#AfterHoursWithTheApple: Cafe hopping & other stories

Normal Update & Photos

So a few days back.. Had the funniest night with 2 of my favorite people. The Strange Tea & Yaya. 😀

We went for dinner at the Richmond Station at Bali Lane where i had a nice burger. It was so filling. I felt like an overblown balloon. And it sucks because my dress was tight and it just isn’t cute to walk around looking pregnant ya know. You just don’t get to wear dresses like that by eating like you’re in a hotdog eating contest. It just doesn’t work like that. I should buy more loose clothings for food expeditions so i don’t have to suck it in all the time. I mean damn.

I really liked Richmond Station because the service was on point, the lady was attentive (we’re not needy btw..) and informative about the menu and the food. So willing to share, i actually suspect she was one of the owners or the owner herself. But it doesn’t matter because she just made us feel wanted and welcomed. 😀 I appreciate. Food was decent, we sat al-fresco and although i don’t fancy the table (it has big gaps in between the planks), but otherwise the whole experience there was really nice. Maybe cos the company i was with was also lovely! Their desserts display had a lot of attractive looking cakes but we were too full to try any that day.

I would probably come back with some friends next time. And i’d  totally recommend people to come and try them. 🙂

#AfterHoursWithTheApple presents: The talkative boy and Angelo.

So today as i was chilling by myself after a spot of solo mindless shopping round’ my neck of woods, I went to LJS to eat. I quite enjoy solo dining. Actually i enjoy solo dining very much, it allows me to people watch. I absolutely LOVE people watching, its my favorite activity aside from reading books and talking to cats.

I like it because it’s a social setting, but you’re removed from it, therefore don’t have to put in effort. You’re not a participant, you’re just an observer. Which i like. Besides, listening to passing conversations of strangers, checking out people’s outfits, hot people, wondering what these people are like, its always fascinating.

And, the best places to people watch, for me, is ALWAYS while dining somewhere. Which, i do a lot of. Hmm, Public transports are my next favourite on the list but public transports usually are little bit harder as i can’t gawk. It’s mainly listening skills but i can’t glance multiple times without getting caught. Ugh.

So anyway, i was at LJS quietly eating my meal when this group of young lower secondary school boys took the tables right next to me. Brilliant. They weren’t rowdy. Nor were they nerdy. They were just average kids who would probably grow up to be generic. I don’t know. I can’t judge, but whatever.  Doesn’t matter.

The token, very talkative and oblivious indian boy started saying “omg guys, i can’t believe i’m hanging out with you guys. I can’t believe i hung out with Angelo all this time. You know Angelo…” was blah blah blah. He was expressing his enthusiasm to being in this current group.. and he went on and on about Angelo, but when i sneakily glanced up to see how his friends reactions were, they were either scrolling through their phones, looking at this talkative boy with glazed eyes or just squinting at LJS’ menu.  Doubt they were listening.

They all got up to proceed to the counter while Talkative was actually still harping on.. So for awhile, i could dine quietly.

After about 5 – 10 minutes, they came back with their food.

The moment Talkative sat his ass down, he started “You know Angelo right.. he was so..” blah blah blah.

God.

I don’t know who the hell this Angelo is, but you are right to drop this potato from your little bitch clique. He talks too much. AND he’s obsessed about you. Dear Angelo-i-don’t-know. From movies, the guys named Angelo are usually italian.. or mexican or something, which i doubt you are, since, y’know, it’s kinda rare to see you guys round here in local schools, kinda rare name too. But anyway i hope to god you’re not the sleazy street hustler i’m imagining in my head from the extensive description of you. Like these:

One day after a pink slip

Finally i have pictures to show.

Yesterday was a lovely, lovely, lovely day. It was a meeting of friends day. I have friends? In 2015? I’m as shocked as anyone frankly. *blows fingernails* Must be my charm. 😛

Ushering the new year in.. (belated)

Alright, so the previous post, the answer to What is the Crotch Shop is..

 

The Crocs shop.

You know.. that company that does these hideous-as-sin shoes:

Well done in guessing. Pat yourselves now, lurkers.

Anyhoos, It’s already the 5th of January 2015! Imagine that. 5 days flew by, just like that. In a snap. Gone.

I haven’t properly wished everyone on here: A happy new year 🙂

I started out my new year on an extremely positive note! For the first time ever, watched fireworks and contemplated my 2014 with people i thought i had lost. That was the best gift so far, and i am really, really happy about that. I don’t want to be bringing 2014 baggage over, and wish to start anew if they would be okay.

2014 was too much a bumpy road for myself, i couldn’t cope then, resulting in bad reactions and decisions to many situations. Also been in a slow emotional recovery for awhile now and am feeling much, much better and more well-balanced. Also been trying to educate myself and am trying to continue journaling as it’s therapeutic, considering the moment i stopped; i became crazy, unbalanced and withdrawn. It’s been an interesting self study and i realize i need outlets to release every emotion and idea, negative and positive and i cannot just do nothing. So i’ll have to keep that in mind..

On new years day, had high tea at Carousel with my eventually-soon-to-be new family (Mr Softie’s) whom i am very fond of, and again, an impromptu dinner at Badoque’s, Simpang (whose portions are just overwhelmingly huge)  on the 2nd Jan with the same people again..

It was just a fantastic start. And it’s a great wave to be riding.

So here is a proper, Happy, happy, HAPPY New Year 2015 to everyone! I hope everyone is as content, as happy and as at peace as i am. I couldn’t imagine a better start (or ending to my year). I’m so super grateful it’s ridiculous, i could cry.

Until my next post!

Stay blessed, and be kind. ❤

p.s Shan’t post the resolutions, no?
