Weekend in Photos: 2nd last week of October

The weekend went by so fast I barely had time to catch my breath…

First… I trimmed my dog… well, he’s shedding and so… that’s a bag full of his hair and he stillll looks fluffy.

And for those who’ve been following me on twitter, you know I recently bought a 30 pack Roti Paratha aka Roti Prata aka Roti Canai and been craving them… and fact that they’re so damn easy to cook doesn’t help… cause I’d be wanting them every night!! BOOYEAH!

On Saturday I went to Citra Malaysia – a Malaysian festival, the last one for the year. It started at 9 in the morning! But I didn’t turn up until a bit later at around 2pm since my friend who happens to be in the band The Mechanics was performing at those times in the afternoon. I also had the chance to listen to Yugi – a stand up comedy, which I literally laughed so much till I had tears in my eyes! Hint… knowledge of Indian and Malaysian culture would be good to understand his jokes. I totally could relate since Bahasa Melayu and Bahasa Indonesia are two different languages with a lot of similarities – I can understand Bahasa Melayu. **psstt Yugi, if you’re reading this… I suddenly have “Mati Keras”, “Orang Laba Laba”, “Penggali Kubur” and “You gay, mate?” all replaying in my head! **falling off my chair laughing** "

On Sunday, after church we went to have lunch at Wagaya Japanese Restaurant at Fortitude Valley aka Chinatown.  WiPhotos3

The obento (lunch box) is a great idea and for around $12.50-$13ish you get all those plus miso and pickles. I love Agedashi Tofu so that being in the box made me a happy chap already. On the other hand, the tamago (egg) unagi (eel) rice was not something I would recommend or order again. Well that’s because there are plenty of other delicious dishes and this one has to go down to the bottom of the list. The egg was too mushy and too soaked up in the sauce that it just felt like salty mush. I’m a huge fan of unagi (that particular sauce is mouthwatering), however this is no unagi, it is just eel soaked in sauce. Not. Quite. Nice. I guess that particular dish just turned out to be too much of a mush for me. Mushy personality. Nuh uh.

On a brighter side of things, the sushi is a definite winner. Absolutely delicious and I think I am one who’s always up for a good gourmet sushi or sashimi. Not that you can vary much with sashimi since it’s pretty much raw. Hah!

After lunch we decided to walk back to the city – being such a nice day to be by the river despite the sunny weather it was quite windy at times you really need to hold on to your scarf!! (Well, I was wearing a scarf… as suspected if you’ve known how much I wear scarf) I felt like as though I was seeing Brisbane in a slightly different light that day… something quite calming and nice just to walk along the river on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

It was home sweet home afterwards… well I did pop in to Lush to exchange the 5 black tubs to a fresh mask. Since the mask I had in mind was out of stock (Catastrophe Cosmetic) I picked Cupcake since I am never ever gonna get Ayesha again (it feels nice, don’t get me wrong, I just cannot stand the smell, seriously). I’d be honest, I picked Cupcake now because the weather’s getting warmer and my oily area is well… producing oil, so I thought it was an appropriate choice. I have been staying away from this mask until now. It looks and smells like chocolate, too, by the way! Perhaps the major selling point… and I thought of my sisters. I think this would do the trick for them to start using masks. I think it worked!! HAH!

Till next weekend!
