The Corroboree Last Week

First, the word "corroboree" comes from the Australian word to explain different genres of performance which in the northwest of Australia include balga, wangga, lirrga, junba, Bardi Ilma and many more. It is an appropriated English word that has been reappropriated to explain a practice that is different from ceremony and more widely inclusive than theatre or opera. source : Wikipedia

For Raimie, he went to a Bangsar/Pudu Zone Boy Scout Corroboree last week. A 3days 2 nights camping trip.
He came back with a tan. Earned a few more badges. Plus becoming more "manja" after his return. He told me he misses his Mommy. Aww....

Though he is a bit unhappy that we went to Hilton KL and met Lisa Surihani when he was away! LOL

When the Son is away, the parents went out and play! HAHAHA

  8. Many times i did compare you both with my parents on child upbringing. I actually like much of your ways as I am not very close with my father. Maybe it is because you only one very precious handsome son to dot on. I was probably a spare tyre at home.

  9. I always thought that Australia has the most funny and weird names too. Have you heard of Wollongong, Geelong, Kurrajong, Mullumbimby, Mittagong, Molong, Grong Grong, Goondiwindi … Cabramatta, Parramatta, Wangaratta, Coolangatta??
