On a tightrope.

Recent food venture with Zhiyi. Yeah we both realised we hang out a lot this holidays, even way more than the times we'd go to school and back home together. But since he is the only poly fag that lives just 200 metres away from my place, it's a given isn't it.
I kinda miss Zhizikemi. And cosine. Can't wait for them JC kids to finish up this year. There are actually a couple of people I've been missing since I haven't met or caught up with them in forever. And it doesn't seem like this holidays is the appropriate time to do so either. Or maybe it's just cause it's early March.
Anyways, the two of us went to visit Brownice. It's a vegan ice cream cafe that has their dessert all made from natural flavouring (no artificial ones) and raw fruits/nuts etc. Basically, it's sinless comfort food!! Okay maybe it isn't exactly sinless but it's way healthier than all the other sweet junk you could possibly find. They use organic brown rice milk instead of the fatty dairy cream in other ice creams.
Sounds unappetising? Well, you'll be surprised. Despite being dairy-free, healthy and all, it's actually just as good. Zhiyi didn't believe me and had the idea that I was just forcing myself to eat healthier stuff now that I'm closely watching what I eat and all but their stuff is really awesome!! No kidding.
I got myself their brownie and dark chocolate ice cream. Even he who hates sweet stuff agreed that they were good. HAH.
I wanted to try other flavours but it wasn't exactly a day for me to indulge in all these treats so I didn't. I'll save it for another day which I suppose would be sometime soon. It would mean the world to me if I got hired at their workplace. Keeping my fingers crossed for their call.
I got myself some earl grey cookies too. :)
We were basically walking along Thomson road, seeing what other cafes are worth visiting next time. And yeah I happened to chance upon BerryGerryBakes.
Stopped by little pancakes cause Zhiyi wanted something savoury since he didn't had much. It's damn funny when his meal arrived though because looking at him and the 10 little pancakes they give... HAHAHA. Well at least their iced latte was good!
Well that pretty much concludes our food venture! I guess there'll be another one soon idk.
Oh and yeah, I've decided to quit working at Gongcha. Maybe not quit exactly but my pay days with them aren't exactly the best experience. For the past 13 months, I was probably short paid more than half. If it's a dollar or two I'll usually look past it but $30? And this time they paid me $100++ less than what I should receive. Each time I complain with my colleagues, yeah, guarantee most of the time we'll receive the top up next month but it's quite annoying honestly. I need that money for the month yknow lol. Just wtf man enough of your bullshit ok I'm so done with this. It's not like you're paying more than the minimum wage anyway.
Which explains why I'm hoping to work at Brownice though I don't know if they'll call me back. Sounds kinda hopeless huh but I'm still gonna wait by my phone and pray for the best. Otherwise I'm gonna have to start hunting for another job that ain't paying me less than peanuts.
With you it always feels like home.

(a couple of art student lining the streets)
^Last stop for a break before heading home.
Spent my Sunday shopping with Trisha, and today on a date at Chinatown with my boy! Hahaha it wasn't exactly a date since we had things to buy and hence the trip, but might as well make the best out of it!
So yeah I went out of the way to buy shampoo. Yeah shampoo and just shampoo cause apparently you can get it at People's Park Complex at $17 for a litre of shampoo and a litre of conditioner when you pay pay the exact same price for only 300ml at other supermarkets and department stores. Talk about cheap!!! #auntiebelle
As usual, enjoyed the quality spent with him. During his study break and week of exams, I barely saw him at all (just practically worked my ass off) so thank god for the end of his papers and school!!!
But heading out 4 days in a row also means loads of spending. Brandon downloaded this app called Wally and I thought it was quite cool so I downloaded it too. It basically tracks your expenditures, whilst tracking your salary and budget if any. It's quite cool you should download it especially if it's your holidays right now. Trust me you'll need it.
After recording all the items I've spent since the start of March (which has only been 3 days), I have already spent up to $300+?! Lol what can I say. My Sunday with Trisha got me 4 new apparels and some makeup products. And makeup is. So. Damn. Expensive. I haven't started putting them on (too lazy and it's kinda troublesome) but I'm bound to in the near future so... Yeah.
Not really glad about the fact that I've spent half of what's in my bank but at least I still got my pending pay which has yet to be transferred. Thank god.
Can't wait for more trips, outings, photoshoots and dates to come. ^_^
