If I Were A Boy… even just for a day.

Ok, first of all, you need to see THIS cool video of a make up guru on Youtube showing you how to turn into a man. Or more specifically, Drake.

I can’t remember how, but I stumbled across this Youtube vid randomly and I wuz all like “Wowwww, that looks incredibly funnnnn. n__n”

You can skip through most of it and just watch the general progression. I was giggling endlessly at the transformation.



The Before and After!!!!
Isn’t that awesome? :D LOL.

And THEN, out of nowhere… I was all……..

:o :o :o… CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

“IMMA BE A MAN FOR A DAY TOO!!! *pokes Sam who’s sitting next time* Baby, I’m going to turn into a man!!!!!!!! Are you excited?

Him: -____-

I don’t think he thought I was serious, but I was dead serious. I don’t know what possessed me. In a coupla minutes, I was gathering all the make up I had, rubbing dark eyeshadow onto my face, trying to look as un-feminine as possible. In about 30 minutes or so, I was quite done with my job. I just had to find some of Sam’s clothes to wear. It was awfully amusing, really. I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror without doubling over cracking up. I think I did a relatively convincing job for a spontaneous effort.

I went on and took a SHIT LOAD of epiccccccc photos that looked like I was on crack, they were so epically epic, I dressed up as a guy and had a fake boner in my pants, me clutching my fake crotch and making gross sexy faces at the camera and there was about 100 photos on there that would make you piss your pants laughing. BUT because all good things ALWAYS come to an end, unfortunately when I tried loading the pics into my computer at night, I found out that my memory card was faulty. T_____T None of my laptops or computers at home could read it (we have 3 computers, 2 laptops and 1 macbook in total).

It was weird because the camera could still display the pictures however according to the computers, the data wasn’t formatted properly. I’d also misplaced the cables to my camera, so I couldn’t hook it up to the computer via the camera and get the info off. So I thought to myself “WTFUCK is this shit. Please don’t die on me now. I’m only a man for a day, and I just washed all my make up off, I’m not putting it all back on again!!!” so the next day I went out to Challenger (a hardware store) and bought myself a new memory card reader in hopes of making it work.

But when I wanted to try and see if it worked today, I realized that THE memory card has gone MISSING. ……………….. I’ve searched high and low, flipped my room inside out, no sign of it. It literally disappeared into thin air because it’s just not here anymore. Don’t ask me how or when or why because I don’t know myself. All I know is, it’s gone. So I bought a new memory card for nothing, and completely lost the pictures FOREVER. Needless to say I was all like FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUU big time because those pictures were priceless!!! I’d rather lose twice the amount of vain, normal camwhore photos and have kept the boy ones instead. Why do I have the worst luck?! :(

Luckily (not really) for me, I still have some lousy iPhone quality photos yet. So… enough rambling, you’re probably wonder “Wtf is this girl on about”, so without further ado, I’ll show you some photos. Pixelated photos that don’t compare to the ones I took on my other camera at all, but photographic evidence that I WAS a man for a day after all. *le sigh*


So ladies and gentlemen, I present to you….
Me. As a man.


…..Everyone, meet…
Jake. (I’ve always liked that name. I told myself when I was a kid that if I had a son next time, he’d be called Jake. And I don’t know why I was a child thinking about having children herself, something obviously went wrong somewhere.)


“WHAT’S UP NEEEEGAAZZ, IT’S J-LO IN DA HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

And that was one embarassing name I used to tell people to call me, when I was a kid. J-Lo, as in Jessica Loh. HAHAHA GEDDIT??? #loserkid #foreveralone


Sam: Are you trying to look like a man, or a hobo?

Me: A hobo man!!!! :D

So what do you think? DO I MAKE A HAMSUM BOI?! :DDDD. I’ve heard the eyebrows are a little too slick, too perfect, but I think that is a forgivable make up flaw. Well how do you suppose I could will myself to grow real bushy eyebrow hair in an hour?!


AHAHAHAHAHAHA.

According to everyone else who has seen me in this state (my family, Nicholas and the people who work at Bedok’s Selegie Tao Hway joint coz I went out at night like this to buy beancurd.) I have a really “qian bian” face. I think it’s quite true lah I also feel like punching my own face lololol.

Sam said, “Why do you keep snarling? That’s not what all guys do.”

Me: “I can’t think of any other way to pose, or another facial expression to give that is relatively manly! Coz all my normal photo-taking facial expressions range along something like

this….”

*blows kisses* AM I KAWAII? ^__________^!!

