I meant to update because quite a few interesting things happened but I’m just so lazy!!! My list of to-read books is forever growing, plus I started journaling again (putting all the cute notebooks I’m hoarding to good use). It’s something I used to do in class all the time during my triple science and double math lessons cos I hate them all.

Most days are good days but today feels like a wonderful day!! 🌞

The night before, I tucked myself into bed at 9pm, watched 2 episodes of Meteor Garden 2018 and slept at 10.30pm. The night owl in me is very proud of myself. I usually don’t sleep so early but I had to do an interview at 7.30am today and I was afraid of being late.

Interview went pretty well and you can say I sort of Stomped myself hahaha:

PR and all but I was damn self-conscious about having my photo online because we all know the Internet can be a cruel place. And my self-esteem is super fragile lol I must have bugged Farah a dozen times for her opinion on which pic looked the least awkward etc.

Honestly not my best photo but I shall not focus on my flaws. It’s true that you are your own worst critic because I was worried about the comments but they were all positive ones (so far). And some weren’t just about the story 😳😳😳

Thank you for putting a smile on my face. I do feel quite happy and flattered and I appreciate it!

If we were still on speaking terms, you would be the first person I would have shown these screenshots to, because that’s what I always did, but we are not, so here’s me blogging about it instead but whatever 🤷

After the interview, Farah and I left the school and I feel like the day just kept getting better:

  • Decided to save money and take the bus, which came in a minute
  • Went to our beloved McDonald’s for iced lattes and breakfast!! Omg so good
  • Online flash sales everywhere when we reached office so of course we had to shop and buy something 😂
  • Got to leave early after finishing our work!

Went to walk around Northpoint and I bought stuff AGAIN LOL… Mostly food for my family and a skincare set from Guardian for my mum. And treats for my hamsters!!! On the bright side, I managed to stay away from the library.

These are just treats and it added up to like $35… Maybe it’s guilt for not playing with them last night cos I wanted to sleep early. But it was just ONE night!! I play with them and do cleaning almost every night.

I think I’m obsessed with my hamsters??? But they are so freaking cute!!! 😍 Some days I smother the eldest one with 20 kisses in a row and once I read him a page from my book while he was on my bed. I cannot imagine what it would be like if I have a human child.

Another reason to be happy today was because a book that I bought online arrived today:

I think it’s a good deal because Book Depository sells it for almost $30 but I got it for $19 hehehe. And ya this is why my to-read list keeps growing.

Ok I’m gonna abuse Netflix now. Yippee!!!

Being a pig @ Tanuki Raw

Had a very good lunch at Tanuki Raw today (July 21) and just wanted to post food photos. I realised it’s been quite awhile since I even took proper food pictures and all I seem to Instagram are my hugeass mala bowls (and ootds) ?

Actually I wanted to eat Genki Sushi but the queue was sooo looong even though it was approaching 2pm. Went to Tanuki instead and it’s one my favourite places to eat at because the food + view (if you get the right seats) is always on point.

Truffle Yakiniku Don with Foie Gras

If heaven was a dish, it would be this Truffle Yakiniku Don with Foie Gras. It’s hands down the best item on their menu (to me anyway) and I ALWAYS order this no matter times I come ?

Kaisen Chirashi Don

The Kaisen Chirashi Don to satisfy my raw fish craving… So so so good. Clearly I don’t have a phobia despite my week-long MC after eating chirashi at stupid Sushiro ?

Spam Wham Fries

Spam Wham Fries! Topped with guacamole, umami cheese, black garlic brown butter gravy, onions and sour cream. I’ve never seen such thick fries but it’s damn legit and filled with meat and oh so yum. Freaking filling too. SIN IN A TIN ?

Tanuki Balls

Also had Tanuki Balls which were two giant balls of unagi, snow crab, tamago, mushrooms and cabbage etc. It’s quite expensive because the dish is $19.80 which means one ball is close to $10 but the rich filling makes it worth it.

Ate a lot the whole of today but I’m very happy and satisfied and letting myself live after all my hard work and running and whatnot. Anyway, been very lazy to update because I am obsessed with my hamsters (I have 3 again lol) and books.

Plus I’ve been watching the new Meteor Garden which makes me feel like re-reading the manga. But damn it, when will I get Game of Thrones again?
