Getting ready

Yesterday morning we went to the travel agent to get all our papers and tickets for our holiday this coming December ,, tickets for Disneyland, hotel plane tickets were all done,, we also booked a transport from the airport to the hotel .. we just wanted to arrive and someone will meet us and take is to the hotel straight away,, no more fuss...

We make the booking early February 2009 , to get a good dates and get the best travel insurance quote   , when the agent came up with a good package deal we settled them straight away to avoid any hassles ....

As the days pass ,, my hubby and I had been talking about going on a diet ,, hoping that we can at least loose a few pounds before our holiday,, for sure once we are there we are going to gain more because we are missing all the nice food out there and we will definitely pig out and try everything... We are getting excited and the kids are looking forward to it... Especially Bianca who kept on telling me about her cousin Reign whom she see online via the web cam, I've already sent heaps of toys so they can play together....

Net thing to do is to ring up our family doctor to arrange to get our needles/ injection before we travel ...

Can't watch it

Last week my friends and I were talking about the Sydney Motor show and she was saying that they are going to take their boy to the show,, I said that I might  take my boy too , considering that he loves cars ,, but I found out in the net that it was cancelled..  My hubby would love to see some awesome    ,, but maybe next time.

This year’s Sydney motor show will not go ahead after cash-strapped car makers convinced organisers to alternate shows between Sydney and Melbourne. By RICHARD BLACKBURN.



This year’s Sydney motor show has been cancelled after pressure from financially strapped car companies forced the organisers to strike a deal with the Melbourne motor show to hold events on alternate years.

The Melbourne motor show will go ahead as planned later this month, but the Sydney show in October has been put back to 2010.

The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (
FCAI), organiser of the Sydney motor show, and the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (VACC), organisers of the Melbourne motor show, have formed a joint venture to run both shows, which will each be named the Australian International Motor Show.

The deal was brokered in response to a boycott of last year’s Sydney motor show by a number of car companies who wanted just one major motor show a year.

Eighteen brands failed to show in Sydney last year, including exotic
drawcards Porsche, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Bentley and Rolls-Royce, as well as leading luxury brands Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi.

As a result, attendances were down by roughly 40 per cent on the previous year.
FCAI chief executive Andrew McKellar said the joint venture would allow both organisations to be involved in a “viable and sustainable” event, while maintaining the tradition and heritage of both shows.

He admitted that the new model “takes into account the views of the many vehicle brands who considered the proliferation of motor shows in Australia as being too costly.”

Car makers, faced with shrinking marketing budgets, had argued that if major shows such as Frankfurt and Paris could hold their car shows bi-annually, so could the two rival Australian cities.
McKellar admitted staging a Sydney motor show later this year would have been “fraught with difficulty”, given the state of the economy.

“There was an emerging consensus within the industry that we needed to move in this direction,” he said. m“We’ll get a better result in terms of what we can bring to future motor shows and that will be better for the public.”

He admitted that the non-attendance of key
drawcards at last year’s show was a big factor in the drop-off in ticket sales, but said other factors were also in play.

“There were a number of factors that impacted on the show in Sydney last year. It coincided with the first real impacts of the global financial crisis.”

He said the staging of alternate events would ensure a high standard of exhibits, including the latest show cars.

“I think we’
ve all learned from the [Sydney] experience. I think the determination of everyone concerned is that when we next present a keynote event it will be one of the highest quality and that’s why we’ve gone down this path,” he said.Source  DRIVE.com.au

School Holiday

It's school holiday here in Oz and we are on the second week of the holiday, Braiden is somewhat getting bored at home,, although I take him out for school holiday activities at the mall,,, he seems to be missing the normal school routine. He goes to a normal school with a support class, he is in a support class for kids with special needs , since he has a mild autism ,, he usually likes a set of routines , he always wanted to know what is the next activity and with the help of visual aids he cope very well, I like how the school manage to teach kids with special needs in thay school, not only kids with autism but also kids with adhd some of the kids are taking adhd medication  to help them focus in school work...

My boy is manageable and easy to cope with all the activities and I am glad that he is loving the school , I can imagine and feel for those kids who are having difficulty socializing and coping with others , but with  understanding , support and therapy we can help  the kids . Its just being open minded and awareness of the condition.....

Trying to settle

The chaotic way of moving things for my eldest daughter is just putting all her stuff in a box without labeling and tossing things out ... even things that are important...


When we were moving out of the house I specifically told her to clean her bedroom and pack all her stuff,, it is her responsibility to do it,, I have a thousand and one things to do and I cannot deal with her messy room...

But it was not done properly ,,, she was fretting the other day because she lost her prescription script for her acne treatment   and she was bugging me to look for it,, but to no avail ,, we cant find it ,, so I have to ring up the dermatologist to ask for another script ...

Its been 4 days now that we moved to the new place and there are still heaps of boxes to unload and putting all the stuff in its proper places ....

Moving Out

The house is such at a mess at the moment ,, with heaps of stuff to pack and move ,, it is just overwhelming. I've been in this house for 8 years and all the things that we accumulated are  too much ...

Last Saturday we did our first load of moving,, we started with all the  things in the garage and the shed and they are now safely packed away in the garage in the house that we are renting at the moment .

As I inspect the things that we need to take I went outside and check my hubby's outdoor bar ,, I almost forgot that he still have some stuff hanging in there ,, I like that bar , it also have a  bar faucet  and a cupboard below ,, the is a special feature of the backyard, and hopefully the new owners will enjoy it too...

The weather here in Oz is beautiful warm Spring ,, a perfect day to move things and do some clean up and I'm hoping that it will stay beautiful this weekend because we are going to have a big move out,, including all the furniture ...
