Good Eye Might!

" If you're lost and alone
Or you're sinking like a stone.
Carry on.
May your past be the sound
Of your feet upon the ground.
Carry on. "


It's a sun shiny Monday morning. Good day mate ( " good eye might " ) !

A Trip to Vinnie's

Vinnies is an organization who helps and assists those in need which are then funded by donations and by holding fundraising. They accept donations whether in monetary or in goods. They sell the donated second-hand goods in several Vinnie’s retail  shops around Australia. And I , myself is also in need. I need a brand new start and some kitchen wares. For someone who’s starting on a new place,  and for someone who doesn’t buy things in full price ( as much as possible) , a trip to Vinnies, i must say, a smart move.  It's not only good for my pocket but also good for those supported by the foundation. Definitely a win-win situation, yah?!

As I entered the shop, I was flabbergasted with the items showcased. They were all beautiful and still in good condition at a reasonably low cost.

Thanks to the Filipino who donated this shirt.

I am forever a " One Tree Hill " fan, if only I could fit in this tiny T.

This looks pretty and dainty. But naaah, dolls like these creep me out. Blame it to Chuckie. 

I went home with 4 correll plate, and a couple of glasses that matches my plates.

A mug that comes with a teaspoon for my coffee or tea.  

A dozen of clothes hanger for a dollar.  Sorry, I forgot to take photos. I used them already. But I tell you, they were pretty in pink.
Not bad yah! Smart buy.

I’ll be moving in days, and I hope there’ll be a Salvo or Vinnie’s nearby.  Salvos , Vinnie’s and second hand shops excites me, especially those who sells vintage items.  Other than shopping at a low price, chances are, rarely would you bump someone wearing the same thing as you compared to those on department stores.

First Day in the Land Down Under

First day in the land down under. The family so warm and welcoming whom  I’m staying with temporarily showed me around the suburb of Oz. 

We strolled along the You (not me) , You Yangs Regional Park. Its peaks is of granite  . They have a park for picnics; trails for mountain bikers and humongous rocks for rock climbers and abseiler. It’s a scenic and a fresh place to take a hike with friends and family. We climbed to the big rocks overlooking a vast horizon. It was so cold up on the hill I could feel my knees shiver. 

As we drove up farther, we stopped at Werribee Gorg State Park. Still a vast place for hiking or walking. Australians must love walking. Of course I did a photo op of me looking like a date stood me up. Poor thing.

..... as a crow looked down on me with pity.

Then we went to see skippy in Serendip Sanctuary. The renowned kangaroo that Australia is known for.  Serendip is a haven for wild birds and mammals. 


A paparazzo shot of skippy. Terrified to be skipped and stepped on by skippy, so I stayed only at a distance trying to get a zoomed photo from my mobile phone. This is the closest that I got. I hope you can see him/her ( I can’t tell ) camouflaging  from the dried woods and leaves.
