Chinese Breakfast with the Girls

Nov 10 (1) Nov 10 (2)  

Saturday November 10, 2012

This is what I wore to have Chinese breakfast with my two best friends. I don't wear brown and black together very often, but when I do I always love it! I also really like my leopard nails ;)

I have a confession to make: I absolutely LOVE Chinese breakfast! I believe it isn't popular in the United States, so I thought I would snap a couple of photos from the experience so that you can all see what it is like.

As you can see, the decor of the restaurant is amazing! The food is also very very good. A Chinese breakfast mostly consists of bite sized food made out of rice, veggies, and/or pork all steamed and served hot. I know it doesn't sound yummy to have this for breakfast, but believe me IT IS!

If it were up to me, I would have Chinese breakfast every single day. Especially with the great company of my two best friends Maite and Diana ;)

Have you ever had Chinese breakfast?

  10. I haven't heard of Chinese Breakfast, but it looks a little like what we call "dim sum". I'm not sure if it's the same, but different dishes in little pans and wood steamers get passed around in carts and customers can pick and choose which ones to try. Love your nails!

  18. I LOVE dimsum! I really wish I lived in a place that offered it more. we have a couple of restaurants that do, but they're in really awful locations for parking, so we rarely go. I LOVE the shape of this hat! It's adorable.

  23.  Ooohhh so you have tried Disum Laura?! Thats so cool!! I looked high and low for restaurants that would offer it in Maryland while I was living in the U.S., but I couldn't find a single one. Sorry to hear that the locations are so bad where you live. Hope you have a great day Laura ;)

  26.  Thank you Petra, glad you liked them!! The spike bracelet is from Asos.com, and they are still selling it if you are interested.

  29.  Thank you Mariana, you are so sweet :)

  30.  Oh yes, it IS indeed an experience. There are waiters with little carts that go around with the pans filled with food. Then you ask for what you want and they serve it on the spot. I hope you get to try it someday Jody! Thanks for saying you like my outfit btw ;)

  31. I agree Lyddie! Leopard print is proof that brown and black look great together. In fact, I always like to through in a little-something leopard when I wear black and brown. Hope you are doing well!

  32.  Thank you Ashley!! It sure IS delish! Hope you get to try it someday :)

  41.  Hello Teresa!! Glad to hear you liked my nails, thank you! To answer your question, I used Sally Hansen Nail strips on my nails. They are basically like a sticker that you place on your nail so that it has different patterns and such. You can find them in drugstores and supermarkets. Hope you have a great day!

  42.  Hello Alyssa!! Thanks so much for your sweet comment! To answer your question, I ordered this hat from Forever21 like a month or so ago. I see that they no longer offer it on their site, but I searched around and found one that is almost identical on Asos.com: http://us.asos.com/Catarzi-Exclusive-to-Asos-Velvet-Riding-Hat/yzv90/?iid=2358092&SearchQuery=black%20hat&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Black&mporgp=L0NhdGFyemkvQ2F0YXJ6aS1FeGNsdXNpdmUtdG8tQXNvcy1WZWx2ZXQtUmlkaW5nLUhhdC9Qcm9kLw..   Thanks again for stopping by!

  45.  Thats awesome Sara!! Yeah, I remember I didn't like it the first time I went. It was kind of strange to have pork for breakfast or veggies. But after a couple of times I was completely hooked! Thanks for stopping by, have a great day :)

  53.  Are you serious?!?! Waooooo, thats pretty disgusting!!! I'm so sorry to hear that. I go there because its close by and well, quite tasty. I also like the Golden Unicorn though, but its a little more out of my way.

    ReplyDelete
  54. marie, totally cute outfit! did the hat come with or did you put it with it? it looks perfect. i like how you mixed the copper in, and your monkey ring with the nails. i hadn't heard of a  chinese breakfast until now.

    ReplyDelete
  55.  Thank you so much Teddi!!  I bought the hat on a separate ocassion, but thought they looked good together. You should definitely try Chinese breakfast sometime, it's really tasty!!

  57. Hello Alyssa!! Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. I'm soooo sorry I didn't answer you until now, how embarrasing. You can find hats like this one on Asos.com I believe. Thanks again for stopping by and sorry for the delayed response!

  58.  Hello Teresa!! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and commenting! I could have swooooorn that I had answered this comment, but I guess I didn't. I'm so so sorry about the late response.

    To answer your question, my nails are actually some Sally Hansen Nail strips! They are basically stickers that you apply on your nails. Pretty funky huh?

    Hope you had a wonderful holiday! Thanks again ;)
