First, we arrived in Hong Kong after a 15 hours flight. During the flight, I have my 1 and a half year old sitting and sleeping on my lap most of the time. I thought I was going to lose my legs! LOL Then, we flew to Australia after 1 day. Another 9 hours flight while we were still having jet lag! See how much fun we’re having already? Anyhow, we arrived safe and sound, and blood is still flowing to my legs!
The main purpose to visit Australia was to visit my Grandmother, my Aunts and Uncles. Finally, the kids got to meet their Great Grandma, Grand Aunts and Grand Uncles for the very first time! Although our stay was rather short, we had the most amazing time together. We shared, we talked, we laughed; it was wonderful and heart warming. It was nice to see my cousin after all these years too. Now, she’s all grown up and a mother of two as well. Boy, time flies!
I just want to take this opportunity to thank my Aunt and Uncle again for their hospitality. Thank you for preparing everything for our stay and letting us make a mess at your house (I swear it was my husband, not the kids)! We had the most wonderful time there.
The picture above was taken at my Aunt’s backyard. A beautiful Chayote that she planted. I think it’s time to harvest!
Picture above is an 80+ year old parrot, aka my Uncle’s girlfriend. My husband gave her the nick name “ViewSonic”! Like all women, she talks a lot! Isn’t she beautiful?
When we were in Australia, we visited the Easter Show in the Olympic Stadium. The Easter Show comprises of an agricultural show, an amusement park and a fair that showcased livestock and produce. This comprehensive fair has many competitions including arts and crafts, photography and cookery, as well as tests of strength and skill such as wood chopping. The Show also has shopping, restaurants, commercial stands and exhibits, a horticultural display, and a national accredited conformation dog show and cat show.
Pictures above and below are food venders exhibits. Many of them were giving out samples too. :P Yum…
The pictures above and below are the agricultural displays from different districts. These displays are made out of fresh produces! Aren’t they amazing? I was so amazed at the craftsmanship and artistic talents of those who created these masterpieces.
We sampled some wine, cheese, bread, and desserts. Then, we headed to the seafood vender and ordered a dozen of oysters and called that lunch.
The Easter Show was huge and we didn’t even have enough time to visit all the exhibits. It was a wonderful experience.
Australia is a beautiful country and we wished we could spend more time exploring Sydney and the surrounding cities. Well, maybe next time... in the near future. Goodbye Australia! We’ll miss you.
Up next I will post our experiences in Macau, stay tuned. Thank you for stopping by today and hope to see you again soon.
