Salad for dinner

I was invited for dinner over at Fristi's new place and Liam made us dinner! He served us this gorgeous light salad that I couldn't get enough of - the combination was simply filling yet so, so light.

☑︎ Hangout with Fristi and Liam

This post (list above) will be updated at the end of the day!

Weekly catch-up: I've had a pretty great week so far. Yes, I'll admit it's been hella tiring but I think adult life is supposed to be this hard...? 🤷🏻‍♀️. Anyways, I've recently starting working for The Fashion Network over at the Old Granada Studios and I'm having so much fun learning new things + working in a brand new environment. I'm conscious that I still have a lot of work to be done for my Masters project though, so I'm trying to rest my brain as much as I can (by mindlessly scrolling through my Instagram feed 🙄). Currently for this week, I've been listening to Frank Ocean's Swim Good on repeat - I am so in love with his music! Okay, this post will have to be cut short because I just pushed myself to stay on track with my POP pilates schedule AND I got back from a long day at work... so I'm pretty beat. 

Good night for me, good morning for you guys and thank you for reading this.

Jerk Shack, NQ

↠ Curry mutton with rice, peas and a side of coleslaw

Me and Fristi got the same thing and honestly... this was the bomb.com!! The mutton was super tender and full of juicy goodness. And the coleslaw was absolutely out of this world - I did not know coleslaw could taste that good! The rice was a little too dry for me but that's just me being Asian 🤷🏻‍♀️. 10/10 would eat again... especially on a rainy day cause it reminds me of home (Malaysian food).

Overall rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (Great value, superb food!)

Porter + Cole, NQ





Located on the ground floor of One Smithfield Square, Porter + Cole is Northern Quarter's newest coffee lounge/design store. They have one of the best interior decoration I have seen so far in NQ - I am completely obsessed! During the day, this coffee lounge serves coffee (duh!) and food (cakes, healthy pots, lunch). At night, they offer a range of wines, spirits, Prosecco and beer!

In terms of the store, there's a great curation of designer jewellery, artwork, mugs, glasses, socks, beauty products, scarves and even chocolates. One of the best things about the store however (besides the obvious Instagram worthy shots)..... is Porter and Cole! They are the cutest doggies 😍 - I petted Cole for a solid five minutes (pictured below). I haven't had a chance to meet Porter yet but I'll be sure to take a picture of him when I do.

Overall rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️(+⭐️ because of Cole!)
