life lately in may

1. Avocado and Vegemite on toast, my specialty  2. Autumn colours  3. One of the many mochas I’ve consumed this month 4. Eats at Ribs and Burgers  5. Muji haul  6. Lunch at Vinh Phat  7.  Salted caramel and Belgian chocolate from Anita Gelato  8. Salmon sashimi, every time  9. Kakuni tonkotsu from Hakata-Maru Ramen

Just a quick note to say hi, hello, and no I haven’t died! At the risk of sounding cliche, I really can’t believe that May’s over and pretty much half the year’s gone already. It seems like just yesterday when I was looking forward to the start of a fresh month, and ‘It’s gonna be May’ memes were all around. Early 2000s flashbacks, anyone?

Anyway, like always I’ve been eating out too much (way more than what’s pictured here), mainly because my friends are enablers and I’ve never been one to turn down food. Aside from casual eats around the city where I’ve been spending most of my days, it’s also been a month filled with celebrations! My family and I went out to Vinh Phat for yum cha, which I’ve actually reviewed before. The only difference was that this time, we ordered twice as much and finished it in fifteen minutes flat, resulting in some serious food comas…

So I’ve been good at avoiding shopping for material things lately, but clearly couldn’t resist the allure of Muji, which opened in the Galeries a few weeks ago. I intended on having a quick look in there and ended up staying for over an hour, oops. Who can blame me though? It’s pretty much minimalist heaven, not to mention it has everything I could need to survive, and a stamping station! I’ll definitely have to visit on a weekday next time though, to say it was chaos on the Saturday I went would be an understatement.
Not pictured but worth mentioning: anything study-related whatsoever. I hate to write a whole sob story about how stressed I’ve been, but I’m so glad the semester’s coming to an end. Although, I am a bit wistful about saying goodbye to autumn, my favourite season. Even more so since the temperature’s dropped after the official start of winter yesterday. Anyway, with most classes officially done I have an empty calendar for the first time in ages, which is actually kind of worrying! I’m going to need to plan a lot to avoid going insane from cabin fever. Hope you have a good month!
