Belles

Last night, I made Jenny and Wai Lam come with me to Barangaroo for Belles Hot Chicken, which I'd been wanting to try for a while.


I think it was a pop-up until recently, now it's a permanent sit-down restaurant.


This area kind of reminds me of part of London's South Bank.

The chicken. I chose the Hot level of spicyness, which isn't even the highest, but it was pretty damn hot. Unfortunately the chicken and fries were also overly salty, which didn't make it an enjoyable kind of hot. Hot Star still reigns as my favourite fried chicken!


Went round the corner afterwards for some gelato to cool the fire.


Darling Harbour just down that way.


I was totally up for making the most of my new freedom, but these two had work the next morning (like they're adults now or something) so we just left after that.

Made it out alive

Apparently this is the face of a person who's finished her last ever exams of med school! Gosh, I'd forgotten that part of the reason why I started doing headless outfit shots was because my face is so hard to control.


Today's exam was kind of an interview (to convince them that we've learned stuff in the last six years), a bit more formal than the other clinical exams. I don't own a blazer, and I didn't want to buy a not-perfect one out of desperation, so I emergency-borrowed one from a friend (thanks Jenny). I felt so fancy and professional. I'm on the lookout for a blazer of my own now.

Speaking of clothes... my graduation ball is less than 3 weeks away and I don't have a dress. I borderline dislike formal wear and I also hate the idea of buying a dress that I'll only wear on special occasions (since I never go to any), so my search for a formal-appropriate-yet-able-to-be-worn-casually dress that I like has been fruitless. I do have more time to spend looking now, but worst comes to worst there's a dress I already have that might work, although it's not really my style anymore and I might feel a little awkward in it. I'm going to hit some shops tomorrow and see if I have any luck.

BEAMS '16

Last night was BEAMS arts festival, which I posted about last year as well. It's a one-night only event, around Chippendale. I'm two down, two to go through my exams so I felt like I deserved a night off.
