Hello everyone! Thursday my boyfriend and I attempted to go see an exhibition (Castelo Rá-Tim-Bum one) but the tickets were already sold out so we went to watch The Fault in Our Stars at the movie theater instead.
I'm a big fan of John Green, I watch his videos on YouTube and I've read two of his books (will grayson; will grayson which I loved and Paper Towns which I haven't liked that much) but no, I never red TFIOS, not because I didn't want too, but because I kept postponing buying the book, I don't read English books translated into Portuguese because the translation annoys me and the English version is not as cheap and easy to find as the translated one.Of course if the original book is written in German or French, for example, I don't mind the translation since I don't speak those languages.
About the movie: same thing you are hearing from everyone else, that is really sad and I cried a lot, etc but I really enjoyed the movie despite it's sadness, we also got to know another ice cream shop that day which was actually a Crepe & Waffles store with an Ice Cream shop attached to it, from what I've heard this is a Colombian brand that just opened a few stores around here.

On Saturday we went to a vegetarian place for lunch, it was called Horta Cafe & Bistrot (and it's around Pinheiros in case you are from here) I only have compliments to make about their food and service.
Our choices were very typical brazilian dishes (feijoada and moqueca if you know what I mean) that usually have meat and fish, but in very creative vegetarian versions. Instead of using fish for example, they used mushrooms.
If you live around here and enjoy vegetarian food I strongly recommend this place also because it's so inexpensive and the dessert is included:
|Pavê (cold chocolate pie).|
|Had to remove all the onions >.<|
On the Saturday afternoon we briefly went to our local Asian district too, a Tanabata Matsuri was happening there and we had the chance to try ginger ice cream, I also brought a daifuku home:
Daifuku is usually a mochi with azuki bean paste and a whole strawberry inside but this one was mochi with the whole strawberry, whipped cream and cake instead you can buy it at Kaisen store at Galvão Bueno (although most readers of this blog are from the U.S, the second most are from Brazil so I feel the need to give the information in case they want :p)
The highlight of the day was that my boyfriend got a haircut!! He hadn't had one in about a year and his hair was so long that he was wearing it in a ponytail most of the time, we went to a hair salon and I shameless showed a picture of Lee Minho to the hair stylist and ta-dah! He looks so different after the haircut that I'm still taking my time getting used to his new appearance because even though his looks improved I kinda miss his old self. I'll see if I can get a good picture of him next weekend hahaha (evil girlfriend laugh).
On Sunday we stayed home being lazy and watching the 4th season of The Walking Dead, I cooked salmon with mushrooms for dinner and we watched Divergent online, I was quite surprised to see that the main character of Divergent is played by the same actress that plays Hazel on TFIOS but when I saw that the Divergent girl's brother was the same actor that plays Augustus then I was really shocked... such a coincidence we watched both movies in the same weekend! I didn't like this movie that much and I don't intend to read the book series, some people compare it to the Hunger Games but to me the second is much superior. I might watch the upcoming "Divergent" movies though.
That's it for today, have a great week everyone ♡
