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?
I had a quite pleasant yesterday cause one, could wake up a bit late (what else’s better than stick on the bed on Sunday morning, huh?). Second, managed my morning with quality light breakfast (some shots are coming!). Third, could get a piece
to pay my arrears for one of my very good friends Atre (hope she’ll like the cloth!) and onyx bracelet for myself at Lekki market. Then I ended my Sunday outside with brunch and friends-talk with my Korean friend here, Kim, at Nok.
I finally met with Kim again after we first met at Indonesian Embassy for Independence Day Celebration. Our brunch at Nok was fine, the contemporary African food was good (beautiful plates and cutlery always steal my heart), and oh the afternoon light is my favourite thing there (where else I could find wide clear glass, here?). I managed myself for some shots below tho I felt a bit embarrassed with Kim (first alert if you have brunch with beautiful food served, please bear with me :))
“Oh okay, I won’t argue with you if you say “the title of this post’s so damn cheesy…”
Fact, I didn’t copy one of JB’s songs for this. I admit I love the song cause Ed Sheeran also the songwriter. This time around I won’t praise Ed even most of you perhaps knew how I adore him. Instead, I just want to share some shots of my breakfasts. I’m realizing one thing while I’m writing this sentence that I spent quite much these past two weeks for food. I don’t do exercise (I’m not ashamed saying this truth, I miss waking early on Sunday for jogging sometimes) so eating good food and sleep well is such the only way to stay healthy. For me, some simply ways to love myself are starting my day with a right mood, a cup of coffee, quality breakfast, positive thinking, and some good songs.
You can call me cheesy by reading the caption on the last image below :).
As far as I know, myself will always fall again and again on to croissant. Images here were taken when I wanted to enjoy them straight, but that moment, when you couldn’t let the morning light disappeared without taking some photos.
“Oh May, you are already here…”
How could time fly so fast like this? I mean, it was like yesterday Andreas, my very best friend greeted
envied me from Athens and Berlin. It was like yesterday I had secretly hurricane of emotion that broke my heart. And also, it was like yesterday I came back on Instagram after 2+ months took to one’s heels, posted a picture of Taksim Square right away from Istanbul, Turkey. So, where those first four months of this year gone?
While I’m thinking how should I make the rest of this year meaningful and make progress with some personal goals, let me share some food photographs here (it’s been a while, right?). When I woke up this morning I wanted to just ‘eat’, I almost forgot that “hey, it’s been while you are not playing with morning light” and “that’s make you happy right?”.
I think it is necessary to set a good mood to start a day by doing something that make us happy.
Dear May, May I hope you will bring more joys and happiness rather than make me scarier with this life?
P.S. The first pic was taken with an iPhone, the rest with Sony a6300.
