And for once, I will not be sitting at my desk, pretending to work.

Instead here is a glimpse of what I’m packing :)

I cannot wait!

Today's Look 1.2
.

Well,  technically not my today’s look, but this is what I wore for my hot date that I kept talking about in the post from work.

– Currently crazy about one shoulder dresses. Or tops. Just anything one shoulder is beautiful. (The real colour of my dress is more silvery blue.)
– The shoes, I thought I could go either way; blue to match the necklace, or nude to match, well, the necklace.
– Lips, I decided to have it be the one girly touch for the whole look.

And here is the view from the restaurant. Just gorgeous, and the food was almost as good. A wonderful evening indeed.

I am yet another one of the victims that let these little round birds convinced me in to getting a smart phone.





Reporting from work here.

22 10 2011

Yet another Saturday that I am stuck at work. Do I have that much work to do that I need to come in? Most probably no, since I have been reading Damn You Auto Correct, Cosmo articles, and now I have moved on to Marie Claire articles. Then why am I in the office, you may ask? My co-worker couldn’t have explained it better: “we’re just here to keep the boss’s company”. WHICH IS TRUE! Apparently he is quite the workaholic, but if he has to come in on Saturdays, so do we (especially those that just started working).

I actually have been restless all day because I have a hot date tonight. Well, that and the fact that the water is shut down (SERIOUSLY?? then don’t let us come to work!!!!), so every time I need to use the bathroom, I need to go to the lobby. Like right now.

So, hot dates.. that is a little tricky, don’t you think? How dressed up should you be? How much should you wax? And really, how slow could the time move???? I think another reason that I am so anxious today is because I am trying to find the right time to let my bosses know that my next month will be my last month with the company. How do you start that conversation? Especially when another girl from my department JUST quit? Maybe there’s an article on Marie Claire that can help me?

Back to my hot date (needless to say, I am very excited about this), I knew this guy was different because I am being a good girl. If you have been reading my old posts, you will know that if all the men I’ve dated were to grade me, I am definitely not an A+ student. But with this guy, I’m on my toes, in a good way! I think part of the reason is he is the oldest I’ve dated, and probably the most successful thus far (but then again, I can’t really compare someone who’s 4 years older than me with someone who’s 2 years younger than me). There’s a sense of security, a sense of responsibility that I like about being with him. It’s not pretentious, and it feels even better that he somehow finds a way to fit me in to his already established lifestyle. I like it that I don’t have to take care of him like a Mom, and I know that I have to live up to his accomplishments, so I am worthy of being a big part of his life.

We met by chance, and even now, we still can’t agree on who picked whom up, and I love that! I love how easy it was for us to hit it off, I can’t believe how good the timing was, and it’s amazing how he still makes me giggle like a little girl. Despite how many other guys I have been with (he is also the first guy who beat me in the number of partners) the time that I have spent with him feels so fresh and new and just perfect. What I love amongst other things, is how he used to ask me at the end of each date, when he can see me again, and after the confirmation, we kiss. That my friend, is how men should end their dates!

So I guess if you’re interested, stay tune for how the date goes :) Just 1 hour and 15 mins of work left!!

Could really use some munchies right now though.. I think I’m going to grab some KFC really quick before I get dolled up for him. Bad idea?

Seriously, how can you say no to that? And okay, that is not KFC, but I would much rather have Popeyes right now! Maybe chicken wings are better in KFC, but Popeyes’s fries are way better. Too bad I can’t find Popeyes here..





Good things.

Wise words from Ben, who was one of the finalists on the Bachelorette, Ashley’s season.

The more common saying is ‘all good things come to an end‘, and I hate that saying! Why do all good things have to come to an end? I guess it’s the whole idea of you can’t be always happy then you don’t realize the real value of happiness? But the thing is, life is full of horrible things! So if you manage to find something good out of it, don’t you think that it can stay good? When it’s no longer good, then okay, I understand, but you shouldn’t have to let go of something good, just because you feel that it will eventually come to an end.





Simply irresistable.

Do you have that specific item on a menu that whenever you see it, you must get it?? French onion soup is the one for me. I think because it is so hard to find, whenever I find it, I have to have it! That juicy flavourful broth of onion, and melted cheese on top, oh my goodness, heaven in my mouth! I especially have more respect (although I don’t really think they care about my respect) for restaurants that don’t just shove bread with melted cheese on top in the soup. While the bread gets all soggy with the goodness of the soup, it dries the soup up! Must pay attention to small details! But damn, I could really use some right now, my office is hella cold.

As for dessert, I can never say no to Panna Cotta for similar reason.. It is a rare find, although I hear it is not too hard to make.. And while I love love tiramisu and chocolate mousse, not all restaurants make good ones.. Seems like a hit and miss situation with these two’s. 

But Panna Cotta, such a heavenly blend of creamy, milky goodness and the right mix of sweet and acidic fruit (has to be berry type sauce though, I don’t like citrus unless by its fresh fruit self).

Currently munching on:

Three more hours of work!!!!!!
