today i introduced Steph to boggle. she's downloaded it straight away >.<
i received a lovely sample ring from GFA today. it was really lovely, just nice for Spring :)
it was to match the bangles we ordered. it comes in 3 colours..... isn't it prrreeeettyyy??
today just like every monday i had trouble waking up and pulled out what i thought was just easy and comfortable. a simple black dress and a comfy cardigan.
have you ever gone shopping, spent heaps of money but came home empty handed? that's what me & D did yesterday. we spotted this buffet for our place at the right price with the right design and decided that we better get it before it sells out. then while moving around our furniture to imagine placing an extra chair in our living room, we noticed our coffee table legs were cracked. o_O sheesh.... when we found the coffee table we wanted on sale, our table was fine. now that the sale is over... we need to get one. *smacks heads*
so after a couple of hours shopping and spending money.... we still walked home empty handed. all the items we wanted were in the warehouses and had to wait to pick them up. not fun at all..... sulks.....
gizzy went for a hygiene groom and now he is all fluffy and white... and now his hair is floating around the house -_-

being the main chef in the house, it's up to me to make our meals a little more interesting and when i spotted this big with BIG pictures, i couldn't resist. it ever thought me how to cut a whole chicken right..... i still can't get it right though. o_O i normally rely on the internet but it gets boring after a while.
now to try new recipes.... too bad D was in Melbourne right after the weekend -_- today i finally tried my first recipe from the book.
this was the recipe....and this is my dish
not bad right? it's amazing what a little sprinkling of spring onions would do to make the dish look so much nicer. and it actually tastes good too.... kylie kwong's book - awesomeness!

now the fisherman's wharf seafood restaurant at the sydney fish market was at a completely different level. the lobster noodle was..... oooo laa laa... i couldn't resist no taking a picture before we ate.
even thinking about it makes me "lou hou sui" (drip saliva) ... and i was lucky enough to pack some leftovers home for dinner. my cravings for seafood has been satisfied.... for a while at least :D

now to bring back some colour into my closet after a black and grey season i've had.
*can you see the extra meat in my cheeks.....OH NOOOOooooooooo*
like yo! inflation is every year... does that mean coz i'll be doing the same thing for the business i'll never get paid more? i don't think the business will really ever hit budget with the way they spend money.. OMG! bleed....i seriously need to figure out how to make money elsewhere...do something myself or find another job. haihz... sien.

rolling stones diamonte tee from stylesofia, shorts from SUPRÉ, stockings from RUBI, bangle a gift
can you see the bling? she has a lot more awesome pieces. check out www.stylesofia.com for their edgy, vintage inspired pieces. thanks my dear for keeping this for me!! much love xoxo
the 2 leads had amazing voices; one more annoying than the other .. hehe but fits her character extremely well. the green witch has such a captivating voice that everytime she sung i just sat at the edge of my seat trying to go closer :D
they sold really cute soveniors for the show. the had green lens glasses, witch hats, jewelry with shoes and stuff and of course the standard mugs, t-shirts and program books. D was asking if i wanted a program book, i just think it's a waste of money coz we won't do anything to it after the show. so instead... we got this.
it was a glass with lights!! it came with a slurpee like drink and the light changes colour! hahaha just like kids we kept flickering the light until we heard the lady telling people to turn off the light >.< hehe
the story happens long before dorothy drops in. 2 girls meet in the land of Oz; one born with emerald green skin and is smart fiery and misunderstood. the other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. Wicked tells the story of their remarkable odyssey, how there 2 unlikely friends grop to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.
if you haven't seen it, you definitely should!

dress from ebay, hat from the markets, knee high socks from SUPRÉ, boots from Betts
looking at this outfit, it does look a little 60s. think i'm missing the sleek, bambi eyed look though.
it's actually just down the road from where i live. hahaha took us a while to find parking. had to queue before we went in but not for long.... then it was SHOE HEAVEN! we didn't know where to start! i have to say that they arranged everything very well. all the sizes were put into aisles so you just had to walk down the aisle and see what they have in your size. there were heaps of staff and very friendly & helpful too. i can imagine the mess they must be going through and crazy customers (experience of the FJ Benjamin days). So did i find anything i like?? OF COURSE!! as if i won't come home with a new pair of shoes >.<
the packaging is so pretty. it's like buying a little present for yourself - there's a bow on the bag and on the box so when you go home and open it... it makes you feel all happy inside. hehehe well new shoes will do it anyway! :D
my "miss Lmanema" in cream for $50. i'm soooo happy!!!

outfit from SUPRÉ, heels from Guess?
p/s - i only took off my jumper to take the shot...even though the sun was out it was still winter!
while watching TV yesterday, i heard this crunching sound. worried that he had got hold of something he wasn't suppose to have i saw this.
he ate half of it. yes, he has destroyed his favourite ball o_O and look who else is dead....
the destroyer strikes again!!
