Apartment therapy in Shanghai

I’m listening to Nujabes and working on a simmer pot recipe. Add two sticks of cinnamon, apple peels, orange rinds, and a drop of vanilla into a small pot of boiling water. My apartment smells like autumn!

Talking of my apartment…here are some photos of my place! It’s my first time living alone in my very own apartment. It’s just a cozy one-bedroom apartment with a full kitchen, living room, and a bathroom.

My living room is cozy. I’ve got a small sofa-bed, an ottoman, a red blanket, and some colorful pillows. I picked up those sassy vintage Chinese posters in Hong Kong and picked up the framed from Ikea.

My dining area with four seats. I got some potted plants from a plant market here. I’m really pleased my plants are still doing well!

My spacious minimalist bedroom. A comfy bed, an old alarm clock, some DVDs, and a lamp. My apartment came with a wardrobe, a display case, a desk, and a flat screen television. But I hardly use any of those.

Tonight I’m baking my apple pie. I’m so nervous! I only have a tiny little oven and I’ve never baked using one of those before. But I crushed some walnuts in there. I hope it turns out!

    your apartment looks so Sewon!
    if I make myself a simmer pot it'll be straight up vanilla.

    if you add apple cider and cloves in your pot, you'd have a spiced apple cider!

    simmer pot recipe eh? That sounds like such a good idea! Also, I really like the prints you have on your wall, it reminds me of these rice paper blotting sheets I used to have (the lady on the front looked really similar)
