When Feeling Special: Lady M

Aside from my usual “When In Doubt”, I also have the “When Feeling Special” category. I wrote a post about that couple of months ago here.

So, why the unusual category for Lady M?

I love Lady M’s mille crepes. The texture of the crepes is undeniably soft and moist — almost as if you are chewing a super soft whipping cream. one slice, two slice, three slice, and so forth and so on. Next thing you know, the $8 – $8.25 slice mille crepe is no longer there. You ended up looking inside your wallet and your face filled with regret. Especially if you have 2 slices of mille crepes; which means you paid almost $17 for desserts that take no more than ten minutes to savor.

Sad? Definitely.

But don’t let this deter you from trying Lady M’s mille crepes. I have been to Lady M couple of times and always get their original mille crepes and green tea mille crepes. They have plenty of flavors you can choose from but with that staggering price point per slice, I guess I will try all of their products once I win the NY lotto. LOL.

Green Tea mille crepes and original mille crepes.

It might turn big on the screen but don’t let that fool you 😛

 

image-30-07-15-08-33

The green tea mille crepes. The matcha is not that strong so if you are a matcha lover you might be disappointed in this one. I still like it tho.

 

Like I have said, this type of desserts are in the medium to premium price point so unless you are not that concerned with the money inside your wallet and your bank account then by all means, you can enjoy Lady M’s crepes and cakes every single day. For me, once or twice a month is definitely more than enough to savor these lovelies.

As for the service inside the boutiques, well to be honest I never try dining inside their ‘tiny’ cafe so I cannot say much but I heard from several bloggers out there that the service was not that great. Plus, you still have to give them gratuity so in the end you will have to pay approx. $20 just to sit down and munch a dessert that will be gone in less than ten minutes.

Might as well just go to Maison Kayser and eat there. Oh well. 😀

P.S.: Lady M has several locations in the US, Singapore, and Hong Kong. Since I live in NYC then this one that I am reviewing is for the US based location – Bryant Park branch. click here for more information.

When In Doubt: Karam

Ever since I was a kid, I was already accustomed with a lot of different cuisines from around the world. My mom fed me a mixed of Indonesian, Chinese, and Dutch delicacies as soon as I was old enough to consume solid food. When I hit kindergarten and mingled with other kids for after school activities (you know – ballet, music, math, and things like that), I became aware of other types of foods and drinks — especially since I went to an international school with kids from different cultures. I got introduced to basic Indian foods, Japanese foods, even some of Western food staples like spaghetti bolognese and sausages had become some sort of evening snack after I finished got tutored.

So basically that’s how I became a foodie like now. (thanks to my mom lol)

My introduction to Middle Eastern cuisine (and Turkish too since they are sorta similar to each other – hence the difference in pronunciation and ingredients) was sorta coincidence when I was spending a Sunday afternoon with my parents in a mall that was just opened in my hometown. (okay i know i will have to write a diary in this paragraph LOL). I passed by the food stand and thought “wow this food is kinda interesting. It has lamb rolled in a pita like bread with yummy looking sauces. I have to try it.” my parents must had read my mind or something that they actually agreed to purchased the so-called kebab roll and tried it. I had my lamb sliced kebab with vegetables and their special sauce in a roll — my parents opted the chicken or I believe my mom actually went for all veggies. As soon as I bite the wrapped roll, there was this happy jolly smile appeared on me. I loved the kebab roll so much that it became a snack in the evening every Sunday (aside from sushi and noodles) whenever we had a chance to shop at that mall. Then I found myself trying Turkish and Middle Eastern foods at some restaurants located in expatriate areas and hotels.

So when boo said something about this hidden gem located in Bay Ridge that specializes in Lebanese food, without a doubt I knew I had to go and gave their food a try.

And what happen? I got hooked! Like seriously, addicted!

I tried their Zaatar, falafel sandwich, yogurt salad (or Tzatziki if you are more aware of this one), tabouleh, makanek sandwich, sujok sandwich, brain sandwich, lamb shish kebab, chicken shawarma sandwich, and most recently kafta mechwi platter and all of them were delicious!

too bad I only took 3 pictures among all the foods I have tried but lemme share them with you 😉

image-07-07-15-06-45-15

lamb shish kebab sandwich! so good!

 

image-07-07-15-06-45-16

my brain sandwich! AWESOME! FUCKING JAW-DROPPING AWESOME!

