Here’s a quickie post before bed!!!… I’ve made real detailed posts about these places before but just wanted to let you know what I’ve been up to :]
After a long long LOOOOONG plane ride over to the homeland, I woke up a few hours later, skipped out on the spa and went straight to my hair dresser…
I wanted Nicole Richie’s bangs!!! Bang bang sha-bang
YEP I got them….
After some solo shopping… I met up with my mom and one of her best friends [from Cali, who was also in town] for tea time at Afternoon Tea.
Mommy’s Beef + Rice Dish
Auntie’s Creamy Chicken + Rice Dish
Both had a side of potato salad, a cherry tomato sliced in half and some lettuce
My Chicken Sandwich Salad
Egg Shavings, a delicious dressing, thinly sliced roast chicken, loads of veggies and greens and chunks of buttered wheat toast!
Teas for Tea Time
Auntie & I
Mommy & Auntie
Mommy & Auntie both got the chestnut cake
I got the banana/kiwi roll with chocolate chips <3
And then more and more shopping in the both sogos… LOADS of shopping.. for day one maybe we spent a little too much money on new clothes ;] But I barely packed SOOOOO ;]
Then Din Tai Fung for dinner!
Watching the boys at work while we waited…
Seaweed, Noodle, Tofu Cold Dish
Sweetened White Bitter Melon
