Beautiful Sydney!

Vivid Sydney is a festival of "Lights, Music and Ideas", running from 23rd of May till 9th of June this year.

It's a beautiful yearly event and really worth checking out - even in the cold winter weather!!

The Graduate Lifecycle

There is no such thing as "greener grass on the other side".
The entire field is just brown with soil.
But if you plant enough seeds, maybe you'll come back to find that patch of grass out there one day.

The Opal Card Experience

Those in Sydney using the Opal card can probably feel some empathy to this situation.  It really astounds me how after all these years, we've finally implemented a contactless ticketing system and yet even though technology has progressed so much, our "smartcard" is oh so smart, but

Okay, maybe I am being a bit picky here (it is only a 2-second delay after all), but really, take Hong Kong for example - the Octopus card is really one of the most impressive I've come across.  Not only can you use it on public transport, but you can also buy groceries with it, plus a whole lot more!  We still have a lot to learn Australia...

Happy Mother's Day

Depending on which country you live in, Mother's Day is celebrated at different times in the year.

In Australia and most other countries, it is usually the second Sunday of May.

Father's Day on the other hand, is celebrated on the first Sunday of September in Australia, which is different to most of the other countries typically celebrating it in June.

But no matter which day, we should always be thankful to our parents.  If they're able to show us love everyday, then we shouldn't need a marketed occasion to show them how much we love them too. :)
