I can’t believe I haven’t blogged for a month! This past month has been both stressful and physically draining but also filled with lots of acts of kindness and surprises by friends and lovers!
I have been excited about this month-long mid year break for a long time. No clear plans but in my head its a mishmash of shopping, spending time with le bee eff & friends, medical elective perusing, relaxing and sleeping! I got up at 2 pm today.. and it’s a Monday! xD
Since I’ve only been awake for 3 hours and nothing spectacular has happened, I’m going to do a “Month in Review”.
In between 4000 word assignments, delivering babies and 9-6pm days; I’ve become hooked on hot chocolate like my colleagues with coffee. After a long day my housemate and I went for a walk and then sat along the lake’s edge sipping hot chocolate and coffee from these awesome cups. I love clean crisp typography.
My beautiful friend Tracey visited me in Sale. She drove 3 hours to see me! ♥ We had dinner at Relish, which is my favourite place to eat so far in Sale. For entree, we had the prawn cocktail and the sauce was so delicious I also ate the lettuce because it had sauce on it too :p
The best spinach salad ever! Honey coated pumpkin, red onion, not too oily croutons, crispy bacon, pouched egg.. mmmm!
Tracey’s squid chips salad. The chips were delicious!
Any place with fried ice-cream gets my vote! To top it off, the owner of the restaurant also gave us a discount! :D I think it’s because I am Viet.. not many Viets in Sale :P
Went out to lunch yesterday with the boyfriend. I think I’m slowly getting use to the transition of close friend to boyfriend. I don’t feel as awkward as I use to. Don’t feel as awkward as admitting to the fact that we’re seeing each other. Long distance relationship has been a bit of a bummer, but he really spoilt me yesterday by taking me to Number 8.
Ravioli filled with blue crab. Yummo!
His dori dish. I dunno whether this is what fresh dori is meant to taste like or whether it’s seasoning was really good, but it almost tasted like red meat!
I also want to thank you guys for your suggestions of Medical electives. I’ve spent the afternoon looking at the University of British Columbia. Tomorrow I’ll be looking at other places. I’m slightly concerned with accomodation and getting around, considering my limited budget.. but we’ll see. If all else fails.. I’ll look closer to home.
