In exactly 2 days, it'll be my 19th Birthday.
But, how should I celebrate?
I have no plans, just a simple dinner with a few friends.
Somehow I just don't feel as excited about my birthday as I was last year.
I think it's mainly because most of my close friends have all left Melbourne and headed home.
Ashley,Yinn,Wymun,Bear,HuaYu,Randy all packed up and gone :(
However, the plus side is, my family will be here the day after my birthday (9th Dec) to celebrate with me
Happy Birthday in advance to myself
This is how I style my hair on certain days. When I'm lazy to style it, I'd just pin the long ends to the back :)
Super short entry for me to kill my 'break-time' from my Reshaping Essay :( I've successfully written half of the required word minimum and I'm pretty confident I'll be writing way over the word minimum, which is really good cuz it's always NEVER good to be UNDER the word minimum.
I've got heaps of stuff to update on (i've been saying that in almost every entry that i post. lol!) but yes, I'll get around to posting some really really old updates that are waay overdue once my exams are over and my holidays officially start!
Final Paper : Japanese 1B 13th November!! and then I'm officially FREE!!! Right now I gotta focus and finish up my essay, which is due on the 9th (Monday)
and final submission due dates are coming even closer!
I know i've been neglecting this blog,
but it seems whenever i have tooo much time,
i don't see the point of updating my blog =.=
it is only when i find that time is running out
and due dates are drawing closer,
then I'd start to procrastinate and start ranting out on my blog
I liked how my camera took these photos
it made me look super fair :D
bubble tea at STAR is absolutely addictive! :)
please don't give up on me!
I will update on more informational stuff soon!
YANWEN: Ehhh! I know what you can do for your blog! ME: What? YANWEN: Start a video blog! Teach ppl how to curl hair! ME: There are already so many videos on utube, who wanna see mine o. I also paiseh to do one la. my curling skills also not that geng! hahahah YANWEN: no la, I like yours wat!
awwwwwww~!!! hahahhaha! YanWen! You are TOOOO NICE!!! :D I Lurve U and Miss u loadz!! hahaha.
I have lost all inspiration or motivation to blog. Completely lost the excitement in taking pictures of EVERY SINGLE thing that I do. Don't see the point because my life ain't that interesting at all! haha.
Those who know me as a cam-whorer, I swear to you! I have not takan more than 10pictures of myself this entire 2months! o.O!! UNBELIVABLE!! NO? hahaha. Haven't been going anywhere special or exciting that it would require an actual entry for. unless you consider my assignments worth mentioning? that will make like a whole 10entries. Assignments are making me crazy! So much work! So little time! I've got ONE more hurdle to pass before i finally make it to the end: my 2weeks of Mid-semester break (which is actually just a study week) Haven't been clubbing or partying either. Lost the excitement of that too. I don't know why. I just turned of legal age not too long ago, I should be enjoying and partying like crazy! But I think something is really really reallywrong with me, I don't see the point in it anymore, nor do i see the fun of it. Maybe i just have not been in the mood for it. I just feel tired and sleepy every single day! :(
Well, here goes my failed attempt in actually updating my blog with something interesting. I have totally nothing to post about, and this post is totally pointless! That's it!
HAHAHAHA! I've got a 2,000 word report on "Sustainability" due this Thursday,
but, here I am anyway, updating my blog because I don't particularly feel like doing the report
Haven't even started! But somehow i always feel like i've got alot of time =.= Delusional~
So as the title goes,
Here's the continuation from PART 1 which u can view by clicking here!
I seriously LOVE to shop at Forever 21!
And yes! JB doesn't have a Forever 21 outlet! DO NOT DISCRIMINATE!! :D Singapore has though, it's just across the causeway and it's super convenient,
but that's not important.
Tried on this lovely flowery dress!
I actually really loved it and really wanted to get it!
But Melissa, thanks to her! She was feeling shitty that day and hence, didn't give me solid advice!
she said it wasn't nice! :(
so i ended up not getting it.
Did however cam-whored for abit in the changing room with our shiny + glittery hairbands :)
We got the Silver-colored one. (the one on my head) We spent like I think almost 2hours there just browsing through the racks
But, you know what? To be seriously honest, it was quite disappointing!
The clothes were really just ok-ok looking with a few exceptional ones, like the dresses.
but other than that, it was just okay.
So didn't really spend much there.
Headed over to The Loaf for tea-time, and also to rest our tired aching legs.
Then headed back to the hotel to catch some shut-eye.
Mom woke me up half an hour later for some shopping at KLCC
Managed to meet up with YanWen!!
haven't seen her in such a long time!! missed her so much!
She has SERIOUSLY LOST ALOT OF WEIGHT!! o.O I envy her!!! Pretty pretty YanWen and Me =)
UBER-LY sweeet couple~ :D Daniel and YanWen
Look at my FAT FACE compared to hers!!! shittttt :(
I photoshopped my arms here! Can't stand it looking sooo fat beside hers!
Of ALLL the times that I've been up to KL,
I have NEVER taken a picture of the cities most iconic building,
The PETRONAS TWIN TOWER!!
My camera's quality is super good la can?! hahahhaha :P
The next morning, went back down for the buffet breakfast!
I'm soooo certain that that extra few kilos i gained over the holidays were mainly due to the buffet breakfasts! I'm sure of it!!
And off we went, back to JB on Monday!