(I asked Sam this question, and he replied “You look like Nicholas.” I BURST OUT LAUGHING.)

Through this experiment, I have realized that manly photo taking angles = display your side profile to show off your jawline, give slightly slitty fierce eyes, and to grit your teeth. No pouting or SMIZING or risk looking retarded like the above.

Really though, after inspecting these photos again & again, I honestly think I make a not-bad male specimen. I wouldn’t go as far as to say “good”, but…. come on. A lot of guys I know are worse looking than that. HAHAHAH. Ladies, would you date this guy?

*hears a resounding NO!!! …..but ignores it.*

Sure, a little too snarly and dirty looking.. but nothing a shower and a shave can’t fix. -nods-

I think I look more like a boy than the Youtube make up guru, to be frank. A marvelous job if I do say so myself. *beams for all the wrong reasons* I feel like making my own video now, so people can see MY transformation on video.. But I’m not sure if it’s something to be proud of as that may also mean I was just born with exceptionally manly and coarser looking features for a girl.

….My boyfriend refused to kiss me the whole night.

Who wants to guess why? Lol. I guess my make up’s too convincing, because after awhile he was so repulsed, he actually told me sternly to “GO AWAY”. Da fuq.

I don’t blame him though, I was splayed on the bed, full on looking like a homeless man and repeatedly asking for “cuddlesssss!” in a high pitched baby-ish voice. LOL.

This is about the most sexually awkward picture I’ve taken. ♥ I know you still love me deep down inside Sam.. remember how you said LOOKS aren’t everything???

2 things funny about this photo: 1) Me, duh. 2) Sam’s gut.

Well, that’s all I have for my man photos, unfortunately.

I am especially motivated to record my Girl to Boy transformation ever since I’ve lost the HQ photos. Ughh. I’m still so cut up over the loss and malfunction of that memory card. :( Y’all would’ve loved the stupid pictures on it. …Should I do the video then?? I think I might, one of these days… when I feel like being a man again. (I hope I don’t get these strange urges too often) Or when Beyonce’s singing moves me enough.

.
.
.
.
.
.

And with that, I leave you with pictures taken yesterday that reek of outrageous femininity to remind you all that I actually AM a female at the end of the day.

As hard as it may be to believe now, my vagina is still very much intact and alive and flapping. (JK about the flapping part. Or maybe not.)

xoxo,
Jake


(…Thumbs up for you sir, if you saw what I did there.)

Baking tutorial:The BEST brownies ever!!!

Hi. I like brownies. ^___^

Brown, chocolatey goodness that feels like it’s melting in your mouth!!! Don’t we all? If you don’t….. what’s wrong with you?!

But the problem I find with most brownies purchased outside is that:

1) It’s wayyyy too sweet

2) It’s too fudgey. More like a chocolate block than a brownie.. I like slightly cakier types.

3) It’s got nuts in it. I hate nuts in my food.

4) It’s hard / stale / dry / just tastes like shit. (Hence why it usually tastes better with ice cream)

So some time last week, I woke up with a MAJOR craving for brownies. I got out of bed and I was like omfggg want to eat brownies omgg must eat or I’ll die… e_e -googles recipes- …..But the recipes found online were not really to my liking, so I decided to come up with my own.

And IT WAS SO GOOD, I decided it was a bigger sin not sharing it with you guys than if I had the whole 8″ sized brownie chunk all to myself. I took one bite out of it when it was freshly baked and I was like “OMFG BEST brownie I am a freaking genius.” Then Janice (my bro’s gf who lives with us) was like, “Oooh smells good can I have some? :)”…. 5 minutes later: “Omggg I don’t even like brownies in the first place. Last time my ex-bf bought me brownies and I scolded him. But this is VERY GOOD!! :o”

SO!!!!

I’m going to show you guys how to make your boyfriend / girlfriend think you’re a gem in the kitchen even if you’re really an idiot in the kitchen. No previous experience required! This will impress ANY chocolate lover. And even people who don’t normally eat chocolate, like me. (I swear by white chocolate and vanilla flavored stuff, but yummeh hot brownies are one true exception)

Honestly. Monkey see monkey do, just follow my recipe exactly and you can’t go wrong. It’s not as difficult or cumbersome as it looks. I even give you permission to lie to whoever you’re baking this for and say you were the genius who came up with this recipe on your own. *cough*


Let’s get started.


