Time is really flying this year and it is almost the end of the year.

I have been quite busy the last few weeks as my in laws are here and we are making use of every free time to travel and show them around. I will be blogging about it soon.

Today is Christmas and it is the time of the year again to spend time with friends and family. As we reflect on this wonderful holiday, let’s share the goodness of our heart with others, express with words and gifts what someone means to us.

Sculpture by the sea 2013

Like every year, hubby and I decided to go for a walk to see sculpture by the sea. However, this year, we decided to go for a sunrise instead of in the afternoon.

The night before, we went to bed early to wake up at 4.00am. AS woke up and tried to wake me up but I couldn’t. Instead, I woke up at 5 am and realise that we are goona miss the sunrise. Anyway, we got ready and reached Bondi beach. I thought it would be easy to get parking so early in the morning but to our dismay, we have to park farther away from the beach as we couldn’t find one nearby.

When we got there we realise that it was so cloudy, the sun had decided to hide behind the clouds so even though we had been there at 5:40am, we would still have missed the sunrise. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the walk. I’m sharing some of the photos from the day.

Sculpture by the sea

Each spring, artists from all over the world converge on Sydney’s Bondi Beach to Tamarama coastal walk to showcase their work at Sculpture by the Sea, the world’s largest annual free-to-the-public outdoor sculpture exhibition. The scenic walk is transformed into a 2km sculpture park with more than 100 works by artists from Australia and around the world.

Sculpture by the Sea began in 1997 with an exhibition held over one day at Bondi Beach and is now an annual event.

I have been going to this event for the last few years and it is a really nice thing to do on a day off as it provides great exercise, spectacular views, beautiful arts and many photo opportunities.

Like every year, this year also, I went to this exhibition with my husband and my friend SS. This year the exhibition consisted of a variety of works from 49 New South Wales sculptors, 28 interstate artists, and 36 international artists from China, Denmark, England, Germany, Iceland, India, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Puerto Rico, South Korea, Spain, and the U.S.

Every year there are some wonderful arts on exhibit along with some weird one.

I really wanted to go this year for the sunrise but these days the sun rises at 5am so to be there at that time, I needed to wake up at 4am. On weekend, that was not a good plan so we decided to go around 8am. Unfortunately, it was a gloomy day but it wasn’t raining yet.

We started from Bondi and were surprised to see so many people already there. I saw busloads of tourist everywhere. There were also lots of family with young children.

We started of walk from the first sculpture and followed the path along the Bondi beach to the top of the hill. There were many amazing arts there and some complicated ones.

On the top of the hill, there was a tent with mini sculptures so we entered and started looking at the amazing creations. In that time, it started raining heavily and we felt lucky to be inside the tent. The rain stopped within 15 minutes.

After the rain, we continued our walk toward Tamara beach. We saw two award winning arts. It was so nice to walk the coast and finally reach the last art. Overall we had a great day and quite good exercise.

Sharing some photos from the day.

Christmas in Australia

Christmas in Australia is normally all about BBQ and beach. It is in summer so instead of having snow and bonfires we head to the beach to cool down and enjoy time with our family and friends.

One of the famous things to do during Christmas is to go and watch Christmas carols in Domain. Normally they have lots of celebrities and thousand of spectators coming together to sing carols and support charities.

I really feel bad for the Santa here who are wearing Santa outfit in this hot weather.

Normally we eat roast turkey, roast potatoes, pumpkin and salads, cold ham, cold chicken, king prawns, lobster and crayfish. Desserts are normally Pavlova with cream, strawberries, passionfruit and mince Pies. Don’t forget chilled beers, wine and champagne.

I am sure you haven’t seen this but if you go to Bondi beach on Christmas day, you will see Santa not in the sledge but in either surfboard or lifesaving boat.

This year the weather has been a bit crazy. It has been raining and a bit cold. Very abnormal for December in Sydney. We are hoping it snows here (hahaha) this year so we can experience a white Christmas. It is raining right now.

Christmas is my favourite time of the year. I love the way all the malls and streets are decorated with lights and ornaments. Lots of houses in each suburb and their gardens are decorated with lights and Christmas ornaments. Today, I saw a bus fully decorated with Christmas stuff and the driver dressed as Santa. He was happily honking and wishing everyone a merry Christmas. It brought a smile to lots of passer by.

 The environment in the malls and offices are transformed into sparkly and colourful, happy places. I did a round at work yesterday and going through each department, I saw lots of nice decorations. Everyone seems happy and looking forward to a long break.

Our department is well decorated as well with tinsel and Christmas lights. The gifts under the Christmas tree is growing day by day as everyone is dropping their gifts there.

There are a few lunches and dinner planned to celebrate Christmas at work. The first morning tea was held last week officially starting Christmas celebrations. Lots of selections of pastries, sausage rolls, chips, dips and cake were there to choose from. The cake was decorated with Santa’s reindeers and a Christmas tree as well.

Also on Wednesday, we went to our first dinner after work. It was bowling followed by dinner. Had great fun. Then on Friday there was a big dinner organised for the whole 200+ staffs. So many people to know and mingle with 🙂 .. I am going for one more dinner tomorrow and there will be a few more lunches and morning teas before we officially close on 23 December for 10 days to reopen on 2nd January 2012. Looking forward to the break. Time to relax and unwind.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!
