Coffee, Food, and Love

Boy oh boy am I feeling so energized right now. Sorry for the two weeks or so that I was away from blogging. It seems like life has gotten busier and busier these days. Last week was an amazing week. When people say long weekend, they normally refer to 3 day weekends, but man last week for me was definitely one super loooooooooooooooooong weekend. How long? Make that a 5 day weekend! No work from Thursday last week up to Monday of this week.
Most people I know went out of town for the long weekend. Almost everyone went on a little vacay. How did I spend my 5 days off from work? I basically tried to get in touch with the person I was, years before I was so stressed out. I slept in, laughed a little more, ate a little more, sang a little louder, played with my hair and make up and spent loads of time with the people I love. It might not be anything spectacular but these simple things definitely put a smile not just on my face but these simple things really made me heart smile.

Chit chat and smiles over coffee with my brother's future wifey and my fave cousin Mikey.
Future mister tagged along.

the future mister, my brother's future wifey, and my all time favorite cousin Mikey.
Choco chip caramel cake from Starbucks. This is soooooooo good that I just had to order a second slice.

My favorite milk tea drink. Milk tea tastes even better when shared with my loveys, cousin Mikey and cousin Chloe.

Date Night
Getting ready for my date night with my lovey. I ran into a guy I work with, but he works in a different office, he said I looked fat. =(
double dose of chocolate mudslide with a mixture of Bailey's and Kahlua.
mudslide shots and Death by Chocolates flaming martini. Sorry, I failed to snap a photo of the Death by Chocolates martini while it was still on flame. tsk tsk.

Homemade cheesy pizza! Need I say more?
Banana Nutella Crepe with chocolate sundae
Vanilla Macarons

burp burp burp.

That guy is crazy for calling you fat!

It looks like you had a great long weekend, good stuff.

Isn't it amazing how your life changes, how you change when you start to work?! Sometimes you barely recognise yourself.

Looks like a great 5 days off! I just got on instagram too! Yeah for it finally coming to Android ( I think that was probably a condition of facebook buying it!)
