Cathy / October 24, 2017

When I was pregnant with my firstborn, I was overwhelmed with the millions of baby products available on the market. And being a first-time mom at that, finding the best products (and worth-buying) was like finding needles in a haystack. Well, two years after, I know better.

It’s springtime! And one of the best festivals in Melbourne during springtime is the Tesselaar Tulip Festival. This year, the tulips bloomed late. Around mid-September, I followed the farm’s Instagram account to keep updated about the tulips’ progress.

Cathy / September 28, 2017

The Melbourne Winter Night Market is extended until the 4th of October. Glad we still made it even though it’s now spring 🙂 Going to the night market during the winter would have been very cold.
