She Owns the Night

The week that was:

  • Weekly coffee quota has increased to 3-4 cups a week as opposed to 1 cup a fortnight (haha I’m weak, shhh)
  • Stuffed face with food on Friday (what’s new), pad thai for lunch and chinese banquet for dinner. Food coma FML.
  • Mini photoshoot excursion after dins with KA
  • C is done with her studies – forever!! Yayersss
  • Caught up with C, J plus others for some pizza, a movie, singstar (Oh how much do I suck?) and a photo booth session.. HAHAHAHAH. ❤
  • Lofty on Sunday and managed to overtake 20+ people.. woooo~ time wise, I’ve plateaud on the 55min mark more or less. Oh well. 🙂
  • Ears have been binging on this:

far east movement, fm, free wired, kevnish, prohgress, jspliff, dj virman

  • And even though it was pay week, monies have disappeared on a GHD, food and gifts. Le sigh.
  • Am currently dramaing – Brilliant Legacy. It’s interesting, it’s stupid, it’s painfully slow, it’s intriguing, it’s nerve wracking, it’s lame… and even though it’s pretty sucky, why is it still so good? Damn you kdrama, you are the reason for my panda eyes at work and the frequent nanna naps on the bus to and from work. Damn you.

Happy Mon- Tuesday everyone! Who doesn’t love a long weekend! =D

Friday was spent lurking around the city and china town in search of some fooddddd. Sometimes with so many people, so little time and so many choices… a quick bite at a food court is satisfactory. Bibimbap was had which was my first bowl since returning back from Sydney! :)~

Saturday was Mt Lofty as will all Saturdays from hereon in will be if weather permits. Hiked that mountain in under one hour! 59 minutes to be exact… oh booyah! The rest of the day was spent with Nomi at her place and a quick stint in the city to exercise our wallets. Scored myself a pair of high waisted skinny black pants at Bardot for $40 down from $80! Score for me, not thy wallet. 😛 Clocked the night off with ‘Get Smart’ which was … meh.

Sunday proved to be more low key with two more movies – ‘The Princess and the Frog’ (good) and ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs’ (enjoyable). However C and I managed to squeeze in another visit to Mt. Lofty! This time I bet my PB and got up in 55 minutes, sweating like a hippo and all, but who cares! 🙂 Dinner was spent at Nomi’s with a binge fest on Personal Taste. Lee Min Ho is full of awesome I tell you! Im Seulong on the other hand… *major cringe*

Yesterday was spent with the Nghi-miester were adventures were had at Ikea and Harbour Town – Adelaide’s outdoor answer to Sydneys DFO. Surprisingly, we both got more excited with decorative objects, photo frames, prints, candles, furnishings and home/ kitchen utensils than we did at Harbour Town. LOL. Scored myself a green apple candle (YUM!) and a mini pot. So random.. haha!

Random junk on my shelf, including my apple scent candle and pot plant. I really need to invest in some photo frames and pack away my snoopies... lol

And then we come to today… which happens to be Tuesday, which means that Friday is one day closer than it was yesterday!

Gee

Blog post long over due.. LONGGGGG over due.

So as aforementioned honkie friend in previous post has gone back to hong kong and nothing much new has happened since then.

Oh, a few of the girls and I have taken the liberty to wake up early on Saturday mornings (*dies*) and tackle the great heights of Mt. Lofty to burn off as many calories as we can. Ha! Unfortunately, after reaching the summit and coming back down to the base, we always found ourselves at Bread Top commending and rewarding ourselves for our efforts. =P But, did you know that that’s the best time to eat junk food? Consuming junk straight after a work out while ones body is still burning fat… but even so, if I didn’t stuff myself with Bread Top, it’d burn the fat in my body that’s already there, and not the new junk I’m adding into my system! =( I know this, but will ignore it happily once I set foot into the gates of Bread Top.

Ohhh yeahhhh, us Adelaidians survived an earthquake on Friday night! Hahaha, quite surreal really. The first thing that ran through my mind as my room was swaying left to right: “I’m sure I’m not drunk tonight”… *pause* … more swaying ensues… “EARTHQUAKE!!!” And then updates on twitter and fb follows… just shows what I did on Friday night and how exciting my week was! =P

And I also managed to catch up on a handful of movies/ dramas/ shows:
•  Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang – meh
•  The Blind Side – win! But Sandra, please stay away from peroxide!
•  Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind – brain fart in progress.. watching this movie with a massive migraine was of no help! =(
•  Up – rewatched this with Nghi cause she hasn’t seen it… gahhh, how awesome is Russell?! Hhaha
•  500 Days of Summer – cute
•  Music and Lyrics – WTF… waste of time
•  PS I Love You – was ok, not a fan of Hilary Swank
•  Gossip Girl – Chuck… and the clothes… ahhhhh
•  ABDC Season 5 – was ok, am looking forward to watching the ABDC Championship stage with winners from all 5 seasons. Go Jabbawockeez and Quest Crew!
•  and have started on Personal Taste featuring the ever so suave and charming Lee Min Ho. Brb, swooning in progress. Ahhhh~ =) Not too fond of how thick and ditzy and dumb Son Ye Jin’s character is. Why must they make the female leads so… airy fairy dimwits. Sure, they get better through the series, but at least give them some balls at the beginning too!

Russell... live and in the flesh!

Russell... live and in the flesh!

On the shopping from, bought myself a Mimco bag and a Pixar dvd box set and spent oodles of monies on food. Gah… hanging for the next pay cheque now!

