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.
