New Zealand Holiday

Hello people,
Haven't been on in ages!! Since I last wrote, we've been holidaying in New Zealand for 2 weeks!

This picture is at Rotarua. It smelt HORRIBLE! Look at my brothers expression, his top pulled over his face. I said I never wanted to go there again! But I think I might. :)

Obsession with kitchen pics!

These are some pictures of our kitchen appliances.
I just love the one of the mixer! It's taken below the actual thing to make it look bigger and more artistic.
Mum hasn't used the grounding thing yet. She has had it for nearly 2 years I think.
Hehe :)

Springwood pool

This is Springwood pool from the sidelines. Its the best pool I've been to. It has a great slide (the yellow thing) and can you see the red circle underneath it?  the water around that is a whirl pool! The water pushes you around the circle, which makes trying to swim against it, very challenging. Other than that pool, there is the usual lap swimming pool which, the day I went, had a rock climbing wall coming out of the water! it looked so fun, but we don't have any pictures of that sorry. 
Can you see two people at the top of the slide? Well one of them is me! Yep, I'm waiting for the person in-front of me to get to the bottom before I can go down the slide. 
Well I've got to go now. Until the next post,

Sydney Swans vs. Collingwood Magpies

The fabulous game of AFL.  At least that's what I thought of after the game was finished. I'm not the biggest fan of AFL, but I did like watching the game live. 

My brother had been learning about the game + playing it with the Nab Auskick program.  At the end of all the lessons, he was given 4 tickets to see Sydney Swans play against Collingwood Magpies.

He was overly excited as was the rest of the family, excluding me. At that moment I'd had the better idea of spending the first day of holidays shopping, but NO. We went to my brothers soccer game down in Penrith somewhere, then travelled to Sydney to waste the time we had before the 7:10 game! So we went to look at Ikea and dream of buying everything! Well, at least that was what I was doing...

We had lunch there and looked around the shopping centre attached to it. We went to the news-agency to get our monthly magazines, then wondered what to do in the 3 more hours we had to kill. 

We were all going to sit in the car and read our magazines, but I suggested that we drive to a quiet park and then read our magazines. So we did just that. We stayed there and read our books until the sun was gone and buses were driving past packed with Swans fans sitting in it. 

It was still only 10 to 6, so we were going to get some sushi before we went to the stadium. But as we started driving on the highway, the traffic began. So we didn’t get sushi and just drove to the stadium.

It was just as well that we didn’t get sushi, because by the time we got to our seats, the game began!

As exciting as the game was, Collingwood beat the Swans. L It was a great day after all.

CrAzY iN-LoVe!

I'm just so crazy for fashion at the moment! I can't get enough of shopping either! 

We went shopping yesterday and the day before that for winter clothes, but I still feel the need to shop. One thing that I want to do after I've finished school is to go and see fashion week in Paris! I've always wanted to see the fashion for my-self and not by looking in magazines and websites. I like to design clothes, so I'm doing Textiles next year. Hopefully that will help boost my "career" in fashion! 
But for now I'm still dreaming of when my collection will be walking down the runway. *sigh* 
A girl can dream.

A view of Katoomba street

Katoomba Street is a very happening place!  The picture above, the one with the fat post and pictures on it, is an advertising post. It was put there for people who want to advertise things like concerts and new things coming up. It's much better than places in Sydney. There, there's just random posters on beautiful buildings! This is much more practical. 
The top photo, is showing the shop signs on the left side of Katoomba Street. Not all of them though. There is the town clock going across the road. I don't think we've got a picture of it though.....
Oh wait! Yes, there is one....

Winter magic galore!

Each year in Katoomba (Blue Mountains), a festival called the Winter Magic is held. It's a crazy place to be. People walk around dressed up like wizards and fairies and pirates, I could go on all day with the crazy things people wear because its the one day people can walk around the road in what ever they want and no-one will even lay an eye on them! The fact is that the Winter Magic is a magical day. There are stalls going right down the street. From CD's to book's to clothes to ice cream. There are people busking on every corner and people getting their faces painted. 

One of our friends works in a shop on the main street where the festival is held. She had a stall in front of the shop she works in. She had dressed up as a pirate!
