Birdies on a string

Robbie will be looking after Peanut and Sky whilst I travel halfway around the world to explore Europe! We weren't sure where to put the birds because they're rather noisy to be in the house and cats might scare/eat 'em if they're left outside somewhere. Hence - the rope! We tied it at chest-level so it can be fed easily. It was rather windy outside, i hope it doesn't swing too much, but we found an old white bedsheet to wrap around (held by pegs) to keep 'em warm at night.

You don't mess with the Zohan (2008)


This is a hilarious comedy starring Adam Sandler who does an excellent job being an Israeli Soldier who wants to be a hair dresser. He fakes his death against a Palestinean terrorist in the Middle East before heading to America to live his dream. Alot of sexual innuendo and some of the parts were really silly but still funny all the same. Highly recommended for laughs and Adam Sandler fans.

My blog is becoming a movie review...it's holidays!

Drillbit Taylor (2008)

This movie is about two boys entering high school and getting bullied because of how geeky they look. Sick and tired of being pushed around, they hire a body guard (Owen Wilson) to protect them from the bullies however Drillbit Taylor has his own agenda in mind. Good for laughs but nothing special.

Getting ready to travel

I have been warned that there are many pick-pocketers in Europe and to keep my handbags and wallets close! I found a very likable brand called Design Go that makes many useful travel accessories in vibrant colours and designs! I bought the money belt --> which is worn next to the skin and covered by clothes and the glo strap for security and identification of my luggage. It's bright pink :D!

I was looking through the site for more of their products and I really love the Pink hearted locks and mini torches! It's not just security things that they sell, their products ranges from Electrical needs, Mosquito & Personal Health, Pillows, Locks, Straps, Tags to Clothes and other travel essentials.

Leonardo Da Vinci Machines Exhibition

We wanted to go the Da Vinci Expo but we got there at ten to 5 and it shuts at 5pm. The good news is we still got to take pictures behind the Mona Lisa painiting - no the good news is, it will be open everyday 10am - 5pm until August the 10th (They extended it from the 21 of July).
Will have to try and catch it before it ends :). For more information: click here

Bocce and Twister Picnic

On Sunday, we went on a little picnic with some Uni friends at Kings Park. We were planning to have a barbeque but realised it will probably all be used up so we just brought in food instead. Me and Robbie had the drinks duty which is probably one of the easiest but I have to say, we did a pretty crappy job. Our drinks weren't even cold, no cups, no eskies, just went to the shops 5 mins before heading off to the picnic! Ash, on the other hand, had the desserts duty and she did such a great job ---> babycakes with blue icing and purple and silver sprinkles, chocolate mousse sprinkled with more chocolate (flakes) and assorted lollies!!

Anyhoos, there was also salad and chicken, chips and nuggets from chicken treat and chips and crackers! After eating we had a game of twister except we were all very un-flexible and decided to play a game of bocce instead! I have never played Bocce before, it is like a game of lawn bowls except instead of rolling the balls, you throw them! (The aim of the game is the get closest to the jack, which is this mini ball) That was fun! It was a little bit dangerous with little kids running around the park but ten points if you hit a kid!

The sun was nice and hot that day and I lazed around for a bit. Also had a bit of kick-around with Robbie, of a netball that someone had brought. It was a nice day out.

I heart superman

Today I bought Robbie a Bape Superhero Jacket, I am so in love with it! Ain't it just so awesome? Wonder woman is the cutest character on it I reckon. Usually I don't like most of the Bape designs because they're weird and complicated but some of them are alright. Robbie also has a skeleton one from Bape which glows in the dark.

Be Kind Rewind (2008)

I have been watching a lot of movies lately, but I must admit this one didn't do much for me. I haven't seen any of other movies from Michel Gondry but he is known for his visual techniques so perhaps this is why I lack to see the beauty of this movie. The trailer was so much better than the movie itself however Jack Black is still one of my favourites.

The film starts off with the final production before introducing Mos Def who is asked to run the last VHS tape shop in the neighborhood. Jerry (Jack Black) tries to convince Mos Def to come with him to sabotage the power plant because he thinks they're trying to melt his brain. Mos Def comes along but doesn't go through with the operation and Jerry gets stuck in an electrical current and gets magnetised.

Jerry manages to erase all the tapes, which leaves them to re-make (swede) the movies using all kinds of 'techniques' that Gondry is famous for. I wouldn't recommend this movie unless you have a passion for film-making or have nothing else better to do.

Kids say the darnest things

Today Robbie's Mum told us about how she saw one of Moni's friends, Isobel, catching the bus, but she wasn't sure if it was her because she had grown awfully tall. I asked if it was the aboriginal one from her old school, and she said yes. Moni asked "Is she aboriginal? Does that mean she's from Aborigina?" hahhaha ...so her dad was trying to explain to her that they are the first Australians and she was like "How can she be the first when she's only 7!" and her dad continued trying to explain by saying "Not her, her forefathers, forefathers" Monica's respone: "FOUR FATHERS? That's like having 4 dads screaming at me".

