If you’ve been reading my blog long enough, you’d know that I love New York. I’ve been there twice, and once I even thought of moving there. So when Sofitel Melbourne On Collins invited me to their ‘Modern New Yorker Lunch’, I was like, yesssss I’ll be thereeeeee.
It’s autumn in Australia! This is my first time ever experiencing autumn, and I’d been looking forward to it. I wanted to see the beautiful leaves and feel the cool breeze. I also think I have a special fondness for autumn because my Chinese name has ‘autumn’ in it. Seriously. If I were a character in a Chinese movie, I would be called “Little Wise Autumn”.
I strapped Alistair on me, grabbed my bag, did a last check at the mirror, said bye to Amy and the babysitter, and walked out of the door to go catch the train to the city. The moment I stepped out of the house though, I knew I made two mistakes: firstly, my jacket was way too warm for the weather. Secondly, I shouldn’t have worn these new shoes.
We finally made a trip to Mornington Peninsula, after talking about it forever. Actually, we almost didn’t make it again, because the hubby and I were not feeling very well, but I’m so glad we did, because it was so so so beautiful!
Hello all! Hope you guys have been enjoying Christmas and the year-end holidays. Well, I turned another year *ahem* wiser last week. I find it pretty cool that Boxing Day is a public holiday in Australia, which means that my birthday will be a holiday forever muahaha! And, as it was my first birthday in Australia, what better way to celebrate than to spend the day with Australian animals?
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.
