Is it a good thing? Hmm.. dilemma.. But still, I'm goin to miss study life and my one year life here in Melbourne. Really memorable. Starting to love the environment here ady. Feels that time is moving too fast this year. Loads of great things happening, and at the same time there are some issues goin on back home.
Well, i guess i just need to be more optimistic. Everything can be solved no matter how. At the moment, i have 4 major assignments in hand. 2 of them already 80% done and another 2 is still progressing. Hopefully i can get it done b4 deadline . Too much to think now. Not sure which one to focus on.
Working and studying at the same time ain't that easy. Most of my OZs frens are doing that too but they seems ok with it. Maybe they are used to that kinda situation as they study and work part time since high school. Whereas, to be compared, most M'sians will not do that. For me, if i study means no work. Vice versa. Too pampered ady which is not good.
okie dokie. assignments calling ! ciaoz!

Lets start with the Mid Autumn Fest i had few weeks back. It was awesome though i din get to celeb with my family, but i've got bunch of nice frens here to celeb with.
Since we had one week of holiday, we organised a BBQ party at the park near my apartment. It was a week ahead b4 the Mid Autumn fest. That was a cold night though spring is approaching. I'm not suprise with that as Melbourne is famous with its crazy weather. Everyone was shiverring especially when the wind blew.
A lot of them told us that, OZ ppl normally BBQ at noon or something. Hmm.. weird.. Of coz we as Malaysian prefer to do it at night. Its just the way it is. As usual, Rachel and I did most of the grocery for BBQ and we invited like about 12 ppl. Its just so hard to estimate food for so many ppl.
Anyway, we did all grocery a day b4 that. Marinate all the meats the night b4.
Here comes the fun time!
Some of the meat n seafood...
(fr left to right: Jeremy, Leeq, Evonne)
Begin the cooking. Looks different from wat we had from M'sia hor. Its a hotplate. No charcoal, no smokes. Basically its just like cooking outside the house. Don't really have those BBQ feeling like wat we had in KL.
Moreover, the street lamp in the park wasnt bright enough. We had to use lantern and hp's light to brighten up the environment. So cham.. But looks romantic.. LOL.
Hmm.. this one a bit like horror movie's wallpaper or something like tat. eerie... ~~
Thru this pic, u'll know how cold tat nite was.
We lighted up the lanterns n hung it on the tree.. Nice..
Since Meng Jiunn's birthday is coming in 2 weeks time from tat day, we planned to have a suprise celebration for him. We worried that we will be pilled up with assignments and have no time to celeb his 21st birthday, so we have it on that nite too.
The pic below shows the progress.
1. Suprise!!!!! (all of us shouted)
2. MJ's shocked face....
3. Julia a.k.a. MJ's "wife" presented him the cake.
4. Make a wish, make a wish~~
5. Jeremy's gift for MJ... hmm...
6.Speech time... " i wanna thank.......... "
7. Pressie giving time. Happy anot? :P
We were thinking of taking a family potrait. So we came up with a few different styles of it.
Malay style family portrait.. With "fake" tudung n songkok..Look at the ghost beside me.. lol.. it was a shower curtain btw. :D
"Default" Leeq's pose. Must pout the lips.
Johnny's default "BIG SMILE" Show ur teeth everyone!
