Night out at YoYo

I honestly wasn’t originally going to post about this night but I was telling C about my night and she found this pretty hilarious and a good story to share so I’m going to write about what happened. Also it’ll be a good story to read about when I’m older ha ha.

On a Saturday night I went to Yoyo with some friends and we managed to get a table to sit and drink, which was good because all I wanted to do was to sit and drink and not meet anyone new or talk to anyone I didn’t know. I honestly hadn’t cause up with my friend in a while and I wanted to catch up with her so that’s why.

Throughout the night there were a couple of guys that had hit on me but there was one guy in particular that was pretty persistent. Anyway, this guy came up to me while I was sitting at the table with my friends and he sat down next to me, much to my dismay. (Remember, all I wanted to do that night was talk to my cousin and drink, not meet anyone new.)

Call me a bitch but when he sat down I rejected him straight away. I told him that seat was taken to avoid talking to him but he didn’t realise I wasnt interested and instead he goes, “oh but c’mon I just want to have a chat” so obviously I let him take the seat and let him talk. When we did it honestly felt like a god damn interrogation, but that was because I didn’t ask him the question back as in I wasn’t like “how about you?”. After a while he got bored and left, and I must add in here that I gave him a fake phone number when he asked for my number. I told K this and I swear she subtly implied that I made a bitchy move. Eh.

Anyway not long after he left he came back and wanted to talk some more so naturally I let him even though I couldn’t be bothered/didn’t have the energy to converse. He asks me what I want to talk about but I couldn’t think up of a topic so I pointed out the fact he’s the one who wanted to talk and therefore he should be the one leading the conversation. He goes, “good point, what do you like to do in your spare time?”

I was literally like “stuff” and he probably thought I was some bitchy-ass bimbo. After that the conversation died for a bit and he turned his head away from me then turned back to me and he smiled. And then that was the funny thing that happened. The moment of the story that C found so funny she continued to make jokes about this moment for the rest of the night.

He drooled.

Yes he smiled at me and then drooled. After that he let out a laugh which came off somehow quite creepy but at the same time made me laugh my ass off.

After that he walked off and didn’t speak to me for the rest of the night.

Wicked: The Musical

Last night I went out and saw Wicked: The Musical. I went with my good friend, G, and we met up with her at Glenny station and had an early dinner chow down before hopping onto the train to head off to the city. We met up pretty early and therefore got there quite early (even though a bunch of trains were cancelled for some unknown reason), and early means, about two hours or so before the show was due to start. We bumped into A on the train and trained with her until she had to hop off at MC, then G and I ended up getting off at Southern Cross and decided to go down to Docklands and watch the Winter Fireworks, since it was a free viewing and a way of killing time.

When we got there it the sun was about a set and not a whole lot of people were there yet, so we got a good view – as in we were in the first line of viewing. I ended up taking a panorama since it was really pretty. The iPhone never does sceneries justice unfortunately.

It wasn’t until about 7PM when the fireworks started, so we were chilling at Docklands for about a good half an hour before the fireworks show started. It went for about 10 minutes so I took a crap load of photos, but here are some nice ones I got during the event.

After that we took a tram down to Collins Street to get to the Regent Theatre. I swear if I ever shop at Collins Street since it’s all the top designer brands on that street, I’ll actually feel so proud of myself lol. Anyway, when we arrived at Regent Theatre everyone was entering in already so it was perfect timing. I decided to buy a merch shirt since I want to make it a thing when I go to concerts/musicals etc. – like I have to buy a souvenir from there no matter what. I ended up purchasing the black shirt with the well-known Wicked photo on the front of promotional posters with the two main characters. Anyway we got seated and this was what the stage looked like.

The show soon started and safe to say I was amazed at the entire performance. I absolutely loved the musical. Seeing it live in comparison to watching it on YouTube or just listening to the soundtrack alone was just so different and so much better. Spending money on experiences than clothes that night was certainly the right choice, because by the end of the night I was giving them a standing ovation. So yes, safe to say I loved the musical. I kinda honestly didn’t want it to end either.

