Life, work & dates

Posted on 12-02-2014

Hi guys! I’m so sorry I haven’t blogged in ages and ages. To be honest I’ve been caught up in other things… work, clubs, friends, the bf… hahaha. I feel so bad since I finally reached 500 subbies Need to edit the video on my SD card asap omg.

Well a number of things has happened recently. I went to Venus Bay with Bryan and his family, then to a bunch of Chinese New Year gatherings with both my fam and his, which was pretty hectic. Then I’ve had meetings with various firms for CCA, and some meetings for KIMBAP, the Korean Cultural Club that I am part of as general committee, but mostly I am just an advisor and graphics designer. I made a lot of cute logos and posters for them, it’s really fun since it’s quite cartoony hehe.

Also I’ve been working… not just at my new job, although thats a thing on its own, but also making websites for small businesses for my friends I also made myself a portfolio but I don’t think I’ll link it here, just to keep personal/business separate. I’ll probs have to charge everyone else who wants a website from now on cause so much stresssu o__o I’m really enjoying it right now though. I like not having uni worries at all, and doing things on my own at my pace.

Let me see… well besides all that, last week I met up with my good friend Simone for bowling and a catch up which was amazing since I haven’t seen her in a billion yrs and I luv her hahaha. But soon after I got really sick.. like I had half a box of tissues in my handbag, used that WHOLE thing up and then used another entire tissue box up. It was really frustrating, I had a meeting with a firm the next day but there was no way I could go with a red nose and fever, and dat tissue consumption.

Over the weekend I got better, then the other day I had to go to Harbourtown with Bryan because date+buying friend present for her 21st. There was a pile of dandelions in the middle of the place… which is weird because it’s pretty much a concrete jungle. (didnt edit because cbs)

Then today I had work, but it’s really far away so I’m pretty tired afterwards.  But no rest!  Because I won tickets to see the “preview screening” of Endless Love.  So random, I was just looking for something to do for Valentines day, then saw the contest and figured I should enter.  Then I won yay!!

I was expecting the cinema to be kinda bad… because usually they’re pretty small, but definitely not this time hehe.  They gave us a huge cinema with red curtains and leather seats, and complimentary gold, heart-shaped chocolates!

The movie was pretty good, though the story line was ridiculous.  But what do you expect of romantic movies tbh.  The point is their love > everything.  And the drama/feels were stronk.  We bought the Valentines day deal, which had a big bucket of popcorn, two giant drinks, and a box of malteasers yay.

Most unhealthy day for sure.  This is probs why I get sick 24/7.

Afterwards we decided to have dinner at TGI Fridays.  Everyone tells us it’s overpriced and not that great.  But we really enjoyed it!  I think you have to go a little bit all-out though, I’m sure their normal burgers are pretty typical.  But the quesidillas and Bryan’s Jack Daniels Burger was great!

Service was really good too… we tipped more than we can afford LOL.  Oh well.  On Friday we’re going to Valentines Day dinner!!!  Then Qld soon… I think I am spoilt HAhaha :D  But soon uni starts again and reality kicks back in.

Food Adventures!

Posted on 22-12-2013 | Tags: , , ,

So I cbs another camping post for now.. I guess I’ll talk about the food I’ve had recently! No watermarks, cause I’m lazy and forgot to put one on LOL.

Polish Food with my Aunty, Uncle and Brother for his birthday! I’ve never had it before, so it was really interesting and delicious hehe. Ever since I watched Simon and Martina from EYK go to Poland, I’ve wanted to try Pierogi so bad. But my expectations of it were perhaps too high. They were nice, but not amazing. I loved all the potato dishes and the beef roll thingies though!

My fave dish overall was the potato pancakes- S…something. They were sooo good. But potato dishes all tend to look pretty plain so no pics.

The potato cakes were so weird, in a good way. It was sort of like glutinous rice, but potato version. Then there’s beef inside (since we chose beef haha). Really nice! I thought it was just like, mashed potato but it was a unique texture and delicious.

