Weekly Slice: Yogurts and Books

Hello! It’s been a while since I’ve done a Weekly Slice post about everyday life, which by now is saturated in the holiday mood. But because I need some excitement during the day, recently I got into eating yogurt. Over the many grocery trips I follow my mom on I’ve gradually accumulated a good variety—there’re ten or so tubs sitting in the fridge now. So I thought I’d share some of the ones I really liked!

(Also I have good news at the end of my post hehe)


kiraDreaming Cow Honey Pear Yogurt

It was the packaging that got to me firstnekoShow me anything with cute illustrations like that and it’ll go straight into the basket. Plus I have a weakness for flavours that are a combination of sweet things—honey and fruit together are glorious.


kiraDreaming Cow Dark Cherry Chai Yogurt

Same brand, but this time the flavour is a little bolder with the spice of chai. With that and the sweet cherry, the taste was nice and richsmileAlso that purple cow on the tub is really funky.


kiraAlmond Dream Yogurt with Coconut

The packaging isn’t nearly as cute, but this turned out to be my favourite one because I am an almond fiend. With the coconut, it was super creamy and filling for such a small tub and I couldn’t get enough of itgirlAlmond is one of my most loved flavours, so I like to get my hands on anything that has it.

Also, I know there’re books in every picture but they’re not just props haha. I always read when I’m eating by myself! Recently I’ve been having book-borrowing sprees at the neighbourhood library.


This was a bunch that I got a while ago. It makes me really happy when I spot a potentially good book. The only problem is that when I get lots of hardcovers it becomes a pain (albeit worth it) to lug them back home because I have to walk while carrying them all.

There’re two books that I enjoyed the most, so I’ll recommend these!


kiraLove and Other Foreign Words by Erin McCahan

I thought this was a pretty slice of life story; the charm was in the protagonist and her eccentric perspective of the people around her. There is nothing I appreciate in a book more than a witty voice. If you like good dry humour, give this one a try!


kiraParallel by Lauren Miller

In this book it was the storyline that sold it to me. After a collision in parallel worlds, a girl’s life gets drastically altered as it becomes affected by the decisions made in her alternate life. Whenever I read books about parallel worlds it always gets a little trippy, but it was a fun ride of suspense to the end of the plot! I love easy science fiction that’s diluted down in a contemporary, more relatable setting. Check this book out for some thrilling plot developmenthappy girl

So these are some of the things I’ve been enjoying.


As for my news, well…

I’m going to Tokyo next weekheartIt’s been a long while. Since my dad is working there now, I’m going to visit and stay with him so I’m really happy I get to do that. I’ll be there for around a month—I’m planning lots of things to do and meetings with friends! Next week I’ll be blogging from Japan so please look forward to itgirl tongue
