Hi everyone, hope you had a great Christmas without too many cares.

Sadly, sometimes Christmas is far from care-free, with the costs and stresses of getting supplies getting some people down that they can almost forget it is a time to celebrate. I'm happy to tell you that there IS a solution.

From the bottom of my heart, I can recommend the Chrisco Christmas hamper club...



With a little bit of planning, you can spend the year paying off supplies little by little. You will hardly notice that the money has gone each week, but come Christmas time, it will all add up to a wonderful hamper of Christmas goods being delievered to your house. The sooner you order and start paying, the smaller your weekly/fortnightly/mothly (whatever suits you best) payments will be.

The full range of hamper choices can be viewed online, or you can request a catalogue by calling 1800 28 28 28.

It may sound like a well-worn advertising slogan, but never a truer word was spoken when they say you can save for a magical Christmas with Chrisco.

I am not a troll, nor do I make any profit from posting this. I simply believe in this program, and am sure you will too if you give it a go.

'Sup guys? *waves* ^-^

I'm REAL bored and the music at home is just nonstop rewinds and replays. So, instead of sitting on my ass all day like I had originally planned (Such is the life)...I wanted to ask you guys:

Do you know of any good songs I can download?

Also, I've been watching anime lately and I wanted to know:

Which anime do you guys recommend?

Hrm...yeah, that's about it ^^!. Thanks!! *hugs you all randomly* *squee~!!*

BASK IN MY GLORY!! Lol. I've found this site, and if any of you haven't heard of it before, I recommend you go visit it, it's funny as: http://www.asianjoke.com/


Top 10 Advantages of Being Asian:
1. You can pretend you don't speak English when you're around stupid people.
2. Everyone asks your advice on computers, cameras, carryout, VCRs, Toyotas and Karate.
3. You look enough like Bruce Lee that when you get in a fight, all you have to do is squint your eyes and howl to scare people.
4. There are a lot more opportunities for casting in war movies.
5. No one expects you to drive well.
6. People mistake you for a Laundromat owner and bring you a lot of neat clothes.
7. You can be from Perth and still be considered "exotic"
8. If you ever commit a crime, you can get good laughs when your description is passed around (black hair, brown eyes, glasses).
9. You get people coming up to you all the time saying neat things in languages you don't speak.
10. During times of war, you get free outdoor housing at a local house track.

This is funny... for Aussies only~! [03 Mar 2005|04:07pm]
tarechick
The questions below about Australia are from potential visitors. They were posted on an Australian Tourism Website and the answers are the actual responses by the website officials, who obviously have a sense of humour.

Q: Does it ever get windy in Australia? I have never seen it rain on TV, so how do the plants grow? (UK).

A: We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around watching them die.

Q: Will I be able to see kangaroos in the street? (USA)

A: Depends how much you've been drinking.

Q: I want to walk from Perth to Sydney - Can I follow the railroad tracks? (Sweden)

A: Sure, it's only three thousand miles, take lots of water.

Q: Is it safe to run around in the bushes in Australia? (Sweden)

A: So it's true what they say about Swedes.


Q: Are there any ATMs (cash machines) in Australia? Can you send me a list of them in Brisbane, Cairns, Townsville and Hervey Bay? (UK)

A: What did your last slave die of?

Q: Can you give me some info about hippo racing in Australia? (USA)

A: A-fri-ca is the big triangle shaped continent south of Europe. Aus-tra-lia is that big island in the middle of the Pacific which does not... oh forget it. Sure, the hippo racing is every Tuesday night in Kings Cross. Come naked.

Q: Which direction is North in Australia? (USA)

A: Face south and then turn 90 degrees. Contact us when you get here and we'll send the rest of the directions.

Q: Can I bring cutlery into Australia? UK)

A: Why? Just use your fingers like we do.

Q: Can you send me the Vienna Boys' Choir schedule? (USA)

A: Aus-tri-a is that quaint little country bordering Ger-man-y, which
is...oh forget it. Sure, the Vienna Boys Choir plays every Tuesday night in Kings Cross, straight after the hippo races. Come naked.

Q: Can I wear high heels in Australia? (UK)

A: You are a British politician, right?

Q: Are there supermarkets in Sydney and is milk available all year round? (Germany)

A: No, we are a peaceful civilization of vegan hunter gatherers. Milk is
illegal.

Q: Please send a list of all doctors in Australia who can dispense
rattlesnake serum. (USA)

A: Rattlesnakes live in A-meri-ca which is where YOU come from. All
Australian snakes are perfectly harmless, can be safely handled and make good pets.

Q: I have a question about a famous animal in Australia, but I forget its name. It's a kind of bear and lives in trees. (UK)

A: It's called a Drop Bear. They are so called because they drop out of gum trees and eat the brains of anyone walking underneath them. You can scare them off by spraying yourself with human urine before you go out walking.

[ mood | nostalgic ]

Well to everyone who reads this and I haven't talked to in the past 2 months since my last entry, Happy 2005!

2004 was a year that brought a LOT of changes to my life and I don't regret anything, but I DO miss Melbourne HEAPS! (as pointed out by someone, only aussies use the word HEAPS)

I miss driving... miss walks on the beach, I miss puccinis, Charltons n chatting with Charm, Crown Casino, Village Cinemas, Chappelis and Chapel St, La Porchetta, St. Kilda, Port Melbourne, Monash Uni, Pancake Parlour on Doncaster Rd, playing touch-screen games at bluehouse, getting Gelati on Lygon St, waiting for my bf at Melbourne Uni, going shopping at chadstone and seeing all my friends in one place.

