Lake Perseverance, Qld.

Date: 14 March 2015

Visited Lake Perseverance while on our way to Lake Cressbrook.

Got excited at the first sight of the blue lake, so we stopped by the road to take some pictures. Not a brilliant idea though, kind of dangerous! But awesome snap, right? :-

Just a few metres ahead was the picnic area with a much safer photo opportunities... *Feeling duhhh...*

Anyways, another dam checked in!

Crows Nest National Park, Qld.

Date: 7 March 2015

Went for a late afternoon bush walk at Crows Nest NP.

Ok, my pose is gross but this is the only picture with the signboard. 

The walking track to the waterfall was fairly easy for my 3YO, can be a bit long.

We only managed to visit The Cascades as the other 2 swimming spots were a bit tough to reach for Kimi. The creek was filled up with water (yeay!) and this is such a lovely view. During warmer months, the creek is usually dried up.

Less than an hour, we finally reached the waterfall but despite the rainy weather a few days back, the fall was barely there. And we spotted 2 dudes swimming even though warning signs clearly prohibited any swimming at this specific water hole.

Suggested to Hasben that we continue to the lookout of the Valley of Diamonds, which was another 900m. Suggestion rejected! So we turned around and head back to the car park. Which was a good decision, I was getting very tired... Where did my stamina go?!

P/S: Back home in Malaysia, my lil bro Am was getting engaged. Wished I was there :-(

JuZie the Barber!

Amazing how the need to survive forces a person to develop skills they never thought they could master. And in my case, hair-cutting skills, level 1. Malaysian males generally get their hair cut by mamak barbers for RM10 while Australian males get their hair done in saloons for approximately $20 (=RM60!). Me with hijab could not care less about this, unlike facials and massages, which I so terribly miss.

Anyways, I have attended (browsed through) YouTube classes for male hair styling and have been cutting Hasben's hair for 3 years now. We usually do it in front of the house for the neighbours to see... Haha.

Even Kimi gets his hair cut for free... And you can easily tell since his hair is straight, meaning it is pretty hard to hide flaws.

I even tried the Pompadour hairstyle on Hasben, just to be a bit more adventurous. The result was not what I had in mind but it is comparable to Ozil the football star. So yeah, I'm awesome! 

Did you know that plastic bag clips make decent hair clips? They do... 

So now, I don't just cook, bake, clean and sew, I cut hair too. Even I'm surprised!
