its all getting real

My ASOS order came a couple of days ago. Really nothing makes you feel happier than receiving a gift from mr postman and ripping it off in the middle of boring work day. What's inside is the striped dress and the bow belt that I posted in the previous post - I love them both. Not sure what to wear with the belt though because it has red waist band thing...

Speaking of which, I signed my actual contract yesterday for my new job and sent it off last night. I'm starting next Monday. Today is my second last day and it's starting to feel like ZOMG ITS ALL REAL I'M LEAVING. I'm actually quite sad because I truly enjoy working with the people here. Best colleagues ever. It will be easier if they're all evil bitches but they are not. Hopefully my next gig will have people as awesome as them. I'm quite sad but very excited at the same time. I'm quite nervous though as I actually have the so called Probation Period. I'm sure I'll be fine but I'm just nervous.  

Isn't last weekend just fabulous? I made my first beach visit this S/S last Saturday. It was fabulous; a bit windy though. I did went in the water but it was absolutely freezing so I only last for like 10 minutes. Can't wait until it's all properly warm! I went to Chinatown on the Sunday and found out that EasyWay now does this giant 1L cups now. Being an Asian I am, of course I bought it. It was frigging humongous. Thankfully I have the boy to share it with. We went to eat in one of those food courts (I think its called Dickson's place? don't remember) and ordered one of those fabulous looking Thai deep fried fish that everyone was eating in that food court at that time. It was meh. 

The pizza was actually from the week before. I can't stomach pizzas, especially the thick one, but the boy absolutely lovesssssss pizzas and kept nagging for it. So we had it last Tuesday. It was  fab but my stomach wasn't too happy after. Not only pizzas but I also don't like bread especially white bread. I like sourdough though. I wonder if its just me not liking bread or am I actually kind of gluten intolerant? I haven't check with the GP but maybe I should *self ramble* Who else feels weird after eating bread?

Anyway gotta go. Have a great weekend ya'll!xxxx

Goddammit ASOS. Why do you make shopping so easy and why are you oh-so-affordable.. especially with your discount codes! Here's a couple of things that I bought lately....

I have received everything above except for the stripe dress and also the bow belt. All fits well (I am size 8 and always buy UK10, but I know some size 8 people can still fit to UK8) except the sandals, which is about half size too big (I'm size 38/7.5AU and I bought UK 6... should have bought UK5) but it's not so noticeable so its fine. The quality of the printed dresses are meh... I actually expected better but for $16 ish each I'm not complaining. Not sure why I keep buying from them when I know that their quality is in par with Chica booti/Valleygirl/the likes... maybe it's the idea of receiving and opening a box from mr postman.

Have a good week everyone xxxx :)

come away with me

Bejeeesuss, blogging regularly is hard. I do have a reason why I'm off for a while from my blog though. Its because...
I was off to the Gold Coast!! Australia's biggest playground! Australia's Jersey Shore!! That's me and a friend being the typical AZN tourist there. 

This was 2 weeks ago. I went with the Mr and also with the bestie and also her Mr. We planned this trip 1-2 months earlier and almost didn't make it due to you know, the general risk related to trip-ping with another couple. But everything turns out ok except the weather. It was gloomy and sprinkling for all the 3 days we were there *tears :'(

See how gloomy it is. Excuse the thunder thighs. 

Went to visit this little guy in Sea World, they are amazing. Looks exactly like how they look in Happy Feet!

*Insert Jaws theme song here*
We also went to Movie World but I didn't take much picture there - too busy riding on stomach-churning rides. My favourite was the Arkham Asylum (at the back). I missed out on the Superman ride; I heard its really good but the line was frigging 90 minutes!! so screw that. 
Other than that I don't do much given that we're only there for 3 days 2 nights. Ate some pretty weird rice burgers which is basically just like eating rice and chicken teriyaki.. 

Moving on... so the big news in the past month is that.. I got a new job! horray. I wasn't really looking but got lucky. An agent that I've been talking to the past 3 months or so called me out of nowhere about a job and wants me to see the manager in (future employer here).. at 730am!! 7.30AM!!! So I went to say hey, without hoping much, but they end up hiring me by lunch time. So it was tres awesome. 

Leaving my current work place will be sad. I love the people here so so much, but the travel is just painful (1.5hrs one way). My new place will be only 20 minutes away by bus, so it will be epic. Also, the role will be a bit different, so I thought that it will be good for me to try on something different and see if I like it. 

Anyway, here comes the 'outfit post':
I bought this mirror/jewellery holder in Target a month ago or so- they are epic.  
This dress was $16 in Chica booti LOL. I was so happy when I found it.

What I wore on my trek to Daiso Chatswood on the weekend. more on that later.

I can't believe that I have never tried Ben and Jerry's ice cream until last Saturday. Those things are epic. My favourite so far is the chocolate brownie flavour. YUMMMMMMM. 
I received these yesterday from iHerb- Microdermabrasion (damn isn't that hard to spell!)scrub by Derna e and also travel essentials kit from Real Techniques. Review coming up sometime soon...

Well there you go!! I made a post!! woohoo!
Now back to actually eating my lunch. Have a great day everyone!! xxxx
