I hate tests, I get so nervous with any sort of tests, and driving is one of them.
I was determined to pass this time round, but again someone high above is having a good laugh at me. Both times to do with speed. The test I took last Saturday, I forgot my indicator when doing a U turn at the round about and I got a x for going too slow. So, that's 2 x and I was out!
So, this time round, I was making sure, indicators were on, and lots of head checks and what do you know? I did a 65km at a 60km zone, coming down a hill. Yep! You got it, instant fail! Damn! I hate this 40 minutes test!! It's ridiculously long and it comes in freaking 2 parts. At least this time round, I was in the middle of the 2nd part. One little median strip after this and I'll be driving back to VicRoad... but noooooooo!
Speed speed speed. At this rate, I'm never ever seeing my driving license and to boot it off, I'm leaving this Sunday, which gives me very little chance of resitting, unless please please someone release a spot between now and Friday?
I have to laugh at myself or I'll be crying buckets.
Meanwhile, I'm going to sit here and sook for the next hour or so. Two fails within a week = shitloads of cash going out and a HUGE kick to my confidence.

I've been told by my sis to quit having my butch haircuts, because I loved having them really short with fiery red highlights. I'm still going to have a short-ish look, but with a longish fringe as I've been having a case of bad forehead day, since my pork marked scar appeared.. sigh!
A bit worried about having a straight cut fringe though, as I've been told I look like a China doll *horrified*
Any recommendation of places. I can't afford my $150/foils per haircut anymore *sobs* I miss my usual hairdresser - helmut but I'm thinking more of an Asian hairdresser, somewhere around the Box Hill area?
Anyone got any recommendation??

I have to say this is one of the better movie for me this year. I laughed till I had tears down my face. It's hilarious, thoroughly brilliant, some of the jokes were so wrong it was just hilarious. I have to admit I teared up a bit as well. It teaches about friendship, forgiveness and best of all, even if you think the world hates you, there's always a tiny silver lining somewhere...
I guess I do relate to Annie (some aspects of her life!), the main character of this movie. Feeling like a failure, everything is not going right for her - career (what career?), relationship (having a f*ckbuddy who is a major asshole who treats you like shit, but she keeps going back to him - not that I'm saying my relationship is anything like this, ok.. =P), sabotaging anything she puts her hands into (relationship wise - work, friends, the nice dorky new potential man), broke and having a housemate from hell, no wonder she's suffering from low confidence!
But she's so darn funny! Everything she does or say at the most inappropriate time (having a meltdown at her best friend's shower! You really wouldn't want to miss that!)
But this points me to the major thing in this movie which really really pinch a nerve - that is the importance of friendship - A true friendship survives the good and bad and you know what if a friend can't meet you half way, screw them. They aren't worth the effort. I think if you do follow my blog, you'll understand what I mean =P Friendships are hard to come by and true friendships are as rare as gold lying in the sand. On top of that, if friends take sides, they aren't worth the effort either.
I know I'm slightly bitter but I've always been laid back and always been easy going, especially with my friends. I mean hey, I even let one get away with telling her other friends the reason she was friends with me and the reason we get on so well is because she's pushy and I'm a pushover. I have to admit the remark stung a bit and that's when the relationship sour slightly from my end, but heck a good lesson in life.
So, let's toss a glass to true friendship - respect, love and understanding..
Until next time,

I dread packing up again. I've been practically living out of my suitcase since I returned to Australia end of last year and it was lovely to settle here since February this year living with my aunt and uncle, and now a little new edition to our cozy family, Mickey the little King Charles Cavalier. <3!
I can't wait to travel back to Brisbane though, to just sit back and relax and spend time with my family before I'm off to Europe - a HUGE big step into the unknown again!... Again jobless! *ARGH*
Nevertheless, Stockholm, here I come again!
Glad it's still summer when I'm there. Melbourne is seriously killing me with her cold breath.. *shivers*

The jack of all trades...
... and master of none...
How do you do?
I've done so many things in my life...
When I was young, I've learned the piano, completed grade 8 before I turned the age of 12,
Learned the violin up to grade 3,
Ask me to play you a tune now,
I'll probably stare back at you with a vacant stare..
Just in reason years,
I've tried my hand in a few Burlesque classes,
Learning the exaggerated walk,
How to take off my stockings,
All around a chair,
Which of course were too high for my short legs,
While the other girls twirl gracefully,
I looked like I was trying to do the high jump..
Played with huge feathered fans,
Even learning how to shake it with those nipple tassels..
Please don't ask me to perform anything, unless you could get me high...
And I'm not talking about the liquid kind..
I've had a passion with shoe making,
I love the colours and creation that I could think of,
Tried my hands in making a pair of shoes,
And a pair of sandals to boot,
But alas, shoe making is quite difficult without the proper tools,
Or the proper knowledge of the feet to get the perfect shoes..
Tried learning to sew,
I guess time will only tell?
Now, I'm looking towards...
... How to make my own hats!!
Blame it on Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding..
In future perhaps,
I could make gorgeous accessories for the head,
Not just hats,
But headbands and clips,
With feathers and flowers,
My name is May,
I'm the Jack of all trades,
But master of nothing..
Nice to meet you..

