Big Bang MADE in Melbourne 2015

      Hi! For those of you who know me, you would know that I am a huge fan of Big Bang!


So naturally, when they announced they were bringing their MADE tour to Australia, I flipped out and splurged on a $500 VIP ticket lol! I managed to buy two tickets (the other for Wen) during the VIP Nation Presale and omg, I was actually at work but for that 15-20 minutes before the tickets came out, I was just sitting at my desk madly clicking refresh and hoping that there would be no emergency for me to attend to lol! I was incredibly lucky that an appointment arrived ‘early’ so that after telling them to wait on the couch, I could go back to clicking for the remaining 5 minutes ahhaa. I remember the website crashing like crazy and nothing was loading. Wen and I were on the phone half-crying because things just weren’t loading lol. But I was determined… so I kept clicking and I finally checked out with two VIP tickets haha.


Frustratingly, the VIP package we got stated that numbered wristbands would be given on first come first serve basis, meaning that we had to get up super early to line up for Check In which was at 2pm. Now, Wen and I aren’t youngins anymore that can go without sleep lol …so we whinged quite a lot about this hahah.

Of course Melbourne sucks and it just had to be pouring on the day Big Bang was visiting :(
While we did pack umbrellas, we failed to pack ponchos and thus our clothes were soaking for the majority of the day ugh. Pretty sure the rain didn’t clear up until just before 2PM, so you can imagine how miserable, cold and sleepy we were feeling lol. On that note, the following picture shows exactly what I did pack!


I brought two portable phone chargers …unfortunately the powerbank wasn’t working so I only had one in the end lol

So Check In opened a little earlier at 1 or 1:30pm (I forget now) so that was all very exciting! We were in the 60s’ group, which was overall pretty good in my opinion. We received our VIP laminates and our “Specially designed Big Bang gift bag (exclusive to VIPs!)” ….which turned out to be this small packet that folds out in to a huge damn bag (see image below) that by the way was available for purchase at the merch stand lol. Exclusive my butt haha.


Ugh, well either way, the bag did come in handy as we chucked all our stuff in there then cloaked it lol.

Anyway, the cloak room was right next to the merch stand and while I told myself I wouldn’t spend any more money …I did. I caved and bought both the reversible jacket ($180) and t shirt lol ($45). The jacket was perfect though because it was really cold that day and the jacket I brought was soaking wet from the rain.


This is Wen and I wearing our matchy $180 Big Bang jackets! They’re B/W reversible ;) 

Anyway, we waited a heap more time. It was just a series of lining up and waiting, over and over again. BUT YES, finally we were let in to the venue where soundcheck began!! Wen and I managed to get second row from the front, which wasn’t too bad (except I’m short and I wish I was against the barrier) It didn’t last very long but it was amazing all the same. Since the concert was starting in ~1 hour, none of us left lol ..which made for a real terrible & squishy situation lol.


I won’t post them all here because uh, I took about 350 photos & videos on that day alone and this blog post would be way too long if I did. So I’ll just embed my favourite, but you can check out more by going to the playlist HERE


Anyway, the concert finally started and of course, it started off with Bang Bang Bang! No complaining hehe.
Okay so, my videos will be mega shaky and sometimes, out of focus. There are several reasons for this… 1) I am jumping/dancing 2) People around me are knocking in to me 3) My hands are starting to hurt like f 4) The camera man was pointing in my direction and I didn’t want to seem like a loser taking videos LOL …

And here’s a short clip of Bad Boy cos it’s one of my favs and GD ♥
I apologise that some of the videos are in portrait lol. It’s way easier holding an iPhone portrait-wise rather than landscape hahah. I obviously wasn’t thinking how stupid it would look on a computer lol!

I only recorded a couple of full songs, mainly because some of their performances left the main stage and were on side/back stages. So, the few full songs I do have are when they did their whole performance on the main stage! ♥ ♥ ♥

Man, so throughout the entire concert I had this really annoying person in front of me. She asked me numerous times to “give her space” but um EXCUSE ME, WHY DON’T YOU LOOK BEHIND YOU. I don’t have any fkn space behind me either. I don’t know if you realise but you’re at a Big Bang concert with a billion other people who are all v. excited to see them lol. Zzz anyway, if you see a head or a light stick in any of my videos, it’ll be her lol. She wasn’t the nicest person alive but whatever, I still enjoyed the concert heaps regardless of her whinging 8)

It was super sad when the concert ended and Big Bang were saying goodbye ;A;

After the amazin’ concert, I caught up with Jen from QuestJen who visited Melb to see BB too!! ♥


Please ignore how gross I look next to Jen, the beauty haha. We wanted to have post-con dins at Menya but since it was super busy, we ate at Stalactites instead …where some random BB fan stopped me to ask about my light stick cos he missed out lol. Dude, I just spent $500 on a VIP ticket + more on all this merch, I ain’t giving you my light stick -_-“


Here’s all the merch I got in the end! You can see that huge bag I was talking about before folds in to that cute pouch on the top left. A fansite also gave out some banners to wave during the concert and I managed to get Daesung’s one (really wanted GD’s banner since he’s my bias but oh well).

Overall, Big Bang was an amazing experience and I don’t regret splurging $500 at all.

