A Snicker muffin at 12am.

Something has given me a high for the past 2 days. :)

Remember how depressed and bummed out I was over my results last semester?
Well, I emailed my IT lecturer for one of the IT units I took last semester-- for a breakdown of my marks, because I genuinely thought I did better than the marks I received. I swear to god, I emailed him because I sincerely just wanted to know where I went wrong, and not as some threat for a remark or anything like that.

He only replied me email one week later. By then, I have forgotten that I have sent the email in the first place.
However, his reply read something like that, "I have sent in a recommendation to the faculty for an increase of marks for your final exam. Please check with the faculty in a week's time."

So two days ago, I was messing with my uni's site, checking out the page which displays my academic record out of curiosity over some new CGPA policy the university has implemented, and what I saw made my heart dropped to my toes.

In a good, happy flop, of course.

My marks was increased to 88!
From a bloody 73.


:) :) :)


Of course, it isn't completely certified, I don't want to get my hopes high till I actually visit the Faculty and get some sort of solid confirmation, but ohhhh! I hope it's true! :)




Some backlogged happy pictures. :)

Met up with Audrey, who's in Melbourne for 3 weeks.


I think it's amazing that being only the second time we have met, we could click so well! Is it our shared vanity. Or is it the gossip. Or is it my sharp wit, hahaha.
But she's going to leave on Tuesday! Why does time passes so fast. T__T

Aud and her true self.

Our bags have met each other's soulmates!
'Cause giant bags are hard to come by. ;)

I fell in love with a slightly similar black top as the one I am wearing here in the city today... Should I get it???



And, it was raining.
And we didn't have hoodies.
So we wore scarves on our heads.


And you get this.

Y'allah.



Hahaha!



****************************************************

And Smalls and I went exploring on Sunday! <3 size="1">Never mind the fact that we were actually heading to St. Kilda, but we got nervous as the tram trailed further and further away from the city, so we hopped down the tram as soon as we saw a reasonable place to eat at. -_-

But La Colline's was actually a really sweet hidden cafe! :)

Exotic textile walls.
And the main focal point of this picture is the couple.
There's something inherently sweet about couples sitting opposite one another, gazing into each other's eyes, isn't it? :)


And you should also know that when I am in Melbourne, I am VERY bitter when I see couples around me.

Thatis the cute French-speaking waiter, heeheehee!

The reformed church-going Smalls.

My foccacia! I loved the fact that they marinated the chicken instead of the usual tasteless chicken breast.
And side dishes (fresh garden salad and tossed pasta) make me happy. :)

Smalls with her omelette.


And don't tell anyone, but scrambled eggs and bacon with toast is one of my favorite breakfasts. ;)







And we have found our wedding venue already!!! :)

The black thing on my head is supposedly my veil but it is actually my cardigan.

The perfect aisle.



And I am so dying for us to go for a picnic in one of the parks.
The rolling lawns... The fresh grass... The blue skies...
