It’s Not Easy To Find Someone Who…

… wants you for who you are

… accepts all your quirks and randomness

… thinks you are pretty amazing

… cooks for you

… brings you to Ikea just because you suddenly felt like eating Ikea meatballs

… carries your heavy Locomotion and Digestion books for you and when you forget to get them back for classes the following day, brings them back for you that night itself

… doesn’t mind waiting for you

… eats spicy food with you because you love spicy food even though he doesn’t

… walks you back everytime

… takes care of you when you are sick

… carries you despite your protests that you are heavy and puts you on his lap

…tries to restore your faith in relationships

… shaves a lot more frequently because you like clean-shaven guys

… accompanies you to meet someone in the city because he worries about you going back alone at night

And the best part is, I did not even purposely try to find that person =D

Boom Boom Pow =D


Byron Bay Day 1

So I guess I was wrong…I did indeed step out of QLD this winter break haha. When Tina asked me whether I wanted to join James’ lifegroup to go to Byron Bay (which I thought was in QLD but is in fact in NSW hehe), I was quite hesitant, on account of me not really knowing a lot of them. But anyway…since I really had nothing better to do, I just said yes in the last minute hehe

The meeting place was Joel’s house. Check out Nellyn’s huge-ass luggage bag…keep in mind that it was only a 2-day-1-night trip haha. I packed super light..didn’t even bring shampoo and toothpaste lol

According to Nellyn this is me ‘possessively holding on to Tina saying ‘My Tina!!!!” but I can assure you that I was not…that’s me cold lol

We piled into 5 cars and drove southward bound. Heh heh want to go to Sydney, anyone?

Reached Byron Bay approximately 2 hours plus later

Our backpackers called Nomads Byron Bay…looks quite castle-like hey?

The lobby…the furniture in the backpackers was funky-modern

Crap…fat arms =/

Room 204 which was the room Jill and I was in. We were separated from Tina, Nellyn, Yen Mii and Li Wen…but it was ok la I guess. Honestly, the place exceeded my expectations haha…this was my first time at a backpackers so I don’t really have any bench mark to compare to..but Becky said that if this was 10 the others would be like 4 lol. Also, the toilets were unisex…but fortunately nothing embarassing happened hehe

Lunch for Day 1- fish and chips from Jimmy’s…recommended by the backpackers staff. It is apparently the nicest fish and chips in Byron Bay but I reckon the best and most worth-it one is Salt & Battery at Hawken Village =D

We headed to the beach after lunch

Joel saw a dude lying down on the grass like this and said ‘This guy’s got the right idea’ and proceeded to lie down like him haha

Check out the lighthouse in the distance =) We went there the following morning to see the sunrise

Our ‘dream guy’ LMAO

Puff-uped seagull

Seagulls lining up to beg for food from the little boy. So guess what…remember my fascination with them at Southbank? Well I’ve changed my mind..cos they are so freaking greedy and they keep fighting for food and I even saw one stealing some stuff from two surfer dudes’ lunch haha. At least they are not as ugly as ibis lol

Kayaking

I love this picture…makes me look artistic hahaha perasan

After that, everyone went to another part of the beach where it was less crowded for activities. I don’t know the name of the beach but I shall call it Dog Beach…you know, like the one in Marley & Me haha

Them playing Captain Ball…I didn’t join in cos if you know me you would know that I’m athletically-challenged. And also, I didn’t bring enough clothes haha. Seriously, now I know how it feels like going to beaches in winter- When I’m under the sun I feel overdressed and when I’m under shades I feel underdressed haha.

Aww…the golden retriever that Tina, Jillian and Nellyn calls ‘Cheryl’ =.= even though he is a boy haha

=)

Another golden! And I don’t know why…but it seems like almost everyone at Dog Beach had that ball thingy lol

Hehe nice huh =D Uhhh…I was NOT stalking whoops

Tina and I memang Siao Char Bors haha

With ‘Cheryl’!

