Aussie Life

The Universe gave us a beautiful Sunset on the last day of Summer.


And just like that, we are now transitioning to Autumn. *sigh*

What is really that quick? Temperature wise, we will still have warm days until end of March. But mornings and evenings have been cool-ish since last week. The days are getting shorter. We wake up at 6am and it’s still dark. There is a need to bring a cardigan or a light jacket now because we might need it for when there’s a change in weather. This morning, I woke up and it was dark and cool (at 15C degrees) and I thought, “We’re doing this again???”. “This” pertaining to getting ready for work when instead I would like to stay under a warm blanket and sleep some more. Not complaining. Just thinking that it’s all too soon.

On the other hand, I felt an excitement for the cold to come. It was in the past Summer when I realised that it is not my favourite season anymore and there were days when I felt that the heat was too tiring as it drains one’s energy. Funny thing was, we actually had a pretty good Summer. We didn’t have days of endless heatwaves, instead just a day of very hot weather here and there. We even had rain on some days. So I think the Universe was very considerate of us this time. I do hope that the next Summer will be as good.

Moving on, I see a very heartwarming Autumn as it will be filled with a lot time spending with family and friends. The Hubby and I are looking forward to an exciting and fun-filled season.

Have a lovely Autumn! Let’s all stay healthy as we transition to cold weather.

Spring officially ended yesterday and as a way of saying hello to a new season, let me share my favourite photo of this year’s Spring Sunset.

Spring Sunset 2014

I’ve shared an Autumn Sunset and a Winter Sunset previously and as I look at them, I see a difference in each one and appreciate their individual beauty. Living in Sydney has made me love Sunsets so much more. A few days ago, the Husband and I were watching the sun set and I was just sitting still. He asked if I was tired of watching the sunset and I said, “Never. Some days, I just want to savour it with my eyes and keep the memory inside my head.”

Summer is officially here. Longer days ahead, longer sunsets to watch.

Night Noodle Markets

Just when I thought we’d skip this year’s Night Noodle Markets, the Hubby suddenly surprised me on Friday afternoon by meeting up with me in the city after work. The plan was I’d do a bit of errands in the city and we’d just meet up at a train station near his workplace. But instead, he called and he was already in the city and suggested to check out the Night Noodle Markets.

We were there for only a while but we enjoyed the festive vibe of the event starting with this giant Maneki-neko (Japanese for “beckoning cat”). It’s huge but it’s one of the cutest thing ever.

The Husband turned 35 two weeks ago and I made sure he’s had a fun September. He’s not fond of making a fuss about his birthday but I made a bit of effort in making his month festive by doing little things here and there. I like seeing his face lit up whenever I surprise him with the things he love and enjoy.
