It’s a long weekend here, so we didn’t have our usual Chinese class this morning. So we slept in again 👍
After brunch at home, N went and got a massage, while I went to a local coffee shop and had an iced coconut coffee! That was different. A bit sweet for my liking, but still quite nice. But bloody expensive (almost S$9!! 😲). It better have been milk squeezed out of a fresh coconut for the price I paid for that coffee! They have different types of coffees on their menu, so I’ll have to make my way through it. But at those prices, I ain’t going there every day!
And then in the evening, we headed down to a sports bar to watch the France vs Australia World Cup match. We booked a table and specifically requested for a view of the tv showing the World Cup match. I’m glad we booked coz the place was busy as. Plus there was an Australia vs Ireland rugby match happening as well, and they were showing that on another tv, so the place was overflowing with people – and they didn’t have enough staff to cater for the demand. They would’ve raked even more in if they had enough staff to take all the orders. Particularly the drinks. They underestimated how much the Irish and the Aussies drink 😂 Great atmosphere, though. It was nice to see Aussie camaraderie in a foreign country. Ah how sport brings people together 😊 We’ll have to try and come down a few more times over the next few weeks of the World Cup.
That is, if we’re here! I’ve decided to join N for some of his HK trip, so we’ll be over there for the Denmark vs Australia match. I may miss some or most of the match, though, as my plane lands at 7pm and the game starts at 8pm. But I’m planning on going with just carry on luggage, so at least I’ll have one less thing to deal with at the airport. And their train from the airport into town is freaking awesome, so I do have a fair chance of catching some of the match 😊
And then we have the Vietnam comp coming up too. Wahhh… Too much disruption is throwing off my/our routine! 😩 But I do actually like change, so I’m not really complaining 😉 I know others who would hate this sort of upheaval in their lives, but I get a kick out of it. Each to their own, right?! 😊
