The week that was...

Tomorrow is Friday and then it will be the weekend again.

The past weekend was a long one, with Monday being Western Australia Foundation Day public holiday. I took a day off training on Saturday to help a friend. The poor girl had her ceiling caved in. Must be due to the after effects of the hail storm in March. Fortunately, she wasn't in the room at that time. She was very kind to treat us to lunch at Ipoh Garden for our efforts of helping her clean up.

Sunday I did my first brick training for the season. 82km ride with winds blowing just above 20kph. I averaged 29.9kph. The 6km run after that was pretty challenging, I struggled a bit but managed to slip just under 27 minutes. Looks like it will take me a while to get back into running well off the bike.

Monday I ran 13km. Legs were pretty tight but I was able to keep it under 56 minutes. We then had lunch at Fast Eddy's. I had a steak sandwich, which honestly looked much better than it's taste.

Li-Ann's cousins are here for the week. They have quite a tight schedule as they are taking their pre-wedding pictures here. But we managed to catch up for dinner on Wednesday at City Garden in Northbridge. Of all my years here in Perth, I don't think I've eaten there before. Had always dined in other Chinese restaurants. The food was actually really good! We ate until we were stuffed. Would definitely go back there again.

This morning, I attended a financial reporting updates seminar organized by Deloittes, our auditors. The invitation mentioned breakfast would be served, hence I deliberately went with an empty stomach. And I was definitely not disappointed! There were muffins, croissants, cold meats and yoghurt placed at the centre of each table. And I thought that was it, but partway through the seminar, the wait staff brought each person a plate of cooked breakfast - toasts with poached eggs and bacon. I doubt anyone was paying full attention to the seminar when they were busy gorging themselves with food!

Tomorrow is not only the first kick-off of the World Cup but it will also be my brother's first SUKMA swimming event in Malacca. I can't help but feeling a bit envious, no doubt very proud of him. This would be the penultimate point of his swimming career. All the best, Keith!

Hahha Ian, Tar Kong Zhai actually means working class men. I labelled it that way because part of the post relate to my work.