 

image-07-07-15-06-45-18

Kafta Mechwi platter to share with boo. consists of beef and lamb with rice and 2 sides (I chose yogurt and tabouleh). they gave us free pitas and pickles too.

 

Price wise? Well, this is not the fancy restaurant type of thing so do not be surprised if the place is somewhat cramped and small because almost all Karam customers come here to either eat at the spot (considering they already know what they wanted) or to buy the foods to go. Rest assured, the portion is quite fulfilling (especially the platter or combo like my kafta mechwi one) and you won’t need to splurge a lot. Unless you want to try different kind of stuff (like their sweets).

While I am typing this, I am longing for their brain sandwich. Karam, why are you so far away from where I live?! Life’s not fair 😛

When In Doubt: Cantina Place To Beach

When I am in an area where I rarely visit that much, I always try my best to eat something new. If you are a native of Brooklyn or more specifically Coney Island then you can surely skip reading this post.

LOL…:P

Anyway, yes even tho Coney Island is not as fancy as Long Beach or the Hampton but I loved this area due to the fact that it is the only place in New York City where I can ride the iconic ‘Cyclone‘ and recently launched again ‘Thunderbolt‘. And it is the only place near where I live where I can stroll around the beach for free.

OK, well NYC has other beaches where you can stroll around for free but the excitement is not the same as Coney Island.

So boo and I went to Coney Island sometime last June and we both rode on the Thunderbolt and played a lot of arcade games. Hours passed by and we were hungry all of a sudden. That was when I noticed this place called Cantina Place To Beach that sold quick snacks and foods like tacos, burgers, hot dogs, quesadillas, etc. I was contemplating whether I wanted to eat that (and boo was also doing the same thing — I swear, we acted like twins sometimes lol) and after looking at other restaurants and bars, we decided to go back and ate at Cantina.

image-07-07-15-06-45-12

Bud Light and Stella Artois. Cheers!

 

image-07-07-15-06-45-13

Originally we ordered the 6 tacos consists of pork, veggie, and chicken. They were running out of pork that night so we decided to go with chicken and veggie. Along with side of guacamole, salsa, and chips.

 

image-07-07-15-06-45-14

Definitely had a lot of fun 😉

 

How’s the taste? Well tbh, they were quite generous with the fillings inside the tacos but I would not call those tacos excellent though. They were pretty tasty especially the veggies but they did not convince me that much to scream “I’d love to go back there asap”. Quite possibly because I have had better tacos elsewhere but I would not mind to sit there and maybe order their chips and guacamole and salsa while sipping nice cold beer or margarita.

Funny story was that we only ordered 2 sets of pick any 3 tacos (each set has 3 tacos) but in the end they gave us 7 lol.. talk about feeling lucky that night 😉

Price wise? well, it is still in the affordable-medium category and I believe I paid around $40 ish for all the foods and drinks and if you are the one who concerned about portion and worry about your bucks then you can definitely give this one a try while you are at Coney Island. Well, if you are already bored with Nathan’s of course 😉

P.S.: apparently they also housed a 21+ club and bar next door so if you are the ‘party people’ then you can definitely go next door and have a blast. 😉

When In Doubt: Momofuku Milk Bar

This is going to be a short post — ah finally! 😉

I was already aware of this place called Momofuku Milk Bar but I was just never bothered to check it out. Years passed by, seasons passed by, I graduated college, I enrolled in a graduate school — still my legs did not even care that much to go there.

Until sometime last May or so when I was watching Masterchef on Fox and saw Christina Tosi who happens to be one of the judges. I googled her and my research led me to…

Yes, you got it! Momofuku Milk Bar!

I am not going to write a whole paragraph about her but in case you are wondering, click here.

Momofuku Milk Bar (later on Milk Bar) specializes in baked goods and cakes and also this yummy (but quite pricey) cereal milk bar.

image-07-07-15-06-45-10

Soft cereal milk with cornflakes. $5

image-07-07-15-06-45-11

Unique! It melts fast tho 😛

One thing that I really dislike about this cereal milk is that it melts really fast so if you want to brag this dessert on Instagram or other social medias, my suggestion is: take couple of pictures while you’re inside the store and post it later. I finished eating those cereal milk in less than 3 minutes. I should have just ate it inside the store but the lighting inside was somewhat dark so… 😛

I also purchased some of their cookies like the compost cookies, corn flake marshmallow choco chip cookies, and the blueberry and cream cookies. All of them tasted delicious but my favorites would be the compost and the choco marshmallow.

for more of their products: http://milkbarstore.com/main/menu/

You can find Momofuku Milk Bar stores in Manhattan and Brooklyn but if you are visiting to NYC and don’t want to be bothered traveling somewhere strange then my best bet is to go to their midtown Manhattan location.

