Happy Australia Day!!
Hope everyone’s Australia Day was as enjoyable as mine! Although I did spend most of it under the air conditioning unit. It was 40 degrees!! I hope not many people took a sickie on Friday 😛
We celebrated Australia Day up in the hill’s at a friend’s place. They had just moved up there and the view is spectacular!! Their house is pretty amazing as well. It reminds me of a country home that I would see in the UK countryside.
Although at first it was hot and humid, it started drizzling, then from a drizzle it was pouring down like cats and dogs with thunder and lightning! Talk about an unforgettable Australia Day 😛
Australia Day is on the 4th day of Chinese New Year celebrations and as celebrations go, we had yee sang … again … I think this is my 4th yee sang. Four yee sangs in four days! That must be a record for me. For the record, the past 4 days I haven’t felt hungry at all! Just full…24 hours, every single day…this is what Chinese New Year does to me >.< Anyhow, as I was saying, we had yee sang and accompanying that yee sang is the many dishes of food that I got to sample.
By 8pm, it was still raining and the city was covered in rain and fog from where I was looking. I soon discovered that down there it hadn’t really rained at all =_= and here we were thinking the fireworks might’ve been cancelled haha
Although I couldn’t see the fireworks well, I still had a pretty awesome lightning show. Some of the lightning was pretty close and spectacular. Standing out in the rain with an umbrella not only attracted lightning but mosquitoes as well. I have at least 15 mosquito bites on my legs. Not fun at all =_=
All in all, it was a pretty fun day, despite the weather, it was an unforgettable Australia day 🙂
