Monday Blues and Exy Dinner at the Cube Hotel

Stone-grill dinner at the Cube Hotel
The Monday blues seem to strike me down pretty hard today. I was struggling and having these mixed feelings in my heart and mind (not gonna elaborate much about it here, sorry). "Like the marathon, life can sometimes be difficult, challenging and present obstacles, however if you believe in your dreams and never ever give up, things will turn out for the best." So, here's a little reminder to myself DON'T SETTLE, CHRISTINA! You know you'll make it, someday...

Last Saturday, we dined out with our good buddy at the Cube Hotel downtown after coming back from the Sideshow Alley. Mr. Choo opted for Fitzy's at first, but unfortunately the restaurant has already been booked out, not surprise, since it's the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers that brought in a massive huge crowd and traffic to the Garden City.

Everything was fine (in spite of the still-bearable loud music in the background and the overly priced menu) until I carried on with my main which close enough to killing my taste buds.

Carnival of Flowers: Sideshow Alley in Queens Park

Queens Park: Carnival of Flowers
Instead of going for the "routine" Floral Parade of the Carnival of Flowers like the past few years, we skipped it and brought ourselves to the Sideshow Alley at the lower Queens Park yesterday. I supposed it would be nice strolling and shooting under the bright sunny weather and it indeed was! Despite a little bit of spring heat which made us sweat like summer, I was not hating it at all.

North Stradbroke Island: The Headland and Wild Kangaroos

North Stradbroke Island Day Tour
I'm writing this as if my nose was literally detached from my body right now. Since the past few days, I had to depend on either my mouth or saline and medicated nasal sprays to breathe through my nose. The most horrible thing is, the burning sensation in my nostrils each time after use, it's killing me! *teary eyes* Anyways, back to the topic, we left our footprints on the headland a couple of months ago, overlooking the 32 kilometres beautiful Main Beach of Stradbroke Island.

Sushi and Movie Date Night

Dinner at Hana Japanese Sushi Restaurant
I came home feeling unwell after work yesterday. Constant sneezing, runny nose, and mild fever all attacked me at once, which nevertheless can be considered as good timing since I'm having a day off today. I spent the whole morning and afternoon sleeping and resting myself until around dinner time, Mr. Choo took me out for sushi (apparently I was sick of having porridge) then followed by a movie date watching Resident Evil: Retribution in 3D.

Stay Healthy with Golden Circle Healthy Life Probiotic Fruit Juice

Stay Healthy with Golden Circle Healthy Life Probiotic Fruit Juice
I've been so caught up with work and engaging myself with all sort of gatherings and events lately that I haven't really had the time to write up for this Product Talk by Nuffnang, my sincere apology. All these while, I was unaware that Golden Circle is actually a subsidiary of the US-based Heinz Corporation until I came across Golden Circle Healthy Life Fruit Juice, the only probiotic juice of its kind made available in-store on 14th May 2012 (my birthday coincidentally, hehe) in Australia.

Friends' Graduation Ceremony at the Empire Theatre

USQ Graduation Ceremony 2012 at Empire Theatre
Woke up on the right side of the bed. What's up with this Prince song inside my head? Hands up if you're down to get down tonight, 'cuz it's always a good time... I've been waking up with this Owl City's song playing in my head over and over again since the arrival of first day of spring.

Sleeveless skater dress in turquoise, half-sleeve short coat and open-toe pumps in black, embellished by a gold with pastel colors necklace. Pastel and fluorine seem to be the new color trends of spring and summer 2012, I did not fall behind on adding a small dose of them in my outfit today.

So what's the special occasion? Friends' graduation ceremony at the Empire Theatre! You don't get to see me with make-up everyday, it's rare, like once in a blue moon, and I actually forgot to put mascara on *facepalm*

Park House Cafe Restaurant Toowoomba

Dinner at Park House Cafe Toowoomba
I had a rough morning yesterday, food poisoning, again!!! I felt nauseous not long after I started working, abdominal cramping, then diarrhea... I hated it every time it happened ='( Fortunately it wasn't that critical until I have to be rushed to the hospital or something (thank goodness!!!), so I just stayed back and finished whatever I was supposed to do that day.

Around afternoon, I took a cat nap with world war 3 going on in my stomach still, woke up feeling way much better afterwards and decided to join this dinner outing with our friend at the Park House Cafe.

As we walked into the restaurant, our noses picked up a very strong fertilizer (or was it body sweats) smell. Most of the "ideal spots" were either taken or reserved by others, we sat down to a corner table, waited a while before Frank actually showed up with a bouquet of flowers.

Outdoor Barbecue at Picnic Point Park

Outdoor Barbecue at Picnic Point
We had a joyful outdoor barbecue with friends on last sunny Sunday at the Picnic Point Park. It was quite a last minute invitation and we just rocked up both empty handed. Oh well, we did bring our big bulky camera and some toys for the kids along with us.

First Day of Spring: Meet Fresh (鮮芋仙)
Annyeong haseyo, September! Hello spring, goodbye winter. September is finally upon us, bringing lots and lots of warmness to the Sunshine State of Queensland. I feel blessed waking up to a gloriously sunny day with an abundance of beautiful scenery every morning, so sweet and loving. If you notice, not only my mood has been greatly elevated, our weekend trips to Brissie have also multiplied.
