Law Ball, Dates and Misc

Greetings friends!

Three weeks ago my events team on the QUTLS hosted the Annual QUT Law Ball. It was held at Cloudland and the theme was Carnival(e). I think it was the best ball I'd ever been to (aside from super sore feet and being quite tired) but I might be a little biased hehe.

We hired four rooms and transformed them into the following: the Rainbow Room which was the main ballroom with Brazilian dancers and dummers, a Rave Cave which was a completely dark room with hundreds of white balloons and a UV light, a champagne room with an ice sculpture (there was supposed to be a champagne fountain but when it arrived it was already broken :( ) and a photo room with a photo booth and photographers!


I bought my dress from ASOS but when it arrived..... let's just say I looked like I drowned in a sparkly blanket. After a LOT of altering by my mum, I finally got it to how I wanted it.

Before and after - thanks Mama Nguyen :3

Poor Clauds had to sleep on her chest with her bare back exposed overnight without a blanket just to get this henna nice.

Both of our dresses were from ASOS!

Phi and Jinwook thought it would be funny to jump just before the elevator stopped and we got stuck. Being claustrophobic and trapped in an elevator isn't the best thing :P

Kimmy also mailed me a fisheye lens he bought online so I could have one in time for the ball :3

Saturday nights are date night for Kimmy and I and I was craving Italian in particular. Courtney found out the other day that Spaghetti House hadn't actually closed down but moved to Southbank so Nooks and I decided to dine there! 

Pork and veal meatballs in tomato sauce

Slow cooked lamb shoulder ragu with papardelle | Orecchiette with pork & fennel sausage, tomato, wine and cream

The "please don't kill me" face

Kimmy has started this thing where he buys me celebratory novelty balloons.
 The dinosaur for my advocacy results which he gave me on the day of the ball and the sausage dog for my new job!

Our date night the next Saturday after, we visited the Bourbon Street Bar because we were feeling like something American. 

 The lighting inside was too terrible to take food photos but we ordered the buttermilk fried chicken and beef brisket with mac and cheese and collared greens. Beef brisket was definitely worth it but we were iffy about the chicken because all we could do was compare it to KFC chicken... *foodiefail* whoops.

Afterwards we went to visit the Southbank markets before going to bowl at Strike. They check ID's and stamp your hand for entry now! Bought a jam jar and apparently the more I drink, the more coordinated I become. If only that were really true, though.

Finally, the most recent date day was yesterday! Jinwook once took me to a park where he spent most of his childhood so I did the same and took him to Lake Samsonvale, North Pine Dam in Petrie! I knew the BBQ area was quite far away from the lake so we both planned to build our own BBQ to eat lake-side. All in all, a great day was had although time flew by way too quickly.

Pro tip: Don't wear white shorts in the great outdoors. I tripped over and fell on my bottom into a plate of pork belly strips and had to walk around the whole day looking like I had shat my pants HAHAAH fml :(

We were actually terrified of accidentally starting a bush fire when we started the fire but we doused the surrounding areas with water and ensured we had water on hand in case anything happened.


We left in the afternoon and drove around Petrie for a bit before going bowling (recurring motif in this relationship) at AMF Kedron where Jinwook whooped my ass twice T_T.

Miscellaneous:
 Law Dinner planning with Uday and Sam

Queensland Legal Walk (QPILCH Walk for Justice) with the Society followed by an awesome and too-big of a big breakfast at Brisbane Cafe.

I have started painting in my journal.

Jinwook came up to visit one night.

Had a day off uni and made mussels in spicy tomato sauce

Cooked some chicken parmigiana in baked crusty rolls mmmm

QUT's Aromas Cafe have finally got their soup of the day's up and running for winter. Seriously guise it is only $7 and well worth it. Clauds and I survived off these last winter and they are to die for!

That is all I have for ya'll. Hope everyone is doing well and I'll be back to update very soon.

Love, Sarah x.
