Closure…

21st November 2016

Dear Chibi,

I saw her on the news today. My childhood friend who vanished one morning on her way to school back in 1998. It’s been 18 years. She would have been 30 this year~ maybe even married with kids.

Her birthday was 12th May.
It was easy to remember because it was similar to mine.
We were in the same class in 3-4C. She was one year above me.
I didn’t have many friends, and she was the first person to call me her best friend.
When she moved schools, we wrote letters to each other.
The last letter I ever received from her was in 1998.

I don’t remember much anymore, but I will never forgot her.

Rest in Peace Quanne.

Your Lie in April

Your Lie In April - Kousei and Kaori

Dear Chibi,

“Your Lie in April” (Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso) follows the story of Kousei Arima a former piano prodigy who, after the death of his mother, can no longer hear the sound of his piano. Kousei views the world in monochrome until he meets Kaori Miyazono, a free-spirited violinist whose playing style reflects her manic personality. His once monotonous life was about to change forever.

This is a review of Madman’s Australian/NZ limited Bluray release, which comes with a special collector’s art box and 6 gorgeous art cards. (Click on the thumbnails for a larger view)

What initially attracted me to this series was the gorgeous art-style found typically in shoujo-manga (Look at those sparkly eyes!) I was pretty surprised to hear this one’s actually a shounen (There is no fan-service what-so-ever. What a refreshing change!). The backgrounds and visuals are captivating~ I particularly love their lighting and parallax effects (also featured on the main-menu) I’m constantly in awe! A-1 Pictures has done an excellent job on the animation.

Once Upon Au Time~ James & Steph’s Wedding

13th November 2016

Dear Chibi,

Yesterday it was an absolute delight witnessing James & Stephanie tie the knot :) They held a beautiful intimate wedding at The Atrium at The Grounds of Alexandria. Hubby met James a few years ago at work, and quickly became one of his best mates and friend for life. Hubby often brings up all the silly mischief him and the ‘Boisenberg’ get up to, and I just know how much of an honor it was for him to be his groomsmen.

Since Hubby was part of the Bridal Party, he had to leave earlier for location shoots. I got to the venue myself via public transport though I did get a bit lost at the station. The Google Maps navigator kept spinning around and I didn’t know which way I was facing (lol, fail XD) I eventually found my way thanks to the Pokemon Gym conveniently located at the venue, ahAhaha ;D

I arrived just around 5.10pm. James, Hubby and Horace were up at the front looking snazzy ;D Guests were starting to be seated for the 5.30pm start.

Good-bye to the old days

11th November 2016

Dear Chibi,

Today I caught up with my good o’ pals Roy & Robbie at Redoak Boutique Beer Cafe for lunch. I have missed hanging out with these guys! It reminded me of the early days when I first started at DDB~ all those late nights and weekend work were made bearable because of these two.

End of one chapter and onto the next!

10th November 2016

Dear Chibi,
Today was my last day at work. It’s been three years, huh? It feels much longer than that. New career path, new environment, new people and new experiences~ Change is always a little bit scary, but I’m gonna give it my best shot :)

Oh, and here’s my farewell card I got today. heh 8D

Farewell Card

Shopping for Mum’s Birthday

6th November 2016

Dear Chibi,

Today is mum’s birthday. With my bro in Melbourne for Pax this weekend, Kaz and I took mum out shopping at Miranda Westfields. We had lunch at ‘Kelly’s Bar and Grill’ which was inside the shopping centre (in a very hidden spot, mind you ;D). It wasn’t too busy in here which was good for us. Food was quite tasty though that Seafood platter is probably not worth $49..just saying ;p

Meeting Max & Tifa

30th October 2016

Dear Chibi,

Ever since we had Champy, Kaz was super keen on getting a cat of her own. Kaz and Jia recently adopted two sibling kitties, a grey tabby and a black cat which they named Max & Tifa. Hubby and I got to meet them for the first time yesterday, and they were so cute X3 They are currently 10 weeks old.

Max is a shy little scaredy cat, while Tifa is like the sassy older sister. Except she looks dopey. All. The. Time. XD Just look at those funny face :’D

MZ’s 30th Birthday @Cookies Lounge Bar

22nd October 2016

Dear Chibi,

Today we celebrated MZ’s 30th birthday with lunch at ‘Cookies Lounge Bar’ in North Strathfield. I kept thinking we would be having cookies but its all a lieeeee ;p. I ordered a chicken schnitzel & a lemon lime bitters. It end up costing me $10 thanks to MZ’s voucher. Thanks MZ :D After lunch, we moved next door to ‘Cheeky Chocolate Room’ for some sweet drinks.

 

Hubby couldn’t join us since he had Tough Mudder for James’s bucks. I hope he’s having a good time :3
