Melbourne Travel Blog 2017 | Uni Ball

Sorry for the spam of photos, I really thought that I didn’t take enough of my trip to Melbourne last week…turns out I under-estimated how many I considered was of a substantial amount. If you don’t know already if you’re not following my Insta account  (I upload every day and share everything about my lifestyle), I visited Melbourne last Thursday-Monday to see my boyfriend who studies at university there. We have this tradition where every year we attend his med-ball and for the past 2 years, we always celebrated it in Sydney during the semester and since this year he’s studying medicine in Melbourne, we knew that we had to preserve our celebratory tradition. On the first day, we headed to Melbourne CBD and wandered around looking for a cute place to have dinner. One thing I wish Sydney had was the free tram line that circled around the CBD of Melbourne because it saved us so much time. When it comes to food, we always have spend so much time deciding what to eat …

Top 5 Clubs In Sydney

Born and bred in Sydney, Australia I have had my fair share of visiting many night clubs and bars within the Sydney vicinity. And although Sydney’s night life has taken a big hit with the introduction of the lock out laws that were recently put at bay, it still hasn’t stopped us young party-goers from enjoying a night out in the city. Here are my top 5 picks of where to go on a night out full of fun, laughter and alcohol. Marquee Nightclub When: Saturdays If you live in Sydney, a visit to Marquee Nightclub is a must, and almost a tradition to go at least ONCE as soon as you’re of age. Located in The Star Casino, this is the place to be and hosts all the international superstars that come out to play during the after hours. Although you do have pay for tickets, and drinks can be pricey I recommend paying early bird entry (in before 11pm) and pre drinking someplace cheaper so that you don’t wake up the next morning …

Winter’s Night Out In Syd |OOTN

The best part about a night out with friends is the preparation bit, getting excited about what to wear, visualising exactly how you want your hair and makeup would look (not that it ever looks the same as how you envision it) and of course, those pre-going out selfies. If you want to go the extra mile and be super fancy, head to Hotel Palisade at Millers Point in Sydney, a gorgeous European styled building tucked away on a quiet street overlooking the whole of Sydney including views of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. They serve delicious cocktails and gourmet finger foods such as lamb cutlets, grilled prawns and truffle fries. For a glammed up night club, you cannot go wrong at Marquee located in The Star Casino. If you buy the early bird tickets (before 11pm) you can grab a great deal of paying only $21. Outfit details:  Dress: Kookai Heels: Tony Bianco You can purchase my look directly here 🙂 xx

A Day At The Art Gallery

One of my favourite things to do during the Winter time is visit the art gallery and I do so every year when the weather gets cold. It’s such a place of relaxation as you wander aimlessly amongst the artworks and passerby’s in silence. I’m not exactly an art-sy person but I’m really into Renaissance paintings and works from the early European period. Here are a few snapshots of my favourite artworks from the Art Gallery of NSW.   P.s. Check out my ultimate guide to the perfect outfit and make-up look for a day at the Art Gallery!   

Weekend Antics | Melbourne

Ranked as one of the world’s most liveable cities and labelled as the Australian ‘New York’, I had the chance to visit the reputable city of Melbourne for a short weekend trip with my boyfriend, who studies Medicine at the nearby university. I arrived in Melbourne on Friday morning and spent the day on campus with my boyfriend as he introduced me to his roommates followed by a brief tour on and off campus. One thing I noticed was how spaced out and open everything is. If you looked into the distance, there was nothing really that prevented your line of sight and you could see miles and miles ahead of you. The next day we woke up early to catch the express train to Melbourne CBD where we would be staying for the weekend. It was my first time visiting Melbourne’s CBD so we had lots to see and explore as we walked up and down the shopping strips around Bourke street, Little Collins and near the Emporium. The first thing I did notice was that it was …

Vivid Vision 2016

Like any Sydney-sider, a visit to Vivid is essential and taking the regular snapshots of the cathedral hallway of lights is even more imperative. My friends and I headed to Darling Harbour at 6pm, when the event just began where we were greeted with a cascade of water dancing to the jazzy rhythm of the music. There were light beams shooting from the water and trickled down the surrounding buildings of bright greens, pink and reds. After gazing at the light show, we soon became quite peckish so we headed to the usual; Arisun for Korean food which unfortunately I divulged before I even remembered to take a photo of it. The night life was brimming with people wrapped up in beanies and scarves, selfie sticks being whipped out as frequently as tissues and lots and lots of street shows! Our final stop after passing all the stores in Pitt Street was of course, the famed Cathedral of lights next to the Opera House and the Botanical Gardens. There was a huge line that started all the way …

If travelling were free, you’d probably never see me again

I was scrolling down Tumblr the other day and came across a few quotes consecutively in a row about travelling, and whilst reading them, sparked my once devoted yearning for adventuring and exploring new countries and cities bursting with cultures and hidden stories. I’m half Chinese (from my mums side), quarter German and quarter Polish (dads side) and was born in Australia and since I was 3, my fondness with travelling began on aeroplane rides when we would visit my grandparents and family members in Shanghai, China. My love and fascination with the Chinese culture intrigued me as a young child. It was like travelling to another universe because everything was so different, so exotic and so exciting. Starting from the language where my mum’s side of the family would talk in Shanghai-nese to each other; a colloquial exchange of dialogue that only residents in Shanghai would understand, hearing it and understanding the basic concepts wrapped me in warmth of familiarity and homeliness. The Chinese cuisine was also my favourite, from pickled fruits to chicken …
