Diary: Rain and More


The rain mixed with the cold weather of winter is never a good combination especially when you have been working for seven days straight at work, this is me currently. I did it as a favour for one of the guest service agents who wanted Friday off and rather than split our days off, we decided to swap our weekend completely. I don’t mind, I have tomorrow and Monday off and hoping that the rain holds off tomorrow so my family, bestie Mei and I can check out Vivid in the city.

I was originally going to vent under the sub heading of Neko Irritation but decided not to and instead just place it here in my diary entry. All my good friends know that I cannot stand fair-weather friends (A friend who is only a friend when circumstances are pleasant or profitable. At the first sign of trouble, these capricious, disloyal friends will drop their relationship with you.) I have had my fair share of them online, none in reality of course because it is a whole different ball game beyond the computer.

But online, you have so many and it usually occurs of when they striving to climb the pixel social ladder or wanting a boyfriend or a man who is DTF, I sadly had to release a fair-weather friend last night after my gut feeling became true. And it wasn’t just me, two of my other girl friends noticed it too and also deleted this friend. It is quite unfortunate because I knew her on IMVU for the past 5 years? And she helped me re-do my avatar when I returned to that pixel universe. Let’s just hope she knows what she is doing…

The top five likes from the past 9 days;

  • Cadbury bars- I have lessened my sugar intake so having a bar of chocolate sates the craving
  • Golden State Warriors are still leading in NBA finals
  • My flickr has reached 1,100 followers tonight ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you all
  • Wonder Woman! I need to watch it again, it was absolutely amazing and Gal is soaring high!
  • Family time last weekend after AM shift, I don’t get much time with my cousins but when I do it is always crazy in a good way

Diary: Cold, very Cold


I do not like this 4-7 degrees Celsius every night I finish at 11pm and drive home, it is too cold though it is perfect excuse to pull out the cute winter wear again and get all snuggled in. But I still don’t like it! Work has its moments of being random and fun, then other times we are cracking down and working our butts off until after the shift ends.

Tonight was one of those nights and it is also when I had some girl who only comments on my timeline when being a bitch and the thing is she really knows nothing, to think that my status was about the virtual world had me mentally facepalming- some people live online too much.

An assortment of five positive things this week;

  • Vivid (Sydney sound and light show) is back on in the city, going to see it with family on 11th June
  • More Shadowhunters promos, we have a week until it premieres again!
  • My group of girls- glad we are hanging out more on IMVU, it is peaceful
  • My unicorn slippers arrived in the post last week, just in time for the cold weather
  • Natural stones collection at Lovisa jewellery store- been wearing a lot of moon stones lately :3

Diary: Three times a Charm


I got three days off and though I didn’t do much and returning to work tomorrow morning, it has been quite chilled out and relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle in the hotel or going out and having family parties. Tonight is my usual driving or bus into the city for my regular Chinatown Friday night markets which means food time!

I got five days of work this week but it is getting more exciting because I am learning the ropes for a team leader, wish me luck I get this promotion soon!

My five likes;

  • Wonder Womanย is getting amazing reviews from fans who have watched it this week, yayy!
  • Boyfriend made me swoon three times, he is such a romantic when not being a dork โค
  • More Shadowhuntersย teasers have been released! More Sebastian!
  • Drove up the mountains yesterday, took pictures of the Autumn scenery, so pretty this time of year
  • 12 followers away from reaching 1,100 on my Flickr, well I guess people like my pictures ๐Ÿ˜€

Diary: Mix and Mash


All these early starts are making my body cry for sleep, which is perhaps why I had a nap yesterday evening after I came home from work and slept in the car all the way home today after a full day out with the family in Bowral. This week has been packed with great memories whether online or in real life and I will list my top five in the usual likes. I had requested to have today and tomorrow off because the newest member of my family, my cousin’s little daughter had her baptism today and celebrated her first birthday.

She lives an hour away in the Southern Highlands and driving down the highway to her town brings back fond memories of when my family and I used to drive to Nowra before Nanna moved back up to Sydney, we used to have a lunch stop in Mittagong which is the town next to Bowral and it always fun to go through as a kid travelling a lot.

