Ok technically I have until Tuesday next week before I return to work but considering its almost end of the work week its safe to not much interesting things will happen between now and then. However I DID cook another dish for tonight’s dinner, my younger sister has been quite social after work so mum has been relying on me and my um cooking skills.
Needless to say I am growing confident in doing dinner for the family and if I’m not on PM shift I will try and do it more often then waiting for mum to do it once she gets better from her healing of her hamstring. Speaking of mum she remarked to me today that what will she do when I return to work next week? I have been home this entire 3 weeks and since her operation been helping her out around the house.
It has got me questioning too because dad and Ange obviously both work too and can’t really stay for many hours each day. Mum has become more independant in how she does things on the ground floor but its getting upstairs is just the hassle for her. I know that with PM shifts I am more flexi, we’ll see how she goes on this. Also Vivid (lights event here in Sydney) has already began, hoping to go soon with Mei before my weekends are gone again.
Dear friends and family know that I have not exactly been a chef, well I don’t even cook in my house and its usually mum while my sister does the sweetest of baked goods. Well two days ago, mum decided to appoint me to do the cooking and I cooked a simple dish for the family- Chicken rice and its literally that. It is like a fried rice with roast chicken pieces, cooked vegies and brown rice- I also tossed in sliced cabanossi for extra kick.
It was a success to the other three under our roof! Now mum wishes me to cook again for tomorrow night, thing is what do I cook? Pasta? Or try and test out my skills like my sister Ange has done?
It’s the weekend here and I have finally got all the chores done plus helping mum out with her leg or fetching extra things and watching a little bit of the movie Chef with her. That movie isn’t so bad, its about one of my favourite things- cooking! Then later on this afternoon I been logged onto Second Life but recieved a drunk skype call from dear friend Recka :P It’s been a good Saturday!
Second week of my annual leave is almost at an end and compared to last week it hasn’t exactly been quite productive…I was aiming to go to New Zealand soon but now mum had her operation this past Tuesday, I thought it best to stay at home just in case she needs someone in these next recovery week. So while I may go out for lunch or even a random drive I’m not far from home for her and being on Second Life even for a couple of hours a day is getting well boring.
I have returned to my Gamer roots since two days ago and not only picked up playing Minecraft on a creative server with Aum but I have also re-downloaded Steam and downloaded both Tera and Terraria. Tonight I am currently in the middle of downloading another MMO by recommendation from Aum- Star Wars: The Old Republic.
I played Tera earlier today while watching a series of leading lady films and found it quite enjoyable it is similar to when I used to play World of Warcraft but a lot more detailed in its gaming style…but its graphics! Oh my gosh, soo beautiful :D I took a lot of happy snaps as I normally would in between each quest and quite like the look of my custom character if I say so myself.
Yesterday I decided to attend the 12pm SLT Elysion party with its new theme of Zombies! This weekend and though it meant staying up past 5am, the hour of going to the party and taking pictures was worth it.
I dressed my avatar as the high end lady killer who after chopping up her undead husband left her mental as well as fighting for survival, she thought she was safe in the hospital not knowing its the most heavily infested place of zombies ever!
Attended the party beside Caity Tobias as usual :D And DJ Des was mixing it up with everyone in synchronised zombie dancing
