I live in the Bay Area and I like food.
My family's in town since my niece - an incoming Cal freshman - is moving into Berkeley today, and Facebook decided to remind me that I moved in as a transfer student on this day exactly 8 YEARS AGO. WAT. Time really flies and that makes me feel old. I also wish there were more cute study spots like Babette when I was a student - like in the middle of an art museum! Also, pistachio lemon cake is SO GOOD. I'm glad the woman at the register sold me on it - it didn't take much tbh.
Here's to hoping it cools down and we don't melt over the weekend. At least there's always ice cream. 🍦💕
After my boba delivery at work (it was a group order, ok, it wasn’t just me 😂) got canceled last week, I’ve really been wanting some - especially with this heat wave! Don’t worry, it wasn’t from @blacksugarboba, but they DO deliver. 🔥
Happy Independence Day, Pakistan. 🇵🇰 I was gonna write some long. ~deep~ thing but it's too hot and I need go make pizza for dinner. I haven't taken picture of Pakistani food in awhile, so these painted mugs + kettle from Pakistan will have to do. 😂 Also, swipe right to see me repping the motherland in 1st grade with a (terrible) hand-drawn Pakistani flag, shalwar kameez, and sneakers - that #pakistanistreetstyle tho. (More like aunty taking her afternoon walk in the neighborhood tbh)
Eid Mubarak! Having an extra chill day today - hope everyone has a good time celebrating, eating good food, and spending quality time with family and friends. ✨
One of my favorite marquees (yes, I have a few) in Berkeley, now with a mural. ✨
