HAPPY BELATED NEW YEARS!!
Sorry for the complete lack of updates within the last month! It's been super hectic end-of-the-year holiday and I'm just going to blog about it in a big clump. So apologies that it may be extremely tedious and boring!

What did everyone get up to for Xmas? And more importantly, what did you get spoilt with?! XD I ended up getting a LOT of chocolate! We spent Christmas at my nephew's place, this is all settling in with Polly's (my sister-in-law) side of the family and let me just say, her side of the family is MASSIVE. If I were estimate how many nieces and nephews alone there would be about 18 of them in total.

Two nights before Xmas, I was nagging my brother and my dad about wanting a hair curling tong for Xmas...but of course I didn't expect anything because I felt it was a big ask, on Xmas day my brother ended up giving me a gift card to Hairhouse Warehouse to actually go and buy a curling tong :') He is the sweetest and my awesomest brother ever!! But sadly, I already purchased it online because I didn't expect him to get me anything :( but in the end I bought hair dye and necessities with the gift card. But I was so touched he would do that for me! Aside from my camera, it was the best present ever!

By the time the clock hit 5pm it was time for me and Bach to head to the airport and pick up Yuka! She actually arrived on Xmas evening. The drive to the airport was totally unforgettable =_=" Extreme stormy conditions that my car was sometimes gliding on the M1 towards the airport! Even on the Tullamarine Freeway we were forced to merge into one lane because trees and debris were cluttered and blocking the roads, but we made it on time of her arrival...but Yuka couldn't get out of the plane until 2 hours later due to the storm causing flight delays.

Shortly after Yuka came to Melbourne we already had to pack our bags and head over to Geelong and prepare to go to Port MacDonnell in South Australia. The drive was a killer. From my area to Geelong is already 2 hours, then from Geelong to Port MacDonnell was another 5-6 hours @_@ But in the end it was all worth it! The weather was amazing in comparison to Melbourne and we thought that fishing and lobster hunting would be a great experience for Yuka. We teased her a lot about being a professional fisher because we joked that Japanese people catch fish by their bare hands haha

The rest of the week consisted of catching up with friends, dinners, BBQs, and souvenir shopping! What turned out worse was the fact that the weather here wasn't being exactly the friendliest! Three consecutive days of 30+ degree days :( but nevertheless we got through everything and it was such a breeze!
