so here's an update of what has been happening in my life today and yesterday.
navigated the whole family yest to Warringah Mall up in Warringah (duh.) pass North Sydney. since we don't really have a lot of family time together, we decided to do something together, hence the family mini-roadtrip up to warringah.
so vicki and i went on to go on a shopping trip, whilst mummy, daddy and tammy decided not to spend. made full use of the sales going on at general pants to get myself a military style trench for autumn/winter, and a splatter paint mickey mouse grey tee. both were more than 50% off their original prices so i'm pretty happy with those two catches ^^v *yeh!*
then i realised that i didn't get any of the items in my list of things that i wanted to shop for which were:
1) hat (fedora or paperboy)
so off i went looking for the abovementioned items. managed to score a grey vest with black piping at dotti just minutes before my dad ushered all of us back to the car to drive back home. i did find a black vest tapered tux vest in general pants but it wasn't on sale and was going for 79.95 so i had to give it up to the cheaper dotti one. but if i did have all the money in the world, the black would have won over the grey one, or i could just buy both ^^. ahah!
outside general pants
OMG the eyebags. T.T
an oops shot.
then us three sisters had a last night bunking in my room and these are some crazy random shots we decided to take in the middle of the night XD
ET PHONE HOMEE~ XD
so last night i sent out a last min invite to a few ppl to see if ppl were still willing to go catch a movie today in the city. funny how most of the guys replied and yet the girls were all almost MIA, save for jaja who incidentedly was invited by will before i was so my invite to her didn't count. so in fact all the girls didn't reply me! oh gg.
anywayy, we all decided to meet up at 11am in the city so off i went. met gary (fiona's brother) on the way to uni so i just sat beside him on the train to the city. didn't really talk much to him cos he looked so busy with all his paperwork for his business council minutes and programs to run during UTS's O-week. he got off at central while i got off at townhall as planned. then i waited around at the station then i decided to make my way to kino to grab a copy of the recent ed of seventeen jp mag. on my way up, zenan called and i told him to meet me in kino if he does make his way to townhall since he had prior arrangements in the morning.
got my mag and made my way back to townhall to wait for a little, and when no one showed and will didn't pick up his phone i decided to walk to george st cinemas. got to the cinemas and two groups of people just sitting at easyway chimed "Hey Justina!" aww i feel loved~ ^^. ahah! was a pretty funny sight, a stranger would have at first thought that they were two seperate groups; jaja, khalil and aaron seated on one table, and bosco and gary on another table just back to back to jaja's table. XD anywayy, we just sat around waiting for ppl to arrive, will, zenan, stuart, geoff and tseann. great. 3 girls + 8 guys -.- but in the end it still worked out alright.
bosco and gary decided to surprise zenan since zenan was apparently "dogging us". XP so when i recieved the call that zenan and stuart were on their way from townhall, bosco and gary hid out at a table in hungry jacks and spied. it was pretty funny, bosco and gary once walked all the way to zenan's back and then turned away just as he (zenan) turned around. XD they then took a seat just behind our table and zenan was like "...wait a-..isn't that-?". bosco then turns around and was like "HEY~! XD" ahahh!
we caught the 12 noon screening of juno and took up an entire row. movie was pretty alright. juno's just a weird character... hmm.
after the movie, the group split up a little, bosco, gary and geoff decided to take a trip to city hunter for a little and aaron had to rush to uni to settle some stuff. the rest of us went off to pepper lunch to have lunch. poor stuart, nearly died from hunger just watching the movie (since he skipped breakfast just to make it to campsie with zenan this morning). shared a double salmon steak with tseann for lunch and then we decided to go to passionflower for ice cream! got to passionflower in capitol and ordered a mission impossible, 13 scoops of ice cream balanced precariously over three waffle baskets with three shot glasses of liquid toppings (chocolate, passionfruit pulp and strawberry).
that's khalil with the dish that the 7 of us shared. XD
so we plowed through the whole thing, and i missed two calls from bosco. XD oops. ahah! bosco and geoff joined us after getting through to zenan, and aaron returned too after his uni thing and met us at passionflower. we sat around and chatted for a while. after paying up we decided to do k at k-squared (k2). i must say that k2's decreased in standard after big echo and greenbox plus. don't think i'll be going back anytime soon. greenbox plus for me! but then again, big echo's got the most song choice... hmm...
