“Guess where I am? eating cookies’n’cream ice cream at docklands. watching the sun sets and not feeling my thumbs *grins*”
That would be my entry on Twitter, if I do twit.
As part of the assignment due this Friday, I have to come up with some videos that represent my propositions. I tried to do what I could, really, because a) I hate the subject, and b) I’m not that good at operating camera.
So I roamed around Swanston st on my first attempt. After a not-so-good lunch despite being very hungry, I stalked around QV, State Library and Melbourne Central for some ideas. Ended up with 4-5 videos and passerbys looking strangely at me, wondering why would this little girl holding up a mirror in the middle of the street. Also got a warning from State Library security guy for taking a video inside the exhibition room. My bad, sorry, but no I didn’t delete the video like I said I would =p
I hopped on my best public transport the glorious City Circle tram, the red one, and sat at the very back. Three videos whilst riding, liking two of them. When the tram stopped at Docklands, I intuitively got off. Maybe I was drawn by the sky which has turned amber on the west, and the towers of Bolte Bridge. The weather was positively freezing.
Once I was on the dock, I went straight to work. I stumbled upon two men and a boy holding their fishing poles and I hurriedly prepared my mirror, was aware that the chinese guy inside Mecca Bar was eyeing me curiously. After two attempts and not quite happy because the men ended up perching on the far side of the frame very insignificantly, I continued strutting along the dock. I managed to get some of the water and giant wheel, but was dissapointed for not being able to capture Bolte Bridge without zooming in the camera and knowing that I will end up with an extremely shaky shot. meh. Maybe I should go to a neurologist for my shaky hands.
After all those ‘laborious’ minutes, I decided to treat myself with two small scoops of Dairy Bell ice cream, which was open in spite of the weather. I love Dairy Bell. I think some of their ice cream are better than Il Dolce or Anticca. With a smile on my face and lithesome on my feet, I rested myself on a bench and watched the sun melted into the horizon. It was kinda romantic, if not for being alone and having frozen thumbs. But I’ll live. hehe.
I missed the city circle tram on my way back =( but not to fret, I might as well enjoyed the biting temperature. I won’t be having that anymore in very few months ahead. Once on King st, I turned left to get some Chicken 65, a new favorite from Biryani House thanks to Mira Pangkey who once again has proved that I have been right to trust her blindly =D My craze over Wicked the musical(!!!), The Idea of North, escargot, and Indian food esp. butter chicken, are all originated from her. You’re awesome, meewah *smooch*
And now, watching American Idol. It’s ballad/jazz week, and am enjoying the show so far. No change that. I LOVE the show this week! Love the songs, love the contestants.
Will continue on eZediaQTI and dinner now. Ow tuesday please come quick!
