A Whole New World ~ Aladdin The Musical

18th March 2017

Dear Chibi,

Aladdin Musical @Captiol Theatre Sydney

Last night Kaz and I got to see Disney’s Aladdin musical performed at the beautiful Capitol Theatre. We were on the third row seating near the middle, so our view was amazing! WE COULD SEE ALL THE DETAILS! I’ve never sat so close to the front before and it really makes a huge difference seeing all the characters faces and expressions. There’s so much glitter and sparkles (It almost got blinding at times). We also had streamers falling over us. I was thoroughly impressed by the production quality, the special effects and all the backdrops left me in awe. There was just so much energy from the cast it made for a very fun evening :D Of course, the humor was brilliant also. The Genie stole the show, but other characters also had their moments (Iago cracks me up) I had a grin on my face the entire night and now my cheeks slightly hurt ^^” All in all, I had a fantastic night :D

Aladdin Musical

Best scene hands-down was the MAGIC CARPET SCENE OMG IT WAS BEAUTIFUL :’D Even sitting so closely, it was hard to see it being hung on anything. I also loved the cave scene, that was really spectacular.

Escaping the rain~ Another day in Adelaide

15th March 2017

Dear Chibi,

Another day in Adelaide

There’s been so much rain in Sydney lately~ I’ve been getting good use out of my gumboots. Today I flew to Adelaide again for another business trip. Day trips feel pretty exhausting when you have to get up at 4.30am. I wonder if I’ll ever get used to this..?

It was pouring again as per usual, so I was slightly relieved to escape the dull weather in Sydney and into the sunny warm Adelaide. My favourite part of the day is breakfast because that’s when I start to feel alive XD The business trip went well and I’m so glad to be home :D Okay, back to bed.. ZZZzzz…

The Secret Garden Photo Shoot

12th March 2017

Dear Chibi,
It’s been wet and gloomy the past 2 weeks, so it was quite refreshing to get some sunshine this weekend (I’m very pleased about the laundry XD) We didn’t have any special plans, so Hubby suggested we go for a little photo shoot session :) Hubby discovered this hidden gem which we’ve dubbed “The Secret Garden”. It feels so peaceful and secluded~

I love how the photos turned out. Hubby is such an amazing photographer <3

Mono Girls Catch Up Lunch @The Garden

5th March 2017

Dear Chibi,

I’m back from our Mono girls catch-up lunch at The Garden in Wests Ashfield Leagues Club. Our last reunion was 5 years ago, so quite a lot has changed since. I’m not active on Facebook, so imagine my surprise when I learned a few were pregnant!! How exciting!

I had to leave around 2.30pm so I didn’t get a chance to talk to everyone. There’s just so much catching up to do! Still, it makes me happy to know they are all doing so well :) Thanks Lemon for organising. All the best with the babies, ladies!!

Sailor Moon S Part 1 Limited Edition DVD Review

25th February 2017

Dear Chibi,

Sailor Moon S Part 1 DVD Madman

After a one and a half year wait since Sailor Moon R part 2, Sailor Moon S part 1 is finally here!! :D This is my review of Madman’s Australian and New Zealand release, which contains Viz Media’s new English dub along with the original Japanese audio. This is the 5th volume of the set and contains 19 episodes on 3 discs. Only 5 volumes to go!

See my review of Sailor Moon: Part 1 & Part 2
Sailor Moon R: Part 1 & Part 2

Sailor Moon S is my second favourite season (just behind Sailor Stars) and introduces two new outer senshi Sailor Uranus & Sailor Neptune. The popularity of the third season is largely due to this pair, and it’s not hard to see why. THEY ARE JUST. SO. COOL. And ruthless. They also happen to be lovers. What makes this release special is that we finally have an English uncut version that aims to preserve the integrity of the original Japanese scripts. They are no longer “cousins” (Which is pretty hilarious.. xD). This is long overdue, don’t you think? ;)

Newway & Alex get Hitched

19th February 2017

Dear Chibi,

Newway and Alex have been an item for the longest time. Travelling, moving to London, doing long distance.. they’ve done it all. I’m so happy these two are finally tying the knot and that we get to be a part of their special day.

I’ve known Newway since High School~ she was the tiniest one in our group, the most creative, the smartest and the fastest (oh can she run with those little legs!) Although she’s stronger and tougher than she looks, she’ll always be our little Bert. Alex, please take good care of her :3

Despite the thunderstorm and pouring rain, they braved through it all to pledge their lives to each other. Nothing could stop the smiles on their faces. What a beautiful ceremony.

The ceremony was held at Sawmillers Reserve, McMahons Point at 4pm. When Hubby and I arrived it had just started sprinkling.

Newway’s Hens Party

5th February 2017

Dear Chibi,

Our little Newbert is finally getting married. Yesterday was Newway’s Bachelorette Party. When we arrived, we each made our own flower crown which was pretty fun~ except no one knew how to actually make it, and we only had sticky tape to hold it together XD. Nevertheless, some managed to put together some really pretty crowns! I stuck too much tape on mine and it didn’t work out. Oh wells, a few flowers on my head it is :’D

A day in Adelaide

18th January 2017

hehe, that sort of rhymes..

Dear Chibi,

Today I’m spending the day in Adelaide, my first time on a business trip~ yay :D I’m on the plane at the moment typing away on my laptop, while my 2 colleagues are taking a nap next to me. Maybe I should be catching up on some sleep too ^^” Waking up early is always the tricky part, but I don’t do this often, so I’m not gonna complain :) I woke up at 4.30am and had 1 good hour before my cab arrives. The funny thing about early mornings is seeing my cat half asleep and confused on the stairway. He’s also torn between his desire for food and the need to snooze. Alas, he end up following me to the kitchen, even though I didn’t have food for him. AHAHA. Aww poor cat. Sorry Champy :’D

The ride to the airport was pretty smooth. I arrived at 6am and had 30 mins for breakfast. Toasted ham cheese croissant and vanilla chai latte it was! At this point, I am feeling great! Will this energy and excitment carry me through the day? I sure hope so because it’s gonna be a long one. I will be flying back later tonight; no luxury for an overnight stay ;D. Unfortunately, I will also be missing out on my Grandma’s birthday dinner.

Hopefully I’ll be able to take a few snaps during the day. Guess we’ll see ;D (Didn’t get the window seat)
