I've been having a sore throat/cough for the past couple days. What to do but boil barley, barley and more barley. Today's the third time in a week I'm boiling barley to drink. The sore throat's gone now, just the irritating cough, and the feeling of phlegm being stuck at the back baaaack part of your throat.
I've also cooked porridge, pumpkin soup, and just in general to try keep the unhealthy foods at bay (sad to say, I've also been sneaking in bites of cookies in between sips of barley or brewed hot green tea just because I'm a girl! I'm bound to have a sweet craving at some point of my day. Justified.). The pumpkin soup was a mistake I reckon, I cooked it last night, happily forgetting that pumpkin is one helluva sweet vegetable (the point being why I was raring to try it out in the first place...). The soup was a tad too sweet for my body at this point of time (sick time) and really thick. I think I probably could use it as a spread of some sort for my sandwiches or whatever. snigger.
I've still been diligently making the trips to the gym, about 5 times a week by far. I went these days even though I had my cough. Maybe I should rest at home today and tomorrow, to see how things go, cos maybe my lack of rest worsened my cough? I woke up today feeling yesterday's mood of "feeling better" gone. Gah.
It's week 6 of school now, I probably will be rushing my assignments this week and won't be blogging anytime sooner. I just have to resign myself to the fact that my backlog of photos are NEVER going to end in the near future... I've got 3 assignments due next week in week 7, the week before Easter Break. Sigh. Talk about being thrown straight back into frenzied assignments mode... At least I have something to look forward - Easter Break. Here's to praying that I can survive this two weeks before the hols...

And here's the last of pictures for the Melbourne trip. Yay! I'm starting to clear the photos to be uploaded. Now, I've gotta start working on the Brisbane part of the holiday trip. I can't wait to clear the rest of them so I can start on my baking pictures... (:
Day 3 Melbourne: Grampians (damn breathtaking scenery), own "picnic" lunch (remember Sis??? ha!), dinner at Pancake Parlour.
Day 4 Melbourne: Chadstone Shopping Centre, Little Bourke St for dinner
Sitting outside the huge-ass Supre stall in Melbourne waiting for my sister who was happily shopping...
Day 5 Melbourne: St Kilda's, Bridge Road (Richmond), last minute food shopping.
We went Little Bourke and cos our first choice, Greek food, was too pricey, we walked around till we stumbled upon this small Japanese bar/restaurant place. The food was simply divine. Though we only ordered two dishes and the portions weren't alot, the quality of the food was top-notch. I especially love the sashimi salad, I wish I knew how to replicate it at home...
