Snapshots time!

Some of these photos are from months ago that I only just found today *_* I don’t know what on earth is going on with my computer’s filing system everything is out of order and I seem to have randomly lost a bunch of photos. Need to be more organised!!

Quite some time ago James and I were working on a video project which needed a voice over so our clients organised a recording studio. The lovely Jen and I are going over the scripts below.

Our sound technician for the day was just awesome, so knowledgeable and being in the industry since the 70’s and working with some absolutely massive names, he had some epic stories!

The whole place was decked out with 70’s style stone walls so it was kind of like stepping into a time machine. James and I were more interested in the tech equipment though, it reminded me of when I worked in theatre a long time ago 😀 So many buttons!

We were lucky enough to visit Doll at the Mount before it closed too, it’s basically a tea house which is filled with dolls, knick knacks and toys run by the loveliest ladies.

And zomg so many sandwiches and cakes, all of the little details were beautiful! Cupcakes covered with edible glitter, little flowers from the garden as decoration. So many varieties of scones too.

Random hair clip that I snapped a picture of so I would remember to try it at home… the picture didn’t work: I completely forgot about it until now -_-‘

I got to catch up very quickly again with Jessicat before she headed back to Malaysia and we ate at the Pancake Parlour. It was so god to see her again but these are some of the photos that have disappeared >_< If I find them again I’ll post them! On the not of Pancake Parlour, it was nowhere near as good as the Brisbane one. The prices were higher, portions much smaller and the quality of the food was much lower. That said service was better and we didn’t wait long which is a change compared to Brisbane! I really do miss 24hr pancakes in a gigantic old refurbished church though!

We went to a restaurant which is one of the first places in Melbourne to have touch screen ordering, Novelty for the win!

Looking at this photo reminds me that it’s been ages since I curled my hair, I’ve been very lazy! Actually I’m thinking of getting a curling iron for some variety, as I usually just do pin curls or use my straightener. Do you girls have any recommendations for one? I thought about getting the mini curler which is from the same line as my straightener because it’s been so good but I’m worried that with a mini one it will take forever to do my whole head!

Some of the delicious food at that place:

And James being his usual classy self…

Speaking of James’ classy self, we went on a double date with Celina and her partner Toby to a buffet place a while ago. James was sad to see that they had burger ingredients but no burgers so he made his own with a dinner roll -_-‘

I also tried oysters for the first time in like 8 years and this was the resulting face:

He took several photos of my reaction that he’s threatening to make into an animated gif if I didn’t show you a picture of the best steak he ever had… It’s from the Intercontinental hotel and apparently if it was legal he would leave me and marry it.

Back to less manly things, here is some more random architecture. I totally want to live in this building just so I can sit in the turret and look longingly out the window.

This building over in Docklands had a gigantic anchor flag thing on it’s roof which was pretty cool.

Pretty walkway between buildings, I want my future house to have gigantic iron gates like that 😀

And for today’s humour this is apparently what happens when James doesn’t have enough *actual* work to do, he practises his skills and plays in Photoshop and makes fictional magazine covers -_-‘ I swear if there actually was a magazine such as and they actually asked me to be on a cover *cough yeah right*  this I would brush my hair and put on a reasonable amount of make up on first.

And I will leave you with the fluffiest puppy ever. EVER.
