Cradle Mountain

I’m back!! Back to my routine life after 10 days of holiday….. Just finished unpacking and started to filter what seems like thousands of photos! I wish to upload all at once too but really, I don’t wish to flood my friends with 1000 pieces of crap photo in FB! :D

Certainly, I will update to my blog as well when I have that little extra time to do so *fingers crossed* There wouldn’t be long grandma stories as I want to make my post entry as simple as possible (the truth is, I’m too lazy to write ^^).

To kick start my Tasmania & Melbourne trip entry, I’m going to post some a lot of photos we took at Cradle Mountain. It was my first time seeing and touching snow, woo hoo, so excited! There was no snowfall though, only frosted snow on the ground.

It felt like we’ve been sitting in the car for the entire day….. it’s a loooong way to Cradle Mountain!

The moon has come out to work, giving such a beautiful color to the sky

A warm kiss in the cold :D Oh this is one hot photo in my FB! and I still couldn't figure out why. Perhaps, it's because I never posted any photos of Chris kissing me? Yes, must be that! :D

Beer, anyone?

Everything was lovely there except, it was a tad cold. But without such temperature, there wouldn't be snow :)

Blissful moment..... :)

Oh yes, my first time. Wee!

Actually, it's not easy to walk on snow! Mind your step!

Although there was no snowfall at Cradle Mountain while we were there, but a small piece of land covered with snow was more than enough to make us HAPPY! :)

With the love-liest person in the world! LOL!

Throw it higher baby!

Enjoying the splash! :D

That's all for now!

Hot Air BaloOn Surprise!

It was supposed to be a surprise for me but well…. Chris blurted it out at the last minute, as always! Haha! (Sorry for spoiling your surprise plan once again :p)

It is one of my little dreams (I have way too much dreams!) to ‘fly’ in a hot air balloon, especially after watching a travel program ‘Last Paradise’ (現代塵世美) series 5

Inside the episode, the host, Wong Cho Lam, travelled across Australia. One part of the show, he went to a hot air balloon ride in Melbourne. The view was… absolutely STUNNING!

Chris secretly checked on the prices via internet but it is way too expensive to ride on a hot air balloon in Melbourne. But as a bonus, Chris found a charity campaign in Malaysia - with hot air balloon ride! At the right time and right place! Was that lucky or what?

But wait……

As nice as the photos might seem….we didn’t ride on it!! T.T…………..

According to the hot air balloon crew, it was rather windy that day. We waited for an hour or two but all we can see was a giant balloon laid flat on the grass… Also, we just found out that the ride was only 5 minutes per group. The organizer finally agreed to make a refund to us and that’s the end of the surprise-hot-air-balloon-ride story.

Surprise?? YES!!

Lucky? NO!
