ME + FOOD

Photobucket


Nong Shim cheese ramen which I have been ITCHING to try! Coupled with milk tea, not very nice but it'll do. I ♥ MILK TEA ^^

Just hearing all those rave reviews about how good Korean instant ramen noodles taste when cheese is added to it makes me wanna try it for myself sooo bad.
And what's more I'm a huge cheese lover.
I'm talking HUGE, like I seriously use up at least half a can of parmesan cheese everytime I eat pasta/pizza at restaurants.
But who wouldn't like cheese?
It's fragrant, tasty and chock full of nutritious goodies.

So yeah, basically the ramen was only so-so.
My first try, I used all the seasoning and it turned out salty as f---. Nasty, couldn't even swallow 2 mouthfuls without chugging plain water.
Second try I used like 3/4 and it turned out well!
Though I must say it's nothing to rave about...
It has a super unique flavour to it, but not really cheesy.

My cousin suggested adding a slice of cheese to it even though it presumable already contains cheese. Oh well, I'll try it next time :)

Salmon sushi~

My very first time trying, didn't ever really have the nerve to try frickin' raw salmon.
Also, I'm allergic to fish :(
Thankfully not allergic to tuna, ikan bilis.
But allergic to fish & chips, fillet-o-fish...those kinds of fish...
Yeah I don't know why it's so weird too haha.

My friend highly recommended sashimi, saying it was nice to eat and didn't have any raw, fishy flavour like I was afraid it would. Thus, I dared myself to try it. After all, the worst that could happen would be that I get an allergic reaction.
But if I'm actually not allergic to it yet I don't try it, I'll be missing out on so much!

I was seriously damn nervous about trying it lol.
Then I remembered that I eat Sakae Sushi's salmon kakiage quite often and I'm not allergic to it so it should be ok :)

Lo and behold.

After I gulped down the 2 morsels my mouth and throat started getting itchy, sore and downright uncomfortable.
Quickly took an Antihistamine, my LIFESAVER.

So yeah, 2 little pieces of salmon did that to me. Made me feel shitty for half an hour.
Imagine if I'd eaten like a whole plate.

*shudders*

Look at this sexy beast.

Beef and cheese. Beef. And muthafookin' cheese. CHEESE I TELL YA.

My 2nd time buying this delicious comfort food. It's not cheap I tell you. About $4+?
And I don't like to eat microwave food.
Probs because when I studied in Australia I practically lived on microwave lunches, dinners and suppers.
Then I found out that they contain like, zilch nutrients and increase your chances of getting cancer.

BUT THEY'RE SO DARN CONVENIENT AND DELICIOUS THOUGH!! :(

LOOK. AT. THAT.

Does it not look like food from the heavens?

*smacks lips* Bellisimo.

Check out that meat sauce...Check out that CHEESE goddamnit. It's freakin' MELTED and OVERFLOWING.

And the pastry looks nice and flaky too doesn't it?

Well, I must say it wasn't perfect.

The meat sauce was a tad too salty and the pie crust got stale like REALLY quickly after removing it from the microwave. Hard and totally not fun to chew. But other than that it's really yummy :)

Of course it is, I mean COME ON look at that photo, it looks epic.

Finally...

SUPERTRONIMAX DELICIOUS!!

I love dark chocolate and I love mint. So yeah, this is basically the perfect combination.
But what I truly love about it is the marvellously cute and chic design. A pretty little tin box which I can put it my handbag and nibble on the delectable tiny chocolate balls on the go.

Heavenly.

Also love the design of the box, the colour combination is really fantastic! Look at that shade of green! Look at the brown! Look at how they blend so amazingly!! Look at the leaf! Look at the baubles! Ahhhh~

Lol sorry but I really can't help marvelling at the art put into this product.

Mad props.

Alright, end of this post which is like, all food.

-_-

Just wanna let you know I am tired OUT OF MY MIND RIGHT NOW.

Long week (as usual) and I can't wait to zonk out for 14 hours. Might be heading to a flea market when I wake up, shall blog about it if I do :)

This morning was the best for sleeping, beautiful cool and breezy rainy weather. Almost couldn't drag myself out of my bed nest.

Well, ta-ta for now!

Since it's a mega long weekend, I shall blog diligently :)

We shall see whether I keep my word lol~

累死我了。

My lunch/dinner today :)

Super duper yummy soft-shell crab maki ღ

This week has been hella tiring. Yesterday I ended school at 5++ (bless my teacher, our lesson was by right supposed to end 6pm, good lord) and by the time I reached home and showered, I was so tired it wasn't even funny anymore.

