Through the tunnel

0118: Full tennis day! 11am-11pm. Yes, I’m hardcore like that! Had tickets for that night’s match at RLA but didn’t wanna go see Hewitt battle it out against Nalbandian so managed to sell those ticks off at the gate that morning (at cost price yo – I just wanted them gone!). In turn, scored ground passes at $29 a pop, massive stalkage in progress ie. Stosur, Kirilenko, Roddick, Gasquet, Henin, Clijsters, Djokovic and……. FEDERER. THAT’S RIGHT. FEDERER BABY! There was a MASSIVE crowd of people watching him practice on court, as I tried to squeeze my way through the front. I’m about 3-4 people away from the front of the fence, and little by little, everyone started to move out… schwing~ I made sure I got my foot in to claim their spot! And whatdoyaknow?! Maybe 30 minutes of paparazzi snapping of McFed, I got through to the front of the fence! After Federers practice session, he. came. directly. AT. ME. ….. ME!!!!! He came up to me (out of everyone else – mwahahaha) and took MY sharpie (that I specifically bought for the AO) and signed my giant tennis ball and used it to sign everyone elses things! HE CAME TO ME FIRST… AND USED MY SHARPIE. HEH! Fangirling in progress… holy crap balls. I made damn well sure that I got that sharpie back! “Security! SECURITY! SECURITY! That’s my sharpie, can I get that back when he’s done!! I WANT THAT PEN!” Security guards pretended to throw my sharpie away – HEH – but gave it back. Mwahaha, so now I have Fed’s autograph on my jumbo tennis ball AND a sharpie with all his germs all over it. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Fed, you are amazing, a legend… GOAT. <3 <3

0119: Home time… NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! 😦 woke up early, loitered the city, grabbed myself a cuppa (tea), a light breakfast at pie face (yum!) before heading back to the hotel to check out. Friend and I did some more loitering before having another bite (for me) at Passionflower. My passionflower cravings have been satisfied (although, I much prefer the passionflower in Syd). Mmmmm… black sesame ice cream!! <3 My cousin later picked us up at the hotel, we went to grab another bite at Brunelli (haha piggy me) before getting dropped off at the airport. Le sigh. Security deflated my jumbo ball.. BOOO. Bid my farewells and back home I went to crazy ass 36 degree weather. Melted. 😦

Eyes Never Lie

Howdy readers!!

It’s been a while since my last bloggism but hey! I’ve got lots to say and lots (and I mean LOTS) of piccies to share! Oh snap yeah.

0108: we had a farewell for A as he’s moving to Perth for his career… the night kicked off at the Hotel Richmond where we scored a few too many match boxes… haahha! We then moved over to Lyrics for some Karaoke and drinks… the messy night ended with the crew ordering AB (a combo of hot chips, lamb, sauce, green mango, onion? – Tastes KILLER! :)~~ But none for me as I’m trying to eat right… heh!) and heading out to a secluded park in the city in the middle of the night to devour the goodness of it all!

Fast forward to:

0114: and I have new internets!! It’s worth a mention cause it’s SO. FREAKING. FAST. Files that used to take me DAYS on end to finish off downloading, now only takes a mere 20minutes! And youtube… oh youtube, I no longer have to wait for you to buffer before I can watch a clip. It just happens straight away! Amazement… I have been missing out!! πŸ™‚

0116: MASSIVE.. MASSIVE WEEKEND. I haven’t had a weekend like this since my days in Syd!! Early wake up call and headed to the airport to catch my flight to Melbourne for a weekend of Tennis. Oh yeah~ Had some food, did some window shopping and then headed to RLA for the Rally for Relief charity match! LOVED. IT! LOVE FEDERER, RAFA. LOVE LOVE LOVE. ❀ I got a tshirt tan on my chest after waiting in the sun after the match ended… oh the memories. LOL. Had sichuan hotpot with a whole bunch of peoples mainly Adelaidian bred, a few Melbournians and a Sydney sider (Sydney represent!) followed by many drinks and a helluva good time at ‘Cookies’ – a (gay?) bar. I, for one, felt like a grandma so bedtime rolled around at 12 along with P and V. Everyone else? Partied hard! HARD. πŸ˜‰

0117: AO commencessssssssss!!! A late start for us, but we head to the AO around 3ish loitering around, checking out the courts, checking out the players and spending way too much on mediocre food. Heh. Had tickets to the RLA match that night, sat through Groth’s match with Wickmayer pummeling her ass along with Djokovic advancing to round 2 with an easy win against: . We littered out of the venue, went back to our hotel rooms, freshened up and proceeded another night out at the cas – Hello Crown!
