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!

    The Old Perth Boys School cafe looks nice! You should definitely visit and review.

    Where is Red Fin? I don’t recall seeing it near your house.

    I nearly bought Siu Yun Ji when I was in HK, they had loads. Sadly they were quite ex.

    The Red fin shop reminds me of the fish market in Melbourne Queen Vic market. All the seafood look so clean n fresh and displayed to perfection. I always felt like buying all of them home. So unlike the ones here.

    Your chibi slipper look so CUTE..

    We(Jan,Jo,U & me)all love cute stuffs..don’t we!!!We are young at hearts!!!

      Yes, but seafood here is so expensive compared to Singapore or Malaysia. If not I would be eating fish everyday (must to Jo’s dismay). Ya ya, important to be young at heart, especially as we get older!
