Big clock in Melbourne Central. When the clock strikes the hour this bottom bit appears from behind the clock. First time catching it!

A close up view of the clock.

Trip to Doncaster 29th to 30th June

Hate the journey to Doncaster, always gives me a headache, not to mention I have to get up REALLY early... But once I'm there everything is forgotten. Ipoh horfun for lunch (Yay!), Vietnamese at Indochine for dinner (Yay!!) and dim sum for lunch today just before leaving (Yay!!!). Not to mention a present from my aunt (a coat) and scones AND frozen dim sum to eat whenever I want to. Will be going down soon again for a dentist and optometrist appointment, wheeee!
Cute cakes seen in a cafe in Westfield Imagine having a birthday cake like this when you were 5! My cousins!

Howard's Farewell Dinner (San Churro's)
Dinner at Big Mama (Korean) followed by San Churro's for dessert! Yummmmyyy. JacKee, Howard, Brian, Fangi and I braved the cold for this gathering!! Funniest event I remember is probably the guy who came up to us asking what we thought of San Churro's chocolate then proceeded to bash San Churro's, talking about how Max Brenner is so much better and buying San Churro's over MB is like buying a Holden Rolls Royce. Lol!! Went back to JacKee's apartment to chat somemore (where it was warm!!) and got some cupcakes from her. With cute icing!! Thanks JacKee!

No pictures of Big Mama because the food came really fast and mine was in a hotpot meaning i had to mix it up immediately before it dried and burnt. I actually managed to finish it before any of the rice got burnt! My stomach obviously agrees with Korean food =)

Had to sit outside the shop for San Churro's because it was too packed, so we ate pretty fast so we could get out of the cold into the warmness of Safeway. Milo cereal is on sale!! No thanks to Howard who pointed it out to me and persuaded me to buy it.

My Hot Chocolate. Perfect for a icy cold day...
Brian's churros. After a not so good experience having it back in April I didn't want to have it anymore. But it seems like they didnt fry it too long this time... Funny thing was how fast the melted chocolate dried up in the cold!!

Howard's Berry-something something something. The waiter provided him with 4 other forks, but the selfish bugger refused to let any of us have any. Meanie.

JacKee and I shared this Flourless Chocolate Cake, with a side of melted milk chocolate... It was great, except the fact it fell on my coat, which is kind of stained now, but I can't bring it to the dry cleaners till I get another coat warm enough for winter... Started scooping the melted chocolate to eat on its own after the cake was gone. No wastage!!


Howard: Why don't I get any mention in your blog huh?! Take a picture of me now and post it up!!

Too bad for the attention-grabber. I have no pictures of him whatsoever. So unless you send me one, I can't post one up! Attn Howard.


Introducing the Star of the Day:


I love my portable heater. Depending on it to get me through the cold lonely winter nights!! It's a heater AND a fan, though the fan is not going to come in handy for a while... Just brought it over from IH today, since Chin Yu's place has no heater!! No wonder he went home for winter... Thanks to KK for getting it for me for my birthday!! (He specifically asked that I mention his name since Howard and Brian got mentioned)

weiyi is awesome

Was going through my blog posts when I came across this draft I saved. This was Weiyi's (AWESOME!!) response to my OLD post about:

QUESTION: Marrying someone you love VS. Marrying someone who loves you


Florence says (4:09 PM):

hey hun i read ur recent post... i'd say marrying someone who loves you

well, women r "built" differently compared to men. we can learn to love a person. believe it or not, but if a guy is nice to u, constantly caring, provides for u emotionally, loves ur parents n dotes or ur kids, AND IS FINANCIALLY SUPPORTIVE, u will definitely haf feelings for tt person but it isnt d same for guys. they either love a person, or they don't all women want security n stability. once all d "feelings" fizzles n sizzles off, u'll want a guy u can depend on and a guy who loves u will give u all that.

tts y i say i'll marry a guy who loves me.

but... i must clarify here tt der r other side rules to this general rule larh. of course u musn't completely hate tt guy. he has to b tolerable n u like him.

