It is finally the time of the year!

A few of us decided to relax and explored around covent garden this evening after class. The entire place was filled with fairy lights and decorated with festival ornaments. As we were strolling down the streets, we were accompanied by merry Christmas music. It felt quite magical and exciting! We then rewarded ourselves with yummy woodfire baked pizza and famous ben’s cookies (If you ever come to London, you need to try Ben’s cookies! It is the best!). That was actually exactly what we needed after a long day in class. Thursdays are my longest days in the week; we start at 9sih in the morning and end at 6 in the evening. That’s a full working day! I am definitely looking forward to the holiday after my finals in two weeks.

Healthy Dessert Week 1

by funnylittlestories

My roommates and I decided to explore healthy dessert recipes and try them out once a week! This week, we attempted to make yummy low fat chocolate brownies. We found an online recipe from yummly.com that did not require any butter or oil (which is amazing)! Instead, we use plain yogurt. Each serving is as low as 150 calories! We definitely had no shame eating the slice of brownie tonight.

Serving size: 9

Ingredients:
1 cup of sugar
10 tbsp plain yogurt (or go greek!)
6 tbsp cocoa powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup of plain flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
tiny little bit of salt

Instructions:
Super simple! Preheat the oven at 165 C. Mix all ingredients together evenly, pour it into a 8×8 baking dish and put it in the oven! Wait 30 minutes patiently (we had some troubles doing so), and done, it is ready!

It was so nicely moist and super delish!

Cheers!

Thanksgiving is a very American celebration with a lot of food and this year, we have brought it over to our little house in London! We invited a bunch of friends over for dinner and started preparing the house and food in the early afternoon. As the big bird stood in the oven for hours, we took a little break with wine and ‘love actually’ then back to cooking the sides. The night turned out great with yummy food (I personally made zucchini fritters that turned out really delicious), tons of wine and good fun!

To end the day on a good note, I am thankful for the happiness in my life.

You are precious.

Today, I woke up to a mail man delivering flowers at my door. To my surprise, it was from a very dear friend of mine. He had known I have been ill and feeling eeky the past few days. The flowers definitely brightened up my day and made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Happiness is radiated not from the the flowers but the kind, loving gestures from him. I miss him terribly and cannot wait to see him in London next year! ❤ you!

Tea Crazy

by funnylittlestories

Amanda and I went crazy over tea this weekend! We each bought four boxes of different teas at Whole Foods. ohh.. I got the little box of antioxidant-packed blueberries at the Borough Market for only 50p. So yum!

In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die, where you invest your love, you invest your life.

I had to say goodbye to a primary school friend that is really dear to me. We have bonded over the period of a month being in London. It is funny because we have previously not spoken to each other for 10 years! I find it so amusing how life took us apart and brought us back together in England. No one would have guessed. She will definitely be missed and I will see her soon again in Malaysia. Friends like this are hard to find. When I find one, I’d like to keep them.

Have a safe flight, Amanda! I am so excited for the upcoming events for you! xoxo

I am an addict.

I discovered this yummy finnish licorice this weekend and I can’t stop. I like to think that it is healthier than candy to justify my addiction for it! Haha.. It is so good!
