what a beautiful story

I just finished reading Memoirs of a Geisha. What an extraordinary story. I read the last couple of chapters on the way home this evening and felt a sense of peace as I closed the book after the last sentence.

That book definately tugged on some heart strings, let me tell you.

Today was the end of my two day working week coz I'll be off to Brisbane tomorrow for ADORE06. What will come out of it... who knows?

Had lunch today @ Sky Phoenix for John's birthday. I was this close to not going because I felt like a bit of a JI but when I got there I decided I was being much too petty. It's always good to catch up with friends you only get to see once every couple of months - or in Ed's case, once a year... though I expect that to change now he's back :)

After work, a few of the grads got together at Senate to farewell Ken before he runs away to HK. What a move. It was a great turn out, I must say. I'm glad that the weather held out because cheap steak + summer night = VERY CHILL.

I'm gonna be doing a lot of last-minute packing tomorrow. I'm so hopeless at doing things in advanced - that should be another resolution hey? They're coming along... my resolutions... hopefully they'll be ready by the end of the month.

Good night :)

the return of the recount

Maybe I should make it a resolution of mine to start blogging again. Maybe.

The last weekend quite exciting.

Hung out with the work peeps on Friday night. It's fun to get together with them every few months just to see what everyone's up to. Seemed, on Friday, that lots of people had some gripes with what they're doing for work. But we all managed to forget all that on Friday to enjoy ourselves. We started off at Forbes. I only managed to have one drink because the one I had (the strawberry daiquairi which the bartender hated making) made me a little dizzy. Nix and Al were there and needed a little nourishment after a few so we went to Wagamama for dinner. I went back to Forbes while they went home and chilled there for a little more before heading to Bar333 to finish up. Good night. Very good night.

Saturday was very chill. I stayed in bed for most of the morning until I decided it was time to get out. I took a stroll around the mall for a little before going home for some yummy Thai. While I was roaming around, I came across the CUTEST Maltese x mini Poodles in a pet store. One of them bit my hand and I swear, I stare at the scratch its little teeth made on my knuckle every day. I want one so bad! Not now, I have enough dogs... but maybe when I move out on my own. Who wants to buy me one?

Saturday night was Veed's 21st Birthday Party at the Blacket. It was nice to see a few people I hadn't seen for a while. I'm glad Veed had a good night. I made such a gross speech... but apparently the DVD Kim, Kate and I prepared for her (which stuffed up half way) made her happy.

Sunday was lazy az. I think I woke up, ate, slept, ate, then went to church. SO lazy. My Kuya from the Phils flew in yesterday afternoon so we had a big family dinner at home.

Right now... I'm tired. I'm watching Supernatural - interesting... bit scary though =
How's that? A recount! I'll try to check in more often.

Peace out homies.

PS. Ok... Supernatural is freaky.
