Missed Singaporean food earlier so #gamerchef and I headed to toast box. Meal was ok but for twice the price! At least I had a taste of bandung (rose) and kopi c. #food #singapore #gamerchef and I went Minion overload today. That was a lot of sugar. Lol. Am still woozy over all of it. Banana! #minion #movie Feeling a tad lonely that everyone is busy this Sunday and I have no one to share the small pot of egg and vegetable curry I cooked with. #curry #lunch #food #foodie Missing Kopi C (coffee with evaporated and condensed milk) for breakfast.

Strudel, fresh squeezed orange juice and brewed coffee for a nostalgic Saturday morning. #breakfast #pastry Another view of the mountain at dusk. #mountain #banahaw #travel #lucban