Not pictured- Polish Dumplings (Pierogi), Polish Potato Cakes and potato pancakes. Cannot remember the real names for most of these.

Bigos – Official Dish of Poland

The dessert- Polish Jam Donuts, were really tasty. They were similar to Krispy Kremes but somewhat lighter and less sweet- the jam was a tiny bit sour which made it really nice~
There was also poppyseed cake, which wasn’t that good… I’m not a fan of poppyseeds.

Anyway it was a real culinary treat for me on Saturday because not only did I have Polish food, but I even had French for dinner, for Bryan and my monthversary. He actually pointed out to me at dinner that it was the first time we have had a dinner date! Before he got his license, it was very difficult for us to have dinner together because he’d have to go home via public transport which I thought would be unsafe since he would be alone and the area he lives can be somewhat dangerous. Anyway, he has eaten dinner with me at my house, at his house and with our friends before but this is the first “dinner date” at a restaurant. I didn’t realise at all actually.

It was tasty, as expected. I love french onion soup. Perhaps we should have gotten escargot but I’ve had it before and I wasn’t too much in the mood for it, and neither was he. So we ended up having the soup, mains– eye fillet steaks with bacon and wine sauce, and for me “Canard aux Noix”: a duck dish with orange sauce and almond crisp.

Must admit, I liked his dish a lot more than my own. Last time I went to a French restaurant and had Duck L’Orange, it was delicious. But this dish was a bit weird… It was okay. I liked his steak a lot. So nicely cooked and tender and yummy.

Dessert though. French desserts are the BEST. Definitely the highlight of the meal– we got two, one Crepe Suzette because I wanted to show Bryan something quintessentially French, and a Cerise…something. It was super good. Both were good, but Bryan enjoyed the Crepes more due to the alcohol. I liked the Cerise thing cause I have a sweet tooth.

The Crepe Suzette is a normal crepe, pretty much. Doused in alcohol and set alight.

The Cherry thing (Cerises…something) was a goblet with iduno… Some pudding with cherries that have been drowned in alcohol with ice cream and chocolate fudge. So gooooooood. Drools. The cherries tasted amazing. I expected sour but they were so sweet.

The picture doesn’t do it enough justice… It was so gooood. Anyway, that’s all for now, soz for the photo edit inconsistency, I took some with pudding cam and some with normal iPhone cam.

(Korea) Day 3, Part 2: Lotte World Adventures

After visiting the Hello Kitty Cafe, we took the subway down to Jamsil station to visit Lotte World!  It’s the biggest indoor themepark or something like that, so easy to get to because it’s attached to the subway station; the station also has a lot of shops and a mall kind of thing.  It even had this massive fountain inside, ide.  Click/hover the images for descriptions, at the bottom.  And maybe a surprise story.

Oh yeah, all this time I forgot to mention how much of a freaking coupon queen I was during this trip, LOL.  Before the trip, I compiled a booklet of makeup, travel and activity coupons that I found on various places on the internet because I’m cray.  I’ll do a post on that really soon, and let you guys download the booklet in case you’re going to Korea any time soon, hahah.  But yeah, I had a Lotte World voucher inside, so we got a discount yay!

Anyway, to be honest I was a bit disappointed that the theme park was indoors because it was the first beautifully sunny day we had seen in Korea.  It was  pretty, but I didn’t think the indoor place was amazing.

(Korea) Day 3, Part 1: Hello Kitty Cafe

Posted on 29-08-2013 | Tags: , ,

I’ve been anticipating writing this post up- of course, it’s the Hello Kitty Cafe in Hongdae! Ever since I began researching for the Korea trip, I had been looking forward to the Hello Kitty cafe because like most girly asian girls… I’m pretty obsessed with Hello Kitty. And I know it’s super mainstream and absolutely overdone and overrated but I don’t care because I love it! HAhaha.  This will mostly be a picture post :3

The Cafe didn’t open until 11AM, so we headed out pretty late to check it out.  It wasn’t very far from where we stayed, and there’s no way you could miss it when you see it:
