ENVY ME

hey people!! so much has been going on in my life right now i barely have time to breathe! :D

im so excited cos i have such great news to share with you guys!! guess what??!

i got free passes to go watch the premiere screening of toy story 3 in 3D next monday!! yay! :D

hey howdy hey! 
so im gonna be watching it earlier than everyone else, way earlier from its official release date! :D 

im so happy! i dont care if im too old for kiddy movies! the memory of watching toy story and toy story2 when i was still a snot nosed kid with pigtails makes me smile and im so delighted that im gonna be one of the first to see toy story 3!
*jumps around*

oh and i also got premiere tickets to go see nightmare on elm street! then again, this might turn out to be a bad slasher movie remake but i dont care its free and i have em tickets and im going so yay!
:)

i applied for a job the other day, and i got a call asking me to go for an interview tomorrow.

*takes a deep breath*

life has been good to me lately, and i dont know why. i mean, im always happy nowadays and ive seen a different side of life that i never saw when i still was a kid with a half baked brain in high school living in my secluded corner. really, i dont know what i did to be blessed so much.

im just taking time to drink in life and stroll along its overgrown paths, sitting amid the flowers and watching quietly from the sidelines of life as people hurry along in the fast lane. im living life to the fullest and feeling so alive and exuberated.

life is like the ocean, but then the storms of life, makes you see and appreciate the pockets of tranquility and beauty that exist in between.

im neither pretty, rich, socially affluent, or have an easy life, but im just content and glad to be doing what im doing, to be who i am, where i am right now

flowers are so delicate and pretty. and fragile too. theyre more like us humans than we realise, coming in all shapes and sizes, here one day, gone the next, every one of them beautiful and unique. sometimes people should just take a time out from work and all that hassle to sit quietly and acknowledge life, y'know? :)

wth im think im being way too whimsical and melodramatic. so unlike me. :) but really, i do mean what i say. people get so caught up in the mad flurry of life that sometimes it never even occurs to us to take a step back and appreciate the things that we have, to say thank you to a God up there that created us and this unique world we live in.

ok,you people prolly think ive gone off the bend. i'll shut up now. :)

God, thank you.
 i love life. :)

THIS LOVE

this is my last post about aussie D:

we flew back to brisbane from townsville, and cheryl came to take me out for dinner! :) btw she's a church friend and my piano teacher when i was still in primary school.

cheryl and cheryl, haha

guess what car she drives?

yes, thats a proton wira! :D

she took me to eat with her friends at this restaurant called 'International Hotel', which apparently is really famous for its steaks

its name is Int'l Hotel, but i dont think its a hotel though

pics of nyoms. this is only to be expected when viewing my blog. you readers should know that by now already, that i never fail to post up pics whenever im involved in anything concerning food. :D 


my steak!! huge juicy goodness you can sink your teeth deep into and all the flavours and juices just explode in your mouth. wth just thinking about it makes me salivate. 

cheryl's lamb shanks. shoot, this pic's overexposed. it tasted damn good though.

marbled beef. yum!

look at how thick and juicy my steak was!

they found it amusing that i cut off all the fats from my steak. what, is it so funny? XD
look at that. imagine if i didnt cut it off, wtcrap. all those fat wouldve gone straight to my thighs and i DEFINITELY dont need that.

gosh this is how the roads on brisbane are like at 9pm. O.O nothing like the roads in msia at the said hour, eh?

cheryl was damn enthusiastic about taking me to see the University of Queensland so i was like "University of Queensland? err..ok i guess"

 "what, dont you wanna go?"

"its just a uni right..whats so special about it?"

"oh this isnt just any ordinary uni! couples come here to take their wedding pics and magazines come here to do their photoshoots for their covers!"

that got me all excited and i immediately said "ok let's go!"

and gosh she was right, it was really beautiful. gorgeous architecture with granite halls and granite arches, it was really more than just a concrete building for higher education, which was my initial perception of what it would be. it was just too bad that i went at night, and my camera couldnt capture all the details.

it looked like a cross between those buildings you see when you watch shows like 'gladiator' or the ancient monuments in italy a la 'angels and demons'. timeless architecture with minute details painstakingly crafted, UQ really made me eat my words of it being "just a university"

hallway.

bushes around the area



she then took me up to mount coot-tha, a mountain at the outskirts of brisbane city.

the night time view from mount coot-tha.

hee



and the next day, it was time for me to return home. :( 
uncle jon and i woke up at 5am to make the one hour plus drive to coolangatta.

beautiful aussie sky in appearing in all its glory to bid me farewell. :'(

my flight ticket home

last meal in australia. i'll miss their food sooooooo bad!! D:

saying bye to the gold coast.

look look, we were flying over a rainbow! :D

my in flight meal, rendang.

i found it really unique that these pools were all different in colour although they were all in close proximity to each other

fat aids, hah.

and so that concludes my stay in australia. im so grateful to my aunt for giving me the opportunity to go! had a smashing awesome time and i really hope to go back again soon!

I'M SELLING MY CAMERA FOR ONLY RM200!!

due to the fact that i now have a brand new ixus, im selling off my previous camera, the fujifilm finepix a850.
its a damn good camera and im sorry to have to tell it that its days of serving me are over but oh well. :)



i bought it for RM400, letting it go for RM200. which pertains to the good reason of why you SHOULD buy it, cos its
HALF PRICE Y'ALL!!

enclosed in this post are some sample shots taken with this camera. 
note - all these pics are posted as is, directly from my camera to your screen without any photoshopping or tweaking by any other means. 

Emerge Youth Conference last year.

beautiful sky!

saw this funny growth on a tree stump during jungle tracking in RBS. dont you think it looks like a little like the grinch or gremlin or some other equally pixie like being sitting with its legs pulled up to its chest and leering at you with a grin? taken on macro

pebbles

pebbles + my painted toenails :)

pretty stones on the beach

nature

sunrise above the clouds.

this camera is especially commended on its manual features. like seriously, you can fiddle with everything, its exposure level, lighting, etc etc (theres more but im too lazy to go get the camera and check properly now) 

ok people, so if theres anyone out there who wants to get a compact point and shoot with maximum convenience and minimum effort, this camera is the one for you.

its a very good starter camera too, for those who are interested in photography before moving on to a more expensive, complex camera. i learnt lots about manual controls from it.

and also, you should buy it cos













FREAKING CHEAP ALREADY TAKES MAD CHIO PICHAS WHAT YOU WANT SOME MORE BUY LAH!!

yeah, thats the most important reason. to help with the finances of a poor unemployed girl.
XD
