August Babies.

The 3rd of August was Ivy's birthday, so we had a little surprise birthday lunch for her. We ate at Plan B. in Midvalley. All of us ate pasta~~

Original Beef Bolognese.

It was my first time eating at Plan B. The service there wasn't very good, but that could be due to the fact that it was lunchtime and they were pretty busy, plus we sat at a corner of the restaurant. The pasta was quite good in my opinion, the sauce was thick and flavourful.

And after that we just chilled at Secret Recipe, eating cakes before returning to Ivy's in a super dramatic fashion and watched cartoons (because we're mature like that yo). Then everyone left, and I hitched a ride with Ivy to Imbi. It was a fun day :D

Aaaaand 5 days later, it was my birthday! Also known as the first day of Hari Raya Aidilfitri. I went to KLCC, the purpose being to visit the Aquaria as my birthday treat from someone-who-declined-to-be-named. HOWEVER, we promptly changed our minds and postponed our trip to the next day when we saw the queue. It was pure madness. We diverted to BookFest, which was equally as jam-packed with people. After a very fruitless visit to the BookFest (I didn't get any books), we settled for The Smurfs 2. The plot was predictable, but entertaining as they made lots of puns.

Tiny birthday cake from yet another someone-who-declined-to-be-named :D

The 17th of August marked Vanessa's birthday, and prior to that Ivy planned an early birthday surprise. I couldn't make it though as I had personal matters to attend to on that day :(

So, to Ivy and Vanessa, if you guys are reading this, Happy Belated Birthday! 

By the way, sorry for the crappy photo editing, my laptop is having a mid-life crisis, so I'm using the house's desktop to blog and this computer is devoid of photo-editing software, save for Picasa. I also apologize if this post seems choppy and disjointed, as I currently have a cold and can barely think straight.

Will put up a separate blog post for my Aquaria KLCC experience on another day, hopefully soon.

Life After A-Levels.

Ayyyy gurl, can I get you a drink? *wink wink* (if you get the reference, here's a virtual Famous Amos cookie for you!)

My last A-level paper was more than a month ago and I'm only making a post about life after A-levels now, when results are to be released in less than 2 weeks ಠ_ಠ how very efficient of you, Michelle. Tsk tsk.

So, what have I been up to in this one month plus, you ask?

Other than festering and growing mushrooms at home, I've gone out and caught up with my high school friends whom I haven't seen in ages (to be exact, since after the SPM results day. I know right.) We first had a regular catch-up session with some karaoke (may I add that it was my first time singing karaoke?) and dinner at Tony Romas in Pavilion. Karaoke was fun, we sang (more like yelled, especially during the Linkin Park songs omg) about 50 songs.

With Ivy & Xi Men (whom I haven't seen since Christmas 2012).

Xi Men being a pimp, haha :D

Then we also had a surprise farewell for Sheng, since she was going abroad for her tertiary studies. We planned to have a picnic in the KLCC park. We attracted quite a bit of attention from passerbys, since you don't really see people picnicking on the grass, with a bunch of bright-coloured balloons marking our 'territory'. We also had to chase the balloons many times because of the strong winds. An army of ants attacked our pizzas, yet we still ate them (we did our best to flick most of them off) because apparently ants contain a lot of vitamin A, and are therefore good for our eyesight ¯\(o_o)/¯. Other than talking, we had entertainment in the form of watching other people pose for photos (with us in the background, hurr).

It started raining when we were 75% done with the picnic, so we had an indoor picnic on one of the benches instead. And we attracted even more attention from the shoppers, because at that point Ivy came back with Vanessa's homemade carrot cake so we were stuffing our faces.

Group photo minus Xi Men, because she left early :(

Excuse my face in these photos, I went for an after-exams facial and as every girl should know, facials = extractions = scabs T_T

I shall also insert a tiny rant about my hair here. 
Every time I cut my hair (I've had bangs/fringe since last year), it usually lasts about 2-3 weeks maximum before my fringe start to look limp and overgrown T_T so annoying omg. Plus, I have a few curly locks at my fringe area, so it refuses to fall nicely and has a mind of its own asdfghjkl. As a result, I have decided to grow them out again. Saves me all the hassle of attempting to tame them and constant trims c:

Other than outings and a short SAC camp for Bursary students, I haven't really been that busy. I've just been helping out with the house chores and attending Mandarin classes (which are quite fun, by the way). I kind of miss studying and college, as nerdy as that sounds. At least I was occupied with something, rather than rotting. Maybe I should get a job ._. or do some kind of project.

ALSO. My birthday is in less than a week. Hehe. Something to look forward to :3

Will update again when I can come up with an interesting post.
