime! no room in our luggages T.T

we had dinner at Ciao Italia, a famous neighborhood restaurant at South Perth. the atmosphere here is so great! very warm, close and very happy.. the waiters are funny and super nice!

the end of that day, we relaxed by the Swan River. the city on the other side looks really really pretty...

irresponsible hiatus.

i'm a person who believes that to survive in this overrated life, we need that sense of balance in everything. true happiness for me is when i know i have a balanced life.
although, ironically balance is a challenge for a personality like mine.
just like how irresponsible i am for having abandoned this blog and my instagram for more than a month.
but in my defense, that is the sign that i am actually active in my real life instead. so, sorry i'm not sorry peeps.. *teehee*
(seriously tho, keeping online life and real life synchronized is a pain in the arse for me *boooo*)

during that month, i was caught up in helping mom with her baby shop, and never been so happy reuniting myself with my parents, sisters and brother (while they were on holiday) before we got back to our own lives like now.
on the other side, my wedding prep is already halfway through. along with that, i am still dealing with had to deal with those infamous pre-wedding jitters crap. and again, my imbalance personality doesn't help at all. thankfully my bf (or fiance) has been patiently being the sane one. but anyway it's a whole side story which i might share later on (no promises tho :P)

for filling the gap, now here is some casual outfit shots which taken long time ago but i forgot to post. oh i am so helpless.

outfit: unbranded denim jacket, Forever21 shirt, Forever New belt, Zara shorts, New Look clutch

SIN (part 3)

another day another brunch.
in this post it was at Chye Seng Huat Hardware. pretty big brunch we had there, and pretty awesome too :)
loved the 'hardware' touch in this cafe..
the area surround it was very quiet, but it's good to feel the busy-ness inside the cafe. with not much chattering sound of people, coffee aroma that filled every inch of the place, and with rather soft playing music. just nice.

oh, that day was Valentine's Day.
after brunch and exploring other part of city, we celebrated by riding the Singapore Flyer. it was a first time for both of us.. we enjoyed so much seeing the city looking like a miniature from up there.
then we ended the night by watching the laserlight show at MBS :)
such a slow leisure day..hmmm...
