Where to start, I want to say so much but I really have no words to describe this awesome, handsome, adorable, sexy, cute, flawless human being. I wish you all the best Joonie. May your wishes come true and please never lose your beautiful smile! <3
Went to a ‘pent’ outing! I shall dotpoint :)
- Caught bus w/ Mly in the morning. Nancy texted me and thought she was lost but YOLO cos she thought she ‘got this’.
- Met up with the other ‘pent’ members and I decided to get a height check. Discussed heights and obviously one of us was delusional to think we were the same height.
- Ate at Madtongsan! “CAN I GET 5 NUMBER 32’s?!” LOOOOOOL AS IF THOUGH. I got my usual. Someone was being a freak and kept trying to call over the waiter in the weirdest of ways. “WAITER?! HELLOOOOOO?!”
- P1: Oh look at my chicken pieces
P2: When mine comes out lets count them, and if you get more we can sue them
*P3 gets their pork last* P2: SHE GOT MORE PORK LETS SUE THEM
- I think we talked about who will stay together after school? & where we would sit next year or something.
After lunch we went to Karaoke and had some fun singing as usual! Omfg. Total highlight when we said we saw ‘Tri’ on the screen, when really, it was Kim Jong Kook and he was doing the lamest dance moves ever that we couldn’t resist mimicking! There were 1 or 2 songs where we got up and broke out our lame ass dance moves.
Decided to go back to P1’s house afterwards minus P2 and as we were walking past these shops this viet man said something to Nancy and she was like.. what?! Got there and mainly talked about formal. Mly’s sister (Sandy) picked us up and her friend Chrissy was also in the car. We drove past this house where there were supposed ‘cute’ guys and Chrissy was all like “Hi!~~~” LOL. Then we drove past again but this time with louder music and omg LOOOOOOOOL SHE SAID HI AGAIN AND THIS TIME THEY WERE ALL STANDING OUTSIDE smiling!
Went book shopping with my lovelies Mly & Hellen! Woke up in the morning feeling quite tired so we decided to go an hour later. Bus ride was nice. Spent some time flicking texts back & forth to Hellen.
Once we got off the bus Hellen told us about these guys that apparently didn’t know where they were going. They thought there was a stop after the city LOL. We walked past this girl who was fully licking the icecream out of her cup when clearly, she had a spoon in her hand. Examined her, looked at Hellen, we both laughed, and then she called me sad haha.
Walked over to typo so that them two could look for pencil cases, which failed, so we went to sports girl and had a nice browse in there. They chose their pencil cases very carefully. Mly fully opposed any traces of pink on hers whilst Hellen wanted something that ‘stood out’, both of them are freaks.
Headed to office works and on the way as we walked past that smelly garage thing, this guy walked past us and said something along the lines of “LG’s” to his friends. Then I was like ‘well excuse me you old man’ just as an old man appeared in front of us. Smooth moves.
Spotted a 1D usb as we walked into the store and Hellen’s words: “Does Lily have this?!” Went around sort of separately to look for our stuff and Hellen kept nagging me about the stuff she uses and how only cool people could use them. Yeah, whatever. Mly was done before me & we also bumped into Tram! Choosing the right books are so hard. The price was cheaper than expected.
Afterwards we finally got hungry so I grabbed starbucks and naively ordered an iced americano (because I’d seen people order it a lot in movies) but to my horror it is so damn bitter LOL. Settled to eat at Jackpot. Ordered, chatted heaps, got our food, ate, then chatted a crap load more. We stayed there for like idk an hour & a half it felt like LOL discussing things that mostly revolved around Vietnam. It started with Hellen’s viet problems such as viet school then went onto boat people (refugees), and how Viets eat so many animals + shared the ones we’ve eaten.
Sorry Hellen don’t kill me. You look fabtastic (Can this be my word?)
Decided to go watch ‘This is 40’ at tops and what can I say. It’s a hilarious movie. Definitely recommend you to watch it if you don’t mind some crudeness. I was like ‘be prepared for sex scenes guys’… nek minnit movie starts first thing you see is a sex scene. Mly was like “ALREADY?! ARE YOU SERIOUS?!” yeah, I quite enjoyed the film. Mly was going crazy and being her usual cinema self making remarks and laughing over the due time because she couldn’t get over some scenes, which made the people behind us laugh. Oh and the cinema room we were in was so big. Like, the screen was the biggest one I’ve seen LOL.
