This show was actually really well-lit but I forgot my camera, so I included a few shots from my friend’s one instead.
It’s hard to go wrong with this genre, because it’s so catchy and fun. Trollgasm weren’t particularly memorable, but the onstage violinist for certain songs added a nice touch to their fantasy viking metal, with Hummpa Hummpa the most standout song by far.
Troldhaugen were the real stars of the night. Coordinated stage clothes accompanied heavy-handed rocking out, while their vocalist was beyond charismatic. He performed like a man possessed, and I mean that in the best way possible. To top it all off, I always dig a whimsical carnival vibe in my music, so their light-hearted set was seriously impressive.
Korpiklaani means VODKA! VODKA! VODKA! VODKA! With a band like this touring Australia all the way from Finland for the first time, it’s good vibes all around! Their cheerful folk-metal sends the pit into beer-spilling jigs aplenty. Never has metal been so merry!
P.S. I’m in Manila now and my wi-fi isn’t working yet so I’m sharing cable internet… Please excuse any further slowdown in posting!
Back home in Auckland since late Wednesday night and have been out of the house most of the time. Figured it’s time to catch up on November happenings in Sydney and many other backposts.
Song is particularly relevant this month. Seeing Man Overboard’s Manila show in December to catch up with friends! Interested?
Freshly dyed hair! It doesn’t bleed green on my pillowcases and clothes anymore!
Study brunch at Wellco Cafe in Glebe
Many meals with Ray/Ayaka/both. Starting with roast duck + fried rice…
Adobo and beef… (I forgot again) at La Mesa
Rainy dinner on the stormiest night! Lord Of The Fries is not good at all but MANGO MILK TEA with real mango ♡
Spanish Tapas dinner on half-price Mondays! & gelato for dessert!
This doll is so scary…
Moving out my stuff and living out of a suitcase for the last 3 days. My idiot self forgot the laundry rack and rubbish bin :(
Looks like a dead body from the other angle but I was too slow
(Relatively big) group dinner at Crazy Wings and soju night after
Last day in Sydney!!! Finally tried Gelato Messina after 2 years - I like the sponge cake in their strawberry ice cream~
Old Town Hong Kong Restaurant LAST DINNER BYE SYD :’(((
Hundredth, Korpiklaani and Moonsorrow gig posts soon!
Rather boring that the last few days have been spent laboriously packing my stuff to move out.
Here are the CD’s left in my room at the end of this year, stuff I bought, received and picked up for free. Finding that Converge/Hellchild split EP was a proud moment!
Just cataloging this as I often bring home a lot of albums to leave in NZ after copying them to my laptop because moving is a pain! Haven’t even checked some out yet, tbh but will get around to them soon haha.
P.S. I have extra copies of 2013 3Wise Sampler because they gave me a handful since the stall was closing and I think they just wanted to get rid of them @_@
Haven’t done any beauty/cosmetics posts in much too long!
This pair of false eyelashes is from Korean brand Missha. The box does not state specifically but I think this model is No.3/Long & Light.
Light stalk, yet very sturdy, when cleaning glue off and keeps its shape.
Too natural for my liking? Hardly visible when eyes are open.
I personally don’t like how I can barely see them, but they are supposed to be natural after all. This pair of lashes provides some volume, so the best way to describe its effect is looking like you’re wearing mascara… even if you aren’t!
Use this when…
You’d rather not take the effort and time to remove your mascara properly but want to achieve the same effect
Wish to keep the attention on your upper lid’s makeup, not obscured by longer lashes.
It was still Halloween weekend, so the theme for this one was bruised/sick eye :D
Finished my last exam of the semester this afternoon! Another October catch up before bed!!! Stormy weather is relaxing when you’re indoors.

Yay for public holidays! It was cold and somewhat rainy when we arrived but luckily the weather cleared up.

Rock pools are nice and isolated, which makes them super chilled! Even though I tripped over and bled on the way there -_-;
…and no, of course I did not swim hahahahaha
