Melbourne Cup Day

Melbourne Cup is Australia's major annual thoroughbred horse race. Its billed a The Celebration that stops a nation! 

The said event was held in Melbourne but the whole nation celebrate it and watch the race live on TV. It is one of the many events that Aussies love to celebrate, and it was last November 2007 that I celebrated it with my friend.. 

We went to a club to watch and join in with others , well actually for some people it's just an excuse for them to wear something nice and go out for lunch; it's also a tradition for women to wear a hat.. So my friend Erma and I went out to bet on some horses and have lunch.. 
 It was fun with all the hustle and bustle ,, We also played the machine and my friend had a little bit of luck on it. But don't mistake us for being a hustler because I really don't have an idea about how that machine works,, I just press on it ,, (ha ha ha.. papindot pindot na lang..)

I didn't pick the winner of the race but it was exciting just to go out and dress up for the event. Just for FUN.....
