I love Afternoon Tea. And it's no surprise that sometimes I have them at my house on my own. Not only does it cost less, but you can purchase a tea set that would last for a very long time.
This time though, I've done it a tad bit differently. Instead of the usual British afternoon tea set with scones and sandwiches, I ate Indonesian pastries instead. Some of them didn't mix well with tea, but that's alright, because you can eat them separately if you want to.
I am so in love with the tea set! I was lucky enough to get it as a late birthday present from my mom's relative. The brand of the set is by Royal Albert, and I've been eyeing it up for so long that I was super duper giddy when I got my hands on it. The quality of the teacup is amazing. I especially love the color and the intricate details on the cup.
I've been posting so much about relaxation lately, but I thought it was fitting since the colder weather has come. And I don't know about you, but when winter comes (rainy season here in Indonesia), I would rather stay at home than go out of the house.

I love photography, so it was quite fun to indulge in tea and pastries while taking snaps of it. Took me quite a while to get a great pictures of it all, but it worked out fine in the end. I think the most important thing for photography is the lighting and angle. That's my own opinion though. But it also depends what camera you're using.
Sorry that this was quite a short post! I've been super busy today. I'm flying out to Malaysia tomorrow and am supposed to do some other stuff today. Well adios, people! I should probably pack right now, but I've been reading other people's blogposts for hours now. (Ha!). Also if you'd like, follow me on Bloglovin here. I'd be happy if you do! :)
Much love, Ashley xx
