Exploring South Australia - With Friends


One thing that I loved about Malaysia was that during the years I lived there, a lot of people came on their holiday trips and of course, we enjoyed hosting them. We met so many old friends and made fond memories. When I moved to Adelaide, I knew that I will for sure miss this and that for a long time I will not be hosting any friends! But, we just had our FIRST friends from Malaysia who visited us during the year-end holidays for 3 days and I cant get over the fact that we had so much fun!

New Year Giveaway With Younique Products

Hello Peeps! 

Super excited to collaborate with My Zephyr Lily to run this fun giveaway of selected products from Younique. I recently tried these products and was in love with the classy packaging and superior quality. 

My favourite products are the Moonstruck Splash Liquid Lipstick which is super pigmented and has a very smooth and matte finish. Coupled with Moonstruck Precision Lip Pencil (which is definitely precise and very soft), creates long-lasting colour on lips. 

Moonstruck Epic Mascara is like a magic wand. I love how it is clump free while adding volume and length. 

I decided to gift these three favourites as a new year present to one lucky winner through an easy and simple giveaway. 

Giveaway starts on 15th December 2017 to 31st December 2017. The winner will be announced on the 1st January 2018! 

Rules are really simple! please read them carefully.

The 'Constants' - Old & New

Last night, hubby displayed his work for the first time in Adelaide. He was one of the 30 photographers chosen for Project Street 7:30. All the photographers got together at 7:30am and did street photography in Adelaide's city centre. One best photograph of each participating photographer was selected, printed and exhibited at 7:30pm at one of the best printing labs in Adelaide, Atkins Pro Lab. Every print was auctioned later in the night to generate money for charity.

The exhibition was open to public, friends and family. We had a rocking night. The work displayed was very diverse. It was an amazing experience for hubby who beamed with happiness on working with fellow photographers! MashAllah.

This photograph is one of the many Ahsan took for this project. He selected a different one to display but this stole my heart. So, I stole it from him for this post.

Monthly Journal

Monthly series which is round-up of activities of the month. Casual, brief and very random.

Hard for me to believe that November is over and I am stepping into the last month of 2017. Where did this year go? So much happened in this year that I think I just lost track of time. I am beginning to believe that it is a good thing and not a sign of ageing!

Fresh apples because I have started to daily have a fruit or two at work. And some fruit yoghurt instead of snacks that I used to munch on non-stop

Adelaide Christmas Pageant

South Australia is known as the 'Festival State' and it is said that around 500 festivals and events happen here yearly! It includes all big and small events. Yesterday, we attended Christmas Pageant which is a parade held annually in South Australia since 1933 on every second Saturday of November. I did not know how big a deal it is! Colourful and vibrant (almost never-ending) procession of floats, clowns, performers and volunteers walk a 3.35km route in Adelaide's city centre.  People start gathering since 7am to find best spots to view the parade which starts around 9:30 am. It is like a giant picnic where everyone's invited.

When we reached around 9, all the spots were already taken! There was an atmosphere of happiness and festivity and a smile on everyone's face. Children were having a ball as they got to draw and scribble on the road with coloured chalks while they waited. 

I went live on the blog's Facebook page here or you can enjoy some of my favourite photographs in this post. All photographs are taken by Ahsan Qureshi Photography
