RECESS WEEK ROUNDUP

Today marks the end of recess week \(;´□`)/

It has not been very productive, but that goes without saying. All I accomplished this week was revert to my fucked up sleep cycle. I am now sleeping at 6am and waking up at 6pm, yay me!

So to sum up my "study break":

Monday:
Nichol wanted to watch How to be Single, so we had a lunch and movie date.

Lunched at Sumiya Charcoal Grill Izakaya, which was her 好介绍. I tried Chirashi-don for the first time and I loved it!!!

Look at those colourful and pretty bowls of Chirashi-don.
The lunch set was quite value for money! Around $20 for Chirashi-don, salad, chawanmushi, miso soup and mochi.

The salmon was very fresh, and I now realise why people love Chirashi-don. It is so shiok to eat huge chunks of raw salmon with Japanese rice! The mochi was so unassuming, but it turned out to be really nice. It's filled with this black sesame, red bean and milk paste. Not too sure what it was, but it surpassed expectations.

Overall a very satisfying lunch and I am already craving for it now. Anybody wants to try, jio me please! (*´ڡ`●)

how to be single
Okay, I already expected How to be Single to be a trashy chick flick, but it might be entertaining so why not give it a try? After watching this, I think you are better off spending your time and money on other movies. The Revenant and Deadpool are still showing.

I didn't dislike the movie, although it was just two hours of stereotypical scenes. Smart-ass remarks from Rebel Wilson, hit-and-miss attempts at relationships, single girls getting drunk and looking for love. At least I didn't fall asleep.

My favourite line in the movie: “there is no such thing as a break, season 3 Ross."

Also, I am obsessed with Dakota Johnson's outfits in the movie! I couldn't find any nice pictures online though. I searched "how to be single outfits", so anyone going through my search history would think that I was finding for outfits for being single.

Tuesday:
Gary was transiting in Singapore, so we went to Chomp Chomp for dinner. No photos here, because I was too eager to eat.

I was looking forward to my durian mousse, but Dessert Bowl was closed for Chinese New Year. K N N . We settled for shaved ice at Dessert Story instead. Sigh, my durian mousse.

Wednesday:
We had grand plans to recce several locations for our amazing race, but it kept raining.

We did make it to Botanic Gardens, only to be caught in the rain. So we spent most of out time there trapped in a pavilion with a bunch of pigeons who were also seeking shelter. Oh the wonders of nature. Here's a photo of some greenery for you ^

Had dinner at Bar Bar Black Sheep, which was like a more upscale version of Al-Ameen. I swear, butter chicken and butter naan are a match made in heaven. Their butter chicken was not spicy at all, so I was spared the tears and drippy nose despite my low tolerance for spicy food.

Ordered mac n' cheese, which got quite sickening after awhile because every bite tasted purely of chewy mozzarella cheese. Beneath that layer of crusty baked cheese was macaroni swimming in sauce that was too watery to be classified as a sauce. Would not order again.

Friday:
I finally got productive by Friday, but that was only because I procrastinated the entire week.

Went to school for a project meeting, which was followed by another online project meeting. I ended up camping in school for the rest of the day to rush assignments.

This looks like some hipster cafe, but it was actually Pizza Hut Express in UTown. I was actually doing work while eating pizza, not sure if it is sad because of work or awesome because of pizza.

I actually really enjoyed my Friday, although it revolved around work. I love the feeling of being productive. Maybe that is why I always procrastinate. There is no motivation to do work until it piles up, because the challenge of completing them in time by being as productive as possible is what drives me to get cracking.

Okay, that may just be a bunch of bullshit excuse.

Lately, I've been exercising more frequently because I realised that it makes me feel energised and refreshed. My new "daily routine" includes exercising along to some YouTube workout video, showering, then doing work. It has barely been a week since I started, so let's hope I get in the groove (and stay in that groove).

After a few days of feeling infuriatingly sluggish and staying in bed all day, I realised that getting just a few minutes of exercise really works wonders.

Okay, it is now 7am and I am still awake, so I am officially screwed when school is back in full swing.

So many deadlines ahead, yet I am still making plans to meet up with people. Never die before is it?
