My Sunday on a Design Market

I went to design market on sunday with my husband. It was my first time going to one, and I love it, I saw so many unique and inspiring pieces. Everything is handmade!! :D too bad I cant take too many pics as there were many people and I didnt want the stall holder thinking I was stealing their designs or something like that coz I did snap a pic and the stall owner was suddenly so keen on watching my every move -_-"
I was only armed with my mobile phone so pardon the quality.












The design market is held twice a year, at the federation square (the first floor) underground carpark. I knew this from a friend. My friend told me it always get around by words of mouth.
And also, they have weekly book market at the upper level! :) I visited the book market and snatched myself two books from jane austeen. I have to stock up for my bangkok stay! lolz
















After that we went to have some churros at san churros, QV. no pics of the churos sorry, but here is what we have for drinks. hot & cold chocolate, basically it's a hot chocolate topped with ice cream :P the ice cream soon vanished of course (due to the heat and my mouth hahaha). It was quite yummy plus... it's cold outside


then after that yummy sweets we went to church for sunday service :) the topic was about alcohol addiction and how to overcome the addiction. It was very interesting eventhough I dont have problem in that area, but it's good to remember that sometimes we do need help to quit something, and nothing to be ashamed about it. Me and my sister do check on each other on our spending habit hahaha. you know, a girl could become quite addicted to shopping and it sometime is quite harmful (to our wallet especially and sometimes it gives a reason for an argument with my hubby), beside... it's not always right to buy on impulse. so yeah, that's what I need to control of myself *grin* it's getting much better now ^_^

On the other hand, I will be leaving Melbourne in a couple of days, so I think this would be my last post until I reach Jakarta. I think I would be able to post in Jakarta, got a contest or two that I need to blog on, but not so sure what's gonna happen once I get to Bangkok. Last time I was there, I had to frequent an Internet cafe because I couldnt get a connection in my apartment building. So girls, if Im becoming abit slow in visiting around your blogs please excuse me, but I will do my best!!

Until then, pls take care of yourself!!

Have fun on your trip^^

Ture everyone has the 88CS palettes and I've been hearing so mant raves about it that I had to get it. Plus I do at least 1 or 2 fashion shows a month and make runs out fast with me. Speaking of which, I have a fashion show next week Friday so its a great time to try out the CS palettes.

Thanks for following.
