Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters

1:25 PM

The hectic week is almost over and I'd like to think that the weeks to come are going to be more forgiving but... School always has it ways to throw me off guard. This coming weekend is going to be sooooo packed with many of my personal endeavours I hope I don't burn out before Monday's thirteen long hours of tutorials and lectures.

Anyway, Jolaine and I found some precious free time off our school and work schedules to finally visit Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters!! They've been in my to-go list ever since they took over where Liquid Kitchen used to be on Thomson road, mainly because they have this all-white interior that beckons me to visit every time the bus to school passes by it. Finally another cafe checked off the list!!

We got ourselves the Salmon Royale, Oven Baked 5 Cheese Macaroni, Truffle Fries, Lemongrass Ricotta Hotcakes and an iced Mocha! Yes, it's a lot for two people I almost died attempting to finish them. But it's okay, since I'm currently loading up on cargo for an upcoming marathon (huehuehue that's right I'm participating in a marathon this weekend but more about that on a later date).

Their truffle fries was probably the best out of everything we've ordered, though the lemongrass hotcakes was super pretty in real life and on camera?? I thought that it might just be another one of those superficial beauties but hey the lemongrass was quite refreshing on the palate.
I only had a mouthful of Jolaine's Salmon Royale but they had fish roe mixed with their hollandaise sauce atop the poached eggs and smoked salmon, making it double thumbs up!!

We both thought that cafe ventures are always the perfect excuse to better ourselves with our photography, especially since we didn't do too well for our previous photojournalism assignment. ):
To say that I'm disappointed would be an understatement. It feels like all the photos I've been taking thus far is nothing more than a joke (not that I'm saying the photos I'm taking now are perfect) and that's pretty depressing.
I spent the whole night reflecting on the criticism given by my lecturer and decided that it's time I up my photography game. I guess his deliberate harshness was meant to wake me up and it did it's job. I'm never ever gonna be slammed that bad during presentation again!!!

This cafe trip feels like a step towards the right direction? Because I really tried damn hard to get better photos this time. And if it still isn't good... I guess I just have no talent lol. Time to pack my bags and travel around the world in search of a greater perhaps maybe.

Meanwhile, I know that this is kind of slow but I'm really hooked onto Taylor Swift's 1989 album LOL. How could there be so many sick tunes and relatable lyrics in one album?! My favourites have got to be Wildest Dream, This Love, You Are In Love, I Know Places, Wonderland and Clean.

Okay have fun judging me all you want HAHAH bye.
