A Week of My Life : Day 3 Wednesday

Today I walked out of my house  just in time to see the bus rumble past. I hate it when that happens (-____-).

This Old Perth Boy School is now a cafe. It seems quite popular and I always think it would be nice to stop there for a coffee and people watch some day.

The lights around my working area were still switched off when I arrived. When there’s no one around, I like to work in the dark. It was a relatively busy day at work, lots of walking around and impromptu meetings. Big decisions and small announcements. My ex manager will be leaving the organisation soon, I will miss him.

I was quite worried when I realised I had hardly any photos all day. Truly, my working life is quite boring. When a colleague invited me to a farewell lunch on Friday, I immediately thought ‘great! can blog about it!’ I stopped by the fishmonger on the way home to buy some prawns for dinner. I find it funny that they have Chinese New Year banners hanging at the shop.

I really do like looking at the evening skies with their changing colours, but one of my favourites has to be the pink sky. Jo was waiting at the entrance when I got home ‘how?! I have no pictures today!’ she exclaimed. Haha. We were both worrying about our mundane lives. I think  a simple life is a good life.

My imaginary dog Scruffy waiting to greet me at home. When you can’t afford to own a real dog, you have to make do with whatever’s available.

Dinner tonight was a variation of my Ah Ma’s famous fried sharksfin dish, only mine was the poor man’s version of stir-fried vermicilli with button mushrooms, crabstick, sausages, bamboo shoots, carrots, prawns and eggs. I love the crunch of bamboo shoots and carrots.

The vermicilli came with a bowl of chicken and sweet corn soup. It’s always nice to have hot soup during winter.

Like my James Herriot reading, no matter what dramas or shows I’m watching, I will always my revert back to my favourite ChibiMarukochan anime. She is just too cute. It just happens that in the episode I was watching, Xiu Yun Ji’s whole family were eating bamboo shoots too (^__^).

When Xiu Yun Ji eats something really delicious, her eyes sparkle and fruits or flowers start shooting from her head. I’ve been told that I have the same reaction to yummylicious food. (=^___^=)

I like Chibi Marukochan so much that even my bedroom slippers have Xiu Yun Ji on them! I guess after reading this post, you’ll all realise that I’m really quite childish and a kid at heart.  I hope tomorrow’s more exciting!
