In the Train..

My friend, Azia and I took the train to and back from Dublin. We booked our tickets online for our journey. On our way back to Cork, we made it to the train station just in time to get our tickets and board the train. We booked the best seats, with tables because we had our laptops with us.

So, we board the train, looks for our seats with our over-sized back packs (due to all the shopping). When we arrived at our designated seats (with our names on the LCD), they were a couple and their daughter sitting in our pre-booked seats. So, we did what anyone else would do, tell them politely that they were in our seats, and explained that we had booked our tickets online. We wouldn't have made a big commotion about it if the lady would just apologize and say something like, "my bad", "we didn't know", or "we didn't see the names" etc.. We were pissed off because this lady was so rude and told us that we should have been early so that they could have looked for other seats... ??? WTH?? What was the point of having online booking if you were to come early to get good seats?? Especially when it is Sunday after X-mas holiday.

The thing that ticked me off was a) they were rude to start off with, b) only the father apologized, but not the rude lady c) the fact that she blamed us for being ignorant..

Shop 'til I Drop..

1st night in Dublin, meeting up with Didi~!!

What did i do during the holiday?? Well, it was all about shopping and food~!!!
I went to Dublin and hang out with friends. We had our own little X-mas lunch, eating the most delicious roasted chicken I've ever tasted, J. Oliver's style, with potato gratin (yum2! drooling~!)
On Boxing day, we had a little road trip up to Belfast and splurged ourselves on a shopping spree~!! It was a shopping heaven in the UK really, due to the economy glitch (1 euro = 1 pound).. Couldn't hope for more!
It was more beneficial for my friend, who's expecting.. After calculating all the expenses including the petrol and all-stuff-u-need-for-a-newborn, they still save a lot more than shopping in Dublin.. Cool eh?
The next day was the starting of winter sale in Ireland, so another round of impulsivity and recklessness. =P. Some of the x-mas gifts I bought to shower myself with are: Mango jacket; formal wear for clinics from Dorothy Perkins, Zara, Jane Norman; gladiator from Oasis; skinny jeans from DKNY; Givenchy perfumes; Spotlight dress from Warehouse which I had lay my eyes on since April and etc etc etc.. =P
The last night in Dublin, we went to a Japanese restaurant and I had the most filling plate of sushi.. yum2~!

Baby, it's cold outside...

The weather this time of year always makes me feel like singing this song. I've found a video on YouTube by mss12000, where he sings the male part.. So, this is my duet version with him.. Enjoy~!!

So, I was walking home from dance class on Wednesday night. I was walking alone half way from the Mardyke Arena back home. At this one T-junction near Farranlea Hall, I saw a car turning onto the main street with 5 suspicious-looking guys and the windows rolled down. I had an instinct of something is going to happen. Thank God, they did nothing. Unfortunately, there was a 2nd car behind them and full of uncivilized guys! One of them, who was in the front passenger's seat threw an egg at me.. Thank goodness, I had the instinct and was fast enough to elude the possibility of staining and stinking my brand new Baby Phat jacket!! You don't wanna know what came out of my mouth at that very moment..

Today, I had a meeting with my supervisor in one of the hospitals in the city centre (which is going well by the way). I walked back home in the pouring rain in my high-heeled boots. At another T-junction on College Road, a middle-aged man on a bicycle was coming out from Brookfield Health Centre (health complex of UCC), and this car was passing by and this stupid guy (oops, i mean uncivilized guy) in the car threw a small carton of milk at the guy on the bike. Poor thing, I saw the thing right in front of my eyes. Thank goodness, they didn't threw the milk at me but unfortunate for that man.

This thing has been going on for years, throwing out nasty stuff from a moving car. My friends and I had encountered several episodes. At first, we thought they were being racist because most of the time the victims are foreigners. But I've seen a few cases where they just threw randomly at people walking, regardless of whether you're coloured or white. Stupid uncivilized people, they are... I bet these people are mostly college students as this part of the city is swarmed with them. You're supposed to be bright bunch of people but sadly you're not.. Pity you..
