Can you meet me halfway, right at the borderline...

it's the fella's birthday tomorrow.
however having to accommodate my crazy, unexpected work schedules and the fact that the restaurant was already booked out a month ago, we decided to celebrate one day early.

so i took him to the new movida aqui, and i have to say i definitely prefer it to the one on hosier lane.

The birthday man...
you're no longer a boy, ok!!

oysters with watermelon dressing
anchovies with tomato sorbet

there was one more dish of wagyu short ribs
which i forgot to take a picture of when i hungrily dug in. but it had the most amazing mash which accompanied it

seafood paella
although i was already full i couldn't stop eating it!! most definitely will go back again just to have this. i think it's so worth the money with the large portions and generous amounts of seafood.

for dessert:

we skipped towards bourke street. and although i was already stuffed to the brim the extreme hot weather today made me craving for this..

pistachio gelato and watermelon granitas @ pellegrinis

ok now i'm busting out off my bettina corset top.. damn it... fatpig~fatpig

you are the one thing that i love and hate all at once

tonight i finally managed to get to gill's diner.
and the food was kinda amazing. between us we shared
~ deep fried zucchini blossoms stuffed with ricotta and orange served atop soft polenta and honey truffle
~ smoked eel croquettes with aioli
~ pasta dumplings with bay bug broth

the dumplings were a bit of a let down though it was a main
but the zucchini blossoms were really yum!! i've been looking for a place that served them and i found them really good.

dessert was the mini pecan pie at pie face.
if anyone has not been there it's really worth a try. my favourites are the steak pie which is really chunky and the pecan pie (although it is on the sweet side because of the caramel at least it comes in a small helping so it's not like you'll get sick of eating it)
it's really worth a go..

the fella liked the chicken pie i bought for him yesterday (which he only had for brekkie today) that he went back for seconds today straight after dinner..


it's one of those weeks where i only seem to feel exhausted and spent. but then again i don't really remember a time where i felt anything else.
where i just want to pack everything up and bid you farewell. because i am already so emotionally empty whereas you still seem to be constantly taking what you want without giving anything back.

at the moment, it's a continuous internal struggle with myself.
i'm trying to find a compromise between what i want and feel that i deserve, and that which i have. sometimes there are days that i reach a heartbreaking conclusion only to stop short at making a firm stand on things.

i suppose what i might really need at the end of the day is just a good holiday...

If only i were the emperor of the moon

annie leibovitz for vogue. hansel, gretle and the witch.

i love annie leibovitz's work!! it's so breathtakingly fairytale-like..

pissed tired and blue. monday-itis bug biting me in the ass
listening to one republic - all the right moves

just had dinner with the lovely b*tches. yes my dears you read that right.. i said lovely. and yes i love you too.
and don't you whatever me.

currently angry with chanel for not having what i want in stock.
oh you stuck up bitch that works there. yes it's chanel. so what?
now the credit note just lies there unclaimed. truthfully what i want is only like less than 50% of what he bought me and it's doing my head in constantly going : so how am i going to spend it???
even shopping is giving me a headache.

something is definitely not right.
what it is i just can't put a finger on it.
it's just something. it means something when not even chanel can make me happy//
i probably just need to take a deep breath in and focus my energies on something productive

my favourite has to be the last pic.. can definitely see why she's andy warhol's muse..

Bright lights & disco nights

Sometimes you find what you are looking for in the unexpected...

because when i begin to think that i already know everything there is to know about you, you can still manage to surprise me with the unexpected.
thank you so much for starting off the celebrations with the degustation dinner at attica and also surprising me with that present from chanel the other night out of the blue.

and now for some food porn~

i found that a few of the mains were rather disappointing, and this was one of them. peas in some broth, weren't that fantastic and truthfully tasted kinda like eating chlorofil.. urgh!*

i think out of all the mains this fish with almonds was my favourite one. i even attempted to steal some of kim's one coz i scoffed it all down really quickly~

followed by this steak with asparagus and cauliflower cream~
got pretty amused with this bee carving on the knife, coz i thought it was pretty cute~

truthfully the best part of dinner were the desserts~
this had cognac ice cream in it with mango and tangelo
violet ice cream!!! chef's version of a violet crumble.
i really like this one* but kim preferred the cognac ice cream one.
i wish they packaged their ice creams for customers to bring home!! i'd go back again just to eat their desserts..

the menu for the night~
and the man of the hour

and sometimes i swear you kinda know me better than i know myself.
like tonight when we were walking to buy groceries in russell street..

me: hey you know those leica cameras??
kim : yes i know what you are talking about.
me: really?? then what am i talking about?
kim: the hermes x leica camera righhhttt??? it's $8000...... pounds
me: really?? OMG!! so expensive!! OMG!! HOW YOU KNOW I WAS TALKING ABOUT THAT??

damn!! am i that predictable??

