Highlights of the weekend and a Monday Rush

It has been a hectic weekend and for once most of the events that happened did not relate to food. I guess its about time i give my stomach a good rest and stop indulging in too much food, meaning less food reviews? I guess i do have some backup pictures here and there but knowing how picky i am with reviews, i do hope i at least puke out a review for my faithful readers.

So whats with the weekend? It started off on a slow Friday. No plans were made and i casually walked into Coffee Bean slightly before 6 and opened my books to study. Noisy conversations about renting an office and talking in foreign languages distracted me and at the same time made me feel sleepy, eventhough i had almost gulped down a large Cafe Latte. Somehow or rather, without going into a true sleep, i went through 2 hours of well, not so solid studying before i thought i called it an early Friday. Things didnt end there, fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you look at it..

I received a quick call to meet at Somo for a drink and before i knew it, i was brightened up by the acquired taste of guitar jazz by Farid Ali and Roger Wang while sipping on a cold Heineken. Before long, Zarid Abidin, a total unknown to me croon his way to the crowd with his Malay hits which was certainly an eye opener..Check it out..


When i thought my Friday would end at 12..it didnt..more calls came in from my old school mates, and it was a tough Poker session till the wee 4am..finally called it a day..winnings? RM4 in 3 hours..definitely less then Malaysia's average hourly salary.. Saturday was not too bad at all..when i went to witness the Malaysia International Fireworks Competition..check it out at www.mifc.com.my

I was meant to find a friend there to borrow his tripod..ended up shooting rubbish holding my DSLR up at the sky with less then stable hands..doctor say its due to the stress..maybe this time around its because i havent been clocking enough hours of study so to speak..oh well if after the paper, i still get shaky hands, i am definitely going to get it checked thoroughly..

After that it was a session at Velvet, Zouk to just say hi to some old friends and say bye to some..First time i got through with no hassle and without taking out my wallet..I finally see the power of being a regular kaki..not me that is..another day ending at 4am..

Sensing flu on Sunday and popped 2 panadol before i took a nap to wake up for my Arsenal match..missed the alarm and slept comfortably till this morning when the rush came..

Knocking on my door as usual to wake me up if i cant get up, my mom asked the usual question, not time to wake up yet ar? and i will jump out of bed instantly as usual before i slump down the stairs.. Casually i looked at my phone and i saw 7.05am! Early for some, but i had overslept by 35 mins! Rushing to brush my teeth and shower at the same time, i still had my caring mom to ask me what i wanted to drink. Before i realised i had already washed my hair or not, i heard its School Holiday! Pheww...

Another 15 mins more for me to settle in peace..So that was it, i guess.. i reached work without any food reviews to post.. Feeling fresh but at the same time rushed..but oh well..Have a good Monday people..it definitely didnt start off blue for me..

I used to hate Mondays ... have to drag myself out of bed and go to work. Why can't they start work on Tuesday instead. Now no work, no school to rush out of bed for but my daughter who will cry for milk like an alarm clock at 7 am sometimes 6.30 am ... at least you can a break from waking up early over the weekends. Mine has been like this since one year ago. Combine that with studies and exams - it's amazing I'm still standing. Perhaps that is what they call the power of motherhood. hahaha

Was the jazz festival good? This year there does not seem to be much publicity for it. Don't fret abt blogging - take it easy and blog as and when you like.
