New cone record

Okay, I thought getting six soft serve cones (ice cream) in a single order was a lot. But not any more. Today, a customer ordered twelve, yes, twelve cones at once! And there I was, setting up three cone holders, as each can hold four, and making four cones at a time.
Every day, the McDonald's at which I work sells dozens, maybe close to a hundred soft serves. I know they are cheap (only AU$0.50), but do they really taste that good?

Dream pet

Hopefully in the not-too-far-away future, I will be able to get a dog. My dream pet would be a Samoyed! They are also affectionately known as the Christmas dog, because of their permanent sweet smiles! I saw a Sammy in ShangHai at the end of last year, it was magnificent. A great contrast it was too. Its pure white coat against the smoky chilly winter morning.

I've got some pics of this beautiful breed below. Enjoy!

An eight-week old Samoyed puppy! Aww...

Doesn't this pic just melt your heart?

New book from J.K. Rowling

Yay! I'm so happy!

From December 4th this year, the wonderfully amazing J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, will release a new book, The Tales of Beedle the Bard. A wizarding classic, this collection of five richly imaginative fairy tales was translated by Hermione Granger from ancient runes, complete with an introduction, notes and illustrations reproduced from the original handcrafted book, and extensive commentary on each of the tales from Professor Albus Dumbledore.

The hardcover book will be released on December 4th. Can't wait! =)

Dreary days

It's been raining a lot lately.
I know it's good, since Melbourne desperately needs water. But whenever it rains, I feel somewhat weary, my mood dampened. I prefer sunny days.
Also when it rains, I just want to stay in bed.

Now I can't wait for spring!
