Enjoying Spring in Melbourne

A few weeks back, we brought the Kids to Wilson Botanic Park for a walk. It was the first week of spring and we can see all the lovely flowers blooming around the park.

Here are some shots I took...

More inspections!

We went for another round of property inspection again yesterday. Went to a total of 7 houses in within 3 hours! Most of the viewing is 30 minutes only so we have to rush from one place to another as most of them opened on the same time slot.

Out of the 7 houses, only 1 of the houses is worth considering. Some are okie and some were really awful! As some of them are rented properties, these tenants do not upkeep the house and they look like some garbage dump! I really wonder how can they continue living in such environment???!!!

The kids are drawn to houses which have swings at the backyard and there is a house where there was a drum set with hartke musicians friend kept in the garage which attracted my son. He asked if he could stay and play...

Guessed we'll have to continue looking for a better home to come by...

Myer is coming to town!

This coming Thursday, Myer will opens its door at the nearby mall. I am still contemplating if I should go and join in the opening fun as I will have to bring both my younger kids along with me. However, I am very curious to know what they will have for the opening.... I am hoping to get some freebies of course! hehehe

I am also looking forward to see the kitchen utensil department as well as the home furnishing department. I am hoping to find a good latex mattress for baby as the one she has in her cot is a little soft. Hopefully there will be some opening discounts!

Free stuff!

One thing good about here is when they do those tasting in the malls. They don't stinge like in Malaysia. They want to make sure you fully tasted the products. For example, I got a big bottle of V8 Smoothie after tasting two of their new flavors when they did a promo in the mall near my place.

Back in Malaysia, all we get was a tiny cup to taste and they will never give me a big bottle to bring home! :P

Hurt his wrist!

Last weekend we went for more property inspections. It was indeed a very tiring and tedious job. As most of the sessions clashed with one another, we have to rush from one place to another in lightning speed as the window for the viewing is only 30 minutes.

After all the hard work, we brought the kids to the park to relax and hubby has to hurt his wrist while helping our girl on the swing! It went numb for a while and he said it was really painful as he might has twisted his wrist. Luckily the pain went off after a while so he did not have to spend money getting those thumb spica splints to help with healing.
