Snippets of my Saturday in Bonython Park

Never in my life did I expect that I'll do what I did, but since Mama Carrie was rather interested with the hype surrounding Nutella, we took the bus to Bonython Park.

Only problem? I didn't expect it to be so sunny on an autumn's day. I was standing in the queue under the burning sun until I was about to collapse from the exhaustion. It didn't help that my poor ears were turning tomato red.

  1. Nutella is the one thing I know I shouldn't eat, but have a really hard time giving it up. No need for anything to go with it but a spoon. ;-)

    1. I know right! It's so tempting, Yum List! ^_^ I used to have Nutella on toast for breakfast (as it's more satiating than a bowl of cereal for me) or mixing it with warm milk (a friend's recipe). I've no choice but to limit my consumption of Nutella lately because it's been doing a good job of causing breakouts on my skin (in addition to other factors) and making my throat really sore. =(

  2. You talk about Nutella, but your pictures are all people people and more people. I'm disappointed :( . I can't seem to keep away from Nutella too!

    1. I'm so sorry, CL. =( But that's how popular Nutella is; it drew so many people that I didn't even want to slither around like a snake and ask for permission to take pictures of their food. Maybe if I was a news reporter.... *winks*

      One thing's for sure; I'm not letting myself soak in the sun for this any more (if I can avoid it). =)

  3. wah, i'd never heard of nutella-palooza ... what a quirky festival! i guess it shows the power of nutella, which is capable of drawing so many people to a festival dedicated to it! :D

    1. Not sure why it's called as such, Sean, but I'm sure it could be an Italian word and the organizers wanted something unique? I'll take a shot and say that the crowd who turned up for the Moon Festival (projected amount: 50k, actual amount: 150k) last September was even more!

  4. Ooooo...wish I were there. I love such fairs and festivals...and the weather there is so nice, not like here - I'd rather stay at home, so hot, so humid.

    1. It's still hot here, STP, but there's definitely very little humidity during the day for autumn. I don't really explore the fairs and festivals because the sun's more intense than KL. It can really leave you with a sunburn. =(

  5. These are the things I miss about Australia!

    Glad to see you having a good time. I wish I were there too. I bet my better half would love this festival. The picture of you holding up ice lollies sums up the festival atmosphere. I vote that best picture.

    1. The Nutella festival was alright, HB, but the Moon Lantern Festival drew such a huge crowd that I could barely find a place to sit - and the food trucks all had long lines of hungry people. I do think that Ling will like the Moon Lantern Festival as well, though. =)

      I'm not sure if they'll have this Nutella festival again, but do swing by Adelaide for the Moon Lantern one. You'll be shocked at the folks who'll turn up, trust me.

      Too bad there wasn't any photo competition being organized. =P
