Yeah, a few more weeks and I'll be flying off to Melbourne, Australia to do my Degree in Illustrations at NMIT. (Which stands for Northern Melbourne Institute of Technology) So in the meantime, I'm just getting some stuff packed, tying up loose ends and celebrating Chinese New Year with my family in my hometown.

To those who send me notes concerning commissions requests, I apologize to inform you that it'll be on hold for awhile until I'm settled in my new campus life. (Ah~the thought of being a student is kinda...weird but exciting for an "old" chap like me)

Anyways, I'm just rambling crap here so, kisses and hugs from me to you all. Cheerio!

  • Listening to: Amy Studt - Seconds Away
  • Reading: Habibi - Craig Thompson
  • Watching: Loads of Youtube stuff
  • Playing: my dragonballs
  • Eating: with Chuck Norris
  • Drinking: like a boss

Yessss...Beware the Aussie glomp. (It includes vegemite) XD

You really should try that (vegemite) if you haven't already; but remember, you have to put butter on the bread first then the vegemite, otherwise it tastes pretty bad.
Gimmie a shout an' tell me what ya think?

its ok, the roo's dont kick your butt unless you provoke them.
I know from experience.
Bad experience.
for the kangeroo.
And i raised it's joey afterward.
coz thats what we do, us australians. Beat roo's to death, then train their young to be ninjai.

sorry, i confuse my imagination for reality sometimes.
What i'm trying to say is:

Breakfast is served 6 til 10, not a minute later.
The weather cycles between "its hot" "wow its hot" "its so hot all the spider have come inside to escape the heat and they're angry" and "this level of heat is tolerable now all my nerve endings have been burned"

oh wait, you said melbourne. you should be alright then.

don't stand under gumtrees for too long. There are no drop bears.
But there are wide variety of sharp, pointy, venomous flora and fauna who's single desire is to cause irrevocable, irreversible pain and torment.

I got stunk by australia's largest caterpillar just today.

In other news, our politicians are all two faced, flaccid, invalids who pray on the weak of mind and wallet, don't know what a promise is and, fair warning, everybody will try and suck as much money out of you as possible.

if you see a sign that says "dangerous currents" don't swim there. Its local code for 'shark' or 'crocodile' sightings.
Always swim between the flags, if you get caught in a rip, swim parallel to the beach, if you can't swim, wave frantically at the life guards.

uuuuhm, what other australiana advice can i bestow upon you...

we say 'heaps' a lot, to the meaning of 'a lot of'

we call 'shrip' prawns, and we rarely barbecue them.

people you meet will make fun of you, but thats just normal australian hazing. its gonna happen whether you or we like it or not, it can't be helped.

please forgive us for bogans driving around in hotted up utes and nissian skylines acting as though they are driving Ferraris, every cultural cup of soup has the gluggy, unwanted dregs.
don't make eye-contact with them, though. It will only insight their rage and bigotism.

City dwelling australians tend to be psychotic drivers. dont take death threats from passing cars to heart. Country drivers are the polar opposite, and they get excited when they see traffic lights.

pedestrians simultaneously always do and do not have right of way.

We eat meat pies. And drink beer. Heaps of it.

If you make fun of any Australian region, make fun of Tasmania, it's the state we love to hate.
But if you wanna play it safe and not face the wrath of Tazzies, New Zealand is always fair game.

lets see, i think thats about all i can muster right now.


If you're in any kind of developed town, there will most likely be no kangaroos. Or Koalas, Wombats, or any other fames unique australian fauna. All the cute ones are either in small number, eaten, or put down by animal rights activists because there's something very wrong with their logic.

so if you wanna see australian wild-life, i dare say you can drive a little bit inland, and you'll be upto your arm pits in all kinds of scaleys, under-evolved mammalians, and bogans.

It seems everything in Australia is trying to kill us one way or another haha
