I was rotting at home all a day with a lot of pillow cuddles and some sad tears dripping until I couldn't take it anymore. I had to move my ass somewhere. But chill, those sad tears simply came from Fated to Love you, with some Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara action - which I originally thought would be bad, since that messed long up hair was so terrible. And because the original taiwan version was superb, I didn't want to ruin that memory.

So I dragged out my partner in crime for some pastries. Technically, I've been craving for some good restaurant food where by I don't have to clean up the mess in kitchen. Only recently, I found out that Angelina don't serve dinner. If you pop by at 7.30pm, hoping to catch a glimpse of these delicious creams, you're out of luck! Because they close at 7.30pm. At first, I couldn't understand why - anyhow Angelina is still a restaurant! Which stupid restaurant would actually close at dinner time, where it's probably the time where you have the most hungry ghosts? Then a thought came to me, dinner usually serves heavier stuffs, like steak or something, Angelina doesn't have those. So maybe that's why? But who cares, if anyone's heading to Angelina, its for those yummy sugary puffs! :)

If you followed my instagram recently, you'd understand how Mr Rain has been stalking me where lately. Even though, I'm refusing to believe it, rain clouds are haunting me no matter where I go! From my holidays back in my countryside and then back to Paris, it's gloomy clouds everywhere. And I guess, you can't even call it Summer in Paris now. Its only 12° in morning when it should be around 20!

Sushi Cravings
10apr000.jpg

These incredible saliva drooling sushis is something that you can't find in Paris / or perhaps something I have yet to find. The ultimate crispy toppings to mayonnaise salmon- Thinking of them now makes me drool like crazy even if I'm feeling soo full after my dinner. Look at those matcha ice cream! (yes) I would give anything to have them now! Somehow, everyone around me has been craving for sushis lately, from instagram logs to LINE conversation. I ended up having Japanese food three times this week. Talk about saving money...

Sushi Tei in Singapore is one of my favorite Japanese restaurants. If only I could constantly eat them everyday during my trip back to Singapore. It may actually fulfill my missing dosage of quality sushis during my time in France. But I did find something similar - Miss Ko: a french/japanese fusion restaurant that serves delicious mango salmon sushis. The chic restaurant is a little overpriced, but I guess you pay for the location and ambiance. Gotta take a look at their animative table tops- something kinda intriguing each time the dragon swims across your food I suppose :)

Kong Paris
19nov000.jpg

Living in the capital of the country is quite busy. I have yet to find time for my perfect cocooning and lounging. Especially when I took a huge leap of challenge on Sunday to attend pole dancing class with my new house mate, Katie. (Who moved into the apartment one week later than me). I kid you not, i am aching everywhere since then. Long story short, I can't even do the basic spinning right. The one and half hour was expensive, I personally think that there's 2 or 3 students extra for the class because there weren't enough pole to spin on. But lessons were fun. I tagged along out of curiosity. I wouldn't call it pole dancing - It's more like pole acrobatics, or pole spinning. ;)

Anyway, Paris. So many restaurants and bars around. And since my best buddy (Clementine) has left Paris permanently, I don't have anyone to go cafe hopping with. Thankfully, before she left, she brought me to Kong. It's a japanese/french fusion cuisine restaurant bar. I've been there twice so far now. And consolidate both visits with all the food that I've tried. It's a chic place, probably for hipsters, located near Pont Neuf. Right opposite a huge Louis Vuitton building. It's on the fifth floor. And if you go for food, you'll actually have to climb up another level for the full rooftop dining experience. The glass roof is really amazing. I still can't stop having the "... if ever this whole room is turned into my bedroom.." kind of thoughts going through my head. I've only been there for dinner, so I got to see the sky getting darker. Since a lot of people who went there sound like tourists, I took the chance of snapping photos, the blogger instincts. :)

The ambiance is pretty good. The dining roof is actually quite small. So customers are actually clustered together. Plus you share table with other customers, which I found it quite unpleasant. The food was good, but I didn't think that the price was correct, it felt more like, you're paying for the ambiance instead. Kong Plate was actually filling even if it was shared along me and my parents. My apologies for all the dark food photos, but as you can see, we were almost eating in the dark! The truffle udons were good. Since it was the first time I tried black truffles, they have a papery texture and smells pretty much divine. But I can't deny that I wasn't disappointed. 35€ for the little small bowl, I was expecting more, not just plainly black truffles with udon in cream sauce. Clementine also complained that the amount of lobster she had definitely didn't weight up to 500 grams as mentioned. I think there's also a mix of chinese cuisine, because the Margret de carnard was in a delicious sweet chinese sauce that I couldn't name. As for desserts, they served pastries from Pierre Hermé. I did the wrong move to order the 2000 feuilles after my udon, because they were huge, like really huge ( that's why it's called 2000 feuilles ). Seriously had problem finishing it, even if it was great. (drughappy)

Another major thing that disturbed me the most was the noise level and maybe their waitresses. (wtf) It's the noisiest restaurant I've ever been to in France in my whole life. The ambiance music was loud. Most people who come for food aren't french. Loud english conversations going on almost in every direction. All the waitresses were dressed in super short skirts/dress, sky-high heels. I see them adjusting their skirt for every step they made (I'm not exaggerating), I'm pretty much amazed that they can hold out the whole day walking on floatish carpet on those heels. I don't get why all of them have a tiny satchel swinging over their shoulders either, which I find them super annoying. I don't think I'd go there for food again, I find it a little over the top for the price range. I'd like to go back for a drink though :)