Things That I Love: URBANSPACE

Way before I moved to New York City, I always knew that this city offers something different when it comes to food fair and distinctive cuisines. I know that NYC is one the most vibrant city in the world — hence the nickname ‘truest melting pot on earth’. If you don’t believe me, just go to Queens county especially around Jackson Heights and Elmhurst area. Or if you are the one who loves looking for something different, then pay a visit to Brooklyn and you will know what I mean.

If i ever write a book about New York City and its’ culinary feast, guaranteed it’ll be as thick as a Bible.

Okay, back to what I am going to write about…

After those dreaded winter days, we New Yorkers are always looking forward for spring and summer. When the temperature is nice and hot, we like to indulge in all those foods at the vendors or pop up markets located in Manhattan. Tasting all different varieties of cuisines from around the world together with a cold beer or sangria or lemonade or whatever cold drinks we can get. And yes, thank you so much for Urbanspace NYC.

Read more about Urbanspace here.

Urbanspace is a pop up food vendors that open during spring and summer for certain period of times in Manhattan. What I love about Urbanspace is that there is no limitation when it comes to the food they offer; whether you wanted a nice to-go gelato or arancini balls or you wanted to splurge your taste bud in a nice piping hot pad thai with yummy tacos then this is your place to go. There are several locations in Manhattan and they are mostly in the very accessible plus touristy areas. However, mind you that Urban space does not last long — mostly around one to two months so you gotta make sure to follow their Facebook or Twitter or their website for further information.

Oh yes, I just remember they actually held holiday markets in two locations sometime in the fall till before Christmas so if you are planning to visit NYC in November and December and want to experience this then make sure you mark your calendar 🙂

I have visited 3 of the Urban space markets this past few months and each market offers different varieties of vendors even though later on i could see the same vendors again at the other Urban space locations. The first one is the Urban Space Garment District held from May 4th till June 14th 2015. I got back at least three times because I was so in love with Arancini balls from Arancini bros and the lobster roll from Red Hook Lobster Pound.

Ragu and Nutella Arancini

image-07-07-15-06-45-4

Nutella arancini. THIS IS THE BOMB!

image-07-07-15-06-45-5

Ragu arancini

image-07-07-15-06-45-6

Lobster roll from Red Hook Lobster Pound. DELICIOSO!!!

 

Okay, the ragu arancini from Arancini Bros was delicious but the Nutella Arancini was way more than delicious — IT WAS F**KINGLY AWESOME! I mean, seriously, when you bite on that arancini, the nutella chocolate just melt in your mouth together with the sweetness of cinnamon that coated the outer part of the rice balls. When typing this, I feel like calling Arancini Bros and tell them to deliver those balls every single day to my apartment. I forgot how much they costs per piece but I bought half dozen arancinis for around $12 ish. I know it’s a little steep for a small rice balls but trust me — once you bite one you want another one and another and another … 🙂

As a lobster fan I am very critical when it comes to lobster roll. Lobster roll is one of the comfort food that I can’t have every single day because of the price (around $13 to $15 even $19 in some places). Well i know it is expensive because it is lobster meat anyway but I am always upset when a lot of place shouted something like “we have the best lobster roll” when in reality it shouted different things. Either they don’t put enough meat inside the warm toast roll or they don’t season the lobster meat. When I saw the Red Hook Lobster Pound booth, I was so excited I feel like hugging the lady behind the counter LOL. The lobster meat was so good and delicious; perfectly seasoned and cooked and best of all — they were not stingy with the portion. Finished eating it in like 5 minutes but for $15 and the quality, it was very worth it.

