Sydney Spring Break 09

I'm back from Sydney!

Thanks for those who were concern regarding the Sandstorm that hit Sydney a day before me and my friends went. Thank you! :) *much love* I think most of you might have seen the photos I've posted in Facebook, but if you haven't, please check 'em out :)

My friends and I were in Sydney for 5 days/ 4 nights, and we stayed at Westend Backpackers Lodge at Pitt Street, which was such a strategic location because I felt it was like an intersection of every roads. Chinatown, the Central Train Station, and even Hilton Hotel was a few blocks away.That strategic! There were also tons of good restaurants & bars nearby.

There were six of us in the trip. Four of us reached Sydney at about 12ish, and after lunch we manage to grab the bunks first :) I slept right above Cindy which turned out to be such a menace. She kept poking my arse! :( The remaining two reached much later in the evening.

Met up with Yuen's friend Christina who brought us to a Korean BBQ that was so awesome, I was burping Kimchi throughout the night. Yum. The portion was huge, the price was affordable and the place closes at 3AM! Which is super awesome noting the fact that Sadelaide closes everything by 12. And that's bar alright.

I'm not too sure where this was but I think it was on the way to Darling Harbour. Pretty awesome eh? :)

After dinner we went to Darling Harbour bridge for some walking. It was windy that night, and so purrty :)

Second day was spent at Paddy's Market. Jeez! I forgot to upload them, but please feel free to check those photos out of us having icecreams after shopping. There wasn't much for me there, BUT I bought a small disco ball which costed about 2dollars. Yeee, now my room has a small disco ball :)

Fast forward to the third day, the most photos I took throughout this trip is when we visited the Beach! We went to the gorgeus Bondi Beach and had like the yummiest Fish & Chips ever! I actually really loved it, especially when the part where it's topped and seasoned with Chicken Salt (kinda beat the purpose but brings more flavour). Didn't get to finish it due to the generous amount of chips, and I mean tons of it! yum.

Here are the photos of the beach, I swear it's a million times better in real mode.

The seagulls here are so spoilt, they were literally waiting, gathering around the huts for tourists/ visitors to feed them. The problem is, there were tons of them. Even if we were nice enough to feed them, we will surely be ambushed by another million of Seagulls fighting for a piece. So we decided to not spoil them. Find your own food lazy seagulls!

I'm sorry my pictures are sporadic. I think this was on the second day. Nevertheless, we had cupcakes as well since Audrey was looking for this place. There was a point where the bystanders were wondering why there were so many of us staring at the cupcakes like there's some magical cupcake show. Well, they are too pretty.

Darling Harbour, gorgeous!

We went to this place called 'Mamak' which was nearby the place where we were staying and it was terrible. I don't know whether it's the fact that we came there about 15 minutes to close, but it just doesn't make any sense when all the raw ingredients were completely drained out. Like Milo, don't they buy them in tins or something? Or coffee? Do they really have like a day quota? I think it was just them being lazy since it was closing.

Anyway the price was also expensive. Oh well, this is pretty common here.

Told ya, my pics are all over the place. Here are more pictures of Bondi Beach. Oh, I forgot to tell you. There was this shop nearby that was selling bikins for 10bucks! Everything! The designs are pretty gorgeous as well, and we couldn't resist :P

Audrey and I were also doing an experiment of whether all the surfers are as hot as they're always perceived. Okaylah, it was sort of true. Majority of them had this toned body, and this sun-kissed beach tan that we see in movies. I'm not talking about just guys, the girls as well of course. Not only that, strangely, most of them are tall as well.

Until, one guy came running out from the sea which just RED speedo.

Audrey and I looked at each other and burst out a laugh.

We spent the last day visiting Sydney Opera House. The trademark and the must-see landmark of Sydney. I was trying hard to snap the opera house to show how big it looks like, but the architecture of the building makes it really hard to do so. I decided to just snap at certain angles, which I was at. Heh, lazy.

Me: I want to take photos of the opera house, showing how it looks like, you know.
Cindy: Haih, nevermindlah. Like that, just get a postcard.
Me: -____-"

the trip was pure crazy and fun. It's so funny having the rest of the girls in the room. We had this cute system, of Cindy waking up earliest and then will wake me up, and then I'll wake Carmen up and goes on. Other than that, everyday was shopping shopping shopping and eating eating eating.

So, should you visit Sydney? YES! You'll love it :)

Bollocks, I didn't upload the photo of the opera house from far. Please check them out in my Facebook album. Thank youu! :)

Hugs & Kisses,
Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie.

Selamat Hari Raya from Adelaide

Hello you!

Spring Break is finally here, and when it's here, there's nothing much to do. Everything here closes by evening, no such thing as Mamak or Kopitiam that actually is cheap, and opens till 'late. Pfft. Luckily enough, the girls and I are going Sydney next Thursday, and OMG that screams shopping!!

No seriously, I am planning to shop. Not the kind that would excess the card but the kind that would make a girl - happy enough *grins*. Plus, I haven't been to Sydney before and I'm purrrttyy excited to enjoy one of the happiest city in the world.

