Apparently my four year old niece, Tessa, is obsessed with riddles. The first thing she does when she gets back home from kindergarden nursery is read books on them. Hearing that from my mum on the phone made me crumble. I had totally forgotten, but Chris reminded me that Tessa’s interest in riddles is not a new thing. A year ago, we overheard her saying to herself, (in Japanese) ‘Here is a riddle, what is round?’… ‘An apple!’. Chris and I couldn’t help ourselves from giggling. She was entertaining herself with her own riddles and it was just so cute!


Today, I saw little sisters skipping around at the market and they reminded me very much of Tessa and her old sister Ciara in Japan.


Sisters at the market. Their matching leather shoes were also very pretty.

On the weekend, Chris and I saw a little girl eating two fried eggs at our favorite cafe.


Ever since, we've been having fried eggs for breakfast.

Garden Dreaming

July 23rd, 2012 — 1:21am

Chris’s father visited us two weeks ago so we tried our best to take him to the places we like in Melbourne. The Heide Museum was one of them. The garden was not as colourful as the last time Chris and I visited but the daffodils were blooming everywhere. I was busy learning and day dreaming about how I would plant daffodils in my garden… if I ever have one in the future.


Sadly, I recently crossed out mimosa from my list of plants that I’d one day like in my garden. Even though it seems like I could be allergic to it, I still like it because it reminds me of home.


Daffodils, Heide.

Visiting The Collingwood Children’s Farm was Gen’s recommendation when Chris and I first visited Melbourne, and, it’d been on top of my list of the places I wanted to revisit since moving here. Recently, I found out that we live not too far from the farm so we walked up there last week.


When Chris and I got to the farm, half of the animals were having lunch and the other half were having after lunch naps in the shade. I couldn’t help myself from smiling when I saw a duck dozing off just like people do. I also saw two eggs in a chiken shed, a piggy making a big mess (eating fresh broccoli and cabbage) as another piggy was dozing, a little girl running through muddy puddles, and a sweet cat hanging out with a group of chickens. It’s a healthy, peaceful and beautiful place! I was also happy to see my favorite kind of chicken, the Silkie. I guess I’m a sucker for fluffy things that move.


A sweet welcome.
