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.
Actually I don't think you can see anything so I will give you a more detailed tour next time :D
The whole week started out with a steamboat session at Joanne's.
Bonding session over mafia !
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.
There were tons of people in costumes the first day cos there was supposedly a harlem shake session! Really wanted to go but no one would go with me :/ by the time I found Joanne to go with me, it was over.
Free slurpee !
With the 7-11 people who also gave us skype credit !
Super kancheong face cos if you win this you get like an itunes gift card or something.
Another game where you have to draw the person in front of you without lifting your pen off the paper / looking at your paper. My drawing of her quite nice what !!
Music and amazing weather. (Y)
All the freebies I snagged on the first day !! SO MANY DISCOUNT VOUCHERS.
I'M GOING TO ALL ORIENTATION PROGRAMS AGAIN NEXT YEAR.
Happy came over one day and taught me how to cook.
The charsiew really damn good one lor, in fact I made them for my cousin before I sat down and started blogging hahaha I'm so nice.
#3 Orientation day 2
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
Followed by San Churros !
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.
Except for like this one, cos it was part of the race.
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.
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.
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 !
Dragged myself up to get to the beach the next morning to surprise Joanne as her birthday was around that time.
19 years old already ????
Took tons of pics on the beach but they're all not with me.
Ended the day and the week with steamboat again but this time at Brandon's !
The sunburnt bunch after a day at the beach. Such good company !!
Started this week with dinner with a family friend.
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.
Lion dance in Melbourne !
Also sent Alnick off that night. Gonna miss this guy ! T__T
and then Joanne's actual birthday dinner.
Birthday girl Joanne trying to imitate me in pictures.
I totally do not hold my bag like that !
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.
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 !!
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 !!
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 ! :)
