During my Obstetrics & Gynaecology rotation, I was often leaving the house before 6am in order to be at the hospital in time for 8am. It was a drag, but some things made it worth it. The fact that I got a bit more exercise, since I was walking approximately 7km everyday to and from the train stations. Rediscovering all my favourite songs on my iPod. Since most of my travel is with Michael, I always preferred chatting in his company rather than listening to music. Walking by myself was actually quite a nice and relaxing change of scenery, something I used to know so well but had become unfamiliar to in the last few years.
And little moments with nature you experience. Like this possum carrying her young one across an electric wire:
And beautiful skies like these over my head
On April 11, we attended The Dashounds’ Kids Again EP launch at The Hideaway. The Dashounds consist of our two friends James Fielding and Pete Dixon, as well as Bas Pelly and Steve Ceccato.
A Brisbane based, indie/pop/acoustic band, here is a quick blurb from their Facebook page:
The Dashounds have supported Josh Pyke,The Resin Dogs, and shared Festival stages with Regurgitator, Boy and Bear and many more. They played at the Caxton Seafood Fest and the Red Deer Music Fest in 2010, ’11 and ’12 to packed audiences of happy tail waggin’, raindropping fans. The ‘Hounds have recorded two EPs (available on iTunes). They are best known for their vibrant multi-layered vocal harmonies, dynamic acoustic pop anthems, and quirky lyrics about girls, dogs and their beloved home town of Brisbane.
A really fun and great night with amazing performances by the guys.
CLICK HERE to visit triple j Unearthed and check out some of their tracks, even download! You are missing out though, because the recordings simply cannot capture the sound and energy of their live performances!
Bought a hardcopy, can you see the outfit similarities? 😉
Despite a busy rotation, we did get out once in a while! About to head out for some yummy dim sum at New Shanghai with Yoni and Xuan in this photo.
This was also the night we discovered a dish called “Deep fried calamari coated with salted egg yolk” Deliciously crunchy, rich and salty dish that was extremely well received by all of us!
Girls day out with Christine, Fiona, Kristen and the cute Abigail on April 13th!
Started with a lovely breakfast at Samson and Sophie Cafe in Teneriffe, followed by a walk along the river that ended with a drizzle and left us at the Old Museum enjoying tea and each other’s company for a little while longer… oh no! 😉
As babies often command, and being as cute as Abbey is, she was definitely the centre of attention!
Not often are the 4 of us in the same place at the same time, so it was lovely seeing them all and catching up!
And my sad attempt at photographing the Blood Moon night of April 15th. 😛
