New tattoo

Hello all!

Had an awesome weekend with a friend in London. Went to get my tattoo done and also a tattoo consultation on another tattoo I want to get.

The tattoo was done by the lovely Emma Bundonis at OMG tattoo studio in Archway, London. She did an awesome job and also the other staff were really friendly and very chatty; which helped!

I was really nervous getting this tattoo done as it was on my chest and I didn’t know how much it was going to hurt. Surprisingly it didn’t hurt that much, it hurt a little bit around one area but apart from that it was enjoyable!

London Film Comic Con

I went to London Film Comic Con on Sunday. It was amazing!

I got an autograph from Ross Mullan ( the White Walker from Game of Thrones) he was lovely. I even got a photo with him :D

Then on the train my friends and I saw Martha from The Great British Bake Off. She had an empty cake box unfortunately.

Look at the goodies I bought from the comic con. I only spent £60!

Christmas in a jar

Today I haven’t had much planned so I decided to get ahead with my homemade Christmas presents for my family.

I haven’t finished yet as I still need to get some more ideas. I will also be making Rocky Road cakes for them but that will be nearer the time.

As you can see below, I’ve got pipe cleaners and I’ve made candy cane and their initials. I think it looks quite cute. Also in the jars I got fake snow.

I’ve had a very productive day and really enjoyed a crafting day and having some me time :)

I hope this inspires you have a crafting day!

Hibernating

Ok so I’ve had this cold for a week now and it is now doing my head in! It’s been difficult at work as I’ve been sneezing and just snotting everywhere (not literally) it’s just not nice!

So I’ve decided I will most probably just hibernating this weekend and keeping myself warm and out of the cold.

I hate winter and I hate the cold :( it just sucks.

To cheer myself up today I went to get a helix piercing on my lunch break (as you do) it’s the very top one :)

Sad September

Sorry for the silence guys. My uncle recently passed away so just wanted to just get away from it all.

This uncle was like a 2nd dad to me and it was very sudden and it’s just devastating. Seeing my aunt and cousins so sad is heartbreaking.

It’s now been a week since my uncle has passed away and it’s still not getting any easier. I’ve had lack of sleep as my brain won’t shut down. I’ve been working from home as I can’t face people right now. Just been a bit down :(

His funeral is next Monday so I’m not sure how I will be. I need to stay strong for my aunt and cousins. I don’t think I have anymore tears left. Last week I’ve been crying on and off for the 3 days.

I’m glad I have friends and family that are very supportive and they know when I need cheering up.

I’ll be getting a tattoo end of October. It’s going to be a customised sentimental piece in honour of all my family members who have passed away. It will help me remember them. I want them to know that I will never ever forget them.

R.I.P Uncle Brian. I will miss you so much.

Sunday food day!

So you know people say Sunday is fun day? Well I think I’m going to rename it to Sunday food day! Today I had epic food! I did have yoga this morning which was good and then I had to pick up my mother to go into town. This is the beginning of my epic food Sunday!

So first off I treated my mother to a McDonalds breakfast. I haven’t had one of these breakfasts in ages. As you can see below I had a bacon and egg McMuffin and it came with a hash brown. I also had a hot chocolate with my breakfast. It was a rather lush breakfast.

Then for lunch a had Cheung Fun. This is eaten in Hong Kong and China sometimes for breakfast but I had it for lunch. I had it with dark soy sauce and hoi sin sauce. Yum!

image

Then after lunch me and my mum made won tons. It was fun. I helped my mum to prepare the ingredients and then we wrapped them all up one by one. These aren’t the fried won tons but these are the ones where you cook them in a broth.

image

Then after the epic won ton making session I thought I would treat my self to an amazing Hong Kong snack. To you it’s just a normal packet of crisps but to me it’s my childhood snack when I go to Hong Kong. They are so good, they are hot and spicy and has just enough crunch to them. This was all washed down with a Fosters Radlers.

Lastly, when I said before the won tons you cook in the broth… well below is what I had for dinner! So in the broth we have egg noodles, won tons, seaweed, bamboo shoots and pak choi.

So yeah, my Sunday has been full of childhood food and just yummy food. I have a rather happy tummy :D
