Today we had lunch at Michelle and Troy’s new place for the first time. It’s such a beautiful home, and I’m so happy for them :D I know what it feels like spending months house hunting and being disappointed over and over…but I’m glad everything worked out!
We were treated to a delicious home-made Mexican lunch with tacos and burritos (or in my case sung choi bao ;D) After lunch we explored a bit of their neighborhood since it was close to a large park and near the water which was pretty cool.
When we returned we were all so tired so it was time for a sugar hit! After dessert we played some more of ‘The Resistance’ and as usual the GOOD GUYS NEVER WIN. EVER. *cough* AND MAL IS STILL INNOCENT :’D Oh man, I was such a terrible spy I cringe just thinking about it now, lol.
Thanks again to Mich & Troy for having us over and for their awesome hospitality :D
Today we had Floz’s 30th Birthday lunch at The Butcher’s Apprentice, with the menu from The Butcher’s Block (next door) ;D The highlight was this ginormous sized thick shake *_* Hubby and I got the Peanut Butter one with extra ice-cream and boy was that glorious :’D 10/10 would have again, hehee.
This post will be a review of Sailor Moon Crystal Set 1 Limited Edition DVD/Blu-Ray Combo released by Madman for Australia and New Zealand. I’ve also written up my thoughts on the series itself, but since it’s rather lengthy I will be posting that on a separate post. Keep an eye out for it :)
Sailor Moon Crystal Set 1 contains the entire first season with 14 episodes. It has the original Japanese audio with English subtitles, as well an English dub by Viz Media.
Firstly, let’s take a look at the packaging! (Click on the thumbnails for a larger view)
The shinies are here!! :D Look how pretty they are!
My bro pre-ordered these cute Sailor Moon Communicator Watches for my birthday back in April. The July release date got pushed back, so it took a while for these to arrive from Japan. I wasn’t sure what to expect in terms of quality, since these are capsule toys after all. Would I be able to wear it? Can I use it as a real watch? Would it be too plastic and fragile? Seeing how much I loved the Sailor Moon mirror compacts, I had a feeling everything will be alright :D
Today we hung out with our dear god sister for her 30th birthday last week :D We caught up over lunch at Sushi Tei, which also happens to have a pokestop…so naturally we had one hand throwing pokeballs. Yes, we all play the game. And yes it’s still awesome 8D
Food was delicious. My favourite was the seared scallop sushi (which isn’t pictured D:) and my lychee drink was the best.
Today Hubby and I went to see the beautiful cherry blossoms blooming at the Auburn Botanical Gardens :D The Sydney Cherry Blossom Festival is an annual event but for some reason I always miss it! This time I marked it on my calendar so we wouldn’t forget :)
Credit goes to Hubby for all these amazing photos~
Sydney’s Manga and Anime Show (SMASH!) is here again this weekend at Rosehill Gardens. It’s celebrating its 10 year anniversary, and I can vaguely remember its humble beginnings back in 2007. It sure has come a long way from being an event with 1000 attendees to over 10,000. This year I was lucky enough to win a double weekend pass to SMASH, so I took this opportunity to wear my Gothic Lolita dress one last time :)
I wasn’t interested in getting autographs this year as I didn’t know any of the special guests. I spent most of the time wandering around the exhibitor area and checking out the artist alley. As always, cosplays are fun to see :D Hubby took most of these pictures (I snapped the Sailor Moon ones XD):
Winter is almost over, woo! Well at least today was pretty nice :D (I’m still wrapped up in a big fluffy robe as we speak). Kaz & Jia had us over for lunch today, and it was the first time they utilized that nice outdoor alfresco area. Kaz made some pretty tasty rice paper rolls. There was also baked fish, salad, mashed potatoes, chicken nuggets and a bunch of nibbles :D
I swear every time us girls get together, there’s some weird as topics that come up…”The earth is flat” and “dead bodies float” were the winners this time.. proudly brought to you by Helen.
After eating, we went back inside for some Chinese tea and some rounds of ‘The Resistance’. The game play was exactly the same as ‘Avalon’. After a quick google it turns out Avalon is just a variation of The Resistance ~ I KNEW IT! XD As you know, I love playing these types of games so it was pretty fun even though I lost every round. It’s hard winning this game when you’re the ‘good guy’ ;D
Another great catch-up! Next one’s at Michelle’s :D
