Ferrets, FOOD, Uncategorized GOOGLE ROCKS! 26 May 2007

Did the Confident Negotiator course on Thurs/Fri last week, so WATCH OUT dudes, I can now negotiate to get whatever I want from you. Muahahhaa!! Erm. Yes.

Anyway, I was a bit nervous that I’d be spending 2 whole days at the course, without internet *shudders*. I CAN’T SURVIVE LIKE THAT!! But fortunately, I figured out to get a Gmail client downloaded onto my mobile, and better, yet, Gmail calender is now mobile-enabled! WHEW!! Between the 2, I could survive the 2 days without having to go through cold turkey 😉


Gmail on my mobile!

Gmail calender, too!


Oh, and I went to that Hunter Connection’s indian takeaway again for a quick dinner on Fri night. I was after a lamb curry, but it was $10.90 for a box if it. I thought it was a bit big, and the lovely lady offered to give me a “half full” one for $6.90. Cool! So I agreed and got that. But then she pretty much filled it to the brim anyway, how nice is that? Then I got a Garlic Naan for $2.50. So the total should be $9.40, right? But I gave her a $10 note and she gave me $2 change. I told her she’d given me more change that she should, and she just smiled and said “No it’s OK!” and that was that! So nice 🙂 So I got a mega dinner for $8, so much so that I actually had leftovers. Super place, I’m going to have Indian food for dinner all the time now, hehe!

Lamb curry and garlic naan


And I last posted pics of Misty sleeping on me, so here’s some of Star:



Anyway, having a lazy Saturday today.. went to the gym next door for Body Attack (absolutely love this class) and Body Balance (mix of tai-chi and yoga) then I’m heading there again for an Aromatherapy massage – the rooms are gorgeous and it’s around $70 for a 1-hr massage.. 80% of which can be claimed back from my health cover (thanks eBay!) so if they’re good, I’ll be going there all the time 😛

      It’s hard to find it done well around here, as it’s often westernised.. like Butter Chicken! So I like these guys’ curries.. they’re soo good :)~

    I know you how you feel about the internet but I am glad that you got on the phone! The food looks good and Star and Misty are cute!

    BTW There is a meme that I want you do on my lj and keep it spreading!

    btw…that magazine ad you were looking at with star for the revlon’s sugar sugar — that stuff is awesome! it makes your lips look so pretty. too much of it makes it too sparkly though. just a little is perfect. *^^*

    curry place!

    Hi. I know the curry place as well! its the little one downstairs next to the Malaysian place. Everytime i go past it i always notice how authentic the curry aroma is and keep reminding myself to try the butter chicken there. Unfortunately, i always tailor my lunch route going past it last so i end up getting chinese from hunters connection upstairs anywyz. Oops hehehe. – Di

      Yours should be quite high too I think! Most corporations offer really great health cover 😀

        hmmm my health cover is pretty good, but i don’t remember seeing massages covered, unless you have a health reason for it. i wonder if insomnia from work stress is a good reason…?

    Lookit Star, out like a light!

    It would be handy to have access to my email like that while I’m away, but I don’t think I’m savvy enough, heh. I think I’ll just try to log into my Hotmail now and then.

    Mmmm, hope you had a good massage!

      Star’s a really heavy sleeper, it’s quite funny cos you can move her and she’ll still be zonked 😉

      Hope you have fun with your shopping today!

    • beverly posted on May 27, 2007 at 8:35 am

      Yeah it’s 80% which is great! I think I should make it a point to go every 2-4 weeks to make the most use out of it 🙂