 

The City Life

On Sunday evening after work I made my way over to my cousin’s apartment to spend time/catch up with her. I took the train from Glen Waverley and the took the tram down to my cousin’s place but as soon as I got off the tram my cousin texted me to go to MC. Since I wasn’t there anymore I met her at Bilo instead which was much closer and made our way to MC and then back to her apartment.

We then changed into our bikini and made our way to the spa/sauna room/steam room. We first jumped into the spa and talked for a couple of hours since there were heaps of things to talk about. Then we decided to go into the sauna and steam room before going into the pool, but once that got too cold we ended up going back to my cousin’s apartment.

Pool and spa

After we showered and got changed we had dinner and watched the movie, George of the Jungle, before calling it a night.

The next morning we decided to go for brunch in Fitroy. Dodgy place but very indie looking place. We originally wanted to go to this burger place but they weren’t open until 5PM so instead we went to this place called Slowpoke. It’s this indie looking place with those “Frankie” magazines. Anyway here’s a picture to the entrance of the courtyard of Slowpoke.

Indie brunch place

The place pretty much only served sandwiches, which was delicious when my place came. I ordered a smashed egg with herbs (it was delicious) and my cousin ordered a chicken herbed sandwich. I tried a chicken piece of her and the chicken was pretty good.

Brunch food, Slowpoke

After brunch we walked around since I’d never been to Fitzroy before. We came to this shop which, specialised in paper. The place was pretty awesome even though it was pretty much just paper in the store. Here’s a picture of the place and there’s a selfie in here somewhere lol.

Zetta Florence

When we were finished at the paper store we made our way to Carlton Gardens which was so gorgeous, as shown below. Actually phone quality is never the same as real life quality.

Carlton Gardens

We got back to my cousin’s apartment since it was heating up and we didn’t want to walk around in the sun. So instead we stayed inside her apartment and watched the good bits from Frozen, and also planned where to go for a snack. I suggest Zumbo since both of us had never been there before, and since her sister’s boyfriend was over, we invited him to join us since he had never been there before either. Once Frozen finished, we got changed to go out and took a train to Zumbo. And lol at the asian girl in my pic heh, ruining my photo D<

We eventually chose our orders and while we were there I bumped into V which I hadn’t seen in a long time. Anyway the cakes we went with were, Chocolate, Chocoalte Orange and Strawberry (which is what I ordered). I loved the strawberry cake and it wasn’t too sweet either. The size of the cake were good for a snack size, however $8 per cake, isn’t worth it. It is a good place to go if you haven’t been there before.

After that we made our way back to the apartment and watched Running Man before heading off to dinner. We decided to go to this Italian place where they make their food from scratch. I forgot where it was exactly and what the place was called but it was really good. The spaghetti that I ordered was absolutely delicious. Would eat it again, then afterwards I took the train back home.

The Double Date Thief

On Wednesday I met up with G and booked tickets to see The Book Thief. I’d heard positive things about this movie from another friend so I was actually expecting quite a lot from this movie, with the only knowledge that the movie was based off a book about a girl who steals books (as suggested by the title). Bottom line, I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I stepped into the cinemas.

About 10/15 minutes into the movie, the projector actually screwed up and cut off, causing the big viewing screen to go black, but a couple minutes later an usher came into the cinema and told us there was something wrong with the projector and it’ll take a couple minutes to fix it, and that’s when I spotted little petite J with P. They ended up moving over next to where we were sitting, and they told us they’d literally arrived, just before the movie cut off.

J was kind enough to offer us staff discounted food from the Candy Bar, but before we could decide on what to eat, the movie was up and running again. When the movie was playing, I actually quite enjoyed how the movie kept on going and never slowed down. Event after event, I never thought one of the scenes were dull, and were in fact heart-warming or depressing. Towards the end of the movie I almost shed a tear, but I forced myself not to haha but it is sad and emotional but it is a pretty good movie. However, one character that annoyed me most was Rudy. I certainly did not like how he was so nosy and always clinging onto Leisel and just always there, omg. As quoted from Leisel, “he’s a pain in the neck”.

