First time tennis was great even though me and Annika (also a tennis virgin) didn't always hit the ball. (Sorry kids playing a more serious game next to us!).
After running around for one hour on the court in the burning hot 33 degrees Orrong Park Tennis court sun, we were exhausted and my face was lobster red. Need a tennis teacher next time to play by actual rules!

After birds and trains, we are finally ready for visiting the wineries.
First off is Rochelle, where we get an introduction to wine tasting and try wines with different types of grapes. (I get aggrevated by drinking Merlot). Afterwords, we get to taste different types of fudge (mmmmmm)
Then we head off to Chandon, which is mainly known for their production of champagne from Champagne and sparling wine in other countries (like here in Australia).
We even got the friendly conductor to take a picture for us. From left to right: Rob the Canadian matematician with Dennis the Conductors hat, hatless and a bit envious me and Tirill the visiting Norwegian

It was a great movie and nice to sit amongst the colorful crowd of people and picnic blankets, trees and flowers, and bolts of lightning and bats!
I even saw a shooting star!
Me and visiting Norwegian Tirill starts the Chinese New Year day with dim sum at Bok Choy Tang on federation square and then head off to Chinatown where lots of dragons were loose!
Apparently, the dragon is lured to the restaurant by cabbage.Then the dragon claims his red packets from the restaurant either through the window or the front door. The dragon is supposed to give luck to the restaurant this year! When the dragon is gone, lots of fire crackers go off making the lovely big crowd of people putting their hands over their and their kids ears.
