Lei ho ma, Girl? (HK TRIP)

I'm still alive, readers!
Did any of you miss me?.......

In case you didn't know I've been on holiday! I went to Hong Kong with my boyfriend. I'm currently in Wuhan, which is in China and where my boyfriend grew up. 

Hong Kong was very exciting, it was my first time travelling overseas. We left Melbourne, arrived in a rainy Sydney and then hopped on a plane towards Hong Kong! :)

The view from the plane window.

We did a lot of random stuff in Hong Kong. We shopped a lot, explored a lot and played a lot of arcade games. 

We mostly ate though!!

There were a lot more things we did, like eat at Caprice at the Four Seasons, watch the fireworks from The Peak and go to Madam Tussauds.

Lady Gaga!


Finally after a few hours of waiting at Hung Hom station we made our way to China. :)

A really rushed blog, i'll write more about China and upload more photos when I get home.

Elementary, my dear blog readers!

An old photo because I didn't take one today, I don't know how Victoria Secret angels make winking so easy and sexy....I end up looking like the hugest derp ever.

Anyway back on to topic.


On Saturday, my boyfriend only had a 5 hour shift at work so I just decided to stay around where he works. I had a really big long lunch and then I caught a movie at the Hoyts.

I was lucky enough to catch the new Sherlock Holmes movie. I love Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law, they're so good together and the movie is even better than the previous. I highly recommend you watch it if you enjoyed the last one. Watching a movie by yourself is not as sad and lonely as you think! It's fine if you're really absorbed in the film, don't judge me. :(


On Monday I ended up going to my friend's farm with a group of friends. It was my second time up there and I had quite a nice time.

Here's the some of the farm.....and that's my friend.

There's quite a bit to do up there. There's a pool table inside, and a motorbike that you can try and ride. I didn't try because I'm obviously not strong enough to even support the bike and I can not drive anything manual. 

Basically the only ones who could ride it properly were of course my friend who owned the farm and my sister's boyfriend (in the photo), he loves bikes. 

That's them two...riding off into the sunset. haha

When it got a bit later we built a fire as well, it was pretty exciting! 

This is some wine that's from the farm, it was really young but I enjoyed sipping it by the fire. :)

We pretty much ended up just chilling by the fire roasting marshmallows and cooking sausages until late into the night,  all whilst being serenaded by my friend's acoustic guitar. Once it got super dark we went into the house, I made everyone burgers (which were....okay?), lit all the candles in the house and we talked until it got late.


That was pretty much a nice end to my holiday, I'm back at work now and i'll be back at work until Saturday. After that I'll be leaving for Hong Kong on Monday and spending some well deserved quality time with the boy! I'm super excited but I have this irrational fear of dying or getting in an accident before I can leave! D:

Thanks for reading though! See you next blog.

A big "Thank You!"

Bonjour Mon ami~
As promised I'm making an effort to blog more. This blog is mainly about all the wonderful presents I received this year for Christmas. I'm so thankful and happy this year, I don't think I've ever received this many presents for Christmas.

The first present, you can already see in my picture above. It's a MAC lipstick from my twin sister. I adore the colour and wear it all the time now!

These are ankle boots from Santini from my mum! They're not very high but I thought I needed more practical shoes and these are quite cute as well.

This gorgeous little dress is from my friend Andy. It's such an adorable dress, I can't wait to wear it more often.

Finally this was a really sweet present from my friend Alison who recently came back from the States. She bought me an Alice in Wonderland tea from Disneyland! It's a gorgeous black tea. I'll definitely have to have my own Mad Tea Party soon. 

There are other presents I received as well! They're all equally as loved! I just haven't had time to take photos of all of them yet. Thank you so much though!


The 4th was also my friend, Bernard's birthday. To celebrate we all went to Albion Hotel in Port Melbourne to have their Parma.

We had some tea at Max Brenners before hand though.

This was their Aussie parma. It was fucking huge but it was just okay. I was pretty pissed off I paid extra for aioli for my chips and it was crappy.....Oh well. At least I was very full and satisfied. I enjoyed spending time with my friends and just joking around more than the food.


Other than that I had lunch with my family in Box Hill at some Korean/Japanese place called 3 Kingdoms

This is my Bi Bim Bap, it was in serious need of more meat!

I also went to the market in Footscray with my mum. There was produce and vietnamese men yelling everywhere.

In between all of this I've just been eating and getting fat. My mum finally bought some Brie, crackers and olive paste. It's soooooo good. I do like cheese and crackers. :D


Thanks for reading! See you next blog.