When the movie ended, G, J, P and I all decided to have dinner together, and thought we should dine at Straits of Malacca. G ended up ordering Fried Chicken Drumsticks, P order Chicken Rice, J order the Curry Laksa and I went with the Prawn Noodle Soup.

Say Hello to our food and a blurry faced J, lol

When everyone finished eating, J was still eating her dinner, and decided she would finish everyone’s left overs. She ended up eating P’s chicken, some of G’s fried chicken and drank the soup of my prawn noodles, while continuing to eat the curry laksa she ordered.

Dinner with my does

Saturday night I went out for an afternoon snack, dinner and dessert. I met up with G in the afternoon where we just sat in a cafe ate and talked about whatever until we decided we’d walk off the cake and macarons. Here’s a picture of the macarons by the way ft. G’s New York Cheesecake. They were pretty nice.

We decided to walk to a park close to GW and hop onto the swings. I swear we were going to get sunburnt while we were there.

About 5:30 we walked back to GL and sat at the numbers in Village. We were talking for a while until one of our friends (DK) walked passed by. We chatted for a while until he had to go meet his friends, and not long after V turned up and we had dinner at Kimchi Hut. The food there was okay, each time I’ve been there, the experience was alright, nothing special, but I suppose they go there for their hot pot since a lot of customers were eating off the portable stove.

After dinner we walked to GWSC and then to the new car park since V has never been to the top. There were some really pretty views from some of the sides, so it’s pretty nice there.

Not long after we went for some dessert and split the banana split with fudge and oh my god, that plate is a plate of delight it’s soooo good! I swear the three of us nommed it down in like10-15 mins lol.

After that we spent the night talking until we had to go home. Also, here’s a photo of me at the park!

Kitchen Workshop

On Monday I went to Kitchen Workshop with G. I’ve already been there about two times already. The first time was on a weekday so the rate was cheaper, except I didn’t pay. The second time was on a weekend and the rate was a lot higher because they served seafood, but the seafood isn’t worth it.

I was quite hungry when we arrived at Kitchen Workshop since I hadn’t eaten anything beforehand, and when we got there was only a short line, and thank god we got there when we did because afterwards, there was a massive line.

I remember I had about two rounds before going to dessert. There were lots of foods, like salads, lamb, pork, chicken, and western and eastern foods too. There was even like Hokkien noodles, lol, so it’s worth because of the variety of foods they have there. I actually find this buffet is a lot more worth than the China Bar buffet to be honest since it’s a lot cheaper than China Bar, even though Kitchen Workshop may be average buffet. But who cares, it’s food.

Dessert is the best part of any meal. The chocolate mouse was delicious and same with the mango pudding. The cheesecakes were alright but the mud cake tasted slightly too dry for my liking.

Cloudy With a Chance of Beach

Today I went to watch a movie with JT, and as suggested by the title of this post, it was Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2. The movie was actually pretty good for a kid’s movie, but then again  I wasn’t actually expecting a lot from the movie to begin with and there were lots of pun jokes on the food to laugh and sit through.

Before the movie though, we went to the Glen North Pole and took photos with Santa. JT didn’t want any so I went in myself and got the photos taken. I told him my name was Kit, and he was like, “You can call me San” LOL. Anyway, got some selfies with him as well. When the photos were done, we looked at the photos we took and I really liked all of them, cause they were pretty good, haha. I didn’t buy any of the photos cause they were too expensive and I’m a stingey asian, so I just got my phone out and took pictures of the computer screen that had the photos of me in it LOL.

When the movie finished we played those racing car games and I was totally winning at the beginning but then my car crashed and it all went down hill from there LOL.

Afterwards, we spontaneously went to the beach. We planned to go to Brighton but we ended up Half Moon Bay, which is close enough I guess. Anyway, I haven’t exactly been to Half Moon Bay before so I settled with it, and Half Moon Bay is like the most picturesque beach so I took like tonnes of photos of the beach lol.

See, such a beautiful beach. Absolutely picturesque. Love it. But also, when JT and I were walking along the beach, we saw like a black bra and white undies lying on the beach, which was like LOOOL, cause we thought someone had sex on the beach and forgot their undergarments haha. But then I guess if you can’t find it in the dark then you can’t… LOL.
