569. Recent Life

leftbanked outfit
Hi everyone..so I'm putting a hold on my "renovations" post series for now since there hasn't been much progress recently. I'm still waiting on my kitchen to be made. The cabinets have been taking a long time..I also took a break from furniture shopping because surprisingly, shopping does get exhausting lol. Good problem to have though I guess. I need to try to buy the rest of my stuff this week. But at least I'm pretty much moved back into my place now and life is semi-back to normal. I've been extremely busy these days with work and going out that I literally have no time to blog! (or even keep up with blogs)

My birthday is coming up next week. I don't make a big deal out of my birthday anymore..well I never really did ever. But especially in recent years I don't really celebrate because I don't want to get any older! I do have a few things planned this week though and I think I'll try to plan a few more events..good excuse to go out I guess.

Last night was fun. I went out for a dinner with some friends to Reservoir Lounge. Just as the live music started I had to leave as I had planned to go with my friend and his co-worker to watch Logan. It was amazing!! I really loved it. I'm really into extreme and gory action movies. I definitely recommend it.

Here are some more random photos from the week:

coconut water
My coconut water obsession is still going strong. My friend recently got me into coconut water from Greenhouse Juice. It tastes amazing and so fresh but a lot more expensive than the other stuff. At the rate I drink it, I definitely can't afford to get it all the time lol. In other news, I really love my new full sized fridge. Lots of space for all my smoothie ingredients.

McEwan pasta
My favourite pasta (so far) from McEwan

Almost every time I walk away to go to the washroom or wherever, my dog quickly takes over my spot lol. I thought this was funny because it looked like he was working on my laptop. If only he was able to help me with my millions of emails..

nanoleaf aurora
I'm super excited about this. I first discovered the Nanoleaf Aurora at the Interior Design Show this year. I thought it was really cool..but didn't think about purchasing it. Then I suddenly thought of a really cool way to use it. The design I want to create requires 3 boxes (though now I figured out to do it using just 2) and is going to be a ridiculously difficult task but it will definitely be worth it. When I went to buy this first box, it was the only one left so I got the last one. Today I went back and they restocked! So I bought another one. Now I have to order one last piece before I can start putting it up. I will post the final results when I have it done.

Reservoir Lounge
Last night at Reservoir Lounge. Their thin crust pizza is amazing.

1kw film set
Last week they were filming a show called "Perfect Citizen" in my building. One night I went to walk around the set. It kind of creeped me out being there by myself so late at night lol. I just walked around quickly and snapped a few shots. The base building of where I live is very historic and apparently this floor is haunted at night. I used to wander around here a lot with my friends but I never usually come alone hahah..except for that night. When I first moved in here, this area was some sort of members club. The walls were full of portraits which made it even scarier at night. I remember exploring with my next door neighbour at the time. Good memories.

leftbanked washroom
My bathroom is my makeshift kitchen hahah. I had to make my smoothie in there since I don't have a kitchen yet! & I will post better photos of my bathroom once it's 100% complete and I have everything set up for it. I'm contemplating now to change the mirror because it really doesn't match the colours :(

My morning green smoothie: spinach (sometimes kale), pineapple, apple, banana, chia seeds, maca powder, and coconut water.

1kw edamame
I spent a few hours at my lobby bar again today. Did a lot of work and ate a LOT of edamame. I decided to be adventurous and not get my usual chicken caesar salad from here so I ordered edamame instead..it was pretty good. I ended up getting 2 boxes!! Couldn't finish the second box though. They cook it with oil, sesame seeds and salt.

Library Bar
Then of course we ended up at the Library Bar again at night.



  1. The aurora light looks so cool. Would love to have that in my office perhaps. And who wants to get older... but we all have to...

  2. It must be so cool when show is filming where you live.
    I never tried coconat water but I want to. What if I get obsessed? haha


    1. I got obsessed with coconut water almost immediately after I tried it lol
