they are not gaping holes in life meant to be filled with activities.
my cave has been overflowing with so much it's so hard to keep track anymore!=[

The AIESEC Leadership Seminar
although late, watching Jack Shearer in action was hugely entertaining. His take on rendang; "your tongue can be arrested for what it does to your mouth." For the leader in you, it was a must-go. But fret not, another one coming soon in Melb Uni!
I-Ball + Afterparty at Velour
what can go wrong with good food, greater company and free flow of drinks for all the happy people? hehe, i was starstruck and silently nursing sore feet balancing on gold heels. watch this page for pics soon!
Puffing Billy + Tulip Festival + Yarra Valley + River Cruise to Williamstown + Chocolate overload at Max Brenners + Shopping + fantabulicious food
mummy dearest spoilt me silly. have been out of the trigger-happy scene for awhile, but the few days playing tourist brought the mind many memories and tummy much fat. Pictures not yet sent to me.
Photography Exhibition at Fed Square
the environmentalist in me came out from under the tempurung to main mata with pictures to drool over. see the world from above! in particular:
pearl white lookalikes = flamingos dotting the coastline
rainbow over the glacier formed between the mountains
Karaoke + Beach Club
impromptu night that started with AIESECers singing their hearts out, went midtempo with dancing, bounced higher with shotting with joyce adn thomas, and ended with us cold-walking the night.
Great Ocean Road
+ a dozen other touristy destinations we were made to visit. hahah melbourne has scenic sites too! loved the beaches, pictures and the waves, abhorred the heat, sitting right at the back of the bus and lunch.
Paintball @ Echuca
omgosh the suit! and the mask! sweat all around, bruises everywhere. fear traumatised 3/4 of thestudykakis, the rest were happily buzzing around shooting deadly pellets of colour into people's asses. an eventful day; bulk of which was spent on the road. the worst lunch. ever. (why are all provided lunches horrible?) verdict: i suck at this game.
Da Vinci Machines- An Exhibition of Genius
a genius indeed. recommended for the hands-on junkie who would like to get her hands dirty with testable machinery and/or the ignorant who would like to broaden her miniscule knowledge.
multi-tasker at her trying best. badminton + volleyball + lousy dodegball combo. interesting day that had all four faculties; Commerce, Law, Medicine, Engineering, working hard to destroy each other in the name of one measly trophy and tons of fun. ICSS triumphed a worthy runner-up. Hurrah!
Royal Melbourne Show
this money-eating funfair frustrated the shit out of softoy-hungry souls and ignited the spirit of rollercoasters. there's a very pretty ferris wheel too. Animal lovers rejoice! watch out for cuddly farm animals and stinky ones. Showbags galore and fireworks extravaganza. If you're lucky, you may go home with a huge soft toy in tow=]
Picasso: Love & War 1935-1945
give at least 2 hours to feast your eyes on pable picasso's artwork and dora maar's photography. the love story that unfolds along with the war. i cannot elaborate on picasso's interesting takes on women and myths as any word i use will be an understatement. see for yourself before the exhibition ends!
..and so the tired traveller rests.
