Post-Christmas Sales


There's a mad-cap shopping buzz all over Australia. (As well as the rest of the world)
Post-Christmas Shopping!! WOOO!!

I went shopping on Christmas eve and on the 27th, 28th and 29th! (I would go on Boxing Day as well but unfortunately I live in Adelaide and most shops were closed. MEH. )

And I went shopping today too! :D
I must sound like a crazed shopaholic.. but who am I to deny this?

However, I'm a rather cautious spender despite getting all glaze-eyed whenever I see a bargain. It's because I am unemployed at the moment. Boo.

But anyway, I don't really like the style of clothes here and I find the shoes rather boring so it's not often something catches my eye. Sigh.

So I've bought things that I've been wanting to get and managed to snag a couple of items on sale.

The best bargain I grabbed was a FCUK cap for only $10!

A cute vest for $15 (or was it $10?)
An adorable jewelry box for $4.95

Two pairs of black leggings for $8.99

A gorgeous eyeshadow palette for $4.95I love white eyeshadows; they are so awesome to brighten and open up your eyes.

It seems like quite a fair number of items but for 5 whole days of shopping, it's pretty pathetic.
I'm quite disappointed that I didn't manage to score some hot new heels.

But I'm glad I didn't splurge too much this holiday season *prances*
Though, the same cannot be said for the amount of food I've been indulging on *pats happy tummy*

Merry Christmas

Weather forecast: 32 degrees with possible late showers


Still, didn't stop me from having a nice Christmas picnic down at the park!! :)

A simple picnic of sushi (!!), cherries, dips and cheese! :D

I'm currently addicted to honey lime drinks! :)

Why sushi? Well, they're so easy to make and they look so good!

Octopus-dogs (Vegetarian) having a brawl.

At first we were feeding the ducks but this swan suddenly appeared

And then its babies came!! Baby swans!!

Me trying to feed them by hand.
Screamed and threw it at at them instead.

As cute as they are, they sure can eat.
They finished all our crackers (T_T)

Anyway, hope you all had a great Christmas! ^^
Have a great new year too!

Boredom strikes

So boredom prevails.

I saw this cool mosaic from Cheryl's blog and wanted one of my own!

To create this:
01. Answer each of the questions below using the [Flickr] search engine.
02. Choose a photo from the first three pages.
03. Copy the URL of your favorite photos [here].
04. Then share with the world.
01. First Name
02. Favourite Food

11. One Word That Describes Me
12. My LiveJournal Name

Look at how pretty my mosaic is!! ^^
02. I have recently rekindled my love for dim sum. It must be at least 6 years since I had one. I'm so grateful that there are so many vegetarian dim sum dishes here! *prances*
04. Many people would think pink is my favourite colour but it changes from time to time. I think colours are prettier together instead of one solid colour.
09. Lol! I thought the picture of the female scientist was funny but not as funny as cheryl's chosen picture for question 01 here .
11. One word that describes me: Bubbly
12. I don't have a LiveJournal so I used my username for blogger instead.

Bling bling balls

I'm not a christian but Christmas is one of the best holidays ever!

I remember decorating christmas trees as a young child when we lived with a christian family.
We were made to write to Santa once. I wrote, that because I've been such an awfully good girl, I should get a Barbie doll, a collection of her clothes, a Barbie doll house AND a red Barbie car for her to cruise around in.
We were all greedy when we were kids, okay? (=_=)
I was pretty disappointed when I only received a Barbie doll and a separate Princess Barbie outfit. I thought Santa was a big cheat then.

After that, we were not made to write to Santa anymore.

Anyway, this year for christmas, Josh wanted to get a tree!

It's actually pretty tall. A total of 180cm in height.

Kyaah! Look at the pretty ornaments!! (*.*)

We also got a can of fake snow and sprayed it all over the tree.

Very pretty, no?


The photo here really doesn't do it justice!
I'm really happy with the results (as I have awesome decorating skills).
