It feels like it was Friday only 5 minutes ago. Nevermind.
I had a mucho fun weekend. It started with a lazy night in on Friday complete with Chinese from the local take away. So. Good.
Then on Saturday after sleeping in ’til roughly one o’clock, I decided to drag my ass out of bed for a walk up to the farmer’s market in Marlay Park. It was a really nice crisp day and after going for brisk walk around the park, I undid all the good work by wolfing down an italian sausage. Ahem.
After a bit, I donned the gladrags and headed over to a friend’s where we caught the first bit of X Factor before legging it to meet the rest of the girls in Koh for dinner. Yum, yum, yum. I shared the peking duck for starters which was delicious (I could drink their soy sauce/paste, it was pure goodness) followed by the beef chili with sticky rice for the main. The dish was perfect and only spoiled by the fact that I had eaten too much of the duck before hand and couldn’t fit it all in. They have seriously genourous portions there. We topped the meal off with plenty of cocktails, my favourite being the strawberry mule.
After dinner, the night becomes slightly blurred. We popped into Bad Bobs (is it still called Bad Bobs? it’s bad anyway) but realised we’d have better craic back in the house. I never knew so many of my friends could sing, but maybe it was the alcamahol. One of the lads played the guitar until his fingers bled (literally, ugh) and eventually I stumbled home sometime and fell into bed.
There were two songs that were put on repeat that night and as a result, are taking it in turns to play in my brain non stop:
MGMT – Electric Feel (can’t embed, boo-urns)
BTW, while I’ve mentioned MGMT – if anyone had any spare tickets for their gigs on either night in the Ambassador, I will be your bestest friend ever and/or name my first born child after you. Anyone?
