Heey everyone, hope you all had a great week and weekend! Mine was filled with birthdays and BBQs.
Started with my dad’s birthday last Tuesday.
Cakes are too common and dad is not a sweet tooth guy (neither do I) so Edible Arrangements came in rescue! I bought this using Groupon ($20 for $40)! Originally this would cost $48 but with Groupon, I only paid $28! SCORE! Besides everyone LOVED the fruits. We finished everything!
And I got myself a super early b’day gift..haha.. A NEW DIGITAL CAMERA! FREE case, SD card AND shipping! With an additional promo code, I even covered the sales tax! YAY ME!
This coming Thursday, my parents will go back to Indonesia as my brother has finally feeling a lot better and could do stuff on his own. Originally, they didn’t intend to stay this long (almost 6 months?) but apparently my brother’s case was a bit different from typical people who had TB infection.
So we all went out for Korean BBQ lunch on Saturday. My parents rarely eat out as they dislike the greasiness of restaurant’s food. But at least I want them to try Korean BBQ.
And also I got an excuse to give my new camera a try! Tee hee..!
Apparently, the BBQ didn’t stop there. In the evening our house was infested with lots of BBQ smoke from our neighbor!! Who’d knew they’d be BBQing in this time of the year? And stupid me forgot to close our room windows as they were bbqing RIGHT there! Geez, our house was full of smoke for a good 15 minutes, plus the smell!
And it happened TWICE!
On Sunday, we went to the in-laws for more birthday- my brother-in law’s! And it was the actual day!
Lastly, I found out that I won Lynn at The Actor’s Diet Oh Nuts! giveaway (thanks Lynn!).
1. Are you a food adventurous?
I’d say both K and I usually stay on the safe side. Usually we only go to Asian restaurants (Vietnamese, chinese, japanese, Korean, Thai) more than Caucasians. Oh and I also like Mediterranean food!
2. Have you used Groupon before?
The Edible Arrangement was my first time trying the Groupon. At first I was a bit skeptical about it as it sounds too good to be true. But after I tried it and it worked, I planned to keep an eye on any Groupon deals.
3. Free food, yay or nay?
A couple months ago fast food chains were having free meal giveaway (El Pollo Loco, KFC, etc). I only went for the El Pollo Loco and OMG, the line was crazy and I decided that would be my first and last time getting free food. I like free stuff because I’m cheap (haha) but for something like this, I rather pay than have to wait in the line for one hour just for a small piece of chicken meal.
