  • Geek Time: GTX 970

    Took advantage of the eBay 20% off tech stuff promo (selected retailers only) earlier and grabbed a new graphics card from the Kogan store. I ordered at a time when the Qantas Points Online Mall was running their double points promotion as well. *explodes from bargain* It’s here! It’s here it’s here it’s here it’s […]

  • Schumann 1 & 2 at the Sydney Opera House

    Valentine’s Day! Sydney Symphony Orchestra! Sydney Opera House! Schumann! Mendelssohn! Dumplings!

  • The oo.com.au Order Experience (2014)

    I needed a laptop for my upcoming overseas trip at the end of this month but my funds were very tight, so I was thrilled when I saw the huge list of manufacturer refurbished laptops on sale at oo.com.au at the end of the financial year. After a lot of research, I found the laptop […]

  • A Glimpse of My Childhood

    Mum decided to clean up my room back in Hong Kong that I no longer use since moving to Sydney. She asked what to do with these (photos all hers; unedited): Wow. Memories!
