Sunday date

It's been a long while since the bf and I went on a proper one on one date. Last Sunday we went to get a late lunch at Espressense which turned out to be an impromptu date. It was drizzled outside but we're seated at the window side of the cozy cafe. 

Since he's back for good, I realize we're too busy living our life and has spent less and less time capturing it. I was browsing my phone photo gallery recently and realized the last picture of us taken together was such a long time ago. Our Sunday would be perfect if only I have my camera with me. 

Food wise, Espressense has what it takes to capture my stomach. I love all of our food that day but service wise, they could have done better. I waited too long for my baguette because the waitress forgot my order while we were the only customer dining in. Huge minus point there but I think I would love to come back again for the food. Not now but maybe someday in the future.

Patong Beach | Bangla Street

One of the shots around Patong Beach
We strolled around the same area almost every nights as it is the most happening places around Patong. Streets were filled with vendors selling all kind of stuffs from food to shirts, flip flop, souvenirs and even pirated DVDs. It was fun to walk around and soaking yourself with the local cultures.

Of course there's the famous Bangla Street in Phuket. Very similar to the Walking Street in Pattaya, here's where the night entertainment take places. The streets were filled with clubs and bars with their "call girl" thrown on the street promoting their club. Like the Walking Street, Bangla Street is famous for their strip club, well more like an underground stripe club which filled with transgenders.

For the sake of experience, we did went to an underground strip club and man, the sight of fake boobies made me sleepy. Hahahaha Like seriously, their show somehow were repetitive. The same she-males went on stage dancing in only loose piece of clothing tied around their waist, moving back and forth shaking their things, the guy lady with flexible hole down there showing her skill in muscle flexibility down there by putting various things (eggs, beer bottle and etc) in there without breaking it. One word: gross. 

I think gross is the perfect word to describe my whole night at Bangla Street. The only thing that I love about Bangla Street is their McDonald. It's the only McDonald branch that sell bubble milk tea which is super awesome. I even went back the next day just to get another sip of the rich bubble milk tea.

Malaysia, Y U NO HAVE THIS?!

Most of our evenings were spent on the beach playing in the salt water or just sat there and watch sunset. Everyone was so laid back on the beach and it was such a happy place for me. Though I'm not the big fan of sandy salty water but just surrounded by people whom on vacation and super laid back made me feel calm.

I bought my top there for 150 Baht.

Spotted the Australia flag
 I did spot some other countries flags too. Wonder if the tourist brought their country flags all the way from their home and put it up there. 

Spotted this dog playing happily with the waves.
It was so funny because he would wait in the water until the waves crushing in and jump around as if to avoid the waves.

<3 p="">
Putting this picture up because I think we both looked so funny here. Obligatory pose like an old couple with the landmark. 

Phuket is an island full with hidden gems when it come to food because the most worth going or must try eating place are actually pretty much laying low and situated in a narrow shop lot. Like this one shop that we went to, it was just a lucky incident for us to spot this place. It serves the best mango sticky rice, in my and millions other opinions.

Look at the testimonies of their customers. Everyone is bragging about their mango sticky rice. 

I tried it and love it. It was so cheap too. We even came back the next day just to get the mango sticky rice

Fried rice. I wonder how something so simple can taste so good

Pork rice I think, bf said it taste good too. 
And yes, almost every places in Phuket have WiFi, really convenient one 

Yup, their omelette is a must have too

When it comes to food in Thailand, I don't think one should be worry unless if you can't take spicy food, every meals in Thailand really satisfying me. From Bangkok to Phuket, I can't recall any awful meals during my stay. It really is a food heaven.

When it was getting too hot to walk outdoor, we would stay in Jungceylon mall and their The Big C supermarket. Even window shopping in their supermarket made me happy because they have everything. Their snack and beverages selections are endless. I even bought some make up items in there. Mostly the stuffs that are not available in Malaysia.

When we're too tired to walk anymore, we went to a spa for facial because they were having some great promotion that day. Takashi Tokyo facial which only cost 299 Baht. Super cheap and it is not the dodgy kind. Their staff were dressed in professional white coat.

The bf looked kinda nervous 

Ready to get my make up off and extract those blackheads.

It's funny how I came in with face full of make up and came out make up less with redness on my face. It was quick and a little painful as blackhead extraction could be. But I got to lie down and nap while being pampered almost the same as going for Thai massage hehehe.

Plain Jane Tee

One of the reason that I love weekend is that I have the chance to dress up nicely and spending my day with the loved one. The must have item in my wardrobe currently is the plain Jane tee (in white) as above. High quality plain cotton tee is perfect to be matched with statement items such as bold bright color, prints and even black to create monotone look.

I matched mine with a simple bright red skater skirt and a comfy flats for a day out. This look is perfect for our forever summer weather in Malaysia. It literally took me less than 3 minutes to come out with this look. Chic and effortless.

Plain Jane Tee is from Inside Her Wardrobe

So many things to do, so little time

I have super mix feeling about how my days go by as for lately. It's not like I'm super busy but I feel so restless, feeling like rushing here and there everyday, for what I myself also been asking this question. Sometimes all I wanted to do is just curl up under my duvet with a good book and let the world goes by outside. But no such luck for me yet.

There are always something to do, something to attend. I've started to lose my sanity with all of these race and am now stuck in the rut.

The first thought that hit me when I open my eyes every morning is "Gosh, i wish i slept earlier last night". Every night when I'm done doing all the things that I wanted to do, the clock already half pass midnight. I went to bed tired and waking up even more tired.

As of late I finally put my words into action. I have been talking about getting back into getting fit and getting tone, so I finally stopped finding excuses and signing up for gym membership. The day after the first gym session was the cruelest. I think my muscle was in shock, it's been years since I feel that way. It was a good feeling tho.

By the way, I found a site that help people to print their Instagram pictures. Imagine how excited I was when I found out that they ship to Malaysia too with free shipping. I had a tough time selecting the pictures because I wanted to print they all. Those are happy memories for me. I already had some ideas to utilize the pictures for my room decor and have a slight itch to start doing scrapbook. I saw some gorgeous scrapbook and deco materials for it the other day at Popular and almost bought it all. But in the end, I didn't because I know it will be completely forgotten and chuck aside in my room later on.

#1 My printed Instagram pictures finally reach

First row from left to right: 1) Christmas dinner at my aunt house back in 2011. 2) When I was in Bangkok last year. 3) My fur lover waiting for his bath time 4) At Phuket with the bf last July

I have my picture printed by Portagram. It was USD8 for a dozen but the down side is that it took almost a month to reach my door step :( 

#2 Good times

I bought two new novels last week and clearing out my book shelve only to realize I have so many new books to read. Again, I wish I have more time in a day. Maybe you can clearly notice my genre by looking at the book titles that I have. I used to love chick literature so much but when I enter my 20's, I find that the plots are somewhat repetitive. I'm going back to my scary and mystery phase and totally loving it.

#3 I bought at least 20 books this year
And good news is I got most of them on sale and almost free.

TGIF! I'm determine to make my weekend a productive one. I wanna do random shot, wash my car, rearrange my closet, getting my nails done with my bestie, fix my hair etc etc

This is random but I miss Danish.