The second Urbanspace market that I went to was the one in Flatiron called Madison Square Eats. Seriously speaking, this one was the least of my favorite because of the size of the market and it got super cramped during the night time. However, because of the Teresita Fernandez exhibition held nearby so I decided to just go there and tried the Asian Hot Dog by Asiadog.

image-07-07-15-06-45-7

Ginny Hot Dog by Asiadog. $5

The Ginny Hot Dog has beef frank with kim chi and nori inside. I added a little bit of kick — which is the sriracha chili sauce. Actually without the sauce it was already delicious but I was just in the mood for some spice that night. Who knew that kimchis can actually increased the nom-nom factor inside a hot dog?! 😉

The third location (and by all means it is still open till July 26th 2015) is the Broadway Bites located at the intersection of 33rd Street and Broadway. I love this location because it has this feeling of ‘summer food markets’ in the big city. I tried summer rolls from Two Tablespoons (which surprisingly were vegetarian rolls and were so good) and homemade lemonade by Renegade lemonade (pictured here).

image-07-07-15-06-45-17

Summer rolls from Two Tablespoons : Tofu and Quinoa with Almond Sauce and Lentils, Beets and Goat Cheese.

I am not a vegetarian but I love eating lots of vegetables and enjoy them in every type of food — especially rolls. So when I looked at Two Tablespoons booth and saw how they prepared the rolls, I just had to try them. I got lentils, beets, and goat cheese rolls and also the tofu, quinoa, and almond sauce rolls. The lentils rolls was kinda unique especially with the goat cheese but the tofu, quinoa, and almond sauce was even way better. that one was definitely the winner rolls for me. And yes, kudos to Two Tablespoons because they really packed the rolls with lots of vegetables. With 2 rolls for $7.50 those rolls were definitely worth the bucks. And if you don’t like rolls then they have the summer salad too. Vegetarian or not, you will definitely like this one. I think I am going back to try their sweet corn with coconut and curry sauce — i have a feeling that is also gonna be good! 😉

So, are you dying to munch on those delicious rolls?! Then go to the nearest Urban Space market and taste all the foods and drinks before they run out of time.

P.S.: updated as per 7/20/2015 Urban Space Broadway Bites is still open until 7/26/2015 from 11 AM to 9 PM.

When In Doubt: Shogun Sushi

Now before I start this post, let’s just say that I won’t compare this place at all with Japanese All You Can Eat Restaurants in Manhattan or Queens or New Jersey. This place is located in Borough Park neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. As far as I know, there are not many Japanese restaurants in this area.

I have been to Shogun Sushi at least twice with boo and I found it to be pretty okay consider the price and the foods they offer. Some foods were tend to be bland (avoid ordering the ramen if you are a devoted fan of Ippudo or Totto or HideChan or Santouka) but other than that, they are pretty tasty.

image-07-07-15-06-45-9

sushi selections. the portion was quite small tho.

 

image-07-07-15-06-45-8

some of the rolls we got. the rolls were pretty tasty. the gyozas were good too. sashimis were okay.

I went there during the weekend so the price was around $20 per person I believe (excluding tax and gratitude). Some of the appetizers were not bad, boo’s udon was pretty good, the ramen was not good at all, the gyozas were good (for BK standard), the mussels were okay, the kani salad was good, the sashimi was pretty okay (but yeah it was small and I believed probably were frozen earlier), the nigiri sushi was not that bad but stay away from ordering ikura nigiri, and the selection of rolls were pretty delicious but then again, it won’t really give you the greatest after taste.

Or maybe I have been spoiled too much with authentic Japanese sushi and bento take outs in Manhattan? 😉

If you live around Borough Park neighborhood and are desperate to eat Japanese without banging your buck then you might consider this AYCE place a try. Their service was pretty fast but I cannot comment if you go during peak dinner time as we always go after 9 at night so there might be a little wait.

Mijn Mode Keuze: Kate Spade blue Leslie

Since i am the sole owner of this blog/web then i can post anything i want.

Including fashion 😉

If you read my “about me” section, you’ll notice that i added some paragraph about my degree that is somewhat related to fashion industry. Yes, i have a bachelor degree that is concentrated in business and fashion marketing management. As now, i am a graduate student with a concentration in another field that is nowhere near fashion industry yet needed also sometimes by fashion peeps. Ha, i will let you guess and wondering 😉

Anyho, i am a Leo and a July baby and my birthday is coming real soon. If anybody else have their own wish list for their birthday then me personally, i rarely create or even write wish list for birthday let alone Christmas presents. What i would do is i save money then will most likely forget what i’m going to buy later on. Funny thing tho, God always give me hints sometimes whenever i am at a store or browsing something online on certain things. Like for example, i went to Zara and tried some of their pants. They were running out of my size but i lovedddd those pants. I was murmuring “yea maybe not my day” on my way home. Then all of a sudden, i was walking around Herald square when my gut told me: “you’re here already. Now drag the lazy butt to that Zara right now!”

