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?
