Yesterday, after sooooooooo long (got half a year or not?), all 7 of us housemates sat together for dinner! It's been quite a while since we last combined our dining tables for a housemates dinner (the amount of food was scary hahaha). It was a really great, indescribable feeling. Brought back so much memories and made me realize how fast time has really passed. It felt like just a while ago when we reached Brisbane, clueless about everything and now we're counting down the days we'll be back in Malaysia. Why so fast?! Anyway, the conversation throughout dinner was about working out and hot guys and girls in the gym. Lol. Oh and we got to touch Ivan's 6 packs too hahaha! It was my first time touching real abs and it felt...... very weird indeed. Hmm.

Hopefully we'll have more times like this before we fly back to Malaysia! :)

Once upon a time during dinner. 

Once upon a time when I was bored studying.

And then... I got extra bored (and vain).

Got up early in the morning yesterday (5.45am) to go to Southbank for Parkrun! It's a weekly event where more than 300 people run together for 5km. It's quite fun! The cutest thing was that two kids (about 5 years old?) led the warming up session hahaha. So funny to see all adults following two kids' movements. 

Warming up together.

My paced improved from 8:39 mins per km to 7:22 mins per km for a 5km run! Duration improved from 44 mins to 37 mins too! Yayyyyyy! *\(^o^)/* I really pushed myself this time and it's quite unbelievable for me considering that I didn't exercise at all in my entire life befor coming to Brisbane. *hides*

Legs felt all wobbly after the run lolol. But still, selfie! 

With Lavi, Jinyee and Tim.

With Lavi in the ferry on the way home! 

After we reached home, we rested for about 20 mins (while waiting for Joseph to bathe hahaha) before going to West End Market for grocery shopping! So much to carry again. >< Went back home after that to leave everything we bought and headed to Toowong right after. We went a bit crazy shopping this time! So so much to carry home! Who needs to go to the gym when you can do some body-building every weekend by shopping for grocery? Lol. 

KO-ed when I reached home (for real, no more going out) and slept till 7pm. Woke up and studied for a while and KO-ed again at 10.30pm. Hahaha so early! Barely did any studies yesterday oh well. :/

Unglam selfie of the day. 

Had a workout session with Jon, Lavi, Tim and Jinyee just now and it was so funny! Couldn't stop laughing especially at Jon. I laughed more than I exercised. -.-

Goodnight people! :)

Picture was taken yesterday but I had the same thing for breakfast today too! Super addicted to avocado nowadays I don't know why! I'm loving healthy breakfast like this. :) 

Speaking of avocado, I made my own avocado jam! I used 2 avocados and one and a half tablespoon of honey. It turned out very good! An amount like this can last me about... 4 days! 

My baked vegetables for lunch yesterday. Intended to buy zucchini but mistakenly bought cucumber instead. *cries* Everyone who knows me knows that I hate cucumbers (although not more than bean sprouts) but I've decided to give it a try and not waste food. Still couldn't really accept the taste so I had to eat them with tomato to kill the smell. Yuck.

I went jogging again yesterday! Aimed to jog for 5km but only managed to jog for 3.3km because I got tired very quickly. I don't know why though. I've thought of three reasons to it : 

1. The weather was too bloody hot. I sweated profusely after jogging for a while.
2. I was very hungry (and hence the lack of energy). Was thinking of not jogging but decided to go on with my plan anyway. 
3. My stamina sucks. (I strongly think this is the main reason)

Well, anyway! This was my record for yesterday. Average pace per km improved but I know it's not comparable with my previous record because the distance is not the same but oh well. 

Shall try my best again when I have the spirit to jog again (hopefully soon)! Pretty busy nowadays. *sighs*

Got tagged by two friends to write #20factsaboutme on Instagram. 

It took me quite long to churn out facts about myself. I didn't realize that I actually do not really understand myself that well. Anyway, here's what I came up with : 

1. Only child. Always wished to have siblings. To be more exact, an elder brother or an elder sister. πŸ™πŸ‘‰πŸ‘­πŸ‘«πŸ™ˆ
2. Love my parents to bits. πŸ‘ͺπŸ’–3. Have an absolutely adorable poodle, Poofie, named after my long-lost puppy plushie. πŸΆπŸ’ž
4. Born on Christmas Eve. πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ‘Ό
5. Afraid of all kinds of insects in the universe. πŸ›πŸπŸœπŸžπŸ’€
6. Very, VERY easily frightened. You touch my back when I'm alone, I shout. People who watch horror movies with me get terrified by my out-of-nowhere-and-for-no-reason banshee-like screams, not the movie. πŸ™ŠπŸ™ŠπŸ™Š
7. Used to hate eating fish but now, SALMON IS LIFE. 🐟🐟🐟
8. Winter is my favorite season. Free air-conditioning wooooo! ❄️⛄️
9. I go to theme parks not for the rides but for the atmosphere and for staring at people (and helping friends to look after their belongings πŸ˜‚). πŸ™†
10. I love Arashi and Japan, a lot. Been on a homestay program to Japan woots! Definitely one of the highlights in my life. πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅
11. I know Taiwanese dramas are lame, but I still love watching them anyway. πŸ’
12. Most of my clothes in my wardrobe are black. ⚫️
13. I miss home. Can't wait to go back! 🏑
14. I love sushi and spaghetti. 🍣🍝
15. Absolutely hate bean sprouts. πŸ™…
16. Socially awkward due to low self-esteem. Still trying to fix this.  πŸ‘‰πŸ‘ˆ
17. Common misconceptions by people about myself : Cheryl is not in my IC and I am not from a Chinese school. πŸ™†
18. I love looking back at old photos because they bring back such wonderful memories. πŸ‘­πŸ‘«πŸ‘ͺπŸ’•
19. I like to multi-task. I can't stand doing one thing at a time. πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ
20. I love heart-to-heart talks and getting to know a person better. ❤️πŸ‘‰❤️

After posting this, more things came into my mind but some are so embarrassing I decided not to reveal them. Hehe.
