Our weekend away








We had a relaxing long weekend.. We stayed at Dorralong Valley Resort around 1.5 hours away from us.. The scene is breathtaking and relaxing.. A lot of space for the kids to run around..

The kids enjoyed the long walk, bike riding,, horseback riding, golf and canoeing. 
It was bit cold during that time because it was raining for a week... but Friday till Sunday we had a perfect weather,,, although it was still a bit muddy ,, kids enjoyed stumping on the puddle..
We might come back here during winter time where we can have a fireplace... that would be nice chilly and misty......

I Like watching Gordon Ramsay


Yes,, I like his Gordon Ramsay's show.. he is brutally honest and entertaining as well... He's got the charisma,, you may either like him or loathe him.. but no matter what he is still the winner,, people still watch his show and if you don't like him turn he TV off..

He was interviewed on 60 minutes Australia and was asked about his swearing and his commnets about using the F word  80 times  was...

GORDON RAMSAY: Yeah, well I mean first of all my apologies to any parents, but trust me - in life it doesn't really pay to wrap them up in cotton wool. Um, I don't swear to offend children. I'm a father and I have children of my own. I'm surrounded by children constantly. Put them to bed, be sensible. And if you're not happy with it switch the (Bleep) television over you d..k!

Ha haha,, he's a funny man.. and I like him...  he's got the most viewed show here in Oz,, and he is the Talk of the town... 
I just find him passionate and dedicated to his  work . 
For those who doen'st know Gordon Ramsay 
He  is a British celebrity chef, television personality and entrepreneur. He has been awarded a total of twelve Michelin stars,[1] and as of April 2008 is one of only three chefs in the UK whose restaurant is rated at three Michelin stars. He is famous in the UK for presenting TV programmes about competitive cookery and food such as Hell's Kitchen and The F-Word. He is best known in the United States as the host of FOX's Hell's Kitchen, which premiered in May 2005, and of Kitchen Nightmares, which premiered in September 2007, based on his successful British show Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares.

CELEBRITY chef Gordon Ramsay used the "F" word more than 80 times in less than an hour during his prime-time program on Tuesday night.

Ramsay dropped the F-bomb, and various derivatives, more than 80 times in Channel 9's Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares at 8.30pm on Tuesday.

There were more than 100 expletives in the 45 minutes of TV.

And the issue of bad language is not limited to the commercial networks.

Have you seen his shows and what can you say about it?

I need to have more courage and alot of convincing from people who have done the climb... be fearless they say or just be contented to be amaze of how the people from up there can do such a scary experience!! horray to all of you.... people up there!!
So just watch the video and see Sydney...

Starfish



 A year ago after our 1st visit to Hamilton Island and after exploring the place where Nemo lives,,, my hubby decided to set up a Saltwater Tank..  


We started setting up live rocks, anemones, corals and then eventually adding saltwater fish and other sea creatures..

Although it needs constant cleaning up and making sure the water temperature and PH balance are all maintained.. Just looking around it,, make us feel relax , seeing them swimming around and hearing the sound of the water..
Today I'll feature our BLUE STARFISH...


Sea stars are commonly referred as Starfish , but they actually are not fish at all but echinoderms. The most intriguing feature of the Starfish is the ability to regenerate their lost arms , Under ideal conditions, the lost arm will turn into a complete starfish.

Each arm has two rows of feet called podia that are used for attachment, locomotion and respiration, the mouth and stomach are located on the underside in the central disc..
Our Blue Starfsh is very mobile and moves around everywhere,, she is such a STAR because she is always sticking on the front,, and showing off,,,,,

Brief characteristic was exerted from saltwater -aquarium-guide.com

Farm Visit


Old McDonald had a Farm  Ei -ei- O

We are always out and about especially my sister JenL is here ,, we make sure we go out every weekends to visit different places .. Kids like to see the native animals like kangaroo and Koala.. Bianca was a bit scared of the Kangaroo because it went near her sniffing her stuff... She started to whimper and dad Joe helped her to ease her fears.. while on the other hand Braiden and Micah were excitedly patting the scary kangaroo..  Koala ,, who loves to sleep has to be waken up by the caretakers to feed them... they are very docile mammals and they are just so cuddly...

It was a nice sunny autumn day,, best time to spent  outdoors... like what we did a picnic at the farm and an enjoyable day visiting the farm....
