My Introduction to The Janoskians

Yesterday, watching random Youtube vids together:

Me: Oh hey, who are the Janoskians and why are they famous?
Elle: Oh you don't know them??
Me: Nope the only video I've watched of them before is them doing the dance dare.

~Elle explains that they do pranks on the unsuspecting public, comedy vids etc~

Me: That's it?! And they have hordes of teenage girls obsessing over them like they're One Direction?!
Elle: Oh they released a song too.
Me: Oh that's cool I guess (not really impressed).
Elle: Well here let's watch one of their videos.

Four videos later...

Me: Ermm...I think I have a crush on one of them...
Elle: ..............................
Me: TEEHEE!
Elle: "Oooh! I don't even know why girls like them~!" *facepalm*

So yeah that's basically how I started liking the Janoskians.

To be honest I was sold like, fourteen seconds into the first video that I watched lol ("Public Affection").

And the guy was Beau. Damn, he foine~

And after watching like, 10 more videos of them last night (in the freaking RIDONKULOUS heat and with slowass internet speed, that's dedication I tell you!) I also think the Brooks twins are supa cute lol.

Would it be too much to put up their poster on the surface of my completely empty wall when I get back to Singapore...?

Xmas Wishes

Well, I decided to make a pretty picture to say merry Christmas to you guys but I totally overlooked the fact that my grandparents' five year old laptop is slow as hell. Coupled with Snail Speed Internet, it took me about three hours to make this.


Ta-dah!

Just wanted to say merry Christmas to all of my lovely readers out there. Yes, all seven of you! Helloooo~!! :D

***

After some anxiety since last year, the World did not end on the 21st. Around midnight my dad was driving the family around Perth. I expected to see huge fireballs raining down on us, a tidal wave of flames consuming us from over the horizon etc. but alas, nothing of the sort. We went back home at around two in the morning, I showered and slept. Woke up the next day and the World was still there.

Is it weird that a little part of me was anticipating the apocalypse and was even slightly disappointed that it didn't happen?

Oh wells.

Cheers to the start of a new era!

***

Going to be saying bye-bye to Aussie in five days...

On one hand I can't bear to leave but I also really miss my life in Singapore. Yes, I'm talking to you, High-speed Internet.

And I can't wait to download and watch the new episodes of HIMYM.

Hehehehe.

Have a lovely Xmas!

Don't Worry, Be Happy :D

Hello there my beautiful, sweet pumpkin pies!

I was gonna open this post with the Spanish lines of Pitbull's I Know You Want Me because that damn song has been stuck in my head for like three days but I googled the lyric translation and it meant some pretty dirty stuff so. No.

Lol.

So yeah just wanted to pop in and say hiiiiiiii from Down under! I am having so much fun and happiness is just engulfing me everywhere I go, whatever I'm doing.

Nowadays I feel a bit bad for telling people how insanely happy I am, whether it's mentioning it to people in real life or sharing it online. It sounds like I'm bragging and rubbing it in the faces of people who might be in a situation where they can't really be joyous. 

What I want to say is, happiness is a mindset! I used to be soooo bloody pessimistic my whole life, up until about a year ago. I'd have to say 2012 was the year where my mentality really transformed and since then, I've experience immense amounts of happiness.

Of course I still have days where I feel down, sometimes for no particular reason. But more than anything, I find myself feeling more contented with things in life and thus happier about everything.

If you're wondering what I did to gain this wonderful new outlook in life, I read The Secret (as well as the sequel The Power and I've started on The Magic). Yes, it's well-known for having life changing effects on its readers and I know there are some skeptics out there. Even I thought the concept was too good to be true. But alas, I gave it a go and it's totally changed my life and made it all sorts of awesome.

Lastly, I just wanna say to you reading this: Please don't take the little things in life for granted. If you can take note of and be grateful for the small details in your everyday life; good weather, a comfy bed to sleep in at night, family and friends who make you feel all warm and fuzzy, the internet (y'all know this is something to be thankful for!), you'll find yourself becoming a much happier person. Even in situations which seem shitty, count your blessings.

Alright I'm gonna end off with this embarassing find...

So I'm at my grandparents' house now, where there's glorious internet to be surfed, and I'm looking through the files in my account on my grandparents' laptop.

Take note that this laptop has been around since 2008.

