Be A MaN or LadY, hit the button, and cast your votes!

Okay people, I'm extremely bored lately! No replies from job applications, a couple of rejections. Life is very demoralizing at this stage. People say, "Bi Ye Jiu Deng Yu Shi Ye", how true is that! By the loved of God, I finally received my Bridging-Visa for my Aust PR application only to find out that they give priority to Overseas Sponsored Student Visas and My normal Overseas Student Visa will have to wait for bloody 4-5 months processing! Darn, if I had only known earlier, I would definitely go through the "already countless" troubles to get my uncle to fill in the sponsorship form. So I'm sick of applying for jobs and thought I'll take a break to update my deviant art port folio: and figured maybe another way to earn some extra cash could be to sell my prints online. So all you people out there, feel free to cast your votes and help me make the decision. Many thanks!

Selling prints on Deviant Art

Do you think I should pay to subscribe to Deviant Art and sell my design prints online?

ISA Culture Night Ball 2006, Continued problems that never seemed to end, Money isn't everything, but hey! we can't do without it too.

Last Thursday was Culture Night'06. So here goes, enjoy the pics cause I guess, in the near future, there ain't gonna be much exciting and colourful updates. Sweet pea darling surprised me with a corsage again, just like he does for every other ball since I've known him. *muaks*

The performance as usual, was an important thingy to me; thus for the constant practices of the MTV which had to be different from the actual S.H.E MTV because it involved two gay guys, so the plot was changed. Thanks to Chun Yau, Wendy and Wantheng for being my actors and actresses for the night. Their nervousness eventually wore off on the actual performance and they did pretty well. Only thing, I was really pissed off with the two blokes who operated the Audio system, they forgot to turn off the right channel, so I had to pitch my voice louder to overpower the voices of S.H.E. Ain't too happy about that error, since it was like my last performance for a university event. (*_*) Will try to put up the video recording here soon!

And so, some of the other performances that night which include a funny play as well. Check out the pretty costumes everyone was wearing and Sindhu won the Best Dressed Award; third indian girl from top left. Don't ask me what my costume was cause I really can't pronounce it correctly. Apparently it's from Northen India as Preeti told me.

With my good friend and ex house-mate Henrie, then Sheali and I, just being vain girls on stage during the Best Dressed Awards, since Gee "forced" us up there. And of course, my charming darling, the ISA President giving his closing speech.

Apart from that, life is still the same: waiting for a reply from DIMIA, waiting for replies for my job applications, worrying about darling since exams are coming. And I'll be taking my driving test to convert to a Victorian License soon. Just passed the Hazard Perception Test last week with the MCQ Computer Test coming this Tusday. Mean time, I've been reading books on Resume Writing, Interview Skills and English Improvement to prepare for the IELTS Test, which is compulsory for all General Skilled Migration Visas. Little things here and there just to keep myself occupied and being sane. Haha.. ;p

Happy Birthday to Evon(Today's her big day!) and Sheali's bday celebrations, "I want to get my arse cracking on some job soon!" and the long wait.

Life's been pretty much mundane and repetitive lately and this is probably the reason for the little updates. Let's rewind back a couple of weeks ago to Sheali's birthday and the Crown trip on 23rd April. The food and desserts were awesome as usual and Gee planned a birthday cake surprised for Sheali from the staff at Crown Buffet. The cake looked and tasted good, but everyone was definitely stuffed from all the food that in the end, it was given to the waiters and staff instead. After when the 4 hour curfew to remain in Crown premises were over, we headed to Club Odean for some quick drinks and clubbing - the warm up before the drinking party back home. And thus, we also caught the birthday girl in act dancing on the podium and flaunting her sexy black outfit that night. Lily and I tried to join her as well, but the bouncer said only one person was allowed at a time. So we left the birthday girl "performing" up there. Back in South 9 that night, we played usual drinking games and for the first time ever, we found out the meaning of "what happens when Sheali gets wasted". And no, I shan't go into details...


Well I also finally met up with my God-ma and pa, Helen and Michael. Missing them heaps! Darling and I brought sheali, audrey and liddie to their house for a cuppa one night after church and Sheali noticed that their son Phillip was cute, haha. We have been wanting to arrange for a proper dinner, which I hope, will be real soon.

The rest of the weeks passed by with the submitting of job applications, supposingly window shopping that didn't really work, baking and baking of pastries and tarts by Joewiz. It's really sucha big stress looking for a job round here, cause they are so limited. And no matter how good an application letter or resume is written, I could only picture the employer putting aside the papers after reading the "on bridging Visa awaiting Australian PR" part. Very few companies want to go through the hassles of work visas and stuff, guess they'd rather just hired an aussie. And so I think it's about time I stop lazing around and start selling my stuff on ebay. I just have to get it started, yeah.. I'm getting there...

Well, meantime I continued with my hobby of Photoshop and thought I would make use of this skill of mine to help Henrie in her assignment which she needed to finish in that tight deadline; cause she just got back from Hong Kong and they pushed forward the submission date. So, enjoy the graffiti, but remember, its copyrighted! By the both of us.. haha..
