and I went.

Spent the long weekend back home in Bristol. It was good to be back and be surrounded with family. But also being back in the city where I grew up, the city I haven’t explored for a while until this weekend, it felt different but familiar and yet it’s still welcoming.

Buckbeak the Hippogriff

A friend of mine asked me to draw something for her sister as she is also a Harry Potter fan. Her favourite part of the whole series of films was when Buckbeak was rescued by Harry and Hermione using the time turner.

If you look closely you may be able to spot her name.

Satori

Last weekend, I went back to Kingston with a good friend of mine and reminisce our uni days over bento. We decided to stuff our faces with Japanese food so we went to Satori.

We decided to get some grilled duck gyoza and steamed pork and cabbage dumplings. The dumplings just filled with flavours and it they all burst in your mouth. The duck gyoza was a bit dry but it was very well seasoned.

We also had some sashimi that contains salmon, tuna and mackerel. All very fresh and delicious. I am not big in raw fish but I really enjoyed this dish. The other sushi we had was my favourite, it’s soft shell crab tempura with Japanese pickles and spring onions.

The crab was crispy on the outside and really juicy inside and the flavours goes well together. They were quite big which makes it hard to put it all in my mouth but I’m not complaining because that over all the experience was really good.

David Bowie

As the legendary rock star passed away the other day, people from all over the city came to his birthplace, Brixton, London to celebrate his influence in art, style and of course his music.

It was incredible experience. People singing his songs, there was one guy who parked his truck with big speakers to play his songs and people were just dancing into it and singing along to it. The flow of energy was overwhelming and to be part of that crowd was once in a lifetime experience.

I’m even finding it hard to write this, it was just too beautiful you just had to be there.

My Sundays usually consists of brunch in Brixton Village. It has unique restaurants that will satisfy any taste buds you’re in for. This Sunday we went to Burnt Toast Cafe (completely forgot to take pictures of the food) but trust me it’s really good. People are queuing up for this place, and honestly I did’t mind waiting 15 minutes for the table. After all the food was incredible. It hits that spot especially after an eventful Saturday evening this place is good when you’re hang over and in need of full English breakfast.
