Tori Mayo coma

What is wrong with me as of late? Have I got a dark cloud looming over my head? I think so! Dark clumsy forgetful cloud, that’s what it is… and it won’t stop raining on me. Hmphs.

Had a quiet weekend and caught up with the girls on Friday night for some dessert. I present to you, Kinder Surprise dessert pizza.. oh nom nom nom.

This was my dinner due to stuffing my face with this: during lunch AND to top that off, finished it with a bubble tea… so dinner had to be small. Sweet but small. 🙂

Tori mayo! Nomnomnom on Twitpic
This is so freaking good, how did I not discover this sooner?! :)~~

Unfortunately, on the way to cafe Fellini, it took me a whopping 20 minutes to find a freaking carpark… grss and whilst making the hike (not quite a hike, but a fair walk) to the cafe, dun dun dun! It poured on me… I FORGOT MY WALLET AND MONIES. ukfvndkajfnak! What luck! Hahahah, so thanks for spotting me girls. My shout next outing. Bleh.

Lets’ fast forward to today.. this morning. I’m deep in sleep, it’s still too early to get up… but I hear:

*Smooch smooch muah* “I love you” in a baby voice… COUNTLESS TIMES. I’m thinking.. am I dreaming? Or is something really making this noise?! So by now, I’m awake trying to figure out if I was indeed, really dreaming or it’s coming from somewhere in my room. What felt like a long 3 minutes, I hear nothing. It must be a dream… a weird one. But then….

*Smooch smooch muah* “I love you”

What the frick?! It’s coming from one of my keyring toys that’s 9 years old, and might I add, the battery died YEARS ago. WTHEFRICK?! New alarm? Huh?! Battery decides to rejuvenate itself after years of hibernation? Is that it? kdhnfkajdnakjga! BOOOO.. I get up, get the toy and discard it in the room next door and proceed to head back to sleep… no point really cause my alarm goes off in 5 minutes anyhoos. BLAH. Why do this to me? Haahah

I tried squeezing it’s stomach after I got home from work today, but what do you know, the battery’s dead!

Oh hey, we’re in our last month for the first half of the year… Almost 6 months in already. Time, slow down will ya!

And finally, FIFA world cup anyone? Oh hohoho 🙂



Oh mwahahaha!

If you follow me on tumblr, twitter and/ or fb, you may have heard the news. I am OFFICIALLY jobbed as a web designer/ developer! PSYCH! Now, time to build up some leave for a much needed holiday! Hahahah My first day will kick off on Monday next week, am looking forward to it… so for now, I’m going to make the most of staying out in the city during lunch and brief shopping trips. 🙂

I must say I had a really great weekend. Hiked as per usual with an extra attendee this time around, who might I add was extremely impressive with no breaks; and he was just a minute behind me! IMPRESSIVE.

Caught up with my girl Phuong and Nghi for brunch listening to Phuong’s adventure in Europe… which only makes me want to go NOW. NOW NOW NOW. I’m like a kid throwing a tantrum cause she wants to go O/S! Hahahha.. all in due time I suppose. 🙂

Brunch at ETC, soft poached eggs… nom nom nom~

Spent a shit load of money on clothes over the weekend – literally a shopping spree online AND offline. 2 x shoes, 3 x tops, 2 x skirts and a dress… and there’s still 18 items on my eBay watch list! Missed out on a few items… but maybe it’s a good thing for my poor wallet. Le sigh.

Made steak with C and J yesterday, spoilt ourselves with a bottle of Rosemount O and topped it off with a rainbow paddlepop. Oh booya! Finished the arvo off with a marathon of Greys’ Anatomy and my gosh, what a season finale. A bit.. WTF – in terms of a stupid SWAT team but nevertheless, great episodeeee! Avery, you are fine!

Hope this week flies by for everyone!


Fill this night

Headed down to the Sass and Bide warehouse sale after work on Friday which was quite the disappointment however, that means that I get to save my monies for other things… say for instance… foooood! We headed to British India – The Thali Room for dinner; I have heard great things about this place so I was very much looking forward to it!

The Thali platter is India’s answer to the Japanese bento box:

Shimla Thali

Shila Thai (tikka masala): chicken tikka masala, vegetable curry, dahl, tikka masala salad, mango chutney, naan and saffron rice.

Yes, it tastes as good as it looks! I can’t believe I caned the whole platter. Food coma to the maximum. FML.

Thankfully I did work off as much as I could on my hike the following morning. 🙂

And finished the weekend off with brunch at Queen Street Cafe with my favourite L’s, whereby I discovered one of the best coffee’s I’ve had in Adelaide to date! LOVE ❤
