I love how it is school holidays right now. My morning commute is shortened by 10mins!

That was excellent news for me this morning as I was running late and thought that I would be late for work and decided to try my luck at a bus + train combo.

That is faster than my usual one bus way but with the roads a little clearer without the school buses and parental cars, I managed to make it to Chatswood by 8:16 rather than the 8:30 I envisioned.

I might be seeing The Maze Runner tomorrow. Yay movie!

Here is another cute one.

On their youtube page, they have posted the video of them performing this song at their wedding. Just adorable.

Us The Duo. No Matter Where You Are.

After coming across some Vine clips, I went searching for Us The Duo.

I was a little disappointed to see that they didn’t have many covers on YouTube as the Vine clips I saw were of popular songs (which is a travesty because I’d be very interested in hearing their take on some songs). 

What I did find was some original works.

I particularly loved this one. This is called Take Me Home.

The voices are amazing!

Twin and I decided to go to China Town a little early and scope out a dinner place. We originally decided on Ramen Kan because the ramen and udon and other foods have always been a favourite, but the lift has you feeling like you’re playing with your life as it ascends.

We also thought about the Japanese place with the touch screens but after arriving after 6:30 and enquiring about the wait time (there were so many people waiting), 30mins just seemed a little long. So we decided to chance the lift at Ramen Kan.

The food was so yum and the udon I ordered was nice and chewy and flavoured just right. I walked out feeling a little like I wanted to puke (over-ate as usual) but the short walk to the Qantas Credit Arena and the sit down helped with the digestion.

The two warm up acts were pretty entertaining but we all wanted the main event.

FLUFFY! Gabriel Iglesias!

The photo I put up was about 10mins before the start of the night and by the end the whole place was packed. 8000 people participated in the close of Fluffy’s World Tour and he proudly and bashfully pointed out that we chose him rather than JT - who has a concert on Sunday.

Twin swears that she can pick us out from the photo that Fluffy posted on FaceBook with the audience in the background. I see a dark blob that may or may not be the two of us. 

Yay Fluffy

Saturday’s meet up with the Uni Crew took an unexpected turn.
BFF didn’t turn up (so by extension neither did BFF’s BF) and Family Girl didn’t make it either.
Rather than do all the drinking we said we’d be doing, we ended up just sharing a few bottles of cider.
The IT Guy invited a friend of his and we ended watching the Lego Movie in 3D. The IT Guy wanted to show off his new 3D tv. I hadn’t see the movie so I didn’t object. The movie was actually enjoyable. I like how it poked fun at the stereotypes how movies usually have a formula. 
Twin and I said farewell around 6pm as we had to get dinner before…Unity Through Laughter!

A graduate student has created the first man-made biological leaf. It absorbs water and carbon dioxide to produce oxygen just like a plant. He did this by suspending chloroplasts in a mixture made out of silk protein. He believed it can be used for many things but the most striking one is the thought that it could be used for long distance space travel. Plants do not grow in space, but this synthetic material can be used to produce oxygen in a hostile environment. (Video)

speechless.

Holy fudge

I had Chinese (shanghainese food) for the third day running for lunch! Went to New Shanghai (in Lemon Grove) for their rice cakes. So yum!

So full!

I was so worried we’d miss the train that I convinced my admin boss that we needed to leave early because I was afraid of being a slow walker. 

I wasn’t!

On the downside, I forgot to get the cupcakes I had brought for my boss and her twin out of the office fridge.

I met the cat and I got to pet her for a bit. She then decided that that was enough attention and then spent the rest of the time I was there, under my boss’ bed. My boss was still impressed that the cat let me pet her when I first got there. Chin and head strokes!

Tomorrow is drinking and Fluffy!!

Thank you to my new follower!

Have a good weekend everyone! I know I will!

Today I got lunch at a discount. I chipped in $5 for lunch and the rest was covered. So I got more dumplings and xiao long bao. Yum!

There was a sudden storm that raged over Sydney today. Luckily, where I was it didn’t hail and the rain let up so that the walk to the car carried a memory of the chill and the damp.

I want this week to be over already! I’ve been a day forward this whole week and although I got paid today, most of the money went right back out. 

Saturday can’t come soon enough!

FLUFFY! That’s right, Twin and I are going to see FLUFFY!!

As I didn’t have belly dance this week, I managed to get a lift home.
It is very nice to get home while the sky is still light. The tree is still bare, though. But there will be an explosion of leaves soon enough.
Today the admin pool forgot to tell me that we were all going out for lunch as my admin boss had her Birthday on Monday. They were all getting ready to leave en masse, I was going round their way with my poor man’s lunch (rice with some asian seaweed flakes) and one of the ladies asked if I wasn’t going. 
"Going where?"
"To yum cha" 
"No one told me about yum cha!"
The other five ladies, assumed that one of the others would have told me!
So I left my rice for another day and went to have yummy xiao long bao. We rolled back to work and then less than an hour later we partook in a slice of pavlova for the August/September Birthdays. Yum!
Tomorrow is pay day. So very happy about it!

If you can’t tell what that is, I’ll tell you. Last week when we had Soccer Star Mini in for work experience, he decided to leave an impression. Literally.
I have had people ask me on Friday, Monday and today. I get two questions: “Is that a face?” and ‘Who’s face is it?”
Apparently it is easier to do a facial impression if you go from side-on rather than front-on. One of the few imprints that has lasted this long. Usually something gets bumped or someone can’t resist making a hand,
