As we were sitting in the car for the light to go green (still in Sydney) I noticed the beautiful St Mary Cathedral sprawled right in front of us. We’ve passed it many times this afternoon trying (unsuccessfully) to find a free parking spot in the city, but this time our car was stoping right in front of it thanks to the red light, and we were facing the cathedral without any obstacle. The sun was in its perfect position. […]
Again we were woken up by the sound of rain this morning in Sydney. This week just reminded me of the wet week in Canberra a couple of months back. So wet. So long. But this morning I was very lucky. I had not one, but two very colourful visitors at my window! The Lorikeets! To lighten the room a little bit I thought it’d best to open the blinds really wide. As I opened it, one bird flew and hopped onto […]
I don’t get my kids’ excitement over playgrounds.I understand that playing at the playground is mighty fun and all, and I love to see them active in the playground (all that jumping, swinging, climbing, spinning etc) but really, aren’t they like waterfalls? You see one you’ve seen them all? I don’t have any childhood memories of being super excited about a playground. Not in my home town (maybe back in the day it was non existent), nor when we went […]
Mentally, even as I woke up I knew that I was in Sydney (other times it took me awhile to realise where I was). But, clearly I wasn’t that awake yet so I was shocked when I was looking at the weather for today and it said 7 degrees, slightly cloudy and foggy in the morning. I was like “Whaaaatttt??!!!” Then I realised. It was Canberra weather. Tapped Sydney, read 18 degrees and sunny, then I exhaled…phew. It was a […]
One day in January we went to the Art of the Bricks exhibition. It was an exhibition of Lego sculptures by Nathan Sawaya as a treat for my son as part of his birthday presents. Everything that the guy made was amazing, the exhibition was very inspiring. This hanging guy was my favourite. I hope my photo could do it justice.
Skulls by Nathan Samayan. It was a great Lego fun for us in the afternoon at the Lego exhibition ‘the art if the bricks‘ in Sydney. An hour long walking around the amazing sculptures by Nathan Samayan followed by 45 minutes free play Lego for some Lego building challenges. The boys (hubby, son & Phil) won both challenges, to build the tallest tower and a car that can roll the furthest (released from a ramp). They were all pretty psyched […]
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!
Time was almost running out. The day was almost over and I haven’t taken any photo for today’s post. I know before I decided to commit to this 365 project that some days are going to be harder than others. Just didn’t realize that the time is here even before January ends. So, this was what the traffic looked like as we entered Sydney tonight. It’s been raining non stop since we left Canberra, and apparently it’s going to be […]
photos taken Dec 2010 Another first in my relationship with photography, I learned to take photos at night time. With a photog friend in tow barking instructions, I cranked up the ISO, turned the speed low and learned how to breath in, press the shutter, hold my breath and breath out when it’s done. It was a pleasant experience, I really enjoyed this night outting. Need to do more of this. The incredible lights! Oh my. They just illuminate.. Out […]
See the full gallery on Posterous This one city slicker was just cruisin’ along on the water right below us, which was just off the dock at the Sydney Fish Market. It was a busy day, both people and seaguls* were fighting for various seafood to eat behind me. But none of that mattered to this bird who was clearly chillin’ and enjoying the glorious sun. *Seaguls (a.k.a) sea rats in Sydney’s Fish Market are notoriously aggresive. They even tried […]
