School’s out!

September 24, 2010

I better put some photos up here before I really get too lazy…..

Today, I submitted my first every university assignment. 2500 words, 2 nights without sleep and 3 pages of Harvard referencing and its finito~

Hanhui and I celebrated with huge-ass milkshakes at one of the school’s many outdoor cafes. :)

Started taking pictures around the campus because it has finally dawned on me that I am graduating this semester!!! Considering tomorrow is the start of the mid-semester break, I technically only have half a semester to working life. *groans*

Came home and saw the love letter Cheeleng has left me, it suddenly dawned on me that she will be in Perth for the next 2 weeks!!! My other housemate’s suitor flew in from Singapore and she was out too… :( fantastic start to my holidays hur?

Had dinner and movie with KS at South Bank.

And for the first time, I paid for my own make-up! Usually daddy picks it up from airport duty free or mummy pays the tab on one of our many shopping trips. Powder ran out this morning so a trip into city, I pointed to this (because of the bling bling mirror box).

The EFTPOST machine read AUD63. I didn’t know my make-up costs so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lucky I didn’t get a few more items because I totally forgot to transfer this month’s allowance into my spending account and it would be a mighty embarassing affair if my card got rejected. Zzzz.

Anyway, although I ain’t going to Perth, Sydney, Melbourne or Cairns like all my friends are, I am looking forward to the week long break here in boring St Lucia. :)

Back to reality

July 29, 2010

3 flights in 5 days is just plain horrid. Aeroplanes and me don’t go well together.. :(

But holidays as usual are always awesome. For those who didn’t know, I have been in cold cold New Zealand the past 5 days. Living it up in 5 star hotels with huge plush beds and room service was really really really fantabulous. But the waking up at 6am to embark on our daytrips was a chore. Joy Joy ain’t a morning person.

Still, the scenes I saw blew my mind. Snow-capped mountains for as far as my eye can see. Lakes so huge and still, a perfect reflection of the beautiful scenery. Hmm, shall let pictures do the talking when we finally sort out the 1000+ shots. :)

Came back to Brisbane and was greeted with a very dirty bedroom. Who knew dust collects so fast?! Just vacuumed the floor, washed my bedsheets, wiped all open surfaces, etc. I feel like Cinderella past midnight. :(

School tomorrow. 3 day week! Yayness~

Easter holidays are huge in Ozzy. Supermarkets stock chocolate eggs in all sizes and colours, bunnies with bells and bunnies without bells. And we got a whole week worth of holiday (more so exam study week thinly-disguised as a much deserved break).

But with proper time management (I did study hor!) we found some time in between to head out for a little R&R.

FYI, all this happened in April before the weather turned chilly.
