Oh its nice to be Home.

They say home is where you lay your hat. Perhaps.

Home is not just the place you lay your hat, but the people and family around you. And of course the life you create for yourself. Even though Lulu and I called London home for almost 2 years, home has still been Australia where our families are.

Its good to be home to catch up with our families and friends... and we do miss our friends back in London too! After 2 years my nieces are now 2.5 and 2 years old. I'm happy to report back that Kaitlyn (the 2.5 year old) hasn't forgotten me or Lulu!!

Its a bird! Its a plane.. No its super....

Jaikoo cracks me up... Not just because he loves to do voices, or has a great sense of humour, but also because he looks like Dean Cain (from the "Louis and Clark" Superman TV series). Checking out his latest blog he had this pic from his Flickr album:



If that isn't a superman pose I don't know what is!! hahaha.. Mate hurry to oz. We would love a bit of superhero help in fighting those killer koalas, and boxing kangaroos!!

Sign of the times...

Its 1am in Hong Kong... and the Melbourne fireworks is already available for download.... hahaha.. Some people need to get out more...

Speaking of which why am I online?!?!?

Oh yeah I know why... We went down to the harbour and waited with the scant few who were there. Not the throngs of people like in Sydney.

Tick tock.. and midnight came.

Blink.

Yes I missed it. Camera ready on tripod. Remote shutter release in hand.

Blink.

I only realise it was after midnight because some people actually noticed one of the buildings on the far side of the harbour had a count down. There were no fireworks. No shazam. No kaboom. No excitement. I suppose Chinese New Year is the one to watch for!.

Damn.. I wont be in HK for that!

Ironically.. 3 hours before we were walking down Mong Kok, I was pricing camera equipment, and the large screen tv's had Sydney's fireworks going on the news reports. hahaha.

*sigh* miss those fireworks.

BTW. I'll blog about our adventures in getting to HK later.
