Sofra Turkish Restaurant: Chap Goh Meh Dinner Joy

Sofra Turkish Restaurant: Chap Goh Meh Dinner Gathering
Chap Goh Meh aka "元宵节" is a festival celebrated on the 15th, which is also the last day of Chinese New Year. We fixed up a dinner date with the Tan's family, two eat-outs in one day, amazing! Location was picked by Kevin, at the Sofra Turkish Restaurant in town, then followed by an ice-cream indulgence at the Gelatissimo I longed for. Belgian Chocolate - the best!!!

Brunch at Metro Cafe + USQ Phoenix Carnial

Metro Cafe Toowoomba: Sunday Lunch
I had an event to attend at the uni today, the USQ Phoenix Carnival, happening from midday to late evening. But I was only there for an hour or so since the weather was pretty gloomy with passing showers. I left the house in the worst outfit ever for a windy, rainy day - a flare dress *facepalm* My hands were too busy keeping my dress down and my hair nice that I didn't have time to shoot much photos =3

After the event, I went to pick Mr. Choo up for brunch. Usually, he's the one behind the wheels but this afternoon, I be his personal driver, drove him around the city instead. We came to Metro Cafe (recommended by a blogger friend, Emily, and our besties, Kevin and Veny), located next to Bikeline, opposite the Toowoomba Railway Station.

Valentine's Surprise For The Two of Us

Happy Snapping in Blue
Blue~ reminds me of Monday, which is just tomorrow if I must remind you =.=" Mondays may not be my most favorite days of the week, but the color blue doubtlessly is my obsession this summer, from pastel to navy blue.

I'm surprised how much my wardrobe has grown and changed throughout the past few years. There are some clothes I used to like (I had really bad taste in clothes back then) left sitting in my wardrobe, basically just collecting dust *guilty* I rarely or don't wear them anymore, but then I feel bad to just give them away.

I even talked myself into believing that I would still wear them sometimes when I'm home, turns out, that's not exactly the case. So I spring-cleaned my wardrobe a couple of days ago, packed away those unwanted ones and bid goodbyes.

Now, our Valentine's Day surprise... Don't you wanna see what have we got for each other? Hehe

Red and Fat "Snake" Year

First Day of Chinese New Year
年初一, first day of Chinese New Year. Huat ah!!! Haha, I wore the reddest piece in my wardrobe, a slim-fit flare dress I picked up during last-minute shopping. Red is good, consider it a bright, happy color that brings the wearer a sunny and bright future *fingers crossed* There are few other superstitions (good-luck traditions) my family practice on the first day of CNY, apart from wearing red, such as no washing hair and no sweeping or dusting in the house.

Prosperity Toss and Hot Pot Reunion Dinner

Lunar / Chinese New Year's Eve
Chinese aka Lunar New Year's Eve fell on the Saturday this year. I went to work in the morning, finished, came home and did the routine things I'd usually do before heading out again. My face was naked (no make-up), messy hair (partially tied up after blow-dry), and I couldn't bother to put on contact lens as my eyes were pretty sore yesterday.

Mr. Choo and I showed up in black, while the loving family of three (oops, should be four now =p) wore the reddest possible outfits to welcome the Water Snake in 2013.

Glamorous Wok: Loving My New Hair Color

Glamorous Wok Sunnybank
So, I did the first wash on my newly colored hair yesterday. The feeling was not pleasant, at all. It felt like shampoo-ing and rubbing Barbie Doll's hair, just plain rough and dry *teary eyes* Beauty comes at a price, I believe everything does. And I'm gonna have to deal with the consequence, both goods and bads until the roots fully grow out.

Hanaichi: Dining with New Hair Color

Hanaichi Japanese Sushi Bar and Dining Wintergarden
Hello, Monday! What's up, everybody?! Do you notice any different about me today? *ahem* Anyone? *blinks eyes* It's my hair, I dyed my hair for the first time in my life!!! No kidding =)) I got them professionally done by this Korean Hair Salon down in Sunnybank yesterday. The first question asked after the hairdresser found out about me being a first timer was, "How old are you?" Hahaha~ Oh yeah, she was shocked, but I can assure you that my family (specially my mum) and friends would be open-mouth shocked when they see me.

Saturday at the Coffee Club

Dinner at the Coffee Club
Valentine's month is here, can you feel the love in the air? I felt very much loved today, blessed with good food and all after work on a Saturday evening. We walked into the restaurant, welcomed by this cute baby-faced waiter who served us the last time we came. His face, his smile resemble the Hollywood actor, Elijah Wood a lot but way younger? Haha xD
