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 :)
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.
The highlight of the trip was here. This is the first time I’ve ever been to Wet’n’Wild or to any water park really. I’ve never been a huge fan of being under the sun all day and my fear of heights didn’t help either. But ever since 2009 when I overcame my fear of roller coasters, I knew it was a matter of time I’d take on this challenge. Huge water slides look daunting to me, but my mindset has completely changed.
When Hubby and I arrived at Wet’n’Wild, I thought to myself “Wow, that’s really high!” and not “I’m not going on that”. With Hubby by my side, I honestly feel like I can do anything. He makes me a better person, and I’m more brave and confident because of him :)
All these photos were taken at the end of the day when it was closing, which explains why it looks gloomy and empty XD We didn’t want to waste any time and went straight for the queues. We even skipped lunch!
Firstly, we floated around in these soft tubes as a warm up for the big rides. This was pretty relaxing, though it’s very shallow so you have to be careful not to scrape yourself.
It was another hot summer day, and the ground was burning!! We went in between rides on bare foot, so we totally felt the pain :’D Although we came on a Monday, it was still heaps busy with many school kids on excursions. The waits were around 30-45 minutes each so it wasn’t too bad…
During the first week of December, Hubby and I were up at the Gold Coast to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary. I’ve been to the Gold Coast with Hubby and his family back in 2009, and I know we’ve grown so much since then. It’s an amazing feeling being able to look back and know how far we’ve come… I am one lucky woman :3
We got up at 3am that day to catch our morning flight, and with the timezone difference, it made our arrival pretty early too (back an hour). Upon our arrival, we found this pretty neat cafe called “Lot 1” and ordered breakfast :)
The food and chai latte were delicious. I still prefer Hubby’s onsen egg though (my favourite thing ever :3)
For our one year wedding anniversary, Hubby and I flew down to Tasmania where we spent 7 days exploring this beautiful little island, making our way up from Hobart to Launceston!
Maccas for breakfast @Sydney Airport. I would like 3 sugars with that please!
The flight was quick and painless, in a mere 1.5 hour we had arrived in Hobart (I beat the first level of Super Hexagon, woo~ go me!) We picked up our rental car and got a free upgrade for it ~ yay, lucky us :D
Unfortunately it was raining on the first day so we didn’t do too much. We explored the CBD and checked-in to our hotel at Bay View Villas, where we stayed for 2 nights.
Lunch @Sakura Sushi (but I decided to go for good old Chinese Soy Chicken Noodles XP)
We found the prices of food here to be generally quite expensive. On average a simple meal would cost you $25 a person excluding a drink. But hey, Tassie is kind of a touristy place and we are in Australia so we just came to accept it as the norm 8D
At around 8pm, the sun was still shining outside. Hubby and I started to look for a place for dinner and were quite surprised a lot of the restaurants were already closing! Dai pinchie XD!
