Melbourne 2009: Day 7

Backlogged pictures from Melbourne. Don't say I didn't warn you, there's plenty of them. But no one ever complains about pictures overload so let's get down to business! :P

Sometimes it amazes me that I actually do still remember (sorta) the things that we did (and when we did them) during the trip! Of course, looking through the pictures we took helped jogged my memory. ;) And this is why I insist on blogging about it! It's my little travel log to help me remember the happy times. :)

And admit it, you all like my travelling pictures right! /beg



Waiting for the train super duper early on a Sunday morning.

Which could only mean one thing-- Camberwell market!




Breakfast at Brunetti's. Here is Jing getting dazed by the array of choices. ;)



Those present at breakfast:


1. Me.

With tousled hair 'cause we ran in the rain.

Yes, it fucking rained halfway whilst we were browsing in Camberwell. POTONG STIM! I was super emo k, 'cause Camberwell was supposed to be one of the highlights of Melbourne. T_T



2. Jing.

Who wore too little for the cold rainy morning, and ended up in one of the jackets that I thrifted for 5AUD. (not the leather jacket she is wearing here la, she refused to be photographed wearing the thrifted jacket fml)



3. My bag of thrifted buys wtf.



4. Joshua. Who is represented by his chocolate pavlova thingy. :P





This... is not a breakfast for the 3 of us. It is solely what Jing consumed. -________-




I only had 2 items compared to Jing!! One nutella cookie and a tiny cube of Opera.




Me being a miser and calculating monies with Joshua til the last cent, hahaha.




Our sugar (and calorie)-laden breakfast. :P





You can see my thrifted jacket peeking out under Jing's leather jacket, hahaha. And YES I know, it's damn unglam to carry around our plastic bags (filled with Camberwell loot!) around in the city. T_T




A dash of color in the dreary cold morning.




Love. :)




Joshua pretending to be a cute baby HAHA.





I love my Cleopatra-inspired necklace. ;)




Saw the cutest kid ever ever everrrrr!! With matching duckie rain boots and rain coat. My maternal instincts were raging when I saw him. Love at first sight. *heart*






Happy street shots.




We saw this and wanted to get for Teeny WTF. She was in such a bad mood for the most of out trip. T_T Why ar, Jing and I so cute. T__T





Met up with Jac. As you can see, I bring out the best in her, hahaha.










The giant wallet.


There is a meaning behind this....




Because right after that we went to Crown Casino WTF.
Jing in (gambling) action.



Jing with an utterly crazed gambler look in her eyes, hahaha.




Obviously this serene shot was taken before Jing stepped into the casino. :P


After that we camwhored right next to the Yarra river.


It was actually freezing cold, not that it stopped us. ;)




I look pint-sized here.




Spot the heart!




Bright lights not as bright as our smiles. :)




Dancing.



Tourists.




Because I love you more than anything.



And we ended our day with the perfect note:



Hot tom yam soup to warm our stomachs, to match with our warmed hearts. :)



My colorful outfit:




Blue and white striped one-shouldered long sleeved dress (worn as top): Topshop
Handpainted floral satin bubble skirt: Thrifted (Singapore)
Nude and navy knitted sweater (layered inside): Miss Selfridge
White ribbed stockings: Teeny's
Electric blue trench coat: Thrifted (Singapore)
Cleopatra-inspired beaded necklace: Thrifted (KL)
Tan maryjanes: River Island
Bag: Miu Miu

Actually,
there is a reason why I am posting these Melbourne pictures.

'Cause I have something to announce.


I.
Am...


GOING TO MELBOURNE!!

AND SYDNEY!!

:D :D :D :D :D :D


It'll be in end-June, and so far everyone has given me the green light! Dad's ok with me going (I'll need to borrow his credit card to book the flight), I managed to get 2 weeks of leave approved although I will actually be plotted on a job, Jing and Teeny's schedules coincide with the same period, so everything's looking really good! :)

I have not bought my plane tickets yet, but I would say it's about 90% confirmed? AAHHH fingers crossed. :))))

Lucky. I need a getaway too.

jean` said...

amanda: u can apply directly to the SG firms, because they DO take overseas grads (just that they give first preference to local grads for the initial intakes). Be prepared to work your ass off! :p It's good exposure, but too much of a good thing can be bad too!

revel in me said...

jean: Okies!


siewkwan: Actually that is not a lot for us, HAHA! I will!! Can't wait to play with my new camera! <3

jing: I wanna book tix now now now! :D


sue lin: Obviously I have more pictures than that, but it would be silly to post up all hundreds of them, wouldn't it? You in melb now?


xiang yun: AGREED! = bliss <3


amanda: Actually sg firms do accept m'sians! Just that during the economic recession, they cut down on taking in international students, and took in more locals. Hmm, do you wanna drop me an email? :) If you are confused about where to go after you graduate, maybe I could share with you why I chose this route, and whether or not it's a route you want to take. :)


joshua: You don't! As usual, your outfit was kick-ass!


siaolee: OWHHH!! WIll you be back in melb in june then? Hehe


yiqin: I need getawaySSS! :P
