Australian Open - Tennis!

Today was my very first time going to the Australian Open!! The funny thing is I'm born in Melbourne and it has taken me 27yrs to finally go lol OMG I been missing out all those years!!! I have always thought because I'm not into the whole sports thing so there's no point in me going (thinking i'll be bored outta my brains while im there). I spent almost the whole day there from 12ish til 8, and I was not bored even once.

The Dove Marquee - They offered everyone 5 min hand massages, explain products to all of us and best of all the freebies! Look at the below pic of what I picked up, full size deodorants!!! They were giving out two per person!!! The rest is moisturiser, cleansing soap and hair treatment. Very nice girls working in there. 
 Our very first game we watched, I forgot their names already but these two girls won the match. 
We watched a few more games but I don't remember their names either lol What good am I? Anyway, I got hungry and we had Chicken strips & chips for dinner! Healthy huh? The chicken was like fake chicken meat? When I say fake, I mean seriously processed meat doesn't even have the chicken taste or texture anymore. For $9.50 I won't complain AS MUCH...

  We got to watch the match Mikkhail Kukushkin vs. Gael Monfils. I tell ya it was an intense match, after the second set I was so sure Monfils will lose. Then by 3rd and 4th set, Monfils caught up I was like omg he's going to win!!! 5th set, Kukushkin took it! =( I was so disappointed, I really wanted Monfils to win. The ass sitting in front of me kept leaning back, his back was touching my knees ewww...lucky it only touched my knee once otherwise I would have set him straight.
After the match, it got kinda cold and seriously windy so we decided to head home. Stopped by 7 11 near the train station and got a slurpee. Excuse my manly hands, I did try to hide it.

Thanks for reading!!!


  1. That's so cool that you went! I've never been to a sporting event hehe. I'm glad you had a great time, and omg those freebies look awesome!
    To answer your Bellabox Q, I do find that I use most of the products, and the ones I don't use I can pass on to family or friends who are better suited to it :) it's really fun for only $15 a month and you can cancel whenever you want so you aren't stuck in :) xx

  10. This is soooo GREAT. I always watch Australian Open on TV and enjoy good tennis and sunny weather /during our winter/ ;)

  11. I went this year as well (I'm from Sydney). I'm an absolute tennis fanatic so it literally was a dream of mine, but like you, it took me forever to actually attend (23 years :p). Glad to hear you really enjoyed your experience. I never got to get those Dove freebies - the massive line each time I passed by the booth really deterred me.