So i went inside and lo and behold, those pants were there — the exact type and design i wanted, in my size! And then another blouse, another t shirt, another top, another skirt! And they were on sale, ladies and gentlemen! Even tho the sale still gonna costs you at least more than $50 but heck i already have the money! I bought them and couldn’t be happier!

That’s the weird side of me, lol :p

Ok what am i rambling?! Oh yea about my birthday well about a week ago or so i saw the announcement from Kate Spade about their 4th of July weekend sale that has been extended until 7/7/15. I browsed around and found a nice blue handbag that kinda reminds me of Saint Laurent’s handbag. I was contemplating of getting it but at the same time i also loved another handbag that can be easily modified as a clutch. And then i began procrastinating. A day went by, weekend went by, and next thing you know : 2 days before the sale end came. That dreaded email notification that came like crap early in the morning yet i thanked for reminding me. So i looked, there it was, the blue handbag is still there and on sale and great thing was, i could apply more discount! Meaning more saving! Can i hear Amen?!? 😉

Beautiful um Bellissimo!!! Love the color, love the design, even more so : loveddd the discounts baby!

So here is my fashion choice post: Kate Spade Blue Leslie handbag.

My early birthday present 🙂

PS: i own two other handbags that are also from Kate Spade and everybody complimented them. My mom is also a fan of Kate Spade and she is always pleased with the bag’s quality and material.

And yes, i don’t mind higher end designer handbag too; still saving for that cute Louis Vuitton Alma or Chanel lamb skin flap. Everybody seems into Chanel boy flap — seriously i don’t like the Chanel boy collection kinda too masculine for me :p

Yours Truly 🙂

When In Doubt: Ippudo

When you talk about ramen, most likely you will hear three names that most people are familiar with. it’s either the Totto Ramen (which is famous for its’ forever long time waiting list), Santouka (Santoka ramen) which is also quite famous for the pork cheek, and then we have Ippudo which (unfortunately) is also famous for its’ East Village always-takes-forever-to-wait-in-line location and delicate soup broth.

Wait, what ever happen to Ichiran ramen? aren’t they famous too?

Technically, we are speaking about ramen in New York City so since Ichiran has not expanded to NYC then post about Ichiran will have to wait until I actually travel to Japan again — maybe later on with my boo 😉

Ok, enough rambling.

I have been to Ippudo (both East Village and Hell’s Kitchen location) for couple of times and I must say that they still offer the best ramen in NYC area. I would not give them perfect five stars though because the portion was somewhat little for me (even after the kaedama i still crave for more lol blame my salty tooth i guess) and they tend to charge more for the toppings. If I have to compare to smaller yet more “Japanese” like Hide-Chan ramen then i would say I definitely put Hide-Chan on top and then Ippudo second.

So that night after the Broadway show  I asked boo whether he wanted to eat at Ippudo because I knew they open pretty late on Saturday. since the nearest ippudo from Longacre theatre would be the Hell’s kitchen one then we agreed to just went there. It was around 11 PM when we got there and there would be a ten minutes wait. lo and behold, it did not take ten minutes (more like four lol) before we were seated.

What did we order?

image-07-07-15-06-45

My order of Karaka-Men: The original “Tonkotsu”(pork) broth with an added kick; thin noodles with Ippudo’s special blend of hot spices, topped with pork chashu, sesame kikurage mushrooms, cabbage, scallions, and fragrant garlic oil.

 

image-07-07-15-06-45-1

Boo’s order of Akamaru modern ramen: A more bold translation of the original pork broth; thin noodles topped with Ippudo’s secret “Umami Dama” miso paste, pork chashu, cabbage, sesame ki- kurage mushrooms, scallions, and fragrant garlic oil.

 

Both ramen tasted delicious although I just wish the Karaka-men has more kick on the spiciness level. To be honest, every time I go to Ippudo I always order Karaka-men because it has the perfect balance of delicate pork broth and spicy paste. Boo’s akamaru was also good and perfect for those who does not favor spicy paste at all. Although in the end boo actually thought that my karaka men was not that spicy and he said if we go back he might just order Karaka-men like me 😉 And yes, we also had Kae-dama which is system that offers you an extra serving of noodles. When you have almost finished your first servingof noodles, order by saying, “Kae-dama, please.” In a few minutes the server will bring yo u another ‘ball of noodles’ and put it in the soup. Mind you that you need to have at least a good amount of soup still in your bowl otherwise they won’t let you do that.