The other day when we went to picnic, I brought my bubbles and my oh my did I fell in love with bubbles. It was so addictive. The only problem was... I look terrible in photos whenever I blow them. This shot below is probably the nicest, but as you can still seeeee, I look so stressed. God knows what was I thinking when I'm playing bubbles. Argh.

Yesterday we had Karaoke for Audrey's birthday, and I think everyone officially knows I like Miley Cyrus. -____- I felt so shy, but oh well, now I get to hum The Climb or Best of Both Worlds more openly, woopeee!

Ah, I forgot to mention to you. Right now, at this very moment I'm suffering from a muscle pull/ strain on my right arm, thanks to Wii! Christ, to think that you won't be injured by staying indoor is just wrong. The girls and I have been hanging out at Rubee & Mas' place for Wii and eventhough fun, the aftereffects of Wii is insane. It's like playing the real sports. Damn you deceiving technology! So I thought you could make our life easier!

Anyway, few nights back we went Wii again, and now, I can't even raise my right arm up. Even scratching is a struggle. It's so painful :( Thankfully, I have Salonpas from back Malaysia, and the warm tingling feeling is slowly biting off the numbness. It's like playing sports, but worst. You're not building any muscle but is suffering just as much. Hmmph.

Going for a sorta open-house tomorrow :) To the Muslimins and Muslimats, Happy Raya!!! I soo miss Malay food!!! When you eat them, think of me! :)

Hugs & Kisses,
Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie.

You're my Carl & I'm your Ellie.

Spring is here!

After almost a month or so waiting,

Spring is finally here! Snowy, Rubee and Mas invited us along for a picnic in Botanical Garden near the city and it was bliss! The weather was gorgeous, sun, wind, and ducks combined is recipe for such beautiful day.

Here are the pictures taken from Rubee's and Yuen's camera. Well, they both have DSLRs or SLRs or something like that, I'm not too sure, but their pictures are definitely way nicer :)

There were quite a number of people having picnics as well, and it was so sweet to see family birthdays and weddings being held on that beautiful sunny day. Oh not to mention, the day before that when we were out in the city, when I saw a couple of Chinese dudes buying flipflops - I just couldn't wait to wear mine as well! Nyehehe :)

Here's the three of us playing with bubbles :)

The rest playing Ice, Water, Fire while I was playing bubbles! It was funny to see bunch of A-dults running around!

After the picnic, half of the group went for Bazaar Ramadhan at University of Adelaide. The uni is huge and the bazaar is secluded!

Next picnic will be with Audrey and the usual girls in Glenelg Beach! Weee, Spring! Take out your flip flops, shorts and t-shirts - the sun is out!

Hugs & Kisses,
Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie.

Heart you

I miss those times when you'd give me all your attention, and I give you mine even when we're at worst places. You'd force me to sit with you, and I force you to sit with me.

Soon we will reach our second year, numbers are nothing, effort is everything. I've been thinking about it all night, I'm putting more heart. I'd adjust my nights and days just to invest more time with you.

I'll do whatever it takes, even if it means not having you as much as I used to, so long as I have you.

I love you!

Hugs & Kisses,
Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie.

Royal Adelaide Show 2009

OMG I was halfway blogging and then I accidentally pressed UniSA Helpdesk.

Argh! Anyway, let me try to regain my excitement of blogging about the carnival again. Pfft. I've been pretty occupied these days with all the pub-crawling, carnival, and loads of gathetrings in between, thankfully the assignments are pretty okay so far, SO FAR. I'm still dreading the lengthy essays that will kill me soon.

Anyhoo, a group of us went to the Royal Adelaide Show last Sunday and it was heaps fun. I think we all went completely nuts that day, we all became so greedy and sugar-high or something. Unlike my usual posts, I will insert the texts in between the pictures. More pictures on Facebook :)

Powder pucker. I didn't buy it though, I just thought it was a cool concept. Sucking powders!

Some happy kid

As soon as we reached the carnival we went straight to this exhibition/ convention centre with loads of flowers and other stuffs. They were even some models parading flowers on their body. Yeah, weird much. As expected most of the watchers were mothers with their kids. Heee. If mum comes, I think she would be in love as well.

The spending began in the Showbags Bazaar where there were shitloads - and I mean by SHITLOADS of stuffs sold. From candies, to girly stuffs to magic toys for boys it was insane! I think everyone went completely beserk looking at all those candies. Well, I know I did. It took me ages to figure which showbags to buy and I decided on Girlfriend! showbag. I didn't took a picture of what's inside the bag, but let me tell you here. I hope I can remeber, there were 3 Girlfriend! magazines, fingerless gloves that I gave to Yuen eventually, nail polishes (!!!), woman's sanitary pads, this gorgeous black -white stripes sling bag, some jelly powder where you can actually mix the powder with any juices or sodas you want to create a jelly out of it, herm let me think... erm Gummi Bears, Neutrogena facial wash, erm more stuffs that I don't remember. I only paid 15dollars for a bag apparently worth 100dollars.

Awesome! Oh and I also bought bags of M&M's and Cadburry. BUT OF COURSE!

