Hello hello folks!
Sorry for not updating for a while, I was relatively busy with keeping busy, going out heaps with buddies, family and also traveling the Penang-Ipoh-KL routes several times back and forth.
One of those journeys in the car
Today will be a quick post. My laptop ran outta juice and I've left the charger somewhere in Penang.
Will blog a proper one soon; am using someone else's laptop now.
Anyway, here's what I've been up to for the past week!
Bid farewell to the other half and sent him off.
He'll be back in Australia for two months!
Had dinner at Pasta Zanmai with buddy Vincent
Highly recommended: Unagi Roll, Smoked Salmon Pizza
& Teriyaki Chicken Spaghetti
My Mr.BFF – Buddy Vincent and I!
9 years of friendship & counting
It was nightfall. I soon set off to GEO's cafe in Sri Hartamas for a hang out and catch-up session with my Aussiemate, Aaron.
He was down in Malaysia for a week!
Shisha take one!
Shisha take two!
My kakis for the night
T'was a splendid session! We had various conversations about almost everything under the sun.
Learnt so much especially about our different and highly contradicting perspectives. We ended it with more karaoke and chats thereafter.
Spotted an epic Superman bike one afternoon
On the road again!
This fortnight's simple nail art I did
(Why does my hand look so wrinkly in this photo OMG!)
Arrived my folk's place in Ipoh!
Remember Penny? Say hi!
Salmon Sashimi at Sushi King with the family
Did some work over a cuppa Cafe Mocha at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf!
Had dinner with Mr. BFF at one of my fave European dining spots ever-
at Indulgence Restaurant & Living!
We had chicken and two pots of tea before heading out for the night.
I didn't have the time for an OOTD shot so this will have to do!
Beer towers of Strongbow Cider!
The night ensued at Bricks & Barrels Gastrobar and Beer Garden, Ipoh with the rest.
It was a memorable night of friendship, reminiscence, drinkies, truth or dare and silly challenges. We made the most of that night like we're gonna die young.
(Yes, I know it's a Kesha song)
My flaming shot – Chocolate Fire! A superb mix of Kahlua, Baileys & Rum
Take my hand, I'll show you the wild side
The morning after felt like my head traversed into an epic wreckage.
Ahhh… hangovers. How I miss thee.
That didn't stop me from making a trip back to Penang later that day.
But going back means having to be apart from my babyChivas (My father, being the only person in the whole world who doesn't like babyChivas)
So I bid adieu to my babyboy. Mr.BFF took over & babysat him while I was away!
Thank you so much!
Being back in Penang, I was able to catch my Aussiemate Carly who was down for her honeymoon.
Just being girls at Austin Chase @ Queensbay Mall
Our afternoon of catching up over food, shopping, coffee, gossip, taking photos, long conversations were plenty fun!
So glad we managed to catch each other this trip.
Oh by the way, since I'm always posting decent photos of myself, here's an ugly photo to balance the ratio up a little LOLOL
So candid! I reckon I was expressing my disgust at something.
Found that picture so unglam yet hilarious at the same time haha!
Headed back home for some kick-ass sessions at the gym
Just part of today's routine, among others
My following week will be spent in Penang, leading up to Chinese New Year.
Being back made me realize how much I miss being in the comfort of my own home I grew up in. Being with the family, having regular home-cooked meals, not having to do my own laundry nor dishes, not having to pay rent.
But on the plus side, I appreciate the freedom and independence that comes with living away from home. I guess you can't have the best of both worlds, huh.
By the end of the week, Mr.BFF came over to Penang and brought me back my son!
Reunited with my boy again made me so happy.
I hope your god daddy has been treating you well!
Here's my current earworm that I relate very well to. Love the music video the most!
Song of the week:
NERVO & Hook N Sling – Reason
Here's wishing you a great seven days ahead!
More to come soon, once I get my laptop charger back
