degustation, key ceremony, saturdayyyy

Its the first weekend of December! time for some updates! 

I attended the Degustation Dinner last thursday. its like a 7 course tasting meal, matched with 7 different wines for each course. it was an enjoyable event that i finally got to attend! last term, i was still in practical and i was working for this event while watching other people don on their best dress and suit, and turn up for the event. this year, thou art not jealous anymore. This year, the theme was Around The World, meaning u're supposed to dress according to your country colour, and the meals will be according to the different countries.  enjoy the photos! :)

so the week passed and we all had our presentations. boy was it a tough week, having different group meetings for different days. but all's good. managed to secure HighDistinction (HD) for my Business Communication , Distinction (D) for Management & Leadership and D for Marketing presentations! niceeeee, like the Ds and HDs. now, im left with my final exams and off i go to placement! so egggcited!

Today, its a Saturday! went down to sydney city for apartment inspection. sighhh, both apartments didn't appeal to us at all. howwwwww! 1 week plus more to go before we have to leave school campus... anw, i started packing my luggage already, cus im gonna meet my parents right after i end my exams on monday(12/12), and i'll only be back at BM on the 14th. but school residence closes on the 14th, thus i have to move out early... which is before i meet my family on monday. 
so we spent an hour packing my wardrobe and everything into the luggage and boxes. gonna shift them to Kyu's (guy in bottom left in grey hoodie) house tomorrow.
thankkkkkyouuuuuuuu jky for helping me pack my clothes and luggage and box :D
gonna hunt for more houses on monday, and hopefully SOMETHING IS OF GOOD QUALITY!!! the price of rentals here in sydney CBD ain't cheap mannnn. the ones we went to inspect were $3200/month and $3000/month. sighhh, pleaseeeeee gimme a decent apartment to live in...