On the bus we stupidly decided to sit in the back row… these annoying people sat infront of us, but they didn’t turn out to pose such a hindrance as when this foul alcohol smelling aboriginal man made his way to sit in our back corner after I’d hoped he wouldn’t. He insisted on asking for a hi 5 from Hellen, and throughout the whole ride it was so uncomfortable. I could see from the corner of my eye that he was staring at us… felt sorry for Hellen because he asked her for the time and had random swearing outbursts. I told her to move so she did. At Oxley, this asian guy was getting off but the go card machine was lagging & he was yelling to the guy “IF YOU’RE GONNA GET OFF THE BUS F-ING DO IT, DON’T STAND THERE LIKE AN F-ING IDIOT” I was so scared omg… thank goodness it was my stop soon and I like ran off. Mly & Hellen ended up getting off with him at Inala LOL. What a day.
Hello. So as for the 2 weeks I spent in Melbourne, I can only say that it was a really enjoyable time, as per every year that I go.
Although I didn’t go out as much as I would’ve liked there were numerous things that made my time great! I will dotpoint them.
- Getting to spend time with my mum and family of course! Talks and things we would joke about just was nice!
- Sleeping at unearthly hours of the morning. It was so much better because the whole household functioned like this.
- EATING. OH MY GOSH. I snacked so much and all the food in Melbourne just seemed to taste so much better, especially because I got to eat lots of vietnamese food like… more rice LOL. Also had these rice paper rolls that I love.
- To elaborate on the food, eating at late night hours like 12am and onwards was so good because food tasted so much better!
- The fact that it didn’t get dark until 9pm was such a bonus.
- Catching a train everywhere!
- Seeing how different the area I lived in was. There was so much construction and there are shops everywhere now.
- I went late night shoppy at broady once, just thought I’d add that in there.
- Skyping with losers/playing omgpop was fun.
- Seeing my bestfriend on 4 occasions and also catching up with Mylinh
- Watching the intense tennis matches!
- Playing with Kiara (cousin’s dog), who was amazing at soccer, and also playing soccer with my mum :)
So yes, that’s just a bunch of stuff I enjoyed on my trip! Sure as heck didn’t feel like 2 weeks. Time just goes by so fast.
18th: Went out w/ Anjelina & then Mylinh. Will be on bs when I am motivated.
Hi guys! So Saturday was my last day in Melbourne and I decided to spend my last moments with Anjelina at none other than mh, how awesome LOL. We both woke up in the morning and delayed our meeting for an hour because we were sleep deprived and once I got ready I walked (a way which I thought would be quicker) to the park near her house, but turns out I missed the shortcut so it wasn’t really that shorter. Do I make sense? No? Ok. Decided to wear a hoodie and jeans cos I thought it was cold but it actually wasn’t that cold, lolz. Arrived to her park after like 15/20 minutes and sat at this gross table waiting for her.
She was 30 minutes late because she had a dilemma at home that freak so I sat at this table playing with my phone/trying not to look pedo/ enjoying the nice breeze against my face!
When she arrived, she declared that she brought along snackpacks! I haven’t seen those since primary days! But like, she didn’t bring spoons so she was pretty devo about not being able to share it with me haha. Chatted for a bit then ran to the swings where we just chilled and watched a situation unfold with this little like 8? yr old girl and her “friends” HAHAHA.
Then we talked about how we should’ve went to mh shops to get something to eat so I was like hey, leggo! After all I did bring $10 cos I was prepared for this :D Anyway, I wanted to take the bus but she wouldn’t let so we walked there and I was complaining “If the bus gets there before us I get to punch you.” She tried to offload her snackpacks on me that loser!
We got to the shops in like 5 minutes as the bus passed us and the first thing we did was talk about halal meats and reminisce our primary school days how we’d grab a hot dog after HAHAHAHHA. Went inside and laughed at a shop called best choice which brings back a lot of memories. As we walked inside she was like “Do you think the owner still remembers us?” because we used to just stand infront of the store and literally laugh at it LOL but I was like, nah! Browsed around for the fun of it and then went to IGA where I got powerade and a bag for her to put her snack packs in.
As we were walking, she was like “OMG DO YOU REMEMBER THE GUY WHO BOUGHT YOUR KK PRESENT?!” and I was like “WHAT, WHERE?!” nek minnit look over and see a guy from primary we haven’t seen for years. I wanted to say hi but she demanded we run away haha.
Got to the takeaway shop, ordered chips and gravy and ate it with tooth picks cos we were gangsters. Talked about year 12, what we were most looking forward to/worried about, and familial affairs! It was nice to just sit, eat and chat.
