Summer Days

It’s summer season here in Australia, everyone are excited to plan for outings, clubbing, camping and all sorts of outdoor activities for the family  Especially going to the beach for a swim or to those who have swimming pool must be lucky to have a dip anytime they like for refreshment.

Is there any of you has a swimming pool at the backyard? Is there a fence around the pool? If you have kids, it’s really advisable that you should surround a fence on it, I think it was imposed by council law now, like the pool fence tampa is the best example at installing pool guard fencing for the safety and protection of kids from drowning.

We heard many stories about babies who had drowned and died in the pool. Some parents were busy doing the house chores and unconsciously haven't notice that kids was already out of the house. So to be aware and avoid the accident, safety pool fence is really recommended if you have a swimming pool.

I think everyone are starting to enjoy and getting more life during the summer. Let's enjoy and have fun on this fantastic weather.

Getting busy

It's been almost a week I was not able to update my blogs.  I was busy on both jobs because Christmas is not far away. Retail business are getting busier each day and I've got extra shift from both jobs, I was tired and lazy to think what to write and participate on meme's but in my heart I wish I can join everyday.  I still try my best to update, aside from work I was also busy organizing and starting a small business online, a local one just for fun and I'm excited about it.  I'm not sure if it will success though but I'll try only, at least I've tried there's nothing to lose doing it.

I hope you can visit Siromade's Closet and check it out some pre-loved and pre-owned clothing for sale.

All I want for Christmas

All I want for Christmas is a new Canon camera. I don't know how long can I save money to upgrade my old model camera, I'm always getting the second hand of my hubby but at least it's free hehe.  We have loyalty on canon in terms of camera, my husband before were not married yet and since digicam was invented he has already upgraded four times. Everytime he don't like the old one, he gave it to me and the old one I've got I also give to my family when I'm on my holiday in Philippines.

 But now, me myself had a crush on Canon T1i, I wish I can have it sooner or if not later. I also plan to have a short course about using DSLR sothat I can take proper and good effect photos.


I remember during my childhood, usually my family gather together watching American shows on television and able to see snows featured in the show. How I've dreamed and I think everyone same as me are wanting to see a real snow someday. Like playing outside to create balls and snowman, that's childish dream only.

When I was young I thought if you went overseas all the country has snows during winter, I was wrong, just my silly imagination. Until one day I'm going to settle in Australia, I was so excited I thought it's happening in my life soon to feel the snow in the winter. I was thinking what better MSR Snowshoes to have when winter comes, hehe but not, I'm a bit disappointed because I belong in South Australia

Now, I know which part of Australia has a snow, its somewhere on Victoria, Melbourne. My friend was there for a visit and did some snow sport with her family.  How I wish one day I can visit there sothat I can see it for real.

Remembrance Day

Tomorrow is Remembrance day, it's November 11 is the anniversary of soldiers who died and suffered on all wars and army conflicts. Each year Australians take a minute of silence around 11am on November 11 in memory of those dead soldiers who fought during the war.

Knowing about the history of Remembrance Day, I also remember ages ago it was late afternoon we've been to Centennial Park cemetery and had the chance to visit the memorial of these soldiers. I had an entry and posted a few photos before about South  Australian Garden of Remembrance . I'll just re-post a couple of the photos from the garden which is the reflection pool and the view of the garden.

I almost forgot it's also my hubby's birthday, he just reminded me when I was talking about Remembrance day to him. He even crack a joke to me that he was lucky because on this day all Australian stand still around 11am in memory of

Last Saturday was an interesting and very productive day for us.  Hubby and I was lately like to visit shop these days, we had fun visiting shops for home improvements in the future or canvass what possible things to buy.  We went to furniture and bedding shop for browsing an entertainment lounge after that we went to the other shop to buy barbeque for outdoor use.  The interesting part and the fun thing to do is how to assemble , hubby and I help each other but were having a hard time to start because the instruction is not very helpful and confusing.  How many times we disassemble the stand but in the long run we've made it stand all together by just looking the image of every parts in the photo. It takes us more 2 hours I think, but it's worth the effort seeing it all useful and ready to use. We christen that night having our bbq dinner at the backyard, we had lamb steaks and chicken kebabs. We really enjoyed that day eventhough it's a bit tiring, it's my first time to do  a manly job too, I now learn how to deal the use of screw and knots on mechanical aspect.

Crawling flowers

I saw this crawling tiny purple flowers growing under a big tree when we park on the side street to buy something on a 7 days shop. Don't know what flower is this, it looks lovely in a distance and also when you get closer.

The Beetle

It was Sunday afternoon last two weeks ago when I arrive home from work and I ask my hubby to buy a take away bbq chicken pack at fish and chips shop for I'm tired to make our dinner.  As we are waiting our order, we usually go back to the car and wait there until it's time for us to go back after 15 minutes. But instead of sitting inside the car what I did is sit on the ground to stretch my legs and relax, I only do that because I know there is no people walking around there.  When chicken is almost ready my hubby told me to stand up and he saw the tiny beetle like half an inch size dancing together with the ants.  Or I bet he was bitten by the ants that surrounds every corner of his body because all he does is just turn around and around on the same spot. Using my mobile taking the photo looks like it captures well to think it's very small beetle only.

If you enlarge the photo you can clearly see how cute the ants were attacking the foot and hand of the beetle

This photo was taken when we just arrive from the car park of hardware shop, viewing the ramp going up to the car park of shopping center was an image of a massive clouds in the sky.

During All Saints Day/ All Souls Day

Today, is All Saints Day,  it's not a public holiday here in Australia and people are not too busy about it.  There are some people celebrates Halloween party but not as popular or traditional deeds of people to visit  the cemetery or have some feast in celebration of the All Saints or All Souls Day.  What people are celebrating here now is the Melbourne Cup,a horse racing competition and a coincidence it falls on All Saints Day too. This event was declared to be a public holiday on Melbourne, how lucky they are.

Now, I'm just thinking the celebration that was going on in the Philippines. It's a public holiday there and a big event is happening. Everyone are so busy, others are carrying kelty backpacks for a trip to the province to visit their deceased relatives at the cemetery and it's a form of family gathering as well. Most household were preparing some traditional delicious food that was made during this occasion. How I've missed those times when I was still there during this occasion. It's like a family, classmate and friends reunion for me because sometimes you can only meet them on this day. Now I'm just imagining that my family are now gathering altogether at the cemetery and after that go back home and eat the traditional food they have cooked. Hmmm I'm still imagining, especially the food that it's been ages I haven't eaten yet.

All I will do later is make an overseas call to hear some news and be a part of the gathering even just on the phone.  

Happy Halloween Everyone.
