Lost In Austen

Very few people...actually no one knows that I have an obsession with Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Seriously who can not fall in love with Mr Darcy and want Elizabeth to end up with him. I absolutely adore the 1995 version, Colin Firth is Mr Darcy and I could not imagine anyone else play to him. In my opinion 2005 P&P movie's Mr Darcy while easy on the eyes he lacked the haughty attribute and was a bit too emotional. But I dare say, Lost in Austen's Darcy played by Elliot Cowan is just as good as Colin Firth's!*gasp*

Lost in Austen is about a girl Amanda Price who loves the P&P books swaps places with Elizabeth Bennett and is stuck in 18th Century England right at the start of the book. This mini series is hilarious and the idea is smart and fun. Especially love the references and my favourite part is how she compares Darcy with Colin Firth's and makes him go into the pond to get himself wet! A postmodern moment for her and us viewers! Entertaining! I cant believe I have never seen it but glad I waited, got the limited edition DVD journal(^з^)-☆Definitely a show for all P&P lovers who wants to escape to an alternative story line.

Maybe I can fill it up with inspiring adventures?

Easter Feast

And...Easter is past, time does fly. I did a lot this Easter but one of my favourites this year was eating Lunch made by my Mum. She is a genius cook and painter! I'll definately have to get the recipes from her, there is still so much I need to learn :)

My mum's home made spaghetti, lasagna, tuna pasta, pumpkin soup, salad and garlic bread. Oh my absolutely amazing♥

Hot cross buns and a cold cup of mocha frappe

Easter eggs and chickiess. I had these little chickies for a few years now, could never have the heart to throw them out :D

My pet bird, Tweety. Sitting on my computer lol

A large Guylian, perfect excuse to eat it all on Easter haha

Happy Easter

Happy Easter Everyone! was inspired to do an illustration thanks to the EAT ME necklace from Modcloth, unfortunately it's sold out dammit. It's a cute necklace and you can fill it up with whatever goodies you like.

The colours don't appear as well when I scan it but Easter always reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. Kinda freaky when it's the rabbit as the human and humans are the pets, no? :)

Good Friday = Fish & Chips

Yesterday I had no work for the first time on a public holiday! yay! As usual Good Friday is a day for church + fish and chips, I was going to make it but nothing is open on a public holiday. And the night before I was way too lazy to do any last minute ingredient shopping. Church on Friday was crazy i only go to church Easter and Christmas :P and we always end up sitting outside on the grass because it's so full of people :) Not complaining because i prefer being outside than in. So instead after church we bought ourselves fish and chips from one of our friend's store. And it was pretty good :)

mmm fish, crab sticks, pineapple fritters, chips...♥

2011.04.15 - Good Charlotte Cardiology Tour

Friday my sisters and I went to see Good Charlotte and O.M.G it was one of the best concerts I have ever been to (The best for me was L'Arc~en~ciel's 2007-2008 concert :)). We got there around 7.30pm and guest band 'New Empire' were already playing, decided to get our merchandise before they ran out. Got myself their tour shirt and a cute bag.

When we got to our seats the next guest band 'Short Stack' started, they were getting the crowd hyped for GC and it was working. Our seat was on the stand, right in the middle facing directly opposite the stage. Close enough to see them but not enough to see their faces without our binoculars :)

9.33pm finally the lights went out and the screaming started! They came out singing 'The Anthem'. Most songs they sang were their older ones but all are favourites! The guys also are good at getting the audience hyped! The whole concert we jumped up and down, screaming, singing along(cough* shouting along :P), so much fun. The only negative side to the concert is that in Australia the audience isn't as fun and crazy like the ones in Japan. My sisters and I, a lady next to us and a few girls down below were the only ones standing and enjoying ourselves. Everyone just sat there, err why are they here if not to enjoy themself?! weird but we had a good time and that's all that counts. Next time they come we are going to Mosh!

My Sunlit blossoms Golden Earrings from Ruche.

Warning: Do not wear these earring to concerts mine fell off after the third song and lost the back part :(Benji singing his solo.

Tour Shirt and bag :D

Cheese Straw

One of the most addictive food is Cheese Straw, the cheesy-ness, crunchy-ness and taste of herbs makes me go back for more. Unfortunately for one straw it cost $2.00! Finally I made these and they were gone in half an hour :) Using the recipe from here. They are easy to make (twisting into the shape was a bit difficult) and it doesn't take long for it to cook. I will be making more of this again very very soon!

The Burger Bistrow

Finally tired the burgers at The Burger Bistrow, for lunch on the weekend. I ordered the rose and thyme chicken burger, oh and it was Aye-mazing. The place itself had a very unique interior, half of the ceiling is covered in light bulbs. I love the look and will definately be coming back for more♥!

Moon Flower

Yesterday my parents bought home a flower called Dutchman's Pipe Cactus (Epiphyllum oxypetalum) The flower petals are pure in white colour with a tinge of yellow in the middle. And it has a very nice fragrance once it starts to bloom. Mysteriously, this beautiful flower will only bloom at night and only for one night. Its the most romantic yet saddest flower I've ever seen. I wished it lasted more than one night. Officially this is now my favourite plant☆彡
