sheraton on hyde.

On Sunday, James took Rick and I for a gourmet dinner at the Sheraton Hotel. The occasion: farewell dinner for Rick as well as a celebration of the time we have known each other.

The Sheraton Hotel is one of a few hotels in Sydney whose building interior ages really well, a design that is classic but timeless. Upon entry, one steps onto the grandeur maroon coloured marble floors, then to face a grand wrap staircase that takes you to the second floor. The interior is well lit, not to light yet not too dim, perfectly creating the perfect ambiance. The food was amazing, the seafood (not that I eat a lot of it) was really fresh, their fruit produce was in season and their bread collection was amazing!

We had a great time just chatting and catching up. Afterwards, we went to Hyde Park to take some quick outfit snaps. James choreographed a cute photography session and I just can't help but get all gittery and giggly everytime I look at this set. I must warn you, that the next influx of pictures will be quiet mushy and lovey dovey.










We also got a chance to take some individual outfit shots. I finally got to wear the Zara dress my sister bought for me from Shanghai. I love how it is so fitted and it ends up kinda tulling out at the waist. It is also just the right length and looks rad with my Matikos. I went on a bag shopping spree about two weeks ago and ended up splurging on two Alannah Hill bags, which I finally got to wear too.

(Dress: Zara, Shoes: Matiko, Bag: Alannah Hill)

Yesterday, I went on a shopping spree but I feel horrible going about my regular life, as the rest of the people in Japan are suffering from such a horrible natural diaster. I have decided to actually return the items and donated that money to the Red Cross Appeal for the Japanese Quake. I'll also be donating my next pay cheque for them as well. This diaster has hit pretty close to home as we have a lot of friends currently there in Japan, I urgre everyone to give to those in need at this desperate time too. If your in Australia you can donate here

Rick and I are going to Moonlight Cinema in Centinnal Park tomorrow, I'm hoping the weather will be good as its an outdoor event and if the weather holds I'll be able to take some memorable photos of Rick and I.

Until then, have a great one guys!
HOPE to JAPAN and hoping it all gets better soon!!

  9. I stumbled onto your blog and aside from your nice photos, I’m drawn to your writing as well. Most of the time I get scared when I see small fonts but I’m glad I read your words. =) Are you into photography or more of the editing? I do see quite professional shots. Oh and I was reading some posts down. Why is your bf going to the earthquake sites? Is it as voulunteer work or is he in the rescue profession? I’m just curious and it’s really fine if you find it too intrusive and not answer.

  27. Gosh, your shots are always stunning, really nice lighting and all, and I love how you always have your own photos - I try to as well! :) p.s. I'll be posting up my architecture projects' photos soon... ENG ING ENG. Anyway, is that bench you guys are sitting on crooked - as in on an angle??? It bothers me so much! LOL - I gotta ask.
    Hope you're holding up with Rick leaving to Japan and all - and hope he's not leaving to anywhere near the earthquake zones...

  35. I was born in Sydney and then my family and i moved to Brisbane when I was like 13 months old. I've gone back a few times for shopping trips, weddings and stuff because my uncle and cousins live there :) It's just such a good getaway, especially cause i hate long plane rides. 1 hour is so good! Our old house was in Randwick :) Do you live near the city? xxxx

  36. Thanks for replying! Cool, so what's Rick exactly doing over there? Is he doing the working holiday? I hope he'll have tons of fun over there, but from what you're saying it sounds like he's still not sure of where he'll be residing? Well - these natural disasters aren't very predictable, and I suppose because a big one has happened, there shouldn't be any other major one for quite a while... Lucky in a way that Rick hasn't gone there yet. Oliver is also going there in May, and he might actually be volunteering (I'd be very disappointed if he didn't!).
    But why did you actually defer your course? Are you working meanwhile? That's okay, there's always something else good to do and you won't really be wasting time at all... Actually I'm really a late starter (I'm at my second year now and almost 24! I'll be about 28 when I'm finished with my master - and that if I don't fail any subject O_o *sobs*). But what can you say? I love architecture and would never trade it with another job - or maybe I would if i could be a model lol too bad I'm not tall enough!
    Anyway, hope all is well for you! x

  47. You're a very beautiful girl & the dress was so pretty on you :) Taking the items back and donating the money was a very self-less thing to do, not many people would do something like that. I understand, I feel the same & try to help wherever I can. Gorgeous photos :) xx
