i think this may be the best thing i’ve ever picked up at Muji.

Tupera Tupera‘s epically straight forward “Picture Work Book” is full up on pages of blank faces and sweetly illustrated stickers of cartoony noses, candy-colored eyeballs and silly facial hair with which to decorate said faces.

in short, i am in love.

i meant to give this to my nephew as a present but i kinda want to keep it.

in other news i’m going to Osaka in March !!!

Spent the end of the year at Tagaytay

angus rib eye steak at Verbena / lipstick from Chuck’s brother


dimsum at Shang

Tried chicken feet for the first time… kinda slimy and springy. A little too many ligaments for my taste.

roadtrip staple

seed pods and fungus

New Year’s Eve Dinner back at Verbena

chilean seabass croquette with mango-lime salsa

baby lobster tail pomodoro

pineapple sherbet w/ tagaytay rosemary

duo of braised short ribs and bistro steak w/ potato gratin, chestnuts, red cabbage

secret antique store treasures

korean omelette party

Very simply, I like the way that this year began.

Christmas Eve dinner at Shangri la Hotel

wagyu prosciutto

fresh figs

Christmas Day: had lunch at one of the only places still open for the day at Little Tokyo

spicy wings

tempura everything

and finally, the pièce de résistance :

This beautiful, beautiful  Aquamarine Snakehead necklace by Nick von K that my boyfriend got for me (c/o his buddy Gino).

I love how grotesque the design is paired with the delicateness of the stone.

So obsessed : )

Happy Holidays, guys!

Last Saturday my brother and I decided to grab lunch at the Salcedo Weekend Market which is always super fun.

I ended up having the Inihaw na Hito (Grilled Catfish) with Paella Negra, and my brother had roast Italian chicken and little Japanese style pancake things.

So good!

Took some black and white photos of my cousins, half-siblings, extended familia a couple of Sundays ago. Film takes freaking forever to get processed and scanned over here, but on the plus side it’s also leagues cheaper compared to SG.

Finally, the box of all my errant Singaporean belongings has arrived after exactly one month and one day.

Treasures include:

a new Rhino ring to replace my original that fell on the floor and BROKE IN HALF

My silver skull ring from Japan that I had considered lost forever had my boyfriend not found it under his shelf

A couple vintage pins, magazine, tons of clothes, dvds, books, etcetera etcetera, all lovingly packed and sent.

Thanks bb!
