Cherry Blossom Viewing

4th September 2019

Dear Chibi,

Can’t believe spring is officially here! P-chan can finally experience warmer weather :)

On Monday, Hubby and I took P-chan to Auburn Botanical Gardens to see the cherry blossoms. The Sydney Cherry Blossom Festival ended over a week ago which meant the busy crowds were mostly gone (thankfully). We attended 3 years ago, and the ticket prices have doubled since. I guess that’s what happens when events get too popular ^^”

We took a stroll around the gardens and managed to take some photos during the short time we were there. Our days are always planned around bub’s nap times and feeds. I think the photos turned out lovely :)

Today Hubby and I went to see the beautiful cherry blossoms blooming at the Auburn Botanical Gardens :D The Sydney Cherry Blossom Festival is an annual event but for some reason I always miss it! This time I marked it on my calendar so we wouldn’t forget :)

Credit goes to Hubby for all these amazing photos~

The Japanese Experience. Final

3rd March 2008

Dear Chibi,

I’ve reached Part 3 of the Japan Experience! There’s really only 2 more places I want to blog about, one being Tokyo’s Disneyland =) Previously I’ve only been to the one in Hong Kong and thought it was a bit small but still good. This one is MASSIVE. We spent a whole day there and still couldn’t get around to all 7 lands. There were a lot of people that day too and it wasn’t a weekend or any special day. According to the tour guide, it’s only 1/4 amount of the usual.


In total, we went on about 10 rides/shows which I thought were mostly very amusing. I loved Fantasyland..Peter Pan’s Flight was magical! OMG I feel like I’m in a dream- flying over London’s night city on a boat. I can’t put any rides properly into words.. you just have to experience it for yourself! It’s also hard (or impossible) to take pictures while on the rides too.


Snow White & Prince Charming, Sleeping Beauty & Prince Charming, Bell and..Prince Charming XD I think they have names @.@ lol.

I loved all the princesses anyway, so preeetty @.@
