Cute Props at Cemal Cemil for the Great Procrastinator


When I say "I perform well under extreme pressure", what I really meant was "I am a huge procrastinator".
Seriously.
Most of the time, I can't do anything unless it is at the very last minute.


Just like this week. I've promised to join various food blog events, the due dates are dangerously near, I haven't started thinking of what to cook for some events, and for the ones I've cooked, I can't even start to sort through my gadzillion failed pictures to find some decent shots to post, let alone think of anything clever to write.


I guess the desperately needed inspiration may come later when the hosts have already shunned me forever from the blogosphere due to broken promises and missed deadlines. Hehehehe, a minute late, a dollar short.


To celebrate my ongoing procrastination, I am sharing this fabulous little corner I found in Puri Indah Mall, Jakarta. The Cemal Cemil (Indonesian for Snack) corner tries to recreate and sell old and classic Indonesian snacks and accessories, such as permen cicak, permen rokok, the yellow and pale green metal mugs, and the classic green and white patterned mugs, and many more!

Being a lover of everything old, you can imagine how I was lusting over every single bit of stuff sold at that corner. It was so frustrating to know that I have absolutely NO space to keep any of them in my tiny Hong Kong flat.

Should I buy? My brain was saying NO, NO, NO! But my heart was saying YES, YES, YES!

My brain won. Dammit!

Go ahead, buy away, make me jealous.

What a great little place! I'm like you - procrastinator extraordinaire who believes her best work is done at the very last minute (and it actually is - I think the rush of adrenaline gets the creative juices flowing!).
