After work today, I invited Iylia for lunch with me at Studio Bomba. We shared a moist and gooey brownie with huge walnuts. The wise Iylia quipped as-a-matter-of-factly, “This is the best brownie I’ve ever had in Perth, seriously.”
Okay, so it turned out to be a spontaneous coffee+brownie session instead of actual lunch but that’s all right – as long as we had an excuse to spend time at the light and airy studio-cum-coffee bar.
Not sure if you noticed but I just had to take a bite off the brownie before I took this photo. Couldn’t resist. So yumm. I also really like the geometric divider because it reminds me of the old HDB flats in Singapore
In Malay, my mother tongue, “Bomba” refers to “Firefighter”. That bit of fun fact spun a short and sweet conversation with Leah, one of the two creative owners of Studio Bomba. She shared that Studio Bomba is actually a namesake of ‘La Bomba’, a character in an Italian film (I believe), which meant “the Bombshell”. Cute. And effective. Studio Bomba is loaded with tons of kitschy products that’ll make your eyes twinkle, make you fiddle, and make you go, “Ahhhh…“, as though you’ve just discovered something revolutionary. Well, at least that’s what it did to me.
I got the Tattly tatoos for Kristal and the Gold Heart stickers for myself!
My outfit for the day which was heavily-inspired by The Carrie Diaries (don’t you just love that show?!?):
Sleep early, kids! Otherwise you’ll end up looking like me in the morning – tired eyes, bad hair. Worst combi.
