being right takes too long

trying something new with the outfit posting (since i've now got all this free time on my hands)
not a particularly interesting one
threw it on for desert with a friend
really wanted to show you this adorable bag from zara (thanks bee!)

(dress - guess, bag - zara, necklace - tiffanys & gift, bracelet - h&m)

the zara bag
im also absolutely in love with the h&m bracelet in the prev picture, and will def take a detailed picture soon

go for tea with a friend, tankard much?
chug, chug, chug!

the famed sushi island finally 

at the most random location, a tiny store front in little italy 
but omfg, amazing ayce sushi 
i usually dont like shirmp tempura too much, but this place was the best, freshest with the least excess batter
too bad we ordered so much that i can barely remeber how everything tasted 

such a good way of doing yam tempura!

we always tend to order way to much. this is prob half of it 

after spending hours looking at books
sat lunch with him at a vegetarian place in the annex 
loved this idea of putting water in retro milk bottles with a slice of lemon 
i kinda wanna just do this all the time now 

sweet potato fries

his wrap of some sort 

i committed the ultimate faux-pas by ordering just a smoothie 
the waitress looked at me like i was anorexic 
truth is, i actually just ate lunch at home 

cupcakes from the cupcake shoppe from him
not as good as for the love of cake 

but quite cute 
thanks =)

my funny mom woke me up at 8am for her present

so while she looked through everything, i promptly fell back asleep 
flowers and cake for mothers day
happy mothers day! - love you mom


idle-ness doenst particularily suit me
i've pretty much been extremely bored whenever at home this week
esp since day time tv sucks
neverthe less, it was amazing to spend the week doing absolutely nothing
except of course, shopping and seeing my favourite girls - wish i have pictures!
(and to the rest of you.. please see me soon!)

still, i am passing through

lately our dates have been kinda aimless
so on saturday we pretty much just walked around downtown to enjoy the nice weather
even though the sky looked like it was gonna rain soon
the temperature was still good, and it felt a lot like summer

we ended up in liberty village,
a little west of bathrust and king area

balzac's cafe
(the only reason i remembered the name is cause i .. googled)
its in the building of an old toy factory that's been converted into lofts
i cant say how good the coffee was because my knowledge in the area is largely from tim hortons 
but the cafe was absolutely gorgeous 

walking through liberty village
wish i could've taken pictures of the pretty little townhouses 
except.. residents prob would've called crime stoppers on me 

i loved that this old bank was now a restaurant 
i also loved the chandeliers

a dog park (stanley park i think?)
everyone around there seemed to have a dog 

this cheese shop on queen

know that show hoarders?
this was hoarders, turned into a store
except everything packed in here was actually really interesting
from chandelier beads to old school recording microphones to paintings
it really had it all

my original plan was to embark on a cupcake tour
but due to my shopping addiction (thanks bee!), things were a bit delayed 
and only one bakery was visited
it was called "for the love of cake"
and i was kinda disappointed with how small it was, and expected more variety 
it was definitely more of a order place 

the two cupcakes we had were still very good
this is an almond one with a blackberry and blackberry filling

a guinness chocolate cupcake 
not sure if there was a filling 
hopefully there's lots more cupcakes to come 

being home has been sorta.. underwhelming
it seems that all i do is eat and sleep
and im feeling very lethargic

im also feeling a bit displaced
is it weird for a long distance relationship to suddenly become.. not long distance?

on the to do list:
- see my fav girls, pronto
- try out sushi island
- put up my clothes for sale. any $ would be lovely
- shop shop shop and put some color in my wardrobe. no more blacks!


his birthday was on Wednesday
and after hearing everyone RAVE about guu
we decided to head there for the birthday dinner

the infamous 1+ hour wait is definitely true
luckily the nice weather allowed us to sit on the patio and sip some drinks
def helped the wait pass faster

i wanted to chew on that leaf, i really did 
(bamboo and melon cocktails)

for those of you who know me,
ease-dropping is my #1 hobby
so obviously i people watched and creeped on conversation
interestingly, lots of people were return customers
and one guy came with a party of.. 14, stating that he'd been there a couple of times already

bc tuna, lightly seared
def my favourite dish of the night 

scallops, lightly seared. also amazing

short ribs, grilled just right 

deep fried pork, or "pork nuggets!" 

deep fried something with corn inside
not my favourite of the night
its kinda too big, and the creaminess will fill you up

inside of the corn thing 

pan fried udon, the texture of the noodle was amazing
and their seaweed actually tastes like seaweed!

fried banana & ice cream desert
they sang happy birthday to him

overall a great experience
the atmosphere of the place was great
you cant help but smile and shout along and wave to strangers
id love to know what theyre shouting exactly though

would def recommend this place,
and i'd love to go back
id say going with a bigger group would be really fun cause you'd get to order more and try more
and if your bf is hesitant on eating thing like octopus or raw fish?
ignore him and order it anyways!