Awwww

Us making ‘Pepper’…This Pepper is Pepper Sand and not Pepper Choong…cos I don’t want my Pepper to be washed away lol.  Anyway…Pepper Sand generated a lot of publicity because random people came to check out what the commotion was about (us screaming cos the tide was getting higher haha) and apparently they liked Pepper Sand cos many of them took pictures of her =D

This has got to be the cutest picture of the day =DDDDDD Real doggy checking out sand doggy hehe

James going ‘build a wall!!! build a wall!!!’ hahaha

And the wall plus drains apparently succeeded =D

Ahh….James falls victim to the ‘toss-in-ocean’ game XD

Them semangat-ly building other animals. Uhmm…of course I didn’t have the patience haha. I mean, even the sand castle I attempted to build with Yen Mii was a disaster lol

Jillian’s bunny

Bye Dog Beach =) How I wish I could bring my Pepper Choong here lol

What did I tell you about the design in the backpackers haha

Barbeque for dinner

Tina and Nellyn playing ping-pong while waiting for the food to be cooked. After that, Nellyn played against James and James played against an Aussie dude who was playing sambil holding a bottle of beer haha. Then James played against another Aussie dude who was younger and looked quite cute and was super holiao. The 4 of us girls couldn’t take our eyes off him XD

After-dinner drinks haha…Smirnoff Ice and Bundaberg rum & cola

Games before we went to sleep hehe. Oh and for the record, we won =D. Fine la it was a nerd game… but still..lol

ps/ a few pictures courtesy of Li Wen..thanks =)


Dreamy Sleepy Not!

Can someone tell me why exactly Dreamworld is called Dreamworld? The thrill rides there are so awesomely-scarily-mind blowingly-thrilling adrenaline pumping that I wouldn’t imagine anyone would be dreamy afterwards lol

I didn’t really manage to take a lot of pictures that day, especially the ones with the rides.

Dreamworld’s at Gold Coast too and I went with my vet gang. It’s $69 for a daily pass but because we are UQ students it’s $58.65. It really pays to be a UQ student in QLD haha…for example, in cinemas here, UQ students pay the least…even less than high school students or students from other unis here =D

The 3 of us were supposed to meet Tina and her cousin Samuel who is from Melbourne

Jill trying to reach Tina

The Claw! This is the second ride we took…holy crap! It’s one of the top 6 scary rides there

Cyclone which is another one of the top 6 rides

Wipeout which was the first ride we took haha…also a top 6 ride, but it wasn’t really scary, honestly haha

Nellyn’s turn to try to reach Tina lol

After taking Wipeout and The Claw back-to-back, we (namely I) felt dizzy and nauseous so we decided to slow things down a little. We took the train in the park to the wildlife place

Tina and Samuel

Us three…and I look sleepy lol

Murky waters haha and ducks, pelicans, storks etcetc

Can you spot the mandarin duck? and check out the other ducks sleeping curled up in balls =D

Tassie devil with a botak patch on the tail lol

Koalas!!! ❤ Sleepy heads they are…they sleep like 22 hours a day or something like that haha

What a precarious position lol

Crocodylus porosus haha nerd mode

Red kangaroos! This is the first time I’ve seen red kangaroos here, you know, those huge ones always depicted in movies and documentaries. Previously, in Australia Zoo and Brisbane Forest Park I had only seen wallabies and the other smaller species of kangaroos

Dingo!

Heh heh imagine the poor dingo waking up to find another dingo’s butt on its face =P

White tiger

Holy crap this must have been the scariest ride in the whole park!!! It’s 39 stories high =O There are 2 rides on that huge-ass pillar, namely the Tower of Terror and the Giant Drop. And I’m very embarassed to say that I chickened out of taking the Giant Drop…. =/ Me!! Who took the Superman ride in Movieworld back-to-back. Oh well, I reckon if Chong Hao and Haziq were there to hype me up I would have taken the Giant Drop lol

But I did take the Tower of Terror ride though, it’s freaking fast and I reckon it looks scarier than it actually is haha. Of all the top 6 scary rides in Dreamworld, the Giant Drop was the only one I didn’t take

*Ohhhh who lives in a pineapple under the sea???* hahaha I like Spongebob…but I can only take small doses of him…I remember falling asleep when watching the movie at Julia’s place lol

Jillian, Nellyn and I took this non-scary, non-chikek ride to chill haha

Remember Chuckie from Rugrats?

