Haiz… the day to go back to my boring life is Singapore. haiz.. without my sister too. Our flight was at 3.30pm, so we reached at airport at abt almost 2pm to check in.. my lord the queue was like super long.. we stood there till like almost 3pm. Crazy. Of coz by den, me and Hansy’s eyes were starting to well up. haiz. And when we were abt to go into the gate, me and Hansy already had tears.. It’s always hard to separate from ur crazy sister..

On board, i was watching a show called “Thank God Ur Here”.. its an Australian program where ppl well mostly funny ppl are thrown into a situation and have to act out the scene. Kinda like an “Whose line is it anyway” style. It was damn funny. I watched all three episodes of it. haha. Den also watched “Enchanted”, i tot it was quite cute i guess… BUT i didnt get to watch the ending AS the plane was landing… wat the… oh well i’ll ask Jensy abt the ending.

Touchdown and stepped out of the airport and BURN… HOT LIKE HELLLLLLL… i’m melting…. sooooooo hot.. haiz… miss that cold air in Perth.

We didnt reali go anywhere today coz the closet from Ikea was to be delievered today in the afternoon. It came a little earlier and damn… its heavy.. my lord.. and Hansy juz got all excited abt fixing it, flauting her muscles.. haiz…

This has got to be one of the most frustrating times in our lives.. REALI mean it. At first we were doin it all jollyful den as the instructions were not clear, we did have to take it apart quite a few time..

We started on it at 4pm… until Alina came home at abt 7pm we were still doin it. Alina came and helped us. Too kind of a soul. haha.

By abt 9pm we cldnt take it, had to eat sth. Alina took us out for chinese food nearby. And den we started on it again. I tink it was almost 11pm by the time we were done with it. I hated it so much, my energy was completely drained…. haiz… nv DIY a BIG closet again. NEVER EVER..

But the finished feeling is great, we kept touching the closet. haha. Kept lookin at it. haiz, didnt noe we went to Perth to have to help to fix Hansy’s closet. haiz. haha.

Decided to let Mumsy sleep in more, so Hansy took me to her school. Very near the house she’s livin in. Abt 5 minutes walk onli. Met Rina-chan for a short while as she was goin to meet her frenz for lunch and den fly off to Melbourne for a holiday.

Hansy’s sch is pretty big, also went into the school bookshop where Hansy bought me her school’s japanese textbk. Den walked around the campus and also into the student village, Hansy tried callin her frenz livin in the student village but it seemed that most of them had left for holidays.

There is even a “chinese garden” in Murdoch Uni. haha

There is even a daycare center in the school where lecturers can put their kids there. Cool nei.

Den off to the student village where Hansy had first stayed last yr and met Sepi who was her best housemate. haha.

Den from the student village we walked to Kardinya Park which is no veri far to get groceries. Den Hansy told me she used to walk this path with Sepi and they used to sing Utda Hikaru’s Flavor of Life and Sepi wld keep taking pictures along the way. haha.

Went to eat Chicken Treats as i was a little hungry, den headed to K Mart and Coles. It was nice u noe, hanging out with Hansy alone as we do in Singapore when we’re goin to Kinokuniya. ahha..

At first i was wat? Swan Valley? Are we goin to c a ballet show or sth… haha.. turns out Swan Valley is a place where they sell famous stuff like wine, nougat, chocolates. We went with Hansy’s fren Eu Kim. Before that, we were waiting at a place, cant remember where, but i loved the old feeling of the building so had to snap a shot. haha.

Den as we went to the carpark Eu Kim had park, we saw this guy suddenly drive by and BANG into a curb, and sth from his car had fallen off.. geez… Heard that lots of young Australians have been getting into car accidents thats y they’re changing the rules abt getting a license. Luckily Hansy has got hers. Anyway he tried driving back into a car parking slot and almost hit the other, geezzzz…. mumsy’s kept lookin and laughing. haha.

So den Swan Valley is pretty big. Had some lunch, silly Hansy and her Indian curry.. “nice or not Hansy” haha..

Den went to the Chocolate Factory. It was havin a black out, haha. oh well. U cld also sample chocolates there. Hansy & Eu kim were on a tasting feast, i didnt reali like raw or shld i say pure chocolate so onli ate a bit. I prefer mine with additional things like nuts, fruits, caramel and so on. haha.

Den went nearby to a cheese tasting and wine tasting place. Wow the cheese was juz sooo creamy… i cldnt take it.. haha.. they loved it but i dunt like over creamy stuff so yah thats me. haha.. but the wine was pretty nice, didnt taste like wine. i guess this is the vineyard.

Ohhh i took a snap shot of the sky.. isn’t the clouds juz amazing to look at.

Oooo den we saw a Nougat shop.

Den drove on into, i tink its called Whiteman Park. There was a wildlife park, but we were too late and didnt want to spend on entry fee either. haha. So ended up juz strolling in the park.

Hansy also bought a drink for us, it’s brand is called BOOST.. YUMMMMMMMYYYY… it’s a smoothie+yogurt drink… SUPER SUPER oishi.. the taste is juz so amazingly strong unlike in Singapore where’s its quite diluted or juz too expensive.

Went to have some lunch first at the food court. We ate Japanese food. Edo Teppan. Damn damn damn OISHI… really really gd.. oh my god, i reali was enjoying every bite.

Went to Jay Jay and bought a two shirts for 10 Aussie bucks each, reali cheap. And also sth for Jensy.

