Homesick.. All over again…

It’s CNY eve. Time for awesome food, great company, card games, mahjong, shandy, pineapple tarts, family reunion dinner, cookies and nuts. But I am stranded all the way here in Brisbane. Leaving Melbourne for Brisbane actually made it worst. I’m flooded with such homesick feeling. I now officially miss Malaysia and Melbourne. Damn.

Flinders Station, Melbourne

So much has happen.

Cherry season is over, and it’s almost time to leave for home. Brisbane will be the last stop of my entire journey here in Australia. Tonight I am just feeling ever so down. I will probably update this blog again soon. Just can’t find the right words to put into this entry.

Anyway, Happy Chinese New Year to all who are celebrating, and to all my Malaysian friends and family, Happy Chinese New Year and happy holiday! It’s the year of the dragon so let’s all just get a bad ass dragon tattoo.

Lots of love from down under,

Michelle xoxo

Wrapping up 2011

It’s been a roller coaster ride for me. Been away from home for way too long, went on an exciting journey without knowing whats next. I have done things I would never imagined myself to be doing. Missing Christmas, and soon CNY. Lost some one, found new friends and definitely slowly accepting the fact that Mahmah is no longer with us.

Going to spend my new year’s eve in Melbourne. Wish I could share this with everyone back home.  Wish they were here.

So much joy and laughter, tears and pain. Just so blessed to have been alive everyday. Good bye 2011 and HELLO 2012. Hope it’s gonna be a better year for all of us. Party hard and stay safe people.





I have been working hard through out winter. And I finally got off the whole working cycle. I’m going to resume where I left off in Perth. Adelaide here I come!!


Traveling to Adelaide by The Overland, Great Southern Rail. Woke up pretty early this morning. Look zombified, so no self portrait of me here :p

The train ride will take roughly 10 hours and 30 mins. It’s a long 828km from Melbourne to Adelaide. Fuh. My butt is gonna be square when I reach! Anyway I am so excited, I have been waiting for this day to come 6 months ago. Will blog soon. And baby, if you are reading this, I just want u to know I’m thinking of u :)

Colours to my winter: Alumbra

Haven’t been anywhere since I started working (this is bad). I seriously miss those days where me and Mei wake up in the morning somewhere in Perth, then put on something comfy, grab my camera, sunnies and the map and start walking around and exploring. Also I miss moving around from one point to another. Been too comfy in Melbourne. I just can’t wait till September ends, then my adventure will resume.

It’s hard to explain the state I am in right now. Won’t say it’s the best and most happening period, but I guess this is just a point of transition. Anyway I met a few friends here in Melbourne, won’t say that we know each other very well, besides that we are all from Malaysia, we all have one thing in common, we love to travel.

We met each other not even for 24 hours, we decided to go clubbing at Alumbra and then make a road trip to Brighton Beach and to Peninsular Hot Springs. Awesome. This is what I am talking about.. Adventure.

First up : Party pictures taken in Alumbra, Docklands on Forever Fridays!

Docklands at night



The average temperature at night is about 4-6 degrees, and it’s not even winter. Sometimes it is so cold it hurts.

This is the time where I get homesick the most. Not only missing everyone at home but the weather too.

I hate grey gloomy skies.

Anyway, it’s the 3rd month of autumn, going into winter soon. I have noticed most of the trees slowly shading its leaves, and some tree leaves starts to turn red.

It’s just beautiful.
