Oweek

Once again I apologize for not updating Peekashu.com. It has been super hectic since I came to Melbourne, in a really good way that is, not the stressed out kind of hectic.

Last week was Orientation week and I had so much fun, totally cannot understand why people told me to skip Oweek. Maybe to some people Oweek is really boring but its not if you participate in the events and collect all the freebies ! First of all, I want to show you my room.

The whole week started out with a steamboat session at Joanne's.

Orientation day 1

First day of Oweek !
Many people have asked, WHY SUE ??? Well simply because Shuwen is harder to pronounce and remember. Last year everyone just called me Peekashu cos it was easy to remember. and cute. I think.

Helped out at PlanetUuni booth too ! It was really challenging trying to go up to people and talk them into joining a club but I really love PlanetUni, so much fun that day !

Around lunch time I went for MUOSS' Food Adventure !
Technically Food Adventure is for first year students who are new to Melbourne and would like to be introduced to the food here.

Hong Kong exchange students in my group !!!
Meeting new people is the 2nd best thing about this adventure, the best thing is EVERYTHING IS FREE. Really, whoever made up the Chinese idiom that there is no free lunch on earth probably never joined MUOSS.

First stop : Froyo and cupcake at Tutto !

2nd stop : Grill'd

Lastly pasta and pizza. I'm sorry that these are not actually pics of food haha. See pics of people better what.

After a whole day of walking, everyone was drop dead tired but the next day there was MUOSS' Amazing Race ! Really don't think I've ran so much in my entire life. Even got a mini asthma attack on the way.

Only pictures of my tired team cos running that time cannot take pic lol.

IMG_9227 copy
Except for like this one, cos it was part of the race.

IMG_9226 copy
Our team buddy (guy in blue) really damn nice to us !!!
Don't know why I so fated to hang out with boys but me and Joanne were the only girls in our group. We ALMOST got 3rd place but boohoo we didn't. At least we got free pizza and drinks at the end.

Moonlight Cinema / Hanaichi picnic with the girls that following night.

IMG_3521 copy
We watched Les Miserables and even though I never pronounce the name corectly and it was FREEZING that night, I still love that movie. Amazing time spent with the girls.

IMG_3524 copy
Really recommend couples to come here, located in Botanical Gardens, Moonlight Cinema is only available in Summer (till 31st March if not mistaken) so hurry up and bring your gf there !

IMG_9235 copy
Dragged myself up to get to the beach the next morning to surprise Joanne as her birthday was around that time.

Started this week with dinner with a family friend.
IMG_9260 copy
Thought I was going to a casual dinner, mana tau she brought me to a foochow association CNY dinner. Nevertheless, amazing food and wine. I don't usually drink but the wine they served was seriously too good.

----------------------------

O week was super eventful and super super tiring. From Food Adventure to Amazing Race to the beach, my face was so sunburnt it hurt to smile but I met so many new people and bonded with so many friends, totally worth it !!!!

Now that class has officially start,  I've got to stop going out so much.

IMG_9371 copy
Coffee during break between classes. I honestly love University. It's so different from high school or Trinity but it feels so good to know I'm in Uni. All the lectures and tutorials had been good too. I don't know if this is a temporary feeling or if I'll start hating it when assignments roll in but now it feels too good !!

IMG_9144 copy
I LOVE my timetable. I'm a morning person so 8am classes are fine to me. I don't mind having no day offs either because I really hate waking up, knowing I have nothing to do the whole day. I also found a job to fill up all the free time I Have this sem !!

IMG_9358 copy
My first Calculus 2 lecture which was filled with boys. Not that thats a bad thing *grins*

Okai, thats all for my first two weeks in University. I have so much to blog about so I will find the time to blog soon. BYEEEE ! :)
