standing in the rain

Rained heavily yesterday. I stood in a sheltered spot (since I didnt’ have an umbrella), waiting for the traffic lights to show the green man.

There were about 20+ppl standing in the rain, with their umbrellas, patiently waiting as well.
We waited

and waited.

Different sets of lights turned green and red.

and waited.

aha. it should be us next!

The lights changed, and the red man was still shining. Finally, one of the ppl in the crowded lot decides that maybe, just maybe, he should press the button to cross.

Outwitted by a mozzie

A mozzie terrorized me last night in my sleep. She attacked my fingers, feet and knees throughout the night mercilessly. Never once, did she come close to my ear, which is the typical attack strategy of her fellow clan.
This is one smart mozzie.

Around 2am, I got up to see what I could do. I saw her. She was resting at the end of the bed on the wall.
Perfect opportunity to sneak up and WHACK!

As I sneaked forward, she sensed my approach.
Off she flew…

But, unlike her fellow clan members, she did not fly up.
She did not fly left.
She did not fly right.
She also did not drop down.

She flew straight for me!

I was so bewildered and surprised that I didn’t know what to do and she got away, and hid somewhere in the room.
Sigh…I tried to go back to sleep, defeated.

When I decided to write this blog, she came out, did a victory dance around my head, and disappeared again.


Black forest


Finally, I get to try the black forest. Last time, the last piece was sold in front of me. Today, I was there just after black star opened, n got it. I also bought the new lemon raspberry cake.

I liked the lemon raspberry cake. I didn’t like the black forest that much. Too alcoholic….

Trekking at Freycinet

Wineglass Bay LookoutThe plan was to trek up to Mt Amos, and then back to the carpark, and then do the 5hr track that goes to the lookout, wineglass bay, hazards beach and then back.

However, 1/4 way into the Mt Amos track, CH couldn’t continue, so we went back and did the other walk. It’s all good :)

It was abit cold at the lookout. The wind was blowing, and it gets cold real quick.
From the lookout, it was about a 30min walk to wineglass bay. Had lunch there. Tuna and Bread..yum

Wineglass bay looks nice when the sun is out. But when it’s cloudy/shady, it looks OK. The sand there ain’t as fine as what you would expect. Abit coarse.
There were some stupid ppl there though. Saw this girl that wore a ‘block heel’ shoes all the way to the beach. crazy.

A thirty minute walk towards Hazards beach was worth it. I liked Hazards beach much more than wineglass. The water was very calm and I really would’ve wanted to try and have a swim there. The beach was also empty.
From here, it was a 6km trek back to the carpark. Man, this was tiring and was starting to have cramps. Thankfully, we reached the carpark before my thigh muscles froze.

From the carpark, we stopped over at Cape Tourville Lookout for a short while. We were there anyways and the information centre person said it’s a good lookout. He was right. It’s quite pleasant and relaxing to be there. However, we didnt’ stay very long. Being tired, getting hungry, getting dark and without a plan on where to eat or stay for the night made me uneasy. I need my food!

Steaks in Tassie is sooooo yummy! And we managed to find the free campsite close by for the night. Goodnite.

Campervan camping at Friendly beaches


First time to try out a campervan. It is quite fun. But, stupidly, didn’t know how to open the back windows etc.
Next time, I gotta bring some mossie nets to put on window if open.

Camped out at Friendly Beaches, near Coles Bay. It’s free and it was quite dark at night. Good for star photography. And there were also wildlife about. Black-haired wombats, instead of the normal brown.

Discussion with a Radio

Someone once commented that I’m a radio (‘receive sound machine’). A radio, in a sense that I hear stories/gossip but do not ‘broadcast’..hence ‘receive’ sound machine.

A new term popped up whilst I was in discussion about different personalities and talking behaviour of people. Some people will talk on and on, and not get to the point; or fill in a lot of unnecessary details that is irritating and not constructive at all.
My friend commented “..discussing with a radio..”

I laughed out.
I can sooo imagine someone pouring their heart out to a radio (while it is turned on and tuned to some station).

It’s just funny. Hope I made sense!

Asanas – pineapple yoghurt popsicle


Trying out a restaurant/bar Popsicle. Quite nice n refreshing. The yellow powdery stuff are popping candy, n the reddish stuff is raspberry something.


Haven’t had skittles for many years now…