The five likes;

  • Karage mayo bowl at Tenkomori on Friday night followed by fun conversation in the Bee Lab downstairs in the city
  • Despite the drama a wannabe kawaii blogger blew up on Facebook, my friendships grew with some of the girlies online
  • Cousin bonding time today over birthday lunch with both adult and kids
  • 2/3 of the unique pins I bought online via Etsy have been delivered this week
  • Growing knowledge while working and gaining confidence to become a team leader

Diary: Fangirl Hype


This week at work has been a mix of busy and quiet but otherwise non eventful, the moments outside the hotel is when it gets better and more interesting. Featured in this week’s five likes. The girls and I were chatting in Facebook chat about how everyone was returning to IMVU and I probably mentioned it in one of my mood or diary entries on here but it is so true! The golden days for us veterans is slowly sparking up again and it is an amazing feeling!

Conversations that never end and full of random moments that have you rolling over in laughter is occuring and it is great to be in the company of great people.

My five likes for this week;

Diary: Relaxed and Content


After last weekend’s non stop action, this week has been fairly slow, the past week was all PM shifts and training the new GSA, she been nailing the checklist so I had confidence that she would be fine to work on her own when I went on my days off. Weekend was exciting and did a lot of socialising with my friendship group from high school.

Now I’m halfway through my AM shifts in this new week and so far it’s been quiet because of this Easter long weekend, I don’t mind it has been nice to catch up on projects that had to be put on hold because of my teaching or busy days where we are 100% and full of corporate guests.

My five likes for this week;

  • Mei’s 30th birthday dinner, got to catch up with the high school girlies
  • Fate of the Furious (F8) was friggin awesome especially in gold class
  • Shadowhunters is renewed for Season 3…according to SpoilerTV
  • Bucket of M&M speckled eggs from my younger sister for Easter
  • Quiet weekend at work, everyone still on holidays!

Diary: Calm Before the Storm


Though Cyclone Debbie has gone passed and settled down from a category 4 to a tropical storm in Northern queensland, my work life is about to become a busy period leading right up to the weekend where mum and I will be doing the 10km walk in our nation’s capital.

Yes it is coming up already, can’t believe this month has gone so quickly (sorta). I will be working 8 AM shifts straight after tomorrow’s day off and training the new guest service agent, it will be a leadership experience for me, so wish me luck!

Do I have five likes for this past week, lemme count them below;

  • Parents came home yesterday and I got a t-shirt present from mum ๐Ÿ˜€

Diary: Two more Days


Parents are returning this Tuesday! It feels like they have been gone forever, Ange and I have survived without the parents even doing house chores in their absence. Skitty is still well loved though we have both been working and I have not completely lost my sanity when Ange stays over at her fiance’s house. I do however need to step up on my exercising game, two weeks until mum and I will be driving to Canberra for the 10km fun walk.

This past week’s likes that I have experienced;

  • A pink notebook and a sushi keychain I bought from Typo yesterday
  • A double decker London bus pin that I bought from Mooii last night while out with Mei
  • Justice League released its official trailer today and it is glorious!
  • Chinatown night markets last Friday night, it feels like less people or perhaps its because I was there in the early evening
  • Ordered new kitten play accessories from Etsy, can’t wait for it to arrive

Diary: The First Week


Entering the second week without parents and so far my sister and I seem to going just fine, it is giving us a bonding experience as siblings while also attending to the needs of our fluffy ginger ๐Ÿ˜€ I still feel guilty of leaving Skitty on his own when I work the PM shift but make sure he gets plenty of love when it is my days off.

Returning to work tomorrow morning and glad I only got four days again this week before another 3 days off but giving you my past likes for this week.

  • Finally got my Seraphina Picquery wand from Fantastic Beasts, collected at Zing pop shop yesterday

Diary: Staying Occupied


Parents flew out to Philippines today and will be away for two weeks while visiting both dad’s mum who is living in the southern province and his younger sister and husband who have retired there also. I still got the jitter bugs inside me only because this time last year I was scared when I heard a loud bang outside my house at 4am, so scared that I ended up calling my work and getting one of the night auditors to check my house for me.

Here is hoping for an uneventful two weeks without the presence of the adults. I’m sure I’ll be fine, I got Ange, Adam and Skitty of course ๐Ÿ˜›

  • I lost two more kilos, don’t ask how I’m doing it but it’s staying off
  • Going to watch Beauty and the Beast with two work colleagues on 21st March
  • Kitten D’amour’s ‘Suspicion’ collection is divine!
  • I bought Barbie: Video Game Hero, its very ‘Wreck it Ralph’ but sad no new movie trailers were released
  • Only two months (roughly) until Shadowhunters returns to tv with 2b ๐Ÿ˜€