YOU WILL NEED:


An 8″ circle baking tin for baking the brownies in

Non-stick cooking spray

♥ — 2 eggs
♥ — 1/2 cup butter (melted, salted. if you do not have salted butter, use 1/2 teaspoon salt)
♥ — 3/4 cup white sugar
♥ — 3/4 cup self-raising flour
♥ — 1/2 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
♥ — 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
♥ — 3 tablespoons chocolate milk (or only 2 tablespoons if you like it fudgey!)
♥ — 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

The last part is optional. You can add milk chocolate chips, or dark choc, or white choc, or nuts (yuck!) whatever floats your boat. I chose to use just milk choc chips and they turned out nommilicious. If you use something else and they don’t turn out as good, that’s not my fault. :P


Step 1:
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C. Spray your non-stick cooking spray over your 8″ baking tin, or if you don’t have cooking spray, grease it lightly with butter.


Step 2:
Combine the vanilla extract, sugar, and butter in a big bowl. Mix well.


Step 3:
Add the eggs in, one by one while mixing thoroughly.

Your mixture should look something like this now!



Step 4:
Carefully combine the cocoa powder and flour to your previous mixture. This will thicken up the batter a lot, so don’t freak out if it’s really dry, we’ll be adding milk in a bit.


Step 5: Pour in 3 tablespoons of chocolate milk and lightly stir in the chocolate chips. It will take a minute or two of constant slow stirring for your batter to absorb the chocolate milk in, but once it does..

You will get the wonderfully rich and gooey batter as seen above! ^.^ If your batter is still too stiff (due to incorrect measurements of previous ingredients?), you can try adding more chocolate milk, bit by bit, till you get a batter consistency you’re truly satisfied with. At this point you can taste-test the sweetness to see how you like it too! You can always adjust or tweak this recipe to your own liking. But don’t do it if you’re a total noob coz then you might screw it up, lul.

♥ Note – If you like heavier, fudgey brownies (which is what is served outside most of the time), 2 tablespoons will do. Or if you want like a block of chocolate, use 1. LOL. I prefer slightly lighter texture so I used 3.



Step 6:
Pour the batter evenly into your greased baking pan and set the timer for 40-50 minutes, or until you insert a toothpick / chopstick and it comes out clean.

….Now THIS is the tricky part, and I advise to read carefully. This is what other baking recipes don’t tell you.

If you use a different shaped or sized pan, cooking time will be different, and I can’t tell you how long it’ll take because I don’t know what size you’ll use. I strongly suggest using an 8″ circle pan like I did. If you use a bigger baking pan and your batter is thinner, reduce cooking time, and vice versa.

Everyone’s oven also works differently, so cooking time for your brownies may differ even if you do use an 8″ pan. My oven is old and battered, from the hundreds of cupcakes and cakes I do on a daily basis, so I don’t think it’s working as well as it used to anymore. Stuff that used to take 20 minutes to bake, now takes about 30.

So my timing of 40-50 minutes is a rough estimate for you guys.. mine actually took almost 50 mins, but your new swanky oven may take only 40. If your oven is even older and in worse condition than mine, perhaps it takes 50+ minutes. I advise to start checking on your brownies when you’re nearing the 40 minute mark. Check back on it every now and then, and poke a toothpick through. Once it comes out clean, you can leave it in for another few minutes for a slightly crispy top if it hasn’t already formed yet!!! :)

Just don’t overcook it, or your brownies will be hard / too crispy / dry instead of moist and gooey / fudgey like it’s supposed to be. Once you’re sure your brownies have cooked perfectly, take it out of the oven, let it cool for awhile and then remove from the pan.

.
.
.
.

Hopefully, yours will turn out to look something like….


THIS!!


Ok hahaha I know that doesn’t look quite right sitting there like that because 1) It’s circle shaped, and brownies are meant to be square-ish. That’s not a big deal to me, but if it is to you, feel free to use a square shaped tin of a similar size instead.

And 2) It has a lot of wholes on the top. I used fat chopsticks to poke it instead of toothpicks so they’re kinda obvious.

But other than that, can we please focus on….

HOW GLORIOUSLY CHOCOLATEY AND MOIST IT IS??? ♥ ♥ ♥

And look at the perfectly crispy top!!! :’)

The bottom part sorta melts in your mouth (you’ll never find a softer brownie that is still quite fudgey and rich) while the crispy part gives it a nice bite! It is very dark brown in color because the chocolate explosion in your mouth is like omggg.

Obviously not for diet-watchers haha. YOUR LOSS!!

Sam and I reckon they’re the best brownies we’ve ever had, and we’re crazy dessert lovers. I won’t be surprised if he marries me for culinary skills alone LOL.

