Oh Britain!

"People must think you love England a lot." Hub commented upon seeing my outfit and I thought it was really funny. Hahaha.

Actually, I do love England. I have been to London 5-6 times and yet I am still very keen to visit London again. The Brits make the best fries! They are crisp on the outside and fluffy inside. I was told in order to achieve that, you'll need to double deep fry them. I haven't tried it myself though.

Afternoon tea at Fortnum and Mason is a must for us whenever we visit London as they have the best scones & clotted cream! Fortunately, I can bake rather good scones. I'll whip up a dozen and freeze them. Whenever our craving strikes (happens quite frequently, hahaha!), I'll just pop them in the oven for 20 minutes and VIOLA! freshly bake scones!! Unbaked scones freeze incredibly well for up to 2-3 months.

I'm more of a tea drinker than a coffee drinker. I love reading chic-lit by British authors as I just can't get enough of their sense of humour. I love the British accent though I don't speak with one (wish I could). I am in awe with Alexa Chung! If only I could have half her effortless style and her mega long legs. Jamie Oliver and Nigella Lawson are my favourite chef/ home cooks as their recipes are always practical, easy to follow and taste delicious. And as you could see from this outfit, I heart Topshop even though it sucks my wallet dry every time I step foot into their stores.

My list can go on and on... and therefore, my answer is a definite YES if anyone ever asked me if I were fond of England.

The highlight of my 2 nights stay in Vienna was definitely having to sink my teeth into the legendary Original Sacher-Torte at Café Sacher! It's so yummilicious! I wish I could have a slice now!

The thing I love to do most when I travel is to try new food! Sightseeing is secondary as I live to eat! Hahaha.

While in Prague, we made a day trip to the quaint & picturesque Český Krumlov. Situated on the banks of the Vltava river, the town was built around a 13th-century castle with Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque elements. It is an outstanding example of a small central European medieval town whose architectural heritage has remained intact thanks to its peaceful evolution over more than five centuries. And the Old Český Krumlov is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992.

Little Tokyo

Little Tokyo
local stores sweatshirt, distressed jeans & beanie / topshop backpack / christian louboutin heels

Nope, I am not in L.A. Little Tokyo, I am just taking a short break from travel blog posts ;) Nonetheless, this sweatshirt brought back fond memories of us (Hub & I) making frequent trips to Little Tokyo as the restaurants served really good & authentic Japanese & Korean food! Hahaha.

As I was putting on the jeans this morning, my mum's disapproval face flashed across in my head. "Why on earth did you buy a pair of broken jeans?!!!" she screamed. Hilarious!

I have been wearing so much high-waisted pants & jeans that it feels really weird to have jeans hanging around my hips now! I kept pulling up my jeans as it felt like it was slipping off my butt. Of course, it was slipping off nowhere, it was all in my head. Hahaha.
