Happy freakin’ New Year everyone! ♥ Hope 2015 is an awesome year for all of us!
The start of the new year means another year older for Melludee.com woohoo! We’re now FIVE years old and I just want to say thank you to everyone who’s still reading despite my inconsistent posting! Love you all ♥
I realised I forgot to post a ‘2014 in a Nutshell post’ like I usually do, so I’ll combine it in this one.
Looking back at 2014, I can definitely say it was a happy year. Even though I can’t really report on any grand or amazing events happening, I can definitely say it was filled with lots of fun and happy memories. I spent a lot my time eating and adventuring with Ashley, working a lot, hanging out with friends, and generally having a good time!
So, farewell 2014! You were good to me and I’m sad to see you go!

For the last day of 2014, Ashley and I both unfortunately had to work haha
Luckily our shifts both ended early so we could spend our night together. We originally had planned to head to Kelly’s Bar & Kitchen in Olinda but we were running late for our booking and had to cancel it! After some time googling and calling a few different places (many of which were shut!) we chose an American restaurant, Third Wave Cafe!
Ashley was freaking excited about all the American options that he could eat lolol.
In the end we got the 3 Little Pigs burger which was pretty damn delicious (check Ash’s instagram here),beef brisket, beer battered chips and mac & cheese! Pretty sure you can say that I spent my last day of 2014 being a fatty!! lol
After pretty much waddling out of the restaurant, we loaded up on drinks (I tried Moscato for the first time!) and headed to a house party. I would like to mention that I played 7 Wonders for the first time and won!!
I hope that 2015 is going to be an amazing year for all of us and can’t wait to spend it with Ashley!
I don’t have any proper new year resolutions to write, but rather just a few personal goals that I hope to achieve.
How was your NYE?
Hello hello! Life can be such a mystery sometimes…
When I was in high school, I had so many visions of what the future would be like; from my career to my social life. Then life comes along and just tips your whole world upside down. As an adolescent, I repeatedly said that I would never ever teach because my patience wore thin and I thought kids were annoying brats. But now here we are in 2014. I work at Childcare/Kindergarten and watching a toddler read out the Alphabet can brighten up my whole day!
I don’t look good in a lab coat anyway…
Woooo~! Happy New Year! May 2014 be an amazing year for all of us ♥
Apart from that, Melludee is now FOUR YEARS OLD as of the 01.01.2014! I can’t believe I have been writing on here for so long now, and that some of you are still here reading my silly ramblings <3 So thank you all for being so amazing!

My last day of 2013 was pretty damn eventful.
I started off the day by surprising the boyfriend by driving over. After nagging at him to get dressed out of his PJs, we headed off to eat some gyros for lunch (our last meal for 2013). We went back to mine after, where I defeated him consistently in Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition ;) ! I then left him alone for ages whilst I hurriedly got dressed/did my make up WHILST writing the previous blog post ;A; …causing us to miss our train woops. My bad..
Anyway, we arrived at a friend’s apartment in the city where we had some drinks and socialised!
At about 10.30pm, we left to head off to Blue Diamond, a classy bar on the 15th floor! The bar gave off a very ‘The Great Gatsby’ ambience; and whilst the wait for our cocktails (Queen of Hearts and Moulin Rouge) at the bar was ridiculously (but expected) long, I still had fun. We even witnessed a guy try and succeed(!) picking up some girls! When it was about 10 minutes till midnight, we moved to the balcony, where I was unfortunately stuck behind a tall (and smelly) man, for the countdown and the spectacular New Year Fireworks! It was such an amazing experience with Ashley ♥ We stayed at Blue Diamond for another hour dancing to some old school songs, and then nursing my poor feet that were already aching heaps (darn me for not bringing back up shoes / I ended up walking bare foot for quite a bit of the night afterwards).
We realised that we hadn’t actually eaten anything since the gyros at lunch time, so we went in search for food!
For some crazy reason, Ashley had some craving for KFC …so that’s where we headed. Anyway, the thing is I’ve never really roamed the city at night for NYE, so this was the first time I witnessed some scary people! I sat down on a seemingly free table at KFC whilst Ash ordered, only to be confronted by a really angry guy. I ..err ..hurriedly apologised and trotted off to Ashley ;A; Then, whilst we were sitting by the window at KFC (away from angry man!) I watched some drunk guy dance on the street and accidentally hit a few angry passer bys. After filling ourselves with greasy chicken, we walked towards Flinders where I believe all the scary people crowded around :'( We then headed to Crown ..where we wasted our time there with my feet aching and not really wanting to gamble/drink more. But we did have fun watching someone fail to hold on to her shoes, some guys being escorted out of Crown, and two drunk girls dressed in princess outfits calling themselves ‘Sparkle and Twinkle’ hitting on every single guy in sight (no exaggeration).
We ended our night at about 430am with me sleeping on his shoulder in the car ride home.
So ..how was your New Year’s Eve??
