Blind Date @Sketch, Mayfair

December 6, 2013 Leave a comment

With modern technology enabling finding true love through virtual space with just a lift of a finger, which I had heard so much about, I couldn’t wait to try it out for myself the day after I landed back in singlehood.
So you pick a decent looking guy who doesn’t have a topless photo of himself as his profile pic. I try to make sure he has a job that requires an average IQ and someone who has less than 50% chance of being a serial killer or rapist.
Then you put on a brave made up face in a central location on a weekd night, just for a casual drink or coffee so you can run like an Olympian sprinter when he turns out to be a complete egg.
My first exciting adventure takes me to Sketch bar which friends have told me about regarding their imfamous egg shaped bathrooms. When I got there I realised I had walked past this place a dozen times without even knowing it’s the place where you can relieve yourself in a oval shaped white box.
The drinks are expensive as expected with its location. Their deco is nice enough in the bar, a bit too dark but it made my date look quite handsome. The music loud enough to make you have to lead right in to your date’s ears, lucky I have pretty attractive ears.
After a couple of drinks, time to move on indicating it’s going decent enough to spend another hour across each other at a dinner table. The restaurant was very busy so we went to another place.
Upon exit, we had to visit the infamous white shaped things up the stairs. But we were stopped mid way and that apparently there are male and female divisions – not unisex. So much for checking out the bathroom together, and the rest is history.

Recent hobby

This is what I have been doing in the last few months hence neglecting this blog a little.

View from the top

When I take a deep breath on top of a mountain I’ve just climbed, I feel I have been rewarded for all my efforts.

When I look around the magnificent views around me, I feel this world is so harmonious and trouble-free.

When I admire the wonderful works of the creator, I feel so tiny and insignificant on this enormous piece of land.

When I peek at the aerial view of the city I’m landing in or leaving from, it brings overflowing emotions running down my face.

One lonely journey

January 25, 2013 1 comment

Life is just one lonely journey.

You are surrounded by people all the time whether it be on the bus, at work and even at home. But do any of them make an impact on your life?

When you go through tough times, your close friends might say ‘I know how you feel’, but do they really?!?!

You might even have a long term partner who you do life with, but in the end the one single person you spend most time with is just yourself.

The ultimate standard

What is patient?

What is kind?

What does not envy?

What does not boast?

What is not proud?

What is not rude?

What is not self-seeking?

What is not easily angered?

What keeps no record of wrongs?

What does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth?

What always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perserveres?

What never fails?

It is love.

Peruvian delicacy – Deep fried guinea pig

October 25, 2012 6 comments

As gruesome as it sounds, it is actually very tasty.

The meat is pink and very soft.

This particular one was marinated with herbs so it has extra flavour, especially the skin.

Our tour guide said the best part is the head.

I tried it, not too bad at all.

Peruvians only eat this for celebrations but tourists can have it any time!
