At long last I finally completed my Pokedex from Gen 1 that’s been released in my region :D (I know, this is way late!) For the longest time I was praying for a Lapras and waiting for a Charizard. Recently, they added a few more baby Pokemon from Gen 2, which can only be obtained by egg hatching. I’m missing Clefa, Electakid, Togepi and Togetic, though it’s all just a matter of time. I’ve also maxed out all my upgrades, which is pretty sweet :)
It’s been two weeks since I started at my new job, and I’m settling in well :3 This is a pic of my new office taken one night when everyone had gone home :’D I’ll be getting a fancy brand new MacBook Pro soon. YAY!
This is Iggy the doggy :D A workmate brought him in for a day. I think every company needs a dog. They are so adorable and happy :D
Today we hung out with our dear god sister for her 30th birthday last week :D We caught up over lunch at Sushi Tei, which also happens to have a pokestop…so naturally we had one hand throwing pokeballs. Yes, we all play the game. And yes it’s still awesome 8D
Food was delicious. My favourite was the seared scallop sushi (which isn’t pictured D:) and my lychee drink was the best.
On this nice lovely Sunday, Hubby and I did some hiking over at the Blue Mountains :D Hubby woke up extra early this morning to make fresh sushi for lunch~ yummm. We did the trail at Wentworth Falls which took us about 3 hours including breaks. We also took the chance to see if there were any Pokemon in the area (Pokemon Go taking over our lives~ lol) Reception wasn’t that great, especially as we descended the mountains, so it’s not really practical (and kinda dangerous). We were surprised there were a few Poke Stops along the trail and even two gyms! Hubby and I battled at the red gym and left our Hypno and Snorlax there. It apparently got taken over tonight at around 7pm.. Someone actually went down the mountains after dark to play.. nuts ;p
I’m surprised I don’t feel tired at all :O Maybe all those steps I’ve been doing recently is paying off ohoho ;D There were more Pokemon to catch than I expected, though you wouldn’t come all the way here just for that. They’re pretty common ones you can find anywhere else. Still, it was a nice touch being able to see them here ^^
Today I reached level 23 :D Pokemon Go is still tons of fun, and I’ve been walking so much more because of it! I did 19,000 steps today, and 20,000 the last two days :O Can Chibi keep this up?
You may have noticed my Poke coins have increased! I’ve continued to battle at least once a day to claim my minimum 10 coins per day. I actually didn’t realise you could claim more than 10 coins, if you have more than 1 Pokemon at a gym at the time you claim. You may only claim once a day, but if you have 2 Pokemon in different gyms, you could claim 20 (provided they’re still at the gym when you redeem it!)
Upon learning this, Hubby and I walked around town and took down 4 gyms today, woo! :D We played it safe and claimed 20 coins after we conquered two gyms. We didn’t want to get too greedy and risk getting nothing XD We’ll aim for four next time.
To celebrate Rayfy’s 29th birthday, we had lunch in Meadowbank at Anema E Core, for traditional Italian wood-fired pizza! The photos all came out red because we sat outdoors under a red marquee. Luckily it was nicely heated as it was a pretty cold day! The pizza was pretty good, and the staff were super friendly and enthusiastic :D Ray also brought along a delicious Birthday cake~ nomnomnom.
This morning we had brunch at Efendy, a Turkish restaurant in Balmain for Emily’s 29th birthday :) We had the $30 breakfast sample menu which consisted of bread: pita bread, pogaca, sesame simit, walnut and sultana cake and spiced potato borek. It came with a bunch of different jams/honey/spreads served with cheese, olives, sausages and fruit. My favourite? The honey/butter jam..yum! Drinks were a choice between Turkish tea, apple tea and Turkish coffee. I went with the Turkish tea with 2 sugars so it sure felt like a one sweet breakfast. Very good service and friendly staff :)
It’s been a long time since I’ve played Pokemon, but Pokemon Go is so amazing! AMAZING YOU HEAR ME??!! XD WHAT AM I EVEN DOING HERE I SHOULD BE OUT IN THE BUSHES LOOKING FOR MY JIGGLYPUFF! X3
I installed the game on day one (after everyone was talking about it), but it was not until a few days later that I decided to try it out. By the time that happened, my usernames were all taken … so now I’m stuck with this:
(Seen: 43 Caught: 39)
I’m having lots of fun so far, and it’s making me want to walk even more (which is great for my daily steps!)
Looking forward to Emily’s brunch on Sunday, which is followed by a Poke Walk, woo! :D