Then my bus was almost coming so we walked over to the bus stop and waited for the driver to finish his smoke. Said our typical goodbyes/hugged and as I went past her on the bus I gave her one last silly face :)
Got home, packed away all my stuff, then spent the remainder of my like 40 minutes there watching tennis! Then time really flew so I said goodbye to my cousin and then my mum & aunty drove me to the airport. Definitely realised we left too late when my little cousin called me multiple times to warn me check in was closing… so lucky that we live like 10 minutes away from the airport. Hugged mum, grabbed my luggage and ran straight to check-in once I arrived and I JUST made it in time. My life reduced by 10 years. My little cousin said goodbye to her side of the family & we went to our departure gate. Chatted and caught up with her then walked to the plane. Plane ride seemed to go quicker this time round because I was occupied with better music and decided to play games this time.
As our plane was set to descend, well, before it, the plane experienced some turbulence and my stomach was seriously bouncing up and down inside of me LOL that was the first time I had experienced that much turbulence that made me feel unsettled! There was quite a bit so the captain advised everyone to get back to their seats. During that whole period all that was going through my mind was… “WE HIT TURBULENCE DUNDUNDUNDUDNUDNUDNDUNDUNDUDNUDNUDNDUDND” & if yous don’t know it’s a song by steve aoki and laidback luke if I’m remembering right.
Landed and headed to the terminal where I got chips and water for my cousin and I then waited ages for the bag carousel to start. Amazingly, ours were the first to come out so after the collection we went to the taxi rank (because my aunty was busy at home) and the taxi driver was quite nice! Came home and reunited with Millie and it felt a bit weird to be home haha.
Finally got to go to DFO this day! Headed off to South Wharf with my sister, mum and aunty & once we got there we pretty much browsed around and lost my mum within 15 minutes because she had to retire to a toilet break and then… disappeared after that, for the whole shopping trip, sigh. So the 3 of us just went around.
My aunty kept suggesting me and my sister clothes and we’d just be like, EW NO LOLLLLL she’s so cute though. We went into a lot of shoe stores, like, a lotttttt (what can I say, we have a thing for shoes).
After like 2 and a bit hours? we gave up due to hunger and the fact that we hadn’t bumped into my mum yet so we went back to the start and found my mum! I only managed to buy like, 2 things but oh well, it was nice to browse!
Drove to foots so that we could have our first meal of the day and it was like 5. My sister’s banh canh looked so unbelievably good. I think we all enjoyed our food.
Then mum & the aunt went around to buy stuff for a bit then we made our way home.
Picture of my sister walking through foots as the sales people are screaming like crazy “BANANA 1KG $1 $1 1KG BANANA!!!!!!!!!!!”
Decided to head out to the city to have some quality time/dinner with my sister & mum! Our cousin gave us a lift there on his way into work and we got to the city at 8pm. We were supposed to eat this exxy all you can eat buffet, but we found out my mum wasn’t that hungry so we decided not to. From then we relied on google maps to get us to this kbbq place, where my sister was in charge and I swear we turned around so many times!
We walked for what felt like ages, and I’m not even joking. The plus side to this journey of ours was definitely just getting a look at some of Melbourne’s alley ways and hidden restaurants etc. THERE ARE SO MANY ALLEYWAYS/LANES AND THEY HAVE NAMES FOR THEM ALL!
So once we reached the destination of the kbbq place by foot after 30 minutes of walking, what do you know, it’s freaking closed! So we were all like stuff it and decided to take a cab to another korean place. We hopped in the taxi, my sister advised him of our destination and the driver’s reply was “You do know it’s right down the street right?” and by this point in time we were all incredibly hungry/pissy so my sister was full like “yeah, but it’s a 20 minute walk” and apparently my mum said he full stared at her in the mirror LOL. Got off the taxi and realised the damn restaurant wasn’t even kbbq!!!!!!! So we walked some more and ended up almost where we started and just decided to eat at little lamb.
I couldn’t even get out of my seat cos of some fat ass behind me and it was a pain getting out and everything. Chatted about a loaaaaaad of stuff throughout dinner and me and my sister kept laughing at the fact mum had to always stand up cos we’d be like “SHOT NOT” and mum’d just stare at us like… what chu sayin?!
After eating we walked to passionflower dessert parlour and on the way me & my sister just talked about the differences between bris, melb & syd and expectations etc! Once we arrived I ordered tiramisu and they ordered some eastern sunrise thing.
My tiramisu was alright until you got to the bottom… and I quite enjoyed their dish. The taro ice cream was so good! We all agreed that green tea icecream tastes weird and I still don’t understand the fuss over anything green tea dessert related.
Walked to MC and to our ‘platform’ but after 5 minutes of standing around we realised it wasn’t even ours, shame LOOOL. Showed my sister the seats and she started posing…
Train ride was good! My sister looked through pictures on my phone, which meant all the kpop idols and she revealed who she liked and who she thought was gross LOL! Once we got off at roxy our aunty picked us up and damn was it cold!
