2010, I will not miss thee.

2010 was no doubt a year full of ups and downs which I'm glad is now over. Since I started this blog in May, I can only reflect upon my life within the last 7-8 months. Anything before that is very faint in my memory =( But in the second half of 2010, I

1. had my first alcoholic drink

2. met up with some awesome ladies

3. fell out of love

4. pulled so many all nighters that I now am a self-proclaimed pro

5. had my first frozen yogurt

6. got a job in retail (obviously not McDonald's)

7. fell in love... with food =D

8. fell in love again, with more food...

9. and more... okay you get the point.

I use to make resolutions but have found them to be pointless because realistically by the second week of January, I would have forgotten them already. But there are two goals that I hope to achieve on an everyday basis for the rest of my life:

1. Be happy. Be happy with who I am and who you are. Be happy so that I can wake up every morning with a smile on my face and go to sleep at night with a smile as well. Be happy with everything negative because there's always something positive to them.

2. Be healthy. For now this means to gain weight. This has been a goal of mine for the past 6-7 years. And no, I cannot just eat more. It's like telling someone who's overweight to eat less. If that works for everyone then obesity wouldn't exist.

Let's all say goodbye to 2010 now and welcome a new decade with warmth, love and fun. See you all in 2011!

Busy December

Current Songs: Hilary Duff - Happy // Rihanna - Slower to Heal

Hello cupcakes ^_^ I've been on holiday for two weeks now and this post is indeed over due. I have less time to blog now than when I still had school *sigh*. But speaking of school, here are some of my go-to meals from this past semester:

Muffin & Tea Special

I have a love and hate relationship with McDonald's. Yes it's unhealthy but how can you pass on the coffee and muffin special (in my case, tea and muffin special)? I've tried all the muffins and blueberry is hands-down my favourite. YUM!

Breakfast Happy Meal

If I'm early for class and not feeling too lazy, I'll have the breakfast happy meal, aka hot cakes happy meal. I substituted the toy with cookies.

Beef Udon

There's a (very) small Japanese Restaurant in the food court across the street from school. The employees are Japanese and sorry to disappoint sushi lovers but they don't serve sushi. Sometimes I order take-out because I have to be in school and do work. Otherwise, I sit in.

Curry Don

This is curry with rice, I order this with when I don't want to fuss with the udon broth (above).

Bulgogi & Mango Slush

My go-to meal. I've had about 20 of these in the past 6 months (no joke). The place is owned by Koreans so you know it's legit. I've tried bulgogis elsewhere but they just don't compare!

Cookie & Banana + Ice Cream

One of my latest late-night obsessions is banana with ice cream. It's a mix made in heaven.

100° Hot Pot (650 Highway 7 East)

And to finish off the semester, friends and I decided to go to all you can eat hot pot! The place was jam packed on a Thursday night; thank goodness for reservations. Hot pot is indeed messy. The good thing about all you can eat is unlimited desert!!! I had a scoop of coconut ice cream, a scoop of red bean ice cream and two orders of mango pudding (it was soooo good!). I will go back just for the pudding haha.

Hope you all are doing well and have finished your Christmas shopping already ^_^
Take care.