Wishlist 2015

 Hello! Omg, I cannot believe how fast time flies …cannot believe I’m already making another one of these!
It seems that the older I get, the harder it is to make one of these ahhh. Reasons being that I’m at that stage of life where the things I want involve me saving a lot of money haha (Man I’m getting olddddd).  Regardless of that, I still manage to be quite materialistic (hehe) and have collected a couple of items that I would love to have in my life :)


Olympus EM-M6028 60mm f2.8 MACRO Lens, Pink and Gold Prada Wallet, Ted Baker Crystal Daisy Pendant, Ted Baker Ice Cream Studs, G-Dragon One of a Kind Beanie, Kikki-k Watermelon Set, Urban Decay Naked Smokey Eyeshadow Palette, Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette, Olympus OMD EM10 Camera Case, Awesome Picnic Basket, Napolean Blush Patrol, Swarvoski Music Note Pendant, YSL Rouge Volupte 02 Pourpre Intouchable, Mermaid shell necklace

And there we have it! Some pretty cool things that I would love to receive ♥
But in saying that, my family and friends are pretty good at surprising me with wonderful gifts, so please do not think that the above list is definite! If you are worried I might not like something, please don’t stress because I really am not that picky. After all, I appreciate simply the effort and thought of someone wanting to get me a gift :)

Birthday Presents 2014

           Hello strangers! As per usual, this is an incredibly late 2014 birthday gift post woops…
But as always, my friends & family are pretty amazing people who give me some pretty awesome stuff …so this post is a display of my appreciation of all their love and effort. I am very grateful to have all of you in my life ♥

Similar to last year, I’m going to try make things a little more interesting by adding in an assumption of what their gift means about me, as well as some random chibi drawings of me to match! Hover over each image for what I really think!


Cindy and Nico got me a Slider Mini Burger recipe book and two Harry Potter potions (Phoenix Tears & Invisibility), which must mean that they secretly think I’m a scientist WITCH  creating a burger potion !!


Lawrence, Laura, Jack and Aidan got me a Dancing Baby Groot pop vinyl and a Marc Jacobs dice necklace. I’m not too sure what this means about me, other than I’m possibly part tree and like to gamble a lot!?


Xin, Wen and Oj got me a day trip to Werribee Mansion where I was fully pampered with a Turkish Hammam, relaxation massage and facial! They must think that I’m always stressed and need to relax a lot more!


Charleen got me a Kutusita Nyanko notebook, two OPI nail polishes and Shiroi Koibito!! She must think I’m a crazy cat lady, who noms all day and likes to doodle nail polishes in a notebook!


Amelia and Alex got me a gorgeous locket and two nail polishes …which must mean they think I’m so in love with nail polishes that I wanna put a photo of them in a locket to wear around my neck lolol!


Jennifer (QuestJen) sent over a crown necklace, OPI nail polishes and a Nivea Lip Butter. Only assumption I can make is that I’m somehow Queen of the (Kermit) Frogs …and I have dry lips hahahahah


My mum got me the above bunch of awesome stuff. I reckon she sees me as a spoilt princess ;D


My brother got me a black lace top, clutch bag and some lollies. My only assumption is that he thinks I carry around a bunch of lollies in my evening bags when (if) I ever go out partying at night!


Zuz got me this cute set of stuff, which translates to her thinking I am constantly tired and pig out when I’m working lol!


Shalini got me this cute turquoise bag, which I reckon means I need to use more colours in my accessories!


My work friends bought some OPI nail polishes, a huge Kate Hill bag, a smaller Kate Hill bag, and a card holder ..also from Kate Hill! My only assumption is that I need some damn bags in my life ..some big enough to carry everything! (More like a big enough bag to carry all the nail polishes I now have hahaha! Srsly I have so many ….)


My bosses got me a WISH gift card and a sparkly Mimco pouch, which means they must think all I do is shop so the only bag I need fits my phone, keys and card lol! 8) Shopaholic Melody~


Angela got me a MAC lip set in nude, which probably means she thinks I use too many bold lipsticks!!

Of course, I have to save Ashley’s for last since he put in so much effort to presenting his gift for me lol!
My birthday last year was on the Friday and the plan was for him to pick me up from my house after finishing work to take me to dinner somewhere special (read: this post). But for the entire day he continued to say how a part of the present hadn’t arrived in the mail yet and therefore he would delay the whole gift. When he got to my house, he again reiterated that he didn’t have the gift, but instead had the card ready. Now I won’t go in to too much detail, but he played a cute pre-recorded message as I read the card which lead to me finding the gifts hidden in the backseat hahaha. Sneaky *shakes fist


Ashley got me a My Melody Swarvoski, PS Vita, GoT cook book and GoT charm bracelet! My only assumption is that he thinks I’m aiming for the Iron Throne Ice Cream Cone (because sitting on a bunch of swords hurt!!!) so I can sit there all there ruling as Queen Melody, playing my PS Vita.

Maaaaan… so it seems that 2014 was the year of the bags and nail polish!
Actually, hilariously, when I spoke to a couple of my friends, they all said they were just referring to my Wishlist 2014 blog post when trying to pick my presents lol! Who would’ve expected so many people to follow it to the t.

I promise I will post this year’s gifts by the END OF 2015!!!
