Christmas Craft



I have to admit I'm kind of a lazy person, which is why I have all these printable sources for my own convenience so when I'm in the mood of crafting but got out of ideas, I can easily browse the web, print 'em out and make them in shape. As for today, I make these christmas paper dolls in cone shape.

Here's on my working desk!

Mr Jones' Orphanage




After hearing so much about this place(and pictures), finally we're here. We did pass by the branch in Siam Center as we explore around but I insisted to make it to the main branch at Thong Lor. Once I got in, I immediately go up the stairs to check out the second floor. It's like entering the world of Alice. I have to say I'm a lil disappointed because I expected the space to be really big. I feel like a gigantic monster crashing in the house of dwarfs and fairies. It was such tiny space with low ceiling up there, as soon as I started to feel suffocated, I decided to get down, get a seat and start looking at the menu for foods.

Everything in the cafe from furnitures and interior decorations, serving teapots and cups etc are all custom made with Mr Jones' Orphanage label. Totally love the vintage teapots and cups that we feel like stealing them home!

Shopping Haul

So that's a wrap for long waited BKK trip. It's been 2 years I never go traveling with friends and I'm still thrilled to think about how cheap the shopping there can be. No, I don't miss the people there. Most of them are really rude when it comes to dealing with shoppers. I think it's the holiday season that got them so frustrated repeating the same line over and over again.

it's obvious that we didn't have enough time to cover the whole BKK in 4D3N. I wish I could travel out of town the next few trips though. Siam Square made us crazy the 1st day, Pratunam market the 2nd day and Chatuchak Market on our 3rd day – it's so sad we only managed to cover about 30% of it from 10am - 8pm(wtf wtf) then Platinum Fashion Mall on our last day.

Thanks to JY for the guidance on Line app as we didn't really plan for the itinerary and PS, for helping me to activate my ATM card, at time we were almost out of cash.

Milk or Butter

Just another weekend splurge at Milk & Butter, Bangsar. I really enjoy having to dress up and going out with my camera, but most of the time I'm in dilemma of whether to prioritise dressing up or photo-shooting wtf. Besides, my camera is so bulky and heavy to really bring around.

Podgy & The Banker

Really love this set of pictures – the color tone, not sure if it's the combination of cafe ambiance and sunlight or the film itself. The foods there was.. so-so and kinda pricey. It comes in a very small portion but the coffee was good though.

It's A Choice, Not Destiny

I almost forgot I had a blog. I actually have so many drafts saved earlier but didn't have time to go through them. As I browse through my old posts, I feel like this blog has somewhat turned into a diary of how I try to transform to be a positive and happier person.

Can't believe we are stepping into another year in 2 months time. My second half of the year passed a little fast(probably because I'm in a publishing industry). I think I've learned to manage my time better this time. Coming to work has been something to look forward to everyday. Life just seems to be pretty good at the moment, there's nothing I should be complaining.

To sum it up, this 2 months of absence was about reunion and simple pleasures of life. :)

Feelings

Looking Out

Brunch date with my cousie. She thinks it's funny that I carry such a bulky antique camera with me around.



"Feelings are just visitors, let them come and go."

I had one of the worse weekend morning, followed by some unpleasant incidents in the afternoon. And I have to say the statement above is proven true. Especially negative feelings, you should try to suppress it and let it go. Let's start learning to take things the easiest way now.

Central Market

Central Market (Phsar Thmei)




Locally known as Psar Thmei Market. It's one of the tourist attractions. I was brought there just for sight-seeing, with no intention of shopping. It's just like any other typical tourist market to me as they sell all kind of stuff, from ladies/men clothes to accessories, shoes, paintings, gem stones, gadgets and more. Nothing really special about it though.

Kopitiam




I have always wanted to visit this place for breakfast. It was my 2nd time there last 2 weeks and it's closed again. During my first visit there I actually called the owner. Kopitiam was closed because his daughter got injured from bread cutting. This time, it was because they closed on Sunday(I just checked wtf). But I still have faith! They better open this Saturday.

Birthday Brunch



The foods were delicious! I think I prefer having nice lunch than dinner – where there's natural sunlight for photo shooting, and probably less guilty. (P/s: I'm totally gaining weight back again)








It's been a wonderful month, I must say.

D Day





The older I get, the more complicated I think the adult world is. I always tell people that I just need something simple in life. But sometimes it hit me that I'm the one who always complicate things and make myself suffer. Why would I want to do that? How did it happen? I have no idea.

Tonight, all I need is silence.

Being 25



My birthday was rather simple but kinda fairytale-like to me. I really wanted to remember this special night. Plastic candles filled up the living room as I walked in, blinking love shape wands in all different colors on the couch, big birthday banner hanging on the wall. Friends showing up as surprise from the room, but I couldn't react in time. I had my tears rolling down like crazy. I was then presented to a chocolate mud birthday cake from SR after that. As I blow off the candles, he showed up with a big brown box tied with a ribbon. Everyone knew what was that.

Sisowath Quay

This is a cafe located at the corner of the street, is where you can find delicious duck noodles and some other foods I ordered are good too.(How I miss their homemade potato chips!) And the cafe is actually attached to a hotel. I love how we can have our brunch at the bar table. Except for watching people walking passed the street, I also enjoy looking at waitresses doing their job, e.g. making coffee and cocktails.
