New Family Members

Honestly, I am not a person who is interested in having any pet as I think that it is too troublesome. It doesn’t mean that I don’t like them though.

Hubby loves to have an aquarium at home. He had been talking about it and had been googling about fish. When we stayed in the rented apartment he always wanted to buy an aquarium but I insisted that it was not a good time because we didn’t have enough space for it. Now that we have moved to our own home he has got all the space that he needs. 

Last Thursday when I got home from work I saw this empty fish tank sitting in the study room. I was wondering how come he didn’t buy any fish yet. According to hubby, the aquarium water needs to go through what they call the “Nitrogen Cycle” process where bacteria are slowly established in the aquarium to help with the conversion of ammonia to nitrite and then the nitrite to nitrates. (okay, I am not that smart to know all this stuff but I had received a lecture from hubby)

This process should take about a minimum of 2 weeks before fish can be safely added into the aquarium, but hubby couldn’t wait any longer before he could get his fish so he tried to speed up the cycle process by purchasing pure ammonia and a bacteria culture product. And off we went to an aquarium shop on the weekend to purchase his pets. =P

While waiting for hubby to choose his fish, I randomly took some pictures.

Okay, the final product is completed and he is happy now. He can just sit there and “watch” the fish swim here and there. **rolling eye** =O

So yeah, new “family members” in the house.

Wandering around in the city

Yesterday I headed to the city and meet up with August. It’s been ages since we last seen each other. I suppose our last catch up was on last summer, about 3 months ago.

Sorry gal, it’s been a while…

Since the SALE is still on, of course, we went for shopping! Before that we made our way to have some light lunch. We opted for Japanese food as both of us are trying to get some fat out of our body! =D

This scallop salad is really yum!

We decided to stroll outdoor as the weather was beautiful! The best thing to do is… camwhoring! =P

We managed to get some bargain cloths!**happy**

We planned to walk to the other end of the river. Unfortunately we didn't make it... too lazy as it is too far plus we were wearing heels!!!

Hence, we chilled at a café for some drinks.

My favourite drink during the winter – “Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows”

Some views infront of the café.

Having our tea break beside Yarra River… what a good view with a tasty yet beautiful cupcake!

What a wonderful day out! (“;)

Alright then, end this post with my favorite shot of the day! ^_^

June, favorite month, big surprise!

This post is back dated to 5th June, it was my birthday.

The weather was getting colder. Winter is officially here!

I woke up early to get ready as hubby was gonna bring me to the city (as now I am staying in the suburban which is not as convenient as previously when I was staying in the city) which takes us about 30 minutes by car. Plus, it was the beginning of the end of financial year SALES! Of course I won’t miss this event! =D

On the way to the city, the trees are all bald.

Initially after shopping in the city, we planned to go to Docklands to have seafood. Unfortunately, it rained heavily. We were lazy to drive around hence decided to have lunch at Chinatown instead.

There’s a newly opened Chinese restaurant so off we went to this restaurant to give it a try.

The fried oysters were the highlight. I don’t usually eat oyster but that was just stunning!

After lunch, we continued our shopping journey as I haven’t got my birthday gift yet! =O
With no luck I didn't get anything at the end of the day but I did get a few cloths and boots with a bargain price. Not as bad, right. At least something on my birthday… ** comforting myself**

We had our dinner at a modern Japanese bar, Wagamama at Flinders Lane.

We had Chili squid as entrée.

Our mains were Teriyaki Salmon and Braise Duck in Thai Curry.

The food was absolutely yummy!

Last but not least, *Black Forest* birthday cake from hubby… yum yum!

Few days ago, hubby mentioned there will be a surprise “birthday present” for me on Friday night (as last week I didn't managed to get anything for my birthday). It was kinda torturing as I kept thinking what hubby was going to buy for me.

Hubby showed me a Prada bag when he picked me up from work on Friday night! This is my first ever Prada, the nylon Jacquard+. Thanks so much, hubby. =)

Gosh! What a hectic month for me.

Finally we’ve moved into our new house.

My apology. I had been away for so long! It had been super duper busy for the past few weeks. You have no idea how tiring moving house is. There is way too much to be done… anyway, it’s all hunky-dory! =D

Took some random photos to share with you at my new house at Craigieburn.

Well, not 100% completed as some of the furnitures are yet to arrive.
In addition, the garden landscaping and the outdoor dining area are still in progress.

A spa bath for relaxing.

Okie dokie, that’s it for now. There’s more to come once the outdoors is completed.

Stay tuned people!
