Adelaide Festival Northern Lights 26.02-04.04.2010


26th Feb-14th March is the one of the most exciting time to visit Adelaide, SA. Why?? Simply because of the Adelaide Festival that offers a range of entertainment be it theatre, art, shows, for public, …etc. One of the event which caught my attention and it’s FREE was the Northern Lights display and it’s so near to my work place, from the time it’s up, I get to see it every time I walked past North Terrace. I must say it’s one of the most spectacular building art display I have ever seen. I know there’s something similiar in Sydney on the Opera house roof, but to me, seeing the Northern lights in Adelaide is an opportunity NOT TO MISS!!!! Heaps of people walk the north terrace to see them and snap photos. SUddenly North terrace became so popular and full of people from the usual nights!!!!

Lorne conference 11-14th feb 2010

The 1st conference I attended was in Lorne, Victoria, one of the famous coastal town along the FAMOUS Great Ocean Road. How good is that?? haha. Heard my colleagues praising bout the location. I guessed the most exciting part was, my lab colleagues/postdoc and other colleagues from other labs in the department went to the same conference. While some organize their own accommodation but we had Andrew to help get us a FANCY apartment to stay throughout the conference. All in all, it was an informative and relevant conference, gained new knowledge, saw the “people” whose names I have always read on the scientific journal articles. Most important, we all had heaps fun!!!

Night view of Adelaide Torrens river & Elder park Aug 2010

A post long overdue, haha. I have forgotten that I took these photos :)

A stroll through Adelaide’s park is always something nice to do especially through the Torrens river & Elder Park and especially during a nice weather in Spring.

Here’s some shots during an evening walk :)

2010_01_31 St.Peter’s Cathedral, Adelaide

Had this idea of going to church after work or before work on Sunday. Finally managed to force myself to make out some time to do it. It’s actually not too bad an idea if i really can kept it up, haha. Thought I don’t think it will last at all, LOL.

The first church that came into my mind is the St.Peter’s Anglican Cathedral which is located on King William Road and to me, it seems like the biggest church or most stand out church in Adelaide CBD that I have seen and can reach.

To get there from my work place involve walking a 15 mins walk on a normal pace which took me across the Torrens river, a very nice place/garden for walking/relaxing.

SPECTACULAR Maslin beach & Port Willunga 2010_01_26

Who would have thought behind these vast piece of land & hills lies an amazing stretch of beaches!!!!

I have always wanted to come over to this side of the beach, because although publicly less promoted but definitely one of the prettiest beach among the locals.

This is place is much harder to get to than any other places as it is quite far down south of Adelaide, moreover, one has to transit a few times to get here, and it takes 2 hrs ish to get here from my house!!!!

While bashing bit through the scrubs to the beach side, I came upon this pigeon!! I have also wanted to take a good photo of the pigeons here as there are of different breed, look at the head of the pigeon in the picture below, sort of have a lock of hair on top of it :)

The weather at first looks not too good, but somehow the weather looked like they were behind me as I got nearer to the coastal, yeah!!!

It was a PERFECT SUNNY CLEAR BLUE SKY for photo shooting!!! And SUN BATHING!!! haha.
