Look Book for June 2017 ( Spring / Summer )

Is already the mid of July and is already a few weeks into summer. Is getting hotter and more humid day by day and not forgetting that the rainy season is also in summer. Is so hot, wet and humid.. Sounds just like Singapore. Well, one thing I really do not like is the heat, so I am flying back to Singapore once my school semester is over! At least Singapore has more public air-con places than Kyoto. 

Since this look book is for June and The start of summer is around June 21st, so it means that it will have both spring and summer coordination! There were also some days that was raining, so I tend to wear longer skirts for that. (Is also the rainy season) Since being summer, I have brought out most of my Liz Lisa outfits!! Somehow I also notice that most of my sandals are from DreamV, they are just really comfortable and perfect for summer and spring. 

The Best part about July is also Summer sale now and most of the shop is having discount, which is up to 70%!!! Man, I wish I hadmore money!! Since Summer clothing is perfect for Singapore weather.

For people in Singapore and neighboring countries, I have created a Facebook Group for Larme-Kei lovers or for people who are interested in the fashion!

Terrance : Sweet & Meal (Kyoto-shi)



On the streets of  Shinkyogoku in Kyoto, there is a shop called Terrace that open not too long ago. I always thought it was a cafe that sells pancakes, but I was wrong when I tried it out myself. 
The place is decorated like a cozy hut which has many leaves. cushion, flowers and birds which give a really relaxing feeling. Great place to hang out with the girls and chat! 

The place is surprisingly big as there is 2 stories and there is even party size table! 






So what is Terrance?

Image from their webpage for reference

From a glance, it looks like a stack of pancakes!!! However, it is not, but I can say is rather close to one. It is basically a giant french toast! Yup! That thing is a french toast!! It says to be their specialty and it can't be made at home because of the special log bread. 

So I order the Premium Terrance which is their original and best seller. I also topped it up to make it a drink set. 
Fresh toast and Tea, one of the best combinations. 



When it came, I was amazed at how it looks. I still thought that it was a stack of pancakes. Having the toast looks like a log instead of a block and have rings and layers really make the illusion of a pancake. To top it off with butter, powder sugar and a side of maple syrup, it just like what I expected of pancakes. 




But I was fooled when I cut into it, and to my surprise it was a toast that was soft and gooey in the inside. I was shock and amaze! This was a french toast, it really is! When I took my first bite, it was heavenly. Everything just comes together and it was so right. Like this was a perfect creation for french toast and I didn't want to see another square french toast anymore. Since this makes more sense right? A tower french toast with the middle have both toast, egg battered and butter. Outside was toasted, crispy with a hint of caramelize butter and sugar while the inside is just soft, with a little bit of salty and sweet. How can this go wrong?!? 

One thing I did wrong was not getting whipped cream on the side!
Word of advice: get the whipped cream or ice cream if you don't mind the calories.




Even thought the Terrance french toast looks small in photos, it quite filling and usually is shared between two people. (Great for a date! or sharing with your girl friends.) If you love carbs and usually eat more than 3 - 4 toast for breakfast. Then this will be just nice for you. Even for me, I left about 1/4 left as it was too much for me even thought it was really good. 

       The next time I go back to Terrance, I would want to bring Vincent along or one of my friends and try out their savory Terrance which is really popular! Their egg Benedict is their next best dish after the premium Terrance, so if you are looking for something on the savory side... Do try their Egg Benedict DX.

Thread Cafe (Kyoto-Shi)


Thread Cafe is a cozy natural theme cafe that is tucked away inside at a street in Kyoto city resident area. One may not notice that it is a cafe as the outer appearance is mostly just a sign board with their menu or today's special which hints you that is a cafe inside. It feels like is going through a rabbit hole and you will see the cafe appearance which is not as shady as the entrance. 


Drawing and poems can be seen on the way to the cafe and it tells you a bit of their theme. Somewhere along the line of natural and the beach, the cafe gives out a very nice morning sunshine environment. 



The selection is not a lot like a mainstream cafe however, you can ensure that the quality is there. They are also more focus on special and seasonal menus. You can expect something new almost every month or season. 

I had their coffee for my first visit and it has a really nice aroma and is not heavy. (Not sure what beans they use thought) I order the Cafe au Lait as I didn't want something too bitter or heavy. When it came, the cup and utensil just match their theme perfectly.

My friend also ordered their caramel latte and it was really good. (Well, how wrong can a caramel latte go wrong right.)


Overall, I like their drinks but I wish that they will have cocoa soon~ 






One of their dishes that instantly became my favorite is their Chamomile with lemon Muffin. Paired it with freshly made apple juice and my breakfast is complete. After this, I was in bliss and my day started off well. I thought I wouldn't be able to taste the chamomile, but it came out really nicely with the hint of walnuts and lemon. Mixing it with the handmade cream was even better. 

I was sure that I won't be able to find this muffin anywhere else. 


Their breakfast set really looks good and I may try it soon! I have tried one of their lunch set before, but I didn't get to take a picture of it. Most of the food they server is well balance with lots of veggies and not drench in sauce. What I saw was their set are in parts with small side dishes with one main, which goes well with each other. I shall try one more soon and probably update this post!

Look Book for May (Spring)


May has passed and is JUNE!!! and that means is going to be summer in Japan and it is getting really hot. (ugh) So for this post, it will be May issue look book and it will still be in the spring. The Next look book will be summer inspired! (And probably with shorter skirts) 

I noticed that if I dress up almost everyday for school, I will have around 14 coordination each month, Since I don't have school on Friday. Hopefully to keep that up! Is just so fun trying to find new coordination style for my current clothes. 

I also have recently been trying to practice my hair styling. I manage to pin up a bun recently and to me it was an achievement! Going to do more when I have the time (or if I wake up early) instead of just keep on using the normal style that I know. Japan has a lot of magazine and books that teaches how to do cute hairstyles and I really want to try them! 

For people in Singapore and neighboring countries, I have created a Facebook Group for Larme-Kei lovers or for people who are interested in the fashion!
