bow down

E X P L O R E || SS Great Britain, Bristol

This weekend, I watched Titanic [released when Leonardo DiCaprio was a fresh faced 21 year old]. My last memory of watching this film [I haven't watched it that many times] was while I was in Junior School at my bestie Joanna's sleepover party. I genuinely don't remember it being as horrific as watching it now older and apparently more attuned to the gravity of this disaster. These great vessels were built to be able to transport those who could afford it across to new worlds, for new opportunities or simply to visit loved ones. Without the luxury and convenience of air travel as it is today, this was the only way to travel great distances. What happened to the RMS Titanic was just tragic. Watching the film also reminded me of the last time I was in Bristol when pops took me to visit SS Great Britain - another great ship which, unlike the Titanic, I was able to get up close and personal with.

tea at the ritz darling

F O O D || afternoon tea @ The Ritz

A couple of weekends ago, I got the chance to tick off a little something special on my To Eat list: afternoon tea at The Ritz London. I'm not going to lie, it was a pretty fancy affair [read on to temporarily step inside with me and see more snaps of the actual tea]. Even days before, I was contemplating what to wear [I didn't want to stand out like a sore thumb or look like I was trying too hard] and wondering whether everything inside The Ritz would be covered in gold [I wasn't far off… minus the marble and palm trees]. The atmosphere and service definitely didn't disappoint with the afternoon tea itself being delightful but [controversially] amongst but not the best in LDN. [8 / 10]

ducky duck duck

R E S E T || that duck life

Hi team, it's been a while. I have been seriously lacking in this bloggy-business but rest assured I have built up all that suspense for a magnificent post, all about… ducks. That's right, see picture above if you can't remember what one looks like. "But Cathia, why haven't you posted anything for a month and where have you been?!" I hear you all cry [maybe]. Well my friends, I have been busy taking pictures of ducks and doing other fun life activities of a similar nature. I also lost my camera cable which has resulted in lazy-blogging-habits-failure. Excuses aside [e.g. the ducks ate my homework], if you want to know why I am sharing nice pictures of ducks with you, please, read on.
