Wake me up when November ends....

Well, at least when November ends, I would have finished my exams and be resting on my couch in Malaysia watching Astro. *sighsss* Exams will be here in about...20 days or so and I haven't actually got my engine going. Just handed in my last assignment for this semester today and gosh, it's such a relieve to dump the approximately 10 pages of work into my tutor's pigeon hole.

I really need some form of motivation to actually start studying. Have been slacking off since the second week of the holidays (I actually studied the first week!), and I have yet to do anything. I know I will regret not studying earlier when time passes. I always do. The term "procrastination" isn't really new in my vocab.

I think looking at the calendar today and seeing how close the 7th of Nov is kinda did scare me a little. So, I shall start planning my study timetable today. Hopefully, the thought of failing and not proceeding into 1st year Vet Science will scare me even more. I just hope that I will get really horrified of the exams soon enough and study extremely hard for the remaining 20 days, because if I don' well, I don't want to discuss what will happen after. But for now, I'm still pretty relaxed.

Now for some random happenings... A couple of days ago, I played Twister on one of Uni's lawns with a couple of friends. Pretty interesting. Here's us in action.... It was utterly ridiculous as we were twisting our bodies all over in front of countless other students. Nevertheless, it was stupidly, fun.

I've also kinda highlighted my hair (I guess you can't see it in the photo) and got a few curls just for a few hours...

I dissected an earthworm. I had to take a picture of this as I felt left out not having a pic of my rat. Everyone seemed to have a photo of their rat. I simply forgot to take one. So here's wormy from my bio practical (cut opened and pinned down by me!) =)

Well, hope . . . . you've

enjoyed my r and om ness.

Outing 2 : The Royal Melbourne Show

I must say that the day at the Royal Melbourne Show was awesome. I haven't had so much fun for a long while now. I guess every single one of us sort of let our guards down and just went all out to have fun that day. To destress, so to speak. Haha. >.<
Well, we went there at about 1pm because Wei Jin and I had to wait for the guys. I guess they weren't enthusiastic about going in the first place. I guess the twins had trouble getting up and ready that day....Even Michael was late!
We headed to the showgrounds by train and arrived there soon enough. I was actually looking forward to that day simply because I missed theme park rides so much. I was there last year as well and I remembered having so much fun with the rides. As I said in one of my other posts, the girls seemed to enjoy the rides more than the guys. It was, unfortunately, the same this year. Wei Jin and I had to coax the guys to coming on rides with us. Michael only lasted two rides.
The moment we arrived, I was already looking around for rides with Wei Jin. The guys tried to slow us down. But not long after we got to the Show, we were on our first ride...

Here's the first we took ride which made Michael's stomach turn...
Poor Michael. Haha...But I guess Davies was freaking out the whole time too.
I think the main reason we had so much fun that day was also because of the ridiculous hats we were wearing. Each of us bought one for 5 bucks. At first, we agreed to wear them only for a photo....Somehow, we ended up wearing them throughout the day.( I think we just enjoyed the attention we had from the public)...*wink* There were countless random people taking our photos that day...Including some professional photographers.

This is us in our ever so striking headdress. The ends of the long arms of the hat had some hard round thingies attached. I whacked several passers by with them without realising it. Well, thanks to Wei Jin for apologising to those people on my behalf. I only knew I was whacking innocent people when she told me. Eikk.

Our shadows....CreepY ?!?

My best meal of the day : Strawberries with Ice cream...Yummmm

And then, there was the whole bucket of fairy floss we had...

We then had our go at some games because I was bugging the guys to get me one of those huge Show soft toys. HAhaha....

This is us playing some water gun game...

Finally...we got Scooby!

Well, we didn't actually win it. I guess the lady was so amazed by our headdress that she gathered us around her and asked, "So, which toy do you want?" Haha...

Wei Jin and I also had these hair wraps done...with strings attached =P

I had much more fun at the Show this year than the last. Did much more stuff this year.

We even wore those hats all the way back to the city.

And, I'd say I love the hats!!!


Outing 1 : The Great Ocean Road

The two week break is over. Back to School for me. *sighs*
Well, I guess it's about time I said something about my little day trip to the Great Ocean Road during the holidays. Went there exactly a week ago but I was too lazy to upload photos and get them from friends so finally, I guess I've got enough now to post some up here.

The trip was pretty tiring...Left the city at about 8.30 am and only got back at about 9.30pm.

The start of the day : Breakfast at some place along the way.

A close up of the sinking marshmallow in my hot choc.

We had several stops along the way including Apollo Bay, Torquay and some other random stops to see the apostles. There were 12 Apostles some time ago, I guess now there's only 11. But we only saw 8 (I think we did) as the other 3 can only be seen on a helicopter. Sad. But I guess seeing one of the apostles were like seeing the rest. They all looked like the regular rock. Only larger. Much much larger.

Two random Apostles.

The other London Bridge you never knew about.

The bus ride was rather bumpy at times and we were just winding all over as the Great Ocean Road is everything but straight. I guess the view was somewhat spectacular and gosh, the beaches were beautiful. Sometimes, I wish I was staying at one of the beach houses. These houses are really amazing (although some of them are standing over a cliff) as they had glass all around instead of walls. Yeah, I pretty much had a perfect view of their bedroom at times, as though their beds were on display. However, I would think that it's nice to wake up to the view of the beach though. How relaxing.

Ahhhhhhhh.......I could almost feel the breeze.

I went there with these bunch of people...Wei Jin, Davies, Michael and Johnathan. I guess we kept each other alive in the bus at times. The journey seemed never ending and we desperately needed each other's support to survive, didn't we, guys? Thus, countless photos were produced in the bus, like these ones....

Michael promoting our snacks...

Just us...(with Johnathan trying to look less normal...hehehe)

Davies and his new found love : Fries. He had trouble parting with the empty box later on. Trust me.

Well, we did have some photos taken outside the bus. Here are a few....

On the beach, with arms spread out.

With Dav...

and Wei Jin...

Don't all of us just looove ice creammmm???

Overall, the trip was fulfilling. We were drained by the time we got back to the city but I guess we had a great time together. I suppose. Hehe. Well, at least I did!

Well, up next in my coming post would be on Outing 2 : Royal Melbourne Show.

So, keep a look out!