Den went to Cotton On Body, i bought t-shirts for like 5 bucks onli.. geez…. this is reali wat we call SALE. Original price was abt $25 Aussie.. while some were at $35 plus… really a bargain man.
Also walked around here and there. Also went into Myer’s to get Hansy’s boots.

Den we went back coz we had to meet Qinying for dinner. By the time we got home, Qin had juz parked her car outside the house. She looked so gd. haha.. den headed to Fremantle for some fish and chips. They said “Cicerella” has the best fish and chips. But the sad thing is that, they dunt give u sauce, u have to buy the sauce.. wahhhh… onli salt and vinegar is free. eh?? not even ketchup. Got 2 sets of fish and chips and a squid set. It was nice but they really give u too much fries… too much… almost enuff to make u barf.

Qin has stayed in Perth for quite a while already. Time juz passes by nei, i knew her when we were in Primary 3, omg sia ahha.. we even shower in the same bath tub. haha. Ok that was not needed but.. haha.. Glad she’s doin ok after having gone through alot.

IT WAS FREEZINGGGGGGGGG… haha.. the weather was so cold. Well cold for me that is. 17 degrees. Big diff frm Singapore where everyday is HOT HOT HOT.

So den we decided to go grocery shopping coz Mumsy wanted to cook Thai food for Hansy. So we went nearby by bus to Kardinya Park where they have K mart (which i kept calling Walmart for some reason), Coles (which is a supermarket and also the Asian supermarket.. ermmm not reali supermarket but maybe i shld say Mama shop.

We went to have lunch first at Yoko’s Japanese food.. wahhh realiiiii oishiiiiiiiiiii desu yo…

Den went to the Asian supermarket, and den outside Coles there was like a mini cafe in which Mumsy had a cappuccino, and me and Hansy shared a passionfruit smoothie. IT WAS juz delicious. The taste is sooo gd.. nearly melted while drinking. We also had a cheese cake enuff to make u go weak in the knees.

Went to K mart which really really reminded me so much of Walmart in Oklahoma City. The structure was almost exactly the same. Hansy bought a heater (if not we’ll freeze) and a electric blanket.

Cute nei. haha. I haven seen one in a long time so ya well. haha

Den off to Coles for grocery shopping. Hansy also invited Rina-chan and Tetsu for dinner. So den mumsy was making dinner, suddenly we hear the dog howl. Den Hansy and her housemate Charlene went out to c the dog. The dob was juz not moving. He seemed to be breathing a little but den suddenly when they tried holding the dog’s head, it was juz limp.. EEEEHHHHHHHH????? Seriously i tot my heart was goin to drop, i have nv seen a dead dog…They were both calling the vet and asking for help. Calling frenz to drive them to Murdoch Uni to see the vet. Den Rina and Tetsu both came, so Rina went with Hansy and Charlene to the sch vet and leaving poor Tetsu with us. haha.. while mum was cooking, i tot that maybe we watch sth to pass the time, wat did i make him watch, Tokyo Friend Park 2 wif Arashi in it. HAHA… we were watching halfway when they came back, and yes the dog had died… seriously OMG man.. we didnt noe the reason as an autopsy cost like 300bucks.

So mumsy gathered all of us including Alina who had juz got home from work and eat together. Tom Yum soup, fried basil chicken and french beans. Mumsy’s cookin is stil yummy. haha.

Den Hansy, me, Rina-chan and Tetsu went into Hansy’s room to continue watching Arashi. HAHA.. and also we watched the Oodoriki SP (Arashi). It was pretty late by the time we were done. 12.30am or sth. Arashi juz makes ppl into addicts. haha. Rina and Tetsu are both reali nice ppl. Extreme fun to be with.

Me and Mumsy’s flight was at 9am.. geez… which means having to reach the airport at 7am.. woke up at 5.30am having onli slept for 3hrs… shucks.. felt kinda pukey already which is reali not a gd sign for me coz it means i’ll be pukey pukey on the plane.. oh crap.. haha…

Anyway boarded on Quantas. First time for me. Nice tv screen embeded in the seats in front of u. But i was juz so tired that i slept most of the time. But the service was amazing on Quantas. Also they served ice-cream, i didnt eat coz i was freezin already. haha.. The gd thing abt the watching tv on Quantas is that, u can pick any movies u wan to watch, u can even fast forward or anything. Thats reali gd coz u dunt have to miss any part of the movie when u go pee coz u cld pause it. Not like those planes that have onli tv screen on the wall or above u where if u miss sth den too bad.

I watched Golden Compass, dunno y but it wasnt that interesting for me. oh well. It takes 5 and half hrs to reach Perth, Australia frm Singapore. Long ride indeed. but the plane ride was super smooth and right on time.

Got down and HANSY THERE U ARE……… haha… she came wif her frenz Eu Kim and Rina to pick us up.. the air was kinda chilly. We stopped by Nandos, which is this Portuguese fast food chain where they serve chicken which is totally SPICY.. yummmm… haha…

Also since there was an empty room in Hansy’s house, we stayed there. There were 3 other ppl who live the house too, one who is the owner’s daughter had gone back to Singapore for hols, where another Charlene still was in Perth and Alina who’s working and taking her Masters in Perth.

Time for sisterly bonding nei.. haha.. ARASHI ARASHI FOR DREAM.. haha..
