It has been rough for the last few days and my emotions has been going haywire! Only few people knows and it is a long story … Not worth venting on this blog. Anyway, today is my birthday and I turn a year younger. I have decided that is “ME” day so I made the decision for what we can do today. I had my early birthday present which was a Nikon D5200 Twin Kits and of course it is black, along with backpack and tripod. I will pick up the Flash Speedlight, spare battery, and UV lens next week then I am set for my trip overseas.
This morning, we went to our favourite cafe, New Farm Deli for brunch. I enjoyed it very much and we popped over to Tabs to put our bets on the horse. I normally don’t gamble and this is my first gamble of my own since I became legal to gamble. I don’t think I will do it again as it conflicts with my personal value. The following horse that I bet on was:
- Green Moon
- Red Cadeaux
- Mount Athos
When that was done, we were on my merry way to Boondall Wetlands. It was a lovely day for bushwalking. We decided to do Billai dhagun Circuit (Place of She-oaks) 2 kilometres and approximately 1 hour walk … really? No it took us almost 2 hours because we were taking photos and practising nature photographing. Oh what fun it was to play with my new camera. Evidence provided!
Awesome photos taken at Boondall Wetland. I also created my very first VLog with my camera.
We headed home in time for the Melbourne Cup race … So we watched the race and being anxious whether we won our horses or not … Well, I won, all three out of four horses. I was shocked. Then I headed to the Tab at Salisbury Hotel. To check in my winning. I though oh maybe $50 or $100 … So I put the ticket into the machine – the tab guy’s eye raised and looked at me … I was like what? So I leaned a little to have a look at the screen … WOAH!!! I wasn’t expecting that much money!! A total of $925.15! This will definitely go to my travel fund!! What a perfect way to add to my birthday celebration.
Now I will just get ready for my birthday dinner at Jade Buddha tonight.
