    hey guys!

    oh my god i am so frustrated by the heat right now. so freaking hot! it is 26 degrees and much cooler than yesterday but it is still so hot! urghhh i feeling like shouting at someone right now because i don't tolerate well with the heat. even my laptop is so heated up right now that it is so uncomfortable to type on.

    malaysia is hot. but we have air conditioner back at home. so things just works out and it is actually pretty nice to stay home. but here, i don't have an air cond and all there is, is just a cooler and it is NO WHERE near an air cond... and summer isn't exactly here yet because it isn't december yet.. ok fine tomorrow is the 1st of december already. hehe!

    but you see.. for the next couple of days we will be getting a cool change of a temperature slightly below 20 degrees. i guess my wish came true :D

    i've said this so so so many times. i am seriously not looking forward to summer at all.

    because when it is really really hot like yesterday, at 38 degrees, things breaks down and people get frustrated and moody. i took 3 hours to get back from the boyfriend's place because there were problems with the public transport. due to the heat that caused power loss and things like that. for the first time ever that it took me so long and by the time i got home, i was so pissed and so frustrated and so tired....

    if i were back home in malaysia, i could have easily drove over to ipoh and ate nice food with that amount of time to just travel back from clayton.

    ok.. enough of the heat. move on to happier things like good food and shopping! :DD

    wednesday was Melbourne Central's VIP sales day. and i had brunch plans with celine so it would work out to be yums food in the morning then go shopping cray cray.. (:

    was suppose to go to cumulus inc but they were already all sold out of breakfast by the time celine got there at 1130am. i really wanted to try their eggs 65/65 or more known as sous vide eggs! you know... eggs cooked at 65 degrees for 65 minutes? hmm some other time i guess.... but i will definitely try once! altho i am not a fan of running yolks.

    so we changed plans to eat at degraves street. but after scouting all the places on degraves there wasn't anything that caught our eyes so instead we just walked a little bit over to centre place and had our brunch at Lorca.

    and my eggs benedict. i personally think the hollandaise sauce could be better.

    and also my soy chai latte! love it when it is freshly brewed instead of the yucky powdered one with cinnamon powder on the top.

    celine's big breakfast.

    brunch was good (: i enjoyed my soy chai very much. but the eggs benedict is just normal. mediocre. nothing really to shout about.

    spent the whole time eating(duh!) and also catching up. i haven't seen her for sometime and so there was a lot to talk about.

    then... we headed over to melbourne central to check out the sales! first thing we did was queue up for photobooth pictures :D

    i love photobooth picture strips! they make such good memories! and its free so of course we HAD to! but i personally just like the second picture and seriously not a fan of the last picture. my tongue looks retarded. HAHA!

    after that was just checking out shop by shop and see what the sales are like. and also collecting freebies along the way. it makes shopping funner! (:

    these were the free stuffs we got for the day! haha especially love the glittery nail stickies from mecca.

    i had my fair share of buyings and also bought two blouses for mummy. and the good part about the blouses for mum is that it was just at $6 each and i think its really pretty :D

    after shopping, we were going to meet up with sheng nee. and i really wanted to try Wonderbao so thats where we went! i was so happy that i finally got to try wonderbao! :DD

    they only sell baos and soya milk and other cold drinks. i would personally spell it as pau but anything would do. i think they only have 8 baos on their menu which i forgot to take a picture of.

    the three of us ordered the cold soya milk.

    one thing about the soya milk is that there isn't enough sugar. i found it to be a little tasteless. and after the overwhelming tastiness of the baos, it is almost like there isn't any sugar in it at all. can get a little hard to finish the drink.. at least in my case i didn't manage to finish it.

    and i had two gua baos to myself. oh my so yummy!!!

    a tea time meal for $11.

    i loved it! like seriously loved LOVED it! it was goooood and it was worth my $4 for each. the boyfriend thinks i am crazy to pay $4 for a pau but it is really good! and so... i don't mind at all!

    the tofu was really crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. the sauce was so tasty! and the touch of coriander and the preserved vegetable and peanuts just brought out more flavours! omaiii writing about it is making me salivate.. HAHA!

    it was literally finger licking good!!

    sheng nee ordered their choy bao and taro bao. i only tried the taro bao and it was good. the fragrant was impeccable and also the texture. i am not really a taro bao kinda person but i would i prefer this taro bao than any other plain lotus paste bao of any kind.

    i am sure to be back! and to try more baos! this makes a good snack and keeps me from just going for sushi rolls. was so happy by the end of it! HEHE

    after our little catch up, i left to clayton and spent the night with the boyfriend. ended up going to clayton town for dinner and grocery as well. and the rest of the night watching Ted and eating meehoon at 2am in the morning. his mum cooked for him because he was feeling hungry. ahahah!

    left at about 4pm yesterday and the rest you already know. i got stucked and was only home 3 hours after.

    had a slice of quiche lorraine for dinner then headed over to highpoint with aunty D to escape the heat. and did a little bit of shopping as well. bought a pendant for mum and also some $15 bras from la senza. totally totally love la senza bras! :D HEHE

    my buyings for the past few days.

    the geometric black and white skirt is from ebay and its from h&m and i love it! floral shorts for summer and statement necklace from valleygirl at no more than $10. the two patterned blouses and pendant in the middle is for mummy dearest. the gold embellished lace tank and the mint green aztec peplum is from temt for $14 each! :D i finally found the exact mint green aztec peplum!!!! my size, the right material and also cheaper! WHEE!! :DD

    besides the heat, everything is good. i've finally watched once upon a time till the episode up to date. and now, i am just waiting to watch vampire diaries and greys anatomy in a while. can't wait for vampire diaries! Damon is finally going to be with Elena! :D Ian Somerhalder is just too good looking and so perfect on the outside :P

    byee peeps! till my next random thoughts! :D

    with love,
    sher xoxo.
