Potts Point

Foodie post alert that includes rants about food (duh) and a restaurant. If you’re perfectly fine about that, let’s move on.

A few months ago, my sister informed me about a resto that will soon open in Eastwood. She then told me that her friend owns it and that little information made me all curious and excited and also made me want to visit the place.

This afternoon, I managed to fight the gloomy weather (not really) and visit a new cafe in Eastwoon called, Potts Point. Potts Point is a Sydney-inspired organic restaurant and cafe. The name itself sounds fancy to me so I along with my mom and sister sat down to try some of their meals.

We had Roasted Eggplant, Cherry Tomatoes, and Goat Cheese with Creamy Organic Tomato Sauce Linguine. Mmm, sounds delicious. Along with Vietnamese-Style Organic Slow Roast Pork Belly with Nuoc Cham and Pineapple fried rice. I don’t know about you, but long meal names are always a good idea. I specifically loved the pork belly with pineapple rice, worth the try! 

If you’re an artist of some sorts, you would love the place and the ambience. You would see artistic designs everywhere you look so that was a plus for me! The cafe generally looked elegant.

Till next time again, Potts Point!

Writing a Book

Hello there lovely people! Recently, I was greatly inspired by a wonderful story from someone I know that I had to write it. It was quite a surprising move for me to decide I was going to write my own book then and there but the idea of writing one has always intrigued me.

It took me some weeks to finally wrap around the plot for the story and I tell you, it is sooo exciting! With the help of some friends, of course. I am currently in the process of writing it and I guess I’m in the ‘zone’ as others would say and I don’t plan on getting out of that zone.

It’s a love story of some sorts and it’s partly based on a true story which sounds awesome to me. I cannot wait to share it all with you and for the future plans of it (like launching its own website shhh pretend I didn’t spill that little detail)

If you’re a writer, amateur or skilled, feel free to leave some tips & advices cause it will be a big help for me. :)

Hole in the Wall

A few days ago, me and my sisters went out for lunch at the mall and we found something that is worth-sharing. We accidentally stumbled upon an unfinished construction called, Hole in the Wall out of curiosity. Turns out, it was a perfect spot for a photo shoot. It’s a food court that will soon open in Century City Mall. The place looked like an art studio because of its artistic designs that you wouldn’t think it’s a place for food.

The Awesomeness of VSCO

Hello there lovely people. Let’s talk about a certain app called, VSCO. I love this app and I am going to emphasize on how it helps me with my photography and how the app is generally, awesome.

This lack of activity leads me to a bunch of random things to write about as you may have noticed. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I love spontaneity!

Which brings me to the spontaneity of VSCO Cam. This app is like instagram, others say. But I feel like it’s a much more artistic version of it. In it you will find a ‘grid’ which is like your feed on instagram and you can browse for other photographers from around the world.

And then there are the filters, those famous faded, vintage filters that some are probably wondering to know what app it is from, well folks, it’s from VSCO. I discovered VSCO through a friend of mine and the first time I got it, I decided to completely change my feed. Basically, I stopped using instagram filters and used the ones from VSCO instead.

If you’re a photographer, blogger, or even a filmmaker you would definitely love the app. I would describe it as modern and vintage all together.

It has also helped me with my knowledge of photography and enhanced my view of it. I definitely recommend it to aspiring photographers like me out there.

The Song Behind My Url

Hello there. It has been quite a while, and I deeply apologize for the lack of activity in this blog. I feel like I had a ‘writer’s block’ or something like that.. Even though I’m not generally a writer. That didn’t make sense.

Anywho, I’m going to talk about my url. I’ve always loved getting url ideas from songs. There’s something so creative about it even though you’re entirely getting it from a singer’s point of view. That is why this url is from a song called, ‘Breathing In / Breathing Out.’ You’re probably thinking, “What’s the connection?” or you’re probably not. 

The song’s about a girl finding her way in this world and a boy doing the same thing. I think the meaning behind it is how they will find their way to each other. It’s super cute and a feel good song too!

Breathing In / Breathing Out by Jodi King:

Little girl on a backyard swing 

Hair blowing in the wind 

Sooner or later you’ll be 

Off on your own 

A world to discover 

A life to begin 

Step by step and day by day 

You’ll trip and fall but you’ll find a way 

Breaking your heart 

And holding his hand 

Boys can be mean but don’t be afraid 

Sun on your face 

And all that you see 

Is the thing with the 

Butterfly wings 

Sparks fly and my heart runs over 

Breathing in 

Breathing out 

Wide-eyed in a moment of wonder 

Breathing in 

Look what you’ve found 

Breathing in 

Breathing out 

Young man with 

The world on his shoulders 

Where has the summer gone 

Looking out it seems so different 

Paid by the hour 

Used to live by the minute 

Long life and so much to see 

Something was missing 

What would complete it 

Blond hair and the shoulder you need 

Traded it in 

A bike for a ring 

Sun on your face 

And all that you see 

Is the girl with the 

Butterfly wings 

Oh no now that you take away 

At the end of it all you should see 

One more day has a chance to begin

Jogging, Skating, and Breakfast

A Saturday for me is waking up early, making immediate preparations to begin the day, cold showers, and whole a lot of rushing. I made a post back then about my saturday mornings and this post is almost the same as that, but this time, I got myself a penny board and my DSLR.

Skateboards and parking lots are a perfect match.

We went a little old school.

Next, we went to a secret breakfast place as they describe it since it’s hidden. Rustic Mornings is like iHop, only cheaper. Also, the place is very peaceful.

If you’re a nature lover, you would certainly love this place.

That’s my sister on the left.

"The butter melted, sorry ma’am." the waiter said. S’okay for me though.
