Wired Cafe


Location: Shop 1403-04, 14/F, Hysan Place, Causeway Bay

We were torn between Amaroni's and this since they are right next to each other. Next time I know to choose Amaroni's.

According to OpenRice, this is a Japanese restaurant. Which confuses me even more, since from start to end of my meal there, nothing about it struck me as Japanese.


Dessert came first, no complaints. Dessert is an all-day thing.
This was very good. I thoroughly enjoyed this.
The 'pancake', to me, tasted a bit like a souffle (not the puffy bit). This is the Apple Caramel Dutch Oven Pancake. I think.
The mountain you see in the middle is a mountain of cream. A little bit disappointing, but the rest of the dish made up for that.
It's soft with a nice crunch of biscuit and almonds, not much apple taste, but yummy nonetheless.
(possibly biased because we were quite hungry- or i was)


Chicken and chips.
Sounds quite simple, nothing you can mess up right?
WRONG.

Chicken was good. But it was 3/4 fat, 1/4 meat.
I ate it anyways.

The problem I had with this were the CHIPS. 
Cold, a little bit hard, dry.
My school canteen can do better than that.


Unless you like the combination of mushrooms and tomatoes, don't get this.
It's weird, I don't know how else to put it.
My tastebuds were confused.

This was nothing like it's predecessor, the dessert dutch oven pancake (above).
I personally think that it is simply the combination of these two that made it especially weird and dissatisfying. There are so many other combinations of food out there, even more generic ones. 
Ham and cheese? Beef and ______? (i ran out of ideas)


General Score: 4/10
This was my first time and we did only try three dishes, so maybe there are others that are better. Perhaps one day I'll give this restaurant another go.
This restaurant only got a general rating of 4 because the dessert pancake pulled it up a little.


*sincerely apologise for lack of posts and videos! there will be a lot more coming, i'm going to bali for a school trip tomorrow! (today because it's 1am)

First Winds

I felt the first sign of autumn today,
When the wind blew the hair out of my face,
And the wind on my bare skin,
Was cool.

It was soft,
It was refreshing,
It was the first sign of autumn.

Waiting For Autumn

I apologise for the lack of posts (specifically outfits) lately, school has been so hectic. I also cannot really promise any outfits soon, but I do post regularly on my Instagram!

I should probably mention that these outfits are based on Hong Kong autumn. Which is almost non-existent since it basically goes from summer to winter here.
These outfit combinations were created out of my yearning for autumn with sweat, and the inability to work on school work.

(click photos for outfit details)

1.
No A/W lookbook is complete without a dark lip. Let's be real.
My obsession with turtlenecks has also grown exponentially since autumn started everywhere else in the world (that have autumn) and Hong Kong is still warm. Very warm.


2.
Since last winter I've been looking for The Perfect Trenchcoat. The one in the photo is what I would describe as The Perfect Trenchcoat. I have two trenchcoat-like coats in my closet at the moment, although neither are as perfect as this. 
One day.
Also, joggers. Highly approved of by me because they are the stylish sweatpants. They could technically be considered sweatpants, but my version of sweatpants are a lot baggier than that.
Creepers are quite subjective, I've come to realise. I've also grown to like them. Which is why I recently ordered a pair off Taobao, which you will probably see soon.

3.
Do yourself a favour and buy a sweater dress for A/W.
I saw one in Zara the other day and I knew. 
It's so easy to wear, so incredibly comfortable, and you can bundle yourself in it.
I have yet to get a sweater dress myself, but know that it too, is coming.

4.
I am aware that this is also a turtleneck.
Like I said, the obsession is real.
You have no reason to not feel fierce when wearing this.
Stompy heels and a varsity jacket, you are queen, my friend.


If you decide to wear any of these outfits or have taken inspiration from them, please send me photos!
Twitter and Facebook are preferred.
You can also check out more outfits I put together here!
