Boxing Day is a public holiday in the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Hong Kong and countries in the Commonwealth of Nations with a mainly Christian population. In South Africa, this public holiday is now known as the Day of Goodwill. It is based on the tradition of giving gifts to the less fortunate members of society. Contemporary Boxing Day in many countries is now a "shopping holiday" associated with after-Christmas sales. (read more here from Wikipedia)

Today is Boxing Day. A day after Christmas. From where i come from, Boxing Day is not known much. In my country, the day after Christmas, some folks would already be back to work. And for some other luckier folks, they would still be in a festive holiday mood and maybe planning another big bang bash for the New Year.

Well, my Boxing Day was quite alright. I went with Bebe J's folks to the park. After being here a week, i still have not walked to the park yet even though its just next door. Beautiful day as the sun was really bright. But as Bebe J's dad says, its kinda like a fake sun. Its not warm. Just bright and sunny.

Even when you hang your laundry out in the bright ole sunshine here, none of the clothes get dry. hahahhahaa.. kinda tickles me cos the laundry will be dancing on the clothes line.. out on the line for just a breather.. but we kinda have to put it in the dryer later. None of the laundry gets dry in the fake sun.

Today i got some beautiful shots of the park. I will put it up slowly but surely.

I saw some dogs at the park too. Kinda makes me smile when i see dogs. And i think of the ones i left behind... Dommy and Piper. Dogs and their funny antics. There was this grey small dog who keep coming back to me... and running back quickly to the owner. Kinda like a fast forward button dog. hahahahaha.. it just darts around.

This white doggie even jump on my lap to say hi when it passes by. Haha.. so cute.

A green head ducky. I don't know what kind of duck this is... but i only see wooden ones at home. People in my country like to buy wooden replicas of this ducky as decorative items for the house. But this duck is REAL. Wow! I am kinda like coming out from the bottom of a rock.

And this.. is the beautiful park. So peaceful and serene. Postcard picture perfect. I was so in awe when the birds took flight. So many things i have forgotten while in my mad rushed life back home. And this holiday without my bb and all my connections, made me realise that sometimes all the mad rush is not worthwhile. I found some parts of my life back. When i was young and carefree while being silly.

Hope you all enjoyed the pics. I took about 100 pics and some videos today. Haha.. Its dangerous to let me have a camera in my hands. Good thing is everything is digital. I'll show you all more the next time. Adios amigos.
