While my bff is in H&M she whatsapps me about something she found. After getting a picture of the said item, the conversation goes like this..

Her: You want? It's rlly cheap!!! $14.90 only!!
Me: Gah!!!! You're tempting me...
Her: Hahahaha I'll give you 5 minutes
Me: If you gave me 0 I'd save some monies.

5 mins later..

Her: Haha $14.90 only. I'm getting it.
Me: Yayyyy! Eh I'm not getting it okay.
Her: What size? (#1 ridiculous response)
Me: EH I'm not getting, don't tempt me.
Her: $14.90 and limited edition. (#2 seriously pushing it)
Me: : (
Her: You sure?????????
Me: YA.. I think so : '(
Her: Alright then.
Me: : ''(
Her: Aiyah you buy this then no more after that.
Me: OMG OMG OKKKKK shit... shit.
Her: Last chance now. Nooooo? Yesssss!!!!!!!! (#3 there's no giving up)
Me: Hahahahah what is this.. sigh. Ok no no no no no no I'm going to save money!!!
Her: Hahahahahahahahahahah $14.90 is half the price

And then she finally relents because her phone is dead. The end.

I think it's got to be at least 10 times a week we have conversations like this.. I'm not even kidding. This is what we put each other through (more often her putting me through it though : p)

Sleep is for the Weak

I had such a nice break from doing work / being stuck at home this morning. Le lovely boyfriend bought me a coffee french press (?) so now I can have yummy coffee to keep me alive while I work on the never ending mounds of research and essays and yada yada yada.. Thank goodness I'm finally getting into the swing of things (albeit being half a semester late) and I've stopped sleeping so much. I really need to get my shit together and kick these assignments in the arse to make up for the lack of decency in my grades the last semester.

I'm hoping the weather's going to start getting better this week - more sun, less rain - although the weather forecast predicts otherwise. Meh. The dreary weather isn't going to be helpful at all seeing the number of assignments I've got to complete, pfft.


Can't wait for exams to be overrr! 
So I can finally get started on sketching again!



I seriously don't ever say this enough - I'm soooooooo incredibly thankful for my bff!!!! I really don't think anyone could ask for anything more.

I don't think anyone else would bother with me if I wanted stuff from local blogshops.. much less spend time camping for the launch. And on nights like these when everyone else is asleep my bff's staying up to do work wimme (also making sure that I don't secretly crawl into bed and fall asleep)! Hahaha there are obviously heaps of other things that only my bff would do (read: lug my boyfriend's pillow all the 6000+km from home along with other silly things that I forgot to bring when I left). Although we're pretty much on the way to driving each other to a state of bankruptcy, I wouldn't imagine having it any other way. Ok actually maybe it'd be better if we were in the same country so as least we can pop by each others' places randomly for food or go for coffee runs together or special food deliveries and best of all no dealing with the time difference heh although it's only 2 hours : p

BB I really don't know what I'd do without youuu!!! Hang in there ok you only have till Monday and then you're freeeeee as a bird! And our online date can happen ; )

P.S. Please wear the black shorts in the mean time cuz I owe you!! Heaps.

We're going to try making Martha Stewart's glazed salmon recipe for dinner tonight with roasted veggies on the side! 

And then I'm hoping to get heaps of work done after that. I'm not quite ready for the cold snap that hit Brissy yesterday.. doesn't look like it's going away any time soon. Boooo.. gimme back my sunshine! On a brighter note, it looks like it's pretty much confirmed that the HK kiddies are coming to visit over the winter break! I'm def looking forward to going to Cairns and Sydney and of course taking them around Brissy. I'm hoping some cheap deal for whale watching pops up again soon, I'm dying to see whales!!!!

Will be back soon

Can't wait for exams to be over.
I think exams are the shittest thing created!
They make you feel so horrible about yourself.
And dont get me started on the lack of sleep & tons of coffee & the stress!
Just 4 more days to go tho & 2 more papers!

P.S I'm really sooooo thankful for you <3
Thank you for
- being there
- sleeping outside in the living room just so I wont be alone studying
- making me tons of coffee
And lastly, thanks for being there when I broke down.

Jia & me got sooooo excited when we saw this top on HVV!
Almost look like the top that we both wanted from Zara!
My shopping buddy 4 life! <3

Lesson Learnt

The past few days / hours has been such an emotional ride that I'm starting to think I'm some psycho freak. I can no longer control/surpress my feelings anymore, tears roll down the chin uncontrollably & it is starting to frighten me. I try to keep my thoughts optimistic. But it's hard yknw, when the ONLY thing I'm looking forward to starts diminishing. I know it's my fault & my carelessness that bring me to where I'm now. It is really a huge lesson learnt..

1) Always double check triple check stuff & never skip pointers when I read.
2) Never trust anyone but yourself to do things.
3) Be independent.

