The day finally came and I woke up bright and early before the show started so that I can get me some tickets to see his live demonstration.
There were already hordes of people there and I was worried about not being able to get any tickets. Thankfully, after some minor mishaps with the ticket lady (she over charged me!), I finally got some tickets and M and I proceeded to enter the show. As our tickets were for his 3.30pm show, we planned to check out as much as we can (i.e. eat and drink) before his live demonstration.
M kept saying that we shouldn't wait till after his show to go for the book signing. So we headed off looking for the book signing area. We were going round and round and not sure where to go until I suddenly spied this.
M and I eagerly waited in line.
Sigh....I never had any luck with book signing sessions or when I attended my one and only celebrity signing session!
M and I were famished after that and we headed off to get some lunch. For the rest of the day, we came across some interesting stalls and food.
This stall was quite interesting. You place this sachet in the fridge and it helps to keep your veges and fruits lasts longer. I had to buy one and try.
I had a great time and we only left at closing time. I seriously doubt 1 day is enough as we spent that just going through stalls and celebrity demonstrations. We didn't even get to go for any of the other food demonstrations.
Do check out my food blog for all the food and drink pictures!

Finally I was at the side of the Apple store with only about 50 people ahead of me. It started to drizzle. Ooh! I need to get in.
Finally got in. The first 2,400 patrons get a free T-shirt. Yippee....I was one of the first 2,400 people.
The first level are all the computers and peripherals. You get to the second level and you are greeted with an array of all the ipods and media accessories.
As the whole place has an open theme with glass walls, you could still see the queue waiting to get in at the entrance.
Anyone interested in pink laptop covers?
Up the amazing stairs to Level 3 and you get to the service/genius centre.
Anyone interested in some lab workshops?
The signature Apple logo hanging in the middle of the store.
The the people who are still queueing to get in, the Apple staff were kind enough to start handing out Apple umbrellas so that they don't get wet.
I love the umbrella. Simple and just the logo. This is one umbrella that I am happy to help flaunt and advertise.
Were you one of the lucky few to get an umbrella?

I can't wait for the Good Food and Wine Show which starts on Friday. After being in Sydney for so many years and always being a no-show. What better excuse than to go this year as Gordon Ramsay will be there.
Needless to say, I am a huge fan!

Jay Chou is the spokes person for it and my new baby has his signature on it. Teehee!

The skin was so bumpy and red and really inflamed! This is a result of too much alcohol, I used to get rashes when I first started drinking as a teen. I needed to get to a pharmacy during lunchtime to get me some anti-histamine.
It's already been 5 days and it is only slowly subsiding. The only thing that I can use is Aloe Vera.
That's it, no more drinking for me for a while. It was so not worth it, I would have felt a bit better if the rashes was just on my body and not my entire FACE!
Considering that my resolve was not to drink as well but I decided what the heck! Now, I need more resolve then ever and is the perfect reason for my friends not to force me to drink next time.

Friday night came and even before we left the city, we had a few crazy moments. Let's just say it was along the lines of switching drivers while at the red lights and passing a map to the car behind us while at another set of red light.
It didn't help that I gulped down my drink at the bar straight before we started our journey there and needless to say, I needed to visit the toilet about 30 minutes in.
We finally arrived and the house was fantastic! Thanks V. It was located at Manyana which was past Jervis Bay down South of Sydney.
Most of us decided that it was time to get some rest before the crazy activities are to start. I slept on this and it was just sooo comfortable.
I was soo tired when it was past midnight, not to mention the amount of alcohol in me that it was time for bed. T and I lit a candle in our sleeping area and chatted the night away.
No breakfast yet and it was already time for more drinks. My group of friends sure are drinkers.
It was so good to getaway and have some stress release. Great friends and company.
