To you,
when you wake up in the morning, 
I hope you think of me,
how I miss you
how I long for your arms
how I wish to spend my mornings
next to you,
talking about absolutely ridiculous things,
sipping my coffee while staring at your face..

These miles have done its justice
for the fact that I can't kiss you right now
kills me
your whispers in my ears,
your scent,
your touch,
'I love you', I murmured in my prayers
wishing to be where you are,
with your favourite breakfast and your cup of cappuccino

and when the night comes,
this city feels lonely,
seems like it is missing your presence,
just like I do,
these roses are pastels, but my flame will always be red
for you.

An immense influence of millennials era has gone way and beyond to the point where shopping through your finger tip has made possible. Through visual presentations and preferences, anyone can make a purchase on their devices for absolutely everything, including flowers. I understand that most of us prefer to visit markets or seeing the object directly before purchasing as well as the chance to 'gram it before buying them, but I couldn't be more impressed for the fact that ordering flowers online is now possible, thanks to Flowers Across Australia. 

Flowers Across Australia provides flower delivery services in Sydney and Melbourne upon your request. There are varieties of selections based on your particular occasions, flower types, bouquet style, price range, and they also provide gift selections to go along with your flowers (mind blowing). I find it pretty impressive and make surprising your significant others easier, well as the person who lives far from home and having my best friends overseas, I love to send my love during their special days with gifts or pampered them. I find this service really helpful and innovative in this millennials era.

Here is how to order :
Step 1 
Head to their website here. 

Step 2
Choose your flowers. You can choose based on occasions/flower types/Style/ or you can create your own bouquet. Then add any gifts on the side (if needed), such as alcohol, balloons, gift card, etc. 
Step 3
Arrange the delivery.
This is why I choose Flowers Across Sydney. They make it possible to arrange the day of delivery as you wish. 
Step 4
Finalize payment 
Step 5
Sit back and relax, and your loved ones will love you more for that surprise.

Thank me later.

at Bistro Rex


When Byron Bay Cookie sent an invitation to an afternoon tea, you say yes. I am very thrilled to be there amongst amazing females in food. I was also there to try out the dessert collaboration between Christina Manfield and Bistro Rex's Jo Ward and Michelle Powell. The dessert is called Pear and Ginger Spice Crumble and is here to celebrate the launch of Christina X Byron bay Cookies' newest cookie flavour 'Ginger Spice Cream Cookie' which was by the way, really good. We were lucky enough to taste the new cookie before it is available for public from September 1st in David Jones (or online)

The dessert, Pear and Ginger Spice Crumble, was a whole new experience. I should've clearly wrote down the components of the whole dessert when Christina was explaining it but instead I was busy digging in because...... come on, it is a special dessert :) The only thing I can remember was how good it tasted, the texture of the dessert as whole. So there were cookie crumbles, lemon cream, pear and with apple/pear and raisins based. The dessert was served with a glass of 2015 Eric Bordelet Poire Authentique pear cider at the event. Each component compliments the other and until today as I am writing this to you, I still remember the taste of it, I am already planning to make a special visit to Bistro Rex.... just for the dessert!
