Taken

I was saddened by the news that he was taken away too soon.  It was unexpected by all of us, he is so precious more than like  gemstone jewelry to all of us. Why too soon papa?  Our papa, who never fail to show his best to give us good life and loved us unconditionally.  The incomparable father I've known, the one who never ever  tried to use his hand to hurt us or flick or pinch or spank or hit us with stick if we his children are naughty and bad. The most loving and kind father as we always describe him, if we talk about him to our friends, we are so lucky to have him us our father.  But now, you're gone and it made me realize how much I've lost.  I still need more time to spend to be with him and let him feel a very comfortable life, I'd promise him and mum to visit Australia after my sister's holiday here. He don't wait for that.
 
Now, that you are in heaven, I will just accept the fact that you are not physically present with us but always present in our hearts.  I've shed a lot of tears every time I'm thinking of you.  I still can't believe you're gone now and left us too soon.  I miss you so much papa, I may not so expressive and showy how I'd both love you and mama. I'm proud a proud daughter of yours.
 
Please always guide and protect our lives.  Be our angel in our daily life. I love you papa.

Very Useful

The calling cards or  business cards are always useful to me, I often get one on some shops or other business establishment I had been visited.  I collect those contact information or brochures that are given away in case one day I need to make transactions or have some inquiries.
 
Like last time, I went to the seafood shop nearest to my place to assume and just feeling lucky if they have the product I'm looking for. I'm not too sure if it is available that day especially it's hard to get them on late afternoon which is the time I went to, because of luck I got what I've wanted, the shop save those scraps and store in the freezer.  The "whiting fish heads" for crabbing baits.
 
Before I've left the shop, I took a business card in case I needed some whiting heads again in the future, although they're 5 minutes drive only it's still best to call them ahead of time before going there just checking if the product I've wanted is available on hand so then I can place an order.  It's just convenient and I'm avoiding to waste some time.

Used flute

Many of us wants to develop a talent of our own. The talent in cooking, sports, dancing, singing, playing instruments and etc. Sometimes we are trying hard to fulfil and improve the talent we are pursuing, some did achieve it and some are still working hard on it or some can't keep doing it because of financial reason. I wonder why, some people refuse to continue especially those inspiring musicians, I never thought one of the instruments they used like flute can be very expensive it's worth 10,000+ dollars for a brand new flute when I was looking online. But guess what? you really don't need to have a brand new, just to let you know there are a many used flute from musicians friend that you can buy for 100 dollars only 90% cheaper and it's still immaculate condition and it's like brand new.  It's highly recommended for those who wants to play flute and a student learner who wants to be a great musician someday.

The old is gone, a new one comes

The gift of friendship.  It's been more than 5 years now that I am living here in Australia.  I've met a lot of people along the way.  I've gained some good friends from work and from my Filipino community. I was once I had a very good friend that I always hang around with. I thought its friends for life but it wasn't. You can't really tell what happen next until the friendship experience some challenges, it is where you know who the real person is, who will stick into your life no matter what happen. 
 
Yes,  I've lost a very good friend before for some silly reason but now so happy to found a new one. She is not the same as the old one but we seem to have lots in common and get along in every other way of life.  I hope it's a friend forever, a friend who knows how to embrace the essence and meaning of friendship. I have a few acquaintances that I catch up once in a while but it's different to have one that anytime you can talk to or hang out like the one I had before, but now, lucky to have new one again that I can treasure.
 
I'm thanking the Lord for always there to me and who knows what is my needs and wants in life.  Giving me good friends is one thing I'm thankful for, I'm so blessed and happy not only with family but also sharing the good times with great friends.

Cool Change

After a week of super hot temperature, since last night was a relief of cool change. Although, thunder and lightning are a bit scary the rain was a bonus to cool down the surroundings. As it's weekend, I guess the crowds in the beach are increasing more and more. How I wish I'm not working today, so I can be an additional crowd in the beach too (lol).  
 
It might be great weather to those getting married today in an outdoor atmosphere, the guys who wears tuxedo vests might still feel comfortable with this weather and enjoying the party without heat problem
 
With this cool change as well it will be less consumption of electricity. While the heat is burning this week the 3 air-conditioning at home were all in use all day.  I was now a bit worried when the bill comes this quarter, but well what can I do? I hope it's not a huge bill only.
 
I hope you guys are now relieve, comfortable and happy with this cool change and continue enjoying the summer fun.

Keeping cool

After enjoying the 9 hours coolness at work.  Here I am now back home,  resting, relaxing and trying to keep myself cool with this super hot weather. I've been to backyard earlier to visit my garden and my tomato plants were so weak, so I've watered them to recover from heat.  I'd turned on the air conditioning in the lounge so I can watch the only sports I like on tv. The tennis game of Australian Open, not too exciting yet because the one playing right now are not my favorites, usually they play on evening highlight games.  
 
Now, I'm having a snack and an ice cold  grape flavour drink. Just sitting and relaxing in reclining chair is nice, it makes me fall asleep.  I wish I could get a deep tissue massage just to spoil myself.
 
I hope tonight will have a cool change like of last night. How are you guys keeping yourself cool? Don't worry about the electric bill put yourself on a comfortable feeling and enjoy the coolness inside the house.

Semaphore Street Fair

Last Sunday, I've found a weekend events online here in Adelaide.  The Semaphore Street Fair that's was celebrated every year. I've encouraged my hubby to go and he don't think twice, this is the location of one of our favourite beach. We've been here a few times but it's our first time to witness and experience the event of this year.  It's more on family thing I guess because there are a few recreational rides for the kids but of course all ages are welcome to join.  The whole jetty road was closed because it was used for street market fair. There are lots of displays and food tasting of South Australian authentic products, some also had their way to promote and sell their goods. There is a group of greek who sell their delicacies while playing the  cool mandolin instrument, others are singing while the ladies were dancing the traditional greek dance steps to entertain the by passers. It's very entertaining and lots of fun being part of the event. 
 
After we almost done strolling the whole street, we sit down at Café Primo restaurant to eat.   My hubby ordered his usual chicken schnitzel and I've got the prawn and calamari meal. After the meal we went to the beach side to look around and watch the different rides and recreational activities.
 
Here are a couple of photos that catches my eyes while walking.

I had the free spot to shot my hubby with the crocodile background