after 2 hours (and may i note, not a single asian song in sight. which was a bummer since i really wanted to do an asian song. unleash the fob in me XD. but for the greater good of the group who i know don't really like asian songs.) of singing, we decided to all head home, since i did promise granny i'll come back for dinner. so will, jaja, khalil, aaron, zenan, stuart and i headed in the direction of central while bosco and geoff decided to stay around in the city for a bit more.
some random shizz on will's back. think it was gum. ewww.
we said goodbye to aaron at the central busstops and khalil at the station since he was headed towards blacktown. the rest of us walked down to the southbound trains. met xixi at the platforms! since it was peakhour, all of us were stuck standing at the doors and banging shoulders whenever the train jerked suddenly. at one point in time, the guys and jaja started talking about bball and xixi and i were like "...*nods and smile*" and xixi went "SO JUSTINA, have you caught the new season of Gossip Girl?" ahah!
will, stuart and jaja got off at hurstville, xixi at penhurst and lastly zenan at mortdale "a half hour walk back home~ T.T in this stuffy weather. GAH" ahah! ^^ poor zenan. and i got off at miranda and walked back home.

pictures of the day,
Parklea Markets, some stall in it selling designer pet clothes and bags and whatnot. this little fella was out in the front with a few other puppies. he's a tea cup chihuahua, a blue and tan version. his face was smaller than my palm and i could prob easily fit him into my cupped hands. XD totemo MOE~~!!!
//Saturday, January 26, 2008 12:58 am
so i woke up early to go catch a train down to central. had to do my student id today, i have been putting it off for too long already. XD caught a 10am-ish train down to central, and called andric once i was at central to tell him i was on my way. big crowds at central today due to Big Day Out and a soccer match between Sydney FC and Queensland i think.
caught 393 into kensington and dropped off at unsw. took me a total of nearly 2 hours to get to uni. (on a seperate note, my daddy fixed my old Franck Muller watch! XD so happy to use it again) approx the same amount of travel time, but i much prefer this ride into uni, since there's more ppl, instead of being one of 10 ppl in the one train carriage, and more urban scenery rather than national park land (which can get pretty repetitive after a year of watching it go pass). andric texted me on the way to say that he'll be a little late since he was delivering stuff to somewhere in uni. so i loitered around the red center building and the center walkway till andric came by with a tennis ball he happened to pick up somewhere in uni. XP
we made our way to mathews building since there was where i was supposed to get my id at. since mathews was at upper campus and we were at lower, we made our way up the steps to the upper campus. you know, i have a nasty feeling i'm gonna hate those stairs. XD unless i manage to catch 895 i think, that goes to high st and alights at upper campus. and andric, i love your dunks XD ahahah! *distracts him and runs off with his dunks*
so along the way, andric showed me the buildings in unsw, think i'll be spending more time in upper campus with my lectures and tutes mainly, but i have some labs in the chemistry building in lower campus.
i got my id and we proceeded to walk around unsw for a bit more then i got hungry. i ran out of house with only a cup of coffee this morning so i was running on an empty stomach. so we took a walk around kensington, with andric showing me what's good and cheap to eat around there. in the end, i just settled on maccas since it was fast and i didn't really want to make andric sit around and watch me eat. XD though he did for a bit. ahah! after lunch i decided to make it back to the south to meet up with my mom and sisters who were doing back to school shopping. so i said goodbye to andric and he went back to work while i caught a 395 back to central.
i seriously couldn't stand the Big Day Out crowd. no offence but like, you wanna get drunk, get drunk somewhere else. it's public property you're defacing there. and just the fact that no one stops it. -_-"
so i took a train to hurst and met up with mom and sisters. walked around looking at nintendo ds lites and games, tried on hats in various shops (i want a fedora!), sunnies too, bought bubbletea, and i also bought a new piece of metal for my upper ear piercing. reminiscent of my old silver curl, which i lost one side of the ball bearing ends holding it together. the new one is like rainbowed-metal and has spikes as its ends.
