The Easter Hols, A guilty shoppaholic & her "nutsy" chaboh and some pissy stuff.

Image hosting by PhotobucketHappy Belated Easter everyone! It's the Easter hols this week... I didn't do much important stuff except shopping, watching movies/DVDs and getting hooked on my new PC game that darling bought for me last week. For those who have lab blocks during this easter hols, "Hey you have my consolation, hang in there.." Darling will be having his as well either next sem or his last sem, so we're not gloating over other people's misfortune right now. Then we had the Easter celebrations that came and went pretty fast. Not so much about standing and kneeling for the Stations of the Cross where it was like back in Malaysia, but we actually had people carrying the cross and walking to different places here. Easter vigil was same as last year; We had candles lighted at certains times of the Mass during different bible readings. I'm glad I still have Audrey and Liddie to go to church with me back here and I'm sure they are too! "Right? No need to walk anymore.." *winkz* Anyway I guess it was a best friend's email that prompt me to update my blog today. "Yes babes(Len), I'm missing you heaps! Your long email is very touching.. *sniff* Come back soon!" We are shoppaholic "fanatics" who share the same taste and so we get a different colour of the same blouse sometimes. Without her here, no one's been watching horror movies with me as well and worse of all, for the first time she ain't gonna sing with me for uni events. :( Yeah she might be a confusing woman at times, but no woman deserves to be lied to. Although I'm not exactly sure about certain events happening around here, I just feel that when something is over, it should be forgotten cause it ain't worth missing at all. New friends will never replace old pals/chabohs/pooh-gang just like there is only one "-mel-" and any new person with similar sounding names shouldn't use the same nick.

Alrightz, enough of the "preaching" round here. Some of the updates for the week besides attending church included going down with the current ISA committee to Caulfield for their ISO meeting, finally submitting my PR application (yippee!) and down city on Tuesday for more shopping of clothes, Crown and stocking up on the asian groceries. For the first time, we actually brought Sheali to Rock Kung, the famous Hong Kong restaurant in Glen Waverly known for it's Roast Pork and Duck. *mmmnnn yummy* That girl really lurrves her rice! :p

Some other micellaneous topics: The publication of the 2nd issue of the ISA Nexus Newsletter. Anya did a good job, what with the colour printing and stuff especially for Culture Night; though I still like the first original Nexus logo. But what to do? Sheali's laptop "couldn't handle" the Macromedia Freehand software after she took over from me, so the logo kinda got "chak-chak" as the newsletters went by. But it's all good, at least the name still stayed. *smile* Then there was darling being pissed off by having aquaintences waking him up in the morning thinking he's a Taxi Driver or some sort. He was like, "What the hell? I don't even know her!" Never piss the man when he's still in bed. : I mean he's fine with friends or his housemates asking him early before hand to pick them up or whatsoever, but absolutely not for other people who come knocking on your doors only when they need help. *quizzical* I mean, "what's going on?" (#.#) And when in city on Tuesday, we weren't exactly happy when some Public Transport officers came on the tram and book us for not validating our MET card. I mean we haven't got the chance to do so and now we are innocently gonna get a fine for something we didn't do wrong, it's not fair! Ain't gonna write the details here, too pissed about it already. *pout* So this isn't exactly a good week yeah? Although darling and I did win $23.40 in the tattslotto last Saturday...

A Belated Birthday Treat, Back In Melbourne and Stuff to settle among the Fun

My first post back in Gippy... I'm really growing spider webs outta all the boredom here. Erm, cocoons anyone? Anyway, blame it on the jetlag or something, I've been sleeping most of the time the pass one week. Yeah, the cold rainy weather especially helps make the bed even more comfortable and irresistable... But I decided to stop being a *piggy* for today and change the design of my blog. It doesn't look like it's got much changes, but I actually spent the whole day on it. Or.. erm maybe I was on MSN too for abit.. *grinz* ('',)

And before I continue, some pictures taken when I was still back in s'pore...

Had a post birthday celebration with my secondary school friends when we finally met up after a couple of them managed to pull some time away from their busy schedule. I've got another bouquet of flowers for belated prezzie and Crystal Jade "Xiao Long Bao" Restaurant was pretty nice to offer me a small size complimentary cake. We ate heartily with the delicious "Zha Jiang Mian", "Xiao Long Baos", Fried Red Bean dessert etc; one of my many indulgences before I came back to Melbourne. *yummy*

Image hosting by PhotobucketOn the last day of work, I also went round saying good bye to my colleages at the office. It wasn't easy and I really felt a tinge of sadness even though I've only known some of them like a couple of months. They were so friendly and we clicked pretty well. Some of the others include a couple of shots I took in the previous post at the NATAS Travel Fair. Some of them were saying they barely had the chance to go out have lunch or something with me, to get to know each other better and I was already leaving. Honestly, I was really having mixed feelings that last few days before coming back Melbourne and I really had the thought of maybe applying offshore PR or something instead. Plus, I absolutely miss my parents so much, especially my mum. We would go for Sat/Sun masses together in church and since I'm not around now, she has to go to church alone. *sad* :( But I made sure I listen to her and I did went for confession back here last Sat. Father asked me to pray for blessings for my family this easter and also he'll pray for me to find a job soon. More Easter ceremonies coming this week and I'm looking forward to it... Anyway, I couldn't quite describe the feeling when I first saw darling at the airport. He seemed so familiar yet so distant. And I finally understood the feeling when couples seperate for a couple of months or more in different countries and then meet again. But the familiarity soon got back fast enough as all the past memories started flooding back in the car. *contented grinz*
Image hosting by PhotobucketIt felt great to be able to do our usual stuff together again. We had our long talks, hugs, and chilling out together, plus dinner with friends and even his housemates this sem, who were fine people. We dreamt of our 21 million tatts lotto together and missed it by just a number for a $30 prize... haha.. We went for movies and shopping as well, but always not forgetting to call on friends to come along as well. :) Ice Age was an absolutely funny movie. The silly squirrel still never stops at anyting to get his acorn. I shall not say too much, go watch the movie okay? Sheali reminded me to get the plushies which came with any Popcorn & Drinks combos purchased. Lucky for me, Jess and Chun Yau were not into toys, so I managed to get the whole set. Well of course apart from the fun, I went for my medical check up and x-ray as well. Getting ready all the stuff to submit my PR application. Have been praying every night things will turn out well, and so has my dear mum & dad who worries for me all the time. *muaks* Love you all loads...

P.S: One of my chabohs looloo coming back, make sure Len fits in your suitcase okie.. heee.. and *oops* I promise hubby to help him with his assignments, I better start soon! :x
