post op

Had my eye surgery today. Finally, after 2 whole months of a 2nd cyst. It was actually quite a traumatic experience. I vow to take better care of my eyes and health in general from now on. =)

Taken after the surgery

I am very grateful to the wonderful nurses at the Canberra Eye Hospital for making me feel comfortable and welcomed during the whole ordeal. The whole surgery probably took less than 15 minutes. And I had the most heart-warming cup of tea after the surgery~ Thanks Wendy and Virginia~~ And also thanks to Dr. Lawin-Brussel. 

And special thanks to Yean Tat for coming with me and bringing me home. <3 I look so ugly in that photo. T.T We had lunch at Iori after that~ Yay~~ 

Made a fluffy mound of mashed potatoes for dinner. I was too lazy to cook anything elaborate. =D

It's 8.16pm now and I'm too lazy to do anything. T.T

Nigella Fever

Had Nigella fever last week. Made three of her recipes in one week.

I made her cupcakes with royal icing first. They were really good. And it was the first time I succeeded in making icing. ^^ But I'm terrified at the amount of sugar that is needed in making icing.

The cupcakes I made were not as nice as the ones that Nigella made. They were lopsided and didn't rise evenly. =( I am going to make another batch soon I hope! I love the cupcakes, they smell so divine thanks to the vanilla that goes in. 

Then I made Vietnamese Shrimp Noodle Salad. =D 

It's really good as well. But not very filling though. I got hungry after like 2 hours. =( But I love bean sprouts and the sugar snaps. 

The last recipe is a special gift for a birthday. I made chocolate cheesecake for Wj's b'day yesterday. 
I think it's quite good. But the next time I make it I will probably put a little less sour cream. 

Been addicted to eating cereal lately. It's called milo in M'sia but in Aussie, it's called nesquick. And when I was looking for it, the milo in Aussie is actually koko krunch. It's pretty funny.

Took this photo during Wj's birthday party. I really had lots of fun at the party and I really enjoyed the company of the people there not to mention the awesome food. Hope to have more awesome times before I graduate. 

Took these when walking to the school of music for gelato.

I am eating cereal again. Feel so famished even though I ate dinner. =(

Robocup 2010

I volunteered again for Robocup this year. Was really fun. ^^ and I got a thank you gift and lunch which is a neat bonus.

Was in charge of judging the dance section again this year. The kids were really creative and cute. And i got flowers for helping out~ yay~~ ^^ Thanks to Cal/Kel (?), my co-judge who was awesome. 

This is victory smurf looking out at the dance floor. 

This is the winner for the dance category. Star Wars~ Last year they had pirates. Both big on theatrics and props and robots fighting each other. 

There were other groups that were really good. All the kids had a good time and I sure did. Thanks to Samantha from the College of Engineering and Computer Science for asking again.

My phone camera kinda sucks. The photos look ok in the phone but not so good when it's on the computer. =( Hopefully I will get a camera soon.

Rocky Road

Made aglio e olio pasta today. Been craving for it. It's yummy and easy to make! I remember mc told me about this before.

I kinda got depressed for a few things, bills, assignments and accompaniment. Been listening to my songs on shuffle. Love how the unexpectedness of the sequence of the songs manage to make me a little less agitated. Currently playing is a violin song by Vanessa Mae.

Mc should have arrived in Sweden and started discovering a new life for herself. lol. I miss u dearie and you are always in my thoughts.

I'm using this app from my phone to blog but I can attach one photo on one post. bummer~

For my MC

Sorry for not updating. I wanted to update but I just kept procrastination and not taking photos and so in the end I didn't blog for awhile. hahah. I'm making excuses.

MC is gonna fly off to Sweden tonight and I wish her all the best. Will be anticipating exciting stories about her adventures in Sweden.

On another note, I promise I will blog more frequently from now on.
