Woke up at 6:30am yesterday for one of the most random thing I've ever done for awhile. Thank God for Chow Vi (The Connex Expert) for following me to Heidelberg Hospital. If it wasn't for him I will probably be lost wandering in the suburbs.
Spent 3 hours in the hospital undergoing a fMRI scan as a volunteer for an Interactivity Brain Research. Had to lay down in the scanner for about 1 hour answering questions about Blood Alcohol Concentration and Global Warming by pressing buttons repetitively. And why volunteer?
All for the sake of $100 :) My first time earning $100 AUSD and it feels so good!!! I need a job, period.
On the lighter side, spent the evening at Gravity Bar for two purposes:
Lina's 18th Birthday
And Malaysia's 50th Year of Independence
And it was our first time clubbing together. Haha.
Desperate times calls for desperate measures......
Random pictures just to update the blog, bleh :X
These pictures were taken when we were at Crown/Circus Entertainment center.
It's been ages since I last played Air Hockey and it was great fun :_)
Today's scrumptious dinner courtesy of Chow Vi and Aik Sin. Sorry Pearly you missed out heaps :(
And the rabbit (Dinner) has grown since - fatter.
Yet another random outing and this time to the Zoo!
Me, Ben, Pearly, Chow Vi, Ching Yi, Ian Soo
Remember the movie Madagascar? These were the little buggers
The leader of the pack.
Did you know that Meerkats rotate their duties around? This Meerkat is supposed to look out for enemies and warn the others when trouble comes. It locates itself in higher ground for scouting purposes. Cool eh?
Self timer action!
Love or Hate?
Posers trying to act cute. -____-"
Didn't know ostrich were that dumb. It was eating bird shits and the Zebra just looked at it.
Pretty funny sight.
The red soil of western Australia
The snake bit Ben and it was a picture perfect moment. Ouchies
And viola, our trip to the village of orang utans and elephants. The "village" was pretty well constructed. They even installed heaters around the place to give the warm feeling of Thailand/Malaysia. You could even find paddy fields and banana plantations at the Zoo.
....and there were no wild monkeys. Bleh
Spent 4hours+ at the Zoo and it was terrific. First time going there and it is worthwhile place to go back but you need more than 4hours to cover the whole place. I didn't get to see the penguins!! Disappointing :(
Sadly our plans to go to the Zoo went down the hill after we found out that the Zoo closes at 5pm on weekdays. So where to? Essendon DFO. It's my first time here after prolonging for ages. IMO however, it is not that great. DFO at Spencer would equate to the needs of the shopper.
Looks like some super huge Megamall BUT it's in conjunction with many other furniture shops and JB Hi-Fi.
After much shopping at DFO we returned home and cooked dinner.
And all these doing is for the sake of Pearly
Yet another weekend of the same routine but this time around Pezhmen and Kharlene paid us a visit. It's been awhile since we had a drink with them. The night was pretty good at the start until things turned sour at the end. It involves burning Marc's feet, Aik Sin getting into a major argument with Marc and a double headbutt by the Sumbo's at Marc to knock him out. Hahaha
Random Days .... taking random shots. Loving night portrait shots.
How cool is this drink? Beats Red Bull anyday
And finally my jersey is here :) Thanks Dana!
Sadly, Man Utd lost :( The last time I got a new jersey, Man Utd lost to Arsenal (Adebayor) Superstitious?
To welcome Pearly to Melbourne for her first time, we brought her to Greco's Crown, I've been here for 4 years and I've never been to Greco's myself. The usual joined the celebration and as you can see we stuffed ourselves with sinful cakes.
Talk about randomness, Marc and I bought a pet rabbit for no reason and named him Dinner. Maybe the pet game at Facebook partly played a part in our random quest.
