After ten weeks, my workplace has survived our summer schedule. Next week, school starts back up for the kids, so we’re transitioning everything with that. I spent this whole week doing things here and there to get ready, and then we all came in on Saturday to put in extra hours to get more things done. After that bit, I met up with Bunny-unnie, and we went on another crazy adventure of ours!
But before I write about our adventures, have a pretty puzzle photo. I bought this for my mum, but we ended up putting it together, with me putting 95% of it together. Apparently, when I work on a puzzle, I get absorbed into it. Funny that I did most of it since I got this for my mum to do. She’s worried about getting Alzheimer’s, and with her disliking reading and writing, I figured puzzles would be something she could do. However, she doesn’t like them much. Oh, Mum, then what can you do for cognitive exercise?!
Time to write about my after-work adventures! Bunny-unnie and I decided to return to the Lobster Bar, but we had about an hour wait again, but this time we went to a nearby coffee shop. It was a cute little place, with some neat interior design, and this typewriter really caught my eye. I’m a sucker for antique things, and this typewriter is no exception.
We also saw this adorable, huge, fluffy dog in the cafe. It was one of those dogs that’d greet the customers and then ignored you :( Still, though, it was so cute!
After about an hour, we got a call from the Lobster Bar blokes, and we went back. I reunited with the grilled cheese lobster sandwich. So good. The seasoning and sauce they use for the sandwich were tres delicious. The fries and salad were great. I only wished my digestive system liked it as much as my tastebuds did!
Feeling content and full, we stopped by the Foreign Food Mart to pick up a couple of things, and we bought some bread at Bread and Jam. We then decided to try this coffee shop called Alex the Coffee Lab. I read some good reviews about the place, so I was curious to try it. Unfortunately, I was not pleased to see that an iced latte was 2000 won more than the hot latte, and their coffee had a fruity flavour to it — in fact, I told Bunny-unnie that it reminded me of blueberry. It wasn’t bad, per se, but I’m certainly not going back there if they are going to charge that much for ice!
Bunny-unnie found this jewellery store yesterday, so I wanted to check it out. That place had some decent jewelleries, and the owner there was so nice. I got these two bracelets for 20,000 won. Originally, the silver bracelet was 15,000 won, but I asked her to remove this ugly triangle charm and change the clasp, and she lowered the price to 10,000 won. Then she gave me another 3,000 won discount on the other one, bringing the price from 13,000 to 10,000 won. She also gave Bunny-unnie a 5,000 won discount on her purchase, so thumbs up to this lady!
Finally, Bunny-unnie and I had a very late dinner at Le Saigon. We both got the beef pho. Oh, nom, nom. Then we ended the night by walking around my neighbourhood. Now I’m home feeling quite exhausted. It’d been a long, but fun day. However, my bed’s calling me. No, make that yelling. My bed’s yelling for me!
