Into the Woods

Last Saturday,  we went for a short roadtrip to Adelaide Hills, from Flagstaff hill, Chandlers hill, Clarendon to Meadows was a beautiful scenic drive until we reached Kuitpo Forest Reserve where we are going to walk/hike. The weather forecast was 80% raining in the afternoon but it doesn't stop us to go, once we agreed to go, there's no buts, it's rather do or die or now or never πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

The afternoon was really beautiful, the sun is out and not promising to rain. We arrived in the forest, it looks a bit busy with many cars on parking. More bike riders were present on the entrance getting ready for the bike trail. The forest were planted with tall pine trees everywhere. Some has experienced bush fires during the hot summer days. As we keep walking we saw some wild mushrooms scattered in every part of the forest trail, was amazed to see the red color with white dots mushroom, I only saw this color on a decorative mushroom ornament but these ones are real.








The forest was peaceful and quite but a bit spooky if it's dark and your alone walking πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ.  There's left and right turn trail but there's no sign or direction where it is heading. As we keep walking we found some trail heading to a lookout, what a beautiful view, there's also a trail going down to reach the campground. We stayed there for a while to enjoy the view while listening to music and other friends were dancing on the beat.



We tried to head back down because the sky is getting so dramatic and dark, signal that rain is slowly starting to pour. I think another 45 mins to go back, we are concern that we will catch the rain but not worrying much if we get wet πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ


It was very windy and cold, we can see the pine trees were swaying sideways thinking it will break. We are closer to the ground when we saw some small branches of pine tree fell on the ground, and one tree is about to break and bending so we are alarmed to walk faster, but our friend Lemon don't care and still dancing as he walks.


The trail had finished and as we arrive in the carpark, the rain just litterally pour and we are so lucky not to get caught by the rain while we are still walking.

It was fun and another adventurous day for us. 

Winter Blues

When I'm feeling blue, all I have to do, is take a look at you then I'm not so blue.πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ 

Are you feeling confused, sad, complicated or lonely? That' not me (haha) before I used to but not now, sometimes I admit I still feel those kinds of emotions, but I'm very good to handle those feelings as I know they're just negative thoughts that will make me really feel blue, as in bluer than blue.πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ I just share about my feelings, or talk to a good friend about it, then I'm fine, sometimes it's matter of inhale and exhale is the solution (lol). Those are the feelings that shouldn't last in a persons heart or mind because it affects our health, ability to deal the situation and we can't do much activities. 

So that's why if your feeling blue, make it green (lol) my fave color. Divert your mind and heart to something useful, cheerful and productive. Like catch up your friends, go for a walk, do some gardening, watch movies, karaoke, play sports, actually those are the things I do, except for cooking πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ or do the hobbies you like.

I thought I feel sad today, maybe sad and maybe not (haha) see I'm making you all confused, but I just realise I'm just lazy (lol) to get up on bed and be productive. I did end up jumping out of bed but very  late afternoon already, and I have been to the shop to get something, got more potting mix for planting more succulents and hanging plants, I've cooked chorizo for dinner, it's pan fry only so it's easy one (lol) while chatting to my mum and her friend on messenger. Sort of productive day as well, isn't it?

Anyway, hope you all had a lovely weekend and keeping warm on this cold weather.

Just sharing photos of my Daisy flowers and succulent arrangement.

A Walk to Remember

With my very close friend. Have we known each other since 2009? I can't remember the actual months, I'm just even guessing the year. We've met on my workplace πŸ€” Since day one you've been nice to me, invite me to your house and have a meal, your a good listener, easy going, a walking buddy. You're one of the few friends that is very loyal, can be trusted, and was always there present for me from day one that I've known you. You go out all the way even sometimes your tired from work or still make time before going to work to be present on special occasion. 

You're there especially when I'm at my saddest day and downfall moments of my life when I infact don't expect it. I'm so grateful for you and your husband, and of course the other friends not to mention, because this blog is for You. 

