Exams are overrrrrrrr~~~!! It was my toughest semester yet and I am glad it is over and done with! These weightless shoulders sure feels good!
Anyways, I promised to be back after my exams and catch up on my backlogs. I have been accumulating backlogs... :X I'll try to get to all of it in these two weeks lah ok.. I get so tired whenever I do long posts so I keep pushing it off and procrastinate. So maybe I'll break it up into a few little shorter posts alright? :)
Ok.. where shall I start with? Hmmm... Attended my first concert in Melbourne! That dated exactly 2 months ago... Better late than never posting it up I suppose :P
Whenever I look at the stats of my posts archive and how my rate of publishing is decreasing tremendously, I feel sad-ish but yet, at that point of time it didn't motivate me to keep up with the posting. The past semester has just been too crazy to spend my free time editing pictures and writing a long post of how the good things have been. As much as I miss writing down my life stories (altho they are mainly food stories) to ease my stress, but I love me some sleep and chilling and lazing more HEHE
These backlogs posts are just going to be about the outings I had and some kitchen experiments. Boring days that are uni related are not required to be written about.
Anyways, back to the concert I attended. It was Eason Chan's! I ain't that big of a fan but since Wei Nian asked dear and dear said ok, so I just tagged along :D
Overall the concert was pretty good. One thing for sure, Eason is such a great singer! His live singing sounds exactly like what you hear not live. Like seriously one! And altho, the whole night I think I only knew five songs he sang, but I still enjoyed it! :) And he is such a funny guy! The way he talks and entertained the crowd, he seems like a genuinely nice artist.
The concert ended nicely around 11pm.
Next, potluck party @ the boyfriend's friend's house.
For the rest of the night, we played mahjong and had a karaoke session! This house of theirs has like a karaoke machine so everyone basically just kept singing and singing. It was a potluck plus cheung k party man!
p/s: Sorry that all the photos at the potluck turned out so yellow and green! It was seriously not a very good lighting to be taking nice pictures of. Or maybe I should have played around with my white balance..
Next outing was with the S9s! Initial plan was to go to The Grain store for brunch but since we did not make any reservation(I know right.... since when do brunch places do reservations....), we couldn't get in. So we headed over to Degraves street instead and entered any random cafe that could sit 8 people.
Food wasn't great lah to be honest. It was more like a makan together session. But since we couldn't really chit chat much because we were seated in two separate tables, we went for bubble tea after brunch and just sat there for like an hour plus catching up about whatever. And then after that we all headed back home. And that was before 1pm I think?
En Lin was in Melbourne and of course whenever someone in the close circle of friends comes here, it is a must to meetup. And I obviously was the one who decides on where shall we go for food and this time, I chose Maccaroni Trattoria Italiana!
I've heard so much about how affordable this place is and how it serves yummy authentic Italian food! Plus when Steph was here, she went there too and she told me it was good! So of course, must go and try!
The meal was niceeee!! The food tasted great but I don't think it is the kind of restaurant that you want to go with a bunch of guys because the food portion is quite small. These 3 guys that I was with wasn't filled up after this meal. Hahaha! But for me, it was just nice! And I seriously loved how everything tasted so subtly yummy and authentic!
Next stop after dinner was for cakes @ Brunetti on City Square.
And that's it for this post! All of this happened before Venus Bay and I thought I'll just break it up here. Because next will be a post solely on Adriano Zumbo in Melbourne and after that another continuation of backlogs until right now.
You should probably be seeing at least 2 more updates by next week! :)
Now that I am exam free, I have even more free time to catch up on these posts. And especially because I hardly have much friends left here for me to go out on outings with as regularly as I did last time after my exams.
So now all I do all day is literally lazing around. Watching series, eat and sleep. Now that I am at the boyfriend's for a week, added another one more thing to do, which is to annoy him. Muahahaha!
Wokays, I shall be back soon!
