The other day I had this retarded interview/photoshoot with hk’s Next Magazine, which is sort of the equivalent of maybe USWeekly or some other gossip magazine of similar quality. They had arranged an interview to ask me more about my design/product work and had set up a stupid sort-of-not-really photoshoot where I had to do these absolutely ridiculous poses..not exactly poses more just like how the photographer wanted me to stand or sit. TYPICAL local hong kong retardedness and the whole time I kept thinking “omgomgomg this is the lamest thing I’ve ever done in my life.” We’ll see how it turns out.

edit: Sorry i forgot to clarify that it was for like an interview for the magazine..not a job interview :D

After that I met up with Julie and Mark for some Japanese dinner at Watami. The menu style is similar to that of Oh! Taisho in NY but definitely no way near as good in terms of food and taste. Man I miss Taisho so much ):

Grilled Squid

Grilled Mackeral (before)

Grilled Mackeral carcass (after)

Today my mom took us out to Spasso (Ocean Center, 4th floor) for a celebratory lunch. The place was really cute and open and the food was pretty good. We each had the appetizer buffet then ordered 3 main courses to share amongst us.

Chloe Edith

My plate of appetizers. A little salad, roast beef, raw beef rapped in ricotta cheese, mushrooms, grilled bell peppers, falafels, shrimp and some awesome parmesan reggiano cheese.

Mushroom ravioli

Margarita pizza

Our cute little dessert, mini chocolate and pistachio ice cream cones


My baby paddle pool on my roof :D

Me and Julie after our baby pool session. Don’t you love my ridonkulous face haha

Chinese dessert “sao bao” – served at the end of a birthday celebration and am meant to look like a peach which is a symbol of longevity. The steamed buns are filled with lotus seed paste and are super yummy and super fattening haha.

And lastly I’d like to introduce you to my brother, the idiot:

And no people he’s not really retarded, he’s just being the typical male 25 year old.

14 days

p.s. some of my outfits/outfit pics are majorly slacking lately. i need momo to help me ):
