Weekly Small Pleasures #8

I had a pretty engaging week with lots of social activities. Sometimes the weekends are more busy and occupied than the weekdays that  we wish we have a day or two extra to recover before hitting the busy week again. Well, my weekly pleasures for the last week are-

Weekly Pleasure #8

1. Attended an African festival held in the neighbouring suburb. This is an annual festival that is organised to celebrate vibrant African culture, arts and music. More than 3000 people attended the event. The Ethiopian coffee was the best part of the festival.

2. Went to the “pick your own” farm and orchard located 1.5 hours drive from Sydney. Thought my in-laws and children would love it. We all had a great time. Experienced the fun of harvesting apples from the tree for the first time in my life. Loved it!

3. After we finished the apple picking we were looking for a park nearby to have our food and someone directed us to the botanical garden with is just 10 minutes drive from the farm. And the garden turned out to be one of the best park I  have ever been to. The Blue Mountains Botanic Garden  offers picturesque view and stunningly landscaped gardens as well as interesting display of flora from different parts of the world.

4. I had to attend a birthday party of my cousins daughter on Sunday. The best part of the ceremony was  the venue, an Indian restaurant located near the beach. Being surrounded by beautiful water view provided a pleasant ambience to the venue. Beach, babies and birthday, could not have asked for a better birthday party.

 What are your weekly small pleasures? Would love to hear!


I came across this blog event ( Weekly Small Pleasures – Blog Event) a while ago. I found it quite interesting and have been thinking of sharing my weekly small pleasures too, which I have not been able to start due to one or the other reason. As we enter the brand new week of the brand new year, I think this is the perfect time to begin this journey.

This blog event is simply about remembering and sharing those small things that made you happy during the week; things that made you smile, made you laugh, made you do a happy dance, made your heart silently smile, or they even made you cry for joy.
