(Almost) A day in Pictures

Earlier in the week I attempted one of those a picture an hour posts that Rebecca and Pink Bow do so well. I failed (I kept forgetting to take photos every hour and there isn't always the opportunity) but you can still have some photos to look at!

Since my grandma has moved in with us for a little while, she brings back all manner of things to fill our fridge and fruit basket. This tomato-like apple looking thing is a Persimmon fruit. The taste reminds me faintly of Chinese pear...if you've ever had one that is!

I met some friends and sampled a new South American restaurant that had opened called Bodega. The food was really good! I highly recommend those sweet potato fries. Delish!

Of course I had my new love- the Fuji Instax with me. So I posed with some chilli sauce and my friends pulled silly faces.

I also went shopping with my mom. These escalators always baffle me. They were paint free up until a few months ago. How else are you meant to stand on an escalator?

I pondered for a long time whether to get this Zara jacket. It's gorgeous but I decided that it was too expensive and looking back, I've got quite broad shoulders so the very pointy shoulder pads are not so much my cup of tea! Still lovely though.

We had dinner at our favourite Chinese restaurant. I've been visiting this place since as long as I can remember and my dad has made quite a lot of friends here over the years- always plenty of banter when we visit. It's amazing for Dim Sum too.

Like so many, I'm hooked on The Apprentice and after the dinner out, I had to catch up on the old iplayer when we arrived home on my other new love...our shiny 27" iMac. Yay!

It might seem like an entire day in pictures but these were taken over 2 days! Ahh will have to put more effort into it next time!

  4. This is such a lovely idea - it really 'welcomes' us into your world.

    I couldn't dream to achieve as much in two weeks - let alone two days - and completely envy your busy, fun-filled lifestyle! :0)

  5. Oh I love these kinds of posts too, Winnie! We can live vicariously through some of our favorite bloggers ;)
    Cath and I also have very broad shoulders, but I bought a pointy-shouldered blazer at the height of the trend. I still wear and just look extra line-backer-y ;) I love the cut of the Zara jacket on you, but don't you just hate those pricey items?
    Drooling over your iMac! I work on a 24" at work, and always think I need something bigger (I get spoiled, I know).
    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
    xoxo,
    Lar

  7. i love persimmons!

    i get that way about an item i see at the store. i like it sooo much but i'm not sure if i should really purchase it so i take a picture and then at home i stare at it long enough to realize it's a good idea after all that i didn't buy it!

  8. The escalator picture made me laugh!

  9. Looks like a great 2 days! I've always wanted to do this, but my days are never very fun.

    I love that escalator and the coat looks great. You should have bought it.

  13. ooh i like the look of the food - made me hungry :p
    i love the zara jacket on you! & your shoulders don't look broad at all :)

  14. I've never heard of persimmon! It tastes like Chinese pear?! I LOVE all kinds of pears but prefer those that are crunchy... 水晶梨, 豐水梨, 鴨梨, 雪梨... don't know which one(s) are Chinese pears though XD

    I think Zara's should give students discounts! Their items are a bit overpriced.

  15. A picture an hour is such a cool idea and as you found out a real commitment. Love your pics. That Zara blazer was rather fabulous and I am totally addicted to the Apprentice xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ahh; I just had some persimmons today! I love how crunchy it is! <3
    Anyw you looked cute with that bow necklace and that dress! It's gorgeous!
    AS for those escalators; how weird is that right?! It's all over Singapore for the longest time! Lol!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I am actually eating some persimmons right now! I don't think that they taste anything like chinese pears though...

    ReplyDelete
  18. your posts always make me hungry :( and my local shopping centre has the feet thing too, i was like, HUH?! health and safety these days...xx

    ReplyDelete
  19. I never knew the name of the fruit, usful info ;) Its a very asian thing.
    I love them but i hate it when you get the odd one which leaves a "hairy" feel on your tongue. Sounds weird...i dont know if it happens to other people.

  25. Oh I love a good old photo fest :) I still think you did will. Sometimes you don't have time for a couple of pictures, so one every hour would be near impossible for me too. Oh that food looks well yummy and so funny about the underground .... Maybe People have been standing on their hands again :p great post Winnie xx

  30. Mmmm Bodega - I've been thinking about burritos ever since!
    Fab post Winn, I love those one-photo-an-hour things - satisfies my nosey nature! x

    ReplyDelete
  31. Despite the fact it wasn't one whole day, this has been a lovely post to read! Some really nice photographs, and that food looks delicious - I am so hungry right now! x

    ReplyDelete
  32. Funny how I JUST had that fruit over the weekend. It's so good, especially when it's just right - not too soft and not too hard. Looking at all these photos makes me hungry and crave for yam fries with chipotle dip. gahh.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I want a fujifilm! ahhhhhh! do you recommend it? And do you scan those? I don't have a scanner so maybe I shouldn't get it *cries* haha
    but I'm not too fond of broad shoulder jackets either. makes me look like a man haha!

    I'm 5'6" ish...do you go by cm there? Then I'm 170cm and most tights here run from sizes that go only up to 165 cm. -_-

  34. love the chinese food!is the best in the world! kisses from spain! =)

  37. oh i loved to see it!! it's quite difficult to remember to take photos all day isn't it. mine end up being of a lot of food too!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love those escaltors...I think they're kinda funny; although instruction wise it does seem strange. p.s. I'm working on a picture-an-hour post now too! I definitely have a few days scrapped b/c I forgot partway through. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Lovely pictures! I love the escalators, actually, so funny. All the food looks sooooo good!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hahaha. i've thought about trying this photo an hour post, but I wouldn't even do half as well as you've done. Maybe the escalator paint is a public art thing?

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a fun post ! I love your Fuji Instax , so cool :D

    ReplyDelete
  42. hahahah I think the escalator is so cool! honestly..I don't know why but I just do :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. This is a pretty good 'fail' to be fair, I love seeing the randomness that occurs over any space of time. That food looks yum and I will probably come to Brum purely to gorge myself, as I've already bought half of F21 online! Need to see those escalators too, what's that all about???

    ReplyDelete
  44. your photos looks so good, and that escalator really cute

    ReplyDelete
  45. Loving your imac. =) I'm such a geek.

    I do love the jacket too!
