High Tea with Mum (:

it was soooooooo good (:  i've never been inside the Tea Room, except it was sooo pretty (: one of my dreams of having high tea at the QVB has come true!!! ((((((:

you can't share, which sucks, so each person has to pay for something, and they put two person's food on one stand. the stand itself didn't look like much, but after we finished, we were soooo full. if you go with three people, they put it all on one stand, except the stand is fatter, so it isn't as pretty...

i had chai tea. it smelt soooo nice. i love their tea because it isn't bitter. i don't like tea bags since they are really bitter. my mum had rose tea and it smelt lovely (they didn't have cherry tea so mum was ): ) yum.....i can still taste the tea and spice in my mouth....

and i had my first professional macaron. it was pistachio flavoured and you get bursts of the nut in tiny bites. yumyumyumyumyum. that was my fifth macaron. the four before were all homemade.

everyone sits there for more than 1.5 hours, so that is a reason why high tea is expensive, because it's slow, and money comes in closer. there were quite a lot of people though. actually, mainly women, and occasionally an old husband. i saw 2 young husbands, and only 1 boy, and 1 uni guy. yeah, everyone else there was female lolololol.

people who don't finish their food-it's such a waste. i would totes grab it off their stand, but obviously it's not right to.....had soo much tea.

the cheese smelt so nice, and everything was good. yeah, it was worth the money, it didn't look like it at first, but when you think about it, a macaron is $2.50, a scone is $3.50, tea is $6.5, yeah it all adds up (: the scone is deceiving. it looks really light, but when you pick it up, it's quite

i wanted a window table, but then we realised the tables there were smaller and couldn't spread stuff out, and were sunnier....

yumyumyum

my camera was sticky after =/

and seriously, i went towers this morning and yesterday and city today, and over 20 stores in total, and formal dresses are sooooooo expensive. i couldn't even find lisa ho today in the city. and myer's dresses aren't even that nice. there are so little discounts compared to last year and stocktake sale....and they weren't even nice.
and i bought my formal dress today, and it was a bit over budget. i'm really picky. i usually buy branded formal dresses, but branded dresses don't look that nice/ are 1000$, and you can't even see the brand....it's quite plain though.....and then i went to another store and found a dress that i would have bought since it was cheaper, even though that dress wasn't on sale....it was peach though, i don't even know if peach matches me...i have to get over the fact the not all branded dresses are nice...

so mixed feelings...maybe i should have just gotten the cheaper dress even though it wasn't on discount...except i have seen 5+ people on fb with that dress, just in different colours.. but if i gain weight during HSC period, then i am really screwed. so i should start losing weight after January....
i wanted a unique dress, except i've been looking for 2 days straight, over 20 stores, so i guess i just bought it since i know i won't have any other time.....
unique dresses are expensive. like bridesmaid dresses are nice and for formals, but it's enough for me to go hk....

but i'm happy

except i haven't done any work for three days...

this year has passed soooooooo fast (i think i am abusing "so") as in, the fastest year of my life, so far...
good year though (i think...)
