Seeing as a lot of people liked the room post I did in 2012, I figured it would be good to do another.
SO HERE IS MY ROOM FOR 2014! I’m living in a terraced house this time instead of an apartment, and have tiled floors instead of carpet, which I like a lot better!
OOTD // COORDINATES OF LAST WEEK #2
 Uni day→ Collar & sweater from StyleNanda-ish Divisoria shop, Zara brogues.
 KPP live→ Algonquins dress, Sock theory OTK’s, Tokyo Bopper shoes.
 Rainy day→ Kilara top, Zara shorts, H&M socks, TUK shoes
 Dinner with friends→ Bershka dress, Dr. Martens boots
I’ve been wearing lame stuff lately because of the shitty weather, though.
Comment if you have Codenote! :3
I should really get to studying after this… I have an exam in 10 days boohooooooooo.
14/03/14: Metal KTV Night
Caught up with Mana and her friend Marina (who she also met at that show) for a heavy as fuck KTV night haha.
Ayaka joined us for dinner at Daruma before heading off to a party or something. I don’t really like the food here, haha.
Mana ordered Mizuya drinks corresponding to each of our star signs… Mine was Virgo and full of strawberry yeeeeee
OKAY besides NUFAN (current favorite song had to be included) the playlist was full of Diru, One OK Rock, Arch Enemy etc hahahahahaha.
29/03/14: Dinner & Black Party Rehearsal
Post-Kyary catch up dinner with Mana, Marina, Kristy and Anzu! We all met as one group at the KPP show, holding line spots and all haha. Ate at Miso, which I think is one of the better katsu places in Sydney even though I can’t finish an entire serving from them haha.
After dropping my ice cream on the train (ugh sorry T_T) we went to the practice space at the Factory to watch Edenfall’s rehearsal.
They sound kinda… Alternative progressive metal? I think they played the setlist for their Black Party show on Easter, which includes a Dir en grey cover!
If you’re interested in heading to the show, the details are below:
See you! Time to study hard!
We have a long brunch list to get through so it’s become a weekly ritual to motivate not eating out or buying food at uni during the week, haha.
WEEK 1: MAD SPUDS CAFE
This is a delicious place I would surely recommend! Aptly named for the menu being chock-full of potato dishes, it’s amazing how much you can do with potatoes! Plus, their avocados are so fresh.
Boxty: the traditional Irish potato pancake was a winner, the potato patty tasted like it had some meat bits in it and would do just fine in a burger, haha. It’s nice to eat a little piece of each layer all at once. Perfect carnivorous breakfast.
Mad Spuds Stack is a mashed potato cake topped with haloumi cheese (my faveeee), avocado, pumpkin, caramelised onions and lentil. This veg-friendly option had a lighter taste. Obviously enjoyed this with the cheese and pumpkin, though the Boxty was more memorable.
Melon Bingsu from Kanzi (yes, the clothing shop… with a cafe) is the best thing on a hot day. I should take the time to make one at home, haha.

WEEK 2: KEPOS STREET KITCHEN
Man, this cafe is a loooong walk. Literally at the end of the end of the end of the street(s)! Was it worth the travel? The dishes are certainly unique because of the spices and ingredients, but it doesn’t make it to one of my favorites. Strawberry mocktail was good, though!
Woodfired salmon salad: Picked at Serena’s food haha, the flavors in the dukkah were too strong for the dish to be finished, though the salmon was perfectly fine!
Pumpkin bruschetta: topped with pumpkin seeds, soft boiled egg and ricotta cheese! It was a curious combination, and again lots of funny spices in the pumpkin mash but not so strong. Safer option!
Mango Mascarpone Cake: eheh I love sponge cake! It was a huge, fluffy but light serving! I’d say it was average, not enough mango taste. If anyone cares to identify the fruit(??) on top, that would be helpful haha it was my first time coming across such a thing!

Serious about desserts, we walked the distance to Messina in Darlinghurst after that to try their “we don’t give a fudge” monthly special. Salted caramel, raspberry preserve + soft serve topped with white chocolate dome and hot caramel fudge. VIDEO-WORTHY, to say the least.
Stay tuned for more weekly brunch adventures~
