I ended up cooking/baking nothing. Nothing special anyway.
When I was staring at my laptop screen on Friday evening, I thought I would be having a relaxing weekend. Turns out I forgot that it was going to be a weekend jam packed with activities.
First, I had to house hunt. Yes, house hunt, again. I’ll probably elaborate in a future blog post. That alone already took up half of my weekend in the form of waiting for viewing appointments and viewing appointments. The waiting was the worst and most time consuming part by the way. The actual viewing typically takes 15 to 20 minutes, but waiting for the property agent to arrive typically takes 30 minutes or more.
This is something that baffles me till this day. Usually the agents would be early or punctual to score a good first impression, be it insurance agents or mutual fund agents or get-rich-quick agents or health supplements agents. Property agents are the exception. I’ve dealt with probably 20 or more property agents throughout my years of renting in Penang, they just never seem to be punctual. They would make appointments, send you soft reminders an hour before time, and then 9 out of 10 would proceed to be late for 30 minutes or more. Is that an industrial practice or what??
Second, I had to get a hair cut. Nothing interesting there. Moving on…
Third, I had to go to the cinema to watch 2 movies. Jason Bourne and Suicide Squad.
I’ll let you in on a little secret: I have not watched the previous 3 Bourne movies with Matt Damon in it. Jason Bourne was a first for me. It wasn’t as exciting as I expected. I thought some of the action sequences were shot (or edited) rather poorly and it was all over the place. Instead of captivating, it got me all confused instead. But if you’re a Matt Damon fan, you should watch it anyway.
Suicide Squad was nice. I was worried because a lot of the reviews were negative. Lucky for me, I disagree with them after watching the movie. I thought it was better than Batman vs Superman. Much much better. I guess those reviewers were like “It doesn’t feel like Avengers, so it’s no good”, which to me is bullshit because they’re not supposed to be similar anyway.
Also might I say, I think Margot Robbie nailed it with Harley Quinn. Some say she ruined it and it doesn’t feel like the comic book, I prefer to say she made the character her own. It is kind of like Robert Downey Jr and Iron Man. Also, she’s hot. In fact, she’s hott (hotter than hot)!
Last but not least, I totally forgot about my plans for cooking adventure when I did my grocery run. I was running late for a house viewing appointment. I mean, I thought I was running late for a house viewing appointment (refer to above). So I kind of just grabbed the usual stuff that I usually grabbed.
No, wait. That’s the wrong photo. Sorry…
Here’s the correct one…
I suppose I could do something special, like broccoli in orange marmalade gravy or something. But that would be a weird ass concoction that I don’t think I can stomach eating. I remember there was an episode of Kitchen Nightmares where a chef tried to be smart by creating prawns with chocolate sauce and Gordon ripped his face off.
On the plus side, I’m done with house hunting. And at least I bought food so I won’t starve.
Maybe next week… 🙄
