Snow in Beijing

Hello dear readers.ย 

Sorry for the lack of posts this week, I just had one of my wisdom tooth extracted. Thinking of doing a post on it soon.ย 

Just want to write a short post.ย 

Image

A photo of Beijing while snowing, unfortunately I can’t take a clear picture of it snowing, nonetheless it was beautiful. This was back in December 2012. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

This is my first time experiencing snow falling down. Other times is when I was in Gothenburg, there was only a little snow flakes, I didn’t get to see the snow falling. Another time is in Oslo, I only got to see the snow all over the place, it was so white and magical.ย 

Speaking of Oslo and the scenery, when I was taking off from Oslo to Bangkok, the view from the plane was magnificent. I was so blown away, I didn’t even get to take a photo of it. The mountains were covered with snow, the rivers were beautiful, and the sun was setting. A sight I can never forget. I hope to see it again, this time, I’ll take a photo of it.ย 

So happy I finally got the chance to experience snow falling in Beijing. Shopping is amazing there!ย 

Also got to see the super cute pandas! It was so cold, the first visit to the zoo, all the pandas were sleeping. We went again on another day, fortunately they were all awake. What an adorable animal.ย 

This is it for tonight. Still trying to heal from the extraction. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Goodnight! See you sooon!ย

Bangkok Lights

Hello!

Image

Beautiful lights of Bangkok.

This photo was taken last year on a bridge, stop for a moment to capture this amazing view.

That big building is Central World. Shopping paradise.

Just one simple photo for today. I’ve loads more.

If any of you guys want to see more, do let me know, I’ll be glad to share. ๐Ÿ™‚

See you guys soon!

Copper Head Road

Hello everyone! Hope everyone had a good weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

A little post tonight, just want to share a new nail polish I got a few months back, finally used it.

I love love love Rubi’s nail polishes. It’s affordable and dries up pretty fast too!

If you don’t already know, Rubi is Cotton On’s sister brand. ๐Ÿ™‚

Image

It’s called Copper Head Road by Rubi. It’s a beautiful shimmery copper colour. When I ย applied it on, it wasn’t too glossy and also gives a little matte effect which I totally love. I only applied on one coat, I thought it was good enough. Until I decided to apply a top coat then it became glossy. Still loving it. ๐Ÿ™‚

One negative side of this nail polish is that it has a thick consistency, which makes it difficult to apply. Luckily, this can be fixed by adding a little nail polish remover to the nail polish. Just make sure to be very careful if you’re doing it. Putting too much nail polish remover into the nail polish can ruin the nail polish.ย ImageAnother picture, excuse my poor nail polishing skills. ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s all for tonight!

Goodnight and see you soon.

Oiso / Miso Korean Restaurant

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you guys had a good week ๐Ÿ™‚

Since I’ve been talking about the the Korean shop in my uni in my last post, and I had it today, I decided to write on it today. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am not too sure about the name of the restaurant, it’s either Miso or Oiso.

Image

Today I had Sunbudu Jjigae, that has seafood, tofu and some vegetable in it. Delicious.

Following are the pictures of what I’ve had. ๐Ÿ™‚

Image

Kimchi pancake. Loved it ๐Ÿ˜‰Image

Kimchi Ramen. Also delicious! Although it was spicy and it’s also hot at the same time! But totally enjoyed it.

Image

Doenjang Jjigae. This is bean paste soup. This is great for those who can’t take spicy, pretty good, for personally I like spicy, so I prefer Sunbudu Jjigae/ Kimchi Jjigae. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve had the seafood pancake and kimchi jjigae but I didn’t take a photo of it.

I loved Korean cuisine after trying this!

See you guys soon!

Goodnight!

Mi Na Rae Korean Restaurant

Hello everyone!

I’ll be posting some yummy pictures today. ๐Ÿ˜€

I went to a Korean restaurant, Mi Na Rae in Sri Petaling recently with my family, 6 of us.

Ever since I tried the Korean restaurant in uni, I’ve been a little obsessed with it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Although I don’t eat beef, there are still many choices to choose from and they are all yummy! I also rarely eat pork.

