Lying under a tree and soaking up the sun is such a simple pleasure.

Summer has finally made an appearance! So glad I was able to get some sun and colour to my skin. Oh, and I could finally wear some of my summer dresses. May this beautiful weather last!

What a lovely place Modern Pantry is! It was of course helped along by the marvellous weather and lovely waiters. This is what fusion food should taste like. I am totally in love with the salad.

Watching My Neighbours The Yamadas (such a cute little movie) at the Barbican in the afternoon made me crave Japanese food, so I got a brown rice chirashi don from Japan Centre and ate it at home.