For both of our order (with the Kae-dama), the bill came to just under $40 (I believe it’s around $34 excluding tax and gratitude) so yes for me this is part of the reason why I did not place Ippudo on the first place. However for some ‘die-hard’ ramen lovers out there who frequent lots of ramen joints then this price might be okay but if you order more than just the ramen entree (like the appetizer and stuff) then most likely your bill gonna costs more than $40 for two. I mean i loved ramen (I adore ramen to be honest) but I cannot see myself frequently eat at Ippudo every week let alone every day. However, Ippudo can be your next go-to ramen place if you feel like trying something new or just curious about it.

Blacklisted Restaurant : Ho’Brah

I never thought in my whole life I would actually write this in my own blog / website. Let alone adding a category like “blacklisted”.

But I have to.

Remember my post about Ho’Brah sometime last June? If you don’t, well here is the link for it.

This happened last Sunday 7/5/2015 at around 1:30 PM. together with Boo, his parents, a friend and her niece we decided to go back to Ho’Brah for lunch. We dropped Boo’s mom, friend, and her niece first in front of Ho’Brah while Boo, me, and his dad went to look for parking. It was a fine Sunday and we got parking in less than ten minutes. When we arrived at Ho’Brah, we noticed that our party already got seated at the round table in the back. In my mind, wow surely the service is getting better in here. Moreover, they already served the guacamole, salsa, and chips even before we got in.

So we were seated and the menus were already on the table. five seconds later, God knows, this bearded man came to our table and put down a paper receipt saying that during our last visit we haven’t paid our bill. All of us were in complete shock knowing that WE ALREADY PAID the bill and demanded explanation. He kept on insisting that we haven’t paid the bill.

FYI, whenever we go to a restaurant we always have separate bill. And we always, I repeat, ALWAYS, pay the bill.

This man said: “oh I was not here during that time. I just happened to know that you guys haven’t paid the bill.”

Dude, seriously? You just happened to know?! what kind of lame explanation is that?!

And if you have a brain,  if we haven’t paid our bill, then why on earth would you serve us guacamole and gave us the table?! why didn’t you actually talk with us before we were given the table? were you trying to set us up thinking that y’all can fool and trick us like that? I have a strong memory and don’t even mess around with me.

And last but not least, last time we were there on 5/3/2015 after we paid at Ho’Brah, the waitress said ‘Thank you and have a great day’. YES, SHE SAID THAT! If we have not paid the bill, she would have stopped us and yell or scream something like “I’m sorry guys, looks like you have not paid the bill.” NOPE, SHE DID NOT SAID ANYTHING AFTERWARDS!

And FYI, the little girl tooth fell after we left Ho’Brah on 5/3/2015 and she came back inside to grabbed some napkin to stop the bleeding. if we have not paid, your waiter/waitress should have tell her something about payment but nobody said anything about it.

So, do you still want to say we have not paid our bill?!?

Anyway, thank you for making an unpleasant day for the 6 of us. Thanks to you, Ho’Brah, you have made an unpleasant remark for a little girl and of course the other five adults. You have lost our business and customers and we gladly will pass along this story to other foodies / potential customers out there. And yes, like boo have said, the Staten Islanders will be warned too.

Meanwhile, a taco joint that is located in Manhattan (yes in the city, not in Brooklyn) called Tortaria has much better food selection and prices. And yes, I have dined there last year and their service was much better and friendlier than you guys. Looks like we will be going there again sometime soon.

Yours Truly 🙂

Just A Note

Hello readers,

Sorry for the delay of the updates but I have been extremely busy lately (this one is not kidding, I mean I know I updated my Instagram stuff but I do not have enough time to write a post and upload it here). If you like food and enjoy my food posts then I suggest you to follow my Instagram.

If you don’t like food and stuff but still want to know how I am doing, still follow my Instagram because I upload travel stuff as well.

If you don’t like food and traveling and don’t give a crap then… live with it.. lol.. joke..

I will be back sometime later with much better post, I promise 🙂

Yours Truly 🙂

P.S: HELLO JULY! MY MONTH! 😉