*more pictures from girl's night out next!! i just got them all developed today

Bad romance..

because at the moment i'm so massively annoyed that all i want to do is scream at you.
this friendship has reached it's an unbelievable toxicity level in my system that when i hear your name/see your face i either want to break something or even better break you into 100s&1000s.
there is no helping it that every single little thing that you do makes me sick and massively annoyed.

sorry but i don't know you anymore. you're not the person you used to be.
maybe then neither am i..

i'm looking for a way to tell your self-centered ass straight up exactly as it is.

because i'm massively pissy-annoyed
at least this is cheering me up at the moment

omg.. hate her or love her i don't really care
Lady Gaga definitely works those mcQueens!! i'm seething with jealousy!!

you had me at hello

photo credits: cedricbihr

and because my life is constantly a touch&go sorta lifestyle.
the writing bug comes and leaves as it pleases, yet deep inside i think that i can honestly say that i am still partially an exhibitionist even though there are times that i rather prefer privacy behind closed doors.

i still come back here even after long hiatuses because truthfully writing is one of my loves.

so hello there again.

i had an awesome birthday. thank to all my B*s. you are all my fabulousities and words cannot describe how much i love you guys
plenty of stories, bitching and oops i did it again.
and then again there were the people that thankfully i'm not stuck in a yellow submarine singing away my sanity. no matter what you all say, i still think that i would much prefer her not to be around me.
then again let's save this for another day. a visit to my shrink might allow me to solve this problem in a blink of an eye, then again maybe not..

the only thing i can promise is that there will be more pictures in the next post once i get them processed. yes you read that right, they are not all digital.

a spectacular mix of exotic imperialism

here is a sneak preview of the things that i promised.
some new jewellery from p.sly

i'm wearing 2 of my favourites in this picture.
the wrap me around your fingers charm bracelets

i think they're one of the better things i've made.
if you want more head over to the website to order *CLICK*


~currently listening to :
cobra starship x leighton meester.

~ addicted to: the lindt cafe on collins street. that place is so addictive it's bad for my blood~sugar levels

over the weekend i trooped over to the NGV for the salvador dali exhibition. i have to say it is a spectacularly mind-blowing exhibition.
the amount of detail and hidden meanings in his work is genius!!
sadly i wasn't' able to finish the entire exhibition even after 3 1/2 hours so probably heading back there again before it ends over the next couple of weeks.

ok back to work on the next couple of orders//

Somethings in life you just can't learn in school

i just attended melbourne uni's careers fair
and it was a whole load of bull and a good waste of 10 minutes of my time.
the entire room was filled with suits, with people only in the engineering and accounting firms ready to snap up wide eyed melbourne grads.

all i have to say was that it was g-a-w-d awful
where are the interesting people that are in the media and advertising industries?
where are the people that have something to do with the fashion industries?
i refuse to be chained to a table for the rest of my life facing some dull figures no really knowing what the f*k i'm doing.

only problem is i have my dearest mum breathing down my neck at the moment asking me what i want to do with my life.

shitty carreers expo at wilson hall sure didn't have any answers for me in the careers department. on days like this i think i should have gone to RMIT.

anyway, i've been away but i've definitely been up to things.
this saturday i'm shooting away for the things that will be coming up in p-sly's new line.
so watch out for that!

for all it's worth, sometimes surprises sure do come in lovely packages

pictures from 'Evil'-lyn's-"19th"-surprise-birthday party

dinner at sakura

toasting with the black-forest cupcakes with white chocolate ganache frosting
they had liquered cherries covered in white chocolate ganache in them that packed a little wicked punch.
there are a few liquered cherries left in the fridge at the moment. and although they taste pretty good it's like taking a shot of alcohol in the form of a cherry. yeah i made them THAT strong.

group picture

at the moment i really sarah!!
coz the first thing that she said after not seeing me for the last couple of months was this

sarah : lyn!! i'm off to japan in sept!! and guess what?? i'm going to attempt to steal the murakami panda for you!! hahahaha


did i ever tell you i you sarah lu??
for those complete in the dark about the panda it's this:

lv x takashi murakami multicolour panda.. how f*-ing cute is it?

black and white

i've always been partial to black and white when it comes to my fashion choices.
they both seem to always be the dominating colours in my wardrobe.

and i have to say this would be my ideal outfit.

now, time to put in the effort into creating it.

