Such is Sydney!

It's a Tuesday afternoon, and it's also the Melbourne Cup day. I betted on a horse called Blue Monday, but a horse called Efficient won. Never been lucky when it comes to money *sigh*

So at 3, we went down to the cafe where they'd put up two giant projectors where we could all watch the race. And champagne, wine, and beer flowed. And all sorts of food waiting to be eaten. And this is work :-)

Now remind me why I don't mind losing $5 betting on the wrong horse? :D

(Also check out the new 'About me' section. That's from the poem called 'Phenomenal Woman' by Maya Angelou. I've never found a poem that describes me better.)

What crap! One thing I'll really miss about Sydney are the beers - they're way better than our Kingfishers and RCs..

Mizo woman who bets on horse in Sidney will loose something Down Under... hihi

I love that one... :-D

the 'about me' poetry's really cool... :-D

Jerusha said...

mac - I've read it, i always feel like it's a plagiarised version of that poem by Tennyson (?) - 'I know why the caged bird beats his wings...etc etc' I would've probably liked it if I hadn't read that poemj before...(I don't think it was tennyson after all...)

apate - rawn hihi ker ker suh, cocktail lam in ka nun a tibuai lo tih kha lo ring nghet phot mai rawh! :)