Cut into squares / rectangles to serve, and always remember to serve warm!! Now that wasn’t so hard, was it? Told you anyone could do it.

Tastes the best on it’s own so no ice cream required. When you pop them into the mirowave for just a bit, the chocolate bits melt all over again and it tastes like a chocolate lava cake of sorts. :D

….So that’s the end of tummy-growling-inducing pictures!!!! If you do try them, let me know how they turned out for you! I’ll be damned if it’s not fantastic, hurrr.

Happy
nomming!!!

If you have a request for another type of cooking or baking tutorial, let me know and I’ll see if I can come up with a good one for you :)

19 things I did when I was 19

Seriously I think I’m a bit lagging behind. A week after 2012 has started than I do this list lolol but it’s okay, better late than never.

So I finally decided to sum up my 2011 into one blog post, sorta like a “flashback” on the year, just revisiting some memories and noting down the more prominent ones.

Nothing like a walk down memory lane to remind yourself of the lessons you’ve learned and what your goals should be next year. At this point in time I haven’t actually reviewed a list of things to blog about yet, so I’m hoping I don’t get stuck with this blog post halfway coz I ran out of interesting events to talk about. Now that would be quite sad. My memory is so bad that I can’t remember a lot of what happened last year wtf. -_- I even forgot what I had for lunch yesterday.

And this is why I need a blog. I need my own space on the internet to keep track of all the things that have happened in my life ♥ Because I swear, I’m going to have Alzheimer’s disease when I’m older… I already have it now. Now I’m mostly only going to blog about the nicer stuff coz obviously a lot of the shittier stuff I keep to myself and don’t pollute this blog with.

My 2011 in a (really summarized and brief overview) nutshell..

19 things that happened
when I was 19!!!!!!!!!

.
.
.


1) I permed my hair.
(January 2011)

WAHAHAHAHAH talk about a bad start to a new year. Fucking ugly. Looks so year 2000. FML.

Pls pls pls pls never perm your hair again Jessica. You look something like a 2 cent china whore. Nothing wrong with spending an extra 30 minutes styling it when you need it!

.
.
.
.


2) I saw Taylor Swift live on her Speak Now Tour.
(January 2011)

Thus beginning my healthy obsession with her. I say healthy because she’s a great role model for girls all around the world and everyone can relate to her songs. Nothing wrong with looking up to someone like that! I liked her before this, which iswhy I went to see her in concert.. but NOWHERE near as to how much I like her now! During her concert, I didn’t know a few songs she sung so I went back to Youtube them.

The more I listened to her other songs, the more I really liked them. Even as I am blogging this now I am listening to her songs. So yes, it’s official, I’m a fan girl.

Speaking of which, I bought standing pen tickets to see her live in Perth in March. I can’t wait LOLOLOL me and Sam are going nuts over it. I’ve officially poisoned him with her music cuz I listen to it everyday and he knows all the words to her songs now.

It’s going to be so fun dancing to her song with him during the last leg of her Speak Now tour ^______^

.
.
.
.


3) Spent Valentine’s Day with Sam.
(February 2011)

Bubbling hot spa with an open view of the sea.. A pretty unique experience.

We had a relaxing 2 hour massage, chocolate fondue, a dip in the pool, and alfresco Italian dining at night! Definitely one of the highlights of our year. Utterly romantic. I’m hoping 2012′s Valentine’s Day is going to top 2011′s. :)

.
.
.

4) Baked and decorated my Mum a birthday cake.
(March 2011)

Coated with fresh cream and adorned with fake flowers. :P

Now this event is really important. I’ve always had an interest for baking but I constantly failed at it. My cookies would turn out charred black and my cakes would be uncooked in the middle. However I watched HUNDREDS of Youtube videos online, read tutorial after tutorial and finally took the plunge.

Went bought several hundreds of dollars worth of baking equipment, and made my first cake. Put the theories and methods I learned about online to the test in real life.

I thought to myself, “Hey, I’m not so bad. This is quite fun. With enough practice, I might get good at this.”

And that was THE moment baking became a real possibility for me.

.
.
.
.

5) Chopped off my hair. *gulps* (March 2011)

Because it was a tangled mess beyond rescue. Thank goodness it’s slowly growing back now…

If someone held a pair of scissors near my hair now, I’d scream!

.
.
.
.

6) Attempted buttercream decorating for the first time. (March 2011)

This was my first ever piped rose. HAHAHAHA that’s quite pathetic even for a first timer.

