Weekend Getaway – Day 3

Day three of the Canberra trip started off with going to the Sunday market. I’m not too sure if it was called the Victorian market or something, totally forgot actually, but yeah we entered the place which had everything (it felt like it). They had food stalls and stuff you can buy toys/plants etc from and everything.

We were there to eat since it was roughly noon and we were getting hungry. B suggested to get a table first since the place apparently got really busy and was popular so after we found a table all of us could fit on we decided to go order some food. I ended up ordering a crepe which was actually really massive and filling by the time I was almost finished eating it, swear I had a food baby after. We also got these orange juice drinks which were amazingly really sweet and honestly the best orange juice I’ve ever tasted.

The man that sold the orange juice owned this amazing orange crusher death machine to make the orange juice. I swear I spent like a while staring at it haha. After we wondered around the place we then walked to this glass museum and watched how they made glass and whatnot.

Once we were bored of the glass making we made our way back to the car and B drove us to War Memorial. I swear going into that place is absolutely depressing. I mean people sacrifice their life for your freedom and here I am typing up a blogpost. It felt like it had a sad atmosphere I reckon, and we were there for about 2-3 hours since the place was massive to wonder around.

Windows from War Memorial, so pretty

After a few hours of walking around the War Memorial, B started complaining she was tired and wanted to go back home so we started making our way out of the building and made our way home.

When we got home I think we played a few X-Box games and started also watched some Australian Open. Then it was about 6:30 and B started making dinner for us which was very tasty. Then later at about 9-ish we went on a tour of ANU cause S wanted to, so here’s a picture of the pretty park at night, lol.



Anyway, we then made our way back to the room and ended up finishing the rest of the cider we bought the day before and watched a Breaking Dawn and Mean Girls before heading off to sleep to leave Canberra the next morning.


Cloudy With a Chance of Beach

Today I went to watch a movie with JT, and as suggested by the title of this post, it was Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2. The movie was actually pretty good for a kid’s movie, but then again  I wasn’t actually expecting a lot from the movie to begin with and there were lots of pun jokes on the food to laugh and sit through.

Before the movie though, we went to the Glen North Pole and took photos with Santa. JT didn’t want any so I went in myself and got the photos taken. I told him my name was Kit, and he was like, “You can call me San” LOL. Anyway, got some selfies with him as well. When the photos were done, we looked at the photos we took and I really liked all of them, cause they were pretty good, haha. I didn’t buy any of the photos cause they were too expensive and I’m a stingey asian, so I just got my phone out and took pictures of the computer screen that had the photos of me in it LOL.


When the movie finished we played those racing car games and I was totally winning at the beginning but then my car crashed and it all went down hill from there LOL.

Afterwards, we spontaneously went to the beach. We planned to go to Brighton but we ended up Half Moon Bay, which is close enough I guess. Anyway, I haven’t exactly been to Half Moon Bay before so I settled with it, and Half Moon Bay is like the most picturesque beach so I took like tonnes of photos of the beach lol.





See, such a beautiful beach. Absolutely picturesque. Love it. But also, when JT and I were walking along the beach, we saw like a black bra and white undies lying on the beach, which was like LOOOL, cause we thought someone had sex on the beach and forgot their undergarments haha. But then I guess if you can’t find it in the dark then you can’t… LOL.



Today was really kind of unexpected actually, a lot of it was really spontaneous, which is good in most ways – just not all the time, I reckon.

Anyway, so I went to uni for a lecture today that when from 9:30 to 10:30, then I met my baby (boyfriend) at MC at about 11:15ish, since he had to attend a class beforehand due to attendance marks or something along the lines of that. The meet up was pretty spontaneous as I’d only asked him to meet up with me this morning. So when we met, we got him some food since he was starving, and I’d already eaten before since I got pretty hungry.

When he finished eating, we decided to go back to his uni in Parkville. They were throwing a sausage sizzle, so I helped myself out – actually Baby got one for me since he was on the committee and helping out and selling tickets to some uni event later this week. While he was hard at work (probably not, since he came over and spoke to me a lot), his two friends came over and talked to me, and kept me company. They told me many dramatic stories over the weekend when they had camp.

After that, Baby had a lecture so I decided to tag along and sit through – very boring in my opinion, so lucky for me I’m not doing that unit or course lol. After that, Baby had to go study for his prac tomorrow so while he studied, I tried to entertain myself and keep myself busy to not distract them. For the most part, I ended up playing on my phone, and lying down, resting my head on Baby’s lap.

A couple of hours later, we got pretty hungry so we made some migoreng LOL, actually Baby made it for me since I stood there in the kitchen and did nothing but watch him haha, then after that, he decided to take it one step further and feed me my drink and food as a joke, haha!

Then we went to this event that Baby’s uni organised and I’m pretty sure students from other universities were not allowed to come in, but they didn’t ask me for student ID or anything at the door so I was pretty lucky! It’s called Parma Night. Baby had to go as he was preforming on the guitar with his group of friends. They preformed Metro’s Dumb Ways to Die, and I think about four of them dressed up in onesies!

Yeah, so we ordered our Parma’s at like 7ish and we got our drinks straight up and everything, but fucking hell, the parma’s took forever to make! We got about five (there was nine of us) at first, then we had to wait for the other four, WHICH NEVER CAME! OMG! It was like 8:00 when Baby’s group had preformed and a quite a number of different groups!

According the people making the parma said there was a stuff up among the orders. I don’t know what they’re called but we were given this electronic ticket that flashes/beeps/vibrates when the food was ready, and apparently the machines at the back didn’t work properly so that’s why we only got half our order first or something along the lines of that.

The four of us who hadn’t gotten our parma yet were getting quite hungry and I got pretty tired waiting around for my food since apparently our orders had gotten mixed up or something like that! So I decided to just go home and Baby was kind enough to accompany me home! 🙂

So that was my day! I’m so knackered from it all, haha. Can’t wait for mid-semester break, woo! Two more days and I’m on break, yay!
