It was yum! For Debbie’s Six Word Saturday.
I was asked to attend a Civic Leaders meeting recently for a colleague who could not make it. It was in Auburn and held after hours. I could not get someone to look after my son in time. I left early to pick him up and he came with me. It was an important meeting. […]
It seems like the practice of making a wish on a dandelion was around since the 1800s. Young women believed that if all the seeds flew away after they blew on it, the object of their affections will return their feelings. If seeds remained, that’s it. They either had second thoughts, or didn’t even think […]
The Temple of Heaven in Beijing was completed in 1420. It has survived many troubled times and is standing today. It became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998. It was the place where my purse was stolen, and it was the place where, more remarkably, the police found it again. Via the Daily Post […]
Elin Ersson. Her story came up on my social media feed last week. Major news networks picked up her live-stream video protest and blasted it across cyberspace. By now it has travelled the globe and been viewed by thousands of people. She is a student at Gothenburg University, Sweden. On Monday, 23 July she boarded a plane […]
This is one of my favourite early morning walk captures. It’s a surf boat being pushed out to sea by surf lifesavers honing their skills. Australian beaches can be dangerous for novice swimmers and for those who don’t follow a few simple rules, like swimming between the flags. The surf can be rough at times […]
Called 1,000 Cranes, this installation is by artists Ambient & Co. It was inspired by a Japanese legend that states 1,000 paper cranes in the home will bring happiness and eternal good luck. The cranes light up as visitors move through the space. As the crowd grows, the number of lit cranes also grow until […]
A kiss on the hand may be quite continental But diamonds are a girl’s best friend A kiss may be grand… but it won’t pay the rental on your humble flat Or help you at the automat Men grow cold as girls grow old And we all lose our charms in the end But square […]
Him: My friends and I have just started reading Lord of the Rings. Me: Really? You don’t find it too hard? H: Nah. It has old words like thus and nay and stuff. But that’s ok. M: what do you like about it? H: It looks really cool in my imagination. He had difficulties with […]
Via the Daily Post Photo Challenge #7: Ocean
It was a beautiful morning. It was the first official day of the school break and I was also on leave from work. The sun was up and the sky was blue. I wanted to get out of the house and explore the city. But I think my husband and son needed a bit of […]
Giant clouds at Dee Why beach on a morning walk one weekend. The image was taken on the phone and edited using Hipstamatic. For Debbie’s Six Word Saturday!
In the last month of spring you will see jacaranda trees bursting with lilac flowers along Sydney streets. My husband calls them a weed because they’re not native to the country. But I don’t care. I think they’re beautiful. The trees mean a lot to me. Especially because they came here from other parts of […]
