A Week of My Life : Day 2 Tuesday

I was just thinking ‘my life is so boring I have nothing to blog about’ when I realised I have almost 20 pictures for today! Imagine how many pictures I would be taking if my life was actually interesting.

I was running a little late for work today, hit the snooze button and ended up sleeping for 20 minutes instead of the extra 5 minutes. Luckily I still made it on my usual bus. St Georges Terrace has a new shopping arcade with a Woolworths supermarket. I’m guessing the supermarket will be very handy for workers if the government finally extends weekday trading hours to 9pm, the issue is being debated in parliament now, 7pm, or 8pm or 9pm? What’s the difference?! Just extend!

Side view of Bank West tower. Many years ago when my friend Ah Kiong was still in Perth, someone asked him ‘if you were gang raped by a group of men, what would you do?’ His answer ‘Go to Bank West loh‘. ‘Go to Bank West for what? Withdraw money?’ ‘No. Jump off from the top’. For some reason that morbid conversation has stuck in my head forever and I can’t look at Bank West tower without thinking of Kiong.

Permanent fixtures at my desk.  My trusty lavender smelling hand cream. The pink eared crystal elephant which was the souvenir from Thailand from my colleague. And I brought more apples in to replenish my never ending supply!

Lunch was seafood tofu slices, crabstick, egg tofu slices with lettuce. I like tofu a lot.

Recently B, my colleague (the same one that left me the box of chocolates at my desk) moved to the cubicle next to mine. We can’t see each other coz the walls are pretty high. Today I was typing on my computer when a paper boat landed on my desk, chucked over from B’s cubicle. B sent me an email with the title ‘Whoops’. So I returned the favour by folding a paper crane and throwing it over to her cubicle. She was very impressed and said ‘you are so competitive!’ Hahaha.

And it’s the end of a day’s work again. Every time I see the Gloria Jeans signboard I think of Jo. Sometimes she meets me at the neighbourhood supermarket and will always say ‘mmm… should I get a Gloria Jeans ice chocolate? I love the ice chocolate.. I think I will’, but she never ends up buying it. It is pure coincidence that she actually had a Gloria Jeans ice chocolate today and blogged about it in her day 2 post.

Today I bypassed the fruit and veg shop and walked into Woolies instead. Then walked out 30 seconds later when I saw the check out lines.

I like the colors of the evening sky. The sun was going down as I walked home.

Why are Jo and I wearing thongs in winter? Coz we’re going swimming!

The entrance of the Aqualife Centre, a.k.a. our swimming venue. Our Perth Stampark.

Hehe, photo of Jo taking a photo of the centre.

100 laps later, Jo and I were whispering to each other ‘Eh, can take photos or not?’ while stealing glances at the nearby lifeguards. I whipped out my digicam and took this quick snapshot of our nice heated swimming pool. Every time I go swimming, I tell myself that someday, I have to blog about swimming etiquette. Seriously, walking lanes are for walking, not canoodling or making out *vomit* with your boyfriend. Slow lanes are for slow lapping, not walking! And only go to the fast lane if you actually swim fast! Grrr..

Everytime we pass by this swimsuit stand I think of Jan. 40% off leh, do you want us to help you get one Jan?

Dinner was easy stir fried chicken with onions, stir-fried cabbage and rice.

Jo is working tomorrow so I prepared her lunch bento in this two tiered bento box.

Pretty much the same stuff as dinner with added sausage omelet with coriander.

It’s Adrian’s birthday today. We were going to go over to his place to pass him his presents and perhaps blow some candles. But for some reason or other, it didn’t really work out. Nevertheless, happy birthday Adrian! I hope next year it will be a better one, and hopefully, we can re-celebrate again for you later in the week.

So that ends Day 2, hopefully I can find more interesting things to blog about tomorrow, but my life IS boring!

    I go swimming in that pool at least 3x a week!
    I was there this evening!

    I did 80laps.. and I thought I was impressive
    and you did 100 laps! You are hardcore!

    Yeah – lapping = lapping. not walking. 😉

      I think Jo saw you! When we were getting out of the pool she said ‘Eh Di, I think that is Cynthia’ and I told her ‘No lah, can’t be’. But it was you!

    I think they should extend the trading hours to 9pm. Or at least 8pm. That would be good. I remember on our last day in Perth it was so painful when we tried to buy shampoo but all the shops were closed!

    The evening sky was really pretty!

    Hahaha thongs over here are g-strings!! Slippers are flip flops.

    The swimming pool looks nice, quite clean. Is it clean? But those swimsuits look awful so no thanks hehe. Anyway the summer sales are starting I think, I hope to get a good swimsuit soon.

      You must blog about your swimsuit if you get one. Haha, I don’t think you will post a photo of you in it lah hor. I don’t know when they’re finally going to extend trading hours, Perth is just so slow to catch up with the rest of the world.

    Hi Diana,

    I’m a regular reader of your blogs (I followed you from your old one to this new one). But have never commented, until I saw your post asking for comments. 🙂

    I stumbled upon your blog while searching for a review of Shimizu Japanese buffet, back when it first opened, so I’ve been reading your page ever since you did that review! I’m a fellow Perthie and I enjoy reading about your experiences, especially your restaurant reviews.

    Keep it up! 🙂

      Hi Lola, thanks for commenting and visiting my blog , I love comments. Please visit my sisters’ blogs too, they like comments as well 🙂 Since I’m doing this meme, no time for restaurant reviews, but will have more when this is over. Meanwhile, thanks again!
