Posted by STARFiSH in Videos.

It’s been quite cold these couple of days, 10 degree. I thought I’d like winter but I don’t. Some people would say it’s not that cold at 10 degree but I find it bloody cold. Anyway if you’re not convinced, check out the video below. And by the way i changed my mind about hating fortune tellers, hehehe, for now.

Soju in green bottle and Sake in the white pot at a Korean Restaurant

You know what happen when we mix Japan and Korea? I got myself wasted. This evening we got an early celebration formy birthday, which comes tomorrow, and Ah Ing birthday, which comes in 3 more days. My brother, Srey Leak, Srey Ing, Leng and me, we went to a Korean restaurant, a buffet one, in Hurstville. The food was nice and I was very full, to help burn the food more quickly so that we could eat more, we ordered this Sake, Japanese wine, and Soju, Korean wine. I thought I was strong enough to share 2 bottles of Soju and 3 pots of Sake with my brother and Leng, but I was wrong, my drinking skill sucks big time. Just haven’t practice it for only 4 months, I was easy wasted. Despite this small incidents I did I have a very good time, thank you Bro, Leng, Leak and Ing for this great evening, and Srey Ing, Happy Birthday to you!!!

PS: Sorry, the picture is a bit too over exposer, that’s something you expected from a drunk photographer 😀

Butcher Skewer at Meat & Wine Co

If you ever wonder how Butcher and Skewer from my previous post looks like, that is it! in the picture. It comes with this funny support, it did quite embarrass me given its strange looks and in a formal dinner with professors and seniors. Jon, my lecturer in the first part of studio, kept on looking at this Butcher Skewer from times to times, lucky enough I did have 2 glasses of red wine earlier, so I didn’t feel too embarrassed, I did finished it all though, and Jon said, “Well done! you finished it!” ^_^ And also in the picture behind this beautiful decorative steak are Esa and Daniel.

Meat & Wine

Meat & Wine Co restaurant at Darling Harbour, Sydney

This evening I was invited to a celebratory dinner of my senior, the MUDD 13 group, who just finished their last semester and will be graduated in September. It was my pleasure of course, since I dont know much people there except, Esa, Lisa and Daniel, they are very friendly, and thank Daniel for inviting me, I’ll sure let you know when I go to China :D. Oh I had Butcher Skewer and Red Wine, quite nice though a bit expensive. This eve I got to know Shang, also a Chinese student from group, Natalie who’s doing Master of Architecture and joined the MUDD studio, she was quite a nice lady, hopefully I would be able to be in her class in the future, and I also got to talk to Nicole, an exchange student from the States, she was also quite a nice lady even we didn’t talk much. So all in all, it was quite a nice experience.

From my studio room’s window, Red Center, FBE, UNSW

Well I know I’ve been quiet lately, It was partly due to I was busy with my school works and stuff, there were so many bloggers complained how stressful it was dealing with the assignments and all (I’m not talking about you, Lyna, Kaly and Phossdey : P) so I rather just stay cool about it.

Anyway, it was 2 days before our last studio project due. We were trying to catch up the deadline, there were 5 of us in the studio. The atmosphere was calm, quiet and tense, we were focusing on our works. But it wasn’t always this calm, as we would exchanged some conversations, a little chit chat, just to ease the stress and spice up the room. After a small talk were exchanged and just about time when I was starting to continue staring at my laptop screen, as I’ve been doing earlier, Ling shout out to me, hmmm I meant to us:

“Guys! look behind your back!”

I didn’t quite catch what she said since she spoke a little too soft, if Jon were there he would have told Ling to speak up. Then Laurence told us to look behind us, I turned and look and then I wowed, I couldn’t say anything instead of a big wow. It looked stunning, I never see such a beautiful red sky at sunset, it was decorated with the painted gradian cloud giving us a 3 dimensions kinda feeling. The picture above looks less convincing, my cameraphone could not really capture as good as our bare eyes. I thought it was an alien invasion or something or the world was burn out at the other side. I would always imagine tomorrow the world is exploded or burned out or got hit by other planet or something, I must have watched too much movies, and then I would ask myself what would I do if I know the world is ending tomorrow?

Anyway, we have finished that studio project and I was happy that we managed to finished it on time, it was such a relieve. And Tony, thanks man for your efforts and it’s been nice working with you. And good job everyone! Oh Gautham, you said to help me with the urban history paper!

Time does fly, I think I’ve said that before, it’s been almost 4 months now since I got here. Great experience though, I feel like I’m 10 years younger. Getting to know new things here as compare to the life I got back in Srok Khmer, I feel stupid most of the time. I think the younger feeling got from me doing stupid things, got lost getting back home from the station, caught a wrong train, caught a wrong bus and so on. Actually this was not I imagined myself at this age, I should be more mature.

Got a sad news though, Atoh, one of our 4 dog just passed away. He was one of the smart and bravest of all. He would protect us from strangers, he would even fight snakes, he successfully fought 2 snakes, with the help of 3 others of course, and he almost got one of his eyes blinded, the cobra split her venom on his face at that time. Although he was a bit កាច and there were time that he even threatened me especially when trying to bath him, he was still one of the most favorite. May he rest in peace.

Well that could be call a wrap up after not updating for almost a whole month.

Oh wait, I’ve missed a whole lot of European Cup, I could only watched a few matches at the beginning. France, was one of my favorite team after England, now failed to make it into the last eight beaten 2-0 by Italy. I haven’t really decide to support any other team yet but for the moment, I would love to see either Portugal, Holland or Spain reach final.

And in the other news, I think I’ve shrinken my alcohol consuming capability to just 2 glasses now, I said my last record was 3.5 cans but the last time I had with with guys from MUDD class, I could only manage the second round, I wish I could go for another one, sorry guys, maybe next time heheh.

And Violet Hill by Cold Play is the number 1 hit on the Nokia N95 chart, been playing it repeatedly these couple of weeks.

“Was a long and dark December
From the rooftops i remember
There was snow
White snow”

“If you love me
Won’t you let me know?”

“So if you love me
Why’d you let me go?”

Oh and by the way, I hate fortune tellers.