if u cant tolerate him at all, even if he loves u, forget abt it. n another thing is tt he must b capable n competent, as in able to provide for u n d family bcoz love isnt enough to sustain a MARRIAGE we girls shud learn to distinguish RELATIONSHIP with MARRIAGE it's two different things altogether

love alone wudnt b enuf for a good marriage in fact, juz as a side note, a good Christian marriage doesn't even require love d thing needed in a good marriage is RESPECT love is a bonus


Let me reiterate. Weiyi is awesome.

another one

wow, how very rare! in the blogging mood today since i have so much to talk about... and there's nothing here in doncaster to do past 8 pm...

what i have been doing:
(a) looking up recipes
Awesome pictures to make me salivate = motivation for me to learn cooking.
Have a recipe book that I painfully write recipes into and to paste articles I find about food. 1st thing to learn - how to use an oven other than for baking muffins. or burning stuff and setting the smoke detector off...
http://nofearentertaining.blogspot.com/ --> pretty interesting blog to read of easy daily recipes

(b) attempting to learn something over the holidays
Japanese! Been checking bookshops for self-help books but they're all so expensive!! Classes here are pretty expensive too...

(c) hanging out
Have watched Sex and the City and Kungfu Panda, was THIS close to watching Kungfu Panda again and planning to watch Mamma Mia! soon. Have been to the Melbourne Museum and the Zoo, as well as Crown Casino (I won!) and many more places thanks to Fangi... A good holiday so far, though i think i might be a recluse after she leaves...

(d) attempting to change my blog skin
Still trying! But as previously mentioned, it's not really working... Haiz...

(e) reading fanfiction
Gossip Girl fanfiction is the only thing keeping me alive and sane till Season 2 is out. Was talking to a guy about it yesterday during Chun Wah's birthday dinner, discussing the bitchiness of the later episodes, the couples who should be together, how hot Rufus and Lily are for 40++ year olds, and lots more!!

Not bad for 2 weeks of holidays so far!

Low - Flo Rida

It's scary how fast kids grow up nowadays! And what they are exposed to. This epiphany came when I got woken up from my afternoon nap to my 2 cousins (aged 12 and 10) singing EVERY word in the song

Low by Flo Rida

Shawty had them apple bottom jeans (jeans)
Boots with the fur (with the fur)
The whole club was looking at her
She hit the floor (she hit the floor)
Next thing you know
Shawty got low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low

Them baggy sweat pants
And the Reebok's with the straps (with the straps)
She turned around and gave that big booty a smack (hey!)
She hit the floor (she hit the floor)
Next thing you know
Shawty got low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low[Flo-Rida]
Hey, I ain't never seen nothing that'll make me go
This crazy all night spending my dough
Had the million dollar vibe and a body to go
Them birthday cakes they stole the show
So sexual
She was flexible,
Professional,
Drinking X&O
Hold up wait a minute, do I see what I think i whoa
Did i think i seen
Shawty get low
Ain't the same when it's up that close
Make it rain, I'm making it snow
Work the pole I gotta bank role
Ima say that I prefer her no clothes
I'm in to that I love women exposed
She threw it back at me I gave her mo'
Cash ain't a problem I know where it go

(she had them)
Apple bottom jeans (jeans)
Boots with the fur (with the fur)
The whole club was looking at her
She hit the floor (she hit the floor)
Next thing you know
Shawty got low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low
Them baggy sweat pants
And the Reebok's with the straps (with the straps)
She turned around and gave that big booty a smack (hey!)
She hit the floor (she hit the floor)
Next thing you know
Shawty got low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low

Hey, shawty what I gotta do to get you home
My jeans filled with gwap and they're ready for showing
Cadillacs laid back for the sexy grown
Patron on the rocks that'll make you moan
One stack (come on), two stacks (come on), three stacks (come on)
Now that's three grand
What you think I'm playing baby girl I'm the man
I'll bend the rubber bands
That's when I threw her legs on my shoulders
I knew it was over
That heny and Cola got me like a soldier
She ready for Rover, I couldn't control her
So lucky ,oh me, I was just like clover
Shawty was hot like a toaster
Sorry but I had to fold her
Like a pornography poster
She showed her

