Fun Times in the Valley

Presenting...the Hunter Valley Gardens!!!!!

On Saturday, we went out (again) on a quest to explore Hunter Valley Gardens, which is so far the most creative looking garden I've ever seen here in Australia.

Hunter Valley Gardens is a 16-hectare land made up of 10 differently themed-garden. One reason why we had to look at the map (which they give you upon payment at the entrance) all the time.

Here are some of the gardens there....Indian Mosaic Garden

The Storybook Garden...

The Oriental Garden...

At the Lakes Walk...

It was just so beautiful...I love love love it!!!!

Such a nice place to be a child again, hence, we had a couple of "kulit" photos:

We spent a good five hours at Hunter Valley Gardens. After that, we visited McGuigan's and Rosemount's/Lindemans' Winery for some wine tasting and buy our favorite wines.

Chris wasn't able to drink wine because he was our designated nagkulitan na lang kami sa vineyard hehe.

On the way home, we stopped by Rhodes for a quick shopping spree at Ikea.

Last stop was dinner at Tomodachi, which is now one of my favorite Japanese restaurants (next to Nobu). Too bad they don't have one in the West (not that I know of).
