Sip my Ocean

Recently saw an exquisite exhibition by Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney. Called Sip my Ocean, it’s on until the 18 February 2018. It’s worth a look if you are in the neighbourhood. The image is of the work, Pixelwald (Pixel Forest) (2016). It imagines the tiny pixels from […]

Gone to the beach

I cherish these long, hot summer days when most of Sydney seem to be on holidays. It’s when my little family bundles into the car and takes off to the beach. From gentle Balmoral to Dee Why where the surf is stronger, each beach in Sydney seem to have its own personality. It’s been a […]

A journey to Christmas

It’s here! It’s the day our son rips open presents and we gorge ourselves on food; the day we see and celebrate all that is good in the world. It’s a time to focus on hope and joy with family and friends; on extending kindness to others. For our little family, Christmas has a special […]

2017 Favourite

Got to love that blue Australian sky. So much happened under it in 2017. When I feel overwhelmed by worries, petty or significant, I like to look up. It helps me realise I am small and the world so much greater. That somewhere under that sky, there are other people with problems and others who […]

The art of letting go

We are too prone to engrave our trials in marble and write our blessings in sand. – C. H. Spurgeon I wish I knew how to do it easily. I wish it didn’t take up so much time and effort to set aside and move on. Perhaps the 19th century Baptist preacher was correct. Perhaps […]

Fireworks ascending and bursting at the Australia Day celebrations in Darling Harbour, Sydney a few years ago. 26 January. It’s a day that is supposed to celebrate modern Australia — a vibrant multicultural country that has become what it is today from the arrival of the First Fleet in Botany Bay. But it is also […]

The Sirius

There is a building in Sydney within walking distance from the bridge and in the heart of the famous harbour. It was designed by architect Tao Gofers and built in the 1980s as public housing for the working class residents in the area. Called the Sirius building, it comprised 79 apartments ranging from one to […]

Cheeky

Found while wandering the streets of New York last year. I was about to walk past the graffiti, completely oblivious to my surroundings. It was my husband who pointed it out. The image was taken on my phone and edited with Hipstamatic. Via the Daily Post Photo Challenge: Cheeky

I prefer these shoes, thank you.

Before I knew of a place called Australia, before I could speak English fluently and when Korean was my most used language, my parents took us on a world tour. It must have been 1981, because we were there in London, amidst the waving crowd as the newly married Prince and Princess of Wales passed […]