Bye Dreamworld haha. I think I won’t be going to any theme parks in a while though, can’t believe we actually covered 4 theme parks in just 1 sem


Exploring Brisbane City!

I’ve been here since February this year, and at first sight, I loved Brisbane city. I was awed at the sight and the sounds- you know how much I love cities. However, after the novelty has worn out, ‘going to the city’ mainly means going there to shop/ eat/ hang out. I hadn’t even really explored much of the city other than the usual places we go to. So one fine day (heh heh like an essay), nero, tino, jiro and chero went exploring the city, with the help of a map and our trusty human GPS =)

First stop: Albert St Uniting Church

Only Tina, Jillian and I went there because Nellyn woke up late lol. We didn’t go in because it wasn’t open yet. A pastor (I assume) came out and invited us in but we were paiseh…and this may sound really bad, but we were also afraid that we would be stuck listening to him preaching and not know how to politely excuse ourselves ehe

Brisbane City Hall. This picture taken from the pavement outside Albert St Church

Inside city hall. The stairs lead up to the Lord Mayor’s office hehe

Old-school lift buttons. We were going up the place to take another lift up the clock tower

Old-school telephone booth and the girl who likes to take pictures with every single thing =P

We went up the clock tower on this very old-school lift (no kidding! It’s been around since 1930)

Check out the Albert St Uniting Church =)

The bells

One of the clock faces taken on the way down

The MOB (Museum of Brisbane) is also situated in the city hall (admission is free! in fact, all the touristy places we went to that day did not have admission fees…which is what I love about here hehe)

Scary much? XD

Next, we went to the Anzac Memorial Square (Tina and Jillian had planned the whole itinary for the day). I had been there before but they hadn’t

This flame never goes off

Central station opposite memorial square

Koala House? Haha wonder what they do in there…

Tina and her metallic foxy boyfriend XD

St John’s Cathedral =D My first time going to a really old-school church…you know how most churches nowadays are only normal buildings? Especially in Malaysia. I’m no christian but I really think old buildings are cool haha…uh except haunted ones T.T This church is so old-school that the bishops and other people whose titles I don’t know sorry ehe wear those ceremonial robes during service..that’s what I heard la haha.

St Martin’s House opposite the church. I reckon the bishop or whoever important lives here lol

Me loves this kinda architecture =D There were pews too! Pews!

OMG a real pipe organ!

The cathedral is an Anglican one and even Queen Elizabeth attended service here in 1954! Please excuse my use of ‘!!!!’ haha

Stain glass windows

Crap I am short T.T

Us cloud-gazing while waiting for Tina to go to the toilet haha

View of the cathedral taken from the park where we had lunch prepared by Tina =)

Remember how I always thought that this was City Hall? On account of how the city halls in Batman and other superhero movies always look like this. It’s actually Customs House

See? Haha and it belongs to the all-awesome UQ! I don’t know the purpose of Customs houses though…but there are restaurants and function rooms inside…that’s all I know lol

After that we took city cat from Riverside to Southbank

The Ferarri that so many people were clamouring to take photos with. People! It’s just a Ferarri (muahaha berlagak..haha just kidding) Anyway…I reckon the stretch pink hummer was cooler =D

We went to to Queensland Museum at Southbank. Heh I know it makes us sound so nerdy…going to two museums on the same day. Some people who think they are cool wouldn’t even be caught dead in a museum right? Anyway…let me tell you a little secret…we are boring nerds who are secretly very very very awesome XD

Jill and I doing nerdy stuff ie trying to remember the different types of dog bones we learnt and trying to apply them on dinosaurs >.<

I reckon Queensland Museum is pretty amazing =D Much more interesting stuff compared to MOB. But the cool thing about these two museums is that they change the exhibits, which is more that I can say for the museums back home. Also, I don’t remember….but we have to pay to get into museums in Malaysia hey?

=D I love taking this kinda pictures lately haha

Clouds on fire!

