A day of board games & Rouge One

3rd January 2017

Dear Chibi,

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.

Gary & Angela’s Wedding

9th November 2015

Dear Chibi,

Yesterday Hubby and I had the pleasure of attending Gary & Angela’s wedding held at Le Montage. How time flies :) It’s almost been a year since Ange caught the bouquet at my wedding, and 4 years since I first met dear old Dr Gary (He’s actually younger than me). Gary is one of the strangest guys I’ve ever met. He’s eccentric, grandpa-like, very dopey yet funny and intelligent at the same time. Did that even make sense? Oh, he’s also a really nice guy (and a softy).

The ceremony started just after 3.30pm at the Sarah Grand Balcony. Hubby and I arrived about 15 minutes before, and boy was it crowded! And there he was… the groom waiting anxiously, and excitedly with his nerdy groomsmen ;D Burpy in a suit and bow-tie? Don’t get to see that very often~ heeee.

Taiwanese Festival & Karaoke Outting

6th September 2015

Dear Chibi,

There was a Taiwanese Festival held at Darling Harbour this weekend. Burpy & his mum went to check it out in the morning, and since Burpy, Buns and I were gonna hang out that arvo anyway, we met up earlier and crashed the party ;p

It was a typical festival with lots of food stalls, music, stage performances and some booths showcasing arts and crafts (puppets and masks). Watching kids on stage performing Taiwanese dances gave me a sense of nostalgia. When I was about their age, I performed Taiwan native dances for Chinese School. I remember there being a photo taken of us standing on the stage at Cabramatta. We looked uncomfortable and awkward. The stage was burning hot, and we weren’t wearing any shoes XD. I wonder if I can dig up that photo one day… hmmm :3

EDIT: Found the photo:

The first one on the left is me. I look so angry. AHAHHAHA. I only recognise a few faces. There’s Kevin Ha next to me, Kaz, Mark and Quanne. *Sigh* Poor Quanne :<

After watching some dances and juggling- we popped into Guylian Cafe for some Belgian chocolate :D

PaniQ Room Escape

31st August 2015

Dear Chibi,

Today cBsM finally got to do our second room escape experience (the first one being Vampire’s Castle). This time I booked PaniQ Room’s ‘Supercell 117’ which is basically a prison escape. We start off blind folded and hand cuffed while they lock us up inside two separate cells in the dark. We needed to find the switch for the lights, the keys for the handcuffs and go from there…

Unfortunately, we didn’t end up escaping in time… ^^” We went over by 15 minutes, and they gave out way too many clues. Although the room and puzzles were good fun, I left feeling unsatisfied… I wasn’t able to help solve any of the puzzles, or find any clues~ so it wouldn’t have made a difference whether I was there or not. I guess this stuff is just too hard for me : <

After PaniQ Room, we had lunch at Pancakes on the Rocks. I got this ‘Fisherman’s Catch’ and an iced chocolate :) Yay! I get to use my new camera, AND I LOVE IT!! Thanks Hubby, you’re the bestest :3 <3

cBsM Bowling & Karaoke Day

23rd June 2015

Dear Chibi,

On Sunday I hung out with my gaming buddies with some good old bowling at Harbourside. Coincidentally, we played on the same bowling lane as we did two and a half years ago. Good good fun. Unfortunately just like last time, I came out with the lowest score…. HOW TERRIBLE ;p Out of 2 games, I only managed 1 strike..and 1 spare. Maybe next time Chibi…. u_u

My LoL adventures

17th May 2015

Dear Chibi,

I’ve recently started playing League of Legends for the last 2 months, and it’s turning out pretty fun :) I don’t particularly like trying out new things, especially when it comes to games. I’m the type of girl who likes to stick to what she’s familiar with and love that over and over. So when cBsM asked me to play, I was super reluctant. I just wanted to play StarCraft2. Fast forward a few months and here I am maxed at level 30 and soon to enter the world of “ranked games” 8D I say “soon” because I’m still not legible until I own 16 champions. So far, I’ve only been playing “Annie” exclusively.

lol

lol-annie

Doesn’t she look so cute? :3

I guess I’ll see how I go… ^^” Maybe it’ll happen one day..maybe it won’t. Time shall tell!

 

 

Mission Room Escaped!

4th January 2015

Dear Chibi,

Yesterday cBsM did our first room escape adventure with Mission Room Escape! For those unfamiliar with it, it’s a real life simulation of a computer game, where you’re locked in a room and try to escape by finding clues and solving mysteries within a time limit. We chose the ‘Vampire’s Castle’ theme and it was heaps spooky and fun! I was really impressed by how high tech it was. The game itself was pretty challenging, but we made it out alive! We end up using one tip (you have 3 life lines) but it was a bit silly since that clue was really obvious XD. I won’t write about the actual room(s) since I don’t want to ruin the surprise for anyone else who wants to experience it themselves.

Would totally do again in a different room/theme :3 There’s really no point doing the same room twice since you know all the answers ^^”

Final Fantasy XIV

29th September 2013

Dear Chibi,

Recently cBsM got me FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn as a gift, so I’ve been playing this over the last week or so (yay for 30 day free subscription!).  It’s my first MMORPG so the concept is pretty new to me. I also had a difficult time learning how to move my character around but luckily I’m getting the hang of it!  So far it’s been quite enjoyable~ but I’m mostly excited about the battles rather than the actual story/plot ^^” The visuals are pretty amazing and I love the battle music!

Meeting IMMvp @ ASRock’s M8 Sydney Showdown

16th September 2013

Dear Chibi,

Yesterday along with cBsM, I attended the ‘ASRock’s M8 Sydney Showdown’ a free StarCraft 2 event held at the UNSW Roundhouse organised by Oceanic eSports. It was my first SC2 event and I was super excited for the day since my Terran hero IMMvp, a 4 time GSL Code S Champion will be there for the day :D :D Yaaaayy

Meeting-Mvp01

The event was supposed to start at 12.15pm, but due to technical difficulties, we end up sitting in the audience seat for about 2 hours waiting for something to happen. Mvp was probably getting restless, as he started queuing up ladder games and playing placement matches XD (He end up in Silver league)

[cBsM] hit Masters League in 4v4

7th April 2013

Dear Chibi,

Last night my Starcraft 2 clan finally hit masters league in 4v4! This is the first time we’ve achieved this as a group so we’re pretty happy about it :D Now that we’ve reached the highest league on SEA, we’ve migrated to the Korean/Taiwanese server for more challenges. Surprisingly, there’s a lot less lag playing over there than on AUS/NZ  @_@. Not that I’m complaining XD

We had 27 wins and 9 losses for the HoTS season
