Final Day!

All good things must come to an end! Today is the last day of my internship, and my boss decided to take me and the other intern out for lunch. Little did we know it was a lunch that will prove to be very memorable. We ate at Ubon by Nobu - yes, for those who have been reading my journal, it's the same Japanese restaurant that the brokers bought the entire desk sushi from. So I have heard stories about how expensive this place is, but it is a whole different story to actually experience it.

We racked up a �210 (that is $500CDN) bill between the three of us. What on earth did we eat, you ask. Two appetizer dish, yellowtail and beef sashimi. Then two cut rolls of salmon and California roll. Plus three pieces of scallop sashimi, and three pieces of tuna sashimi. The main course was black cod (which may I add, was the best tasting fish I have EVER had, no exaggeration there!), and chicken teriyaki. For dessert we had a chocolate bento box, which is a chocolate pudding with hot chocolate sauce inside, with a scoop of green tea ice cream. Okay we also had a glass of champagne each before the food. That's it. Now that was expensive but leaves me hanging for more. One of these days when I have the money, I will definitely return for more delicious Japanese food.

After work we were invited by my other boss (Jeff) for a drink. It was such a warm day! The sun was shining and the dockside was filled with bankers, celebrating the long weekend to come. It must be fun to work here in the summer! People standing by the pier, drinking and having a good time. Some other co-workers joined us to celebrate a work term well done. (or they could be celebrating that we're leaving.. mm.. come to think of it, it's probably the latter not the former)

My housemate and I decided to end the term with a well-deserved dinner at Chili's (seems like the day revolves around eating and drinking). Of course that turned out to be a bad idea, as I think I ate a little too much and threw up the whole night. Ugh.
