My dearest nephew,

Thank you for brightening our lives with your smiles and cheekiness and filling us with love. Yiyi loves you very very much, and thank you for waiting for yiyi to come back for your party!!! 😁

Caleb : Yiyi’s iPad at Mama’s (grandma) place
Caleb’s mum : Yes, Yiyi’s iPad. Not Caleb’s iPad. When Yiyi comes back, must give back to Yiyi yah. And to tell Yiyi good job because Yiyi go Africa to do work.
Caleb: Yiyi not good job. Caleb good job.
Caleb’s mum : What work did Caleb do?
Caleb : Caleb do art work at Mama’s place.
Caleb’s mum : Oh…okay. Good job Caleb. 😳

Hehehe!! You never fail to make me laugh! Good job indeed Caleb!
Love you to bits! 🙂


Adventures of a suburban house-sister

Posted in BNE, Down Under, family, gastronomical delights, love, professional tourist in the making on April 6, 2012 by twotwoeight

Most, if not all adventures begin with a hop onto a plane…unless you’re a really good swimmer, or happen to blessed with the ability to teleport — I’m neither.  And of course, spontaneity.  A split second decision.

To be honest, we didn’t do anything exciting or spectacular, in fact I was enjoying leading the suburban lifestyle of a house-sister!

Had the most scrumptious lazy home made brunches.

Fell in love with picnicking at beaches and parks complete with a kick-ass picnic mat with a life of its own.

Went on mini road trips and suburb hopping with the gang.

Exposed our inner “Masterchef”-selves.

Had tons of good food and some awfully weird Turkish coffee.

Paparazzi-ed the birds.

Marveled at the picturesque skies and even managed to catch a rainbow serendipitously.

Transcended time to the wonderful town of Toowoomba where we stuck out like sore thumbs and discovered Instagram was created for Toowoomba.

And of course, the most important of all, hang out with the T-rex 😉

It was an awesome week of doing nothing and yet it was everything.  Time flies when you’re having a good time, doesn’t it?

Miss you much already!!!

Not to be mistaken with Glee the television series, Glee Tees are literally tees that make you glee!
