Lazy Days

Although I have been using beautifully drawn long comics to describe my average life, I have decided to use photographs for this post. I believe this post rightfully deserves the photographs.

I believe that it is safe to assume that the majority of you have finished exams by now and of course, to de-stress after all those stressful days: after exam party! ...Or outings... I have chosen the latter. After all, what better way is it for people to bond and relax than through the mutual love for a good meal?


A Representation of One's Stress-Free Day

So to depict a typical "after exams stress free day", I have personally volunteered to reenact the entire process. And offered tips to avoid during days like these.

So like any other holiday, one would sleep in until the time for the miraculous "brunch", and that I followed suit, and woke up at 10:30. Did my toiletries, and felt pretty bright about myself...and felt pretty hungry. I halted and then contemplated my next actions, trying to depict as accurately as possible: the typical brunch of a college kid. Toast, was decided as the perfect median, and I think we all agree, that a typical Asian college student living in a Western country would have eaten this on a regular day of brunch.

However, I made a fatal tactical error. I had decided to make toast without the modern technological aid of a toaster. As someone who does not eat breakfast or brunch on a daily basis, or even a weekly basis, the following picture is what would happen if you leave a piece of bread in the grill for too long.

Hmmm burnt toast


Not cool. So this time I decided to babysit the grill so I can add the cheese on it to achieve my delicious brunch.


Perfect crispy golden brown toast with cheese

And it was successful.

Tip 1: Do not ever try to make toast without the aid of a toaster, and then forget about it in the grill for 10 minutes.

                                                                                                                                     

That same evening, there was a dinner event to celebrate the finishing of exams and a feeble attempt to destroy the trauma of the exams. We had chosen a HK style restaurant and ordered our respective dishes, a mixture of chinese, japanese, HK-style, malaysian, and italian cuisine.

My Dish. HK style

Chinese style omulet on rice.

I'm not actually sure which style this is, but if you look hard enough, there's a massive piece of chicken hidden there.


Unfortunately I only took a few photos to represent what was being devoured mercilessly at the dinner table that eventful evening. Fascinated by my dish (first picture), I had decided it was the most visually appealing dish out of everything that everyone ordered. However, with ever ups there must be downs, my precious friend decided to ruin my joy by telling me it looked like spew. Thank you, oh dear friend, but I've never spewed out spaghetti before in my entire short lived 19 years.

Tip 2: When one remains fascinated about the visual appearance of one's food, their friend would most likely ruin one's appetite out of sheer jealousy.

                                                                                                                                     

Proceeding dinner conversations, dessert was up at Pancake Parlour.

This delicacy costs $27.90 AUD

We told by the waitress that the 8 of us were very "involved" in devouring this delicacy.



I wonder why...

Tip 3: When sharing food, please do it in a civilized manner to prevent gazes of disgust and wonder from other tables.

                                                                                                                                     

If you have sincerely felt that this was a complete waste of your time. I apologise, but I, too, felt like my entire day was wasted, not to mention that I most definitely gained a few pounds.


So readers, what do you do when you finished exams and what kind of food do you like to indulge yourself in to relief the stress?

Me in a singlet...I don't think I'm buff enough

  3. Man I pity that piece of bread XD It's like molten larva or something hahaha

    What was that dish you ordered anyway? I don't think I've eaten it before. Hmmm I don't think I've even seen it before :O BUT YUMMMM that parfait thing sure looks good :D

    As for the answer to your question, I guess I'd usually catch up with friends and do some retail therapy or reward ourselves with good food. I like to stay home to cook and bake as well, try out different recipes, then EAT IT ALL UP!

    (Oh and no I don't get hay fever muahaha and yeh I go to Monash)

  7. Hahaha, I like telling my friend that their meal looks like spew. I get some satisfaction out of it somehow. Anyway, when I finish examinations, I tend to just laze at home like a couch potato. Nothing very exciting, aye? And I tend to eat snacks to relief my stress. :P

  10. Have you tried killing someone with that toast? It looks hard as a rock... ^.^ Second try looks a lot better though!
    I don't think the food looks ├╝ber-bad. Maybe the omurice... hmm yes.. ^.~ I hope dessert made up for it!

    To answer your question: I didn't have exams the past few weeks, simply because school here is organised differently from anywhere else, so it seems -___- But I usually sleep after my exams have ended. A nice long sleep...

    New follower here! Keep on posting, I like your way of writing ^.^
