Happy Mothers Day to all the Mamas out there! I'm pretty lazy when it comes to buying gifts, I always leave it to the last minute. I think the fact that my mum is incredibly hard to buy for has made me put it off even more. I went into the city today to have a wander around. Usually, I try to stay away from the city as I used to work there 5 days a week. But I haven't stepped foot there in a long time, so I actually enjoyed having a look around the shops and doing a bit of people watching.
After getting the present out of the way, we went to Borders. It was pretty sad seeing the enormous 3 leveled store covered in sale signs. Even the fixtures and furniture were for sale. It made me feel a little guilty inside for all the hours spent at Borders just reading and not buying. Unfortunately they didn't have any of the titles I was looking for, but I did come across about 10 cooking books that I so desperately wanted. Luckily for my bank account, I overcame the urges and went over to Dymocks to get what I was looking for - One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey. My parents had been talking about the movie the other night at dinner and the story seemed very intriguing to me. I am one of those people who have to read a book before they see the movie. I like the characters to develop in my head first before being influenced by someone else's perspective.
For lunch we went for Korean. I got the raw beef bibimbap (I love raw stuff) and Pham got these weird icy cold noodles. I don't think they were his favourite, but I think they'd be rather refreshing on a hot summers day.