got back from hurst and only had around an hour and a bit to spare. so i just went online for a bit to register my unimail, and print out more CNY banquet menus for my parents. i left the house at around 4.25pm to catch a train at 4.44 with shirley. fiona called me while i was in hurst to say she was backing out of the trip since she had been working the whole day and was pretty tired and with a sore arm from the cervical cancer vaccine. so shirley and i caught up a whole lot whilst on the way to central since i haven't seen her since like mid december? a longgg time. 6 weeks thereabouts. so loads of things to talk about. XD made a little call to danni to see if she was alright since she was at home not feeling good, and even the docs were baffled as to what's troubling her. get well soon darl! or we're coming to your place and bringing loads of dvds and blankets.
got to central and walked to market city to meet andy and will. decided to try out poporo's for the first time. pretty cool place i must say! i really liked it, reminder me a little of mos burger and carona's chicken back home in sg. and all japanese staff! one day i will converse to them in japanese. ONE DAY. and also to the staff at kazuki's in hurst (i have asked for a bottle of ramune before in total japanese before though XD) and that japanese place in surry hills that 393 passes! i totally forgot its name, but the food there's authentic. and good. and cheap. XD
during dinner i called simon and asked where he was and i was told that he was at home. and had just got back. then i thought abt it, since we were already starting on dinner, and it was just gonna be k after, he wouldn't like it, knowing simon. XD so he also bailed out, leaving just me, lee, will and andy. which was still cool, since we had a good time talking.
oh and best of all, we decided on CEO to try out. since it was new and supposedly the best new k place in sydney. and we started walking to 1 dixon st. found 1 dixon st to be this new building with a few stores looking pretty fresh. all retail, no karaoke place in sight, so lee started asking around and enquiring abt the new CEO. some guy in a game store said he didn't know, but it could most prob be in the basement, so we made our way to the basement, to find a whole lotta "For Lease" sign boards on the display windows. one security guard was manning some cleaning machine on that floor so lee went up and asked him where CEO was. "erm, sorry miss, but you're looking at it. CEO isn't up yet, it's still under renovations."
anywayy, we decided after to go to another k place nearby. greenbox plus! sang for around 2 hours, just more asian, and some "engo" (lol to jacqui and zenan talk) and to finish it off, some oldies shared by me and andy. how can no one appreciate Seals & Croft's Summer Breeze? or The Stylistic's You Make Me Feel Brand New? pfft. your daddies didn't teach you well on the good music of their time.
lyvia and her friend perry(?) came sometime near the end of our two hour session and sang a bit before bading goodbye since the two of them just ended a long shift at valleygirl and they still had work tmr morning. the original group of will, andy, me and lee decided to walk to capitol to see if passionflower had space for us. obviously not since it was sooo popular. so we adjourned to the toy machines up on the second level to try our luck. my luck is seriously down today, no catches at all! then again i was prob thinking too much, i usually find myself grabbing a toy only when i don't think abt it. so after abt 5 dollars down the drain without a catch i decided to barr myself before i totally gamble it all off. andy however caught a fererro rocher thingo that played a recorded msg, and he was nice enough to give it to us girls. ^^
oh and i met alice! my japanese class friend in uow last year. turns out that she transfered out of w'gong too! XD she's gonna go to usyd this year while i'm in unsw. sucked in w'gong. PUAHHAA. she was just out with her friend tonight.
after that we decided to try passionflower again, since the crowd dissapated a little. and we got a seat, and had a difficult time deciding on what to have. in the end we all decided to share a big 6 scoops of ice cream thing with fruits. i have a real expansive list of vocab eh. ahah XD! sat there eating ice cream, comparing palms and getting it read by andy, who was so eerily right about personalities and all that. pretty cool stuff eh. ahah! and will and andy were trying to figure out what sign i was, which was tough since i totally don't act like my sign. XD then the ghost stories started coming out. O.O i sat there just going omgomgomgomg... cos i'm a sucker for horror. i'm such a chicken. that's why i hate ghost houses at theme parks, cos i just lose it. XD
at around 10 we decided to leave before lee's and my parents start yelling down the phone at us. so we made our way to central where we went seperate ways with andy, he's up near auburn. will, lee and i caught the southbound train.
reached miranda at around 11.50 and daddy was waiting.

