My Weekend

Technically, this was last weekend but I haven’t had the chance to blog about it πŸ™‚

Last Sunday, the boyfriend & I headed into the city to take advantage of the good weather.

We got to the city pretty early so we had yum cha in Chinatown. No pictures here cos I was starving & quickly ate everything.

For Valentine’s Day, I got him vouchers to go jetboating πŸ™‚ & seeing as we’re nearing Winter here, I thought it was a good idea to go now before the weather got too cold!

Knowing that we were going to get wet, I just wore sunscreen & my Becca Watermelon beach tint.

Now, these extreme sports are not my thing at all but my boyfriend loves them! So I put on my big girl panties & got into that jetboat feeling nervous!

Those purple ponchos did not help at all. Everyone ended up being super soaked from head to toe. I must say – it was quite fun & exciting :D!

**Remember in my Becca post (here), I said I was going to test them re: water resistant? Well, I used Watermelon & it definitely held up after I was soaked in sea water. Left a really nice tint which looked really natural.**

After being soaked, we dried off for a bit at Circular Quay before heading to dinner at Mamak.

Mamak is a very popular Malaysian restaurant located in Chinatown. Every time we walk past this restaurant, without a fail, there’s a line out the door. Luckily, we managed to get there at about 5.35pm & were able to grab 1/3 remaining tables left. They open at 5.30pm for dinner! So lucky.

Roti canai $5.50 (the original roti. crispy on the outside, fluff on the inside. served with two curry dips & spicy sambal sauce.)

Chicken (or you can choose beef) satay $9 (for half a dozen) or $16 (for a dozen) (grilled over flaming charcoal for that authentic Malaysian flavour. served with a sweet & spicy peanut sauce.)

Maggi goreng $11.50 (a popular mee goreng variation using Maggi noodles.)
Mee goreng $11.50 (wok-tossed hokkien noodles with eggs, prawns, fish cake slices & fresh bean sprouts.) *this was really spicy!*
Teh tarik $3.50 (classic Malaysian sweetened tea, ‘stretched’ for a frothy topping.)
Teh ais $3.50 (ice milk tea)

Food was delicious. Even the boyfriend enjoyed it – must be good if a Malaysian thought so! Hehe. That’s my theory when it comes to food – if a Spanish person recommends a Spanish restaurant then it must be exceptionally good etc

At this point, I was so full to the point where I just wanted to roll out of the packed restaurant. My boyfriend had other ideas. He always leaves room for dessert so we (well, he dragged me) to Passionflower where we had our usual crepes with two ice creams – pandan & mango flavour.


That concludes probably one of the best weekends I’ve had so far this year. So eventful & so glad to have a boyfriend like mine πŸ™‚
