Chinese Museum and Mum's return to Malaysia.

Mum just flew back from her 3-month Melbourne trip on Saturday. And so I took a couple of days leave before she left to spend time with her. We did the usual shopping, had afternoon tea together etc. But one of the more significant ones included a trip to the Chinese Museum in the city.

As funny as it sounds, "Chinese visiting a Chinese Museum", I still think that sometimes we need to remember our roots and not forget about our history. In this case it was also about how the chinese from other parts of the world came to live in Melbourne. We were also treated to a Acrobatic, Performing Arts and Magic show which happened to be on that time.

We had a great time that day. There was also a group of kids on a trip and boy were we impressed at them counting numbers in mandarin. One caucasian traveller there also speaked very fluent chinese - I think definitely better than Tubby's!

On the day Mum flew off, we had lunch and decided to head towards the airport earlier to avoid any traffic jams or delays. It was raining and we had tea at Villa Hut at the Essendon DFO. I also managed to quickly snagged a Country Road scarf and a Ralph Lauren Polo tee - courtesy of Tubby. :) Till we meet again in April mum, loving and missing you. *hugs*
