  1. a wrap for 2012 (:

    Thursday, December 27, 2012

    Hellos! I am back as promised (: before my Sydney trip which is coming up this Saturday! Seriously.... So can't wait!!

    My Christmas was spent pretty nicely this year. Had a proper Christmas dinner with the boyfriend, aunty D and Julian. A proper family Christmas dinner completed with a roast duck and turkey roll fully prepared by aunty D.

    Woke up around 11am on Christmas morning and was out of MA with the boyfriend at about 12pm to head over to my place for dinner. Tapao-ed hungry jacks for lunch and spent the afternoon helping aunty D with a little bit of cooking preparation and then the both of us went to nap until it was time for dinner. HEHE!

    Look at the scrumptious feast!

    Cantonese style roast duck, potato salad, roast butternut pumpkin and sweet potatoes, Thai prawn mango salad and turkey roll with apple and cranberry stuffing! Yumsssss!! One man show by aunty D ok...

    Was super full from all the food but still had to leave some room for the tim tam cheesecake that aunty D made. It was a non baked cheesecake.

    It was yums but it is abit too rich. Can't eat too much... ):

    Called it a night soon after dinner and spent the night watching runningman with the boyfriend in my room. Until we felt hungry at about 12 in the morning, we went downstairs and had the leftovers from dinner and continued watching runningman until about 3am or so then we went to bed.

    Christmas gift from the boyfriend and a gift to myself. Both from forever new. The mini make up brush set is from myself and the pretty bow clutch that can also be used as a sling bag is from the boyfriend ((:

    My new iPad sleeve! Cute snail on it! (((:

    Woke up about 730am yesterday morning cause we were heading out at 8am to catch the Boxing Day sales. Me and aunty D were heading to DFO South Wharf in the city and we dropped teck wei along the way at southern cross station for him to catch a train home instead of coming to shop with us. Aunty D was like trying to persuade him to come along with but I am pretty sure he will be bored to death if he would have came long.... I saw so many bored guys sitting outside the fitting room and the shop. Too bad for them HAHA!

    Boxing Day shopping outfit! (: Peplum top and patterned skirt! <3

    We hopped from DFO South Wharf to DFO Essendon to Highpoint Shopping Centre in a span of 11 hours ok.... I was so so exhausted by the end of it!

    Once I got home, had dinner, took pictures of my haul... Then online for awhile in bed with the ipad and I fell asleep just shortly after for like 5 hours straight. The next thing I know.. it was already 1 something. Which I then stayed up till about 4 something before falling asleep again till 1030am.

    These are the items I bought on Boxing Day!! The bargains I scored!! So happy leh....!!

    Finally bought the fossil bag that I have been eyeing for a long long LONG time! RRP is for $300 and I got it for $90! ((: Fully leather and so my type! It is a navy blue altho in the pictures it looks almost black thanks to my room lighting for picture taking. Bought a giraffe print zippy wallet for $24 from fossil as well. The fossil item are my two most favourite buy of the day! Two tops from forever new in grey. One $5 bodysuit and one $15 embellished tank with beads all over the front. Three statement necklaces of which one is for mum and all at $5.

    My first bought Swarovski earrings for $20 (((: It is a long dangling earrings of clouds with a pink rainbow. It is dual sided, one side is silver and the other is black. And both sides have the crystal pink rainbow. Super cheap leh for $20! It was actually retailed for $120. My second favourite buy for the day! (: Bought a earring storage box for an aunty and lastly a $5 chocolate scented moose for my nephew! :DDD

    Had lunch planned for today at the very last minute at 1 something in the morning when I was up. So... I left the house at 11 and was in Melbourne Central by 1145am.

    Managed to spot Yao yun in a crowd just by staring at her red pair of converse shoes! Looked up from the shoes and straight away saw her hahahah! Wei ping and wei bing came shortly after and we adjourn to centre place off bourke street for brunch.

    Brunch was at grasshopper's feast! I felt like having zucchini and corn fritters (:

    After brunch was just walking around aimlessly with Yao yun as wp and wb went shopping.....

    And stopped by at gong cha for a drink. Earl grey milk foam tea with white pearls (: but I still prefer the wintermelon tea better.

    Took our drinks to Melbourne central and sat under the clock for almost two hours just chatting away! She's leaving Melbourne on Saturday already... So it was like a catching up before she heads back to Malaysia. Although I will be heading home as well on the 8th of January. Hahaha!

    Then we went for some more aimless walking before we parted ways around 430pm as she has other plans and I was gonna head over to the boyfriend's. Goodbye loy! See you back in Malaysia real SOON!!

    Finally got over to MA around 530pm and then died on the bed for awhile before I started cooking dinner.

    Dinner tonight was sambal prawns with onions and ikan bilis and broccoli. I really like my own cooked sambas prawns leh! Prawns cooked to perfection (: wheeeee..!

