When Ian and i decided to take full advantage of the gorgeous weather and head to the beach, we didn't expect our day at the beach to become a walking extravaganza. 
Surrounded by beautiful red rock and what seemed like an endless beach, we walked for about two and a half hours. We had barely covered the entire Jurassic coast, but it was marvellous and one of those places that literally make you think wow, what a creation. 

Next time we visit we might just rent one of them colourful cubicles facing the beach, occupied mostly by cute old couples with their beach chairs and magazines. i love the southwest!

So you mean King Arthur isn't real?

We stayed one night in the teeny tiny town of Tintagel, whose castle is associated with King Arthur and the knights of the round table. I was pretty much convinced that King Arthur was in fact a real person, until Ian burst my happy bubble and informed me that that is pretty much false...something i'm trying hard to forget because dragons and knights at round tables are too cool to be simply legend. 

Regardless, the town is So tiny, it took us a mere 20 minutes or so to explore. But we did find a small toy store/museum to spend some time in (:

So this was what i did most of the weekend..


Our little roadtrip to Cornwall was productive to say the least.
Rolling hills, fields of gold and secluded beaches? Pretty much the perfect weekend {even if we woke up at 7am every morning} I took about a gazillion photos {plus 2rolls of film} and i cannot wait to show you more!
 I don't think i'll ever forget how beautiful the SouthWest of England is, and i can't wait to explore more next week with Ian as part of my birthday celebration (: We're going riding!

Happy Monday, friends! How was YOUR weekend?

walk this way


although my poor suede shoes got a real beating from the combination of slushy sand and seawater, nothing felt better than holding the hand of the man i love and walking down a beautiful stretch of beach for what seemed like hours. Best feeling in the world (:

the one with the food- as promised

So no matter how much i've become accustomed to cold sandwiches and pasta here in the uk, nothing beats returning to Singapore and feasting on things i grew up with, plus the other 3082754 types of food available in my home country.
While in Singapore a few weeks ago, the lovely alyssa mentioned to me on twitter that 6 pages into my blog, she established that i really like food. (oh, the shame (;)

What can i say? It's true. I eat, full portions (no lady portions rubbish), i don't believe in dieting (exercise!) and i enjoy my food. It gets under my skin when i hear girls bitching about how little they should be eating and how food is evil. Newsflash, it's not. Food only becomes evil if you let it. And on that note i present to you a montage of iphone photos that aptly represent the amount of joy food brings me.

I've become an expert at hovering over my meals, although i agree that my expressions need some work. I take it all in before digging in, makes it so much better that way (; And even if i'm not hovering, i'm sharing the photo with food.
*All the credit goes to my eating buddy- Shaun, and his iphone for capturing me at my best moments.
enjoy. {and don't judge}
Now to all of you who are on a diet, GO OUT AND GRAB YOURSELVES A BURGER.
that is all (:
