Food: Off days

back when i was interning at comfort transportation, i had to work on weekends. my only off day was on a weekday - thursdays. oh man, i thank god those days were long gone. so on my off days, i'll definitely pamper myself with nicer food. sean was really cooperative too. he actually took offs on thursdays just to accompany me, and go on dates with me. well actually going out on weekdays are good? cheaper lunches, cheaper movie tix and town's not as crowded!! but i'll definitely love to have weekends to myself. btw i took those two picas otw to work one weekend. i was early, so i alighted earlier, took a stroll along the park before walking to my workplace. i had to, because i just hate doing nothing but going to work on weekends... at least i've got some of my time well spent.

as i was saying.... yes. nicer food. i took sean out on a groupon date - i bought a groupon deal to full house ($19.80 for 2) as well as a groupon deal to the mint museum of toys ($14 for 2) on separate occasions. decided to use them both of the same day. i sure do sound cheapskate, boo.
sean and i have been saving up for our aussie trip, so we havent been splurging on food that much lately. been eating at home more frequent, and will have to think twice, hesitate even before heading for cafe grub sigh. k with that in mind, i've been trying to dine at cheaper alternatives, look for deals/vouchers, or even uob/dbs card promotions and so on. tsk life of a poor girl, but i won't forgo yummy food. what to do?? oh well, but it's all worth it. just to clarify, i don't usually purchase food deals from deal websites because i dont think they're trustworthy. i only purchase when i've heard of the resto and have it on my list-of restos-to-visit. other than that, i WILL NOT buy food deals. and i do not encourage anyone to purchase just any resto deals. if you want quality food, just bear this in mind, "you get what you pay for". as simple as that.

just looking at the decor makes me happy, it's like a little girl's room kinda decor. been wanting to check out pique nique since last year, and we finally did... ikr, after so long? and sigh, my list (of resto to visit) keep on growing, and i clearly dont know when i'll be able to clear them all. maybe i wont even get to. oh well...
