Let's Talk About Australia

안녕하세요! (Hello! in Korean)

You should know about now that I love Iraq. You should also know that I love Australia very much.
SO I says to myself, I says 'why don't I write about Australia?' and this is what I am going to do and this is what I am doing BELOW if you should happen to land in Aussie soil :)

While in Iraq, a friend asked me
"Oh how is Australia! So did you drive up to Austria in the holidays?"
"It's a long way away, Austria is."
"Oh is it? How many kilometers away is it then?"
"Oh ONLY 13242 kilometers!" *said ONLY sarcastically*
The yellow dot is Vienna, Austria and the red dot is Perth, Australia

  • Don't confuse Australia for Austria!  Two VERY different countries in different continents.
So now you know WHERE Australia is, you should know WHEN Australia was first established or founded. The 26th of January

So what do you do on Australia day?

I still remember my very first Australia day in 2000 and something. I had KFC in King's park with Swan Lake in front of us and the fireworks above us. Typical. Fun. I love it. I had the Aussie flag on my cheek and Zink on my nose (Coloured sun cream). People were shouting Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! and naturally I would reply with Oi! Oi! Oi! 

When I say Aussie! 
You say Oi! 
Aussie! Aussie! Aussie!  
Oi! Oi! Oi! 

Of course in the month of January it would be summer, SO get out your insect repellent and SPRAY those Mozzies (aka Mosquitoes. Did you know I didn't know mozzies were actually called mosquitoes until I met a very friendly American girl. She had no idea what I was talking about, these 'mozzies') 

Don't forget to Slip Slop Slap Seek and Slide! 

The Australian sun is the harshest in the world, so it is very important to follow Sid the Seagull's message :)

So how do I cover the WHAT? What to do in Australia!!



Rotate? This is Perth City

ANZAC Biscuits for ANZAC day (Australia and New Zealand Army Corp) 
ANZAC Cookies :) yumm

Baklava is not Australian but still...
 I know, I know, I'm missing pavlova. I should make some one day... #WatchThisSpace ;)

WHY is why not? and WHO is me and you :) cliche? unfortunately yes. is it true? of course it's true!

Now if you'd all like to stand up with your hands over your hearts for the Australian National Anthem; 'Advance Australia Fair'

Verse 1
Australians all let us rejoice,
For we are young and free;
We've golden soil and wealth for toil;
Our home is girt by sea;
Our land abounds in nature's gifts
Of beauty rich and rare;
In history's page, let every stage
Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair.

Verse 2
Beneath our radiant Southern Cross
We'll toil with hearts and hands;
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands;
For those who've come across the seas
We've boundless plains to share;
With courage let us all combine
To Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair.

Listen to Julie Anthony perform the National Anthem:


Even though any copyright of Peter Dodds McCormick's original lyrics of Advance Australia Fair has expired, as he
died in 1916, the Commonwealth of Australia does claim copyright on the official lyrics and particular arrangements
of music.Non-commercial use of the anthem is permitted without case-by-case permission, but commercial use 
does require permission.  It's an Honour

SO! I've covered WHERE, WHEN, WHAT, WHY and WHO

Well Ciao for now and I shall leave you with Psy and his Gangnam Style ;)

Sid the Seagull's message :

Thirty years after he first graced our television screens with his Slip, Slop, Slap message, Sid the Seagull is back with a new song that includes all of SunSmart's revised key messages.

(Sid the Seagull sings:) Slip, slop, slap, seek and slide. Have fun outside, but don't get fried.

Slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen, slap on a hat. Seek shade, slide on sunnies - simple as that.

Slip, slop, slap, seek and slide. Have fund outside, but don't get fried.

Slip, slop, slap, seek and slide!
