Perfect Match!

I think every girl should have a red dress. I recently acquired this red dress that is really outstanding among my existing wardrobe of black, grey and white. It is going to be part of my wedding dresses. Still not sure when or where i am going to wear it.

It is one of those love at first sight kinda dress which i bought without caring much of its price tag. ( hey, like Malcolm says, if a wedding is not the time when i can spend some money buying the things i like, when is? ) I have been looking for a dress like this for a while: pluging neckline, chiffon soft, a bow and pleated detail.

Here, i am matching it with the pendant and earrings that i am loving most at the moment and a pair of shoe i found at ( another one of those thing that i like but can not afford to buy).

What do u think?

Girls Night Out

One of the most unforgettable nights in life. 20060819. with Schani and Jovy.

Schani and me

Jovy and me

At some restaurant in Hardware Lane, sorry forgot the name, where they made me wear this incredibly huge blinking ring!

Sofitel's cafe. Our own version of Charlie's Angel.

Melbourne City

The refurbished GPO building on Bourke Street, taken at Dusk with the tram lines as backdrop.

I will forever remember this sign as this is probably the first few things that got etched into my mind when i first arrived in Melbourne.

Fairfield Boathouse, Fairfield, Melbourne

There's always interesting thing to discover about Melbourne. Be it a new tiny little cafe in one of the laneways or another funky new building in the suburb. That's what i like about Melbourne, never boring.

So, the last trip we made back to Melbourne, we discovered Fairfield Boathouse. Well, Malcolm's brother Lincoln drove us around there to look at houses and they told us about this cute little wooden structure. When i saw it i felt like i was transported to 100 years back when this building was built. Strangely, it also reminded me of this temple i went to somewhere in KL when i was little.

Joyz and i shared a hearty breakfast. We also went boat rowing. Such fun activity so close to the city.

Wish List No. 1

Imagine me wearing this set of vintage black rose earring and pendant from for my wedding! I certainly would not spend 300 bucks on this. Plus i just got a speeding ticket of $133.00. I could not believe its so expensive. I got to learn how to do it.

Mountain Hike Week 3 - Nadmagi National Park - Booroomba

Toughness factor - 2
View - Magnificient

Its simply amazing. Just half an hour out of city and we got to Nadmagi National Park and discovered a whole new world of mountain walking tracks. Since we are amateur and didn't have much time we chose the easiest and shortest walk. It was 2.5 k return in about one and half hours. Was Steep enough that i was huffing and puffing climbing up even though Malcolm could not catch up with me while we were decending. These pictures below do no justice to the actual view up there. When we were almost at the top, there was these huge rocks and a sign saying " Don't throw rocks below the clift as they may be rock climbers below " Mmmm, interesting, rock climbers below, i thought... We continued climbing up and suddenly, there was this magnificient view in front of your eyes with this huge fall into a valley! My legs were shaking standing at the edge!

Looks easy but its not as simple as these few steps

Huge rock.. somehow the camera didn't capture the steepness of the rocks.
Malcolm looking down.
I think i might have to invest in some wide angle lense or something to capture the panoramic view.

Mountain Hike Week 2 - Issac's Ridge

Toughness factor - 2
View : Not much to see, all blocked by trees. Comment : I could not make it to the top after seeing the carcass. I fled!

There wasn't a single soul in sight. Although there was a proper walking path.
We were almost at the top, but i had to pull Malcolm to turn back after seeing the below....
I think it was a kangaroo. It has got a long tail bone.

Mountain Hike Week 1 - Mount Taylor

Toughness Factor ( scale of 1- 5 ) : 2
