I’m getting tired of the cold weather.  I have this love and hate relationship with Winter since I’ve moved to Sydney.  I appreciate the cold weather and I like the change of seasons, but when where on the 2nd month of Spring and it’s still too cold sometimes, I get tired of wearing heavy outfits.  I grew up in a tropical country and I think no matter how many years I live here, I will always love a sunny weather.

Last weekend, we were blessed to have warm weather during the day.  The sun was shining and it was the perfect time to be in the City.

We arrived at Darling Harbour before lunch and the mood was festive.

Spend a bit of time by the harbour.  I had to take off my jacket as it was sunny and warm.  I loved it!

It helps to check the weather forecast for the day.  I wore an outfit that won’t let me sweat or get cold in because we will be out from lunch til dinnertime.  I usually bring a large tote bag that will safekeep my jacket and scarf for me.

Knowing that it will be cold from afternoon onwards, I wore my favourite boots from Muji (great for walking) and Kate Torralba’s Leg Love stockings (keeps my legs warm).

After lunch with friends, we went out the harbour again and it was a bit cold and windy.  Out came my jacket and scarf from my tote bag.

The Latin Festival was in full swing so we went around a bit and looked at the craft stalls.

Now in its 18th year, Fiesta continued its exciting tradition of presenting Australia’s leading Latin music bands. This year’s program across three outdoor stages includes Watussi, Club Havana Band, Mi Tierra, Son Veneno, Gonzalo Porta and the Sydney Salsa All-stars and the I Like It Like That Orchestra. In all, more than 70 top Latin bands and dance groups, dance classes and DJs appeared and the tastes of Latin American cuisine were served over three sensational days and nights.

Produced by Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority, the Fiesta featured international, local and national Latin American bands, sexy salsa and tango dance experts, captivating Brazilian carnivale girls and flamenco dancers, incredible capoeira performers and much more!


Adding spice to Fiesta, there was a delicious range of Latin American and Spanish food stalls at Tumbalong Park that offered a variety of culinary treats such as traditional paella, tacos and enchiladas, empanadas, Colombian coffee, Spanish churros and Argentinean alfajore cookies. 
There were craft stalls selling Inca jewellery, Andean music.

We loved the festive vibe at the Harbour last that day.  A lot of families had come out because it was the long weekend and the school kids were in Spring holiday.  We also saw a lot of tourists, a sign that there will be more as Sydney becomes a warmer place.
