Of teas and pastries


I just couldn't refuse a nice offer of teas and pastries at TWG from my aunt. I've always loved this place, the ambient, service and the delicious looking macarons lined up across the glass case which is sure to catch your eyes as soon as you enter the tea salon. Their macarons are my absolute favourite and I never fail to buy at least two on days where I felt like I had to treat myself with something nice. With the gorgeous glass walls and gold fittings, the place looks really expensive (indeed it is!) thus it makes you feel like you've got to dress up for an afternoon tea break. I was more than delighted when I finally was able to get a seat and had the waitress serving me and my company. Seeing that it was Father's Day, we decided to try out their special set for that day and ordered 2 extra teas for the 5 of us. The food was great other than the raspberry cheesecake as we're not fond of cheesecake except for my cousin sister. The teas lived up to their name, and were truly great.

Lately I'm still occupied with the same old things, preparing for my studies and finishing up my nail art course. Just the other day when I thought I wanted to practice my nail art for the remaining tests, my cat decided to jump onto my table when I was away and broke my cuticle oil bottle. It was terrible, oil spilled onto the floor and tiny glass pieces shattered made it much worse. Mom helped me in cleaning everything away but I've got to get a new bottle soon, and I've got to say that it costs quite a sum. Thanks, kitty...

Lately I've been feeling rather uninspired to blog. Apart from shying away from makeup since my skin has yet to heal completely, I've got lots of things to do and they just keep clogging up my mind for fresh ideas to blog about. Sure, I've got a list of things I want to blog and review on, but that doesn't help if I'm not into it at the moment as it'll just turn out to be half willed posts.

For the past few days I've been running up and down to settle my documentation for my student pass to study in Singapore and whilst I got that settled for now, searching for an accommodation in Singapore proves to be somewhat challenging. Room rates are so expensive and to top it off the conversion rate makes it even worst. I've also yet to settle my 2 remaining nail art exams which I've been dreading since they're all extensions and I hate doing extensions. Moreover, June is so packed with stuff like accompanying my relatives to travel around Malaysia, sending and welcoming relatives from overseas which means many trips to the airport and attending events and meet ups with my friends that I can't seem to get my mind to rest. But you know, being busy is somewhat good as it means that I'm being productive.

Capturing moments with my cats are pieces of mementos I'm slowly collecting now before I depart to Singapore for my studies. I know I'll miss them so so much. :')