I didn't expect you will go down all the way to be there for me to get me through that couple days. What else I can ask for? God gave me this kind of friend whom I can heartily and openly share everything from all my craziness, happiness especially the sadness, from personal, emotional and spiritual aspect of my life we get along. 

We had a very nice walk yesterday, it's coincidence that our days off are the same, again your there to listen to me in any concern, that I may not able to share to other friends but your  ear is always ready to absurb all my silly and funny stories especially to the many changes in my life that I'm facing, you give me some piece of advice and word of wisdom. 

Thanks so much for being you, for being there for me. And for the lunch treat yesterday because I purposely left my purse in your car because I don't want to carry while we're walking. The meal we ordered looks weird and we were confused how it looks like, but it was tasty and delicious, we've tried something new. 

We did a very long and slow walking yesterday because of our interesting chats. Next time it's my treat.. 🀣🀣

I don't know what little things I contribute in your life, but I'm just letting you know I'm always here if you need me, we are like a crying ladies sometimes but one time I've realised you cried easily compare to me. 🀣🀣🀣

Lablab you, 
Romina

Fear Not for I'm With You


Yes, I have lots of fear and scary moment within myself. I have fear in heights, under water, fear to cross the road with no traffic lights, fear to turn right when driving especially there's no arrow sign, easily get jumpy or nervous when the light changed from green to yellow 😊

I'm lucky, I motivate myself to learn how to drive, since I have phobia when I'm on the road. Just a beep or horn of a car I get startled, you got to laugh sometimes. I don't like a sudden noise if it's all quite. My sister and I sometimes just laugh when it's very quite at home especially when I'm by myself and suddenly she will appear in front me, I easily get startled and tell her off why she just appear without a warning, I'm contagious that if I shout, she will shout as well then we both laugh. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Now writing this makes me laugh alone like crazy...

What else? There's still random scary stuff that I feel sometimes πŸ˜‚, funny isn't it? Do you have fear in your life too or get scared of? I hope not the same as mine because it doesn't feel right haha.

The good thing is I've learnt how to conquer most of my fear. With motivation and encouragement of myself and people around me I slowly overcome them. 

The fear of heights was the one I've overcome. Few years ago, I ride on 800 meters zip line and this year January  I did underwater  helmet diving. I feel so nervous and scare, with me having negative thoughts that I might fall in the water and get drown and I will die because I don't know how to swim hahaha just acting like a child, but then I have the motivation to do it, thinking "If Others Can Do, Why Can't I" that's the spirit😊 and then I've made it and it's fun, adventurous and  beautiful experience that I may say one day, I did it.

All I can say is that the more you have stronger faith in God, the more you become fearless and let it go of the negative thoughts,  you are in God's hand, He will protect you and not harm you, just surrender all your burdens to Him and accept him as your Saviour and He will be with You in all you do. 

Now I'm happily living life with less worry, less fear and less stress. I just enjoy life as if it's always my last day. 😊

So Many Questions but the Answers are too Few.

It's been 13 months. Is it the right time to move on and keep moving? Does it need to have length of time to find a new love again? Can I just treasure all the memories and put aside the past experience? Can I create a new memories again with You? Am I deserved to be happy again? To love and be loved again? Do I need to compare? Of course not. Will there is someone out there that will make my heart beat again? Will there be someone who can accept me for who I am?

All I know is that I think, it's time for me to move on and welcome someone to come into my life. I don't know if I'm ready but I'm willing to make a new life, create new memories and hope to find someone I can share my life with. They said "Love is more sweeter the second time around". I know he will be happy for me in any situation of my life, no matter what it is or who it is I will be sharing my life with.
It's a big changed and adjustment but I know I can handle it as long as I will always use my heart wisely and allow it to share with the man I may meet along the way.

I just hope that whoever you Are, You will accept me and understand the life experience I've been through. Now I'm opening my heart to you, I'm ready to fall inlove again 😊. I will be more careful and loving person. I've learnt a very good lesson in life in relationship matter after all I've overcome the situation I am in.

I'm here now, Where are You?
