No exam for the rest of this week!

My vibrant trousers made its debut today. It's probably my first trouser that features any sort of color other than black and white :) So ridiculously comfortable and just so me.

I tried the tazo chai tea today. It wasn't bad really, but I still can't stand the unnecessary spices they put in it. I diluted the spices with milk and some sugar, which helped erase the lingering cinnamon (and almost fruit cake like) taste after drinking it.

 I just realized how I seriously need a new pair of pixie  (or as some call it "granny") boots. Mine has obviously seen better days after being severely abused for nearly five and half years now. I might just go with a simple, black (or dusk brown) Chelsea boots next. The lack of laces and long-rounded body give chelsea boots a  ridiculously relaxed and masculine vibe which I thoroughly enjoy. 

For dinner, I finally made my favorite tilapia dish. I tried to make it like my mum's divine tilapia curry-soup dish, but I'm just not that great. Nevertheless, the tilapia came out great and topped with quinoa, it was an ideal healthy, gluten-free meal (at least for a college student with limited resources).

 dish: tilapia cut into small pieces and seasoned in curry, turmeric, cumin, red chili, black pepper, red pepper, parsley, cilantro, and onion powder. Fried on a skillet with olive oil just barely cooked and then put into a saucepan with chopped tomatoes, spinach and a can of diced tomatoes. Sprinkle some salt, 3 green cayenne pepper (diced) and some more curry powder. You can stop here and let the dish sit on medium to med-high heat, but personally, I enjoy my dishes more on the thicker, soupy side so I poured a cup of water after letting the mix sit for 5 minutes. After 10 to 15 more minutes, it's done! Bon appetite :)
