Kangaroo & Koala

Hehe, I may not be a world traveller like the princess, but this past year I do get my little fair share of travelling. For a couch potato like me, I don't really know if I should be excited or worried. We will be leaving for Australia tonight to join my sister's family, who is taking a month long tour of 'Kangaroo Land' and 'Home of Lord of the Rings', aka New Zealand.

At first, I was thinking of a relaxing trip lounging around the pool, maybe visiting the Opera House, feed my craving for Chinese food and then lots of shopping of course!

But apparently the young ones and those young-at-heart members in my travelling group have a different idea. They plan to 'find Nemo' under the Great Barrier Reefs, 'hunt for King Kong' deep in the Daintree Rain Forest, 'counting stars' at midnight on the boat deck in Cairns and who knows maybe take a bungee dive off whatever suicide bridge they can find! So out it goes the fancy dress and high heels from my lugguage, it's sweats and aqua shoes this time :( I just hope I still have enough strength to crawl back to Tokyo, HELP!!!!

See you in 2 weeks, take care, my dear sisters!

Dear Jaime:
I hope you and your family members will have a good time in Australia and New Zealand. Besides all the fun things you are doing, I hope you will meet the oldest aborigines in the world, -- you cannot find anyone like them anywhere else -- whose culture developed continuously for 20,000 years in Australia. While in New Zealand, it is also fun to greet the oldest tribes with their traditional nose to nose kiss.
Have fun.

Have a nice trip, Jaime. Hope you'll enjoy yourself so much that your smile will be as big as YJ's in the 3 photos.

Wishing you & your family a wonderful time down under. You can do away with the shopping(honestly, I do not know how you're gonna fight the temptation, hehehehhe!)but do not forget the different pain killers & assorted plasters for foot ailments! :)

Enjoy the trip & pictures, pictures & more pictures!

Love, Judy

Dear Jaime and Bae Sisters:
Shall we all pray with the word of God -- "By Thy stripes, I am healed" for the full and continuous recovery of Bae Yong Joonssi from his recent shoulder operation. May the angels hover over him and protect him from harm. May Jesus Christ accompany him in his journey through pain and suffering towards good health and a renewed life.
Praise and Thanks be to God to whom all the power, glory and honor belongs.
