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.
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
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)
At long last I finally completed my Pokedex from Gen 1 that’s been released in my region :D (I know, this is way late!) For the longest time I was praying for a Lapras and waiting for a Charizard. Recently, they added a few more baby Pokemon from Gen 2, which can only be obtained by egg hatching. I’m missing Clefa, Electakid, Togepi and Togetic, though it’s all just a matter of time. I’ve also maxed out all my upgrades, which is pretty sweet :)
I spent most of the week sick at home…but I’ve started to feel better just in time for Somps and Dong’s 30th birthday this weekend. They held a BBQ at their place with around 30 people. It was a pretty hot day! Actually this whole weeks been super hot @.@” I can’t wait till summer’s over that’s for sure.
On our way there, we were unfortunately involved in a car accident when a car popped out of nowhere and crashed into us >.< Thankfully no one was hurt, and the damage was relatively minor. We’ll need to get the car fixed sometime next week. I’m just glad we’re all okay. It was pretty scary :(
Yesterday I spent the day hanging out with cBsM at Gary’s place. Gary and Ange finally moved back to Sydney into their new apartment in Hornsby. Closer, but still far for me XD. It took me close to 2 hours to get there by train, but hey I don’t do this often.
Ange had a little herb garden on her balcony, and the variety of stuff she’s growing is actually quite impressive. They’re gonna need a bigger pot (or balcony) in no time ^^”
When Burpy & Buns finally arrived, we went out to Hornsby Westfields for brunch, just a short walk across the road. I got myself a mini burrito since I wasn’t that hungry. This Westfield sort of reminds me of Castle Towers.
Happy New Years Eve! The last day of 2016 is here… and what better time to reflect back on the last 366 days? 2016 has been one of the biggest years for Hubby and I. We achieved a life long dream of buying our own house :) It’s something we both worked hard towards our entire life and sometimes it still feels like a dream. All those sleepless nights, the sacrifices, the weekends devoted to house inspections and auctions has finally paid off…We did it!!! :D :D :D
This year, I also changed career paths. I did a bit of soul searching and really thought about where I wanted to go and what would make me happy. It’s been a difficult journey, but Hubby has been my greatest support through all the ups and downs. I’m so thankful to have him by my side :) I’m enjoying my new role and look forward to learning lots more in the coming year.
It’s time for our annual Seramyu viewing again! This year’s performance is titled “Amour Eternal” based on the 4th season known as SuperS/Dream Arc. Fans don’t often quote the 4th season as their favourite, but it’s still enjoyable nevertheless and has a fun group of villains. I’m so glad the Outer Senshi return, because I loved them so much in ‘Un Nouveau Voyage’!
Before we started, I made spaghetti bolognese for lunch and Kat brought along a plate of spinach cob dip! Yum!
