Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO200 | f/4.5 | 1/250 | Day number 333 of 2012 was definitely one of the hottest day in Canberra to date. It’s scary to think it can go hotter, way hotter. The past two summers were ‘fake’, as in not hot at all (cold even), and very very wet, so it came as a shock to the system a bit to experience this kind of heat today. I could go as […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO400 | f/2.2 | 1/100 | Showers and thunderstorms are what in store for us today at the Nation’s Capital. My strawberry patch and the rest of my green family in the garden are so enjoying this lengthy wet treatment.

These two were seen chilling out under the shades, well protected from the heat of today. The male peacock (top) was more restless than the female one, but they were hanging out not a meter away from each other. Sweet. This post is […]
To be an impromptu tour guide is an inevitable role when a friend comes from abroad to visit. I was playing that role for my friend earlier this week. I think it is good for us, who live in the visited town, to embrace this role every now and then. I went to places I haven’t been before even after all these years (I thought the inside of the Old Parliament House was quite interesting). At the Cockington Green Garden, […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED | ISO160 | f/16 | 1/160 | I haven’t seen a wonderful cloud formation like today for a long time. I was so psyched I was out to capture it. Today was a brilliant sunny day in Canberra. These images were taken at the Ferry Terminal, Acton Park. Nikon D90 | AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED | ISO160 | f/16 | 1/200 |
Today is the first of November, which means that Movember is BACK. This is a global event to create awareness of men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health, and involves men to grow their moustache for the whole month-long. Hubby has decided to do it this month, but since it’s only the first day for him taking a break from his razor, I thought it’s more fun to share the photo of these lovely moustached ladies from A Bite […]
I considered myself lucky that I happened to be in the neighborhood when I passed this ‘gathering’ of artistic people this morning. I was huffin’ and puffin’ towards the end of my morning run when I passed these students. These arts students from ANU were doing their art project called ‘Visions and Perspective’. This was only for the day. They had to take everything off by 3PM today. Some worked in groups some worked individually, but they all were busy […]

It’s very windy and pollen-full today in Canberra. I wasn’t sure how much of it I accidentally inhaled during my morning run. Almost like light snow these things were everywhere, floating and flying around in the air. The ground looked messy white, covered with pollen. I feel for those who has allergies or asthma, this can’t be good for them. Here’s a look of the fluff that landed on the ground.
Today was a very wet Saturday in Canberra. The rain started from early morning all through the day and I suspected a soft drizzle even now as I was writing this post after the kids have gone to bed. Droplets were everywhere. The greens were greener. Most colours saved white have gone darker. Richer. All the plants got drenched. Some droplets on the leaves looked like sparkling gems, very pretty. These images were my capture of the wet world around […]

Tonight we had so much fun at 2012 Floriade NightFest. Yes it was cold, and yes there were (still) flowers everywhere. But there was so much lights everywhere too. It was such a different experience, we had a really lovely time. The cold reminded us a bit of Christmas night market in Cologne minus the glühwein. I love the ‘carnival’ feel to it in particular. The giant ferris wheel, the slides, the various ‘fun’ rides, and live performances, it made the […]
