For some weird reason I was craving for some Magnum Ice cream ( Peanut butter flavour coated with chocolate) that I had during the Fashion week. We decided to go to Magnum Pleasure Store in Bloor. We were going around for over 30minutes around Bloor in a very very cold night ( I know right! why want ice cream when it’s freezing) only to realize that its been knocked down beside H&M. I was really hoping for Magnum for Pre-Dinner food. So, I lost my appetite to have dinner downtown.
It really felt like Santa Claus is not real. ( because there’s no more magnum pleasure store. )
Anyway change of plans, We went to Indigo instead as I wanted to window shop for my 2016 diary. Let’s go!
Tho, becuase of this sudden incident I have learned 2 lessons:
First, when you don’t have gloves buy a big large cup of English Breakfast Tea/ Early grey with 2 sugars and 2 cream and make sure it’s hot. It will keep your hands really warm and your body while drinking it.
Second, There’s magnum ice creams in grocery store ( I realized this after)
What I’m wearing:
Shirt: Brown Stripe sweater ZARA but it’s actually stolen from my boo’s ( not mine and it’s for men ), Pants: Banana Republic
Shoes: Aldo, Jacket: Danier and Bag : Carla Sta Cruz
Ok Moving to Indigo, I went to try this popcorn flavour they were selling, I also found out that if you buy any food in Chapters/Indigo you don’t pay tax. So pay them as is.
An Idea came to my head, why not just have make home cooked meal for the Chap and set-up a romantic ambiance at home and watch “netflix and chill” ( I know people think green when this is said, but trust me, it’s really just netflix and chill to people in relationship.
( so if you’re single and some guy asked you if you wanna ‘NETFLIX and CHILL’ make sure you it’s clear to him what it means, because apparently its a new term to hook up. SO BEWARE! )
Their so cute!!! makes me don’t wanna eat them! Speaking of Halloween does anyone of you have already costume in mind? I just GOT mine and I’m excited to do the whole make-up thing which I dont know how yet and have to google/youtube it. But I got all the things needed already I think.
Food always distract me
My mission was to window shop-hunt for 2016 Diary.
Back to the Mission, I always like Kate Spade Stuff, they’re so pretty and girly like me.
This reminds me of Practical Magic Movie I saw at netflix where they eat chocolate cake for breakfast as kids.
Maybe I’ll get this tumbler together with the matching Diary.
Ok honestly, I won’t be buying them in Indigo. I’ll be buying them in the OUTLET when definitely I can get discount and it’s much more cheaper.
I personally like few quotes on the front page of this Journals so I thought I’ll share them with you and maybe just maybe it can enlighten you the way it did to me.
As I make way to the cashier I couldn’t help but look at this Godiva Chocolates, perfect for gift giving this christmas. My favourite would be the fresh strawberries with chocolate dips, which they have on their store and not at the bookshop. No worries, we can go there! 🙂
Don’t forget to go to Loblaws to grab your tuna and LCBO for your bottomless chardonnay for your romantic stay at home dinner date! and maybe buy some chocolates too.
After few minutes we reached home, and Prepared the meal for tonight. Since I was in a hurry as it was already 7pm I chose to make Tuna Steak.
I got this tuna steak for $15 for 2 pieces, I was speechless, seriously $15 for 2 piece of frozen tuna? back when I was dieting hardcore in Asia, $15 worth of tuna was already my 1 week supply and I eat 4 tuna steaks in a day. So if you’re really serious in losing weight Tuna and Tilapia would be your best protein/meat intake together with lots of greens and sweet potatoes.
What you need:
2 tuna steaks ( defrost it by soaking it on warm water for 15 minutes, make sure it’s still sealed on their vacuumed plastic bags. )
Make rice good for two people or mashed potatoes that you don’t even need gravy on it just a handful squeeze of lemon, which taste so heavenly if you like sour taste like me.( I love mash with this, but white rice is also good.) ( do this while defrosting the tuna)
French beans or Green beans two handfuls ( steam this and when its crispy and looking sharp green set it aside and put grass fed butter or any butter you could find and a little bit of salt )
when its ready and a little bit soft, HEAT your pan and pour EVOO make sure you sprinkle salt ‘n’ pepper on both side of TUNA steak
Make sure you put the lid cover on it when cooking so it won’t make ur condo stink plus it will cook it faster when lid is closed.
after few minutes on medium heat, you can now turn it other side and you will see the crispy golden brown. Do this on the other side and make sure flip it on its left and right side so attain the crispy golden brown all around the tuna.
now while waiting for tuna and our steam beans are ready put the butter ‘n’ salt while its still hot and mix it.
when everything’s ready make sure to put the candle light on and dim the lights or turn it off.
Set the table and enjoy!
now put type this on your spotify for a lovely dinner ambiance:
-Romatic Dinner Music ( for some adele’s songs and john legend )
-Jazz Dinner Music ( if you’re in the mood for some jazz)
-Jazzy Dinner ( you can find this in browse menu of dinner)
-Bossa Nova Dinner
-The Perfect Candlelit Evening
and make sure you refill your glasses everytime its empty to get the ‘buzz and blush factor ‘ thats gonna make you fall inlove like the first time with your partner.
And cheers for having each other and be thankful to one another.
and this one is for you! CHEERS TO ALL THE WOMEN WHO COOK AT HOME AND WHO TRIES TO BE A GOOD COOK!
and after the romantic dinner, make sure to set up NETFLIX already and your popcorn. I tried some of the popcorn flavour I got earlier. They were ok but honestly they are no KERNELS haha. but hey it’s gluten free.
and Enjoy it!
