Airfare hunting has been fairly…un-successful but I’m gonna continue trying nonetheless. We desperately need to get out of town!!! And with the husband not being able to sleep lately, with heart palpitations, its a darn sign that a retreat must be in place!
Yesterday I bumped into a long time friend I got to know from someone I knew from Zouk which I knew from someone else. It was amazing because we hadn’t bump into each other in the longest time and there I was – with extra weight and a new hairstyle since those clubbing days – and he remembered me enough to stand right in front of me on the escalator (which I got a little irritated initially not knowing it was a friend) to be right in my face. The next amazing thing was that he was going to leave his current company and start a biz with that someone from Zouk! And they were going to do innovative stuff which I’ve been exploring for one of my clients for a while now. How cool is that – finally finding a contact who happens to be a friend who happens to work 5 minutes within reach. Hah!
And today I got to enjoy a fabulous lunch of dine and unwind with a good ol friend at Hand Burger. That place serves mean burgers man! Yum. I so have to go back and check it out with ah-choo (aka. BR).
Work’s has still been about discovering new things: good and bad. As I climb higher, I now realize that the load does get a lot heavier, and so does expectations. I only pray that I survive.
I’ve also been taking a break off sports, against my will. Which explains the weight gain. And in order to be able to enjoy the food this Christmas, I so have to start signing up with a gym real soon.
Apart from that, I’m going to TRY fitting in some bit of drinking, clubbing, catching up, dining with a couple of friends at my attempt to have a more enjoyable after-work life.
I can’t wait for Friday already.
