I'm leaving on a jet plane...

I'll be flying off to Brisbane, Australia in about a month's time! To further my studies lah! And I think I should keep track of the expenses for the 1.5-year course because it is a once-in-a-lifetime trip! (Come to think of it, everything is a once-in-a-lifetime thing because the same time will never come again.) Can check out the link below that will record my monetary memories of this journey to Australia for another feather in my cap.




The best map of Australia I could draw


That's why I have been blogging about food recipes and taking photos of places in Singapore. I have a secret agenda! I don't want to starve in Australia because I will be staying in a self-catered hostel. There's only so much instant noodles I can eat right? Hahaha... Here's some boliao photos:

Wisma for Topshop and the blue aquarium


Wheelock Place for magazines at Borders and big fitting rooms at Zara


CK Tangs for Steven Lim, M.A.C and luxurious lingerie fitting rooms


Shaw for movies, MOS, Mango and "petites"


Petites ($1.50 for 3) from the bakery beside MOS burger at Shaw House's basement


Burger King's Mushroom Swiss Double is the best! You can pay more to get additional mushroom sauce or beef patties.

Just some of the places I went to recently so I can look at them when I feel homesick. Hopefully, I'll be concentrating too much on my studies to miss anything or anyone. (>_<") Remember to click on the link below!

sad to hear that you're goin away (won't adrian be very sad?) but happy for you that you get to experience a different life.

i've never had the chance to study overseas, although i very very much wish to. but all the friends i have that go overseas all tell me that its a one of a kind experience, and it will definitely have an impact on your life, somehow. no matter of you hate it or love it.


enjoy yourself, study hard and take care, ya? and do keep blogging when you get the time! :)

cheneille: As far as I know, UQ offers some of the better programs for communication. But since I am not going into Mass Comm. I have no idea. I also only researched for Masters program so I don't know about undergraduate courses.