And, right there in the music folder...


A WHOLE FOLDER OF SONGS IN AUDITIONSEA. And not kpop songs, mind you. ORIGINAL. AUDITION SONGS.

*SPLUTTER* IDEK WHAT TO SAY.

Downloaded in mid of 2008, during my phase of being really into AuditionSEA songs. What is wrong with me lol?!

Okay la to be fair some of them are nice songs. And do you know how hard it was for me to find high quality, original Audi Mp3s?! So yeah. Pat on the back lol.

Okay bye! I'll blog about some of the superfundifferous adventures I've been having the next time I get to come online.

Take care lovelies!

Awfully Cute

My godmum treated me to some dessert at Awfully Chocolate! It was my first time trying it. Yes, I'm terribly sua gu.


Their chocolate cake and 黑 (literally 'black') ice cream, which is essentially a dark chocolate ice cream. Soooo decadent and yummy~

Afterwards, we headed over to my godmum's little nieces' house where we played with their guinea pig!


And its name is...[BLANK]

No seriously it has no name lol.


No name judging you.

Breakfast at The Toast Box:


Peanut butter toast and my sister's uber sweet-smelling cotton candy Lipsmacker.


Ham and cheese toast which was pretty damn delicious but waaaay too salty. I couldn't take more than one bite without having to chug water.

***

Well as you can tell by the time at which I posted this entry, my sleep cycle is horribly messed up. Therefore, I'm going to stay up for as long as I possibly can today then crash and be well rested for my early morning flight on Sunday! There is no way in hell I'm gonna sleep on Singapore Airlines, with the freaking glorious entertainment they provide.

I ♥ airplane rides~~

I Donut Like You

(just kidding I wuv you~)

Kracie Happy Kitchen donuts!

The price is usually $11.90 for Kracie sets (found at any of those stores which have a separate compartment displaying each 'shop's' items) but I got mine for $8.10 from an online store which was having a sale! No additional fees as I met up with the seller. Well, unless you want to factor in the cost of transport I took to get there but I wanted to go to that place anyways. So yeah, $8.10 for a Kracie donut set, whooo~!!

I'm not gonna be captioning the photos much coz it's freaking cold tonight and I'm a little out of it. If you want to read some information-y comments then feel free to hop on over to my Kracie Happy Kitchen cupcakes post ^_^


A little dented but who cares as long as the contents inside are intact! :D





The dough smelled INCREDIBLE. Sweet and creamy with a hint of chocolate for the brown one. I couldn't resist it and took a nibble, they tasted horrid haha.

WARNING: GROSS

If this doesn't look like poop I don't know what does...


Complete with undigested chunks and all hahaha alright I'm gonna stop now.


All rolled up into little balls, ready to be moulded! Cute strawberry scissors not included with the Kracie set ;P


Oops one more doo-doo pic! Lolololol okay that's it no more poo for the rest of this post I promise! xD

When I did the Kracie cupcakes, there was just enough batter to make one of each shape in each of the two batter colours. So I assumed it would be the same for the donuts. But there was enough dough to make...


lotsa donuts. And I do mean LOTS!

On to the decoration phase!


Icing, which also smelled INSANELY good. I tried the chocolate one and it tasted great so I ended up having about half a teaspoon of it lol.


Sprinkles~! :D

And, the finished product...


*grins*


It was fun but I stupidly started playing at like 3 in the morning (the cupcakes took me less than an hour so I just assumed lol. Stupid.) and I spent like, an hour just decorating them. Towards the end I was so tired and cranky it was hard to enjoy it :\

But all in all, I liked making and decorating them! I'm hoping to try some savoury food sets next. Also because I want to taste them lol #fatkid

***

Two more days til Perth! Omg is this really happening :O

I am gonna get soooo fat there lol I'm not even kidding. Le sigh. Hope my pants will still fit me after the trip.

New Layout :D

Well hello, my young and beautiful darlings~

How do you guys like my new layout? I personally can't stop staring at it coz I love rainbows and I love pastels so it's just so darn pretty to me ♥

It was a spur-of-the moment decision and I derived inspiration from this ad I saw in DOLLY magazine:


***

I went to catch Hotel Transylvania with my family today, the first time I've been to the cinema since Madagascar 3. It was pretty funny :3

My favourite character is probably the werewolf husband! The scene where his wife is in a peaceful slumber and he has his mountain of children stacked up on him, his eyes wide and bloodshot, was hilarious. And when he got the morning call I lmao-ed xD

Three more days til I wrap up the year with a trip to Perth~ Omo omo~~~!!

