Kat - After exams and moving out

Who would have known that after my exams it'll still be so hectic? It's even more stressful than during the exams. The packing of stuff, the sending back, the arguing with some bast**d who works in the Canberra pack and send, the moving to a new place, the cleaning up and the settling in.

Gosh! It's all busy busy go go go.

After my exams ended, I had only 3 days to pack and send everything that I want back home. If you are wondering, I'm going back Singapore to complete my degree. Therefore, the need to send all my stuff back. The manager who happens to also be the only guy that works in the civic pack and send just sucks. I'm not gonna bore you with the details of what the guy did and this is also a fashion blog, as well as a happy one, so I'm gonna rant and rant and curse him on my personal blog later! Anyway, I sent 4 boxes back home. Pardon the no makeup face these few days as everyday was really busy and hectic!

What's on me:
Jimi hendrix top, cotton on leopard leggings($1), Dotti jeans jacket, vintage bag.

That's my 4 boxes of stuff back home. They cost 400AUD! I've pretty much pack all my clothes in, so I'm like left with those clothes that I don't really like and I haven really worn yet.

I also had dinner with several friends at Happys! Chinese food is really good. =]

What's on me:
Huge black bag ($5), cotton on workers shorts, black tights.

I love the black bag! It's really big and handy! I can throw literally everything in. Hoho!

I spent the last day in my hall taking pictures! It was kinda last minute. The whole hall was so empty. There were like ten people left? Eerieee!

The weather in Canberra has been crazy. It's supposed to be summer but temperature here in the day is like 6 degrees? The white jacket that I had on me, I had originally planned to give it to the salvation army. I dug that out to wear as I have packed every single warm clothing that I owned in those 4 boxes. I thought you wouldn't need a jacket in summer! And in Australia at that. But it's so cold these few days. Murphy's Law. hurhur.

I shifted into my friend's house 3 days ago? The location is really great. 15 mins walk to the city centre and 10 min bus ride to the Chinatown in Canberra. The house is really big and the rent is great. The only bad point is that it's a little run down and old.

What's on me:
DIY black distressed stir up leggings, white tights, bandage dress, dotti jeans jacket, Zu peep toe oxfords, huge bag, vintage necklace.

What's on me:
Long tank from taiwan, cotton on blue cardigan, studded belt, vintage bag.

I need a job! LOL! and I've been cooking since I moved to my friend's place. I have to say I'm quite the cook! I had fried rice today and I made spicy honey baked chicken thighs yesterday. Grocery shopping like everyday. haha. =]

kat - Celebration dinner

It's a post guy's birthday dinner celebration! We didn't really have one as were having our exams during his birthday week. The dinner was so good. I had like one of the best dinner here! We went for a tim sum buffet. Sweet. I love yumcha.

Buying our tickets to the new bond movie. The show disappoints. It's so not convincing and the bad guy fights like a girl.

The food! yum!!
guy enjoying his mango pudding.


I folded the receipt into 2 hearts. =]

The last photo before heading over to the cinemas.

What's on me:
BYSI lace top, dotti ruffles skirt, Zu peep toe oxfords, cotton on blue cardigan, vintage clutch, accessories from here and there.

There was a long queue even before the movie started. It's free seating in aussie, so it's a first come first serve basis. My friends reached an hour before the movie started and they said there was already a long queue.

I packing up all my stuff to send them back home. Packing is such a pain the the arse.

Kat - Hooray for end of exams! =]

I just finished my exams yesterday. 3 cheerss!
It was such a long journey, but I'm glad it's over. Some of the exam were fine, and some weren't as good as I hoped it'll be. But what's done is done, I can just hope that the results will be satisfactory.

One thing for sure that happens during exam. I just get fatter and fatter. You wake up in the morning at 8? Have breakfast, come up into your tiny little room and start studying. You go down for lunch at 12.30pm and then at maybe 2, you start studying again. At 3, you have a teabreak because the hall serves "stress food" to all residents during exams. So what is stress food? It's pastries, cookies, scones, muffins, basically all that makes you fat. At around 6pm, you have dinner. At 8pm you start studying again. And maybe at 1am, you feel hungrie and cook some instant noodles. And you take a break from studying as you eat. You sleep at maybe 3 to 4 am? The cycle repeats itself the next day.
WHEN YOU STUDY ALL YOU DO IS SIT ON YOUR CHAIR IN THE ROOM NOT MOVING A SINGLE METRE. gosh. Plus all the coffee, chocolates, lollies, chips. What have you, all these are your best friends. haha.

So now, let me take you through a journey of me - getting fat. (please note that this does not happens to guy. In fact he lost weight. I have no idea how. His metabolism is astonishing. And i hate him for that. IDIOT!)

Those are my new pair of heels! I know I'm abit slow in getting the oxfords, but woohoo I love them. They are absolutely yummy to me. haha! I went DFO earlier today and I bought 2 bags for school. They are big, so that's a plus point. n_n
