A bad night's sleep..but woke up to a lovely surprise.

I slept so terribly last night! My sleep cycle has been completely ruined since the Christmas weekend, when I decided to stay up till 4am playing video games. Now all week I haven't been able to fall asleep until around that time...not nice. :(

I was on the internet researching digital cameras last night, as I really want to buy a new one so I can take some nice photos during new years eve. I've been using my iPhone 4 camera lately, and although I've taken some really awesome photos with it during the day, it performs really badly in low light. I gave my last digital camera away, so now it's time to buy a new one!

So I was researching cameras, just to kill time and wait until I felt sleepy. I finally fell asleep around 4.30am but I kept waking up every few minutes. I have no idea why I was having such a hard time sleeping. Then, the next thing I remember is waking up screaming...Seb was next to me, so I really gave him a scare and he immediately woke up, hugged me and asked me if I was okay. I honestly don't know what I had been dreaming, but I remember feeling incredibly scared when I woke up. I have no idea why I was so scared, but I was. Plus, the fact that I had just woken up to the sound of my own piercing screech totally freaked me out. I remember feeling like bees were attacking me or something...so weird. It sounds kinda funny now that I write this, but I was genuinely freaked out at the time and I hugged Seb so tight, I think I nearly suffocated him lol. So yeah, I slept like crap last night and felt really miserable, but I was pleasantly surprised this morning!

A package arrived for me in the mail! It came with a letter inside, and a gift:

A Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Necklace?! No, it's actually the Final Fantasy XII Save Crystal Necklace. :)

You guys know of my love for Final Fantasy so my immediate reaction was: YAYYYYYYY! Hehe, I was very happy with my gift and it immediately cheered me up! It was from my good friend Akmal, and the letter he included gave me a good laugh too!

In the letter, he introduced himself as "Xiang Lau Lee Loh" from the "Zung Tau" province in northern China. He wrote that he had recently viewed my YouTube videos, and was thoroughly impressed and wanted me to wear and promote his cosplay accessories.

LOL! I had just woken up and was half asleep when I read this, so half way through the letter I was like: WTF? Wait a minute...how did some random dude from China get my home address!? HAHA, so funny. He then revealed his real identity at the end of the letter and ended it with: 'Only joking love you lots'. Awww he's so silly. Very sweet. It's my belated Christmas present from him.

So to end this post, here are two quick photos I took today, wearing my new necklace!

(Akmal if you're reading this - you're a silly butt, but love you too dude!) xD

Haha, chat to you guys soon in my next post!