so anywayy, i'm off to start printing docs for tmr's enrolment what not. ^^
//Tuesday, January 22, 2008 11:22 pm

XD lol i love kids.
anyway, hi everyone. it's been a while. the friday bbq, just refer to will's blog. i'm too lazy to go type everything out. XD

anyway i'm off to catch my coffee prince. :)
//Sunday, January 20, 2008 12:19 am
sooo i haven't been updating much XD much apologies.
so after that bowling day. i worked a bit and then i had a day of ice skating! note that i have not ice skated before that day we went out to ice skate. and the last time i was on a pair of skates (albeit a pair of rollerblades) was like in year 10, a good 3 years ago. ><
so yea, tuesday morning. trained it up to hurst with fiona and will and met up with aaron. the four of us were getting a lift from simon to canterbury. along the way we got lost and the map got passed from original navigator will (obv sacked XD) to aaron, then to me. in the end i got the car load of ppl to canterbury ice rink! XD all thanks to navigating the whole family to various places in the south coast during chrissie.
got there like an hour early and we decided to relive our childhoods by running to the nearby playground. i love the swing. ^^ more ppl started arriving, jaja and khalil, jaja's little brother james, winnie, tseann, bob, alice, victor and more that i totally didn't catch names. XD sorry!
after playing around the playground for a bit, we decided to head in to the rink. andric and nelson had already gotten into the rink and were trying out their skates on the fresh ice. after paying with fee, we then went and got our skates. now ready for loads of stacks.
got onto the ice and was clinging onto the sides for the first time. various ppl came along to teach me how to skate; lynette, fiona, alice amongst a lot of others. thank you guys! for holding my unsteady hand (when you knew you could have easily fallen due to my lack of coordination) and for teaching me how to skate essentially. :)) love much to you guys!! and sorry to mary for pulling you down with me when i fell in the lineup.
as the ice started melting, skating got a little more difficult and i gave up trying to manouveur around the massive puddles developing around the edges. sat down in the stands watching james, sammy and daniel playing a ds. sammy and daniel are hailey's younger sister and brother respectively. ^^ gotta say that victor, aaron, simon, hailey, lynette, sammy are just amazing on the ice.
after just chilling at the stands for a bit, we all decided to return our skates and head out for a little picnic and bball for the guys. cathy and ed were waiting outside cos they arrived late and didn't wanna pay to go in and skate for just a little and then have to come out for lunch.
gangsta wannabe punks challenged our guys to a match. LOL we whooped their scrawny asses. it's pretty sad you know. kids like them not having a proper goal in life, cept for probably emulating their dai gors in gangs and the likes. they left soon after and we got possession of the court again.
and then they had to drag me to play a game of bball with them. -_-" i have to say, that i wasn't much of a help of my team. it was thanks to victor and will that scored most of the team's goals. jaja, khalil and i were just there for the fun of it. and omg, simon, didn't know he had it in him XD ahahah! "SIMON!" and the ball flies through the hoop. o.o
so after our game, we decided to crash victor's place since it was the nearest to the ice rink. only managed to stay for about 15 minutes before i had to say goodbye to everyone since i was slotted in to cook dinner that night.
the whole way back home, not much talking went on, cos will, fiona and i were just smashed. dropped fee off first, then will and i at my place. will had parked his car previously at my place before walking to the station.
wednesday night! went off to two events happening in the city after work at the dentist; allison and fee's bowling + lasertag + pancakes on the rocks day out and mary's farewell dinner. decided to go to allison and fee's dinner, cos that was all that i could make it with my work in the day. had pancakes on the rocks at darling harbour and shared it with a whole bunch of ppl. met up with tseann, lawrence, sean, matt, lyvia, fee, allison, hiyori, jack, martin, rick, and a whole lot of ppl i didn't catch names of. SORRY AGAIN! XD
after dinner, we caught some smexylove between rick and his friend (whom i'm sooo sorry for totally forgoting their name!! ><) on camera at the darling harbour spiral fountain. after that, we proceeded to walk toward the station to catch the train home. stopped by mary's farewell dinner (happening at fullhouse) to say hi to her and to grab will. stayed for a bit and watched the group play a chicken game. will demostrate if you are willing to ask me after reading this much of my junk, XD. anywayy, allison and the rest of the group said they'll wait for us for about half an hour and we were suppose to catch the train back together afterwards. so after half an hour at mary's we said our goodbyes and proceeded to walk to townhall station.
met up with allison and the rest of the southies and got on the train. chatted with will on the train and we got off at hurst, since will was nice enough to drive me home with fee and allison.
