Melbourne 2009: Day 3.

I really need to come up with better titles. -_-

But I have no choice! 'Cause descriptive titles for my trips make it easier for me to search for the entries. Data management wtf.

I slept past 1pm today!!! It was what I really needed 'cause for some reason, I was just exceptionally exhausted this whole week despite having on average 7 hours of sleep each night. Maybe it's 'cause I was going to get my period soon? I dunno, it's what Jing told me, I personally never really noticed this.

Scrambled out of bed after I was awaken by my alarm, and ran to gym. I desperately need to catch up on my exercise... Melbourne has done no good to my tummy (and appetite). T__T Feel really productive now, which is why I am blogging. After this I have to get to work. :(

Anyway, like what my title suggests wtf! We went to Bridge Road on day 3:

Joshua, Jing and Dorothy from Wizard of Oz (i.e. me) wtf.

I absolutely love Joshua's ring! Though it isn't very movement-friendly wtf (you can't bend your finger haha).

He got it on Ebay! I really need to shop more on Ebay... I don't do so 'cause GASP I don't have a Paypal account. *shy*

Love his eel skin boots as well!! Though I got a bit queasy thinking of the eel before it was made into shoes wtf.

I have an immense phobia of snakes-- and eels bear too big a resemblance to those wrenched creatures! T_T

Hui Wen and Hui Jing sitting on a bench... G-O-S-S-I-P-I-N-G wtf.

Proudly showing off my much loved pale pink beret with rosettes. *heart*

Style shot wtf. I quite like the woman's jagged-hem coat! Very Flintstone, haha.

Bridge Road!

I saw this in a shop! I say, ditto! :D
(Y'know how usually these charts for testing eyesight only have 'E's in various sizes...)

Then Teeny came down to join us! Poor girl had classes earlier in the day.

Dunno what did I say to elicit such a response from her. -_-

Gangster sial!
And hahaha, Joshua's pose damn cute in the 2nd picture.

You don't expect me to look glam while scratching an itchy scalp, do you wtf.

Why I consumed 20,000 calories a day in Melbourne:

My very sophisticated sounding risotto which I have forgotten the name, heh. It has smoked salmon, cheese, and orange peel in it! A rather interesting mix, I say.

Jing's chicken, mushroom and bacon risotto.

Potato wedges with melted cheese and salsa. Much love!

Joshua's super huge fish and chips.

No picture of Teeny's food 'cause she was a vegetarian for the day, and hence her food is not worthy of any photos wtf.

I quite recommend this cafe! It's called Sass, and it's on the upper part of Bridge Road. We were salivating over the Sass & Bide collection in one of the shops in the earlier part of the day, and thus joked to ourselves that since we can't afford Sass & bide, Sass will suffice for the meantime. T___T

Dressed for winter... right up to the dark colors!

As you can see, I am an outcast from my choice of colors wtf.

Joyous Teeny is a rare sight. :P
I pride myself on taking good candid pictures! *pats myself on the back*

On the tram. Teeny was wearing a long beanie, so I told her that it's very convenient as she can just yank it down to cover her face and go rob a bank wtf.

And I finally got to visit my true love, Max Brenners!

Peanut butter and chocolate ice frappe-- bestest drink in the world! Have been craving for it for almost 2 years already. T_T

'Drink me'. We heard you! :P

Best friends. :)

Remember I mentioned here that my strand of pearls broke whilst I was walking?
All was left is a loose strand of thread. :'(

One of my favorite jackets-- love the bow detailing at the pockets. :)

Teeny's new booties-- so new that she walked out of the store wearing them! :P
I so adore these shoes-- especially the gold platform, but unfortunately I won't really get much use of them in M'sia/S'pore.

Sometimes I hate staying in a tropical country! :(

God I am attractive.

May I show you the stairway to heaven!!!
Max Brenner's belgium waffles are the BEST, I am telling you. BEST BEST BEST. Every bite you take, you will soar to heaven... *dreamy*

Mr. Bald Man (aka Max Brenner himself wtf), thank you being such a genius! *kiss*

Battle of acting like animals????

No chapped lips for me! And Teeny in the midst of seducing Max Brenner wtf.

Korean food for dinner (although we were already so stuffed with chocolate goodies) at Big Mama. I can't remember the exact street name, but it's somewhere near Lygon Street.

We each got to pick one dish!

Jing picked some fried chicken, which was really really good! Tender, crispy, with the right touch of tanginess from the sauce. Thumbs up for this!

Teeny the Vegetarian picked fried tofu (she removed the dried cuttlefish shreds).

I always have the same thing at Korean restaurants: Kimchi Chigae (kimchi soup). *love*

The hotplate grilled beef ribs that came highly recommended by Joshua!

Everything we ordered was very yummy! One of the better Korean food I have had... The only gripe I had with the restaurant is that the restaurant's name 'Big Mama' translated to "Fat Mama" in Chinese (based on the Chinese characters)-- I got a little nervous, 'cause what if Fat Mama wants to make everyone fat wtf.

Random aspects of the outfit of the day:

Ribbed cotton tights kept me warm. :)

Scarf to match the outfit. The pink blob is actually a flower, haha.

Pearl layers in its full glory before one of the strands broke; and lovely mesh part of the vintage top before I spilled mocha on it. *dark*

I don't have a proper outfit picture, do this will have to do:


Cream velvet top with heart-shaped mesh neckline with floral beaded applique: Camberwell market (bought it 2 years when I was still studying, for 3 bucks :P)
Electric blue full miniskirt: Topshop
White jacket with bow detailing on pockets: Singapore
Baby pink felt beret with rosettes: Forever 21
Layered pearl strands and chains: Diva
White ribbed tights: Forever New
Red parent maryjanes: Topshop
Bag: Miu Miu

I am so hot when I pout.

anonymous: I haven't tried that before! But quite a few of my friends told me that it tastes different from the aussie ones.. I guess it's the aussie's milk! T_T

Hmm, I saw your beret and thought that it looked vaguely familiar. Then I remembered I brought it back for you, HAHAHA!

The Faux Fashionista said...