After the whole hypnotisis of candies, we went out for some real lunch. Yeah, awesome carnival food stuffs. It was my first time trying Dagwood Dogs, it's like a sausage roll. With more Candy Floss. Yummmm.

Yuenny :) & Candy Floss & MY BLACK AND WHITE BAG! Hey!

More Candy Flosss.. yum.

After lunch we went to see some animals, I thought it was rather weird as well for a family carnival to have things like dogs competition or pigs racing (!!!!!) but apparently it's widely acceptable or is already embodied in their culture for such activities. It was pretty awesome as well. I think I saw the prettiest dogs ever on that carnival, huge dogs and excruciatingly adorable! My boyfriend would love them!

Some cute Siberian Husky. Baby, look at this! It was huge, I bet if it jumps, it would be taller than me! That huge!

After the animals' section comes THE games... hmm. Where do I even begin? It was probably the craziest part of the day that started out innocently of just wanting to win some prizes to this wicked obsession of winning huge prizes! PEER PRESSURE I tell you!

Below is a picture of one of the ride in the carnival. Pretty awesome eh? But it was pretty expensive so we decided not to play the rides and save some cash for THE GAMES instead. Buahahahaha.

Below is one of the games that was available that day. I'm not too sure whether any of us played this that day but as you can seee.... those giant toys. Yeah, that was among the biggest attraction to us, and we all turned to toys zombie or something. I can't wait to go to Gold Coast and ride on all the crazy rides with my sister this Summer. Woot woot!

Some weird Halloween rides, I don't even understand why some people wants to ride it.

Ferris Wheel! I think it's the prettiest ride, plus romantic. Although you'd have to be stucked up there on air for a good half-an-hour. Aww, it's all sweet! :) Carmen played the same game Cindy played and they both got the huge-ass prizes. Cindy the psychic got a huge white teddy bear and Carmen, well you can see for yourself. Freaking huge Kermit!

As I've mentioned, me and my friends have turned nuts when we were palying the games, and the picture above is as proof. This is a bad example though, but nevertheless when all of us dumped our toys and whatever not it was literally, a mountain of toys. Not too mention enviable to the kids *evil laugh*.

I wasn't as bad.

Okay I lied, I played the basketball game from winning a small unicorn to uh, well freaking huge purple pony! Yuen is particularly inlove with ponies, so I was contemplating of getting it but others was just ... blegh. I hated the Panda, frankly and some were just weird ducks. When I got the winning pony I was so excited, I literally jumped around like a kid.

What carnival did to me... Rubee jealous. Pfft. Always poke my pony *rubs pony*.

Be surprised, be very surprised. They have live wrestling.

To end the night they had this beautiful fireworks that made me miss my boyfriend terribly. I thought it was a romantic moment, how I wished he could've been there to enjoy it with me. Nevertheless, I had awesome companny. Beautiful fireworks! I loved how they complement the fireworks with some edgy musical background. Nyehehehe.

Right before we left, we entered this hall where there was tons of cows. Huge, massive cows as heavy as 1050kgs! Most of the cows were as tall as us, and like a at least 10 times bigger than us. Huge cows. Once again, Daren would love these kind of white trash shows. Cows, pigs - these animal races. You should have teleported yourself here baby boy.

Look at that!

I told you I had tons of candies. Gosh, sugar high!

Hugs & Kisses,
Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie.

White Shirt Pub Crawl

Me: I'm scared people will draw on my boobs.
Cindy: Hmmm.
Me: Unless I ask them to draw on my sleeves?
Cindy: I KNOW. Let us all draw on both sides of our boobs first!!!!! Then they can see it's full!!!
Me: *Laughs like mad* That's actually not a bad idea!

It turned out we really drew on each other's boobs first :)

Last Friday night was my second pub crawl here in Adelaide. Left our place at about 8ish, and reached city at about 9pm. Soon as we reached the city, as usual we hung around Hungry Jacks to get some awesome chicken wrap for dinner and ice-creams before we join the crowd in this pub called Austral...

...only to find out that the crowd was MASSIVE! Stood outside for a good 10minutes not knowing what was going on inside the pub. Turns out the pub was too full to acommodate the last crowd. Hmmmm.

When I saw from the event page that people writes down the strangest and funniest of comments, I didn't really took it seriously - thought people were just going to write their initials turns out they really do! One of my favourite was a guy with a hobo look, long hair with the statement "I need a haircut" behind his shirt. Some even had huge nicknames infront of their shirt like "Drunk Dylan" and some just has the weirdest comments like "Help, I'm a Virgin". Hahahaha pity that old-looking dude, some naughty boys must have wrote it.

Anyhoo, when we finally got in, the first few people who signed on our shirts were Chris and Lee who ended up hung around with us (rather Audrey and Carmen) throughout the night! :) Here are few pics from that night courtesy of Audrey.

Still drawing on toilet breaks!

Lee & Chris

I just like to spoil pictures don't I

"Enter Here" hahahaha

I got some loveshape on my boob!

Yuennyyeee and Audrey with her starry boob!

Next post - Royal Adelaide Show '09!
