I had 3 cookies for breakfast today and I hope you've had a better one haha.
Postcard view of the Tai Tam Reservoirs.
Overlooking Hong Kong at the peak of Mount Butler. This Gaston Luga backpack came right in time for the Hong Kong trip and I'm glad I could bring it with me on the hike. Always a yes to full black. • Use 'stylomilo15' when ordering your backpack at www.gastonluga.com to enjoy a 15% discount on top of free delivery and a 20% tax rebate (for non-EU countries). (P.S.

One of our biggest rewards while hiking up and down and up the seemingly never-ending Mount Butler. This beautiful butterfly kept flying around my friend @jethrojx and even landed on his palm a few times!! • After 10km, 84 floors, sweat and screams and aching knees, and magnificent views, butterflies all around us, we finally conquered Mount Butler. Now waiting for our ramen that's supposed to be lunch. I want my food now!
Back in Hong Kong for work and I'm lucky to have the weekend to explore Hong Kong this time. Going to conquer the museums today!
Evening sunshine. ✨
A beautiful bouquet by @xbisoufleur for all mothers. This special bouquet named 'Appreciation' is arranged with brighter flowers and ribbons as a shout out to mothers who are always chirpy and cheerful. I think it really suits my mum's character! 💖 • @xbisoufleur is also launching two other limited edition bouquets - 'Love' and 'Gratitude' - for the upcoming Mother's Day. It's priced at $100 (U.P. $150) per bouquet which is honestly a really great price for such a massive bouquet. My sister and I agreed that it felt as if we were carrying a baby in our hands! Haha. • Treat your mum to a wonderful surprise. Well my mum is the kind who says, 'Don't waste your money on flowers!' but would be so excited and smiley when she receives them. Definitely worth it. ✨
Lunch from two weeks back using fresh groceries from @ryansgrocery_sg. The grocer's gluten and preservative-free beef sausage makes a good bolognese. Topped it with organic Monterey Jack cheese from @rumianocheese! 👌🏻
Avocado toast and Sea Salt Yin Yang from Teakha. ✨
Back at home and smiling like a weirdo while I unpack because I'm so happy with my purchases from Hong Kong. Here's some of what I got! 😍 • Got a cup and saucer set from Found MUJI, designed by Månses Design from Sweden and made in Sri Lanka. Lifecycling by IDÉE, a publication that features stories of 16 homes. I believe it started from a blog series which I've followed closely, but I didn't know that they made a book so it was a wonderful surprise. Next, another book titled Wabi Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets and Philosophers by Leonard Koren translated into Chinese. It's a classic if you're into Wabi Sabi. I almost left the 3-storey bookstore (诚品) empty-handed but went back to grab this one because Chinese books just look and feel so amazing! This one has a fabric-textured cover. And lastly, some cookies from the famous Jenny Bakery. I'm usually not a fan of cookies but these are great. Lugged 4 tins of cookies home haha.
鸡蛋仔 from yesterday! 8 more hours in HK and guess where I'm going.. Tune in to stylo Insta video if you want to see more MUJI goodness! Hahaha!
The garden was quiet and you could hear the raindrops and the leaves rustling. 🍃 ✨
Yesterday's random find - a massive bowl of wonton noodle soup with a plate of choy sum. Totally warmed me up. 👌🏻✨
Potatoes with two generous ladles of cheese. 👌🏻 #ArtBox
Look at this crazy salted egg yolk fried chicken bao from @baomakers!! No regrets queuing for it at #ArtBox. The queue wasn't very long actually and they work fast!
I miss this view. ✨
Made pizza for the family yesterday! Ingredients were compliments of @ryansgrocery_sg, a boutique grocer and butcher that stocks a variety of natural, quality ingredients and specializes in foods that cater to unique dietary requirements. • I've to admit, the pizza base didn't look so promising when I first took it out from the oven. But oh my, I ate half of this humongous pizza and loved it. The gluten-free @sillyyakfoods pizza base tasted soft, with the charred parts crispy. Topped the pizza with @latashaskitchen Eggplant Kasaundi Chutney and it was fiery! I loved the flavorful spices and the juicy fresh eggplants. Also added Ryan's Grocery's own gluten and preservative-free beef sausage, fresh tomatoes, white button mushrooms, wild rockets and finally, @rumianocheese organic Monterey Jack cheese. 👌🏻 • You can find all these ingredients at @ryansgrocery_sg and they provide delivery services too!
It's been a while! 😋