Last picture before leaving the super nice hotel! Just realised that my hair was actually quite long ~.~
why do i always cut my hair, when i want it to grow long??!
Beautiful-looking and extremely delicious :P Sushi made by both me and Melissa, with a little help from Jasper Taught to us by our dearest dearest mother :D
So, these are the ingredients that you will need:
as many sausages as you want (according to how many sushi pieces you'd like to make)
japanese sushi rice
Add a few teaspoons full of sesame oil and a dash of salt into the rice. To give the rice it's fragrant and delicious taste. I personally tend to put in more salt to give the rice abit more of flavour, but it's totally up to you.
Crack and beat the eggs together. Beat till the egg yolks are evenly mixed or till the mixture turns generally yellow.
Fry the eggs and fry the sausages.Boil carrots.
Next, while waiting for the carrots to cool down from boiling, cut the cucumber into rather thin strips. Not too thick or too thin because you'd need to place the ingredients inside the sushi for rolling.
Do the same to the carrots, eggs and sausages. All cut up into strips.
You may want to use a paper towel to soak up the oil from the sausages first before cutting them into strips. Less fattening that way. haha :)
Place seaweed onto the bamboo rollers (I can't remember the exact word for it)
Place rice. Spread it out evenly across the seaweed. DO NOT put too much rice! Otherwise the sushi would be really really fat!
Place the ingredients onto one side of the seaweed. You can put as many ingredients as you'd like, but for me, I always place 4 sausage: 3 eggs: 2 cucumber: 2 carrot ratio.
Roll em' up! :D (TIP: Dip your fingers in sesame oil, it sorta helps prevent the rice from sticking to your fingers :D)
Once you've come to the end of your sushi roll, rub sesame oil all over the sushi, to help the seaweed to stick together. Especially at the ends, squish them together to form a sort of pointed shape.
And finally, CUT and SERVE :)
Super simple! yet super delicious!!! do try it! and if any of you do ACTUALLY try it, let me know how it turns out :D
the guy at the back totally ruined my picture! :(
but it's alright, my brother says it's good, cuz it looks like it was an impromptu shot
=.=, impromptu shot still can pose.
HANDMADE SUSHI BY ME :D
So sorry for the lack of updates!
I'm unable to update because I'm strictly NOT allowed to upload anymore photos
because my internet quota is almost used up!
89% of 25gb.
and i still have a few more weeks to go before they re-update my quota
so till then, i can't upload any pictures
unless i do them in the school library.
but wouldn't it be weird?
people go to the library to study,
i go there to update my blog!
that would be hilarious!
I shall be posting up HOW I MADE THIS SUSHI up soon
I KNOW! i haven't updated on ALOT of stuff and events!
but i promise, i'll get to that soon.
PLEASE WATCH DISTRICT 9!!!
it's a FUCKING AWESOME show!!!
the f-word is used to emphasise how really awesome the show was.
not that i was scolding bad words!
I have soo many self-shots of myself, taken after Ashley's bday party,
hence, i shall slowly slowly use all of the pictures up, at the start of every new entry :D
This entry is a so overdue, but still, I want to blog about it :)
So, we went up to KL (Kuala Lumpur) for a 3-day trip.
Basically for the weekend, to get some shopping done,
and to get some important medical books for Melissa
First up before the trip, we went to Restaurant Buddys
to eat the most deliciousHainanese Chicken Rice!!
The absolutely mouth-wateringChicken Rice that is just one of a kind!
I soooo missed this when I was in Melbourne, and now that I'm back in Melbourne, I miss it!!
It's sooo delicious! People from JB who have NOT tried this,
you are seriously missing out on the goodness of life :P
So after lunch, headed into the car and off we went!
I immediately got ready into my sleeping-mode to bypass the 4hour drive to KL. To pass the time even further before i finally fall asleep,
I just had to camwhore :P
brought along with me my favourite 'small pillow', my trusty sleeping companion :D
wahsehh, damn lan c! sleeping also need to wear sunnies :P
So, after the 4hour drive,
finally arrived at the hotel, Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur!
I haven't stayed in that hotel for many many years now,
most of the time, we'd stay at JW Marriot Hotel because my dad's able to get some special rate.
But it was fully booked and so, Mandarin Oriental, although expensive, we stayed there.
Luckily! they were having some sort of promotion, and so, my dad got the special rate for the rooms! haha :D
LOVEEE the hotel's toilets!
sooo classy and elegant-ish.
So are the beds!
It just looks comfy and big and cosy!
but honestly, it's quite hard and i personally prefer my own bed. haha :D
Morning came and BUFFET BREAKFAST TIME!!! :D
The spread at the hotel was amazing!
absolutely LOADZ of food!
definitely brings a smile to my face, regardless of the fact that i had to get up early for it.
definitely worth every amount of deprived sleep i had :D
After breakfast, I headed back up to the hotel room,
had to wait awhile for certain people to do their certain 'business' :P
so I curled my hair, and changed my clothes! lol!
I had to change my outfit because the bulge of my stomach could be seen through the high-waisted skirt that i was wearing :( super fat!
so i changed to a big,oversized tee with a pair of leggings. hides all the fats!
and OFF to Pavilion to shop! shop! shop! Forever 21! :D
Cam whored in the car on the way to Pavilion :P yes, again!Damn vain lah!!! XD
Arrived at Pavilion and we went straight to Forever 21 :)
But that, will have to wait for another entry.
I gotta go do my Designing Journal now :D Stay tuned for more updates!
