Dear Chibi,

Cherry Blossom Photobooth by Madman

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~

Photo shoot @ Auburn Botanical Gardens

15th December 2013

Dear Chibi,

It’s been a while since our last photo shoot, so yesterday Jacky and I headed to the Japanese Garden for a small session. We were also here for our Cosplay shoot earlier this year, so some backdrops may look familiar to you ;) We like coming here since it’s so close to home and it has some really amazing views. Couples love to come here for their wedding photos~ I wonder where I’ll have mine?…hmm! ^^

Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park

11th August 2013

Dear Chibi,

Yesterday our family went on a little day trip up north to visit the ‘Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park’ in Calga. We grabbed a deal at Groupon so entry tickets were only $9.25 for an adult as oppose to $25. One of our distant cousins from overseas is staying here with us in Sydney, so this visit was more for him but we also enjoyed it ourselves.

For me, the highlight of the day was seeing the little joey sitting inside its mother’s pouch >v< It’s suuuuper adorable! Oh, and the Koala too. The Koala is so precious :3

Whilst there was a nice range of animals to see, it was a bit lacking in the quantity department. The animals looked kinda lonely being the only one in the cages half the time.  The area was also quite small so we saw everything rather quickly. We also went on a bush walking trail, but it wasn’t very long or challenging. The lookout was…okay. XDDD. I expected a nice view of the bush, except we saw the highway ^^”

Overall, I think it was a nice relaxing day :D We don’t really do much as a family anymore.

Well, enough of the talking. Let’s check out some photos shall we? ;)

Vivid Sydney

7th June 2013

Dear Chibi,

Last night Jacky and I grabbed ourselves a yummy Grill’d burger before heading over to Darling Harbour to check out this year’s Vivid Sydney Lights display! Most people have probably checked it out by now, but if you haven’t it’s still showing until Monday June 10th :)

Here are some low quality but decent-enough-to-keep-Chibi-happy photos she snapped with her phone :)

We arrived just in time for the 7pm water work and fireworks display. It was packed with people and the show lasted for about 12 minutes.
