Spring has sprung

spring has sprung

and that means

goodbye coats, hello spaghetti straps

goodbye soups, hello fresh salads

goodbye boots, hello thongs

goodbye skivies, hello tank tops

But I say spring calls not only for change of fashion and food choices. It also is an opportunity to come out of inactivity brought about by winter. It is a time to rise and shine. Being a pre-cursor to summer, it is the best time to start losing pounds and be ready to show fab abs and not flabs.

With noticeably longer and warmer days, it would be much easier to stay outdoors.Makybe Diva - the first thoroughbred to win the Melbourne Cup three times - in 2003, 2004 & 2005. Time to take out the barbie and gather all friends and rellies.

And oh, spring is also the season of big events around Melbourne. There’s the Royal Melbourne Show, the Melbourne International Arts Festival, the Melbourne Fringe Festival, and best of all, the Aussie Rules Footy Finals and Spring Racing Carnival which includes the Melbourne Cup – the celebration that stops the nation.

But with the equine flu outbreak, I hope the spring racing wouldn’t be affected as much.

Or better yet, just come visit this beautiful cosmopolitan city.

  1. I love spring! done with donning about four clothes at a time… 🙂

    Ei, the horse flu outbreak might not affect the Melbourne Cup at all! 🙂 but the blaming game starts and the “rolling heads” phenomenon will certainly follow along with the series of court proceedings against the government. lovely. eheheh!
