Food Hunting + Birthday Celebration

Hellooo how's everyone?
Hope you guys have a fantastic week!
If it wasn't, it's okay :) because everything happens according to God's perfect timing and planning. :)
Anyway, here you go, my food hunting journey!


Let's start with Maru Korean BBQ.
Went there as the weather was so cold and 
I was craving for Korean food and bibimbab (Korean rice cake)
(Also since I already been to Madtongsan for a few times so wanted to try out other new restaurants)


They got special side dishes and I love second one very much!
Probably because it was very refreshing to be eaten with so many more spicy and oilier food.


Kimchi Pancake!
Oh my gosh~ I love love love this. It tasted so good even it wasn't hot anymore.


Can't remember what was it but it was nice too!


I think this was Fish Cake Soup Oddengguk?
Anyway, I personally like the texture of the fish.
In my opinion, this restaurant was overally good in terms of food and service. 
There was so many people when I get there around 6stg in the evening so I had to wait for a few mins.
Probably because everyone was coming out for dinner at that time on Friday? I reckon


Another best thing to have during cold days --- hot drinks! Yay
I had hot chocolate from Starbucks!
I can't understand why people still order cold drinks during cold days XD
*No offend* You guys were just too strong! hehe


I love their New York Cheesecake!
 It had condensed and classy cheese taste! Aww ♥


Random picture among food pictures. My Beautiful Diary mask series.
I love Naruko's mask series more tho.


Tried out Pappa Roti at SunnyBank after seeing it from friend's blog post.
Haven't had one for a while since I last had one at west Malaysia few years back. 
Yea, it was originated in Malaysia.
And I can proudly say the buns are nice!!!


Bandung, rose syrup milk drink, a type of Malaysian drink.
Honestly, I don't have a good impression on Bandung.
At first, I wasn't really sure if I wanted to try it at Pappa Roti 
because I can barely remember the unpleasant taste of the one had in Malaysia.
I just don't really like it even I'm Malaysian... :(
Thank God the one I had at Pappa Roti wasn't that sweet and "eww" 
so I'm able to drink more of Bandung this time. :)


Yay! How sweet to have wanton even I'm in Australia?
But I was a bit disappointed by the fact that the pork in Australis has "weird" smell.
Anyway, I had a great time shaping "special" shapes for the wantons and eating them! Yumm ;)


Noodle Cup.
Havent had it for a long while since I thought they are really unhealthy :(



Went to Au Cirque at New Farm
for brunch with a bunch of friends to celebrate Vincroach's birthday yesterday.
It took us almost an hour to get there but yea still fine since it was just once in a while.


I had some sort of omelette with salmon topping and bean sprout inside.
It tasted really moist and the portion was a bit big for me. 
My friend tried some of it and can't understand how was I able to finish so much of it.
I guess this meal was nice to have a few bites of it but just too much to finish the whole thing.


Sarah's meal. Quite photogenic even it was simply taken in one shot. Don't you think so?
Didn't take photos of others' meal since I was too hungry that time @@


Jue's meal. Photo credit to Daniel.


Bryan's meal. Photo credit to Daniel once again.


Wish you enjoyed your birthday and forgive us for invited Mr Cockroach to celebrate with us too!
Let's the party begin......


After knowing the "presence" of fake cockroach, he became super tensed and alerted.
His housemates claimed that it wasn't with them.


No, Vincent! Don't leave us, we just wanna take a photo with you ;)


 Boooooom! Ahhhh~~~~~
Nah we were just kidding! :P


Picture time with Mr Cockroach! 
Haha. Don't feel secure so he insisted to cuddle their hands.


Group photo 1 with Bryan the photographer.
haha. Vincent was so insecure even Daniel putted his hands again his neck. 


 Group photo 2 with Esther the photographer.


 Party's over and time to go home... 


Anyway, once again, happy birthday Vincent!
Thanks for being such a warm, helpful and funny friend!


There will be more and more challenges and obstacles to come in the future.
May God strengthen you and keep you under His mighty hands.
Keep walking in faith and obey His words.
Wish you could continue to be a blessing to others and stay positive in life!

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him,
so that you may overflow with hope by the power of Holy Spirit.

Fruitful May

Yay finally have some time to blog after the hectic week which was full of assignments and tests!
Anyway, shout out for Friday! Wuuuhooo!


"Sweet" note and "sao bao" from friend which pulled me out from work


Curry puff from the same friend which was a bit too spicy to be my breakfast.
Whatever, I miss curry puff, the typical Malaysian food so much!


Hello Panda yay! People know me well. I love food! They kept me more motivated.
Friends are one of the best gifts from God! 


Evening sky view of Brisbane city which was taken from a moving car
so pardon me for the image quality. :P


Exercise time!
Went to "play" basketball with brothers and sisters in Christ few weeks ago
and had mini sport at church last Saturday.


