life, lovely weekends and girl time...

Just had the loveliest weekend...

Despite the 8pm work call on Friday night! (a downside of working in a global company), I spent the rest of my Friday night with Pauline, Shwu, Odmaa, Nat and Sandra celebrating Nat's hens.  The Mr and the boys were away in Jakarta for Alex's bucks so us girls planned our own fun.   First stop was Maison Ikkoku (I previously blogged about their yummy coffee earlier).  Since my first visit, they have opened a men's boutique and a fantastic little rooftop bar.  We ended up staying there all night after making friends with the bar tender and revelled in a fun night of gossip, chatting, yummy cocktails, bubbles, shots and chicken wings.  You always need a good midnight snack stop for the way home so we headed to Kampong Glam Cafe for late night/early morning milo, 100 plus, kway teo, chicken curry and rice and noodles.

The late night festivities of Friday meant my Saturday had a bit of a late start.  But it was a  Saturday completely alone and all to myself with no plans.  It was amazing.  Skype date with D + J in Hong Kong, brunch at my local kopitiam for kopi and chicken macaroni and then a Saturday arvo all to myself. I bought two new dresses, read books, listened to tunes, watched old movies, played on pinterest, read the internet :)

To round out the weekend, today was spent having brunch at Spruce with Jo and AM planning baby showers, hens nights and weddings, skype date with my mum, dad and the two sisters and riding Betsy down to the river to have dinner at Uomasu and drinks at em by the River with the girls.   Lots of wonderful girl time, maybe the boys should go away more often? ;)  xx

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Today I need to concentrate and write a briefing paper for my boss' boss.  Being in an open plan office it means putting on my headphones and turning on Spotify to listen to their Afternoon Acoustic playlist.  It's my go-to playlist and features this sweet little tune from John Mayer...
