Monster weekend

It's been a long time since I've gone out so much in one week. I've been out non-stop for 4 nights staight, starting from Thurs night, and it's all because my friend from Oz was in town to attend his brother's wedding. Of course I'm super happy to have been able to hang out with him all weekend, but boy am I so pooped today. I'm still really busy this week as well, and it looks like Thurs will be the only night I'm free to stay home to veg and recover. I can't do this go-out-everyday-thing anymore!

Recap:
  • Thurs night at Wala, where we pigged out on chicken wings and fries. Another friend who was visting from Shanghai also joined us and we compared horror stories of work. Our conversation sure has changed since uni days. Last time we whinged about projects, now we whinge about work. Ok maybe things haven't changed that much.
  • I took a half day to hang with D, so we walked around town and I ran a couple of errands. Went to Balaclava at night to let him listen to the live band (and can I say what a meat market that place is!), but because it was sooo packed, we ended up at Blue Bar at Central Mall where a friend has started singing. We ended up staying until closing time and I got home at about 3.45am after dropping everyone off. It was a night of lots of good music, wine and lychee martinis. Nice. Oh ya, and as a sidenote, Blue Bar is filled with dirty old men!
  • First sms the moment I woke up on Sat morning was D. telling me to get up and join him for lunch. We went to Queensway Shopping Centre and Funan where he and his brother and sister looked for phones. I left them to go for church, and met up with D again later in the evening for more drinkies at Wine Network at Dempsey Rd. I really like that place, it's in a quiet location, really chilled out and casual and best of all, lots of affordable wines. We shared two bottles of a nice dessert wine from South Africa, the name of which eludes me. We were joined by more friends, and headed back to Blue Bar again. This time, the place was dead. I stayed for only one drink and headed home at 2.30am.
  • Got up early Sunday morning to go for the 'date'-walk planned by my cousin. Perhaps I shall mention it in more detail in another post. :) All I'll say for now is that it turned out really well. I had lunch/tea after that with a couple of girlfriends as a 'strategy' meeting for one of their upcoming weddings, and after that tea, whisked off home to prepare for a wedding dinner. It finished fairly early, but I had one last drink at the Hyatt bar (very seedy) with D and his cousins straight after the wedding before heading home.
And here we are at Monday morning. The week has barely started and I'm already exhausted. Don't even get me started on what I've got on this week...

Deetour, fashion & AKK: Indeedy indeedy, coming soon!

Ol' Wolvie: I meant that everyone there was just there to check out the other sex. And they were so blatant about it too.

Hungrybunny: I've heard lots about Ice Cold's chicken wings but am yet to try it out.

Wah, super-happening weekend. Have a good rest soon! (Although sometimes I feel less tired if I push myself to keep going and going ... until one fine weekend I collapse.)
