Journey and Home

I remember taking this photo almost 8 years ago at Hong Kong airport when I first traveled to Sydney with my parents.

I don’t know the girl in the photo. I didn’t know whether she was going on a holiday just like us? or couldn’t wait to get home.

But something touched me to rise my camera and catch that moment.

I always have a thing about the airport. It’s a very emotional place let’s admit it. I know, it might be less the case for the regular business class  (I’m sure they are still happy to go home at the end of the business trip though). However, for the rest of the passengers, it’s normally an unknown exciting holiday, or a home sweet home waiting at the other side of the flight. Unless an even faster travel machine is invented, until then, there is nothing can speed up the journey.

So you always have those moments, sitting at the airport, reading a book, sipping a cup of coffee, listening to some music, sending you thoughts far away, imagining a few hours later you will be at a completely different place on the planet, or even a completely different stage of your life for some people, such as me…

Macaroon + Easter Bunny

Saturday was heaps of fun making macaroons with Ally. It was an afternoon full of laugh and sweat.

I’ve heard those little french biscuits are not easy to make. However, with caution and patience we succeeded.

We made five different fillings, butter cream, vanilla butter cream, lemon curd, raspberry jam, and nutella. (Ok, I cheated, I didn’t make the last two)

Although the macaroons were definitely the center of the attention for two hours, surrounded by camera, iPhone, and paparazzi when we were making them, they were demolished within seconds once the photo shoot session was done.

Sunday went pass quickly with a relaxing picnic on the lawn near the light house and beach at Wollongong. The weather wasn’t the most perfect, but we enjoyed it~

p.s about the bunny picture, the rabbit is actually a marshmallow ^^

Cold cold London

There was something about London makes me want to go back again.

Maybe it was the English accent. Maybe it was the building. Maybe it was the Thames river and all the bridges.

But definitely it wasn’t the weather, I would love to go back again during summer time.

Hopefully next time there will be more blue sky in my photos. (not the photoshoped blue sky, lol)

 

A short holiday in Melbourne

The window view we had in an apartment we rent through airbnb.

It was really cosy and lovely and close to everything.

Went to F1 for the first time. Everyone around me is moving their heads from left to right.
