Asian Snacks and the MSc.

I hate filling the blog with dissertation news but woes they are not. I'm very nearly done which is awesome and means I can get back to catching up with everyones blogs and er...the big hunt for the first graduate job (which is probably more scary!).

Thank you for all the good luck vibes too and especially to those who answered my dissertation questions that I left on this blog ages ago. You guys helped me way more than you realise!

Anyway, here is a long overdue outfit post. Breaking out the sheer blouse and my favourite Henry Holland tights!

Blouse (H&M) Vest Top (New Look) Skirt (Urban Outfitters) Belt (Pop Boutique) Tights (HoH) Shoes (TopShop)
During dissertation-ing, I'm constantly snacking (hands up who does it too?). Some of my favourite drinks are Yakult and Vitasoy. Back when Yakult was not readily avaliable at supermarkets, I remember my grandad bringing packs of them back with him from trips to Hong Kong. They were such a novelty when I was a kid and they remind of me of being little.

Gotta love Vitasoy too (soya milk drink) definitely a home comfort when I drink these! My parents told me that when they were younger in Hong Kong, they were sold in glass bottles (like Coke) and they would buy hot ones and walk to school drinking them!

My mom constantly comes home with different varieties of Asian snacks that she liked the look of in the Chinese supermarket. My favourite are the spicy Shrimp crackers but these corn flavoured ones are pretty yummy too.
Korean Crisps
Plus they're fun to eat! Rawrrr!
Silly claws.
As if this academic year has passed so quickly, some of it has been pretty stressful and more challenging than I could ever have imagined. Studying for a masters can be pretty tough and it's been a bit of a learning curve. However, I can definitely say that I nearly have a MSc to my name and plenty of amazing friends from my course. I hope we're reunited again one day as most are scattered around the world!

  2. Mmmmmm I want those snacks!!! Yakult is addictive, have your tried an apple or grape flavor before? Original version is the best.

  5. ooh I love yakult! Here in Braizl you can buy them at supermarckets, but before we could only buy them from old ladies with yakult trollies! I'm sure it feels both sad and relieving to end your dissertation :) but I guess you'll always remember the good times, like eating shrimp crackers and wearing them as nails! I think I saw that on Scrubs once.

  7. Yay! I'm almostnearly done too, well I'm about 5000 words over the limit so I need to do some serious cutting but apart from that ...! I snack too much while I study as well. And those corn crackers! We load up on hundreds of packets whenever we go to Thailand, I love them, and I remember putting them on my fingers like that when I was a kid! :D

    Anyw; I love every single food item which you had listed in this post; but I would swap Yakult for Vitagen actually; and those cone shaped snacks are the most fun to play with! As do ring shaped ones!:D

  28. I have the exact same shirt and tights! So many of us bloggers must have identical wardrobe items but I love how differently we all style them, I really should wear mine more. Well done on the disso, you must be so relived, my woes will be starting very soon so I'd better get preparing; I'm sure yours must be an interesting read and I'm sure someone will snap you up and offer you a job!
