ARGH!!! I've lost count of how many times the bulbs in my room has died. The bulbs that they give us are so fucking lousy! It's frustrating!!! Once I go into my room to switch on the light, *poof* that darn thing won't work anymore.
This is the bulb they supply us with. Note the "Long Life" statement. IT'S LYING!!! Stupid thing won't last a few weeks!!!
Look at the part I circled. That's the cause of why this lousy bulb is no longer 'living'. Long life my arse... Once that fillamen breaks from the bigger piece of metal, this bulb is history. Such a frail thing.
These bulbs are really cheap, not worth much. But why can't the administration people think better and invest more on better bulbs rather than having tenants requesting for new bulbs every few weeks??? It's the examination period now, what if the bulb goes off in the middle of the night when I'm studying??? (I can only study at night, I'm nocturnal) Where the hell am I gonna get another bulb? So I came to the conclusion:
A picture speaks a thousand words.
Anyways, I had a great time shopping yesterday. Went out to Harbour Town (it's a place where you get all factory outlet shops=cheap cheap stuff). Got my laptop backpack, some shirts and souvenirs for people when I go over to NZ this semester break. Left the house at 10:30am to wait for my friend to pick me up and was greeted by a little surprise:
Can you see it? It's rather faint but it's there. Digi cams can never capture the true beauty of nature.
Anyways, I actually had a taste of "okay" 'char kuey teow'. It is definitely not as great as the ones you can find back in Msia but this one certainly had at least 70% of the original taste. My friend had the duck rice and it is good ^^ (I know this cause I stole a piece from him). But I didn't manage to take any pictures of it as we were too hungry and just gobbled everything. Hahaha... we're pigs.
After shopping, we decided to go to a japanese restaurant called Taka in the city.
No idea what tea was it they served but it was hot & free so it was good since we had just ran in the rain to get to the restaurant. *shivering*
I ordered a Chicken Katsu Don. Been dying for Japanese food for quite sometime and since my friend has been to this Taka several times and told me that the food was fantastic, I had my hopes up high. And the prices for the food was very very reasonable compared to the prices of food I've seen around.
Tada! Chicken Katsu Don. I ordered it small but it was still enough to fill me up nicely. Best part of all, it only costs $4.50. And it kicks the asses of all the lame excuse for Katsu Dons I've ever had. If you're ever in Perth, this is one great place to go.
Okay, after filling our tummies, we decided to go home. But there was really bad traffic so my friend took a detour and we ended up in King's Park. The sight was amazing... Wanna see?
The pic is kinda shakey cause I was in a moving car. And it was raining outside.
The view from inside the car. Kinda has a 'travelling' feel don't ya think?
The blob of bright light in the middle of the pic is actually cars on the highway. They were moving and it was like Christmas lights ^^. But somehow the pic didn't come out too nice. Oh well, life's like that.
