prego & grazie

we try to italianise in singapore.
at Cacio e Pepe, which is a little gem of an italian restaurant tucked away in a nice quiet estate at Rochdale,

aglio olio is still on my mind!
anyone knows of any good place for aglio olio?

only difference is that the bread board served here is toasty warm and cripsy,
they believe in cold hard bread over in Italy, all the better to soak up the olio with.

parma ham with melon, i only got to eat it twice in Italy ): i think the one at La Cantina in Venezia is just as good as those we tried in Italy though!

fettucini, linguine, tagliatelle, pappardelle, ravioli, tortellini, penne,
i've yet to start on the next 4 days worth of pictures. reality is rather unforgiving because i have about a million and one things to do before i think i even have time to look at those pictures.

but never mind,
here are some pictures thieved off Fish's
old-school lomo film :) they turned out really awesome!
all picture credits to Fishy darling.


we listen to GoogleMaps.

that's medusa's head right there,

little flooded puddles of venice

the view of the vatican after 663 steps (more on that when i actually get to there in my travelogues)

riots, superimposed with..

the Leaning Tower

spot us.

ok . lastly random self-shot. hahahaha.

randomly, i think i have ADD. hahahaha.
or am i just lazy/too much of a procrastinator :(

oh wait.
procastination is a trait of ADD!
what an excuse.

  • Procrastination
  • Indecision, difficulty recalling and organizing details required for a task
  • Poor time management, losing track of time
  • Avoiding tasks or jobs that require sustained attention
  • Difficulty initiating tasks
  • Difficulty completing and following through on tasks
  • Difficulty multitasking
  • Difficulty shifting attention from one task to another

While you’re probably aware that people with ADD/ADHD have trouble focusing on tasks that aren’t interesting to them, you may not know that there’s another side: a tendency to become absorbed in tasks that are stimulating and rewarding. This paradoxical symptom is called hyperfocus.

Hyperfocus is actually a coping mechanism for distraction—a way of tuning out the chaos. It can be so strong that you become oblivious to everything going on around you. For example, you may be so engrossed in a book, a TV show, or your computer that you completely lose track of time and neglect the things you’re supposed to be doing. Hyperfocus can be an asset when channeled into productive activities, but it can also lead to work and relationship problems if left unchecked.

oh no!

i think that sounds like me! :(


back to work work!


  1. Oh dear yina, both aspects of ADD that you mentioned apply to me all too truly :( on that note, my younger sis does have ADD, guess it's in the family!

  2. seraphsdesire: oh no! is she being treated for it in any way? :(