We went to the casino for dinner and Jill treated (or ‘shouted’ as the Aussies say it lol) us on account of our bet that says whoever gets 7(s) for the 1st end of sem exam has to treat the others. And btw if you are wondering (and you probably aren’t haha)…I got a 4 (chun chun pass haha…BIOCHEM what..what more do you expect lol) and 3 6s (distinction! haha telling my parents I got 3 distinctions sounds better than 3 6s)

$10 each for a cake, main course and coffee/ mocha/ hot chocolate/ tea etc because we signed up to become members hahaha. it’s $14 for non-members. WTF would my friends/ family think when they know that I’m a casino member =P

Salmon quiche

Beef carbonade

And after-dinner drinks at Batavia =D

I had chocogatto that I had been craving for days

Lemon Lime and Bitters recommended by your’s truly =D

Mochagatto

On the way back from Southbank to the city to catch the bus back to Indooroopilly (which I waited for 50 minutes on account of it being a Sunday and also it was the already the last bus), saw this different lighting of the casino =D


Of Flowers and Ferry Boats

Because us vet kids have so much time in our hands this winter hols due to the no boyfriend/ family coming to visit us, not stepping out of QLD, no part-time job, we went on a picnic! Or something close to that haha

But first, we went to the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium cos it was nearer to the carpark. Nellyn drove again whee

It was quite small though, only circular. But what I like about the touristy attractions here is that there is no admission fee haha.

Nellyn and Jillian were very semangat and interested. But to Tina and me, everything just seemed really colourful and sparkly and pretty lol

Some famous Russian astrology dude whose name I have forgotten ehe

Next, we went to the Mt Cootha Botanical Gardens. I always thought that there was only one botanical gardens here which is the one in the city but this one is wayyyy huge

Nell and Tina were excited over the dandelions. In fact, they were super excited over many many things that day and kept asking me to take pictures of the posing with those objects of interest haha.

Woo…acrobatic eating!

The orchid and cacti place

LMAO check out the last sentence =O

I don’t know this is the try ‘yang keberapa’ lol cos we kept trying to include everyone in the picture….uhmm this will be a recurring theme throughout the day haha

Not posing

Was probably pointing at this very salah-looking cactus..eww haha

Us carrying the lunch lol

Tropical dome

Most unflattering angle everrrrr…eww

Cool fern leaves

Inside the fern house

Camwhore opportunity haha

Orange tree! My first time seeing an orange tree lol

Lunch time Take 1 failed. We had African sausages (huh? haha but they were nice nonetheless) and mash potatoes and gravy prepared by Tina and Jillian, salad made by Nellyn and chocolate chip cookies and Cadbury Flake bought by me. Heh heh proves who is the laziest of the bunch huh =P

Take yang I don’t know keberapa still fail haha

Japanese Gardens! I love these gateway thingies. Have you been to the Japanese Gardens at Bukit Tinggi? That one smells nicer haha

LMAO this picture made Tina, Jillian and I laugh non-stop XD

Smooth-looks-like-been-sandpapered tree

Bamboo plants that have been vandalised =/

After that we got tired and lazy so we drove up the remaining of the gardens (which was still a large portion of the whole place)

Freedom Wall commemorating the sacrifices of the Australian Armed Corps in World War II

Totem poles! But it smelled really really really bad there, which makes me wonder whether the lake is an effluent pool lol. However, there was still an ang moh couple chillexing/ cuddling/ sun bathing in the vicinity =O

Sounds somewhat morbid, hey? =P

Macro shot of this ‘could possibly be a sakura flower’ plant turned out quite well =D But seriously though, don’t sakuras grow on trees in Japan during spring? Operative words here being trees, Japan and spring haha

Nonetheless we were fascinated =D

Self-timer haha

Edward Cullen wannabe =P

They were also fascinated with this ‘rusty-cave like hole-whose purpose is unknown’ =.= I laughed for a full minute or two when the asked me to snap this picture lol

Us on the Aboriginal Art Trail

No more pictures of the trail because Nellyn and Tina dropped the camera I myself have never dropped before and I was pissed off/ scared I would cry/ scared I would scold someone/ simtia lol. You know how protective I am of my stuff >.< But it’s all good now, because even though my cammie has two small indentations at least the lens wasn’t damaged =)