after dropping allison off home, fee was next, then i.
thursday was a full day of work. and friday i went to simon's bbq~
managed to get vicki to come with me and we caught a 10.30 train at miranda to meet will at hurst. he called halfway to say he was gonna be late so we got off hurst and watch two trains pass by before he came. -_-" anywayy, we got to redfern and got off to change to the north lines.
the weather didn't look too good. and it started pouring when we were in the train and passed north strathfield. great planning simon! got to concord west and called up simon and he picked us up and drove us to the bbq area. which wasn't that far away really.
omg i'm sooo dead. bbq recall will have to come tmr or something. sorry will!! i'm just real tired. =_= after all those late night screening of coffee prince along with the early wake ups for work = a real dead Justina.
//Saturday, January 12, 2008 11:27 pm
alrighteyy. so i guess i totally shirked a little of my responsibilities to the family (ie working on time). gotta remember to be mindful of that.
yesterday bowling. man my lower back's aching from the lack of use in that area for quite a bit. don't really feel like going much into it. -_-" too much typing. plus i'm tired. blah. interesting stuff. tammy got chatted up to by some random as we were walking to capitol from darling. will totally dissed us singaporeans and we were having a singaporean swearing match over karaoke microphones, us three sg sisters against the one will. "WAH LAN" "KNNCCB" "LIEWW~~" and the likes.
When all the love feels gone-JT "take it from here"
just loving that song. so sweet. ♥
thanks to mary for burning me coffee prince! just that the only way i can view it is on my computer. XD
thurs was my dad's bday. and i woke up late XD and i didn't feel like running off to beach to any one of the invites that i received through the week, then having to come back and cook dinner for the sisters and gran. XP i tried nasi biryani on thurs. OMG spiciness. tooo much! went a little too heavy on the spice. ahaha! but it turned out alright. and also i burnt the rice on the bottom of the pot. had to fully scrub out the black bits. heheh!
now i've got to figure out something for this tuesday. my turn to cook again. hmm. any suggestions?
i'll leave you guys with a montage of photos from the various events that happened so far. enjoy!
from top L to R: forbidden love XD simon and tim / fireworks on nye07 / fireworks just under the sydney harbour bridge nye07 / boxing day outing, capitols taken with mary, lynette and will / 26thdec07, mary lynette and monster will / jervis bay roadtrip with family during christmas break, the ladies / the sandcastle! / me and pikachu.

yesterday's K session on film. XD
// 12:31 am
just a quick update before i head off to sleep for work tmr morning.
today! went out bowling with a whole bunch of friends and brought along tammy and vicki so they wouldn't have to be stuck at home the whole day watching tvb serials or movies allllll day. on their asses, not moving. XD
so i did plan on waking up early to get to unsw this morning to go get my student id done. but i dozed through a few snooze calls on my mobile's wake up calls. in the end i woke up on 3rd or 4th call, and was sufficiently shocked. the train i was supposed to catch was a 8.11am, the snooze call i woke up on read "8.09am" SHIT~. woke up with a start, and proceeded to kick vicki up "WAKE UP DAMMIT, it's like 8.10am". vicki:"oh no shit."snooze... -_-"
in the end i weighed up my choices and decided that rushing to unsw wouldn't be worth it. so just told tammy and vicki to take it slow and just catch the 10.37 train instead.
i might update a bit more tmr. cos i really need the sleep. =_= totemo nemui desu yo~
//Sunday, January 06, 2008 5:16 pm
just caught the J League match that happened sometime before New Year's between Sanfrecce Hiroshima and Kashima Antlers. ♥ much to Uchida Atsuto (KAS) and the Morisaki twins (SAN).
Kazuyuki "Kazu" Morisaki
love Atsuto muchh~ and out of the twins i think i prefer Koji more than Kazu, XD and while the Morisaki twins are 26, Uchida's only 19.
so there, i'm not totally out of the sports scene yet. ahahah!
anyway, here's an update of what's been happening around my life.
friday jacqui invited me out to cronulla just to soak up some sun. took a train down with steph after meeting her at miranda train station. got to cronulla and walked to maccas where we were meeting. met up with jacqui after grabbing some brekkie at maccas, and we sat and waited for the rest. soon sally came by and winston too. i really applaud winston for his bravery; coming all the way to cronulla and not knowing a single person (he was a friend of zenan's friend, so zenan basically didn't even know him). jacqui called up zenan at around 10.30am (we said to meet at 10am) and woke him up. -_-" lostie. so after sitting around in a really cold maccas for a bit just getting to know winston a little, we decided to just walk around cronulla for a bit.
