Just a quick update before I rest for another work week.
It has been a nice week. Bangkok Trip(X), short work week and finally met up with my Uni friends to take some pictures with our graduation gowns! A pity I was the only one who didn't have it and had to take turns with the rest... :( After an entire afternoon spent together yesterday, I also rushed down to Jiaxuan's house for our Mid-Autumn celebration. Had steamboat for dinner and chilled for the rest of the night. ^^ No pictures for the latter activity though. :(
My takeaways after 1.5years in RMIT! Sera and Jeannette. :)
Sadly, I haven't got down to replace my broked tripod and had to settle with a dustbin not far away for these shots. xD
Of course we didn't meet up just to take pictures!
Before having fun dressing each other and taking pictures, we had a nice lunch at Halia. It is located quite deep into Botanic Gardens, and it took us more than 30 minutes to finally reach the place. To be fair, we got lost and made an unneccessary HUGE detour. -,- Lol. The staffs at Halia told my friend it's only a 10-15 minutes walk from the train station. Hurrrrr.
Jeannette, Weishan and I first met at the train station while Sera travelled there with her Dad. Looking at the map around Botanic Gardens, we assumed the place would be far and started walking. We chatted and complained while walking. We kept making sure we were on the right track by checking with the maps around. After about 20 minutes we came back to the same freaking spot!!!! The start of our bloody long walk ended back at the train station!!!!!! Hahahahahah. So stupid. We were almost screaming at ourselves for being so silly.
So anyway, we took another 15 minutes or so before finally arriving at the restaurant.
I like the place. The air-conditioning made our experience perfect. LOL!
Settled down, made our choices (3 of us chose "The Halia Breakfast" while Sera went with "Halia Chili Crab Spaghetti") and started chatting the wait away. Caught up and had a satisfying brunch! No food pictures~ And then! Weishan was in for a surprise. HEHE.
I'm happy we managed to make her surprised and this happy. Hahahaha.
Weishan looked so blissful, yes? hahahaha.
:D :D :D
A surprise for the girl whose Birthday is in 2 days! :D
We also ordered two other desserts to end our nice brunch together.
The other girls went wide-eyed when this was served. Hahahaha.
Their carrot cake that the girls described as fallen-on-the-floor-and-scooped-up-cake. Lol.
The food and desserts were okay.
Nothing fantastic or memorable. I thought Halia Breakfast was a bit too salty, and the beef sausage was a bit too dry.
The portion made it a satisfying brunch though.
Despite the average food, I would still go back for their ambience.
Spent quite a while catching up with each other.
About work. About guys. About relationships. And about anything under the sun.
Finally headed out to take pictures at 5-ish.
And then,,, I shall leave to spam this space. :D
Purposely standing infront of me on a slope to emphasize the height difference. Walao.
&Here's us laughing hard.
I've uploaded most of our best pictures, but we had a lot of bloopers thanks to Jeannette. Our eye-closing-at-the-wrong-time expert. Hahahahhahaha.
She has always been the spoiler to our pictures. And so, I've decided to compile the few failed shots because of her. xD
It'll be worse when we countdown to take the shots.
She'll just blink at the wrong time, all the time! Lol.
I CAN NEVER UNDERSTAND HOW SHE JUST SHUTS HER EYES AT THE WRONG TIME!!!
And here she is smiling so so sweetly!!!! Lol.
Nice background and all but see who closed her eyes again!
&Here is Sera getting her influenced. LOL.
Thanks to Jeannette, we really had a good laugh yesterday. Hahahahha.
Okay luh, here's a nice picture of her to make up for all the failed shots and teases from me. HEHE.
All of us laughing thanks to Jeannette.
Weishan's not in the picture because I'm wearing her regalia. :X
Our shots would have been perfect if it's all 4 of us together with the gowns!
I look like I'm hunching :/
Taking shots with the flowers in our normal clothing!
Tip-toe because they are all so tall!
The height difference....... Jeannette is actually just right behind me. :( Lol.
GRADUATE LO!!! :D
It was a nice 1.5 years together with them even though we weren't really classmates throughout. :)
