Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Happy New Year to all my Chinese family & friends! I trust all of you are enjoying eating other peoples food, drinking their alcohol and taking their money.

My family has been sending me photos of the reunion dinner food for hours, it’s so cruel! I had leftovers from lunch for dinner tonight… lovely.

I predict a lot of babies will be born this year, it seems to be a trend with Chinese people, to have dragon babies. I’m not entirely sure why. Wouldn’t you much rather a dog or a rabbit? Or at least something that doesn’t breathe fire, have wings, scales AND claws?! To each their own, I suppose. However, having said that, one of my best friends is a dragon baby, as is my closest cousin… and my own father. And I love them all to Pluto and back.

Anyways, some Sunday music for you to enjoy 🙂

Love.

Trink, trank, trunk.

Got a text from one of my oldest, dearest friends (who left me here to rot over the summer – may have to rethink the ‘dearest’ part of that sentence) yesterday saying – “Jet skiing at the yacht club today with everyone today, wish you were here.” … well screw you dear boy, screw you.

Here is a photo of a tree… because I can’t offer you a picture of a bunch of beautiful people jet-skiing. Me? Bitter? … never.

Hope you have a lovely week, readers! May some kind stranger put a smile on your face today 🙂

Homesick Sundays

20120109-002513.jpg

Sunday’s always, without fail, make me incredibly homesick.. and it doesn’t help that all my homebodies who are usually here have gone home for the holidays, or have moved to Paris (WHO DOES THAT?!)

I actually really, really enjoy being alone, but not having the comfort of them being a drive away makes me feel really uneasy. I suppose I’m lucky that my girls have found themselves such lovely boyfriends who are making it a point to take me out so I don’t die of loneliness haha, but they too, are leaving next week…. I should just take the plunge and buy a dog, they never leave.

… I also walked into a sliding door today.

Yeah.

So dinner was a success (thank god). We ate ourselves into food comas and spent a lot of the night stagnant on the couch mumbling about… I don’t even know (excessive amounts of food tends to mess with the way my brain functions… quite drastically, evidently).

Merry Christmas!!!

Hello my lovely readers!

Here’s wishing you a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

Tonight I’m cooking dinner for my darling friends, who like me, are family-less this festive season. My father has told me to call ahead to book a few hospital beds, but lets hope it doesn’t come to that .. and if it does, then less responsibility next year! (there’s a bright side to everything, isn’t there?)

Pictures tonight! … Or tomorrow, after the insanity that is Boxing day sales!

Love, peace and christmas geese! x

A cinema amongst the stars

Nestled safely away from prying eyes, above the hustle and bustle of Melbourne city is this gem of a place.

It required a stupid amount of exercise to access (6 stories up = 12 flights of stairs! Plus an extra 2 to get to the rooftop!), needless to say the lactic acid in our legs were on full blast and our thighs were BURNING by the 4th flight… but it was totally worth it.

Happy birthday PBK. I love you long taim! 😉

Sneak peek!

Today I laughed and cried and ate and drank to my hearts content… And then some.

It was the most beautiful wedding I have ever attended, the bride was stunning as were all THREE of her designer gowns.

Its weird to think that once upon a time we were bratty kids holidaying across the globe in matching pirated Disney pajamas (our parents were incredibly cruel) and now shes this beautiful bride in her gorgeous wedding dress on such a magical day.. and uh, well I’m still a bratty kid and no one seems to want to wear pirated Disney PJS with me anymore. Weird.

There’s something special about watching a childhood family friend walk down the aisle, it’s like a little piece of genuine happiness. These people, they are family.

More pictures tomorrow. I am exhausted! Hope everyone had a lovely weekend 🙂 xo

My girl, A.

Gym date!

20111214-111226.jpg

Following my fourth and hopefully not final installment of a certain Miri girl, vegetating at yet another coffee shop (best past time ever) yesterday, I spent TWO hours in the gym doing combat and attack classes with this nut… And today my body is paying for it.

Granted, I am still in bed but the odd little shuffles and stretches I’m doing to keep comfortable and the pain involved in that is a clear indication of what’s to come post-wake up… A day filled with pain and regret.

In other news, my folks are arriving tonight! I’m a clingy kid and they’re only here for the wedding so I’ll pretty much be glued to their hips for the entire trip.

*inserts fathers irritated face here*

Yay!
