As Simple As This Asparagus


How easy but tasty. You just need a minute stir-frying with olive oil, that’s it…


.

I pretty love to wake up on Sunday morning with a warm sunshine through my window, blue sky but not too bright. It makes me feel more relax than wake up with gloomy rainy morning like today. It was pouring last night and the grey sky is lasted till I’m writing this sentence. I don’t mind to be honest cause I woke up early with my latest morning ritual (read: playing fav songs loud with Harman Kardon mini speaker).

It’s 10.45am here and I’m literally having my second cup of black coffee with chocolate cookies. Still listening some favorite songs wishing my Sunday is moving slowly. I never make my breakfast, thinking something easy like the one I had few days ago, just some asparagus. One minute stir-fried served with omelette, sprinkled with chili flakes and pomegranate.

Brunch With Avo


Just wanted to share some photographs of a brunch I had Sunday last week.


Few slices of avo on top of baguette with mayo and sautéed king prawns. Also, milky avo puree and dice-cutted avo in lettuce plus sweet corn plus cheddar salad. The way I love to enjoy this kind of brunch is taking it slowly on Sunday on the bed. In fact, this was shot on top of my bed using a DIY grey board from a side table.

Hey Sushi

“On my way to my apartment this evening, I scrolled pictures and played some videos in my iPhone from trips to Turkey and Japan”


..

It’s such a thing I always do every time I miss those vacation moments. I smiled few times watching cheesy videos I recorded at Haneda Airport with Luís, a video recorded when I had lunch with my best friends, or the one Saf sent me when we were in Istanbul. It’s a good thing technology helps us rewind those moments in the past even only on the screen. I should record more in the future cause it feels much more alive than a picture :)

When I kept scrolling on the gallery, my fingers stopped at these pictures, and it was raining a bit in my mouth. Look at that ramen! Imagine had a super power taking it from my screen and had it for dinner :(

Brunch At Home


“I actually woke up right. It’s Sunday…”


.

When I have no events on the weekend, I prefer to pretend my Saturday night at home is endless. Sleep late is allowed of course, cause wake up late on Sunday sounds right! When I was watching a movie on the bed last night, I was thinking to sleep late but felt asleep cause one, the movie’s such a boring one and second, I was kinda tired after editing few pictures for an upcoming post (still, an archive from Istanbul last year). I don’t watch TV, I prefer watching either movie scenes on YouTube or some favorite movies over and over again like Argo, Me Before You, Million Dollar Arm or La La Land from my MacBook.

This morning I woke up as if it was Monday: on time, straight working on my clothes (ironing, what else?), cleaning my room, and then brunch scene session with a multi-grain croissant, granola with pome, hello berries it’s been while, quinoa chips, kiwi and grapefruit. My morning is definitely not complete without a cup of coffee.

.



Talking about movie, the one that stole my attention recently is Call Me By Your Name. Not because it’s scored 98% on Rotten Tomatoes, but the movie itself is such a masterpiece imho. Timmy’s acting is amazing, the scenes shot in northern Italy on eighties are to die for: the wardrobes, lighting, locations, angles! I never watch a whole movie but some scenes on YouTube.

Even though I had no idea why Armie Hammer didn’t get a nomination for Best Supporting Actor on upcoming Oscar (this sounds like a snub huh, like how crazy Divide by Ed Sheeran didn’t even get a nomination for Best Album Grammy 2018, holy shit!), but I’d be so glad if this movie wins Oscar or perhaps a lucky star drops for Timothée Chalamet!

Packed And Go…

One thing I’ve been trying to do recently is managing my time to cook three different meals at the same time. I tried once last week when I cooked a bit late (sure, it was exhausting cause I did it after I had a long day) and found that it saved my time a lot. I ate different meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner and lasted for two/three days. Tho it was a bit “managed-managed” (I promise, it was a bit hard to do cause I like spending money for food) but truly, it saved much of my time. I didn’t have to cook every time I get home cause what I needed was to warm manually on the pan (I have no microwave in the moment :|).

Another thing I’m trying to do is saving my time for breakfast without losing the essence of it. Cause you know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And sometimes when I wake up from a looooong day and take my coffee slowly on the bed with few times Call It What You Want from my iPad, a pack of fruitful breakfast is all I need. Take a shower, spray Blue de Chanel and off I go…

I was so stoked I could speak with Judith, my best friend whose birthday is today! She spent a beautiful day with a sunset in Catalunya…she told me before we ended our phone call, “I’d see a friend I met in Japan this Christmas Azis…we’ll see in Morocco” oh, should I pack my backpack and run from here that day…:P

Dinner With A Bowl Of Cheat

.


Although you have seen few healthy food scenes I’ve been documenting for this blog, there is a time I want to have a little cheat for myself.


.

Don’t worry, those healthy food scenes aren’t false. FYI food is one of those things that I could be so picky at but you know, sometimes I could be like anyone else who would say “that’s okay, once in a while”. Pretending it’s not a big deal to cheat ourself once in a while.

.

Dinner with instant noodle isn’t a good idea I know, but trust me, I cooked the broth from the scratch with definitely no msg added. The green aka Chinese cabbage wasn’t an accessory (that’s how mostly Indonesian cook instant noodle with). Also, imagine having this hot noodle when it’s pouring outside with a sweet hot tea in your room. I mean it’s okay right, once in a while?