Birthday 2012 :)

Fairly late post of my birthday meal and some pressies :P

On my birthday I craved some Japanese food, namely some dishes from Sakae Sushi. It kinda goes without saying but I could pick wherever I wanted to eat at, because I was queen for the day~! Oh ho ho ho~

Was looking forward to eyeing the conveyor belt with gleeful anticipation and grabbing the plates of goodies which I wanted to nom on but sadly, my family and I went kinda late thus there were only a few boring dishes circling the restaurant over and over again :(

Nevertheless, I got to satisfy my cravings with items from the menu!


Deep fried salmon! Soooo good with Japanese mayo. I'm so glad I can eat it without getting an allergic reaction, unlike when I eat raw salmon. WHY SO WEIRD?!


Tempura prawn crepe maki with cheese! It was alright I guess. Prawn lovers would enjoy it :) I ordered it because I love cheese lol.


Yummy caramel coffee drink with coffee-flavoured jelly bits that are so fun to nibble on!


My dad's katsudon except instead of pork, there's prawns. I LOVE THE TASTY EGG AND ONIONS ON KATSUDONS. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Afterwards we bought a birthday cake for moi and headed for dessert at Baskin Robbins :)

ABOUT TIME Singapore opened up some Baskin Robbin branches! I've always thought it'd be fun to work at an ice-cream parlour but frankly speaking, my lack of any arm strength would make it hard for me haha.


Can't really remember the flavours that we got but I know the yellow one was banana, which was the flavour of Scorpio, my star sign :)


Two reeeally yummy chocolate flavours. I think one was rocky road ♥


My birthday cake, along with some random knick-knacks in the background :P

I got the marble cheesecake from Crystal Jade bakery and I have to say it was an absolute disaster. I've tried the oreo cheesecake from the same place and it tasted great so naturally I expected the marbled variety to be just as amazing, if not better. It turned out to be an awful, sloppy mess. It wasn't like a cake at all, more like glop that they'd set in the fridge. Besides the horrible texture, the entire 'cake' was SALTY, without a hint of sweetness except of course for the pieces of chocolate. It was a nightmare. I don't know if this was a one-time dud or if Crystal Jade actually gets away with making such vile marbled cheesecakes. Okay now I sound kind of mean...But it truly was disgusting.

Alright it's almost half past 2 in the morning and I'm gonna go play with my Kracie Happy Kitchen set. Toodles!

Food-induced Tears

On Tuesday my family and I went to pray at our regular temple before going to have dinner at our regular restaurant. Only thing was, our regular restaurant was no longer there.

The whole place was revamped, there was a new signboard and the restaurant had a new name. We recognized one of the staff, however, so we went in and enquired. Apparently there's been a change of management and they've come up with a brand new concept and menu.

I couldn't have been more pleased upon picking up their new menu. As much as I loved their previous dishes, their new selection of pastas and risottos seemed absolutely spectacular! They all come with a soup, a salad and a drink. I chose lychee-peach flavoured iced tea and it was sooooo great at quenching my monster thirst.


Sun-dried tomato pesto penne with delicious chicken chunks, which my parents shared. I LOVE PESTO!! The sauce had a curry-ish taste to it, super yummy.


My super awesome green pea risotto with...SCALLOPS!!!!! I FREAKING LOVE SCALLOPS!!!! The scallops were the only reason I ordered this dish tbh. The risotto was fine, nothing majorly impressive. But the cute lil scallops were AWSUM. Savoured every bite of it :')


My sister's carbonara which was AMAZEBALLS. The double-smoked bacon bits were soooo good. And non-fatty, too! I hate bacon with lots of gross white fatty bits >:(

Yes, I sampled everyone's dish and they were all incredibly yummy. The downside is that they are a bit on the pricey side hence I probably won't be going back, unless maybe for a special occasion. And I just miss them...I miss how tasty they are. And I'm sitting here thinking about them, looking at pictures of them...hence the tears.

Alright now this is just getting creepy and frankly, kind of sad so. Bye.

xoxo
