Reaching level 37

23rd April 2017

Dear Chibi,

I’ve recently reached level 37 (while Hubby’s at 38!) Level 38 is the cap for powering-up, so anything beyond that is just for bragging rights.

Seeing the Sunrise

16th April 2017

Dear Chibi,

For our 10 year anniversary, Hubby and I got up nice and early to watch the sunrise together :3 We’ve never actually done this before with just the two of us (sounds crazy, right?) This just shows that no matter how long you’ve been with someone, there’s always new experiences and beautiful memories to be made. So much is waiting for us :)

A Decade Together

15th April 2017

Dear Chibi,

Today marks my 10 years with Hubby.

We started dating back in 2007 when I was 19. We met during the first week of Uni and I still remember what he wore down to the details on his shoes. What was that feeling? There was something about him that I was instantly attracted to. Was it that serious face he had? Or perhaps the crazy spiky hair? I don’t know. All I know was that I always wanted to be near him. Sometimes we didn’t even talk. We never called each other by our names either. It was usually a casual “wai”, but I liked it. I always looked forward to our little interactions each day. We were friends in the same CoFA group for 2 years, and I tried so hard to pretend I wasn’t interested in him. I guess I was scared he didn’t feel the same way about me. Yet, he was my confidant. I wanted to share everything with him…

When he finally asked me out, my heart was racing so fast I could hardly breathe. I said to the guy I was crushing on for 2 years “I’ll think about it…”.

HAH. I am so weird sometimes :’D

I’ve always been serious about relationships, and I knew that if I was going to date someone, it had to be someone really special~ Someone I can see myself spending the rest of my life with. Who knew the 19 year old me had such an amazing judgement? ;D 8 years later, I married him. He’s been my man for 10 years.

Thank you Hubby for loving me for who I am.
Thank you for staying by my side and always being the one I can lean on.
Thank you for making me a better person. I’ve leveled-up so much because of you.
You’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

I love you~ today, tomorrow and for the rest of our lives. I promise.

10 years

Happy Anniversary <3

Seeing Gus Fring @ Los Pollos Hermanos Sydney Pop-Up

11th April 2017

Dear Chibi,

Today I got to see Giancarlo Esposito in person, or better known as Gus Fring from ‘Breaking Bad’ & ‘Better Call Saul’ :D To promote Better Call Saul season 3, Potts Point’s ‘Thirsty Bird’ chicken shop was transformed into the fictional ‘Los Pollos Hermanos’ and Gus himself would be there to open the shop. HOW COOL IS THAT?

Around 11.45pm, my workmate and I both snuck out of the office to catch a train to Kings Cross. As expected, the pop-up store drew a large crowd and the queue was huggggeeee. First 700 people got free fried chicken, curly fries and a drink. That’s pretty sweet, but since it was a work day and all… it just wasn’t possible for us to line up ^^” So instead, we opted to stand around the entrance hoping to catch a glimpse of Gus himself~ and of course we did!

Emily’s Farewell @Baekjung Korean BBQ

10th April 2017

Dear Chibi,

Today Hubby and I went to Emily’s Farewell lunch at Baekjung Korean BBQ in Eastwood. I end up getting to bed around 2am last night, so I woke up feeling exhausted and fatigued. 2am may not seem like much, but when you’re almost 30.. YOU CAN DEFINITELY FEEL IT XD.

We arrived at noon and there wasn’t a table long enough to fit everyone, so Hubby, Marcus and I sat separately. The food was really tasty! I liked the cheese corn and the salad the most… Okay, okay~ the meat as well X3

We talked all sorts of nerdy things like gaming, anime & the NBA 8D (Durant is finally back, yay!) With the play-offs just around the corner, things are getting pretty exciting. We’ll see how the next few months unfold :O *fingers crossed for a Warriors Championship*

Some photos from the day:

Safe travels Emily!! Hope you have an amazing time in Europe, I’m sure it’ll be a great adventure and you’ll come back with plenty of stories :)

Mal’s 30th Birthday

9th April 2017

Dear Chibi,

Last night Mal invited us over for dinner for our usual catch-up with the girls and boys. Mal’s parents prepared a delicious meal for us and we spent the night catching up, eating good food and drinking expired wine (Courtesy of Helen ;D).

Our dear Mal is also turning 30 (It’s today!)

I’ve known Mal since she was 12. We became friends in 8th grade, and she was basically my bestie for most of my High School life. I’m so grateful that after all these years, we still hang out like the old days (minus the studying). Thank you Mal for being the beautiful person you are. I hope you had an amazing birthday and thanks everyone for another great evening :)

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
