39 degrees. That is the weather in Western Australia at the moment. Tomorrow, we might see it peak at 40 maybe? Me and heat, that is a cursed combination. Yesterday, XL and I went to Carousel to catch the new Harry Potter movie. While I’m not the biggest Potter fan on screen, the new movie impresses when compared to its predecessor. Lunch time was kept simple, McDonalds for the win. A nice large value meal with cold drinks to quench my thirst!
McDonalds. The great combination a.k.a McChicken McValueMeal
I have always thought of the McValue meal at Meccas as great value. Awesome combination that fills me up to the brim with added satisfaction in the process. One of the best things about McD is the apparent consistency that is present now matter how far apart the restaurants are. The one in Australia pretty much tastes the same like the one in KL, so does the branch in Hong Kong. It is pretty damn wicked, sick is it not? This makes some restaurants pretty damn shit. Same restaurant, same chef, same food, different day, different taste. This especially applies to all the Malay and Indian restaurants back home in KL. But I guess this consistency comes with all the hype and experiments regarding how long can the food last before rotting. But truth be said, no one cares.
Ok enough ranting about McDonalds. After the Potter movie, all of us, including the guys that have finished exam headed for a swim down at the Victoria Park AquaLife centre. 5 bucks rip off!! Did not really enjoy the swim there. After the swim, it was dinner time. A bunch of overjoyed engineers and steamboat was on the schedule. But the weather killed us all. Despite buying just enough food, I was full even though I did not eat much. It was so saddening. Sitting at the table, I saw all the balls floating around the broth. This again was all thanks to the stupid weather. Summer and steamboat, officially the worst combination EVER. Ok enough complaints.
Off to bed I go. Time to enjoy the comfort of an antique air conditioning systems.

It has been ages, since I last had a cuppa. The usual places would be Tiamo @ Nedlands or Dome @ anywhere. Or perhaps, after dinner over coffee talk. Just yesterday, the little darling and I decided to head over to South Perth for a drink before coming back home. Dome would have been an automated choice, but something different would be good aye? Yea? Yea? Haha!! But this time around, we decided to go to Atomic Cafe @ Mends street. It is just opposite Dome. The drinks there tasted OK. Xin Ling had an orange juice. Sugar free, 100% orange. This and that but jeez. It was sour. Upon tasting it my hair spiked & balls dropped. But it is ok, girls have their reasons for enjoying the acidity I’d reckon?
But for me, I will do it the kids way..

With the mercury topping temperatures this spring paired with a century-long heat record broken, this remedy was divine. But sadly, I’m not Aussie enough to appreciate the finesse in a barrister’s effort. Froth. I enjoy a thick layer of froth though :D! Does that count?
Most people know my stories. From the outside, it is pictured like a grasshopper, but inside, its really just incompatibility. But when you find your very own charmer, it does not need a second thought. It is simply just too obvious. The riddles are self-explanatory and it all comes together. The busy year slipped through like a breeze despite the entanglements involved.

The no. 88 is a simple Chinese representation of prosperity. Depicted above is mine. But there are a few other ladies in my life. My mom, sister, grandmother and a few others. I must really thank them for all the ease and encouragement they have brought to my live. For some, their presence alone makes a difference.

It is funny that I’m blogging about examination period coming to an end for me. This is so considering the time that has passed since the engaging period of my 4th year came to an end. But there is a certain difference when you finish exam alone, and, when your partner or friends finishes with you. Alone its funny. They study while you spend the whole day killing aliens or invading Vietnam. But since Xin Ling finished her exam two days ago, CR today and the rest of the mates on Thursday or so, this calls for a celebration ey>? Haha!!! A little bit on the premature side but after I went to pick up a cake for the little darling after brunch at a new dim sum restaurant.

A cake fit for dessert lovers. The mango cake from Esthers @ William Street, Northbridge. The top of the cake is layered with a thin slice of mango. And between each sponge layer, a lovely combination of cream and more mangoes!
Holidays :)! 15 years of exams and counting. We never stop learning do we?