We still had time so I suggested that we take City Cat to Apollo Road which is the last stop and back again for the view

We waited for the City Cat at Guyatt Park. I am such an artistic stalker =P

Sunset ❤

On the way to the city

The bridge connecting the city and Southbank

Kangaroo Point

Story Bridge

Customs House at Riverside that I used to think was City Hall…you know, cos the city halls in Batman etc always look somewhat like this lol

=D


Road Trip To Gatton

Nellyn borrowed her housemate’s car for the day and the 4 of us plus a very lucky guy, James drove down to Gatton…presumably to check out the on campus accomodation and Gatton Town…but we got sidetracked many, many times haha. That’s the whole point of a road trip anyway…so yeah =)

And oh…if you have been reading my blog for some time, you would know that I am dreading the prospect of moving to Gatton next year lol

Driver number 1: Nellyn Tay!

Us in the backseat

On the way to Gatton. In Malaysia if you are on the highways you would see oil palms and rubber trees but this is what you see here

Haha Koo and Shen love this kinda scenery

Optimus Prime OMG!!!! Haha lmao

We saw this sign along the way and thought of checking out what they had. I didn’t know that people eat emu meat…but I guess it’s an Aussie thing hey…I mean, I’ve eaten ostrich before anyway.

Lol James was taking this picture and then he went ‘Aahhhh they are coming really near’ and Nell and I freaked out haha. Oh yeah, some of them did this weird dance that I teased Tina was a mating dance for her hehe. And when we asked the lady in the shop she said that it was indeed the mating season now muahaha.

Them emus

Emu feathers, egg shells and meat for pet consumption for sale. The lady behind the counter even brought out the emu meat for human consumption for us to see

Choosing stuff to buy lol…Tina bought an egg shell for her bro. The lady told us that an emu egg is equivalent to a dozen of chook (read: chicken) eggs =O

Just as we were leaving the place, I saw this horsy! So pretty….haha we think it’s a paint horse but we’re not sure…I suck at horse breeds =.=

Heart shaped ❤

There was a Shetland pony too (okay…I think I’m correct about this lol) and Tina was in her ‘I wanna kacau all the horses’ hair’ mood haha…check out how the pony is looking up like ‘where’s my hair??????????????’ =D so cute

They were both so fat I reckon they had a body condition score of 8 or something hehe

James was quite scared

We left the emu farm and saw a place selling fresh produce. Next to it was the building above. The bakery sold sausage rolls for $1 (in Brisbane it would be around $2 or more) and pies for $2 (at least $3 something here)…we went to check out the saddlery because…who has been to a saddlery hey? =P

On of the displays outside the saddlery

The lady who owned the shop asked me to try it out lol…and I was so ‘cho lor’. When we asked her how much it was she said that it costs $3500 =O and I was like ‘OMG I’m sooooo sorry’ heh heh. Apparently it’s made of real sterling silver and Toowoomba leather. She was so nice..she owns a Quarter horse stud and she even showed us the pictures of her horses and taught us about coat colour…which is such a relief because it can be so daunting especially for us who have no exposure at all…and during Animal Husbandry lectures there are so many other classmates that own horses and ride and take part in dressage etc T.T and we know NOTHING compared to them

Horsey stuff

The building next door selling fresh produce

Check out the prices =O

=O

=O

Finally we reached UQ Gatton campus. Is that a silo???

Horsies!!!!

LMAO Nell and James look funny XD

Gatton campus is huge…considering that there are only so few faculties there. The buildings there are very far apart though. They even have an environmental park there…we saw something huge and shaggy running around and I was ‘OMG what’s that what’s that????’ and it turned out to be a sheep dog running around gila-ly lol

V-shaped formation =D

We saw a hare (OMG A HARE!!!! I HAVE NEVER SEEN A HARE BEFORE) running across the road to this place over here and we were trying to find it haha. We are such city-kids hey

After that we went back to where they coralled the horses and this horse approached us =D

There’s a shaved patch at its neck because I reckon they took blood sample from it

=DDDDD I love this horse…so friendly and sweet awww. Imma learn riding next year! I wish he was mine T.T

Hahahahahaha so funny la this picture

XP

This horse was next to the horse above..and what did I say about the whole ‘kacau horse hair thing’..she wanted to nerdy-fy the poor thing >.<

Bye baby T.T

Awww sho shweet =D

Sheep! we couldn’t get near them though because once we got near to them they all retreated to the far end =/

Haha busted!

