Blog on Mobile

I had rejected the use of Internet connectivity in mobile devices for quite a long time. Now that I am forced to use one, I could see why I need to make this blog mobile-friendly. My photos are so damn big that it can eat up one's mobile data limit.

So with the help of templates, I am able to make this site mobile-friendly. If you are using a computer and you want to see how it looks like on a mobile phone, click here.

First House Stage One

Since Steven and I have been together, we have been talking about a new house. We are not really happy living in a unit because we have to deal with neighbours who do not show respect to other tenants. Living in a unit also forces us to use a laundromat (so tedious) and be petless.

We have spent so many months looking for a house that we can afford and we can be happy with. We have had very long discussions on what we really wanted and we actually almost bought a house.

But then the South Australian government announced that they will reward grants to people who have chosen to build a house. So we gave up on the several houses that we have been eyeing and grabbed a house and land package.

After dozens of emails and hours of phone calls, we managed to buy land very close to where we are right now. It is not very big but it will be enough for two men, a dog and a few citrus plants.

Here is the panoramic photo of the property. In less than a year, you will see a black and white home built in this area. Just click on the thumbnail to view the entire photo.

Adelaide Pride Parade 2012

I was ecstatic that Steven offered to be in this year's pride parade and I think he had a great time. We joined our group and followed the dress code and marched around Adelaide's CBD.

After the not-so-long parade, we went to Chinatown and stuffed ourselves. I was bloated when we left the dumping place.

We also met some friends for drinks afterwards.

Anyway, I roamed around during the preparation of the parade and here are the shots.

Steven's fourth year anniversary gift

My partner knows that I really really want to have a Christmas tree but he had been postponing buying one until we moved in to a house. We also live in a small unit so it is sensible not to have something big and practically useless occupy a space in our home.

But we have been together for four years and he thought of thinking out of the box. So I came home and was greeted by a sparkling Christmas tree.
