swans and hummingbirds

I almost forgot about these photos that were shot at my last full day in London. can't believe these moments were already a month ago ! The weather was super nice on that day, not too cold and not much sun. and with a bunch of friends accompanying you for a whole day, I don't think there's a better way to spend the evening. Some of you might be thinking "what? not much sun equals to good weather?". I remember that one London cab driver told me that the sun makes everyone in a good mood. But for a girl who lives in the tropics, a cloudy day puts me in a better mood than a sunny one does.

wished that parks in London exist in jakarta.. lush green sceneries are always good to stare at while you wander random thoughts in your head. the swans and ducks would be a nice addition too..

i tried the pink champagne truffles from this chocolatier, and it was simply... orgasmic.

I feel like stabbing myself for not taking the initiative to fill up my travel journal every night and now I'm having problems recalling the things I did and the restaurants I stopped by. ate at this delicious fusion Thai restaurant near Selfridges (if I'm not wrong..) for lunch and had chinese food around Bayswater for dinner. London does serves some of the best Chinese food out there...

i love how walking burns all the calories I digested from macaroons and hummingbird cupcakes. but still, by the time I left London, i had trouble buttoning my jeans..

was wearing a h&m mint sweater, topshop leather shorts (love these to death), chanel bag, and belle sigerson morrison suede boots

ps. for those who asked, my shoes in the previous post were from Miu Miu

When I'm in Hong Kong the weather there is crazy hot, so having a cloudy not to warm/cold temperture is really pampering ^__^

Sometimes an overcast day is nice welcome over sunny ones. Your open knit is super cute, and all the Chinese foods with the desserts look so delectable!
