Feb finally came to an end!! So many things happened this past month, but I’m glad they are all over now.
This past month, what’s really tormenting is that each time i gave my explanation, I felt like i’m just finding excuse for myself. I guess i don’t deserve to scratch off that line in my resolution. Oh well..
I guess the thought and anticipation for CNY really did tide me through this period. However, to my disappointment, CNY was really dull this year. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because I was too excited for it, but nonetheless, it felt awesome to be able to get a breather and gather with the family!
“Month in pixels” take me quite awhile to post because of the weebly image system. I wish they’d put a QTY bar below the “image” widget, and allow me to type the amount of “image” widgets i need so that the system can auto pop them into the post instead of having me drag the widget one by one. It’s so tedious, laggy, and troublesome!
Okay, as usual, photo spam coming up!
P.s. random but.. I’M IN LOVE WITH MY SONY A5000! It feels like the best splurge everrr.
I bought many onigiri molds online so i can make some to surprise the boyfriend on Vday. However, our Vday did not include a picnic, so I had to put my equipment to work earlier than Feb 14.
Here’s the full panda ones! We have a thang for pandas ❤
They were fairly easy to make. I just hate the cleaning up part though.
I need to learn more recipes to see this smile again.
I think my hair has grown significantly longer! Please tell me they did…
And Mr. Muk (our kite) took flight in less than 10 seconds, I’m not even kidding. The wind was so strong, he soar towards the sky, slicing some rose petals off a bride’s bouquet on his way up. I thought we were going to appear on a murder news report.
Feb was a celebratory month for me. I had Vday, Ernest’s birthday and CNY to keep me focus ahead before I go crazy over all that stress. On the boy’s birthday, I allowed myself to unwind and treated him to SuFood!
My charming birthday boy 😀
Waiting for the food! Did not know what to expect but I decided to come because I remember Jitwoon recommending this place to me.
The appetizer was pretty awesome! I especially liked the middle one.
But the cider tasted like cough syrup to me. I squeezed my eyes shut with every sip. We were told that it’s supposed to cleanse your palate.
THE SALAD WAS DA BOMB!! I’D GO BACK ANY DAY JUST TO EAT THIS SALAD!
I have been craving for these Rosemary bread sticks since that day! They have quite an addicting taste.
Birthday boy busying food-stagraming too.
I chose the pumpkin soup and it was mehh… Not enough flavor.
On the other hand, the soup my bf chose was delicious!! I guess their food standard is pretty inconsistent.
We were quite puzzled when they served us a calzone. Not because we’ve never eaten one (i ate some during my time in Ice Edge Cafe), but because we did not recall ordering a calzone. Nonetheless we dug in and…
When we were almost done, the waitress approached us with an apology and replaced the calzone with the potato pizza. Turns out we were served the wrong dish, but I was surprised they did not even ask if we would like a replacement or to continue with the calzone, and instead just swiftly replaced the dish. I’m not complaining though, we got to try an additional main dish thanks to them!
I thought my bf’s seaweed star pizza was the best out of the 3 pizzas because there was more flavor. The bf did not quite like it because of the wasabi.
Potato pizza is HUGEEE!
I continued the bf’s celebration by bringing him to “The Company of Cats”!
This fluffy cannot stop meowing to the workers on the other side of the door.
My fave furball of the night, and I’m sure you guys can see why!
SO FREAKING CUTE (FAT), NO?
I think my phobia for tamed cats have thoroughly cured! I went to a cat cafe in a DRESS. Can you believe it?!
I think i chose the wrong time to go (8pm) because half of the cats were asleep or getting ready to sleep. But i remember the other time at Neko no Niwa that the cats were more active at night! Hmm..
This one is hyperactive!
The calm kitty i stuck to most of the time. It didn’t want to come out, but it didn’t mind my stroking. 🙂
For some reason this feels like a reenaction of Rapunzel.
Cat towers overload!
I didn’t feel very comfortable being in the confined space with strangers who acted a little “know-it-all”.
Loafing under da table lika boss.
Busy with the cat toys hahahah
They seem to only like the blue string one
I was pretty nervous being in there without long pants but I warmed up to these fluffies eventually.
I can’t decide who had a better workout, my boyfriend or da cats.
I’m just busy selfie-ing away.
With fat & lazy Bella.
2 of the cats were in a tense fight and despite all the commotion, this one didn’t even blink!
And finally… Bella woke up. After we left… -.-
Secretly ordered a Oreo Cheesecake from Cat & the Fiddle, and had them deliver it straight to his house because I didn’t have time to buy a cake after school. Much thanks for his sister & Mom for helping to receive the cake and not revealing the surprise!
I was a little too happy, which explains the shaky hands hahahahaha
Happy 23rd Birthday, Baby! ❤
The cake was AWESOME!! I read up on the reviews and was a little skeptical & worried at first, but the cheesecake was creamy and rich, totally my cup of tea. I got to bring a few slices home for my parents to try, and both of them were obsessed!
Hope you had a good birthday, darling!
2 days later it was Vday with my boy! My fave red roses in pink wrapping 🙂
Went to feast at Greendot Payalebar Square Mall!
Waiting for our food!
We ordered the tom yum hot pot for 2. Super tasty I keep craving for more!
Love the salad!
With my Valentine ❤
Boyfriend surprised me with something i completely didn’t expect…
JOE LABERO MAGIC SHOW! (gasp)
Super duper excited!
There were these dark “shadows” lurking around the waiting area, spooking me out.
Very vintage, I like.
There were clips of old magic tricks playing on the screens, and when the show started we were not allowed to use the camera. The show had a pretty dark & intense feeling, but its my first true magic show and i didn’t really know what to expect. Until today I’m still trying to get myself to believe that Joe Labero actually disappeared before my eyes and appeared behind me in last than 5 seconds. I really don’t get it..
A far shot of the magician himself. A little shaky because he caught me snapping and asked me to go forward and take a proper picture with him (which i didn’t because I was shy and slightly afraid LOL).
And my sweet, literally sweet, Valentine gift. Thanks baby, love them!!
Red roses x Peony & Blush Suede. Too much love!
And 5 days later, it was CNY day 1! Been looking forward to CNY for so long, finally, this day has arrived!! Out to bainian at grandma’s house with my family 🙂
Yiyi & me!

All the ladies 🙂
Jiejie & me!
The 21st century Common Interest.
Happy birthday Po po!
I know it’s been long since i last updated my braces, but that’s because there wasn’t much of a difference after all my problematic teeth have been fixed. Its been basically power bands on straight teeth to pull them even closer together.
Looking back, it’s been a year since I first gotten braces! After one year, on Feb 2015, my dentist decided it was time to introduce me to “ELASTIC”.
This small bands have been giving me the worse headaches ever!! In addition, they kept snapping everytime I eat, and prevented me from opening my mouth wide enough to consume food. Sigh..
My current smile 😀
Do you see the elastics?
Better view of it. Its main purpose is to shift the top row backwards to reduce the overbite.
I look lika vampire when I open my mouth,,,
I have a bad feeling I will have to keep wearing these elastics in different combinations for the remaining months. Sigh..
Oh well…That’s it for now!
