Travelling: Off home!

December 23, 2011 § Leave a comment

Why, hello!

In about 8 hours’ time, I will be on the that Virgin plane on my way home to Sydney. I heard it has been raining and will be a cooler Christmas this year. Well Sydney, so long as I can still have some rays and crisp blue sky like the above, you and I will still be tight.

Looking forward to:

  • Christmas with the fam. I’m pretty chummed with the presents I bought them this year. Hope they like it!
  • Open space and clean air. I’m going to breathe in as much as my poor lungs could take it. Me, dramatic? NO!
  • People saying thank you, excuse me and respecting personal space. I know, people still do those! Shocking!
  • Catching up with friends and the goss. It’s been a while!
  • Priceline, Country Road, the markets…
  • Hitting the op-shops/thrift shops with my parents! They’re a cool bunch.
  • Nandos, kebabs, Krispy Kreme, KFC chips with chicken salt, good coffees(!), outdoor brunches, Thai food (!!!), the list goes on..
  • Being a couch potato when not doing the above

Not looking forward to:

  • Sydney’s public transport. This is where HK really shines.
  • Being broke from AU$ being high. Pah!
  • Looking at the scales at the end of this holiday.

I’ll probably blog since I will have a lot of spare time during the hols, but if I don’t… then Merry Christmas, people!

And the angel said unto them, “Fear not! For, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, Which shall be to all people. “For unto you is born this day in the city of David A Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, Lying in a manger. – St. Luke 10-12

Lots of love!

I found this great sushi place at Central sometime ago called Mori Sushi.

Their food is fresh and the portions are generous, none of those nigiri sushi with sad thin slices of salmon at the top. Their prices and service are great and the best thing, they’ll serve taro or lychee mochi at the end for dessert. MMMmmmm *rubs belly*…

Mori Sushi is pretty tiny though, with only about 4 tables and bar seating. So make sure you book before hand!

Mori Sushi: 34 Graham Street, Central // 2854 1800

I had lunch there the other weekend with my girlfriends and afterwards, we pottered around the vintage shops in the neighbourhood.

Wearing one of my favourite summer tops. My mum gave it to me and I’m not quite sure how old it is or where it came from, as she herself had forgotten. Someone later told me that this is Balinese lace, much like the ones Uluwatu makes. Don’t think my top is from there though,..

ps: Just realised I had my bag turned in in every shot! Ah well, will show you the bag next time!
pps: I promise I will not post pics of me wearing this pair of shorts again!

I love taking pictures of sunsets. The problem is… so do lots of other people.
Don’t you love if when you go on facebook and someone just posted massive number of sunset pics and you’re like… NEXT!

I guess it’s one of those things that you can’t fully appreciate unless you’re there.

So this is why I’m posting some pics of sunsets from Bali and Lombok.

I used my sunnies as a filter. Love the effect!

A quick outfit post from my Indo holiday. I tend to pack items that I can get multiple wear out of when I travel. Packing light = more room for shopping hauls. Simple.

Unbranded bow singlet // Country Road shorts // Havs // Charles & Keith sunnies // Longchamp bag
I bought this top in a night market in Taiwan a couple of years ago. I like it for its simple lines and it’s actually pretty long, so in a pinch, I can wear it as a dress. Maybe with a pair of jeggings.
just kidding, jeggings.. as if!

When we were in Bali, we visited the Garuda Wisnu Kencana cultural park which housed the giant statue of Vishnu, the Hindu God. It is unfinished at the moment so the head, hands and his ride, the mythical bird Garuda are separated in different locations.

It is a lovely place to visit, it’s not too crowded and on a nice clear day, you could even see the islands of Java from the hilltop.

J made me do this..

Spot the differences

On J: This is not a love song singlet // Zara shorts // Bvlgari sunnies
On me: Petit Bateau shirt // Country Road grey shorts // Havaianas // Charles & Keith sunnies

J bought this singlet from a cool edgy boutique in Seminyak, Bali. It you look closely, you can see tiny little blue and red anchors.

This is the first Wearing post for my sister, J! *cue canned applause*

J and I have pretty different styles; she’s a bit more edgy and trendy. Whereas I… I just let out that I’m actually 75 years old by using the word trendy. Who says that anymore these days? Clearly I!

We saw this gate decor in Seminyak, Bali during our shopping strip – I’m pretty sure they’re there for some celebration or ritual. I love how they add such drama to your doorways, no?

You can’t see her bag here but it’s made from the softest leather ever. I am secretly (well, I guess not so secretly anymore now) plotting to make it mine. *HINT HINT*

And here’s moi…looking worn out after shopping. My stamina’s gone down. I am 75 yo inside after all. Sigh..

Granny-style FTW!

Pic of my purchase – a dainty white dress with handmade lace from Uluwatu to come!