    I'll be off from cooking duty for 5 days as we will be heading to Sydney the morning of the day after tomorrow (Saturday) and tomorrow's dinner with be back in my place (:

    Yay to super makan spree when I get to Sydney! :DD So far all I've planned is to where we are going to eat. I haven't even look up on the vantage points on where to watch the fireworks. All I know is that the best spots are usually the super crazy ones.... I need to be prepared soon! With rugs, an umbrella, sunblock, ipad, food and drinks and just camp out there and wait till midnight.. Lots of planning needed leh.....

    I'll most likely be back only after my Sydney trip sooooo... Happy New Year in advance peeps! Be jealous of me because I'll be spending New Year's Eve in Sydney watching fireworks shooting off the harbour bridge!!! (((: HEHEHEHE

    I am now going to cherish the remaining days of the year with the boyfriend <3 Hope you guys had a great 2012! (:

    Till next year,
    sher xoxoxo.

  2. graduation season.

    Sunday, December 23, 2012


    i've been so busy for the past week! graduation season and also been out almost every day. never really had the time to sit down and blog. whenever i am back at the boyfriend's, i am either watching show or munching on food. HEHE

    and whenever i am home, i'll be busy napping or lazing around and also procrastinating on cleaning up my room. then... i am finally left with one night before i move to the bf's for a couple of days and then i'll cram everything i have to do in one night. which is cleaning up my super duper messy room and packing. therefore, blogging has to come last when i am really really free.. HEH!

    first things first, last monday meet up with yao yun and wei ping for brunch!

    so glad to have my yao yun bb back in melbourne! (: tho we don't meet up that often but it is still nicee...

    we went to Twenty & Six Espresso because i have been going on and on about it being very nice to the both of them before this. hehe

    i ordered The Hunter! super yums leh!! its chorizo and mushroom with balsamic glaze and topped with grated cheese.

    also ordered a cup of mocha, heavy on the chocolate.

    wei ping ordered The Russian. which was also very nice!

    yao yun ordered the three eggs omelette, Le Alumelle.

    after makan was just shopping around the city.

    saw this guy on bourke street. basically he looks like he isn't sitting on anything at all. everyone seems so fascinated by it. waving their hands thru the bottom and see if its really real. haha!

     my shoes for the day! super love the colour and it is so comfy! mocassins are ought to be comfy anyways (:

     bought this dress for $10. yao yun bought the same one but in a burnt orange and we both wore it straight away after we paid for it. haha! i have been hunting for laser cut dress since like forever! finally found it for $10! which explains why i bought another in royal blue :P

    meeting up with yao yun also means that i was gonna collect my ipad. so happy!!! love my new cover also! been hooked on it with the ebooks! (: thanks to mummy dearest!

    okay... back to graduation season!

    last tuesday was the boyfie's graduation! so proud of him leh! i wouldn't even dream for the day that i would even graduate with first class honours and this smarty pants boyfriend of mine did it! SO PROUD!

    i got over to his place first thing in the morning. woke up super early to get ready by curling my hair. but the curls only lasted for a couple of hours... ):


     my love! 

     when yao yun came over, she brought along a bear that she bought for herself for her graduation the next day. but she gave it to teck wei to use it for temporary prop HAHA!

    yy darl! two important people in my life! 


     Mr Lim Khai Shien! mechatronics engineer (:


     oscar (: who has now went back to Macau for good. don't know when i will see him next..

    The S9 monash 2012 engineer graduates! macho ken.. HAHA!

    wei nian, tek yit, dear and jia shen (:

    around 3.30pm we went in for his graduation ceremony. we as in me, his mum and sister. it was nice attending it (: 

    in the graduation program.

     look look! the boyfriend on stage! thank god we got the high balcony seats which makes it easier to take these photos but we were seriously super far behind. haha!

     his hundreds of thousands worth degree certificate.

    we even took some studio photos as well. but it costs a serious bomb! sitting fee was already $40. JUST to take the photos! and individually developed photos are priced differently according to size. cheapest also $35 for a 4R photo. and these photos were taken off the website so it has the watermark. to get a digital copy you need to pay $65... such a rip off! IF you get a whole CD of the pictures, it's $300! CRAZYYYY expensive!!

    but what to do... with monash you couldn't hold the robe for more than 5 hours. they isn't any way to get a photoshoot or go and take your own cheaper studio photos...

    a few of my favourites. lovely photos (((: especially in the blue background. some people get horrible shade of black/grey. i am starting to blend in really well with his family! WHEEE :D

    and then last wednesday was the rmit and yao yun's graduation.

    first was lunch with the bf and wei ping at darac.

    then i went to meet up with loong to take a picture with him (: finally got to see him!

    then then i went over to the royal exhibition building for yao yun's graduation.

    yao yun darl (((: glad to have been there!

    wei ping darling! so cute (((:

    i didn't manage to catch hold of Audrey and the other S9's tho. had some stuff going on and i left early. sorryyyyyy...)):
