Wowzer, we’ve been here for a year! Time flies… Anyway, highlights of last week:
14 Feb, Tuesday
Q turned 20! So big liao, my little sister… For some reason, Skype connection was bad on that night, but hehe, at least she’s happy with all the love that she received 🙂
Note: Dad was sitting near the laptop, and was out of frame. But he’s there!
16 Feb, Friday
Finally, it actually shined on the day T and I planned to cycle!
We first had brunch at Long Story Short. Food looked pretty, but the taste was not so fantastic. Heh. Then we made our way down to Port Melbourne Beach to rent the blue Melbourne bicycles. But lo and behold, there weren’t any helmets. So we walked another 15 minutes to the next Melbourne Bike Share station and fortunately, there were some! We got ourselves a couple and rode all the way to Saint Kilda 😀
Later on, we sat at Matcha Mylkbar and got majorly disappointed with the bland taste of the drinks we ordered (matcha latte and chai latte), and after waiting for almost half hour, we got disappointed again with the “best” sweet potato fries. Heh.
After freshening up in the evening, we made our way to East Imperial for dinner. We had a banquet set of $30 per pax, and the spread was amazingly delicious and so filling! It totally made up for the mediocre food we had for brunch and tea. And of course, it was a beautiful way to mark our one year stay in Melbourne 🙂
17 Feb, Saturday
Had these friends over for a night of games… Wi came earlier too, but she left before the games started as she had dinner plans. We caught a movie, ‘The Raid: Redemption’, over dinner and the girls squealed every now and then, as gore scenes flashed. I’ve watched this movie 3 times already, and still get all squirmy! And then, we played the different games till 2AM, just because 😛
18 Feb, Sunday
Sunday was so super buruk nak mampus for T and me. We pulled our mattress out to the living room and watched ‘Homeland’ the entire day. And when the season was done, we watched ‘The Founder’. Watching the characters eat McD burgers made us wanna eat McD’s double cheese, so we ordered the value meals for supper. The burgers were divine and the fries were yums! The order came at 10.45pm, and heh, a couple of hours later, we were in bed (in front of the TV). Heh. Heh.