Dairy cows! I love Jerseys (the brown one)…they have such sweet faces haha

Nah…karma…nerdy-fying Tina XD

My boots after a day of traipsing around lol

=D

Pretty hey haha

Driver number 2: James Gan! hahaha he actually deleted this picture because it’s somewhat embarassing but good thing I had already copied another copy in Jill’s pendrive heh heh

On the way back we stopped at another place selling fresh produce again. OMG THE PRICES..

We bought these and shared amongst us lol..the lady at the counter didn’t charge for the 9cents avocado Jill wanted haha

We bought these too..why are they so cheap??? why??? isn’t it even lower than the cost? haha

Hasil hehe

After that I fell asleep and when I woke up we were already at La Dolce Vita =D…no pictures of the drinks (they had buy 1 free 1 for non-alcoholic drinks for uni students that night haha) but here are the pictures of the pastries and cakes we shared =D

Chocolate cannolo…my favourite OMG. The texture of the chocolate is oh-so-smooth and mmmm sighhhhh haha. Too bad they didn’t have the peach Galliano that Chong Hao recommended

Rum-baba (spelling?) recommended by the very cute and friendly waiter…when you eat it every bite is soaked it rum haha

Passionfruit torte..the least special amongst the three but still quite nice nonetheless

Oh well, Gatton’s not as bad as I thought…Gatton town was quite ok too, way better than what I expected because it’s sorta like St Lucia..bigger than Hawken village definitely. They had KFC, Maccas, Coles, Target, Ezy video etc…so I guess we can still survive there. But for my own sanity I reckon I need to go back to civilisation every other weekend =P will see how it goes lol


Hanging Out With The Koo Sisters

Koo’s sisters Boon and Yee came over to Brissy and we went out together for a few days =D

Harbor Town

In the train to Gold Coast (this was just the day following the Sea World trip lol..spent so much on transport =.=)

The Koo Sisters

Hahaha of course we are happy at the prospect of shopping!

We had lunch-ner at Coffee Club…funny how when you shop the food you had wayyyy early during breakfast can sustain you for such a long time

Seafood Basket $14.90 ($12.50 upon presentation of tourist priviledge card lol) and the sandwiches that were $9.90

nomnomnom

Pretty clouds at dusk hehe

Mt Cootha

That night Chong Hao fetched us to Mt Cootha which offers a panoramic view of Brissy! We were super tired by that time but when we saw the view everyone became semangat again hehe. It’s usually quite difficult to get to Mt Cootha if you don’t have a car…there’s public transport but not at night.

=D but seriously though, my camera does the view no justice AT ALL. In real life it’s probably 1298893 times more awesome haha

The restaurant atop Mt Cootha…and a dude using super pro camera…I bet his pictures turn up wayyyyy better than our’s

Yupyupyup Mt Cootha’s also known as One Tree Hill, not just that basketball show with Chad Michael Murray in it hey

La Dolce Vita

After that we went to Park Road which has lotsa nice cafes

Little Paris =D

It’s a bit weird though that there’s a mini Eiffel Tower at La Dolce Vita..because La Dolce Vita’s Italian and isn’t the Eiffel Tower French? Why not the leaning tower instead lol

The ambience there was really nice…romantic and laidback hehe…can phak thor there XP


The pastry menu mmmmmm

Hahaha that’s the propreiter of the place I reckon..he was so funny. And check out the waiter’s expression…super cute!

I had the Hazelnut Italian Gelati Shake $5.95 (quite affordable if compared to Batavia..but the portions at Batavia are larger)..it was really nice…there were small nut pieces in it hehe. Everyone else loved it too lol..But I just came back from La Dolce Vita again with Tina, Jill, Nellyn and James and it didn’t taste as nice..why? and the other people didn’t like it =(

Chong Hao and Koo had the iced chocolate, also $5.95

Officially our favourite beer lol

We shared a bake cheesecake

Cool tabletop =)

Steamboat at home

Group picture!

