Burnt, Toasty Royal Oranges

So who watched the Royal Wedding?
And who thought Kate Middleton was the luckiest 'commoner' on the planet?!
And who was supremely jealous?!
If anyone asked me those questions,
I'd be forced to answer "MEEE" to all three.

I watched the wedding last night with my aunt and a few other Filipina women,
all of whom kept commenting on how skinny Kate Middleton was,
or how plain her dress was.

I kind of agree with the former (apparently she lost some weight for her wedding and consequently had to have her wedding band re-sized, as well as her engagement ring, which was Princess Diana's)...
her sternum seemed a little gaunt...
HOWEVER, I have complete empathy for her because she was preparing to marry a PRINCE!
Imagine the stress! 
And most would-be brides try to lose a few before their wedding because of the paranoia.
At first I agreed with my aunts about the simplicity of the dress but as the night wore on,
and more close-ups of the dress graced the tv, I got to see all the details of the dress
and concluded that she looked beautiful.

Admittedly her dress was on the 'simple' side, 
but how can you expect a wedding dress like Diana's from '81 in 2011?

Princess Diana's dress was suitable at the time and so Cinderella-like.
Had Kate worn something so puffy and fluffy, people would've laughed!
The more I look at photos of Kate's wedding dress, the more I love it.

But seriously, Kate is so beautiful, inside and out!
Every time she's in public with William, she's always got this smile on her face
and she's never done anything to taint her reputation in the 9 years she's
been William's on-again/off-again girlfriend.
I want to be BFFs with her so badly...
Yes, I have a girl-crush on her.

But... wow.
From a 'commoner' to Princess William of Wales, Duchess of Cambridge.
I had butterflies (and intense jealousy coursing through my veins) the whole time I was watching the wedding.
I want to marry a prince :(

And might I add that Prince Harry looked rather dashing ;)

Wills and Harry

If William was allowed to marry a commoner,
 then that means Harry should be as well, right?

there must be millions of English girls signing up for the navy 
(or whatever part of the military Harry works for)
as we speak,
hoping to have their own little 'dream come true' story with Prince Harry...

But enough about the Royal Wedding,
here are some photos I took about 3 weeks ago.
I really like the colour of this jacket
and the rope-belt on this maxi.
I'm so short I have to wear this maxi with heels though ...
it's just so sad.

Lastly, a montage of photos of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
 that make me melt and want so badly to have a wedding hahaha

Kate Middleton

Yes, William's bald spot ruins the photo 
but it's ok because she's shorter than him and can't see it.

This is William and Kate having a moment,
and possibly giggling about an inside joke.

And the footman in the back with glasses looks like Harry Potter's fat twin.
But awwww those two are just too cute!
Oh, I'm melting so much that I can't even feel the jealousy anymore.

" Marriage is intended to be a way in which man and woman help each other to become what God meant each one to be, their deepest and truest selves.
 It is good that people in every continent are able to share in these celebrations because this is, as every wedding day should be, a day of hope."

A polished look

These were taken around Christmas... yeah, really old.
I meant to post them but I kept getting lazy forgetting.

I really like the black and red one, 
it kind of reminds me of Spiderman!
Go spidey go!

I have wrinkly hands, I know.
But think, with wrinkles comes wisdom
yeah, I made that up.

Anyway, on to the explanations about...

1) "The person with the weird laugh"
was actually someone from last year who was in one of my tutorials...
and after I met him, I thought to myself,
"I could really see myself liking him... hmmm" (it sounds so calculated, doesn't it? Hahaha!)
but the thing is, instead of saying something cool and suave at the end of the tutorial like,
"Hey, where you going now? I could walk with you... ?
(As you can see, I actually don't know how to be cool and sauve)
I just stood up and walked out of the room without even a quick "bye".
I didn't know what to do! 
And during our next tutorial he sat with some other girl haha
Oh well, you snooze, you lose.
One year later, about a couple of weeks ago I was walking to a lecture
 and suddenly realised that I was walking behind this person.
I... slowed down my pace and just admired from afar :D (what a coward...)
And when I looked closer I thought, "Dayam, he hasn't changed a bit!" 
But when I got to a free table outside my lecture hall (lecture hadn't started yet) to do some revision,
I heard this ridiculous and loud laughter. 
I looked up and it was him hanging out with these girls, laughing like a really drunk hyena.
I felt so embarrassed for him... to be blessed with such an ugly, nerdy laugh.  
Needless to say I don't think I could like him anymore.
His laugh is too weird.

2) "The severed head"
was my Linguistics tutor informing me about the labs for the MSLT.
I wasted about 40mins of our 1hr tutorial asking my tutor all about Speech-Language Pathology 
(one girl kept looking at the clock in an irritated fashion... sorryyyyyy :P)
it turns out that he's a tutor for the Masters Linguistics courses for the MSLT!
Anyway, he was telling us how one day one of his MSLT students walked into his lecture 
with a shocked expression on her pale face.
She explained,
"In our Anatomy lab the tutor just yanked out a severed head from a bag without even warning us..."
I freaked out... just A LITTLE BIT.
You see, in deciding that I wanted to pursue an MSLT, 
I completely overlooked that fact that we'd be expected to do any type of Anatomy (really stupid of me, I know).
Right after that story... I actually considered choosing a different career path for a few minutes because there's no way that I'll be able to stomach cutting open a dead persons head 0_0
 But I quickly realised that we must take the good with the bad.
I will just have to build a bridge and get over it!

This is where hobos sleep at night in Albert Park. I promise it doesn't look like this cool in real life.

3) "The deadly acorns"
is nothing too exciting.
There are dozens of hundred-year-old (?) acorn trees at Albert Park.
I walk through Albert Park every morning on my way to Uni.
And because it's autumn, 
these really hard acorns keep falling off the damn trees and hitting me on the head >:(

And there you have it.
Stuff I said I would explain more than a month ago.

Here are some daisies, just for you.

Hope you had a good weekend mes cheries!

Baby Blue Bow

Dress and belt from Trademe, red bangles from Portmans, ring from Diva, DIY bracelet is actually a handbag handle to which I added red ribbon, candles from my aunts living room (haha)

Took some night-time photos with candles! 

"Teapot" photo, 
just for you my dear Nicky ;)

Well, well, well.
It seems that every time I post something on this blog, it starts with,
"So sorry I haven't posted in so long!"
Well, as a dear friend said to me recently,
"Uni kicked in".
Fifi and I have been really busy and although I've been checking this blog daily,
hoping she'd put something new on it 
(I don't see my co-blogger in the flesh anymore :( )
I don't put anything on it myself.
Really, really bad, I know!

I distinctly remember that on the last post I made,
I said I would explain a few things concerning 
(let me quote myself now),
"The person with the weird laugh.
The severed head.
The deadly acorns."

But I'm too tired right now so I'll have to do the explaining tomorrow :P


P.S. I've started drawing again! 
After taking a break from Uni it is so nice to pick up a pencil 
(and not have to draw graphs)
and relax.
Hahhhhhhhh ! <- (supposed to sound like a realllllly long sigh)