I wanted to have Korean that day and we were in Sri Petaling, so I Googled and came across this restaurant and decided to give it a try. ๐Ÿ™‚

Image

These are the side dishes. A few of my favorites have to be kimchi, potato salad and the fish paste. The side dishes are refillable, which is goood ๐Ÿ˜€

Image

This is what I ordered, Kimchi Jjigae. It’s was okay, not as good as the one I had in uni. Also, I didn’t ask what was in the soup, later I realize it was beef, should have asked before I ordered, but no biggie, I just didn’t eat the beef. ๐Ÿ™‚

Image

This is what my sister ordered. I forgot what it’s called, sorry bout that. Looks spicy but it’s actually not. Pretty yummy!

Image

Sorry for the photo, forgot to rotate it properly. Anyway, this is squid with gochujang sauce and rice. My mom really liked it, so I guess it was goooood!

Image

Korean savory pancake. I am disappointed with this dish. I really like the one that I eat in uni, but this one is not the same because it doesn’t have a trace of flour in it. Usually, Korean pancake has flour in it. I didn’t eat much of this. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Also, I didn’t manage to take photos of noodles, bibimbap and the Korean tea that was refillable. Really liked the tea. ๐Ÿ™‚

Overall, this restaurant is worth a try. I would go there again and try other food they have, if I’m at the area. ๐Ÿ™‚

See you guys soon! ๐Ÿ˜€

Mini Haul of Books to Phone Covers

Good day everyone!

Iโ€™ve a mini haul featuring some goodies my mom got for me while she was in Bangkok. ๐Ÿ˜€

Absolutely love Bangkok!

Firstly, Iโ€™ve used my book voucher to buy two language CD/ books (Korean and Thai) and a recipe book by Sorted. Love the Sorted boys!

Reason for buying the Korean and Thai language book, because we, (my family) often go to Thailand, so learning Thai would make communicating with the locals easier. As for Korean we started to watch Korean variety shows and my mom is watching Korean drama, if we understand then itโ€™ll be easier to watch without subtitles. ๐Ÿ™‚

Image

Always wanted to learn a new language. Itโ€™ll come to use in the future, I hope.

Image

And of course the recipe book that I canโ€™t wait to use the book! I love watching them cook on YouTube. So entertaining and the food always look so yummy!

Image

My lovely mom was in Bangkok, โ€˜shopping heavenโ€™. So I asked her to buy a few things for me, and she managed to find them! Most of them are iPhone covers because I love collecting them! Iโ€™ve thrown some because they were in a state where itโ€™s time to go. Old ones go new one comes!

Image

And also a mini set of Lancรดme lip-glosses. So adorable and I love the colors!

Thank you so much mom! ๐Ÿ˜€

Back to assignments!

See you soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Nostalgic

Good day everyone!ย 

Nostalgia, I don’t know if it’s only me but when I listen, smell or see something, that means something to me makes me reminisce of the memories from the past.ย 

For example, when I listen to Pixie Lott’s album, ‘Turn It Up’, it will always remind me of my Bangkok vacation with all of my family and relatives, back in 2009. Maybe it’s because I was listening to her album for the most of the time there. Not only that album makes me think of my vacation. Songs like J. Lo’s On The Floor, reminds me of my prom back in 2012. Certain songs that are always on radio, always stand for the beginning of a new chapter of my life, university. I quite like how the songs reminds me of good memories, or sometimes bad. Good or bad memories, it’s a part of you now.ย 

Smells, my father has this habit of putting fresheners at home, and there is this particular smell that reminds me of when I was back in Form 5, because that smell is always there when I was revising. Recently, my father used the fresheners once again, totally reminded me of the old times.ย 

Of course, seeing something, like a picture or an object reminds me of where the object come from, etc. However, not all the objects have sentimental value to me, therefore, there is no memories about it. Only certain objects. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Don’t know what this post will be categorized, lifestyle?ย 

See you guys later! ๐Ÿ™‚ย
