Yesterday I went the to perth royal show and had an absolute blast! I went with a big group but just chilled with Marian, Jith and Mel for the main part of the day and met with many random people throughout the day! It was so fun!
Lots of things happening! Food, people, performances and not forgetting SHOWBAGS!!!!! Hahaha! I think that is the main reason why I went... For the showbags! I love them! I love looking at them! We walked for the whole day but I only got one bag... haha! I used ALL my will power not to buy any of the lollie ones! hehehe! So I didn't spend so much money that day! The rest was on food! And the food was SOOOO ex! haha! U would expect it cause they capitalise on that... But would could not fall in love with carnival food?? All the unhealthy-ness of it! LOL!
I think the highlight of the day was the fireworks... It was the last big thing for the day and what a surreal experience! So close I could almost touch it and really not exaggerating RIGHT before my eyes! I don't think I've understood the present moment better then and there... Why? Cause when the fireworks started< I sat up and took pictues of them exploding! So in effect, I was looking at them through the little LCD screen on my digital camera... And soon my camrea ran out of memory and thank God it did! Cause while I was sitting there freaking out... I realised... Here I am sitting in front of this GORGEOUS display and not experiencing it properly... I was trying to take pictures of it to preserve the memory but how could I preserve it if i didn't experience it properly?? So I put my camera down and i sat there to truly experience the fireworks. I sat in awe for the next 5-10minutes as the fireworks exploded and popped in the sky creating a muriel of beautiful colours and shapes! And I felt to star struck and gobsmacked as I just stared into the sky... WOW... It really was a beautiful moment and the pictures will be temporary... but the momory will stay in my head for the rest of my life... And I am glad I sat back and really revelled in that present moment! :)
