We seem to have a knack for going to the beach on the wrong days. Previously we went to St Kilda when it was way too cold. And this time, it was way too hot. 34 degrees hot. Though sometimes we do wonder if we were being typical Asians, because the ang mohs were all enjoying the sun.
Well, actually it was less than a day. Just about two hours to be exact.
It was my sister-in-law’s last day in Melbourne and we didn’t want to spend the day at home, so we decided to pay St Kilda a visit! Even though it was 13 degrees… brrr. And the wind at St Kilda was icy cold! I seriously had brain freeze after being slapped by the wind for that two hours.
Guess what? We went back to the Royal Botanic Gardens last Sunday!
Our friends were away for the weekend and lent us their car, so we thought, why not go to the city again! And the hubby wanted to do a picnic, so we cooked spaghetti bolognese, bundled everything and everyone, and off we went.
One of the things that excite us about Melbourne is the outdoor life. Even before we moved here, the hubby and I were talking about going to Melbourne parks every other weekend. So last weekend, we made a visit to the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, specifically for the Ian Potter Foundation Children’s Garden.
As we are all new to winter and cold weather, I am constantly thinking about how to keep my kids warm and at the same time how not to overheat them. My mind is constantly planning how to dress them – how many layers, which material, which jacket, when to remove the layers, how to prepare them for the night, etc.
