- Been having lunch with Tariq, which has been good. We ventured out to find some Pokestops, despite the hot sun. We also found a nice little cafe.

- Had breakfast with Kristin the other morning, which was great. I haven't really sat down with just her in years, when I've seen her it's usually with another friend. Which is weird considering she's my oldest childhood friend. And it's been nice to find out that we DO have things to talk about. She's actually a great listener, and she's also funny. We were going to visit the old school, but her kid had chest pains so she had to leave.

- Went shopping with Nina as well on the same day, which was also good. I really really needed new bras. I also got a lip brush and brush cleaner, and some new jeans. Yay!

- Dinner with Ray the other night, along with her mom and her second brother Thari, who happened to be out of the forest for a while. (This is the cousin doing research on dung beetles.)
(Ray caught a Squirtle and a Jigglypuff.)
(This prompted my dad to say, "okay! when we go home, we download Pokemon Go and try this game.)

- I went to a cafe that Tariq and I found today, and sat there for about 4 or 5 hours working. It's got really good WiFi, but the chicken chop was kinda lackluster. Still, I like the owner and I want to get some cake there sometime.

- Dad and I went walking around Subang Lake today. This was also a Pokemon Go trip. We took way longer than expected because he hadn't registered, and he had to come up with a nickname and all the things and blah. I told him we could catch a Pikachu as a starter Pokemon, but he instead looked at the screen, said, "this one is the biggest, so I'll catch this one." It took him a while to realize he had to flick the Pokeball, so we ended the walk around Subang Lake with 8 Pokemon (Magikarps, Ratatas, a Pidgey, and the starter Bulbasaur).

After eating at Silva's, we headed home (with a brief Pokestop). After that we went to walk the dog, where we proceeded to catch even more Pokemon. Some zealous Ingress agent did a thing of making practically all sorts of things a portal: frigging seesaws on the playground, random murals that aren't even there anymore, a shrine outside someone's house (and shrines in people's businesses), and hanging key signs outside the locksmith's. It's all very random and weird. My brother played Ingress and he's pretty sure he knows the agent who designated all those spots.

Nonetheless, we came away with a haul involving Eeves, Pidgeottos, Spearows, and even a Gastly.

We're going to Gasing Hill tomorrow to incubate a couple of eggs. (He has 9 eggs! WHERE DID THE EGGS COME FROM?) Dad also wants to try the curveball thing.

- Mom's annoyed that Dad's into Pokemon Go and we'll see how long she holds out seeing as she now has a smartphone just so she can keep up with everybody else.

- I'm annoyed enough by this that I'm looking into smartphone options this end.
