Seafood Sunday!

May 1st, 2016

Dear Chibi,

Last night I saw pictures of juicy fresh oysters my parents-in-law had posted and I suddenly had an oyster craving myself. So today, Hubby took me to the Sydney Fish Markets for some fresh seafood goodness! :D We also bought some salmon to take home, for Hubby to make delicious sushi for dinner. My favourite!

Afterward, we went swimming again (second time in three days) and started to learn freestyle, woo! I’m still practising breaststroke of course ;D

I also have an exciting news to share~ my sister-in-law Sandra gave birth to a baby boy yesterday :D! I didn’t expect it to be so soon!! Congrats to both Alan and Sandra! Can’t wait to meet little Chrono 8D (His name hasn’t been decided yet so we’ll just call him baby Chrono Chan for now)

Dear Chibi,

Today Kaz invited us girls over to her place to watch her full Wedding Day video! It’s almost 5 months since her big day, yet everything still feels very fresh in my mind (Guess that’s what happens when you blog it ;D You can read the full thing here.)

Anzac Day BBQ @Blaxland Riverside Park

April 25th, 2016

Dear Chibi,

Today we had a BBQ with the uni guys over at Blaxland Riverside Park. Not sure if it’s due to the public holiday (or if this is just the norm XD) but there were sooooOOo many people! Good thing Ray arrived early to save us a spot near the waterfront :D

It was a really really nice day! Somps and Dong also brought Yuki along so we spent a lot of time playing with her. To my surprise, I wasn’t afraid of Yuki at all this time :O I even took her for a walk (or more like she took me for a run :P)

“An Evening of Final Fantasy” @Sydney Opera House

April 10th, 2016

Dear Chibi,

Today Hubby and I went to see “An Evening of Final Fantasy” presented by Nathankct and Joelle at the Sydney Opera House. A big thank you to the kind folks at The Japan Foundation Sydney, for giving away a free double pass :D (Tickets are normally $79-$99) We attended the 3.30pm session at the Utzon Room, where we also saw Emily, Mel, MZ, Amy, Somps, Dong and co.

I’ve previously seen 2 other Final Fantasy music performances; “Distant Worlds” in 2011, and “A Night in Fantasia” (so long ago I can’t even remember when ;D)  This will be our first time seeing a solo pianist and vocalist.

An evening of final fantasy NATHANKCT and joelle

“Nathankct, performing on grand piano, in collaboration with international star vocalist JOELLE, seeks to delight and entertain, translating the personal into the universal through his own arrangements of both classics and rarely heard gems from Final Fantasy I through XIII; Performing one night only in the unique and intimate Utzon Room of the Sydney Opera House, and with iconic views of art, and windows looking out to the ocean.”

It’s been one year, Champy :3

April 9th, 2016

Dear Chibi,

Today marks a full year since we’ve had Champy :D! It’s been a fun ride, little one. Just need you to be less anti-social around others and stop thinking about food all the time ;p

My first lap ever

April 9th, 2016

Dear Chibi,

Last night I managed to breaststroke across a whole 25m pool in one go, yaaaaaaay :D!! This is my biggest achievement in the pool so far and it’s such a great feeling ^___^ I still have so much to improve on, but I know that I will only get better with practise. Yesterday I swam 20 laps (mostly in parts). I’m hoping I’ll be able to do entire laps consistently.

YOU CAN DO THIS CHIBI!

:D

Moon Kaleidoscope Proplica April Fools Prank

April 3rd, 2016

Dear Chibi,

I’m not usually a fan of April Fools, but this year I was tempted to try something myself. The idea came to mind because so much Sailor Moon merchandise have been released over the last 3 years, and so much more are coming. I wondered if I’d be able to convince people of this new Proplica of the “Moon Kaleidoscope”?

Sailor Moon Moon Kaleidoscope Proplica April Fools

I quickly photoshopped this image together while I was at work (bad, I know :P) This beautiful 3D render of the Moon Kaleidoscope is actually created by digitalAuge. The background was ripped off an official proplica image, and I slapped on Sailor Moon’s 20th Anniversary logo and added a fine print. Of course, the fine print in the real promos are in Japanese ;D

Some hearts were broken, but I hope they understand there was no ill-intent. I’m 99% sure a real ‘Moon Kaleidoscope’ proplica will be announced in the near future. Can’t wait to see what that will look like, heeheee ^^

Seven Mile Beach & the Pipis

March 29th, 2016

Dear Chibi,

Last weekend Hubby and I spent our Easter Sunday down south at Kiama and Seven Mile Beach. For some reason, the forecast is always rain over Easter, but luckily for us it was all dry when we arrived (It was raining pretty hard on our way there)
