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.

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.

City Adventure

Yesterday I went to the city with Grace to celebrate her belated birthday. It was actually a week ago but we were both busy so we just decided postpone it. We met up at the station and had to switch trains to get to Melbourne Central. Once we were there we got our tickets for beanbag cinema even though it wasn’t until 6PM later that day. Aaaaand being the retard I am, I tried to give the guy Village Cinema vouchers instead of Hoyts HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

After we got our tickets we went off to lunch at Giraffe Cafe. Neither Grace or I knew the city very well but after pulling out our trusty GPS on our phones we managed to find the place. It’s a rather small place with a light blue exterior so it stands out among all the other stores. The food there is okay. I had the pasta and it was very salty, I had to drink a cup of water after lol. I love the interior of the little place though, it’s very unique and so cute haha.

20130922-152316.jpgAfter lunch we walked around the city and made our way to Crown. Even though I was dressed up – did my hair, makeup and wore a pretty dress with heels, apparently I still look underage. Probably look like 12 D; because the guy at the casino checking people’s IDs didn’t believe Grace and I were of age. I think he didn’t have a problem with Grace because we was grilling me and oh my god I was flipping the shits on the inside. When I gave him my ID, he asked me a question and of all the questions you can ask about someone’s identification, HE ASKED ME WHAT MY NAME WAS FUCKING HELL YOU CALL YOURSELF A SECURITY GUARD AT LEAST ASK ME MY ADDRESS OR DATE OF BIRTH OMFGG!

Moving on, we made our way to Galactic Space and played this pirate game, where I died in the early part of the second stage because I simply suck. After that we decided to make our way back around MC to get some snacks, go shopping etc. Before we knew it, it was six and it was time to watch the movie.

We saw the magician movie, Now You See Me, and it’s a good movie. I very much enjoyed it, even though it did have a tricky storyline to follow when you’re somewhat falling asleep from the comfy beanbags. Haha, those beanbags are massive, it’s very couplely because it’s two people for one beanbag. But yeah, go watch the movie if you haven’t already seen it.

20130922-152431.jpgAnyway gonna end this post with a picture of myself because. It was taken somewhere near crown LOL probably looked like a tourist to bystanders heh.

Gatecrasher

Today was really kind of unexpected actually, a lot of it was really spontaneous, which is good in most ways – just not all the time, I reckon.

Anyway, so I went to uni for a lecture today that when from 9:30 to 10:30, then I met my baby (boyfriend) at MC at about 11:15ish, since he had to attend a class beforehand due to attendance marks or something along the lines of that. The meet up was pretty spontaneous as I’d only asked him to meet up with me this morning. So when we met, we got him some food since he was starving, and I’d already eaten before since I got pretty hungry.

When he finished eating, we decided to go back to his uni in Parkville. They were throwing a sausage sizzle, so I helped myself out – actually Baby got one for me since he was on the committee and helping out and selling tickets to some uni event later this week. While he was hard at work (probably not, since he came over and spoke to me a lot), his two friends came over and talked to me, and kept me company. They told me many dramatic stories over the weekend when they had camp.

After that, Baby had a lecture so I decided to tag along and sit through – very boring in my opinion, so lucky for me I’m not doing that unit or course lol. After that, Baby had to go study for his prac tomorrow so while he studied, I tried to entertain myself and keep myself busy to not distract them. For the most part, I ended up playing on my phone, and lying down, resting my head on Baby’s lap.

A couple of hours later, we got pretty hungry so we made some migoreng LOL, actually Baby made it for me since I stood there in the kitchen and did nothing but watch him haha, then after that, he decided to take it one step further and feed me my drink and food as a joke, haha!

Then we went to this event that Baby’s uni organised and I’m pretty sure students from other universities were not allowed to come in, but they didn’t ask me for student ID or anything at the door so I was pretty lucky! It’s called Parma Night. Baby had to go as he was preforming on the guitar with his group of friends. They preformed Metro’s Dumb Ways to Die, and I think about four of them dressed up in onesies!

Yeah, so we ordered our Parma’s at like 7ish and we got our drinks straight up and everything, but fucking hell, the parma’s took forever to make! We got about five (there was nine of us) at first, then we had to wait for the other four, WHICH NEVER CAME! OMG! It was like 8:00 when Baby’s group had preformed and a quite a number of different groups!

According the people making the parma said there was a stuff up among the orders. I don’t know what they’re called but we were given this electronic ticket that flashes/beeps/vibrates when the food was ready, and apparently the machines at the back didn’t work properly so that’s why we only got half our order first or something along the lines of that.

The four of us who hadn’t gotten our parma yet were getting quite hungry and I got pretty tired waiting around for my food since apparently our orders had gotten mixed up or something like that! So I decided to just go home and Baby was kind enough to accompany me home! 🙂

So that was my day! I’m so knackered from it all, haha. Can’t wait for mid-semester break, woo! Two more days and I’m on break, yay!

Birthdate

For my birthday, I went to the city and the beach.

I got picked up at about 10:45am and was greeted with a beautiful banquet of pink flowers at my driveway! After I ran back inside to put it in a vase and leave it on the kitchen bench, I went back outside, locked the house up and got into the car. We then drove to Glenny train station and on the way to the station, April saw me from across the road and wished me a happy birthday! We took the train to Flinders, where we decided to dine at Mamak. We spent about a good hour or so walking around the CBD trying to find Mamak as neither of us knew our way around the city very well. We turned to using the GPS on our phones followed that, then realised we could’ve stopped at MC since we were discussing how we could get off at Richmond to get to MC since the train we took was direct to Flinders. On the way to Mamak, we passed by Ray and gave him a quick ‘hello’ as we were going in different directions.

When we finally arrived at Mamak, we saw it was closed much to our dismay, even though it said they were open from 12:30pm to 3:30pm or something, and it was only 1:30pm when we got there. We ended up dining at Schnitz instead and got really full afterwards but it was soo good haha. We sat there for a while then decided to walk to the art centre where we looked around at the European Art section for a while before getting bored. After that we went across the road to Queen Victoria garden and sat on one of the benches or a while and chilled out.

After that we decided to walk to San Churros where we split a massive cup of iced chocolate! It was soo good, I swear it’s worth the $3.85! Anyway, after that we walked around MC before catching the train back to Flinders during peak hour. We walked to the Glen after we realised we weren’t that hungry for an early 6:00 dinner since we ate a massive, late lunch and thought it’d be better if we’d buy something else from Woolies instead and bring it along to the beach.

When we paid for the groceries, we drove to Chelsea beach, just in time to watch the sunset and nom our dinner on the beach. When we finished our dinner and when the sun was surely down by then, we decided to call it a day and drive back home.

It was an amazing day, and I shall now leave you with a photo of me watching the sunset on the beach. 🙂

Oh yeah, I’m gonna write about all of my birthday presents in another post since I’m currently sleepy and can’t be bothered writing it up all here.
