Happy Saturday! I spent all of today writing my speech for a short debate next Tuesday and finishing up my articles for work and…THANK GOD FOR A PRODUCTIVE DAY!
I’m almost done with the second week of semester 2 and I’m pretty glad everything seems to be going at a relatively fast pace this time. I guess it could be attributed to the fact that this semester is a whole lot shorter than the first one. But it’s also a lot more theory-heavy and I foresee a lot of sleepless nights ahead.
So let’s talk about what I’ve been doing since I’ve gotten back to Perth: I tried Ciao Italia and their famous pastas on my first day back, trip courtesy of Yingsui’s church friend Matt (who was super nice and fetched us from the airport when we landed!), started dance rehearsals again (pretty excited to perform Springfest & KHolic but at the same time worried for the lack of rehearsals we have!), ate more good food and more bad (dining hall ugh) and it’s just been a lot of settling back into university life. Gillian also dropped by again on a Perth flight and I brought her to the Supre warehouse (many thanks to Dee who introduced everyone to the place!) where we bought so much for so little. LIFE IS AMAZING.
JUST LOOK AT THIS MASSIVE PLATE OF AGLIO OLIO?!?! The prices at Ciao Italia are pretty steep, but the portions are really huge and shareable so it’s all worth it. And they are super generous with their ingredients too.
I ordered a carbonara (which I also regretted because it was a bit too much after a couple of bites) and all of us also shared their tiramisu – which was so so so good! It’s a pity the place is a little out of nowhere and impossible to go to without a car…so it doesn’t seem like I’ll be back there for a bit.
Broadway Studio rehearsals and yummy spiral potato sticks at Fremantle with Tania, whom I met from dance last semester.
And as part of another day in the life of cafe-hopping, we finally tried out the food at The Tuck Shop, a really great eatery in Northbridge! I had their cod fish and parmesan toast, which was amazing and super filling. Prices are always a bit steep for food in Perth, but the portions usually justify that.
And when Gillian dropped by we made plans to finally try out Jamie’s Italian in the city (after a failed attempt the last time!) and head to the Supre warehouse. The weather was actually pretty hot that day, and it’s been warming up some days and cooling off on some others, making it pretty confusing and hard to dress for. Urghhh.
And the other day in hall Brenda made chicken rice for everyone!!! Thinking about it makes me really hungry now. 😦
And here’s me with my insanely cheap coat from TaoBao! I was looking forward to dressing for the cold weather here again but now that it’s beginning to warm up I am getting annoyed at the amount of space my coats and jackets take up in my closet. It has also struck me how impossible it is going to be bringing the bulk of my belongings when I finally do go home for good he he he. That arduous task shall be crossed…when the time comes.
So it is Sunday tomorrow and I will be spending it at UWA’s Open Day! I think the school had a similar event earlier this year, also to commemorate their 100 years, but I missed it since I wasn’t in Perth yet. So I’m looking forward to it tomorrow before the start of a new week.
