I was probably the first one to get off work, so I went to met up with MC at her hotel room and tried to decide where to go and have dinner while waiting for the rest to arrive. MC suggested that if everyone was too tired, we could just order from the restaurant downstairs. I didn't mind, afterall I still haven't managed to try out the restaurant ever since Hilton reopened in Sydney. She threw me the menu from her room and asked me to flip through it while we waited for everyone else.
And I saw this....
Lasagne - classic - lots of meat and tomatoes -- $30.00
-served with leaf salad and bread
Vegetable fried rice with fried egg and chicken satay -- $34.00
Lasagne for $30 ?!?! More importantly ... $34 for a Nasi Goreng !?
"I think we should go out and find some place to eat... I don't think we should eat at a place which sells Nasi Goreng for $34"
Fooked if I'm going to pay $34 for a Nasi Goreng
Ok, I know its the norm for Hotels to charge ridiculous prices for their food, but $34 for what is essentially just Fried Rice ?! Does traditional Nasi Goreng even come with Chicken Satay ?!
We ended up getting take away from a Ramen noodle place downstairs instead and bringing it back up to the hotel room. Which turned out quite nice, as we could all just lounge around on the king size hotel bed, as we updated each other about our current endeavors, our current bf's long and shortcomings and generally just talked about anything else under the sky.
If only I didn't have to work the next day, I would have raided her mini bar and switched to a much more 'interesting' cable channel.
Well.. what do you expect when you put a bunch of highschool girls together ?!

I luv my Crocs !!!
Although after today I realised there is a slight drawback with wearing my Crocs to work - even on a casual Friday. From my walk to the train station, the whole train trip (peak hour traffic), the walk to my office, into my building to the lift to my floor, I felt that everyone I walked passed would look atleast once at my feet. Actually, I didn't feel it. I saw it. Everyone that was in a visual vicinity of where I was, was staring at my feet.

Last week we went to the Sofitel Wentworth which had the 'Chocolate Assiette' on offer.
Chocolate assiette - a delicious tasting plate consisting of white chocolate crème brulee, Valrhona bitter chocolate parfait and praline and a berry & milk chocolate terrine, with Brown Brothers Botrytis Reisling
Sounds good ?
Well... It looks good too... :p~

And before anyone asks....
Yes, I've peed in a pool before. (Hasn't everyone ?!) The toilet is always situated too far away from the pool anyway.

I guess since I'm leaving this place now, my manager has assigned all the boring tasks to me that no one else wants to do.
There isn't really anything wrong with that. Apart from the fact I have to come into work this weekend, and I have to deal with the one bad aspect of a data center.
Its blarrddyy freezing !
I've got 30 mins left before I have to go back in to kick off the next stage of the installation.
30 mins left to de-frost my butt.....
Where's a bum warmer when you need one ?!?

I still have 4 weeks left at my current job, but I already know I will deeply miss everyone here.
After my manager announced my resignation, my Inbox was bombarded with emails from my colleagues. The head of Trading even asked my manager that if it was about money, then maybe Trading can do something about keeping me here.
But its not about the money. The new job I am taking on, is one which I hope would help me path the way to achieving my goals. Or to put it simply, what I would want to be doing in the next 5 years.
And for me, 5 years is my set target timeframe at the moment. Because if I'm not 'successful' (in my terms) in the next 5 years then I might as well stop trying and just settle down with a husband and start popping out the kids.
Anyway, it is nice to know that I have made a difference in my current company.

I haven't been back to Melbourne since setting foot in Sydney. The only thing I really remember is the weird weather. But since it was spring, and Sydney was hitting 34°, I decided to pack light, and bring only one spare top and shorts I can sleep in for the night.
Melbourne had a high of 14° that day. By night time I was freezing my butt off.
Talking about chocolate.....
my lunch @ Max Brenner.. oh and i had a thick hot chocolate to go with it as well.
I only just managed to finish the waffles by myself. And after finishing the hot chocolate, I felt like going back to the hotel to sleep it off. Bad thing was that when I glanced around at the other tables next to me, I could see a table of 3 sharing the same waffle I had by myself. Felt like such a pig.
An hour later, my drinking buddy and our other friends called me to let me know the reception was finished, and that they would be heading over to Koko Black for drinks. Koko Black, turned out to be another Chocolate Bar \ Cafe.
3/4 of the tasting plate @ Koko Black - I already started eating b4 I remembered to take a photo
I shared the tasting plate with my friend which included another hot chocolate. I wasn't disappointed though, the hot chocolate was very good, but because it was so rich (and I was already up to my neck in chocolate), I only manage to finish half of it.
I was so completely stuffed with chocolate that I managed to skip dinner, and still felt quite full when I went out for drinks that night.

I feel like I've just had my brain taken out and grilled for an hour, X-Rayed and put back inside.
I've already made up my mind that this is the job I want. Although I wont really be getting a pay increase (unlike the other two).. I would have a chance to work with real technical guru guys.
Now all I have to do is wait for the magic phone call.... (Fingers X)

But since I've already downloaded the photos from my phone, I might as well just post it.
Oh...For those who may have watched the Fox Sports channel (and ended up seeing last years game instead), the Eagles won by 1 point. Apparently only the free-to-air channels had exclusive rights to the Grand Final broadcast, so the people who had Fox Sports, somehow ended up watching a replay of last years game instead.
Anyway, here are some photos taken with my SE K800i at Telstra Stadium on the night of the Sydney Swans Vs Fremantle Dockers game.
we were sitting right behind the goals. premium firing-line seats.
I spent half the time trying to avoid having the football torpedoed at my head
the game wasn't as interesting as I thought it would be. without the commentators, this is what I saw majority of the time. at these times, I just focused on that little screen on the right hand side
With an attendance of about 50,000 people, lets just say the vast majority of them were Sydney Swan supporters. We were literally flooded by a sea of red. The reception wasn't any better when the dockers lost and we were stuck with the crowd on the way back home in a train. Actually, I can't really imagine what it would have been like on the way back if the Dockers had won.
I couldn't resist not taking this shot. So cute !!
