Back in the Old Routine…

I like to blog about things that are new, exciting or unusual. My entries comprise of places I’ve never been or experiences I’ve never had. After the insanity that was last month, my weekends were considerably more mundane. I did have a few fun adventures though!

A couple weeks ago, my boyfriend and I went out to eat at Thai Bowl in Watertown. Thai Bowl serves authentic Thai food, including pho. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very calm and relaxing, with light green walls, ornate decorations and hardwood floors. While I enjoyed my meal (my usual pad si eow), I appreciated the environment of the restaurant the most. It was quiet and peaceful, letting my boyfriend and I have intimate conversations without worrying about time or noise. I would love to go there again!

I had never seen Bastille before, but a friend of mine had said they put on a good show so I was pretty intrigued. Needless to say, they did not disappoint. Their performance was tight, and they got the kids in the crowd into a frenzy. The visuals that accompanied their performance were interesting as well. Their “Wild Wild World” album is a response to the turbulent times we are living in right now, and the videos that played during their show reflected that theme perfectly. Some videos were reminiscent of Koyaanisqatsi, others were more like 1960’s films. There was even a nod to the opening of “Vertigo”! I had an excellent time at their show, and I definitely recommend seeing them if you can.

I’m hoping that since the weather is getting warmer I will be able to go on some new adventures soon! Keep an eye on the blog to see what happens!
