Greenwich Market.

When I went back to London for a bit, my friend came with me and I took her to Greenwich market. I love the atmosphere and vibe from this particular market. The bustle, the many little trinkets you don’t find … Continue reading

I’m going to apologise for not being very active yesterday, coursework deadlines have arrived and admittedly I may have fallen behind a little. A-Levels are all easy going until the second you start to go lenient on yourself – trust me. Now I’ve got to put loads of hard work in throughout Easter. *sigh*.

Anyway yesterday evening I took a break and went cinema with my boyfriend to watch G.I.Joe and oh my goodness was it worth going. It’s amazing! Action packed the whole way through with plenty of muscle and skin on show ;). Through the entire 1 hour and 50 minutes my eyes were glued, simply amazing. Just what I needed! Quality time to catch up with my boyfriend and some good entertainment with minimal effort ;).

After the film, we took a trip down to subway and got a footlong ( to split ) and 12 cookies and a hot chocolate for ¬£7 ūüėĪ so goooood. Got back and munched out while doing coursework until bloody 2 in the morning! Dedication right there. Actually it was probably more guilt…

I’m pretty annoyed at this moment. My cereal ran out yesterday but there was two yogurts left so I was like okay ill have them for breakfast this morning. But no. Someone ate them. I’m
Not eating left over cookies and coffee. Belly my feeling too good…

Money Money Money

IMG_3898

I think I can speak on behalf of everyone living out there: at some point, money has or will be a problem. Whether you’re not financially stable enough to provide for yourself and others or the complete opposite and it can often create uncomfortable scenarios. These cases of not it is and always will be an issue.

At the moment I’m a student surviving off my father and I’m not the sort of person who agrees with taking advantage of their parents and I do take into consideration the amount of hours he works for his money and so I don’t ever ask for anything more than I need. However sometimes it’s nice to indulge a little, to be treated, to have that ¬£5 ready meal instead of the ¬£2! But it’s just not fair on him. I’ve learned to live without many many luxuries and to be grateful for what I have. I’m not selfish, I’m not naive and I know how to survive on my own two feet; but I still can’t help but feel guilty.

I know there are people out there who feel they ‘deserve’ the finer things in live and they’re all cosy with their money stacking up and they come from a money tree of a family and I just feel that they should take a step back and really appreciate what they have. Actually think about the things they ‘need’ and separate them from the ‘wants’.

Money is a huge motivator in life for me. It affects practically every decision I make and choices I make for the future. I just don’t want to be scrimping and saving my whole life. I want to be proud of what I’ve achieved and have something to show for it. Plus I’ve promised my Dad a nifty two-seater sports car… oh and a room in my huge house so he won’t have to go to an old people’s home heheh ;).

Not quite sure what the point is that I’m trying to make here but I just felt the need to write about something that’s troubling me.

Tarn Thai.

Nottingham has a wide variety of restaurants and a few Thai ones too, however; none like Tarn Thai. Located in the middle of Hockley’s lively atmosphere, this restaurant is one of it’s prize possessions.

Tarn Thai declared itself open during the heatwave of 2006 and ever since, there has always been an easy flow of customers, ranging from romantic dinner dates to business clients. The exterior design refelects a very modern, sturdy building and if you take a sneaky peek through the windows, you can see one of the water features with the live fish swimming happily in their perfect haven Рa very nice touch of elegence in my opinion.

The internal decor is simply beautiful. Dripping¬†with¬†expensive furnishings, the whiff of quality food and the musty scent of insense¬†burning, transports you¬†to the peaceful nature of Thailand itself. As you¬†relax back in the unusually comfortable chairs, you can’t help but admire the atmosphere and the amount of organisation that must have gone into such designings.

The waiters attend to your every needs with a smile and a soft glow to their eyes, you know they’re genuinely happy to serve you. It’s a pretty swift service yet not rushed. I felt I could take my time and there was no one breathing down my back just waiting to give my seat to another customer. Yes they were nearby and always on hand but isn’t that what we call good service?

The kitchen shows a practised hand in dishes such as marinated beef or grilled sea bream in banana leaves. The prices are very reasonable and the lunch menu inparticular is value for money at it’s best. The way they lay out their food really is an ‘instagram moment’. The rice is moulded into a heart shape and the salad garnishings on the side are prettily carved into flowers and cut very decoratively. It’s a lovely sight and an absolute delight to eat.

I love it here and I think many others will too, I sincerely encourage you to come and experience the Tarn Thai ambiance!
