3rd Year Anniversary

0

"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is.'''

Just a blink of an eye, and we've been together for 3 years now.

To be honest, it wasn't something that was expected due to many circumstances at that time.

She was only 18 and I was 23 - both of us were too young to commit to something which is substantially long-term and time-consuming, let alone to stick together for 3 years or more.

But we are defying the soothsayers, and today, we're both "3 years old" :)



That's us 3 years ago.....


And us....today

To be able to find someone that you can pour your hearts out, rely on and to live together each and every single day is quite an arduous task.

Most couples may clicked, but not everyone can live with your other half every day amidst the constant nagging, little disagreements and the yearning for some sort of private space for each other.

But we've made it through, unscathed...and to celebrate what we've went through so far, I think it's apt to commemorate this occasion with a small, simple gift...



I bought her a Longchamp Le Pliage tote bag as I know she's been targetting one
(and thanks to Pamela for bringing it all the way from Europe for me...cheers!)

And Vian got me something too....



A pair of Country Road canvas shoes


Thanks for being here for me throughout these 3 years.

"Love is not about finding the right person, but creating a right relationship. It's not about how much love you have in the beginning but how much love you build till the end."

And yes, we still have a lot to build....and a long way to go....let's not give up now, shall we?

~Happy Anniversary, my Dear~ xoxo

Chocolate Indulgence @ San Churro

0

Last Sunday, we went to the famous chocolateria in Fremantle - San Churro.


We are not fine chocolate connoisseurs but we do love to have chocolates such as Cadbury bars, Ferrero Rocher and Lindt's Lindor every now and then. So, basically 'fine chocolates' are kind of an uncharted territory for us.


Our housemates, Jules and FangYu joined us and by the time we reached, there was already a line of people queuing up at the ordering counter. As a rule of thumb - a queue for food can only mean good food. :)



The place was virtually packed and luckily for us, we managed to find two vacant tables but unluckily for us, each table can only fit 3 people. And there were 5 of us (including Percy who was on her way to meet us after work).

And so, we combined both tables ala mamak-style...and Voila! It's a table for 5 suddenly.



While the girls were busy taking photos (as usual), I was busy checking for time of the match between Chelsea and Man Utd that's kicking off later that night.

And here's an artwork on the wall depicting what I believe to be the man himself, San Churro and the ailing Queen of Spain on her sickbed.


A brief research tells that San Churro was actually a Spanish monk in the 16th century. At that time, monks were being tasked to manufacture chocolates as a rare delicary for the royal family and the aristocrats.

San Churro was the head monk, and after witnessing first-hand the many miracles of chocolate including the healing of the Queen, he decided to share the recipe to the commoners and that was how chocolate eventually spread across Europe.



The menu basically listed everything that's made of chocolates. So we took quite a while to ponder what to choose from the vast selections while waiting for Percy to arrive.

And finally she arrived, with sunglasses on.


And this is her drink - Choco Loco.


And this is the main 'star' of the day - Churros with chocolate dippings (we can choose either milk, dark or white chocolate for the dippings).



I, for one, have no idea what a churro is but it sure tasted damn delicious! It's sort of like 'yau char kway' but less oily and more flour than air inside and a bit sweeter. I know that's a bad description, but you got the idea. :P

This is what Vian and I ordered for ourselves - Chocolate Fondue for two.


It has mini-churros, popcorns, strawberries, bananas, marshmellows, mini pretzels, crushed peanuts and 2 hedgehog slices.


The bad thing about the fondue was that it didn't have a candle underneath, so the chocolate wasn't too runny after a while. However, the chocolate was rich and was rather good except that I found it a tad too sweet for my liking.


We washed it all down with a glass of Chocolate Vanilla milkshake. Although it's still chocolate, but at least it's a refreshing change from the creamy and rich chocolate fondue.


All in all, I think this place deserved a 2nd visit. Not on a weekly basis, but rather as a casual indulgence occasionally. It's not everyday that our housemates and us have an outing together so usually when we go out, it's for good foods :)


And the quote on the serviette puts it aptly....

I am officially a third year student ...

My first day of uni started with a lovely breakfast cooked by him. It's called soft boiled eggs with toasted soldiers and grilled sausage with salami.


It's simply delicious and get me motivated as you guys know lah...It needs a lot of effort and motivation to wake up at 7.30 on a Monday morning.

Love you to the max sayang!!~

This is why his mother always mention that I am the luckiest girl to have him - the masterchef of my heart.


