Portraits of family in the ‘wild’. This was our first camping since last summer (January 2014), so it’s been awhile; and it seemed that everyone was missing it. The time spent outdoor was enjoyed to the max. Dog especially loved to bask in the morning light.

Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO800 | f/3.2 | 1/20 | A lamington is a dessert of Australian origin. It consists of squares of sponge cake coated first in a layer of traditionally chocolate icing, then in desiccated coconut. (source: Wikipedia) Baking Friday is here again. Lamington is one of my family’s favourites, and it’s been quite awhile since the last time I made these babies. As I expected, once my kids found out what I was doing, they came and circling close to […]
I read somewhere that the best way to blog is to blog what you know. Today’s post is the total opposite of that, so yeah, I’d understand if you want to leave this page straight away. Let’s start with the flower in the photo. I did not know what flower it was. At the supermarket I saw them next to the check-out counter and they were on sale, and believe it or not I’ve never seen this type of flowers […]
Today was the last day of school holiday in Canberra. It’s a typical Sunday in the suburb. We drove around a nearby suburb looking for a fast food restaurant for a quick take-away. Too tired to cook, and couldn’t be bothered with more nutritious choice. Good thing I bothered to look up to see this sunset sky, otherwise we will suffer another book cover pattern shot.
How lovely it was to be back home and found that most of the green trees have changed colours. Someone told me that the reason most of the trees in Canberra are changing colours in autumn is because they are not native Australian trees. These trees were imported from Europe, and Australian trees don’t change colours. I don’t know whether that’s true, I might google it at a later date, but one thing for sure, I LOVE it. I’m grateful […]
Ranges of planes big and small, old and new, were parked at the airport runway and open for public to see this Sunday morning. The event was Canberra Airport Open Day. We were allowed to go up in most of these planes, but the lines were soooo long we ended up just walking around the runway. We caught an air show where the daredevil pilot was doing crazy acrobatic stunts that made me dizzy even from watching. It was a […]
What do you know. Cycling to school from my house is actually very ‘doable’.We don’t even have to hit the road, it’s almost cycle path the whole way. I’m afraid Mr 8 taking too much liking to this (hopefully) one-off new way of going to school that he wants to cycle to school everyday. I know it is a common thing, and a good thing actually, to ride to school every day. But I grew up in a city where […]
There was nothing better than having an iced dark chocolate at Lindt cafe to recharge yourself in this sticky, wet, hot and cloudy day in Sydney. Happy Australia day, good people of Australia!
