Do What I Want

Continuing from previous postings:

  • We head back to the hotel albeit getting dodgy crap cab drivers at 2 in the am
  • A pair of us make our way downstairs to Pie Face and 7 Eleven to grab a late night feed: mini pies and ramen at 3 in the am for the win! =)~
  • With very little sleep, half of us have brekky at a nearby cafe whilst the others pack up and check out

    Latte, ciabatta with basil pesto, ricotta, tomato, rocket and balsamic vinegar; tuna salad
  • We all then head to the State Library, hire out lockers and dump our shit in. Heh
  • Lots of walking, lots of shopping and lots of snacking

    Green tea frappe ❀

  • Barely made it through the day at work with workmates questioning my nights shenanigans – no I am not hung over… just super super tired from a crazy ass week!
  • Saturday – early morning training sesh, dinner with the girls at Jah’z Lounge (meh), stupid cockroach incident, and 3 hour karaoke sesh at Bacchu’s – good times girls. GOOD FREAKING TIMES – feeling so fly like a G6~

Managed another solo hike on Saturday, the first in 3 weeks and boy, did it hurt or what? Felt damn good once I hit the top though (as always), and all that pain endured to get there just… dissipates. πŸ™‚

Celebrated my long time childhood friends’ birthday over the weekend, my darling P is now a ripe ol’ age of 23! Mwahaha… I’ve known this girl since we were in tracky dacks at Vietnamese school… give it a few more years and I would have clocked up a whopping 20 years of knowing her! Much love to my wonderful peaches#2, much laughter and good times in another 23 years to come. ❀

Also managed to squeeze in a quick lunch and shopping date with my HS mates. Had a splendid time and in the process, picked up a khaki military jacket similar to what the SNSD girls wear during their Genie promotions for a whopping $25 from $80. BAZINGER!

Sucks that I’m left with $5.00 in my wallet now. True story.

OH, this upcoming Sunday is the City to Bay fun run peoples! Yes, I will be running, walking and crawling the whole 12km from the city straight down to the bay. Someone, please wait for me at the line with a cold bottle of beer? Yes? Looking forward to Sunday (weather, please be good) but Monday will be a bitch. I have no idea how I’m going to drag myself out of bed to get to work on time cause I’m going to feel like I’ve been put the wringer and beaten down to a pulp. But hey, all for a good cause right? πŸ˜› Donations are still more than welcome, head over to to make a donation. Any amount is appreciated!

AND AND, anyone catching the USO? Rafa and his damn sexy hair vs Nole and his OTT support crew mens final is postponed til tomorrow due to stupid rain. USO, time to get a roof like the AO dontchathink? Get with the times yo! πŸ˜› And that also means, after the finals, Nole jumps to world no. 2 and Fed down to world no. 3.. BLASPHEMY I TELL YOU. BLASPHEMY!

I’ll be seeing you in January ! Bazinger.

HAHAHA, so I temporarily played model at work for a shopping centre brochure and it finally got printed. Heh, interesting stint… LOL.