Halycon Daze

with me constantly going on hiatus from this place, i'm wondering if anyone still reads my blog anymore..

i wouldn't be surprised if there is none really..

anyway, i'm currently loving balmain
//the ripped jeans
//army jacket

but most of all their shoes! droolss...

how hot are they!!

*deep long sigh*

sometimes i really wish i had unlimited funds, especially with the fashion tastes i tend to rack up. it's an insatiable love i just can't seem to fulfill.

so these shoes are going onto the list

along with :
//chanel 2.55 in black ( i'm happy with the normal size, not even the jumbo!)
//chanel interlock CC necklace in black
// balenciaga giant part-time in anthracite with silver hardware
// CC Skye double wrap woven bracelet
// and the boots

the top 5 on my list. there goes me dropping a good 10Gs?? geez.. which bank do i have to rob?

anyway, on a lighter note

*while listening to kasabian's fire*
i love this song at the mo

i babysat DocBoss's grand-daughter on friday night
in between being bombed by various questions that i swear 6 y.o's aren't meant to ask me about sex and constantly wondering, who in the right mind allowed me to be anywhere near kids, i felt like i was being pranked. by someone in the upper echelons. G R E A T... just great..

i swear, being emotionally black-mailed by a 6 y.o for 4 hours ain't all that fun..
must be something really wrong with me if i chose to spend my friday nights that way

other than that i've been cooking up a storm.
i really should take more pics for food porn...

2 nights ago : pistachio and garlic stuffed chicken wrapped in prosciutto and served with asparagus

tonight: 6 hour slow braised lamb shanks with mash

and for dessert: custard apple tarts <- tastes good but didn't look so good.. i made my custard a tad too watery and it didn't set!! crap

oh and i've also made kirsch liqueuer cherries which are being set right now. if all turns out well i'm making black forest cake sometime this week.

i'm getting domesticated aren't i??
this is what happens when i get sick and can't go out...

pull the trigger.. let everything fade to black...

waking up to
//gastric pains
//the beeping sounds of you

extreme tulan-ness with my body at the moment
urgh.. puki at this rate like can x__x
it's just one of those days when i've had enough of my own skin

and the disturbed sleep in disturbia

i probably might be, could possibly be the only one that writes posts and not publish them
mostly because i don't want everyone that has ever, or will ever, read my blog to be traumatized for life by yours truly.

i am not the brightest
nor the cheeriest person alive

but i could possibly be the craziest...

and at this moment in time,
i wish i could puke all over someone
then laugh to sleep about it.

i'm just not able to keep food down at all at the moment...

when the bouts of insanity engulf you

sometimes i truly wonder how you can put up with my moments of insanity

// like when i manage to turn the whole living room into something that looked like a tornado just went thru it during exam periods
// when i forget all my important appointments and times
// when i cook up a storm in the kitchen and invite a whole buncha people to eat a 6 course meal
// when i have my bouts of insomnia for days on end
// with my poor eating habits
// with my penchant for tantrums and sulks

i think the list could go on and on
yes you have your faults too when you act like a spoilt*brat

but then again, you are the one that has to live with my insanity
thankfully sometimes you just know when to agree with me and go along with it
and when you know how to pull me back to reality

so know the bigger question is would you let me turn my space into an atelier.. which most likely will expand into other parts of the house? and will involve loads of S T U F F..

i think we need a bigger living room.. i miss my old apartment...

i want you under my covers on cold winter mornings..

it's friday//

yet i still feel like sh*t
but small things like this just tend to cheer me up
i know that this was released by Harper's Bazaar ages ago
but still..

just shut up and enjoy

only thing i didn't really like, was the LV ad..
it felt that it was rather.. dissapointing