Since coming back to Australia, I've been kept busy. Work, spending time with my aunt/uncle and my other half's parents. Sometimes I wonder why I'm always so tired when I've hardly done anything. Monday to Friday, off to work and be back at home by 6pm, have dinner, tv and bed. Sometimes the occasional early dinner after work, catching up with friends or sometimes on the weekend. Most weekends are usually reserved for my aunt and uncle, I'm always making sure I spend at least a day on the weekends with them. I've also started to get addicted to pokies. *shame* My aunt sure loves pokies and now it's rubbing off on me. But I've also joined a Sewing social group once a month! Yep! I'm learning how to use the sewing machine, slowly!
Know something? If you haven't noticed, my topics are all over the place. My mind is always jumping about, sometimes I get so confused. Topics just swerve around in my head, sometimes I confuse myself as well. I'm not sue if it's old age or what.
Anyway, back to my camera. I've missed taking pictures and sometimes, when looking at other people's pictures I sometimes get the 'kiasu' feeling - I can definitely take better pictures than that!
Anyway, less than 3 months, and I'll be off on the road again. I'm going back to Stockholm in July. I'm actually quite excited about it, but a bit worried - How I'm going to get a flow of money coming in and to still be independent and not having too much time on my hands or being bored and lonely or homesick. All these keep swirling around in my head and I have to admit I get stressed just thinking about it.
On a cheerful note, having my camera around my neck and my hand again is getting me quite excited. Will be off travelling for a bit in Europe once I get there in July. Road trip with you know who and his parents.
Now I just need to upload all the pictures I took while I was in Asia. I've been so slack! I'll do it once I get back to Stockholm. ;)
- Current Mood: sleepy
... Are such selfish creatures... When they themselves can't move on, they refuse to let you move on either..
I guess I should know better though..
Let's see what happened.. It all started when I was doing my 5 weeks stint in Asia just last October.. Remember my passion for getting handmade shoes and I decided to check it out in Seoul!??
Baaaad mistake! I ended up contacting a certain friend's ex.... I mean hey, he was the only one there and I can't speak a word of Korean and I has a couple of factories visits lined up. I had a tour guide, but he was only there for certain days and for certain things and I wasn't going to pay more after the tour agency has already ripped me off with the 'private tour' price.,
But in the end I ended up going to a couple of factories with one guy. The other factory rep (for another site) couldn't make it and the friend's ex didn't end up going as he had to work and he couldn't take time off.. But we ended catching up for the few evenings I was there.
It was good as I'm usually back at the hotel by 5pm daily. Imagine having to wander around by myself and most ppl can't even speak a word of English., ;( so it was nice having someone there..
Unfortunately, he's not over her.. Not at all.. Our conversation revolves around her, how he's missed her blah blah blah.. I tried not to say much, just sitting on the fence and letting him dwell continuously on and about her.. Walking on the street triggered his mrmory of him taking her there when she was there.. ;p but I did keep telling him to please let her be and let her move on.. He said he understood and he himself needs to move on but is unable..
I thought that was the end of it. He was a nice guy to be frank and I think most people liked him and when they broke up she insisted he dropped all her friends from his Facebook page.. But I've talked to him before and met him a few times when he was here in Aus.. I guess the biggest issue with them is.. Location.., She's here, he's from another side of the world.., still a wanderer, and he kept moving from country to country and refused to settle here in Aus or at least give it a go.. None of them wanted to meet up half way. Really tragic Korean drama.
To be honest when I decided to renew our contact, I had 2 minds about it and consulted a few people over it but I guess the end result was my own fault.
But seriously, they have broken up for nearly a year.. Both are still majorly hung up over the other. According to her, he refused to settle down, according to him he needs to breathe because she's quite demanding.
My mistake was I should have told him she's moved on and seriously let her be. All I said was to please let her move on. I did get a pathetic email from him a few months after I came back, about how he's been thinking non stop about her and it's driving him nuts., but I just ignored it and deleted it..
Then recently she received a parcel from him.. Out of the blue.. With no notes in it.. I really should have contacted him then but seriously it's none of my business and I really don't want to get myself involved in others drama.. ;( then the prick rang her up (while I was away in Bris) drunk and he had to mention me! Of course she went ballistic and said I was a backstabbing bitch. It's like I was having a sordid affair with him and all I did was met up with him for a few times while I was there- as a freaking friend
And the end result.. She 'unfriended' me on Facebook. Childish? I think so. After all she's just unfriended a couple of her friends just this year because one went out with her fling, and the other asked her fling out. (same guy whom she couldn't make up her mind if she wants to continue her fling with)
The mind seriously boggles at times.
But I'm so freaking mad at her ex. Total serious prick! He can't move on, so he wouldn't let her move on.
So what do you think?? Do I deserve what I got?? I'm annoyed with her maturity but I understand how she feels ( bad me.. ;( ) but I'm seriously utterly pissed off at him!
Sign.. This feels like HIgh School drama all over again. Makes my own drama with my own man takes a back seat..
