Tiara x Catching up

Tiara
~Ad~

How long has it been?

Must have been forever. Felt like forever, at least.

Life’s been pretty hectic of late. Gone were the days I wrack my brain to decide where to visit for brunch tomorrow, or what show to catch after the gazillion-th one I’m watching. My daily activities include, but are not limited to, trying to get the most urgent of my errands done. That in itself is a never-ending task. Bummer. 

I’m still updating my Dayre in the most inefficient, unprofessional way - #throwback.

I miss time alone.
I miss being free.
I miss brunches, and I miss my girls.
I miss coffees and cafes.
I miss books and I miss catching Vampire Diaries.
And Gossip Girl.
And Sex and the City.
And How I Met Your Mother.
And 90210.
And hopelessly unrealistic Taiwanese dramas.
I miss lying in bed till my back aches.
I miss it when my day is night, and my night is day.

But for now, a little bubble bath will have to do.

Here’s leaving this space with a touch of sugary gesture from the people at Tiara!

[Claire Jacket by Tiara]
Brown, Size S

"TIARA is committed in creating high quality and fashionable pieces for women who have a great sense of style. We differentiate ourselves by paying close attention to details, right down to choosing the right fabric for our designs."


My love for outerwear is no big secret. In a complimenting neutral brownish nude shade, this timelessly classic color is hard not to love. Versatile, yet sophisticated and chic, this throw-on tie-back cardigan / blazer jacket is a piece that’ll effortlessly find its way to the top of my wardrobe must-have list.
Really, what’s not to love?

Feeling pretty;

Be Different, With Tiara.


Thank you Bell for the love! (:

Family x Roland Restaurant

Family; The most basic yet essential building block of relationships.

This is a throwback to the one time we head for Roland Restaurant for dinner just because I was going through a very tough time. I am extremely thankful that they rallied behind me, and gave me the most valuable form of support, and I didn't even have to ask.

Dinner as a family can sometimes be taken for granted as an everyday mundane activity. Yet, times like this I feel really blessed.

Extremely.

To see them put on a smile for me, crack jokes, and sacrifice their time to make sure I don't feel alone; this unconditional love defines a Family. People who will selflessly be there regardless. People put into my (your) life for a reason.

I'm so grateful I have a close-knit family.

*****

Roland Restaurant
Block 89, Marine Parade Central
#06-750
Singapore 440089


Chili Padi / Sambal Chili also defines us. ^^


Baby Squid


The ever nonsensical little brother.


I am my dad's daughter. Our characters are copies of each other!


And these two are almost exactly alike!



But I look like my mom, or so everyone tells me. (:





Clay-pot Tofu


Chili Crab

I very much prefer my mom's. I do think this is a little sweet over savory. It is still delicious, just not spicy enough for my family.


Undying love for Fried Buns


Mee Goreng

Still a tad too sweet.

All in all, Roland Restaurant served up a good selection of Chinese cuisine. However, just based on my personal palette, most dishes were too sweet for my liking.

But I did enjoy the warmth of the company that night. <3