I really can't lose this june trip. It meant a lot to me (in fact the most) & I really need this to keep me alive.


God please answer my prayers :(

Still love this pastel pink fridge

Absolute Lethargy

I don't even know why I've been so friggin lethargic lately.. It's like I need a mega boost to get me back on track. I'm so tired all the time it's not even funny. On top of that there's the 101 shitz that needs to be dealt with. Ugh. Seriously could do with some things going well for a change.

There's heaps of work that's beckoning to be done. I really should get started on all of it before I become the fault of my own death. Sigh..

God give me strength

I really need all the strength & power & memory space to go through the next 4 days. I dont know how I'm going to do it but sure hope I will survive! 3 days of jam packed heavy content papers. Sigh pie...
Just the thought of it make my body go weak :(

By friday I will be a happy girl as the last paper is 2 days away & its an open book...

2 papers down 4 more to go.
Sigh. why do I torture myself yet again with 2 electives :(

P.S French paper was a major disappointment :(
It was so damn hard it just killed me.
Definitely not what I prepared myself for.

"The worst thing that can happen is when you give up on yourself"

Thank you sis, for giving me the drive to study once again. You never fail to enlighten me. Thru O's, A's & now uni..

Exams will be over in 8 days! HAHA can you believe that?! I can't! This has got to be the most jam-packed exam. And I'm for once happy that there is no gap days between papers. Cos I can't wait to get started on booking tix for uk & start planning for CSM! ^^

My family had a get-away at mbs ytd! I didnt want to join them at first (since I had paper tdy, yes can you believe it, on a sat?! The sch like to do cruel things to us some times..) but my parents didn't want to leave me home alone cos I was stressing x100000!

I really love it when my entire family is around. I used to take it for granted in the past, but now I know. And the sad thing is every every every time everyone is around, I'm ALWAYS ALWAYS studying for exams. Sigh, sad life of an engineering undergrad.

Haha, look at how happy everyone is! 
HAHA, & can you imagine it is my dad that suggested cam-whoring. 
& there was like this lady standing there taking a video of us :O 
This was the only pic that was "safe" to be uploaded. 

My lil bro is all grown up now!

See, they make me go up to the skypark so I can be the cameraman!

Sissy's attempt at taking arty-farty shot. 

My turn..

We had dinner at Mozza! 
The food was pretty bad that day :( The pizza was really salty.
But the clams were YUMMMMEH! 
We had like 3 plates of this? 


I'm sooo sooo thankful for everything! <3 


The neatest my cupboard has ever been!
Teehee ^^ 
The boyf looking so gd in tux for his performance <3 

I need this! HAHAH!

Oh my gosh.. I'm so relieved (!!!!!!!) to finally be free from assignments at least for a little while. No more late nights, no more having to unwillingly sit myself down for hours on end, no more staring at the screen till my vision goes all blurry, no more paying $3.40/can for energy drinks. Ah, such bliss. The past week has been spent furiously churning out an essay on roles of hotel GM's all because I got mixed up with the deadlines and thought it was actually due next week. Thankfully I found out in time though, or I'd have lost half my grade in a snap.

Now I'm going to indulge this new found liberation and do whatever the hell I please. Come tomorrow morning, it'll be time to start research for another group paper. Pfft.

This has hands down pants down been the worst week I've had in a while. If one more friggin' letter comes in the mail from the Queensland government I think I might faint. Only about a hundred times over. I really don't need / can't afford to have anything more coming from them.

Damnit why do I waste my time?!

22 and Klutzy

Soo a couple of days ago I fell flat on my face while I was walking to the library in school. I have no idea how I managed to trip enough to send all my stuff flying (read: laptop, phone, sweater and bottle). I must've been walking with my eyes shut because when I went by the exact spot yesterday, there was a huge WATCH YOUR STEP painted on the road, in bright yellow no less. Sighpie.. I would've thought that this tripping and falling over business was for when you're younger. But apparently not.. I'm 22 and this klutziness does not seem to be taking itself somewhere else!!

The last time I had a fall this bad and grazed my knee was prolly when I was 13. During PE. Where I tripped over my own foot. Owell.. I'm just hoping that the abrasions and bruises don't take too long to get better. Also am tres heartbroken that my laptop got chipped in the process, sob sob.

Ok time to stop wallowing in self pity. I'm aiming to add another 500 words to my essay before I'm going to let myself get off this chair. Absolutely cannot wait to finally have a breather from this pile of work that I'm practically drowning in neck-deep.

Thank you for doing everything that you do. It's been 15 months so far and today I love you more than ever. This photo is heaps old.. I don't think we've changed very much other than having longer hair now than we did then. Mwuah mwuah mwuah. 

P.S. The laundry's done in the dryer.
