AppeTHAIzing



I'm so happy that Monica and I are still super close, even though we're not working together anymore. 😢We have been seeing each other almost every other week this summer and we're constantly sending each other memes and restaurants on Instagram! 😄



We visited Khao San Road for the first time last month and became obsessed with their Thai iced tea! I even went back with Daniel a week or two later, because I wanted him to try it too! Besides the delicious food, the decor and staff also left a great impression. This place is truly a gem.


A few weeks later, we checked out the Clay Room and designed our own ceramics! I have been wanting to go to a pottery class for some time now, but all of the classes I came across on Groupon were always fully booked. This workshop was less messier and cheaper than an actual pottery class, which was great! 😉 I did a watermelon design for my rice bowl, and Monica decorated her jewellery dish with cute little strawberries. 



Two weeks later, we had brunch at Maha's first, before picking up our ceramics. I already knew Monica's piece would turn out great because of her strong attention to detail. The instructor even featured it on their Instagram! Me on the other hand.. I coated mine with so many layers of paint that I'm surprised it turned out decent! 😄

Creepy Dolls



Hey, hey, hey guys!!! I'm still here! I haven't blogged lately because I'm just so overwhelmed with how backed up I am. I realized that if I don't start somewhere, I will be even further behind. (Whoa. I just realized that line can be applicable to other things in life! 😄) With that being said, let's rewind back to one month ago!



Last month, my friends and I rented out a huge Airbnb!! This property had a pool, hot tub, sauna, indoor squash court, BBQ grill and eight bedrooms!



A couple of guys got there earlier than the rest of us, so we let them assign the bedrooms. When Daniel and I saw ours, the first thing we noticed was this creepy doll sitting in the corner. We were told that every single room had one in it...



I got the heebie jeebies, so I shoved ours in the drawer! 😄 Some of us took advantage of the pool right away, while others played beer pong and prepared dinner. Now that I think of it, we partied pretty hard on Friday night. 😄



The next day, we tanned by the pool, drank fancy sangrias, had water gun battles, took a bajillion photos, played squash, and ate lots of pizza and chicken wings. It was the perfect lazy Saturday.



I ended up leaving my giant camera at home that weekend, so all of these memories were captured with my iPhone and disposable camera! I'm actually really happy with how my film turned out. I'm debating if I should buy an actual film camera now. 😄



Our Saturday night was definitely more chill, in comparison to Friday. Most of us knocked out early!



So creepy story, remember how I mentioned that there were creepy dolls scattered all over the house? I noticed one sitting in the corner of the washroom on Friday night, so I shoved it in the cabinet under the sink. The next day, I told my friend about this doll in the washroom and tried showing it to her. When I opened the cabinet door, the doll wasn't there anymore!!! BRUHHhhh.. why!!!



This weekend honestly went by so fast though. Before we knew it, we all had to get packing and cleaning on Sunday morning. We apparently cleaned up so well, that the host is offering us one free night stay in the winter!



However, with this doll situation, I will have to weigh the pros here... 😬 Special thanks to my friend, Tyler, for planning this trip for almost thirty of us!!!
