Market day

We went to the farmers' market at the Abbotsford Convent today. Did not buy much because we had already gone to the market yesterday and I did not want to carry foodstuff all around for the whole day. We got honey, raisins and almonds though. :D I always enjoy going to these markets not just for the food but also for the nice atmosphere.

There are always dogs of all shapes and sizes at these markets.

We have wonderful views from our balcony.

Whenever the weather is all muddled and it rains and shines (which is not rare here), we get to see big whole rainbows right in front of us. Sometimes even two!

We also get views of fireworks at Federation Square, which is also not rare since there are always celebrations of some sort or other. Today it is Diwali or Deepvali celebrations. The last time it was the Mooncake Festival. It is actually rather multicultural here...

Kid art

We went past the underpass leading to the Esplanade on Thursday on the way to tea. One side of the underpass was all decorated with artworks done by kids. It was a really colourful sight! Here are some of my favourites.

A cute bunny drawing

I really liked the string of dolls all decorated by different kids which lined the entire stretch as a border

Mr Moult

Small Bunny is moulting now so he has this cute patch of fur that is shorter than the rest. He is such a dearie...he's got a really sweet temperament. :) I can brush him all I want and he doesn't grunt like Bobbers the boisterous bunny would.
