My boi giving me a hand on grilling the food.

I found something "cute" in the laundry area just now, hidden right behind the washing machine. It looked so familiar, just like those we saw in Sydney Wildlife World.

I just get to know that today, 22nd of November is actually Winter Solstice (冬至) about four hours ago. Immediately, we headed out with the intention of buying some coloring to prepare sweet glutinous rice ball soup. It was 9.45 pm that time and most of the groceries shops already closed, except those at the service stations. With no luck at all, we couldn't find any coloring products but to stick with its original color, which is white.

We were supposed to buy multi-color Christmas lights for our Christmas tree yesterday, as Liho told me that they were selling reasonably cheap at Coles Grand Central. But, as soon as we get there, all of them were already sold out. With no other choice, we continued searching for the item we want in Target. And guess what? They were selling at over $40 even after discount. We ended up buying heaps of Christmas hats for everyone who attends the Christmas dinner.

This is my first time decorating a Christmas tree. We got the 182cm Christmas tree and the rest of the ornaments and decorations for less than $30 only. And of course, it's not one of those fancy Christmas trees, but just a simple yet inexpensive one.

I'm not sure if you would still remember the Christmas pressie that my boi gifted to me about few days ago, simply click here if you totally have no clue what I'm talking about. It was a pair of GUESS earrings which shares the exact same design as this necklace.

Again, we paid a visit to Hog's Breath Cafe Toowoomba, the one located at the opposite of Toowoomba Bus Interchange. Surprisingly this time around, both the presentation and the taste of the food have slightly improved since our last visit here, which happened about one year ago. Honestly speaking, the restaurant serves (most probably) the best steak in town! Let's see what we've got for ourselves tonight...

Christmas is just around the corner, and it's time to prepare yourself for the traditional "Gifts Exchange" with your dearest ones. So what would be the ideal gifts for them? Any idea? Well, my boi has gifted me one gorgeous pair of GUESS drop earrings that I adore so much!

Ajisen Ramen is the Japanese fast-food restaurant where we had lunch during our shopping trip in Brisbane's Queens Street Mall. The dishes they served here were pretty good actually, just hop in their restaurant located at 414, George Street of Brisbane CBD, if there is an opportunity. And before I go on any further, I have a confession to make... I made a terrible mistake that day. I nearly got myself killed shopping and walking in 3-inch high heels for God-knows-how-many-hours, not to forget the painful experience I had in a public transport when traveling from one place to another. I swear to God, the same stupidity will NEVER EVER happen again! Anyway, back to the food we ordered again...

This is another random post, accompanied by a random photo, taken on a random afternoon. It also happens to be the beautiful sunset I mentioned in my 1853rd tweet on Twitter just a couple of hours ago. We've moved into a new unit recently, but still living in the same area though. Nice room, nice carpet, nice environment (peaceful and quiet), and absolutely nice view too!

There are two major types of pearls: salt-water pearls (Oriental pearls) and fresh-water pearls. Today, my boi has rewarded me a pair of white pearl earrings, they're just fresh-water pearls of course. Apart from that, I've also got myself a pink floral top and a pink little dress that I adore so much ;) I know you wanna see them too, but I'm too but I'm a little bit sluggish now. Just wait for my upcoming post, will ya?

I feel so tired lately, too tired to cook after working for so many hours, everyday. Hence tonight we made up our minds to dine out at Qi'lin Chinese Restaurant, avoid the hassle of preparing dinner.

My "shopping mode" has been automatically turned ON lately, most probably due to the Christmas atmosphere around us. Come to think of it, Christmas Day is just four weeks (exactly one month) away from now. Don't you feel like shopping too? I bet you really do! And as promised in my earlier post, I'm gonna share those two items I got from Brisbane as well as the others I got in Toowoomba.

We were in Brisbane yesterday, spent hours shopping at Queens Street Mall. Aren't you curious what's inside those packages I got from Nine West and GUESS outlets? Just stay tuned for my upcoming post! ;)

If you are a member of the USQ Student Guild, I'm sure that you've got an e-mail from Matthew Hogan with the title, "FREE MOVIE TICKETS! - Zombieland" just about yesterday. Not sure? Just go ahead and look at the 50214th e-mail in your mailbox. Since now you've noticed about the existence of such e-mail and its contents, all you need to do is to send an e-mail (doesn't matter if it's blank or whatever, as long as your e-mail address is there) to this person in-charge requesting for free movie tickets.

