Karena waktu kami ke Auburn hari Minggu lalu emang sebagus (dan serame) itu, akhirnya kami mutusin kesana lagi kemarin.
Kebetulan pula ada kerjaan di Sydney, jadi pulangnya melipir lagi ke Festival Bunga Sakura di Botanic Garden. Eh pas banget, lagi ada pop up Hello Kitty juga. Anak-anak kecil penggemar kucing seneng banget lah hehe.
Jauh lebih nyaman sih dibanding weekend lalu yang bener-bener padat. Lebih bisa mengagumi festival dan pemandangannya. Orang Malang bilang, kuipa lop! Uapik pol!

Automobiles are marketed under the brands BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce, and motorcycles are marketed under the brand BMW Motorrad. In 2015, BMW was the world's twelfth largest producer of motor vehicles, with 2,279,503 vehicles produced.
The original Mini was a line of British small cars manufactured by the British Motor Corporation, and its successors. Their models included the Morris Mini-Minor and the Austin Seven, the Countryman, Moke, 1275GT and Clubman. Performance versions of these models used the name Cooper, due to a partnership with racing legend John Cooper. The original two-door Mini continued in production until 2000. Development of a successor began in 1995 and the new generation car was launched in 2001. The current Mini range includes the Hardtop/Hatch/Convertible (three-door hatchback), Clubman (estate), Countryman (five-door crossover), Coupe/Roadster and Paceman (three-door crossover based on the Countryman). The Mini was originally a product of the British Motor Corporation, which in 1966 became part of British Motor Holdings. British Motor Holdings merged with Leyland Motors in 1968 to form British Leyland.In the 1980s, British Leyland was broken-up and in 1988 Rover Group, including Mini, was acquired by British Aerospace.In 1994, Rover Group was acquired by BMW. In 2000, Rover Group was broken up by BMW, with BMW retaining the Mini brand.
The Mini Hatch/Hardtop, Clubman, Coupe and Roadster are assembled at BMW's Plant Oxford in Cowley, England. The Mini Convertible and Countryman are assembled at VDL Nedcar in Born (Netherlands), the Mini Hatch/Hardtop is also assembled here besides the Oxford plant.The Paceman was till 2016 assembled by Magna Steyr in Austria. A total of 301,526 Mini vehicles were sold worldwide in 2012.Mini vehicles have been active in rallying and the Mini Cooper S won the Monte Carlo Rally on three occasions, in 1964, 1965 and 1967. Mini has participated in the World Rally Championship since 2011 through the Prodrive WRC Team.
In April 2013, Peter Schwarzenbauer became new Mini's managing director, succeeding Jochen Goller.
We get so caught up in the future, in what we want life to be or think life should be that we often avoid or rush through the current day. In the same way, we look over our past and put ourselves down for all of the “could haves” and “should haves” that we might have done differently. But I’m here to tell you that God loves you in today. God loves me today, right here, right now. Today is all we really have. And if you can remember to focus on one day at a time and thank God for that day and those blessings - then you’re gona turn out alright 📍@mountainrosevineyards ☀️ #WineandWeekends#GodisGood#Faith#swva#loveVA
The arena was commissioned by the Allianz Arena München Stadion GmbH, founded in 2001, and was owned in equal parts by the two football clubs that call it home. The GmbH's CEO was Karl-Heinz Wildmoser, Jr. until the unraveling of the stadium corruption affair (see below). Since then, Bernd Rauch, Peter Kerspe, and Walter Leidecker have led the company. In April 2006, FC Bayern Munich bought out TSV 1860 Munich's 50% share in the arena for a reported €11 million. 1860 managing director Stefan Ziffzer stated that the deal prevented insolvency for the club. The terms of the agreement gave 1860 the right to buy back their 50% share of the arena for the price of sale plus interest anytime before June 2010. In November 2007, 1860 Munich resigned that right. In advance, the income of two friendly-games both clubs shared equally instead of having that money going to Allianz Arena GmbH. Due to financial turbulences of 1860 Munich, Bayern Munich took over all the shares and now owns 100% of the Allianz Arena.

I almost cried at Toastmasters today.
In the midst of some negativity I've been feeling recently, I was reminded how people are grateful for my positive attitude and lean in on my positivity. It's okay to feel down sometimes, but make sure you have a positive group of people you can surround yourself with. 💕

I have been wanting to trek gorillas 🦍 IN THE WILD since my biological anthropology classes in college. One of my majors is anthropology and human evolution/great apes has fascinated me for years 😍 I finally got to see them in their natural habitat within feet of me and yes it was a bit terrifying but so rewarding. Later this year after Vietnam and Cambodia I want to go to the island of Sumatra in Indonesia 🇮🇩 to trek the orangutans 💕 I can’t wait to put together my camera and GoPro videos of my journey.
The arena facade is constructed of 2,874 ETFE-foil air panels that are kept inflated with dry air to a differential pressure of 3.5 Pa.The panels appear white from far away but when examined closely, there are little dots on the panels. When viewed from far away, the eye combines the dots and sees white. When viewed close up however, it is possible to see through the foil. The foil has a thickness of 0.2 mm. Each panel can be independently lit with white, red, or blue light. The panels are lit for each game with the colours of the respective home team—red for Bayern Munich, blue for TSV and white for the German national football team. White is also used when the stadium is a neutral venue, like the 2012 UEFA Champions League Final. Other colours or multicolour or interchanging lighting schemes are theoretically possible, but the Munich Police strongly insists on using a single-colour lighting scheme due to several car accidents on the nearby A9 Autobahn with drivers being distracted by the changing lights.
On 21 October 2002, voters went to the polls to determine whether a new stadium should be built in this location and whether the city of Munich should provide the necessary infrastructure. About two thirds of the voters decided in favor of the proposition. An alternative to constructing the new arena had been a major reconstruction of the Olympic Stadium but this option had been refused by its architect Günther Behnisch.
