mini mini (my realtor) made a pointless visit to my house today. i will find out tmr if they are willing to change the light fixture for me or if i have to fork out my own money to move on to “renaissance age” damn it


breakfast: arranging a salad is sooo therapeutic. how come i never knew that before?? well at least i do now 🙂

lunch: baked potato chowder set @ chowders, tokyo midtown. tasted just like any other cream based soup (yummy, salty, and comforting) but it was really a catch because the soup + a baguette + cafe latte altogether only cost 630 yen!!

 brought my cafe latte out to the terrace area for a nice 3 hours with jason bourne (or delta because delta is for charlie. charlie is for cain!! lol) i am a firm believer and a huge fan of open public spaces with movable cafe tables and chairs

dinner: kakesoba with spinach and purple cabbage. accidental romantic lighting because the hanging switch of my room’s one and only light got stuck when i pulled it too hard. gotta transform to mechanic sheng in a bit.

oh and i bought a croatian guide book from tsutaya today!! its sooo cute ill remember to take a picture of it tmr


breakfast: salad and flourless “banana pancakes” what i used: 4 small bananas, 1 egg, 1 scoop of protein powder. shouldve used one more egg as a binder so i could at least flip it properly. essentially its just slightly- fried mashed banana with a fluffy texture. comforting, but ill probably make it again only when i have an excess of bananas because i still prefer regular pancakes.

lunch: 3 cubes of cream cheese

dinner: soba mixed with basil sauce (i know, you cant tell from the picture) with spinach and egg and corn. very random but rather yummy, nevertheless.

dessert: grapefruit and 1/2 avocado

watched the avengers today and i found out that at exactly the same time vans was watching it over in moscow too 😀 SOULMATES. im not a fan of superhero movies but i aughing to myself and reacting out loud to the numerous funny, cheesy or 格好いい moments. i cant seem to find an english word equivalent to 格好いい but it basically means cool but somewhat stronger than cool like bergaya you know what i mean?


breakfast: banana oatmeal made using TWO bananas!! then i had one more for supper and i still have 5 more (which have turned rather black) left lol! what, 12 bananas for 50 yen naturally i had to get them

lunch after church: pretzel and hot cocoa @ linde german bakery. crispy on the outside and soft on the inside daymn this was good. i even enjoyed dipping it into the cocoa

dinner: ちょっと贅沢なカレーチキン(grilled chicken with curry sauce) from the supermarket and rice and salad

this is a weird weird picture lol it almost looks like a CG image. doesn it look like i pasted the yukata girl onto the picture and dragged it to form a row of identical yukata girls? haha. btw i was on my way back home from koenji station and stumbled right into a summer festival called the awaodori festival and the crowds massive they temporarily sealed so many of the main roads. after watching the dance for about 15 mins i tried to head home because i was getting hungry ( and matsuri food isnt meant to be eaten alone) but most of the roads were closed so i got lost and made a HUGE 45 minute detour using the direction of the setting sun to navigate myself. oh the woes of an iphoneless person. to make matters worse i was in HEELS the whole time. ok i deserve a pat on the back

polka dots


lunch: 純豆腐 aka clam (or “siham”) sundub @ ikebukuro

dinner: 2 apples and a banana
