Night Stroll in Melbourne City

Date: 13 Dec 2013

Hasben had a conference in Melbourne for APFIS. Kimi and I spent most of our time in the hotel room, sleeping. Since tonight was our last night before returning home, we forced ourselves to explore the city and asked Ging to join in.

Parked our car at Collingwood Station and took the train to Filnders St Station.

Crossed the street to Federation Square.

It was a Friday night!

Took some pictures of the Victorian Art Centre tower.

Reached Southbank.

The Yarra River:

Passed by a christmas tree at Southgate:

Ate ice cream at Trampoline. Just to be sure, we asked the girl for vegetarian, non-alcoholic ice cream and she said "All of them". Yummy!

Tried to enter Eureka Tower but it was already closed at 10PM, but was able to buy some souvenirs at the gift shop.

Crossed the pedestrian bridge over Yarra River back to Flinders St Station.

Managed to hop on a train at 11PM. But Hasben was craving for McDonlad's so we had to drive to Brunswick for a Halal McD. He has been dreaming of the McChicken for quite some time now...

Another Birthday...

... What?!

Date: 23 November 2013

It has been a year since i got the iPad mini? I am no longer 28? (Yes, these are questions rather than statements). Time flies too fast and it is getting scarier. I mean, I have only a year left to say, "I am a lady in my twenties". Alarming, isn't it?

This year, Hasben was ready to celebrate at 11.45PM, although I was less enthusiastic. Being sleepy was no excuse as he still insisted on cake-cutting at 12AM sharp. The Bulgarian chocolate cake was, to be honest, too lovely for my own good.

Supriseeee...~ A really suspiciously healthy birthday gift this year - WiiFit!!! Am I really that obviously fat? Ha ha ha!

We tried the game and the board until 2AM. Even Kimi did not show any signs of being sleepy.

Was up quite late and decided to revisit Cobb's & Co Museum, this time with Shasha and Hana. I thought that Kimi will appreciate it more now that he is 2. The last time we went there, he was only a couple of months old. Hmmm... He was still not really interested with the coaches though.

In the evening, went to ZZ's house warming party, ate yummy nasi ayam and spaghetti. A bonus, I must say! Thanks for all the well wishes and doa!

The Effect of PhD...

... On Some Really Bad Days.

A whole day at lab can leave you feeling drained at the end of the day. Most of the time, the machine may not work on the first try. This nearly made me cry (drama queen).

Not to mention skipping lunch just so I can complete the whole thing before 3PM, which is the time to hurry home at the speed of light in order to perform Zohor prayer. And this whole time, Hasben was with me at the uni.

"So, what's for lunch?"
"Mmm... Nothing"
So it was M&Ms for me and microwave garlic bread for Hasben. It was his wish to marry someone who can cook like his mom, and my wish to marry someone like Chef Wan - apparently you don't get everything you wish for ;-)

At 5PM, it was time to pick Kimi up from daycare. At uni, I will miss the little tike and remember all the cute things about him but after a long day playing with friends, his moodiness is so incredible that I only have the energy to watch him throw tantrums every 5 minutes, rolling on the floor, screaming for something that I can't understand what. And then, he finally sleeps.

Peace and quiet... But the house is a shipwreck! It's exhausting just looking at the higgledy piggledy stacked dishes and piles of washed laundry on the floor! So I dragged my legs and chose the more critical of the two - dirty dishes are worse. Using the last bit of energy left, the kitchen was rid of unsightly dishes, and now its time to put my feet up for rest and relaxation...

Oh wait, guess who's up and needs a bath and a diaper change?... [>_<]"
