Travel : Hunter Valley Trip

I will get back with part 2 of my Brisbane & Gold Coast Trip on the next post ! For now, let me bring you to my short escape one-day trip to Hunter Valley only 2 hours away from Sydney City!

Outfit of the Day
Blouse – Beesknees
Shorts – Supre
Blazer – Beesknees
Oxford Shoes – F21
Shawl – Korea

I went over with Unimates clique , trip starts early at 9am sharp and ended approximately on 8pm. Yes, I know how very productive is that?!  ( All cost included I paid only $46! Best deal ever 😀 !)

Here’s our itenary for the day trip :

Hunter Valley Cheese Company – Cheese Tasting
McGuigans Winery – Wine Tasting
McWilliams Mount Pleasant Wines – Winery Tour
Gardens Village – Boutique shops and restaurants with landscaped gardens for a picnic lunch
Hunter Valley Garden – Ten-themed gardens to be explored ( MY FAVOURITE!!)
Mount View – capture the entire vast view of Hunter Valley
Wollombi Valley – Antique shops, historical colonial buildings and other attractions

First up, Cheese Tasting. We went over to cheese company and its so interesting to see their cheese making factory! Anyway, they offered 5 types of different types of cheese that I virtually never ate or tasted before. Its freshly produced and there’s also water and crackers offered ( as its bit too salty if you eat them alone like that)

After that we have a short lunch break and I ordered a Pasta of the Day from one of the cafeteria, and boy was it the BEST PASTA I HAVE EVER HAD!! yum!

Wine Tasting and Winery Tour

As most of you know, Hunter Valley is quite well-known for their winery production. If we were to go there during summer season , we will have the privilege to see the whole grape ripe process and everything. Yes, the person in charge basically explained on how the grapes were planted mainly during summer but definitely not winter season. Oh well, we still get to taste those ah-mazing wine and get an indoor factory tour!

Next, we went over to Hunter Valley Garden. My favourite part.They have a whole lot of garden themes (over 10) and Story Book theme is the most unique! Its easily Australia’s biggest and most beautiful garden ever! Just entering the Storybook garden is an experience in itself – through a giant storybook that is being read by topiary giraffes!

 Indian-themed garden

Everywhere else – other various theme in the garden

Overall, its a fulfilling and very productive trip with the whole unimates clique (I went over together with 27 other people 🙂 )

Stay tuned till the next update ❤

Life is like a cup of tea, its all in how you make it.

So I finally enrolled in 3114 , thankfully timetable still looking good!


(see, still have my Monday and Fridays off!)

Now that one stressful decision been strike off, next up is results. You know how at the beginning of every semester you seem to be very motivated all of a sudden, you have this ‘resolution’ list came up with full of ‘I will, I will’ but all seemed to be ignored when the semester start. I hope this time is different for me. So a little about me , I’m currently on an internship with vodafone and very happy about that so far , it makes my life more fulfilling with those experience. Though I could not help but to look forward in a bit , so I went on for a job application spree,came up with cover letters and the usual stuff (though there’s silly-but-pretty-serious-accident involved as i send those job application, but ohwell).

Indecisive train of thoughts

(irrelevant gif made from cinemag.ram to color the entry with some cheer before I ramble)

The Indeciveness

You know, I keep telling myself whenever my life is flooded with distress and uncertainty that ” It gets better, stay strong”. I did, and I move on. I got strucked with several indecisive point in my life and I hated it excessively, its like the feeling of drilling a hole into my brain. Talking about indecisive, what actually makes a person couldnt decide?One word, fear. The immense risk that may come from making wrong decision is indescribable because we know we could not make a U turn , once we choose plan A , plan B will be scraped. No second chance.Fair enough 🙄

I could not decide on an elective for next semester now, that’s why I’m writing this entry,somehow writing it here really helps to explore up the inner self (wtf am i saying). So its either New Product Marketing(3114) or Marketing Communications(3112) .I’m the type of person that group project work actually lift my mark and that’s why at first I’m leaning towards the 3112 where plenty a lot of group project and final exam. 3114 consist of 2 exams and 1 major group project.The thing is , I’ve been warned by a friend that 3112 is hard 😯
this really triggers my brain to change it and enroll in 3114 instead. My brain was all “You’d been warned this is a major sign to change it already! 3114 have 2 exams , even though you aren’t exam type of student, pretty sure if you put your mind to it , it’d be do-able, exams = they give you topics to study, project = its entirely not dependent on whether you study or not” .

Both is a gamble. However, after much thoughts and mental calculations (yes, you probably notice how I choose an elective entirely on how much I could score on it 😕 ) . I think I’d go ahead with 3114 , I think the only thing that made me wanted 3112 was that I have friends who enroll in that and so I automatically assumed I’d higher chance in scoring. But false, I’d did electives in last semester with a genius friend of mine , but still, results still as average as ever. So you know, I’m gonna take 3114 , hopefully teamed up with dream team and get a not-fail mark for project and for the 2 exams, just gonna study it off. It’s better cause at least exams, I know I can do well if I put my mind to it. For 3112 many projects , even if I put my mind to it , if its wrong, if the lecturer didnt like it = NO POINT.

Okay, thanks wordpress. I’m gonna go ahead with my enrolment variation 🙂