But hey, look at what I can do now! People are always like “Eyyy how did you get so good at baking omg I’ll never be that good blah blah.”

You’re wrong. My first ever attempt at cake making was in March 2011, merely 7 months ago. That is a little over HALF a year. You just have to be determined enough!!! I would say baking is 40% talent, but 60% skill. It’s learned, you’re not born with the knowledge.

Put your heart to it. Anything is easier once you are actually willing to learn. Your attitude determines you from being the dude who has “potential”, or the person who enjoys great success.

Our first batch of nicely-ish frosted cupcakes. Sam said my pink flowers looked like vaginas, LOL. But still I didn’t give up!!!!!

.
.
.
.

7) I launched my business,
“Shiberty’s Sweets” at shibertys.blogspot.com (March 2011)

Today, it is my main source of income. Nowadays, I’m known as “the cupcake blogger” – LOL. Imagine that. Hobby to occupation in an instant. A week after my first batch of cupcakes, I decided to set up a simple website with childish looking graphics and sell them online. Daring, if I do say so myself.

Thinking about it now, I was taking a huge risk. I was BARELY considered a beginner baker and already I wanted to sell it to other consumers. What if they got food poisoning and died? Omg. And to the first few people who bought cupcakes from me, if you’re still reading this little blog, THANK YOU.

Thank you, thank you thank you thank you.

You didn’t buy from me because everyone else was doing it too. You didn’t buy from me because I was an established or popular bakery or because I was better than others. You bought from this crazy blogger who had a passion for baking because YOU believed in me! I wasn’t even that sure of myself. I dunno what made you do it, if I were you I wouldn’t buy from me (AHAHAH) but I am really thankful for being given this opportunity. :’)

I think, if I didn’t have silent but strong supporters out there, I’d just be another girl who likes to bake but never quite made it anywhere. Because of your ever changing demands and support that never falters, I strive to improve. I have no time to sit around and be complacent. I’m pushed everyday. Pushed to be better for you, to come up with nicer designs, to work on my techniques and exploring new methods because at 7 months I am still learning.

I am honestly sorry to those I have genuinely disappointed during my time of operating Shiberty’s Sweets. If I didn’t reply your email in time, if your cake didn’t quite turn out the way you imagined it to be, etc…. I know people order cakes for special occasions and I hate it when I don’t deliver. It’s my first time running a business, albeit an online one, and I make mistakes. Sometimes my laziness or stubborn attitude gets the better of me, sometimes I don’t try as hard as I could’ve. But most days, I try until my bones ache and my back’s about to break. And I promise I will be even better this year. Just watch me.

/end of dramatic speech

8) Traveled across the border to Sunway Lagoon, Malaysia. (Technically Jan 2011 but only blogged about it May 2011)

It was… a rather disappointing trip.

I had fun, but definitely not as much as we all predicted. Sunway Lagoon sucks, and whoever ever said it was fun sucks too. And this is coming from an ardent theme park fan.

Managed to squeeze in some Spa time still. Yay.

.
.
.

9) Got my blog revamped
and moved over to Shiberty.com (June 2011)

A much needed change!!! BYEBYE Pedophaelic moniker. To all of you perverts who have landed on this blog after searching “underage girls having sex with a monkey on mum’s bed” or something as twisted as that (I still get it till today), BEGONE!! SHOO!

For you new readers out there, this was my old website, hosted at www.underage-girl.blogspot.com. Please resist the impending urge to put your palm to your forehead. :P

My web designer was a friend of a blog reader / cake customer. She offered to do my design for my for free and I was sooo glad because she did such a good job! And I’m loving the much more mature domain name. I used to hate it when people asked me for my blog link lol. I like how the new layout represents me. But until now I haven’t done a proper “About Me” page yet, omg epic fail… I’ve been meaning to write up a more interesting one. I swear I’m going to get it done before January ends. I CANNOT drag it any longer.

.
.
.

10) Escaped to a short getaway at Bintan, Indonesia. (July 2011)

Only 45 mins away via ferry! Already so much more idyllic. Ironically in Singapore, 45 minutes is the amount of time you’d take to get to the City / Town if you’re lucky and there’s no jam on the roads.

Stayed at a nice hotel…

…and soaked up some sun.

Went jet skiing around the neighboring islands and didn’t fall off it into the ocean this time. Yay! Well I did jump off my jet ski into the water but that was by choice, I didn’t get knocked off by a massive monsoon wave like I did in Phuket in 2009. Amazinggggg fun.

