It's Singin on Culture Night, Cycling Trip and the Competitive "Biatch"

Yeah! Finally I have quite abit of updates. First, thanks to Ammie, She'd ask me to sing for Culture Night again! *Yippie* And what's even better, I've got some pretty girls (Sharon & Sookyan) and handsome guy (Ah Hao) for my cast in the music performance. It will be another chinese song, there will be ballet, fire sparklers and crutches used, and nooo I'm not gonna reveal much, you have to stay tuned for the video which will be up in a few weeks time. And Eileen, Ying and I will be singing another English song too, with Alex and Nick playing the keyboard and guitar respectively. Now the only worry is darling's and my china costumes will arrive in time for the night. *Fingers crossed* :o

Anzac Day Cycling Trip to Hazelwood pondage
Anyway, we went for a cycling trip around churchill and hazelwood power station on Wed. It's was super tiring! We cycled for 4 hours and our arses hurt like hell and the next day was even worse, cause every part of our body felt sore, but it was all good, we had the fun and the exercise. :)

Belated Birthday Prezzies from Evon
Then, I also received my very belated birthday prezzies from Evon. Never mind they were late, it was the thought that count. See, how cuteeee they are and how "so-mel" they are too. :D

Another thing; I was thinking of joining an upcoming Badminton Tournament. And I'd have paired with darling if only we coordinate better(And if his ankle weren't a "pain"). Sometimes I feel, I can be a competitive "biatch". Somehow I seemed to coordinate better with another malaysian guy called Wangwei, and so I signed up for the Mix Doubles with him instead. I still feel bad though darling doesn't really show it. :( *Promise we'll pair up for tennis matches in future.* B)

Lamenting again, the Celebrity quiz and Tubby the Chef

Len was bugging me to update my blog a couple of days ago, and I told her there was nothing happening to update about. So life is back to boringness after the Easter hols, and can you believe it? Australia doesn't have anymore public holidays in the 2nd half of the year except for the coming Anzac day and Melbourne Cup day! So it means it all work and no play for the rest of the year unless you take your annual leave. :(

Anyway, I took a Celebrity Quiz on Nine MSN:

Total Score: 19

16 - 19: Magnum Ego Caramel

You're a healthy Magnum Ego Caramel, and you're not afraid to show it — it just oozes out. It's got you in some sticky situations but your convincing act fools most into thinking you're just sweet.

You too can take the quiz here

Although I really have no idea what that actually means, but what the heck, I was bored. So other than that, life evolves around badminton, tennis and swimming (plus gaming and reading :P) after work everyday or during the weekends. Yes, that might seem like I'm kinda sports crazy lately, but damn the "pudgyness" is still there; Maybe because I eat as much too. *sign* And how can I help when I get to eat good food like this at times:

Delectable dishes created by Chef Tubby. Did I mention before that he's a great cook? The long hours at work mean that when I get home, I'm too lazy to cook anymore. So darling spoils me sometimes by cooking me a specialty meal when he has an inspiration. :D We always sit down and look at the food, and I'll ask him to describe it as it would be in a menu, then we'll eat and discuss about what ingredients or sauce is missing or too much. Mum always thought that it might be a good idea to open a restaurant in future. *dreams* woah, ladyboss, uhuhh, uhuhh! B)

Jasper's Birthday and Shoppaholic Blog Updates

Oh how can I forget, it was Jasper's 1st birthday on Sunday. And since chocolate and cakes were a no-no (not that pastries were exactly acceptable, but less damage though), we got him an Apple Custurd pastry pie. Silly boy didn't even bother, all he wanted to do was to get on with it and to eat his "cake". Eileen, Dom and Ying even sang him a birthday song. *beams*

And ooh, I have also updated the Insane Shoppaholic blog. :D So you can check out more shopping if you're interested. Not much though cause I'm tryin to save. (Or not?)

A little space to think of "You" and darling's and my trip to Geelong

Remember the time when you hug your best friend on the last day of school, promising each other that you'll stay in touch and contact each other no matter what, where and when? And then after a year or two, the calls cease, the emails lessen, the messages have no replies. Well, like my cousin used to say, "Its the place and convenience." Sometimes in life, you wonder, have we really reached a point of understanding that we think we no longer need to remind our best friends once in awhile that they are still in our minds? I don't agree with that. No matter how my life goes, I'd still like to tell my best friends who are faraway from me in another country, that I love you all heaps and that there is never a day that I don't miss you all.

Anyway back to a lighter thing, it was a long time since darling and I spent a holiday together; just the two of us, plus Jasper. A 'no worries', relaxing trip to Geelong where we stayed up at the farms, walk the enchanting waterfront, visited the Wool Museum and eat a whole load of yummy food. And we decided to wait the next time when a group can make it for the waterfront activities like taking the helicopter, seaplane, jet boat and cycling.
Trip to Geelong - Day 1
We went on good friday and the 1st priority was to go for the Good Friday mass at church. St .Mary's in Geelong had the same traditional architecture as most of the churches here in Oz. The stain glass windows, nicely-carved stone pillars and musical windpipes. A day of obligation is a day of obligation and I still have no idea how so many people can skip mass, go as and when they like it, yet have the nerve to receive communion. So they say, "God helps those who help themselves". And if next time you wanna ask God why your wish wasn't fulfilled, maybe you should ask yourself if you have been doing your duties as a baptised catholic first.

Trip to Geelong - Day 2
On the second day, we visited the wool museum, had lunch at the Black Sheep cafe, took another walk on the other side of the water front where the beach was, left a little time for shopping at Myer(there was a Sale!), headed back to melbourne for asian groceries shopping and lost some money at Crown playing roulette because darling said he had a "feeling" that day, but apparantly it wasn't the right sort of "feeling". ahahaha.. :)
