Bruised and battered

I’ve been running around town trying to take my blood test at two different locations today and the outcome is as follows

Pretty much how I feel mentally right now

How awesome am I when a “drug addict” almost fall in love with me?

EH! That was a huge lie but this one is true:
How awesome am I when a “drug addict” gave me a hug out of appreciation? Pretty awesome, I tell you! And in front of my boss of course!

Well, this is the story; he ordered a soft serve and when he was trying to pay he couldn’t find his money. So he kept trying to rummage through all of his pockets, in the 3 different jackets he wore, as well as his backpack.
He went on like this for approx. 5 minutes while talking to me with quiet slurring words, not that of a drunk person but still slurring, and he said something about a restaurant. I don’t know, my hearing has been kind of lousy lately…Anyways, he took his backpack with him to the side a few metre away and said something about needing to find his money.

One of my boss was presence while all of this happened, because I was going to close for the day and he needed to take the money from the registers with him. And when that man went to the side to rummage through his backpack, my boss just kept staring at him with a thoughtful look and said if he can’t find it just give it (the ice cream) to him and I agreed.
So I was doing my stuff, turning off machines and preparing to close all the while taking a look at the man. And usually my boss will just take the money and go to count them but he didn’t, he just lingered and looked at the man still looking through his backpack.

It just came to a point when I was standing outside about to slide the windows in place to close it up, and my boss was like: Why don’t you go and give it to him now, Bao. And you know, I went to the man still crooking over his backpack and said “Excuse me… excuse me” and when he turned to me with a sad look I said: “You can just take it, I’m closing up now anyways…” You should have seen his face brightened up right there and then. “Thank you”, he said and proceeded to give me a hug. I didn’t anticipate that at all and it was kind of awkward for me, seeing as I was born and awkward hugger. But he was so happy, and I couldn’t take that from him.

After conversing a little with him about his missing credit card, I turned and went back to the “booth” I work at. The scary part was seeing my boss holding an eye on us through the window. I proceeded to trying to close the sliding window with my obviously bad skills and well, it didn’t want to close up properly so my boss came out to help me. He went back inside while I was still trying to make the two windows meet each other. In my own little world I looked up and saw my boss walk through the doors inside the booth while staring at something behind me and then he looked at me and stared at something behind me again.

Being me, I was completely dumbfounded when I couldn’t figure out what he was staring at after having turned around to take a look. It wasn’t before I completely snapped out of my little world that I heard fragments of what the man from earlier was trying to say really loudly while walking by. Something about “nice girl” while he pointed at me with a happy face.

Later when I had already succeeded in closing those windows, with my boss’ help, and inside the booth my boss asked: “Was he happy?”, “Yeah…” I replied and he said something along the lines of “You probably made his day”

I don’t know though… Did I? Wasn’t it partly my boss’ “effort” as well? I don’t know and I guess it doesn’t really matter ’cause at the end of the day you’ll still be able to think that you made someone’s day whether they knew it or not.


Cravings

I had the worst kind of nightmare last night… What did I dream of that deserved the title of worst nightmare you say?
I dreamt that there was a lady who just suddenly came into my house and started eating all of my instant noodle supply. And not the cheap ones, but the more expensive and good tasting one. I think it’s a sign from above trying to say that I should eat less instant noodles whenever I’m hungry.

I’ve been doing that lately, eating instant noodle whenever, and I never get satisfied! I keep craving it for some reason? Oh well, here I go to make me some delicious ramen! As for the sign, let’s forget it for now.


My first attempt on….

Mousse :D. It was supposed to be a yoghurt – mango mousse. Well, I kinda managed to overwhip the top part the first time, so I had to redo it, but I decided to use strawberry instead. I’m glad I used strawberry, because the canned mango didn’t taste good. I’m going to make another mango mousse when it’s mango season. I’m sure it’ll taste much better than the canned one =.=.

So how did it turn out? I liked the yoghurt base, but was a little disappointed with the strawberry top. It was too creamy for my taste. It’s not really suprising considering the fact that I had to use whipped cream in it, but I didn’t think so much about it when chose the recipe. Next time I’ll just have to make sure to find a recipe that’s less creamy 😛 Didn’t turn out that bad,at least it’s edible and the bottom was good 😀


Cooking

Cooking is one of my weak points. Although I’m still not very good at it, I’m better than when I first came to Trondheim. Well, I basically had to learn how to cook, otherwise I woudn’t have anything to eat. Since most of the time I cook for myself, I don’t like trying out difficult recipes or trying out things that requires a lot of ingredients and time. I disliked cooking before and just liked to eat. I still like to eat instead of cooking right now, but unlike before, I think cooking can be fun, especially if you do it with family or friends.

This is what I made today, I sort of followed was inspired with this recipe.

I actually made something similar last week, the main thing about the recipe is just the sauce, but it’s almost like teriyaki sauce, or maybe it is teriyaki :S (was to hungry to take a picture, I just ate everything up :P). Anyway, today I made it with with chicken clubs instead.


Silence

After two hours of lecture in the morning, I had two hours free. Instead of reading in the library, I went to Rema 1000 to buy ingredients for my dinner. While I was in the store, I received a message from SIT bolig that they were going to shut down the electricity  for one hour starting at 11 a.m. The clock was around 10.25 when I saw the message, which meant I had around 30 minutes to finish shopping, head home and cook some food. I was hungry, and I had to use the oven.  Fortunately, I made it, I even had 5 minutes of spare time until they shut the electricity.

It was kinda freaky when there was no electricity in the house. The house was sooooo silent. I mean, when there’s nobody around I feel like it’s quiet, however the refrigerator and other things still make some noise. Now on the other hand, it was dead silent. Kinda like an abandoned/haunted house. Nobody was home too, so it was a little scary. But I left like 5 minutes after the electricity was gone, because I planned on reading a little before the next lecture though.

Picture for the day: I really hate the weather here now. It’s like a combination of snow and rain …ugh. (bad quality because it was taken with my phone. Was too lazy to bring out my camera to take one picture XD)

 


Ebay …

Or Evil Bay as Bao calls it, and I must say I agree. It’s a pretty scary site. Once I’m there, it’s difficult to get out. I always end up spending hours there searching for a lot of stuff that I…..umh, don’t need. But it’s kind of fun though 😄

Anyway, Bao do you remember the bun sponge thing you showed me? I ordered it when you gave me the site. I still haven’t received it, and it’s been over a month!! I’m reconsidering buying it again from someone else because I really want to try it TT_TT aah what to do?
