On Friday night we had out last "Flatmate Family Dinner." It took some coordinating, but we managed to do it. Somehow, half of my flatmates had never been to Curry Mile, so that obviously needed to be corrected. We decided to go to one of my favourites - Mughli, which specializes in Indian street food. Sure they may have had false accusations of cockroaches found in their food in the past, but let's face it, we're probably eating much worse in the majority of the food we eat from the everyday grocery store. Plus, cockroaches are a pretty good source of protein.

Yesterday, I had a 'girls day' with my friend, MaCris. We went for late breakfast at 'the Moose' (basically lunch - which I just finished telling you...) and then did some shopping. It was supposed to be a rainy day, so this was going to be our 'don't feel guilt about taking a break from your dissertation' activity. Well, it didn't rain until much later in the day, but she was pretty humid all day. And, one thing I'll never understand about this place, is the lack of A/C in massive public areas. I felt sorry for the many retail employees we encountered throughout the day, as it would have made for one hot, sluggish day!

Onward and upward though - plenty of things still left to see and many more memories to be made with friends before I finally get to pack up and head on home!
