La Vie En Rose

Image
Photo : Pinterest Roses are one of the most notorious flowers out there, dating it's popularity and uses even back to the Cleopatra's era. It has different meaning and symbolism during different times, like in the Roman Empire such as love, sensuality, beauty, passion and balance. And you know what... coincidently (not really) it's also MY middle name, 'Rosa', which is the latin name of Rose, HA! This could be the reason why I feel some sort of connection to the flower and the smell of Roses, even though aesthetically I would favor Calla-Lily.

I know, I know... A lot of people likes to associate Rose scents with something boring, also things that are old and outdated, as it often describes as "the smell of my grandma's cupboard", or even "the smell of my grandma". Smell and the flower itself, often embodies femininity, lady-like, classy and elegant attitude.
But I don't believe that's true! If that's the case, why is it that even…

Paris sous la Neige

I don't know whether this is a miracle or an effect of global warning, but I'm glad that I could witness Paris covered in snow!!! As you might know, I have been living in here for quite some times now, 4 and half years, to be exact, and within that period, this is the first time that it has been snowing this heavy.
When my weather forecast inform me that Paris will be snowing, I told myself not to get too excited since the snow always turn out to be a disappointment, a.k.a as I would say, The Dandruff-like Snow. But once again, Paris has proven me that It will keep on supplying me with surprises and I will never  get bored while living here. 


This surprise also means that I was not prepared for this situation thus leaving me feeling naked and cold while walking around the street in my inappropriate attire. Like what kind of shoes do you guys wear in this kind of weather?

Foodie Journal : London Edition

I love food. So much. Honestly, I think I spent most of money on eating out. So let me bring you to my food journey in London and make your mouth water... p.s there are so many snacks and food consumed, in between this pictures. 




1. Bone Daddies in St. Christopher's Place. Got the T22 ramen, with pulled chicken with some bamboo, nori and shiitake mushroom. My friend, swears-by the duck ramen, but unfortunately was not available in this location. Got some mochi ice cream as well (not pictured)


2. (I think) Shake Stack burger with portobello mushroom from Shake Shack in Covent Garden. As a burger lover, I've been dying to try Shake Shack since it's all over the internet. I must say, it didn't disappoint! I was brought to heaven. I love how the Shake Stack burger is cheesy, crispy, meaty and mushroomy. 



3. Honestly, what kind of trip to London without a visit to Nando's?Got the 1/4 Peri-Peri Chicken with Garlic Bread and Peri-salted Chips. Really love the sauce and was t…

Travel Diary : Last Trip of 2017

Happy new year to all my beautiful people! For me, 2017 was such an interesting journey and honestly a bit rocky since I wasn't fully feeling like myself. But I'm grateful for of the lessons and experiences that I have faced and I'm excited with what 2018 has to offer! I think I'm optimistic (or at least trying to be) about it!

I spent the New Year's Eve with my most beloved friends, singing our hearts out and feeling nostalgic with a lot of early 2000's R&B song and High School Musical in a Karaoke place in Paris. But just a few days before that, I was in London for a full week with one of my best friends.

Even though London is only a train away from Paris, it was the first time I've ever been to the UK since the visa stuff always demotivates me. London was very beautiful, dynamic, expensive and unexpectedly bigger than I imagined but I don't know why, it some how didn't meet my expectations, and I don't even know what are my expectations.…
