Merry Christmas !

Merry Christmas to everyone! 
Hope everyone have a good Christmas this year. 

This year Christmas was pretty good to me. I'm glad that the weather wasn't too hot. We don't celebrate White Christmas in Australia. All I hope is not extremely warm on that day!

Sarah & Aaron's Christmas Tree.
Not an ordinary but coolest Christmas Tree.

Finally, my trip is ended and I'm looking forward back to Melbourne soon!

The Overland from Melbourne to Adelaide

It is really rare that I updated live in my blog. But since I've paid $24 for all day internet, I should fully use the internet usage and make sure it's worth it.

Yes, interstate travel by train has ticked off one of my list to do in Australia.
The trip was alright. I have spent 10 hours for the train ride from Melbourne to Adelaide. To be honest, it's not that interesting. I could have reached in Adelaide within an hour by taking flight from Melbourne. Scenery is just fine, all I see is desert, sheep, cows, horse, and trees. Except there was an old man been rambling for

At least, I experienced it.
Once is enough.

Maybe driving to Adelaide will be more interesting than taking a train.
We will see if I got chance to do so!

Departed from Southern Cross Station. Almost one stop for every hour.

If it wasn't long ride, I would really enjoyed taking this train. The spaces between the seat is wide and comfortable. The good thing is we are also allowed to bring foods and drinks. If you would like save the hassle of bringing food along, you can buy

It was heartwarming to see that the passengers were finally reunited with their families who have been waiting in the terminal.

Hugs, Smiles, Talking and Laughter..
Overall, after spending 10 hours on the train, now it seems more tolerable.

This trip was totally unplanned. I have no idea where to eat and where to visit tomorrow.
It is my first visit. Hopefully it will be nice exploring day tomorrow.

Blogger Bingo @ The Cullen Hotel

You are invited join us for Nuffnang’s first ever Blogger Bingo night!
And we’re not talking about your grandmother’s bingo night. Together with the Art Series Hotels, we’re bringing the bingo experience to a whole new level on Tuesday the 26th of November at The Cullen Hotel. There will be awesome prizes up for grabs, crazy bingo lingo, and delicious finger food. Not to mention, it’ll be a great chance to meet and mingle with other bloggers, including the lovely MC for the evening: Candice DeVille of Super Kawaii Mama. Winning!

I wasn't aware of this event till Valissa - the organiser of Blogger Bingo emailed me about what's happening on 26th of November. I mean how could possibly say no to this event especially when comes to bingo? It is one of my favourite games though I never had the chance to win the games before.

Finished my work at 5pm and headed to the Cullen Hotel by taking tram 72. It is located at Prahran and easily accessible to public transport. Less than 30 minutes, I could just reach the destination! I used to pass by this building whenever I took route 72 to city. At first, I thought that this is an apartment instead of hotel !

On my way to the top floor, I met one of the bloggers - Curves to Kill. She looks stunning!  But at the same time, it hits me that I'm totally under dressed for blogger bingo event! Oh noooo.......

Forget about being under dressed. Lets focus the view on the balcony. It was such a great weather in Melbourne on that day!

 Finger food of the night. I didn't had much food. I guess I'm too concentrate on the games instead of filling up my stomach. End up, I back home and had supper.

The Skull Candy sponsored by the Red Ballon. Question:  How can I break it into the pieces?

Number 69! Candice DeVille of Super Kawaii Mama was the MC for the event and she is fabulous. The bingo game isn't what we normally experience. In fact, we tends to have bingo number - calling nicknames. Number Eleven.... chicken legs.

My heart was bumping fast and silently hoping that I could have the chance to shout out "bingo" !

Isn't the view is amazing? I couldn't take my eyes off and keep taking photos on the top floor of The Cullen Hotel.

For this special event, Nuffnang has teamed up with Uber. The app that connects you to your nearest luxury chauffer-driven car. Uber is offering Nuffnang Blogger Bingo attendees a discounted ride up to $40. Seriously, I saved loads of traveling time when it's the time going back home with Uber. 

The last three rounds of the bingo, I did won something! This is just gotta be my first time got lucky to win prizes! This is thr perfect prize to celebrate DC's upcoming birthday. I have been scratching my head and wondering what to do for his birthday celebration. This has came on the right time !

Thank you Nuffnang and Arts Series Hotel team members who organized Blogger Bingo Event !! Nothing I can ask for more by spending my night - fun bingo, amazing scenery and free ride back home with goodies bag and prizes. It was just a wonderful night to me.

Melbourne Zombie Shuffle 2013 Pt 2.

The final part of Melbourne Zombie Shuffle photos!

I don't think I could talk much about this event. All I thought was those people dressed up as zombies are mad awesome ! I imagined that they spent a lot of effort and time in dressing up. Let's just skip to the photos instead of me trying to mumble as much words as I can. (which I failed)

While taking photo of the zombies, this particular zombie with half destroyed helmet was chasing towards me and I tried to run away if possible. I'd probably scream out loud if I wasn't aware of him. Seriously, he is one of the best zombies that impressed me. He just looks so freaking scary!

Brains, anyone?