We had a simple steamboat…oof don’t think I can type about food anymore…I feel super hungry now =/

Sisters Boon and Yee, I hope you girls had an awesome time in Brissy =D



Foody Sleepover!

36 hours dedicated to buying ingredients and alcohol, chopping, marinating, mixing, cooking, baking food, eating food, drinking and watching movies haha

Shen and Koo went to Gold Coast for whale-watching which I was oh-so-excited about in the beginning (and I still am ehe) and Dreamworld over the weekend with NGO from Brissy, Melby and NZ but I opted out…because I was (and maybe still am) in my antisocial phase sigh. So I was gonna be alone for a night and the prospect kinda sucked. Hence, I invited my Vet Gang- Tina, Jillian and Nellyn over =)

Shopping at Woolies

This is only like less than half the stuff we bought…we spent a total of $108.80…enough to last 4 NORMAL people with NORMAL cravings and appetites for around than 2 WEEKS =.= and it was only for our 2 DAYS wtfness =.=

Anyway…this was our lunch-ner for Friday: Chicken cordon bleu, oven-baked Italian style potatoes (hehe this was just the instant Birds Eye one…but it tasted really nice ) and a fruit salad

watermelon, apple and strawberry fruit salad with vanilla cream..hehehe

Muahahaha looks pretty hey

Customary group shot that would become apparent over the 2 days haha

Chicken cordon bleu…OMG right???????? we made our own chicken cordon bleu using chicken schitzel, ham, swiss cheese and breadcrumbs mixed with lemon rind, salt and pepper

Cheeeeeesssssyyyyyyyyyyyyy ❤

We ran out of dishwashing liquid and went back to Indooroopilly mall again to get it after that haha. We also got some alcohol ahem

After coming back we started on our cinnamon apple crumble! Me kneading the dough for the crust haha

I know! Unbelievable right =P

Jill cutting the Granny Smiths

Cinnamon sugar for the filling…mmmm I love cinnamon haha

The epitome of improvising lol…that’s me rolling the dough using a Vodka Cruiser bottle muahaha

Our baby in the oven haha..looks not bad right lol

BUTBUTBUT when I took out the pie I held it the wrong way and the whole pie dish fell from my hands! I think both Jill and I (Tina and Nellyn went to life group and to buy more ingredients haha) watched in horror as the pie dish slow-motionly dropped. Good thing it dropped on its butt and not the top phew….so it was still very salvageable. When the other two came back they even said that it looked pretty lol…until they saw the ‘before’ picture haha.

Eating minty bubbly chocolate while watching Masterchef while waiting for Tina and Nellyn to come back

Preparing dinner! Hehe holey cheeses are funny for me cos they are so cartoonish

Dinner of cinnamon apple crumble, Doritos with melted cheese and ham served with hot chunky tomato salsa and the fruit salad from lunch

Happy when there’s food lol

Even better with vanilla icecream hehe. The downside was that the crust was too thick and too hard..probably cos we baked it an extra 15 minutes for fear of the apples not being soft enough and also we made double the amount of dough suggested for the crust cos Nellyn was afraid that the amount of dough suggested in the recipe wasn’t enough to hold the filling. However, it was an awesomeeeeeeee first try I reckon =) *proud*

Heh what did I say about customary pre-eating group picture haha

We watched Addams’ Family and 10 Things I Hate About You that night

Breakfast for Saturday morning while watching She’s The Man

Lunch of chicken and fish katsu (we still had lotst leftover breadcrumb-mix from the chicken cordon bleu), mountains of salad (Tina!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and home-made oven-baked potatoes with melted cheese and chunky tomato salsa

Ho hum…

Heh heh…but it was shared among the 4 of us so it really wasn’t much…

Muahahaha minum sikit sudah ade PINK ROSY CHEEKS XD

“I feel dizzzyyyyyyyy” heh heh Tina drank the least lol

Dinner of  Tom yum with bihun and chocolate-dipped fruits

Tom yum bihun with chicken, mussels, prawns, squid, mushroom, wombok, carrots and baby corn =D

This one’s the nicest of the group pics cos it was taken by Ms Koo instead of Mr Self timer lol

Phooo….freaking full…2 days of eatingeatingeating lol

Contented face haha

Hmm…I am freaking bloated and FAT. I reckon I need to fast T.T. But honestly though, if this were to happen on a frequent basis (We are probably living together in Gatton if we stay off-campus lol), I would be twice the size I am now in no time at all

On another note though, the food was undeniably fabulous heh heh


Sea World!

