have the swine flew?

3 Comments
cough, check. (gone now)
sore throat, check.
aching body, kinda.
fever, impending.
headache, not really.
chills, nope.
fatigue, yeah (meds).
diarrhoea, nope.
vomiting, nope.
respiratory problems, a little before i was even here.
sudden dizziness, nooo.
confusion, aplenty now!


what's your diagnosis??


...

i just googled 'swine flu victoria' and the number is 53.
(in case you didn't know i'm in victoria)

fuck.
this.
shit.

are you gonna ostracise me now??
is that it?

sigh, for the good of mankind, if i am not better by tomorrow i'm gonna camp it out here instead of heading back to the city to have fun with the peeps.

i is sad :(:(:(



...



on a lighter note[insert eye-rolling 'really'], i've word that the finals results are out...

it's like telling someone who has the bubonic plague that they finally know whether that wart on her nose is cancerous or not.

okay, overdramatising. but yeah you get what i mean.
tried to check online but it's not there so i guess it's unofficially out and plastered over the department walls where no one will see them (hopefully...) [crosses fingers and toes]











p.s.

oh yeah and please pray for me touchwood in case it might be of the oink variety.

seriously. effing unopportune time to catch a flu, ya think?!
so many places i still wanna go, so many things i still wanna do.
please let me get better ASAP and please please please let me be better by my flight back else they'd quarantine me and then i'd really have something to blog about.

that is all.


-nooo, freddo!-

sleeping with the fishes

1 Comments
HELLO KAWAN-KAWAN SEKALIAN
(does it annoy you that i randomly sprout malay all the time?? ahaha i don't care!)

this is me, blogging from melbourne suburbia :)
i'm a little sedih cause my daily hit count has dropped from 59 to 27.
i know it's cos there're no new posts but don't forget me okay.... hehe.

anyways, i'm in my aunt's house now in little ol' noblepark north which is pretty near clayton and the dandenongs. apparently my uncle has a thing for fishes (what is it with uncles and fishes?? there's an innate affinity or something like that... i'm pretty sure 90% of the uncle population has gone through a fish-obsession phase at some point. if you know one who's never been into fishes before, trust me, it's coming i tell ya.) so almost every room in the house has fishes! i'm sleeping with 2 tanks of 'em now (hence the title, as if you couldn't figure it out by yourself nyahahahohohehe. sorry, losing it) and they're not very pretty... the pretty ones are in the living room :(
no worries though, not like i hate fishes or anything.

ooh and i had the bestest fish n chips for lunch today at apollo bay.

and and my aunt has a wild-turned-tame parrot in the house who says 'hello' (sort of)

:D

today i travelled 8 hours to go look at rocks -_-"
and saw wild koalas on the way! zomg


plus you know how i always say i have a shit/crapload of photos?
...well saying that now would be an extreme understatement.
muahaha.


i miss malaysia already what is this rubbish but i love melbourne still!

please time pass slow slow, slowly the slowslowslowness kays. thanks, love ya!

cats and moonlight

IMG_0861IMG_0894

creatures of the night, we are.

IMG_0872

“When you notice a cat in profound meditation,
   The reason, I tell you, is always the same:
His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation
   Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name:
     His ineffable effable
     Effanineffable
Deep and inscrutable singular Name.” – T.S. Eliot

 

 

oh and btw,

IMG_0792

ginger is shedding.
and that’s from only a minute of brushing.

 

 

 

ganas lion

(photo removed due to death threat)

delete my photos lah!
i wasn’t really gonna post any of them but now…
die die oso i post the one you left behind :P
but i made it a small one
(i still have a heart.lol)

 
her hair is sho the blonde now.

 

 

 

ooh ooh

did you see the moon on Wesak Day???
around… say 8pm

 

DSCF1592

FREAKIN HUGE KAY!!!!

the moment i saw it from inside the car my mouth just dropped open. 
it was so humongous it would pop out from behind some rooftop or tree at every turn and wow me all over again.

 

it shrunk progressively into the night but twas still as bright as ever :):):)

IMG_1055

so bright in fact, there were actually two rings of rainbow around it…
should i credit the rainbows to the brightness or the clouds? oh well.
(the centric circle of light isn’t really the moon itself, it was just too bloody bright to actually take one minus the illumination.)

i sat in my swing for quite a bit just staring up at the moon.


then my neck started hurting.

:(

so i came back in to upload pictures and saw this…

IMG_0841

by some freak of a coincidence, a bump in the road + my unsteady hands made hearts out of the lights <3 (they look like hearts to meeee)

if you’re wondering why there’s a pic of the road it’s because all the way back from jusco i was trying to get a picture of the moon but er… failed very very miserably

for example,

IMG_0844 copy

aish.

