Domestic

Rental inspection is in a week's time... I've started doing a bit of cleaning. I'm not exactly a neat freak... only do cleaning when it's time for inspection... which is about every 2.5 months...


Brought Li-Ann out for dinner yesterday... thought she needed a break. Wanted to eat Mediterranean at George's Meze in Subiaco BUT by the time we got there, it was all fully booked out. Yah, next time want to eat out, must plan first.

So since we were already in Subiaco, we went to Woodpecker's for wood fire pizza. The place was packed too... but service was pretty fast. Somehow, the pizza seemed smaller than the last time we went... but still tastes good. We had a pizza each (or rather Li-Ann had 2/3 of hers and I had my full pizza AND the remaining 1/3 of hers... hahhah). The taukeh was very nice... he asked me to keep my 25% discount Entertainment book voucher, so that I can use it there again.

Mediterranean seafood... tastes really good with garlic prawns and all!

Woodpecker's special... I was attracted to it because it had a mix of everything... but later felt I should have ordered something more exotic... like Spicy Indian...

Been feeling slightly under the pump at work lately... been assigned to this major client with 2 inept junior accountants (yes, I know I should be more patient and less arrogant... but I don't remember myself being so dependent last time...). Also manager expectations are pretty demanding... I'm expected to work late but still have to make money on the job (meaning can't charge too much time)... I can't win...

Anyway, have not been neglecting my training. Swam 5000m yesterday for the first time in my 1.5 hour session (I usually do about 3.5k to 4k). My usual coach wasn't around as the other swim kids had competition. So my friend, who's also a coach, gave me some custom-made endurance training.

Been doing a lot of spinning lately... as this client starts early in the morning, I can't make it to the swim sessions. Have been able to clock consistently above 30kph average for my 20 minute sessions now. Looking forward to next week's duathlon.

i've actually always passed woodpeckers but never actually tried it, cos it's so close to my office.. but since u say it's not too bad, might have to try it one day! aahah

anyway, yea, it's always a lose-lose situation with chargeables... but my company ani't too fussed with meeting costs.. or rather, i'm not! ahahah. as long as the work gets done, they're happy.

Woodpecker's not bad lah... wouldn't say it's out of this world. A bit pricey though, about 25 bucks per pizza.
