Last Saturday was the last day of autumn and winter is officially here.
On Friday after work, we decided to go to eat at our local Vietnamese restaurant. I am a big fan of their rice paper rolls so we ordered that with quails and had Vietnam’s style fried rice. The food was nice and we both loved it. It was a great start of the weekend and we were relaxed walking back home. Sometimes not having to cook seems to take so much stress out of our life :).
On Saturday morning, I went for my usual run. I normally run with a my friend of mine and it is so easy to go the distance when you have company. We ran for over one and half hours and was glad that my step count reached over 11,000. That really made my morning as I am still counting my steps every day. It was drizzling at one point and I just loved the rain. I got to run in the rain after ages and it was quite refreshing. One of the reasons I love this walking track because we get a great view of the beach no matter what time of the year it is. It is always so rewarding.
After the run, we had our normal breakfast and waited for my SIL to drop off my nephew. We were babysitting for the afternoon and it was exciting for us. My nephew has grown up so much (gonna be 2 years next month) and is very cheeky. If he makes any mistake, he goes around and kisses everyone so no one will scold him. We had fun watching him, playing with him and running round with him.
In the evening, my SIL picked him up so we decided to go to city. It had been a sunny afternoon so it was the perfect evening to go and watch Vivid Sydney. I will share more pics from the day in another post.
Sunday started very slow as we had no plans. AS was still asleep and as it was cold outside so I decided to stay in bed and paint my nails. I normally do that once a week and I am learning to do it differently this each week. Here is what I ended up with.
When I was almost done, AS work up; I wanted to get out of the bed too but AS asked me to stay in bed and he will fix breakfast for us. I really like these gestures from him and having a lazy and spoiled weekend makes me feel cheerful. I reminded him that we have hardly anything left in the fridge so maybe we need to out for grocery but he assured me we are OK. Therefore, I watched an episode of Downton Abbey while he cooked breakfast. At the back of my mind I was wondering what we are having for breakfast as I knew we were out of bread.
So after almost an hour in the kitchen, AS called me and he served me this for breakfast.
Yes we had samosa and deviled eggs and tea. We also had some Jeri (sweets) to finish off the breakfast. I am very pleased as he used what we had to cook and I have to admit he is becoming better and better every day in the kitchen. In addition, he is so romantic and caring 🙂
It was raining in the afternoon so we stayed in, watched a movie and relaxed. By evening I was over with the indoors and stared to become grumpy and of course, my knight in shining armour came to the rescue again. He got a pair of socks for me and asked to put it on. The nhe started a salsa tutorial on YouTube and that was the start of our fun evening in.
AS and I had taken salsa classes before but separately so it was so much fun to learn again and practice together. As salsa dancing can be very intimate, I enjoyed it a lot. After an hour dancing I was in a happy mood as we had so much fun.
I have to admit he is a very good partner as you need male partner to lead and he was doing an excellent job.
Hope you guys had a great weekend too.