After several attempts to stay awake and clear my truckload of assignments (drinking tea, listening to music, dancing etc) I finally admitted defeated and went to bed.

Woke up at the ungodly hour of 3.30 AM to do my homework and guess what? My teacher told us that she decided to collect our work next week.

-_-

Hmmm so yeah, a little less assignments today but still figure I need to wake up at like 4 or 5 AM in the morning. I'm about to go shower now and then hit the sack lol.

I always know when it's fine for my body to go full speed ahead without much rest and when I really need to just stop, put everything on hold and go sleep. Been feeling so damn lethargic lately. Yesterday during the first few hours at school I swear I yawned like once every 15 minutes! Crazy.

And this morning I could feel myself getting sick. Gaaah no!!

Just gotta make it through this week...Damn stressful week with lots of tests and exams.
So totally looking forward to the weekend! Gonna relax...do my nails...clear any outstanding assignments...study for upcoming tests...go out for dinner on maybe Saturday night...hibernate lol~

Okay so yeah, I'm so excited to sleep in my lovely comfy bed lol!! Sleeping is the shiok-est feeling ever :D

La Tee Da~

Today's weather was just epic. It rained pretty much throughout the day yet the sky remained clear and bright! Kind of perked up my spirits :)
The rainy atmosphere really made me sleepy though, lol.

Practically screamed out in happiness when it was announced that my subject's supplementary lesson was cancelled. Could go home 2 hours earlier! Wheeee~

Wanted to take a 45-minute power nap, but I set my alarm to go off at AM instead of PM! Gaaah I was so pissed!! I remember waking up from a wonderful sweet dream (sigh! ❤) and absorbing my surroundings. When I realised it was dark already, I was so shocked!! I was like, "WHy dIdn't My ALaRM go OFf???!"

Seriously I really said it out to myself, in a very groggy voice.

Thinking that, with my kind of luck, it was already some ungodly hour like 1 AM and that my sleep cycle was completely screwed + I couldn't do my homework, I reached for my phone...

Yep it was only like 8 PM haha :)

So yeah, I feel so super energetic now thanks to a great 3 hours of sleep. I predict that tonight I'll not be able to fall asleep again. Tossing and turning until finally it feels so good to fall asleep...

And there goes my alarm tone for another 11-hour day at school.

-_-

Hmmm alright I gotta go now, probably gonna watch 家好月圆 and then do some homework.

Yeah I know, I've been posting like once a month haha I feel really bad about it! I want to blog so much...but I'm just so lazy~
Lol.
But seriously I've not neglected this blog, I actually accumulated folders upon folders of photos which I had meant to post up. So yeah, whenever I'm free and not procrastinating I'll post them :)

Wakey wakey!

Universal problem: waking up in the morning to go to school/work. Doesn't matter whether you were lucky enough to get in a wonderful 9 hours of sleep or you could only snooze for an hour or so due to late-night rushing of an assignment, you're gonna feel like absolute crap when the alarm goes off.

So frickin' accurate.

I find that making my alarm tune a pleasant song definitely makes a difference to the way I greet each morning. I pretty much set a new alarm tone every single night lol. In addition, I always make it a point to set something that's soothing. But, as depicted above, every single noise sounds like muthafreakin' mayhem when it rouses you from a deep sleep.

Yesterday was like any other morning. Dreadful start.

After the daily ritual of thinking to myself,

"Well. I'm freakin' tired. Gonna sleep through the day. Screw school. Too tired for life."

then subsequently dragging my body off the bed in an act of realist defeat.

But, a pleasant surprise awaited me after I went to perform my morning ablutions. I opened up my closet to get my earrings and lo and behold,

my mum had bought me new accessories and didn't tell me!

Gold bangle with cool patterns. I love the marble-y/ metallic effect on the pink and purple patterns!!

Super cute owl-watch-necklace.

I've always wondered about watch-necklaces. Do people really use them as a timepiece? I reckon it'd be pretty weird if you walk walk walk then suddenly lift up your necklace to see the time right? To me I think it's just a for show kinda thing. But that's just me.

Okay so this post is pretty much just to show you 2 of my new accessories and tell you about how my awesome Momma made my morning so much better!

Just thinking when I'll have the chance to wear them though...

Want to go out so badly but there's never a chance! Exams coming up...Homework piling endlessly...

In fact, I have 2 assignments I've yet to do lol.

And I still need to watch 家好月圆!Lol omg guess I'll have to burn the midnight oil tonight.

Surprisingly didn't conk out today even though my lessons ended at 5 PM.
The air-conditioning made me so sleepy...Eurgh!!

Lol okay that's all, bye-bye :)
