  1. #100happydays Part III.

    Thursday, June 26, 2014

    Hey y'all!

    OMG it feels like forever since I last blogged. Have always had the thought of blogging at the back of my mind but just somehow never have the time to or just procrastinate on days where I just don't want to do anything. Exams are over but I still have a submission due on the 8th.... =/

    Anyways, I am back to blog about on #100happydays which ended about a month ago. And I was only up until Day 40 in the last post? Here is Part I and Part II if any of you missed it :D I doubt I'll get into the rest of the days today in this post but maybe onto the 65th or 70th mark? We shall see how this turns out :P

    So here goes!

    Day 41
    Day 41// Our short term guest for the day, Dickson! Dinnered and coffee break with these two boys tonight  It's awesome seeing a close friend fulfilled one of his biggest dream career and because of that, he gets to fly over for visits! Even tho his stay is like super short, it's still nice to see a friendly face in a foreign land 

    The day started off by me hopping onto a bus to Airport West to meet up with Dickson. He had just flew in that morning itself and Airport West is only a 10 minutes bus ride from my house. So yeaps..

    Then we hopped onto the tram and headed down to the city because we were meeting Jia Shen for dinner that night as well. The city can be really boring when you're just walking aimlessly around and have nothing to do in mind. It wasn't Dickson's first visit so he didn't have anywhere he wanted to go. Plus I wasn't in that mood of being a tour guide and take him to touristy places and not like he wanted to do the touristy thing anyways...

    So instead, we went to Dessert Story and just sat there and chilled. 

    Have no idea what drink is this.. All I know, it was Dickson's treat! HAHAH!

    We talked and caught up about whatever that was happening and stuffs until it was more or less time for our early dinner at 6pm I think? Met Jia Shen halfway because we were heading to Huxtaburger (the CBD branch) for dinner.

    I personally wanted to take Dickson to eat a good meal but didn't want to think too much into it. And the burgers in Melbourne are pretty good anyways plus he is a burger fan. So Huxta it was! I still do reckon that it is one of the best burger joints around town!

    Both of them ordered the same thing. But.... I can't remember what it was HAHA! 

    And I ordered their mini burger because I was still full from the drink earlier. So all  did was add an egg into my mini burger and it was complete! I LOVE the brioche bun at Huxtaburger man! SO GOOD! Well..., the burger is very good as a whole too!

    But I think the CBD branch isn't the place to go tho.. It is too tiny and more like a takeaway place rather than sitting there and have a meal. Because all they have is bar tops and could sit 15 people max! Too small! Yes, their burgers are really good, but I also do like a good sitting spot to enjoy my meal with my friends. Not just sitting on the bar top alone and enjoy the meal alone...

    Then after dinner we went for coffee. Jia Shen and his coffee fixes.. So we end up at Sensory Lab for a cuppa.

    My mocha, heavier on the chocolate :D

    Dickson didn't even coffee. He had a hot chocolate. It was basically another catch up session for him. Because he hasn't seen Jia Shen in a long time. And talking about Dickson's piloting job more than half of the time :D

    It was a good catch up session! After drinks, we all just went separate ways and headed home. I headed back to Clayton and the whole day I actually had quite some things with me (laptop, clothes, etc.) but Dickson was so nice to actually help me carry my laptop in his bag the whole entire time while we were out together! I sure do have really nice friends :D

    Phew..., that was a month's worth of update! Let's just leave it off here for now... Ok?

    Now that I am slightly freer, I SHOULD be back a little more often? I still have a couple of food reviews to get to, the continuation of "when my mum was here" posts and lastly my most recent Sydney trip :D 

    I am more determined to keep this space more alive because I know for a fact that when I do get into the corporate world, I would be neglecting this space completely. So I need to keep writing until I can't because I don't have the time to anymore..

    *Fingers crossed!* It would work out the way I want it to :D Bye for now! I'll be back soon!

    Lots of love,

    Huxtaburger on Urbanspoon