Apparently, I need to exercise more and not only on special occasions!
The squat challenge in one minutes nearly "killed" me! 
I couldn't even get up with my own strength after 49 squats LOL
Well, for a moment, I felt sorry for my teammates 
because I almost let go the rest 30 secs not wanting to continue the squat challenge. 
Bla bla blaaa...
The consequent of having hectic sport once in a blue moon:
It took me days to recover from the serious muscle pain and made me walked like a zombie.
Can you imagine the pain when walking upstairs? Ouchhh



 Anyway, we got a bookmark and sweet colorful notebook for being the first runner up.

Every time we pray about something,
every time we sincerely take something to God,
God handles it, and God deals with it. - Max Lucado



Hmm.. think I should move more often.
Haha. But how? I'm a typical couched potato who love anime and don't like to move much.

Started to watch Innuyasha not long ago but couldn't enjoy it like what I did few years ago.
Probably because I've watched One Piece which hold a principle for not being too bloody 
as Innuyasha does for too long so I could hardly "accept" Innuyasha anymore.. 
Awww.. Innuyasha used to be my favorite. :') 


Tadaaa Chatime! Pearl Milk Tea!!
Drank it on a random Wednesday and I think my brain had included it to my Wednesday routine that 
I have to get one between a break that I have to satisfy my desire. 


It was way cheaper to buy a mask in Malaysia!!
But how, my skin was so so so so dry due to the weather.
Thus, I was "forced" to buy the expensive masks in Brisbane to "save" my poor skin.


And yay got a free 15ml sample of "Rose & Snow Fungus Classic Hydrating Night Jelly" 
for liking their page on FB. They were probably doing some promotion there.
Anyway, the effect of this gel was really good and the smell was pleasant as well. 


As a first year psychology student, I have to participate in some researches for the courses.
Therefore, I "had a hard time" rushing to sign up and attend the researches to fulfill the requirement.
Unexpectedly, I had a great harvest from one of the researches, a body image related research.
I was required to attend four discussion sessions for a month.
I've gained a different perspective towards body image 
and learnt how to embrace my body size as well as helping others on it too.
I'll blog about this someday in the future perhaps!
Feel free to request me to blog about it earlier too! Motivation is important hey! ;)


My first attempt to bake a cake!
It was a super easily made and special vegan cheesecake which is made up of tofu!
Yes, I'm not kidding, Tofu! Recipe from a Pilates instructor, Cassey Ho.
>>Vegan Cheesecake Recipe to Die For<<


Sneak peek of the future blog post. What caught their attention?
Stay tuned! Haha


I heard that it was about 34 degrees in Malaysia which was the opposite of Brisbane yesterday!
It was soooo cold yesterday that taking a shower almost took all my bravery.
So, keep warm for those who are in Brisbane and drink more water for those who are in Malaysia!
Take care everyone no matter where you are now! Jesus loves you! ♥

至给我的女超人,生日快乐!

父母是孩子心中的英雄。
母亲是孩子眼中永远的女神。



放手让从小看到大的女儿飘洋过海离乡背井
少了一个可以唠叨,倾述的对象
感谢科技发达,但是仍然好似看的到却触不到 
So near, yet, so far.
转身别离的那一刻
我想知道,你在想什么?
我知道我自己千头万绪。心如刀割。


我爱听你重复那讲过一百八十遍还在重复的故事。
我爱听你那喋喋不休的唠叨。
我爱让你念我早点上床睡觉,迟睡不好。
我爱吃你做的饭,朋友总是羡慕我有那么一个会做饭的妈妈。
好客的你,光荣骄傲的我,好朋友总是可以在我们家玩上一整天。
还记得小时候说过鸡汤里的马铃薯好吃,
你就总是煮给我吃。这样那样煮好吃,你也造收不误。



妈妈,谢谢你的爱。

谢谢你无畏不致的爱,
谢谢你对我那连弟妹都嫉妒的爱,
谢谢你在我生病的时候照顾我,
谢谢你为我担忧,为我生气,为我开心,
谢谢你没有放弃过我,
谢谢你的刀子口豆腐心,
谢谢你的循循善诱,
谢谢你无私的付出,
谢谢你不求回报的爱。

还有好多好多,太多太多道不完的感谢。
无从说起,无穷无尽。


答应我,
好好照顾自己,
累了,就休息,别累坏了自己。
想我了,就找我,不需害怕打扰。
如果怀胎九月,照顾了十几年的女儿,
连这点程度都做不到,那好像有点不孝。
妈妈放心,一天那一点的时间我是有的。
把时间给我爱的人,我愿意,因为是值得的。
因为你开心,我也开心。


或许文字不足以表达我的感恩和爱,
但我还是想说:“妈咪,生日快乐! 你是我的女超人,我爱你!”


耶稣爱你,我也爱你!
愿上帝赐福满满!

他 對 我 說 、 我 的 恩 典 夠 你 用 的 . 因 為 我 的 能 力 、 是 在 人 的 軟 弱 上 顯 得 完 全 . 所 以 我 更 喜 歡 誇 自 己 的 軟 弱 、 好 叫 基 督 的 能 力 覆 庇 我 .
