Photo & caption update XXXVIII

Someone please help me - university is starting soon and I'm scared because I still don't know what I'm majoring in after this semester. 

Between my last post and this one I had the pleasure of enjoying a very, very lovely Valentine's Day. Jason surprised me with half a dozen long stemmed roses before taking me to have a couple of bites at the Eat Street Markets. Oooooh my gosh if you're in Brisbane and haven't been yet you NEEEED to go. We ended up liking it so much that we cancelled our actual dinner reservations. My piece of advice is to go early. I got there at 4:30pm (about half an hour after it starts) and there weren't many people but two hours later when we left, it was paaacked with people lining up for everything. 

My little fluff ball of joy.

Finally tried out Bombay Dhaba at West End. If you go during Monday-Friday for lunch you can get any curry for $10 and then either rice for $1 or naan bread for $2. The butter chicken was sooo sweet but I loved it nonetheless. The only disappointing part was the chicken because it was quite hard and dry but I think the curry definitely made up for it.

Adrii adopted her first child - Mr Teddy. He was the last one and she couldn't get him the day before so she took him to the top floor of the store and chucked him under a heap of stock so that no one else would find him HAHA. 

Caro the Starbucks addict. 

Dinner at New Shanghai.

Order from Urban Outfitters arrived!

Most satisfying dinner at Sukachi mmmmm dat sushi. 

With Nina at Teresa's 18th birthday! 

Jason's Valentine's Day gift! He did a post about it on his own blog here.

Chicken shu mai dumplings and a mini korean burger.

Love potion smoothie, chicken skewers, curry puffs and nutella filled crepes.

Lined up for nearly half an hour for these mocktails but daaaayum they were so good. 

Lychee and pink lady apple mocktails!

Wagyu and onion Tasmanian snag. 

Eating mint chocolate DipnDots while we watched a cruise ship depart into the sunset. 

Drove up to Mt. Gravatt look out. 

The roses started drooping today so I decided to press them. 

Sent Adrii Valentine's day flowers which arrived a friggen day late wtf (hence her hand gesture HAHAH).

Mr Teddy and his baby brother. 

Deep fried ice cream from Little Singapore and dinner at Viet Corner. 

Went on my first fishing trip in years to Port of Brisbane with some of the guys from high school.

Grateful for all day breakfast places! Adrii and I had grilled fish and a breakfast burrito at Paw Paw Cafe. 10/10 would definitely go again. 

I hope all of you enjoy the rest of your week! xo, s.

Happy 300th post on srhtrng :) If you've been following me on Twitter than you would've seen random bursts of excitement about how I got hired to market for ASOS. I originally applied for a position with Student Marketing Australia and when I somehow got to the last round of interviews I found out that you could choose to promote campaigns from Telstra, Commonwealth Bank, Officeworks or ASOS if you were hired. Luckily for me the recruitment staff saw something apparently valuable to their business and gave me a position with my first campaign of preference wtaf? (seriously, why me!?) 

It's only a short term position (will be done with the campaign by the end of the month) but nonetheless I'm so excited that I still can't believe I'm able to type this in a blog post. For those of you wondering what I'll actually be doing - I'll be promoting ASOS at The University of Queensland's St Lucia Campus on Market Day (26 Feb). Drop by because I pinky swear that we are giving away a tonne of stuff which I hope I get as well oml.

Dinner for Jiwon at Ahmets before she left Brisbane. 

Mango bingsoo and chocolate fondue from Passion Tree.

Cleaned up my room and transferred the majority of my clothes onto an open rack.

Teriyaki chicken curry from Kadoya and Maccas dates.

Dinner at the Tran household.

Late CNY celebrations at Jason's place with his family! His dad kept offering me alcohol oml.

Finally got to try Lychee Lounge and oh my the drinks are definitely difficult to swallow. The tapas taste delicious but I'd probably skip the alcohol from this bar unless you're used to some really potent tasting stuff. 

Creme brulee from Freestyle 

Dinner dates at Hogs Breath.

Went to Coco Jungle for dessert for the first time in months yummm.

Went to Miel before Varady's 19th and Jason loved it so much that he didn't talk to me until he finished eating his burger rudeee HAHAHA. 

Teresa the amazing smelling love bug and Jsn the Victoria's Secret smelling boyfriend. 

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week! xo, s.
