Nikon D90 | AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED | ISO320 | f/4 | 2.0s Before food, presents, alcohol and general festivity celebrations get in the way, I’d like to use this post to wish you all a lovely Christmas 2012! Give extra long hugs your loved ones , and be grateful of the abundant love you have around you this year. To my loyal readers (especially!), thank you for all your support throughout the year. I honestly didn’t think […]
Summer holiday is officially started. Today was Mr 8’s last day of school. Also, it was his last day in this school. He is going to a new school starting next year. So yeah, it was kind of big deal. The school had this farewell ‘bang’ at the end of the day to say goodbye to all the Year 6 graduates and those others who will not come back next year. A lot of chanting, screaming, banging and clapping. […]
My little elf was very helpful and looking very happy in our last day of baking. I love baking, so these pre-Christmas baking days are one of my favourite days in the year. The house smells wonderful with the smell of cookies baking in the oven, and I truly enjoyed listening to the non-stop chatters of my little girl, who broke into Christmas songs every now and then while she dusted the cookies with sugar. My mom did a lot […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO500 | f/3.5 | 1/40 | Christmas is around the corner. More ribbons, cards, and wrapping papers are inevitable despite the notion (that we adults keep telling our kids) that Christmas is NOT about presents. It is the giving that can be a bit addictive, I suppose. The joy of creating joy. And that, my friends, with many ugly things happening around the world, is something we need to be grateful for this […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED | ISO500 | f/5.6 | 1/100| This is Whiskey. He is a super duper active 2-year-old dog. He was surrounded and totally spoiled with treats by a bunch of kids today, maybe that’s why he looked so happy. I’m so glad to see that other dog finding it hard to stay clean. Like my dog. Whiskey here was covered in cob/spider web all over his face and body, with some dried […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO400 | f/5 | 1/800 | These cute little things are Christmas soaps! Ms 4 received them from her BFF who, with his mom, made these themselves using melt and pour soap and some colours. That bit of glitter on the yellow one was added especially for her. Nice touch, don’t you think? It’s not Christmas without sparkles..!
The Mulley Street Yarn-a-thon was today. I’ve written about this event in a post back in August, at the beginning of it. Some of people from the local community, the students of schools involved in the project, even the ACT Chief Minister were there. The gathering was to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the big and horrible bush fire of 2003 in Canberra. The trees and the close surrounding area were, as promised and intended, ‘bombed’with yarns. It’s quite an […]

Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO160 | f/2.8 | 1/6| There is something about twinkling lights that just draw you in. Or maybe that’s just me. And moths.