Yeppie!!! We've have eventually made it through the end of semester 2... I shall say bye bye to exams, say hi hi to summer holidays now! Aren't you feel happy for me? Late last night, there was an After-Exam Party going on at Cynthia's place. She invited most of us and her several other close friends to the party which was supposed to start at 10.30 pm. My boi and I arrived there a little bit late as it took me about an hour-long just to put on some light make-up (I'm just a beginner, please don't laugh at my filthy make-up, k? I've already tried my best, I really did). Anyway, this is just a quickie post to keep you updated and most importantly is to make sure that none of you would forget this chubby little face of mine. Happy Holidays ;)

Yesterday afternoon, my boi and I dropped by Kenneth's place after we did a little shopping in Grand Central (I'll share with you the items I've bought in my upcoming post, be patient k?). We hung around there for a LONG while (a few hours maybe), then only we headed off to K-Mart for some groceries together with Kenneth and the rest.

Highland Fling is the steak and seafood restaurant located at the corner of James and West Streets. I was once there for its Sunday Morning Breakfast which was very very delightful. And last night, my boi decided to take me out for a "sumptuous" dinner since it was the Melbourne Cup Day yesterday.

Most of my friends around me know that I've been working really really hard lately. I'm sure you wouldn't wanna know how many hours I work in a week. And after work last night, we had a less-than-three-hour mini Halloween party over my place. None of these was planned as I was extremely tired and sleepless that day. But still, I wanna thank you all for showing up at my door.

We watched two horror movies today, one was in 3D while the other one was not. For students, you're required to pay $15.50 only for each 3D movie ticket rather than $18.00. Don't you feel all excited? We can now watch 3D movies here, not Brisbane, not Gold Coast, but Toowoomba !!!

After spending half an hour admiring the fireworks displays at the riverside, we moved on to the next event - Brisbane Festival 2009’s opening night celebrations. Can't you see how excited everyone was?!

Shopping is women's nature, I'm pretty sure that most people would agree with my saying. Nowadays, not only girls like shopping, even guys can't resist the sweet temptations. To make sure that you're not becoming one of those big money spenders, you need to know how to shop wisely and controllably. I'd would also love to share some of my shopping items with you, which includes the floral scarf and the blue casual sleeveless top I'm wearing above.

A week before my boi's graduation day, we went on a little shopping trip to Gold Coast and I got myself a set of Lancome make-up products. It was my very first set of make-up products! No kidding!!! I only put on make-up like once in a blue moon? But now, I think it's necessary for me to pick up some make-up tips and tutorials.
Guess what my latest obsession is? It's Avatar: The Last Airbender!!! The American animated television series has three seasons with sixty-one episodes but I've only watched all the episodes of season 1 and 2 so far and I loved them to death! The characters in this series are irresistibly, undeniably cute and funny, especially Momo and Appa! I really feel like squeezing and cuddling them in my arms...

Finally, our 3 days 2 nights trip to Gold Coast has came to an end. We had seafood (heaps of them) and we had lots of fun screaming our lungs out at Dreamworld and Draculas Haunted House. Apart from that, we also went for a little gambling (but no luck at all), sang karaoke for hours (until I lose my voice), did some shopping in Harbour Town and many others. It was all about fun and more fun!!! I really wish to do this again, in the summer perhaps?

These are some nice and simple home-cook dishes which I've prepared recently. Although I love cooking so much but sometimes, I really have no idea what to cook as I'm doing it quite frequently. Don't you ever get bored having the same food over and over again? Well, I do. I'm still looking for new recipes, is anyone of you willing to share some with me?

A few days after I lost my mobile phone, we found the opportunity to get back to Brisbane again with the mere hope of being able to see my Motorola L7 again. Unfortunately, things don't always go right all the time... I didn't get to see my mobile phone, not anymore!!! It was gone, forever gone!!! My boi was pretty sure about the place where he left the mobile phone behind, but by the time we went back to that karaoke restaurant. The person sitting at the counter just showed us his dishonest face and left us with disappointment.

On 22nd of September, we celebrated Liho's birthday in conjunction with Henry's and Crystal's birthdays. We've only bought pressies for Liho and Henry, as we were totally unaware that it was a birthday party of three.

The very first and last time we visited Angelo's House Restaurant was exactly one month ago, in celebration of Chinese Valentine's Day (七夕). Last Sunday, Albee invited two of us to join her and Mandy to have lunch at this Italian restaurant again as she was very much allured by those food photos I posted in my blog, after our first visit here.

Regardless of the fact that I'm down with flu, cough and sore-throat. But still I'm capable of preparing an all-seafood dinner together with my boi. We spent less than AU $50 on the ingredients, including the seafood, herbs and sauces.