I can't imagine that I am already a year three student in Murdoch University. Still remember vividly how insecure and tough when I first landed in this foreign land. Everything seems to be strange and foreign to me. If you ask me what is my toughest experience in Perth..... It is to learn to take the public transport here. I need to do some time management and to arrange my timing according to the bus timetable. It is really hard for me even until now I can't really say that I have manage my time well enough for me to catch the bus. The biggest failure ~

One more year till my graduation. Plans? I don't have one right at this moment. Not very sure what I want to be in the future and I know this will upset my dad if I tell him. Mum is always the more optimistic one. She knows that I will find my way out no matter how and had fully supported me over the years ~ I am glad that they are all here as I know that I need them more than anyone =)

Time flies. Here we go from strangers to friends..from friends to housemates ~


No one can predict what will happen in the future but I am glad that they had once came into my life.

Everyone of us have something to pursue in our lives and I am expecting to see and share the laughter that we once had again in the future when they are done with everything.

One more year to go - I will enjoy my last year being a student to the max! *Advice from the working adults*

OMEDETOU!

Omedetou ! Basically it means 'congratulations' in Japanese.


Vian has finally passed her Japanese Proficiency Test (Level Four).
And she even got a tiny, miniscule 'certificate' to show. Haha!



By passing the test, she got her exam fees of AUD 60 refunded but not in cash.

Instead, she received a AUD 60 Borders gift card and we went shopping for books in the city's Borders outlet. We got ourselves 3 novels for AUD 0.55 after we utilized the gift card! :)

w00t!~

FreO with Percy

Percy - friend cum housemate

Before I start mumbling about our visit to Fremantle, let me talk a little bit about Percy.

Percy is from Hong Kong and she is going back to Hong Kong soon for good. From barely knowing each other to good friends and eventually as good housemates after we moved in together, I can't say that we had went through a lot but it is the memories we shared that matter.

The feeling of knowing that she will be leaving soon is very complicated. It's happy and sad at the same time. I am so glad to know that she had finally made up her mind to go back to her country and continue pursuing her dream. It is sad as she is already part of our lives - a good friend that we can share everything with.

Goodbyes are not forever, they simply means I 'll Miss You until we meet again.

Okay!Enough with the super emo post ~

We are trying to do as much outing as we can with Percy during our winter break. Unfortunately, we (Percy and me) prefer spending our precious time rotting at home and sleeping like nobody business. Therefore Fremantle is the only place Percy and us had visited over the winter break. LOL~

Fremantle Market

We actually planned to have our lunch in one of the Japanese restaurant but the two princesses here overslept and we ended up in Fremantle around 3pm. It was a bit too late for lunch and yet too early for dinner as well.

So the three of us just wandered around and took as many pictures as we can. Taking loads of pictures are the way to capture all our memories and keep them with us forever =)





Went in to Fremantle Market and managed to snap some colourful photos. Nothing much in the market as the market is one of those tourist destination so what they sell there are just souvenirs, posters, honey and all kind of nuts ~

Squishy toy

Different colours have different names
Green - Bob
Blue - Chaz
Yellow - Lily
Purple - Stella

Ryan Ng is a gay - believe it or not?

You can customize your own bracelets with those colourful beads.

Fruit stalls

Fruit stalls are our favourite places to drop by in the market as they have free fruit samples for us to taste. It is okay if you don't feel like buying after tasting them.
The people there are quite friendly and generous as well =)

The orange was sooooo sweet~!!Love it to the max~


Dinner time ~

Went to Pink Rice for our dinner. Pink Rice serves Japanese cuisine and they have the longest sushi train in Western Australia.


We tried a variety of the offerings on the train and the sushi was good. What we loved the most was the soft shell crab.


Chef recommended - Teppanyaki Chicken

Overall the food was good and indeed, less expensive than similar places in Perth.
A highly recommended place to dine in =)

We decided to chill at Little Creatures after our dinner. On our way there, we saw a unique bookshop. We have visited Fremantle many times in the past but had never came across this bookstore. The architecture of this bookstore itself is unique. It looks like a museum more than a bookstore.

New Edition Bookshop

Percy was fascinated by this Wonder Women address book.


Its a little bit too pricey to own it. So Percy just took a few pictures of her favourite in the address book...

~Little Creatures~


Spent our remaining night in Little Creatures with beers and laughter ...of course not forgetting the very addictive fries.


Its good to say that we feel very comfortable having each other around. Talk and share whatever we feel like and knowing that it won't leave any hard feeling between us ~ This is what good friends are for.