Went to Sea World on June 29th with Shen, Chong Hao, Sze Luan, Danny, Swee Kee, Jessica and Emilia. Remember the $70 ticket for Q150 that we bought? Well, Sea World was the only world that we had not gone yet. Kai Xiang was supposed to join us but he was going back to Malaysia the following day and he was afraid that because of the lack of rest will jatuh sakit and kena quarantine in Malaysia T.T Dude, you seriously missed an awesome day lahh

On the train to Gold Coast..journey took an hour plus

Sea World!!!! Most of the people there were families with little children, unlike Movie World that had mostly teenagers

Pink tights haha

The first thing you see when you enter is this huge-ass man-made lake for Waterski Wipeout and that’s when you realise that Sea World’s the biggest theme park among the 3 haha.

Pelicans…they stank T.T

I love this picture lol. There was this short cable car ride that extends from 1 end of the theme park to the other end. My camera beh pai la haha

The first show we watched was the seal show..

HUGEEEE seal haha

“Talk to the hand” XD

*clappity clap*

Paiseh…seriously though, how did they train all the seals? It was so awesome…they were so cute and blubbery haha. There were a lot of others but I reckon the huge one was the watak utama (sastera, anyone? haha)

Sesame Street Beach…the budak place with all the budak rides

Nice angle =D

Uh..the second show lol

Check out the audience…we were the oldest non-child-accompanying people haha

But these two die-hard Sesame Street fans were very excited…and they even sang along haha XD

The person inside Elmo was oh-so-flexible lol..I reckon it’s a girl…oh a super gay guy..sorry =P

My favourite!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The dolphins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so happy and in awe OMG. My genetics lecturer studies dolphins…can I study dolphins too? haha. Anyway, I remember seeing a dolphin show in Sentosa, Singapore when I was 12 and this one beats that hands down lol

Wheeee

Dolphin surfing haha…The chick was standing on two dolphins…how??????

Back stroke lol

Did I mention that I love dolphins? ❤

I have a very flattened face…I am well-aware of that haha

Unfortunately my camera’s battery sorta died after the dolphin show because I did not recharge them. The following pictures (other than the last 2) are courtesy of Swee Kee…I stole them from Facebook heh heh

The rides! We only managed to sit 2 rides…the Jet Rescue which is the newest and coolest ride was not operating =/ Sea World is more visually-orientated I suppose..cos the main attractions are the shows and the animals…but they have a few rides too..and these rides are not as thrilling or scary as the ones in Movie World

Cyclone…not really scary..this one’s the first 3-loop-cyclone in Australia/ QLD though

Polar bear…kesian la alone only..and it seems quite hot inside =/

Penguins! Haha there are tiny hey..at first I thought they were all babies…but apparently this species is naturally tiny and they are only found in Aussie and NZ. Seagulls are slightly larger than them and 1 stood near them and the ones on the shore started to huddle together and some of them even jumped into the water hahaha so funny cute

The shark reef aquarium was really cool too…Reef ray says hi =D

*cue Jaws music*

What fish is this Gabriel Tan???? Looks so weird right? Chong Hao them said that they are flower horns but I thought flower horns are aggresive? And how come these ones look so…armoured? haha

So excited going up the cable car hehe

View from the cable car…there were dolphins in the water haha

While waiting for the last show we went to, which was Waterski Wipeout

Floating car! We saw people wake boarding, surfing, waterski-ing etc….those people were pros!

And the most awesome trick..human pyramid =D

Ahh…what better way to end the day than with pictures of sunset taken from the monorail  station =)

Coast of gold =D