My jet ski did break down halfway though (or ran out of petrol) and we had to be dragged back to shore by another jet ski. Why do these things always happen to me?

.

11) Screamed out lyrics as Lady Gaga performed meters away from me live
. (July 2011)

She is an incredible live performer!!! Sam and I rocked out to her hit songs for more than an hour.

.
.
.
.

12) Made our first Proposal cake. (August 2011)

So this… should probably be big on the fiance’s list and not mine, but I thought it was awesome how we could be part of someone’s proposal!! :’) How often do you get to be part of a stranger’s big day? Getting married is such a big deal and only happens once in your life! (Well hopefully only once)

The sweet lady even emailed me to tell me how much she loved it! Definitely made my week. Wishing you and your husband LOTS of LOVE in your marriage!!!!!

.
.
.
.


13) Blogged about the controversial Frolick incident.
(August 2012)

You can read it here. What can I say? I did it out of part self-righteousness, part boredom and part spite. Well whatever it was, it worked because cake business and blog hits boomed.

It’s not a post I’m proud of or will speak of much in the future, but considering my post got retweeted over 100 times on Twitter and received quite a bit of attention from Singaporeans, I thought it should be on this list somewhere. My opinions in that post may differ from the ones that I have today.

14) My first ever pet, a Pudding hamster called Pudding passed away :(… (September 2011)

I don’t wanna talk much about it in case I get upset again and everything I have to say, I’ve already said it here. I’ll miss you buddy! ♥

.
.
.
.

15) Took a long trip to Australia again. I’ve never been to Sydney!! (September 2011)

I tried an O2bar. wtf.

Went up the gorgeous Blue Mountains. Waterfalls and rain forests await.

Hai kangaroo.

Frolicked around Bondi Beach.

.
.
.
.

16) Hello, we meet again, Gold Coast! (September, 2011)

View from our apartment



Dream World



Movie World

Virgin snorkel trip in the turquoise waters of Queensland, Australia! :D

Sand boarding down giant sand dunes head first. Not as fun as it sounds.

.
.
.
.

17) Went up to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for the Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards with a huge number of other bloggers. (December 2011)

.
.
.
.

18) Obviously, I crapped out a shit ton of cakes and cupcakes for a lot of different people. (Throughout 2011)

You can click on the “baking” label on my blog to see all the work I’ve done! Hundredsss of cupcakes and cakes. Actually, wait, I believe they are in the high THOUSANDS. Sometimes in one day alone over 150 cupcakes were made.

Here’s a few events where Shiberty’s Sweets was featured…

Doing charity for Japan with Nuffnang

Budget Barbie with Clicknetwork thanks to Qiu Qiu!!

Cupcakes from Shiberty’s Sweets sitting pretty a Cozycot event :)

Extremely gratifying seeing peoples reactions to my cupcakes in real life and hearing them rave! Makes all the effort more than worth it.



My babies!

Did some interviews and shoots for / with my cakes.

I hope that means I’m doing something right.

My cupcakes in a magazine!

.
.
.
.

19) And the final activity I’m going to talk about is something I haven’t blogged about before.

I went whale watching in the Gold Coast on my birthday (September 20th) and it was

SO AWESOME WTFFFFF
*dies*

*…..revives and dies again*

Whales were breaching (jumping out of the water with massive force) everywhere around us and we even managed to attract the attention of a couple of Humpback Whales and they CAME RIGHT OVER TO OUR BOAT AND PLAYED WITH US!!! By playing I mean consciously responding to our actions and making an effort to interact with us.

Trivia:
Humpback whales grow to be about 52 feet (16m) long, weighing 30-50 tons (27-45 tonnes).

LOOK at how they wave their arms (I mean flap their fins lol) as if to say hello!!!!! I couldn’t believe that was happening to us. On my birthday. How perfect. :’)))) Probably the happiest day of my 2011.

These gentle giants were extremely intelligent. I have more pictures but I’ll save them for another blog post!!!!!! Because this one is already long enough. I don’t know what took me so long to blog about these guys wtf it’s one of my best memories EVERRRR in my life, along with this.

I obviously love dolphins & whales, if you don’t understand my enthusiasm.

.
.
.
.

Okay end of blog post!!!!!

Feeling all excited now talking about the amazing encounter I had with those humpback whales. Going to lie on the bed now and re-live those moments :D :DDDD Stuff like that DEFINITELY doesn’t happen every day. Counting my blessings.

HAPPY IZ ME. Starting off the New Year with a positive mindset that this year it will be even better.