Meet Po: Kung Fu Panda

This has got to be one of the funniest cartoons I've seen in awhile. I just love the character Po, he is so damn lazy, reminds me very much of myself. It's a story about this Panda that's crazy about Kung Fu and the legendary Furious Five, and if you have seen the previews they are the Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper and Monkey. I absolutely love the names of the masters, Shifu and Oogway, which means like master and turtle in mandarin. Po 'accidentally' gets chosen to be the the dragon warrior which seems like an impossible task because he's so fat and lazy. It features a lot of famous actors for the voiceovers such as Jack Black, Angelina Jollie, Lucy Lui and Jacky Chan.

Salami and Cheese Burger

I'm sick of eating sandwiches so I bought some burger buns instead :)

Affordable Jay Jays

This is me getting ready for work and showing you my brand new jacket :). This little eskimo costed a measley $39, I bought the army version a year or two ago for $70 and they're still in stock but for almost half its price. I've been looking around for fur jackets but they usually range our $70-100+ so I thought this was a bargain!

Birdy Buddies & Birdie Bunks

My little budgies have been shivering since the start of the cold, cold weather and I thought I'd shop around for something warm for them after exams. I went to City Farmers on High Road and man, it's one huge warehouse selling all kinds of pet supplies and food. I saw alot of dog clothes as well, very cute. Anyhoos, I went to the bird section and I wanted so many accessories :( Birdie Bunk and two Birdy Buddies. I bought a green one for peanut and a blue one for Sky :). Saving up for a bird stand and a larger bird cage!

Sweet Surprise

After a long winded day from over-singing I went home and Rob was like "aren't you visiting me?" I'm like yeah, just got home. So I went over to his place and he was like "Let's go out for dinner" and I thought we were just going out for take away or something and when I got into the car AND THERE WAS FLOWERS - first thought "Shit, did I forget an occasion or something" but no, he was just being sweet. Gosh they're so gorgeous!! Went to Hog's Breath for some hog tail fries and chicken parmagiana!! Thanks robbbbb!! <3

Doreens Birthday Bash

Happy 21st Birthday DOREEN!!!

Today was my last exam!! I was so happy to be finished. We were going to go celebrate with Doreen turning 21!!
After a long discussion of where to eat for lunch...long as in ...a week long... it is already the day and we still hadn't decided where we wanted to go for Lunch! We ended up going to Ipoh Restaurant at Myaree because we were going to go Karaoke right after that. I messaged Grace earlier to get some candles and she arrives and we were all just talking and she blurts out.. "I brought the candles!" me and Stella's faces just dropped because we were going to buy a surprise cake for Doreen. So to cover it up, Grace decided to add "f-forr my Mum, her birthday is on Friday". Lol.. Gw .. too bad Doreen DIDNT BUY IT!!! :P

After lotsa yummy food we headed to Utopia for some Karaoke action! Nothing like releasing those stress hormones from exams by busting out a song :P After some songs later, me and Grace went downstairs to purchase a choc sponge cake with beautifully decorated chocolate roses on top of it and lit up the candles before entering the room singing Happy Birthday :D accompanied by Tina's singing on the mic! T'was fun fun and then 3 hours went by in a flash and we drenched our dry, hoarse throats with 'sweet tea' full of passion.

Good day, Doreen got her birthday wish ;).

Messing around with photoimpression once again


My friend invited me to add this application - The PackRat game, during exam week, worst ...idea....ever!!

For those of you that haven't heard of the game, it is a ridiculously addictive game of collecting virtual cards by buying, stealing and creating and vaulting them before someone steals them! The thing with this game is, once I start...I can't stop until I've finished a complete set and vaulted them or else my friends will steal them. Most of the time, the cards you are looking for don't turn up for hours and once you steal from someone's page, it's safe for ten minutes. So you have to wait ten minutes everytime before you can steal from that page again. It's so blardy time consuming and is the biggest waste of time EVER! Anyhoos, with each card made, sets vaulted and items stolen, you gain experience points slowly which raises you to a higher level. At certain levels, certain shops are open and you have access to more range of cards...I finally accomplished level 25 which opens up all the god-damn shops and completed one feat (all the cards in a collection) which required a god-damn huge effort. After all that, I gain one rare card, 500 credits and a title of Numpty Bunny...Hardly seems worth it, but I can finally stop playing the stupid game.