 

then a thought struck me :D
moonlight painting!

okay… this is my first attempt at light painting and my camera’s shutter speed isn’t exactly the slowest in the world so bear with me aight?


IMG_0918snoopy??

haha.
nice try, xinli.
nice try!

 

then my arms started hurting.

4 Comments

 

so,

today i found this on thecherryblossomgirl

image

pretty?
adore the rustic yet delicate feel of this seemingly magically hewn charm.
the colours flow into each other so well you can almost see it move…

image

like it has a life of it’s own.

 

 

saw something similar on theclotheshorse a while back

image 

gahhh… so nice!

 

thus i set out on a mad forage in the junkyard that is my room… i swear i remember i had one somewhere. my granduncle gave one to me when i was a little kid because i thought it was amusing. if you haven’t had the luck to chance upon one of these dear little baits, i’ll have you know the stacked scales allows it to flop like a real fish :)

 

 

 

after 3 mins…
i found it!!!
(i guess i know my junkyard well)

 

 

TADAAA

IMG_0799

sigh…
mine looks positively dead.
i think it’s in the eyes…
and it doesn’t help that it’s a garish green…
and the tail only has 2 fins instead of 4 :(
and and because i loved it so, i kept it in a little ziplock
so it’s as bright, shiny and gaudily new as ever!
sad wei.

 

but it holds good memories of bait boxes and wooden floorboards.

i might wear it.
just might.

if you see me somewhere with a gaudy green thing hung around my neck please do not question my taste nor sanity. i am merely sentimental.

 

 

 

edit:

IMG_0800_thumb[7]

apparently if you tilt it a bit… it looks more alive

hahahahah

jess’ convo – long overdue

5 Comments

 

i’m here to get some stuff out of my system.
i wish i wasn’t this way… i wish i blogged on time, i do i do.

‘so why don’t you?!’, you ask.

because… i’m xinli
PROCRASTINATOR EXTRAORDINAIRE!!!
[jazzhands]

 

aii, so here’s

           jess’s convocation slash fashion show

for ya!
if you haven’t already read it over at ell’s :)

 

mayang sari ballroom, j.w. marriot hotel
26th march
(yeah, march! told ya it was long overdue)

 

i can’t even remember all the details now. sobsob. but it was a great day…

behold, the photos~!

 

IMG_0165

hello~ it is i,
xinli, the gorgeous.
[pukes]
(not in a bulimic way, more of a cannot-tahan-my-own-narcissism gag reflex)

 

ell came over to um and ferried me back to jess’s place so we could make ourselves presentable :)

 IMG_0189

and presentable we were!
please excuse that white mass near my left knee, it’s a shawl which i brought along because i was afraid of freezing but it turned out not that cold and so it spent the rest of the night pretending to be part of my bag but failing miserably because i evidently forgot about it’s existence and it remained a white jumbled mass instead of a ribbon or something nice like that :( :( can u tell i’m upset it’s there? oh well…
how cute is ell?!?!
then again, when is she not? ;)
love her skirt lah got pocket wan!

 IMG_0173

‘cause i er like macro shots?

 

IMG_0180 

hallo fellow camwhorer~
she was like “quick, quick, take a photo of me driving!”

 

so we got there… a little later than planned (because of the jam, silly, not because we were busy taking pictures!), but still early nonetheless ‘cause ell had to be jess’ personal assistant all over again. haha.

IMG_0186

helping missJ set up her booth…
which was featured in TongueInChic okayyy~
not only is my friend glam but also geng chao! haha.

 

and here’s smalls of some of the other booths

 IMG_0205DSCF2106 

DSCF2107DSCF2109   IMG_0200DSCF2111  IMG_0203IMG_0204

as you can see, most of them opted for black and white… so it'd look chic-er?
but it gets a little boring when everyone’s the same.

 

IMG_0195

DatinLeong herself
do you or do you not love her dress?? it’s so holly golightly :)
i want one too!
sadly, there’s a high probability that i might end up looking like a lamp post.
(and why the hell is that guy behind us laughing at our asses???)

 

IMG_0187

zomg cool people.
haha i’m such a stalker.

 

IMG_0191

the fashion designers.
kay this was sneaked and they were posing for another cam so that is why it’s blurr.
fine, i have no skills…

 

IMG_0193 

DatinLeong again but this time with ell,
minus the disturbing ass-laughing boy which is now replaced by some crazy-hair woman (really now, very salah hair, that is) and some random blurry uncle


don’t you just adore the crowd?
ell and i had a ball just crowd-watching…
so many quirky, flamboyant gays and really cool/chic girls.

 

IMG_0197

haha!
i just had to take one with eden!!!
he was oozing jihoo-ness :)

sigh
jihoo my love, where art thou?
will they not make season 2 of BOF?!