we decided to take a trip to the dollar shop and buy some sandcastle equipment as well as other stuff like waterguns and waterbombs. after getting them, jacqui decided to call zenan again to find out where he was. managed to catch him at around 11am-ish and we headed down to the beach to find a spot. got to a spot and sally and jacqui decided to go down to the pools for a swim. i didn't bring my swimmers thinking the weather's gonna be crap that day. >< but they still managed to pull me into the water. so i managed to get my bottom half soaked. steph had to work later in the day so she couldn't really get wet. the sand at cronulla wasn't really all that good to build sandcastles in so we just mucked around pretty much. the surf was sooo big!
after an hour or so at the sand, we decided to just find a spot in the park to play a match of soccer; zenan had brought a soccer ball with him. talk abt me being an idiot, got whacked in the chest with a soccer ball (thanks sally. ahah! still love you!), tripped over the ball while trying to tackle it from someone and splitting my thongs -_-" ahah, but all good fun. we had to say goodbye to winston and steph at around 1.20pm cos they had to make it home for lunch (winston) and work (steph). so after that jacqui, sally, zenan and i decided to get lunch from nulla nulla. since i split my thongs i had to walk barefooted to a surf shop. i dunno how those guys do it but the pavement burns! sooo hot!! was so glad when we finally made it to a surf shop.
but i had another problem after that, a splinter in my second toe on the right foot. T_T i'm all good now though. managed to get it all out after much tears and tweezering. OUCH.
anyway, back to lunch at nulla nulla. omg, so scary, we got to nulla nulla and decided on a table. this table just happened to be on the edge of a little step in the restaurant and when sally took her seat, her chair toppled backwards and off the step! good thing she didn't sustain any major injuries, just a really sore bum after that. scary. zenan and jacqui shared a serve of nachos between them and sally got a fruit salad while i got wedges. after finishing our lunches, we decided to make a trip to cold rock but only jacqui and i got icecreams. cookies and cream with extra oreo cookies. yumm~
after strolling along cronulla eating our icecreams, we decided to head to miranda just for the fun of it. so we walked back to sally's car and found a ticket! omg we were so pissed for her cos she was pretty sure she wasn't in a 2 hour parking zone (they had recently just changed the zoning in that carpark). so after fuming for a little, we brought zenan around cronulla, saw de la, olmc and de la caringbah. drove by sally's place cos we initially wanted to crash at her place if her parents were around since she forgot her keys. but they weren't so we then drove all the way to miranda instead.
drove by my place and i got a change of clothes since i was still in a pair of soggy shorts. parked in miranda and just walked around for a bit randomly strolling into shops to check out stuff. sally decided to get a trim while jacqui, zenan and i went to get myself a bailey's bday set for justin. zenan called up and asked where his friend solon and amar were. he had previously told them to go to cronulla to meet up with us, but we got bored waiting and drove off to miranda instead. XD met up danni on her break accidentedly but she had to rush off to make it back to work. we met up with solon and amar and they hadn't had lunch so we walked back to the foodcourt and left them there while jacqui, zenan and i went to say hi to steph.
sat around the foodcourt for a bit more before jacqui said she had to rush home at around 4.15pm cos she was expecting guests and sally decided to also go. since zenan and i left our stuff in her car we followed her back and grab our stuff before we said goodbye to sally. decided to help zenan choose a bday present for his dad. so we just walked around miranda, zenan, solon, amar and i, looking at fishing gear, clothes and all guy stuff. in the end the shops started closing and we decided to leave. solon gave me a lift back home on his way back to hurst.
ohohoh and i got my Letter of Offer from UNSW. happyhappy! *estatic* ^^

last night was a blast. XD
day started out late, slept in and woke up around 10am. vicki had friends over to watch Beneath. watched them as they played GH3 after the movie. around 3pm-ish, i rummaged around for some movies and found Epic Movie. XD had to drag myself away at around 5pm from the tv to get ready for the NYE celebration.
