The story of my life

GAAAH I don't even know how to begin...

Background story:
I am currently doing my postgrad degree at one of Australia's top universities, or so they call it.
I am in my last semester.
I was so excited to finish my study until I saw my grades for MKTG6013 last week.
My lecture just failed three of my assignments (two group assignments and one individual one), which made me failed the whole unit.
Me and my group have been accused of plagiarism with no evidences whatsoever....

Now I feel like everything is crumbling down :(
I am sick of studying.. Working in retail... and living in Sydney in general..
I miss my mom, my hometown, the convenience of living in Indonesia and so on..

I know how bad I sound right now. You may think that I should be grateful because I get the privileged to live and study in Sydney, I have a great relationship and bla bla...

Truth is, it is unbelievably hard to be grateful and to see the beauty of my situation especially when you are faced with giant obstacles and you feel like there is no other way out.
They say easier said than done!

I am so don't want to fail this subject. Because it means, having to study one extra subject next year and having to pay $4,600 for it. I am so over it...

But, having said that, I will not stop fighting until I have exhausted all of my options.
I am not going to sit down and just wait for the final verdict. 

I've got all my fingers and toes crossed that God will help me and everything will be all right...

Now I have to go back to study for my exam..

Till next time girls :)

CHUR Burger - Overrated

Monday, November 3, 2014

I was so curious about CHUR Burger since it got a lot of good reviews on Urbanspoon. To my disappointment, the whole experience was not that great.

First, let's talk about the restaurant setting. It was very cramped and uncomfortable seating. Further, it seemed busier than it should have been due to lack of space and poor design. On each table you will find a paper roll, mustard, ketchup, bunch of printed menus and various chilli sauces.

Menu wise, I am quite happy with it. It is presented in a recycled paper. You need to place the order and pay at the counter before sitting down.

As for the food. We got beef burger, lamb burger ($10 each) and the sweet potato fries ($5). The burger is mediocre, bun was a bit stale. But I must say, I liked the lamb burger better, it was juicier. The sweet potato fries was soggy and tasted like wet potatoes with lots of salt.

Grilled lamb, mint sauce, feta, red onion, aioli ($10)

Grilled beef, cheese, tomato jam, mustard mayo, pickle ($10)

Sweet potato fries, garlic, lime ($5)

In conclusion, I would give 5/10.  Don't believe the hype guys... ;)