 

 IMG_0198

finger food.
yeah all they had was finger food… and some small dishes. i think the bestest was the swiss meatballs, that’s all. they even had bihun wth so kiam!

 

IMG_0256

you can sorta see a little peek of the pumpkin carriage here… can’t believe i didn’t take a pic of it. it’s a display for some advertising or marketing grad. was really cute!! picture a pink pumpkin carriage loaded with candies and lollies.

 

 

IMG_0196

here’s ell being photographed by some press people for a lenglui column.
hey, she asked to take mine too! :D i’m also lenglui. lol.

 

 IMG_0221

we’re both lengluis :D
elo teo, see pretty flower in head.
what’s that lady in the back pointing at, i wonder?
(fyi, today is noticing-the-background day)

 

DSCF2116

here we are, all set for the convocation!
dude, that’s what my bro could look like in a year.
all fat, chinese kids with shorn hair look kinda the same. lol.

 

IMG_0254 

someone’s grandparents i presume
they ish a cute couple!

don’t know if i’ve mentioned it here before but my granpa still calls my grandma ‘darling’. sweet no? i want someone who’ll call me sweet things when we’re old and wrinkly too~

 

DSCF2118

jess collecting her scroll from the principal.
aishhh… see people, get to walk down a runway for convocation [jealous]

 

there was a short break then the fashion show commenced!

IMG_0219

as you can see, we didn’t exactly manage to get great seats… :(

 

           WARNING: CRAPLOAD OF PICS AHEAD.

  
i’m trying to include something from every collection and there are a lot.

 

ready, get set… GO!

 

 DSCF2129

can you say buh-ling buh-ling??
if you haven’t seen wolverine, this is what the diamond-girl looks like… except all over!
so chio, no?
this is from eden’s collection
(i’ll name names only if i remember them sorry i left the mag in UT)

 

DSCF2144

run for your liveeessss~!!!
it’s the dark beehive monster!!!
but frankly this futuristic collection is tres cool, she got 3rd i think or 2nd… tak ingat.
(ok i checked, she got 2nd)

 

DSCF2137

i like the lantern?

 


DSCF2151

colours! for a difference.
liked this a lot… 'twas so adorable.
the red dress had a sheer bubble skirt that was really a bubble and it had a black feather boa inside that bounced with her every step. <3
not crazy about the blue tutu though.

 

DSCF2157

mia’s
inspired by the cut of diamonds… i think.

DSCF2159

CUTE!
her whole collection was pastel saccharine sleepwear
…complete with bedroom slippers! :D

 

   DSCF2167

the mad hatter.
gotta love the the hair!

 

DSCF2262

michelle’s melancholia.
this was the first place winner.
dark, it was.

 

DSCF2182

loved this!
pretty iridescents :)
the rest of the collection wasn’t so great though…

 

 DSCF2192

err… no comment.
*cough*tacky*cough*

 

  DSCF2200

once again, no comment!
i don’t want to be mean :(
but c’mon now, what the hell?

 

DSCF2205

um… i guess the previous one softened the blow?

 

DSCF2210

this was one of the ones that stood out amongst the throng of dark corsets and all that black. would be totally cool if they had a WWI fighter jet as a prop!

 

DSCF2215

sigh… black again.
didn’t remember this collection really but in retrospect it’s pretty good :)

 

DSCF2222

tea with the bennets.
most wearable of the lot :)
i think all the normal unfashion people like me fancied this.

 

DSCF2227

something aboriginal.
i chose this instead of the full collection because i wanted to say this model did not look good modelling. there i said it. i’m sorry, but she really didn’t.

 

DSCF2231

sho cute!
this is jamie’s, an ex-schoolmate also.
there was this model who came out with a ginormous paper aeroplane which she threw into the crowd :D

 

eh i very tired edi…
still got more ah?


 DSCF2242

relyn’s
2nd place.
had something to do with paparazzis.
oh and the male model is hawt ;)

 

 DSCF2248

natalie’s

 

DSCF2255

reminds me of the windows icon.
colours are not always good.

 

 

DSCF2267

yahhh the hawt model is wearing ‘NEY’
throw a garish sack on him and it detracts from the hotness.
(are you scrolling back up to check? i know i did)

 

 

aaaand… last but not least,

DSCF2181

jess’s!!!
poetry in motion
(inspired by the forms of architecture… this is where jessmine comes in i suppose :P )
it kinda looks blah here ‘cause you can’t see all the pleating and the details.
but it looks way better in real life! picture doesn’t do it justice.

 

 

the lot of us.

DSCF2288

woah, this is a challenge… naming names.
tintin, marcus, siutheng, hayden, jess, ell, me, huili

 

DSCF2281

finally, DatinLeong and family :D

i would say ‘congratulations’ but that is just wrong now. lol.

 

 

 

phew.
over 50 pics.
