And, on the other note of my days in Canberra... Looking at we are moving soon, we are on our wheels in most of the weekends haa.. going around Canberra and near by. We have visited War Memorial Museum, it is a must see if you are in Canberra, it is not of what we have expected. The entrance water feature reminds me of Taj Mahal.

love the public arts features ...

A few weekends ago, we had been up to Corin Forest, but too bad we chose the wrong day with no snow, my colleague has been up there with snow .. where they have throwing snow balls and making snow man... too bad till now I haven't experienced any snow. There were a 10 mins snow last week in the city but Eng and I have missed that in work .. :(  ... 

See the frozen lake at Corin Forest .. and there is a cozy little cafe that you could have bbq marshmallow over fire place in the cafe.

Cherry Blossom and Spring is Here

You must have been noticing that my blog post is like getting all the activities of many many weeks squeezed into one post. I have to apologize for being slagging a bit lately with the online presence. I might have too occupied with the activities happening lately and have been busy with experimenting in cooking. I promise to share more cooking experiment soon once things get more organized. 

The chapter in Canberra is almost over, we are heading to Geelong real soon. Sometime in September ... A New Start in Spring. 

A new chapter is soon to reveal itself. 

Live my life to the fullest at least it should satisfy myself and be grateful  :) 

Cheers Mate!
