So, How Was Your Weekend?

Happy Monday, folks!

Instead of starting the week with a product review, I thought I’d share what my weekend was like with you. I’m rather tired of writing reviews today so let’s talk about something else for a change, eh?

How was your weekend? If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that my last 4 days have been pretty darn awesome. Remember last week when I told you I was having a guest over for a few days? Lo and behold, it was Paris B!

Paris B in Melbourne Mid November 2013

Clockwise: Selfies at South Yarra station, the 3 bag ladies, yummy pasta at Chadstone’s Bouchee, doing what bloggers do (image courtesy of LeGeeque), delicious lamb sandwich at Dukes Coffee, my friend’s lovely daughter.

There had been heaps of eating, a bit of shopping (I may have gone a little overboard with candles) and catching with good friends. When you get 2 bloggers staying under the same roof for a few days, there’s bound to be a lot of bloggie and makeup discussions. We even came up with topics to blog about! “Ooooh we should blog about this!” and “OMG that’s exactly how I feel! Let’s blog about it!“. Oh yeah, bloggie talk. It happens. :P

Melbourne City to Sea Fun Run November 2013

The weather was glorious on Sunday and it was great timing too because that was when Tim went for the Melbourne City to Sea 14km fun run. There were over 13,500 runners in the city that day and boy was it crowded. Such interesting characters to see running though. I saw a lady wearing a body suit with an anatomically-correct neck to ankle print of the muscles in the body. I saw Lego Man running (wearing a huge Lego head). There were superheroes, a lady in a chicken costume (complete with chicken head and body of feathers) and even Captain Jack Sparrow in full pirate garb (he was even holding a rubber knife!). Even though I didn’t run, it was fun enough watching people run. Next year, LeGeeque and I may tackle a 5km run. Baby steps, people. Baby steps. :P

Melbourne City to Sea Fun Run November 2013

I’ll be replying comments and emails, and doing some housekeeping on the backend of the blog today before tackling on product reviews for tomorrow. Sometime this week, I’ll be going to the hospital for a laparoscopic procedure. It’s just going to be a quick one (I hope!) so will be in and out in a few hours. I’ll tell you more about that soon but for now, if you’ve had it before, here comes the million dollar question: does it hurt? I know I’ll be under general anaesthetic, which I’ve had before, but oh you know. It’s still something to worry about nevertheless.

So that’s my weekend and coming week for you. How was yours? What do you usually do on your weekends? I’m usually very curious as to what other people do on their weekends off. :)

Have a good one!

    good luck with your procedure! ive had an endoscopy before and being under general aesthetic was the best feeling in the world…basically like the greatest sleep you’ll ever have……I think i was a little in love with my anesthesiologist by that point lol.

    1. Tine

      Thanks Shamim. I had a great sleep. Must have been the Australian Travellers mag I read a few minutes before going in because I dreamt of walking on a AMAZING beach! :P

    Gosh, my weekend was fun but not as fun as yours. Wish I were jogging under palm trees instead watching the maple trees drop their leaves for the coming winter. ;) Had a fun dinner with friends last night, and I drank one glass of red wine too many, but luckily I wasn’t driving! Good luck this week with your procedure. Usually they give you a different type of general anesthesia for a short(isn) procedure, but very effective and you don’t feel groggy or sick when you wake up. Hope it’s a breeze!

      Aww between you and me, I’d rather be watching maple trees drop their leaves in autumn. My favourite season of the year! The GA went all right. As usual, great great sleep :P

      Thanks lovely. The procedure went well. Will share the results when the time is right :)

    Hello Tine! Good luck with your procedure! :) and your weekend sounds like fun fun and more fun! :)

    By the way, Tim looks a bit familiar. Say, did he ever go to an international school in Malaysia and was he a prefect before? :p

    1. Tine

      Thanks Ting! It went just fine.
      Hahaha looks like you know Tim! Yes and yes ;)

      1. Ting

        Yes I did, not very well though. We were in different classes. I remembered him as a quiet guy. Always read a novel during prefect lunch duty. :P

        1. Tine

          Hahaha nerd! :P

    Looks like you and Paris had a great time! My weekend was boring. I just stayed home and did nothing interesting.

    Good luck with the procedure!

      So good to have PB in Melbourne. Finally! Now is there any way I can get you here too? :P

  7. Issa

    good luck on your procedure… anyway, I brought my son to an amusement park and we really had a lot of fun ! :)

    1. Tine

      Aww I love amusement parks! I’m the kind who’s still screaming my head off when going on rollercoaster rides in my 30s :P

      1. Issa

        Same here! I guess we’re forever young at heart :)

  8. Sabine

    I’m so glad to hear your procedure went well – I envy you for just having a great sleep under GA, I’m always a bit loopy when I wake up (I’ve been known to say and do things I don’t remember later!) ;)
