JKBBQ & Exciting news!

Paws up!

Hello there, blog readers! Let's start off with what I wore today.

The weather in melbourne is finally starting to pick up and it was quite sunny today.
Anyway, I'll just try and do another quick summary of what I've been up to these past few days. Gonna put the exciting news at the end of the blog so you HAVE to read my post. mwuahaha!


On Sunday I finally picked up the contacts that I won from the Ma Couleurs competition. I got a pair of Princess Mimi grey ones, i've never had a pair of grey ones before so I decided to give them a shot.

Here's what they look like, excuse the dopey face. haha!


Now other than wear contact lenses and refer to herself in third person, what does Carrie do with her life?

The answer is eat, eat, eat and drink.
I've been eating heaps of food these past few days, I'm scared i'll wake up fat one day! So as usual here is the food porn.


On thursday night, My sister and I took our parents to one of my favourite Japanese restaurants for my Dad's birthday. All the food and meat there is amazing, I savoured every single bite. It was so delicious we even had to play games of rock, paper, scissors just to decide who got the last or largest pieces of meat. haha!


I was also invited to go have Korean BBQ with my friends at a place called Seoul Restaurant, which meant even more meat! YAY! It was nice, the pork belly was the best in my opinion though! 


Taking a break from all the bbq and meat, I also went to have some ramen at Ramen Ya in the GPO. I went with some uni friends and it was pretty good, I especially liked the soup base but I enjoyed the fact I have uni friends to hang out with even more! Woo!


 I also ate dumplings at Shanghai Village, the place was SO packed. It's one of those chinese places in the alleyways that are super popular with people but the service is shit and the food is cheap and pretty tasty. Y'know those kinds of places?....

We finished off the dumplings with a drink at Little Creatures in Brunswick. Their beer and cider are really nice and they're from Victoria also.


Alright! Now for the BIG NEWS!

After a late breakfast and some tea at Knox, my boyfriend and I went around to some travel agents because......WE'RE GOING TO HONG KONG AND CHINA IN DECEMBER!

That's right, bitches! I'll be going overseas for the first time EVER at the end of this year with my gorgeous boyfriend. I'm so excited I could die!

Which brings me to ask...What's some fun stuff to do in Hong Kong, any recommendations? 
Please comment  if you've been and have any suggestions.


That's all for now. Bye-bye.

久しぶり!Long time no blog, eh? (pics heavy)

Hey guys, remember me??

I'm sorry I haven't blogged for such a long time but it's been a pretty busy past 2 weeks. To avoid unnecessary jibber-jabber, i'll just be summarise as much as I can.



For those of you who have been following the Ma Couleurs competition! I came third! The claire chibi girl came second and Rena Chan Le came first! Congratulations, she deserved it!


So I've been eating some pretty good dinners and lunches with some awesome people lately.

Some bibimbap with my uni friends in Box Hill. Wish there was more meat!

Hooked's fish & chips and tea on Chapel St

Delicious steak & chips made by my talented boyfriend.

This however deserves a little more than a caption. This huge amount of wings (this is only a fraction of them) is from a place in Melbourne called Crazy Wings. They are famous for having these INCREDIBLY hot chicken wings that for some insane reason my boyfriend enjoys eating.....I on the other hand had a lick and dashed for a glass of water. My boyfriend, his friend and I ate A FUCK LOAD of food that night.

But the weirdest thing I ate would probably be this.....Given to me by a friend they are these jelly beans that are filled with both nice flavours and DISGUSTING ones and you can't tell which is which!

I ate a mouldy cheese and some other disgusting flavour which I think was baby wipes or something. BLECH!


 Speaking of weird though, I noticed these signs in Box Hill and just had to show everyone.....

Aren't they the most random thing you've ever seen on the inside of a tunnel....The last one says 'He is on his way with the mao (cat)


I think that I've finally decided I'm not the clubbing type...A lot of people tell me I look it but my experiences suggest otherwise.
A while ago my friend and I went to this club called Alumbra for a friend's birthday. It's quite a strict club so my friend got kicked out 'cos he got mistaken for someone who threw up in the bathroom so we all decided to leave as well. We salvaged the night with a fun trip to Crown Casino though.

This is what I wore that night, ignore my messy bedroom!


Finally! I attended the Melbourne International Film Festival with my friend Hieu (his blog is here).

We watched a documentary about Elmo! It was delightful and for the first time I sat in a completely full cinema. It was a new and wonderful viewing context.


Now for those of you who still have the little kid spirit, you'd be delighted to know that Hieu was able to hook me and my friends up to have a look at an art exhibition at Federation Square on.......
LEGO ! !

There were incredible pieces created entirely from Lego, it blew my mind! The 2nd photo is a model of Melbourne!


There was even a section where you can try to make your own lego creations.

1. is my twin sister's, 2 is Hieu's and the last one is my friend, Christian's.
Which one do you like the most?!

Sadly, I suck at lego and other than what I called my avant garde car, I could only make my name! Haha!


Anyway that's all! I'll try to blog more from now on.
