Jibber-iing | End of 2015

As we come to the end of 2015, theres many things that I tend to reflect on, but its all internally, I don't always act on my reflections, or let other people know what I am feeling and reflecting on. I had a breakdown probably 2 months ago, where I was unable to touch the blog, post anything on Facebook and Instagram. It lasted for a good month, where I felt compelled to just turn everything off, or rather just ignore those apps.

I felt that I started to have very destructive thoughts, where my imagination would run wild and I would become quite a horrid version of myself.

I didn't like that.

I wasn't sure what brought it on, but after a while, I realised it was the culmination of seeing other people's "perfect" life on Instagram and Facebook. I just want to clarify something, I know that what we see on Facebook and Instagram is the parts that people choose to show, and I know that, but my heart doesn't always see eye to eye with my brain, which then creates unnecessary thoughts.

I know its not New Years yet, but this is something that I really want to promise myself, to become a better version of what I am right now, because I absolutely dislike how I am right now, I want to be a better person. I believe that I don't judge people as easily as I use to, which happened to be one of my new years resolution, so kudos to that, but I just want to be a better person overall, not just for me, but for my friends and family.

Be kind to one another

The Re: white shirt was one of my favourite purchases for basic shirts. It is made out of recycled material and is exceptionally comfortable and fitting. The cardigan and jeans are from Dotti, my favourite haunt, and the shoes are from Volley. comfortable outfit for the recent dreary weather.

Food-iing | Izakaya Sakura

Having lived in Perth for over 10 years, I have driven past this restaurant time and time again, and for some reason, I always thought it was closed. Having heard that not only are they still open for business, they are also one of the best Japanese Restaurants in town, I had to give it a go for myself.

An izakaya is a type of Japanese drinking establishment that serves food to accompany the drinks. They are casual places for after-work drinking.

I got that off Wikipedia. 

Izakaya Sakura seem to have countless amount of dishes, all squished into a two sided "bigger than A4, smaller than A3" menu, and with that many dishes, I was glad there were five of us, as I wanted to try everything.

Most memorable were: 

  • Mentai Mochi: The gooey mochi and the strong mentaiko was delicious, but a little bit is more than enough.
  • Grilled Squid: We could not stop eating these! addictive!
  • Lotus Root Chips: It's like real chips, but healthier. (At least that's what I tell myself)
  • Hand Rolls: It's like a neverending treasure find with the amount of fish they put inside, at least until you finish the entire roll.
  • Sashimi: A good selection, and amazingly fresh!

I'm sure there are many more dishes that are amazing, but after having the spread we had up there, we couldn't have anymore, so we ordered dessert. (Pretty sure that whole "Another stomach for Dessert" thing is true)

The green tea mochi was creamy and refreshing, and as they were quite generous with the green tea ice cream, we were all satisfied and happy.

Will definitely be back there a few more times with friends and family, with amazing food and impeccable service, its no wonder that bookings are absolutely necessary.

Jibber-iing | Happy 2015

First things first, HAPPY NEW YEAR! albeit a little late...

I have been fairly behind on a number of things; like assignments, wishing everyone happy new year, behind when I was counting down, and last but not least, late on blog posts.

I don't have any excuse, except writers block and I honestly needed the last few months for myself.

So here's to 2015, resolutions are overated, so I'll just say this:

trying my best is not good enough any more, I will do it, I will finish my assignments and get the certificate, I will work harder on blogging (and hopefully vlogging, we'll see how that goes) and I will strive to be a better person as a whole.

What are your resolutions or do you think they're overrated too?

Food-iing | Fitzgerald Seafood Restaurant

On nights where we are completely lazy to cook, Fitzgerald Seafood Restaurant is probably our first pick. (Second being Siena's, foodication coming soon)

This was one of the nights that we decided, no cooking, lets eat out. We frequent this place a few too many times which brings me to dishes that we would normally order. 

The Hot and Sour soup is a must have, this soup makes its name proud. Pig's Stomach is probably my favourite internal organ, not for everyone, but our entire family loves it. Sweet and Sour pork ribs, slightly different to the ones without bones, but delicious all the same. (My favourite is at James St Kitchen, but as they closed down a while ago, (it is now Meet Fresh) we come here for it instead). Finally, their spinach broth with three types of egg is pretty amazing. 

Great for those lazy nights, and with fruits and desserts after the dinner, its a complete package.
