the element and the supperclub  
this was another girls' night out for dinner, followed by a ketchup with michael over a glass of wine at the supperclub.

the element is a restaurant/cafe a stone's throw away from jean's apartment. we ended up there because jean didn't feel like going very far or seeing too many people, and apparently the food is decent.

so they got confused with jean's order and gave her a carbonara pasta instead of a pizza. that turned out to be a blessing in disguise because the carbonara was awesome. the cream sauce was heavenly and the pasta nicely al dente. my risotto was a disappointment - i found it way too salty. i couldn't taste anything beyond the saltiness. may thought it was tasty though. but she was too stuffed from an earlier dinner to help me with it. sera ordered the prosciutto and prawn pizza, which was really good too. i never thought this combination would work but it did. prawns were fresh and springy to chew on, and the textures came together very nicely. yum! i kept stealing pieces from sera (with her encouragement, because she couldn't finish it) instead of eating my horribly salty risotto.

after dinner, we all went upstairs to jean's to have a sit and chat. i had a nasty encounter with jean's mother again and that sorta did my head in. nobody witnessed it though. the girls were all tired after a long day's work and we said our goodbyes early.

i then caught up with michael, whom i haven't seen for a good 4-5 years or so? this ketchup sesh was before we went to eat at his restaurant so i guess it shows that my backlog is all over the place. :) supperclub is still a nice place to chill after all these years, although there seems to be more weirdoes now. very amusing to watch and giggle at.

while walking back to his car, we saw an awesome night sky. that was when i wished i had brought my [gorillapod] with me. the above was the best shot out of about 5 attempts, taken while propped against a nearby parking meter.

no one can probably tell what state i was in from the pictures, but i will always remember this night as one when i was severely disturbed. i felt better after having a glass of wine and a ear to talk off. but the next day, i woke up feeling like i was going crazy. that was when i wrote the entry on 'my friend's mother' a short while ago. i'm no longer feeling like that because i've chosen to banish this person from my mind. i don't think going bananas while thinking about how atrocious this person is, is worth it.

no, it ain't worth it at all. she can drive herself crazy in her own absurd world, i'm not going to join her in it. i'm enjoying the rest of my holiday, thank you very much.

All the stuff that I can't eat anymore *sniff sniff* ;)

Life is too short to waste worry on people like that - I've just come to that realisation recently ;)

there are heaps of other good stuff you can eat. :)

yes, life is too short indeed. she ain't even my own mother, so i'm just not going to care anymore. i've tried, done my best, and i'm done.

hey babe, look, i joined livejournal! makes it easier to post. :D

anyways, i agree: the only way to avoid negative peeps like that is to just banish them from your mind. total waste of precious brain space and not worth the angst.

yay! two of my closest mates have just joined livejournal! :D adding you now...

i have put a permanent ban on the evil person from going anywhere near my thoughts. :)