(There's heaps of feats except one is more than enough for me)

Doing the Karen Cheng

I felt complied to write an entry on the facebook group that Karen Cheng created called "Doing the Karen Cheng". Quite a neat idea I must say, everybody loves pictures in this day and age. Previously classified by me as the 'Myspace picture', (term usage: Omg that is such a myspace picture!), it is now known as 'The Karen Cheng'. For those of youse that don't know what either term means, it's basically taking a picture of yourself in front of a mirror. I guess the differentiation between a 'Myspace picture' and 'The Karen Cheng' is that there are some guidelines that need to be abided which is mentioned here. Check out all the cool pictures that everyone else have posted here.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

Guess what I watched today!
If you liked the lion, the witch and the wardrobe then you're bound to like Prince Caspian!! It's much better in my opinion!

The four siblings are called back once again into the land of Narnia, one year later, where they are required help the Narnians against the evil King that wants to kill his nephew, Prince Caspian, so his newborn son can have the heir to the throne! Alot more fighting scenes and cute characters :) and weird creatures. It makes me want to read the books! I'm looking forward to the next movie :)

Dog in backyard

I was studying this morning for my exam when I heard a dog barking in the backyard and my brother trying to shoo it away. I was thinking 'what in the world' and went to see...My fence fell down! Must've been from last night's rain (Or the little white dog)! The little dog kept barking and barking but eventually it meandered its way back to the neighbor's house. Now what am I going to do with the fence, Argh!

Boiled Egg, Soya Sauce & Black Pepper


I boiled eggs today and put soya sauce and black pepper on it...DAMN IT TASTE SO NICE! Anyhoos was scrambling around for a picture (pun not intended) of an egg with pepper on it. Didn't find too many that matched my criteria but I did come across a recipe that looks extremely appetizing! It's called curried devilled eggs! For printable recipe, please click here.
Basically, mash the boiled egg yolk with curry powder, mayo, salt and pepper and pipe it back into the boiled egg white! Yumm! Easy snack ideas :)

Good Deeds II

There's something about good deeds. It's not the fact that by doing good deeds it makes you feel good inside (that's just a bonus) but it just assures people that there actually is someone out there that cares. These random act of kindness might just brighten up someone else's day. This time, it's not me that actually did the good deed.

Today we went to KFC for lunch, and we just minding our own business and eating our Zinger burger and 2 piece feed when this man was walking to each table and asking a question. He finally came to our table and asked rather politely,

"Could you do me a small favour please? If you have any loose change you could kindly give me?"

But unfortunately, we didn't have loose change and used our cards to purchase lunch so we apologized and he went to his next table. It was the fifth table, the one next to ours where he asked the exact same question and this man on the fifth table asked him if he needed the change for lunch. The man said yes. So the man that was eating said, " Sure I'll treat you to lunch". The man politely asked, "What can you afford?" And the man from the fifth table replied, "Pick anything from the menu, my friend" And I thought WHAT A NICE MAN HE WAS!!!! WE NEED MORE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD OUT THERE LIKE HIM! HE'S SO INSPIRATIONAL! IT MAKES ME WANNA DO A GOOD DEED! I wish I had the initiative to purchase the poor man lunch, but it didn't come to mind and he was asking for loose change which we didn't have. I just thought it was sad that so many people turned him away. I'm sure the tables around him were thinking the same thing, what a damn nice man! Food for thought.

Holy Hammerhead!

Messing with Photoimpression.

Fight Club

I have been watching alot of movies lately, when I really should be studying for my exams. Anyhoos, last night I watched Fight Club which is movie made back in 99' starring Edward Norton and Brad Pitt. This movie is very different from your typical films, it has alot of 'what the' moments and for that reason I quite like it. It is about an office guy that has everything but feels empty inside so he attends all these cancer support groups. He's comfortable for a minute until another faker invades all his support groups. With the help of a soaps salesman they create this global club that allow men to vent their aggression called the fight club which eventually spirals outta control.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Watched this on Sunday night on channel ten! Arghh so excited for Prince Caspian to come out. This Thursday hooray! Reminder of the old one: "Four kids travel through a wardrobe to the land of Narnia and learn of their destiny to free it with the guidance of a mystical lion"

New one: "The Pevensie siblings return to Narnia, where they are enlisted to once again help ward off an evil king and restore the rightful heir to the land's throne, Prince Caspian!"

Panda Earphones

Yesterday we went shopping in the city and we saw a panda earphone in prouds that was HALF PRICE. Original price was $70 so it cut down to $35 bucks. It was the last pair so I let my friend buy it. I WANT ONE!!!! Apparently, they are the only Prouds store that have it in stock! There was also a bear version but it's not as awesome as the panda ones. If anyone sees it anywhere TELL ME!!! Comes in a little blue casing (below).

Happy Birthday to my brother!

My homemade card

Hahaha, they left the tag on