X'mas and NY's was all rite... thanks to VnL I had a great time... and miss u guys heaps! Was great to catch up wif Mony n James. No one to play mahjong with anymore... haha Singing K heaps (huh I keep using that word don't I), and cos its so cheap here... but wish there were more ppl around. I don't wanna ask Steff cos they all think they're too good for me now I guess... but it was ok... saw them that nite at L16.

My honey is staying until march anyway so have heaps of time... and I will be going back to melbourne prob. end of April. Hopefully nothing will have changed much in Melbourne... maybe ppl miss me too...:P

Well, if I don't update as much I apologise... if u need to reach me, just email me or add me on MSN. sakura_jc@hotmail.com

NO MORE MATRIX! [01 Sep 2004|11:26pm]

[ mood | optimistic ]

I am going on a self-imposed Matrix famine.

I own pretty much all the music CDs, all three movies (one in DivX, two in SVCD - temporarily of course), and other tracks Don Davis never used but put up on his website to download.

I am not WATCHING or LISTENING to any of them.

And then in December 2004...

...it will be all the sweeter...

How asian are you? [23 Mar 2004|12:50am]
tarechick
[ mood | bored ]

Found this on someone's LJ... Thought I might fill this out too... kekeke

1. Your mother has/had a short-haired, curly perm.
Yes... although straight hair makes her look younger, I have no idea why she perms it... so do all my 'aunties'.

2. Your dad is some sort of engineer.
OMG YES... retired Civil engineer actually...

3. Your parents still tried to get you into places half-price saying you were 12 when you were really 15.
Yeah, too bad i didn't look it... i got into casinos when I was 12 though. Oh n i never wanted to lie to get cheap meals...damn i was dumb!

4. You ask your parents help on one math problem and 2 hours later they're still lecturing.
Never asked my parents about maths... They hired me tutors.

5. You have a 40 lb. bag of rice in your pantry.
Nah just one big bag n it gets emptied into a tub.

6. You shop 99 ranch.
???

7. Everyone thinks you're "Chinese" no matter what part of Asia your
ancestors were from.
Nope... been said i look Jap. Oh by other asians of course tho'.

8. You've had a bowl haircut at one point in your life.
Since I was born till I was about grade 4? Yes and my mum cut my hair.

9. Your parents enjoy comparing you to their friends' kids.
Still do...

10. You've had to sit through karaoke videos with scantily clad, ugly Asian women attempting to dance and walk around a temple, forest, or library.
What? I used to sing to them! We had karaoke when it first came out... n were on LD's! Laser discs

11. Your parents say, "Don't forget your heritage."
Nah they couldn't care less... as long as I don't marry a white guy... but black would be worse!

12. You drive mostly Japanese cars.
Always been Toyota... except for one beemer.

13. You've learned to keep bargaining even if the prices are rock bottom.
Prices are never rock bottom in Asia...even if they say that they're not profiting, that's just bull shit, u can bargain another $50 at least!

14. You've had to eat parts of animals they don't even put in hot dogs.
What's in hot dogs? Errr... Don't really... except I don't mind Ox tongue... keke

15. At least once, you've started a joke with "Confucius say...."
Nope never. Don't know any... does this make me non-asian?

16. You know what bok choy is.
(YES GARLIC, THE CHOICE OF ASIA)<--- wtf??? who is this guy who answered before me? GARLIC? wat the fuck how is bok choy garlic? Its a type of CHOI/VEGIE/CAI... White cabbage... thick at the bottom with green leaves that shrivel when u cook it. usually fried WITH garlic or nothing. CHING CHAU

17. You've gotten little red envelopes around February.
(JAPANESE GET OURS IN JAN)<--- oh ok so the guy was jap... hrmph yeah well used to get red pockets... hardly anymore.

18. Piles of shoes tend to make it hard to open the front, back, and closet doors.
Yes. My dad would buy the same pair of shoes just in different colours if they fit. DOn't even ask how many pairs of shoes my mum has.

19. You hear (your name + eee (optional) + yah!) every time someone calls you (e.g. Jean - ee - yah! or Mary - yah!).
Yeah... Jackie-ah! Ah-Mui-ah!

20. You have no eyelashes.
WTF? Mine are long thank you very much. Why do asians not have eyelashes?

21. Idiot people try to impress you with pathetic imitation Asian languages, like the ever-so-popular: ching chong woo bok chi, etc...
ching chong dimsum chop chop i've prob heard... but then again do u get kung-fu fighting sounds made every time u introduce urself?

22. Your parents say leaving rice in your bowl is a sin.
No but its supposed to mean that the bits of rice left in ur bowl will be the number of pock marks (zit scars) ur partner will have when u marry or smth. So yeah not spposed to leave rice.

23. The Bio lectures on marine life (seaweed, sea cucumbers, octopii) was last night's dinner.
octopii? errr... is this an english lecture? Actually haven't had sea cucumber for awhile... but yeah its nice!

24. Your ancestors 1000 generations back invented the back scratcher.
No but my parents are grateful for that invention...

25. At least one family member wears black wire/plastic frame glasses.

No... i always made my own friends... they didn't really care.

Sometimes... usually it was shoes n stuff that wouldn't have fit me even if i was 5 years younger... damn i'm big boned for an asian! lol

36. Your parents insist you marry within your race.
Oh yeah see above somewhere... they don't insist... i think once i'm 30 they wouldn't give a rat's ass...just as long as i'm married.

37. You never order chop suey, sweet and sour pork, or any other imitation of oriental food.
Wtf IS chop suey? Umm i like sweet & sour stuff once in awhile.. but lemon chicken and honey chicken is nice... Are spring rolls imitation too?

Yup definitely! And thank god i'm not really related to them all!
