cockroach 1 : shuen 0

packing is such a pain in the arse!i spent the whole night last night packing every single thing in my room coz i'm required to. darn. its a LOT of work. and i never knew i had THIS many stuff in my room!!i guess i underestimated my shopping power..oops??sorry mom! *sheepish grin*..

i ended up sleeping for about 3 hrs last night. you know why? coz its going into summer here and that's when bloody cockroaches come crawling running out from wherever they hibernate during the winter. i hate cockroaches.


one stupid cockroach flew onto my leg when i was checking my mail at the desk.

a cockroach that crawls is at least tolerable(for me) coz i can still run away from it. but flying cockroaches??!! they come with no warning and they zap in before you know it!!sneaky sneaky!!how dare they!

another stupid-er cockroach clampered onto my bed.

i dont squash bugs (its too icky!!) and i dont have an insect spray in my room. i did a 3 second meditation to gather my whole self in an attempt to provide with the best possible situation for the both of us (me and the cockroach) - get the cockroach onto a piece of cardboard so i can chuck it out of the window. but NOOOOO..it wouldnt get on the cardboard. and where did it go instead?? to my BED!into my doona!the very bed that i sleep in!my comfy comfy bed!it showed its appreciation for ALL the bravery i mustered to get near to it in attempt of NOT killing it.. by sleeping on MY comfy bed!

'biting the hand that feeds you' hath no better example than this, surely!

i refused to get into bed. i attempted to write blogs and tamper with it to occupy myself in attempt to keep me awake. but i couldn tahan when it was 4am..

so i reluctantly climbed into bed. but made sure that the doona was on the FAR edge of the bed, so that it maximises the distance between me and the cockroach which was possibly in there.

i curled up, like a prawn, as how my dad used to say, and slept curled up like that, without my dooona..and it was FRICKING cold yesterday!raining summor!i was there, hugging myself and shivering like mad!and smartass me packed and sealed the heater up just a couple of hours before i went to bed so i couldn get it out. *smacks head*

i left the lights on, coz i was afraid that the dark might just lure the cockroach out. i think of the lights as the cockraoch's kryptonite (teehehehehe)..i dont know if thats true..anyway, there i was with the lights on and my laptop playing songs on really really low volume(thought music might scare the cockroach into not coming out!)

needless to say, with the terrible weather, lights and music switched on, i hardly had a wink of sleep last night. so much for 'take good rest before travelling'.

i HATE cockroaches

Funny Pics..

went for a wonderful breakfast this morning at bronte.

that was 1.30pm

we were debating whether or not french toast with bacon and maple syrup tastes good(honestly, when i first heard of it, i immediately gagged, and felt like throwing up). karina and tim reckons it tastes GREAT.

Being that very brave soul that I am, I set out to on a quest I have yet ventured on. Only brave souls would try something as yucky sounding as this. Only brave souls would go forth without thinking of the after taste. Never before have i heard of it nor have i seen anyone do it. And I, Shuen, am proud to say that I've done it!

I tried my very first french toast with bacon and maple syrup!!!


if you're wondering what it tastes like, its like sweet french toast, which to me is always good, plus bacon..its actually surprisingly good!!!or at least tolerable, for those who cant imagine it right now..i wasnt completely satisfied afterwards though, still had room for more food.

went for a wonderful walk along tamarama aka glamourama to bondi to appreciate art. yes ppl!!i went there for an art exhibition!i have no freaking idea about all the theory and interpretation of art watsoever, i have never taken art before..(if you dont count the ones you take in primary school where all they seem to do is just to encourage you to waste time talking and socialising)..having that said, i still feel refined when i actually go around looking at art pieces.. and i have no idea how you're supposed to enjoy or appreciate art, but i like looking at all those stuff!i managed to take pics of a few art pieces, before my batt ran out(it always seems to happen at the most importune times!)..here are some of em

Mind of a suicidal person : 'you know, i can actually have FUN right before i die! i'll run and jump over hurdles, right before i hop over the cliff into the rocky ocean down there! sounds like a good plan.. :)..i bet no one's killed themselves this way before!damn, i'll even make it to the guiness world of records as well! how cool is that?!'

this piece reminds tim of a pussy...you think?i wish i knew how to photoshop now, so i can put two legs beside it.. :)

that, my frens, was my wonderful day today..beautiful morning breakfast/brunch then a stroll along the cliffs, admiring beautiful pieces of art..

