Coles mini collection

1st September 2018

Dear Chibi,

Happy first day of spring!!

Coles Mini Collection

Who doesn’t love a mini replica? :D Last month Coles supermarkets had a promotion where if you spend over $30 in one transaction, you get a random ‘mini’ of  a everyday consumer good. Hubby and I regularly shop at Coles but we hardly ever spend over $30 in one go. I didn’t think I’d be able to get my hands on any, but luckily my work colleague was collecting these for her daughter and gave me her extras! Yes… ALL of these were her duplicates!! Lucky me! There were 30 different products to collect. I end up with 13.

My favourites from the lot: Colgate toothpaste, Tim Tam, Leggo’s bolognese sauce, Oak chocolate milk and Milo.

Back to Class

21st February 2018

Dear Chibi,

Tonight after work, Kaz and I did a one-off short course together in the city. We haven’t been in the same ‘classroom’ in a really long time, so it was pretty nostalgic XD. I can’t say I learned much from the course, but I had a good time hanging out so I consider this a success :D

Dinner@ The Sambal

 

So I was feeling a little..oily..?

30th March 2014

Dear Chibi,

I had some time on my hands today so I decided to take out some oil paint and make something :D I’m actually really bad at traditional painting so this is just a bit of mindless fun 8D. Oil paint is quite difficult to use @_@ My paint brushes were also super-old cheap ones so that doesn’t help either XD

I didn’t know what I was gonna paint. I wanted something relatively basic for my level, so my Jigglypuff plushie seemed perfect 8D I couldn’t open the lid of the white paint, so I end up chopping it off with my scissors ^^” Now I’ve just wasted the entire tube by throwing it in the bin. How will I paint light stuff in the future? XD

My finished painting.  Looks kind of strange.. more like a Clefairy than a Jigglypuff. Oh noes!
It was a pretty fun, silly experience nevertheless 8D

Graffiti Wall

16th February 2014

Dear Chibi,

Oooo.. remember back in the day when Facbeook “Graffiti Walls” were popular? I managed to dig these out and decided to share them here. What memories :3

Let’s talk about socks

6th September 2013

Dear Chibi,

This morning as I was getting dressed for work, I had this looming feeling as I pull out my bottom drawer… yup…I’ve run out of socks. Well, a decent pair that don’t slip off your feet the moment you walk anyway. (I have a lot of those XD)

Just as all hope seemed lost, I dug out a pair that I’ve never ever worn… I thought maybe this was the occasion.

Oh dear. What was I thinking.

I bought these from Harakuju while I was in Japan last year and somehow thought it would be cute. THEY FEEL SO WEIRDDDDD XDDDDD

*tosses the socks back into the drawer* XD

Retro Sprite Can and A Big Giant Duck

11th January 2013

Giant Duck in Sydney Darling Harbour

And saw gigantic Mr duck sitting in Darling Harbour :D It’s the CUTEST THING EVER.

That is all 8D

“Mr A came flying to the Moon…” WTH?

17th November 2012

Dear Chibi,

So Kaz found these doodles that I apparently did a while ago in one of her old note pads. I don’t even remember these, but I guess that’s what makes them so amusing…how random can you get? XD

WAHBA? Wabafett?? Someone is going nuts…

Who the heck is Mr A?? lolol

Paper Chase

17th October 2009

Dear Chibi,

So in my previous blog entry, I asked why it was so cold. The weather fluctuated quite a bit during this time. On a train ride home on a warm day, this happened:

*Sigh* I really don’t know what I want anymore. When the weather gets a teeny weeny bit warmer, the monsters come out ._. GAH! But when it’s cold I complain it’s cold too.. well, I complain when it’s too hot too. Autumn is the best!… when it’s slightly warm but not really warm..yeah.

Dear Chibi,
I got this cute bonsai for my birthday from Maki earlier this year~ It now sits on top of my fish tank.

yay, it’s still alive ♥ (even though it’s starting to get cobwebs ._.)

The Japanese Experience

27th February 2008

Dear Chibi,

What does Chibi always look out for when traveling to a new place? The toilets! XD Not so much of where they are, but what they’re like. Sadly, the toilets at the Japan airport weren’t as amazing as the ones in South Korea (the changing toilet seat). They were normal, haha.

Here’s the tap where you push down instead of up, and a mini hand dryer.

Of course, the Japanese come up with much more interesting toilets than that. I was very excited to find that the toilets in the hotel are bizarre. I’ve heard about them, but seeing it in action is wacko XD

As you can see above, the Japanese have extra options that go with their toilet =) As Tokyo is a freeeezing place this time of the year (was -2 degrees, max 9) , the seats are all heated~ ahh. hehe. The moment you sit on the seat, water starts filling up inside, and it says “preparation”- it makes you wonder what it’s preparing, lol. Well, once it reaches a certain level it stops. After doing your business, you flush it, of course. But, tis’ not the end! It can wash your butt for you XD Clicking on the extras, a little pipe comes out and starts spraying water- different options for male and female. Then it can also blow dry it for you. Aren’t the Japanese living a great life? You just sit there and everything does the work for you ^^;;; Might I just add I don’t think I wanna touch those options again! hahaha…

During the trip, I also found other interesting toilets. One that particularly grabbed my attention was one that made FAKE FLUSH NOISES! LOL. You can even set the volume… I don’t understand why they would need an extra option to make fake flushing noises, without the toilet flushing. My conclusion was if you wanted to pretend you went to the toilet, and didn’t wanna waste water for flushing nothing ^^; I dunno.
