La La La...

So much has happened in the last month. With Easter just around the corner, even more stuff is gonna happen.

The folks were down, making both BH and I super duper busy, so busy we missed out on another friend coming here (sorry Shirlyn) and a friend who suffered a great loss. Anneh, really sorry, didn't know until just a few days ago.My heart goes out to you.

As for us, well, we finally got to go to church together yesterday, which was good. Good to be reminded of what Easter means, what church means, what Jesus means to us. Good to be reminded that we may be in a foreign country but yet there are people who hardly know us who pray for us. Good to know that God is always there, always in the know of whats going on. Good to know....

We also got to go marketing together. Strangely something I enjoy doing with company, either BH, Mum or Iben the terrible...most so with mum, whom I miss. I'm such a mummy's girl..heh.
Oh, and cook together..the chiken bak kut teh turned out very well, as did the stir fried bendi (okra).

But now it's Monday again..another long week to a go-go!

Here's hoping your week ahead is good.

Tassie...more pics

Tassie...also home of the Rock Lobster...
The Lenna of Hobart, our home for 4 days

Freycinet National Park...we climbed up to the Wineglass Bay lookout, a good 45 minute hike, to see the view of wineglass bay.

Click on the link to see what its supposed to look like, all we got was this AMAZING ONCE IN A LIFETIME, NOT MANY PEOPLE GET, VIEW...

Of fog, which came in just as we got to the lookout and covered the entire bay!!!!What's the likelihood of fog on a beautiful sunny day?
Artsy shot of fog from sunglass refelction..

All wasn't lost...we did chance upon a wild wallaby that decided to hop out and say hello.

Tassie was fun, the plane ride home was not. We flew into massive clouds on was scary, the plane dipped a few hundred feet a few times..not fun.
It was nice to be able to spend 2 weeks with the folks, but it was hard sending them home. For someone who has never been this far and this long apart from the parental units ever, it's not easy. I guess I'm lucky to have a special bond with my folks, but it makes separation difficult.I miss them and home.

For the benefit of Eric..better get this out of the way. Here's the cute keeper, who was holding the cute wombat in the last post. For the rest of us, 4 cute Tassie Devils in the den, which was BH's focus, hence the keeper being out of focus.

Fresh oysters..BH never had so digestive problems after either

Yeay! The Cadbury factory!!!!!!

The view from our artsy shot ler

5 months,photos,part 2

What's Australia without a trip to a Lavender Farm?

Must have a pic of food lar...Irish Lamb stew with Guiness, made by BH.

Our new time share pet..Mr. Tuxedo! Ok, is real name is Socks, but he responds to our name for him. He's actually a neigbour's cat, but he's adopted us, occasionally trying to sneak into our home..heh.

Satisfying my kudikaran husband's need for alcohol...a trip to the vineyards...and the cheese platter that comes with it!

And no Anneh, no mini BH's on the way. Been hiding my tummy cos I haven't been to the gym. Yea, I'll admit some weight gained, cis! But heck I can still fit under some bloody raintree ok, Gobi????

Nothing much

Since moving here 5 months ago, BH and I have slowly gotten used to the place and it's rather erratic weather. Occasionally pangs of homesickness hit, more so with me, wanting to go back to the way things were before.

Somedays I wish I never took this challenge. Right now, I could be happily blogging every other day, going to the gym everyday, doing nothing much at know, the life that seems more like a dream, only more boring?

But then, I took the red pill (or is it the blue). And here I am. Getting challenged every single darn day. Oh, have I mentioned the weather? One day it's 45, the nexy, 25..ah Melbourne
