if the weapon is your love, i got my hands up

 Just over 2 weeks till Christmas! I really wanna experience a white Christmas but Australia ugh. I'll be on a plane to Malaysia on Christmas Eve but that doesn't mean I'll be able to escape the summer heat because it'd be even more humid over there haha. 

 Joined the polaroid gang.

French Twist at Indooroopilly - look how amazing the drinks look, and so healthy too.

Summer reading! Just kidding probably won't even be done by the time summer ends because I'm just so unmotivated to read if it's not for school or anything. But I've heard great things about John Green's books and TFIOS constantly appears on my Tumblr dash so I thought why not. Hahaha. 

Hope you all are having a great holiday (if you're on hols) and if not have a great week!

we can burn brighter than the sun

Soooo a lot has happened since the last time I blogged - last days of high school, last block exams, graduation... It's just a bundle of mixed emotions and just feels so surreal that I've graduated like what am I even going to do with my life now??
So on the last few days we just celebrated by eating because why not, haha. 

Japanese lunch excursion at Sono Restaurant at Hamilton Portside. 

Ling, Sara, Sunny and I had a little graduation dinner at Aquitaine Brasserie. It was so hard to take photos because the lighting wasn't very good and I was using the kit lens which only went up to f/3.5 which resulted in most of the photos being blurry/shaky. Nevertheless, the desserts were amazing ahhhh.

Ok how did this become a food post hahaha but oh well. Sorry for the dodgy editing - I just used the default windows picture manager to edit the brightness/contrast because I don't have Photoshop atm. Anyway hope you all have a great week ahead! :)

Have a nice week ahead everyone!

TCOF '13

So on the weekend we went to the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers! 
Basically we went around looking at all these houses who participated in this annual garden competition thing and the effort the residents of Toowoomba put into planting these flowers are seriously amazing.

Lunch at a cafe called the Chocolate Cottage - about 10 mins or so from Toowoomba CBD. 
Homemade lemonade + focaccia = yums. It really is in a nice little cottage and you get to sit outdoors and there's a pretty mountain view except half of it is blocked by hedges.

 This was the reserve grand champion's house!

This house also had like a man-made waterfall like what??

Went to the State Rose Garden except I think it's still a tad early hence half of the roses haven't fully bloomed yet. Another week or two would've been perfect.

Then we went to Queens Park where there were all these beautiful flower beds it was literally like heaven.

 This little girl happened to be in the picture but her dress perfectly complements the yellow flowers hehe.

Oh and also the lighting was fab it was around golden hour! 

Soz sis I had to focus on the flowers ;)

Just look at the gorgeous shades of purple.

The drive home. Tried to chase the sunset but we were going in a different direction oh well.