Upcoming long weekend!! BOOYA! What to do, where to go, who to see, what to eat, what to watch? Hrmsssss…

Deprivation

I feel like I’m abandoning my blog but I’m not. There’s just not many exciting rounds of anything lately.. until yesterday night. That, I guess is semi interesting. Will post about that later, however, in the mean time, let me feast your eyes on some…. icons!

Take these pics of Kim So Eun aka Ga Eul in BBF:

Open Up

Gah.. what a hectic Monday morning. Lots of work, lots of things to do, and lots of things to remember to do… Like what I was supposed to do over the weekend, my portfolio.. gah!!

Friday kicked off with dinner at Subway cause I gots a coupon… yay for coupon! 2 x 6″ subs, 2 x cookies and 2 x drinks for $9.95. I like it! We resorted to kdramas after that, huzzah! I played “Who Are You” for Nomz in hopes that she’ll catch on to it and enjoy it seeing that she gets bored easily and fell asleep in Que Sera Sera ep 1!! Success! I got her hooked! Time to dispell our obsession away from Mr. Goo Jun Pyo. Whilst Nomz is occupied in kdrama world, I turn into Baker wannabe and whip up some Banana Bread! Nhom nhom~

11 creeps around the corner and you know what time that is?! Coffee time! Or midnight snack time! Ha! A pity that most of the places down Stratty shut doors at 12 aside from very few limited places. We order a small serving of dukbokgi and knife cut noodle soup at Mr. Dduckbocki Miss. Kkochi… YUMMOZ!! Then head over to Cade Ca’D’Or and did the wise thing, NOT order soju but patbingsoo instead. Was pretty good, but I still like mine with cornflakes, always in need of that extra crunch and texture in my patbingsoo.. As always, I am TOTALLY STUFFED when I get home. Not a good or smart thing… and so we’ve concluded that Friday nights like these have. Got. To. STOP. REALLY.


Dukbokgi and Knife Cut Noodles.


Patbingsoo


My many facial expressions? Hahha nhom nhom~ KO!

Saturday was.. different! Much different and low key than all previous Saturdays! We start off with a brisk walk/jog down to Stratty, and I must say I am pretty impressed with myself! I jogged the whole entire way from our apartment to Stratty… well I had to stop at the lights ONCE, but I jogged the rest. *Insert big massive grin* That’s around 2km for ya!! Nomz joked that she should’ve walked back to our apartment, taken the car and then drive down The Boulevard looking for me, all the while sticking out her tongue and possibly honking! HAHAHAHHAHAH! I would’ve pissed myself laughing if she did that, forreals. Oh that funny one! We treat ourselves to lunch! YAY.. food.. hahah.

Hotpot goodies and Max Brenner


Hot mocha by the Bald Man in there uberly cute hug mugs!

We order 2 porridges (Pumpkin and Vegetarian) at Wara Wara since the Pumpkin porridge I had last time was such a hit. This time.. omg, they just totally butchered the Pumpkin porridge. BADLY. It was runny, sloshy and way too milky… you could even see the excessive amount of milk they used… Nomz hardly even touched it. BOO! On the other hand, my vegetarian porridge was pretty yummos ESPECIALLY accompanied with the raw squid kimchi side dish! OMGAH.. we loved it so much that we went to buy some for dinner and general home eating. mMmmm~ After porridge, we moved next door at CC’s Chargrill for hot chips! Hahah, like they say, it’s best to eat junk food after a workout cause that’s when your body burns off all that junk! With some minor grocery shopping done and major ahh-ing and ooh-ing over the korean side dishes in the grocers, we leg it back home cause we gots MORE grocery shopping to do, only this time, we’re taking Tsubi with us!

Ashfield was our destination and shop we did. Once we got home, I got into Top Chef mode.. hahaha! Prepping for dinner – hotpot and a kazillion side dishes to scoff down. YUM YUM! K came over for dinner that night and we just hung out, kdramaed Who Are You and BBF for Goo Jun Pyo! I dunnoz how we did it, but we did. We squeezed in some cheesecake (courtesy of K – THANKS!) and sesame ice cream AND even managed to go to Max Brenners for Hot Dark Chocolates and a Hot Mocha! The place was packed, as always, lines were long and just really really slow service. GAH! Nomz and K got their beverages after a 20-30 minute wait whilst I was still waiting for mine.. HMPHS! We ask the waiter about my drink and he goes off and chases it up for us.. and then… that’s when it started to make sense! They charged Nomz $12bucks for “3 drinks”… right.. Nomz pulls out the docket and what do we have here…. the dude punched in 2 drinks! Not 3! So mine doesn’t exist. HAHAHAH!! OOPS! About 10 minutes later, the waiter came out with MY hot dark chocolate with crispy waffle balls…….. hahahha, thanks and sorry dude! I enjoyed it though. =D Had an awesome dinner, thanks K for your kit, feeding my inner carnivore instincts, cheesecake and veggies. Hope you had fun. Thanks Nomi for washing up and driving and eating.. I loves it when you eat! LOVE YOU! Saranghae! Pwahahha!

The best thing about Sunday? WE DIDN’T EAT OUT! We went to play sports instead! With the intention of cycling we head out to Sydney Olympic Park and get lost and confused as to where to hire bikes. Sucked really, cause when we found out where, it was getting too late and there were absolutely no empty car park! Next option? Possibly golf? Hit some balls? EH. Tennis? Get some rallies happening? AHAHAHHAHA, yes…. rallies. We get a court at 5 for an hour and try to hit some balls. We have concluded that we just suck and should stick to something we know.. like cycling, or walking, or running, or sitting on our butts kdrama-ing. Yeah, I like that one.
