I know I am a day late, but I just want to wish all my fellow Aussies (bloggers, readers, everyone across the country and overseas) a happy belated Straya Day!
I spent the weekend working (boo!), and actually did a 12 hour shift on Australia Day. It was very tiring, but on the up-side, I got to experience the fireworks up-close and personal. The boat I work on was anchored literally around 150m away from where the fireworks were set off on the harbour! It was quite deafening though.
During my lunch break, some of my co-workers and I went and bought froyo, and I tried the lamington flavoured one. If that’s not celebrating Australia in food style (haha kidding), I don’t know what is!
Just to end off the post, I’d like to show you this hilarious buzzfeed post called ‘33 Ways You Know You’re Australian‘. I’m sure most of my fellow Aussies would understand – and for everyone else, it’s still worth checking out for the giggles!
Happy Australia Day!