Apple bottom jeans (jeans)
Boots with the fur (with the fur)
The whole club was looking at her
She hit the floor (she hit the floor)
Next thing you know
Shawty got low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low

Them baggy sweat pants
And the Reebok's with the straps (with the straps)
She turned around and gave that big booty a smack (hey!)
She hit the floor (she hit the floor)
Next thing you knowShawty got low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low

Whoa, shawty yeah she was worth the money
Little mama took my cash
And I ain't want it back
The way she bent that back
Got all them paper stacks
Ta Ta Tattoo above her crack
I had to handle thatI was on it sexy woman
Let me show it make me want it
Two in the morning, I'm zoning
Them rosa bottles foaming
She wouldn't stop
Made it drop
Shawty did that pop and lock
Had to break her off that gwap
Gal was fine just like my glock

Apple bottom jeans (jeans)
Boots with the fur (with the fur)
The whole club was looking at her
She hit the floor (she hit the floor)
Next thing you know
Shawty got low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low

Yeah, not kidding!

Oh, and this, which happened at dinner:

Ashley (12 year old): Do you like Soldier Boy?
Me: Is that a CARTOON?
Ashley: Nooo, it's Soulja Boy, a rapper!
Me: ......(what the hell?)


As you can probably tell, I'm spending the day in my uncle's house... Pictures when I get home!

Oh and to anyone in Melb, I'm on 3 now! Swapped from Optus

holidays are awesome =)

At long last, my exams are over! Sayonara Semester 1!!
Been hanging out with Cel, Fang and Bako most of the time, us being the free ones. Went shopping, eating, watching movies, and a trip to the zoo today. Have to get the pictures off Fangi so I can put them up, but here are some that I took with my own camera...

Trip to Max Brenner's
"Suckao". Dip chocolate chips in milk warmed by a tealight and you get hot chocolate to drink!! Burned my tongue the first time I had it, so I've not had it since.

Waffle drizzled with chocolate =)
They have this vat of milk chocolate at the counter with a huge wooden spoon which they use to drizzle the chocolate over almost everything they serve...awesome!

Fondue for two. Not mine, obviously. Banana, Strawberries, Marshmallows and Banana Bread dipped into creamy melted chocolate...

I miss Max Brenner already. And this was just yesterday!



Sweeney Todd Musical Performance in Melbourne University
Technically it's not something I did during the holidays, more like before my exams, but mehhhh.


Hopefully there'll be a lot more activities to come. Going to the Melbourne Museum tomorrow!

Better In Time - Leona Lewis

It's been the longest winter without you
I didn't know where to turn to
See somehow I can't forget you
After all that we've been through

Going coming thought I heard a knock
Who's there no one
Thinking that I deserve it
Now I realize that I really didn't know
If you didn't notice you mean everything
Quickly I'm learning to love again
All I know is I'ma be okay

[ Chorus: ]

Thought I couldn't live without you
It's gonna hurt when it heals too
It'll all get better in time
And even though I really love you
I'm gonna smile cause I deserve to
It'll all get better in time

How could I could I turn on the TV
When there's something there to remind me
Was it all that easy
To just put aside your feelings

If I'm dreaming don't wanna let
Hurt my feelings
but that's the path
I believe in
And I know that time will heal it
If you didn't notice
boy you meant everything
Quickly I'm learning to love again
All I know is I'ma be okay

[ Chorus: ]
Thought I couldn't live without you
It's gonna hurt when it heals too
It'll all get better in time
And even though I really love you
I'm gonna smile cause I deserve to
It'll all get better in time

Since there's no more you and me
It's time I let you go
So I can be free
And live my life how it should be
No matter how hard it is I'll
be fine without you
Yes I will

[ Chorus: ]

Thought I couldn't live without you
It's gonna hurt when it heals too
It'll all get better in time
And even though I really love you
I'm gonna smile cause I deserve to
It'll all get better in time

Thought I couldn't live without you
It's gonna hurt when it heals too
It'll all get better in time
And even though I really love you
I'm gonna smile cause I deserve to
It'll all get better in time
