On the 21st of June, my friend and I made our way to Bugis after school 🙃
She had a baked salmon rice bowl while I had a raw salmon rice bowl for lunch at TwentyGrammes, and we shared a matcha green tea 🍵 ice cream waffle!!!
We then made our way to Haji Lane where we bought a lot of stationery from a Taiwanese quaint shop!
These postcards cost $2 each, and all the designs were very pretty. There were two series, The Food Truck series and The Glass Terrarium series. My friend loved The Food Trucks and she bought about 5 postcards 😂
The Alice in Wonderland stamp set was $12 😻😻😻 I had to buy it and the pretty violin/cello pin was $10.90 and I bought it for my sister who plays the violin! Lastly, the rose gold paper clip was $1.50 and too pretty to pass it up!
It was a fun way to treat ourselves considering our exams coming up in two weeks.
What ways do you pamper yourself?
This letter is on its way to my dear penpal, Sirke Dunzendorfer!! I’ve never really had a penpal from another country and I’m really quite thrilled! Hope you like it, Sirke! ☺️
I recently painted a used tea bag (shown in picture above) and honestly drying the tea and removing the leaves was initially a bit confusing for me HAHAHA! It was quite a funny experience, but it’s a little hard to paint on used tea bags because they’re small, crumbly and easily torn compared to normal paper or watercolour paper!
I also went on Pinterest to source for some paper goods and included some food stickers in the goodie bag too!

Here’s some beautiful blueberry pancakes!!
This letter is currently on its way to Naomi Bulger!
Naomi wants to celebrate food, nostalgia, hand-written communications and community all in one go. Then we can stir, sizzle, mix and bake each other’s recipes, and weave them into our own stories! Your letter needs to be postmarked by 1 July, 2017, to be included in this project, where she will send a free copy of the book or zine to every contributor.
Let’s write this recipe book together!
