Good Friday

Yesterday was my very first time celebrating Easter at Phoebe's place. We supposed have our groceries shopping on Good Friday BUT we totally forgotten that all shops were closed on that day! Kelly was last minute bought the LAST two packs of pork ribs at Coles. Phew! That's possible turn out instant noodle for our main meals if all the pork ribs sold out in the supermarket. 

Kelly made marinated pork ribs which taste absolutely nice. I baked zucchini fries and sweet potatoes with bacon, spring onions and sour cream. Seems like most of them like the baked sweet potatoes! For desserts, DC made his favourite trifle.  Cudos to Phoebe first time attempted making Matcha mousse which turned out not too bad, just the fact that it tastes weird when greek yogurt is part of the ingredients. Not to forget, the Matcha sponge cake looks so pretty and decorated by Kelly.

Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show #1

Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show (MIFGS) 2013 was just happened on last week for four days consecutively. 

While... 

Finally, I have the motivation to edit the photo taken when I attended this festival on LAST YEAR, 2012. 

I was too fascinated about the flowers, the colours, the smell, and guess what I took more than 300 hundred photos on that day itself! So, I have to split into two posts instead of combining into one. The entrance fee cost $25 (adult price), Concession $19 for students, but for me, it was worth it especially for the first time visitor. The scale of this event was really huge considering it was held in Carlton Garden and The Royal Exhibition building. After 18 years, it still remains the biggest annual flower and garden show in the Southern Hemisphere.

This kind of "head vases" in the garden is horrible scary. I'm pretty sure if I have this in my garden, I will freak out whenever I see it especially at night !

It's interesting to know roses could named as Mother's Love and not to forget Father's love.
Mother's Love is named to supports the Nursing Mother's Association of Australia, it says as beautiful and as pure as a mother's love.