caught the 5.50pm train into the city. train was packed! so many nicely dressed ppl, i felt sufficiently underdressed for the occasion with my skinnys+black singlet+gold throwover getup. >< got off at townhall and after some calls to simon et al, managed to meet up with them at the st andrews cathedral. met szabo, mankey, yak, khalil and miffy for the first time. tim i've met before. XD
called will sometime during then and he said to come by yutaka to say hi to everyone. so me and simon trouped off while the rest of the group stayed around st andrews. liased with will's group of nelson's bday party ppl and ours and we decided to join up to watch the fireworks and move together, since on a day like last night, it would be best to travel in a big group.
after that, i decided to grab some food to last me the night and went off to maccas with simon while he called the rest to meet us up at maccas. got my food and we started walking to hyde. parked ourselves on the steps of the war memorial and i ate while chatting with simon, tim, khalil. it took me a while to realise, but did you know, those aren't birds flying around the trees at hyde park during the evening. they're BATS. O.O amused me for a bit there. ahaha!
whilst waiting at the memorial for two other girls joining the group, will called and said his group had finished with dinner and were heading to darling harbour to watch the 9pm fireworks and were wondering if we were heading there yet. as the girls were still mia, we told them to go on ahead first and we'll call when we were there. after waiting for a bit more, kat and wendy came and we met up with them at townhall and we proceeded to darling from there.
upon reaching darling, we called will to ask about his whereabouts
and we met up on pyrmont bridge. met up with nelson, muli, lun, henry, tseann, jaja and her little bro james, andric, aaron, will and jan and her bf matt. there were others also in the group but i wasn't introduced to them so i have no idea who they were sorry! >< james was a firecracker! ahaha! since he's little he's at the perfect height for causing damage to the guys~ ahahah! XD met zoe and simon at the bridge too. :)) lun and i shared a moment when we were stuck behind the taller ppl and were like, wth, we've been standing on our tiptoes and seeing only a bit of the fireworks. ahaha! caught a whole lot on my cameraphone. pics are up on facebook!
after the 9pm fireworks, we then decided again on where to catch the 12 midnight fireworks. some said bluespoint, some said circular, but in the end, we all decided on milson's point. the group split up again, simon et al incl me heading to maccas to fill up on some food, while the others had a head start in grabbing prime spots on milson's.
met up with stephie outside maccas. she was there to party with her crew. XP hardcore much! ahah! after much eating, we finished up and started to head to milson's. caught the north shore trains from townhall and alighted at milson's. milson's was PACKED. after calling and trying to get coordinates of will's group, we started heading in that direction. but due to the mass we just couldn't squeeze our way through to their side of the bridge, so in the end, we just headed over to the other side. view was still alright. :) managed to watch the fireworks display and just revel in the happiness.
got a call from stan halfway through the display and wished him a very happy new year!! tipsy drunk. ahah XD after the display, we had to call will's group again to meet up. met up and took some photos again! then we started walking toward milson's point station but seriously. it was like, unless you have wings and is as tiny as a fly then you'll make it to the station. there was a sea of ppl for 500 metres or more from the entrance. we decided to then just scale the bridge on foot to the other side of sydney.
i clung onto simon so bad cos i didn't want to seperate from the group in the sea of ppl which was sooo big. and add to that, there were these men who were either too drunk to even coherantly carry a conversation, or were some foreigners speaking a foreign language. O.O weirdoes..
met victor and his bunch of friends on the bridge. took a leisurely stroll on the bridge, ahaha. and everyone thought simon was drunk off his face. ahah! XD
got off on the other side and re-grouped. we , simon et al, decided to head off to catch the bus to szabo's place to chill. just realised we walked from milson's point all the way to hyde park. phwoar.
took the bus and got to szabo's place at around 4am-ish. got to see the Sydney Boys Year 12 2006 year portrait hanging on szabo's wall. i was just looking through the faces to see who i knew. XD simon helped me along the way. ahaha!
mankey made some espresso for simon, himself and i. and we sat down to learn how to play poker. played a few rounds till i lost all my cash. ahaha! some others played simon's GH3. after finishing our coffees simon and i decided to make our way home. said our goodbyes and started on our way to hurst; simon wanted to change his cars.
simon managed to get me home at around 5.30am. saw the sunrise when i got back home. perfect beginning to a year.
anyway, HAPPY 2008 EVERYONE! ^^
