Sharing Not Stealing In Silver Metallics

15 November 2011

Terrible Tuesday's are really trying to live up to their name. I woke up this morning before my alarm went off, which is unheard of for me. I figured it must have been because I went to bed a tad earlier than usual. I thought about rolling over and waiting for my alarm to go. After a few minutes I decided I could always use a bit of extra time so I didn't have to rush around like a headless chicken getting ready. I picked up my phone to check what time it actually was and see how close it was to the first of my three alarms (I'm very paranoid about sleeping through my alarm) going off. My phone wouldn't switch on though. I'd put it on to charge when I got into bed but instead of charging it had just gone flat dead. Ahhhh sh*t. I checked the time on a clock in my living room, it was 9.09! Nine minutes after I was due at work. Bugger. So began my morning.

You know how it is when your day gets off to a bad start, it tends to determine the mood of the day. It didn't help that there was no time for breakfast or even a coffee before work. I'm one of those irritable when hungry types. I looked like crap too as you can imagine.

I prefer to leave negatives behind though so let's focus on yesterday instead, which was a far better day; when I maintained a nice constant blood sugar level and looked reasonably presentable.

My boyfriend and I are lucky that our apartment is situated right in the heart of one of the best areas of Seoul, Gangnam. There's a lot of great places within walking distance of our apartment including some cute cafe's we like to walk to and get dinner at. After work we took a stroll to one of them and snapped some pics next to a cool building we pass.

Silver Metallic Jeans - H&M. Jersey Blazer - ASOS. Knit Scarf - Accessorize.
Dream Catcher Silver & Black Necklace - H&M. Boots - Dorothy Perkins.

Metallic Silver T-Shirt - Mango.  Lipstick - MAC 'Saint Germain'.
Unenthusiastic model, can you tell?! <3

He was hungry (it's a much more serious problem when his blood sugar levels get low) so he wasn't too impressed about the impromptu photo shoot en-route. I think my photo captures his impatience well, don't you agree? Are all men the same when they're hungry; kind of like it's impossible for them to function correctly until they've eaten something?

He got his dinner in the end though. Don't worry he ate more than that salad, that was for me, it's just that all food in Korea tends to get put in the middle of the table to share. I quite like it that way. It means you can order your feel-good-about-yourself-healthy meal and then eat the yummy-not-so-good-feel-kind-of-guilty food your boyfriend ordered and it's not stealing, it's sharing! Oh...and the calories still belong to him that way too!


(No boyfriend's were harmed or truly, genuinely angered in the making of this post.)

    I think my husband is the same way when he gets hungry (ok, not as bad as I am) but he'll never admit it though.
