I did not expect myself to spend my March Break the way I actually did...



In other words, I basically pictured myself bumming around all day, catching up on my TV series while eating and napping on the side - THE GOOD LIFE. :-)



My March Break didn't exactly go as planned after I agreed to help out one of my co-workers cover her shifts for this week! I only had Wednesday off and I did what I pictured myself doing in the beginning... and I found it strange... because I realized I did not have as much fun as I thought I would!



It actually felt like a day wasted... I mean... it's good to have it once in a while! Since I finished work at noon today, I had one of the two options... bum around again... or



SPEND TIME WITH MY BEST FRIEND! :-)



On the bus ride to Thiya's, my left leg kept twitching... maybe I was cold... or maybe it was indicating that something good was going to happen to me... :-)



It was actually my first time going to Thiya's house and her family was so warm and welcoming! I surprised her with my favourite banana cake... while she offered me everything to eat in her fridge!!! Hahaha



When I walked through the door, her sister and her were having a Connect 4 match and then she asked me if I wanted to play, which totally reminded me of the photo I saw on Tumblr the day before of Beyonce and Kanye West playing!!! Hahaha

She literally boosted my ego with every loss she had but I like to just think she wasn't trying her very best... :-)



She also showed me the little things I gave her that she had kept over the years... (Click here to read!) and the things I had taught her how to make!!! (Click here to learn!) :-)

  

Thiya had invited me to her place many times and she had always mentioned how she wanted to show me this trail near her house because she knew how much I like to explore! Luckily I remembered that and wore my worn out Uggs yesterday! :-)



Thiya and I both agreed that we were each other's companion most of March Break but we're not complaining at all...



well I hope she's not!!!





We followed this never-ending trail that led us to pass parks, lakes,





parks again...

 

until we hit my favourite spot under a bridge! :-)





I told Thiya to think of an "OG" name for us and the best she came up with was our old email addresses! Hahaha



"CHUBBY CHEEKS + GANGSTA THIYA = GOONS 4EVA"



We went back to her place and she made her brother and I sandwiches! Have I mentioned how kind her family was!! Her younger brother Omer saw how much I enjoy taking photos, so he gave me two of his spare memory cards! Meanwhile, her youngest sister looked at me as more of a Connect 4 competition,



"Let's play Connect 4... and I promise you I will not let you win."
She was actually so serious.


Not to brag or anything but I sorta... maybe stripped her winning status after I beated her seven out of the nine games we played... Mwuahaha



I die at the above photo every time because Thiya only had one red piece left and she was literally doomed to let me win!!! Hahaha

 

I actually think the twitches I had in my left leg was foretelling all the lucky wins I would have yesterday... :-)



The day ended well with her showing me her favourite custard cake from this cute coffee shop!



You and your family were awesome hosts and thanks for having me Thiya!!! :-)
