I am currently experiencing writers block and am far too drained to rant about what I have been getting up to so I will do the lazy and rely on pictures instead. Since I do not have snapshots of me doing actual labour (imagine me slogging away in two nights pj’s hunched unattractively over my laptop with empty packets of salt&vinegar chips, mugs, papers and books enveloping me like vultures circling the dead), it would seem in the photos below that I have just been mucking about but truth be told, it has been a very stressful couple of weeks. I have yet to upload my most recent photos taken in Sydney so I will do that once I get more menial work out of the way. But in the mean time, this are pictures taken over the past 2 months and a wine night to bid farewell to two good friends who were down in Melbourne for a short visit. Amanda from KL and Karl from Bombay. Miss you two already!!

*The comics above do not reflect the best of my creative potential*

So there you have it. Images missed here would be me at a Missy Higgins concert with Amera (along with an auditorium of loyal Lesbian fans), a Miss Saigon show (what a disappointment), my shocked expression when Amera revealed ‘the portrait’ (the next focal point of my blog entry – funny story), me being thrown about in the wind on the streets of Melbourne AND Sydney (Sydney is NOT warmer than Melbourne. Do not be fooled by images of Bondi beach)….etc. Images in my next entry > me and my new extended family in Sydney (Yes I have a new mum!), walking under the rain on George Street, at the theater show of Priscila Queen of the Dessert ( *****1/2), delectable dishes at the Shang and my battered umbrella (poor girl, never stood a chance against the vicious winter).

Due to a much delayed last minute option to visit KL between 16th of June and 16th of July, suffice to say I might now be stuck in Melbourne for winter due to the popularity of Malaysia Airlines. Fully booked till July! Can you imagine that?? 😦 Someone please suggest other alternatives that won’t put a hole in my pocket. (unless you can offer an auxiliary financial source that won’t require me to stand around dark street corners).

    but by the moments which take your breath away.all the while you were gone… every day i would read your header,, and think about how you were living one of those moments right now….glad to have you back!!!!!

  2. definitely too late now.. but a month ago, MAS tickets were going off at AUD810 for a return ticket!… but spending winter in melbourne aint that bad.. a perfect excuse to hibernate throughout the day… would be doing just that if I hadn’t blown my cash on a ticket back to KL just so I could renew my passport…
