"I know another bee's been in that honey..."

So to keep the ball rolling on this blogging thing (to try as best as I can to keep one of my only New Years resolutions) imma go ahead and share some pics from the Lloyd concert my sisters and I went to the other night in Newtown, Sydney. To back pedal a lil I just have to mention that this event is a part of our wish to keep life a constant adventure hence why we are on the move as much as our time and money will allow :)

It's the best when things just happen to work out or are planned in the very last possible minute and this trip to Sydney was no exception. The show began at a bit of a 7 on a scale of 1-10 with silly DJ's who can't do their job's properly (repeating songs already played), supporting acts including one that resembled a B grade Ricky Martin and a gammin host who loved the mic too much and just kept tryna plug The Game's concert which is to be held in the same venue next month. 7pm, 8pm, 9pm...still no Lloyd with only one supporting act that was worth our time there...cue the abusive heckling from the audience (mainly coming from me and my sissys...LOL.) 10pm...STILL no Lloyd. FINALLY at 10:45pm Lloyd decides enough abuse has been yelled at the stage and arrives. Lucky he was the BOMB otherwise I think my shoe would have went flying at his head!! Man his voice is dope, he cut it up and to top it all off and officially make our night boss, he ripped off his sweaty t-shirt as "lay your head, on my pillow" smashed out over the crowd and threw it in our vicinity...cue the semi-brawl that ended with my Jadey and this tall but viciously-hungry-for-the-t-shirt-lady scuffling over the t-shirt.

 Amidst the struggle I ask Jadey if we should just let the crazy lady have it since she was a bit loco for the shirt, Jd looks at me like "are you kidding" and says NAH...with that I activate all my super power strength and deliver the final blow that secured us the t-shirt!!! Poor lady hung her head in shame and walked away.

Tug-o-war champs- Jd on the far right and meee on the far left :)


To cap our night we found this cool lil kebab & burger place still open coz we were starvinggg/thirsty by then, merrily ate and recapped/re-enacted the nights highlights.

i LOVE my sisters because no matter what we're doing, we always make it fun!:)

January 20, 2012 so sadly now marks the passing of one of music's most legendary pioneers of Soul, Rock and Roll and R'n'B. She was the epitome of soul, grit and truth in its purest musical form. She was Etta James. A voice that inspired me from a young age and sparked a re surge to be greater vocally, in my not too distant past. I love the honesty, cheek and rebel qualities her voice so effortlessly possess and am so sad to know that she is with us no more. Having said that, I am abundantly grateful that my ears have been blessed with her voice. Rest in love Jamesetta Hawkins.

we Mexicans say..."Wella!"

I don't really make "New Years" resolutions but with the closing of 2011 came my regret of not blogging more throughout my final year of college SO i decided that this will definitely take priority in my life this year.  I love memories and I've told myself that there is no neater place to keep them :)

To celebrate the coming of 2012 my sister & I took a baby road trip up the coast to meet my beautiful college sisters who greeted us with epic Mexican hats that we proceeded to wear for the rest of the afternoon and into the night (including a trip to the super market where I was greeting everyone in sight with a cheeful "hola" when my cousin decided to join in saying "WELLA" and we were all like...ummm, yeah no thats wrong! haha) before mine got lost! lol. we drank, took jello shots, played card games, turned "Bop-it" into a drinking game and basically talked smack all arvo before heading to the party we were invited to. We had a whole tub of jello shots that I tried (unsuccessfully) to sell on the train because everyone was either too shy or thought we were weirdos! haha ; had many funtimes with my ladies and here are just a few pics from the night!!

It was a hot day so I wanted to be comfy but bright so I wore this cotton, patterned over-sized tee from k-mart and a simple black tube skirt that I thought would be the most practical & cool after a few! lol.

We had the best time mingling & meeting new people, dancing like crazy monkeys, trying to console the random and totally stressed out dog that we found in the yard, looking for Blake & Jake, pointing fingers at the Leprechaun, dodging the creepy weirdo guy,  bathing in a tub with no water, breaking the swing set, reminding everyone that were not all Tongan lol. & making boss memories welcoming in 2012. I hope your New Years celebrations were filled with as much love, laughter &craziness as mine was!! If I have one piece of advice to leave ya'll with its doing everything with the ones you lurrrrrrrve- makes every moment a BAZILLION times better!! May 2012 bring many more happy memories, health and prosperity to us all :)

peace & love xo
