Ok! Ok! An Update!

Yep. Feeling a bit better physically although I still can't hear much out my left ear. Been kept pretty busy with shifts, assignments and generally trying to figure my new lifestyle out. I don't feel like putting a long written spiel so I'm gonna keep it mostly visual. Happy with that?

Well, that's all you're getting.

Right-o. Starting off with my candy review from The Remarkable Sweet Shop. I chose...
The classic American Twinkie because I remember watching that movie Zombie Land (I think that's what's called?) and seeing one of the main characters scour every store in search of his beloved Hostess Twinkies. Not that exciting in appearance is it?
Here it is again with a better background. Still not exciting. However maybe the taste would be better!

Unfortunately not. It was really artificial and, well, boring. Disappointed. I give it only half a star.

Okay. Next...

The week before last I went to the Taste Queenstown Festival and had my face painted for only $2.00. What a deal! I took photos so I'll never forget.

Then this week I did it again!

Oh. And I also bought this hat because I fell in love with it. Seriously. It is also great for those cold days to keep my brain warm.

 I also loved my makeup that day. Sigh. Admire.

So. That's it for now. Just a quick blog post to keep everyone happy. It's all about me, me, me. Sorry about that.

What do you think about the picture quality? I've been trying to get a low res image for downloading purposes but I don't know if I've gone too far. I think I have...

Have a wonderful week everyone. I miss you all!

I'm sick!

As the title says.

I don't think I'll be blogging until I feel better.

Week 1: Got through it!

Yay! I got through the first week. During some points it was really hard and I just wanted to go home but, as everyday passes, I get more comfortable.

The first week was a good amount of work. We got right into it, which is a good thing. We already have our first assignment to produce a hotel relevant CV and cover letter so I will get onto that as soon as I finish this post.

I've pretty much figured the bus system out. Buying that pre-paid card for $300 is worth its weight in gold! It has been so useful because you have to travel quite far for the supermarket not to mention Fernhill is ridiculously steep and I will not walk up it. I have also joined the Queenstown Library. They've recently made the process free for students---so another yay from me.

This morning I went to the "Taste of Queenstown" festival (at least that's what I think it's called). So here are some of the photos.

 These two cup-cake photos are from a soap seller who had all these dessert soaps. They looked amazingly pretty.

And these two ladies were a hoot.
So anyway, that's it! I haven't got anything else at the moment unless you specifically request something. Before you ask: we got our uniforms but I'll blog about that next week.

Another picture entry

More scenes of Queenstown. Isn't it stunning? I'm beginning to sound boring.

These Periwinkle flowers were growing on a wall outside the college. There were so many and they looked so nice I had to take a photo.
And this is the pug dog that the caretakers of the residence own. I think his name is Winston and he's there for security.

Also today I went to the Remarkables Sweet Shop. They have stacks of international confectionery available. It was pretty incredible.

I did buy something that appealed to me. These are called Flying Saucers and I do believe they come from Germany.
The outside is starchy like an ice cream cone and when you bite into them...
 ...they contain sherbert.

They were quite nice but on a scale of 1-5 I'll give them 2.

The reason they were so low was because the outside was bland and stuck to the inside of my mouth. The sherbert was nice but that's all I can say about them.

They were nice.

So that's all for now.