as we were walking, karina mentioned this art piece in an exhibition somewhere where the exhibition comprised of

..an unmade bed
..messy desk
..and rubbish..

it was ruined when someone emptied the trash can..

you think my rooom might make it to the art le louvre someday?

my GOSH!!i cant believe i just fixed the html for the previous blog!!!i'm SOO damn proud of myself!!hahaha..just HAD to blog this coz i'm so proud of myself!!haha..watch out ppl, i might be the female answer to bill gates!!want my signature?better get it now..=)

where's everyone?

no1's been bothered to blog??..why???whyyyy????tell me why????is it coz everyone's still having exams???is it coz i'm the only one now who's finished exams????..haha..alrite, i'll stop being so mean..or maybe not..maybe i should tell you wat i was up to yesterday..maybe i should tell you..

how beautiful the beach was at bondi..

how the girls were tanned and beautiful, sunbathing topless..

how i saw the most perfect ass ever in a g-string bikini..

how i looked delicious in a white bikini..especially after a dip in the cold sea water..

how sunny it was,yet the water was cool...cool as a cucumber(actually, was cooler than a cucumber)..

how amazing dinner at a teppanyaki place at double bay was where the chef performed for us(made us catch food in our bowls..i caught an egg in my bowl, but broke it:tried catching small pieces of fried egg with my mouth, but missed etc etc)..

group photo!!!!i love the top i was wearing tho you cant really see it here!

how super delicious FRIED MARS BAR was!!!..it's one of the most amazing thing i've ever tasted!!they had a batter over the mars bar, deep fried it so the mars bar sorta melted inside..and put icing sugar on top of the batter..it was like eating krispy kreme with a melting mars bar in it!!AMAZING!!you guys HAVE to try it when you come here!!sighz, i now regret not taking photos of those things to put up here..to tease you guys(esp cy!!)!!hahaha..it was a beautiful lazy day yesterday..

it was funny gaining insight on how caucasians perceive asian tourists coming in tour groups to the beach garbed in suits and full-on clothes, just rolling up the bottom of the pants, and wading in the water, taking pictures, to show frens back home that they'd been to the beach and seen bondi..the convesation actually stemmed from watching a group(or rather, couple of groups, of jap tourists in business suits and full bodied clothes)..apparently, its utter crap..they did make a lot of sense..to them, going to the beach involves, lazing in the sun, getting a good warm sunshine on their body, sunning themselves tan..going for a swim in the sea, dipping under the cool waves, bobbing up and down when the waves come in..catching waves(body surfing)..that's what a visit to the beach is like for them..just a stroll along the beach and a few poses for pictures do not constitute to a 'visit to the beach'..

its funny how asian ppl wanna keep themselves away from the sun, buy various whitening products in attempt to have fair porcelain complexion whereas the caucasians, those with fair skin, go to all extent, like getting a self tan spray to spending the whole day under the sun at the beach to try and obtain a tanned complexion..isnt it just ironic?however, i must say that i AM generalising and i'm not saying that ALL asian ppl are like that, or ALL caucasians are either..personally, all i want is for my skin to be the same shade of colour..all over!..that's it..i dont really care if i'm fair or tanned..

btw, i learnt that swimming in a swimming pool and swimming in the sea are two entirely disconnected experience!!!i tried swimmin in the sea yesterday but ended up with a whole bucketful of salty seawater up my nasal cavity(trust me, its not the best feeling in the world-salt water stinging up the upper most cavity of your nose and you cant blow it out coz its already so deep up inside!!)..one tip andrew gave me..always ALWAYS take a gulpful of air just before you go down underwater and just as you get out of the water, even before you push the irritating seaweed-like hair out of your face and splutter, because there IS a chance to have 2 waves crash down on you consecutively..sighz...so many things to learn..so little time..

anywayz,..this is the little time i have to blog something coz i've been REALLY bz..gonna pack now..and then head off to jane's bday dinner at En Casa (a really good spanish restaurant on pitt street!)..cant wait!!

just in case i dont get to blog tomoro, i'm gonna be going for breakfast early morning at bronte and then going to the beach again to see the sculptures on the beach!!its the last day tomoro!!..will remember to take pics this time!!!
