“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”

– Mahatma Gandhi


I am extremely happy that one of my stresses has been cleared! Well in a few days to be more specific. Legit, there is still quite a bit more but still the less of it the better. For me, juggling 3 jobs makes it quite impossible to experience a long-weekend (3 days off). Even getting two consecutive days off is still a miracle haha. But I love working to be honest, I get reckless on the second day off.

Work benefits is one rarity for me as well, from the jobs this one gives me discounts to AMF! I can probably work on my bowling skills, because I get smashed each time by E. I’m finding myself settling well into this office job, the team is lovely and the working hours is perfect for me. At the moment, I’m going to try and squeeze everything into this last day of freedom and tackle this 5 days of work starting tomorrow! E and I also checked out Knafeh Bakery, at the moment I’m uploading the vlog on Youtube so check it out and in a few days there will be a post about it as well. Have a happy week everyone 🙂

A weekend away to Melbourne

Melbourne was a refreshing mini-trip, that I have been longing for whilst juggling work and studying. Being able to spend time elsewhere than Sydney, with the most important person in my life, gave me that rejuvenating hit and gave me an opportunity to catch up with my boyfriend.

We arrived 3 hours before our flight was due, EJ kept drifting off to sleep, whilst I kept looking around trying to find a hot chocolate to keep me up.

Sad to say that most of our days in Melbourne was cloudy, though luckily it didn’t pour! So we had a chance to explore, going into lane ways, eating at various cafes and checking out what Melbourne had to offer. I really do wish I had another day to spend there, because just walking down the Yarra River was so breathtaking.

Got to let y’all know that getting to and from the airport was a cheesecake! You just take a Sky Bus that would cost you about $18 per adult. We were about to take a taxi, but when we found out about this bus and there was a free shuttle service to our hotel, we said hell yeah!

The useful map that Stamford Hotel provided us

I think I’ve gained some weight from all the foods that we ate, especially trying out their coffees and their hot chocolate. I honestly did not come across an awful hot chocolate, they were all on point.

The graffitis’ were so impressive that they were gallery-worthy, because of how detailed and meaningful they were. Unfortunately, when we got to Hosier Lane it was blocked off because of construction.

Oh Melbourne, I will visit you again. I love the free city circle tram, gets you honestly to all the major cites.

Clovelly Beach

Clovelly Rd, Sydney NSW, AUS 

Looking back at these photos I took from this beach… makes me wish I had all the time in the world to go beach jumping.

It’s weird to see a bunch of people on the concrete next to the ocean, because when you think of the beach you picture people on sand right? But honestly, it doesn’t matter if there’s water and space I’d go anyways. It’s a perfect little get-away from huge commercial beaches like Bondi, because there’s less people and more parking space hahaha.

The sea was so clear, so if you want to go snorkelling bring yourself a pair! There’s no waves at the shore, but when you get further into the ocean the waves does get a bit rough. Being a natural chicken I didn’t jump in and got my boyfriend instead to jump in. You don’t have to be worried of drowning, because there’s a life-guard club right next to the beach! To also add to the coolness of this beach, is that there is also a lap pool!

I recommend bring your own feed down to this beach, because there’s only one eatery at the beach and you have to drive to the closest town to grab a bite.

RATE: 4/5

My Ideal

This is honestly my ideal for the night…

photo (1)

Instead I’ll be going to my bf’s mate’s brother’s party. I’m not bothered to travel all the way for some house party seriously. I’d rather see the fireworks OR stay home and eat sugary foods all night while watching One Piece haha.

The best thing about today, was that work was only until 1:30pm PLUS payday! So I got to invest in some yummy face goodies, which I will need to make a review about after using it a couple of times.

What my New Year’s resolution are? Work harder, pay of my debts and hopefully pass university and less slacking off with my Japanese studies.

Happy New Years to everyone, make this following year count!

24th August

That date is significant, because that was the only date of the whole gloomy month when it wasn’t raining! See the picture below? That’s what I would love to do when summer hits.

Moving on, went to a party recently and it got me thinking how time flew by. Like we still look the same, but there was something different, maybe it was the difference in closeness or how we speak to each other, either way I like it. I wouldn’t change it for the world, because for once I don’t have to worry about peoples’ gossips and their crazy lives, I only get to be surrounded by people who I believe will have a significant impact in my life. It’s my life anyway I should be caring about.

Jam/Accoustic Competition

I have failed to recently mention my partner’s extraordinary victory at The Australian Brewery competition last Sunday! No he didn’t get first, but second! Which honestly I was surprised because of his few mishaps with his performance (preety hilarious). Hopefully he gets time to invest in a good quality guitar so not only he would have his own, but also he can take up more competitions and gigs 🙂 Yes, I sound very proud.

The competition was really, really tough in my opinion. The contestants all had their own flair when they performed and each had their own unique voices. I can practically remember each performance, because each one was so significantly different and great song choices. It was a great Sunday afternoon indeed.

To be honest with you, I don’t 100% agree with the overall winners… but hey congratulations to all of them 🙂 I remember one of the guy’s guitar work, it was amazing!
