I am thankful that we don't have harsh winter down under but sometimes I also want to wrap myself up in some knitwear. I can actually get to do this in the early mornings and at night time but skip it during midday unless I want to toast myself. But for coordinated dressing up I am willing to compromise especially when I have beanies and gloves that completely rock the teddy look.

I've been waiting to wear these over-the-knee boots from Tony Bianco which I got at the end of summer to prep for the cold season. But there's just wasn't an occasion to strut them aside from going to the beaches and strolling the city. So I created an occasion and that was for hubby's birthday dinner in a restaurant. He's my photographer most of the time and he normally checks if I dress appropriately. But for his special day he can't say no if I dress like this :)

The first time I laid my eyes on this tweed jacket I felt my eyes were being glued. No matter how much I shrugged it off, I kept stealing glances until I gave in. Who cares about my weekly budget I thought, I would be more regretful if I pass it up. It would cost more actually if I will come back for it later, my time and my effort I think are priceless :) So I've convinced myself successfully.

When's the last time you went to an aquarium? My last visit was more than 10 years ago. I guess adults don't have an inclination to see the marine life in big tanks unless they are exploring a new city. To be honest, I only got to go to Sydney Sea Life Aquarium because I accompanied my mum and my niece who were visiting Australia. My previous visit was for the same reason and that was with my friend from America. Oh well, thank God for visiting family and friends, if not for them I wouldn't have found Nemo and Dory :)

The working days that I love the most are those when I'm attending training classes in another place. Much better if it's overseas but a few kilometres away is enough for me to feel ecstatic. Well, this time it's only in the other side of the Harbour Bridge but the training centre has 180 degrees unobstructed views of the harbour.

Unlike going to a picnic, fishing runs on a timetable if you want to be serious about it. Serious means to be able to catch the right fish at the right time. Apparently, fishing in Australia is a serious game. You need a license to be able to throw a line and the fish caught must be of a legal size else it has to be thrown and released back to the water.

It's finally winter down under and nothing can stop us from having a picnic. Honestly folks, a picnic is an almost forgotten fun event these days. I know, my boys would want nothing to do outside the house, with the crazy fun stuff they can do with online gaming who needs the outdoors.

Wondering how Sydney beaches look like during cold season? Coogee beach one of Sydney's Eastern beaches is known for its great cafes and a haven for families. It is sharing the same coastline with Bondi, hence the famous Bondi to Coogee walk. We went there so early, earlier than my normal weekend wake up call just to have a big breakfast. At least we were not disappointed.
