This is one of my favourite things I’ve drawn. And that poem by Anna Peters always gets me

 

  1. DESIGNATED SURVIVOR. My parent’s friend recommended this. I loved it so much that I’m slowly rewatching the series to see what I missed the first time around. I wish Tom Kirkman was the real POTUS
  2. Man in the Iron Mask – I love movies about honour, camaraderie and bravery
  3. Sugar is honestly one of my fav songs and videos ever
  4. My favourite plain white teeKinde co Tshirts! I know it’s a kids brand, but I don’t even need to wear the largest size and a few of my friends fit them too!
  5. Step – Vampire Weekend
  6. Just try to get over the Filipino accents – omg this rendition of Hallelujah. I can’t believe that the boy won, the girl’s voice and how she made this song her own is just, I can’t. Trust me, if you listen to this, listen to the girl and the end when they’re both belting.
  7. Jack Burger from Mate Burger – a Filipino food truck. Justin and I have seriously gone to Mate Burger three times in the last few months (maybe this is why I’ve gained weight haha). They also have taho!
  8. THE KOREN FRIED CHICKEN FROM RED PEPPER IN STRATHFIELD
  9. While we’re talking about KFC, pickled vegetables. I could eat this every day
  10. This photo of Benji

Isn’t this just beautiful and relatable?

  1. A lot of people asked me where in the world I was when I posted safari photos on Instagram stories early this month. I was in Werribee Open Range Zoo in Melbourne, which is a lot of fun and pretty good value at $35 for adults
  2. The buttermilk pancakes at Pancake Parlour (Melbourne) kick Pancakes on the Rock’s butt
  3. If you feel like being sad, listen to Bon Iver – I can’t Make you Love Me
  4. I’m a little late to the party, but I loved Hidden Figures. All the women in that movie are so kickass
  5. Justin is frustrated with me because he’s been trying to get me into Hamilton the musical for a year maybe and it’s only now that I’m getting into it and actually more into it than he is lol. When I fangirl, I fangirl HARD lol. My fav songs now are Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, Sir (I an pretty much rap the whole of those two songs), and Guns and Ships. Also Dear TheodosiaThat Would Be Enough and Helpless in the mixtape. I’m not gonna lie, I have been trying to learn all the raps and the one for Guns and Ships by Daveed Diggs is just nuts, I get tongue tied.
  6. Guns and Ships needs its own number. Honestly just look at the lyrics and speed. AMAZE #goals
  7. My work has a loaded pantry and fridge so since coming on in January, I have gained 6kg D: #CovataKilos Short stop donuts have probably contributed, too. So I have been going on a sugar cleanse and having a sweet tooth, I knew I needed something sweet to curb cravings. My two three favs are coconut water, peanut butter and protein balls 🙂
  8. I have been behind in my reading my book this month – A Thousand Splendid Suns. This is by the same author as the Kite runner. The first few chapters were already sad so I wasn’t so keen on reading, but it’s a good story so far
  9. Black Mirror 😐 Esp the first episode omg.
  10. Brooklyn 99 is one of my fav shows, it actually makes me lol. But from the newer episodes Moo Moo is my fav episode, going deeper and reflecting what’s going on in the US at the moment. It just goes back to my post about art imitating life
  11. Jimmy Kimmel talking about his son’s birth ❤
  12. Have you heard Harry Styles singing Landslide with Stevie Nicks?
  13. Not sure if you’ve been following the Love Stories series? The stories I’ve been able to share have been beautiful. I just feel so lucky to read and share them. Thanks to everyone that has been participating, sharing and reading xo

Love Stories

 

The above photo is cover art that a high school friend did for my Love Stories series ❤

  1. Have you seen the video of Mika Kunis doing a reno on her parent’s house? Her parents are just the cutest thing ever. And just observing how Ashton fits in with their family. I seriously watched the whole video lol
  2. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. I admit I cried a little and also I just like Chris Pratt (and his whole fam)
  3. Mcfly songs, in particular, It’s All About You. Can we just take one second to appreciate how handsome every single member of the band is? There is just no ugly one in the band. Maybe their ugly band member was each of them when they had ugly haircuts haha Also Tom and Danny’s (esp Danny) are so good!
  4. Speaking of Mcfly, have you seen Tom’s wedding speech?
  5. The song and music vid – That’s What I Like by Bruno Mars. So talented
  6. MOCHA HOT CROSS BUNS
  7. Caffe Roma in King’s Cross. Best pasta and service! If you go you have to get the burrata starter
  8. From This Moment – Shania Twain and Backstreet Boys!!!!! The story at the beginning about her parents!!!!!!!
  9. Jo Koy is tied first as my fav comedian (with Trevor Noah). His Netflix special killed me
  10. Another Netflix thing – Dear White People series. OMG. Binge watched the whole series within 12 hours

The photo above was taken at my cousin and good mate’s wedding last year. They just sent Thank You cards and photos last week, including this one 🙂 It was such a fun wedding. And also Justin’s black eye. He got it playing basketball, when his mate head butted him. Dammit Jude. Jude is also his physio, I thought they were meant to heal?! Also Jus says I never post about him

  1. Trevor Noah’s book Born a Crime is so good. When I read, it’s in Trevor Noah’s voice recounting stories of growing up coloured (half black, half white) during the Apartheid in South Africa
  2. Arctic Monkey’s cover of Tame Impala’s It Feels Like We Only Move Backwards
  3. Speaking of Arctic Monkey’s Miley Cyrus’ cover of Why’d you Only Call me When You’re High
  4. Another music fav, I would just make this all music if it wasn’t for Trevor Noah. John Mayer’s The Edge of Desire. Justin only showed me this a few weeks ago. Apparently the speech inspired him to go after me when we were fighting in the early stages of our relationship lol
  5. Uncle Ming’s whisky and apple juice goes alright!
  6. My to-do list at work from my boss
  7. Recreating photos
  8. The song and the video for Tilted are amaze
  9. This is a bit lame, but I also really like my job. So much so that I came to visit on my day off. Because it was bring your puppy to work day.
  10. March Madness is basketball right? Last night in semi’s Jus scored a buzzer beater in over time. All his team ran to him and one even carried him. Great game
  11. The soul in River
